Glossybox ~ February

So Glossybox was VERY delayed this month and kept people wondering whether or not they would get it before the end of the month, and also about the items included- would it be worth the wait? Here’s the first look! … Continue reading

GlossyBox ~ January

Hey all! So I finally got my January GlossyBox (they seemed to be delayed sending to the east coast this month, possibly because of the snow storms), but I was still excited! They had released some spoilers earlier in the … Continue reading

Limited Edition Elle GlossyBox

So, I just received an e-mail from Elle and GlossyBox, that there is an editor-approved limited edition box being released. Since I’ve been a GlossyBox subscriber for 6+ months, I have a feeling most of these are ‘repeat’ items, but … Continue reading

GlossyBox ~ August

 So I’m normally a total GlossyBox Advocate but this month was so-so. I’ll show you all the products and explain as I go along…

image

First off, not totally sure if it’s their fault or mine, but I cancelled my monthly sub (after being billed) and started up a 6-month sub with a discount code they were offering (and used Ebates too for an extra $2.75) So, I contacted them on the 16th and was like “Just wanted to see if you could delay it so I don’t get billed/shipped two of the same boxes…” and didn’t get a response back so I e-mailed again a week later and it had already been shipped. So… I dealt with it and crossed my fingers that I would love the products.

The theme this month was Bohemian summer, and I really liked their packaging as usual and that they send a card with information on the products.

image

So I opened up my box to see a Guess GlossyBox Bag and a 30% coupon. I’m not a huge Guess person, except loving their magazine ads, so perhaps I’ll check it out online. The bag is so-so, I can definitely use it to hold makeup or pens/pencils at work.

I was happy to see the Sue Devitt product, as I had received a lip/cheek compact from a Shecky’s event last year and really liked it. This one is a Sue Devitt Triple C-Weed Pressed Powder is a high-quality powder used on top of foundation/bb cream to help give the look of flawless skin. It’s a one-color-fits-all and I have a feeling I’ll like it.

The Novex Brazillian Keratin Care Cream seems like a cool item, as it contains ingredients to help nourish and repair dry or damaged hair. I’ve had good results with other keratin products in the past, so I have my fingers crossed that this works well.

image

The Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush had me really excited, even though I had already received a Pop Beauty Hot Pink Lip Crayon in my July Ipsy Glambag. So, I had my hopes that they would send another color to me.. perhaps a red or coral. Unfortunately not, but I like the product so far, so having 3 of them just gives me a year-long supply!

image

Anatomicals Spray Misty For Me Facial Spritz is another so-so product for me. I have received a Juice Beauty Misting Face Spray in a prior Ipsy Glambag, and an Evian Facial Spray in my FabFitFun Box this quarter (review up soon!) and so I don’t have too much of a use for it. At first I thought it was a beachy hair mist, which seems to be a hot product for subscription boxes this summer. This facial mist may have been helpful during the heat wave this year, but right now I have a feeling I’ll barely get through one bottle.

image

Now.. onto what I’m most disappointed about: I don’t think I would have minded the double-boxes based on the Lip Blush, Sue Devitt Powder and possibly even the Novex Hair Product, however the final product I got in the box was a ModelCo Dual Eyeshadow.

image

Now, if this is the first time I saw/got the product, it wouldn’t be a problem. However, I not only got the ModelCo Eyeshadow in both boxes, instead of the nail polish that everyone else seemed to receive, but I had already received the ModelCo Eyeshadow as a “Special Extra” by using the promo code LOVE when I signed up and got my box in June (review here). It doesn’t seem like I got an ‘extra’ if they’re using it and sending it out as one of the main products in this months box. So yeah, now I have 3 of the same exact dual ModelCo Eyeshadow…. Great.

image

Well, I signed up for a 6-month subscription and have 5 months left… I really am hoping that GlossyBox steps up their game for next month and include some good quality and unique products. Fingers crossed….
