I’ve lost track a little of posts here and there, so we’re a little behind here on the website compared to the YouTube channel.
Here is September’s GlossyBox unboxing, and the Catch Up:
The stand out product for me this box was the facial oil, despite not liking the scent hugely – it’s a bit too overpowering, as my personal preference is for relatively low scent facial products. It still makes me skin feel wonderfully moisturised and pampered, and has lasted well into the winter months since it is actually a full size product in ml, we just received one in slightly less fancy packaging than the retail version!
And then onto October’s GlossyBox unboxing and Catch Up:
In October it was very interesting to finally try a Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette; while I have some of their other products, I have never tried eyeshadow and they seem like a good find! Similarly priced to MUA, they have better bright colours in my opinion, whereas MUA is more of a go to brand for neutrals and shimmers. I also loved the Lord & Berry eyebrow pencil, though it was a shame I didn’t get one with a spoolie on the end!
That’s it for this set, November’s unboxing and Catch Up will be up soon, the Catch Up is being edited now!
Here’s the latest YouTube and GlossyBox round up, the August unboxing…
And then the catch up a few weeks later…
This box was sadly a rare disappointment! I usually find one or two items in the box are good enough, and cost enough to make each individual box worth the price of admission. This time I only really liked the SportFX face mist and the travel Batiste dry shampoo – whose combined price was only £7.49. I hope I have better luck with the September box, which has already been dispatched, and should be here soon.
So little life update, we’ve been very busy and stressed with lots of different things recently. My other half was made redundant which sucks, and then started a new job! We had a lot of different things to do to in quite succession: my brothers wedding, a get together of some friends moving away from the UK, celebratory dinners for finishing exams for other people in the fam. So the website has gotten a little left by the wayside, despite the fact that videos have in fact still been being produced, both on my StudiousOctopus beauty YouTube, and the And So Begins gaming YouTube that I’m part of!
So here’s a few of my recent Beauty Videos:
And as a nice catch up on And So Begins, we’ve been playing…
And other good stuff!
So, now that all that hectic-ness is over and done with, hopfully I’ll be back to more regular website maintenance. Until Next Time!
I managed to squeeze in a last minute haul at the end of the year, snapping up a few goodies from e.l.f. cosmetics and getting a nice set of items free!
This is my first time trying out buying e.l.f. from the new all in one website – they used to sell in the UK through a redistributor, but no more! They did come directly from America, so it took a little longer to arrive, but not any longer than you’d expect. Everything was nicely packaged and intact, which is awesome since some makeup can be quite fragile and it came quite a distance. I got a mix of essential restocks and some new things to try, but you’ll see that in the video above!
My next video will be the latest GlossyBox, but I’m also planning on doing another empties, and doing empties a little more frequently – so that when I do them they’re a little shorter and more watchable. Until Next Time!
Just a quick tidying up post for the end of 2016, with links to December’s initial un-boxing of super cool new shiny things…
…And then the Catch Up, where I give a more indepth look back after using them!
Overall the MDMflow lipstick was my favourite item in the box, it definitely stood out from all the rest, the brow powder was certainly an experience, and as usual I got a Nail Polish I might use once!
Looking forward to the new year GlossyBox, it looks to be full of things to start the year as we mean to go on – putting good things on our faces. Until Next Time!
I thought I’d posted the November GlossyBox video, and it turns out I hadn’t! Bleugh! So here it is…
I had such high hopes – look at my smiling, hopeful face! Sadly, I think a lot of the items in this box, while not awful, were not super wow. Highlight of the box was the brush, so soft, such blending!
Next up is the neat “pick your look” Sugar or Spice December box, and I’ve already picked December – totally looking forward to that, and it should be here soon, since GB is always pretty early in December (otherwise no one would get it around the Christmas shipping dates >.<)
I just got finished recording my latest empties video, this is all the stuff I used up in Spring and Summer of 2016! There’s a whole bunch of stuff, and next time I think I’ll probably do it sooner and have a shorter video.
