Woke up in Spring with Glossybox

April has usually brought with it blue skies and some sunshine as well as warmer temperatures. Although we also expect those April showers to occur I don’t think anyone, least of all me, was expecting snow forecasts and hailstones over the past week!

I’m cautiously optimistic that that’s behind us now and we can focus on some warmer weather coming our way! This months Glossybox has the theme of waking up in spring and some lovely little products to change up our makeup!

First of all is a product from Minus 417, Serenity Legend Hydrating Dead Sea Bath Salts. With minerals and salts to help your body retain moisture, Dead Sea salts are renowned for giving you soft smooth skin. I’ve used similar products a lot over the years for my psoriasis I and really like Dead Sea salts for relieving inflammation.

Minus 417 Serenity Legend Dead Sea Bath Salts Deluxe Mini 100g £2.17

Next is our sneak peek from last month, an eyeshadow quad from Sophia and Mabelle. This is a lovely little palette with four everyday shades with matte and shimmers. They’d be great for a simple natural eye look to just give a bit of a boost to your natural eye contour. This is full size and would cost £25 which seems pricy to me for a quad palette. The shadow itself has a nice texture and good pigment but I don’t know that I’d be happy paying £25 for 4 shadows. They are pretty nice when swatched and I can see myself definitely using this.

Another full size product included is the Feel Free Antioxidant Eye Contour cream. This is a lovely light formula and has a citrusy smell which isn’t too strong. Being an eye cream it’s main aim is to hydrate the delicate skin under your eye as well as brighten and balance your skin tone. I love getting eye creams in these boxes as it’s definitely an area I am focused on staying hydrated, it’s so important to use an eye cream to keep those fine lines at bay!

Feel Free Antioxidant Eye Contour Cream £4.77

Next is a liquid blush from DWTN Paris and while I love liquid and cream blush I will admit the colour of this put me off at first. It’s quite an orange toned red but it does blend out nicely. Just not too sure about it suiting my skin tone.

AHAVA mineral shower gel is our last product and this smells really nice. It says it has pomegranate and cherry blossom scent so definitely a nice one for the spring and summer. I think I will keep this one for when we hopefully get away for a little break in the summer, fingers crossed no more lockdowns.

Deluxe mini 25ml worth £4.49

May’s sneak peek is Rodial Dragon Blood eye masks which sounds interesting and the box itself has the theme “Let the sun shine” so I’m excited to see what else will be included! What did you think of this box?

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

Pretty Pleasures

As we move into March and toward an end to the lockdowns in the UK, fingers crossed! This months Glossybox is all about thinking about the warmer days pastel colours and generally feeling the pretty pleasures of spring!

There are 5 products this month and a makeup heavy box this time which I am pleased about. So let’s dive in and see what we have.

Figs and Rouge Satin Soft Blurring Primer & Finishing Fix is our first item. I love a good primer and having used Figs and Rouge products before I have high hopes for this! This costs £38 to purchase and contains hyaluronic acid, marshmallow root and as the name describes it aims to blur imperfections and minimise shine for a perfect make up base. It also has anti inflammatory properties to reduce breakouts. I love the Figs and Rouge packaging it is so pretty and very millennial pink.

Figs and Rouge Satin Soft Blurring Primer & Finishing Fix £38

Nails Inc is our next treat with a nail polish called Palace Gardens, a really pretty pastel blue grey . Nails Inc has long been one of my favourite brands for nail polish and this one is no exception. Really love the colour and this is one I can see getting a lot of wear out of. This is £11 to purchase.

Nails Inc Palace Gardens £11

Beautaniq Beauty Nourishing Mascara is next and this is not a brand I’ve used before. This has conditioning ingredients like Camellia and Almond Oil to strengthen your lashes. The brush is oversized and designed to grip and coat every lash. I’m coming to the end of my mascara so this was a welcome addition !

Beautaniq Beauty Nourishing Mascara £15.50

The So Eco sponge I actually got in a Lookfantastic box previously but I like to change my sponges regularly so this is a nice addition to the box. They are a really nice sponge and I find they blend really well. Make sure to use your sponge damp so it doesn’t soak up all of your product! These sponges also have a pointed tip, this is great for under your eyes and blending concealer. The best thing about the So Eco brand is they plant a tree for every 100 products sold which is really important to know that they are considering the environment around them.

