Birchbox and Glossybox – August 2014

Due to my lack of self  restraint I have a bit of an obsession with Beauty Boxes! I have subscribed to Birchbox  and Glossybox for the past 6 months now and have just recently subscribed to Love Me Beauty and YouBeauty Box! (Click here for my review of Love Me Beauty). I wanted to try all of them and then decide which I would like to keep…..the only problem now is choosing between them!! I decided to do a joint post for Birchbox and Glossybox this month to try to change things up. I also thought it would be better to just show you what I got in each box and then if I like a product I will blog about it separately. So here goes… Birchbox and Glossybox – August 2014.

Love Me Beauty Box – August 2014

My name is Faye and I am a Beauty Box addict! There I said it, the first step is admitting your problem. I love the excitement of tearing open my Beauty Box to see if it’s a good one! The down fall to this is when its a bad one…… So I don’t recognise any of the brands and I will never use this pot of gloop that resembles lip gloss. Dont get me wrong I love to try new things but most end up at the bottom of my draw rattling around or worse exploding a lava of moisturiser all over everything! I was watching a video on Miss Budget Beauty’s YouTube channel and she mentioned Love Me Beauty. I decided to give it a go and quickly realised me and Love Me Beauty were going to get on!

Bobbi Brown Make Up

The title sounds simple but that is sort of the theme with Bobbi Brown. I was wondering through town after a deflated trip to Harvey Nichols to buy Nars Sheer Glow Foundation only to get to the counter and be told they didn’t have my shade! : ( The third.. THIRD store to not have it. So like a scene in a sad romcom I was kicking through puddles and walking slowly with Ed Sheeran singing me a sad song through my ipod. The I saw it, through the crowd….Debenhams! The warm lights and smiling sales women were calling me and I couldn’t face another day of no foundation! 30 minutes later I skipped out of Debenhams, spent up but happy. Here is what I picked up…

Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask

I have mentioned in a couple of posts about how unreliable my skin can be when it comes to blemishes. But I feel I am slowly but surely finding ways to get it under control. I’ve never been a massive fan of face masks in the past. It’s nothing against face masks I just get really bored sitting waiting for the 15 minutes to be up, when I can remove the crumbling mess from my face. I spotted Soap & Glory No Clogs Allowed Face Mask and after a quick scan of the box I learnt it was a self heating, deep pore detox mask! hhmmm so I like self heating masks, I do have black heads and I do need to detox…..SOLD… in the basket it went.

Battle of the Palettes

Being an old soul before my time I find my attendance at bars and night clubs is on the decline these days. I find it difficult to use every colour in my eye shadow palette! Especially those with a more edgy look in mind. I tend to gravitate towards those with more subtle tones that I can mix together for a natural look for my office job but I can also use to create a jazzy (yes I used the word jazzy) evening look. So here are my two favorite palettes that give me both without much fuss and without the inevitable horrid shade no one will touch that goes unused in the pan! I can honestly say I love all these colours and I am now on my second round of palette for both brands! So here goes…..

March Favourites

The early months of the year seem to have passed by in a blur! I feel like I have only just recovered from Winter, I’ve stuck my toe out the door into the new year air and Spring is very much here. I am looking out of my window pondering my garden and the new life that seems to be appearing every day…..trees, flowers, birds…even the odd bubble bee has made the brave decision to venture out! It seems Spring is a time for new beginnings, out with the old and in with the new. I want to wrap winter up and save it for next year along with all the comforts that come with it, baths, soup, candles and scarfs. So time to pull out the sandals, dust off the sunglasses and hope and pray for the first glimpse of sun on the horizon. With that brings me to the reason for this post! Its time for my March favourites and the discovery of some new products but also my rediscovery of old favourites :)

Maybelline Brow Drama

I am a creature of habit and tend to go with tried and tested routines. I will stick to a product I like and buy it again and again. BUT….. I have tried to be bolder and the last few shopping splurges have included some new and never before tried (by me anyway). Since my teens I have always loved bold eyebrows and would always turn to powders to achieve this look. I felt like times were changing and maybe a more subtle brow would look good. So I purchased some things that caught my eye….
