November Carmine Review

H everyone,

So I received my November Carmine box 2-3 weeks ago now but haven't had a chance to sit down and write a review on it because I've been swamped with Uni work and trying to get job applications done. Only one more week left now 'til Christmas and I'm so excited!
Carmine is a new monthly beauty box subscription service with the added touch of a wanting to create beauty community. With with my experience so far, Carmine is probably my favourite beauty subscription service. First of all their customer service is amazing. They always respond to you on Twitter, and when my October box got lost in the post they responded to my email within half an hour (I sent the email after 5 pm on a Thursday!!). A new box was shipped out to me the next day, with no hesitation, and I received it the day after that. They definitely know how to keep their customers happy!

Secondly, both the October and November boxes haven't disappointed. Both boxes have had a great mixture of make-up items and skin care. This month's box was a great follow up to the October box and certainly kept up with the standards set with the first box.

The November box was themed with items all linked to celebrities.

I got two skincare items and three makeup items.
Lulu's Time Bomb Flashback Night Cream
This has a lovely subtle sent and feels amazing on the skin.

Neom Organics Body Lotion
Body lotion is one of my weaknesses and this is great. It's light and doesn't  leave my skin feeling greasy, while having a Rosemary scent which isn't overbearing. The scent might not be for everyone, but I like it.


Dainty Doll Eyeliner Pencil in Shake Your Tail Feather: 
This is a gorgeous teal colour and adds a lovely pop of colour to the eye. It's quite a hard eyeliner but when warmed slightly, glides on smoothly and stays all day.

Cosmetics A La Carte Brow Ink in Blonde:
 The felt tip pen makes this so easy to use. It also doubles up as a liquid liner.

New CID i-Pout Lipstick in Very Cherry:
I love this lipstick and is the perfect wine colour for the winter months. It has great pigmentation and it stays on the lips so well. The packaging has an inbuilt light and mirror which is so handy for those touch-ups on a night out.

So that's everything that was in my Carmine box. Carmine is quickly becoming my favourite box. The service is amazing and the products are fantastic. If you haven't signed up to Carmine already then you can do so here. You can still get your hands on the October and November boxes and I would highly recommend them for a Christmas treat, for you or a friend. I cannot wait for the December box!
