So here is the August Glossybox. This months box celebrated the 3 year anniversary of the Glossybox and I have to admit I was slightly disappointed. The box itself has been swapped for a slightly smaller and cheaper looking one but that wasn't a big issue, however considering this is an anniversary box I thought they might have gone all out with the products.

Although I did expect more from this months box I'm still looking forward to trying out all my new products.

So here's what I got in my August Glossybox...


1. Lalique L'Amour - I'm one of those girls who has her favorite perfumes she always sticks to but I actually really like this one. I've never heard of this brand before but I'm looking forward to using this little sample. I tested it when I first got the box and it smelt lovely, although I probably won't be buying a the full product just yet as its a little pricey for me.

2. Yves Rocher Pink Nail Polish - When I first opened the box I was happy to see this little pink nail varnish. Although I was slightly disappointed at the size, I love the shade and I'm tempted to paint my nails with it for my holiday next week. I will definitely be doing a review of this, so keep a lookout!

3. Essence Longlasting Lipstick in #7 Natural Beauty - When I saw I had a lipstick it this months box I was a little apprehensive as I  had received one before that didn't suit me at all. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I took the lid off. It's a lovely subtle shade that will be perfect for everyday use. Although I haven't tried it yet, it's not too different from the shades I usually use so I'm excited to try it.

4. Philip Kingsley Elasticizer - I'm really really excited to try this out. I always love trying out new hair products and I cant wait to give this one a go. It was originally created for Audrey Hepburn and its meant to give your hair more bounce and shine. Here's hoping it makes my hair happy.

5. Kryolan Highlighter Cashmere - I was sent a highlighter a few boxes back and I love it. It will take a lot for this highlighter to even come close to my current one but either way I'll give it a go.

6. Figs & Rouge Mini Hand Cream - I'm slightly apprehensive about trying this one out. I have quite bad eczema and I have to be very careful with what I put on my skin. Although I usually use prescription creams on my hands I'm still going to try it and see how it goes. 

So that is what I received in  my August Glossybox! I'll be reviewing these products in the next few so keep a lookout!

For my birthday Sean bought me three lovely Bourjois eye shadows, in pink, purple and gold. I don't think I'd ever used any of the Bourjois eyeshadows before so it was nice to try out a new brand! Today I'm going to review my favorite of the three Bourjois eyeshadows - the gold one.

I've been using this eyeshadow most days since I got it and I'm absolutely in love with it. It is a really really sparkly girly eyeshadow and its just perfect for me. I thought It would be more vivid than it is and I was slightly disappointed when I first tried it, But after using it a few times I decided I preferred it being less obvious as I could wear it every day. I usually just brush it lightly over my eyelids for a really faint sparkle but for nights out I brush it over a plain gold eye shadow for a really glittery effect.

One of the things I love about this eye shadow is the mirror in the lid. This is the only eye shadow (apart from my pallets) I own with a mirror in it and that's great for when I'm out and about. I'm not sure why other brands haven't added a mirror into any of the eyeshadow singles because it looks nice and it's super useful too!

I don't know how much the Bourjois eyeshadow singles are as they were a gift but I would say they are worth investing in as they are a staple product in your make-up bag.

Overall I really enjoyed using this product and would give it a 7/10

Have you tried out any of the Bourjois eyeshadow singles? What did you think of them?

Another month and any round up of my favourite beauty goodies! This months beauty roundup features a few treats from my July Glossybox which was packed out with great beauty products for me to try.

So which beauty products have I been loving this month...


1. Pro:voke Touch Of Silver Shampoo - I use any basic blonde dye to lighten my hair, but this doesn't always leave it looking that natural. I often get brassy yellow tones and the best thing to fix that is this shampoo. I've tried cheaper versions of silver shampoo and honestly nothing comes close to this stuff.

2. B. Quick #157 Cosmical Nail Varnish - I received this nail varnish in one of my glossy boxes and I'm in love with the colour. It doesn't stay on and long as I would like but as been as I usually paint my nails to look nice for one night, this doesn't bother me all that much.

3. Carmex Classic Lip Balm - This is another glossybox goody that I've taken a liking too, I think I've actually used it everyday since getting it. This is one of those products I can not recommend enough. It literally stays on for so long, I put it on before work and its still on after my shift is finished!

4. Absolute Eye shadow Primer - oh dear, yet another glossybox item. I'd been after a primer for so long. I have fairly veiny eyebrows, so any help in hiding that is appreciated. The primer works really well and stops my eye shadow forming wrinkles on my lids. I don't really have anything to compare it to but so far I'm happy!
