GlossyBox June 2013

Glossybox for June 2013
I think I am at the end of the road for Glossyboxes. The monthly excitement has gone and been replaced with resentment that I spend money on a random box of things I may not use, instead of buying one treat per month to the same value of £13... Or saving that money (save it?! Who am I trying to kid?!)

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede - Front Row

Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick
Colour - Front Row
New all day wear, suede soft lipsticks from Revlon. Revlon have to be one of my favourite drugstore brands. They constantly come out with new products that are fresh...and bank account emptying.

Glossybox May - 2nd Birthday Box

A month where I have sought out no spoilers for Glossybox, so all was to be the unexpected when I returned from work to my 2nd birthday edition Glossybox. I think not knowing what others have received helps keep a fresh mind, otherwise I end up with my fingers crossed for certain products...followed by jealous disappointment. Fun.

L'Oreal Micellar Water

It's been about a year since I first wanted to try the Bioderma cleansing water but I've been reluctant to spend money on shipping the stuff. I think it's also about time I uncrossed my fingers for a surprise trip to Paris where I can peruse the pharmacies and lug back a suitcase full of skincare any time soon! ;-)
So L'Oreal are offering up their version. A cleansing Micellar water. Gentle on skin yet effectively melting away the day's makeup.

MAC Lipstick - Plink

Gatwick north terminal offered me up a whole host of MAC goodies last week. Archie's Girls got a bit of a swatch-athon but nothing appealed.  So I got to swatching all the "my lips but better" pinks I could lay my eyes on and found Plink. Which had me whipping out the Visa card pretty sharpish (before boyfriend in tow could raise his eyebrows at me)

GlossyBox April - Pearl Lowe Colaboration

I got home from Spain today to my GlossyBox slung over my back gate (Hermes at it's best). I have already seen some spoilers as I knew I'd be on holiday when it came and I just couldn't wait that damn long!
This month is a stunning limited edition GlossyBox in all it's floral vintage glory! Designed by Pearl Lowe (how can you not be fabulously vintage with a name like Pearl?! Love it!)
I have to say I adore when GlossyBox pull a different limited edition box out the bag, they look so lovely stacked up in my bureau filled with ribbon and buttons.

Illamasqua Femme Intense Gloss

Coral gloss in all it's intense, concentrated colour goodness!
Likened to a liquid lipstick with high shine. It's a tad sticky as you would expect from a long lasting gloss but not uncomfortably so. It's easy to forgive a little stickyness for hours of wear time.
Illamasqua - Femme

Coming Soon From Ciaté

Ciaté have pretty quickly pushed their way to the front when it comes to innovative new nail looks.

Some creative little soul in Ciate HQ really is pulling these ideas right out the bag!

Handbag Essentials

Besides the half dried up pack of wet-wipes, drawing of a "Potato with a smiley face" and pair of chopsticks (?!) my handbag holds a little bag of beauty essentials that get used on a daily basis. And since we are all nosey at heart, here is what's inside.

Products I Regret Buying

My lovely friend Mez did a post on her blog recently about products she regrets buying for various reasons, you can read it here 
 You can build up quite the little stash of dusty products you wasted your minimum wage on. Especially when impulse buying.
So here is my sad, unloved little collection. Some of it too pretty to part with despite never getting used.

GlossyBox March 2013

I sneaked a few peek's at some spoilers this month. I just couldn't help myself!
Based on being City-chic ready with an extra cute little booklet full of info on big cities around the world and a page of adorable stickers.

Spring Face Of The Day - FOTD

We may be due a week load of rain but the one sunny afternoon and sprouting daffodils means Spring is here and good weather is on the way! You have to live in faith right?!
So, Spring makeup trends here I come!
Pinks, Lilacs and peaches. Fresh complexions, dewy makeup and less coverage...Or at least the illusion of less coverage ;-)

Birchbox February 2013 - London Fashion Week

Birchbox...Yes the box I was supposed to cancel after a month...I may have accidentally *on purpose* forgotten to cancel that subscription. So here is my February box, London Fashion Week inspired.

There is something different about these though...

Vampy Red Valentine Lip How To

Sexy vamp red lips bound to make any Valentines night a sexy one!
In reality, I couldn't feel any less sexy as I steadily gain 1lb with each passing week. But a red lip is a push in the right direction...She say's crying into her deep fried Mars bar.
Here is a Vampy take on a traditional red lip.

Nail Polish Storage Idea

If you keep your nail polish in a drawer like I do, then you will be more than familiar with the annoying ritual of picking up endless bottles looking for the colour you want. Especially if you own Nails Inc polishes. You can't see the colour until you pick the bottle out.

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm

I've been trying out a whole host of skincare for my skin that has some kind of hormonal pregnancy rage, making me spotty. Annoyingly spotty.
Enter the much blogged about Emma Hardie Moringa Balm.
A delicate balm that cleanses, calms and rejuvinates. It also moonlight's as a mask and a rescue balm for dry elbows, knees, lips etc.

Detect A Fake MAC Lipstick

A few months ago I was completely (and blissfully) in the dark about fake cosmetics. More to the point, fakes on eBay. I have become aware that you generally can't find a genuine MAC lipstick through all the thousands of fakes being sold.
I own a fake MAC lippie and a real one too. I want to run through some tale tale signs that you are buying or already own a fake.
Now the old saying "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is" doesn't even apply here! Not always anyway! Of course you will see a MAC lippie for a price that you can't possibly pass up because it's just SO cheap! But if it's cheap, normaly priced or rather expensive, it's no way to tell if it's fake.

Birchbox - January 2013

The New York based brand Birchbox recently took over Joliebox and January see's the first box of beauty offering's since the change.
I saw a sneak peek of a product that was to be included in the first Birchbox and was instantly sold as it's a product I have been dying to try. Pushed into purchase by cunning sales techniques. Well played Birchbox!

China Glaze - Pool Party

Screw you winter. Screw your grey skies, bare tree's and lack of colour.
Even more less colour now the snow blanket has descended. 
I'm adding a splash of pink neon to the season of plum's, brown's and navy blue's.
Urghh I'm just sick of neutrals!

L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Diamantissime

Anyone want to have a bash at saying Diamantissime? nope me neither.
I'm going with L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes Diamonds instead, for fear of sounding like a drunk uncultured British citizen!
I got this at Christmas because if there is ever an appropriate time for an adult to wear glitter, it's Christmas right?!

GlossyBox January 2013

Glossybox January is a little Detox number for all the party animals out there. I got on the orange juice hard and fast over Christmas, I know, Living the party life!

L'Oreal Infallible 892 Amber Rush

The perks of having a friend that makes you jealous and jet's off to New York before Christmas...There aren't many perks. Just one really. The promise of America exclusive goodies.
Here is one little gem, added lovingly to my collection.
L'Oreal Infallible pressed pigment eyeshadow in Amber Rush.
