I’ve always been intrigued by these ‘beauty boxes’ but haven’t bothered ordering one until recently. I was debating between GlossyBox and BirchBox and in the end I decided to trial a three month subscription with GlossyBox.
Also, I really love the cute pink box it came in… oh, the little things.
I received a ‘Royal Apothic Body Cream‘ in Holland Park (worth £2.79), I’ve actually never heard of this brand before, and, I have to say the packaging is beautiful, it looks quite vintage and classy. I also really like the tube packaging, it’s somewhat really satisfying squeezing the product out of this quirking looking metal tube. The fragrance is also lovely and fresh.
I then received a ‘MUA Undressed Eyeshadow Palette‘ (worth £4). I really do love all the shades in this palette, you get twelve eyeshadows – some neutral mattes to some smouldering shimmers, all wearable for day or night.
Up next we have a 15ml ‘Emite Make-up Diamond Heart Illuminating Base Primer‘ (worth £16). I’ve also never heard of this brand before, but after reading the back of the tube, I’ve noticed that they are from Stockholm in Sweden, and Swedish make-up brands are known to be pretty good. This primer claims to be lightweight and make your skin look radiant, smooth and uniformed. And, I have to agree, it does what it says on the tin.
Moving on to the ‘Eyelure, Naturalites‘ (worth £5.29). I’ve tried Eyelure in the past and I think they are a great affordable brand for those who like wearing lashes, however, I’m not a huge false eye-lash wearer (controversially I love semi-permanent individual lashes though) so I may give these to a friend.
