Hey Slashed Beauty readers, let me introduce you to a new subscription box I’ll be receiving monthly: Glossybox! Yes, Glossybox has been around for a bit and is known to deliver mid-to-high end beauty products, both full sized and deluxe samples. I reviewed my first box on my YouTube earlier this month, you can watch that here.
The September 2014 Glossybox was curated by Joyann King, digital director at the esteemed fashion mag: Harper’s BAZAAR. It included some of her current favorites, and made for a pretty fun box! Watch the video below for my unboxing.
Unboxing & Product Descriptions:
1. Essie Nail Polish in Madison Ave-Hue (Full Size, Retail: $8.50)
I’m a fan of Essie’s polish because of the thin, buildable formula. Madison Ave-Hue is a pretty medium pink that will be great to represent Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. It’s nice to remember we can still break out the bright colors even while we move into fall.
2. Benefit They’re Real Mascara (Sample Size, Retail: $23.00)
This is one of my favorite high-end mascaras… well, make that one of my favorite mascaras in general! I really think it has to do with the domed brush that helps lift and separate all the lashes for a fanned out look. All I know is that my lashes love this stuff!
3. Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Conditioner (Sample Size, Retail: $45.00)
Talk about fancy! This creamy conditioner smells so fresh and light. I was very impressed with the size they gave us— I could totally get a few uses out of this!
4. Vichy Liftactiv Night (Sample Size, Retail: $50)
This nighttime moisturizer is said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make skin firm. It also claims to provide 24 hours of hydration, which will be nice once the cold weather hits!
5. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar: Metallic in Authentic (Full Size, Retail: $18)
Hello Lip Tar! I love these highly pigmented liquid lipsticks with a passion. Authentic is a gorgeous bronzy copper with a metallic finish. It might sound daunting, but it’s surprisingly wearable, since it’s not too bright or flashy! Check out my lip swatch of this shade here.
This box rocked! I think this month was even better than the last. Even with the sample sizes, the value exceeds the $21 cost of the subscription service. Check out Glossybox on their website to get your own box.
But wait! I’m giving away a free box to one of my readers! The giveaway is open to the contiguous US (sorry HI and AK) and closes on October 7th. Use the widget below to enter, good luck!
