I tried something a little different this month – before sitting down and writing my Glossybox review, I decided to try out each and every product for the duration of the month, and THEN review them! I’m sure this is actually what most people do but oh well. Late to the bandwagon again!
UNIVERSAL BEAUTY COSMETICS BLUSHER & LIP STAIN DUO
I’ve never actually used a cheek and lip duo before – they don’t really appeal to me. I never seem to get it right and end up looking like I’ve used too much, especially on my cheeks. I’ve only ever used this on my lips; it’s subtle enough to wear every day and it’s a very pretty pink colour. It obviously doesn’t have the best staying power and if I’m wearing something on my lips I like it to be super noticable, but it’s nice anyway!
TRIFLE COSMETICS LIP PARFAIT
I must admit I’m not a huge fan of this. Mainly because it’s such a light pink which really doesn’t suit me! I can’t say whether it delivered on all the other factors mentioned because I didn’t keep it on for that long – I really did not like it. One thing I will say is that I love the adorable packaging!
BEE GOOD HONEY & CAMELINA EXFOLIATOR
I am obsessed with this! I love receiving any type of skincare in a Glossybox because I’m always looking for different things to freshen up my skincare routine. This smells so sweet and since it’s an exfoliator, it leaves my skin feeling so fresh and clean and super duper soft! I’m also a huge fan of this packaging, the bees are so cute.
I haven’t tried this shampoo out yet – I have a specific shampoo I use to help my dry scalp and give my hair volume so I’m hesitant when trying new shampoo’s. I believe Estee revealed the brand on her blog (link HERE), I won’t spoil it for you so go and check it out!
RITUALS BODY CREAM
I’m not usually a fan of body creams or moisturisers or anything because I just don’t use them! But actually, the few times I have used this it has left my legs so smooth. Even on my second day of not shaving, which is so rare because my leg hair grows back in so quickly. It also smells so dreamy and it’s quite a decent size so I think this might last me a little while!
This is up there with one of my favourite things in this months box, this lipliner is from Primark and it’s like a felt tip pen. I much prefer this to the pencil lipliners that feel like you’re dragging them across your lips – this one glides! I was given this shadee in Midnight Crimson which is a lovely deep purple. Perfect, because I don’t have any purple lipliners and it is now purple lipstick season! This stuff also stays on for AGES, that swatch didn’t come off my hand no matter how hard I scrubbed. Pretty amazing for £3!
