It’s that time of the month again, where the beauty boxes are landing on doormats and causing sighs and gasps of disappointment and excitement! This time it’s a special design Glossybox Feb 2014 * and whilst pretty in your face, it’s pretty cute – and you can’t say it isn’t ideal for a beauty lover in Valentine’s month – covered in red and pink kisses. It’s a cute box, but it’s not the box that counts (it is a little bit) but the contents! So what can be found in my Glossybox this month…?!
So in the box, the first thing I spotted was the Lindor chocolate treat – always welcome. I like a beauty box with added snacks (one of my all time favourites was a beauty box with Popchips in there). Then there’s a lovely little rose-nude Ciate shade called ‘Pocket Money’. I do like the Ciate bottle and they have some nice shades in the range so that’s a welcome addition. Then my top pick of the box for Feb – the Maybelline Big Eyes mascara. With a double ended wand – for the top and bottom lashes in one. Makes me wonder why more brands don’t do this as standard, seems to make sense to have two sized brushes for big and little lashes. And one mascara rather than two is convenient – so I like this very much!
Then there’s the NV Chunky Crayon in a pretty lavender shade – it’s very pretty and I’m determined to get more into colour over the next month or so. Especially with my eyes (I’m in a taupe rut) so wanted to throw a touch of lilac and perhaps some purple in there to mix things up. Guess this is a good place to start!
Lastly there’s the sachets of shampoo/conditioner/mask – which are ok, but can’t help feel they’re a little bit ‘meh’. Even the same size samples, but in little bottles would feel better. But the sachets just don’t feel that exciting. Lastly there’s the Nougat London Sparkling Body Shimmer in the lilac shade ‘Cherry Blossom’ – which is quite sweet, but as someone who doesn’t want to be covered in shimmer – not really for me to be honest!
Overall, a few bits I’m excited about and a few bits that I’m not…. what did you get in your Glossybox this month? Are you signed up – what are you thinking about beauty boxes in general at the moment?! Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
