Collection Speedy Blush Pinch Me

Hi beauties,

I’ve got some makeup today with Collection Speedy Blush in Pinch Me. Creme blushes are a new discovery to me, I was always a little put off them as I thought they wouldn’t stay on my oily skin.

Collection are a British brand established in 1987, providing fashion forward affordable makeup on the high street. In the U.K. their Lasting Perfection Concealer has somewhat of a cult status, it is a favourite of many a blogger and beauty expert!

Speedy Blush was an option of my Latest in Beauty Box and as I hadn’t tried any creme blushes before I thought I would try it. This shade is called Pinch Me which is a beautiful berry shade that gives you a gorgeous flush of colour. I’m really pleased with the effect and how easy it was to apply.

I was also impressed with how long it lasted, it’s survived an evening in a warm kitchen when I went to my sister and brother in law’s for dinner. I had to do a cleanse for me to remove all of it!

Speedy Blush is fabulous value, at £3.99, there are three shades to choose from and they are available from both Boots and Superdrug.

Till next time,

You Beauty Box September

Hi beauties,

Well I bring bad news: this is the last month I shall be bringing you the You Beauty Box. You have teemed up with Latest in Beauty so won’t be doing their boxes anymore. Booooo! There will be options to choose more products but naturally this will cost more and from the look of the first shortlist I’ve seen, is short on full sizes. That’s what I really loved about You, you were offered full sizes so we’re really able to get massive value for money. Perhaps I am greedy….well to be truthful, there is no perhaps about it.

I digress, here is what I chose from this months fab shortlist:

  • Dr Organic Organic Morrocan Glow Body Polish
  • Max Factor Epic Lash Mascara
  • Neals Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm
  • Beauty Kitchen Seahorse Plankton 5 Minute Miracle Mask
  • Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor
  • Weleda Grenade Parfum

This box cost £10.95 including postage and you can buy from http://www.box.you.co.uk.

I will be trying out the Latest in Beauty offering so keep your eyes peeled for that post.

Till next time,

June Glossybox

Hi beauties


I haven’t tried a subscription from Glossybox before so when I saw there was 50% off for the month of June, I thought I would dive in and see what the traditional beauty box is like. My You Beauty Box has products that I am able to choose myself, so I always know what I am getting.

Glossybox sends 5 products, a combination of full and sample sizes for £10.00 plus £3.95 for delivery. I received:

  • Eness Arian Oil hand cream
  • Batiste Heat Protect and Shine Spray
  • 111 Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel
  • Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayon in Collosal Coral
  • Manna Kadar Sheer Glo Illuminator

This was a good box for me, I like the mix of products and there isn’t one I won’t use so I am pretty impressed. I am going to get the next month’s box too to compare to see whether or not I will carry on with the subscription. You can sign up at http://www.glossybox.co.uk.
