I have been subscribing to Glossybox for about 18 months and it is really hit and miss. They are definitely sending out less "high end" brands than they used to. I have complained frequently about this to them and always give very candid feedback.
This month I got: Miners lipstick - in a very icky 80s frosted shade MeMeMe mascara - which will do for a spare Anatomicals shower gel - smells of roses, not really my thing but will do for emergencies Sassoon hair stuff - which I can't use on my hair as it contains sodium and I have a Brazilian blow dry Micabella - eyeshadow in a bronze/ brownish shade which looks ick in the (very tiny) pot but is actually ok.
So, this month's box didn't light my fire.
My tip with GB is to religiously fill in the questionnaires each month and build up glossy dots. I've had 2 "free" boxes so far from glossydots. I'll pay for next months and will get the next one free as I'll have enough dots. Will probably cancel after that.
Oh, and I notice that the beauty bloggers ALWAYS get the better boxes.
I['ve quit all the beauty boxes since I realised that their definition of "luxury brand" quite frequently means "some old tat you get covered in dust in the old lady section of a high street chemist". And in miniscule quantities at that.
Micabella - Mineral Powder Blush in Siera suede Voulez-Vous - Warming Body Oil MeMeMe - FatCat Mascara in Ultra Black Helen E - Moisturising Lipstick in Caribbean Narciso Rodriguez Perfume sample - For Her L'eau
Bit mixed about most of this...
The blusher I haven't tried properly yet, but had a quick go and it goes on nicely and is also a nice peachy shade.
The mascara - Don't like it at all, it seems like really hard work to get it on? Like it applies fairly thinly and i like thickish mascaras.
The lipstick feels REALLY nice on, but not in my colour.
