November Glossy Box 2014!

Glossy Box Nov 2014 Glossy Box 2014 Nov

Here it is! My Glossy Box, I am so happy I finally got round to writing this, I have been feeling majorly sorry for myself as I was ill, but anyway enough of the sob story!

I was excited to receive my second ever Glossy Box and I was not disappointed either! I got a card explaining what was in it, last time I didn’t get one and I think I was meant to but that’s okay, I am a very forgiving person hehe!

So, the first product on the list, Lollipop’s Make Up Eye Pencil, in black.

Glossy Box 2014 (3)

I love this eye pencil, its the one where you twist the bottom part and it makes the pencil part come out, it is great for the lower lid but I also needed to do my make up really fast and I normally apply liquid liner to the upper lid and I actually used this which worked really well as I smudged it and it made for a really good smokey eye effect! Impressed and I definitely would buy this!

Next, Burt’s Bees Lip Shine, in pale pink.

Glossy Box 2014 (10)

This lip shine is gorgeous, it glides on so well (albeit with a few little grainy bits in, which can be forgiven because it it 100% natural apricot wax), it works really well over the top of red lipstick actually, I do like it on it’s own though for the day look!

H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment, oil free moisture gel to hydrate skin and minimise the appearance of fine lines.

Don’t like this, it just did not feel right on my skin! You put it on over a damp face and I did that, it smells horrible, I don’t have any wrinkles yet and so can’t say if it minimises wrinkles, definitely not my favourite! (Luckily it was a super small tube!)

MONU Skincare Refining Capri Facial Oil, to balance oily skin and decongest pores to help maintain spot prone skin.

Glossy Box 2014 (6)

OMG! I am literally in love with this, the smell is zesty natural citrus oil, camphor and grape seed oil, it is absolutely delicious. I have been using this for over a week morning and night after cleansing and I love it! My skin has cleared up, my make up goes on much more smoothly (foundation!) and my pores do look a lot smaller too which lets face it, is always a great thing! Very impressed with this and would fork out the £26 for 100ml from the MONU online shop!

Girls!!! This is saving the best till last, Umberto Giannini Frizzi Miracle Worker, it’s amazing, seriously! I think this hair stuff is heaven in a gel, I put about 7- 8 squirts (hehe!) onto the palm of my hand and then rub my hands gently together and start at the roots and down to my tips on towel dried hair, I then spray on my John Frieda 3 day straight and a small spritz of my Lee Stafford Poker Straight heat protecting mist, then I blow dry and voila! My hair is soft and feels absolutely great, smells delicious and then I put about 3 squirts more and after straightening my hair I just gently stroke it through my hair, I then put the blow dryer on cold and on a low speed and then set my hair! I love this and WILL be buying more, at £8 for 125ml, BARGAIN!

So ladies, there we have it my wonderful November Glossy Box 2014, I really do enjoy the variety of things on offer from this company and the fact it opens my eyes to products that would never normally even be on my radar!

My first ever Glossy Box!

Yay, my October Glossy Box arrived!

This is super super exciting, like Christmas, Easter and my Birthday rolled into one, I am looking forward to giving you an honest review on everything I received in my first EVER Glossy Box!

Here is October 2014’s Glossy Box-

The actual box is just too cute, pop art style, definitely a keeper and I was impressed with how beautiful the inside presentation of the box was!

So first up is the Nuxe 24hr Soothing and rehydrating fresh mask, I gave this a go but with my combination skin I did not like the oily feel that I had afterwards so I ended up washing it off but having said that and leaving it on my face for the recommended time of 10 minutes, my face did feel really soft. 🙂

être belle Lip Lift peel, I tried this the minute I opened it, it is supposed to provide gentle exfoliation for your lips to make them feel really soft it has tiny grains inside it and felt like a cream in texture, the smell was lovely. I definitely had softer lips and this was the first time I had tried any lip exfoliator and I was pleasantly pleased, this has made me want to try the Lush lip sugar even more!

Me Me Me, elegant eyes. I am yet to try this trio eye shadow, purple, grey and black. I do like the look of it though and will let you know when I have used it by doing a review of it’s own soon!

Argan Oil of Morocco, This is a moisture rich hair treatment oil and it is AMAZING, please if you have not used this before then use it, I put it on my hair whilst it had just been towel dried and then proceeded to blow dry as normal, I then straightened my hair and applied a small amount in the palm of my hand, rubbed my hands together and smoothed my hair down. It literally felt amazing, the most soft that it has ever felt in fact and no frizz (as a mixed race girlie with naturally curly hair, this is like the best feeling in the world!) I am in total shock and will definitely be researching further into this brand and look into investing in some of the other products that they do! Again, when I get them I will definitely tell you about my experience with them. 😉

Rimmel london BB Cream, sample size in the colour light, this personally was disastrous for me, firstly it was way too light for my skin tone and secondly it just does not cover any of my darker pigmentations on my face. I don’t like it for me but for someone who has great skin and hardly any darker marks it would work really well as the consistency is for the barely there look. Not for the combination skin, in my own opinion!

So Susan Flutter Mascara, One word, yuk! Let me explain, I opened it and the fluid basically exploded out the top, so sat on my chair in front of my dressing table, hands covered in mascara I battled on and applied it to my eyelashes which I had curled using an eyelash curler, I applied one coat and let it dry, another and then another…nothing. It is for people who have naturally long eye lashes, so ok I was a bit harsh saying yuk but that is just because I was gutted it did nothing for my eyelashes… 😦

So there you have it lovely people, that is my review, I honestly did love it and I felt so happy on the day I got it and I really am looking forward to opening November’s one….bring it on!

W7 Candy Blush amazing!

W7 Candy Blush Sweet Cheeks Blusher-Orion

Wow, what an intense colour for a blusher, I made the mistake of not blowing my brush before applying and yes again I will say wow, definitely wont be using a lot of it, will be using it in a more subtle way.

It is a cute little compact size and it also has a mirror too, what is not to like! Upon application it goes on really well and does not cake upon re- application through the day. They come in 4 different shades and I will quite happily make my way through them!

LA Colors and W7 (7)

It is funny because I genuinely am a bit of a label girl, but having tried W7’s eye shadows I think this brand has so much more on offer than I originally thought! I am now on a bit of a trip and am finding out about lots of different brands that I had not even heard of. Great blusher, bargain price too!

Check it out ladies! 🙂

Crystal nails!

I did these today and I thought I would share the picture with you, I got a few little gemstone crystals and I stuck them on by pressing them gently into the wet nail varnish and then I put clear nail varnish over the top and wiped them gently! Looked really pretty and would be lovely for a night out!

Hope you like and give them a try! 🙂
