Glamour Spring Beaty Edit

This month i treated myself to the Latest in Beauty Glamour box I've had these before and i find they always include great products for a great price. This box was £16.99 with free p&p, now i did have some issues with this as they had sent me a discount code which i used but it then added p&p on top and made the box more expensive than i would have been without a discount code. I did phone the helpline but being honest i found they very unhelpful and a little abrupt. I emailed and tweeted then and they refunded me the difference which was great but I'm still confused how adding a discount code can make something more expensive!

So what do you get inside the box....
First up in the box is the Moroccanoil hydrating hair mask. This is a full size product at 75ml and i have found this online for £9 so for me its a higher end hair treatment than i usually use but i can't wait to give it a try.

Next was the Nuxe Crème Fraiche de Beauté Mask, this retails on their website at £18.50. I tried this straight away as my face can get very dry and i had read good things about this however at first it didn't seem to work for me. I found it seemed to lump up on my skin and rub into clumps. However i tried it again a few days later and had a much better experience with it, it massaged in well and left my skin soft and smooth. 

Also included was the Revlon colour stay gel envy nail polish and diamond top coat.I hadn't seen these before so i was excited to try them. I was sent the shade full house which is a lovely pale blue. I needed to re paint my nails so decided to give this a try and i wish i hadn't it was streaky and after in had dried it only lasted about 30 minutes before it smudged and chipped, then in the evening when i had my hands in water is started to peel away from my nail. I took it off less than 24 hours after i had put it on and it had already stained my nails! If you want my advise don't waste your money on this.

A product i was certain i wouldn't use was the Beautyuk brow kit. I have never used anything on my brows before but when this came i thought i might as well give it a try. And although i felt like i resembled Helga from Hey Arnold! once I'd used this it was really easy to use and with practise i think this is something that i could use in the future. The is only £3.99 which is a great price for the product.

I was really excited to try this next product as it claims to be a non sticky gloss. The Rimmel Oh My Gloss lip gloss claims to be a non-sticky and lightweight formula which i couldn't disagree more with! I love the look of gloss but i hate the sticky finish you get with it, i tried this straight away hoping for a non sticky gloss but it failed me. This shade is twinkle twinkle and it looked really nice on however it was super sticky and that is just a massive no no for me. 

Another product i was keen to try was the Model Co cheek and lip rouge in Just Peachy. I really love this it goes on your cheeks really well and you can build it up well on your lips too. It looks quite dark however its much lighter when you use it. I have tried it on my cheeks and lips and i think i will get just as much use out of it for my cheeks as i will for my lips. Its a beautiful light peach colour on your lips with is perfect for everyday wear.

The last full sized item in the box was the Kiko long lasting stick eyeshadow which i was sent in shade 05. I didn't use this as an eyeshadow but instead as a liner and it worked really well and the colour goes really well with my eye colour. Its super soft and easy to apply too.

Lastly i received a sample of L'Eau Couture by Elie Saab. This isn't my favourite fragrance as its a bit too floral for my liking but I'm sure the sample will get used up pretty soon anyway.

This box is definitely worth its money and it gives you a great chance to try some new products or ones you wouldn't usually buy for yourself.
