Love me beauty box has arrived

I’m so excited….that I just can’t hide it…I’m about to lose control and I think I like it…

Oh yeah!

Ok that’s quite enough of that.  I do apologise my dears, but I really am excited to have received my Love Me beauty box, mentioned here earlier in the week.

So without further adue, I present my lovely present to me, so I may share my enthusiasm with you all.

Apologies for picture quality, I get hand tremors which give most of my photos a ‘soft focus’ type look, which is not what you want when you’re trying to showcase beauty products.  I shall defer to the stock picture for the main lineup.

First impressions

Mitchell and Peach
I love the concept.  It is local with natural ingredients.  The smell is a little nondescript, but will try it in the shower tonight and see how it ‘gels’ with my sensitive skin.

Artdeco gloss
Nice packaging and easy pen application.  Went on smoothly and not tacky and thick like some glosses.  I applied 10 mins before taking photo to see if it really did ‘cushion’ my wrinkles.  My lips feel lovely and moisturised, and I had quite crunchy ‘winter lips’ before application.

It gives a nice natural look, perfect for ‘I’m not wearing makeup’ makeup looks.  I will be using this often. *NB. The black mark on my lip is a scar, I haven’t been eating biros.

Jelly pong pong
The crayon is lovely and chunky with a thick nib.   I have been experimenting with brown on my lower lashes, so am looking forward to working it into my makeup routine tomorrow and seeing how workable and easy to use the formula is, and how the colour works for my skin tone and eye colour.

Absolution mask
Packaging looks high end, and mask smells quite astringent.  Looking forward to trying this.

Models own nail varnish
I haven’t done my own nails in an age (hand tremors and nail varnish don’t mix), but have decided to forgo my usual monthly gelish mani and funnel the money saved into buying even more makeup and clothes.  With the help of a nail corrector pen (and maybe a good friend) I am going to have a crack, and will report back with my thoughts.  They say once you go gelish, you never go back, but we shall see.

So that’s it guys and girls.  Thanks so much for your patience with my photo skills.  I’m sure if you bear with me I will.

Thank you for reading
