I’ll admit that I’m not really a huge fan of monthly beauty boxes: they get a little repetitive and not that exciting, but I was so impressed when the new Spring Tili Beauty Box by QVC came in! Since it is only seasonal, it seems to be a little more substantial with some great QVC brands, which I don’t regularly see in other beauty boxes.

Available online at QVCUK.com, this beauty box includes some of my favourite cult brands in very generous travel sizes. For £20 you get a carefully curated edit of skincare, makeup, nails, haircare, bath & body products which makes this box a must-have if you will be travelling at all this spring/summer.

Let’s delve deeper into the box….

Exclusive to QVC, there is the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer 75ml in Coconut Breeze: a pre-shampoo treatment that super conditions hair whilst adding shine & bounce. This Coconut Breeze edition is an exotic coconut scent which really remind me of holiday and which I’ll be packing on my next beach adventure.

There are two makeup offerings: the Mally Shadow Stick in Smoky Quartz and Dolly 10 Lip Velvet in Material Girl. Both brands are available on QVC but I actually haven’t ever tried anything from Dolly 10 before. I always get excited to try new brands and am really impressed by the Lip Velvet; I love the nudey colour, it has a mousse-like texture, which leaves the lips matte but still comfortable and not too harsh. I’ve tried a few things from Mally before and always been very impressed, this Shadow Stick is no different and it has already made it into my makeup bag.

If skincare is more your thing then this box won’t disappoint as there are some must-have cult classics. There is a 15ml Pixi Glow Tonic; an exfoliating toner that helps perfect skin tone and texture as well as the This Works In Transit Camera Close Up – one of my favourite multi-purpose products: it’s a mask, moisturizer and primer all-in-one. Finally for skincare, there is a small Decleor Smoothing Oil Serum in Mandarin – which is a super serum that draws on Mandarin Essential Oil’s abilities to protect cells from Radical Damage; cleanses and detoxifies – as well as the Elemis Gentle Foaming Facial Wash to remove pollutants and impurities from the skin whilst maintaining the skins natural oils.

Everyone always needs bath and shower gels and there are two offerings in this box: a 50ml Molton Brown one and an Australian Body Care Tea Tree Oil Skin Wash.

To add a final splash of colour to your spring, there is the much-loved Essie Mint Candy Apple, the perfect crème mint shade.

Overall, I think this is an impressive box for any beauty junkie and I wasn’t disappointed in a single product – which has gotten particularly rare in beauty boxes. Since receiving this box, I have found myself reaching for its contents on a daily basis.

As I am sure most of you have noticed the ASOS sale has started a little earlier than most other shops. As it isn’t often you see beauty items on sale (well in comparison to clothes) I thought I would edit the sale down to my top 9 picks.

1. Sophie Webster Nail Wraps £5.50 // Illamasqua Snow Glitter £11 // Lord & Berry Lip Colour £11 // OPI I snow you Love me £8.50 // Benefit  Hot to Trot £19.50// Pixi eyeshadow set £18 // Hersheson Ion Brush £17.50 // Makeup Bag £6.50 // OPI Minnie Style £8.50 

The sale isn’t actually a whole load cheaper, just a few pounds here and there but there are still some great products especially if you are after some great Nail polish colours. I actually have these Nail Rock Wraps and am saving them as they are my absolute favourite. I’ve actually had this Illamasqua Snow Glitter polish on my wishlist on my eye as it just looks like magical snow and unlike any other nail polish I own. The Lord & Berry Lip colour set seems like an absolute steal, four lip pencils for just £11!

Yesterday I posted a picture on my Instagram and Twitter of my makeup for NYE, I didn’t do much so didn’t want to go for a smoky eye. I had seen this glittery gold eye earlier in the week and had fallen in love so wanted to recreate something quite similar.

 I had a search through all of my eyeshadows to find some gold’s but there wasn’t one that was really impressive enough so I decided to pack on a few together. I started with Urban Decay Half Baked and then added a couple of Sleek Shades, once I was happier with the colour I added a very light contour using a Urban Decay Matte medium toned brown.

But there wasn’t enough sparkle!

I had a look through my makeup stash and found this unloved Collection 2000 Glam Crystal eyeliner, I’m not really a fan of glitter eyeliner any more so I had almost forgotten about this! I dabbed a lot onto the back of my hand and using my rind finger I pressed it onto my eyelid. This worked really well as it made it extra sparkly and the stickiness of the liner meant that the glitter didn’t fall as easily as it would of with a pigment or highglitter eyeshadow. It also means that my glitter eyeliner finally got some love and I found a new way to use it.

To finish my eyes I also used some Lauren’s Way Lashes which I thought were far too crazy at first. I was quite impressed by them; they were easy to apply, weren’t too heavy and I really liked the shape. I have a few more of her lashes at home which I am now excited to use! They aren’t overly natural or some that you could wear during the day but they are great for a night out. For the Liquid Eyeliner I used the Rimmel Exaggerate liquid eyeliner, due to the graininess of the glitter you will need to press the liner on more than usual.

 In the first picture I am wearing a YSL lipstick however I then remembered I had this Pixi Lip&Line which I hadn’t tried(Image Below). I must admit I wasn’t expecting fall in love but I did. Very quickly and quite deeply really. I’m looking forward to writing a post about this lipstick so I won’t go into too much detail but it is in the colour Fresh Pink.

On my skin I was wearing Photo Ready by Revlon, my usual Sleek Contour Kit, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer and some Mac Powder. Eyebrows: HD Brow kit

What did your NYE makeup look like?
I shouldn’t have to do this, especially as it is my own blog! I know many of you do not like my pout, which is fine. However I have acknowledged this but I don’t like my smile so there’s not much I can do about that. If it bothers you that much than please just don’t read my Face Of the Day posts. I know many of you are not saying this to be mean but it’s just how I am choosing to take my pictures.
