Lolita Lempicka Eau de ParfumSi Lolita, APIVITA express beauty masks,
I'm going to start by saying, I adore this month's box -- so so much more than April's.  When I first opened the lid, I fell in love with the wrapping inside... cute little illustrations of cupcakes, bows, lipstick and mirrors. I love the whole colour scheme of this box too - peach/pale pink and black.  This month, Glossybox have pushed the boat out a little bit with their design due to it being a big celebratory month for their one year anniversary -- congratulations guys!!

I've got to say, I was thrilled to bits when I found Lolita Lempicka perfume in my box! - for those of you that are regular readers of my blog, this perfume was featured in 'Weekly wishlist #3' after using up my previous samples.  Until I get a new job, these samples will be rationed out very carefully as the full-size version is slightly out of my price range at the moment.  I received Eau de Parfum & Si Lolita (the second one is new to me and I'm excited to try it out!).  Also, for a limited time only, you can receive a gorgeous free Parisian shopper with any Lolita Lempicka purchase of 50ml and above from House of Fraser (in store or online) -- so get on it ladies!

I am always open to trying out new shower gels and bath things, so the Noble Isle sample was a lovely treat.  The scent of it is quite tangy upon first smell but I'm sure it will dilute somewhat once it is used under the shower.  Similarly, I love to receive new hair goodies, so the Berber oil will be interesting to experiment with  (I have never used any form of oil so this will be an experience!) -- The oil I received is an Argan one with a beautiful sweet-scent.  I just opened the lid to see what it smelt like and the first thing that came to my head is 'pick and mix' - yum!  Like with the oils, I am yet to experiment with the facial mask but mine comes with a scent of orange so I see a theme running through these items with their very refreshing aromas.

I don't think any girl would turn down a set of false lashes so the Eldora ones were a win/win featurette.  Although I am still yet to use my lashes from the 'She Said Beauty box', the Eldora ones are more for a night out in my case due to their thickness.  They are handmade and also come with glue so this is an added bonus.  The lashes I was sent are style 'B168' and retail at £4.25 for a set.

Lastly, how cute are the mirror and balloon in this box?  The mirror was a little extra something from the Glossybox team in celebration of their anniversary.  Likewise with the balloon -- the idea behind this is to blow up the balloon and take a photo of yourself holding it, which can then be Tweeted/Facebooked for them to see.  It's a cute little way of the Glossybox society teaming together! -- I will be doing this over the next few days on a not so 'make up free' afternoon!

Oh, before I forget!  For those of you that are following me on Twitter, I said earlier that I would be posting a photo of my nails of the day for you all to see.  This morning, my gorgeous Technic Carnival nail varnish arrived and I couldn't resist trying it out.  I was already sporting some silver MUA nails (shade 11) so I applied one coat of Technic followed by my O.P.I nail envy.


Have you tried out any of these products before?
