This month's box  has been my favourite in the past few months for sure, even though the Box itself has been shipped after actual Valentines day ??!!!  ...yes I know !  However How can you not love the packaging?!! It is so cute and kissable,It just made it feel more special and fun! ;)  A definite thumbs up!
This 14th of February theme comes as usual with Glossy magazine which I love to read and a little extra - '' Win trip worth £1000 '' Competition postcard, all you have to do is kiss back of this postcard with your favourite lipstick and write the name of the person that kiss is for an upload to #GlossyboxKisses ! How amazing is that!!
 Here are the products that I've received.

FULL SIZE PRODUCT

  For me and for many other I am sure this was the star of the show!! I must say I  Love love love Ciate polishes! Definitely a great product and absolutely gorgeous colour Red hot chili !!
FULL SIZE PRODUCT
NV Chunky Lip Crayon '' is perfect for glamorous girls on the go  and can be used day or night to add an instant''
 This Glossybox premiere its AMAZING!! I'm the girl who's always looking for the next best thing in lip colour, and I believe I've found it! This little crayon of amazingness glides colour on, and brings soft moisture with it. My lips couldn't possibly feel dry while wearing this miracle!
FULL SIZE PRODUCT
Maybelline New York Big Eyes Mascara ''Double the drama with Maybelline's first eye- opening double brush mascara. Built with specific upper and lower lash brushes. Big Eyes Mascara produces an all-around eye- opening effect ''
I think that the concept for this product is brilliant. It's great to have the second wand for the lower lashes. I was surprised with how good this mascara was. I have used expensive mascaras in the past but this was just as good. Couldn't be happier :)

Wow !! Usually I never write review after the first use, but I found this product amazing and it worked so well!! I will definitely buy a full size product no doubt!!
 And it's also cruelty-free and doesn't contain a bunch of un-natural chemicals. Brilliant!! :)
SAMPLE
Nougat London Sparkling Body Shimmer ''This body lotion with mallow extract, vitamin E and wheatgerm enriched oil will leave your skin luxurious perfumed with a hint of sparkle''
This stuff smells good enough to eat!!! The shimmer particles reflect the light and make your skin look radiant and glowing. It leaves my skin feeling velvety smooth, smelling and looking great.

Garnier Moisture Match Ultra Hydrating Rich Cream

Posted by A small Cat at 21:42 3 comments
                                             Goodby dry...

'' Thanks to a perfect blend of nourishing and ultra-light oils, Goodbye Dry comforts your skin while delivering intense moisture replenishment in a flash. Non-greasy and quick to absorb, enriched with Camelia oil, Omega 3 & 6 and Shea butter, known for their intensive nourishing properties. Skin feels soothed and nourished all day.''

I’m always on the look out for different moisturizers and every time I spot a new ''budget friendly'' one, I can’t resist myself from picking it up. The weather changed and gone a bit colder now here in UK  and as we all know skin changes from season to season too and so should our skin care routine.
What does my skin need most in winter ?  Moisturize, moisturize, and  moisturize some more!!
 And here comes Garnier to the rescue creating 5 different moisturisers for 5 different skin types,brilliant!!
Although their range has been for sale for a quite while now i have never tried it before ( don't know why ?? ) ,until a PROMOTION caught my eye  ;)   ( currently on sale at Superdrug for  £2.98
I pick up the Garnier Moisture Match Goodby dry Ultra hydrating Rich Cream as i felt my face needed some serious hydration,and i couldn't pick better :)
Even though I don’t suffer from very dry skin,this cream left my face feeling fresh and hydrated,exactly what i needed. It absorbed beautifully,leaving my skin bouncy and soft.
This luxurious pink coloured cream soothes and comforts skin. It does have a slightly thicker than usual texture but it’s not heavy on the skin. It also delivers a much needed hydration boost which dry and tired looking skin requires.

 Moisturizing your skin is the fastest remedy to hydrate your skin and promptly mending the dehydrated look and feel of dry skin,but most important , You need to hydrate not only skin from outside, but from inside too !!!
In order to have sustained hydrated healthy skin Drink lots of water!!! :)
Do you normally change your skin-care routine with the change of seasons?

 Have you tried any of the Garnier Moisture Match Range ?

REVIEW : Rimmel ''Wake me up'' concealer in Ivory

Posted by A small Cat at 14:37 6 comments


"Our first full coverage concealer that visibly reawakens and illuminates under the eyes. Completely conceals spots and other blemishes. Instant anti-fatigue effect with peptides and a Vitamin Moisturizing Complex." - Rimmel London

 This is the product that I always look at, at the drugstore, but for some reason I never end up picking it up. However, I run out of my Collection 2000 concealer ( and i could NOT live without one ) and found this Rimmel Wake Me Up to be on sale, so I figured now is the time to try it out :)
The concealer is true to it's shade in the bottle upon application and is very easy to apply.
The texture of this concealer is very silky, almost boarding on the line of slippery. In terms of coverage, it is not full coverage, more like a sheer to light , which is why I use it for BRIGHTENING, not actual concealing ( as i do tend to have quite dark circles ) however it is definitely buildable without being cakey.
I did notice that throughout the day this concealer tends to crease and settle into fine lines even when set with powder.

I wouldn’t recommend this concealer for under the eyes if you have really dark circles, but I would definitely recommend it for redness and pigmentation, however, I would not use this on spots and blemishes, as the product contains brightening and satiny illuminating finish that contains speckles of shimmer and it would make your spots stand out even more.

Have you ever tried the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer? Did you like it?
