Hello my lovelies! It's been a busy and exciting time for me the last couple weeks and there's still more to come, so I look forward to sharing all of that with you over the coming days/weeks. I've reached a milestone on my twitter page last week (1000 followers) so I thought I'd have a small giveaway, sponsored by Mont Bleu a Czech brand specialising in crystal glass nail files.
They kindly approached me to review their products and offer my readers a giveaway of a crystallised nail file too!
I was sent a crystallised nail file and compact mirror, both of which were cleverly picked for a lover of purple:
For those of you who don't know, I'm a lover of all things sparkly, a typical girly girl, so when I first received these products my eyes approved of the sparkle-factor.
As you can see, the products are very glitzy and glamourous, and sparkle beautifully both with and without flash. I did not expect the crystals to be that clear and pretty to be honest!
Mont Bleu crystallised nail file
This is my favourite of the two items, for various reasons; it's in the girly colours I love (pink & purple), it sparkles beautifully, has an ombre effect (which I'm loving on anything right now!) as well as being more pleasant to use than metal files or emery boards.
|with flash - look at the sparkle!|
I've decided to give a new marking system in reviews too, the "frooti-factor" which I will scale from 0 to 5.
For the Mont Bleu nail file I have to say it ticks all the right boxes and would get at least a 4.5:
Mont Bleu crystallised compact
The compact sent was a heavy duty plastic mirrored finish and had cutely placed crystals on it in a similar design as the nail file (Comet design).
This one is called Purple Comet (€12/around £9.98) which came in a lovely presentable leatherette gift box; other metal and plastic compacts start from €3.99/around £3.32).
One side is magnified whilst the other is a normal/unmagnified mirror. My only qualm with this type of mirror is getting fingerprints all over the front, and that the stones would fall off.
However, I've been carrying both products in my handbag for the last week to test it and not one has fallen off yet.. Impressive seeing as my handbag goes through a lot of abuse!
So my overall rating for the mirror - (4):
I reckon these products would make great gifts for other girly girls out there like me (of all ages), as the sparkle on these products are amazing as well as the choice of other products that can be gifted.
