Look: Dusky Pink (Autumn)

Dusky Pink is the colour to have this autumn, its on the catwalks in all forms but most importantly its inspiring beauty looks and nail varnish trends. As the lips go bolder is shades of berry eyes go softer is pink hues. I created this look with neutral lips and slightly smokey eyes instead of my usual black eyeliner.

Review: ModelCo More Brows Fibre Gel

With this months GlossyBox I recieved the ModelCo More Brows Fibre Gel. I knew before hand that this was likely to be in my September box due to the sneak peek they gave us. I was excited about trying this product as I usually just use a black eyeshadow or pencil through my brows but I am terrible at remembering to set them and have ended up with smudged brows on more occasions that I care to think about. It just isn’t a good look.

GlossyBox September ModelCo More Brows

I tried this out straight away and I can tell you it’s worth the money. It goes on wet and sets dry so my main problem is solved. The coverage is perfect as long as you don’t go to heavy handed but you also have to want the bold brow so only a little bit isn’t going to get you your desired effect.

To use the product:
Just unscrew the wand from the bottle as you do with mascara and then brush the your eyebrows upwards (don’t press as this will cake your skin with product. Its that simple to get bold brows.

GlossyBox September ModelCo More Brows Fibre Gel Review

It comes in two shades light-medium and medium-dark. If you haven’t got your GlossyBox yet I’d get it for this product alone which is worth £14.95 for 3.5ml and you get the full size product.

Glossy Box September Revealed

Its that time of the year when the summer holidays have come to an end, the kids are back at school and the weather is cooling off. The evenings can be spent with a little more pampering especially when it gets a little colder. The september glossy box is full of little treats that are perfect for heading into the autumn months.

You may of may not have noticed I didn’t review the August box, that’s because I didn’t really feel there was anything worth review bar one product which I will use a couple more times before the review goes up. There are still some July product reviews to go up but all in good time. Lets have a look at this months box.

This will cost you £15.50 for 200 ml.
