May GlossyBox 2014 // 50 years of Superdrug

Hello there!

I actually didn't renew my Glossy-box subscription last year, but when I saw they were doing a box celebrating 50 years of Superdrug, I thought it would be a good reason to start subscribing again! (Not that I needed that much convincing to do it!) 

So here is a look inside as to what I received. I have to say I was super happy with all of the products I received and they are all products which I would totally use! *HAPPY DANCE*

 Simple Kind to skin- Illuminating Radiance Cream

 Collection Bronze Glow Mosaic - 2 Radiant

 Eylure Volume No. 107 False eyelashes

 B. Sheer Conditioning Lipstick - 017 Petal

 2true Pro 3D Candy Cassis Nail art

Garnier Oil Beauty Lotion sample & Ghost Eclipse perfume sample


I was very happy when the first thing I saw was the Eylure Volume No. 107 False eyelashes! Well...anything else after the eyelashes was a bonus!! I haven't actually tried any B. lipsticks before and this shade 017 Petal is a gorgeous shade.

I am super excited to try the 2true Pro 3D Candy Cassis Nail art, as I have wanted to try for quite some time. However I am a little afraid as to how messy they are going to be when using them, but if they work they will look really cool!

Overall I LOVED all of the products and items in May's Glossybox and it was interesting to read into the history and background in Superdrug, since it is once of my go-to shops for beauty and skincare products!

False Eyelash Haul #1

Hello there!

After my recent on-line spending spree from, I thought I would return from my absence with a (in my opinion) rather good fake eyelash haul! 

Hope you all enjoy!

Left: Katy Perry by Eylure Colour Pop Ka-Pow! Purple £3.23
"A stunning and wearable new lash collection from Katy Perry & Eylure"
I saw these lashes by Katy Perry quite some time ago, but they looked a wee bit extreme for my liking and were a little expensive when they first came out. However Superdrug were selling the for £3.23, which I thought was brilliant! What I am going to do with them is the question I am now asking myself! They are crazy long and layered, but I think they would be great for fancy dress or Halloween! The purple colour in these lashes is not super bright, but as they say it is more of a 'colour pop', which I actually think is really nice.

Right: Katy Perry by Eylure Colour Pop Ka-Boom! Blue £3.23
This pair are the blue ones and I have to say they aren't super colourful as the there is black mixed in with the blue to make it subtle. I suppose these lashes could be worn on nights out to complement a certain eye-look, however I think I will be keeping them for fancy dress or if I fancy doing a colourful make-up look, which I would actually be super excited to do!

Left: Eylure Miss Flicklash 107F £6.49
"The false lashes with the built in eyeliner flick!"
I was very intrigued with these lashes and it was actually my first time seeing these 'flick' lashes. They sound like a useful and a complete time save in my opinion. However I have seen quite a few mixed reviews on these, so fingers crossed they work out well!

Right: Ardell Fashion Lashes 131 Black £2.75
These lashes are a new find for me and are by the company Ardell. I have gotten used to wearing Eylure lashes, but I thought it would be good to try a new brand and see how they compare! This pair is a very subtle, simple and quite similar to the usual Eylure Girls Aloud eyelashes.

JINNYlash False Eyelashes, Disco Diva £0.99
OMG! I just couldn't resist buying these lashes! Firstly, they were only 99p! Secondly, they are super gorgeous and sparkly long lashes! I thought these would be great for some crazy eye-make up tutorials or even for fancy dress or indeed Halloween!  I have never even heard of this company before, but I have a feeling that they are going to be discontinued or at least Superdrug is getting rid of them, as they were all on clearance for 99p!!
