A Cheeky Origins Purchase

Sunday, 27 October 2013


This Birchbox review is super late because I had an absolute nightmare with this months box! I ordered the box and the first one never turned up, so they kindly sent a replacement. When the replacement arrived the nail polish had smashed, so there was polish everywhere, so they sent another replacement. They also credited me with some Birchbox points to say sorry which was kind.

Today's post is a super quick NOTD, which is a Bourjois Gel Effect Polish in Green Fizz! It's a beautiful colour but I'm not hugely sold on the formulation. It's quite hard to use (as you can probably tell by the swatch) it's very thick and quite gloopy with is such a pain! It takes some time to make perfect but it is possible! Have you tried any of the Bourjois Gel Effect polishes? Everyone seems to rave about them!

I mentioned in my last empties post that I've making a big effort to get rid of all my half empty products, so now I have another load of things to talk about. We're staying with my in-laws so I have nowhere to store empties at the moment, so I need to do these posts fairly regularly!

Behold my new favourite makeup accessory, the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

I received this beautiful little sample of Elizabeth Arden Untold in the September Glossybox and I love it. I cannot believe the attention-to-detail even in this tiny little sample, especially with the quote on the opening of the box.

I picked up this cute Essie mini set in my most recent haul, first of all I was quite disappointed because normally Essie mini sets come with four shades and I did not realise that this set only had three colours.

If you're a blogger, or even just a woman, the chances are that you have too much makeup, lets face it, we're only human! Even with 75% of my makeup collection currently in storage, a lot of my makeup is sat in a box. I keep a bag of makeup on my dressing table, which I use everyday and I just get stuck in a rut. So from now on, every month I've going to 'shake up my makeup' and pick out some products that I haven't used in a while. So here is this months bag:

 I've spent quite a long time experimenting with base and top coats, for a long time I had a problem with my nail polish 'pushing back' and it was so frustrating. Finally I've found my favourite combination of base and top coat, so I thought I'd dedicate a post to them.

For this months beauty haul I chose to pick some bits and bobs from Boots, I decided to finally cross some things off my wish list.

I spent a long time eying up Gleam, its raved about so much by bloggers and I love a good highlighter. In May, Illamasqua had a 50% code and I couldn't resist any longer.

I'm really trying my best recently to make an effort to finish things before using new items, as my stash is way too big. So I've been finishing quite a few bits and pieces over the last few months (for me anyway)

September's Glossybox was 'London' themed, sporting the best of London born brands. The box came with a beautiful union jack covering the lid and a blue colour theme.
