September 2014 Glossybox…

For those who don’t know Glossybox is a monthly subscription for high end  beauty Products. It’s 21.00 a month. And you get 5-6 products in each box. These are products that are found around the world. I’ll show you what I got in my September box and if you wish to sign up too I’ll post a link at the end.

The digital director for Harper’s BAZAAR, Joyann King, worked with Glossybox for this month’s box. This box is based off of some of her favorite products…

The swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

Here’s what I got in this month’s box…

First we got an Essie polish in the shade Madison Ave-Hue. Okay, anyone who knows me knows I don’t like wearing pink. Soooooo…… I’ll probably set this aside for a friend or when my nieces come over. Cause I won’t use it at all… This retails for $8.50.

This next product is another I don’t like. I tried it out couple times, after getting it in my Ipsy bag, but I don’t like the way it makes my lashes look. I don’t like the way it wears, applies and yeah, I just don’t like it at all. This is not my go to product. The product is…

It’s Benifit They’re Real Mascara. So yeah, this is going into my giveaway pile for friends… This retails for $23.00 full size.

Well, I guess I don’t have much love for this box cause the next product I’m giving away too. That’s cause I can’t stand the smell of it. Whenever I get something from this brand I always give it away cause I really don’t like the scent of it.

It’s Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au the Blanc Conditioner… So yeah, this retails for $45.00 full size. So yeah I wouldn’t buy this product anyways being that high priced. I can get something that smells good for a lot cheaper…

This next brand is alright, I haven’t tried much from them. So I’m eager to try this product out.

Vichy Liftactiv Night Cream. This is supposed to help reduce fine lines and improve skin tone. We’ll see how it goes. Though, I probably won’t purchase full size cause I don’t want to spend that much for a night cream. It’s $50.00 full size…

I think this next product is the only one I’m somewhat happy with. Though, I wouldn’t have chosen this shade, cause orange tones do not look good on me. But I’ll try to darken it up with a lip liner or something.

OCC Metallic Lip Tar in the shade Authentic. This color is very orange based. It’s pretty but I’ve next looked good in this color. I’ll give it a try and see how it looks but I’m pretty sure I won’t pick it up very often… this retails for $18.00 full size…

So that’s it for this month’s box. Granted I wasn’t too happy with a lot of the products, I’ll see what they send out next month. I know we’re getting a nail polish I just hope it’s not pink again. So yeah, I’ll admit I haven’t been too happy with the products I’ve been getting from this box. I’m thinking if I keep getting boxes I’m not happy with I’m just gonna cancel. I’ll wait till after the end of the year to decide. So they have 3 boxes to try and keep me from canceling. We’ll see what happens…
