It’s that time again.. Time to look at what I’ve received in my Glossy Box this fine November month!

Vichy Trio (Idéalia and Idéalia Life Serum)
Having received a sample of this before, I knew what to expect from this cream! The scent is lovely but really overpowering and definitely not for those of us with sensitive skin! However, I do like the serum which is of course, thinner in consistency and slightly easier to wear.. I didn’t notice any differences in my skin from using this though.

Scholl Dry Skin Exfoliator
This seems really good and I was so happy it came in a full size! It’s quite gritty but isn’t sharp and leaves skin feeling soft! I think this would be great on any dry skin areas such as elbows or knees too!

Elegant Touch Rapid Dry For Nails
I have never tried anything like this before so I’m excited to give it a go. The idea is that you spray this on tower nails and it makes your nails dry in 60 seconds! And again.. Full size!

Yves Rocher Elegant Touch Cacao Orange and Chocolate Hand Cream
Ok, let’s not go any further without mentioning the fact that this smells like Terry’s chocolate orange flavour! I tried this as soon as I could and I wanted to eat my own hands after trying it! It smelt truly incredible! It’s not greasy feeling and absorbs almost immediately! This full size went straight in my handbag!

Emite Micronized Eyeshadow in Dams
The last full size product and it’s the strangest eyeshadow ever! This cruelty and bad-chemical free eyeshadow is like suede to the touch! It’s a matte black colour with no fallout! The pigmentation isn’t great, but the eyeshadow blends beautifully and creates a really nice hazey looking smokey eye!

July Miss Glossy Box!


20130722-014425.jpg

So I recently received the Miss Glossy Box for the summer months! For those of you who don’t know, Miss Glossy Box is the second subscription box service that Glossy Box have made which is targeted to a younger audience consisting of drug store and more affordable brands!

VO5 Plump It Up Back Comb Spray £3.69
This is a spray designed for those of us who love a good back comb but hate the crispy and stiff feeling that hairspray gives! It smells good and lasts a long time and really does leave a more natural movement to your hair even when you have it back combed!

Kiss Nail Wraps in Jewelled Stripes £5.99
I like a good nail wrap every now and again! Although I find some of the patterns very garish (which some would claim this one is too), I think this design is perfect for the target audience of the box! Nail wraps are quick to put on, require no glue and last really long too!

Miss Patisserie Bath Fizzy in Starlight £2
When I first got the box, I could smell something incredible coming from the bag! I loved the idea of the bath fizzes in the box because its something I’ve never received in the original Glossy Box! They smell divine and have fun stars in them which float around in your bath!

GlossyBox false lashes
These eyelashes are not able to be bought separately however, they are of fairly good quality! Perhaps a bit too full on for the looks that I like to go for, but I like the idea of them! They come with glue too!

Beyonce Midnight Heat £29.50
This perfume is a really pungent scent! I wouldn’t say it’s very evening at all! Rather, a musky smell which is bordering on smelling like ‘Grandma trying to be hip’. It’s a shame because I love the original Beyonce Heat which I have a bottle of!

All in all, I feel as though this months Miss Glossy Box wasn’t really marketed that well! I think the perfume, lashes and back comb spray were better suited to the original Glossy box, however, there were a lot of full sized products in the box and for the price of the subscription, we all got our money’s worth! I’m just not sure if some of the products were suited well for myself!

April Beauty Favourites!


20130429-214614.jpg

I’ve been blogging everyday during the month of April and I’ve mentioned some of the beauty essentials that I’ve been loving but here’s a post collectively showing you all the products!

The biggest change for me has been foundation! I’ve had Nars Sheer Glow for ages but recently I’ve been using it mixed with moisturiser and by itself (when I want more coverage). I love the colour, how it feels and how it looks!

** Nars Sheer Glow- Light 4 Deauville

Whenever I use foundation, I have to contour my face and this product has saved my life! I love using it to contour my cheekbones, jawline, temples as well as my nose and even crease! This colour is perfect for me during summer!

** Sleek Face Contour Kit- Medium

When I’m not using foundation I’ve been using my Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder! This is a full coverage foundation but during these warmer months, wearing a powder helps set the face! This colour is perfect and it helps make your skin look flawless!

** Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder- Real Sands

I recently done a blog post in this MUA eyeshadow palette saying how similar it was to the Urban Decay Naked Palette! This is such good value for money and I’ve been loving a neutral eye for the days when I don’t want to wear much on my eyes but still want to look made up!

** MUA- Undressed

Instead of using winged eyeliner, I’ve been using my KIKO Super Colour Eyeliner on my bottom lash line! I love how fine the felt too applicator is and the colours are so vivid! They look fantastic as a pop of colour to the face!

** KIKO Super Colour Eye Liners

MAC Pink Swoon was the first ever blush I bought from MAC! And I’ve loved it since I ever got it! It’s a lovely sheer pink colour that is buildable.. Although it doesn’t last all day! I love the look it gives your skin and I think it would suit any skin colouring!

** MAC- Pink Swoon

I’ve never been one for highlighters but I’m going eyebrow crazy lately! A well kept eye brow really does make a well kept face! I love the cream to powder formula and the highlighting end is a perfect colour for highlighting your eyebrow arch, inner corner and even cheekbones!

** KIKO- Perfect Eyes Highlighting Duo

I’ve loved blogging everyday during April and I’d like to thank everyone who’s kept up! I’ll be back soon with more!
