For those of you who don’t know, Glossybox is a company that sends out a box filled with four or five cosmetics every month. You can subscribe for however long you want, fill in some details about what products you’d be interested in and then wait in anticipation for each box to arrive. I had a 6 month subscription in 2013, and now I’ve subscribed for another 6 months!
If you’re a girl who loves to shop all things beauty, you’d 100% love this.
This month, in honour of Valentine’s Day, it’s a cute love box. I’ll show you the products I got and some of my first impressions.
1) Wilkinson Sword – Hydro silk
I’ve always been a loyal Venus customer, so I’m intrigued to see what Wilkinson have to offer. This blade comes with a water activated bar of Moisturising Serum infused with marine extracts and shea butter.
2) Marsk – Mineral Eyeshadow
Admittedly, I’ve never heard of this brand before. This is a 100% natural powder-based eye shadow. They sent me a grey colour (called Fifty Shades), which is a shame because I never wear grey/black shadows on my eyes. I might try and use it as eye-liner effect but overall I’m not that keen.
3) Royal Apothic – Tinties
I love lip products! The packaging of this is super cute – I can’t wait to put it on my dressing table. Again, the colour isn’t what I’d usually go for BUT I love the texture of this. It’s so soft and smells gorgeous. I think I could definitely use it and then apply some lipgloss over it to make it more pinky/neutral.
4) So Susan – Rose Quartet Lip&Cheek Palette
On first impression, the packaging of this is a bit disappointing. It feels cheap. I haven’t actually tried the product itself though, so I can’t say whether that itself is good or not. I do like the look of the two colours on the right.
5) got2be – All star 10 in 1 styling
This product claims to do a lot! I’m so excited to give it ago and I’m crossing my fingers it isn’t a let down. I’m particularly interested to see how it deals with my fine, difficult to manage hair.
I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on how each product goes! Happy Glossybox Day to you all, mwah xoxo
