May Glossybox 2013 | Happy Birthday Glossybox!


Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear pink box full of treats, happy birthday to yoooooooou!!! Glossybox is the ripe old age of 2 and looks brilliant for it. No special box this month but the tissue paper inside had the cutest little birthday print on and was tied by a neon pink bow hiding orange shredded paper, so something a little bit different. Although I do think that they should have made the whole box the same as the print of the tissue, I would have loved to have had that on my shelf. So Glossybox had a Birthday and I got the presents, sounds like a beautiful deal to me!

Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray - I couldn't believe it when I saw this in my box as my friend was only raving about an Awapuhi shampoo and conditioner duo she had picked up from her salon when we went swimming the other day so I'm extra excited to try this out. It promises shine and protection from daily wear and tear with ingredients that restore weak and damaged hair. This is a full sized product and I can see it lasting a good while.

Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Mascara - I was sold by the name Fairy Lashes and the lovely packaging. I've only ever tried one other Jelly Pong Pong product and that was a lip blush that came in another Glossybox a couple of months a go which I was pleasantly surprised by so I have high hopes for this! It's a hard wearing, water proof, thickening, volumising mascara (full size again!) I've currently got a back log of mascara I'm working my way through still from Christmas so I've added it to the queue and can't wait to get round to it.

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Prime and Create Mixing Medium - When I first saw this little pot of clear gel I had no idea what the bloody hell it was and to be honest I'm still a little bit confused how to put it into practice?! In the leaflet that came with the box it says it can be used as a primer, mixed with foundation to give an airbrushed effect, mixed with powder blushers or bronzers to make a cream tint or mixed with eyeshadow pigments to create a liquid eyeliner. I think a bit of experimentation is in order!

Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner - I'm more of an eyeliner pen girl myself but chuck anything that will create a fluid black eyeliner flick my way and I'm a happy bunny! I have used this before and the long handle makes it easy to control, the colour is pigmented and the staying power is pretty good.

Headline Colours Nail Polish in Poolside Party - I love this colour!! It's a really summery blue and Poolside Party is the perfect name for a shade like this. 

Four out of five full sized decent products and a little extra (handbag sized emery boards) the Birthday girl has done good!! 

I haven't seen what the other options were so if you have done a review on this months box leave me a comment so I can have a look! Also, the people who have been subscribed for over a year, what was the extra treat?
