Review: Mont Bleu Design Glassware Beauty Accessories

Swarovski nail file, pink Swarovski, pretty, cute

How pretty are these beauty accessories?!

Mont Bleu offer a range of decorated beauty accessories that you can mix and match to your liking. I was a little concerned that they may not be very effective, as sometimes products can make up for in style what they lack in functionality, but I'm pleased to say I was wrong.

Swarovski nail file, pink Swarovski, pretty, cute

The glass nail files are really effective at filing my nails and leaving me with a smooth, clean edge. I think glass files can be a hit or miss, but these are definitely a hit. I think these are the prettiest in the set. Mont Bleu offer these in so many different styles and colours that there really is something for everyone!

Mont Bleu says these "glass nail files are made from high quality tempered Czech glass decorated with Swarovski crystals".

They come in full size and smaller, travel size minis. My only complaint is that the cover they come in won't protect them much from breaking, I'm not sure how well these files would handle being in a busy handbag everyday. The full-size one here is £8.75 and the mini available for £6.76 but you can also find some sets for a bit cheaper.

Swarovski earrings, pink Swarovski, pretty, cute

I'm not quite sure what colour I'd say these earrings are, they shimmer in shades of pink, purple and silver, very pretty! So far I've found them to be very comfortable to wear. They come in at £6.76 and are made of hypo allergic metal along with SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS.

Swarovski mirror, blue Swarovski, beautiful, compact mirror

I loved the colour combination on this compact mirror. There's a mix of plain coloured crystals and then some beautiful iridescent ones. Very eye-catching! I also liked that the outside was mirrored, so if you're really in a rush you don't even need to open this compact mirror! It comes with two good sized mirrors inside and costs £10.14 - again there are plenty of different patterns and colours.

Swarovski tweezers, pink Swarovski, eyebrow tweezers

I've been faithful to my current fine-pointed tweezers for years, so I wasn't sure how well I'd get on with a wider end but was pleasantly surprised. I found this gripped on to hairs very well and the larger, curved handle made it easier to hold. This one costs £11.83 but I'm also loving the look of these rubber button tweezers! I've never seen anything like that before!

I liked that these products all came with their own case (with the exception of the earrings). It certainly meant that they all arrived in good condition and also add an extra touch if you happen to be giving any of these as a gift. However, the box for the mirror would be far too clunky to keep it in and I doubt the nail file cases would prevent any breakages, but should protect it from rubbing up against other products at least.
