• Ooh it's Glamour Box time again :) I cannot describe how much I love these boxes! It's like a lovely little present to me, from me :) Plus being a full time student teacher - cash and time for beauty shopping is a bit limited,  it's such a great way to try out loads of new beauty items and it is only £16.99 plus free postage.

    Here is a little piccy round up of what the box contains:

    Xen-Tan Luminous Gold Gel - I really like this as it is a lovely shimmery tan, it develops over 3 hours and gives a lovely golden colour. Also as the packaging is 30ml, it is great for popping in your travel bag if you are going to want a nice colour all weekend.

    Philip Kingsley Shampoo and Conditioner - I haven't used these yet as they are perfect travel size (both 20ml), so I am going to take them with me when I go visiting family next week.

    Vichy Purette Thermal 2 in 1 and Vichy Idealia Life Serum – I love the smell of these little guys! The cleaner, toner and eye make-up remover is so soft on your skin too. One down side is that it didn’t remove my eye make-up as well as the oil I usually use, so white towels now have black make-up marks – noo! I'm a huge fan of serum so I am loving trying this new one.

    Wild About Beauty Powder Eyeshadow – I am huge fan of neutral colours at the moment and this is a lovely coppery/brown shade. It is highly pigmented too. The beauty card also give a great tip – wet the brush if you want a more long-lasting intense finish!

    Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Black – I was so looking forward to this eye-liner, but it looks brown/black! So, I'm afraid it will be a day time natural only for me : (

    LOLA Nail Polish in Bluebell – The colour reminds me of summer, so for me not a winter/Christmas season nail varnish. It is quite thin, so you need a few coats, but it’s a lovely shiny vibrant colour, which I can’t wait to use again next year. 

    Skyn Iceland Hydro Cooling Eye Gels – I haven’t tried this one yet as I have read great things about it, so I'm saving it for New Year’s Day!

    Popband London – these are such great little hair bands and look far prettier on your wrist than my usual black elastic. They did actually leave my hair without that tell-tale kink, so I was really impressed!

    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer – what can I say I love Burt’s Bees Lip balm. Perfect pop it in your handbag and off you go! :)

    Collection Lengthening Mascara in black – I haven’t really used Collection Mascaras before, but I like this one and the brush gives a nice defining look, so think I might be a new fan :)

    L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin – My all-time favourite hairspray! I have used this for years, but at 75ml it is perfect handbag size so definitely perfect for the Christmas do to keep that just stepped out of the salon look going all night! :)

    Other extras:
    GLAMOUR Magazine Subscription for iPad/iPhone – there is a code on the inlay card in the box so get your free annual subscription – great stuff!

    FREE Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Worth £19 – unfortunately mine hasn’t arrived though, so I am rather disappointed :( 

    Well, there it is in all it’g glory. Again I cannot describe how much I love these boxes for trying out new and old favourites :) Can’t wait for the next one! 

    Lots of love,

    Helen xoxo
