Too Wrapped Up




Today i am talking about a company called Too Wrapped Up, for those of you who don't know, these are a company selling gifts, cards, wrapping paper and some stationary. Personally I'm in love with everyone on this website, they have such unique prints and cute gifts that anyone would enjoy. 

They very kindly said that i could review one of their cards and i chose this one, with my twin sister (fellow blogger, ill link below) and i's birthday coming up when i seen this card i knew she would love it and it summed her up for a tee. This card is called 'Party Time' and is available for £3 which in my opinion is about average for a birthday card especially unique ones like this. All the cards on this website are priced at £3 and there is a wide range of different prints available for every occasion! 

They also very kindly gave me a free postage code for all of you who would like to purchase from them: 'AUGUST'

Love Me Beauty Box August Edition


I once again got my month box from Love Me Beauty as you probably know by now i love there service. This month i chose four product, four of these being Nuxe Skincare products and the other being a lipstick.

Firstly i will talk about Nuxe skincare products, Nuxe is a skincare brand i have never ever tried but i have heard so many good things about so when i seen that they were available this month i had to try them out if you don't know Nuxe is a french pharmacy selling lots of different skincare products. 

Firstly is the  Gentle Toning Lotion with Rose Petalsi don't normally go for products that are scented but i thought id give it a go and surprisingly the scent isn't too strong and even though i have sensitive skin it works perfectly and leaves your skin feeling refreshing, hydrating and super soft! Its safe to say i will definitely repurchase this. 

Next is the Moisturizing Mask Crème Fraîche de Beautéthis seemed perfect for me as its meant to help dry skin and i do have really dry skin, your meant to leave this on your skin for 10 minutes before removing. After using this for around a month, i would definitely recommend this to anyone. I love how refreshing and soft and hydrating it leaves your skin feeling. 

The last Nuxe Product is the Nuxe Hulie Prodigieuse Dry Oil, unfortunately this is the one product that i havent tried out but once i have i will write up a separate review. This products can be used on the face to help keep it nourished and can also be used on your hair to add  value and shine so i am excited to try this out! 

The lipstick i got was the Shien Cosmetics  Lip Veil Lipstick in 'Dynasty' this does look like and orangey shade but in actual fact it comes out a pinky, pearly shade which is very soft and moisturising on the lips and is very long lasting yay! Although id never heard of this brand before i would recommend this as i do love this lipstick but they are priced at £12 per lipstick.

Beauty Uk Picks


Beauty Uk Ultimate Contour Palette 
Beauty Uk Brow Kit
Beauty Uk Posh Pout
Beauty UK Posh Pout Swatches 

I was kindly sent a package from Beauty Uk, my package included the following products: ultimate contour kit, brow kit and two posh pouts in different shades. (I picked these products myself)

Firstly the Contour Palette, lets talk about the packaging! The packaging for this product isn't amazing but for the value of £5.99 you really can't complain its in a black outer packaging that features a step by step instructions on how to apply the product which is useful if you are new to the contouring game! Also the packaging features a magnetic lid which does come in handy! In this palette you get one bronzer, contour and highlighter which for the value i think is pretty impressive. Onto the product itself, the bronzer is a nice tone and colour but i don't think would be suited to those with really fair skin but after giving this a go it does add a warm tone to your face but definitely do think it would be suited to those with a darker skin tone. As for the highlighter and the contour i think this would be one of those products that would be perfect for any skin tone, the highlight has to be my favourite it as a perfect light to those areas of your face you wish but doesn't have any shimmer in which i personally think is a bonus as a lot of drugstore beauty products tend to have a shimmer in them for some reason! Overall i would recommend this product as i think it is a great product and is very impressive for the price. 

Next is the brow kit, this is priced at £4.99 and in the kit you get 3 different shades of eyebrow tint and one colourless wax to help keep your brows is place. Personally i think this is amazing for the value as it means its suited for anyone and you can also mix the colours to get the perfect colours for you. Also it comes with a double ended applicator and tweezers. On to the actual product, i think this product is actually so so good the consistency is almost like a powder and once you've found the perfect colour for you, simply applying this with the applicator or even your own brush if you have one and then using the wax gives you the perfect eyebrows that last all day! 


Lastly i got sent two Posh Pout lip stains in two shades; Sugar Plum Fairy and Would lilac to you?  For me i think the consitency of these lip stains are really nice as there almost like tinted lip balms as there so soft on the lips and are very pigmented and i was very surprised to see that these lasted all day. These come in six different shades and i definitely will be purchasing more, i have my eye on there nude lip stain called 'Oh So Nude' so i think that will be the next addition to the collection. These are also priced at £2.99 which i must say is a complete and utter bargain as these are definitely a must have!

Love Me Beauty Box...


I have yet another Love me Beauty box, for those of you who haven't read my other posts i have been getting these boxes for about 4 months now. For me i feel like this is one of the best boxes there are purely because you can pick your products your self out of a range of products saving you getting products that you are to keen on and probably wont use. 

This month was the first time i had seen some of Love Me Beauty's own products so i picked them both up, this included the Love Me Beauty tweezers and nail file. You can never have too many of either of these as these always seem to go missing somehow! 

Also in this months box, i picked the Mirabella eye definer. After trying a Mirabella beauty lipstick in a previous box and it has not turnt out to be my favourite lipstick so its safe to say i was very impressed so i thought id give this a go. 

Next i picked the Yes Nurse Hand Moisturiser, i thought i would pick this as my hands are definitely something i neglect and never moisturise so i think this will come in very handy(you get it) especially in the winter. 

 Then there is the Neal & Wolf Hairspray, I'm always on the look out for hairspray and this seems to have some good reviews so i thought id give it a whirl.  

Lastly is the Bellapierre Shimer Powder, i thought id try this out because its a brand I've never heard of but the shade looks incredible (sorry you can't see this on the picture) and this brand that after research seems to be pretty good!

Overall, i am once again very happy with my box and can't wait to try out these products. I will be sure to review some on my blog for you all too!
