May GlossyBox


I don't know about you guys, but when I first discovered Birchbox, I became addicted to beauty box subscriptions. I signed up for all kinds of different boxes. Unfortunately, some of the boxes that I REALLY wanted were only available in the UK. 

That is until GlossyBox finally became available in the US! They released their first round of boxes in April, but there were a very limited number available and the only way to get one was to WIN it. :( I didn't win, but that's okay, I eventually got my May box. And I very recently received (and will review) my June box. 

The difference between Birchbox and GlossyBox is probably the cost, and maybe the size of the samples. Birchbox is $10 per month and GlossyBox is $21 per month, both no shipping. GlossyBox's samples seem to be quite large, sometimes full size! I honestly think it is worth the extra money, for sure. 

Even the packaging is higher quality with the GlossyBox!

All my goodies!

Bonus blush brush - Made from goat's hair
 This seems to be a nice brush, but I never wear blush so I haven't really gotten much use out of it. *shrug*

Burberry Beauty - Lip Mist Natural Sheer Lipstick Copper No. 202 (Full Size - $30)
I was very excited about this lipstick! Look at the pretty packaging! Plus the color is very neutral and not too bright or dark. I've worn this several times and I love the way it feels on my lips. I don't know that I'll purchase the full size, but I'm so glad to have gotten this. I feel fancy!

Pretty details on the lipstick
I had to do some editing on this photo so you could see the pretty details. I almost didn't want to use it for fear of messing that part up!

Zoya - Rory (Full Size - $8)
Ummm.... squeeeeeeee! Nail polish?!!!! They know the way to my heart. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of the girly girly pink, but I'll survive. I painted my toes with this and thought it was very pretty. The formula was lovely, as to be expected from Zoya.

PHYTO - Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Mask for Dry Hair (Full Size - $38)
I was very impressed with this mask. After using it, my hair definitely felt extraaaaa soft! :) You don't have to use much for it to work well.

Amore Pacific - Moisture Bound Refreshing Hydra-Gel (Full Size - $100)
I wish I would have taken a picture of the inside of this little tub. The contents look like a creamy gel. I love it, but I've been needing a slightly heavier moisturizer recently so I haven't used it much. I will not repurchase it because I'm not willing to spend $100 on a moisturizer. Priorities, people. Priorities!!!

Marvis - Whitening Mint Toothpaste (Full Size - $7.50)
 TOOTHPASTE?!!!!!! Yes please. I loved this stuff. The taste was a bit different from the Colgate that I usually use, but its still minty & good.

What do you think about the GlossyBox? I love it! I will try my hardest to get the review for the June box up within the next day or two (plus the last two Birchboxes!).
