For the first Glossybox of 2015 (it still feels weird typing that!) there is a really interesting mix of products from a range of brands that I’ve mostly never heard of. Bonus – every single product in the box is full size – such a generous start to the year!
The products in this month’s box are mostly makeup over skincare, and they are a nice mix of stash staples – blush, lip balm, eye liner, highlighters and a toner. The box is themed as a ‘fresh start’ so the colours are all super flattering and wearable.
Kueshi’s bottle of Pure&Clean toner is the product which caught my eye first – how couldn’t it!? The bright pink formula looks adorable, and it has a fresh, fruity scent which I’m really excited to try. I’ve only recently started using toners on a daily basis, so this will definitely come in handy!
The Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm in Superfruits couldn’t have come at a better time! As I type this, there are not unlike blizzard conditions outside, and my lips have been super dry for the past couple of weeks. The balm feels lovely to apply – very thick and nourishing, and there is quite a strong berry scent. The balm is 100% natural so if you’re trying to cut down on chemicals in the New Year, it’s definitely a brand to check out!
The Me Me Me Eye Liner pencil in Clay is a great stash staple. I tend to keep makeup bags dotted around my house/car/gym bag so I like to have a couple of good staple products to use.
The pencil has a lovely creamy formula, and the colour payoff is fab. I love the cool tone brown colour which is just perfect for more casual makeup looks.
The Nicka K New York Colorluxe Powder Blush is an absolutely adorable product. The blush is applied through an attached sponge, so this is definitely something new.
I’ve never tried a product like this before, so as you can imagine, I’ve spent quite a while perfecting my application techniques. The sponge gives a soft wash of beautiful rosy pink which is perfect if you’re looking for a bit of a Spring update.
Last but not least is Jelly Pong Pong’s All Over Glow highlighter. I’m sure I’ve used Jelly Pong Pong lip glosses etc in the past, so I was super excited to try the highlighter.
The colour doesn’t look unlike Benefit’s High Beam, as it’s a beautiful shell pink shimmer. You only need the teeniest dot of formula on either cheek to get great results. I think personally, this is more of an evening product – there is definitely a hint of sparkle so I think it would also be incredibly pretty as a sheer eye colour too!
I was super happy with this month’s box – for more info on Glossybox head here – link
