the first uk glossybox!

As I'm sure a few of you already know, the GlossyBox has been the new hot topic among beauty bloggers lately. Most of us have been really excited about the opportunity but a fair few have been slightly sceptical about the whole thing and backed out of signing up, but they've really missed out on this month's fab box! But don't worry, I've heard that next months box will be equally exciting.

All boxes will also be sent out by tracked delivery, meaning that they will arrive separate to your normal post. If you ever have any problems with your package the GlossyBox team are super helpful on twitter, or you can just pop them an email.


Initially the box comes in a standard cardboard package with GlossyBox printed on the side and a pattern of their logo. Inside that box is a lovely little pink box with your products for the month wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with a ribbon, I am beyond impressed with the packaging, the smallest of detail has clearly been well thought out to make it feel like a mini birthday each month. I'm definitely going to keep the pink boxes to store make up in, or to even use as gift boxes!


As you can see there are some great products in the box, including a full size Nars Orgasm Illuminator, happy days! I'm also completely in love with the All for Eve (by Daniel Sandler) lippie too - it reminds me of Lady Danger by Mac. I will probably do mini reviews of everything in the blog post of next months GlossyBox overview.

Which brings me onto my little video..

  3. I was undecided whether or not to sign up to this thing, and I changed my mind. Now I am kinda gutted that I didn't just apply anyway. Fab products in this box indeed.
