Glossy Box - October 2012!

November 2, 2012

For a Breast Cancer Awareness themed box, I did not feel this was anything special. To my knowledge, no proceeds were donated by Glossybox, nor was anything specifically in support of Breast Cancer research. 50 Glossies received a "golden ticket item" which was a piece of jewelry from the brand Bijoux Caroline Neron. I do not think that is fair to only choose 50 people. What about the other thousands that have been subscribed for months and paying $15 a month? Overall, this box wasn't anything I am too excited about.

The packaging was the same as usual, and as you can see... not overly exciting.
We received a coupon for a free shave gel with a purchase of Venus cartridges. I have received many razors from these boxes and I really don't think they should be considered a main product. This is more of a lifestyle product in my opinion. It's always nice to have a back up, but I have a personal preference and these expensive, quite gimmicky ones, aren't it. 
Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo - Full Size: 250ml ($15.79)
Sebastian Professional Trilliance Conditioner - Full Size: 250ml ($16.59)
These are both very thick but they smell great. I don't mind hair care samples but they seem to come monthly in every beauty box I receive. I look forward to trying these because they claim to add shine, which my hair definitely needs!
Well this is some seriously expensive cream! I am happy with my skincare at the moment, so this cream will probably go to my mom or another family member. I don't remember choosing anti-aging as a preference in my beauty profile. 
Modelco Flipstick Lip Duo - $38.75
This is apparently a Glossy Box exclusive product.  I have never heard of this brand but by the look of the company url, they are Australian. As you can see by the swatches below, this colour is quite brown.

I am personally not a huge fan of this colour combo. The gloss is okay but the lipstick really isn't my cup of tea. These have a fruity type scent and I think they smell great! In the video below I am wearing this lip duo if you are interested in seeing it on. 
Don't mind the terrible paint job, but for some reason I hated the look of this on my nails. In person it looked very odd in combination with my skin tone. Not sure why I disliked it so much but I will most likely pass this onto a family member as well.
And that's it! I would have preferred different lipstick & nail polish colours but oh well. I am not very pleased and I hope with this $21 change, the boxes improve. Glossybox has become very hit or miss when for the first few months it was always a hit! 
I hope things improve. What do you think? Are you subscribed to Glossybox?
