Today is LQM&M's 1st birthday... I really cannot believe I have been blogging for a year now, it seem's crazy that I've managed to keep my attention on one thing for so long. It obviously shows how much I enjoy it.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all my lovely readers; the regular ones, the occasional stoppers by and the stumblers - you are all equally as important as each other. So THANK YOU!
I love being part of such a great community and to be able to network with so many like minded (crazy) people is an absolute pleasure. Here's to the next year... and the year after that... and the year after that...
I headed to London to wish my best friend off on her trip to Swaziland (For those of you who don't know she is going for 3 months as part of a charity project). She will be blogging over on Tumblr whilst she is out there - Follow her adventure!
Whilst in London I stopped off in Ladurée - a Parisian style tea room in Covent Garden with my close friend Shay. It was wonderful - We ate caramel and sea salt macarons and drank the Ladurée special - china tea infused with orange blossom, cinammon and violet.
The service was fantastic, the food and drink delicious and the setting perfect - we sat on the roof terrace so could watch the street entertainers all day.
This months long awaited limited edition GlossyBox was well worth the wait, I think this may well be my favourite box to date, plus it was a Valentines day special so it came in a hot pink box with a cute heart sweet to munch on (I'm saving mine for the special day!).
Let's get started with the reviews...
Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Midnight Blue - From reading other bloggers review I have seen this come in many different shade, but I was happy with this deep bluey/black colour. It's a matte finish and has a very thin nib on the end for precision, which was great. It's also really long lasting and although I wouldn't usually go for this colour, I think it's great!
Full Size - £9.50
Clarins Extra Firming Night Cream - For those of you who know me will be the first to point out that I LOVE Clarins products so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see two of their creams in my box! I've never tried either of these creams before but the night cream is wonderful. Although thick, it doesn't feel like you are covering yourself in cream; it almost melts away. And in the morning my skin was noticeably softer.
Full size - £48
Clarins Extra Firming Day Cream - Again, this product made me skin feel so soft, and it's thinner than the night cream so can be worn perfectly under any makeup as a base without feeling tacky.
Full size - £46.50
FAB Gentle Body Wash/Moisturiser - I've never used FAB products before, and this was probably my least favourite item this month, but it still has great benefits. It's a very thin moisturiser, and it's so easy to apply. I wasn't keen on the smell but once it has sunk in my skin felt like silk.
Full size - £10
Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer - I have always wanted to try Murad products before, and after using this, I really wish I had! This primer is almost perfect; actually, I'd go as far to say it is perfect. It has a dewy finish (which I love), it's so easy to apply and made my skin glow. It even has a slight tint to it so it makes the perfect base before applying your make up. This one is a must have girls!
Full size - £29
I'd love to hear your reviews to these products too, so please write them below, plus add any tips of tricks you have too!
Also, a BIG thank you to the GlossyBox team for this month's box.
