Good evening friends,
Its been far to long!
As you can see from the title, this month I’ll be reviewing the March Glossybox, ‘All eyes on me’ edition.
(Find a picture of me at the bottom of the page wearing the products)
Black magic mascara
Deluxe mini 4ml RRP £10 (Full size £19)
I’m not a massive fan of mascara in beauty boxes as they’re just a bit boring, but, you always need one spare I guess.
This mascara is good, non flaking with a decent curved brush, but you’re not able to apply much at a time. Third coat and I was happy with the result, but it’s a bit more effort than I’d like to make with my mascara, I’d prefer a bushier brush and one swift flick.
Stamp and drag liner duo
Firstly the name made me laugh, its an odd one, and secondly, it was a bit*h to get out of the box
I was intrigued as I havent used one of these ‘stamp’ eye liners before.
I see the appeal of the stamp but wasnt overly keen. It’s very hard, especially to press on a sensative part of your fact, and I think the transfer would of been better if it was softer and could adapt to your eye shape.
Any who, it’s a good idea, but not quite sharp enough wing, but the defined pen helped to sort it out.
This eyeline is long wearing which is amazing, but keep that in mind if you make a mistake with your liner as it’s a tough one to get off!
Long Lasting Lipstick in the shade Flawless
This shade of lipsticks is definalty in my top 3, so I was happy to see such a gorgeous colour.
Blush pink is one of my favourites and this one didnt fail to impress. With a long lasting wear, soft and creamy application I’d definitely buy this lipstick again.
Highlighter Palette in shade Copperplate RRP £9.99
This highlighting pallette is full of versatile, subtle warm and light golden shades. It’s a little more on the modest side for highlighters which is what I prefer. The packaging is beautiful and it also comes with a handy brush (hygienic, dont like the thought of brushes floating around a make up bag) and a mirror enclosed.
I used shades 3 and 4 on my cheekbones, nose and eyes for a flowy, sunrises look.
Daily Cleansing Cream
Look at the size of that!
I have awful eczema on my body, and am always up for trying a new product
It does have that e45 scent, and you have to rub it in quite well otherwise you’ll have white patches, which isn’t really something youd use in the day time, but maybe when you’re at home you can leave it in to soak.
I have put it on one of my arms for the afternoon to see how it feels later
Update. I wanted to scratch my skin off.
This ones probably a no go for me which is a shame, but I’m glad I had the chance to try a new cream as sensative moisturizer can be so expensive.
Over all I am extremly happy with this months box, Glossybox are finally heading in the right direction
Do you recieve any monthly subscription boxes? And if so, would you recommend them?
