After a week of running to the mail box everytime a car that could have been the mail man drove by, my November Glossybox finaly arrived. It was waiting for me when I got home from a crazy day at work, so it was perfect timing! And YES I was happy with the contant this time too!
Make Up Store Lipgloss Wand
Glossybox and Make Up Store is still giving away a full size product every month. I got the lipgloss in colour 381 Dahlia. It’s a nice pink shade with loads of beautiful shimmer. I’ve been really happ with the eye products, so I’m excited to try this one as well.
Model Co More Brows, Eyebrow Thickening gel
A brow gel is actually something I’ve been planing to buy, but always find other things that seems more fun at the moment. I think I will re-think that thought from now on. I gave it a try right away, and I really liked the result. I got the colour medium/dark and thought it would be too dark for me, but with a light hand it works perfect.
Hot Make Up Glitter Glam
This is a really glittery gel, that works just as good on the eyes as on the nails if you secure it with a top coat polish. The colour isn’t something I would pick myself, but I could see some cool Christmas inspired make up with this one. Look forward to give it a try.
Sumita Beauty Eye Shadow Pencil
A shimmery eyeliner in the colour Champagne. I think it’s a little dark for it’s name, but it does look fantastic! Neutral colours can never go wrong. It’s very nice and creamy and gives lovely pigment even with a light hand, which I really appreciate working on the eyes. This one has lots of potential to be a favorite!
L’occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
I’ve read lots of great reviews about products from L’occitane, but never tried them myself. I was actually planning to buy something at Woodbury in New York, but there was so much to chose from and I didn’t know where to start looking, so I endend up buying nothing. Now they have a new chance to convince me!
The hand cream is with shea butter, honey and almonds. That does sound like something for me!
That’s it for tonight. More New York posts are still to come, but when the box arrived today it jumped to the first place in the line.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think about them? Let me know in the comments below.
Yesterday the Glossybox of the moth arrived. It’s like Christmas every time. The theme of this box is Eyes. I loved the theme from the moment I heard about it. Eyes are my favorite part to focus on when I do my makeup. This is what I got in the box this month.
Garnier – The Miracle Cream
A face cream with an inovative color technology that’s supposed to fit all skin tones. It will hide fine lines and even the skintone.
Absolute New York – Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer
This is perfect for me! I’ve been in the need to buy a primer for a while, but I tend to forget about it everytime I go shopping. Thank you Glossybox for taking care of this task for me.
Monu – Warming ginger oil
A massage oil to build up the skins elasticity and keep it soft and smooth. Hope M will help me use this one after a long day at work!
Benefit Cosmetics – It’s Potent! Eye Cream
I’m excited to try another product from benefit. I know it’s a quite hyped brand, but last time I got to try a product from them I wasn’t really convinced. Hope this one gives them a jump up for me. It’s supposed to tone out darkness under the eyes, even fine lines and moisturise the eye area. Convince me you’re great, Benefit!
Make Up Store – Eyedust
I’ve always wanted to try products from Make Up Store, but it has been too hard for me to chose colours, and to expencive to buy plenty. In my box this month I got an eyedust in the colour Bamboo. It’s a very lovely green shade, and I already know this will be a big time favorite this fall. It’s very well pigmented and shimmery. Don’t be surprised if a make up using this one turns up on the blog, sooner rather than later.
The Body Shop – Drops of Youth Eye Concentrate
Make Up Store also offers make up consulting in one of their stores for me and a friend. Will see if I can find an opening for me and my sister to go to this one. Would be fun to see if they have something to say that I haven’t thought about.
Over all I’m very happy whit the box this month. Definitely one of my favorites so far.
Stay tuned, a few more posts about our trip to Chicago will be posted in the next few days.
I got a new Glossybox the other day, and I must say I was really happy with the content this time. Since they were celebrating their birthday it was a more generous box than usual, and I’m not complaining.
Jelly Pong Pong Mascara – For me this is completely new. I’ve never heard about the brand before, so I’m excited to try. It’s a bit more expensive than mascaras I usually buy myself so I hope it’s good for that as well!
Model Co Bronzing Powder – Also a brand I haven’t tried before. Since I do have a few bronzing powders before I love the small package since it’s a perfect size for the handbag.
Anatomicals Face Mask – Deep cleansing and matting effect. Got one from the same brand in another box and was happy whit that. Hopefully this one will be as good.
The Body Shop Body Butter “Wild Argan Oil” – I LOVE body butters from The Body Shop and have several of them at home. This new one really smells like something I would buy myself. I like that it’s not as fruity as most of the ones I have at home. This one feels more like fall.
Makiash Lipcolour Pen – A new Swedish brand! And I must say LOVE LOVE LOVE. The colour is lovely, high pigmented and shiny. (Also like the fact that the name of my town is on the pen) I will use this one a lot this fall, and I will most defiantly check out their website for more products.
Thierry Mugler EdT “Angel” – I like bonuses, and I like the opportunity to try a perfume a few times before I buy it. This one is described to smell like chocolate, vanilla, mandarin and honey. I must honestly say that if I just smelled this by the bottle in a store I would put it back and walk away quickly. It didn’t speak to me at all. But I had already sprayed the test to my hand, and it is starting to grow on me. I will give that little test bottle a real try, with the right clothes and the right mood. Not to PJ’s and cozy alone time by the laptop.
Fleur de Santé Precious Skin Boost Anti-Aging Day Cream – I don’t think that the little test bag in this box will make any miracles, so I will probably not buy the whole thing from this. But the description says it contains rose quartz, and that sounds quite cool so I might at least read a bit more about it in the magazine.
That was all for today! See you again soon!
I made it! I managed to find some internet connection in the woods. I have the weekend off and decided to join my parents and go to our summer cabin. It’s so lovely to be here! Hopefully the weather is okay tomorrow so I can take some nice pictures. Would love to show my favorite place on earth!
I got an offer to try Glossybox to a reduced price, and I just had to jump on. I love surprises and I love trying new things, so it just seemed like the perfect thing for me. Today the first box showed up at my door, and it was a pleasant surprise! I will do decent reviews on the products later on, when I’ve tried them properly, so for now I’ll just let you know what was inside the box.
Models own Nail polish for a nail polish freak. Couldn’t be better. Hard to see the nice sparkles on this pictures. (Just noticed, it’s close to 1 A.M. It will do for now). Keep an eye out for the full review.
I think I got lucky this time. What do you think? Have you tried any of the products?
