OPI Mariah Carey Christmas 2013 Collection

Ohhh i’m so excited! I just found pictures of the upcoming OPI Christmas 2013 collection.  It’s full of liquid sands, reds and even a new gold top coat ( similar to Man With The Golden Gun) which is white gold and silver :D. This is a big collection with 18 polishes! EIGHTEEN! I haven’t bought an OPI in a while, with so many gorgeous Indie’s to choose from but i have an eye on a few, and i might have to add some of these to my wishlist.

On to some nice PR shots for you all to drool over like i did 🙂

August 2013 Glossybox- Highflyer

It’s that time of the month when Glossybox gets delivered to your door and you let out a little squeal of excitement. 🙂 This months theme is Highflyer, which i assume is on-the-go airplane/boat/car necessities for trips to and from holidays.  

Accoriding to Glossybox this months theme is:

” Filled with beauty goodies perfect for the girl on the go. In line with this month’s theme, we’ve handpicked hero products from around the world, from Sweden to Brazil, to help keep you looking fab during your summer travels”

Let the unveiling begin 🙂

*drum roll please*

I’ve been more excited by past boxes however i am super pleased with the Eyelash Curler, i have needed one of these for ages!

I’ll start with the order they are in, in the accompanying pamphlet. First up is:

Image

TRESemme Platinum Concentrated Treatment Shot

RRP: £1.49

Available at Superdrug, Boots, Tesco and Waitrose

What Glossybox says:

” We asked TRESemme’s Lead Uk Stylish Matthew Curtis what product could transform frizzed out and fried hair into beach goddess worthy tresses: ” Platinum Strength Instant Rescue Shot will change your hair in a way you never thought possible” “

My Opinion: I don’t really go in for all this hair care stuff, but my Mum loves hair oils and treatments so she will appreciate me passing this on to her.

Image

Jelly Pong Pong 2-IN-1 Shadow/Liner

ImageRRP: £10.50

Available at JellyPongPong.com

What Glossybox says:

” The perfect multi-tasker for travelling, this creamy 2-in-1 crayon can be used to line the eyes as well as smudged and blended an eyeshadow.”

My Opinion: I’m not too keen on the colour i recieved, it’s somewhere in between purple and brown and looks more like a dark lip liner. I will likely use it as a darker eyeshadow for going out etc. I’ve wanted to try Jelly Pong Pong for a while now so i can’t really complain.

Emite Make Up Eyelash Curler

RRP: £20 (!!)

What Glossybox says:

” Developed with professional make-up artists for their requirements, the Professional Eyelash Curler has a special curved design to suit all eye shades, without touching your make up base.” 

My Opinion: I’m really glad to have recieved an eyelash curler, especially one worth so much! I’m not so sure this can do better that one costing about £2 but we shall see. None the less, i’m totally impressed.

Eucerin Aquaphor

ImageRRP: £8.50 ( for 200ml full size)

What Glossybox says:

” Clinically proven to support the skin’s own regeneration process, this multi-purpose balm is a cult product in the US. Fans include Beyonce and Megan Fox.”

My Opinion:  I’m not going to lie, if Megan Fox endorsed eating Chicken, i would probably eat it ( i’m vegetarian). I’m a sucker for advertising that way. I’ve tried this out briefly on my elbows and with one use it does seem to be helping the skin to ‘regenerate’. I’m always in need of products like this for when i get a flare up of dry skin.

Oceane Makeup Remover Pen

Not Yet Available in the UK

What Glossybox says:

” This pen delivers the mobile, mess-and fuss-free-make-up touch-up/removal solution we have always wanted when stuck on planes, trains and automobiles.”

My Opinion: I think this a great idea, i can’t wait to try it out the next time my make up smudges. This is the sort of product i will be keeping in my handbag and using to clean up any imperfections when doing my make up.

Overall Opinion: I’ve had better from Glossybox but the eyelash curler almost makes up for it!  There is only the one product i won’t use and that’s the hair treatment.

Until next month 😉

 

OPI Autumn/Winter 2013-San Francisco Collection

For those of you who don’t already know, in September ( August in the US) OPI are releasing what is in my opinion a HUGE collection for autumn winter. What i like about the look of these is that they aren’t all ‘red’ like a lot of winter polish collections. I think these shades are definetely suitable for the season, so i won’t feel so bad about packing away my neons and pastels. Here is a sneak peak:

The names and descriptions are as follows

A-Piers To Be Tan – I shore do like this chocolaty tan.
Dining Al Frisco – Just feast your eyes on this fresh air blue.
Haven’t The Foggiest – Can’t tell you why I love this misty gray….I just do.
Peace & Love & OPI – This holographic sage and eggplant is far out!
Keeping Suzi At Bay – There’s no holding back this assertive navy blue.
Incognito In Sausalito – You better keep this almost black blue under wraps.
Lost On Lombard – Oh garn-el! I’m all turned around.
I knead Sour-Dough – Are you bready to wear this toasty warm brown?
Muir Muri On The Wall – This trailblazing plum is the fairest of them all.

First Date At The Golden Gate – You and me and this shimmery ruby make three.

Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! (Liquid Sand Shade) – Dog-gone it…fetch me that textured matte blue.
