Glossybox is here! Woohoo! This box has some makeup, a tool, hair care, & a skincare product. I have swatches & mini reviews below… & I might have found my very blackest eyeshadow ever! Please enjoy my thoughts below!
Here’s the card for this month with the card info & such. I also received another card (pictured below) that offered 20% off your first purchase from Mastey with the code GLOSSYBOX. Shhhh don’t tell them I told you okay?These boxes are awesome (I’ve been storing everything from pictures to Christmas gifts in them!) along with some crinkle worms which Sawyer (our kitten) absolutely appreciates.
Let’s take a peek inside my November 2013 Glossybox!:
Emite Makeup Micronized Eye Shadow in Dams– This eyeshadow is ridiculously black! I mean, to a crazy degree! I swatched it below with the brush provided & then on my finger as well. SO black & SO pigmented! I haven’t compared my black eyeshadows in a long time…I might need to do that again soon!
Jelly Pong Pong 2 in 1 Eyeliner & Shadow Pencil– I’m a bit confused with this pencil…I have no idea what shade it is! I can’t find it on the pencil anywhere & I doubt the only shade they have is this deep green? Either way, it is really pretty & will make a lovely eyeshadow base! Love the shimmer & smoky look to it.
Mastey Color Protection Color Protecting Leave-In Oil Treatment– This is a nice big sample, 2 fl oz of oil! I don’t love the packaging of this sample, I definitely appreciate having a glass bottle with a dropper now! No big deal because this is a sample but just something to note! This smells SO good & somewhat floral.
Nicka K New York Professional Eyeshadow Brush– This is a blending eyeshadow brush from a brand I’ve never tried before, thanks Glossybox for something out of the norm! I personally like boxes that include a variety of brands I already love & new brands to check out. Anyway, this is a really lightweight brush made of “quality pony hair”. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a pong hair brush before but it is really soft but still has the perfect density to pick up eyeshadow & actually blend into the crease.
The Aloe Source Jojoba Radiance Cleansing Polish-This is a sulfate-free cleanser that is supposed to remove makeup, oil, & impurities. On top of that it has jojoba microbeads & alpha & beta hydroxy acids to exfoliate. It promises to nourish & soothe skin with aloe vera & says it is suitable for all skin types. It smells like a regular cleanser & looks like a clear gel with white micro beads in it.
Here are the swatches! On the left is the very finest line I could get next to a thicker line of the Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Eyeliner. Next to that is a quick swipe of the Emite Micronized Eyeshadow in Dams using the brush & then a swipe using my full finger. Look how black it is right?
I liked this box, definitely some fun new items to play with including some full sizes! Do you receive Glossybox? What did you get this month?
