Glossybox: October 2017 – Unicorns & Mermaids

I can’t even begin to explain how EXCITED I have been for this months Glossybox. I’ve literally had butterflies in my stomach since September and I’ve been checking my emails religiously for a dispatch email from Glossybox. I don’t even know why I have been extra excited this month. Ha. Probably down to the fact that us glossies will receive a gorgeous, pretty, fab, lovely, adorable MERMAID or UNICORN themed box this October. C’mon girls… who doesn’t love mermaids and unicorns! Not only that, this month we will all receive five FULL SIZE make-up products with a total value of £51.48 which is definitely something to be happy about considering we have only paid £13.25 for the subscription.

Mr. Postman delivered my box today and I have been sent the gorgeous pink & blue UNICORN box. I’ll admit I was kind of wishing for the MERMAID box as I’m totally a mermaid at heart but I was still over the moon with my gorgeous unicorn box design and it is sitting on my dressing table right now looking FAB.

Sleek Make-Up – Crème To Powder Blush – RRP £5.99

This cream-to-powder blush is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It claims to give a natural, dewy finish and is applied to the cheeks and blended to create a powder finish. Each box will contain one of six shades. unfortunately I got the shade CRIMSON which is so bright its unreal. I would have preferred a more subtle, lighter shade as I think the crimson shade will look ridiculous against my pale skin, I’m guessing I’ll look like a clown. I’ll give it a go nonetheless and I’ll let you guys know what I thought of it. I’m quite new to Sleek Make-Up and I only own one of their products which is the Black Eyebrow Powder – which I’m not a big fan of so maybe this blush will be the decider for me as to whether or not I like Sleek products and if I will buy them again.

Kawaii Enterprise – Brush Cleansing Egg – RRP £7.99

So this Brush Cleaning Egg from Kawaii Enterprise is a bright pink silicone make-up brush cleaner which is easy to use and helps to keep your brushes in great shape and free from bacteria. You just pop your two fingers inside the egg, wet your brush and add a bit of liquid soap or facial cleanser. You then swirl your brushes against the nodules and bumps and run the bristles of your brush down the deeper grooves to realign the brush hairs without damaging them. I think this is a great little pick for this months box as everybody needs clean brushes – but I already own a set of brush cleansing eggs which I’ve reviewed here, so there is no point in having another really. I’m sure my sister will love the Brush Cleansing Egg so I’ll give it to her or maybe I will add it to a bundle of other beauty products and run a GIVEAWAY for you lot. What do ya think?

Lord & Berry – Magic Brow Perfect Eyebrow Pencil – RRP £14

The Magic Brow Perfect Brow Pencil is a highly pigmented pencil and it has a marbelised tip which is swirled with two complimentary shades so it looks natural and produces a gorgeous colour variation found in natural brows. I got the brunette shade as I told Glossybox I had black hair in my beauty profile so I’m guessing you will get a shade based on your beauty profile… so make sure if you ever change your hair colour to update your details on the website. I really like Lord & Berry products and I own quite a few of their products already so I’m really happy with this high end product being in this months box. I can’t wait to give it a try and I hope I like it as I’m struggling with my brows at the minute, haha. The pencil retails at £14 so it is worth more than the subscription itself.

Bang Beauty – Cream Color – RRP £19.50

The Crème Color from Bang Beauty is a multi-purpose cream which can be used on the lips, cheeks and eyes. It comes in a small tub and has a super shiny mirrored lid which looks beautiful, it is also vegan and cruelty-free so thumbs up. I have never heard of Bang Beauty before so I cant wait to give this product a go as I love discovering new brands – I suppose that’s the best part about subscribing to a beauty box. The Crème Colour is priced at £19.50 so the value of thus product alone outweighs the £10 subscription cost.

Make-Up Revolution – Mermaids vs Unicorns Eyeshadow Palette – RRP £4

I’m not really into my eyeshadow palettes because I’m absolutely awful at eye makeup and prefer to get my eyes done by a MUA – but, these mermaid and unicorn colours are so pretty, dreamy and amazing that I think it’s about time I taught myself how to apply eyeshadow properly. YouTube to the rescue! The Mermaids vs Unicorns Palette is a budget-friendly palette at just £4 and there is a double ended eyeshadow brush included too. I think I will try some mermaid and unicorn inspired makeup tonight and if it doesn’t look poo, I’ll post the results on my Instagram page.

Also included in this months box was a gorgeous half UNICORN sticker which I have put on the back of my phone.

Oh and before I forget to mention – Glossybox have also just launched their MERMAID & UNICORN sweatshirts which are available to buy for £29.99. They are gorgeous so I might have to get myself one!


