Birthday | I got a lil’ somethin’

My birthday was a while ago which means I got presents! Because Lilly and Ellie don’t live near me, I only saw them again for our graduation ceremony, so I wasn’t able to receive the gifts they got me until then. I figured today I’d show you what the chicas got me.

They pooled their resources together and enlisted the help of Ellie’s dad. They send Ellie’s dad on a trip to Ulta while he was in the US for business, which I gather had some funny results. He was a little out of his depth, apparently… 😀

I’m a sucker for a nude eyepalette, so I was so excited when I opened the wrapping and out came this puppy: The Balm’s Nude ‘Tude!

It’s an absolute stunner, and I love The Balm’s cruelty-free attitude.

Ellie and Lilly had also got me the Real Techniques eye brushes set. I’d been drooling over this for a long time, but I’d never gotten around to actually buying it for myself. So I’m very happy that the girls were able to amend that!

And they’re so soft! (And also cruelty-free, yay!) Aren’t they beauties?! The girls know me so well!
Thanks again for the presents, Ellie and Lilly.

I love them! Now that the weather is a bit better and the sun is shining a little more lately, I could take some pictures and do some reviews if anyone’s interested… 🙂
