Glossybox - June.

This past month has just flown by so I was quite surprised when I realised it was Glossybox time again. This time with the 'jetsetter' box*.


Rituals ... - Qi Gong Spray
£3.50 / 50ml
This spray contains white lotus and yi yi ren which give nourishing properties and a really fresh scent. It claims to deliver 24 hour protection, perfect for on the go. This anti perspirant is also a really great size for travelling.

L'Oreal Paris - Volume Million Lashes Black
£10.99 / 9ml
I have enough mascaras open at the moment so am saving this one. But it says that it gives you maximum volume. Curious to see if it lives up to the claims.

Teeez Trend Cosmetics - Beautiful Flat Stiff Brush
€19
Upon opening this I realised how much alike to the M.A.C 239 it is. The bristles aren't quite as soft but it still packs colour onto the eyelid.

So Susan Cosmetics - Concealer Quad
£20
I was so excited when I opened this up. A white concealer! Being so pale, trying to highlight/contour with concealer is kind of impossible. I'm excited to see how this white works under/over foundation to highlight. The other shades can be used for contouring or covering blemishes. It comes with a lightweight formula and can even be used on oily skin, perfect for summertime.

Nailgirls - 3-in-1 Base/Topcoat & Nail Strengthener
£13.50 / 15ml
I don't think anything will ever replace for my Seche Vite topcoat but this works as a nail strengthener. I'll be using it under my colour of choice to keep my nails in tip top condition.

I think this month had a good selection, a little bit of everything. I found it a good balance. I'm most looking forward to trying the concealer palette.

I'm already looking forward to July's box as I recently had a little sneak peek. It looks to be a good one, don't miss out!

Sleek Pout Polish - Bare Minimum.

With the ever changing weather of late, I've found my lips in need a moisturising boost. Sleek's Pout Polish in Bare Minimum* has found it's way into my everyday favourites as it helps to combat dryness, whilst giving you a hint of colour.


Pout Polish in Bare Minium is a light nude beige tinted lip conditioning balm that nourishes whilst providing a subtle hint of colour and a natural sheen. Formulated with SPF 15 and natural oils such as almond oil, shea butter and Vitamin E, keeping lips protected and moisture locked in.

I was quite excited to receive this in a Glossybox just a few months ago. Sleek products are really great value and I've yet to try a bad product from them.

This balm has a thin formula, so it doesn't feel heavy on the lips. It feels like you aren't really wearing anything. It comes with a rather artificial sweet scent which is only noticeable in the pot.

I wasn't sure I'd get much wear out of such a muted colour. But I've grown rather attached to it. Bare Minimum is great to throw on if you're wearing little makeup, or even none at all. I also think it would work really well over bright lipsticks to tone it down a little, if you don't feel comfortable wearing them in all their glory. I think the colour is really versatile and it can go with all number of looks.

The only thing I dislike is the design of the pot. They're unhygienic and I just don't like using fingers to apply product but that's my only negative.

Overall this surprised me but I really like using this Pout Polish.

London IMATS 2014.


In just a couple of weeks, the biggest beauty event of the year will be upon us - The International Makeup Artist Trade Show, or IMATS for short. The yearly show brings together makeup artists, exhibitors and enthusiasts to display and discuss their passion.

Last year was my first time going. I had imagined how amazing it would be but it was so much better than that. The atmosphere, the makeup looks artists were creating and of course, the fabulous products and discounts.
The wait last year was torture but this year it's come around surprisingly quick. Perhaps because I've been so caught up with working all the time! But I'm really looking forward to this year as I know what to expect.

As Leanne rightly guessed, I'm pretty damn excited that Sugarpill are exhibiting this year! Along with other favourites of mine that I will be making a visit to such as MUFE, OCC and Inglot to name just a few.

If you're going, do feel free to tweet me. As with last year, I'd love to meet more people I follow and readers alike.

Unfortunately Saturday tickets have been sold out for quite some time but Sunday is still available online. Tickets will also be available on the door, providing they don't sell out beforehand.
