As every month ends, the Glossybox arrives at my doorstep, filled with surprises. This month the Glossybox was put together in the sign of “Goldrush”- don’t ask me what they mean by it, as there was nothing golden in the box, only a lotion for men, as father’s day is coming up – maybe they mean you should find an older guy to pay for all your stuff by handing him an anti-aging lotion???
The terms and conditions of the Glossybox can be found here.
Lately, there are some extras in the boxes, that technically one shouldn’t account for, but seriously, if it’s in the box, it belongs to it and counts, if you ask me. The blush above was considered an additional favor from Glossybox, just so I mentioned for completion’s sake. In March, I mentioned that Illamasqua would be a perfect fit for a Glossybox because it is still considered a niche label, and guess what, there’s an Illamasqua lipgloss in this box! I don’t have the arrogance to say that it was all my doing and fierce lobbying, but it makes me happy that maybe someone reads my blog…
First up: Water. Yes, you read right. There is a bottle of water in this box. The aluminum bottle suggests that the creators of this brand of water decided not to pick plastic because of the high costs of production and the bad influence on the environment, and forgot to think about the fact that aluminum is barely better. Next time pick glass… and make sure people recycle! Anyhow, this is Beautywater Q10, taste: grapefruit. I hate water with taste other than those: beer, wine, coffee, regular water. Sorry, but I’m picky! I had some other people take a sip and it wasn’t an instant hit with either of them. Smells appealing, tastes yucky.
BM Beauty Blusher and SpaRitual nail polish in Heliotrope. The mineral blusher comes in this tiny box, it’s a sample of course, but I’m not very good with mineral makeup that comes in tiny packaging, so I didn’t try it. The nail polish however I tried, and I like the quality, as always with SpaRituals, but it is not original size! It is a mini, and yes, SpaRitual sells minis, and they are ‘original’ MINI size. Original size means the large one. Anyhow, Heliotrope is a medium purple creme, dries fairly quick, and reacquires two coats. Made me think that someone isn’t reading my blog after all, because it’s purple. Have you ever heard me rave about a purple creme? I dare you…
Illamasqua lipgloss in Femme. I love Illamasqua nail polishes, I love their eye-products, their lipstick in ‘welt’ is my favorite lipstick ever, I own two other intense lip glosses (belladonna and I totally forgot) and I love them and wear them a lot. If you don’t have one, you need one.
Zoeva is a brand I’ve heard about; mainly that their brushes are supposed to be awesome, and now I find a eye crayon in this box. The color didn’t appeal to me at first, but it looks nice in combination with my regular eyeshadow colors (grey, blue, black, turquoise mainly). Also, it has amazing longevity and it clings to your eyes like ivy to a house wall – hence I’m giving it the grade A++++, one + for stay power, one + for surprising me, one + for the easy application and one + for a rather affordable price.
The terms & conditions are fairly simple: You have to be a public follower of my blog either through Facebook or bloglovin. You have to be a resident of the European Union (no oversea territories). You have to leave me a valid email address in the form, otherwise I can’t contact you. If you don’t respond within 48 hours, I’ll draw another winner.
Fairly simple, isn’t it? Enjoy!
The Giveaway has now ended.
The Glossybox was sent to me for review from the company for free. The SpaRitual polishes for the raffle were given to me at free disposal.
