It is the end of June, and this means the end of my favourite month of the year. I usually got a few discounts and gifts for my birthday and I had a blast shopping (nope! not gonna lie).
Just sharing what I got – my birthday haul from a few trips of collective shopping. Most (all actually) came with a birthday discount.
For those birthday is coming, look out for the brand/store below, maybe you can get massive birthday discount for your birthday month too.
Please don’t mistaken me as “showing off”, I just like to share with you, my readers what I got. Maybe you can comment down below what you got for your birthday too. Sharing is caring! (not sure this appropriate for this context, but yeah)
1) Kiehl’s Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit body lotion and Vanilla & Cedarwood body wash in travel size (65ml).
I got these two as birthday gifts from Kiehl’s FOC as I am a member (Friends of Kiehl’s). Both smells divine and not too little. Nice for travel. Kiehl’s also include 10% discount of any item. I bought Kiehl’s Blue Herbal Moisturiser for my husband. It is a nice light-weighted moisturiser with salicylic acid to treat and prevent acne. My hubs tried the sample and loved it. So I bought the full size one for him.
2) The Body Shop Peach Cream Body Scrub
I ran out of body scrub and had been waiting for my birthday discount to get The Body Shop body scrub. The Body shop had huge up to 70% sale but during that time, only body polish featured (I bought Satsuma Body Polish). I love The Body Shop’s body scrub more as it is more abrasive and my skin felt so soft and smooth every time I used it. The Peach cream is a new scent. At the store, I was contemplating between the Peach Cream one and the Raspberry jelly body scrub. Both smelled so yummy and fruity. I ended up choosing the Peach Cream Body Scrub because the scent is not too overpowering.
3) Inglot’s Matte Lipstick in 244 and O2M Breathable nail polish Top Coat.
As a member I had a makeover coupon with Inglot and 10% birthday discount. I use my makeover coupon and was dolled up for my birthday dinner with hubs.
Inglot products used for the makeover
Then I bought Inglot’s matte lipstick in 244. This is a natural pinkish nude that is not drying and beautiful because the finish is just so flawless. It does not seeps into the lip line, hence beautiful matte lips. I think 244 is a great shade for work.
I had to grab O2M breathable Top Coat because I need one to pair with the Base Coat and my O2M breathable nail polish 676.
4) Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in no. 54 and Little Round Pot Blush in no.33 Lilas D’or.
I had my makeover in Inglot Sunway Pyramid. As I don’t usually come to that part of town, I took the opportunity to go to the new Bourjois store and I just had to grab the well-raved Bourjois Helathy Mix foundation. I have been wearing this almost everyday to work for the past week and so far, I like it. Still experimenting with this foundation. (Review in another post,perhaps?!)
I also picked Lilas D’or blush because I haven’y own this shade before. It is a medium rosy pink with gold shimmer. The shimmer is intense just like NARS Orgasm blush but this one is more Rosy then coral. I also intrigued with the cute concave-shaped brush that comes with the blush.
5) Sephora birthday haul.
For every girls who is a Sephora fan like me, a complimentary birthday gift is given. This year, I received a mini lip glosses set from their own brand. There 4 tiny lip glosses (only 0.041oz each) and the shades are – cream nude, bubblegum pink, shiny corally pink and glittery raspberry.
Sephora also offer double points on any purchase during the birthday month. I bought Sephora Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner in Green Moss and NYX Natural (Naturel) eye shadow palette (just because I had the Smokey eye shadow palette and wanted to complete the collection) Plus, I love Neutral shades eye shadow, for only RM30, it is irresistible. I also bought the new Too Faced Melted liquid lipstick in Fuchsia.
I was lucky as there were an ongoing eyeliner promotion: spend minimum RM100, free one Sephora eye glitter+primer ( I got Blue glitter) and Sephora Glitter eyeliner +mascara duo (I got Gold).
Hence, this is the end of my 2014 birthday haul. Feel free to request a review on specific item if you guys are curious. Thanks for reading!
