What I Got For My Birthday

Thanks so much for all of the birthday wishes on my previous post and for assuring me that I'm not crazy and/or having a quarter-life crisis. I thought I'd do a more fun post today and show you some of the things I got for my birthday this year. Lucky for me, Black Friday was about two weeks before, so I was able to pick out some things from the online sales. The first thing is this awesome American Apparel sweater from the men's section. I think the different patterns & colors are so cool and unlike anything I've seen before and it was half off so I got it for $40 instead of $80. Unfortunately it looks like it's sold out now, but I've linked the black & white version which is still on sale. I also got this Marc by Marc Jacobs sweatshirt from the men's section for half off, and I just loved the color and thought the writing was cool. It looks like that's sold out as well but you can see the t-shirt version here.

The last thing I got in the sales was Mac's Purple Times Nine Palette which was $10 off and I've been wanting to try a purple eyeshadow look so I thought this would be perfect. It's sort of a mini palette so you don't get the full sized shadows, but I can't really see myself using them up anytime soon if ever. All of the shades are stunning and it comes with both shimmery and matte shades. My friend also sent me some goodies from Sephora which was really nice. I got the Tony Moly Coconut Face Mask, which is a set of two sheet masks which are super hydrating and smell AMAZING, the Lavanila Healthy Body Butter which also smells amazing, and two of the Sephora Cream Lip Stains in the shades Pink Souffle and Blackberry Sorbet, which I have yet to try but am excited to.

I also went to Sephora and picked out the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Bow N Arrow, which I've wanted for a long time and her liquid lipsticks are probably my favorite lip product ever. The colors are just amazing and they stay on forever. I also got my birthday gift from them which is a set of two Nars Lip Pencils, which are really pretty but I don't really wear red or bright pinks so I might hand them off to a friend. You can see swatches of all of the lip colors after the jump. Oh and I also got some Coldstone Ice Cream Cupcakes which I clearly couldn't wait until after the photo to eat.

(: I saw those TonyMoly sheet masks and thought if you wanted to repurchase them, rather buy them on roseroseshop.com (I mean you have to pay shipping though, but if you bulk order you can get them and other masks for like $1 each) instead of $7.50 for two from Sephora which is a total rip off!
