Boudoir Prive

Is just another service like its counterpart Glossybox and aims to provide customers interested in trying out new cosmetic products with 5 samples every month for £10.

In my box however, I received 6 samples. None of them are full sized products in my opinion but they are decent sized samples, just what you'd receive in departmental stores when you make a purchase of a certain amount.

A clever mix of cosmetics, skin care, body care and haircare is included to try out, making sure there's something for everyone. I am really excited about the Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment, Zoya Nail Polish and Cargo Boogie Nights Eye Liner.

The Zoya Polish is from its recent Autumn Collection and is gorgeous deep purple with gold reflects. I have been lusting over a similar colour from ages and was over the moon to find this in the box. It looks stunning and is nothing like what I already own.

Cargo Boogies Nights Liner is a stunning black with silver shimmer, just about perfect for a winged out liner, simple smoky eye or the coming party season. It comes in a variety of shades and I am looking forward to trying out more sometime soon.

In my opinion, this is different from Glossybox in the sense that the brands incorporated by Bourdoir Prive in its box are more sophisticated and actually high-end as compared to Glossybox which also included Bastiste once!

That's the whole point really, that if you're someone who likes to get their hands on a variety of products to play with but does not have the time to go hunting for samples, this would be a perfect tailor made solution for you.

I don't feel it would be financially burdensome for anyone who's working and not on a strict budget. It's all a matter of choice at the end of the day and how much you're willing to spare to experiment with new brands.

Personally speaking, I love the concept being a beauty blogger, as the excitement of trying out new brands and products is unparalleled.
