My Birthday Haul

June is my birthday month and what a birthday it was. After midnight I was surprised with a galaxy chocolate cake and gifts that was shortly followed by a huge photoshoot of my cake, me with my cake... you get the point haha.

So this is just an overview of what I got on my birthday if you are into seeing these type of things then you are going to love this post!

So here's a list of what I was gifted:
Pandora pendant
A set of three Essie nail polishes
An assortment of accessories from Accessorize
A box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates
A Estee Lauder make-up bag
A Dana Levy evil eye bracelet
Cute girly keychains
A b&W handbag
Pink stationery set
A glossier parcel with 4 products

Forever grateful to the Mr and really loving everything! I know I will definitely use and wear everything. I have already put my Pandora pendant on my everyday chain and I have been wearing it ever since. I really love evil eye jewellery and I knew that I wanted to own a Dana Levy piece in my collection, like real soon so this was the perfect time to pick a pretty and dainty bracelet that is perfect for everyday wear.
Glossier is one brand that I really wanted to try, I have heard so much about it and I am glad that I was able to choose some products to try, I will definitely be reviewing my parcel in another post.
I loved that nearly everything was pink and so me! If there is anything you would like me to review in another post then please let me know in the comments below.

Hope you enjoyed this mini post and hope you all are well!

Wet n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals Review

Left: without flash and right: with flash

The one product I love and never skip applying are highlighters. No doubt. I have used many highlighters, from cream formulations to powder ones but there was one particular one that I had not tried yet. I have seen a fair amount of reviews/swatches of the Wet n wild Megaglo highlighter and I was amazed...
I honestly don't know why it took me so long to buy this! It's easily available to buy from a drugstore, it's purse friendly and the results are similar to high end brands. Read on to see why you need this in your life!

Product description:
Shimmer and shine in all the right places with the same formula as our must-have MegaGlo Highlighting Powder. Its ultra-pearly finish and easy-to-blend formula makes it a fan favorite! The silky smooth, highly-pigmented powder gives an all over glow when applied to the cheek bones, brow bone, and cupid’s bow (wetnwildbeauty.com).

Wet n Wild recently came to the UK in all Boots stores and I was honestly so happy. The actual brand is American and it can be hard sometimes to source products that are from overseas so it was great to see that my local boots had everything stocked and most importantly I could swatch the products easily and see if I wanted to buy it or not.
This particular highlighter comes in two shades: Precious Metals which is a rose gold shade with gold shimmer and Blossom Glow which is a pale icy pink shade with a pearlescent sheen!! It was hard to pick one at first but seeing as I have never really opted for a much warmer toned highlighter I then went for Precious Metals and it did not disappoint.

Can we just take a moment to fully appreciate the embossed flower design!! It's so pretty that I actually don't use my brush on it, haha! I just don't want to ruin that gorgeous design... this definitely gives the product a much higher end feel and look. It's something unique that you don't see in affordable brands.
The pigment feels soft and is very easy to work with and to blend. The shimmer is very fine and is so build-able. You can create a easy natural glowy look to a blinding, full on glam look. The choice is totally yours.

I wanted to show you the swatches with both flash and no flash and it honestly looks so pretty! This can definitely suit any skintone and I was amazed at how easy it was to blend for a subtle highlight and pack on for a more dramatic highlight. The texture isn't soft at touch but it's still very easy to work with. Ever since I have bought this, I have been wearing this nearly everyday. I just cannot put it down and I know I will hit pan very soon. I can now understand why this is one of Wet n Wild's bestsellers! I know I will be repurchasing this and also try the Blossom Glow edition in this range.

Easily achieve the glow of your dreams with this product, warm and shimmery. Perfect for everyday use, day or night (or both!) I LOVE this and this is something that has a permanent place in my make-up bag!
