Review of the Tis The Season’ GLOSSYBOX

DSC_4143

Yep! I’ve got another inside scoop of the GLOSSYBOX. It’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed one but with the holidays rollin’ around, I figured it would be a good idea to remind you about one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes. These boxes are hit or miss (depending on your preferences, of course) but the average beauty lover will likely get giddy over receiving a subscription as a gift. You wouldn’t hear me complaining.

Plus, GLOSSYBOX is one of the more higher-end boxes so if I were to gift a subscription to a friend, it would be this one. GLOSSYBOXes are always decked out beautifully and the GLOSSYBOX Mag provides pretty pics of trends and products.

Sooo, let’s see what we’re working with this month:

Illamasqua Lip & Eye Medium Pencil

The full size version of this pencil retails for $20 and with Illamasqua being a higher-end brand and all, we’ve already gotten our money’s worth with this pencil. Score! I’ve always been really impressed with Illa’s products and this pencil is no different. The color is called Honour and it’s a rich and chocolate-y brown. It’s definitely a product that I would use regularly.

Incoco Nail Polish Applique

Shout out to nail strips and stickers. These are so popular these days so it’s good to see GLOSSYBOX staying on trend. I’ve actually used these strips before and they are one of the better ones because they are made of actual nail polish. They retail for $8 and the 16 double-ended strips can make for a nice holiday nail look. Especially in this shade. Sinderella is a rich burgundy and it’s nothing fancy but it’s rolling with the season.

Kryolan for GLOSSYBOX

The brand Kryolan is likely more known among beauty professionals instead of everyday consumers. I’ve actually never tried any of their products but this blush in Glossy Rosewood looks like it can do some good. It seems pretty pigmented and it doubles as an eyeshadow.  Regular price of this is $9.

Nume Style Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil (full size: $59/4 oz – sample size is 10 ml)

I’m just now getting back on the argan oil train and I can’t brag about it enough. Nume’s version of this contains Vitamin E and can be used on the body and hair. Most argan oils are scent-free and this one is heavily perfume-y and unappealing to me. I spot Fragrance in the Ingredients so boo to that. Otherwise, it’s a nice and non-greasy oil. Argan oil rules!

Skin & CO ROMA Truffle Serum: Hydro-Toning Day Face Serum

This serum is supposed to help slow down the signs of aging. It has hyaluronic acid and I’m not sure if it’s pregnancy safe so I didn’t give it a whirl. However, it is fragrance-free and I think the 0.50 oz size is enough to give you users a good 3-5 uses.

Overall: Of course, you know reviewing beauty subscription boxes are tricky because everyone goes giddy over different things. You’ll never see me appreciate getting hair products whereas some love getting hair samples. I like to judge these boxes by their overall value and this month seemed to hit the mark. The samples were large enough for users to get a good amount and there’s a little something for everyone. Hate nail products? No problem…there are 2 samples of cosmetic products. Not a fan of skincare products but like nails? Bam. You got a sample. So yeah, not a bad way to end the year, GLOSSYBOX.
