I've seen a lot of comments about beauty box blog posts recently, and how they're a waste of time as everyone posts the same things. To be honest, I agree to some degree - I'll usually only read one or two blog posts about any one box, by people who's opinions I trust. I rarely venture away from my regular beauty brands, so I find boxes like this a fun way to discover new things.
All the samples in this month's GlossyBox were quite small, but overall pretty good. Here's what I thought...
This brush is pretty small, so good for slipping in your make up bag. I've used it every day since I got it. It's soft, but firm (if that makes sense?!) and a perfectly good brush. There's not much more I can say about it!
These perfumes were all a bit heavy for me. I'm very particular about my scents - I've mentioned before that I prefer light, fruity fragrances. None of these suit me, but the packaging, colours etc are very pleasing to my eye!
This was too dark for my skin really, and I found that because it's a loose powder, I always ended up with far too much on my brush. I ended up looking like I'd been rolling around in mud. Not a great look! I'm sure it'd look lovely on someone more tanned than me!
I love this mascara and wish it was a full size! This tiny little tube came with a lovely chunky brush, which seperates your lashes beautifully. I needed a couple of coats, but I was left with full, flirty lashes. Perfect! I'm not sure I'd spend £16.90 to get the full size version though.
I've used Vichy products before, and think they're great. They give really good coverage, but I can find that with cream stick foundations, my skin can get quite greasy and shiny. I used this while I had a bit of a cold, so I had blotchy skin and a red nose, but this hid that beautifully! My skin was also quite dry though, and this foundation did highlight that.
What did you think of this month's GlossyBox?
