November Glossybox! :)

Hiya everyone!

This morning felt like Christmas, was busy painting and the postman knocked on the door with four parcels! :D one being the November glossy box! Eeeee

The idea of this months box is to give you an idea of what you could put in your loved ones stocking this Christmas!

Here's whats inside ....

Arbonne FC5 - cooling foot creme

Dead sea spa magik - dead sea bath salts

Monu - Skin perfector

Nail rock - Designer nail wraps

Serge lutens - L'eau serge lutens & Vitriol d'oeillet   ( Perfume HA!)

When i first opened the box i was a little disappointed there wasn't any makeup but after looking properly I'm glad there isn't!

i will use everything at some point, I love the nail wraps and the perfumes smell lovely!

Thanks for peeking! :D

Feel Unique November beauty box!

Hiya everyone!

First of all let me apologize for my lack of posts! I have been decorating my little boys bedroom and haven't had much time to blog :( Back now though so ill just get on with this post!

You will have probably guessed that's its about the feel unique beauty box.
I got my first one this morning (Novembers box) and oh my god! Its a good one.

Its a gorgeous matte black box with shiny bright pink writing ... love it!

I was expecting the box to be the same as most of the others with a lift off lid ...

When as you can see from the photo its a pull out drawer. I love that, it gives the box something different its like a drawer of amazing treasures! :D

Here's how the box was set out ...

And here's everything i got ..

I don't think anyone can accuse feel unique of being stingy with the sample sizes as these are far from it! I love that i will use everything in this box aswell.

Here's a closer look at everything ..

Emma Hardie amazing face natural lift and sculpt moringa cleansing balm and dual action professional cleansing cloth.

Schwarzkopf professional OSIS+ dust it mattifying powder

Xen-tan deep bronze luxe

Goldwell dualsenses rich repair 60 sec treatment

Bella pierre shimmer powder in Penny, I swatched it for you aswell ...

And last of all ..

Prada Candy eau de parfum. This was actually just a little freebie but it smells BEAUTIFUL!

I am so impressed with this box and will definitely be keeping my subscription !!

Whats your fave beauty box? :)

September Glossybox!

Hi everyone! I got my Glossy box the other day ( super exciting! ) So thought i would do a little post on it just showing you what i got in it really. I'm sure most people know what Glossy box is but if not just go to and take a look :)

One of the things i love most about Glossy box is the packaging. It comes in a really cute pink box with the Glossy logo on the top ...

I actually keep the boxes as storage just because there way to pretty to throw out! I have used one as a gift box for my friend and filled it with ELF goodies! :D

Inside the box is just as pretty! Its wrapped in black tissue paper, sealed with a Glossy sticker and tied with a pink bow :)

It was so much neater than this but I'm just rubbish at bows! ha ha, The card tells you all about your box and the products you've been sent.

I love unwrapping it and seeing whats inside, i usually don't give into the spoilers but this month i couldn't resist and caved! So i already had a rough idea of what i was getting ....

This is how it arrived, i was surprised nothing had broken because there was no proper protection for the products but it was all perfect! :)

Anyways here's what i got in mine in abit more detail...

Dead sea spa magik - Salt brushing
Voted 'best exfoliator' by you magazine. A harmonious blend of pure dead sea salts, Vitamin E and Coconut oil, with a hypnotic citrus aroma, make this a wonderfully pampering body exfoliator.

HD brows - eye&brow palette
Eyebrow experts HD brows have developed this fantastic multi-use palette containing four matte eye-brow colours. They double up as an eye shadow and eyeliner as well as lasting 24 hours!

Moa - The green balm
Crammed with organic yarrow and lots of other lovely natural stuff this handy little pot of moa balm has many weird and wonderful uses, we're just balmy about it!

Neal and Wolf - Harmony intensive care treatment
Harmony has been specially created to repair damaged hair, using a unique combination of intensive conditioners that deliver an instant transformation leaving hair shiny, healthy and manageable.

Plum by Mary Greenwell - Eau de parfum
plum is the signature by world-renowned celebrity makeup artist Mary Greenwell. A stunning classic chypre with a memorable modern twist.


I'm super impressed with everything i got! I'm not sure what the use of the balm is though so if anyone knows do let me know! ha ha.

I LOVE the Neal Wolf conditioner! Ive actually used half already, it leaves my hair sooooo soft and shiny!

I'll also mention that on the card telling you about your products you get a discount code for any re purchases :)

I shall update when ive tried the salt brushing!

Benefit They're Real!

As most people will know Benefit have just launched a brand new mascara! Its called They're Real! I was super excited to get it when i saw all the reviews and photos on there face book page. I got mine from House of Fraser, costing £18.50.

Like all of Benefits products the packaging is great, really sleek and just looks great taking pride of place on my make up drawer's!

The thing i like most about this mascara is the brush. Its the plastic comb brush which is my favourite type. I recently splashed out on a new mascara and the brush is awful!

I took some photos of the mascara before and after so you can decide for yourself whether you like it or not ( Crazyyyyy eyes!) ...

I really do like it! I think i could of gotten away with another coat before it clumped. Ive seen a few people saying how they had a little bother removing the mascara but i had no problem at all! I used a st Ives face wipe and it came straight off :D

It lasted all day without any fallout!

