Glossybox October – Roundup -#blogtober

Glossybox has given us a treat this month, whether you are a proud unicorn or a mighty mermaid, you will love this months box, which is unfortunately now sold out but I thought I should still do my monthly roundup of what was in it.

I got, as you can see, Unicorn! I couldn’t resist placing my unipusheen in the photos, whats better than a unicorn than a fat grey cat unicorn?

Mermaid v Unicorn Eye shadow Palette – when I saw this palette my heart skipped a little, I love the shades and I honestly cannot wait to play with them properly, at a pocket friendly price of £4 and can be found in your local Superdrug is this wonderful funky palette.

Kawaii Enterprise Brush Cleansing Egg – when I opened this up, I honestly thought it was just another beauty blender, purely because of how it was packaged, but it isnt that at all, but a brush cleaner! I have been seeing all over my facebook of homemade cleaners with a bit of plastic and some hot glue so getting this, is a highlight! it fits nicely on your fingers and is perfect for smaller brushes.

Bang Beauty Cream Color – How beautiful is this color? what is it? I hear you ask, it is in fact a multi use cream, you can use it anywhere and I have mainly worn it on my lips, and I love it, it reminds me of those little pots of lip balm I used to collect as a teen.

Lord and Berry Brow Pencil – I have probably said this before but my eyebrows are terrible, they are fair and just not there so i’m always on the hunt for new eyebrow pencils or tricks, and I love this, the one I received was slightly darker to what I was used to but I love how easily it was applied! I can see this being an every day use thing!

Sleek Makeup Creme to Powder Blush – The packaging of this is velvet, I think I was more impressed with the packaging than I was the product haha, I am a newbie with makeup so not only do i not own any blush (well I do now) but I also do not know how to use it, this shade is really pretty and its making me want to attempt to go from newbie to not so newb with my make up.

All these products are full size in this months box, usually its two full size and three samples but I love how Glossybox gave us such a fun treat for October and I cannot wait for the November box now!

Until next time

August Glossybox -Roundup.


This months Glossybox was a lovely little surprise! I am a bit of a useless order tracker so when things turn up at my front door I get all excited.. lets take a look at what I got in the August box!

Essence live.Laugh.Celebrate Palette – This is a cute little ‘make your own’ travel palette, perfect for putting in a bag and taking along on your jollies (holiday), The collection that I got was two eyeshadow shades, one blush and one higlighter, and I love the little rattly box to store them in! The palette itself retails at 1.50 and the powder 1.50 each, which is pretty good for the pockets!

Batiste 2 in 1 Dry Shampoo and Conditioner – This is my favorite of the dry hairspray brands! I have about five different bottles because one is never enough, but this is the first time I have seen or used the shampoo and conditioner version, and I love it! but being that Batiste is my favorite brand, what more could you expect

July GlossyBox – Roundup.

When my July Glossybox arrived at my door something inside it smelt incredible which, with anything that has body creams inside, is a good thing, all items are sealed up with a foil cap so whatever it is, is so fragrant its escaping the tubes and this months box has a theme of summer..

 

img_3099

Glossybox always comes looking so well packaged and full to the brim of fun items to try, Plus I really like the box which reminds me of a shoe box you get at posh shoe stores.. but enough about the box and onto the items..

img_3084

Up first I have this after sun skin care, seeing as we have had some sun lately in the UK (shocker I know) its Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Vitamin E, it seems gentle enough to put on my children’s skin after they come home from school and have been outside for most of the day.. it has that lovely smell that after sun has, or that I remember from my childhood of smelling it on my mum after she had done with her tanning outside.. I am definitely going to keep using it and may purchase it in future.

img_3083

Up next is what has caused that wonderful smell in the box, its a conditioner for the hair, and smells wonderful, I need a body cream of this as ugh, I don’t think I can just have it for my hair and I love it.

img_3102

Up next is a makeup brush, I am a big newbie when it comes to makeup or brushes so forgive my stupidity with this one, I am not sure what its for but I love the color of the brush hairs which are silky smooth too and after a little google, I learnt its good for applying highlighter..

img_3101

Banana Setting Powder, this is my firs try with setting powder and I have to admit that I love it, I usually just just translucent powder when I put my makeup on so its always fun to try something new, this also has a wonderful smell, not like a banana, which I am glad about as the smell of banana makes me gag a bit (I cant even watch any videos of people crushing banana’s in recipes hah) but I love this.

img_3100

I have seen these hairbands around a lot lately, they a designed to cause less damage to the hair when you tie it up, but also are great to use as a bracelet too, I love the smooth texture and they are brilliant in my hair, I do have a few that I found from Sainsburys so I have used them before and they are literally the only things I use in my hair now.

And that’s it, my July monthly box from Glossybox, I am excited for my next one!

Until next time

Glossybox Monthly – Roundup

So, I decided to take the plunge and try out a different monthly makeup subscription box, as you are probably are aware I’ve been subscribed to Birchbox since the start of January but while browsing Facebook I saw Glossybox had a coupon code to try their box for the first month so.. how could I say no?

img_2704

and as you can see, I got a lovely selection of goodies for this month! the little booklet is a few chapters from the upcoming book Wilde Like Me by Louise Pentland which is due to be released on June 29th so you still have time to preorder a copy, the few chapters are really interesting so I may go and pick that up when I manage to get into town! go check it out.

img_2705
First up in the box we have dry hairspray by Batiste, I live for dry hairspray and I am forever running low of the stuff (any mother of more than one will probably understand hah) but this one is for heat and shine to protect your hair from the heat and styling which is fantastic! I don’t often use my straighteners but now when I do I can relax that my hair will have some form of heat protection. best dry hairspray ever!

img_2706

Up next we have Eness exotic Africa argan oil hand cream, and from experience with from when I was working in a newsagents, one can never have to many hand creams! this hand cream smells absolutely divine, it reminds me of children’s sun cream and has made my hands wonderfully soft.. plus it is made by a cruelty free company which is a plus!

img_2707

Up next is a contour pencil, I see all over Instagram people using tape and spoons and whatever they can get their hands on to contour their face to make it look slimmer, which literally only works if you are looking at someone dead on, I personally don’t understand contouring and frankly am to terrified of doing it myself, if they turn out how my eyebrows look half the time then i doubt ill be able to ‘blend’ the brown in correctly and look like I’ve let my baby smudge chocolate on my face haha! so consider  me not a fan of contouring

img_2708

Now time for some illuminator from Manna ,  this is the first time Ive actually used an illuminator and I actually like it, it adds a subtle pink tint to my regular foundation and creates a nice shimmer look on bare skin, the only issue is this is step 3 and I am unsure about the other steps but I have defiantly added it to my regular makeup.

img_2709

Up next I have some all in one primer by Thisworks, I had a tiny bottle of primer a while ago and found my face was much better after using it before applying my makeup, so I am super happy to have another bottle to use, and a much better one too, Primers from what I am aware (makeup newbie) are used to prime the face before makeup.. it smells lovely and has quickly gone into my makeup bag!

img_2710

and lastly we have a beautiful browny red lip crayon, I don’t usually wear lipsticks much but when I do I tend to lean towards the darker shades than lighter so this is right up my street, I adore the color on and have used it a few times since I received my box the other day.

All in all this was a great box, I am glad I saw the promotional codes and picked it up and I think I will definitely keep up this subscription month to month to add to this makeup newbies now overflowing bag!
