I had an interesting delivery yesterday - a box of goodies from Carmine! As you know, Carmine is now no more and has been merged with Glossybox. I won a 3 month subscription for Carmine just before they announced it was to be closed and, shortly afterwards, they said they would send me a box of goodies to make up for it! I hadn't previously been a subscriber to Carmine, but from reading other blogs, it was certainly the box I preferred, so I was sad to see it go.
So what did I get:
Diego Dalla Palma Mini Lipstick - quite like the look of this and from a quick swatch, it seems quite creamy and moisturising.
I-Pout New CID Lipstick - this looks like a versatile my-lips-but-better shade. Not too sure about the packaging or the gimmicky 'torch' feature though!
Soft Paris Strawberry Balm - two of these arrived! First impressions are that it smells very nice but I haven't tried it yet.
Eyeco Fat Eye Stick in Charcoal - I like this shade but I fear it will crease very easily on my oily lids!
Vera Valenti Pencil Liner in Black - this feels quite scratchy and not all that pigmented. Will give it a go though.
Weleda Pomegranate Creamy Body Wash - I'm excited to try this as I love Weleda products!
Blingtone Myface Cosmetics Eyeshadow Silver Screen - this looks quite glittery, I think it will need to be used with a good primer as otherwise it looks prone to fallout!
KMS Quick Blow Dry Spray - I've heard about this from other blogs and wanted to try it for a while, anything that speeds up my morning routine would be good!
Time Technology Cream - I don't know much about this or what type of skin it is aimed at but I'm sure it will find a home!
Vera Valenti Polish - A bright pink shade which I already have several dupes for.
Andrea Fullerton Polish in Joanna - I haven't tried any Andrea Fullerton polishes before and I like the shimmer in this.
Memo EDP samples in Sundance and Inle - I've never heard of this perfume so I will add it to my ever growing box of perfume samples!
Japonesque Smudger Brush - another brush in my collection is always useful and I haven't tried any Japonesque brushes before.
I'm looking forward to trying the KMS spray and Weleda Body Wash in particular.
Have you tried any of these products?
