GLOSSYBOX does it again, folks. If you read my post on the Mother’s Day limited edition GLOSSYBOX, you’ll know that I was prettttty impressed with what they had to offer, and while it was a limited edition box, my hopes were still high that the May box would be great, too. It was! To be fair, the second I saw there was a deluxe sample of Glamglow in it, I was the happiest girl ever and it didn’t even matter what else was in the box, but once I got over that, I was pretty excited about everything else too.
First up in my GLOSSYBOX this month is this Doucce Lipstick in shade 907. This is the product in the box that I feel most conflicted about, because there are things I like and dislike about it. Let’s start with dislikes- it doesn’t smell good. It smells like what I remember my mom’s lipstick smelling like back in the early nineties when I’d steal her lipsticks and basically draw all over my face with them, and let’s just say I think the scent has come a long way. It also doesn’t glide onto the lips very well. Those two things being said, once you’ve got it on your lips, it feels quite comfortable. Not really drying OR hydrating, just kind of is there doing it’s lipstick thing. It’s like a matte with a hint of shine, but not a glossy shine… if that makes any sense, haha. The shade is quite nice, though is more of something I’d wear in fall. I really like it on my skin tone, but I think I’ll be saving it for when summer is over. This lipstick retails for $20.
Next is the Clearista (for some reason I really like the sound of that name) Retexturizing Gel. This gel claims to “not only smooth skin and refine pores, but also reduces pigmentation and skin imperfections, including rough skin bumps and rough, dry patches.” I say yes please to all of the above, so we’ll see how this goes! The full size retails for $79.99.
I have like less than half a bottle of hairspray left, so this Sebastian Professional Stylbrid 9 hairspray came at a great time. It’s paraben and alcohol free, so I’m loving the sound of it already! It also offers UV protection with is a huge plus for me. I feel like I’ll go through this bottle pretty quickly, although it is a decent size. The full size retails for $19.96.
The Teeez Trend Cosmetics Head Over Heels Nail Lacquer gets an A++++ for packaging. I LOVE the bold floral print! I wish that carried over to the actual polish itself, but oh well. Not totally sure how I feel about this color yet (I need to actually try it to decide), but I think it could be a fun summery nude-ish polish of sorts. It promises a super smooth application and glossy texture- two of my most favorite things in a polish- so it’s sounding pretty good thus far! This polish retails for $14.
I definitely saved the best for last! I basically wanted to jump for joy when I saw that a deluxe sample of Glamglow Powermud was included. I “splurged” on my birthday, and by splurged I mean I coughed up the $19 for the tiny size of the Glamglow Thirstymud because I wanted to try a Glamglow product soooo bad. It’s a slippery slope though, because I fell in love and have since bought a full size of the Youthmud. This was another one I was dying to try, but didn’t want to drop more money on at the moment, so I’m SOOO excited about this being in my GLOSSYBOX! This just made the whole box more than worth it for me. I can’t wait to try this! The full size of this retails for $69.
Overall, I loved this box- but mostly because of the Glamglow. While I’m a bit iffy on the lipstick and maybe the polish, I am excited to try both the hairspray and retexturizing gel, so this box was pretty much a win for me!
