Bare Minerals x Glossybox

Since I bought the #BareMinerals concealer, I have wanted to buy more of the range. But they are pricey compared to my usual. So seeing this collaboration with Glossybox I knew it was my chance to try them out at an affordable price.

I’m not a glossybox subscriber so I bought this limited edition at £30 as a one off price.

#Skinlongevity Vital Power Serum it’s a deluxe mini 7.5ml and worth £7.20 it’s infused with Japanese long life herb extracts to help reduce the fine lines and wrinkles, while hydrating and nourishing skin.

#Lashtopia Mega Volume Mineral Based Mascara it’s a deluxe mini 6.5ml and worth £11.40 I really wanted this, though I felt it’s out of place in a skin based box. It’s not clumpy and feels light weight. Not as good as my Benefit Bang Mascara but easier to remove.

#Barepro Glow Highlighter Drops a full sized product and worth £23.00 with light reflecting mineral pearls these are perfect added to your foundation or moisturizer for a dewy glow. Or be daring and add direct onto cheekbones and browbones.

#Endless Summer Bronzer a deluxe mini 3.8g worth £9.90 a newly launched matte bronzing powder. Wonder if it will top my Hoola? Add instant warmth while hiding imperfections and reducing pores.

#Primetime Foundation Primer a full sized product and worth £25 this will help make your base last o much longer, with vitamin C and e added and packed with antioxidants. Smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and remove excess oil.

I loved this box and yes it’s a great introduction to #BareMinerals but I feel the mascara was out of place, instead I would of preferred a foundation, or cc cream to really create a solid base. But that’s just my opinion.

#Blogmas 2018 Week 1 #No7AdventCalendar

Archive, Blogger Reviews, Events, blogmas 2018

Calendars I love them, the instant reward, the countdown, the surprise. However I wasn’t planning on even a chocolate one, but my daughter Mini Moon decided we HAD TOO. So she bought us a Dairy Milk (me) a Milkybar (Mr Moon) and Galaxy (Mini Moon) one. What a brilliant surprise for us.

As I said I had no plans on any calendars at all. And I ended up with 2!!

So this year I wasn’t going to do a beauty calendar, so many I liked and loved, but I felt I couldn’t justify it to myself. So I didn’t buy one. Little did I know as a Christmas present my husband (Mr Moon) had bought and surprised me with one.

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

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

but as a back to school box it’s ok, glad I used my points though. No card included, not sure why? But inside I got #GrowGorgeous scalp detox which youngest will use on her sunburnt scalp. Smells nice and it feels creamy. #WetOnes bit annoyed with them, I mean really?? #DailyConcepts mini facial scrubber, I do actually need a new one, so although pretty basic, it’s useful to me. #bangbeauty brow cream this will be used as why not, but I can’t see it turning me away from #wunder2 #beautypro bubbling cleansing masks, one of the few masks I love, so looking forward to using this.
Best thing in the box is #karllagerfeldmodelco lip pencil rosewood it’s absolutely gorgeous and the product I’m most excited about.