SPOILER ALERT FOR NOVEMBER!

In next months box we will all receive the Contour Powder Brush from Beauty UK – perfect for contouring, highlighting and blending! I’m excited!

Glossybox: September 2017

It’s been ages since a Glossybox turned up at my door. Last week I signed back up to Glossybox (and Birchbox) and it arrived this morning. In my box was three full size items which I’m pretty pleased about. I haven’t tried any of the products out properly yet as I’m super busy right now but I will sit down later tonight and try each one.

Pixi By Petra – Brow Tamer (£12)
(FULL SIZE)

This is the easy to use, long-lasting brow gel which defines brows and also contains aloe vera and panthenol to soothe the skin and give a natural look. It’s paraben and fragrance free and not tested on animals. I really don’t know how to feel about this one. I’m excited that this is my first product from this brand but I’m disappointed that it’s just a brow gel – which I don’t use. My eyebrows are super fine and blonde (which I tint) and they really don’t need taming, if anything they need a bit of ooomph as without my eyebrow pencils and powders it seriously looks like I’m browless, ha. I’ll give it a try anyway and if I like it I’ll continue to use.

Monu Skincare – Firming Fiji Facial Oil (£26)

I love my face oils so I’m eager to try this Firming Fiji Facial Oil from Monu Skincare. Yet another brand I haven’t bought from. This oil contains plant oils and essential oils to calm, firm and brighten dull skin. I have the travel size here but the full size product is £26 to buy. Can’t wait to try this out, lets hope it knocks a few years off me, hey!

21687558_1779239372368744_1984170333418644639_n

Rodial – Suede Lips (£22)
(FULL SIZE)

I didn’t even know this product was in the box until I read the card which listed all the items in my box, so it was a nice surprise when I found it hiding at the bottom of the box hours later underneath all the shredded paper. So this is a full size product from Rodial, a skincare and make-up brand. I’ve never used any of thier products either but I’m very happy that this was in this months box and I will defo be using it. I have the shade Big Apple from their Suede Lips collection, all worth £22 and enriched with vitamin E to hydrate and moisturise the lips. I haven’t tried this yet but I will post a review on it in the next couple of days. Stay tuned…

21686427_1779239405702074_1469637713785733566_n

Cetaphil – Mini Skincare Trio

This Mini Skincare Trio from Cetaphil is my favourite product in this months box, I love my skincare products and Cetaphil is a brand I’ve been wanting to try for ages. Cetaphil products are recommended by dermatologists world-wide for dry, sensitive skin and for skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema too. Cetaphil is used by models, MUA’s and beauty bloggers everywhere, it’s about time I got to try some of their products. I have super sensitive skin and psoriasis so I can’t wait to try these out. The full size Gentle Skin Cleanser is £14.99, the Moisturising Facial Cream is £8.99 for the full size and the Moisturising Lotion for the body is £14.99 for the full size.

STYLondon – Siligel Blender (£5.99)

I have used products from STYLondon in the past and I’m not the biggest fan of their products but the Siligel Blender has caught my eye so I will definitely give this a try later. Apparently, the Siligel Blender is more hygienic than other blenders and requires you to use less foundation as it doesn’t absorb as much as make-up sponges. Hopefully I’ll like it and it won’t end up in the products I hate bin! I”ll let you guys know…

21761582_1779239285702086_4117529496333823238_n

Kinder Bueno

21687833_1779239159035432_8405206706959145452_n

The Kinder Bueno comes in foil packaging and inside is a not one but TWO delicious milk chocolate wafer bars filled with a milky hazelnut filling….. Just kidding. Trying to be funny. Failed. Ha. I love that Glossybox have given us a treat this month and I’m eating it now with a nice cuppa tea. Nom Nom…

Spoiler Alert:
I am sooooo excited for next months box as there are two gorgeous box designs being sent out. All Glossyboxers will receive a MERMAID box or a UNICORN box. I think I’m a more of a mermaid girl myself so I’m hoping I get the mermaid box but I’ll be happy with either!
Which one are you?

 

GLOSSYBOX ❤ | APRIL 2016 | SPRING PREENING 👸

 

Hey Girls! 😘

How ya doing? I thought I would share the contents of my April GLOSSYBOX with you all. I’ve been a GLOSSY since January 2016 and I think it’s about time I filled you in on the little goodies I’ve been receiving each month! I chose a monthly subscription when I signed up three months ago and I’ve been receiving my boxes on the 10th of each month.


 

12986979_1557653284527355_4248625016638418059_n


Here’s what was in my April 2016 box.

12998551_1557653291194021_7284479074920310873_n

I received four full-sized products and one good-sized sample.

