Glossybox February 2018
For the month of February, Glossybox have created a ‘Galentines’ edition, with this month being all about having fun with your friends or partner this Valentine’s Day. I have always been a big Glossybox fan ever since I bought their very first box when they first launched and the box contained a HD Brows Palette which wowed me from the off.
Lately however I haven’t loved the more recent Glossybox edits. Glossybox always stood out to me above other under £15 beauty boxes as it always contained well known brands, with a good mixture of skincare and makeup but the last few boxes have been a little underwhelming. I know beauty boxes are extremely subjective as you cannot please everyone, but I wasn’t looking forward to receiving my Glossybox’s anymore however I have to say I think the Glossybox February 2018 edit is the best one they’ve done for a good six months.
First up within the Glossybox February 2018 edit is the Sleek MakeUP Storm i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette worth £8.99. Sleek are featured within Glossybox boxes pretty often (October, June and March boxes in the last 12 months alone) but a £8.99 palette in a £13.25 box is pretty fab. This is the Storm Palette which is one of the first palettes Sleek ever launched, back when the shadows used to have a waffle/grid effect on the pans (does anyone else remember that?!) and contains a nice mix of neutrals in mattes and shimmers. From looking at the menu card, I think the palettes might differ from box to box but I have many i-Divine Palettes and I love them.
We have another Steve Laurant product this month, after getting their eyeliner in the December box. This time it’s the Steve Laurant Nude Pop Lip Tint worth £17, a creamy lip tint with high pigmentation which glides on smoothly for a longlasting tint. The packaging is really pretty, and it looks like it could be an under eye corrector like the Becca Under Eye Brightening Concealer in terms of packaging and colour.
This is my favourite item within the Glossybox February 2018 edit; the Ciaté Beach Please Gelology Mini Paint Pot worth £6. I’ve tried endless gel effect nail polishes and none ever truly give a gel effect, but this is definitely the closest I’ve tried to a real gel cured nail polish. I tried it the minute I’d photographed it and it’s still on my nails five days later with no chips or tip wear whatsoever. Beach Please is the most stunning neon pink colour, and I’ll definitely be purchasing some more Ciaté Gelology polishes after loving this one so much.
Next up is the Skin Chemists Aqua Repair Facial Serum 30ml worth £39 which contains a delicate blend of advanced active ingredients work in tandem to infuse skin with vitamins and antioxidants, working to minimise the look of uneven skin tone and redness while delivering deep hydration with long lasting results.
The last item in the Glossybox February 2018 edit is the Studio 10 Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion worth £14 which is a multi-tasking primer, radiance crème, illuminator and highlighter in one, offering a head-to-toe skin lift. It has an ultra-nourishing cream formula with advanced ‘binding’ agents gives budge-proof, long-last wear and is enriched with advanced skincare ingredients Suberlift™, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins C & E for all-day hydrated radiant skin.
So they are the items within this month’s Glossybox. I’d love to know your thoughts? Which is your favourite item this month?
