So it’s that time again; Glossybox time! Now the Christmas one had such a pretty box it is almost a shame to revert back to the old pink box really, but the offer of 5, yes really, 5 full size products was an offer I could not refuse.
The theme of the box was unsurprisingly ‘Fresh Starts’ as of course January is the start of a new year, so five full size products is definitely the way to celebrate. All these products are from brands that I have next to no experience with which is quite nice as I might be able to find brands that I need to try more from.
So first up is an eyeliner by MeMeMe in Clay. Now MeMeMe is a brand I have seen before as it was briefly in Superdrug but it has now disappeared. The liner itself is not a ‘chalk’ colour in my eyes as it is a dark brown but I’m not marking it down because of this. The pencil has a very soft formula and is blendable so hopefully I can use it in the upcoming weeks.
Next is the Nicka K new York Colorluxe Powder Blush. Now at first glance this product seems ingenious, the can be no product spillages and you can apply on the go. However, to me the packaging just feels slightly cheap and plasticy, but I can see that the application method will be useful for on the go.
Prize for the best brand name in the box has to go to the Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow! I am in love with anything highlighting and this is stunning. Straight out of the tube it seems really golden but once it’s blended out it looks really natural. I can’t wait to use this some more.
The best smelling product in the box is the Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalising Face Toner. This smells like fizzers or parma violets, which I can imagine will not appeal to everyone as it is so so strong. I’m yet to use this but I’m sure it will find a time to be trialed amongst my skincare.
Finally there was a Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm Superfruits. I have so many lip balms but there is always space for one more, yet this one may be the exception as I’m not sure I’m keen on the smell. We’ll see how it goes with the balm and if I start to like it I will report back to you.
That rounds up what I received, the boxes total value was just over £32 which isn’t bad, but you might expect more value from a box of five full sized products. I will stay subscribed for February’s box as the design will no doubt be cute as it’s the month of Valentines. On the subject of Valentines if there are any posts you’d like to see please let me know!
