Stars and Stripes Glossybox July 2014

Glossybox July 2014

I have returned from hibernation! There are plenty of reasons why I took a little break from blogging and left HBFL in the very capable hands of Amie for a few weeks, but I shan’t go into them now for there are shiny treats inside this pretty stars and stripes box and playing with make-up is always more fun than waxing lyrical about mushy feelings! This is an awesome box with four full size products and a generous 15ml sample,…

Love me Beauty June1

  I’ve been watching the front door like a hawk ever since I saw this months beauty boxes showing up on my Twitter and Instagram feed and the first to make an appearance was this amazing selection from Love Me Beauty! Unlike other subscription boxes where you get sent a random selection, Love Me Beauty allows you to pick the exact box you want from three menus (though individual shades can still vary!) This month I chose edition 1 and I…

Glossybox May 2014 - Summer Beauty Edit With Superdrug

  Glossybox have been massive teases this month, dropping loads of hints about their upcoming collaboration (we all guessed it would be Superdrug though, right?) but boy was all the suspense worth it! This is hands down my best box ever with a whopping five full sized items and two samples! I’ll use absolutely everything and can honestly say there’s nothing I would change.   Max Factor Facefinity All Day Primer This alone is worth more than the cost of…

Gem actually received her Glossybox yesterday, but mine ended up at the post office instead since I’d spent the morning at the gym and there was no one to open the door to the postman. On collecting it today though, I’m pretty pleased with the contents – even if I did sneak a peek at Gem’s yesterday. Whats in the box? Emite Make Up – Lip Brush – L312 (£17) I’ve been thinking of buying a high end lip brush…

Birchbox April 2014 Review

Birchbox April 2014 Review

I’m sure the courier who delivers my beauty boxes thinks I’m absolutely mad because I squeal with delight every single time! I have to say I’m really impressed with this month’s Birchbox on every factor except one – the new delivery box! The outer box was taped shut and I scored the box beneath in my excitement to find the treasure inside! I know it’s only a tiny thing but the usual boxes were just fine! Anyway, tiny side-issue nitpicking aside,…

Birchbox March 2014 Review

  March already? Phew where did winter go? Who cares, the sun is shining and my Birchbox arrived this morning! This month’s box is a collaboration with Lulu Guinness and comes in the usual Birchbox bag-within-a-box with a chic black and white candy stripe outer card. Featuring five products and a “lifestyle extra” it’s pretty standard fare for Birchbox and there’s a great mix of all sorts inside!   Benefit Stay Don’t Stray  Just as my trusty ELF eye primer…

Glamour Beauty Edit 2014

      I tried so hard to resist this box, I really did, but last week I caved and I am SO glad I did! Welcome to the third Glamour Beauty Edit box by Latest in Beauty! I missed out of the first, but absolutely loved the second (reviewed here!) so really my resistance was futile. The box contains seven products worth £45 which is a little less bang for your buck than the previous boxes, but certainly nothing…

Debenhams Beauty Box Nail Varnish

February 4, 2014

I received one of Debenham’s Beauty Box sets this Christmas and was pleasantly surprised at the contents – of which came 8 beautiful nail varnish’s. Now Debenham’s isn’t really the sort of store that I think of when it comes to nail varnish, in terms of it’s own brand stuff, but the colours from this box are absolutely gorgeous! The first two here are my favourite – this is two coats and the pigment’s are just superb. The purple is…

Glossybox January 2014

  It seems like only yesterday I was oooing and aaaahing over December’s Glossybox, and already here is the first box of 2014! The first thing of note is that the box itself is bigger and well…glossier! This months theme is “Back to Basics” and contains five products, only one (almost sort of two!) of which is full size.   I have to say I wasn’t all that excited upon first impressions, the lack of a make-up item and the…
