I actually just received my glossy box on the 4th so to exactly February but since I was a new subscriber ill give them a break on that. Glossy box is $21 a month and each month you will get 5 products to your door. I have been dying to try glossy box for a while now and when they had a coupon for a Bella Pierre lipstick in your first box. the coupon code now is GBFRESH and it is for a deluxe size Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream. Now I know most of you have already read the glossy box reviews but since I haven’t seen anyone else who didn’t get the eye patches i decided to do my review.
I never understood all the hype about the packaging until my box arrived. It really is so cute and makes the box feel even more amazing.
I would have been more excited for this if i hadn’t gotten a similar shade in my tipsy bag this month. This formula is almost white on, it really needs a little more pink. It also came out a little streaky and has chipped a little on the ends in only two days.Since it launched in this box i will go with the listed price of $18. More then i would pay but since the whole box was $21 I am happy with it.
I have been wanting to try this brand for the longest time so I was super excited to get it in my glossy box. it is hard to find because it is based out of the UK. The color was long lasting and went on really smooth. It was kind of waxy but i prefer my glosses like that so i was happy. The only thing I didn’t love was the smell. It wasn’t strong or unpleasant it just smelled almost like red Kool-aid. I would still buy these again, in fact i plan on trying more scents. Either way $9 is not a bad price for this gloss.
I know most people were complaining about getting another black eyeliner but I was actually really pleased, in fact this is the spoiler that made me sign up for glossy box because i was almost out of my current black eyeliner and I haven’t been very pleased with it. I was really impressed with this eyeliner it lasted all day and even through the gym without smearing. I can not even tell you how amazing that is. So if anyone needs a black eyeliner i would recommend this. It is listed for $11 on Birchbox so i will use that retail value.
I don’t know why i have never thought about a mattifying gel before, I live in Florida it should be my best friend. It says that it should last for 8 hours but i haven’t really been able to check that yet since i either got rained on went to the gym everyday i wore it. I will say that until then it did keep me nice and matte. I was even less shiny after the gym so i will give it a tentative seal of approval pending further wear. I am glad I got in the box because it is $30 even on amazon.
This was the only non full sized product in the box. It is supposed to protect color treated hair and since i do color my hair I don’t mind trying it. It didn’t leave my hair oily or weight it down but it did leave my hair silky.I don’t like its very floral scent but to be fair i don’t tend to like floral scents. This has a retail value around $3.58.
This lipstick is listed on Amazon for $9 but it is listed on their website for $20. This was my signup gift and since Bella Pierre is a new brand for me I was excited. I received the shade catwalk which is a lovely peachy color. The packaging is adorable and the lipstick smells like vanilla. I personally loved this. It is a great color, so cute and it smells amazing. I will certainly buy more.
This box had a retail value of over $80 even using the price I found online! I can not believe the value of this box for only $21. Everyone should sign up for this box I am in love. If you decide to sign up email me and ill send you my referral link, I would so appreciate it.
My ipsy bag finally arrived this morning, I was starting to think it would never come. The ipsy bag this month was a very plain pink bag but the inside is an adorable Cheetah print.
Here is a picture of the inside of the bag. I wish this was on the outside it is so cute.
I was a little worried about this since i have very sensitive skin and a lot of people had said it burned. I left mine on for the full 10 minutes and it only had a slight warming feeling when I first put it on. It did leave my skin a little softer but I wouldn’t say it had a huge effect. Maybe one use is just not enough to judge by. I easily could have gotten two uses out of this but i shared with my grandmother instead.
I know everyone was really upset to get eyelashes this month but I knew I was bound to get them eventually. I never really wear fake eyelashes but I will keep this for Halloween or something similar.
I had really hoped to get this in any color but purple and of course I got purple. I did wear this today and it stayed on and didn’t crease which was nice. It also had a very build able coverage so if you are like me and were intimidated by purple eyeshadow you can wear it very light or darker if you prefer.
I was really excited to get this. I love lip gloss. I got the Fuchsia Freesia which may be intimidating to some but i loved the bright color. Unfortunatly it smelled like gasoline, it was awful. I contacted Ipsy and they are sending a replacement. It seems that there was a bad batch this month that got sent out. Aside from that it is a great size to throw in your purse and the color last so long I would think its a lip stain, not gloss.
I have not had a chance to try Zoya polish before so i was super excited for this. I just painted my nails with a new julep polish so i will have to wait to give a better review of this.
