I just recently posted a blog about My Birthday Wishlist, and since my birthday just passed I am here to share what I received! As you can see from the photo above, I got a lot of makeup! So let’s jump into what gifts I received for my birthday!
First thing that caught my eye were some samples that were super fun to play with! I got DevaCurl Buildup Buster, Kopari coconut body glow, and Makeup Forever blush! I’ve wanted to try these products and now that I have samples I can see if they’re worth purchasing.
Next I got a whole bunch of deluxe size samples which are really cute! I love getting deluxe size products that I’ve been dying to purchase, so I don’t have to buy them right away! And these mini size versions of the products are super cute.
Rewards Bazaar from Sephora is an amazing reward system for spending money there, and a great extra when throwing them in a gift. My boyfriend got me so much makeup that he made VIB Rouge, gave me his birthday gift, and got me a ton of items for me off of the Rewards Bazaar.
Elf makeup is super underrated and I love it so much! I got a lot of elf makeup on my birthday. I got their highlighting palette, a gel eyeliner, a matte lipstick in shade Berry Sorbet, their glow sticks, a glow lotion and their multi blender massage brush!
I got Ulta Beauty makeup for my birthday as well. This includes the new Melisa Michelle Ulta palette, and an Ulta makeup bag containing small face, and eyeshadow palette, an Ulta mascara, an Ulta mirror and sharpener. It also contained a magenta colored lip crayon, an Ulta lip primer, a tinted shadow primer, a double sided liner with shades magenta and black, as well as a blush brush and an Ulta lipgloss.
I was very lucky to get a ton of Mac products! I got the Mac Prep + Prime spray, a Mac paint pot in shade Soft Ochre and three Mac lipsticks in shades Yellow You Dare, Jean Genie, and Gritty Girl.
The two Mac lipsticks not pictured that I received was Velvet Teddy and Deep Rooted.
Next I got the Lorac’s Pirates of the Caribbean palette which is super pigmented and it came with a black eyeliner. I also got the Shade and Light eye palette in Sage as well as Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion.
I had also received the Tarte tarteist volume III contour palette, and Tarte’s new tight and bright face masks. As well as a coveted brand for me Jeffree Star, I was so lucky to get a liquid lip in shade Deceased and the Peach Goddess Skin Frost!
I was gifted another Elf product, but this time it was from Elf’s skincare line (which is amazing). I got the Elf Hydrating Gel Mist, which is a quick Mist to help moisturize the skin. I got a NYX glitter primer for all of those glitter shadows and pigments, as well as the Alchemist holographic palette from Kat Von D! And another amazing skincare item, Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask!
Next I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette! I have heard a lot of negativity on this palette, but I will be trying this myself to see if it works for me or not! I had also received Tatcha luminous dewy skin mist, which is a killer product! And no, that little gray ball isn’t lint, I promise, it’s a beautiful mermaid Pandora charm!
I also received a new vanity mirror from Conair that has built in LED lighting and is obviously rose gold. I got a tumbler cup… which we all know I’m obsessed with those and the Urban Decay’s Naked Heat eyeshadow palette! And the black rectangle in the picture is actually a Bluetooth speaker made by Oontz!
I also got a package of eyeshadow brushes by Sephora, farsali rose gold elixir (which was all the rage on Instagram a year or two ago and is now in Sephora), a stila eyeliner in periwinkle. I also got a Too Faced Born this Way setting powder, the BECCA cosmetics liquid shimmering perfecter in Champagne Pop from Jaclyn Hill’s collab with BECCA cosmetics. I also got a Pretty Vulgar eyeshadow palette!
What I also got was a Kate Spade wallet in the blush pink color. I also got a Blue Snowball Ice microphone for my YouTube channel I am starting. I got an Estee Lauder makeup bag my parents got me containing two lipsticks in the shades Insolent Plum, and Intense Nude as well as a lip pencil in Rose.
My good friend got me a ton of candy which is my weakness. It’s all my favorite candies too, which means the diet will definitely be put on hold until all of it is eaten! And she had also gotten me an Elf baked highlighter and blush in Rose Gold as well as a Wet N’ Wild liquid lipstick in Give Me Mocha.
I also got a few cards with money and gift cards inside of them from my friends and family. I also got Gertrude Hawk chocolate covered pretzels, and a Sephora gift card!
Additionally, from my boyfriend (if the first 13 pictures didn’t have enough makeup) I got Marc Jacobs eye-conic eyeshadow palettes in Smartorial, Scandalust, and Glambition. Those palettes came with one Marc Jacobs shadow primer each. And I also got the Marc Jacobs Glow Stick in Spotlight.
My sorority sister got me a very thoughtful and cute gift! She got a vintage camera organizer for me to keep my makeup brushes in and a succulent in a blush pink pot because I love that color!
From both of my amazing sisters, I got amazing presents. My eldest sister got me the Sonia Kashuk brushes and makeup case pictured above, as well as an S necklace! And my middle sister got me a gift card to my two guilty pleasure stores, Target and Sephora.
As well as the Estee Lauder makeup bag my parents got me, a 5 point crown necklace. This is special to me because it’s the symbol of my sorority.
A best friend of mine is in a different sorority than me but made me a decorative wooden plank for my birthday. As well as matching patterns for our sorority letter shirts! Such a sweet and thoughtful gift.
My best friend got me a perfume sampler from Sephora! This is great because I can bring the voucher inside the box to my local Sephora and redeem a full size perfume from the collection on the box.
Another sorority sister of mine, that’s actually in my family, got me a thoughtful gift as well! I got a lipstick from the brand Ecru NY in shade Mauve and a black mascara from the same company. I also got perfume in Alien which came with a matching lotion and Chloe. I also got a bracelet with my sorority ZTA on it. And the last thing she gave me was a bottle of Pinot Grigio to drink for my 21st next year!
And lastly I got a pink tulle skirt and comfy pink faux fur shoes from my boyfriend! They’re so beautiful!
I’m so thankful for everyone who got me gifts for my birthday and got a lot of the stuff I wanted on my birthday wishlist. Comment down below what you want for your upcoming birthday.
