Hello lovelies, today I’ll be unboxing my August Glossy Box. This was a special one for Glossybox as it was their birthday edition! So it came with a little package of 3 extra goodies if you used the code they sent through.
I actually cancelled my Glossybox for a few months because I felt like it wasn’t really giving me anything I didn’t already use or anything I was particularly interested in. It rarely included makeup and if it did, the colour usually wasn’t right for me or the quality was a bit poor. Similarly with the skincare included, it wasn’t really giving me anything special and a lot of it was tailored towards anti aging which is nice, but not really something I’m all that concerned with (YET!)
But when I saw that they were doing a special box for their birthday edition, I thought hey, why not give them another shot, besides its nice getting a few surprises each month.
So first off, we have MUA Cosmetics Heaven & Earth palette, which includes 12 shades of shimmer eyeshadows. A range of sparkly bronze and golden shades.
This reminds me a little of the Urban Decay Naked3 palette with its rosy bronze tones. This is a great every day palette with extremely wearable neutral shades, with a pop of shimmer for some extra glamour. These retail for £4 each which is a bargain if you ask me!
Next there was a Bellá Pierre Cosmetics lipstick in the shade Burlesque. I LOVE this shade. It’s a beautiful berry pink which will complement a variety of different looks. I’ve used their lipsticks before and the formula is lovely and creamy so I’m sure I’ll get lots of use out of this. All of their mineral makeup is extremely high quality and it’s nice to recieve a lipstick worth £20 in the box!
There were a couple of skincare items in this box. A Spa to you Deep pore cleansing facial brush and a Mudmasky facial detox recovery mask. I have been really into my masks lately and can’t wait to give this one a go. Especially being that a full size of this sells for £59! (You can get 20% off with code glossy20uk) so I have high hopes for it. On the Mudmasky website, it claims to Refine Pores and Brighten, while keeping your skin Hydrated and Smooth. All good things! I shall report back once trying it out.
As for the Spa to you Deep pore cleansing Facial brush, I’ve wanted to try a facial brush for a while now, so it’ll be interesting to see if this makes any difference to my complexion. This retails for £6.99 on their website.
Next up is the SASS Perfect Skin concentrate serum which is great if you’re prone to ingrown hairs after shaving/waxing. I’ve used this before and I’m a big fan of SASS skincare products, so I was happy to get a bottle of this included. A full sized bottle of this is £12.00 and you can get it from Boots.
Neeeext we have this funky little pair of tweezers from Browtician. Can you ever have too many pairs of tweezers? Really? I don’t think you can. So these are a welcome addition to my little tool collection. Plus the design is super cute. They recently brought out a collection of 5 different designs exclusive to Superdrug. I got the Love skull design and they retail for £7.99 each.
Next is the Cowshed Wild cow Invigorating Body Lotion. Cowshed have a MASSIVE variety of body care and skincare products, each more delicious than the last. This smells wonderful as does everything else I’ve tried from Cowshed, though a little on the pricey side, a full sized bottle of lotion retails for £20.00 each. But a little goes a very long way.
As a last little bonus treat, there was a little canvas makeup bag with the Glossybox initials on the front, perfect for travelling and perfect for keeping all this month’s Glossy treats together.
Let me know what subscription boxes you’re loving at the moment. I’d love to try something new.
