Although I received my Feb Glossybox a few weeks ago I’m only just getting around to reviewing it. Maybe the amount of time it’s taken me to have a little play with it’s contents is a sign of how underwhelmed I am by it. That being said I’m not as disappointed with the last box as I have been previously.
Nougat London Sparkling Body Shimmer – Normally £14 for 250ml, I received 100ml in my box. I must admit that this has a lovely fresh cherry(ish) scent but it isn’t original, sparkling or moisturising enough to tempt me to re-purchase or even re-use!
Toni & Guy Hair Stick it Up Gum – £7.20 for 90ml, I received a full size product. In all honesty I do not see what this product does except make your hair greasy. I tried to recreate a large quiff with this product and it just flopped straight back down. Maybe it’s better suited to short hair?
Eldore Eyelashes – £3.90, these lovely wispy, fluttery lashes caught my eye (no pun intended) the minute I spied them. I always love trying new lashes, good job on including then GB!
Ciaté London Paint Pot in Red Hot Chilli – £9 for 13.5ml, full size product received. I’m a huge fan of Ciaté products and love this gorgeous red, buuuut…they gave me a red polish two boxes ago…why give me another one? I would have preferred the peeps over at Glossy to have had a quick look at what they have already sent me and give me some variety. Who needs two red nail polishes after holiday season has finished and metallics are in?
Maybelline New York Colour Sensational Stripped Nudes Lipstick in NAKED BROWN – £6.99, full sized product received. Now this I love! Don’t be deceived by the name, this product is far from a NAKED or NUDE colour, it’s actually very dark and vampish. I’ve been looking for the perfect shade to re-create a makeup look modelled by Khloe Kardashian at Elton John’s Oscars party and this is the perfect shade. Combine this lippy with the Eldore lashes and I’m good to go!
There was also a lovely Lindt treat bar that I wolfed down straight away, hence why it’s not in the pictures. All in all the February box was ok, not a total fail but not amazing either. Glossybox have avoided my cancellation email for now…I hope next months box is a good one!
PEACE & LOVE
