My Little Box – August 2015

My Little Box – August 2015

Today I have another My Little Box review for you, this one is for the August box and for once it’s on time! I received the August box last week and in my opinion it was another good one! The theme was My Little Gypset Box… I’d never heard of the word ‘gypset’ but according to the dictionary it relates to a ‘modern nomadic lifestyle’ and the products inside this month’s box are all geared around an easy lifestyle with a bohemian twist. If you’ve never heard of My Little Box it’s a quirky monthly beauty box that offers something a bit different, including their own range of make-up ‘My Little Beauty’, a proper readable mini magazine in each box, plus exciting little non-beauty extras – past examples have included jewellery, stationery and T-shirts. So, what was inside My Little Gypset Box in August….? I’ll start with the beauty products as these were my favourite items inside August’s box. There was a mini Korres Basil Lemon Body Milk, this is a...

Emite – Professional Eyelash Curler

Emite – Professional Eyelash Curler

I have to admit that I have never tended to use eyelash curlers on a regular basis as I have never really seen much benefit from them, I prefer to use mascara to define and curl my lashes. This Professional Eyelash Curler arrived in my August Glossybox and I had already read some good reviews of it, so I was looking forward to trying it out. The curler has been designed so that it doesn’t touch your make-up base whilst you are using it, and it came with 3 spare red pads which is really great – this tool should last me a very long time. I think the design and the colours of this tool make it look really stylish too. I do find that this Professional Eyelash Curler is easy to use, but occasionally the edges do touch my eye make-up whilst I am using it. Also, it is made of metal so it does feel very cold when it touches your skin. The red band is...

Jelly Pong Pong – 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow in Black

Jelly Pong Pong – 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow in Black

I received this 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow in black from Jelly Pong Pong in my August Glossybox. My first impressions were mixed – the pencil was a bit scratched despite being in wrapped in a protective plastic, and I would have thought that most people will already have a black eyeliner in their make-up kit and would have preferred if this pencil had come in a different colour. However, I do like multi-tasking products and this pencil doubles up as both an eyeliner and a shadow. The Jelly Pong Pong pencil contains beeswax and has a creamy texture which applies fairly easily in one stroke if you are using it as an eyeliner. The point is rather thick though so it is better suited to thick smudgy sultry eyeliner looks than ones which require a precise thin line. The swatch image below shows the 2-in-1 Eyeliner applied on the left in one stroke, and then smudged with a cotton bud on the right to give more of an eyeshadow...

Glossybox – August 2013

Glossybox – August 2013

My August Glossybox arrived a couple of days ago. I’m sorry to say that the jury is still out on this one for me – the theme is ‘High Flyers’, and it’s a collection of products for the ‘girl on the go’ all sized at under 100ml so they can be stored in your hand luggage. I’m not too impressed at first glance, but my opinions may change once I have actually started testing out the products. The first item is a full-sized 15ml Tresemme Keratin Smooth 60 Second Treatment Shot which retails at £1.49. I have read good things about this treatment and while Tresemme isn’t a brand I would normally choose I am looking forward to trying this out. This Treatment Shot aims to smooth and hydrate the hair so in terms of the ‘High Flyers’ theme I would suggest this is probably a product that you would use BEFORE going on holiday, rather than taking it with you, although you may decide to use it whilst on...
