I’ve grown to love receiving this gorgeous little box every month and i know i’m not the only one.
It’s like a cute little gift to myself.
This month’s box is in collaboration with red magazine and from last month’s sneak peek i knew that we would be getting the too faced better than sex mascara.
Other contents included:
- Vitamaques hydro sheet mask.
- Rodial’s smokey eye pen.
- GOSH lip marker.
- too faced’s better than sex waterproof mascara.
- Revlon’s gel topcoat.
- Bonus item – the body shops Himalayan charcoal mask.
One of the first items i tried was the charcoal mask from the body shop,i did have high hopes for it from reading all the reviews.
Incase you’ve been living under a rock,nearly every influential beauty blogger has already used and reviewed the body shops multi-masking kit.This was part of that collection so it was nice to be able to try-before-you-buy.
It reminded me very much of the mudmasky clay mask from the august box,which in my eyes is overpriced at £63.It had bits of seaweed in it and had that noticeable tingle when applied,thankfully it’s only a 5-10 minute mask.I didn’t get on with this at all,it felt nice but left my pores clogged and i broke out almost immediately after,very disappointing.
The hydro sheet mask was exactly like the starskin’s eye masks I received in my first glossybox,the texture is something i don’t think I’ll ever get use to (Cringe).
My face did feel a bit more plump the next day,it was nice…
I’m not a winged eyeliner kinda girl…
I have big and somewhat hooded eyes so if i even attempted to create a wing,it would definitely be a smudgy disaster!
So as far as the smokey eye pen goes it was nice to use in my waterline and lasted all day.I have to admit I wasn’t filled with excitement when i saw the GOSH lip marker and it seems with good reason.
I swatched it on my arm for this photo first and it was so stubborn to remove,i thought it would be fab on my lips.It applied nicely but no matter how many times i went over the same patchy parts it wouldn’t build up and seemed to fade by the minute.
Another disappointment but i don’t mind,i love trying new products i wouldn’t normally discover,good or bad…Too faced’s better than sex mascara has had some mixed reviews,some like it and some don’t.
I like it,a lot!
It separates my lashes nicely with no clumping,the wand is a gorgeous hourglass shape which gave me full and thick lashes.It’s giving my icona mascara a run for its money.
Lastly Revlon’s gel topcoat,i haven’t tested this out yet but if you stay up to date with my posts in the next few days it’ll be featured in with my Nail of the week series.
What did you think of this month’s box,leave a comment and let me know.
