Bellabox Feb review

I’ve really happy to say that Bellabox really knocked it out of the park with this months box. There was a choice of 3 boxes curated by different magazine editors which you could choose from if you got last months box early (I didn’t). I ended up with the Harper Bazaar box which was actually really good.

I got a

  • essie nail polish in Haute in the Heat – a deep raspberry pink. The pic below is one coat, it’s amazingly pigmented. This is the best essie polish I’ve ever tried.
  • Burts Bees Lemon Cuticle Cream in a mini
  • Harpers Bazaar from March
  • another mini of Aveda Touramaline Creme and Cleanser (!)
  • sachets of Transformulas marine miracle creme and lip volume
  • a 30ml mini of Soak body lotion
  • a 2 sacheta of zk’in line smoothing serum.


It’s really great value for $15 this month – that’s easily $30-40 of value even for me. If you are thinking about joining this is my affliate link.

It’s actually really good value – the first 3 items are easily worth over $15 to me and I get to try some other moisturisers and stuff. Yay. If you want to sign up this is my referal link.


Dupe-ish; Illamasqua Precision Ink in Wisdom vs NYX Aqua Luxe Liner in Golden

I really love my Illamasqua precision ink in Wisdom, it’s a touch less intense for days when I’m not doing a gel liner and has just a touch of sparkle. Unfortunately at $32 it’s a little pricy for something you are supposed to throw out after 3 months (damn you liquid eyeliners!).


I just found this dupe-ish liner from NYX (R. vs Illamasqua on the left) which is also waterproof and long wearing and has a very similar black with light gold sparkles effect and it was $7 on special. So yay. The NYX is a touch more sparkly and has a true brush rather than the silicon nub tip, which I like as I seem to get better control with a brush.
