Glossy Box - October

I was upstairs in my bedroom on Monday having a strop (I turn into the devil when I’m hungry), and my Mum called my phone (she was downstairs – yes, we do that!) and told me that a package had just arrived for me. I wasn’t expecting anything so I asked what it was and she said ‘it says Glossy Box on it’. Instantly my bad mood vanished and I ran downstairs to rip open my box. Easily pleased.

Anyway, Octobers Glossy Box is extra special because it is their 6 month anniversary! Because of this, the lovely girls at GB HQ decided to include an extra product in everyone’s box – such a nice idea.

Inside the box - Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Thermafoliant, Multivitamin Power Recover Masque, Renewal Lip Complex & makeup bag, a Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner, Leighton Benny Expert Nails polish in Sex Kitten and three Robert Piguet fragrances.

I squealed when I saw the Dermalogica makeup bag – I need a new one and this is the perfect size to carry around the bits I use when out and about. I’ve never used their products before, but I’ve already fallen in love with the lip balm – its absolutely lovely, makes my lips really soft and smells like a jammy wagon wheel (it took me a while to work out what it reminded me of). I will repurchasing a full size of this when I run out.

Again, I’ve never used a Leighton Denny nail varnish but I’m impressed so far – I painted this shade on top of a dark polish and only needed one coat to cover it. I personally don’t think blue polish suits me, but because its so pearly it isn’t as hard to wear as other blues.

The Stila eye liner is amazing – so pigmented, I want more shades! And finally, the fragrances aren’t to my liking, but I quite like the red one ‘calypso’.

What I think - You would not believe how happy receiving this package one a month makes me. And the more I think about it, the more I think that I could easily give up a few lunches out a month in order to afford a box. £12.95 isn’t too bad, especially when your discovering products that you fall in love with. I also still love the packaging of the box – I now need more ideas with what to do with my pink boxes!
