18th birthday haul!

As some of you who read my last post 'AN UPDATE' will know, I turned 18 on the 19th of April. I had a truly    lovely day, and I was utterly utterly spoilt. During the day I got up with my family quite early as I went to college, opened some cards and my beautiful ring and everyone else went off to work. I had a pretty average day at college, got fussed over a lot and we went to McDonalds for lunch which was lush! In the evening a coach load of my friends all came to my house for pre-drinks and cake and then we all went off in the coach to Brighton clubbing. It was an unreal day and night and it was so lovely to be able to use my own ID!  These are not all the presents I got, I got some other lovely things and money from family and things. These are just a little selection. I am not making this to brag, I just wanted to share with everyone what I got for my birthday!

All my presents together :)
My aaaamazing make-up themed birthday cake! It was soooo delicious :)
 My friends and family know me so well, well enough to get me a load of benefit makeup. I love the range of products that benefit gives, and I think the names of products and packaging is diviineeeee.

 I got two new benefit lipsticks, I've never actually tried their lipsticks before but I've worn them both non-stop since my birthday; the formulation is so creamy and they just glide onto the lips. They last a good couple of hours. I got the colour 'Flirt Alert' which is a vibrant, true pillar box red and 'Skinny Dip' Which is a lipstick from their 'Silky finish' range, so it's super moisturising and feels quite balmy and glossy on the lips. It looks gorgeous, and is definitely a nudey, dark pink 'my lips but better' shade, great for everyday.
 I was also lucky enough to get two benefit mascaras; 'they're real' and 'BAD gal lash' both of which I've had before, But if you ask me you can never have too many mascaras. Especially amazing Benefit ones like these.
