Birchbox 3 Months On

Image
Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

Beautique Cosmetics 14pc Nail Library Review

Hello everyone

So Today's post is a bit late as I was meant to upload this yesterday but I was really busy however it did give me a bit more time to take a few photos of the amazing collection I am about to show you all.

So at Christmas I was given a nail polish set that I wasn't really expecting much from as I had tried the other makeup products the brand had and found them to be very disappointing. Now I don't believe in the fact that if anything is too cheap it won't work because I have found so many things that are absolutely amazing and have next to nothing for. 

So the collection consists of 14 nail polishes which consist of :
-4 Glitter colors
-4 Metallic like colors
-6 average colors ( ranging from a pale pink to a very dark red.)

Now the first thing I will mention is the bottles as you can see the bottles are tiny which I actually prefer to the average size nail polish as they are easier to store and I think personally look cuter. Now the nail polishes are brilliant but I wan't to explain fully why so. 


The Glitter polishes , now I decided to give these a go as I was really curious to see if these would be the type of glitter nail polish that is meant to be an overcoat for a normal nail but no these nail polishes are for wear on their own they have such a good amount of glitter in them and the glitter doesn't glide around everywhere when you apply it , they just sit nicely and look beautiful. 

The Metallic's , now I was really excited for these as I had never really had any metallic's that actually looked nice not only in the bottle but on the nails which was something I found with these , they have such a nice color to them and they don't fade out or run which is something I was really surprised with. 

The Average colors , now I don't think I am giving these enough amount of glory from just calling them 'average' but honestly they are so good I found that they are such beautiful colors that apply nicely and look nice with anything. They also have such a huge amount of shine to them which I didn't really expect. I actually find these to be similar to the Barry M 'Gelly' polishes due to the amount of shine and that sort of 'gel' effect they give off. 

I would have to say that my favorite by far has to be this little teal one , I find this is such a nice color and is quite different to the rest in the collection. And considering the fact that its spring I find this to be such a good color to suit the current season.

The only thing I would say is that these need a little bit of drying time (2-3 minutes at the most) but they are such good products and such a value for money as they retail for £2.99 which is the normal cost of buying one nail varnish whereas for this price you get 14 amazing quality polishes. 

Overall I think you can see that I love this nail polishes and will be trying to maybe take some pictures of all the colors on my nails in the future as I hope to be using these when it's summer. 

P.s I do apologize that this was uploaded a day late but I will definetly be posting tomorrow about my mini Spring Boots haul !
