Glossybox January 2015

Glossybox January 2015PIN IT

The January 2015 Glossybox is an interesting one – it isn’t their best, but it is a very good selection of mostly make-up (which I personally prefer) and everything included is full-sized, making the Glossybox January 2015 box a great start to the year!

Glossybox January 2015 Contents ReviewPIN IT

Predictably, it’s a “Fresh Start” box to coincide with the typical January ethos.  The Glossybox January 2015 contents include some brands we all know alongside some new introductions, so I think people will generally be happy with this month’s box.  In order of my favourites, here’s a look at the contents:

Glossybox January 2015 Nicka K New YorkPIN IT

First up is the Nicka K New York Colorluxe Powder Blush, which, as you can see, is a blusher pot with a built-in applicator, much like the Seventeen Cheek Stamps we got early last year.  The reason this blusher is my favourite in the box is because the colour is great – Romantic; strong pop of red-leaning pink – and there’s no shimmer, making this as convenient as a cream blusher, but in powder form.

Glossybox January 2015 Naked LipsPIN IT

The Naked Lips Organic Lip Balm in Superfruits quickly jumped higher in my list of favourites from this box due to the yummy scent and flavour.  Normally anything berry flavoured can be overly sickly or quite synthetic tasking, but this balm is 100% natural and packed full of oils, whilst being very tasty.

Glossybox January 2015 KueshiPIN IT

The only true skincare item in this box is the Kueshi Natural & Pleasant Cosmetics Revitalizing Face Toner, which apparently rebalances and moisturises the skin.  Not everyone agrees on the necessity of toners, but I’m personally someone who loves them, so I will definitely give this one a go, even if it does look a little like nail polish remover…

Glossybox January 2015 MeMeMePIN IT

The MeMeMe Eye Line Pencil in Clay is perfectly timed with its arrival as I’m really enjoying tightlining my upper lash line again, and this is apparently a great water-liner.  It’s also in a very flattering, deep brown shade, so this will be put to good use shortly.

Glossybox January 2015 Jelly Pong PongPIN IT

Normally I have a reason for listing a product last, but actually the Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow is another product that I’m looking forward to trying, and the only reason it’s last on the list is because I’m marginally more excited about the other products.  This is highlighter that sheens rather than shimmers, making it a great choice for more grown-up/daytime highlighting.  It’s very close to my skin tone in colour – or at least that’s how it appears in my swatch – so I’m not sure how this will work at adding light, but it should add sheen, so it’ll be interesting!

Glossybox January 2015 Hello FreshPIN IT

There we have it – one of the very few times that I will be almost certainly using every product in the box.  As I said, everything is full-sized and I think everything is very usable/wearable so I hope most people will be happy with their selection, plus it’ll be interesting to see what the variations are like in other boxes.  In keeping with the January theme, they’ve also included a £25 voucher for Hello Fresh, a service that gives you a recipe and ingredients to cook healthy meals – which I will definitely consider giving a go!  For more info on Glossybox, head here – link.

    Tried the blush now. Love love love the applicator but the colour is a little too red for me- I have roseacea and spend my life covering red cheeks! Xx

      It is very red isn’t it? I’m quite charmed by the idea of weather-flushed cheeks! xx

    Do try the Hello Fresh service! I got a similar gift card in my November LoveLula box, and ordered a Hello Fresh box for two (three day meals), and it was a plenty of food for three, even! The only ingredients you need at home are salt and pepper and the recipes are so simple with thorough instructions!

    Super impressed with the eye pencil. Didn’t budge even on me- loved the shade too. X

      I’ve only swatched it on my hand but it felt very creamy and easy so I’m hoping it’ll work for the upper lash line. Glad to hear it’s good! xx

    I hated the lip balm, that was my only complaint 🙁 I think it will just go in the bin.. xx
