Glossybox - August 3rd Birthday Edition
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
I was recently given the opportunity to review Glossybox, one of the more well known beauty subscription boxes and I eagerly accepted because I had heard generally good things about the service. My first Glossybox happens to be a special box, in celebration of their 3rd birthday, Glossybox included a special Kryolan for Glossybox highlighter in all boxes and the theme was #eyesnightout. Let's see what other things I received!
The color is a dark navy, so the blue effect on your lashes is very subtle. I could see a flicker of blue on the corner of my eyes, but I don't think anyone else viewing your makeup will notice. I liked that this mascara didn't smudge or go anywhere and gave great volume, but it didn't enhance any curl very much. I do have some really stick straight lashes though, so those with longer lashes may notice a bigger difference.
This was the one product that I didn't like, but I suspect that it was because the cap on the one I received didn't click close all the way and that it was somewhat dried out by the time I used it. The cap was really hard to snap to a close. It's very black and pigmented but it skipped a lot as I used it; it was time consuming to get both eyes even.
I really liked this highlighter! It's a superfine pearly champagne color, in an emollient cream formula. It may look like a very small pot but trust me, a little goes a long way. A few small dabs creates a nice glow without huge shimmer particles or frosty skin. On oily skin, I would be really careful because overuse definitely can look slick. I liked to use it under finishing powder, it gave a subtle glow without feeling oily or too sparkly. Too bad this is an exclusive item! I like it much more than other comparable liquid/cream highlighters (like the ones I reviewed here).
Correction! Every box will contain the Kryolan Highlighter and the Eyeko Skinny Mini Liner, as well as OTHER products, these are just sneak previews. The mascara is a GWP with your first box order - use "MAGIC" at checkout.
