This months Glossy Box has arrived and the theme is High Flyers! All products are under 100ml so perfect for flying and they’re all things to give yourself a super quick pep when you’re away and don’t have time for age long beauty treatments!

Océane Make up Remover Pen

This is basically what every woman thinks about wanting but it hasn’t been invented until NOW! This is a makeup remover pen which basically has liquid inside the pen and you can use the nib to remove makeup precisely! It comes with 3 extra nibs and it really helped remove those mistakes that happen with eyeshadows, liners and lipsticks!

Tresemme 60 second treatment shot
I haven’t yet tried this because its not something which appealed to me straight away if I’m honest! I don’t usually use stuff like this is in my hair, simply because I don’t feel I need it! However, this is supposed to make your hair feel silky smooth after using and because it’s 60 second, it’s quick!

Emite Makeup Eye lash Curler
I was so surprised to see an eyelash curler in my Glossy Box this month! It even comes with three changeable rubber pads! It feels really sturdy because the mechanism is stiff and the actual curler area is super long so will grab every eye lash and it gives lashes a really right curl!

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 eyeliner & shadow
When I saw this, I was so happy! Every Jelly Pong Pong item I receive is always really nice! I love this one too! I like the fact that you can use this as an eye shadow and eye liner! This really does create a smooth and even line and when used as an eye shadow, it’s blend able. However, it’s not that easy to smudge and I found that it creased after some time! I think with a good primer and a shadow on the top, it’ll last!

Urban Veda Purifying Day Cream
I’ve saved the best until last! I absolutely love this day cream! It has a matte finish, feels cold after applying and is so lightweight! Also, it’s so inexpensive that I’m definitely going to purchase it!

I really liked this month’s Glossy Box! There were 4 full sized products in here and more importantly a product which I am so in love with that I’ve recommended it to two other people already and they’ll be purchasing it too! All the products were really nice to use and fit in the ‘High Flyers’ theme really well!

GlossyBox is £10 a month (£2.95 p&p)

You guys may have noticed from my manicure tutorial that I like nail art! Something I love more than that is designing my nails after! At the moment, I’m loving soft colours and I’m into Aztec print so anything which has sharp bold lines is a YES!

Here’s some nail designs that I love doing!

If you’re not too good at doing the hand you write with, do that one first! That way you won’t struggle with doing the opposite hand with wet nails! It’s much easier! Alternatively.. Do it really messy and get your mum to clear it with a cue tip..

I’ve used y mum to show you guys that age is but a number and nail art designs are there for anyone who wants to try them! Don’t be afraid to express yourself through your nails! But always look after your hands if you’re not keen on a bald design!

Thanks for helping me mum!

I used a nail art pen for the French tip on the red tip however, prefer using eye liner! I just find eye liner so much more easier to use! It’s handy and available anywhere an I think most people have liquid eye liner anyway! Just remember to use a base coat when using eye liner otherwise it washes away!

The trick to applying perfect nail polish is use as less strokes as possible! Load up your brush evenly and one stride in the middle with two on either side following, follow up with a second coat to even out the nail colour.

False nails are an option too! I recently tried ImPress nails and I was.. Impressed ;) The only thing is that they feel strange and they didn’t last me a week! They taught me though that I use y nails for a lot of things, hence why my nails are tittle and break easily.

Also, I have a vast collection of nail polishes HOWEVER, you don’t need thousands of nail polishes! These are some staple colours which I feel everyone should have!
