Okay, so it was my birthday at the very end of January and I may of went a bit over board online with Sephora and spent so much I was almost sick, (£50 in taxes and shipping isn't good for anyone.) Hey ho you only get a birthday once a year and have that much money to spend, so I went with treat yo self. I've had the products for a while now and I've tried them all, so expect a whole load of reviews coming your way soon.

I spent a lot solely on Kat Von D, I've never tried anything from her and trust me I could of spent so much more, but you know, life.
Of course, the first thing I wanted was the much talked about Shade and Light Contour Palette, I've been using this everyday since I got it, the two lightest shades are working perfectly on my super pale skin. I don't find them the nicest to blend or apply evenly unfortunately. It's pretty similar to my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette, but the hype still made me buy this.
I also picked up the Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette, we all know I love a good eyeshadow palette and this looked like I'd get a load of use out of it. Likewise, I've been using  it everyday since I got it and I've managed to use all of the shades, which is really rare for me, I'll usually stick to the same four shades and not touch the rest. Over all, the pigmentation is good and the texture of the shadows are chalky, but soft and easy to blend or build up.
I ran out of my Urban Decay Setting Spray a while ago, so I picked up the Kat Von D Lock It Spray. So far, I'm liking this better than the Urban Decay option, especially the peculiar scent and gorgeous packaging.
Last but not least from Kat Von D I got the Lock It Featherweight Primer, we all know I certainly didn't need another primer but, the packaging got me, again. I've found this to be  very similar to the Too Faced Hangover X primer.

I feel blessed that I finally own THAT gorgeous highlighter from Laura Mercier that I've seen plastered over Instagram for so long. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you ain't been in the beauty game long enough. Forget the look of Champagne Pop and look at this. It's true highlighter porn, you can't tell me you don't want that.
Also along the highlighter lines I couldn't not try one of the new Hourglass Strobing Powders. After googling swatches for an hour, I went for the shade Incandescent. This gives a gorgeous, subtle glow to the skin, it's definitley more of a day time highlight to make your skin look healthy and youthful.

I picked up two of Tarte's new lip products, the Tarteist Lip Paint and the matching lip liner. I went for the really dark, mauvey nude shade named TBT. (How cute is that stripey packaging?)
The stand out has been the staying power of the lip liner, honestly there's no stopping this thing!

I re-purchased the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, this is the only product I've ever re-purchased, (twice.) I do wear fake eyelashes on a daily basis but I still want/need a great mascara, nothing compares to the power of Better Than Sex, believe the hype.
Also along the lines of the eye area, I picked up the new Anastasia Brow Definer, purely to compare it to Brow Wiz, (comparison post coming soon.)  So far, I'm not a fan, and Brow Wiz is definitley my baby.

Let me know if you've picked up any of these recently and what you think. I hope I've done you some serious enabling. As I said, reviews are to come of desperate products.