I love ipsy. It is only $10 a month so even if i don’t love a product the value is still great. I don’t see me canceling ipsy anytime soon. Here is my referral link http://www.ipsy.com/r/1ku1
I know my review is a little late but I just got my box today. This is my first box so it came a little later then most. This month Birchbox teamed up with us weekly. This is the cute Usweekly outer box.
I personally have never tried this brand of tea before but they have some very unique flavors. One of the teas I got had a Vanilla grapefruit flavor.
This stuff is super expensive; the full size is $75! It smells great but i cant quite put my nose on the exact smell, almost like vanilla sugar cookies. It did leave my skin a little sticky which I am not a fan of. I haven’t really been using it long enough to see any result though but it did leave my skin feeling moisturized.
I love the smell of this, it smells like coconut and i love it. It also left my hair soft and not super oily after I blow dried it.
I love how tiny this little OPI nail polish is. I didn’t know they even made trial sizes. The picture makes this look black but it is actually purple. While I love OPI i don’t know how much i love this product. I tend to like the color I paint my nails so why would I want to change it with a tinted topcoat? It may be great for an ombre effect though.
I really liked the smell of this but I honestly have no idea how to describe its scent. Its a bit of citrus and floral but in a way that works. While i never love getting perfume samples I do like this scent. It also stays on all day, I sprayed it this morning and can still smell it.
This was my very first birchbox and the sample sizes are much smaller than ipsy’s. The only reason I signed up for birchbox was its reward system, you essentially get $5 in rewards every month if you review the items in your box which makes birchbox well worth the $10 a month.

I love how the splendies come wrapped in tissue paper, it’s like opening a present.
I love these. They look very nautical which I love. Perfect for summer plus they are super silky. I love how soft and comfortable they are. My favorite pair yet.
These are a little more racy then I’m used to. They were also a little tight even after I went up a size this month.
I really loved the print but the lace around the legs sticks out a bit which I am not a fan of. I am hoping that goes away after they get washed.
I personally love splendies and at $12 a month I think they have a great value. All of the underwear I have received have been a great quality. I suggest sizing up when thinking about ordering. Trust me on this I also thought that i would be fine in my normal size and I was wrong. I really liked the underwear I received this month but i wish I had gotten some of the cute Valentines themed ones I had saw in other peoples bags.
I have really been thinking about adding Julep to my subscription list but now that they got rid of their skip option I haven’t been able to commit, so I decided to order their mystery box. I ended up paying $ 28 total (shipping). I went with the make up lovers box in case I did not like the nail polish quality since I have never order from julep before.
These are the nail colors I got in my box. I have to say I love them. The one on the far right will be great for 4th of July. The coral color in the middle is great and perfect for the warm Florida weather all year round. The last color was the one I knew about and I still love it.
My eye make up is constantly running because of the 98% humidity in Florida all the time so i am super excited for this in my box.
I usually love mascara and can never get enough of it but this one arrived all dried up. I emailed them and will let you know what they say.
The scent is not my favorite but it also doesn’t bother me. I ask really like the twist bottom, i don;t tend to squeeze too much out.
The colors are a nice neutral color and will be great for travelling since I already use the Urban Decay naked pallete and these just do not have the same effect. They just do not seem to be great on the pigmenting.
While I may not have loved loved everything in my box I am overall very happy with it and I would pay $28 for the things that I do love. I also am addicted to getting subscription boxes, if i go too long without getting one I will sign up for another. I should have a birch box and glossy box coming soon.
These were my favorite item in the box. They look very granny panty here but on they are adorable and super flattering. I am looking for where I can buy more of these
I normally love betsey Johnso but the fit on these was just not right for me. They were however super super cute and if i had a smaller chest I am sure I would love them.
These were cute. I did not love them as much as the other pair but they are perfect for valentines day.
I am not sure exactly how i feel about this box. In honesty the only thing from this box I really want is the QT intimates panties. The best part about Wantable is you can always return the box if you do not like it which takes the gamble out of subscription boxes. . Wantable is $36 a month. If you decide to sign up here is my link https://www.wantable.com/invite/RLct66BA0r8 I would greatly appreciate it.
So apparently if i go too long without getting a box in the mail I will start signing up for new ones. Graze box is only $6 every time it comes and you can change how many weeks pass between boxes. It also gives you the option to trash snacks you didn’t like. If you sign up through my link you will get your first and fifth box free. Heres my referral link https://www.graze.com/us/p/SIERRA19U
There fruit seemed nice and fresh and i love pumpkin seeds.
The summer berry flapjacks were so good I ate them as soon as i opened them up. The mango Chutney came with black pepper dippers that had just too much pepper for me. To be fair i am not a big fa of pepper.
