My Little Frenchie Box

I apologise for the lack of posts lately, but with the full family being ill (again!), I am finding it hard to juggle everything. I really wanted to share the contents of this months My Little Box* with you though, so I am back with a quick review and lots of photos.

This month, the box is called the 'Frenchie' box and it was curated by Inès de La Fressange (French model, aristocrat, fashion designer, and perfumer). The full box is very chic and features a perfect selection of beauty and lifestyle pieces. 

I adore all the little details. The illustrations, the ribbon, the design of the box etc.

The beauty items in the Frenchie box include:

By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly in shade 3 Bronze Generation - I am soooo pleased with this one. I have been meaning to order one of these for ages, but the price is quite high for an eye pencil. Bronze Generation is a stunning black with olive undertones and lots of gold micro shimmer. Oh my... it is stunning! Depending on the light, it can look totally black with gold speckles or totally green with a lot of gold sparkle. The formula is amazing and can be used as a pencil, allover the lid or as a base. Creamy, easy to apply and long lasting!

L'Oreal Brow Artist in shade 04 Dark Brunette - I am pleasantly surprised with this pencil. With a dark brown shade on one end, clear wax on the other and a little brush on the cap, it is perfect for quickly filling in my brows. 

My Little Beauty Face Tint - A peachy toned, moisturising primer for a fresh, glowing complexion.

DHC Oil Blotting Papers - With my T-zone going absolutely crazy during my 2nd trimester, I need blotting papers more than ever. Perfect handbag size and you get 100 sheets in the pack.

The two lifestyle additions this month are a chic phone case (it fits the new iPhone and smaller phones) and a lovely little jar of inspirational quotes. I love quirky bits and bobs like that, so I couldn't be happier with these!

Overall, I loooove the contents of this months box, but I know that some MLB subscribers were disappointed that all the accessories included in the boxes so far were for Apple devices, some people didn't like the little jar of quotes either and found it pointless. I personally adore it! The beauty bits are all perfect too this month too, especially the By Terry Crayon Khol.

  10. I am subscribed to my little box and I was disappointed and I hate to say it because it's my favourite beauty subscription, I felt this monthly box was a little gimmicky. Fingers crossed for March :) x


  11. The box is really adorable! Loving everything that is in it!

  12. I have seen these boxes a few times now and was never really that sure about them, but this box is so adorable - I love everything in it (especially the quotes!) They would be perfect on my desk at work. I might even look at treating myself to be honest - It seems like a nice treat to receive every now and then - We're worth it eh?!
