The May My Little Box has a Friday Night theme, which I think is a nice idea. It’s a good contrast to the very spring-inspired Garden box from April, so I was really looking forward to finding out what would be inside.
Nail Varnish by Nail Matic
I didn’t have high hopes for this nail varnish based on the last one I got in My Little Box. However, as it’s from a different brand I tried not to judge too quickly!
I like the orangey-peach colour: it’s perfect for spring and summer and I don’t have any other nail varnishes like it. It needs three coats to get a solid colour (which is a bit of a pain) but it did dry quite quickly. It lasted a fair few days before I noticed any chips.
My Little Beauty Eye Liner
I was excited to try this eyeliner because I like the My Little Beauty products and I wear eyeliner a lot.
I used it along my upper lash line to see how it compared to other eyeliners I’ve used. It was really smooth and easy to apply.
The only negative was that it left a smoky black smudge around and under my eyes. Saying that, I don’t think I’ve ever found a pencil eyeliner that hasn’t left me with smudges by the end of the day.
I love anything that promises to make my hair super soft, so I was looking forward to trying this.
I’m not massively fussy when it comes to shampoo, but I wasn’t a big fan of the scent of this one.
However, I did notice that my hair was much more smooth and silky after I used it. I won’t be buying the shampoo for myself, but I will probably hold my breath and brave the scent until I finish the bottle because I like how it leaves my hair.
I’d like to have a look on L’Occitane’s website to look at their range of shampoos. I’m tempted to try another one to see if I can get the same results but without the smell!
We definitely already have enough coasters to fill our little flat but I do love coasters and so it’s nice to have another set to add to our collection! They are already floating around the flat on coffee tables and bedside cabinets. I like the bright colours and, as always with My Little Box, I love getting something a bit different and unexpected.
Triangle Hair Clip
This is probably one of my favourite things in the May My Little Box. I’m a big fan of a half-up, half-down everyday hairstyle so I will use this a lot!
Bra Bow Tie
This bra bow tie is designed to attach to the band of your bra at the back so that you can see it if you’re wearing an open-back dress or top. Though it’s a cute idea, I’m not sure if I will use it.
Sticking to the Friday Night theme, the May My Little Box also includes a little leaflet with cocktail recipes, the best places for a night out around the world and three music apps for parties.
I definitely like the theme and most of the things in the box, particularly the coasters and the triangle hair clip. This box is quite different from any of the others I’ve had so far, so I’d put the May My Little Box up with some of my favourite boxes.
