Glossybox May Anniversary Box

Happy Birthday Glossybox!

As Glossybox were celebrating their 1st Anniversary, I was really looking forward to getting my Glossybox this month. I'm happy with the products I got and I love the glossybox mirror and balloon which I think is such a cute touch! 
I did think back to the first ever Glossybox with the full sized Nars illuminator and would have loved another 'wow' product to celebrate this month, however the some of the past Glossyboxes have been really good and it is great value considering the moisturiser alone is £12!
I'm really excited to try the Neils Yard Moisturiser as my mum uses a lot of Neils Yard products and has amazing skin! I don't tend to splash out on moisturiser so it will be interesting to try. The collection gel eyeliner looks nice, although I'm not too sure about the brush, I love the maybelline eyeliner and brush so it will be good to compare them!
I also got a couple of perfume samples which smell nice, but I never really use perfume samples so i'm sure they'll end up with the rest at the back of my cupboard! The Noble isle bath and shower gel also smells good, quite manly so I'm sure my bf will be using it too!

Did everyone like what they got?

Loreal Haul


For the past year, my Staple eyeliner has been Loreal Carbon Gloss Liquid eyeliner. I wear liquid eyeliner everyday and so Loreal Carbon gloss ticks all the right boxes for me as it's long lasting, the wand is a good size and the pigmentation is strong. Recently, everytime I go into Boots or superdrug they have been sold out! I know Loreal have brought out a new line of eyeliners so I hope they're not discontinuing Carbon gloss, I can't find it anywhere!
In the end I gave up looking for it and bought the next closest thing, Loreal Super Liner in Black. It's very similar to Carbon Gloss, the wand looks exactly the same, the pigmentation is dare I say, even better than carbon gloss and its also quite matte which I actually prefer. The only downside is I don't think its as smudge resistant as carbon gloss, it is long lasting, but seems to rub off easier. 

While I was at the Loreal counter, I thought I would try out a couple more of Loreals products that Fleur mentioned in her March monthly favourites. I picked up Loreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick in 'Tempting Lilac' and Loreal colour Infallible eyeshadow in Sahara treasure.

I really like the colour of the Rouge Caresse lipstick, its a gorgeous pinky lilac colour and looks really pretty together with the Infallible eyeshadow. A lot of people actually prefer the Caresse lipsticks to the Revlon lip butters and although I love the colour and glossiness that the Caresse has, it feels more like a lipstick and the moisturising benefits don't seem to sink in to my lips. It also doesn't last as long on my lips as the Revlon lip butters do for me.

Loreal Infallible eyeshadow is by far my favourite product I picked up. It is a gorgeous taupe colour which works best applied with a fluffy brush swept all over the eye. It's such a pretty everyday colour and is fast becoming my new favourite eyeshadow! Fleur also mentioned in her video that Giorgio Armani are owned by the same company as Loreal and that this eyeshadow is similar to the Giorgio Armani eye shadows which is a bonus!

Whats your favourite Loreal product?
