Hello Friday & on FridaysPackaging idorottka loves unboxing ;) Well at least for the past week or so lol. Today I'm coming to you with another pretty amazing Glossybox. I know, I know, I'm pretty shocked too. I'm so impressed that I even did a little (& super easy makeup look using two makeup bits from this month's box). Let's dig in, shall we?
As per usual, very neatly packaged box, light pink with black Glossybox logo. Inside you'll find 4 full size and 1 luxury size samples. It's a mixture of great skincare and makeup so I'm sure a lot of you will find a gem or two inside. Don't forget to utilise your box for storage or decoration, and keep the black bow - you can use it as fashion accessory or if you're a cat lady - a cat toy. My Coco just loves it ;)
Unami Dermo Defense Face Mask (full size - RPR £11.36)
This isn't my first experience with the brand, as I already received a aloe gel in one of the Birchboxes. I haven't tried it yet, as I'd like to keep it for summertime as an after sun treatment. I love the idea behind the brand. It's an organic, natural skincare family business, based in Spain. Their ideology is great and I'm looking forward to trying this mask. It promises to deeply nourish and hydrate and it's perfect for dry & sensitive skin. Hello that's me right? I promise to report more when I'm done testing :)
Madara Cellular Repair Serum (luxury sample - full size RPR £38.00)
I haven't heard of this brand before and I'm always excited to discover luxury skincare brands so I'm very keen to give this one a go. There's never enough serums right? Magical duo of bio-complex and birch juice (superfood for skin) promises to revitalise by cell repair for a plump skin, that's hydrated and radiant. Sounds good to me :)
Teeez Cosmetics Oasis Gem Lipstick in Coral Onyx (full size - RPR £11.93)
I haven't heard of these lipsticks before but I appreciate colourful packaging. I myself prefer my lipsticks in a more classic packaging but hey ho. It swatches well and it looks very pigmented but you need few coats on the lip. Satin finish with an add on of coconut oil for extra hydration for the lip. It has a very creamy formula but it doesn't last anywhere close to 8 hrs as it suggests on the packaging. It didn't survive breakfast for me. Lasting power 1-2 hours, disappears if you eat. Maybe longer if not, but I haven't had a chance to test it hungry lol. Shade isn't truly my cup of tea but it's not bad either. I like it, but it's not my fave, if that makes any sense ;)
Glossybox Single Eyeshadow in Glossy Mauve (full size - RPR £7.10)
I really like this shade, colour wise. It's a beautiful muted purple taupe. Perfect for an easy, daytime smokey look. It has a satin finish and good pigmentation. It's quite easy to blend but it does disappear a little when blended so adding colour few times is a must. Great all over shade - I really like it for it's colour. Lasting power is ok, it didn't crease on a Maybelline Color Tattoo base for good 8 hrs. It did lighten after few hours being less and less pigmented. It does happen with medium quality shadows. I still like it though to use as a simple, all over shade in the morning.
Angele Paris Red Nail Laquer (full size - RPR £6.32)
Classic bright red. It has good pigmentation and two coats is all you need to a nice opaque finish. I won't be using it as I'm all for shellac nails at the moment but I'm sure I can find it a new loving home.
As promised here's the little daytime look I created using both Glossybox eyeshadow and lipstick. please excuse my horribly dry lips. I have been battling them for more than a week now and nothing seems to be helping. I hope you enjoy the look and like January Glossybox as much as I do :)
Thank you for reading,
