#AD Affiliate

This month I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be able to try out some incredible products. I am on their PR list and I do have an affiliate code.

However I’m under no obligation to post and share my love for them. I choose to do this on my own, as they are incredible products and very affordable too.

Yes I have an affiliate code, (SIRENMOONBEE) Which ive yiu 30% sitewide, however if you are in the UK like me, I suggest to you via BeautyBay my code only works on the official Gerard Cosmetics but I understand my UK readers will find it cheaper and easier to order inside the UK.

As you can see I’m getting a fairly large and well used items. Some are new to try out, such as the highlighter which I know already I’m definitely buying again and again!! I got Grace star powder available here a beautiful golden glow, subtle but there, my new found LOVE.

I also made sure I tried the much raved about lip pencils. And I’m so glad I did. I chose #Cher #SugarAndSpice #Ecstasy #MelrosePlace all various pinky nudes and perfectly me, no matter the occasion. I do prefer subtle make up, muted even as mostly it’s day wear. Buy them here Cher is here

Ecstasy is here

Melrose Place is here

Sugar And Spice is here

For lipsticks I decided against another Hydra Matte as I know I love them, and will return to them once mine are all gone, instead I bought a #LyricaCollab James Gloss which is deliciously dark and seductive. You can buy here

I love the light and mirror that comes with these glosses, so I had to get another gloss but in pink, to occasionally brush over the lip pencil colours. I got #PinkFrosting you can buy Here

And because I LOVE liquid lipsticks I had to try the #RoseGold Metallic liquid lipstick, and it’s even better than I imagined. Buy it Here

To finish off I bought the Stastruck Palette, I believe it’s for highlighting, but I’m going to use mine as eyeshadow, as they shimmer and shine so beautiful. When used wet with Mac primer the copper shade is breathtakingly beautiful. You can can one Here

Urgh! I hate being ill, it’s so boring. Lately I can’t even focus on the TV, let alone binge watch Netflix. I’m just staring at the box, like a zombie at the moment.

You think you can catch up with reading or tv shows, while resting in bed. But the truth is, it’s almost impossible to hold a conversation, let alone follow a decent plot line in a book or on screen.

My only bonus is I’ve been taking ibuprofen 400mg tablets x 3 a day, and my hands have massively improved. Could be related or could just be as it was time for the flare to go down? Though hip is the opposite, the pain levels are high in the hip, really achy and stiff. But likewise that could be from me avoiding moving.

It’s no surprise I’ve not done anything, literally nothing for 2 days. I’m giving myself time to heal, and get over this virus. So instead here is my March #Glossybox hope it cheers me up!

I have no idea why I decided to start the subscription up again, and I’ll be honest the second I opened this box, I promptly cancelled it once more!!

It’s not that it’s bad as it’s not, but the #BellaPierre lipstick kiss proof creme is a deep burgundy, purple so I can’t wear it. My daughter now has it. Full size £20.00

#bybibeauty Plumper Lip Balm is lovely but tiny 10ml so at least it’s useful, but I’m not overwhelmed. Full size £9.00

#Laritzy Dew Pot Utopia highlighter pot, again a bit underwhelming. I’ve seen much better highlighters and it’s a creme which I don’t use. Full size £15.30

My favourite products ended up being the #essence You better work! Fixing spray, which has held my make up well when working out, or going to hydrotherapy. Full size £3.50

Finally we have another good staple product #TheBodyShop Shea Butter body butter in a deluxe mini (it’s a fair size) which would cost £6.00

Overall I thought it was pants compared to look fantastic boxes. And it seems to fall into a trap of same ole brands to use. If my daughter’s had received this box, she’d be over the moon though. So maybe it’s just me. Least I can use the Shea Body Butter while I feel grossly poorly, to make myself feel a bit better.

Being a UK based blogger I know there’s many a brand that feels out of reach, as they are based in the USA. And Gerard Cosmetics is one of them, or so I thought. Upon investigation more into the brand I saw they shipped internationally and I could easily order away.

After following them on Twitter and more specifically the owner Jennifer Gerard, the more I saw their luscious lipsticks, I knew I’d have to bite the bullet and try them, along with their legendary setting spray!

Here’s their statement on their website.

