The people at Glossybox were kind enough to send me a free box this month - their Natural box featuring all natural products and a biodegradable box. I ended up cancelling my subscription to Glossybox a couple of months ago because although I enjoyed it I just wasn't getting enough use out of the products and they ended up sitting in my bathroom for ages not getting used while I stuck to my old favourites. I love the rose scented lipbalm in this month's box though -it smells so nice and will definitely be going into my handbag for regular use!
I also bought the Mabelline 24 hour colour tattoo eyeshadow because a. I'm a sucker for anything that gets rave reviews on the makeup blogs I read and b. I am so lazy when it comes to makeup I will buy anything which promises I will not have to reapply too often! I ended up getting the permanent taupe colour, which was all that was left in the superdrug I went in, apart from a really skuzzy looking gold. The first time I tried it I used my fingers because I don't own an eyeshadow brush and quickly realised that wasn't going to work as I ended up looking like I'd been punched in both eyes... A £4 topshop eyeshadow brush later and I tried again - with more successful results! I have very sunken eyes so I find most eye makeup comes off really quickly, and although I would say 24 hour is an overstatement for me I definitely saw an improvement with this product compared to many I've tried in the past. The colour is nice, and although I need to work on my application techniques (must learn to blend!) I was very happy with the overall effect.
