Glossybox October Review

The Glossybox for October was absolutely beautiful! I love every single product and I’ve added all of them to my daily make-up.

The Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid is a dream product. I suffer really badly with sore lips especially at this time of year and I’ve tried so many different products even medicated products and they all work for a bit but there’s always a hang up. Such as, the ones that work leave a horrid taste in my mouth or I have white lips!

ENTER LANOLIPS! I’ve been applying this everyday and I’m loving it. It smells like lemon sherbet, it is a nice consistency, quite thick which makes it like a balm in a tube. It has a lovely glossy finish which means it’s a lovely touch to a daily make-up look. It retails for  £8.99 in boots and I will definitely be re-purchasing it’s the perfect size to throw in your handbag.

Now, I was introduced to beauty blenders at the beginning of this year and I haven’t looked back, they are the perfect friend that everyone who wants a flawless foundation application needs. This Nicka K Airbrush Blending Sponge is no different, when someone said ‘use a sponge to apply your foundation’ it reminded me of when I first started wearing make-up and I had this sponge I’d used to ages, it was so dirty and falling apart, gross I know but I was young! But they’ve developed so much since then, I blaaaady love it. These sponges retail for £6.50 and I would repurchase if I needed to but I will be keeping it with my daily make-up then washing it and continuing to use it as I do my Pixiwoo sponge.

I’m not a big fan of pink cheekies, I’m more of a highlighter and bronzer gal! BUT, this cheeky Jelly Pong Pong Play Paint duo is for lips and cheeks. You literally need a pin prick amount of this product to cover your cheeks or lips and it’s such a gorgeous shade of pink. It would work beautifully to pair in your lips and cheeks but I just used it on the lips. The staying power is wonderful and it didn’t dry out my lips (LITTLE TIP: Apply your lanolins on top of this lip paint for a glossy overcoat and extra hydration)

I’m in love with this product it’s giving me a little summerly pink pick me up on these chilly autumn days. This lip and cheek paint retails for £8.95 which I would definitely repurchase at, however, a little goes a LONG way where pong pong is concerned so I don’t think i’ll need to for a long time. Therefore, I conclude that this is a definite investment purchase.

Oh British seasons, this time of year is always tricky for me, if you are a dry skin sufferer like myself you will know that finding a lovely hydrating moisturiser is tough! My skin becomes immune to every cream overtime and it just dries through it, VERY frustrating VERY expensive. I’m yet to see if my skin will dry through this Talika Photo-Hydra Day moisturiser so I will update you on that as and when but at the moment it’s acting as a beautiful base for my foundation which is preventing any dry patches from peeking through and ruining my foundation finish. The only thing I’m not keen on for this product is it’s consistency, I prefer a thicker cream but that is just personal preference. This product retails for £24.85 and this size is supposedly full size and to be honest, as much as I like this product I don’t think I would purchase this size for that price. That being said, if it stands the test of time, and winter, I may change my mind.

Well well well what do we have here a nifty little pencil that actually has THREE uses for me, yes, three. I am really self conscious of my eye area be that the under eye bags or the fact I can never get them to look ‘awake’ I’ve tried a lot of techniques over the last couple of years and failed mostly, I now apply a bit of highlighter to the inner corners of my eyes, I didn’t think it made much o a difference but I did it anyway. I tried to line my lower water line with a white eye pencil and I felt it was too harsh and didn’t look right at all. Then I tried this So Susan Haute Light Highlighting Pencil in my water line and it was the perfect shade, it widened my eyes and instantly made it look like I even had a little sparkle, dare I say. Onto my second use for this product, highlighting under my brows- b.e.a.utiful. Lastly, for now, I used it on my lids applying it all over my lid and adding to it ‘Bootycall’ from my NAKED 2 palette, they compliment each other so beautifully for a fresh faced daily look. It works really well with the recent boom in strobing I have been testing some new highlighter so make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss my reviews on them! Glossy told me this product retails for £15 but I found it on the website for £14.95 so there you go, A DISCOUNT, don’t say  never give you anything 😉
