Megan’s Glossy Box
We LOVE Glossy Box. It never fails to impress and amuse. Both of us love to get the fun new products every month that are tailored specifically to our profiles. This specific box is no exception and chock full of goodies!
unnamedMegan– I received Tree Hut Shea Body Butter in Coconut Lime  – Heaven.  Heaven in a petite package.  It smells like the tropics are all around.  It goes on like silk, soaks in quickly, leaves smooth skin and no residue. $6.37 Value
2015-03-24 16.20.53Pop Beauty Kajal Pen in Inky Purple (We Both Got this!) $10 value
Megan– This a a great little  liner.  It goes on well and stays, so if you get it somewhere you didn’t mean to, it isn’t going to wipe away easily.  I may have had to redo half my face this morning when I sneezed while applying and had a line from my cheek to my eye brow…Ok, I did have to.
Paige– I was so impressed with this liner. I love purple eye makeup, and I rarely find a good enough product that is subtle enough to wear every day, but purple enough to highlight my eyes nicely. Megan is right though, I needed an eye makeup remover to get this off my face at the end of the day, and my hand after a curious mishap that i still can’t figure out.

Paige swatched this way to early in the morning

Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink – (Another Item we both received ) $12.99

Megan and Paige– We admit, we were both hesitant to try this.  The color was scary. It was bubblegum pink…(See Megan’s March Boxy Charm Review)   You have to go easy with it. Lots of blending.  But, when applied correctly, it is very clean and pretty.  Just a hint of flush to make you look glow-y and healthy. It even worked as an eye shadow!
This pot will last a long long time.
unnamed1Ouidad 12 Minute Deep Treatment
Megan– My hair needs this.  Badly.  I haven’t tried it yet because it is a little labor intensive to use.  First I need to buy a shower cap and then I need to unearth my hairdryer from…. somewhere…  I hope it’s as good as it says it is. $26 value for a sample size

Orogold Cosmetics 24K Multi-vitamin Day Moisturizer – (We got a lot of the same this month)
This is a very heavy cream.  A little goes a very long way.  Both of us feel that we couldn’t use this as a day moisturizer like it says because nothing went on well on top of it, even after we let it soak.  That being said, this makes an outstanding, just-before-bed-on-a-clean-face moisturizer because it really does feel good.  (bonus, there were two of these minuscule pots in our boxes!). Value estimated at $25 per sample

Nexxus Color Assure Shampoo
Paige– I’m all for sample and full size trials of beauty products, but I would so rather have a small sample of a SET, than a full size sample of something that wont work properly when not used in conjunction with the other items in the set.
Ok, rant over, on to the review. I didn’t like this product at all after I used it. The smell was nice, but that was it. I don’t have colored hair, so, while I can always use a good deep conditioner, a shampoo for colored hair does not work for me, other than make my hair greasy, and weirdly dry at the same time. It might have worked better had it been used with the correct conditioner, but, we’ll never know. Value Estimated at about $15 for deluxe sample size

So Susan Concealer Quad-
Paige– Valued at $37.14, this little gem has everything you need to conceal all sorts of imperfections. It’s an awesome blend of four great shades to cover anything you want. Its also 100% cruelty free and not tested on animals. (A HUGE plus for me) The concealers them selves are lightweight, and super sheer, though when blended properly, can offer amazing coverage. The darker colors are also great for contouring.
All in all, these boxes were valued from $105.36 to $125.13. For a monthly payment of $21, its a great value. Even though there were one or two things we didn’t like (On Paige’s end anyways), we still both feel its worth the money. Glossy box hasn’t’ let us down yet, and we are always waiting for the next awesome treat!
