I was so excited when this month's Glossybox arrived at my door, partly because I didn't expect it to arrive as early as it did, and partly because I knew it was a special edition box and couldn't wait to find out what was inside! I definitely wasn't disappointed. When you open the outer packaging you find a new GB mag, which is a great little glossy magazine. Underneath that is the special edition Union Jack box, which is absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait to find a use for it. The best part is after opening it I realise I love amd will use all 5 products this month, 4 of which are full sized products! Wow!
The first product to catch my eye was the Eylure Pre Glued Eyelashes. I have never ever tried false eyelashes before but always wanted to. These ones aren't too over the top, just plain, so maybe they will give me the push I need to try them out. :)
They are £5.06 for a set.
Next up was the Toni and Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Classic Shine and Gloss Serum. Bit of a mouthful there but looks like a great product. I have never used a serum in my hair before and was so keen to try it that I have. It's great! My hair honestly felt like I had just had it done at a salon and I kept finding myself running my fingers through my hair because it just felt so nice. Really pleased with this product.
30ml of this product costs £7.19 and this is the size we received.
I think this may be my favourite product in the box this month. It is a little sample of the Elizabeth Arden Un told perfume. It smells amazing, my first thoughts were that it reminds me of my Gucci Guilty perfume but that might just be me. I really like how this is like a miniature of the full size rather than just a little vial. I'm totally in love with this and seriously considering buying the full size.
We were given a 5ml sample and the 50ml bottle costs £48.
The next product that I was excited to see was the HD Brows Blusher. This is a brand I have heard a lot about but haven't yet tried any of their products, so I was excited to give them a shot. The colour of the blusher is quite a deep pink and looks so nice on, it's not too much. It really feels like a high quality product, and so it should at £17.95.
So last but not least I got the Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Onyx Eyeliner. I wasn't overly excited at first by this as I have a lot of eyeliners, but when I opened it up all that changed....it's a felt tip style eyeliner. Yey! Yet another thing I have never tried!! This costs $14.
So overall this box had me super excited to the point I think I may have annoyed everyone around me by going on and on about it! I love all the products this month and can't wait to try them all out!
