My third My Little Box arrived yesterday and I was so excited to see what was in this months box. When I saw that this box was called My Little Cosy box I just knew I was going to love what was inside – I just had a feeling – and I was right.
I have to admit when I saw the little box which says “all you need is coffee” I was a little disappointed as I don’t drink coffee and I thought it contained flavoured coffee or something. Then I opened it up and found this cute little espresso cup. I won’t use it for espresso but I think it will look really cute sat on my desk or dressing table.
Next up I saw the wheat bag, and I was really excited. I suffer from a lot of muscle and joint pain so I knew this would be great for soothing those pains. It is the perfect size for targeting small areas – and the perfect size to pop in my bag for work too. The other wheat bags I own are quite big and can be quite heavy so I am glad I now have a mini one. It would also be great as a hand warmer when the weather is really cold!
Inside the pouch was a mascara, eyeshadow and an eyeliner. First up is the My Little Beauty Mascara Soin Et Volume (volume and care mascara). I like the packaging of this product, it’s quite chunky and has a simple black and white circle design on half the tube. It has a fibre type brush that is the same size all the way along and is kind of medium in thickness. This is my favourite kind of brush, I have a small eye area so I tend to make a mess if I use a large brush and I get impatient with small brushes. I will report back on the formula once I have tried it out.
The single eyeshadow I received is the Yves Rocher Intense Colour Single Eyeshadow in 112 Brun Cafe Mat. It is a cool toned dark matte brown with a lovely smooth buttery finish. I’ve not used any products from Yves Rocher before but I am looking forward to trying this, I think it would be great as a subtle liner or to deepen the outer corner.
The final product I received is the Arcancil Starliner Waterproof Eyeliner in 001 Noir. I have used this today to tightline and it has not transferred to my waterline at all – which is a miracle for me. It has great pigmentation and glides on smoothly.
I think the combination of the three makeup products I received would create a lovely simple smokey eye – I think I might try this tomorrow.
Overall I am really pleased with this box. I think it is great value for money, the mascara alone costs more than the box! I am definitely going to keep my subscription running and I am looking forward to my next box. I hope it is Christmas/Winter themed!
