BellaBox April 2014 Review


Yes I know I said March BellaBox was going to be the last one but guess what I have been cheeky,,,went back and signed up once again.I had to I'm quite addicted to the subscription boxes at the moment.They make me happy or sad thats the different story.Anyways Moving on to the April BellaBox this months theme is AUTUMN WINTER STYLE.The Box contains products that I really needed.Here are the products came in my Bellabox. 


Dirty Works Hand Cream 100 ml RRp $5.95 (Full Size):- I have been looking for a nice hand cream since I have run out of my Rituelle's organic hand cream so this is going straight on my bed side table.I almost picked up this cream from Coles last week and than for some reasons put it back and picked up Body Butter instead from this brand.It smells Beautiful and will last for a while.

Red Earth Lip Lustre Multidimensional Lip Glass RRP $16.00 (Full Size):- Yes it says "Glass" on the packaging as well as on the info card.I seem to be getting this colour a lot lately in my beauty boxes and sadly its not my colour so I did not bother opening it and will give it away.My colour is 03 Red Quartz.

Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream 17.0 g RRP $14.95:- I'm so glad that I actually got this cuticle cream than a lip balm.I really needed one and this came just at right
 time.I have used few products from burt's bees and have never been disappointed.


Indio Skin Tonic Spritz 200 ml RRP $44:- I have not used toner in a while now so it was a nice surprise to see it in a subscription box.Its for all skin types and this one is a 30 ml active toner comes in a spray bottle.

Indio Eye Rinse 15 ml RRP $67.20:- I love using eye products and never get sick of them but this one seems quite expensive to me I have 5 ml sample here.It's an Anti -Ageing eye cream contains SPF and concealing properties which I think is awesome.The formula is bit similar to the colour of my foundation but as soon as you put it on it blends really well into the skin and does not show up the colour of the cream.I would not mind using it as a base.


Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation 30 ml RRP $25.95:- They are small little sachets in 4 different shades.The foundation comes in 3 forms Liquid,Pressed Powder & Loose Powder.I honestly love the idea of getting few shades of foundations to try at home.Sometimes due to the lightening effect I find it hard to match the foundation to my skin so I'll  definitely try these out.

Overall I'm happy with the selection of the products in the box and will use all the products except the lip gloss.

By the way Bellabox another subscription box I'm signed up to.The subscription cost $15 a month with free shipping Australia wide.

Have you received your BellaBox what are your thoughts on to this months box?

Violet Box April 2014

Violet Box is a subscription service that provides 4-6 premium beauty and lifestyle samples for the price of $22.95 a month.This is my third box and here is everything what I was sent in my April Box.



I won't be going into too much details of each products because I'm yet to try them so lets just see what things I got in my violet box.


Teeez Trend Cosmetics Chain Of Stones Nail Lacquer RRP $15 (full size):- I got melted copper color that also has shimmer in it.This is unfortunately not my color so I have decided to add this to my very first giveaway.The bottle is cute and will last for a while and by the way it's a holographic nail polish and I had never owned one of these before.

Be A Bombshell Eyeliner RRP $19 (Full Size):- I received this eyeliner in color midnight.In my previous violet box I received 2 full size product from this brand and god I adore them so I have high expectations from this product.Its a felt tip eyeliner in dark blue colour.I also swatched it on the back of my hand and after washing my hands several times during the day it's still there and has not really faded away.


Villainess Dulces En Feugo Whipped Body Creme RRP $15 For 170 g :- Now I have never ever heard of this brand before I was quite confused when I saw a little jar saying Villainess soaps I actually thought it was a cream soap but no it's a whipped body cream and says to slather gradually on all your dry spots.Its an American product I believe, Its purely white in colour and very smooth in consistency with a very strong fragrance very similar to old Vaseline I once had.

Cedel Scented Hairspray RRP $4.99 100g (full size) In Coconut Bay:- I'm extremely allergic to coconut I can not digest it internally but strangely I can use it externally without any drama so it will be fun playing with this beautiful looking spray can and see if it can keep my locks in place.My mum used to massage my head with coconut oil when I was a little girl and the smell of coconut never bothered me but it's been a long time so we see how we go as it's got a very strong coconut fragrance in it.

