Glossybox June 2020

Good evening friends,

I’ve had this sat in my drafts for a while, and keep on forgetting to actually finish this post.

My bad.

June’s Glossybox had me excited, this happens few and far between as I’ve found Glossybox has lost its charm, and am only signed up for one more box of my year sentance/subscription.

Any who, June’s theme was set around world of beauty.

ModelCo Liquid Metal Eyeshadow Shade Champagne RRP £15

We recieved a similar liquid shadow last December, but this liquid shadow is a staple for every make up bag.

A quick and easy glamorous look with one swoop. With buildable layering, perfect for a top up when you’re on the go.

Huda beauty Life Liner – Very Vanta RRP £18

If you know me, or actually, if you’ve ever seen a handful of pictures of me, you’ll know I love eyeliner. A smokey smudg of soft liner or a cat eye, it’s been my go to for years.

A dual eyeline is a must have, but funnily enough I’ve never managed to find one that is just right.

Both products applied exactly as intended and were long lasting.

This all sounds great doesn’t it?

Before I explain, I’ll introduce the next product.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company – Make up Removing Cloths (pack of 2) RRP £7.99

First things first. Animal print again? Why Glossybox?

Make up Removing cloths that will wipe away all traces without any soap,oils, remover? No way.

Of course I was sceptical but intrigued, but these bad boy’s proved me wrong! Running the cloth under warm water, my foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick and even mascara wiped off without having to scrub my skin too hard, or leaving me with panda eye.

The Huda liquid liner on the other hand. Well, she had other ideas.

In the above photo, all other make up and mascara had been removed but the liquid liner would not budge, not a smudge.

I scrubbed my eyelides for as long as I could bare.

I poured a little make up remover on a cotton pad. Nothing.

Third times a charm.

Eventually the remainder of the liner came off with a wet wipe. My eyelids felt violated! If you want a 48 hour eyeliner, then this ones for you!

Lasplash Cosmetics – Brush set RRP £15

I’m not 100% sure how often you should throw away make up brushes, even though I regularly clean mine, I normally dont own a set for more than 18months. Is that just me or do others get a little grossed out by them?

I wouldnt think a set from a subscription box would be that great, but these brushes are pretty impressive.

These setting and defining eye shadow brush were dense but soft enough for the perfect application.

Beautaniq Beauty – Guardian Angel Eye Mask RRP £5

My skin is awful at the moment. I have no idea if its hormones, the lack of sun and possibly stress? But I am adoring any and all skin care

These eye masks didnt stick very well, they stayed on for around 5 minutes, all whilst I sat still, trying my best to keep my face still.
Once peeling these off, my skin felt a little tacky but with no difference. How disappointing.

Overall, air am happy with the box. I have mixed feeling regarding the Huda beauty liner, and am pleasantly surprised with the make up remover cloths.

Have you tried any of these products before? And what did you think of them?

Blogmas Day 4 : Mystery Glossybox

Good afternoon friends, and welcome to day 4 of Blogmas!

This month, Glossybox were selling Mystery boxes for just £5, and I jumped at the chance. I’ve always wanted to buy a mystery box but I’m always a little unsure about it as in all honesty, it could be filled with crap!

Now I thought that it would be a Glossybox filled with random mystery goods, I didn’t realise that it would be a box from a previous month. I recieved the ‘All you need is love’, February box.

I’m surprised that I didn’t receive the card telling you about the products, so I’ve googled the prices instead.

Heres a quick run down of the products I recieved.

2x Mugler male and female samples

I’m pretty sure you can get these for free, it’s a nice thought but I’m not crazy on samples in subscription boxes.

Nails Inc Nail Varnish RRP £6

Now this is a gorgeous colour that I’ll get alot of wear out of. Reds, pinks and golds are my favourites!

Regenerate Enamel Science toothpaste (mini) RRP £7.99

As I’ve mentioned before I’m not a massive fan or receiving toothpaste in subscription boxes. What more is there to say… let’s move on.

Luxie Make up Brush RRP £14.99

This Luxie brush is perfect for high light. I prefer a thinner brush like this as some highlighter brushes are the same style but much thicker, and collects a little bit too much highlighter for my taste. This ones perfect!

Vitamasques Vitamin Mask RRP £4.99 (4 pack)

I do love a good face mask. I only did one yesterday, so I’ll put this one to the side for another day. This time of year, who can have too many skin products?

Huda Beauty lip liner RRP £14

Now this was the stand out product for me. This lipliner goes on so creamy, and lasted me all day yesterday, which was perfect for a full day of shopping. A Huda beauty product in a Glossybox is always a nice treat, but even better when you weren’t expecting it!

Over all I’m really happy with my £5 box!

For this price I would definalty reccomend doing a mystery box… but wouldn’t do one again myself, as I have a monthly subscription for Glossybox and would recieve duplicates.
