Haul: Hourglass Ambient Blush Palette, Liquid Lipsticks, Ambient Lighting Powders

I just got a few Hourglass items in the mail from SpaceNK so decided to do a small haul and collection post on my Hourglass make up!

The main item I ordered was the Ambient Lighting Blush palette. Behold its glory!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
This is, I believe, a SpaceNK exclusive, not that lots of places stock Hourglass in the UK. I have been lusting over the palette since I first saw it on a random German shopping channel blog, and also when it hit the VIB exclusive in Sephora!

Memebox Special 44 Very Berry: Unboxing and Review!

Sticking to my unshakeable resolve of getting all of the food themed Memeboxes, we have the Very Berry box today! Food boxes have never let me down yet and they are my absolute downfall with products!
Memebox shop!
Lets have a look and see what wonderful treats the Very Berry box has in store for us!

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick Bond Girl Review: Lip and Hand Swatch

The second of my individual lip and hand swatches of the Matte Revolution lipsticks by Charlotte Tilbury. This time in Bond Girl, a delicious rose pink!

This may have made me feel like a Bond Girl if my skin wasn't so rubbish right now and I wasn't getting ready for work! Bond Girls don't work, they just *ahem* hang out with James.

Benefit Cheeky Sweet Spot Blush Palette: Review and Swatches

When I first saw this gift set I fell in love with the idea, a fabulous selection of Benefit's blushes altogether. However, I decided against buying it as for some reason I assumed it was a cardboard palette! (Perhaps due to the cardboard box it came in? Who knows!?) I don't like cardboard palettes as they are not durable and look scruffy very quickly in my collection! As soon as I realised this was a tin I had to get it!

The attention to detail on the tin is wonderful!

Urban Decay Full Frontal Lip Stash: Review and Swatches!

I am a big fan of the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks as the formula is very creamy and pigmented. I don't have very many as I feel I have the colours covered in other brands, but when I saw this Full Frontal lipstick stash I had to grab it from Debenhams. I did preorder it but there were a lot on the shelves when I went in to pick it up so I don't think a pre order was necessary.

Outer box and inner packaging are the same design.

Memebox New Release: Innisfree Superbox!

There is a lot of buzz about the new Memebox, as it is a long awaited brand box of a highly reputable company, Innisfree! I will definitely be picking this one up to go alongside by Skinfood brand box!

It will be available on its own for $29 or in a bundle with CutiePieMarzia2 for just $13 more plus express shipping. You can still use L40M or 810QNN to get $5 off any order until the end of October, so just until Friday.

Hope this is as good as it looks!
Happy shopping! Reviews of Benefits Cheeky Sweet Spot Blush palette and Urban Decay Full Frontal Lip Stash later tonight!

Memeshop Product Review: Wonderuci Cacao Brightening Mask

I decided to do a more in depth review on this product as I loved it so much after I received it in my Cacao Memebox I decided to buy two more when it went on sale in the Memeshop! (still on sale!)
WondeRuci Cacao Brightening Mask
Read on to find out why I decided to buy not one, but two more!

Memebox LuckyBox 10: Unboxing and Review

It feels like I haven't got a Memebox in ages! I think its because although I liked Cute wishlist 3, many of the products were not for me so I sold the box almost in its entirety so never felt like I had a new box to play with! Today I do!

Lucky Box
Lucky Boxes are a special type of box, which contains only the best products from past Memeboxes, so it is in effect a box of repeats. People who have lots of boxes before may not like Lucky Boxes, but they do give a good opportunity to get past products you have loved or products you may have missed!

Memebox New Release: Lucky Box Bundle 12-14

A new Lucky Box bundle up for grabs, this time including 12, 13 and 14! If you are a fan of Lucky Boxes this way you have all three on order and only pay one shipping charge. They still ship one per month as usual though, through standard shipping.

I just got Lucky Box 10 and will be posting my review later! I am tempted by these as Lucky 10 is gorgeous! These codes are still valid for $5 off! L40M or 810QNN

Lucky Box Bundle

Memebox New Release: Garden of Eden and Hot and Cool Cosmetics

Two new boxes up at VIP prices today. Hot and Cool cosmetics, and Garden of Eden. Hoping for snake and apple products, as well as fig if we are sticking to the traditional story!

