Degustabox . Here's what I though of the contents and there is also a new,exciting thing happening with the August box!
I'am no stranger to Caribbean Twist so I was happy to see it in my box. It's a delicious Strawberry Daiquiri cocktail which always reminds me of summer!
Who doesn't love croissants for breakfast? These all butter Pains au laits and croissants warmed in the oven taste amazing with a cup of tea and your favourite filling.
I love snacking on tortilla chips so these went quite quickly! They are lightly salted and have a slight toasted taste. I love the packaging of these to, would definitely buy these.
Berry White Organic Drink with Peach and Goji Berry
I'm trying to make an effort to drink less fizzy,sugary drinks. These organic juices from Berry white are the perfect alternative! This tastes refreshing and light plus it contains no added sugar or artificial preservatives. Also, 10% of their profits go to charity which is nice to know.
Schwartz Flavour Shots
Probably my favourite item from this months box because I enjoyed using them! Flavour Shots are recipe bases containing a blend of herbs,spices and seasoning infused in sunflower oil. You simply add a spoonful to your pan and add your meat/veg. I tried the Spanish Smoked Paprika Chicken shot which was so easy to use and tasted heavenly.
Cawston Press Kid's Blend Apple & Pear
A juice specially blended for children as it is shaken up with 40% water for a light juice drink. It contains no added sugar or anything artificial. This seems like a great lunch box option for kids!
Dr.Oetker Edible Wafer Cases
WOW. That was my reaction when I saw these. Edible cupcake cases, why did no one think of this sooner? I can't wait to get using these so I can eat the whole cupcake!
Lindt Chocolate Tin
This cute heart shaped tin contains 10 delicious milk chocolate hearts. I've resisted the urge to demolish these as I think it would make the perfect chocolate gift for someone.
Fever Tree Tonic Water and Ginger Beer
Tonic Water and Ginger Beer are two drinks I've never tried out before. These are the non-alcoholic option which actually go great mixed with alcohol!
As well as all that, in this month's box I received a Degustabox Fridge Coupon which allows you to redeem a chilled item at a supermarket. I got a full value coupon for a Moma Muesli multipack. These sounds delicious and i'll definitely be redeeming my voucher next time I'm in Waitrose or Sainsbury's.

Voted as the best detangling brush in the US, the Wet Brush is hailed as a 'must use' by journalists and stylists. On first impressions it looks like an ordinary hairbrush but it's designed specially to use on wet hair which is prone to breakage. The reason why this brush is unique to others on the market is down to it's bristles. The IntelliFlex bristles are developed to be ultra thin and flexible and instantly bounce back to its original form. I've been using this after a shower when my hair is particularly tangled. It's nice to have a hairbrush with a handle after using my Tangle Teezer for so long. The gentle bristles help to massage my scalp whilst gliding through my tangles easily. I find this makes brushing wet hair so much easier and it's reassuring to know that its not causing any further damage. Possibly a new favourite hairbrush....sorry Tangle Teezer.
The Wet Brush* is £11.99 available from Sally's and Cult Beauty.

Whenever I wear the Eyeko Black Magic mascara someone will ask me if I'm wearing false eyelashes. It's one of my favourite mascara's and just works really well for me. I love the bristle brush and jet black formula.
The Maybelline Superstay 24 Hour lipsticks don't get enough mention online. If you're after a long lasting lipstick I highly recommend these. People seem impressed when my lipstick is still in place after eating/drinking all evening. My favourite shade is On and On Pink which looks amazing if you have blue eyes.
I wear red lipstick on quite a regular basis but the one which get's asked about the most is a lip liner from No7. The shade 'Blush' is quite a natural looking red and very wearable. I love how creamy the formula is and that it doesn't bleed. I like to wear this alone as a lipstick.
A product that only receives compliments in photographs is still a good product. The Revlon Photo Ready Primer makes my skin look a lot better in photos. It blurs any imperfections and creates a flawless finish.
What beauty products do you get most compliments on?

(l-r Collection Lip Butter in Perfect Plum, Revlon Ultimate Suede in Backstage, Rimmel Apocalips in Eclipse, Rimmel 107, Barry M Loud Mouth in Diva)
As much as I'm sad to wave goodbye to Summer I can't wait for the season of cosy jumpers, dark lips and pumpkin spiced lattes. I love highstreet makeup and I've managed to narrow down my favourite plum, berry and burgundy shades for your lipstick-viewing pleasure.
How could I write a post on autumn lipsticks without mentioning the legend that is Rimmel 107? I was never brave enough to rock a darker lip until I discovered this little beauty. This matte lipstick + dewy skin = my winter face. If you're knew to darker lipstick try a lip crayon. They are so easy to use and impossible to mess up. I like the Collection Lip Butters as they're moisturising and glide on effortlessly. If you have an A* in vampy lipstick go full on with a lip lacquer for maximum impact. Rimmel have just launched a Matte version of Apocalips and Barry M recently bought out Loud Mouth Lip Colours which promise a sticky-free shine. Another lipstick offering comes from Revlon. The ColourStay Ulitmate Suede collection offers long lasting colour which fades down after a few hours to leave a stain which looks like you've just ate an entire blackberry pie.
What will you be rocking on your lips this A/W?
