Late Blog, Sorry!!
I had received this box a couple of weeks ago but have only just got round to having the time to try and review the products. I wasn’t hugely wowed by this months products however I am loving that they are giving full-sized items. I have been receiving Glossyboxes for a few months now and they make me feel like it’s Christmas everytime they arrive.
The first item I was really excited to use was the Nicka K Blending Sponge (£6.50). I have been wanting to purchase one of these for ages but have never got round to buying one. The sponge once damped with water is very easy to use and blends in my foundation flawlessly. When the sponge isn’t damp it is very hard and sucks up all the foundation so make sure to dampen before use.
So Susan Highlighting Pencil (£15.00) The main use that I have for this product is to highlight below my brow line. Another place I like using this pencil is either the inner corner of my eye or along my lower lash line. By doing this it makes my eyes look bigger and more awake. I haven’t used the pencil much as I prefer to go for a darker eye look but when I am going for a more natural look it is first in my makeup bag.
Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara (£17.95) I was quite disappointed by this product. For the price it is marketed at I expected the mascara to be a lot better. It hardly adds any length and appears to only make my lashes darker. However the packaging and look of this mascara is something I do really like.
Talika Photo-Hydra Day (£24.85) I hold my hands up to only having used this product once. The smell is awesome and it is a very light and soft liquid. After applying this product my face felt a little bit softer and would be good to use as a primer before applying makeup. I probably wouldn’t purchase the product again once it runs out as I feel that it doesn’t visibly do anything for me. Slightly over priced I think and I also think that there are cheaper products on the market that do a better job.
Lanolips 101 Ointment (£10.99) This is probably one of the only products I would buy again from this Glossybox. The balm is thick and it is a little struggle to get out of the tube, as you only need the smallest blob that problem is quickly forgotten. After applying onto my lips I always have some left over even after I have used a little. The balm makes my lips lovely and glossy, no lipstick is needed – they look great without. When I have cracked lips I apply the balm and those cracks are completely forgotten about. The only warning I would give to anyone using this product, is be careful when that wind is blowing and your hair flys onto your lips, when your hair is stuck on the balm its not a great look – Trust me!
Until next time,
I’ve worn hair extensions for a good 3/4 years now. I started with your basic clip ins, I then discovered Halo extensions, then nano loops, then micro loops but now I wear what I like to call a Micro Weave.
After being bored of micro loops and them knotting my hair after they had been taken out, I decided to try and find some new hair extensions. The only extensions I could find that I hadn’t tried were Easi Locks, which costed more than what I wanted to pay. I had a sudden rush of imagination, what if I combined micro loops with my clip ins. Instead of using clips I had the idea of using the micro loops. I’ve now been wearing my ‘Micro Weave’ for 3 months now. They are the best extensions I’ve worn, I can create the thickness I want, they are cheap to buy and easy to put in and take out if I wanted to.
I went down to my local hair extension shop (GiGi’s) they matched my hair colour and picked out the length that I wanted (14″ to look more natural). The colour matched perfectly to my hair, as I was only purchasing the hair alone it came to under £30 – Real human Indian remy hair extensions. I ordered the micro bonds online and they were no more than £3 including delivery. I wear three rows in my hair, each row has double thickness. The only difficulty with these hair extensions is sewing on the micro loops to the hair – This does take time but once this is done, inserting the hair extensions is quick and easy. I would love to one day be able to make the extensions and sell them on, I have looked online and haven’t been able to find any ready-made ‘Micro Weaves’. If anyone does locate these, I’d love to hear about it, because it would save me the effort of sewing them on!;)
My hair was in very poor condition due to bleaching my hair, after applying coconut oil to it once or twice a week it was like my hair was reborn. I still apply hair masks to my hair as often as I can, as the extensions don’t slip about, I can apply deep conditioning masks to my hair without having to worry that they will become loose.
