Shopping With Retailbox + Stila Review + Giveaway!

So this post was meant to be a review on the Stila Eye Shadow Trio that I bought on recently but since I’ve had such an amazing online shopping experience with them I thought I’d tell you about that too and just do a makeup + shopping review + giveaway! 🙂

These days online shopping is definitely the way to go! I’m an obsessed eBay shopper and on the odd occasion purchase things from local online stores as well. If you know me personally you’d know that I’ve had tons of bad experiences when it comes to online shopping from companies that I shall not mention. Anything that could go wrong, went wrong from wrong items being sent, to always missing the delivery man, to refunds taking forever, to my item not arriving on time – you name it! So when an online shopping company does well, I like to give credit where credit is rightfully due!

WWTBIMG_1392Retailbox definitely outdone themselves when they delivered my order less than 24 hours after placing an order. Usually to get that kind of speedy service you’d need to pay $$$ extra but Retailbox seems to do it just because they like to treat their customers well. I placed my order the night before, got a phone call at 9AM the next morning confirming stock availability, and that afternoon I received my package.

In case you didn’t know who Retailbox is, they’re famously known for stocking the latest GHD’s and hair care products, a lot of girls that I know of purchased their very first GHD from their website. They also have so many other hair styling tools available. I noticed that they started expanding their cosmetics range lately and decided to treat myself to a few things.

WTBIMG_1379One of the items that I got was the Stila Eye Shadow Trio in “Gold Glow”. I’ve been looking for a nice golden eyeshadow for the summer as it’s such an easy color to wear. I picked this eyeshadow because it’s a baked eyeshadow which means that you can use it wet and dry. To use it wet all what you need to do is spray a bit of setting spray onto a flat eyeshadow brush and then pick up the eyeshadow. It creates a highly pigmented eyeshadow paste which just pops with color! Not just that, but I used this eyeshadow on my eyes, on my face as a bronzer as well on my lips to achieve that radiant summer glow. Here are a few pictures from the look I created using my eyeshadow:

WTBIMG_1399WTBIMG_1446WTBIMG_1486These eyeshadows retail for R360.00 on Retailbox and are available in Gold Glow / Rose Gold Glow / Bronze Glow. I happened to accidentally buy an extra one (okay I totally did it on purpose) it’s the Bronze Glow one and I’m giving it to one lucky WTB reader. (At the time of publishing these had just sold out so you might just be in luck!)
