So it was my birthday on Friday I was 26 wahhh, I’m getting so close to 30!! Scary times!! But because I’m going to America next week I didn’t really ask for much or want to celeibrate to be honest. I had my eye on a few little makeup sets I had seen on cult beauty and beauty bay but apart from that I didn’t need much else. As I knew I would be buying lots in America.
Well I did have a nice big surprise, my boyfriend surprised me with this amazing makeup themed cake!! It’s insane and I’ve never seen anything like it. It had so much detail and you could tell a lot of work went into it. He said he told them exactly what he wanted down to the makeup that was on it, like the naked palettes and MAC Makeup., bless him. So cute!! I’m so glad he understands and supports my makeup addiction.
It’s crazy how much detail it had, the main cake was the Sephora shopping bag with all the makeup coming out, and then next to it had a MAC bag and ulta bag that was made out of rice krispies and the rest was all made out of fondant. The actual cake inside was chocolate brownie and it tasted absolutely amazing!! It literally melted in the mouth and was so soft! It was yummy!!
As you can imagine it went down a treat with my family and I cut bits off to give everyone which was devastating to do but I obviously I didn’t want to waste it.
I’ve got plenty of pictures to look back on luckily.
I got some mini makeup sets that I really wanted including the Huda nude love set, the cover fx illuminating set and a few Sephora favourites sets that I didn’t even ask for but was so pleased with them as I love the Sephora sets, they’re such good value.
The lash stash mascara set is one of my favourites, and I always pick it up when it comes out. It’s such good value and the perfect way to try out lots of different mascaras. They normally have a bigger one then this but this has 5 different mascaras and also a voucher which you can take into Sephora and exchange for a full size mascara of your choice. Which I thought was fab! Not sure what one I’m going to get yet as I love tarte, benefit and too faced mascaras.
This give me some nude lip set is perfect and so me, as I love my nudes! Again this is great for trying lots of different brands. And is really good value as it comes with one full size lipstick! I love all the shades in this set and they’re perfect for putting in my makeup bag or handbag for on the go and touch ups etc.
The Huda beauty mini nude love collection set, I have tried the Huda liquid lipsticks before and I wasn’t a huge fan if I’m completely honest but I did really want these as I loved the shade range! And I thought I would give them a second chance. Again these are perfect for Travel and on the go.
The cover fx illuminating setting spray is my favourite, it’s so good and really does give you an illuminated and dewy finish but I really wanted to try the illuminating primer and the highlighters so these set was perfect. They also have a matte set as well. I’ve tried the highlighter and primer out already and I will definitely be picking up the full size!!
I got a few other litle bits and some money to get myself some dollars, so I will treat myself when I’m in america, definitely a trip to Sephora ha ha!!
If you would like to know where my cake was made it was by foxy cakes
They did such an amazing job and no doubt we will be using them again in the future.
