Glossy Box | February 2015





 
This month's Glossybox was al based round the theme of love, what with it being the month that contains Valentine's day and all...
 
As you may or may not know, I received a three month Glossy Box subscription from the boy for Christmas, and this, the second box of the year, was such a treat! If you read my blog regularly then you may know that for a couple of months last year, I sort of fell out with Glossy Box in the sense that I found the products that I was receiving tended to be quite repetitive and not really designed to my taste. For this reason I ended my subscription. However, 2015 seems to have kick started the Glossy Box company as January's box (a review of which you can read here) and February's box seem to have hit the nail on the head in terms of practicality and quality of products.
 
So, what was inside...
 
Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk - Full Size | £9.99 | Link
got2be All Star 10 in 1 Styling | £4.07 for full size | Link
So Susan Rose Quartet Lip & Cheek Pallet in Warm Pink | £8 full size | Link
Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow Fifty Shades - Full Size | £14.49 | Link
Royal Apothic Tinties - Full Size | $14 | Link
 
 Everything in this months box seemed to be designed around the idea of love and Valentine's Day, from the fifty shades of grey inspired eye shadow to the quad of pink-y lip and cheek stains. It is as though everything in this box is there to aid you in getting ready for a date nigh,t from prep to make up application, all boxes are ticked. I was really happy to receive the Wilkinson Sword razor as I actually needed to buy a new one. This new design to supposed to keep your pins nicely hydrated for up to two hours after shaving due to the built-in shea butter, which is perfect in preparation of a night out or a date night. I am really exited to use the 10-in-1 go2be styling product before a night out as it claims that it will make your hair shinier, stronger, thicker, smother, more supple, frizz-free, heat and humidity proof as well as holding it in place and creating volume, everything you could want for your hair before a romantic date night.
 
The remaining three products are all make up based, again with the theme to create a romantic date night-look. I have a So Susan concealer quartet that is brilliantly pigmented and of very high quality and so I am expecting only good things about this miniature lip and cheek pallet. It is the perfect way to tie your make up together by matching the lips and the cheeks and so this red-y/pink-y quartet will create a lovely romantic look. A smokey eye compliments a red lip when looking for a sultry date-night appearance and so this slightly shimmery natural and highly pigmented mineral eye shadow by Marsk in the shade Fifty Shades will create a fantastic smokey eye along side a flick of liquid liner. It is also recommended that it should be applied with a wet brush for a deeper more intense look. The last item in February's box of love is a full size Royal Apothic Tinties which is soft coral-y pink in colour and contains shea butter plus argan, grape seed and almond oil all of which will keep your lips highly nourished and completely kissable.
 
 
What are your key go to products when you are getting ready for a date night?