So Eco complexion sponge

NYX Professional Makeup is one of my faves and this item is different for each subscriber. There was a lucky dip between highlighter, liquid lipstick and regular lipstick. I am so pleased with mine! Mine was a gorgeous hot pink liquid lip so pretty and definitely one I might have chosen myself. I really love NYX lip products so this was a really good choice for me.

NYX Professional soft matte metallic lip creme £6

Next month we have a sneak peek announcement of an eyeshadow palette from a new brand Sophia and Mabelle. No details on colour or anything just yet. Their website details them as a very inclusive brand which is really great to hear. A quote on their website reads

With all skin tones and age ranges in mind, we created this beauty brand where anyone can come and find something that will be a staple in their beauty routine. S+M welcomes all walks of life, because beauty should reflect who you are on the inside, not the outside. We are proud to sample our products on persons of all ages, genders, sexualities, and will continue to strive at being an all-inclusive “made for everyBODY” beauty brand.

I’m looking forward to seeing what the eyeshadow palette is next month!

Glossybox February 2021

Sing dance love repeat! Or so goes the theme of the February Glossybox with the cutest cassette design to the box, very retro and giving me major flashbacks to buying cassette singles in Our Price… showing my age there !

There are 5 products in this months box which, as it’s February, are aimed at giving you everything you need to be prepped and reading for Valentine’s Day.

First is our sneak peek from last month and it’s an Avant Velvet Perfecting Rose Sugar Lip Scrub. Of course this is to perfect your pout for Valentine’s kisses. Rose is not my favourite scent for skincare but this seems ok and as it’s a scrub I don’t think it will bother me as much. This is a full size and costs £58 to purchase. It’s meant to get rid of any dead skin cells so your lips are prepped and kissable for Valentine’s Day.

Continuing the lip theme is a Steve Laurant total repair lip mask which is £5. This is to give your lips a burst of hydration so perfect for getting over the cold winter weather.

Next we have a product we were meant to get last month but which was delayed due to COVID and the issues at ports. It’s a Rose Gua Sha. This is a skin tool which helps reduce inflammation and promote better circulation. It’s not something I’ve tried before but I will definitely give it a go to see if it works! This is £10 to purchase.

What would a Valentine box be without a nice lip pencil? I’ve had one of these Nudestix lip and cheek pencils before and I loved it. The formula is so creamy and blends brilliantly. This one is more of a balm than the previous one I had which is nice and I love the red shade for Valentine’s Day. This is a full size and costs £20 and I like that it’s multi use as well being for lips and cheeks.

Bubble T Peach Bellini hand cream is our next product and it smells amazing! All of the cold winter weather really takes it’s toll on my skin so this is perfect for sitting next to me in the office so I can keep applying throughout the day. I go through a lot of hand cream and this is a really nice formula. This costs £4.99 and is a full size item.

So in total this months box is worth £97.99 making it great value for money once again!

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

Glossybox January 2021

January’s theme is The Power of Beauty with 6 products to get us kicking off 2021 feeling fresh and showing our natural beauty!

January 2021 Glossybox

So first we have some reusable face pads, designed to replace the need for disposable wipes and cotton pads. I’ve been wanting to try something like this and I was pleasantly surprised. I’d always been put off by the idea of having to wash them and also whether they’d work as well as cotton wool. I used these with makeup remover and they work really well. My only recommendation when washing would be to use a delicates bag so they don’t end up getting lost in the washer! They washed and dried nicely and stayed soft so these are a winner for me.

Daily Reusable Rounds £6.80

Next is a moisturising serum from ECooking perfect for the winter weather. This is a really fine serum and works nicely under my moisturiser. I’ve been using it daily and am seeing my skin looking more moisturised and fresher.

Moisturising serum ECooking £22.50 Deluxe mini size

Saint Luxe Beauty is a brand I’ve had before in a Glossybox, we got some lip liners last year which were nice. This time it’s a brow gel to keep those brows in shape and make them stay put. It’s a really nice clear brow gel, no stickiness when applying and keeps everything in place, a nice addition to the box.

