So I just received my first Glossy Box- and I’m a little confused, because I signed up at the end of August- assuming I would get September. So I’m not sure if Glossy Box ships very late, or if I just got it late because of the time I signed up.
But here it is, and man, is she beautiful! (yes, she’s a she, it’s a make-up subscription box, after all).
Glossy box is a monthly subscription box that has deluxe and full-size products.
The Cost: $21 a month (you can save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription)
Promo code: there’s no promo code on this one, but if you go through Ebates, you can save $2.75, and get a free $10 Target gift card, making your first month close to free. Click here to go to Ebates first, then sign up and search Glossybox! And even if makeup isn’t your thing, or you’re a dude, check out Ebates for a second anyway! You get paid extra to buy the things you already buy on the internet!
This month’s Last months? theme was “Bohemian summer” Here’s what’s in the box:
The first item is “Jelly Pong Pong” lip blush. ($18)
When I saw this, all I could think of was:
Bright pink lip stain might be Nicki’s thing, but it is soooooo not my thing. I gave it a try anyway, and with a bit of blotting, its not too bad. I wish I received the red stain that some people did, but the pink is not horrible. I tried to take a pic, but let’s just say, I’m not a beauty blogger. Anyone want to model lip stain?
The next item was a Model Co. eyeshadow Duo in Bronzed Goddess ($25.00)
I love the neutral colors, but it came to me a little broken up. I’m still deciding if I should contact Glossybox to get a replacement, since it made a small mess all over the inside of the box. What do you guys think?
It’s not too bad, but the worse thing ever to me is broken powder. Because one day when you’re least expecting it, the whole thing explodes and makes a mess everywhere!
Here’s what the colors look like:
Next in the box was Anatomicals “Spray Misty for Me” facial spray. ($9)
I’m a little confused about facial spray. I just don’t get it. Does anyone use facial spray? Does it work well for you?
Also, it had a smell that I was just not expecting. Not a bad smell, just an unexpected one. I’ll probably end up throwing this in the beach-bag. We live right by a lake and go all the time, so maybe I can use this for when we go.
Next in the box was Novex Brazilian Keratin Hair Care Treatment ($4.99)
I loved this! I used it in the shower yesterday, left it on for 3 minutes, and my hair still feels amazing!
The last Full-sized item was Sue Devitt Triple C-Weed Pressed Powder ($28.00)
I wish this powder was just one shade darker, but It will work just fine in the winter. This powder is supposed to even out skin tone, set makeup and control shine. I tried it on in the house, and it’s a really nice powder, I just can’t wait to wear it in the winter!
Finally, there was a little surprise in the bottom of the box:
A Guess makeup bag and Guess coupon! The coupon expired the day after I got the box, which is kind of a bummer, but I can’t remember the last time I was in Guess. But man, does this little makeup bag take me back to the early 2000’s. I saved for my Guess jean jacket for like a month!
My Thoughts: This box had a value of nearly $70 – which is awesome! And I love that every item was full-sized with lots of makeup products, instead of just smaller samples like a lot of other makeup subscription boxes send. And the presentation and packaging is the best I have seen (minus the broken eyeshadow) I’m impressed so far- but what do you guys think of the box?
