So today I thought I’d share with you my unboxing of the Galetine’s Box – That’s right I meant to say Galentine’s not Valentines, It’s a time where we celebrate our amazing friendships with our Gal’s… I’m very thankful for mine and if you’re reading this you know who you are.
Anywaaaaaay back to Glossybox, this is my second box since I started my subscription and I was pretty excited to see what was inside. I have a love hate relationship with surprises but with something like this it can’t go that wrong, right?? As soon as my box was delivered I ripped off the packaging to reveal a bright pink box with a pretty patterned lid, a little different to the standard Pink box but pretty all the same.
One thing I love about Glossybox is their attention to detail, I mean seriously everything is SO thought out. From the box itself which is such good quality to the way the contents inside are presented… the ribbon holding everything together inside the boxes is such a nice finish.
Now for the bit you actually came here to read, what did I get? If you’re anything like me you’re kinda nosey and want to get down to business, none of the ‘fluff’ about packaging etc. (I had to mention it though as it’s soooo pretty) anyway back on topic.
Item one is a printed card telling you about the products that could be in your box and some beauty news. I love these kind of things because not only do they tell you a little about the Glossybox of the month they also tell you how much everything costs.
Icono Milano – EMOTION ALLOWED mascara – £15 RRP
This is probably the perfectly titled product for me what with being emotional 99% of the time. It promises to give volume that lasts whilst being smudge, water and humidity resistant. It’s also another item to add to your cruelty free list.
Sleek – I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette – (STORM) – £8.99 RRP
I have wanted to try Sleek products for so so long but have never taken the plunge, I’m super excited to try this palette out as it has a range of 12 beautiful colours inside. I have already swatched them and can see that they are SO pigmented, I can’t wait for an occasion to put them to good use.
STEVE LAURANT – Nude Pop Lip Tint – £17 RRP
The packaging alone on this lip tint is stunning, I’m a stickler for anything Rose Gold and this had me at the packaging… Unfortunately this one isn’t in my shade as I’m not a Pinky/ Peach kinda gal however it’s said to be longlasting, hydrating and yet another to add to the cruelty free list!
STUDIO 10 – Makeup Mist Glow-Plexion – (MINI) – £14 RRP
Never before had I heard of this brand, but a product that can act as a primer and a setting spray definitely has my interest and if it works then perfect! It would be great to have one less product when travelling.
CIATE LONDON – Gelology – (MINI RED) – £6 RRP
Hands down one of my all-time favourite nail polish brands, I once had an advent calendar full of Ciate London polishes and glitters and I was literally in my element. So when I opened my Glossybox to reveal a Ciate London mini I was so excited, Glossybox you have done well! I can’t wait to try this one from the Gelology range and see just how well it lasts. I really love the colour of this polish and it applies really well, the only thing you have to do is apply it quite quickly as it is fast drying.
So those are the contents, what did I think of the Glossybox Galentine’s edition? I’d be lying if I said that I wasn’t pleased with all of the products that arrived as there was such a variety in them. I’m literally thinking about whether I should have a pamper night right now because Galentine’s is all about the Gals (including me) and so you’ve gotta treat yo’self! I love that for only £10 (plus P&P) you get such a range of products from different brands. Out of the two boxes I’ve received so far not one product is similar or by the same brand, which is why I signed up to a subscription box in the first place.
