November 2014 Glossybox

Hi Everyone, hope that you are all trying to enjoy what is left of the weekend. As I was preparing for Monday morning; bed time shower, matching pyjamas and a cup of camomile it dawned on me that I am STILL yet to tell you all about my November Glossybox and it is now JANUARY! Shame on me! Sorry about the delay, so I will get to it promptly.

Well November was the first month that I have received in a plain pink box (normally they are in exciting boxes). I was a little disappointed, but the products inside definitely made up for it.

Firstly I received a LOLLIPOPS MAKE UP eye pencil in black. The packaging is really up my street, it is pink, with leopard print. What more could you ask for?! It applies really really easily and lasts really well throughout the day. It fades from the water line, but you would be extremely lucky to find an eye pencil that doesn’t, but it lasts on your lid for hours. It doesn’t smudge and leave that horrible smudge mark under your bottom lid that you sometimes find around lunch time. It's really pigmented and looks great, really good when doing a smoky eye. It has a turning base so you can push the pencil up when it runs out so no need to sharpen. Perfect! It contains Vitamin E with anti-ageing and anti-radical action. It sells for 14 Euros on In my Glossybox I received a full size product which is fabulous and for 14 Euros I think it’s a steal!

I also received a Burt’s Bees Lip Shine in Blush, another full sized product – Bonus! It is 100% natural which I love and is enriched with moisturising Apricot Wax. Now this is a very nice colour, very subtle and not to over-powering, you could easily wear it throughout the day or over a matte lipstick, it’s extremely glossy and so makes your lips look fuller without the horrendous feeling of a plumper by just using a super shine. It smells divine, really sweet fruity smell, which is always wanted in a lip gloss. It’s super easy to apply, even without a mirror, but because this product is extremely glossy and shiny, it means that it is really really sticky. A big gust of wind and your hair and lippy is screwed. Definitely not to be worn in extreme weather conditions! Stick to pubs and clubs! It sells for £6.99 at

Now onto the H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment, this sample was only 8ml, extremely small – however you only need a little amount to cover your whole face. Now this a gel, which was a little strange for me, it felt a lot like a peel off face mask. After cleansing apply a small amount and massage into skin. It is oil free and if kept in the fridge it can be used as a refreshing cooling mask. I wasn’t overly keen on applying this, it feels sticky when you apply it to your skins and doesn’t massage in overly well. It is totally scentless which also seemed a little odd, but WOW it really works. It leaves skin feeling really soft and totally fresh, like every single bit of makeup has disappeared and the weird thing is, once it dries the stickiness completely disappears too and it makes skin look really refreshed. A 50ml bottle is £27.50 from

The MONU Skincare Soothing Hawaii Facial Oil was a 30ml bottle. It’s a warming facial oil containing Cardamom, Sandalwood and Lavender, it basically smells like a candle. It smells amazing! Like a soothing, calming, comforting scent. After cleansing and toning you apply a small amount to the skin and massage in gentle upwards movements. It feels like an at home facial. Would totally recommend to anyone! My favourite product in this month’s box! It leaves skin feeling fantastic and leaves you feeling totally relaxed. Definitely one to avoid if you have oily skin, but if you have dry, normal or combination skin then try this out for a lovely bed time facial. 100ml sells for £26 at

(Excuse my grown out acrylics in these photos)

And last but not least the 2True Pro Sparkles Glitter Nail Polish. This is essentially a pot of glitter that you can sprinkle on to nails to give a really sparkly finish. Mine was in gold and was a full sized sample. I painted my nails with gold nail varnish (In the photo I have used the Nails Inc Magnetic Polish in Big Ben, however I have not used the magnet on it) I then allowed this to dry. Then after placing my hand over a sheet of paper (to collect excess) I painted my nails with a clear varnish, while this was still wet I sprinkled the 2True Pro Sparkles Glitter all over my nails, I let them dry then wiped off the excess glitter, once all the excess glitter had been removed I went over it with the clear polish again to avoid it chipping off. This gives a really glittery effect and I love it, really good party nails! It lasted for ages and I had a lot of compliments about my nails, I loved them. However it wasn’t so easy to remove. This is sold at Superdrug for £4 and comes in a variety of colours.

Sorry for the delay and I'll be sure to get up to date with my Glossyboxes soon
