GlossyBox – March 2018

IMG_20180318_231722

Hello April, hello Easter and helloooooo GlossyBox.

I hope you are all doing well. Honestly I wanted to post about Tales of Berseria since I recently beat the game and I wanted to outline my thoughts about it but I noticed that beauty related posts does a lot better which stresses me out since I don’t want to start focusing on numbers and how my posts attract traffic. I’ll post it anyway on Thursday, I still want to post about games.

Anyway here’s my review for March GlossyBox …

IMG_20180318_231836

FORM – Multitask. Leave-In Lotion

A hair product yay. I honestly love the smell of this, it’s very light-weighted. It left my hair softer and more easier to manage when its having the dry days. I would actually go for the full size of this, that’s how much I love it.

Figs & Rouge – Soft Focus Pore Perfect HD + Matte Veil

I didn’t use it, I gave it to my sister so I’m taking her words for it. It did make her skin smooth as a base for her foundation but didn’t help much with the shine and it felt patchy after awhile so she wouldn’t recommend it. Let me know if you got a different result.

De Bruyère Beauté – Jumbo Eye Pencil (Bubble 07)

I got this eye pencil before back in November 2016, I still like it. It blends easily and the color is pretty nice and has a nice shimmer.

COVER FX – Perfect Pencil Concealer (Medium)

I never really tried any Cover FX products so I was excited to try this out. It’s very useful for little touchups and defining the brow arch, I wouldn’t say it’s good for larger areas like the circles under the eyes.

I forgot to mention, it’s blendable.

Morgan Taylor Nail Polish (Heaven Sent)

Subscribers will receive one of three colors and I got this white one. The formula is a bit too runny, I wasn’t expecting that so it was a messy experience for me. It needs plenty of coats to reach the desired shade since it’s really too sheer, I didn’t like it that much.

Unani il-lumnate Milk Cleanser

This item is labeled as Glossy Fave so this may vary for subscribers but I’m really glad I got this cleanser. I got it before back in October 2016 and it’s been my favorite cleanser for a pretty long time, it leaves my face soft and fresh.

Overall, after my disappointment on February box, this month products redeems itself and I’m back in love with GlossyBox.

GlossyBox – February 2018

IMG_1690

It’s been awhile since I last posted, again I’ve been under the weather and it’s not exactly fun. Also I’ve been ticked off from a French website that took my latest post, translated it fully word by word in Google Translate which showed in the many grammar mistakes their post had, and ignored my emails and comments that I sent to the owner about it. It made me upset but at the same time it validates that I’m getting relevant in the blogging scene ? Maybe I’m just telling myself that, anyway I’m back and hopefully I won’t miss a posting day again. Here’s the review of the February Glossybox …

IMG_1691.jpg

Royal Apothic Scrubbie Exfoliating Lip Treatment

Honestly when I saw a sneak peek of this product last month, I was very excited to try it out because I’ve always wanted to use those sugar lips scrub. It’s sweet and fruity as it’s written “fig” on it but also slightly oily so it keeps your lips moisturized even after washing the sugar off, you can use a lip balm after it or keep it that way.

JJ Young Pore Green Tea Mud Sheet Mask

Now I’m familiar with sheet masks but this isn’t any ordinary sheet mask, it’s a 3D mud mask. The packaging is all in Korean so I applied the mask the way I think it should be and I felt like it’s a bit messy and not exactly easier compared to normal mud masks so I wouldn’t say I liked this product that much.

Luxie Makeup Brush

Aaaaaaand I already got this brush from a previous Glossybox so that was disappointing.

John Masters Organics Geranium & Grapefruit Body Wash and Milk

This set smells absolutely amazing, I really love it. The lotion gets absorbed really fast and it doesn’t feel greasy or sticky afterwards.

Doucce Gloss Wear Lip Gloss

I don’t really mind getting lip glosses but … This one had my jaw drop because I got the shade 766 (Tasty Mango) and it’s really bright. It’s definitely not my shade and I can’t ever wear such a bright in-your-face lip color. I would say though the formula is really nice and creamy, also it took a long time to wash off so I can safely say it’s long-wearing.

IMG_1694

Overall, I think this is the first time I feel disappointed from Glossybox. I was hoping from something more since it’s around Valentine’s season, I would say the body wash and milk are my favorite products this month.

Glossybox – January 2018

IMG_1323

I wanted to post this earlier but I’ve been scheduling posts in the past two weeks trying to give the post topics more variety and also I wanted some time to use the products that was sent out if I can notice any difference.

IMG_1327

Steve Laurant – Dusty Rose Lip Tint

At first I was a bit intimidated seeing “lip gloss” because the last time I wore a lip gloss was back when I was a teenager and I was afraid it’ll been like those old super shiny lip glosses, see how old fashioned I am ? Thankfully I was wrong and it turned out to be a really nice pink almost natural, I used it after applying liquid lipsticks using my finger and it gave my lips a subtle shine as if my lips were smooth. I love it, it can be used as a cream blush as well since it blends so well.

