My very first Carmine Box

And so it arrived! My very first Carmine Beauty Box. I thought i would give it a go after reading some great reviews on other beauty blogs. I do still subscribe to GlossyBox but im afraid last months box disappointed they only have December to change my mind.
So the box is black and a lift off lid...which in my opinion was super tricky to open, in fact it took two people:)

After shaking and pulling at it for 5 minutes it revealed...

After unwrapping that bow (every time i receive a box it feels like christmas) inside i found...

Neom Organics Body Lotion
Dainty Doll Eyeliner Pencil
i-Pout lipstick
Lulu's Time Bomb Flashback Night Cream
Cosmetics A La Carte Brow Ink.

Upon closer inspection...This cream is an organic product packed with fragrances of lavender and jasmine. I personally love the smell but i can easily see how some would not as it is very strong.

Lulus Time Bomb Flashback night cream
Well i shall be 27 soon so might as well start turning the clock back now! Ill be writing a review on this for sure.

This lipstick has a very high end look about it and i love the white packaging!

Dont be fooled...its more than a has a built in light and mirror...perfect for the dance floor:)

Swatched (Colour Pink Bliss.

Its very thick and creamy. I absolutely love it. The colour is a darker pink than i usually go for but i will be wearing this at christmas parties for sure!

Dainty Doll eyeliner. This brand Dainty Doll has been made by Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud (Redhead). The reason behind this brand is that Nicola always struggled to buy make up for her incredibly pale complexion. It can be bought in Boots and id say was mid priced so more than Rimmel but less than Dior. Anyway this eyeliner isn't very good! Its so hard!! Not creamy at all so i don't think it would be very easy to line my eyes with.I had to press super hard to get any colour payoff on my arm as shown below. In short don't buy it...theres lots of better eyeliners on the market and cheaper!

Brow Ink. This is a great product if you have light eyebrows that need filling in. The tip applicator allows for super thin natural lines to be made. It isn't of any use to me personally as my eye brows are black.

And as with other beauty boxes you get the information bit! Although no prices mentioned about full size products.

All in all im impressed with my first Carmine box and am looking forward to my December box already.x
