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?

Glossybox May 2020

Good afternoon friends,

Today we are unboxing the May’s Glossybox, the ‘Wild thing’ Edition.

There were 2 varieties this month, Zebra and Leopard.

I recieved the zebra box, I would of preferred the gold box, but in all honesty, I cannot stand animal print.

It’s just not for me.

I always re-use my boxes as they’re a good size, pretty, and sturdy.So I will pass this box along to a animal print lover.

Today I’ll be blogging about first impressions of the products, check back in tomorrow for my tried and tested post.

Oh! K SOS Printed Sheet Mask RRP £4

I am loving sheet masks recently! This one had me all excited as I saw a little panda at the top of the packaging, so thought it was a panda mask.I was wrong.

It’s a dalmatian mask, which is still fun, but not exactly in the ‘wild thing theme’.

Either way I’m sure I’ll look terrifying.

EOS Sphere Lip Balm RRP £6.50

I’m all about hair, skins and especially lips being soft, smooth and nourished.
Another lip balm is always a bonus.

This small, chunky but funky lip balm is easy to apply without getting your fingertips sticky.

This has a subtle sweet smell and taste.

By the way, does it remind me of Miley Cyrus ‘We cant stop music video’, people went crazy over them after that video!

Mudmask – Hairmask, Scalp Treatment and Miracle Shampoo RRP £21 75ml

This 3 in 1 Mudmask has gotten some fantastic reviews.

I shall wash my hair with it tonight and let you guys know how I get on with it.

Repairs/Strengthens/Hydrates/Moisturizes/Dandruff control

It really does sound like a dream, the only thing that throws me off is that it
Smells like talcum powder.

I have no issue with this scent… but it will smell as though you’ve tried to dry shampoo/talc your roots?

Steve Laurant Wild Side Eye Shadow Palette
RRP £31

The colours in the palette are stunning.

My perfect palette for a variety of soft smokey eye looks.

I appreciate that the palette includes a mirror, improve when its practical as well as pretty.

I’m so excited to try this out and get glammed up. It’s been a while.

Stargazers – Glitter Eyeliner Pencil RRP £2 (shade Peach)

Well, last time I was this underwhelmed by a Glossybox product was when they sent me toothpaste.

At least that was practical.

With No pride, festivals, Eurovision, Coachella… where exactly am I wearing this?

This also frustrates me because there are different varieties of the boxes which contain much more expensive products.

Now it’s not all about the money, but, instead of the eye pencil retailing at £2, you could recieve a Skin chemist
Rose quart lip plumper (balm and gloss) RRP £29.99

A item retailing a huge £27.99 more than this tacky orange glitter eye pencil.

Also, ONE swipe of the finger over this swatch and you get this.

How disappointing.

Overall, I am happy with the contents of the box, minus the ridiculous eyeliner.

What do you think of this box?
