I was subscribed to Glossy Box for a year and loved it. I think it was one of the best things I have ever done but I had to cancel my subscription due to my bank account not being able to handle the amount I was spending on subscription boxes!
It’s been a year since I cancelled my subscription and I thought it might be a good idea to write a blog post on products I received, that I still use and love. I went through all my old blog posts where I reviewed the box and worked out which products I still use.
Much to my surprise, there are only 2 things!
In September 2015 – the very first Glossy Box I received actually – I was sent a Marsk Eyeshadow Brush Pro. It is a very basic eye shadow brush and actually, I use it quite a lot. I find that it’s really good for adding concealer to the eyes when you do a cut crease and that is what I still tend to use it for. It is very simple looking but I can imagine a collection of these brushes would actually look quite nice on my dressing table. The brush hair is a little firm, but that’s what makes it really good for cut creases.
In March 2016, I received a Luxie Rose Gold Large Angled Face Brush. I absolutely love this brush. I’m not sure what it is actually meant to be used for, but I like to use it for contouring. I find that it applies product so nicely and it also very pretty to look at. I use it to contour because it has that angled shape. It fits neatly in the hollows of my cheeks and it’s a really good sturdy brush to use.
Whilst there were only 2 things in all 12 boxes (I think its roughly 60 products in the year) that I still actually use, there were a few other things that I used until it finished (or I lost it) and just didn’t get round to repurchasing.
It’s safe to say that if I was thinking about subscribing again to a beauty box, I would not go for Glossy Box again!
Until next time!
