Hey everyone and thanks for coming back to read another post on Allison In Wonderland! Today’s post is going to be all about a few things that I got for my 20th birthday! If you missed out on last week’s birthday post, make sure to check it out here! I hope you enjoy!
For my birthday this year, I received some makeup items that I’ve been wanting for a while! These products are very random but I already know they’re going to be staples in my everyday makeup routine. Starting off with primer, I got Benefit’s the POREfessional. This product is perfect for applying under your concealer or foundation to make your pores look like they don’t exist! Moving on, the next product I got was the Naked 2 Basics palette. I’ve had the first Naked Basics palette for about two years now and I have completely worn it out. I’m someone who wears mostly neutral makeup, so these kinds of palettes are absolutely perfect for me! The next item is my Smashbox bronzer in Deep Matte. I think this is the product I’m most excited for! I’ve had such a hard time finding a bronzer that goes well with my skin tone (and doesn’t look to orange-y) that I’d almost given up, so I’m so thankful I found this one! It’s the perfect mix of warm and bold and it’s very build-able! The last makeup product I have to share is my Urban Decay de-slick setting spray! This is definitely a product I’ve been needing because sometimes I have my makeup on for 14 hours at a time and by the end of the day, it’s not looking so good anymore. I’m excited to see how much this will help!
The next item I got for my birthday is a black, foldover, crossbody bag. It’s from Nordstrom and it can hold SO MANY THINGS. I was looking for a bag that was a little bigger than the one I already have but not so big that it was overwhelming and this is my perfect solution. Since it folds over, if you need to take a planner or notebook with you, you can just flip it up and carry it like that; it’s awesome!
The last item on my list to share is this incredible-smelling candle. I believe it was purchased from Target and it has completely taken over my bedroom. I’ve used up so much of it already and I’ve only had it for a week! I definitely recommend going out and getting one if you’re a fan of lavender and thyme.
That’s all for my birthday haul, thanks for reading! Make sure to come back next week for another fun post. Have a great week!
