Carmine Beauty Box - Part 2

Hey Guys, So here is a quick review on the Daniel Sandler Eyeshadow in Peach from my Carmine Beauty Box.
I really liked the colour of this eyeshadow and its pegmentation was perfect it lasted all day and evening on my eyelids without using a primer (I did use a concealer) Sorry overall I give this a thumbs up! Would I pay over £10 for it? (The rrp price) I dont think so. Altho it stays on long and the colour is gorgeous I dont think it has much over any other eyeshadow at a cheaper price.

So here is a pic for you so you can see the colour
*Eyeliner used is Liquid Liner in Black by Boots 17

Carmine Beauty Box Product Reviews - Part 1

So as promised but a few hrs late! lol Here is my reviews so far of my Carmine Beauty Box Products.

First up is the Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream which was a trial size of 30ml. Nothing special with the packaging abit boring really as I like pretty packaging. This hand cream is 98.8% natural and has not been tested on animals which is great! I didnt like the smell of this hand cream I found it very overpowering and it smelt quite surgical to me but as it says on the tin it is super moisturising! Only a very small amount is needed otherwise it does make you hands very greasy.
Final Verdict: I wouldnt buy this product, I didnt find it very special at all! Sorry Balance Me :(

Next up is the Caudalie Pairs Vinosource Quenching Sorbet-Creme, wow thats a mouthfull! 

This also was a trial size product at 10ml. The smell is very gentle which is good and the cream glides on the skin nice and easy and doesnt leave you skin greasy at all but does leave your face feeling perfectly moisturised. 
Final Verdict: I think this is on my "Must Buy" List as this is perfect for my skin (My skin type is normal)

Next is the full size 9ml Nail Repair in Natural by Trind. Another great product from the box. This made my nails feel so strong and also filled any ridges. I really noticed a mega improvement in my nails, im so happy with this product and will definately be buying once its run out!

I will be reviewing the other 2 products withing the next couple of days so dont forget to check back!

Hope I didnt ramble on too much :-) Let me know your thoughts on these products if any of you have ever used them

I've been keeping a secret......

Sorry!! I have been keeping a secret from u all! I have been carrying on with my Weight Watchers & the Jimpness pills but didnt want to let u all know as it would put more pressure on me to try even harder and I would have just quit! lol So anyways I weighed myself today in boots and I am now... (drum roll please) .......... 10st8lbs!!!!!! I have lost 9lbs in 2 weeks!! How amazing is that! I am actually feeling really sexy and very proud of myself!! It seems like Jimpness may have helped. Gooooooo me!!

Hope ur all staying happy and well! Will be reviewing some Carmine Beauty Box products this evening so check back! xxxxxxxx

Carmine Beauty Box!!!

Yes its here!!!! My Carmine Beauty Box has arrived and I am sooooo happy!! I will be writing reviews on the actual products inside as I try each one!

The packaging - I love the little black box, very sexy! If I had to be picky id say its not very easy 2 open the lid but ur not paying for the little black box but whats inside!
Once opened its even more sexy, all wrapped with tissue paper and a little bow, it feels like christmas!!

On top of the tissue paper you receive a Carmine Card which details all the products in your box, what they are used for and also discount codes for purchasing the products. 

So in my box I received
- Daniel Sandlers Eye Delight in Peach (Full Size) which retails at around £11 this eyeshadow can be applied wet or dry, cannot wait to give this a try and let u know my thoughts!
-  Frat Boy All-in-one Shadow/blush (Full Size) which retails around £17 so just this product is worth more than your subscription! This is so cute! The box even has its own little mirror in the lid.
- Trind Nail Repair Natural (Full Size) which retails around £13 so you really are getting a bargain out of this subscription! 
- Caudalie Quenching Sorbet Cream (Trial Size) This is an intensive moisturising and smells gorgeous!!
- Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream (Trial Size)
So for a quick review so far...

Pros - Sexy Box, Great looking items, Nice amount of items, price of items covers the price of the box!!
Cons - Box is hard to open

So all in all I think this box is a MUST and such a bargain price

So if you would like to subscribe click on the link below
Hope u enjoyed reading this, sorry if its abit rambly! Will be reviewing each product so keep a look out! xxxx

Nail Polish Of The Day!

Hey Girlies! So my nail polish of the day is Boots No7 Stay Perfect in Betty Blues 280 Its a very dark navy blue which I think is too close to black. Im more into light colours so this isnt really a shade thats usually for me. I also thought the brush was to wide which made polish go on the skin :-( Dont think this one is a keeper!!