Theorie – Marula Oil Transforming Hair Serum

I think I mentioned before that I love getting hair products, and this came in a perfect time since the serum I was using just finished. I wish it came in a larger size since I have a very thick hair so 10ml isn’t exactly enough for me. It helps protecting your hair from heat and also adds shine which I noticed.

IMG_1328

Dr Botanicals – Moroccan Rose Superfood Facial Oil

I’m all for the “100% Natural” label, it makes me feel safe of the stuff I put on my skin. Honestly I was afraid it would be thick in consistency since it was an oil substance but it was the complete opposite, it’s very light, smells really nice and it got absorbed quickly.

Lumene Lahde – Pure Dew Drops Hydrating Eye Gel

Lately I haven’t been sleeping well so it shows in my eyes as it gets puffy and dark circles began to appear. It was the perfect time to test this product, so per directions written I used it after cleaning my face couple of times now and I felt that cold sensation under my eyes which feels really refreshing.

Buxom – Big Tease Plumping Mascara

I’m a certified Mascara hoarder, seeing mascaras excites me. If you’re looking for lash separation, great volume and length, this is the mascara for you. It’s amazing I absolutely love it, too bad it’s such a small size.

Overall, loving every product in this box specially the lip tint and mascara.

Glossybox – December 2017

IMG_1317

I finally reactivated my subscription to Glossybox and I’m so happy to receive those boxes again, I really miss this. December box came a little late, in fact came together with January box but I’m not going to complain.

IMG_1320

Laura Geller – Easy Illuminating Stick in Ethereal

I’ve been introduced to Laura Geller products before when I tried Birchbox I’ve been using that highlighter for awhile now so I was happy seeing this stick from this brand. It’s definitely easy to use, just glided on my cheekbones and then I blended it with a brush since I didn’t have a sponge but it worked well. It’s the right amount of shimmer that I need for my everyday look.

Beauty For Real – I-Line 24-7 Eyeliner in Platinum Blonde 

I’m not exactly comfortable trying such bold colors for my eye makeup but in the spirit of changing, I’m willing to try it out if I want to look a little bit extra for a girls night out. It’s waterproof so it won’t budge easily.

IMG_1322

Ignore my sophisticated nail polish … design ?

IMG_1321

Show Beauty – Riche Grooming Balm

I love me some hair products, anything that helps with my abused hair makes me happy basically. The formula of this product is really light so it doesn’t leave your hair looking greasy, also it smells nice.

Makeup Drop – Original

I never really understood those silicon thingies, I tried liking them but I couldn’t. Maybe because I’m more old fashioned, I just can’t like them. They have more pros compared to normal sponges as it doesn’t absorb the foundation and can be cleaned easily, but I wouldn’t really use it so I’m going to give it to my sister (I recommend reading Lise’s post about this).

Omorovicza – Queen of Hungary Mist

This was an instant love for me, it smells absolutely amazing. I used it instead of my usual toner before applying my makeup and then after since my makeup setting spray Urban Decay All-Nighter doesn’t exactly have the best scent. I don’t why the scent of this mist is so refreshing and calming, it’s light and I can say rose-y. I could definitely see myself getting addicted to this, I will buy it that’s for sure.

Overall, feels so good to receive this subscription box again as it’s been my favorite for quite sometime. I would say the Laura Geller highlight stick and the Queen of Hungary mist are my favorite products in this box. Have you ever used those products before, let me know what do you think.

GLOSSYBOX – February 2017

img_6313

Glossybox is here and it’s so beautiful with the flowery design, it’s not exactly my cup of tea because it’s too girly for my taste. I guess they did it in a way for Valentine’s day with the hashtag #adoreGLOSSY, so it’s pink and flowery, full of love and gifts sort of?

Anyway let’s get to the unboxing …

img_6314

Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat

The first item is a nail product, it has keratin so it’ll obviously strengthen the nails. When I applied it on my nails, it made my them look more shiny like a clear nail polish but also it has a hint of pink so it looked more natural. It’s written that you should apply it weekly to make the nails more healthier so I’ll test it out in the upcoming weeks to see the effect.

Jeanne Arthes L’Eau De Rose

This perfume smells absolutely amazing, it definitely smells like roses and it’s pretty light. It came in a full size I think, but it fits to be kept in my bag which is great for me.

The Estée Edit Pink Peony Overnight Water Pack 

It’s a water-gel mask that has also pink peony, goji berry, blueberry and cranberry which you can clearly smell when you open it. I used it at night before going to bed and it didn’t seem like it’s working honestly but it did however make my skin more rosy the next morning.