Have fun! Also we have one more week to use L40M or 810QNN for $5 off!

Click to buy these boxes!
I cannot link but a quick search of 'garden' or 'hot' should help you get there as they are available to non VIP's also!

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick Love Liberty Review: Lip and Hand Swatch

As requested by a lovely lady on Facebook I have started my Charlotte Tilbury individual lip swatch with Love Liberty, one of her matte revolution shades! This is a lovely raspberry shade with a matte finish. One thing I have found so far with CT is that they last so well, even through food. I have just eaten a bacon sandwich and although it isn't as neat as when I first applied it, its definitely still there!

In the bullet
I would say the colour is very true to the bullet and is opaque in one application.

Memebox New Release: CutePieMarzia 3 Collaboration

A Memebox on a Saturday! Thats pretty new! This time it is the third Memebox by CutiePieMarzia. This is way better than her second box but still not sure whether I will be purchasing. Links to the box and its contents are in the pictures.


Tempted by the Ice Cream handcream, the Berristure mask and the lollipop soap purely for the cute factor. The pore strips and the nail polish put me off slightly. Still not decided on this one! Let me know if you decide to get it!

Haul: MAC, NARS, Guerlain, Urban Decay, Marc Jacobs

I have had a few random parcels come in over the past few weeks, from the MAC Matte Lip Launch, the FeelUnique £10 off deals, and a couple of Facebook sales too. None of them really warranted their own post so I kept them all for one big one!

Scary reflection on the Marc Jacobs palette for you all!

Haul: Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks - Matte Revolution and K.I.S.S.I.N.G

Martha and Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

Yeah I have a problem...

Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks
So in my last Charlotte Tilbury haul I picked up two lipsticks, Matte Revolution Red Carpet Red and K.I.S.S.I.N.G Night Crimson. I was so impressed by both, they both had great pigmentation, looked beautiful and had great staying power. Red Carpet Red stuck around through a Thai curry! So I managed to get myself a little casual job at the gym I go to taking a fitness class on an evening to fit in with my current full time job, which now means I get my gym membership for free. So I guess I decided to spend 4 months gym subs on lipstick like a sensible girl.

Memebox New Release: Skinfood and TheFaceShop brand boxes!

Super excited about the Skinfood box as a brief look through their skincare makes me excited. won't be getting TheFaceShop personally but they have some fun things too!

This link will take you to the store. These boxes are currently on VIP prices but I cannot link you to them, but if you perhaps put Skinfood and TheFaceShop into the search bar you may find them at the VIP prices :)

Click to try to find them!
Happy shopping, these codes will still work until the end of October! 
L40M or 810QNN

Charlotte Tilbury lipstick haul up later!

Memebox Superbox 61 My Cute Wishlist 3: Unboxing and Review

Another day, another Memebox! This time my first in the Cute Wishlist series, number 3! Number 1 was fairly universally adored, and Number 2 was universally abhorred. Okay I probably exaggerated on both accounts there but you get my drift. This one isn't getting a great reception but I am not sure I agree with that! Read on for my verdict!

 Memebox shop!

Memebox New Release: Cleopatra, Empress' Secrets and Wonderwoman!

Three fabulous sounding boxes, Cleopatra comes up so much when they mention donkey/goat milk so I am hoping for lots of milk products and no make up! I also ordered Empress' Secret as it sounds like wonderful skin care!

Here is a link to the three new boxes, some are already sold out but I hope you can get some and they always restock. If the link doesn't work you can always search for the names in the search bar!

Click for new boxes!
Happy shopping! Use L40M or 810QNN for $5 off!

Haul: Christmas Lush!

Christmas Lush is the best Lush I always find! I love sweet smells and the Christmas collection always smells like marzipan, sweets and all sorts of delicious things. I always stock up before Christmas and in the post Christmas sales and I tend to be set for most things until the next Christmas!
I tend to pick up any gifts I like the boxes of, shower gel and soaps after Christmas when they are half price, a little cheeky I know!

Haul: Charlotte Tilbury - Filmstar Bronze and Glow, Lipsticks, Blush, Magic Cream

So I have finally got around to my Charlotte Tilbury haul which I have had for about two weeks. The reason for the delay is my original Filmstar Bronze and Glow came completely shattered on the Highlight shade which was pretty sad to open! CT did sort it out and quickly despatched another one along with some samples of their foundation so I am definitely pleased with the customer service they offer!

