valentine's day glossybox


I know that Valentine's Day was a little while ago now and may seem like a distant memory to most however I've been ill recently so only just managed to get this post up. I usually only review themed boxes that I get sent from Glossybox as I find them most interesting to read and they usually include the best products.

 SASSOON PROFESSIONAL SPRAY SHINE

I've tried a couple of Sassoon products before and liked them so I'm looking forward to trying out this shine spray. It's also the perfect size to fit in my handbag or take with me whilst travelling.

 ANATOMICALS YOU NEED A BLOOMING SHOWER

Anatomicals are quickly becoming one of my new favourite brands, I absolutely love the bright packaging and cheeky slogans on their products. I usually find rose scents too sickly however I really like this as it has just the right balance.

MINERS COSMETICS LIP COLOUR

When I first saw this lipstick included in the box I thought I'd hate it and had no expectation of ever using it however I tried it on and really liked the frosty finish it gave my lips, it certainly wouldn't be the shade for everyone but is worth looking at if you like cool toned lippies.

MICA BELLA MINERAL SHADOW  

My least favourite product out of the bunch is this loose eye shadow, it's a warm toned brown with chunky glitter, basically my worst nightmare. The pigmentation isn't very good either and has a cheap feel to it.

MEMEME COSMETICS FATCAT LENGTHENING MASCARA

I'm yet to try out this mascara but I like how they included a full size of this in the box. I know that MeMeMe are quite a popular brand on the blogging scene as the products are inexpensive and can be bought from Superdrug.

  3. I think I got the same lipstick as you. I tried it on last night and my boyfriend asked 'why do you look dead?' lol! Hope it's nicer on you :)
