April Glossy Box Review

Wow! This month’s box is a work of art!

What a fun box top this month with the comic character like makeup girl.  And a surprise treat? There was a little bag inside this month.  Very cute, sturdy, and a welcome treat from a box that we already love the packaging on.

We love it!

 The makeup bag was cute and came with a mystery discount code that I haven’t tried yet, but its always nice to get discounts

Julep Gel Eye Glider-Smokey Taupe

 Paige- I don’t wear a lot of eyeliner, so samples are a good size for me, but, if I get the odd full size, in a good color, I’m happy. This one happens to be a nice color, and a good eyeliner in general, actually. It smudged easily, but didn’t move once I was finished. I’m very impressed.

Megan- This is a great color. Goes on really nicely.  Be careful that you get it where you want and nowhere else because it isn’t budging once it is down.  Put it in a fun thick cat eye and heavy lashes with bare or bone colored (non shimmer) lids and be prepared for a fun night.

Lip Tar Stained Gloss in Meta

Paige- Oh My Gosh, did this color ever intimidate me. I have seen this brand in stores and have stayed away because I thought “No Way will colors like those look good on me, they are way to saturated” Was I ever shocked, then, to try this out and find that its actually quite lovely!

One coat was sheer enough to be great for regular daytime use, and two coats were perfect for a brighter lip. It goes on glossy and is not tar like at all. It feels super, and looks awesome. Definitely will be using this this summer

Megan- Lip Tar Stained a gloss in Meta: no joke, the color scared me in the box. It looks almost like a neon raspberry.  The fun of lip tar (besides it staying for a long time) is that you can layer it so that you don’t have to have full impact of the color immediately.  The barely there brush gave my lips a nice color that works with anything and is almost matte immediately but doesn’t look like your lips are dry.  A second, heavy layer gives you a sheen of slick color that is fun without being overwhelming.  Good for heading out after work or to a summer picnic in a flirty dress.  A third coat was a bit scary.  I’d save it for Halloween or someone with a bolder, more golfer skin tone than me.

Este Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Paige- I am more concerned with faint wrinkles at this point than dark spot correction, so this did not really interest me, but I’ll take a sample of this brand any time. I have always liked Este Lauder, and this really is no exception, but I might pass this onto my Mom or Mother in Law and see if they can use it.

Megan- Well, it fells nice going on, soaks in fast and cleanly, no residue at all.  The little bottle is a gorgeous blue, but it is one of those that you sort of tap the product out, there is no was to squeeze or pump it out and I can tell you that it gets old trying to get it out, even when it was brand new. I can’t imagine that I’ll have the patience to try once it is down to half a bottle or less.  Hope the full size is better designed.

Aerin Waterlilly Sun Eau De Parfume Spray

Paige- This packaging was so pretty! I like getting perfume bottles, as opposed to vials, so this was nice. The scent is kind of a different story. I’m getting over a cold, so I either cant smell anything or I smell EVERYTHING. This hit me as being very “Fumey” lots of alcohol in this product, and the smell lingers… Once it drifted off and had been on my skin for a while though, the scent is pretty nice, a little strong, but nice.

Megan- Well, this was the disappointment of the box.  The packaging was so cute and it was a lot of spray to get in a sample but the alcohol scent when sprayed is so strong and dissipates so slowly that there is no way I will ever wear it.  That is sad because once you let the alcohol scent go away (no joke it was at least fifteen minutes before I could smell my wrist without recoiling) the scent is actually fun.  A little heavy but there are nights out when heady is a good thing 😉

 Marakesh Endz Split End Mender and Preventer

Paige- Anything with Argan Oils is a must try for me, and this is no exception. It made my hair really soft and I instantly noticed a slight difference. Im sure with regular use, it will show a great improvement

Megan- Granted I don’t really have split ends to worry about (one of the perks of not using heat tools or a blow dryer on my hair, basically ever), but this smelled really nice.  Not overpowering and left my hair feeling very nice.  Did nothing for my extreme flyaways but not much does…

We love that Glossy Box always takes into account your coloring and I have have yet to receive a bad color choice from them.

This box continues to be awesome.  We look forward to it every month!
