Glossybox Feb ’14, March Sneak Peak #1, Coupon!

Well, as fate would have it, the first spoiler for March’s Glossybox came when February finally came to me. For some reason, my box decided to hang in Indiana for a while. The theme for February was ~love~, which would have made sense if we actually received our boxes anywhere CLOSE to Valentines Day. Annnyway, onto the box!

1) Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture in City of Angel Full Size – $18
This was our first spoiler for Feb. Lauren B. is actually the niece of Philip B. whose hair products show up regularly in sub-boxes so hopefully the quality stands up to her name. She is making her debut in Glossybox this month with this light blush pink polish that actually matches the box quite perfectly. Now, Lauren claims that this polish will last 14 days without chipping. That makes me want to laugh a bit, but I guess we’ll have to see!

The formula doesn’t seem too goopy or too runny and the brush seems alright tho I personally prefer a thicker brush so you don’t end up with brush strokes (especially with sheer colors).

2) Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil in Black Full Size – $15
Ah, black eyeliner. So original! I have never received nor purchased black eyeliner in my life. *eyeroll*. I also cared soo little, I didn’t even bother to retake this blurry picture.

Apparently some ladies have gotten this in their Birchboxes and said that it had good staying power so we have that going for us. I have yet to decide if I am even going to bother opening and swatching to see or if I’ll put it straight into the trade pile.

3) anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Full Size (3 patches) – $11
I think anatomicals is a great cheeky brand. The copy on the back of the box actually made me laugh out loud. I am stoked to try these eye patches out, especially after a rough night out.

They are supposed to revitalize the skin around your eyes and make your peepers look rejuvenated, vibrant, and smooth AKA erase the tequila shots you did the night before.

4) Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm Tube Full Size – $9
Other ladies were raving about this item on the forums, so I was excited to get it in my box, but my tube feels like almost 1/2 of the product is already missing! I will be sending Glossybox an email about it, but I’m not too sure what they’ll do about it.

Anyway, this UK brand is supposed to provide a hint of color and is made with 100% natural ingredients. It does smell quite nice, like cherries 🙂

5) Pureology Serious Colour Care Colour Fanatic 1fl Oz – ~$3.60
The only non-full size product in the box and one of the ones I wasn’t really looking forward to. I don’t color my hair anymore, so I don’t really have a use for a treatment spray.

Apparently it provides 21 essential benefits to prime, perfect, and protect color-treated hair. What those reasons are, who knows. This will probably end up on the trade list unless I decide to get crazy and dye my hair anytime soon.

Overall, this box has a value of over $55 for only $21! Not too shabby.

Now onto the first spoiler for March:

Some fancy pants face mask! This Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask retails for $158 full size. Like holy crap, it better be made out of gold / the tears of virgins for me to ever pay full boat for that. I am assuming our sample size will be uber small.

Also, if you haven’t signed up for Glossybox yet, use the code GBFRESH to get a deluxe size deluxe-sized Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream! Also remember to use Ebates, you’ll save $2.75! What did you think of this month’s Glossy? Have you even gotten yours yet?! xo
