Glossy box + Carmine box. January, 2012

After a great disappointment from Friday, I finally receive my Glossybox and Carmine box today! The two boxes came along with my Secret Valentine's (SV) and two other swaps. I will be doing review of the two boxes now! (perhaps the SV later as there are a lot to go through)

First I will do a review on Glossybox
The glossybox for this month has been quite late compared to the previous ones.
The theme for this one is Valentines
As usual, the box come in a glossy box wrapping

and in it it's a bright pink colour box!!!

I was super excited because I would like to know which one I have got. there are three different boxes in this month according to the glossyblog. I just cannot wait to open it!!!!

There's a card with roses first

And after that, it's the bow and the sticker is a heart, which replaces the normal glossybox logo
I like the heart a lot and it's cute!

The first Item I see is the Eyeko Skinny eyeliner. It is the one that everybody talks about and how great it is. The colour that I've got is powder pink.

But to my opinion, this is not pink at all:

This eyeliner has a long handle and I think it will help my hand to stablise when I put the liner on~

The next item that I get is the Davines moisturising balm. According to the detail on the tube, it is a multi-purpose balm where you can apply on your face, hair and body.

The third item is from DAVINES as well. It's a cleansing Nectar.

This is suppose to cleanse both hair and body. Since I have very sensitive hair scalp and skin, I am not sure whether this will be gentle enough.

The forth item is First Aid Beauty gentle body wash

I have never heard of the brand before and it doesn't contain any fragrance. I have too many body washes. This might be useful for my Munich trip during Easter ;)

Lastly it's the Murad Hybrids Skin perfecting primer - dewy finish

According to other bloggers, this primer contains some colour. One of my friends is a big friend of Murad and I think I might let her have a go as a pressie :)

This is all the items in the box:

To conclude, I am quite satisfied with the stuff in the glossybox this month.

Then turn to CARMINE. I am a bit disappointed because it didn't arrive last week when everybody was excited about.

and it comes in the normal, hard-lifting box

and there's a card telling how you can get the next box free!

First in the box that I've noticed is the Balance me radiance face oil.

I am not a big fan of face oil and I had some irritation with it. I think I am going to swap this with other people.

Second in the box that I noticed is the Eldora False eyelashes

It's kind of natural and the one that I would like to wear. therefore I am quite impressed with this!

The third one is West Lab Hilmalayan Pink salt

I cannot really use this because I don't have a bath! I have reported in the November Carmine box that not everybody has a bath and it would be a waste if I cannot have it. Please contact me if you would like to have it!

The forth one is Korres Wild Rose 24-hour moisturising & brightening cream

I like rose but I have too many cream at the moment. I would like to give it a try after I have cleared my stock!

The last one is another Eyeko product - Fat Eye stick, I get the petrol blue colour

I am not super fan of blue eyeliner (and I mentioned in carmine that i would like some natural colours like black and charcoal).... But it's a very cute looking stick :)

Once again, a full box in Carmine Jan Box

I will give both glossybox and Carmine box another go, and see which one I will cull or I will keep both. I have already culled the Amaraya one.

Thanks for reading :)
