Going out next weekend, this would be perfect.   £25
3. Benefit Hervana
The box is so pretty and it just looks so lovely! £23.50
4. Sleek Brow Kit  - Superdrug
Need a nice brow kit, been using a Primark one for ages now! £6.99

I. Need. This. In. My. Life.  £14
6. Patterned Jeans - River Island
Seen these everywhere, they're so pretty! £40

Product Rave - Natural Collection

Natural Collection moisture shine lipsticks have become a bit of a staple product for me recently. I got paid yesterday, but this month instead of splurging like I did last month, I was sensible and got some cheaper (but still lovely) goodies, including three of these lipsticks. Natural Collection have an offer on at the moment, 3 for £5, so I got three! There's also a deal where if you spend £5 or over you get a £5 No7 voucher, so I got that too, which was nice. So, these lipsticks are usually £1.99 each.
They're definitely not the most professional, amazing lipsticks, but they're moisturizing, creamy and come in lovely colors. When applied properly, using a lip liner and/or sealing, these lipsticks could last a lot longer than when used alone. The good thing about these is they're versatile, you could add a subtle wash of color, or go all out. I love them!

I got colors, Sweet Pea, Biscuit and Berry Sorbet

Swatches in the same order as above. You can see they have a shiny finish.
Anyway, thanks for reading, sorry I haven't updated in a while, been having a busy time at home recently, moving around a lot.
Please comment what you think, and if you've tried these lipsticks!

My GlossyBox Arrived!

So it arrived, delivery was much faster than I thought that it would be. This is my first beautybox of any kind, and I was very excited. It was so well packaged, looked so professional, and I felt really special having it sent to me, with all the lovely products inside!
Look at it! It's pink and pretty!
Inside, with a lovely little valentines message from GlossyBox.
Oooh so exciting! I got, from left to right: Murad skin perfecting primer, Davine cleansing nectar, Davine moisturizing balm, Eyeko skinny eyeliner in powder pink and FAB body wash. It also came with a little GlossyBox stick-of-rock candy piece, which was really cute and yummy!
So far, I've been using the primer most days, it was coloured just like foundation which really surprised me, but it has a much thinner feel than foundation. It goes on skin fine, and it doesn't look dark on my pale skin. Not really noticed a massive difference in redness, pore size etc but will update any changes.

I haven't used either of the Davine's stuff yet as I've been staying at my Boyfriends all week for valentines and I didn't bring them with me, but I am excited to try the moisturizing balm especially.
I was a little disappointed to get the skinny eyeliner in powder pink, as I already have Benefit Eyebright, which is very similar to the colour of the Eyeko pencil and a little better if I'm honest. I've heard a lot of negative stuff about Eyeko doubling their prices and changing their packaging. I used to be a fan of their old style nail polishes, which aren't available anymore. Not all that impressed with the eyeliner, it has a long handle which will be handy if I get to use the pencil down to the last tiny nub, but to be honest I don't really think I'll be using it much. Would have loved to recieve a much brighter colour, but was still quite exciting to try something new.
I haven't actually used the FAB body wash either, but I love the packaging and am excited to try it out once I get back home.
Anyway, thanks for reading, let me know what you guys thought of your GlossyBox's or any other beauty boxes.

I was in Boots about a week ago, getting a few bits and bobs, mainly hairdye in attempts to save the disaster that is my hair colour. (I'll do a post about it sooon) I was casually walking past the eyelashes when something caught my eye. The Katy Perry lashes! I was a little bit excited, as they were in shops sooner than I'd read they were going to be. They only had two of the styles, and I bought 'Sweetie Pie', because I liked them the best.

Look how pretty they are! I think they were £5.95, which isn't the cheapest of lashes, but not completely unreasonable. I thought it was also quite sweet when I found a little 'Sweetie Pie' sticker inside the box. I don't really know where I'm going to put it, but it's a nice touch.
They look lovely on, and quite natural looking, which I like!
They just look lovely and even and frame my eyes nicely.

These would be fine for wearing everyday, or at night.
Now all I need to decide is which I'm going to get next...
Thanks for reading, please comment what you thought of them!