Bioderma Crealine H2O RRP $19.95 100 ml:- I have always wanted to try this product to remove my make up but could not be bother picking it up so I'm excited and happy to put this to test...I received a 20 ml bottle.Its a clear fragrance free micellar solution claims to cleanse impurities and remove makeup while respecting skin's natural balance.A 3 in 1 product for face and eyes and you don't need to rinse it off (how good is that).I can't read French but I assume all the instructions are written in French  on the back of the bottle since it's made in France.

So that's it no bonus product in April box and as always I m quite happy with what I have received.You can buy 4 of the products online from violet box here except the Cedel hairspray that you can get it from priceline.

Violet Box March
Violet Box February

LonVitalite C1 Whitening,Pigment Toning & Moisturising Facial Mask Review

Hello beauties

Today I'm going to review C1 Fabric FACE MASK by LONVITALITE.I bought The Complete Face Pack from them to pamper myself at home. Every week I use homemade + store bought facial masks but this has to be my favourite product that I'm loving at the moment.


C1

 I have slight pigmentation right on my nose along with sun damage underneath my left eye and its not really impressive at all.Although not many people can notice it but I know because its fairly visible to me.So I thought of giving C1 a go that is loaded with Vitamin C that is well known to brighten your skin tone and fade away any scars you might have on your face.

I have always used only cream/powder masks before and this is my cloth/fabric mask ever and NO its not messy like cream/mud mask.Each mask is well infused in serum full of essential vitamins and minerals to penetrate the skin and designed to reduce the appearance of pigment flaws including damaged caused by exposure to UVA and UVB by inhibiting the production of melanin.Application process is quite easy and has instructions well written along with pictures to help you how to use this mask.

When I pulled the mask out of its packaging it was fully covered in serum.I followed the instructions on the packaging and enjoyed my "ME TIME" in my own peaceful environment. I left it on for at least good 30 minutes (on the packaging it said 20 minutes) and by the time I took it off all the serum was completely soaked into my face and the mask was left dry.I than washed my face without making a mess and my face had this instant glow that I had experienced at my spa trips.My face looked well cleaned and brighter than usual.Since It was only one mask I think if I use it quite often say twice a week I would be able to see the results on my pigmentation and sun damaged spot.Overall, I think its a great mask to pamper yourself at an affordable price rather than making an appointment and driving down all the way to the spa.

A Quick Tip :- Don't throw the packaging straight away as you can put the serum left behind in the fridge and use it at night time later on or put it on your neck while you enjoy the mask

Facials are great way of keeping your skin hydrated and glowing when you are a busy bee like me so don't forget to pamper yourself and feed your skin the nutritions at the comfort of your own home.You can buy LONVITALITE masks here.Its an Australian based company who will also be shipping to USA,CANADA and UK so keep an eye on there website my overseas readers.The company also sells eye and hand masks that you might be interested to check out.

Cost For The Complete Face Pack:-$25 C1,C2,C3,C4,24K Gold

Have you used any mask from LonVitalite ?Which One?

Beauty Scenario Tag


Hey Guys 

I was recently tagged by beautiful Reshma from dazzlegloss3 to do the Beauty Scenario Tag.I love doing tags this is the second one and I think its a great way to get to know one another and there taste too..

You have to get rid of all your foundations and only keep one high end and one drugstore, which do you keep?



I just replaced my YSL's foundation with Benefits's Flawless that I picked up last week and I instantly fell in love with it.On the the other hand I also love Loreal's Nude Magique that gives me full coverage in one application.

You go for an interview and the lady interviewing you has lipstick on her teeth. 
Do you approach the subject or ignore it completely?

I don't need a job at this stage but if I ever end up going to an interview than yes I'll speak up and let the lady know politely about the lipstick on her teeth regardless of she gives me the job or not because this is something I can't stand.

You're not feeling yourself and you need a pick me up lipstick, which one do you go for?




I have the whole collection of Shanghai Suzy lipsticks and this is the stand out colour that gives me immense happiness and lift up my mood.Its called Miss Melissa a very hot pink lipstick.

You go back in time for a day to your teenage years, how would you do your hair and makeup differently?

As a teenager I was a tom-boy with thick eyebrows and mum used to do two like really tight braids (not even one) Ewww and If only I could I would have my hair down all the time (instead of braiding).BB cream and a pink lipgloss be like my besties...

