Hi guys! I’ve been wanting to write this blog post for so long, but my Kylie Cosmetics order took over 5 weeks to arrive. I was so happy to receive it today, and knew that I had to write this blog post right away.
Anyways, my birthday was on the 30th May and I turned 16 years old this year. Most of what I received was money, and a lot of it was spent on clothing which I am not including in this post. With the remaining money, I purchased some makeup and books, but I did receive some gifts from my friends.
Also, I just wanted to let you know that all the pictures were taken on my iPhone SE so the quality isn’t as good as it was in my previous posts. I tried using the same camera I usually use but it doesn’t seem to be working properly, which, I think, is due to the fact that it isn’t particularly new. I really hope that they still look fine though!
Overview of some of the products
I had been wanting this palette for a while and was so happy when my sister said that she would get it for my birthday. She bought me the Too Faced Peanut Butter & Honey Eyeshadow Palette and so far I really like it! The packaging is the cutest and it smells so good too!

With some of the money I received, I purchased a new Powder Contour Kit from New Look because I had really hit pan on my other one. I also purchased my first ever Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara from MAC and I love it so much! It’s a game changer and I would definitely repurchase it!

Finally, I purchased the new In Love With the Koko Liquid Lip Kollection from Kylie Cosmetics which arrived today. So far I’ve worn ‘Bunny’ and ‘Doll’ and I’m in love! I’m so happy that I bought them, even though it took forever to arrive.

The first book I received was from one of my best friends and she bought me a copy of ‘Note to Self’ by Connor Franta. I read it within 2 days and I really liked it! I don’t usually read those type of books, I usually prefer to read a proper story, but I did really like this one. I loved the fact that he included some poems in it too.
One of my friends bought me this book called ‘Heartless’ by Marissa Meyer which I have yet to read but it does look good! Judging by the description, it doesn’t look like anything else I’ve read before.
One of my best friends bought me two books: ‘Eleanor & Park’ by Rainbow Rowell and ‘Holding Up the Universe’ by Jennifer Niven. I read them both in such little time- I couldn’t put them down! I really enjoyed reading them, especially ‘Eleanor & Park’. It’s definitely one of my all time favourites!
With some of the money I received, I purchased ‘Windfall’ by Jennifer E. Smith which I am currently reading and ‘Lying About Last Summer’ by Sue Wallman which I have yet to read.

I had to purchase myself a copy of ‘Harry Styles’ by, of course, Harry Styles. I pre ordered a limited edition copy and am so happy with it! I listen to it everyday whilst I apply my makeup. The cover and images inside are beautiful too!

Lastly, my best friend bought me a cosmetics case of Pink Panther from Women’s Secret which came with a pair of socks which aren’t pictured. I didn’t want to put this under the ‘makeup’ category because it’s not exactly makeup, however I do use it to hold my skincare products when I travel. I love that it has Pink Panther on it and the fact that it’s pink is a huge plus because, as most of you know, it’s my favourite colour. I really love the print on the inside too!

So that’s what I got for my birthday this year! I’m so grateful for what I’ve received, and by no means did I mean to brag or anything! I’m just simply showing you guys what I got since it was requested!
Thank you so much for reading, please leave a ‘like’ if you enjoyed it! Also, leave a comment if you own anything I received and let me know if you like it/them!
Thank you so much for reading, I’ll see you in my next one xx
