Smokey purple-y eyes


I love my Graze box!

Well as you can see from the above pic I’ve started getting Graze boxes delivered once a week! Graze offers healthy, tasty, low calorie snacks of your choice delivered to your door on a day that you choose for just £3.79. The box is slim enough to fit through your letterbox so you don’t have to wait in for it. 
I was actually lucky cos I got an email from groupon offering me 4 boxes for a fiver, bargain! And then when I got all registered they told me my 1st box would be free anyway! :)
My first box contained sweet chilli crackers (they got eaten straight away!) fruit and nut flapjack (my daughter stole two of these haha) berry mix and vanilla seeds. I liked everything I received in my nibble box, too much in fact it all got eaten so fast lol, so next week I have chosen the nutrition box instead, which is perfect for pre and post–gym snacks. You can mix and match your snacks though, you just get on the website and choose what things you like and cross the things you aren’t keen on.  Check your inbox and see if this offer is still valid, but if not to claim your FREE graze box enter this code K2PH935C at www.graze.com. UK only. xxx

New Eve cosmetics

So today was a rubbish ole’ monday for most people but not for me! :D I woke up to a parcel from a brand new make up company called New Eve Cosmetics! This is what New Eve have to say about their products on their website-

“New Eve is a multi-purpose makeup brand. Each product has multiple uses. New Eve Cosmetics offers a new range of multi-purpose makeup products designed to enhance beauty, as well as to be practical. All of our products have multiple uses, to help reduce the clutter in your handbag. Two or three products can provide a complete makeup set.”
The products I received are- two different 3 in 1 eyeshadow blush and bronzer sets, a 2 in 1 mascara and eyeliner pencil, a 2 in 1 twist up eyeliner pencil and liquid liner, and 2 in 1 false lashes. 

So the eyeshadow/blusher products come in black and transparent packaging so you can see which colours are inside (which is handy if you are in a rush!) and there is a small mirror inside the lid. The actual packaging is nice and strong and not flimsy in the slightest so you can feel safe in the knowledge that the product will not smash open in your handbag and decorate all of your things with eyeshadow! The eyeshadow itself feels soft to the touch but is still quite hard-wearing and it is highly pigmented which is great because you don’t need to use much at all. I swatched them all onto my hand (see above) WITHOUT primer and I left it on as I went about my day and it lasted for hours so as you can see its really good stuff. 
Lets flip it over now, literally haha! On the other side of the eyeshadow palette is the blusher/bronzer which comes with a handy little brush and it is very soft to the touch meaning it is very easy to blend and it has a lovely flowery smell to it. Because these products are multi-purpose they take up little room in your handbag or makeup bag. So basically in one small handsize palette you have 8 eyeshadows, 2 bronzers a mirror and a brush. Wow.
Next is the twist up eyeliner and liquid liner duo, I’m not going to say too much about this other than it has firmly replaced my old eyeliner and liquid liner, so I think that says enough!
I havent tried the eyelashes yet but I have got them out and touched them (as you do!) and they feel quite strong and very similar to the Eyelure Midnight range.
The 2 in 1 eyeliner and mascara is living in my handbag already!
I would really recommend New Eve Cosmetics to anyone. Especially if you are already a fan of Sleek or Barry M.
You can buy all of these products from www.newevecosmetics.com also check out their facebook page- www.facebook.com/newevecosmetics. If you have any enquiries just ask Queen on the facebook page, she is such a beaut! :)
