Good evening friends,
I’ve had this sat in my drafts for a while, and keep on forgetting to actually finish this post.
June’s Glossybox had me excited, this happens few and far between as I’ve found Glossybox has lost its charm, and am only signed up for one more box of my year sentance/subscription.
Any who, June’s theme was set around world of beauty.
ModelCo Liquid Metal Eyeshadow Shade Champagne RRP £15
We recieved a similar liquid shadow last December, but this liquid shadow is a staple for every make up bag.
A quick and easy glamorous look with one swoop. With buildable layering, perfect for a top up when you’re on the go.
Huda beauty Life Liner – Very Vanta RRP £18
If you know me, or actually, if you’ve ever seen a handful of pictures of me, you’ll know I love eyeliner. A smokey smudg of soft liner or a cat eye, it’s been my go to for years.
A dual eyeline is a must have, but funnily enough I’ve never managed to find one that is just right.
Both products applied exactly as intended and were long lasting.
This all sounds great doesn’t it?
Before I explain, I’ll introduce the next product.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company – Make up Removing Cloths (pack of 2) RRP £7.99
First things first. Animal print again? Why Glossybox?
Make up Removing cloths that will wipe away all traces without any soap,oils, remover? No way.
Of course I was sceptical but intrigued, but these bad boy’s proved me wrong! Running the cloth under warm water, my foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick and even mascara wiped off without having to scrub my skin too hard, or leaving me with panda eye.
The Huda liquid liner on the other hand. Well, she had other ideas.
In the above photo, all other make up and mascara had been removed but the liquid liner would not budge, not a smudge.
I scrubbed my eyelides for as long as I could bare.
I poured a little make up remover on a cotton pad. Nothing.
Third times a charm.
Eventually the remainder of the liner came off with a wet wipe. My eyelids felt violated! If you want a 48 hour eyeliner, then this ones for you!
Lasplash Cosmetics – Brush set RRP £15
I’m not 100% sure how often you should throw away make up brushes, even though I regularly clean mine, I normally dont own a set for more than 18months. Is that just me or do others get a little grossed out by them?
I wouldnt think a set from a subscription box would be that great, but these brushes are pretty impressive.
These setting and defining eye shadow brush were dense but soft enough for the perfect application.
Beautaniq Beauty – Guardian Angel Eye Mask RRP £5
My skin is awful at the moment. I have no idea if its hormones, the lack of sun and possibly stress? But I am adoring any and all skin care
These eye masks didnt stick very well, they stayed on for around 5 minutes, all whilst I sat still, trying my best to keep my face still.
Once peeling these off, my skin felt a little tacky but with no difference. How disappointing.
Overall, air am happy with the box. I have mixed feeling regarding the Huda beauty liner, and am pleasantly surprised with the make up remover cloths.
Have you tried any of these products before? And what did you think of them?
