My Beauty Box November

There will be no or limited swatches for a while. Due to the weather and season, I cannot take a prober picture. Out lights are the kind that gives out an orange light which kinda screws up the pictures. Until I get my hands on a lamp with "natural" light, I cant swatch.

Just got my second box from MyBeautyBox and I'm very happy about it! Not as exited as I was with the first but still very happy!

The logo has been updated - sweet!

The topic this week is "Fall Trends" 

Rimmel, 1000 Kisses Lip Tint, Grippy Grape
The trend here is dark lips and these lip tints are the newest of the new; Tush for the lips! The color is a nice dark grape with plenty of red tones. Its a bit hard to apply but when you find the trick it smooths on easy. It contains Propylparaben  but not any other of the 17 EDC´s

Word of caution, this lip tint will make ALL of the lips visible, with any dryness exposed. Use a good lip scrub before using! 
After application, add the moisturising balm and you re done. The lip tint isn't the best in my opinion. Hard to make even and it doesn't seem to stick to the lips.

Clean&Clear Fast Clearing Spot Treatment
The trend is picture perfect skin (like that ever goes out of style). A concentrated formula for quick aid when that nasty pimple shows its red face! Supposedly ease the swelling and size in just a few hours. C&C is specialised in acne and sells in pharmacies. It contains 2% salicylic acid. I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of natural remedies in this like Witch Hazel and several kinds of bark extracts. None of the 17 EDC´s! It does contain alcohol, so be sure to use a good moisturizer when your spot has gone. I hope it works, because I been haunted by spots around the nose and its getting on my nerves.

Essie Nail polish, Tart Deco 
The trend is pretty nails as everything goes this season. This is a nice pale peach color (I think I already have it tough). Essie is famous for its formaldehyde free polishes. I only tried Essie once before and that was no success.
Retail is 125Dkr, however Nicehair have it for 79Dkr,  Get it HERE

Jemma Kidd Make Up School, Tone on Tone Duo, Tweed
The trend is Metallic eyes. I'm indifferent about this. It is a nice item but Jemma Kidd went out of business earlier this month. Not so much fun getting from a brand that no longer exists. 

Its a nice two tone duo, with one in a subtle shine while the other is a shimmery metallic. There´s a brochure with instructions on how to use the duo. This is perfect for the holiday season!
Retail is 210Dkr

All in all I'm a very happy camper! Full size products and new trends to try out. The coupon to their web shop   for 30% off Urban Decay Midnight Emergency Kit + Benefit Finding Mr. Bright and free shipping for the Sally Hansen Hand duo was very appreciated as well. 

Fun Fact of the Day: Did you know that many of your favorite magazines was founded in the 1800? Cosmopolitan was founded in 1886
