May (Birthday) Haul!!

 In my mind, it was so much more! Bigger. Larger. Humungous! Because that's the size of the hole it burned my pocket!
This is a collective haul of the stuff I got in May right from the start of the month so you have seen a lot of these products featured here already!
A couple are presents I got for my birthday. Most are bought by me and my family for me!

But I did miss a couple of things here like a MAC Lipstick that was a present from a friend and lies in that friend's bag still. The sleek package that din't arrive. The sleek package that I had planned but never got because my "trial pack" din't arrive. The Pond's BB cream.. etc.
And this is just the makeup. The amount of clothes I got this month makes me want to build myself a new wardrobe and I did leave out the crazy expensive skincare. This is just the fun, colourful stuff!

Was it a lipstick month or what?!

Tell me what you'd like to see reviewd first, okay?

PS: Anybody notice how all my lipsticks are red & pink? I feel I need more coral now!
