February Glossy Box Review


I hope you're all having a good week so far!! :)

I'm going to do my in depth review of the latest edition of Glossy Boxes which is the February Fashion Week Edition as this week is London Fashion Week! All the products in my box this month are designed to keep you looking and smelling your best throughout the day as well as to keep you going!

The Glossy Box colour is now back to the usual dusty pink instead of the Limited Edition 'December Christmas' and 'January Valentine's' boxes. This boxes came with several different 'cards' this month. Along with the usual products card, it also came with a leaflet with information on London Fashion Weekend and a 'Expect the Unexpected' card which is quite exciting!

So now you've seen all the not so exciting bits which I always show for new people to my blog we can now move onto what I received in my box this month! I'll also add in a point as to why it's great for 'keeping you looking and smelling your best throughout the day as well as to keep you going' for the theme of this month's box :)

Number 1. DuWop Venom Lipgloss (Buttercup)

This lipgloss is fantastic! It's one of those where it tingles when you have it on your lips and it plumps them slightly and it's been seen as an 'alternative to lip fillers' I don't think it gives that much of an effect, but it's nice to try something different! I got the colour 'Buttercup' and it's a lovely brown/beige/pink with sparkles although the pink doesn't show up too well in this picture. It's a small handbag size which is great for carrying around all day in your bag and topping it up as and when you need to!

RRP: £16.00
Available at:

Number 2. Dr Bronner Lavender Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizers are always great to carry around for when you need a quick spritz but this one has the added bonus of having such a great scent to it too!
When you first spray it, it's quite faint but as it dried on your hands, the smell builds in strength to give a wonderful strong lavender smell as well as killing germs. It is also a fair trade product so if you like that sort of stuff along with all the other great features then this would suit you well!
It's also a good handbag size again so you can just use it as and when you need it :)

RRP: £3.99
Available at: Dr

Number 3. Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Relaxing Balm

I haven't used this product yet as I don't like to use too may products in my hair as it makes it greasy but I will try this at some point. It is designed to smooth and relax your hair. You'd use it while your hair is still damp and then style it normally to achieve a more relaxed hair style which would be great if you have wavy hair - like me! So I'll update this once I've used it and put up a few pictures of the finished look!

RRP: £15.25
Available at: Paul

Number 4. BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow (Wolf Howl)

This colour is really beautiful blue/purple and full of sparkle and is called 'Wolf Howl'. However, it looks really pigmented but doesn't swatch very well and takes a lot of building up in order to get a good strong colour. I presume this is because it's quite a fine powder and maybe being a 'mineral powder' has something to do with it. So, it is a nice colour, but I'm slightly disappointed that it's so misleading with the pigmentation! :(

RRP: £7.00
Available at: BM

Number 5. Como Shambhala Invigorate Shower Gel

I love shower gels which wake you up in the morning and smell really fresh and vibrant and this is one of those! It smells as though you've just walked into a spa. I have the scent 'eucalyptus, geranium, lavender and peppermint' which is a strong combination which really wakes you up and makes you feel fresh. This size is great for overnight travelling and fits to the theme of this box perfectly as it leaves a subtle smell on your skin too :)

RRP: £20.00
Available at: Como

That's everything I've receiver in my Glossy Box for this moth so I'm quite pleased, but it's not the best one which I received so I'm slightly disappointed, but there are stil some good products and I still enjoying receiving it each month and finding out what I've got!

3 Models Own Nail Varnishes!

Hi Everyone!

As I said in my What I got for Christmas 2011 video I got 15 Nail Varnsihes from Models Own! :)

This will obviously take me a while to wear all of them, but I'll post three colours at a time to keep you all updated! :D

Number 1. Scarlet Sparkle

This is an absolutely gorgeous vibrant sparkly red. I wore it just after Christmas as it's so festive but can still be worn at any time of year. It is FULL of glitter and looks beautiful as it reflects so much light and really stands out, this is definitely already one of my favourites! :)

Scarlet Sparkle
RRP: Single Polish £5.00
Available at: Models Own

Number 2. Purple Grey

This colour is great for me as I have quite pale skin naturally, so in the winter it looks really good! :) It's a deep purple with a hint of grey but it's still a lovely colour, great for this season. It's a matte colour but with a top coat it has a great shine to it.

Purple Grey
RRP: Single Polish £5.00
Available at: Models Own

Number 3. Raspberry Crush

This final colour is beautiful! It's a vibrant pink/red, I know it's more of a summery colour, but I LOVE having pink nails and have resisted it for so long, I ended up giving in to this gorgeous colour. It's matte, but with a good top coat stands out and I've had loads of comments on it! :)

Raspberry Crush
RRP: Single Polish £5.00
Available at: Models Own

I'll post more pictures of the other colours as and when I get round to wearing them! :)

Have you got any Nail Polishes from Models Own?!

Glossy Box January Review (Valentine's Box)

Here's the latest edition of the Glossy Box's, the January 2012 Valentine's Box!!

It's a gorgeous matte bright pink box with a cute neon pink heart sticker. It's the perfect colours and combination of products to get you ready for Valentine's Day!

Number 1. Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner

This is a gorgeous quality eyeliner which gives an intense colour and lasts all day long! It's size and shape helps you to create precise definiton to your eyes. The colour which I received is 'Powder Pink' it's not a dark colour, however it's great for using under your eyes or the inside of your lower eyelid to highlight and open up your eyes.

RRP: £9.50
Available at: Eyeko

Number 2 & 3. Clarins Extra Firming Day & Night Cream

I've heard lots of great reviews of Clarins products before however, this sort of product isn't something which I would usually use as I don't need to so I can't really comment on it. However, I'm sure that either my Mum or Nanna will be willing to use it and let me know how well it works and what they think of it so I will update this blog when they've got an opinion on it! Sorry!

RRP: Day Cream £46.50
Night Cream £48.00
Available at: Clarins

Number 4. FAB Gentle Body Wash

This is such a sweet smelling body wash, it's lovely. I've never heard of these products before but it's an amazing quality body wash, it's suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin which is great for me as I can't use strong ones. It's lovely to use and leaves you smelling sweet when you come out of the shower too!

RRP: £10.00
Available at: Boots

Number 5. Murad Skin Perfecting Primer

This is a lovely tinted primer which gives you a 'radiant glow'. It suits my skin perfectly due to the colour of foundation that I use however, it wouldn't be so suitable if you have pale skin. It's a liquid and spreads easily on your face to give you that slight 'glow' I like this, however I probably won't be buying a full size one because I prefer using my normal L'Orale primer and Max Factor Foundation, but it's still a good product!

RRP: £29.00
Available at: Murad

This months Glossy Box has had a mixture of excellent and OK products for me. Some of them either aren't applicable to what I need or use where as others are perfect for me! It's just the luck of the draw, btut here is no doubt that Glossy Box still give you high quality product samples at the fraction of the price and I still love it and can't wait to get next months and show you all!
