Glossy Box May 2012 - 1st Birthday/Anniversary

Oooo how exciting new Glossy Box, let's get it open and see what's inside.....

 The suspense is killing me.....
 Nice box as usual
 Lovely tissue paper, this is gonna be a good 'un, I can tell
 100% human hair eye lashes!  WTF!! I wouldn't even wear my own hair as lashes let alone hair that once belonged to someone else who was probably paid pennies for it, I can't think of anything more wrong!  FAIL.
 Not a clue what this is, no English wording on it at all, according to the info sheet it's either face cream or body milk.  10ml - woop de doo!

Uniqone All In One Hair Treatment 9ml
 Glossy Box compact mirror 
 Noble Isle bath & shower gel, 75 ml, yep smells nice & fresh
 2 purfume samples - wow Glossy Box you're really spoiling us now!  The first one Si Lolita smells OK, the second one L'Eau en Blanc, more like Blankety Blank, completely disappeared after 15 seconds
And a pink balloon for you to blow up and post a photo of you & it on Glossy Box's website, really?

This must be the worst Glossy Box I've ever had, Glossy Box?  Shoddy Box more like!  Hope you enjoyed yours x

OPI Rosy Reflection vs Nails Inc New Bond Street

I find I always buy the same colours and then realise I already have one exactly the same or similar!  Here's my latest discovery, OPI Rosy Reflection and Nails Inc New Bond Street.  From the bottle OPI looks sparklier, but on the nail they look exactly the same, both applied the same, absolutely no difference what so ever.  Gorgeously sparkly in the sunshine - hooruh!

Can you see any difference?

Review for Raven Cosmetics - Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner - Ocean

Raven Cosmetics have kindly sent me for review a Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Eye Definer called Ocean, which is a light blue shimmer eyeliner.  I love Rimmel cosmetics, I've grown up with them and it is of course a British brand.
Now check this out, it has it's own removable sharpener in the base, how natty is that!

I usually, or should I say always, wear black eyeliner, and as I have green eyes I didn't think this colour would suite me, well I was wrong, I think it looks jolly nice and I'll enjoy wearing this colour.  It's not as heavy as black and will be great in the summer.  My photos show one eye made up with the Rimmel eyeliner and one without any make-up.  The eyeliner glided on completely effortlessly and hasn't smudged or creased on my eyes - hooruh!

Now, here's the good bit, this is available at Raven Cosmetics online shop for......99p!  And it's not the only product they have for 99p, they also have lip glosses, lip sticks, eyeshadows, mascaras, blushers & brushes, concealers and lots more, go check it out, great bargains and fantastic value.  You'll also receive a 15% discount, yep, that's right 15% discount on your 99p item and on your whole order!  AND if you 'like' them on Facebook you'll received a Nails Inc mini Nail polish totally FREE!  UK & International shipping available.