Saint Luxe Brow Gel £16

Mudmasky Undereye Mask is our next product . Mudmasky has been in quite a few Glossybox’s and is a brand I really enjoy using. This is an under eye mask to apply to clean skin and to help with the elasticity of the skin which as I’m sure you know is thinner and more delicate in your under eye area. This is a really nice serum infused mask and my skin felt lovely afterward. They say it takes between 4-7 uses to see improvement so I will look forward to that if it happens! This was a replacement product as Glossybox had a supplier issue but they did inform everyone via email prior to the box being sent.

Mudmasky Undereye Mask £42

Beauty Pro Avocado Infused Sheet Mask is a hydrating and moisturising mask, completely plant based so great for anyone who is wanting to put more skincare of that range into their routine. Beauty Pro products always seem really nice and this is no exception a lovely sheet mask and nice for a little pamper afternoon!

Beauty Pro Avocado Sheet Mask £4.95

Well hand sanitiser is something we are all getting used to using on a regular basis so this Your Sanitiser was a good addition to the box! It’s a perfect handbag size so great for on the go and works well on sensitive skin. It also kills 99.999% of germs so definitely a great find in the current climate!

Your Sanitiser £2.72

If you got this months box what did you think? My favourite is the E Cooking serum and the brow gel but I think it was a really well rounded box for January.

Total value of this months box is £94.97 which is fantastic value for money. The sneak peek for February is an Avant Velvet Perfecting Rose Sugar Lip Scrub to prep our pout for Valentine’s Day!

I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

Fenty beauty x Glossybox

Hey everyone! Hope you enjoy this post about my special edition Glossybox purchase which was a collaboration with Fenty Beauty in December. If you don’t know Fenty Beauty is the line created by Rhianna and has become iconic for its products which are known for their pigmented shades and staying power. This box was a limited edition and sold out super fast, it was my Christmas present to myself ! There are 6 products here to show you and as I’ve had a little time to try them out I can give a review.

The Fenty Beauty x Glossybox £30

So first we have the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in the shades Mean money / Hustla Baby. These are described as a soft champagne and peachy champagne and it’s a full size. This is £28 to purchase usually and pretty much means the box pays for itself after this. I really like these colours and they are perfect for an everyday highlight. You could layer it up to be more dramatic too.

Next is the Fairy Bomb Shimmer Powder in the shade 24Kray again a full size item and this is a really fine loose powder and a glittery gold shade. It really is a gorgeous powder which can be used over the face and eyes for an illuminating effect. I used this at Christmas for a sheer effect on the eyes and it looked so nice. I think this would be really great for another highlight effect on the cheeks. This is £24 to purchase.

Also included is a portable highlighter brush which is slanted so you can trace the angle of your face. This would be fab for either your hand bag or for travelling. I absolutely love all of the packaging for this range it’s really edgy and sleek. This retails for £19

Pro Filt’r Mini Instant Retouch Primer £15 is a mattifying primer to give you a filter effect and blur all those imperfections. I’ve been looking for a new primer for a while and not really found anything I’ve been wowed by. I really like this formula and found my foundation sat beautifully and didn’t slide off during the day!

Stunna Lip Paint- Unbutton £20 is a peachy nude matte liquid lip colour and having used a couple of these previously I can definitely recommend their staying power! I really love this colour as it’s perfect for everyday and stays put. A perfect nude shade that would suit a range of skin tones.

Deluxe mini size of Full Frontal Volume Lift and Curl Mascara full size £21 this is one of the newer products from the Fenty range and has a specially designed “flat to fat” brush to give lashes volume, length and curl- who doesn’t want that for their lashes? This was ideal for a test of whether or not I’d like the formula , I hate purchasing mascara and then finding that I just don’t like it and having wasted money. I really like this formula and the brush is great for grabbing all your lashes and really coating them in the product. I would definitely consider purchasing the full size of this.

I loved this box for giving me a chance to try more of the Fenty Beauty range as I’ve previously just had an eyeshadow palette and a couple of lipsticks. It was an absolute bargain when you add up the total value of the products they are £106 altogether and the box was £30. (I haven’t included a price for the mascara sample)

Some of the collaboration boxes have been hit and miss for me with Glossybox but this was a really great one and such good value, I’m hoping there might be more like this on the cards during 2021!

What do you guys think? Do you have any Fenty Beauty recommendations? I’m thinking of trying their foundation next as I’ve heard great things.

