It’s August (already!) and this month is particularly special to Glossybox as it’s their birthday month. So this box is a Birthday Edition box. This year it’s Glossybox’s 9th birthday and they are celebrating with some fabulous, glitzy and luxury products. I love the design of this months box with the big bow it’s giving me birthday vibes! So let’s unbox and see what’s inside…
INSIDE THE BOX… 3 BEAUTY AND 2 SKINCARE
HUDA BEAUTY Demi Matte Cream LipstickWhat a fabulous brand to add to this birthday glossybox! This cream lipstick is by Huda Beauty and retails for £18. The lipstick includes a highly pigmented formula that glides smoothly onto the lips, and once applied dries down to a satin finish to create a sheen of colour that enhances the lips shape. Glossybox are giving each box 1 out of 10 colour choices which they pick for you, I received the shade SHEro. Glossybox have included in previous boxes Huda Beauty products before and it’s a real treat when they do so it’s fantastic to receive in this months box.
BRUSHWORKS HD Wonder Complexion SpongeThis is a 3 in 1 makeup sponge by the brand Brushworks. It’s a gorgeous pink shade sponge and it’s perfect for applying foundation, concealer or contour. The round side of the sponge is best used for covering large areas, the flat side for covering any imperfections and the tip for those smaller areas that need more precision. Every vanity case needs a makeup sponge so I am pleased with this item as it’s very handy. This sponge retails for £5.49.
STEVE LAURANT Vogue Lip LinerThis is a lip liner by Steve Laurant and it retails for £12.09. It’s completely waterproof and the colour doesn’t transfer or bleed throughout the day. It also claims to stay put for 7 hours so I’m very interested in testing that out for myself… it sounds like magic. Like any other lip pencil it defines your lip contour and gives you that pop of colour. This is in the shade Vogue which is a lovely nude brown. Can’t wait to give this one a go.
MOLTON BROWN Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Bath & Shower GelI love, love, love Molton Brown products and I especially love when subscription boxes include this brand. This is a deluxe mini bath & shower gel with the scent Rhubarb & Rose. I’ve had this one before and it’s divine, it smells soooo good. This gel includes a blend of Rhubarb Leaf, Rose and Grapefruit. Molton Brown bath & shower gels are always fabulous quality, they feel very luxurious and leave the skin cleansed and subtly fragranced. This bottle includes 100ml of product which is worth £7.33. I cannot wait to treat my body to this during my next showers.
GLOSSYBOX SKINCARE Eye Boost CreamA very exciting announcement if you haven’t heard already, Glossybox have introduced their very own newly-launched Glossybox Skincare Range and they have included a product from their own range in this box. This is their eye cream which retails for £20 but Glossybox subscribers can get this at a slightly cheaper price of £16. This eye cream has a formula of Elderflower, Red Seaweed Extract and Eyebright which will all help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles aswell as refresh dark circles and tired looking eyes. I adore the packaging of the pastel pink (totally what I would choose) and the product itself looks like it could be good. So i’m looking forward to trying this out.
Overall, this is a fabulous birthday edition box, it’s packed full of luxury products and includes a great variety of treats. The total worth of this box comes to £62.91. It’s really hard to pick a favourite product this month as the selection is great but I would probably go with Molton Brown Bath & Shower Gel and the Huda Beauty Demi Matte Cream Lipstick. It’s also very exciting news to hear about Glossybox launching their own skincare collection.
