Here’s my August Glossy Box review, finally up! Been very busy the past few weeks so expect loads of new blogs in the next week.

Jelly Pong Pong

This has been my favourite product for the last month. This is an eyeliner and shadow but so far i’ve only used it as a liner as that’s what i use on a day to day basis. I’m never going back to another eye liner again! This stays on most the day for me and i only need to apply it twice throughout the day. This is a must have beauty product and i’d definitely try it out! It’s £10.50 on there website.

Emite eyelash curlers

I never use eye lash curlers. It’s something i have never got into so the past month i’ve tried my hardest to fit it into my daily make up routine. I had these really cheap pair from Tesco and i always used to think, ‘oh, eye lash curlers are all the same’. I completely disagree now! These are amazing, and they should be at the price of £20! They do wonders to my eye lashes and i see such a difference now using these as well. Even if you don’t buy these exact ones, just splash out a little and buy a good pair. They will last you ages and you will love your lashes!
TRESemme keratin smooth

Straight away i did notice a difference. Not a huge difference but a slightly. I’m going to go out and purchase more though and see if it will do wonders to my hair! It’s cheap to buy at £1.49. I’ll do a run up blog about this product in the next few months as i’m hoping this is the treatment my hair needs!
Oceane Make up Remover Stick.

Love the idea of this product and i have used it a lot so far for the bits of smudged make up under my eyes, but.. using a cotton bud and make up remover does the exact same job. It makes me sad as i had such high hopes about this product! I’d be lying if i said i loved it but i’m not going to lie to you guys as after all my beauty blog is all honesty!
Urban Veda Day Cream

I can’t stop using this stuff. I’m actually starting to run out of it now so i might need to pop back online and purchase more! It just makes my skin feel AMAZING. My skin is pretty bad as well and i have noticed a remarkable difference and my skin feels so much healthier! It’s 7.99 for a larger bottle. Definitely try it out on there website!
Much love. Karina xoxo

My most recent purchase are these gorgeous lip balms by Maybelline called ‘Baby Lips’ which are £2.99 and you can find these in the likes of Superdrug and Boots. They have only recently arrived in the UK and they have hit it big! It literally took me a good few shops to find them in as they are sold out everywhere! There are 6 to collect and the only one i couldn’t get my hands on was the Yellow one! But, i did manage to get the rest! I’ll name them all for you and then go into a little detail on these must have lip products!
(from left to right)
Pink: ‘Pink Punch’
Purple: ‘Peach Kiss’
Blue: ‘Hydrate’
Green: ‘Mint Fresh’
Orange: ‘Cherry Me’
( The Yellow one which i don’t yet have is called, ‘Intense Care’).

All these lip balms do work the same for me! They are all moisturising and a easy size to just pick up and go! Each day i’ll tend to pick up a different one and try it out! The only three with a flavour to them are, ‘Peach kiss’ which obviously tastes like peach, ‘Mint Fresh’ which is very minty, and ‘Cherry Me’ which is my favourite flavour and i literally just want to eat it! But, the one for me which i take to work with me every day is ‘Hydrate’ (blue). I work in a place where i need to go into huge freezers and Fridges a lot of the time and my lips chap so quickly due to the coldness, but the hydrate lip balm for me just works a complete treat! It really does do what the name says and hydrates your lips! I notice a difference straight away and can’t stop telling people at work about them, hoping they will go out and buy them to! They are definitely one of my must have beauty products for winter!
Which one is your favourite? Let me know!

Everyone raves about, Mac, Benefit, Inglot etc. But the make up brand i have a lot of and i use in my everyday make up routine is, Victoria Jackson. If you guys haven’t heard of her before, she has a website and is based in the USA but i’d definitely go and check it out! So i’m going to show you my make up palettes i have and here’s hoping you will love them as much as i do and purchase some!

So this was one of the first palettes i received and it’s my favourite out the lot of them! It has more natural colours and a few odd darker. They are really pigmented and what’s also great about this palette is that you got a eye liner and mascara with it! In the next few weeks i’m going to be doing some make up looks using this palette so keep an eye out for that!

swatches of palette above (the first 3 are very light but you can just make them out)
Now, i haven’t used this as much as i wanted to as i tend to use lipsticks more than lipglosses but i do use then when i want to tone down a brighter lipstick and even it out to the colour my skin tone matches. So i really only use this palette for that, and that alone! But this would be good for people who are into glosses and want something a little different. 
swatches of the lip gloss palette
This is the bronzer i always use on a night out, i have two of these as i love them so much! They are just the perfect shade for my skin, not to in your face but not to light either! I’d go and check them out. They definitely wont disappoint! 

I got this palette and another (which will be down below) in a set, Day and Night. This is the night time palette. More darker eye shadows, blusher and lips. I really do love this but i haven’t been brave to wear dark purples out yet. But, i’m going to start using all my high end make up more, so a make up look will definitely be on the cards using this palette! (LEFT TO RIGHT)
  • highlight
  • three purple eye shadows
  • blusher
  • two red lip glosses

This is the ‘day time’ palette. As you can tell, i have used this A LOT. I haven’t really used it for the past 4 months but this used to get a lot before then! The blusher is just the right colour for me and i don’t want to finish it as i can’t find another one i love as much as that! The three eye shadows are 2 pinks and a black. I used to blend those three constantly together to give a smokey eye look. (LEFT TO RIGHT)
  • Bronzer
  • 2 pink and 1 black eye shadow
  • blusher
  • 2 pink lip glosses

Finally, last but not least. My large palette. Now, must admit, i found this at the make of my make up drawer about a month ago and can’t believe i forgot about it! The four eye shadows are totally me at the moment as i’m going for a more nude look on my eyes! I get a lot of use out of the blushers at the moment to and use them daily but as for the poor lip glosses i just feel like i neglect them as i’m just not a fan of them! If i could take them out of it and pass it on to someone else, i would! You may be wondering why there are three brushes missing, but that’s because i took them out and put them in my make up pot. I don’t tend to use brushes i get with sets and use my own! 
I hope you guys enjoyed this VERY long haul. Please check out her stuff, it’s incredible!

So this month was my first month receiving a GlossyBox! I was so excited about it, but also a little nervous as i had a heard a few people say it was a waste of money and it wasn’t all the fantastic! But, i thought i’d go for it and see myself if it’s worth it or not! This is not a review. This is me showing you what i received, then the start of September i will be doing a review on the products!

August 2013 box
Jelly Pong Pong eye pencil

When i first opened this, this is what i was instantly drawn to! I am so excited to try this out! Not only is it a eye pencil but it’s also a shadow stick! You can buy these online on the jelly pong pong website at £10.50.

Emite eye lash curlers 
These are so beautiful and i can’t wait to try them out! I am a little scared of eye lash curlers! (i’m not the only one right!?) but i was going to buy some so these saved me some money! You can buy these on Emite’s website and these are £20.
TRESemme Keratin Smooth hair treatment 
This was a weird one! I was going to buy this in Tesco a week before i got this Glossybox, so i was so happy when i seen this in it! I can’t wait to test it and see if it actually works! This is £1.49 in highstreet stores!

Oceane make up remover pen
I was the most excited about this product! It is so unusual and id never heard of anything like it before! I’m most excited about reviewing this the most! It’s not yet available in the UK, but when it is, i’ll let you guys know!
Urban Veda Skincare
This is a daily radiance cream which i’m hoping to stick to! It says it brightens up your face and balances skin tones! But i’ll be the judge of that! You get these on there website and start from £7.99 a bottle!
I can’t wait to review these for you guys! The blog will be up in the next 2 weeks! Enjoy!
