New Additions | January 2017

Monday, January 16, 2017

With the new year comes new additions to my stash, and while I'm desperately trying to cut down my collection of beauty products, I am still as eager as ever to try new things without being as excessive as I once was.





Look Fantastic Beauty Box* | from £13 p/m


My eyes instantly lit up when I opened this month's selection of goodies because the range is so interesting including brands I love and some amazing looking things I've never even heard of.

I was happy to see a Pixi Brow Tamer in the mix. I started using this last month and it's become a bit of an obsession. I like to fill in my brows with powder and this clear gel just helps even things out, get rid of any excess and sets my hard work in place without making my brows feel hard or crispy. Its also good for me to have a fresh one to feature in my Makeup Of The Day posts over on Instagram as the tube I'm currently using is in no state to be seen!

The other makeup bits are all new to me. Just saying Jelly Pong Pong makes me happy, I don't know why and the fact that the product is called Fairy Lashes is a bonus. The packaging is simple and the wand looks promising and I'm excited to see just how much it does for my lashes. Another new brand for me is Trifle Cosmetics which takes inspiration from yummy desserts. Liquid Glow is a cream highlighter with a strong pink iridescence that won't flatter my skin tone in any way, but I'm sure I could use on my eyes for a fun look.

There is only one skincare product in the mix this month and I'm glad to see its Nuxe Gentle Toning Lotion. I find myself leaning towards gentle toners and I feel like this will be a good one to balance the skin after cleansing. There is also a hair product in the form of Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair Deep Conditioning Mask. This is one of those products that I know I will appreciate when I next go away and my hair suffers from a lack of attention and care. And finally, the cutest item is The Vintage Cosmetic Company Tweezers in the eternally appealing finish of rose gold.


Love Me Beauty | £10 p/m + p&p



I actually really like the concept of Love Me Beauty but for the last couple of months I have considered cancelling my subscription because some of the selections contained amazing products but for quite a lot of points meaning that essentially I would only be getting only 2 products that month. But yet again, I saw that this month's selection contained a couple of products I've wanted to try for a while and so I kept it only to find that I had a few additional points waiting for me at checkout ;) YAY!

Makeup Forever is just one of those brands that I want to try a million products from (maybe because they've got a million in their repertoire) yet never really seem to invest in. As I'm a powder loving girl, both of these powders have been on my wish list forever. Makeup Forever Ultra HD Loose Powder comes in the cutest miniature pot whereas the Pressed Powder comes in one of those plastic snap pods but either way, I am excited to finally try them.

An item I didn't have enough points to get the previous month is Laura Mercier Full Blown Volumising Supreme Mascara. I have this obsession with sample mascaras lately mainly because I feel like there's an extraordinary amount of product in each tube and you really do get to sample the product out completely without committing to a full size. Given that mascaras are the one item you should be throwing out most frequently after use, samples are perfect then as I won't feel like I'm throwing my money away after a few months.

Finally, I got two items that I have previously received, in my first ever Love Me Beauty month in fact. As the full sizes of these products are so expensive, to me it just makes sense to get my hands on these little pots when I can. Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask and Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm are both luxury skin treats that I reserve for when I really want to make my pamper session special.

If you'd like to sign up to Love Me Beauty, feel free to use my code: SYEDA0065924 at sign up to receive extra points for the following month.

I hope you enjoyed this round up of some of the new additions to my beauty stash this month. Let me know what Beauty Box(es) or Beauty Subscription Services you are signed up to and what you love most about it.
