Birchbox // October 2014

Once again it's time for the monthly Birchbox fix with a heap of exciting goodies. This month's theme was 'Work it', with the focus on helping us get through our 9-5s and beyond. Additionally, this month's box was tweaked to feature a 'CoppaFeel' design to support the October Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Featured in this months's box are :
Cattier Pink Clay Face Mask, KMS California Hair Play Playable Texture Spray, Shaveworks The Cool Fix, Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm in Natural Rose and the Lollipops Nail Lacquer in Red, with the Lifestyle goodie - the Birchbox Lipstick pen.
Thoughts - very pleased this month, particularly looking forward to having a play around with the Pixi lip balm and the clay mask. The texture spray looks quite promising too, I've previously been using a Charles Worthington one and have liked that a lot so hopefully this will be just as good.
Have you used any of these products before? Let me know your thoughts :)

Discovery // Cosmetics Fairy!

I first found about the Cosmetics Fairy website probably a few months, whilst watching one of Miss Budget Beauty's lovely haul videos. Already a massive fan of Fragrance Direct I'm always on the look for new discount websites with a good product offering. Although the choice was limited in my opinion, I managed to find some brilliant bargains. At the moment there is free delivery on orders over £10 (not sure if this a promotion or a permanent fixture) so I just couldn't help myself and picked up a few bits. Believe it or not... all but one of the items were 99p or less! What a bargain? I was one very happy girl! Here is what I purchased:

Bourjois Effet 3D Les Nudes Lipgloss in 37 Rose or Chic,  L'Oreal Project Runway Ltd Edition Blusher in 625 Audacious Amazons Blush, L'Oreal Project Runway Nail Polish in 291 The Queens Ambition, L’Oreal Infallible Lipstick in 112 Unending Kiss , L'Oreal Infallible Lip Balm Refill, Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish in 901 Golden Conduct, Bourjois Brush Foundation in 32 Rose Clair (tester size), Lash Perfect La La Lashes False Eyelashes in Desire. Maybelline Color show Fashion Nail Stickers in 05 Fierce Snake. And lastly, I don't think it is possible to browse a discount cosmetics website and not pick up an Essie nail polish (stocks permitting) so I got two Essie Mini Nail Lacquer Nail Polishes in Smooth Sailing and Braziliant.

I also picked up the Bourjois Ombre A Paupieres Eyeshadow Intense in T08 (not pictured) which is a shimmery dark chocolate brown shade. This came in tester packaging and was only 50p!

Overall I was very pleased with my shopping experience, as the website was easy to use and the products arrived well before the estimated delivery date which was a lovely surprise. With such unbeatable prices I will definitely be shopping on again!