There's not really much else to say ... Its my new favourite mascara! (Band wagon i know, but seriously :) )

My make up storage! :) (03/09/11)

Hi everyone I've decided to do a post on how i store all my makeup. Ive seen this type of post on lots of other blogs and love seeing how other people do it so i thought i would share mine :)

I would LOVE a dressing table but unfortunately my room isn't big enough so i make do with my chest of drawers. So as you can see its pretty simple, i have a small set of silver drawers which i bought from asda. My main makeup is all stored in the patterned drawers, i got these from WHS ... life saver!

My nail varnish drawer, perfect height so i can have them all stood up. I used to have them in a make up bag and it was a nightmare trying to find a certain one!

A whole drawer dedicated to my ELF mineral makeup which i love!

The other drawers are just random stuff like face cleansers,  nail stuff and my lovely baby wipes!

These are just perfect for storing makeup! i now have two sets a draw for every category! (super organised!) ha ha. I don't know what i did before i got these, i know where everything is which means no rummaging about :)

The ELF brush holders are amazing! more than big enough for my brushes :)

Then i just have my brush cleaner and face wipes on the side, just laziness really ha ha.

So that's how i store my products its nothing special but for me it works! :)

How do you store yours?? xx xx

MUA eyeshadows and mosaic blush!

MUA are becoming one of my favourite brands! There super cheap but amazing quality, i recently went into my local super drug and just stood swatching all there products wanting to buy all of it! ha ha.

I don't have that many of there products at the minute but here's what i have ...

Oh my god i cant even explain how much i love these! especially shade 9! its the most gorgeous pearly purple/blue! The photos don't even do it justice. Shade 18 is a lovely pastel matte purple, really lovely. Shade 6 is great but i don't wear it that often, i have green eyes and i think its too much on me, Its a super nice colour though a shimmery light green :) Shade 15 is probably one of the best black eye shadows i own!

These eye shadows are priced at £1.00!!! I couldn't believe it when i saw the price, very impressed!

I'm not sure if the next product i have is one of the newer ones, anyways its a trio eyeshadow in Passion

This product is like my best friend at the moment! Its one of my most reached for products just because i LOVE purple eye shadows. I cant believe how pigmented MUA'S eye shadows are, ill be honest i wasn't expecting much but i was pleasantly surprised. All the colours in the trio are pearl .. very pretty :)

This product retails at £2.50 ... bargain i know!!

And last but not least is my new favourite blusher! Mosaic blush in English Rose.

It gives a really light pinky/peachy glow with a little bit of shimmer :)

These blushers retail again at only £2.50!

That's all the MUA products i own at the moment but i will definitely be buying some more! If your looking for great quality without breaking the bank then MUA is the place to be!

If you would like to look at the full range then check out the super drug website and search MUA :)

E.L.F Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil's

Hi everyone! So my plan was to upload a new review a day (if possible) but my laptop decided to break! But now its back and good as new! So I'm going to review the E.L.F shimmer eyeliner pencils! These pencils retail at £1.50 each and come with a pencil sharpener built into the lid. They come in 9 different colours. I actually thought i had all the colours but when i checked i seem to have two of the same one! the one I'm missing is boldly bronzed which i intend to get and will add a swatch later on :)
so here are the ones i have ...

I also swatched to give you an idea of the true colours..

These pencils are lovely, there so soft and glide on smoothly and don't tug the skin like some eyeliners. The colour pay off is great! you only need to the draw along the lashline once and you get a vibrant result!

As i said above these come with a built in sharpener in the lid. I think this is the only downside to this product. You can see how some of the product has stayed on the plum passion blade .. it would be abit messy if you like to have your makeup in a bag. The lids dont tend to stay on very well either so you could end up with product on your other items.

The staying power of them is great! I put mine on in the morning, usually with no primer and its always the same when i come to take it off at the end of the day!

Sooo yeah i love these! definitely one of my top 10 E.L.F products!

E.L.F Mineral eyeshadows

So i was planning on getting some of these eye shadows for a while but couldn't decide on which colours to get but then the lovely Elf team posted a promotion offering 10 free mineral eye shadows with a minimum spend, AMAZING! So of course i took advantage of this offer. These eye shadows retail at £3.00 each from They come in a small round pot but one pot will last a long time as you don't need to use alot of product :)

I swatched all the colours i have:

Innocent is a matte neutral colour with a really soft finish, perfect for creating a natural eye.


Love this! its a shimmery peachy/pinky colour, could be used to instantly transform a natural eye to a nighttime look without too much effort!


This colour is almost matte, it has a few sparkles in it but there hardly noticeable. Its a lovely orangey brown colour.


A deep bronze colour with lots of sparkle! LOVE it! :)


A matte medium brown gorgeous colour, looks completely different in the pot compared to when swatched. A really lovely colour :)


i LOVE this colour! The name says it all, its super girly a really nice light purple with a little sparkle. This one is my personal favourite out of all of these :)

This ones an odd colour. Its a reddy purple with some shimmer


This is a semi matte light grey. Melts really nicely into the skin. I will most likely use this as my light colour for a black smokey eye! lovely colour.

Again im not sure how to describe this colour. Its kind of a mix between purple and a dark grey :S confusing i know! lols, Very shimmery! An amazing colour.

Gorgeous matte black! Ive been looking for a high pigment matte black for a while and i did not think i would find it for £3.00. Amazing!

So yeah i love these eyeshadows! By far the best eyeshadows ive used, there so easy to blend together and the finish on the eyes is amazing! I love them, actually planning on getting the newer colours when there in stock! :D