Stunning packaging!
So sad thoughts over, click through to see what I picked up!

New Memebox Release: Collaborations with Vagabond Youth, CutiePieMarzia and Samantha Schuerman

So Memebox just put up these three boxes with a sale price of $9 off. They only appear to be available in the bundle of three, which is a bit disappointing. They also haven't unboxed them yet.

I personally won't be buying until they are unboxed, but if you are interested use the picture below to head on over to them, and as always use L40M or 810QNN for $5 off!

Memebox Global Shop

Memebox New Release: 3 x Colour Box deal, Electric Brights, Pastel Hues and Jewel Tones

Three make up boxes this morning. I'm not really into Korean make up but this is a crazy good deal and I am so tempted. You can buy each box separately for $15 + $7 shipping, OR get all three for $30 + $7 express shipping. So $37 for 3 boxes with 4 full size make up products each. Very very tempted.
You can of course also get the $5 off on top of that using L40M or 810QNN
Click to look at these new boxes
Happy shopping! I am finally home during the day to get some pictures of my new items so should have a few more posts soon!

Memebox New Release: Pumpkin Pie and 1st Anniversary Box

Two new boxes. Currently only available for VIP buyers but they may be available through the search bar to other buyers also. I truly have no idea!

Memebox Global Shop
As I vowed to get all food boxes I will be getting Pumpkin Pie. That orange lipstick is a worry though for me! :D
Codes for $5 off are L40M and 810QNN

Memebox Special 39 Cafe Box: Unboxing and Review

So over the weekend my postman brought me the Cafe box and I am absolutely in love with it. Usually I am happy with my Memeboxes with 1/2 items that maybe I would not have personally chosen but are useable, but with this one I love everything in it!

Memebox Global Shop
A few people were a little disappointed that this was not more coffee based, and I understand their concerns. The picture does seem very heavily coffee based with the beans, and the description did mention caffeine and 'waking up' items. However, as a 'cafe' box, with sweets, treats, drinks and desserts I personally find the curation of this box absolutely spot on, whilst understanding the disappointment about the coffee. Hopefully Memebox will come out with a 'Coffee' box to solve this!

Haul: Cath Kidston, Penhaligons, Emma Bridgewater and White Stuff

So this weekend was a busy one! I went shopping in York and then went out for my Grandma's birthday meal with my family, who we don't see very often.

I picked up a few bits in York and got a lovely gift from my Uncle too!

70ml Eau De Parfum, 100ml Eau De Parfum, Talc and Bath Oil
I went to McArthur Glenn in York to go to the Penhaligons outlet as I adore the Artemesia scent.

New Memebox Release: Mask 7, Make Up Edition 3 and Brightening and Correct

Todays new boxes are up! Told you Mask 7 would be imminent and if you liked Snow White the brightening could be for you! VIP prices up also!

Click to go to the sale
As always use L40M or 810QNN for $5 off and let me know what you decide to grab

Memebox Special 38 My Mask Box: Unboxing and Review

So this is the 5th Mask Box edition which I grabbed in a restock a couple of weeks ago. I haven't ordered previous mask editions but I was keen to try the mask editions after seeing unboxings on other blogs. Face masks are one of those things that will always get used so I was keen to grab this one!

Memebox Global Shop

So it arrived yesterday with my SuperBox Yoghurt Box and I am excited to try out some of the different masks included in this box.

Memebox Superbox 56 Yogurt Cosmetics: Unboxing and Review

Against my better judgement I have used the Memebox spelling of yogurt for the title, but will refer to it as yoghurt from now on as my British brain may explode if I don't!

Memebox Global Shop

This is a superbox which guarantees all full size products, but it was a lower priced superbox of $23 whereas usually they are closer to $29. This is probably why although the products are all full sized 3 are 'one use only' products. At the time of purchasing I was really yearning for the milk box (which I later got in a restock) so was hoping this would be as good as that!

BeautyNetKorea Order: Missha, Tonymoly, Holika Holika

So this is actually my first BeautyNetKorea order (I mistakenly thought my order from Cosmetic Love was from BNK as I am such an expert...)

