Glossy Box STARTER KIT - Unboxing

Hello ladies! How are you all keeping?
At the end of March I decided to subscribe to a beauty delivery box. I have done some research and had discovered BirchBox and GlossyBox. I had to choose one of them. I decided to go with GlossyBox, as they seem to send full size products more often than BirchBox.
I decided to go along with a quarterly subscription which costed £38.25 (about €50) - all the prices are available on the GlossyBox website. Here is what I got in my STARTER BOX.

I adore the presentation of the box! It's a proper, sturdy box that can be reused at home, which is what I have already done :) In the box you get a leaflet with all the product descriptions and prices. The products are packaged in a pink tissue with a black ribbon around it. I absolutely love it!

1. Naobay Protective Hair Mask Volume Conditioner - €13.95 (£10.64)
I immediately notice this huge white tub in my box. It's a volumising hair mask / conditioner. The conditioner smells lovely - a very citrus scent. I will let you know how we get along after I finish my existing conditioner.

2. So Susan Light Diffuser - €16.85 (£14)
The next thing in the box is a highligher & bronzer duo. I have very mixed feelings about this product. First of all, it's so tiny even though it's a full size! I'm not quite sure what kind of brush I could use with this duo. The pigmentation is lacking... especially for the bronzer. The bronzer has an orange undertone, so it would not suit all skin tones. But what I do like is the highligher. It's a golden highligher that is so delicate on the skin.

3. GlossyBox Eyeshadow in Glossy Mauve - €8.55 (£7.10)
I also got a GlossyBox branded eyeshadow in a beautiful dark neutral colour. It's so difficult to define this shade - it has brown and purple undertones, it's a satin eyeshadow and as the name describes... so glossy! I love this shade. Although I have 6 eyeshadow palettes, I will definitely be using this one especially for the crease.

4. Nicka K New York 24H Waterproof Eyeliner - €4.80 (£3.99)
The next thing I found in my box is an affordable waterproof eyeliner. I got it in the shade DARK BROWN. I am not fond of brown eyeliners. However I will use this eyeliner as a browliner. It's a perfect colour for my brows and it's waterproof - ideal for the summer!

5. The Vintage Cosmetic Company Floral Slated Tweezers - €9.60 (£8)
The last thing I got in my box are tweezers. An unusual, but a useful item. I like the design on the tweezers. I have not tried them yet, but will in the near future.

That's all the products that I got in my starter box. I am happy with most of the items. To total things up, the overall value of this box is €53.75. This is more than I paid for the 3 months supply of boxes! It's amazing value for money. I can't wait to get my April box!

What do you girls think about subscription boxes? Are you subscribed to any of them?
That is all for today! Thank you for reading :)


  1. The purple eyeshadow seems to have plenty of pigment in it and the delicate shimmer is charming
