I've only received two Glossybox's so far and it took me about 6 months to give in and bother to get involved in the Glossybox craze, I'm not the most frugal person but I was so skeptical about them, I just kept thinking is £12.95 really worth the chance of having 5 terrible samples. The first Glossybox I got (July 2012) I was thoroughly impressed with, hence why I carried on my subscription! It had Monu, Elizabeth Arden and Kroylan! So perhaps I had high hopes for this box!
It came this morning - earlier than expected which was a nice surprise! And on first impressions (I didn't read the card just opened it straight up) I thought it looked promising.
My Glossybox contained these items...
Vera Valenti L'Ombre a Paupiere Margarita
When I first saw this I thought that it might be a concealer palette and I got really excited. To my dismay it's just a cheap eyeshadow palette, £3.89 to be exact. The colours are ones I wouldn't buy plus they are chalky and not very pigmented. Strike one!
Though an interesting concept - this claims to stop liptick from bleeding and prolong the wear of your lipstick when applied over the product- it stinks. It smells like nail varnish and that makes me uncomfortable about putting it near my very sensitive lips. So yet another sample I won't get use out of. It's the full size and costs £3.99.
Glossybox Lipstick in Glossy Pink.
This is kind of cheating, don't you think? I don't want Glossybox samples, but it's a nice enough dusty pink to add to my tens of other dusty pinks! This costs £9.50 to buy, no chance!
Valentino Valentina Assoluto
It's a really nice smell when it sinks in but for 50ml it costs £61. That's too steep for something i'm not in awe of. And the size of the sample is abit crappy too. Eh.
Alessando Pro White
A nail whitening treatment. Since I always use a basecoat I don't tend to get discoloured nails but I suppose its a nice enough thing to own. This is £7.85 at full size, which I think is what they have included in this glossybox.
DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
I am quite intrigued by this, i'll have to try it out, its an oil cleanser for makeup that claims to remove makeup effortlessly. We shall see! Still, I don't think it makes up for this crappy Glossybox!
As you can probably tell, this has put me in a bit of a shoddy mood aha! Another waste of money! Hopefully you had a better one than me!
