Nhi! Yay! Please send me your mailing address to the blog email below in the contact me bar, I’ll be mailing the items on Thursday. Congrats lady!
First I need to say sorry for falling off on my posts for the last few weeks. At first I was crazy busy, and then I got slammed with the pneumonia, so I’ve been laid up in bed for a little bit. But I’m back for the most part, I’m not a hundred percent yet, but I should be soon. I hope.
I dunno bout ya’ll, but I kinda feel like the holiday sets this year are a bit lacklustre. I was interested in almost none of them. There were other holiday offerings that weren’t necessarily part of a holiday collection that I found more interesting. One of them was the Vice 2 palette from Urban Decay, which I did wind up picking up, and I’ll do a review on that soon, but this a review for the only two holiday sets that I’ve picked up so far. I may pick up another one, but like I said, I’m not really feeling anything at the moment.
Hey ladies, so you guys know how much I love GB, for some people it’s a little on the expensive side, but now for a limited time you can get 20% off your 3, 6 or 12 month sub! Details in the screenshot below.
Or, if you’re still feeling like it’s a bit too much, you can get the limited edition Gold box for 40% off with the code Gold40. And if you decide to get a one year subscription, you can get the gold box for free by using the code Gold.
I’m not sure how long these deals are gonna last, so hop to it and stay glossy ladies!
Hello Lovelies, as promised, the giveaways continue until my stash is empty (god knows when that will be, as I keep amassing more stuff almost daily. Anywhoo, this give away is my compilation of things every girl needs to make it through this years Holiday party madness. This one is going to be another short giveaway (2 wks.) you need you stuff after all, and it’s just a kit of stuff that I put together myself so here goes.
The theme of this month’s Glossybox is Holiday Romance, except…I’m not really seeing the holiday, or the romance, so I’m not sure what they’re basing this on? Anywhoo.
This is probably the most lacklustre GB I’ve gotten since I started subscribing, but I’m not really put off since I’m hoping this is just a windup and I’ll be completely floored by the Christmas and New Year’s box, right. Right??!
The deets; Glossybox is a monthly subscription service that provides you with five full and deluxe samples of makeup, beauty, tools and hair products each month for $21. They’re on the higher sub side, but they’re worth it because (for me anyway) they send more high-end and niche brands, as well as a lot of European and other foreign brands which I love. Honestly though, one of the things I love the most about GB is the packaging. They send out these really well made, sturdy boxes that can totally be reused (which I’m doing this Christmas) and the products are wrapped and layered so beautifully.
This month’s box had five items that that I guess are supposed to help you snatch (or keep ) that holiday love of your life yeah?
I missed last month’s Ipsy bag. Not quite sure why, but I had cancelled. I think I was just tired of the repeat brands and products so I let it go. I decided to resub for this month because there was an Item from Be A Bombshell cosmetics included, and it was something that I had had my eye on for a bit now. I got put on the waiting list, and from that point on, boy was it ever a mess.
The theme for this month’s bag was glam it up. The bag included a lot of really interesting stuff that could be used for going to Christmas parties, new years celebrations and the like. There were a couple of skin care items that I prayed that I wouldn’t get, and thank goodness I didn’t, but since this is Ipsy we’re talking about, most of the items were makeup. This month also saw for the first time ever, the six product bag. This was because in addition to the the usual five products, subscribers were also treated to one of four full sized EM Michelle Phan products.
New Steals from BH Cosmetics. I know nothing about those first two palettes, but I just got that 66 colour lip palette in the mail yesterday, and I have to say, if you’re someone that likes to play around with colours, or you just can’t find that right shade of whatever, you need this in your life!
They feel more like satin lipsticks than gloss even though the case says gloss, the case feels a bit flimsy and the pans could be bigger, but it’s a great bargain, and the colours lasted forever.
I made a purple colour last night that lasted through coffees, eating and whatnot, didn’t come off till I took it off hours later.
Get it ladies. I got it because the purple lippie possibilities are endless!
Still waiting for a brush Steal…

So I won a competition on Facebook sponsored by MTTO, and along with my winnings, I was the lucky recipient of a Knu Anti-Aging Serum. Instead of doing this in writing, I decided to do a video. The first (giggity!!) ever on the blog. I know it’s long, bear with me, I ramble and everything is monumentally important. Skip through what you want. The video has a product tutorial, as well as my thoughts on the serum, eye treatment and other stuff.
