Glossybox Beauty Box February 2012

Hello lovelies, 

The February Glossybox* seems to have come around so fast this month! It doesnt seem like 2 minutes ago since we had the special Valentines ones! I must admit i did have a sneaky look at other blog posts on this months Glossybox and there seems to be quite a bit of variation product wise. I also must admit that i am more than thrilled with the items i have in my box, both product and colour wise. Sometimes a product can be amazing but not your colour so to have products that you like and a colour you know you will wear and get use out of makes it so much more appeal-able to yourself.  
Im sure you all know by now but Glossybox is the original UK Beauty Box where you receive 5 deluxe samples per month housed in a gorgeous box and packaged beautifully for £10 a month plus £2.95 shipping. You have no obligation to carry on your subscription and can cancel at any time. 

As i have said millions of times and im sure you are sick of reading i am not the biggest lover of lipgloss! Hand me a lipstick any day! However having said that...I have heard a lot of good things about the Duwop Venom lip gloss before and its tingling sensation so im excited to try. This is a gorgeous pale shade with slight golden shimmer in a small 5ml sample that is so cute! The shade i have is 'buttercup'. Full size 10.4ml Venom Gloss retails for £16.
♥ Impress Press On Manicure - Rock It ♥
False press on nails are more than definitely a winner in my book! I absolutely love them! I have horrible natural nails and most of the time you will see me sporting the Nailene 200 nails. I love trying new brands and Impress are a new product by the Broadway Nails brand which i have heard of and used before. I have seen other colour variations in this months box such as black and red but i was so super happy when i saw that i had the natural french! These look gorgeous and the packaging is lovely! As the nail Press On Manicure suggests they do not come with glue and already have adhesive on them so im really looking forward to seeing how these hold up. A pack of these nails would cost £8.99.
♥ Awapuhi By Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger Treatment ♥
Again after reading reviews i saw that people had received a hair treatment for curl hair so im glad that i didnt receive that as i love straight, sleek hair. As well, I didnt realise this was actually by Paul Mitchell, a hair care brand that i have actually heard of. This is a pretty hefty 25ml sample of a styling treatment oil that is supposed to leave a soft, silky texture to the hair. Full size 100ml would set you back £25.95. 
BM Beauty Pure Mineral Eyeshadow
I have actually used a couple of products from the BM Beauty range before, a make up brand co-owned by Kimberley from the Pussycat Dolls that is cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Again, I have seen this Eyeshadow come in many different colours, some near black that i know i wouldnt have got use out of so i was pleased to see a neutral in the form of 'dusty road' which is a gorgeous shimmery gold. It is a hefty 1g pigment sample which i am sure will last a while as most loose eyeshadows do. Full size 2g would cost £7.
Como Shambhala Invigorate Shower Gel
A Como Shambhala product has been in the Glossyboxes before in the form of a body cream i do believe. This is the invigorate Shower Gel that has a blend of essential oils that help uplift mood. It has a really zesty scent to it which i actually really do like and the small sample size is perfect for trips away so you arent lugging a full size shower gel with you. This is a 50ml sample with 300ml costing £20.00.
Overall, even though this months box looks a little empty if you have a good look at the products it is actually a pretty decent box this month and i am really impressed! I think it had a good mix of make up, nails, hair and shower products which is always good and does emphasize more on make up this month which is always a winner for me! The star for me hands down has to be the impress nails which look lovely! It may only have one full size product but the other samples such as the Venom Lipgloss, Awapuhi Styling Treatment Oil & the BM Beauty Eyeshadow are really deluxe sized products!

What products did you receive in this months box? I would love you to share!

  1. I didn't recieve any full size products which I thought was a bit unfair. I don't think it's right that some people did and some didn't. Even if it wasn't the same product we should have all recieved one. Anyway rant over haha! I cancelled my subscription after this box and am not going to try to the Carmine box!

    1. I think that GlossyBox is all about getting samples not necessarily full sized products, it is a sample box after all, and that's what we signed up for. it's a bonus when the team throw us a full sized product into the box, but for me it's all about trying new products and discovering brands, not how big the products are.

      Much Love,
