Hello there guys!
I realise this is a little later in the month than usual, but will all the exciting things going on with my fundraising, I just had too put my usual posts on hold to get you the exciting bits first!
For those of you new to GlossyBox its a monthly subscription box that’s roughly £10 per month (these costs change if you preorder several months) and they contain 5 beauty products. These are usually full size or sample size, and you usually end up getting a hella bargain!
This month’s theme is Galentines, since February is all about sharing the love, with everyone… not just our partners, and it seems that there’s a huge choice of products that could be sent this month. So now you’re up to date, let’s get down to business…
First up this month is the Nude Pop Lip Tint from Steve Laurant, which as a full size product retails for £17. It is cruelty free and very hydrating on the lips, but personally it feels a little bit like a glorified lip balm. I don’t notice any pigmentation on the lips, and so I don’t feel like this product is for me. It’s great for no makeup, makeup days but I personally wouldn’t spend my money on this product.
Next up, just to get my moaning out of the way and end on a happy note, the Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion from Stuudio10 Beauty gets a definite no from me. We get a mini size in the box, but the full size retails for £26 and is said to instantly prime, refresh and hydrate, but can also be used as a setting spray, which on paper sounds great. However the ‘mist’ is more like a garden hose, which is okay as a primer, but definitely not as a setting spray. I didn’t really notice any hydration or benefited from the product, so I feel the price is a bit steep.
I’m going to talk about the Emotion Allowed Mascara from Icona Milano next. The box contains a full size product that retails for £15. I love this mascara, it doesn’t make the lashes appear clumpy, but it still gives a natural looking voluminous and lengthy lash. It’s been my go to for over a week now and I just love the look it gives. I am so glad to have been introduced to this!
Next I’ll talk about The Ciate Mini in Goal Digger which retails for £6, or for £9 as a full size product. Having never used a Ciate product before, I as excited because I’ve only ever heard good things, and I’ll be honest… I was not disappointed! This glitter polish is so pigmented that I only needed one coat and it dried so fast that even little impatient me didn’t ruin it!
I’ve popped it on one of my Primark false nails below so you can see.
Lastly, I need to mention the Sleek Divine Eyeshadow Palette, which if you know me, I have several, so it will come as no surprise to hear I was happy about its feature in this months box. I was even lucky enough to grab one I didn’t already have so I really have won! The shadows are pigmented and blend fabulously, and they’re a total bargain at £9 each! Here are my swatches…
So I suppose that’s it from me for this week! Please if you have the chance go and visit my posts about the work I’m doing to rise money for the UK Sepsis Trust you can find them here and here, and you can donate here.
Hope you have a great week and I will see you all soon!
