Birthday Beauty

I got some pretty great beauty products for my birthday. Does my family know me or what? I can't wait to try out this oxygen peel from Philosophy. I am already addicted to Philosophy's cleanser, Purity and the moisturizer Hope in a Jar. Philosophy+My Skin=The Perfect Match because my skin has never looked or felt better since I started using Purity. The peel has great reviews and it claims to reduce oiliness and minimize pores. I can't wait to try it out. I'm going to start this Sunday!

I returned the other Remington straightner with the extra long plates because the handle got too hot and I burnt my fingers. I haven't tried this one out yet, but it's a standard 1'' plated Remington (but with an pretty design). I love the pink leopard, don't you?

Lorac Couture Shine in Vintage

When I had my bridal makeup trial run, the makeup artist used this pretty, neutral lip gloss. I knew I had to have it and so, my soon to be sister in law surprised me with this for my birthday along with the next holy grail product below, Brow Zings!

The MUA also used this product on me- Benefit Brow Zings (in dark) and I was amazed at what a difference it made. I filled my brows in with regular eyeshadow but this is a wax and shadow duo and the color and definition that it gives is unbelievable! First you define your brows with the colored wax and set it with the powder. It comes with a mini pair of tweezers, and angled brush for the wax, and a blending brush for the powder. This is definitely a holy grail product for me now. I'm not sure how I ever did my makeup without it.

My grandmother got me what she refers to as "the signature scent of a bride." It's the original Vera Wang and it smells sooo pretty-very fresh and light.