Schwarzkopf Professional BC Repair Rescue Deep Nourishing Treatment

I really love trying out hair-care products because as you know I dye my hair constantly so it’s a bit damaged, I keep trying serums and conditioners to return the healthy glow. I recently did my second Pure Brazilian treatment so my hair is healthy again and softer than before, trying this product won’t show any result on me at the moment so I decided to give it to my sisters and I’ll update this part when they tell me their result.

Eve by Eve’s Eyebrow Definer

I don’t really use eyebrow products anymore since my eyebrows are naturally shaped and I always thread them every month. The product is double ended with a brush and a pen, it’s smudge-proof  and long-lasting but I’ll give it to my sisters probably since I’m not going to use it.

Overall, Glossybox never really disappointed me so far. They always send out amazing products that I really enjoy and sometimes give out to others.

Thank you for reading and have a nice day.

GLOSSYBOX- January 2017

img_5794

Sorry it took a long time to post this unboxing entry, I was too busy to test out most of the products I got in this box so I gave away few and got their feedback to write in this post. Anyway here’s Glossybox January box products with the theme #GLOSSYGOALS for the new year.

img_5795

AG Hair Cleansing Cream Foam-Free Hair Wash

The first item is a hair product and it’s apparently foam-free, I honestly never tried one so this was totally new to me. It smells minty and it felt a bit tingly when it was on my scalp and fingers, it works for both a shampoo and conditioner. It made my hair soft and helped to moisturize it as well so it’s great for dry hair.

oOlution Eye Love

My first impression of this was “Oh so this is an eyeshadow primer” I mean it does work that way somehow, it lessens the bags and dark circles and make you look like you actually slept the night. Perfect really for mothers like me who … sleeps .. all night. The cream is light-weighted actually and gets absorbed pretty fast which I do appreciate.

img_5797

Universal Beauty Cosmetics Secret Flush

I do like those small makeup products that you can keep in your bag and easy to use when I need a little touch up. This is a cream stick blusher and lip stain, it has a beautiful natural pink color with a lovely shimmer. It doesn’t fade fast, I’m content as long as the shimmer stays … Yay highlight on fleek!

img_5796

 Daily Concepts Exfoliating Body Scrubber

Let me confess something, I love scrub products. This was a nice surprise for me and the best thing about it, it has two sides. The exfoliating side is for the body and the back which was a bit softer, is for the face. It’s a cute size, I like it because it didn’t seem too harsh on my skin and it exfoliate pretty well.

La Theorie des Volcans Noir Eternae Youth Potion Face Scrub

Another scrub product yay! So this product works as a scrub and also a mask if you leave it for longer period of time. It’s actually come out as pink when you apply it and it turns to grey, it exfoliates but gently so I would consider it as a cleanser for every other day but not exactly daily.

Overall, lovely box as always. It has some really awesome stuff and I would say all items are my favorite, great way to start the year.

Glossybox – December 2016

IMG_5539.JPG

It’s hard to believe 2016 is ending already, Glossybox has been my favorite subscription box this year since I started receiving them. As you can see the design of December box is super pretty, they described it on their Instagram #GLITZandGlossy.

img_5536

La Roche-Posay Toleriane Purifying Foaming Cream Cleanser

The first item is a cleanser and it came in two sample-sized tubes, it’s gentle on the skin but gives a tingly feeling when first applied, it leaves the skin really soft and hydrated. Honestly I haven’t tried it myself, I gave it to my sister who has eczema because it seemed more gentle for her sensitive skin and she said she likes it.

img_5537

Luxie Beauty Onyx Noir Small Tapered Blending Brush 231

The brush is really soft and doesn’t shed, great for blending in small areas. I know it’s supposed to be for eyeshadow but I’m such a rebel I used it for highlighting. The brush is 100% cruelty-free and vegan.

MDMflow Semi-Matte Lipstick in Bossy

Can we first appreciate that there’s a lipstick shade called “Bossy”. I’m so in love with this lipstick, the shade is beautiful and it’s semi-matte so it doesn’t dry out your lips after some time. It’s long-wearing and can be as light as a nude color but also can get an intense shade when you apply a second layer.

MeMeMe Beat The Blues Skin Illuminator in Oyster Gold

My first impression of this item was “Oh it’s a nail polish” but it’s not, it got the same application brush though. It’s really shinny so it’s not exactly my usual choice for a highlighter as it’s more liquid.

img_5538

Harajuku Lovers Pop Electric Eau De Perfum Spray by Gwen Stefani in Lil’ Angel

I got the scent “Lil’ Angel” and I LOVE IT. It smells amazing and it’s my type of perfume, it’s floral fruity-ish with a bit of musk I guess. It looks pretty cute as well.

Overall, I can write an entire post of how much I’m loving Glossybox. I love every item I got in the box specially the perfume and lipstick.
