Glossybox September 2016

For once in my life I was home when my Glossybox came! YAY! I didn’t get my hands on the August Glossybox for like a week after the postman dropped the red slip of doom through my letter box.

So here is the brightly coloured September Glossybox and what’s inside:

Glossybox September 2016

Glossybox September 2016 amazing grace

Philosophy amazing grace firming body emulsion.

First the worst and all that. It’s a posh body lotion, basically. Smells a bit like baby powder and is hugely over priced.

I hate body lotions. HATE THEM. It’s supposed to leave skin silky, smooth, and nourished. Yes, exactly the same as every other body lotion. BORE.

I’m pretty sure you were all expecting this reaction.


Glossybox September 2016 revlon colorstay gel envy

Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat

I wrote top goat by mistake. LOL. Top goat would probs be more fun. This is a posh bottle and at first, I thought it was black nail varnish. It’s actually something you put over your nail colour to give it a shiny, gel nail effect.

I don’t really have an opinion on this. I don’t know if I’ll use it.


Glossybox September 2016 rodial Glossybox September 2016 rodial eyeliner

Rodial Smokey Eye Pen

YAY eyeliners! I love eyeliners and always use them so I’m glad I’ve got this. As soon as my current eyeliner dries out, I’ll be using this one.

It’s a super-rich, highly pigmented and blendable eyeliner that can be used for a neat line or be smudged for a smokey look.


Glossybox September 2016 vitamasques hydro face mask

Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask

This is one of those weird masks that are tissuey/cloth. You put them on your face and they have holes in for your eyes.

I’ve tried one before and it was uncomfortable and I kept feeling like it might fall off my face. Boo.

This one can keep your skin moisturised and hydrated for up to 120 hours.


Glossybox September 2016 too face better than sex

Too Faced Better Than Sex

I’ve always wanted to try this! I’m well impressed this was in my box. I love mascaras in boxes as mascara is something I always use, so I know I’ll get used out of this! Not like stupid body lotion.

I’ve heard so many good things about this but always refused to buy it because I was disappointed with the Benefit They’re Real mascara and didn’t want to waste my money.

Now I can test it and seeee! This is only a sample size but it’s a pretty decent size.


Glossybox September 2016

I have no idea why this was in my Glossybox. It’s a sample of a face mask from the Body Shop. I might use it, might now. I spent my whole life intending to use a face mask but I never do. Because I’m just too messy and never manage to get it all over. Every time I leave clumps on my chin and in my hair lines. IDIOT.

This is the end of my Glossybox posts. Please tell me your thoughts.

  1. Glossybox used to be more exciting. I don’t see the point in sending samples that you can get from the shop anyway. Also, how many body lotions one might need. Anyway, I would like to try that strange mask.:))

  2. That’s a pretty good box, Corinne and I like it because it has pretty good brands in it. One tip, if you feel like the sheet mask is sliding off your face then use it laying down. You can continue to check your iPhone that way or just take a nap. 😉

  3. I kind of like the idea of the gel polish because it means you can use your favorite polish and make it have the gel effect. The eyeliner is always welcome, and I’ve also wanted to try the Too Faced better than sex mascara. I agree with you on the body lotion, I never use them. And sheet masks are weird, lol

  4. I get excited with face masks – even though I usually just collect them and use one once a month, lol. Same with lotions. I hate them. Not excited about them at all.

  5. It’s great to be home when packages arrive in the mail. I used to think sheet masks were uncomfortable when I first started using them but now that I’m used to them, I can’t get enough of them. 120 hours of hydration is pretty impressive.

  6. I don’t think I’d be very happy if this box arrived on my doorstep and I was paying for it. Seems like a lot of sample size products. Not really worth the money? The eyeliner and mascara seem good though, although I would probably never get round to using them. I would definitely use the top coat though as I love doing my nails!

  7. In a way I really want this box and in a way I really do not. When I saw that it was a Red collaboration I though it would be great and it is, sort of. There are many product inside that I would not use, but the eye pen is really great. I was actually scheduling a post about it the other day and I am wearing it as I am writing this comment 🙂 The first time I tried the product I was skeptical, but I love it a lot. Hope you enjoy at least some of the product. Honestly, I have no idea what has been going on with GlossyBox, but it seems that they are not as good as they used to be

  8. Ah man, was looking forward to hearing your opinion on the Revlon Gel Nail top coat. I’m intrigued to see how well it works.

  9. Do you think overall your Glossybox has been as per your profile requirements? I have never heard anyone say that it actually appears to be packaged according to your profile and always wondered…
