Sooooo… GlossyBox is usually very late in shipping me my monthly subscription. I usually have to email them and then a few days later it is waiting outside my door. To my surprise, there were two GlossyBox packages biding their time in my vestibule. At first, I was slightly confused- I just ordered a GlossyBox for $12.00 under a different email. (I admit, it was sneaky but hey! They are expensive!) Anyway, I checked and I am pretty sure these are my final two boxes from my Refinery29 deal. I didn’t realize that I would get four boxes for $60.00 Yay for surprises!
I will start with the November box. It is pretty fabulous. It came with a magazine that is far more interesting than another subscription service.
I also enjoy reading the little “love” note that comes in the box. It says, “‘Tis the Season to be Glossy!” Oh, I plan on it. On the back of my note, there is a listing of the products contained in the box. First off, the wrapping is great, It really is like opening a present. There is shredded black paper and black tissue paper held by a pink and black crown sticker. The boxes are so sturdy- I am saving them for gifts. Seriously. Moving on…
The Products: Of the five, three are full size. Unfortunately, I received one of the products before. Sigh.
1) Skin&Co Roma Truffle Serum: Hydro-Toning Day Face Cream is supposed to hinder the signs of aging. I have to give it a test run. If it makes me too greasy, my mom or aunt will end up with it.
2) NUME Style Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil will definitely get used. I use this stuff in my hair but have yet to try this brand.
3) INCOCO Nail Polish Applique in Sinderella is a pretty, shimmering red. There are 16 strips and since my nails are short, I manage to get 2-3 uses out of one package. I tend to like appliques and my favorite is by Nail Fraud. I can’t wait to try these. They are perfect for the holiday season and are “3-free” which means no DBP, toluene, or formaldehyde. (Thanks to all the nail bloggers for turning me on to this.)
4)Illamasqua Ltd Lip & Eye Medium Pencil in Rump is an icy blue. It isn’t frosty but flat. I’m not sure how I would use this- maybe as an accent, but I will give it a whirl.
5) Kryolan for GlossyBox Blusher in Glossy Rosewood is the repeat offender in the box. I’ve tested my other one and I enjoy using it. I guess this saves me some money on my next blush.
I will post about the Refinery29 box later this week and post a few reviews. Until then, my pretties.
Keep Calm and Primp On! XOXO
