A new month means a new Glossybox delivery. I’m kinda getting less excited about them arriving now but I’ve been with them nearly 3 years now so maybe I need to try something new. Got any suggestions for us?
As usual, the direct debit was paid on the 1st of the month with shipping starting on the 4/5th. Shipping dates are very hit or miss but I’ve been luckier these past two months. My box was dispatched on the 4th and arrived on the 6th.
This month we have the pretty pleasures edit which I think is inspired by the pastel colours of spring. *Confused face bro. Not a good basis for picking products-their pastel packaging. Anyhoo, this box contains a definite 4 full size products, 5 depending what you get for the final product. That ones a lucky dip item from Nyx and maybe full size or a deluxe mini depending on the product.
The first item for me try was the Nails Inc Nail Polish in the shade Palace Gardens. This retails for £11 and is a pale grey colour. I wasn’t sure about the colour at first but it’s growing on me. This brand of nail polish is easy to apply and always has good pigment. My only issue with them is that they chip way too easily.
The second product in this box was the Beautaniq Beauty Nourishing Mascara. This volumising mascara actually does what it says on the tube….it adds volume and length to your lashes without clumping them together. The wand is small enough to get all those lashes on the inner corner too which is usually impossible for me. This retails for £15.50.
The third item for me to try was the Lucky Dip item from Nyx. I got lucky with the full size Suede Matte Lipstick in the shade Clinger. This retails for £8 and is a gorgeous hot pink. Despite being a bullet lipstick it has a matte finish and is non greasy when wearing. It does tranfer a little but I found it a lot less drying to the lips compared with liquid lippies.
The penultimate product was the So Eco Complexion Sponge. I mean you can never have enough sponges can you. This one is quite soft and expands to a good size. I didn’t notice it absorbing too much of my liquid products which is always a bonus and left me with an smooth, even finish to my skin. This retails for £6.
The final item in this months box was the Figs and Rouge Satin Soft Blurring Primer and Finishing Fix (wow, marketing had a ball naming this didn’t they). This retails for £38 and doesn’t contain any silicone (yay). I was pleasantly surprised by this as it was unfragranced and smoothed my skin texture. My makeup sat well over the top of it and didn’t move throughout the day. It also took longer for my base to break down in problematic areas.
Overall, I am very happy with this month’s box despite feeling a little meh when I saw the contents. I ended up liking everything here but I am building a collection of skin care and lipsticks from these boxes and I would like a better variety. I particularly love the mascara and primer as both do what they say on the box. The lipstick was also surprisingly good for me but I’m not sure I like the idea of a lucky dip item in the boxes.
