You Beauty

It's the time of month when I show you what I got in my beauty box. First up I did want to mention that I did have some trouble ordering my box which I have never had before but this month the selections opened up at 7am (previously it had been midnight) but with all the problems I didn't actually manage to get onto the page to order till after 8 which was quite frustrating.

So onto my picks this month, first up I chose the MeMeMe lip and cheek tint. I have used a similar product a few years ago but I had never bought another when I ran out. This gives a nice colour to your lips or cheeks and is easy to use but it does smell pretty strong. This has a rrp of £5.50 on the website. I tried out the tint on my lips and here it is, its a nice shade but doesn't have very long staying power. I think this works much better on the cheeks but is nice if you want a nice red lip that isn't too over the top.

My second choice was the Crabtree and Evelyn nail polish which I got in the most gorgeous shade, apple/rouge sublime. I used this the day it came and I can say it's a dream to apply and so shiny once it's on and dry. This polish is definitely something I would buy again as I think it's very good quality. This has a rrp of £6 so not the cheapest polish you can buy but it is well worth the money.

I was disappointed by the added extras this month, the first was a collagen gold drink. I opened this smelt it and poured it straight down the sink! I smells so bad and looks even worse. This is not something I would ever buy.

The second extra was a sample of cowshed night serum, I did use this but as it's an oil it left my skin greasy and an hour later it still hadn't soaked in so again not something I would look to buy. I must say the day after my skin felt very soft but it hadn't helped my dry skin patches, this might work for some of you but not me.

  1. I love the look of the tint and the nail polish. The shade of red is perfect! I don't think £6 is bad for a Crab Tree and Evelyn product; a lot of their stuff is quite expensive and really good quality. xx