Nail Polish OTD

The Polish I am wearing today is one I have had lying around for AGES!! Its made by Colour Works and was brought from Superdrug unfortunately it doesnt have a shade name but the number is 621701 its like a very light  bronzy colour. It covers really well and goes on nice and easy.

This is 2 coats with Boots 17 lasting fix as a top coat

Hey Guys!!

I have a huge confession!! :-( I had some cake today and ...... (it gets worse) I havnt done my work out :-( MUST MUST MUST get back on track!!! 

On the up side... had my 2nd interview, well more of an informal chat and I think it went really really well! I didnt really know what to wear so I went in black heels with a black bow on the front, light blue straight leg jeans, black vest top and a tailored black suit jacket which I teamed up with a white beaded necklace and bracelet to break it up, I also work my extensions.... thought I looked lovely if I must say so myself ;-) Fingers crossed I get this job! 
Any1 doing anything exciting this weekend? xxx

My Day - 27/10/10

Hey Guys!!

Hope you are all happy and well! 

I stuck to the diet yesterday aint I a good girl but didnt do my workout : ( wait.... I have a good excuse lol My son, partner and I went to a circus!! It was excellent and the little 1 loved it! Its called Russell's International Circus so if you ever see it traveling near you then please do go visit!! Great night out! 
So, back to the workout... Im going to make up for not doing yesterdays by doing it on Saturday which would usually be my rest day :-)

The nail polish im testing at the moment "17 Supreme Shine in Wave" is still looking okay with only a couple of chips after 3 days.

I had some excellent news yesterday! I cant remember if I have mentioned but I have been looking to get back into work and put my son into a Nursery and had an interview on Wednesday, anyway I heard back from the company and have been shortlisted (there is only 2 of us) well done me!!! I now have to go back on Saturday for an informal chat... what on earth do I wear????

I was a little bit naughty yesterday and decided to subscribe to Carmine Beauty Box which I think is such a great idea and will be reviewing for you guys. Just a quickie on what these actually are... You pay £12.75 a month (which you can cancel at anytime) and you receive what looks like a very cute box in the post that has 5 samples of products inside and also a card giving information on all the products in your box and money off vouchers etc.. well I will write a review once ive received my 1st box! If any1 else has subscribed to this service then I would love to know your thoughts.

Sorry for all the rambling!

Diet - Day 2

Going really well so far! Stuck within my WW points once again and also did my 20minute workout, feeling really tired! Hopefully well worth it tho! Have been suffering from dry mouth today from the slimming pills which isnt a bad thing as its making me drink more water!
Have heard from a lovely lady named Adele (Adeles Review on Jimpness) that the slimming pills I am using "Jimpness" have really worked for her, so fingers crossed :-)

Nail Polishes - Rants & Raves

Hey Guys!! So here I am going to keep you updated with all the new polishes and buy and let you know my thoughts!

So, walking around Savers the other day I noticed a very cute polish set by Madame Milly and it seemed a bargain at just £1.99, it comprised of 4 nail colours so I thought I would give it a go! Well you sure get what you pay for! The polish chipped loads before even 24hrs had gone by, and it wasnt like I was doing anything to get them chipped! Not happy, only pro I can say is that the box is cute! Will be passing these on to some1 else to try!

 17 Nail Polish in Wave

Loved this polish! The brush was nice and wide and reached the whole of my nail with one swoosh! I applied two coats and layered on 17 lasting fix polish. Its been 24hrs now and no chips! So good, so far! Below is a pic of this shade. Let me know your thoughts :-)

Rants - Madame Milly -Savers nail polish set
            - Boots No7 Stay Perfect in Betty Blues
Raves - 17 Supreme Shine Polish in Wave

Boots Haul!

I accidently walked into Boots today and accidently walked out with some goodies!! haha
I brought Schwarzkopf Gliss Shampoo & Conditioner for coloured hair as I have recently been using the Gliss for Asia Straight hair and have loved it!! Review to come soon! Sally Hansen Nail Polish Remover £2.45 (Next product in testing) and im also loving nail varnishes at the moment so treated myself to a "17" Lasting Fix Polish £2.99 & "17" Supreme Shine Polish in Wave £3.99 and becuase I brought 2 items of "17" I received a freebie!!! "17" Femme Noir which is a little set that comprises of a black liquid liner, Very Berry Ultimate Volume Lip Gloss & Glitter Eyeshadow in Night Sky. I also was given a voucher for £5 off No7 so really I hardly spent a penny! loool (Any excuse)
Heres some pics for you guys!