Advent is getting expensive!

So December the first is upon us and it’s time for those advent calendars to start being opened.

Advent is getting more and more luxurious and expensive as it’s not just your basic chocolate advent calendar that’s available. Everything from beauty and makeup to gin, cheese and Lego, you can pretty much get anything you want in an advent calendar!

This year I went for Glossybox , which is the calendar I got last year, and the ASOS Face and Body advent calendars. The main reason I got them is because of the quality of the products and value for money. I saved 20% on my ASOS calendar and with Glossybox you get a subscriber discount and can also use your Glossycredit which is credit you build up on Glossybox for completing monthly surveys.

Day 1 of the Glossybox advent calendar 2020

Did you get an advent calendar this year? If so would love to know what you went for!

ASOS Face and Body advent calendar Day 1

I’ll be unboxing these everyday on my Instagram page @vanessakay84 if you want to follow along!

Glossybox November 2020

Makeup and Magic is the theme this month with glitter, shimmer and magic products to keep us looking glam this November. Even though we are locked down in the UK right now it’s a fab time to play around with new looks and I love when my subscription boxes arrive each month!

Makeup and Magic Glossybox November 2020

First we have a beautiful eyeshadow palette from L.A Splash which fits perfectly with the magic theme right down to the packaging. There are 8 shades in the palette 3 shimmers and 5 mattes. They are a lovely autumnal mix of shades and are really highly pigmented. This is my standout product from the box and one I know I will get a lot of use from. This is a full size and it will be perfect for if we ever get back to travelling as it’s also got a little mirror included.

Paired perfectly with the eyeshadow palette is the Spectrum blender brush. I really love getting nice brushes and I’ve built up a good collection now from these boxes! This is perfect for working shadow into the crease of your eye and matches the colour scheme of the palette with gold and black.

Next up is a Que Bella mask and this one is Moonstone Recharge and Restore Glitter Mask. We had one of these in a box previously but I got a gold one so I’m pleased to get a different one. This one is designed to give you radiant glowing skin and help your skin feel brighter. I love the little bits of shimmer in it too makes it feel so cute!

Que Bella Professional Purple Moonstone Glitter Gel Mask £2.49

The next item is a replacement, it was meant to be a Mudmasky Autumn Mask but instead we have been given Generation Clay Ultra-Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask, worth £19.50. I know I’ve complained about product changes before but I am not bothered about this one, mainly because it’s a similar product and it’s a relatively similar price. It’s a brightening purple clay mask with Australian Davidson plum (a natural super fruit that gently acts like an exfoliating acid), it will transform your appearance by rejuvenating dull, tired skin, and lightening dark circles and pigmentation. Definitely everything I’d want in a face mask!

Generation Clay Brightening Purple Clay Mask £19.50

Lastly a favourite of mine and a regular in beauty boxes Hask Argan Oil Repairing Deep Conditioner. I really love these masks as my hair has a tendency to get really dry and frizzy. The Argan oil one is a favourite, firstly it smells incredible and secondly it only takes 10 minutes to work which means you can apply in the shower. I usually pick these up on my weekly shop as they are available in most supermarkets and pharmacies.

Hask Argan Oil Deep Conditioner £2

Decembers sneak peek is is an Overnight Eye Serum by Symbiosis, eye serums and creams are always a welcome addition for me and I love to try new ones so I am looking forward to that.

Decembers sneak peek worth £102 !

If you got this months box what did you think? My favourite item is definitely the eyeshadow and brush! I will definitely get use out of everything as I really love my face masks and hair masks!

Total value of this months box is £60.98 which is so great and especially as I know I will get so much use out of everything. I said last months box was my favourite of the year but I think this is a hot contender! I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month including postage and packaging. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

Glossybox Enchanted Spirit October 2020

October’s Glossybox is always a fab one and for once 2020 hasn’t disappointed us! 5 items in this gorgeous Enchanted Spirit themed box which I will definitely be keeping!

There were two versions of the box this month, Enchanted Spirit and Midnight Fantasy with little difference between the two apart from some shade and scent variations. Both boxes are designed beautifully to give you all the lotions and potions you need to transform this October, perfect for the spooky Halloween season!

