Makeup: Birthday Presents

My lovely friend Becca always gets me such beautiful gifts, and this year's birthday present is no exception. It's not my birthday until Tuesday, but we always exchange gifts when we're celebrating together, and this year, my party was a full seven days before the big day. I unwrapped the usual array of silly gifts that had us giggling all night (my favourite was a book called 'Brocabulary' - a ridiculous collection of Hills-esque boy-speak) and then unveiled this little beauty: presenting Clinique's Colour Surge Eye Shadow Quad in Spicy!

Now, I know the only neutrals that are getting much coverage at the moment are those in the Naked palette, but this pretty collection of pinks are perfect for my pale skin. I wore a really simple eye look today using the lighter shades and loved the 'understated but polished' look it gave. I stripped my make up off as soon as I got in but I'll be sure to photograph this on tomorrow!

The consistency is lovely and fine, and the colour pay-off is fantastic. The colours look really expensive and so, so pretty. Clinique isn't always my first port of call for eye make up so it's lovely to receive this as a gift and be opened up to a whole new range: thanks Bec!
