Unboxing: VIP box september 2014

Hello Sweethearts,

last week I received another VIP box so today I'm going to show you what I got.

 
 
 
 



The first item is the Jelly pong pong 2-1 shadow & liner.
I was very excited when I saw this item in the box, Jelly pong pong is a brand with a really good name. & when I read that this product is made of pure bee wax I was sold. I haven't tried it out though but the product sounds really good. You can use this product as eyeliner but at the same time you can also smudge it and make it into an eyeshadow.

This product is full size and costs 13.15 euros.


 The second item is the Lookx lipstick.
This lipstick is also made of bee wax and also contains vitamin c and oil which makes your lips moisturizing and soft. It claims to be long lasting and the perfect finishing touch. But to be honest that colour only looks good on my bedding. I'm never ever going to wear this colour.....

This product is full size and costs 17.80 euros.


The third item is the IDC institute Facial mask cacao oil.
This mask is perfect for dry to normal skin types.

This product costs 3.99 euros.


The fourth item is the Beauty UK stripey blusher.
Okay I had to say that I'm excited about this product because I used to have one just like this by Sephora and it was one of my all time favourites until I lost it.
This blush is basically a highlighter blusher and bronzer in one. You can apply the colours separately or all together with a big brush.

This product is full size and costs 5.49 euros.


The fifth and sixth item I pulled out of the box are a mini heart shaped nail file and a bb cream sample. I'm not a fan of bb creams and my sister is not a fan of samples so I'm probably just going to throw this out.

 
 
And last for best the seventh item is the Anatomicals Aloe Aloe Aloe. so that's what's going on here then Handy hand + lip balm tube.
I'm sooooooo happy with this product. I LOVE Anatomicals and I was eyeing this one online for a while. So I'm so happy to finally have this product!
 
This product is full size and costs 5.95 euros.
 
 
 
Overall this box had a lot of ups and downs and I finally made the decision to cancel my subscription. Since I'm starting at university again I don't have the money to keep all my beauty box subscriptions and I feel like I have seen it all. Every month it's almost the same brands and the same type of products and even though I love half the products I want something new. I want to be surprised and not be like "ooohhh... I have heard about this product far before this box."
I want beauty updates, a box with the lasted products and not last three months products. So that's why I cancelled my subscription.
 
 
What's your favourite beauty box?

Lip product Tuesday: Beauty UK lipstick in Pink my ride and Gossip girl.

Hello Sweethearts,

today is a Tuesday which means I'm going to share a (new) lip product! I'm going to review and share the swatches of the Beauty UK lipstick in the colours 16 pink my ride & 9 gossip girl. I already reviewed one other lipstick from this brand and collection. Click here to read that article.



On the left is the colour Gossip girl and on the right is the colour Pink my ride.

Beauty UK about this product:
"Leaving no shade unturned, our new collection of lipsticks in 'wet' or 'Matte' textures and an array of shades tempt you away from a predicable palette. The luxuriously moist formulation of the 'wet' collection leaves lips luscious and glossy with long lasting shine. Our 'Matte' formula gives a nourishing ,long-lasting pop of colour that packs a punch! all formulated with a fresh and tasty minty flavour."

 
 

Above is the colour Gossip girl and on below is the colour Pink my ride.

I owned one lipstick and I actually made it my goal to buy more colours from the collection when I got in the UK because I just love the texture and the fact that they smell like peppermint.
I choose these colours because Gossip girl has a funny name and looks gorgeous. It looks like a dark pink but when you look at the colour close up it got blue sparkles.
I bought Pink my ride because I own a lot of these hot pinks and I absolutely love to wear them!


Beauty UK is available at Superdrug (in the UK) and the lipsticks cost £3.49 each.

Review: Essence lash princess volume mascara

Hello Sweethearts,

today I'm going to share my opinion and photo's of the new lash princess volume mascara by Essence.
As soon as I saw this mascara online I ran to the store to get it. It's just so amazing. In some countries this mascara is part of the new collection in other countries this is part of the limited edition or trend edition of this moment.



Essence about this mascara:
"royal! the lash princess mascara with a specially-shaped cobra-head wand covers each individual lash to create dramatic volume and a gorgeous, sweeping look. for intensive fluttering lashes. just as unique as any princess, the mascara is presented in a beautiful evening gown."




The shape of this mascara was the main reason to try this product but the packaging itself is also very gorgeous!
I have tried Essence mascara's before like the the lash curler – volume and curl mascara & the Lashes go wild Mascara . I wasn't negative about these mascara's but I wasn't cheering for them either. I would never consider to repurchase them.
But the Lash princess volume mascara is of a whole new level. This mascara is A-MA-ZING! The photo's above I only wear two coats on my lashes. & the volume and length this products creates is incredible.
The only down side, I notices this before with Essence mascara's, is that the formula isn't perfect and don't hold the lashes curled up the whole day. But that problem is easily fixed by applying two different brand mascara's before and after use of this amazing Essence mascara.
The brush doesn't only create lots of volume and length but it also makes applying your mascara so much easier, especially without smutches.

Would I recommend this to other people? YES I would recommend you to go as fast as you can to your local store and buy it!
Would I repurchase this mascara? YES!!

I bought the mascara for €3.39.

Lip product Tuesday: Revlon colorstay moisture stain

Hello Sweethearts,

today is Tuesday which means a lip product Tuesday post. For today's I'm going to review the Revlon colorstay moisture stain in the colours 015 Barcelona nights & 010 LA exclusive.


The upper moisture stain is in the colour 010 LA exclusive & the one below is in the colour 015 Barcelona nights.

Revlon about this product:
"A new level of glossy wet color. Saturated lips with brilliant shine and vivid color. Available in 12 luscious shades. "




I got this product out of curiosity and I didn't really know what to expect. When I tried it I was a bit surprised. It looks like a lipgloss, the applicator looks like a lipgloss applicator but when applied it feels different. It feels more like a lip stain, a non sticky moisturizing lip stain. The first smell coming off this product is a bit chemical and disgusting but when it's settled it disappears. You can barely feel the product sit on your lips yet the colour is still very pigmented and shinny. I feel like this is one of those long wear lip products. 
I'm probably not going to buy more of these Revlon colorstay moisture stains but I'm happy I added these to my collection!
