Glossybox November 2016

Hey guys!

I can’t believe how quick the months go by! It’s Glossybox time again 🙂 And it’s nearly Christmas too.

So let’s see what this little pink box got in store for us this November.

glossybox-november-review.jpg

1.  Ruby Professional– Large tapered Blending Brush- This is a perfect addition to my makeup brush collection. Currently, I have 2 blending brushes, however, none of which are this soft. This brush is the softest one I have had the chance to feel/use. I am excited to create some real badass smokey eyes with this little gem. This retails for €8, which is relatively fair these days. Not the most expensive and not the cheapest however I can tell already that this will be my favourite blending brush.

2.111 Skin– Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask- I am a big fan of sheet masks, and face masks so I am buzzing about this one. If you head over to my Instagram you can see me trying out another gel face mask not that long ago. I looked rather silly, and J thought I was going mad. But it worked and my skin felt amazing. So I am really looking forward to giving my skin some extra loving in this cold winter. This is normally priced £20 which for one mask may seem crazy, but I bet it makes my skin feel like a million dollars. Gotta wait and see…

3. De Bruyere Beaute– Jumbo Eye Pencil in Bubble 07. This is such a gorgeous shade for winter. I love deep khaki and browns, and the gold tone of it just lovely. Apparently, this product was featured in Victoria Beckham’s fashion show. If it’s good enough for the models I am sure my eyes will have no problem giving this a go. I swatched the pencil, and it is super pigmented, however, it blends out really easily. I am definitely adding this to my collection with pride. Might also be a nice bronzer/highlight as well during the winter. Hmmm.. This gem is €15 and will be a great addition to ladies and gents who like an easy eyeshadow on a busy morning.

4.Now ,this next product I can’t really comment about. I am not a false eyelash wearer as I wear glasses ad even if I just use too much mascara, it touched my lenses. (please tell me I am not the only one!!) However, these do look really pretty and I do have a few other lashes in my makeup stash too. I will definitely give them a go once I figure out how to apply lashes. Bare with me I am no MUA. Anyhow, this is the Kiss- Looks so natural lashes that you can pick up in your local Superdrug. It’s only £4.95 as well and I believe these can be used over and over again so it really is not expensive. (They are on sale currently for JUST £3.32- bargain)

5.Wilkinson Sword- Raspberry Rain razors– I’d be lying if I’d say I wasn’t excited to see this. I HATE hair- it’s not my fetish for sure. TMI Fil.. .Anyways, I was excited as I do really like Wilkinsons. I’m sure everyone knows that lady razors SUCK and most of us girls use men razors. Saying that, I love the Quattro range so yeah, I like this and it’s a great shout as it’s always useful to have. May I add they actually smell really good? probably not an important aspect, but they smell LOVELY. It’s on sale on Superdrug’s website so instead of £5.99 it is only £2.97. Another bargain for you for the Christmas party.

Last but not least we also got a cheeky piece of Raffaello. It is one of my favourites, and I like it so much better than Ferrero Rochers. We used to always get one from Daddy (by one I mean one big box) for women’s day so yeah, this gone done as a treat.

That is it for this month. I really am impressed with the box and I know all (maybe not the lashes) will be used up fairly quickly. I love Glossybox as it gives me great ideas for new products, and also gift ideas for Christmas.

Thanks for reading, as always:

Love,

Aliexpress- Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick Dupes

 

Hey guys!

I’m so excited to review these beauties today. I have been wanting a few of the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks for such a long time, but at $18 each plus delivery I wasn’t able to get them. UNTIL I found some dupes on Aliexpress. This is the first time I have used Aliexpress but I guarantee it’s not the last.

I went a tad crazy, since the prices were really really low and picked 7 colours all together. (came to less than £10 with delivery- BARGAIN). Obviously, at first, I was rather sceptical and thought the products are going to be poor quality, however, I was pleasantly surprised. I really do love all 7 colours, some more than others and obviously, a few will only be suitable for fancy dress or gigs. Yes, the colours are not completely accurate and are not as great as Jeffrees, but I am impressed with them all, and the packaging looks quite original too.

Right let’s see the colours up close (don’t judge-not the best at applying lipstick, but I better bloody practice since these will last me forever)

The colours from top to bottom are celebrity skin (my favourite), abused, rose matter, dirty money, masochist, androgyny and finally anna nicole. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know if you have any of the original Jeffree Star lippies. 

Love, Fil x

 

 

 

October favourites

Hey guys!

I thought I’ll share with you a few of the things that I have been loving this month.

  • Pumpkin spiced lattes from Starbucks – Need I say more??! I must not be the only person who is counting the months down until September so she can finally get her hands on grande pumpkin spice latte. If you haven’t tried it, then you MUST go and grab one before it is too late.

  • To stay on the food wagon, this is a bit of a strange one, but since I ate at LEAST one a day this month, it deserves a feature. These biscuits above are from Lidl and are individually wrapped and come in a pack of 10 for under £2. Who can say no to that right?? I love them and they remind me of the ones I ate in Hungary as a kid.  

Right onto some beauty products:

  • As you might have read in Octobers glossybox review, I have received the Rituals body cream. Let me tell you guys this might just be the best thing I have ever applied on my skin. I absolutely love this, the smell is incredible and it just glides onto your skin. It also stays on your skin all day, AND the scent stays strong throughout the day too. Once I jump into the shower, I can feel that it doesn’t mix with the water on my skin. Of course, it washes away with some shower gel. I think it has been a great addition to my tanning lotion too and has kept my skin soft and smelling amazing all throughout the month. Expensive?-YES but worth is so much. 
  • Another ‘new-to-me’ product is the Real Techniques brush cleansing palette. WOW! this thing is great! My brushes have not been this clean since the first time I got them .I couldn’t believe how much ‘dirt’ has been coming out each and every one of them. (Bit gross really but we have all been there) I cannot recommend it enough and if you use makeup at all this has to be something you add to your tools and accessories, as I couldn’t imagine cleaning my brushes without it. It is recommended that you use their cleansing fluid alongside the palette for the best result, and yes it does work well, however I will stick to baby shampoo or bath products for now. its priced at around £10-£15 depends on where you purchase it, but by shopping around you will be able to find one for a decent price. 
  • Lastly, but definitely not least I have been loving my Too Faced- Peach palette lately. I have purchased this off Ebay (will not link the seller but you can find them easily) so I am not a 100% sure that it is real (in fact it’s more than likely fake). Saying that it smells like peaches and the colours are great and pigmented. I cannot fault the product and I believe I got my hands on it for less than £10 which is a bargain either way. Love love love it! 

So, these are my October favourites, I hope you have enjoyed them.

Love,

Fil, x
