March GlossyBox

GLOSSYBOX

Hey lovelies,
I recently re-subscribed to glossy box as I was missing the famous pink box and thought id review this March box :)

GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box that features five beauty products for £10 .  There are different options whether you wanting a one off box, 3 month, 12 month subscription, making it suitable for you..
The boxes include brands such as Huda cosmetics, Maybelline, Illamasqua, sleek etc.



In my box:
    💛Bellapierre lip crème - rrp £20
Love the formula but would of preffared the nude tones as I don't really wear bright lip colours, although its a great colour for the summer.

💛Bybi lip plumper - rrp £9.00
A good plumper that doesn't hurt your lips, plumps but not too much definition to the lips.

     💛Kaleido highlighter - rrp £13.00
Love this highlighter and realised if you pop it on your eyes under your shimmer eyeshadow it makes the shimmer/colour pop more, so it can be used more than a highlighter.

💛Essence matt setting spray - rrp £3.00
I don't normally use setting sprays, but this one seems to work, although I don't always like to have a matte finish so would rather try out the glowy spray.

💛TheBodyShop wild argan oil body butter - £6.00
Love the bodyshops body butters, you get a lot of product in the tub too.


                                       /\ Swatches of  Kaleido highlighter & Bellapierre
 
 I was super excited knowing that this month I was going to receive a bodyshop body butter,
 I was hoping to receive the Coconut butter as its my all time favourite, but I was still excited to try out the Wild argan oil butter as I had never tried it, this makes your skin feel super soft and making your skin looking refreshed/glowy.
Overall  I have really liked this months GlossyBox and cannot wait for Aprils Box to come out.

Work outfit


Hello Lovelies so I decided to do a work outfit look:
 💜90s top - Newlook
💜Snake skirt - Lotd
  💜Trainers - Newlook

I never really had the confidence to try out snake print.. but I really seem to be loving it & I had quiet a few compliments too, I teemed the skirt with this awesome made in the 90s tee which I obviously had to buy as I was born in the 90s, to be comfortable at work I wore these canvas trainers from newlook which I seem to wear pretty much everyday as they're comfy, affordable and look good with any outfit.💛

Remington 'Shine therapy' Hairstraightner review

Infused with Moroccan Argan Oil?









Last week my old straightners broke and I have been using my silly little cheap ones for the rest of the week, I found these when I was shopping for makeup and defiantly liked the sound of them and thought id give them a go.


What I liked the sound of?
.Ceramic coated plates infused with Moroccan argan oil
.Heats up in 15 seconds
.Heat resistant pouch
.9 settings from 150 - 230C
.Digital temperature display
.Auto shut of after 60min


When I first turned these on I could already feel the plates warming up instantly, which is what I have missed, nothings more annoying than not having a lot of time to get ready and having to wait for your straightners to warm up.
When the straightners are heated evenly it enhances micro conditioners through the plates onto your hair leaving the hair healthy and shiny looking and even made my hair feel soft so having straightners that also protects the hair from damage is a good thing and something that I feel more companies need to do with there own straightners and other hair products, you also get a 5 year warranty which is a good length of time to have the same pair of straightners.


Overall I am super pleased with these and so happy that I went to go and buy makeup that day otherwise I wouldn't of purchased these, from suffering with slightly damaged hair I feel that these will be so much better to use on my hair than any normal straightner.

GlossyBox






Hey lovelies,
This is the November GlossyBox and I have mixed reviews about it but firstly here's what I received:
❤Sport fx brush rrp £10.99
❤Modellauncher bronzer rrp £16.50
❤Rodial Glamolash mascara rrp £24
❤Boots charcoal sheet mask rrp £2.50
The packaging is on point, cute, stylish and I'm keeping this box to store some of my makeup items in.

As this was my first ever GlossyBox I was excpecting some of the items to be abit better, its amazing for value but for what I like not as much,
I'm currently testing out the Model launcher safari bronzer which I'm actually liking right now, it gives you that definition you want.
I'm also currently using the Rodial glamolash mascara which I'm liking as well, instead of using my benefit mascara everyday I've decided to use this and it gives pretty much the same look just doesn't last as long.
The sport fx brush doesn't really appeal to me but I will give it a go somepoint and see how it goes and I can't wait to try the charcoal mask, who doesn't love a facemask?
My December box should be arriving for Tuesday which I have higher hopes for as its Christmas!!🌠 so stay tuned for another review.
Overall I think its such a great and exciting idea as you never know what you are going to get!

