This month I’m reviewing another Glossybox. It’s the September edition and Glossybox have teamed up with Red magazine to bring you this special red boxed edition.
It’s always a good day when your Glossybox arrives in the post. I love opening up the neatly tied package and seeing what’s inside. This month didn’t disappoint.
Who dosnt love to try new make up? This month I’ve got to try the Rodial Smoky Eye Pen which is full size and retails at £17. I love the crayon gel like texture which makes it not only a great kohl eyeliner but it can be smudged with a brush and worked with to create that perfect smoky eye.
Next up is a full size GOSH Long Lasting Lip Marker which is quite literally a marker pen for your lips. It’s a lip stain which I love as the colour is long lasting and you can pop a gloss over the top. A really great handbag addition and no sticky texture to clog the lid up. This retails at £8.50.
I’m really excited about trying the Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. The reviews have been amazing. The brush is hour glass shape and the formula is fuelled with collagen which has been proven to thicken, lengthen and boost lash volume. I’ve not tried it yet as I have lash extensions so I don’t wear mascara anymore. When I go out I do put it on my lower lashes and this sample is a handy travel size so I’ve popped it in my toiletry bag and it’s coming on holiday with me next week so I’m looking forward to trying it. It costs £19 and you can shop it direct at debenhams.
Yet another full size product is the Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat by Region. Again I already have gel nails so this isn’t something I will use but if you don’t have gel and you paint your own nails, I can see why this is a must have. At £7.99 you can coat your favourite manicure with this tough lacquer which dosnt just give them a perfect shine but creates a chip proof, long lasting finish.
At the moment Korean beauty is the newest craze to hit the beauty industry with their innovative products and treatments so I was rather excited to try the VITAMASQUES Hydro Face Mask which is inspired by Korean technology.
This amazing mask packs up to 120 hours of moisture into your skin. How awesome is that? These HydroGel masks are tipped for the big time due to their ability to hold so much more moisture in than other types of masks.
This mask comes in two parts and admittedly I wiggled it around for a munute until I got it in the right place (I think I’ll do better next time) but once it was on it felt lovely. After 30 minutes you can peel it off and work the remaining product into the skin. No mess, no washing off! Bonus!
