January Glossybox: It's Arrived!

The valentine's glossybox has finally arrived!! I love the hot pink limited edition packaging! 
But I have to be honest I was a little disappointed and I'm not sure why... as I would be more than happy with this box any month... I think it is because it was hyped up soo much as a special box, so maybe my expectations were far too high?

So what's inside?...
Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Plum - £9.50
Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream - £48 / 50ml
Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream - £46.50 / 50ml
FAB Gentle Body Wash - £10 / 226.8g
Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer in Dewy Finish - £29 / 30ml
And a cute Glossybox sweet

Reviews coming soon!

What do you think of the January Glossybox?

January Blues?

Affordable Make-up Brushes

I love this Models Own Make-up brush set for £10, the orange slanted blusher brush was bought separately but I'm not sure how much it was.

I got this UBU No.10 powder brush from ASDA for £5, I admit I was attracted to it for the pink brush!
Rachel got this set free from her work, but she loves the brushes, they are super soft and a high quality, I couldn't find this set online but they normally range from £14.99 - £19.99.

Need for Neon

Neon colours are going to be huge this Spring/Summer so I have been on a quest to find the perfect neon nail varnish.

These are all of the neon nail varnishes I already had or have bought but none of them have been quite right!
I also wanted to let you know that the Collection 2000 Hot Looks nail varnish in 30 Sherbet Lemons is the worst nail varnish I have ever used! It was really watery which mean't it took a few coats to get the right colour and the brush was far too big!

Love this colour by Ruby & Mille (RIP) is perfect for a more subtle neon look!

I will be getting this American Apparel Neon nail varnish on pay day!

Perfect Pastel

Bourjois Bronzer

Superdrug currently have all Bourjois make up on 3 for 2, I got this bronzer, an illuminating blusher and healthy mix foundation.
I know I'm a bit late to this as it's been reviewed a lot, normally I stay away from bronzers as I have pale skin, but I saw it on offer and thought I'd give it a try. I love this one and it's light enough to use in the winter. I've also used it as a neutral eyeshadow. I have been using this all the time! I love the chocolate bar packaging!

January Glossybox

The January Glossybox is apparently a special Glossybox for Valentines Day, so it won't be getting dispatched until 27th January. I'm really looking forward to seeing whether it actually is a special box... but would have been nice to know earlier that we were being invoiced on a later date rather than the day it was actually invoiced, and that it probably won't be arriving until February it would have saved me a lot of disappointment of rushing home after work to see if it had arrived yet! Nothing better than getting a surprise parcel of beauty goodies.

We found this amazing illustration whilst looking for Paul and Joe make up pictures!

Paul and Joe Beaute - Cat Spring Range

AMAZING!! Love Paul and Joe packaging, but this is a new level! The new top hat cat lipstick is adorable couldn't bear to use it though... we are dying to try this brand. Do you use it? what do you think?

You might not be able to tell yet but we are obsessed with cats!

New look Company Magazine

Have you seen the new look Company magazine? it is a special £1 price for their re-design.
I normally wouldn't buy company, i think it always seemed aimed at older women, but new magazine caught my eye and I really liked it. It is more focused on street style and on trend makeup looks, I will definitely be getting it again next month!

Mavala Double Lash 10ml

 I have been dying to try a lash serum for ages as I am obsessed with lashes, and I found this on and it had some really good reviews, it was in the winter sale for £7.49 with free postage and packaging, I think normal price is around £8.99.
Mavala say that Double Lash is a nutritive treatment that lengthens and strengthens lashes, helps stimulate faster growth and protects them, you should apply it on clean lashes at night, and they claim you will see results in 30 days, so it will give it a try for a month and let you know if it actually works!

Perfect Nude Lipstick from Topshop

I have found the perfect nude lipstick, I had been searching for ages for the right colour as the nude colours are too pale and the pink shades are too pinky for me... if that makes sense! I got this for Christmas from Rachel and I love it, it is the perfect shade for me and I love the tortois shell style packaging.

New Year New Hair??

I have always pretty much had the same hair style (long very dark brown messy slightly wavy) but at the minute I seem to be obsessing over blunt cut just below shoulder length hair.... should I go for it? It may not seem that drastic but to me its a huge change, I'm a hair wimp. Also dip dyed/ ombre hair is it a keeper for 2012?... it has been huge for the past two years (so big even barbie got involved, with thanks to Bleach London) but as I'm such a wimp I never went for it but I'm really considering it now, but is it too late?? have all the d-list celebrities killed this look? aghh I just don't know.........

Black Nikon Coolpix Camera only £49.99,default,pd.html

I am so excited I have just bought a new camera and wanted to share the bargain!
It is currently £49.97 on ASDA Direct, and there is a competition to win a walk in part on Hollyoaks, although not the reason I bought it. But i think the fact it has a Hollyoaks competition has meant it is on offer as it is still £69 in the ASDA store and with other retailers.
I ordered it to be picked up in store so didn't have to pay a delivery charge!

Simple face wipes at Lidl for £1.49!

Picture from

I found this bargain at the Lidl near where I work, simple face wipes for only £1.49 (they are normally £2.99) so of course I had to buy 3 packets!

Yorkshire Pole!

This is what my boyfriend ordered when we went out for Sunday dinner, I've never seen anything like it in my life!!

Fashionista make up range at Superdrug

Superdrug have recently introduced this make up range in their larger stores, I have seen reviews of this range before and was really looking forward to trying it out. The range offers eyeshadow and blushers that you can buy separately or you can mix and match 4 separates to make your own customized compact. You simply pop out the colour and you can add it to the compact easily, you can also pop the colours back out of the compact and put them back in their solo packaging if you want to change things around.
The current offer at Superdrug is that you get 4 for 3, and when you get 4 solos you get a compact free! The eyeshadows and blushers are £4 each and to buy the compact separately is £5.


Below are the eyeshadows that I bought, the colours haven't come out too well in the photo!

Colours L-R:
Sultry Shade 30
Gold Rush Shade 4
Embellished Shade 35
Amber Glow Shade 40

I love these colours, embellished is showing up as a dark blue colour but it's actually a metallic purple.

Have you tried the Fashionista range yet?