You ask your hairdresser for a shoulder length pixie lott hair cut but they hear you wrong and give you a pixie hair cut. Do you a) smile, say thank you, leave, call your mum and cry hysterically b) cry in the chair and things get awkward or c) complain to the manager and demand a refund.

I always had long hair and I love them to pieces and If the hairdresser don't listen and ruin my hair than watch out I'll definitely complain to the manager and demand for a refund + come home crying......

Your friend surprises you with a 4 day city break and you have 1 hour to pack. 
Which 'do it all' palette do you pack in your makeup bag?

I wish but this will never happen in this life anymore but just to answer the question my NYX Madeleines and macaroons palette sorry I forgot to take the picture.Its so pretty and and I love it to bits.

Your house has been robbed, don't worry everyone is safe, but your beauty stash has been raided. What's the product you really hope is safe?




It was once robbed so I hope it does not happen again.YOU will laugh at me but here it is my drugstore Wet n Wild palette in Petal Pusher.I love the palette so much that I have not even touched it because I don't want to run out of it and I had it for about 6 months now.Quite often I open it, smile at it, and put it back SERIOUSLY.This is not something I can buy from priceline or target and although its not expensive at all but I cant afford to lose this.


Your friend borrows your makeup and returns it in awful condition. Do you a) just pretend you haven't noticed b) ask them to repurchase it or c) secretly do the same to something of theirs

Makeup is something I don't like to share but if I do decide to lend it and my friend does not return it to me in a condition I gave to her I'll just pretend that I did not see it.I don't like to make my friends upset and at the end of day its only makeup that I can repurchase it again.


So there you go hope you enjoy reading and feel free to tag yourself and tag me on twitter would love to read yours.

Nivea Lip Butter Review

Hey beautiful people

Hope this post finds you well...
Today I'm going to review NIVEA Lip Butter that I picked up from priceline. Most of you already know these fellows well but they are fairly new to me so I thought they deserve a little review from my side.



These lip butter tins/pots are available in four flavors that are Original,Caramel Cream,Vanilla & Macadamia.I only have two since I don't need all of them but I have seen the other two as well and let me tell you first they are slightly tinted (especially the raspberry one) but does not change the color of your lipstick at all if you do decide to wear any of these under your lipstick.

I like lip butters that actually come in a tin like these two I once had a pot of lip balm from URBAN RITUELLE in a pink tin that I loved to bits.The packaging is quite simple yet attractive well (to me).Its a decent size tin not too big not too small either and I do think that the price does provide justice to the amount of product is in the tin.The tin also stays shut if closed properly.

The formula is soft,seriously creamy and glossy and keep my dry flaky lips (blaming melbourne's weather) hydrated for at least good few hours.I have been using it only at night since I do use random balms/chapsticks including my own hand made one during the day.Its not my holly grail lip butter 
but I do LOVE it and the scent in caramel cream smells really tasty.You can buy these here.

Price $5.69

Do you have any of these flavors?What's your favourite lip butter?

Violet Box March 2014

This is my second violet box and unlike the last time its bit different.In february pretty much everyone scored same products where this time most people got sweet pea and fay and others like me ended up with a sinful nail polish.Anyways this post is going to be short and quick so lets see what violet box had in store for me,,,,,


Love Those lashes New Silk Strip lashes (Full Size):- Beautifully sitted in a pink case these silk lashes are made of finest material and claims to be reusable up to 15 times sounds great to me I'm very excited to put these lashes to test since they are reusable and can be resized to your needs and likes + shape of your eyes.Comes with glue.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish (Full Size):- I once received sinful nail polish in colour blue in my bellabox and I like it but I already have few shades similar to this colour so I'll happily give this one away.

Mirenesse Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine .05 oz:- Mirenesse products are hit or miss for me.I already have this colour from Model Co but I would still like to give this one a go since it claims to be a lip plumper and long term anti-aging lip treatment.

Starlooks Gem Pencil (Full  Size) :- I have heard enough about this product (mostly good) I received this in colour Topaz.It feels so soft and silver in colour.Adore it already.

Acorelle Night Cream 2ml (Sample Size):- Says to repair the skin after the stress it has been subjected to during the day and make it firmer.I m going to use it tonight as lately my skin looks fairly dull when it comes to end the long hectic day.Sadly its a 2ml sample tube.

Overall March box is OK compare to my other subscription boxes and would love to use most of the products from this box.

Have you received you VB? What are your thoughts?
