First Box Of The Year: Glossybox January 2015


This time last month I'd sort of made up my mind that I was going to cancel my Glossybox this year as the past 3-4 boxes have just not impressed me at all. There are still products from September/Octobers boxes that I haven't even opened and although it's only about £13 a month to keep the subscription going, I'd rather save the money and spend it on buying things I actually wanted to try.

That was until January's box came through my door!

Honestly? I love it. Every product I've been sent got me excited and was something I'd pick up for myself if I was out shopping but enough of the chatting and enjoy what I was sent!

What's inside?

eye pencil

Mememe Eye Line Pencil in Clay // £4
It's been such a long time since I actually wore an eye liner that wasn't the blackest of black and although I've heard good things about brown eye liners and how complimenting they can be for your eyes (especially for day time), I have to admit I'm a little dubious to make the swap. Having said that I'm so happy that Glossybox has sent me this and I'm definitely going to trial it out to see which colour I prefer more!

powder blush

Nicka K New York Powder Blush // €8.95 for 5g
Another product I've been dying to try is powder puff blushers. I know that Seventeen have their own powder puff blusher out in Boots and I've always been desperate to try it to see if it's any good but of course Glossybox seems to have read my mind again and sent me this one instead. As you can see from the picture they sent a very girly pink shade called Romantic and although it's not my usual colour, I'm hoping it doesn't come out too strong and I can still get away with wearing it with a lot of blending.

It also has a handy little mirror on the lid for on-the-go blush. How handy?


Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow Highlighter // £10 for 15g
Firstly, I love the name of the brand. Pong Pong. hehe! Secondly, this highlighter looks amazing and if I hadn't already just a few weeks ago brought a new highlighter, I'd be even more excited! Oh well. The great thing about this is it's oil free so although it will be highlighting my face, it won't be highlighting it for the wrong reasons. No one likes a shiny face!

lip balm

Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm // €5
As I've mentioned before I use so much lip balm in the Winter months because I simply cannot stand dry cracked lips. I always carry a stick with me wherever I go and this one will be a nice addition to my collection. Not only is this lip balm 100% natural ingredients but it also has a gorgeous blueberry and pomegranate scent. Yummy!


Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Face Toner // €10.70
I know in the last few Glossy boxes I moaned about how many skin products there was and how I couldn't possibly use them all so I was slightly excited to see that they'd only sent me the one skin care product this time. And that it was bright pink. Pink always wins me over.

This box has definitely saved itself for me and I think I'll be keeping my subscription for at least another month. Thank you Glossybox!
