As you all know, I love this time of the month, as it is Glossybox review time. I am so excited about this, as I absolutely love everything in the box. It’s like a pre Christmas present given to me by myself.
In the November box, we were shown a sneak peek of a lipstick that we will be getting this month. We also had a chance to pick either the berry tone or the nude one. I opted for the nude so I was excited to see if I finally managed to get one that doesn’t make me look all washed out.
MDM Flow– Semi-matte Lipstick in the shade ‘Bossy’
YAYY!!! I have FINALLY found the perfect nude lipstick for myself. I love love love this shade. The Lipstick itself comes in a lovely gold packaging, very similar to a Vicks inhaler actually. It’s small and compact so it is great for your handbag and for travel. I cannot wait to test it for a full day. I am really excited to try it with some lip gloss, as well as on its own.
It retails for £18 which is a reasonable price these days. Also, make sure to check out the rest of their shades as there are SO SO many.
I actually have a few Essence products already, and they are EXTREMELY affordable. Honestly, they are not that bad and one of the lipsticks I have is actually my all time daily favourite. This palette has three different highlighters, which are actually rather pigmented. I was pleasantly surprised with the product and for about £3, you really can’t go wrong.
Gosh– Mono eyeshadow in the shade dark green
Gosh is actually a brand that I don’t really use all that often. I do have a beautiful purple lipstick, so I was really excited to give this a swatch. Green is actually a really nice colour to wear if you have brown eyes. I am looking forward to trying this out properly, as it is rather dark so a lot of blending is needed I think. Retail price of £8.99 I find is a little expensive, but this is why I love Glossybox.
Revlon– Nail enamel in Gray Suede
OOOHHH This is gorgeous. I actually get acrylic nails done once a fortnight as I am rubbish with applying nail varnish. I actually use a similar colour to this on my acrylics during the summer, and it is really pretty. It is another nude/pink shade, which would go well with any outfit. Revlon says that the varnish will stay on your nails for 10 days without chipping. I’m not sure about that if you do a lot of housework and washing the dishes every night, but it does seem to be a thick consistency. This is something I will gift to one of my friends. REtials at £6.49 which isn’t the cheapest but if it does what it says on the ‘tin’ I would recommend it.
And finally we got the Lipcote-Browcote
Now I was really buzzing about this as I have just used the last of my brow setter liquid. This is a waterproof transparent eyebrow gel, that promises to set your eyebrow makeup for hours. I am a big fan of perfect brows, so this is another product that I will use and hope it works just as well as it says it does. It’s priced £6.99 which isn’t too bad either.
I was truly impressed with this box as well as the past few I’ve had. I think Glossybox has done well, and I am looking forward to the January box.