Nyx Advent calendar







 Hey lovelies,
Hope your well, I decided to review the nyx advent calendar as I havent seen many bloggers review a beauty calendar this year...

Its a 24 day countdown to Christmas, including:
💋4 x Matte lipsticks
💋3 x Cream lipsticks
💋2 x  Chubby lip creams
💋4 x lipsticks
💋3 x Matte lip creams
💋3 x Lipsticks
💋5 x  Creamy lip lipglosses

You get a different surprise behind every door, I love that they include different lip products rather than the same thing, my favourites have to be
👄 Matte lipstick - Eden
👄Liquid lipstick - Pushup
👄Liquid lipstick - Embellishment
👄Lipstick - Ripe Berry
👄Chubby lip cream - Russian Roulette

The lipsticks and the lip creams are so creamy which I love, as in the winter my lips get really dry meaning I can't always wear lipsticks or lip creams, but now I can, which I'm so excited about❤ This has to be my favourite advent calendar I have ever had!
Its such a great idea to get you more in the Christmas spririt..
Have you picked up a nyx calendar or any other beauty calendars?

Fancii 7-in-1 brush set







Hello Lovelies,
Hope you're all well!
I've been wanting to try a facial brush for as long as I can remember...
I got to try out the fancii 7-in-1 waterproof face & body cleansing spin brush set, firstly you get:
🌼Large body brush
🌼Facial brush
🌼Exfoliating foam head
🌼Rolling massager
🌼Silicone face brush
🌼Pumice stone
🌼Shower handle extender

After using this brush, I could tell the difference from using this to cleans my face to cleansing my face using my hands.. My face looked soo much cleaner and its such a easier and quicker routine in the mornings!

The bristles on the brushes are super soft meaning it will be gentle to your skin and its suitable for all skin types.

My other favourite brush has to be the large body brush, by connecting the shower handle extender onto the device, it made scrubbing my back so much easier, the brush has 2 speed settings whether you want a deep cleansing or gentle exfoliation which is soo handy!
This is honestly one of my favourite "go to" items right now!
You can check out fancii instagram @fanciico

I can't recommend this product anymore!

Evening lovelies,

I got to review/share my thoughts on a pre launch box called boxie, which I was super excited about!
Teen boxie is a new subscription box aimed for teenagers, which is to launch fully on 1st May 2017 you get a mixture of branded stationery, makeup/beauty, fashion, lifestyle products.
Every month you will receive different products for £19.95.



 Want to know what I received in this box?
💄Tanya Burr candy lip gloss - £5.99
💄Royal lashed out eyelash curlers - £4.99
💄w7 beat it nude eye-shadow palette - £9.99
💄Sass & belle friends trinket dish - £3.00

💄Saffron false eyelashes - £2.99
💄Sass & belle friends heart decoration £2.00
💄Tinc cloud keyring - £4.95
(Value - £47.80)
I love the sleek design of this box, its so pretty & I've kept this box to store some of my makeup bits in.

The pink cloud keyring is the cutest and my niece has her eye on it!👍


 Such s great idea putting in eyelashes... Teenagers these days are all about copying celebrity eye makeup look & you get the glue with these.
Such a gorgeous red & I cannot wait to wear this in the summer, also one of my favorites in the box.💋

I've been using this felt tip eyeliner everyday since I received it, its so much quicker to create the cat eye flick & it doesnt dry out on your eyes which is always good.

(Full of surprises) ❤
 Sass & Belle will always be one of my favourites to get little things like these, I'm using the dish to store my rings & earrings in, they're so cute!
 #Love


When I first opened the box I was overwhelmed with how many great products you get in one box.. I was mainly drawn over to the w7 palette as I seem to be collecting these but didn't have the beat it nude palette, so you can tell how excited I was when receiving this!

This is one of my favourite subscription boxes I've had.
Even though I like beauty boxes, I love that you get other things as well as beauty products in this box such as lifestyle, stationery and fashion items, it makes the box more exciting, as you never know what your about to receive, it's such a great way for teens to try out makeup everymonth and will make a lovely present!
I honestly cannot wait to see what everyone gets in the first box!
Also Pam the lovely owner of Boxie will answer any queries you have quickly.
❤ Heres a 10% off code for your first box: BOXIE0517 ❤
