Birthday Makeup: Part II

Now that you've had a look at the birthday surprises & shopping post, here's the makeup I picked up on the day..... I surprised myself considering I didn't buy more but it seems I have slightly settled with how much I have in my collection right now & I'm happy with where it's at. 

First item purchased on the day was the always timeless Chanel.
I swatched a few items in-store & walked out with a powder blush in 79 Rouge.
This is probably the boldest red blush I now own & I can't wait to swatch this for everyone.
On a side note, the ladies at the Chanel boutique are incredibly lovely to talk to, I'd like to thank Elaine for her wonderful customer service & for giving me a complimentary makeup voucher to use whenever I please...what a wonderful surprise!

I then picked up my first Hourglass product with the Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light. I'm not a huge fan of the packaging (fingerprints will drive me crazy to clean off) but the product is beautiful & I'm excited to try this out considering so many of my viewers have told me how much they loved the Hourglass powders.

Now I am fully aware there is a Top Shop store on Chapel Street in Melbourne but I've never wanted to go considering its apparently very small & limited on products...whilst at the Emporium I was lucky enough to head straight to the New TopShop makeup aisle & picked out three new products.

I purchased a bronzer in 'Mohawk', cream blush in 'Flush' & a matte lipstick in 'Beguiled' (another deep plum).
All perfect choices for me & I can't wait to play around with them.

I've gone back & forth with myself over this item, I see & hear everyone raving about the NARS 'Laguna' bronzer so I finally picked this up from Mecca.
Still unused but I will hopefully love this like so many other beauty gurus! 

Last item for the day was another Tom Ford lipstick.....I can't get enough of the slick packaging & how well these lipsticks last on the lips.
It took me a good two weeks to try my first TF lipstick as I didn't want to damage the signature on the tip but when spending that type of money you definitely can't waste it.
This time I purchased Sable Smoke which is a very popular nude shade.
(the TF products have now gone up in Australia so please be aware of this when heading in store)

To say the least I had a wonderful shopping day & birthday, if you haven't seen it here to see the presents I received & what else I picked up on my shopping day...

Thankyou again to everyone that wished me a Happy Birthday, all your lovely private messages were so sweet & I am so happy I have some wonderful & supporting viewers out there. 
Now I'm off to finish up the rest of my birthday cake!
