Glossy Box August

So I don't want to start another post off, with me apologising for my lack of content this month. If you are curious to where I have been I might do a post about all of that.

Anyway moving onto the post, as every month comes by I get excited for the day that the Glossy Box gets dropped at my front door. As many of you know (if you don't check out my post) last months box was amazing. The packaging and the content were just really well designed and put together.

Its back to the original packaging again, there is not much to say about the packaging with out repeating previous posts.

As usual you get a leaflet inside with a lot of information about the products you have received and useful tips about how to use the products. In this leaflet there was a beauty insider section about Rachel Kavanagh (CEO, GLOSSYBOX UK). She was given 5 questions which she has answered. This box was called High-flyers, and all of the products in the box are from various place. Such as UK, USA, Brazil and Sweden

I know what you are all reading this for and thinking get on with it what did you get?

I got 5 products close ups and detail below.

Juicy Couture - Viva La Juicy Noir
This perfume, is lovely its very sweet smelling. I would say its quite a young scent and probably not to everyone's taste. I personally love it but that's just me. I received a 1.5 ml  bottle which to be honest isn't that much but its enough to for a couple of uses. I don't think I would purchase the full size of this product just because of the price and the fact that I'm not totally blown away by the product. 
Product of USA

Oceane - Make up remover
This is basically a little 'felt tip pen' type of make up remover. My personal opinion on this product is that I think it looks a little cheap. It doesn't looks very nice and without sounding awful it looks like something you could pick it up in a pound store. It comes with 4 tips that are all reversible.
This product is not currently available to buy in the UK 
Product of Brazil

Emite Make Up - Eyelash Curler
I was very excited to receive this product its obviously a 'full size' product. I love this colours the effects. I just totally adore this product. I have ditched my old eyelash curlers and these have taken their place.
Product of Sweden

TRESemme - Platinum strength concentrated treatment shot
I wasn't totally blown away by receiving this product, I used it the night I got the box and I don't believe that it did a whole lot of good for my hair. But maybe its my hair type I don't know.
Product of USA

Jelly Pong Pong - 2in1 Shadow/liner
I love this product when I received the box I swatched it and it looked amazing so creamy and pigmented. It looks like a brilliant product and I cant wait to create a look with this product.
Product of UK

Thank you for reading if you would like to know any further information on any of the products about of a deeper review on any of them just let me know in the comments and I will be sure to do so.
See you soon
Lot's of love

Under Construction

You may have noticed that I have made a few changes to my blog, I am trying to create a space online that reflects my personality more than it did before. You may need to bare with me as there may be a few changes. But I promise you it will all be back and running smoothly soon and looking better than ever!

Whilst I'm writing this I thought I would give you a few updates.
I am currently really busy between working two jobs and studying, I have been trying to keep on top of everything and yes it is paying of. If there is a lack of posts then you know why. I have a lot of posts lined up. I still have posts to go up about my weekend in London so keep your eyes peeled as they are likely to go up with in the next few days.
Many thanks for reading.
Lots of Love
