New!

New header, and blogwidth. What do you think?
Im not so sure about the "reason to celebrate" font and position, but I want it on the header.. so.. Yeah.
Suggestions?

Quick question..

I have been receaving Glossyboxes from three months now, and I haven't reviewed anything but the perfume yesterday. 
For you who does not know what Glossybox is, is basically a subscription for beauty products. You pay a fairly low price, and once a month a cute package with practical boxes ( I use mine ones for lashes, candles, eyeshadows etc..) with five products in them. Sometimes fullsized products, sometimes small versions. Never testers though, allthough they can be in the boxes as extra suprises.



So this is what I have recieved the last three months, I know the pic is hidious with the x-es and all, but wtf. You get the point behind them ^^

From the Mars-box, that had the theme "Back to nature"
  • Mádara Ecocosmetics - Toning Shower Soap (25ml/travelsize)
  • Fruit Gorilla and Friends - Caring Lipbalm Rasberry (15g/fullsize)
  • Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream (17g/fullsize)
  • L'Occitane - Shea Hand Cream (10ml/minisize)
  • Loréal Paris - Color Riche Le Vernis (5ml/mini)
Cant wrap my head around why Loréal was in this naturefriendly box? 

April-box, which contained winning products from the Swedish Beauty & Cosmetics Awards
  • The Body Shop - Earth Lovers Lemon and Thyme Shower Gel (250ml/fullsize)
  • Replay - Jeans Spirit! For her - EdT & Shower Gel (40ml/travelsize + tester EdT)
  • Maria Nila - Kolorit Volume Powder (50ml/fullsize)
  • Garnier - BB Cream Light (50ml/fullsize)
  • Illamasqua - Sheer Lipgloss Violate (7ml/fullsize)
And the May-box, dont know the name of this one yet.. But summer and scents was the main focus
So.. to my question. S. Questions.

Do you want a review of any of these products?
In the future, would you like to see what I get in every box?
Should I review the products right away, or only the things you beautiful readers want to know more about?

Review: Love and Toast - Sugar Grapefruit Perfume

When I am at the fruitsection in a store, I almost always stop and smell the pink grapefruits. It is the best smell ever. And almost every time I smell those damn nice fruits, I say "I want a perfume that smells like this."
And then my glossybox arrived this morning. With this wonderful little (7,5ml) thing.

 Love and Toast - Sugar Grapefruit Perfume

It smells like sugarcoated pink grapefruits! Yay!






 I am so bad at putting my finger on notes in perfumes. All I can sniff is that it is a much sweeter smell that grapefruits. But the pink grapefruit is still very noticeble. The notes are Pink grapefruit, Orange citrus and musky lily.
The scents comes from essential oils, no synthetics, the alcohol in it is made from corn and it's not tested on animals.


My problems with this is that the scent does not stay long on the skin. Not what I can smell any way, but its quite hard to smell your own neck. I do smell a tiny bit of citrusy sweetness on the wrist. But barely noticeble. Haha. 
And the fact you see on the picture above. Just a opening in the bottle. I practically showered in this today, because Im a cluts. 

Even though it does not last very long, I still love this perfume. And I do not grow fond of sweet smells. But this is so nice and summery. Lovely. Im gonna wear this all summer. Wonder if it blends well with Illamasquas Freak, for those partynights.. Hrrhrr..



Colourful Wednesday: Purple Quarter

This make up looks more messy in pictures than it is irl ._.
As you might noticed from a lot of my pictures, my liner does that kind of bump under the wing?
I have a weird eyeshape for liner. It's really frustrating. If I make it a smal line the eyes look droopy, so I have to make it thick all the time. And that bump.. well. I dont want to make it thicker :')

Holomess!

So, I painted my nails in a greenish-blue colour. Then I saw some glitter (Ia Mias Micro Fine Glitter - Hologram). And made the bad choice of dipping my nails in it. Glitter EVERYWHERE.
Took a browbrush and brushed away all the glitter, pushed the glitter on the nails a tiny bit, then two coats of Seche Vite.