It got here in roughly a week from Korea and I ordered from their eBay store.

The main reason I decided to order! TonyMoly Panda Sleeping Pack

Memebox New Release: Oh My Lips, Cleanse and Tone and My Pouch Essentials

Don't think I will be picking up these boxes but they are up for $20 'early bird' discount which appears to be the replacement for the VIP presale. Makes sense as that was never limited to VIP's anyway! As always the codes for discount are: L40M or 810QNN

Click to check out these boxes
Happy Shopping! I think I have two memeboxes at the PO so hopefully my brother can grab those on the way home! If not will definitely be putting up my Beauty Net Korea order later.

Memebox Princess Edition 3 Rapunzel: Unboxing and Review

So back to lovely Princess boxes and the last of my Princess bundle, Rapunzel! I need hair help, so anything this can help me with I will take!

MemeBox Shop
So lets see whats in this box!

Memebox Global 15: Unboxing and Review

Just to break up the Princess Train I have a quick unboxing and review of Global 15. I say quick as a few of the products I knew from spoilers I would not be using so I am going to pass them onto some girls in the Memebox UK Facebook group and want to get them posted ASAP, so this is going up first but Rapunzel will be up later tonight!

Link to Global 18 currently available

I grabbed this box in a restock but Global 18 is still available in the Memebox Shop.

Memebox Princess Edition 2 Sleeping Beauty: Unboxing and Review

As these boxes came express in a bundle I got all three today (and an order from BeautyNetKorea, yes the real one not the pretend one I spoke about last time haha) so today was a good Korean Beauty Day!
Memebox Shop

This box is, as suggested by the name, full of products to use overnight. I like my sleep so these products will get plenty of chance to get absorbed into my face/body/hair/whatever!

Memebox Princess Edition 1 Snow White: Unboxing and Review

I was quite new to Memebox when I saw these Princess boxes and knew I had to get them. As a pale girl, with waist length hair that needs help and a love of sleep how could I pass up Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty themed boxes. The descriptions lent themselves to boxes of brightening skincare, hair care and night time treatments and these boxes have not disappointed!

Memebox Shop

So first up, Snow White!

Memebox New Release: Dirty Gal and Hair Salon

Two new Memeboxes up for VIP release, this time Dirty Gal has $6 off, and Hair Salon $3 off.  Dirty Gal sounds fab! I am hoping for mud masks and snail gunk, lovely! Also bird poo is apparently big in Korea so who knows what it might contain! Definitely going to be ordering it.

Click to get to the VIP sale

As always you can use either of these two codes to get $5 off your order!

I will be getting the 3 Princess boxes later today, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White so will have reviews of those if I can get good enough pictures! Its so hard when it gets dark at about 5pm!

Haul: Illamasqua Lipstick, Blush and Cream Eyeshadow

So my love affair with Illamasqua continues! I adore all of their products I have received so far, from mattifying primers to their amazing range of matte lipsticks. So when I got a nice tax refund I thought I would grab some bits!

Illamasqua always packages in gorgeous black
So if you're ready for another terrible swatch haul, the read on!

Memebox New Release: While You Were Sleeping, City Girl: Seoulites and Footcare!

MAC Haul: Lipstick, Blush and Mini Pigments.

Whose ready for a haul with terrible swatches? I hope you are.

So recently Debenhams had 10% off beauty, so considering MAC never goes on offer I decided to get a few bits I was after. I also then bought some things from the MAC online store that were not available in Debenhams, the travel sized mini pigments as I had swatched them in a MAC store and they are gorgeous.

All my goodies together!

Click below for more information and swatches!

Memebox New Release: Apple Mojito, Black out and Petit Treasures

3 Mini Boxes for your consideration.

Not there is NO VIP pricing on these so no benefit to buying early. I willbe getting the value set though as they all sound lovely!

Memebox New Release: Empties and Green Food

Empties is a bit of an odd title, BUT they asked on Facebook for products people had used up and people posted pictures of their empty pots. I assume this box is from a selection of those items.

Green food is fairly self explanatory. Not sure whether I will be ordering these yet, hoping for some new October codes first!
Edit to add in a 6 digit code, 810QNN!

Click to get access to the VIP sale of these boxes.

Happy shopping! Will have some make up order reviews and swatches up later!