Gerard Cosmetics is a LA based cosmetics brand that is always pushing the makeup envelope with innovative formulas and beloved colors that have attracted a cult following. With an emphasis on color ,vibrancy and performance, every product was meticulously crafted to add some serious glam to your makeup routine.

The brand boomed in 2014 with the introduction of our popular gold bullet in the shade 1995. We have made it a priority to give our customers exactly what they want and we look to social media for feedback and inspiration from our customers and content creators. Shop our famous Hydra Matte Liquid lipsticks, Slay All Day Setting Sprays and everything you need to pull your look together.

Our passion and attention to detail is reflected in every product. You will swoon over our sleek gold and black packaging and our commitment to cruelty free formulas. We invite you to join the GC Squad, where makeup unites us all.

Jennifer Gerard started an open campagin on women, and men being micro influencers, focusing on the smaller content creators and not just the same problematic few. With this call out, and for mature ladies and gents who love make up, to apply to have pr packages and become part of this gcsquad. And I got lucky!!

So here’s what I bought with my pr credit,

Obviously I got hydra matte liquid lipstick 1995

Glitter lipstick in Swipe Right

And Lip supreme creme in Wild Berry Tarte.

Rose scented Slay all day setting spray

And mist-ified moisturizer facial mist.

And slay all day handheld mirror, which is a godsend.

Honeymoon starlet palette, perfect bronzer and blusher palette.

I’m loving them all, the formula on the Hydra matte lipstick is non drying and lasted me through eating out. The glitter lipstick was my wild card product, I had thoughts that it would feel sticky or chunky, and neither of them came true. It’s a dream to wear, and sparkles so much, it’s a must for party season. A nice alternative to a liquid lipstick, the wild berry supreme creme felt more gloss style and again a different feel to liquid lipsticks, but smells divine and feels so creamy and buttery while wearing it.

The facial mist is a new product for me, it feels refreshing to spray and go, and you know your skin is hydrated all day.

Setting spray, what can I say accept it’s bloody amazing!! I’m eager to try the cucumber one next, make up did not separate like it usually does, and stayed perfectly all day and night. A huge hit with me!!

Box I’ve never tried before #Tili from #QVC

Archive, Beauty Boxes, Blogger Reviews, Events, Make Up, Beauty, Skincare

Unusual box for me, it’s a @qvcbeauty #Tili box it came with an array of goodies such as a

#Tili leopard print headband, perfect for when you are applying masks,zlich make up or just to have your hair off your face in a cute stylish way.

#winkylux eyeshadow in Ursula and inky plum shadow with prismatic shimmer, so pigmented.

#sandandsky soon purifying pink clay mask, 4 in 1 clay mask takes the stress out if detoxing the skin.

#bod mermaid shimmer sorbet, party season is nearly here and what better way to get party ready than with a sparkle and shimmer, iridescent glow and holographic effects.

#antipodes worship serum, an organic nature conscious brand gives us a serum to fight the oxidative stress and environmental aggressors, it’s water based, to give your skin a new luminous lease of life.

#livingproof dry shampoo, a clean scented dry shampoo travel sized that will draw out oils, sweat and odour, leaving you feeling fresh. (Much needed after surgery, as washing hair will be a struggle)

#korres lavender blossom shower gel, a zen like scented lavender and citrus gel perfect after surgery too. I’ve always loved korres.

#pixi endless silky eye pen in black noir, a gel crayon that gives a jet black colour, that can be smudged or drawn into precision.

#caudalie vinosource moisturising sorbet, had this before and it’s perfect for dry thirsty skin, hydrating just when you need it most.

#shayandblue black tulip edp an absolute gorgeous velvety floral perfume, with notes that are rich and sensual. A perfume like no other!

#ciate liquid velvet lip in delight, a dusky nude. A light weight non drying to lips lipstick, infused with hyaluronic acid to keep lips hydrated and plump all day.

My review

I was seriously impressed with this box it’s a one off payment and it cost £20 and the contents are worth a lot more, they say £52 which I think is about right. Good deluxe or travel size, and I’m looking forward to trying them all out.

Totally bought as a hospital/surgery pick me up, as I spotted the dry shampoo, and shower gel, and perfume, those with the headband turned my head to buy. Everything else a bonus to me x
