Filthy Gorgeous Nail Polish: This looks a really bright orange red in the bottle but once you actually apply it the colour is more blue toned which is really strange! It also shows up on camera as a blue toned red which is really odd because in person it really looks orangey! Not really my colour and I'm not keen on the round bottle, looks like of cheap to me, not really sure why but the formula is nice and it applies really nicely. 

Comfort Zone Body Expert Kit: I'm really OCD about trying these because of the mix up with out of date samples being put in last months box and I'm really weird with things like that so I'm not sure I will use them! They look interesting though so perhaps I may give them a go and ignore my OCD thoughts haha! I particularly like the sound of the Fruity Peel Exfoliator and Tranquillity Cream.

Mischa Barton Luscious Lips: I love the colour of this and it's a shame it doesn't show up at all on the lips! It literally looks clear to me. It's a really lovely hydrating texture and makes my lips feel nice too but it smells a bit too much like a little kids lip balm I had when I was in primary school so the £12 price tag seems a little steep to me. The packaging is a bit boring too, I think it would look nicer a slightly flatter, wider shape but perhaps that's just me! I will probably use this but don't think I would buy it otherwise because of the smell.

Bellapierre Shimmer Powder: This is such a gorgeous Champagne colour and the shimmer is so flipping lovely! I was hoping to use this as a face highlighter but I think it's a but too shimmery for that which is a shame so I will probably be using this as an eyeshadow or something. If you wanted something to highlight your collarbones, etc on a night out this would be great too. The colour reminds me of a more shimmery version of Urban Decays Virgin so this would look lovely with the original Naked palette.

 Bharti Vyas The Ultimate Therapy Face and Neck Polisher: I love the smell of this and the walnut flakes in it really appeal to me as I love the texture of nut shavings as exfoliators. I used to use a shower smoothie with almond flakes in it and loved it so this really caught my eye. It smells amazing too, can't quite put my finger on it but it's a nice subtle creamy smell which I love. I love how it wobbles in the pot too! Haha! (see the video for wobbling!)

Erno Laszlo The Hollywood Collection: This is such a lovely bonus item! All the samples are way out of my budget so I could never hope to re purchase them should I like them but I love the fact I have the opportunity to try them!

Lindt Lindor Chocolate Egg: It's chocolate. Enough said.
