It's the Valentine's one.. Glossybox February 2013

It was quite the surprise when the Glossy man came a knockin’ on Saturday morning, I wasn’t expecting Feb’s box yet, but then I remembered, it’s the Valentine’s box. Isn’t the box stunning?

Unfortunately it’s style over substance in this month’s “Will you be ours box?”

Docteur Renaud Raspberry Soft Cream 30ml (£25 for a 50ml)
I tried this morning and it smells lovely – a very, very strongly scented raspberry. It has made my skin super soft and provided a great base for my make up, we’ll see how it lasts throughout the day.

Lipstick by Helen É Cosmetics in Cafe au Lait Full Size £8
I was really happy to see a lipstick, a full size one no less! The only thing I don’t like about this lipstick is the shade! As you know I love a nude, but this leans more to the brown end of the spectrum... it’s a bit 90s if you know what I mean (more pics at the end of this post). Other than that the texture is nice – rich and moisturising and it’s very pigmented.

ModelCo Eyeshadow Duo sample, Full Size trio £18
This one’s a winner. A cute eyeshadow duo with two very wearable shade, in fact I’m wearing it today. I love the brown, it’s very flattering, the other shade is somewhere between cream and champagne and it’s quite sparkly.

Micabella Cosmetics Mineral Blush Powder small sample, Full size 9g - £34.95
These miniscule pots are one of my biggest bug bears. They’re impossible to use – too small to fit a brush and if you try tapping some products out it goes everywhere and you get too much!

Anatomicals You Need A Blooming Shower Full Size £5 300ml
A full size shower gel always comes in handy. It’s cute and smells lovely.

Mixed feelings from me on this month’s box (as always). I was really happy to see more make up items, but the eye shadows are the only one I’ll likely wear. The face cream could be the saving grace, time will tell.

If I don’t get chance before hand, Happy Valentine’s Day ladies.


  1. Aww sad to hear the box is style over substance! Seems that happens to Glossybox a lot. Always getting too carried away with packaging, not enough time spent on products...

    But good to hear you like the Model Co's palette! It's so small - so cute! xx

  2. Sorry to hear that you were a little disappointed with your box. I got quite different things from you. Have a look:
    Perhaps change your Glossybox account settings so you only get the things you want?

  3. I love the colour of the eyeshadows! Its a shame you didn't get all products you'd make use out of though x


Thank you for your comment, I really appreciate it. I read all of them and reply to any questions x
