Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir Perfume Review

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir Perfume

Alphabet Challenge - Viva La Juicy Noir Perfume

This perfume sample was actually received in my August Glossybox but it seemed too perfect to save it for the 'V' post in my alphabet challenge post series! The last few letters of the alphabet are becoming difficult! The Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir perfume was released earlier this year and is the big sister of the existing fragrance, 'Viva La Juicy'.

Even from the bottle design, you can tell it's going to be a little bit more sophisticated and mature than the fun-loving Viva La Juicy!

Untold By Elizabeth Arden Perfume Review

Untold By Elizabeth Arden Perfume Review

Alphabet Challenge - U - Untold by Elizabeth Arden

I've already reviewed three products from the September London Edition of Glossybox (Eylure Pre-Glued Lashes, Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Blusher & Be a Bombshell Onyx Eyeliner) and here is a fourth for you! Definitely proves that for me it was one of the best Glossybox editions for a while!

25 Beauty Questions - The Beauty Tag

DollfaceBlogs Beauty Tag

I saw this Tag post and realised I hadn't done one for a while! So I thought I would have a go at 25 Beauty Questions!

1. Do you apply your foundation with a brush, sponge, or fingers?
It depends on the product actually. For liquid, I prefer a sponge but will use a brush for creams etc

2. Do you apply your eyeshadow from light to dark? or dark to light?
I don’t wear eyeshadow on a daily basis but I guess I would say light to dark

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

Alphabet Challenge - S - Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

Two Rimmel reviews in one day?! Aren't you some lucky readers! As the second alphabet challenge post of the day, S, I am reviewing the Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara for you.

I am not very loyal when it comes to mascaras. When it comes to replacing my mascara, I usually go for the one with the best review at the time. With this one, I actually bought it quite soon after its release just to try a new one!


Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Blusher Review

Alphabet Challenge - R - Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Blusher

Another alphabet challenge post for you; and another product from my September Glossybox - The London Edition! This time, it is the Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Blusher.

I don't often wear blusher, certainly not on a day to day basis. My skin can be quite oily at times as well, so I had never considered a liquid blusher as I was afraid of adding any extra shine! Surprisingly though, I have become a little bit attached to my Rimmel Stay Blushed Blusher!

Alphabet Challenge - Q - Quiz Wishlist!

Another Wednesday wishlist post for my alphabet challenge blog series, and this time I've been having a browse on Quiz's website, which is full of gorgeous clothes! I've picked 3 of my favourite dresses from the site to share with you in this Quiz Clothing wishlist.

Eylure Pre-glued Eyelashes Review

Pre-glued eyelashes by Eylure
Alphabet Challenge - P - Pre-glued lashes

Now here's a product I never thought I would try out... Eylure Pre-glued lashes. I have quite nice natural lashes, but I'm always after enhancing them. If you missed it, I posted about taking care of eyelashes as part of my Alphabet Challenge, earlier this month!

I've never trusted them... I prefer to stick them on myself and then I knew they are secure and I know how long my glue is going to last or how far I can push it!

However, after the lovely people at Glossybox sent these to me in my September Glossybox - The London Edition, I thought it would be rude not to try them at least.

I took the opportunity at my fiance's sister's 21st birthday last weekend. I knew it wouldn't be a mad night full of dancing, but I did know it would be a late one, so I thought that would be the perfect time to test these lashes out!

Be a Bombshell Onyx Eyeliner Review

Be a bombshell Onyx Eyeliner
Alphabet Challenge - O - Onyx Eyeliner Review.

This lovely little eyeliner treat was part of my September Glossybox - The London Edition! I've got a huge array of eyeliners from pencil to gel and liquid by a number of fab brands, but I've never tried an eyeliner with a felt tip. I prefer to keep my eyeliner quite thin, and I think I have assumed that it may be quite difficult with a felt tip eyeliner pen, but receiving the 'Be A Bombshell' Onyx black eyeliner in my September Glossybox has given me the perfect opportunity to try one out!

Nail Art Tips and Tricks

Nail Art Tips and Tricks
Alphabet Challenge - N - Nail Art

I love a bit of nail art. I only recently started experimenting with it when I got bored of watching my fiance on his xbox games or watching the football (the downfalls of only having one television in the flat...!) Now, if he says he wants an evening playing GTA5 then I grab my nail stuff and have some fun!
Here are some of my tips for creating your own amazing nail art!


Superdrug Sugar and Spice Self-Heating Mask Review

Superdrug Sugar and Spice Self-Heating Mask
Alphabet Challenge - M - Mask

Okay, so I know it would probably make more sense for this to be the S post in my alphabet challenge, but I wanted to tell you about it now!

This was a bit of an impuls buy for me, and you will have seen it mentioned in my Haul post from a couple of days ago. I noticed the Sugar & Spice Self-Heating facemask while I was stood in the queue at Superdrug, and for 99p, I couldn't resist giving it a try.

The London Edition of Glossybox

Alphabet Challenge - L - London Edition of Glossybox

It's that time again lovelies, here is my September Glossybox for you to peek into! And to coincide with London Fashion Week, this one is the London Edition.

For starters, this is the nicest box I have received from Glossybox! I love the Union Jack across the front! The red tissue paper with the white sketches and the dark blue ribbon are also lovely! Props to Glossybox designers for this one!

The London Edition of Glossybox

The usual Glossybox mag has also stepped its game up this month! Rather than a leaflet, it's a real magazine, and it looks fab!

Initially, when I opened my box I was a little disappointed, but this was only because I had seen piccies of other boxes who had received HD brows sets and I would have loved one. HOWEVER, after closer inspection, I was really impressed and completely forgot about ever wanting the HD brows set!

Here are the contents of my box:
