I think the relationship between myself and my glossybox has been good while it lasted. This isn’t my last box but next month will be after using my glossydots. Which is a shame because the odd product I absolutely love but I have all my glossybox samples sat in a box either because they don’t fit my skin type or I simply haven’t enjoyed the product. It’s a shame but I love my Birchbox a lot more.
Well onto January’s box. I was disappointed not going to lie, every box isn’t going to suit each individual. I have persevered with trying out the products as I wanted to give my honest review but even still i’m not overwhelmed. In this months glossybox I received:
• MeMeMe Eye Line Pencil in Clay [full size] £4 – This is my favourite product in the box, I have such high respect for the MeMeMe brand and if I had the chance to work with them I would jump at the chance! I have a large collection of MeMeMe Cosmetics and I have never tried the eye pencils until I received this box. I love the shade I received to me it would be a great colour to line the top of my lashes as I’m not into black eyeliner it’s a very nice brown shade and the formula of the pencil is gorgeous it glides on with ease. It’s not scratchy and it doesn’t budge either giving a long lasting wear.
• Nicka K New York Colorluxe Powder Blush [full size] €8.95 – This intrigued me, I tried it first on my hand to see how it worked and was pleasantly surprised not a lot of product come away which was great as it was very pigmented. Trying it on my face however I had bright pink cheeks, it looked like I had over used on the blush but I had simply dabbed it lightly. Not a fan I have to say but it’s a very good idea!
•Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow [full size] £10 – this is a brand I had heard of before but I had never had the chance to try any of their products, naturally I was excited about this product. It’s a brightening gel so pretty much a highlighter. It’s also oil free which I love as I have blemish prone skin! It did take me a while to get the hang of using this but now I find it a lot easier which is great as I love this product, it gives the cheeks a great shimmer but it’s not glittery!
• Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalizing Face Toner [full size] €10.70 – I can’t fully judge this in a week but I have no idea what this is supposed to do for my skin. I love that it has camomile and aloe vera in which help calm and rehydrate skin, but I haven’t found it made any change to my skin as yet..
• Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm Superfruits [full size] €5 – This is your standard lip balm. It’s 100% natural formula packed full of oils from the word’s most anti-oxidant rich fruits. It’s very sweet smelling and does leave the lips feeling nourished.
In a nutshell this box isn’t the best but isn’t the worst! I have absolutely loved some products and others I have a neutral opinion about and I definitely won’t be going near the blush again. You get good glossybox’s and you get bad ones that’s life.
