GlossyBox // March Edition

If you read my post on my Look Fantastic box you would of read that I cancelled my Glossybox, as I was getting bit 'meh' with it all, well I lied haha I thought I had cancelled it but apparently I didn't as it had to be after a certain day to not receive the box, this is officially my last one though, Although Im pretty impressed with this months box I think this is my favourite box yet as I love ever single item and I know all the brands. Inside is 4 full sized products plus 2 travel size products. 
The first item is this Naobay Moisturising Peeling worth £13.71, this caught my eye straight away. Its a spanish eco-brand and I love the idea of a Moisturising Peeling milk. It contains particles from the acid tree to remove dulling dead skin cells and brighten the complexion. The consistency is a light weight cream with tiny exfoliative particles that gently buff the skin, sounds great right?
Next are these two Dove Shampoo and conditioners for ageing hair worth £1.19 each, Im not loving this duo as its for 'ageing hair' I don't need that I'm only 24 but I know there are different ages of subscribers so these will be useful for someone. I am going away soon so these would be great to take away with me, I may just give these ago.
This is the NCLA Nail Lacquer worth £13, oh look another nail polish they have to put it. Ive never seen or heard of this brand, the colour is gorgeous though its a bright pinky coral shade, I do love these shade, perfect for spring. Ill be using this on my toes.
This is one of my favourite brands, a full size Sleek Makeup Pout Paint worth £4.99 in the shade port which is a deep berry shade, its perfect for winter. This is very pigmented and a little goes a long way, although it weird having this colour in a spring box. I may go and look for some more spring colours.
Ive never tried anything from Essence before, this is there Lash Princess Volume Mascara worth £3.30, I love the black and orange packaging and you can really grip on the bottle when applying it to your lashes as it has a corseted design. The mascara has a cobra-head shaped wand which has short bristles along the underside of the wand and curved bristles around the top. This sounds quite impressive so I hope it curls my lashes well.

This GlossyBox is my favourite yso far, all the products are worth £37.38. Every single product I will be using except the dove duos I'm not sure about that one ha, I may still give them a go though. I love that these a mixture of skincare, haircare and makeup. What do you think of this months box?

Look Fantastic Beauty Box // March Unboxing

Im so glad I cancelled my Glossybox, the products they were sending were so boring and nothing special. Today I'm here with the Look Fantastic Beauty Box, there is no subscription or contract so you simply purchase the box on the go and it contains 6 products that is worth over £70 which is crazy as your getting it all for £15.00. Ive heard such great things about Look fantastic Beauty boxes so I couldn't wait to receive mine, the temptation was killing me as I didn't know what was inside. Im so impressed with this months and Im definitely going to carry on each month. Lets go ahead and see what I got..
Caudalie Anti Wrinkle Serum - £11.66
I love this brand, so when I saw this I was super excited, I was never expecting to see this EVER. I guess your never too young to start using wrinkle serums, and whats even better is that it helps the skin against environmental factors, whilst treating the skin and prevent the development of wrinkles.
Cowshed Lippy Cow Natural Lip balm - £5
Ive never tried nothing from Cowshed before, I always feel like every subscription box always has to put a lip balm in, I have about 20 now. Although Ive tried it and its very moisturising but the smell and taste is awful. Cute little packaging though.
Lord & Berry EyeLiner Pencil - £10
Im becoming more obsessed with eye makeup at the moment, I've read lots of reviews about lord and berry and this is my first ever makeup item to try from them, this is such a cute little size for travelling around in and for touch ups when on the go, the formula is so soft and smooth I've never felt an eye liner like it.
Nudestix Magnetic Eye colour in the shade Guilt -£24
This is such a gorgeous peachy gold shade, with the most creamiest formulation ever, I couldn't believe how smooth it felt when I watched it onto my hand, this will look pretty over the lid and I'm tempted to go and pick up a few more shade.
Bliss Fat Girl Slim - £10.40
Ive never heard of Bliss before, this is a cream where you rub this on any problem areas such as cellulite, dimples, etc, you simple massage it on the spot for 20-30 seconds to reduce the tone texture of the skin. The cream is very runny and almost transparent, Ill be giving this ago and see if it does the job.
Wet brush - £7.99
Im guessing this is an updated version from the tangle teasers from what Ive read but I'm not entirely sure. I have a tangle teaser so Ill look forward to comparing these two and to see which one does a better job. My hair can be very tangled and sometimes a tangle teaser doesn't do the job, this wet brush does look small so I'm hoping the bristles are strong enough to do the job.

