Glossybox September

I know I am so late for this, but I only ordered this about 5 days ago and received the box yesterday, and I was so impressed with it that I had to post about it. This months Glossybox was themed around London Fashion Week.

Eylure Pre-glued Lashes - I have never owned or worn a pair of false lashes before but have always been intrigued to try some so I was quite pleased to see this pair in my box. I think they're a lovely shape and aren't too thick or peculiar shaped like some lashes I've seen before. It also helps that they are pre-glued so as I don't have to make a huge mess trying to apply them. I haven't used these yet as I'm saving them for a special occasion.

Toni & Guy Classic Shine & Gloss Serum - I've never tried a hair serum before so I was quite excited to see how much of a difference it makes to the hair. I applied 1 pump of this to the ends of my hair and instantly my hair looked 100% shinier! So long as you don't apply this anywhere near your roots, your hair will look so much shinier and glossier! Love!

Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips - I was slightly bemused to see this in the box as I've never really heard of 'nipple balm' before. It says that you can apply this to your lips or to any dry areas you have and can even use it as a brow gel. I used this on a really dry patch I have on my foot (nice!) and instantly felt that the patch was a lot smoother and a lot more hydrated. Very impressed. 

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Onyx Eye Liner - I was really looking forward to using this product when I saw it in my box, but unfortunately I was extremely disappointed, not by the product itself, but the lack of product. Yep, the tube was completely empty! No matter how hard I shook it nothing came out and when I tapped the tube it sounded completely hollow. Very disappointed with that. 

HD Brows Bronzer - Another item I was very excited to see. I haven't tried anything from HD Brows before, but really want to try out the brow pallet. This is a beautiful bronzer that doesn't have too much shimmer or glitter in it (perfect!) and is really pigmented so you don't need much at all. I love the packaging of this bronzer as it has a little flip lid that covers the bronzer when you open the pallet and also comes with a handy mirror.

All in all, I was very impressed with this box, especially the value of the box which calculates to over £40! The only disappointment was of course the empty eye liner.

What did you think of this months box?

September Wishlist

I love autumn and winter and always feel that I have much more time to shop during this time of the year. I have quite a wishlist for the month of September, which obviously I won't be able to get most of the things on my list, especially seeing as there is a pair of Acne boots on this list (I wish!). But I do hope to stock up on checked shirts and beautiful nail polishes. 

What's on your wishlist for this month?

Red Lips

I love a good red lip, but I don't always have the confidence to wear one. I thought I'd give you a look into my red lipsticks (not that I have many). I'm hoping to grow in confidence so that I can wear these beautiful shades more often.

Revlon lip butter in the shade Red Velvet 040 - This is a recent purchase I made and I hope to get a lot of ware out of it this autumn and winter. It's the perfect dark red and feels so glossy and smooth on my lips. Love this lipstick and I can tell it will be a staple this year. 

Chanel rouge allure in the shade Pirate 99 - I bought this lipstick for my prom this year because I thought it would be the perfect colour for my dress. I adore this lipstick. It applies so smoothly to my lips and it is so pigmented. The colour is slightly darker in person. 

Yves Rocher moisturising creme lipstick in the shade Fromboise 101 - I received this lipstick in a previous Glossybox. Honestly I wouldn't have bought this lipstick because I find it too bright to wear very often so this is a lipstick I save for a specific outfit or event. the formula of the lipstick however is very nice and creamy. 

Baby Lips in the shade Cherry Me - I was so excited when Baby Lips came across the border and into our stores here in the UK. So far I have two colours and would like to expand my collection to have every single colour, which shouldn't take too long as they are so cheap. This is the perfect tinted lipbalm which gives my lips a subtle red look without being too dramatic. Love it.

I have yet to try the Kate Moss lipsticks for Rimmel.
Any recommendations on what red lipstick to purchase next?
