Glossybox | May 2016


 
It's Glossybox time woohoo!
 
Now I know this May Glossybox post is very late (it's nearly June!!) has been such a busy month because I've had my 21st, I've been on holiday and it's just been really hectic! I've just had no time at all lol. But finally I've had time to put together this post!

Here's what I got in my May Glossybox - also can I point out how awesome the design is, I got the New York scene! :)



Revlon Super Length Mascara, Full Size £9.99

I'm really glad I got this in my Glossybox because I love trying out new makeup. I have worn this several times and I really like it! I will do a review on this at some point! So if you're interested in seeing it, keep your eye out lol.

Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil SPF 15, Full Size £13.99


I love this stuff, it smells so amazing! I bought some tanning oil for my holiday and a couple of days later I get this in my Glossybox! I could've saved myself money by not buying the tanning oil and using this - if only my Glossybox turned up sooner lol. 
 
Bee Good Youth Enhancing Plump & Firm Moisturiser, Full Size £23.50


In all honesty I don't think I will use this. It plumps your face, and tbh my face is plump (fat) enough lol!
 
Absolute New York Velvet Lippie, Full Size £4.93
 
This lip cream is so smooth! I got given the colour XXX. Its a lovely nude colour and it smells amazing!!
 
 
Hairon Zero Crease Hair Tie, Full Size £3.99

These things are strange! They're like hairbands made out of a telephone cord. I don't really like these lol I prefer normal hair bands - a pack of 50 from Primark for a quid!
 
I also got a bag of popcorn!
 
This is one of my fave Glossyboxs that I have received so far :)
 
Like always, let me know if you receive a Glossybox each month, or if you have any other beauty subscriptions? :)
 
Thanks for reading,

Drugstore Orange Lipstick and Lip Gloss Combo | Topshop & L'Oreal


Hi guys,

I love a good orange lip, and I have found the perfect lipstick and lip gloss combo - both drugstore products!



  • Peach Sundae from Topshop is a gorgeous pastel orange/peach colour.                                     
  • Hold Me Close by L'Oreal is a light orange lip gloss with orange sparkles (one of my fave orange lip glosses!)

Top: Hold Me Close, L'Oreal
Bottom: Peach Sundae, Topshop
These products go perfectly with each other, to create a gorgeous peachy orange lip!

Let me know which is your favourite orange lipstick? Or if you don't wear orange, what other colour would you wear? :)

Barry M Coconut Infusion Gel Nail Paint | Nail Art & Review


Hi guys,
 
You must have all heard about Barry M's new Coconut Infusion range of nail varnishes - because these little beauties are alllll over the blogosphere (is that the right word?? Lol)  
 
I love coconut so as soon as I saw these in Boots I bought some - I hadn't even read any reviews lol I was convinced that being infused with coconut had to make them amazing; and I was right!! 
 
I bought two, Aloha and Sunkissed. They are both such gorgeous colours! I can not believe how good these nail varnishes are. You only need one coat, unlike some brands (high end brands) I've tried in the past that need two or three coats.
 
L-R, Sunkissed and Aloha
The nail varnishes are both so thick and glossy, and they just feel so smooth when applied. I haven't tried any other nail varnish with this texture - I really do love it!
 
I did a little nail art with these two colours! I think these two colours go well with each other.
 
 
Have you bought any of Barry M's Coconut Infused nail varnishes? If so, let me know which colours!
 
If you haven't bought any - go out and buy some now! You won't be disappointed :) lol!
 
Thanks for reading,

MAC Ravishing DUPE | Highstreet Brand Dupe


The other day I was trying to decide which lipstick to wear, and as I went through my collection I realised I had a few high end lipsticks that were the same colour as some drugstore/high street lipsticks I owned. So I decided to start doing dupe posts! I'm hoping these posts will be helpful for some of you :)


Mac Ravishing and Topshop Ohh La La are soo similar it's unreal! Topshop Ohh La La is more of a pinky colour than Ravishing but other than that they are super similar!

They are both a light peachy coral colour but like I said, Ohh La La is more on the coral side than peachy.


These colours are absolutely gorgeous! I would recommend them both :)

Let me know if you've found a dupe for any of these! Also let me know if you like dupe posts?