Make Me Beautiful Lip Chubby From NEXT – (FULL SIZED PRODUCT)

12439358_1557653731193977_161839964873105000_n

I’m really loving this little beautiful lip colour. It is a gorgeous hot pink ‘chubby’ lip crayon that is super creamy and rich and glides on effortlessly giving a glossy finish. The Lip Chubby is enriched with a blend of natural plant waxes and oils to moisturise the lips. This ‘Make Me Beautiful Lip Chubby’ is from NEXT and is £8 to buy, there are eight other shades to choose from too. The Lip Chubby’s from NEXT are very similar to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks which retail at around £17. This will definitely be a spring/summer favourite for me! I might even purchase some other shades. Click here to buy.


Leighton Denny Expert Nails Miracle Mist – (FULL SIZED PRODUCT)

12974448_1557653734527310_8124912149921086062_n

Leighton Denny’s Miracle Mist is a convenient aerosol spray bottle that quickly speeds up polish drying time. A spray that dries wet nail polish!? I’ll have me some of that. 👌 No more waiting for nails to dry or reapplying due to smudging! The ‘Miracle Mist’ conditions cuticles as well. 😍 It sounds too good to be true doesn’t it. I’ll admit I probably wouldn’t buy this in store but nonetheless, I can’t wait to try it out! 💅

The Miracle Mist retails at £11 for 75 ml bottle. You can get some here.


Temporary White Henna Tattoos From STYLondon – (FULL SIZED PRODUCT)

13012601_1557654494527234_3920396729351360827_n

The tattoo’s I received are called ‘Casablanca’. They are white temporary henna tattoo’s in different designs and have bits of gold speckles here and there. They are so pretty! 😍😍😍 ver…but I’ll never use them! These would look fabulous at music festivals so if you’re a festival goer… snap some up! The tattoo’s are easy to apply and can be easily removed with olive oil or baby oil. They are so gorge and quirky and they have a stunning design but sadly they are not my kind of thing!

They retail at £6 from STYLondon and there are lots of other temporary henna designs to choose from. Take a look!


Brow Lift Perfecting Liner From Studio 10 – (FULL SIZED PRODUCT)

12991029_1557654491193901_4666202614571783089_n

This is my favourite product from April’s Box! The Brow Lift Perfecting Liner from Studio 10 is a double-ended eyebrow pencil that works equally well on all hair shades and skin tones. The smudge-proof formula stays put – so there’s no need to worry about eyebrow pencil all over your forehead and eyelids as the day goes by. The actual colour of the brow liner is kinda taupe-greyish-brownishy and it is possible to build your desired shade intensity depending on your preference. The flesh-toned highlighter is great for brightening the brow bone and enhancing your brow shape. It is enriched with vitamin E too.

The Brow Lift Perfecting Liner from Studio 10 is £22 to buy. (What’s great is for every Brow Lift Perfecting Liner sold – Studio 10 will donate one to the cancer charity ‘Look Good Feel Better’ in a bid to help women feel confident about their appearance again.)

Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil From The Body Shop – (SAMPLE)

12998751_1557653737860643_8257940225410669764_n

 I was very happy to have a Body Shop product in my box this month. This little facial oil sample from The Body Shop’s ‘Oils Of Life’ collection is enriched with Black Cumin seed oil from Egypt, Camellia seed oil from China and Rosehip seed oil from Chile. The facial oil is a lightweight formula, quickly absorbed and leaves a non-sticky finish. It is suitable for daily use to revitalise the skin, replenish moisture and revive radiance giving you a beautiful complexion. It also claims to visibly reduce any signs of ageing. What I love about this facial oil is that it’s made with 99% oils of natural origin. It is £28 for a full-sized 30 ml bottle. There is also other skin care products in The Body Shop’s ‘Oils Of Life’ range. Click here to check them out. The Body Shop are giving customers £10 off all orders that are over £25 so get your little arses over there and take advantage!  😉


Box Value in April’s 2016 GLOSSYBOX:

£48 (not including The Body Shops sample of Revitalising Facial Oil)

Not bad for £10 eh! 😊


I’ll be reviewing each one properly over the next few days so keep those pretty eyes peeled for my reviews and pics if any have caught your eye! 😘

The tweezer come with a small storage case to put the tweezers in when not using as well which will help to keep them in tip-top condition. The case is the perfect size for your make-up bag or your handbag and is a life saver If you’re clumsy  like me and always misplacing or losing your tweezers.

They’re very easy to use and have a sleek and precise tip – this means they grip those unwanted hairs well and remove them with one easy pull. They are made from stainless steel and have a slanted edge to really grip and remove the most stubborn of hairs.
