Boudoir Privé Beauty Box - September 2011

Today I finally received my first ever Boudoir Privé Beauty Box! It took a while to arrive, but I must admit that it's worth the wait! Here is what I got in my box:

This eye cream retails at £90 for 15ml! I'd say this was around a 5ml sample so I'm dead chuffed with it!

This looks like a rather interesting hair oil treatment. A bottle of this size retails for £5.75!

This. Smells. Beautiful. If you like the lemon/lime scent that this is for you. It seriously smells good enough to eat. Can't wait to use it.

This is what made the box for me! Zoya are a brand that I've wanted to try for ages but never got the chance to. Now Boudour Privé have given me the chance to give their products a go! I adore this colour. It's something I would've picked for myself!

This glitter 'Boogie Nights' eyeliner by Cargo Cosmetics is quite a let down. I adore glitter in eyeliner's, but this just completely lacks in any decent pigmentation.

This small sample of Agent Provocateur perfume is a little strong for me and isn't the usual fruity scent that I go for, but still not too bad.

These Blot & Bronze papers seem like quite a novel concept, but I quite like being my pale-self haha.

Finally you get this nice little sampler of all the nail colours in the Fall 2011 collection from Zoya!Good idea!

I went into the most unlikely of places today and actually found something that I adored and thought actually suited my style. This place? Bon Marché. Crazy, I know. I liked the item that much that I got two!

Zebra Print Cardigan - £14 from Bon Marché.
This thing is bloody wonderful! I bought the magenta and white versions because I just fell completely in love. On the website the magenta one is called 'red' for some reason, but it genuinely is more pink. I love the black rubbon belt detail on it too. Here's a link to the website if you want to buy one for yourself: Click here.

Facets Of Fuchsia Revlon Nail Enamel - £4.49 from Superdrug.
This is going to be the 'must have' colour this autumn, I think. I know in the States a few Guru's have raved about this product. It's also featured on Boots current alarm shrouds at the front of store. I've just put it on over the top of Boulivard by Barbra Daily and it looks wonderful. It's a sheer black polish with magenta pieces of large and small glitter. It looks stunning.

Paperchase Bubble & Sweet photoalbum £9.50
This is adorable! It can be used as either a photo album or a scrap book. The pages are bright and fun. It can be closed and bound by a purple ribbon. It looks so cute and totally kawaii!

Paperchase tin pot £2.50
This little tin is adorable. I'm going to be putting my makeup brushes in it.

Hello Kitty Wristband £4 from Claire's
I spied this while browsing in Claire's Assessories and had to buy it! It's thicker than most other rubber wristbands (as can be seen on the second photo). It features different sized Kitty's and looks lovely!

Cowshed Lippy Cow Lip Balm £1.49 from eBay

MUA Single Eyeshadows - £1 each from Superdrug.
I still can't get over these eyeshadows. For a quid you just can't go wrong! They are so pigmented, as you can see on the photo. These are four of the new shades. Lovely.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation £26.50
I picked up another bottle of my all time favourite foundation because it is the only foundation that is light enough for my skintone. The shade I go for it 'Shell' and it suits my skin perfectly. I love the dewy finish and it just doesn't budge all day.

In some places at the moment you can get a couple of freebies! They come in this cute little blue mesh bag.

You get this 7 day Advance Night Repair.

You also get this little foundation brush for free too! It seems really good quality and comes in a cute little pouch, so thumbs up for good freebies!

FOTD, September Glossy Box & Haul

Face of the day

Eyeshadows used- Dollipop by Sugarpill Cosmetics, Blue & Purple eyeshadow by Famous by Sue Moxley.
Eyeliner - MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Mascara - Maybelline Cat Eyes mascara
Lipstick - Kate Moss Collection lipstick by Rimmel in shade 03

GLOSSY BOX for September 2011
Today I received my second ever Glossy Box. I'm much happier with this box that I was with the last. Here is what I got in my box.

All in all, I'm much happier with this box. I will actually be using every product in this box instead of the one or two that I actually used in the last box. Thumbs up Glossy Box. You've redeemed yourselves!
NOW.. To the hauling!

I got this amazing Sugarpill Cosmetics Trio Chromalust set. I had no idea that these things even existed until I looked on Genie Cosmetics' website. I was really happy with the set because I was going to buy Birthday Girl (The pink colour) and Darling (the teal colour) anyway. Tiara is a beautiful colour too so I'm impressed. For £18.99 I think the set is a bargain as they usually retail at just over £8 each!

This one is Birthday Girl (Pink with pink glitter)

This is Tiara, a very finely milled silver.

And finally this one is Darling. I like this one the most. Beautful teal with shimmer.

These are the nail polishes I bought.
From L-R - Claire's Accessories (nameless?)
Sinful Colors - Purple Diamond
Stargazer - 303
W7 - Blue Diamonds

I also got these clip in hair extentions from Blue Banana. I know they scream scene kid, but THEY'RE LEOPARD PRINT!

This Revlon Kabuki brush was a bargain at only £2.99!

These false eyelashes were only £1.99 each and I think they're very, very pretty.

I got this Bodyology Crushed Pearl Créme in the shade Bora Bora for only £2.99. I'll probably use this as an eyeshadow base. It's such a beautiful colour.

I also bought two samples of INAZ cosmetics pigments. This one is called Power. It's a stunning bright purple with glitter.

This is another INAZ pigment. I believe it's called Victory (I'm not sure, the sticker on the bottom doesn't seem to fit all the name on.)

So, that's all for today folks. Speak to you soon!
