Iconemesis gave me a selection of gorgeous cases to chose from and as they collaborate with some really amazing artists I felt it was only appropriate that I select one that showcases the unique selection of artists they represent.
I recently subscribed to GlossyBox after i saw it on Milk Teefs blog and i had convinced my mother to subscribe to previous months i was quite excited to get my first box. This months box was.. an unusual collection of items with few that appealed to me personally, i have noticed on twitter that a number of other glossy box subscribers are also not as pleased with this box as they have been with other months.
In this box i got:
FC5 Cooling foot Creme - I have yet to actually try this, i dont usually like foot cremes but this has a nice minty smell.
- Dead Sea Spa MAGIK Dead sea Bath Salts - I usually don’t use my bath but im curious to try these, though i dont think bath salts in my experience really vary that much in effectiveness.
- Monu skin perfector - This is probably the only product i really liked from the set, it has a nice creamy texture and works well under makeup.
- Serge Lutens - L’Eau Serge Lutens & Vitriol d’Oeillet - The L’eau Serge Lutens is a male and female fragrance, its much more masculine than i would wear on a daily basis but i would probably wear it occasionally. The Vitriol d’Oeillet fragrance was much more my ‘type’ or fragrance, it has a more feminine scent to it even though its made for males and females again.
- Nail Rock - Designer nail wraps. These were quite nice, i personally do like leopard print although if i had received the silver ones i probably would have loved this box just for them, im going to keep mine for a special occasion.
I hope the December box is better, i think it will be because its Christmas next month, alot of people prefer the Feel Unique box which i have also subscribed too, i think i will see how the glossy box is for next month before deciding to continue with this particular box.
Recently Rouge Bunny Rouge sent me some great products for me to try out and i wanted to write a little review about them! They sent me three products: Milk Aquarelle Foundation in Coconut Parfait, Seas of Illumination highlighter in Sea of Tranquillity and Amplitude Big Lash Mascara in pure Obsidian.
Firstly i wanted to talk about the packaging, as a branding student the appearance of the products means alot to me and after seeing Rouge Bunny Rouge’s enchanted garden themed website i was very excited to see the products, and i was not disappointed. The whimsical garden theme carried over into the packaging beautifully and i really felt like i had a premium product in my hands. I thought the two small sample pots they sent me were just as cute as the mascara box and mascara itself.
Milk Aquarelle - Liquid Foundation
The first product i wanted to talk about it the Milk Aquarelle Foundation, i was sent this product in the shade ”Coconut parfait” this is their lightest shade as im quite pale. I absolutely LOVED this foundation, it has a almost mouse like feel to the actual product and was very silky and went onto my skin so easily. I have quite dry skin in places and i have had foundations in the past that have only flaked or not sat properly on my skin because of this. The Milk Aquarelle had no such problem, it went on unbelievably light and it actually felt like i was wearing no foundation so it surprised me with how well it covered and evened out skin tone too, it felt much more like a tinted moisturiser than a foundation and i would recommend it to anybody. The shade suited my skin and didnt appear too dark or give an ‘orange’ look which is unusual as my skin tone is quite pale and i find foundations that match hard to find.
Sea of Illumination - Liquid Highlighting Fluid
The second product from their facial range i was sent was their Sea of Illumination highlighting fluid, i was sent the shade ”Sea Of Tranquillity’ which has a great pale pink tone to it which would be flattering to all skin tones in my opinion. I must say this was my least favourite product out of the three and it took a little bit of getting used too. It has a great shimmer to it without looking glittery or unnatural on the skin and looked good on its own and without any other make-up. I personally found this difficult to apply on-top of the foundation as it seemed to re moisturise the foundation and almost rub it off, i also found it difficult to apply with a foundation brush which is something i usually use to apply my highlighters with. After a few days i tried applying it under the foundation with my fingers which worked much better, it toned down the shimmer which i found a little disappointing but still gave a really natural looking dewy glow to my skin in the areas i applied it too. It also has a really nice smell to it, its quite fresh and slightly watermelon in scent.
Amplitude - Big Lash Mascara
The final product i was sent was from their eye range and i must say its by far my favourite of the three although the Milk Aquarelle foundation comes a close second behind this. I found their Amplitude Big Lash Mascara absolutely fantastic. It felt really creamy and nourishing to my lashes and i didn’t need many coats to get the look i wanted, it also is so wonderfully pigmented; infact it made some of my other mascaras look brown in comparison! It didnt flake through the day and i didnt feel like i needed to put lots of coats on to get a good result. It added length and volume to my lashes and just really amazed me with how well it preformed compared to other mascaras i had tried. I will definitely be purchasing this product again and along with the Milk Aquarelle Foundation i totally recommend these products to anybody.
Overall i would recommend Rouge Bunny Rouge as a brand, i feel their products are of a quality only seen in other premium brands such as mac and i just think they offer a nice alternative to the ‘norm’.
