Imagine my excitement when I opened the front door this morning and saw my first ever Glossybox waiting for me!
Now imagine how much more exciting it was seeing as I’ve never subsribed to Glossybox! I am, without a doubt, one of the luckiest girls around, I have a wonderful fiance and today he proved it, yet again, as it was him who ordered me the Glossybox as a surprise for my birthday which is at the end of the month. I’ve got it coming for a few months as my birthday present – So so happy!
I’d been wanting to try a beauty box for a while but really couldn’t make my mind up so the fiance has used my birthday as a chance to make the decision for me and let me try it for a few months. No idea if I’ll be able to carry on the subscription after but even for a few months it’s going to be lovely having a little box of excitingness arrive on my doorstep!
So here’s my first ever glossybox unboxing!
|Sassoon Professional Spray Shine|
|Miners Cosmetics Lip colour in ‘Dreamer’|
I’ve never used Miners before, but I’ve seen them whilst browsing various sites, so they’re not unheard of for me. I was surprised to see them in the box as I was under the impression that they are quite a cheap brand and as the price of this full size item is listed at £3.99 I guess I’m right. The packaging feels quite cheap and mine actually came apart a bit already, but it’s nothing that can’t be fixed. I quite like the look of it, even if it doesn’t have the best feel. But I am rather pleased with the shade that I got, it’s a lovely pinky mauve with quite a bit of shimmer; I’m yet to wear it but looking forward to seeing how it looks. The formula also feels quite soft, from when I put it on my hand, but obviously I’m yet to see how that translates on to the lips and how it impacts the longevity of the product. I also absolutely Love the smell of it, it’s a sweet, fruity candy sort of smell; it smells a lot like some of the lip glosses I had as a child, yum! I am surprised by it being in the box, but not disappointed – I do like nice packaging but I don’t mind if it’s not perfect as long as the product is good, so once I’ve tested this out properly, I’ll have a better idea.
|Mememe Cosmetics FatCat Lengthening Mascara|
I’m a Big Mememe fan! I was so so pleased to see this in the box. I’ve never tried their mascara as I’ve only just, really, gotten in to using mascara regularly, but I am really looking forward to trying this as I love the rest of the brand. This has the same, lovely, packaging design as some of my other products and, as ever, this reminds me why Mememe feel like a higher end product without the pricetag. This is another full sized product and is priced as £7.99
|Micabella Cosmetics Mineral Eye Shadow shimmer powder in ‘Intelligence’|
I’ve not heard of this brand before (not that surprising considering I’m such a newbie, heh) but I am really in to eyeshadow products at the moment and have had some lovely results with loose eye shadows so this was a nice surprise for me. The shade is a shimmery neutral/gold sort of colour which I couldn’t really capture in the light at the moment (Very overcast outside!) so I’ll have to swatch it once I’ve used it a bit and write up about it. It’s a 1g size, so a miniature, but as it’s a mica powder shadow a little should go a loong way so I think this is a nice sized product and I look forward to trying it. The full sized product would be 2.5g and is listed as £14.95
I really am so pleased to have got this, my fiance knows me so well! I will try using the products and then try and do some posts about them throughout the month =) A lovely, lovely start to my glossbox experience and such a fab early birthday gift!
