Thanks to the wonderful Holly of the Yummy Mummys Beauty Blog I got to hear of th new beauty box by Carmine. I decided to give them a try as I am not upmarket enough for Boudoir Prive and was annoyed at the way Glossy Box hid the fact they were going to charge P&P till after people had joined.
Received my first box :0)
At first I thought it had been tampered with but it was fine....
The lid however was a pain to get off, I shook it and tried to pull it and poke it, I so badly wanted to see in side and eventually.....
The presentation was lovely...
Was so excited by the red squigglies lol I know I need a life LOL :0)
First out of the box was a full size shadow/blush by The Balm in Frat Boy
Next was Caudalies, Quenching sorbet creme
Then the super moisturising hand cream from Balance Me
An amazing full size of Daniel Sandlers eye delight in peach
And lastly a Nail repair natural by Trind.
I am very happy and looking forward to the next one. So if you like what you see pop along to
I said I would re do it and I have but to be honest I am still not blown away by it.
The polish is a pain to apply as it is thick and dries quickly. It applys patchy which is why I think they say apply two coats.
I also have hand to eye co-ordination problems and can not hold things for long thanks to the fibro so the placing and holding (arms in the air to make sure the magnet doesn't touch)of the magnet was a hassle.
The result to me is just meh! I much prefer plain polish to this, and if I want to do something fun I will use glitter. The job of removing glitter polish to me is a better option than the faffing about with this for results that are simply not worth the bother.
