Haul blog! Buying myself birthday treats!

So my birthday is this Sunday, my 21st, and I thought I would treat myself to a few things when I was out this morning and I thought I would share them on here! Since there is one or two, mainly one, on here that are more expensive than my usual price range I thought I would show you guys!

Above: Everything I bought!

As you can see I got a few bits, mostly costly treats I wouldn't usually buy myself! I expect I'll be doing reviews on almost everything you see above!

I rarely wear lashes, in fact the last time I ever wore them I'm sure was my 20th! I have been eyeing these up for a while as I am a pretty big fan of Katy Perry and well they all look so pretty. I've already messed around with these to see if I can apply them this weekend for my birthday and they look so natural but add length to my lashes. I'll probably end up wearing these Saturday!

This next one was kind of just because I have heard so many good reviews. I have oily eyelids so my eyeshadow tends to crease up as I wear it which is annoying when I like doing eyeshadow and I spend so much time on it! A lot of people have said these are similar to MAC paint pots I believe which if they are is quiet impressive. I bought this to use as a base and I bought the black version in 60 - Timeless black. i intend to do a review on this so expect one soon!

This next one I just had to get, everyone has been raving about this concealer and I thought I may as well. Okay admittedly I don't need a fantastic concealer, I only ever conceal under my eyes and my £1.99 Natural Collection concealer does the job. But how could I not try it out after all the hype? One thing I have to stay is I have confidence in its claims it lasts 16 hours. I swatched this on my hand in the store and forgot about it till an hour later on the journey home, I tried to wipe it away and it wouldn't be budge!

Okay so this one I didn't buy, I got it free with a magazine but this is basically a sort of off white nail color, more of a pink I would say with brown undertones with some nail art beads. Basically the same as the nail constellations I reviewed here. I will probably do a review of these or at least a nail art look in the future! I imagine they will be similar to the MUA ones so I may get a bit of use from them.

I bought this basically for two reasons. One, I was buying the St Tropez tanning solution so I thought I best has and Two, my FakeBake one is covered and I can't wash it as my washer has decided to break this week, lucky me aye)! So £4 for a new tanning mitt wasn't too bad to try out a new product with. I again have used this to apply a patch test of this on my skin just and it seems like a soft tanning mitt!

So after trying Fake Bake I thought for my birthday I would splurge a little and try this one next as my FakeBake is running out. I definitely intend to review this for the price of it and with summer coming up but I will let you guys know how it goes. I can't really tell much from the patch test I have done on my leg but I'm having no allergic reaction to it which is what I initially test for so yay! 

So that is pretty much it! I like using birthday money to treat myself as I don't really buy high end products all year round so this was nice to do. I will definitely be reviewing from some of these products so let me know if there are any in particular you would like reviewing!

Are there any products you like to splurge on for your birthday? Whats your favorite item to treat yourself to? Let me know! And let me know if you have tried any of these products!
