July 2018 Pink Parcel.


Hey! So im rather excited to bring you the first of many monthly posts on pink parcel! Pink parcel is the only monthly box i have ever stuck with, and have gotten for over a year now.

Pink Parcel is a monthly subscription service, for those that get periods!

 

In every box you get a fair amount of the period product of your choice, so in my case thats pads. you get a box full marked for later, a bag full for now, a box of night pads for later and then you get a box that is marked for you.

Now, the box marked for you is where all the fun things are! Inside the box marked for you there is always a tea bag, a sweet treat of some kind, one or two full sized beauty products and a few samples.

Pink parcel is £10.50 a month, you can choose a date it will arrive to suit your cycle & they also have a pink parcel store were you can buy a lot of the products they feature in the box! as you may be able to tell, i really adore pink parcel, ive been getting it for a year now and no more do i have those panicked moments of running out of pads, and plus i get chocolate and beauty products! win win.

Alright, shall i actually show you whats in Julys box now? This months theme is glowing skin, so lets see what that means!


first off, the sweet treat! these can be hit and miss, though there has been some really nice chocolate in here, this months is Joe & Sephs Popcorn with caramel & Belgian chocolate is £4 for 80g (you get 18g in the box). I havent tried it yet, im honestly not the biggest fan of popcorn! so i might give this to my mum, as she likes popcorn much more than i do.

The tea bag this month is the We are tea super berry infusion tea £2.99 for 75g (we got a bag), i have to be honest that i generally collect these tea bags for anyone else that wants them as i dont like tea!

next up we have the sample size products, so we have the balanceme flash cleanse micellar water  £16.00 for 180ml (we get 30ml). I love balance me products, i havent tried this micellar water just yet, i do like a good micellar water mainly for removing makeup swatches, makeup fall out clean & mistakes etc.

The two other samples we have are the Mudmasky sleep repair renewal nourishing mask  and the Mudmasky facial detox purifying detox mask £60.00 for 60ml (we get 15ml). Oh boy are these pricey! ive tried the sleep mask once, it doesnt feel heavy or anything and it sinks in, makes your skin feel soft but havent noticed anything other than that yet!

Alright onto the full size products! first up is the magn!tone wipe out the amazing microfibre cleansing cloth £14.99 for 2 (we got one). ohh i was so excited to see this in here! ive wanted to try one of these for ages, ive messed around with it a bit so far and im impressed!

and lastly there is the jelly pong pong cosmetics stardrops light-activated glow drops $34 (cant find a uk stocklist!). these are the popular highlighter drop things right now, these are in the colour supernova a bright gold, but sadly really not my colour so i havent opened them so i can give them away at some point!

so there you have it! i wasnt blown over by this months if im honest, but thats likely down too the drops not being my thing. Even so i am looking forward to seeing what i get next month.

Makeup Revolution Pro Regeneration Trends Mischief Mattes Review & swatches.

Hey! so this is the first time ive talked about a makeup revolution product on my blog unless its just been listed in a makeup look but trust me it wont be the last! i adore makeup revolution, freedom, obsession products and my makeup collection shows that for sure!

well, a few weeks ago there summer sale started so of course i was straight onto there site (i may have placed another order the day im typing this too…opps), and placed a rather large order, however this palette was not in the sale. It was something i new from the moment it was released i was gonna be ordering the next time i made an order with them, so i did!

This is the Makeup Revolution Pro Regeneration Trends Mischief Mattes palette £8.00, and yes its got one heck of a name! but its worth it because for £8 its an extremely good matte eyeshadow palette.

It contains a wide selection of colours but its of course mainly brights, with a white and a beige thrown in too. Below ive swatched all of the shadows, this is all one swipe, though i will say i was rather warm when i swatched them hence the skipping due to warm hands!

From left to right – Saint, Attached, New Day, Day Dream, Half Time, Believer.
From left to right – Ringleader, Fearless, Shrine, Indication, Crusade, Poison.

From left to right – Upperhand, Underdog, Ricochet, Exclusive, Haunted, Cursed.

As you can see, theres a really good selection of colours, you have your more “wearable” pinks and purples, blues and greens and even a yellow! yellow and red eyeshadow are the two colours i really struggle to find yet the two in this palette are really good. The pigment is extremely good, i mean look at these swatches! for cheaper mattes its crazy, they blend out really nicely and as long as you prime (and i always do) they are going to stay put, even on my very oily hooded lids. I couldnt honestly recommend these enough, ive had trouble not picking it up for every look i do at the minute!

have you tried this palette? did you love it as much as i did? let me know!
