Pride Edit Glossybox Unboxing | August 2018

Happy Sunday everybody! Another month means it’s time for another beautiful Glossybox delivery – yay! This month is an extra special box as it’s the Pride edit!

Pride is all about celebrating everybody – it’s about love, happiness, bright colours and everything happy! With that in mind, it’s no wonder that this box was full of colourful, shimmery goodness.

I have to say, I think this is probably one of my most favourite Glossybox edits of the year – it’s just my kind of style and includes products that I’ll be able to use for the longterm.

Seen as this box was inspired by Pride, I thought I’d go all out with a little bit of crazy, sparkly makeup to match the mood. If you like the glitter I’m wearing and would like some for yourself, it’s actually from a gorgeous little company called Dust and Dance. You can save 10% on any glitter by clicking here and using my discount code, RACHAEL10. Part of the proceeds from all glitters sold are donated to YoungMinds – the mental health charity, so you can sparkle and support a great cause at the same time!

I hope you enjoy my unboxng video below – if you do, please don’t forget to hit the thumbs up and subscribe to my channel before you leave.

Remember, spread love, squash hate and don’t forget to SMILE!

Benefit Hello Happy Foundation review: Faddy or Fabulous?

When I first saw the packaging of the new Benefit Hello Happy Foundation, I must admit, I was a little surprised! It isn’t the same sort of cutesy packaging that the rest of the products in the brand have, but there’s no denying that it’s super cute in a fresh, new way!

My friend put it a good way when she said it reminded her of the Charlotte Tilbury packaging – I totally see where she’s coming from the super-shiny metallic lid that the foundation bottle boasts. This is a piece that will look undoubtedly interesting and pretty in your makeup collection!

The front of the bottle (or the back, depending on how you want to call it) features a little smiley face with hearts for eyes. Super kawaii, right?!

I first got to test this foundation out this weekend when I headed over to my local Benefit counter. I didn’t realise beforehand, but Benefit have actually brought two sizes out in this new little beauty. A 30ml offering that retails at £25.50, and tiny cutesy 6ml version which retails for £8.50. I think this a smart move for Benefit’s sales team. Not everybody wants to commit to a full sized foundation without trying it out first, so the mini travel size is perfect for those with commitment issues or those that want a smaller version to take on their travels.

The foundation comes in 12 shades ranging from very light to pretty dark. I love that the fairest shade is actually a great match for my skin tone. I always struggle to find foundations that match me thanks to my extremely fair skin. (Just to put it into perspective, MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid in NC15 is too dark for me!) I picked the teeny tiny 6ml version up for my Mum in the colour 02 which is a great match for her fair skin tone. She has a little more warmth in her skin than I do, but is still quite fair on the spectrum so 02 was a perfect choice for her.

Of course, I couldn’t resist trying out the foundation for myself for my blog after my mum asked if I’d like to review it. The foundation is marketed as a lightweight, light-medium coverage foundation. It has soft-focus optical blurring spheres which basically means it helps to blur out imperfections whilst still looking very natural.

I would say that the foundation errs more on the light coverage than the medium – I could still see my fairest of freckles through it even after adding a second layer. It feels very lightweight on the skin and extremely comfortable to wear too. As for blurring the skin, I feel like there’s other options out there which have a stronger blurring effect, but overall, this did work quite well and I think the claim is a fair one to make.

I used the foundation on top of my regular moisturiser and without any setting powders and found it to last quite well throughout the day. If you’re a person that prefers their skin to look super natural but with an evened-out effect, I think you’ll enjoy this foundation. I do feel that the foundation is quite pricey for what it is – especially the travel version (it really is teeny tiny!) but you are essentially paying for the brand name behind it. Overall, it’s a cute and quirky little addition to the Benefit family and I can see it going down a treat with tweens and the more mature audience alike.

My beautiful daughter bought this today for me to try. I did not want to make a comittment to buy the larger suze as I wanted to see how this would be on my skin tone. I wanted a very light coverage and this seems just perfect for me. I will updat when I have tried this product and let you know what I think xx.

Under The Sea July 2018 Glossybox unboxing

Hello my beauties! Welcome back to another unboxing post and video! Today it’s the turn of the fabulous Under the Sea Glossybox! As I’m sure you might have guessed, there’s somewhat of a mermaid theme running through this months box along with some beach babe vibes. In other words, it’s a perfect combination for these hazy, sunny days!

I love the design of this months box, the gorgeous water-inspired box just fits perfectly with my Pisces vibe and is a gorgeous change from the usual pretty pink Glossybox (which I adore!)

This month, it’s all about feeling totally tropical and Glossybox have treated us to an extra bonus sample this time taking the product count up to six instead of five.

I hope that you enjoy my unboxing video below – leave me a comment and let me know what you think of the box this month! Don’t forget to subscribe if you’re new!
