I'll start with what I got my friend Liz for her 22nd birthday on 5th November, I know! so prepared!!
What I'm planning to do is just get lots of little things for her to play with and get her excited about make up, I couldnt think of one thing to ger her so it seems perfect! I want to put them all together in a sweet box. The great thing is that it will all be affordable and hopefully everything that she will use!!
So i'll begin!
These are false lashes which give such a lovely natural but dramatic look, i got these from work for a couple pounds but i got a few packets and i could not put them on, but she's quite good at putting on lashes, she does it all the time, so hopefully she'll like these!
This I got online (RRP £5.99!) and it looked more pink shimmer but when it arrived it's more cherry shimmer, still lovely though I really want it!!
I knew she used the purple false lash of this range so I originally got her that but she was round the other night and I saw it in her bag with a yellow lid, when asked about it she said the purple one was rubbish so she swapped the brush with her old collosal one, i was like eeek! so I went back and exchanged it! luckily it's in packaging! this cost like £5 with my store discount!
Next is this! I'm so excited about them!
Benefit Shimmer Shakers! At work I saw these and thought they were just regular shimmer pots with an expensive name, thus expensive price tag, but I got these for a reduced price rather than the £27 before and oh gosh I love them!
Here are the colours;
They're so lovely, I swatched some on my hands (just a tiny bit as it's a gift) and even a tiny bit did loads! they're so pigmented and the glitter is noticable but without being overbearing!
I adore them!!!
This cost me like £10 back at christmas time, I smelt it once at work and liked it so when I saw this going for cheap I bought it for myself, but i just never used it! So luckily it was still in the box so she can get much more use from it than me!
So thats what I've got her for her birthday, last year I got her a digital camera so this year is nothing compaired!
Next on with Christmas presents! I know! So prepared ;D!!
I also got these for a great deal online,
They cost me like £8.50 each for 100ml ! AMAZING. I originally wanted to get Liz this (fairy dust) 50ml which was going for £10 and Jaz Britney Spears Curious 50ml for £10 thus spending £20 all together, but 2 days with them in my basket waiting for payday, i returned to the site and the prices had changed, curious was up to like £15 and the 50ml fairy dust was £10! So i'd be spending much more than I wanted so I thought "hmm i'll just buy two fairy dusts for £20 together" then when I clicked on the fairy dust it said "more like this" and the 100ml was £8.50... cheaper than the 50ml! So I ordered two :)
I love the packaging, unfortunatly I cant take it out of the box as it's a gift but it's a pretty simplistic classic bottle :)
The perfume on the right is the packaging without the sleeve :)
I Love buying gifts and I hope they both love their presents!!!!
What do you think?
