Hey there makeup lovers,
I hope you’re all well and having a good week so far! As usual I have been really busy between my full-time job and my blog and social media maintenance, but loving it! I have also ordered a ton of new products which will start arriving soon so very excited about testing some new makeup and skin care items and sharing my thoughts with you!
One way I find really useful and reasonably inexpensive to try new products is subscription boxes. As mentioned in my previous post, The Little Known Box, I have tested a few subscription boxes and I am constantly looking for new ones to try. Glossybox is one I have used on and off depending on the products included and my budget! I decided to subscribe to the March box after receiving an email from the company with a teaser about the contents.
As is usual with a standard Glossybox, you receive a classic pink box with an info card and the products wrapped in tissue paper and a ribbon:
Inside March’s box were 5 lovely full size items:
- Oolution Eye Love
- Sleek Makeup Eye and Cheek Palette
- This Works In Transit Camera Close-up
- GOT2B Styling Primer
- Fruu Fruitilicious Watermelon Lip Balm
As you can imagine, my favourite item was the Sleek palette! I have not used it yet but I have swatched it for your viewing pleasure!
The colours are so pretty and its a perfect handbag palette for everyday use. As is usually the case with Sleek, the eyeshadows are pigmented and reasonably smooth, there was some fallout when I swatched them but it would be manageable when using in a makeup look. I will probably be using this palette in my makeup soon so look out for the look on Instagram!
As for the other products, I have used the styling primer, the eye cream and the lip balm and I would recommend all of them. The styling primer was especially good and whilst it felt a little sticky when I put it on damp hair, once my hair dried it made it look and feel thicker and was easy to style. The eye cream was also good and the under eye area felt soft and hydrated after use but it did sting when I accidentally got it in my eye so it is definitely a cream to use sparingly and carefully! I will be testing the This Works all in one cream soon as it is meant to act as a moisturiser and primer in one which Victoria Beckham swears by so it can’t be bad!
Overall, I am really pleased with this box! It can be hit or miss with subscription boxes as sometimes the products aren’t things you would want to use but Glossybox March has provided me with some gems!
That’s it for now lovelies but I am going to try to blog more regularly so stay tuned for more reviews and beauty tips! If you have any comments, questions or suggestions for future blog topics you would like to see, leave them below for me and don’t forget to follow and subscribe!
