So I cancelled by Bellabox on the 1st of last month, but they still charged me for the month. Then they didn’t send me a box – so I chased it up. To their credit they did send me one.
It’s the winter warrior pack. The full size item is the showergel which I do like, but to be honest is on regular special for $3 at Woolworth so it’s not a special treat. Some udderly smooth moisturiser which is nice. A travel mascara by Elisabeth Mott “It’s so big”. This is a repeat from past boxes but they are handy for travel. There is also a new “Universal beauty” lip tint in a nice true red. I like it for a subtle kind of lift to lip colour – I’m a fan of mattes at the moment but it’s good to have some variation in your lip routine. Then there is a couple of palmolive shampoo sachets (meh) and a single double sided wipe. I’m sure they’ll both get used…sigh…
Tempted to try bellabox? – they run regular blogger promotions but I think this non-blogger 3 months of bellabox groupon for $24 is a killer deal. You can try it for $8 a month so the risk is pretty low. It’s usually $17.95 a month now.
Beautybay was doing 10% off cosmetics a few weeks back so I logged onto to get a new Stila 24 hour waterproof liner then I realised I could pick up a the Stila Best of Black set for about the cost of a smudge stick + 24 hours liner – and I scored a cute clutch and bracelet, black shimmery eye shadow and a spare mascara. Not that I needed a clutch and bracelet, black shimmery eye shadow and a spare mascara – but still it’s not like I can ever resist a bargain.It comes in a beautiful gold box and I think would be a great gift for any one looking to buy a school formal gift for a daughter or niece.
The Beautybay home brand was also doing a BOGO special which bundled with the 10% off so I picked up a couple of lippies to try and some of the mineral foundation. The lippies are a nice pair of colours and a mid coverage which is great for office wear. The packaging is quite classy as well, with black matte cyclinder. The only downside is that they smell a bit plastic-waxy and I’m used to lipsticks that have that nice vanilla smell.
Here are some swatches of the lipsticks in Raspberry (pink-red) at the bottom and Berry Fusion (purple-pink) top. The rest of the swatches still to come!
