So I am majorly delayed with with this post, sorry about that! I don’t know where this month has gone!
But anyway another month has passed, and as always I have received my two monthly beauty subscription boxes; Glossybox and Birchbox. February has been an awful month so far to say the least. I’ve had a lot of stress at work but don’t worry I won’t bore you with it! I’ve already bored myself with whinging about it. So I’ll jump straight in with the reviews of these boxes, which both turned up on the same day for once! Usually there a few days apart, so it was an exciting day when they both arrived!
Sleek mineral based eyeshadow palette
In vintage romance shade. Very nice indeed! It’s awesome having a full size product in your box and there is a good variety of shades which go well with my current make up routine.
Skin chemists aqua repair facial serum
I used this after removing all my make up and my skin felt instantly hydrated and fresh!
Ciate mini nail varnish
This came in ‘What The Shell’ shade which is a bright purple colour with a blue hue to it. I normally stick to either black nails or a plain nude colour, nothing too outrageous. When I first saw the colour I thought ‘oooh I don’t know if I like that’ but I put it on and I’m now in love with the colour! It also goes really well with my hair which is pink & purple so this was an excellent choice for my box!
Steve Laurant lip gloss
This posh looking pot of lip gloss was a nice treat as I don’t ever spend out on nice lip products. The pot itself fits just right in my make up bag, although a little bulky. I love the colour it gave to my lips and they felt nicely moisturised.
Studio 10 make up mist glow-plexion
This is an all in one primer, hydrating most and setting spray. I have only ever used one setting spray which was really cheap so I wasn’t expecting too much and couldn’t really tell the difference. It was hard to get a light spray with this and however far away I seemed to hold it I ended up both a drenched face and uneven splatters. Maybe it’s just me, but I wouldn’t pay full price for this product. I’d rather stick to using a quick light spray