First we have AHC Essential Eye Cream for Face. I was a little confused by the name of this and on reading the card it’s described as, “a face cream with all the benefits of a concentrated eye cream” It makes more sense on reading that which means it can just be used as an eye cream or you can use it all over the face in a thin layer for an extra moisture boost. This is a deluxe mini and worth £8.66. It’s a gel texture which I really like for a nightcream / eye cream and feels really nice on my skin. Will see what the effects are in the coming weeks!

Next is BubbleT with a Stardust foaming bath powder in Lavender. The Midnight Fantasy Box would have the rose scent. I’m so pleased I got the lavender one as I really don’t like strong rose scents ! This bubbles up so nicely in the bath and is a lovely calming scent before bed so definitely a winner! This is a full size worth £5.99.

Luna by Luna lipstick in the shade Pixie is our next product and it’s a really pretty red. I do love a nice red colour for the autumn months and this has a nice pink tone to it. This is full size and worth £15. It feels really nice on the lips and is pretty smooth to apply.

I haven’t tried this next product before and it has rave reviews so I’m excited to try the Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer. This is a deluxe mini worth £10 and it’s billed as a part hydrator part primer. This feels really nice on the skin and has a clear gel texture, reminds me of the Smashbox Photo Finish primer. This is perfect for the colder weather as it says it works to maintain hydration in your skin.

Next is The Beauty Crop Stargazing blush duo in the shade Orion which has a bronze and a coral shade. I love that there are two shades in the compact, one matte and one with a light shimmer. You can wear them alone or layer the matte with the shimmer for a nice glow, they are really nicely pigmented. I will definitely get a lot of use out of this as I’ve just come to the end of a similar blush. This is a full size and is worth £18.

Last of all we had another little chocolate treat in the form of a Cadbury’s Dark Milk sample. If you’ve not tried Dark Milk before it’s meant to be a mix of dark and milk chocolate and it’s actually a favourite of mine. In my opinion it’s like a richer version of Dairy Milk and a less bitter version of a traditional dark chocolate. I love when we get little extras like this in the box!

Total value of this months box is £57.65 which is really great and especially as I know I will get so much use out of everything. It may well be one of my favourites from Glossybox this year! I have a yearly subscription to Glossybox which costs 11.75 per month. There are loads of different options if you wanted to sign up from a monthly rolling subscription to 3, 6 and 12 month plans like the one I do. I do have a referral code if you click here which will get you 20% off your first box.

The sneak peek for November looks exciting as it’s a eyeshadow palette from LASplash worth £29. It looks like a nice mix of autumn colours and having had a few products of theirs before I know they are really good.

Did you get this months Glossybox ? What did you think of the products this month?

Glossybox GlossySpa Box September 2020

This month Glossybox are bringing the spa to our homes with a skincare focused box to give the ultimate relaxation.

First is the sneak peek from last month, Avant hyaluronic Moisturiser. Avant has popped up in a few beauty boxes lately and I’m not mad about it! I absolutely love their products especially the moisturisers which are so nourishing and rich. It’s really expensive, £89!and it is definitely a product I really enjoy. It has avocado oils as well for a really hydrating formula.

Avant Supreme Hyaluronic Acid Anti-oxidising Duo Moisturiser £89

Next is a Mine Tan exfoliating coffee scrub, this is a sample size. I’ve talked before about how much I love my tea scrub so I was looking forward to trying this out! It was similar to one I received in an ASOS box in the summer from Frank Body and really great for my skin helping my get all the flaky skin from my psoriasis off without scratching or hurting my sore skin. Slight difference with this compared to others is you use the scrub on wet skin in the shower and then leave it for about five minutes to dry before rinsing. As always with these type of scrubs m, prepare for some mess! And make sure you really rinse the shower tray as it can stain if you don’t!

Deluxe Mini size Minetan Coffee Scrub £11

Next is the Yo Glow Enzyme scrub by Wishful which is the skincare line by Huda Kattan, founder of Huda Beauty. This is a mini size and it seems really nice. It’s always interesting when makeup lines expand into skincare as sometimes it doesn’t always work. This is really nice and has made me think I might look into other products from the range. It’s a face scrub with pineapple and papaya enzymes and my skin felt so smooth afterward.

Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme scrub £9 (Full size £34)

There was a variation in some boxes and I got the eye gels from Generation Skin. I love eye mask/ gels like these as I have really bad dark circles so these are fab to up my hydration and sort out any puffiness. They have an Australian ingredient called Kaduku Plum which has antioxidants and Vitamin C to help brighten the under eye area. Fab for a bit of relaxation!

Generation Skin Eye Patches £7.84 for 1 pair

Finally I got a Imperial Leather Foamburst shower gel, I got a sample of one of these last year and I really like them. They foam up in the shower – similar to shaving gel , and the scent is amazing. This is actually the one I buy ( along with the unicorn scent!) so I’m really pleased! They are also really moisturising so perfect if you have dry or sensitive skin like me.

Imperial Leather Foamburst Body Wash £2

As an extra treat this month there’s a Lindt Lindor chocolate bar included which will go down well I am sure with the subscribers! Lindt is one of my favourite chocolates and I’ve already bought us a tin of the new Lindor chocolates ready for Christmas! But as I was feeling extra nice I let my hubby have this as he had been feeling under the weather and had hurt his foot so I did a good deed!

Lindt Lindor Chocolate bar 85p

I was really pleased with this months box, perfect for a mini pamper at home. My faves from this box have to be the Wishful face scrub, Avant moisturiser and the Generation Skin eyegels. The total value of this months box was £119.69 which is amazing and definitely worth the monthly fee.

I have a yearly subscription with Glossybox and pay £11.75 inc postage and packaging for my box each month. Glossybox has lots of options for subscribing which you can view on their website

Glossybox Birthday Edition August 2020

A late dispatch again from Glossybox but thankfully no exchanged products this time. This box is birthday themed in honour of Glossyboxes 9th birthday and was packaged with this lovely box and bow.

First is the Glossybox Eye Boost Cream which is part of their new skincare range. This feels really nice and absorbs well, it definitely helps with puffiness but I will have to try it a bit longer to see if it can sort dark circles as it claims!

Glossybox Eye Boost Cream Subscriber price £16 RRP £20

Next is the highlight product of this month a Huda Beauty Demi Matte Cream Lipstick. There were 10 different shades and I got a really nice taupe brown nude. This is a really nice satin finish and it glides on so nicely. It’s really pigmented too and I love the formula. The staying power isn’t too bad and with the lipliner in this box it doesn’t bleed.

Huda Beauty Demi Matte Liquid Lipstick in Revolutionnaire £18

A staple of anyone’s makeup bag is a makeup sponge and this one is from HD Wonder. Not a great deal to say on this but it’s a nice tool to get to use everyday. I love these and like to apply my foundation and loose powders with these.

HD Wonder Complexion Sponge £5.49

I really love a nicely scented shower gel and this one from Molton Brown is gorgeous. I was worried when it said Rhubarb and Rose as I’m not keen on strong rose scents but I can’t really get the Rose notes in this. It’s a really sweet rhubarb smell and is lovely either in the bath or shower. Molton Brown is a brand I’ve always liked in particular the ginger lily and pink peppercorn scents are my fave but this is a close second.

Molton Brown Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath and Shower Gel £7.33 Deluxe mini size

Last but not least we have a lip liner by Steve Laurant. This is a brand I’ve seen a lot in beauty boxes and I do like their products. The colour is called Vogue and it’s a waterproof liner and stays put for up to 7 hours. This works really well with the Huda lipstick included in the box and it really does have good staying power – although I can’t say I’ve tested it for 7 hours!

Steve Laurant Vogue Lip Liner £12.09

This months box value is £58.91 which is great value again and this month is all products I will use. My standouts are the Huda and Steve Laurant for sure and I know I will use them a lot.

Swatches of the Huda Lipstick (top) and Steve Laurant Lipliner (bottom)
The full box contents £11.75 on the 12 monthly plan

The sneek peek for September is an Avant Moisturiser worth £89, I’ve had a few of their products before and they are really good.

Coming up in September is the release of the Advent Calendar. This is £80 for subscribers and released on the 8th September with brands like Huda, iconic and LimeCrime included so I am looking forward to that as last years was amazing and I really enjoyed it.

I’m hoping some of the issues Glossybox have had are going to be ironed out now as although this box was later than usual they did communicate much better about the issues they had and there were no product changes.
