Birthday Haul

I love beauty hauls and since it was recently my birthday I thought why not keep things light hearted and share some of my recent beauty purchases/presents? Let's begin!

Clarins Blue Orchid Oil
I love this oil, but the truth is I haven't had this in my collection for years. After recommending this to a friend I had a 'I need that back in my life' kind of moment. From what I remember this oil is super moisturizing and leaves your skin looking beautiful. However one of my favourite qualities is should you want to have a lazy skincare moment you can just use this on clean skin and be done. Again haven't had this in my collection for years so I am excited to see if it lives up to the hype.

Guerlain Super Lips
Guerlain came out with a lip balm! Typically I wouldn't splurge, but since it was my birthday I thought this would be a fun little treat. A quick search online lead to mixed reviews so I am excited to share my findings with you. Thus far I am liking Super Lips, but I've only tried it a handful of times.

Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil
I love my FaceShop brow pencil, but after years of using it I was craving something new. I knew I wanted a slanted pencil, I also wanted something easy to use and long wearing. My list of requirements lead me straight to the Benefit. Again I've only tried this for a week, but thus far I'm loving this! The product itself is the perfect shade for me, the triangle shaped pencil makes it easy to hold and the spooly is perfectly small and tapered. I am loving this!

This isn't a sponsored post  and there are no affiliate links here. I wanted to mention to my Canadian beauty lovers that I ordered off Beauty Boutique (here) and I have nothing but positive things to say. Firstly shipping was quick. Secondly everything came beautifully packaged. Thirdly there were tons of generous samples to choose from.

Gimme Brow
One of the samples was this Gimme Brow. This brow gel adds fibres to the brows and leaves a slight tint of colour. I know there are tons of people who love this so I am eagerly looking forward to using it.

They're Real! Gift Set
This generous gift came with a mini mascara, mini eye liner and sample sized makeup remover. I've yet to try any of these products, but I look forward to diving in ASAP.

Yup that is my oh so quick birthday goodies haul. I hope all of you had an amazing birthday!