So thats in this months March Look Fantastic Box, Its amazing and I guess they will soon start to sell out. What do you think of this months box? Will you be picking it up?

NEW Makeup Revolution // I Heart Makeup Palettes

I'm here with another Makeup Revolution post yay, these are the NEW I Heart Makeup, I Heart Obsession, limited edition Palettes, there are 5 palettes all together, Pure Cult, Born To Die, West End Girls, Paris and Wild Is The wind and they all have 10 shades inside and retail at £3.99. I was kindly given Paris and West End Girls, and these colours are right up my street. Each palette are packaged nice and slim and are plastic and have a clear lid which makes it easy to see all the colours inside. Ive just started using eyeshadow a lot more recently and been given these has made me even more excited to have a play around with all these colour and creating some amazing looks, I may have to youtube a bit first as I am pretty awful ha. I'm guessing some of these are dupes too? let me know in the comments below.
The first palette we have is called PARIS, I think I've seen everyone say this is the dupe for Stilla? but I could be wrong. These colours are so gorgeous and very pigmented with only 2 swipes. I love that there's a mixture of colours from, sparkly gold to browns and to nudes. These colours are an everyday wear, but also great for going out in the evening too.

This palette is called WEST END GIRLS, when I first saw these colours I was bit like, can I pull these off?  but once I swatched them I was like wow they are so pretty. This palette is perfect for a night out. The gold glittery colour will be getting used for Christmas for sure :D 

So there we have the two new amazing palettes, there's such a different range of colours, I definitely can't pick a favourite between the two, they are all so pigmented and I can't believe you can get them for £3.99. I definitely recommend these and I'm very glad they are now part of my collection.

Let me know what you think of these palettes? Will you be picking any up?

Phil Smith Big It Up Range

I have such long thick hair, its actually impossible to find products that will give my hair some volume, its always so dull and flat looking, every girl loves bit of bounce to their hair. I have the Shampoo and Conditioner costing £3.50, I know that's cheap but it actually gave my hair a bit of volume, it wasn't a massive difference but I could see a little bounce to my hair and the roots also, which I never thought would happen, ever, it didn't just give me just volume, my hair now feels very clean and refreshed, almost like it cleansed my whole hair, and the conditioner has made my hair very soft and easy to brush through, my hair gets very notty if I dont use the right conditioner.  One thing I'm not a fan of is the smell, its very strong and sometimes it puts you off wanting to put it onto your hair, but other than that they are both great products and not bad considering the price, ill definitely  continue using them. Oh I cannot forget the bright yellow packaging, how cool is it? :)

Have you tried anything from Phil Smiths Range?

Lil Lash Review/update #2

About 3 months ago I received this lash and brow set from Lil lash, if you would like to check out my review, and know more about the two products I will link the page HERE. Your meant to apply the lash serum and brow serum overnight for 3 months as thats when your meant to see results, I did forget now and then woops, but I did manage to keep up with it. Im super impressed with these two products, the lash serum works wonder on my lashes, as I have short lashes. I've noticed a massive difference and they have grown quite abit. When I apply mascara they look longer than usual and they have never been like that in my life. 
I made sure to take a Before and After picture so you can hopefully see a difference, Im really sorry about the lighting I know its terrible but 3 months ago the lighting was awful and dark and now its bright and sunny, so ull have to ignore it lol. I hope you can see a difference between the lashes because I sure can, I'm definitely going to carry on doing it hoping they will get even longer, because who doesn't like short lashes, I sure don't.
