All over the internet there are a million glam festival guides about how to do make-up and using wipes and all the usual stuff; I thought I’d do one that’s a bit less glamorous but the items are none the less very useful.
All in all a great box! I’m especially impressed with the tweezers, the dermablend & the Sun lotion which is the perfect travel size. The Bronzer if decanted into an empty compact is actually a nice colour as well.
I’m in love with stippling brushes and was always sceptical of the beauty blender sponge as I’ve never really liked sponges…Until the lovely Bobby gifted me a beauty blender. It’s AMAZING, absolutely amazing.
The sponge expands when wet and sheers down heavy foundations so they are more easily blended; in particular it works great with heavy foundations like Illamasqua Rich Liquid, Vichy Dermablend and Estee Lauder Double Wear.

It’s not often I like to write a post completely trashing a product & suggesting it’s of no worth to anyone whatsoever but in this case, I feel justified. I was going out the other night and realized I didn’t have a set of lashes to wear & decided to try the ones from the May Glossy Box – Eldora False Eyelashes – from £3.90.
I’m surprised I wasn’t permanently blinded to be quite honest. After applying them, my first impression was of how heavy they were, they had a particularly thick, rigid seam & were so heavy my eyes kept watering – they were completely distorting my vision. Worst of all was the glue which wasn’t working at all and where I tried to re-stick them a number of times, it left my eyes with sore red patches & sealed up my eye liner so it began flaking off & couldn’t be touched up properly.
In the end I took them off at my friends house as I just couldn’t see & he applied a lovely Ardell set, really thin seam & lovely effect €1.50 from eBay. Just to wrap up; I wouldn’t recommend these lashes to anyone; the glue just doesn’t work and where it gets a build up on skin can leave it very sore and irritated. I’ll put a pic below of the set Eoin put on, I had the joy of having my make-up touched up by an Illamasqua make-up artist after the eyelash debacle so it wasn’t all bad :)
