Glossybox for November 2012 featuring Illamasqua, Kryolan, & More!

So normally I love to do a video open box for my GLOSSYBOX supscription but that just isn't happening. I am so sick guys. Seriously. No one wants to see this. I'm still working hard to bring you the best in beauty but there is no way you want to see me on camera. A blog post only will simply have to do!

I know some people weren't thrilled with this GLOSSYBOX & while I don't think it was the best I certainly didn't think it was a bad box. With 2 makeup items, one nail item, one hair item, & one skin product I thought it was decently rounded out. One of the products alone nearly paid for the box.

Here's the Glossybox Magazine that comes with every box. Always in color, beautiful, & a nice read.

Illamasqua Lip & Eye Medium Pencil in Honour: This pencil is a not too soft not too hard medium-dark brown. I realize this isn't something I will be rocking on my lips but I HIGHLY appreciate them letting me know I can. When looking through my stash for Halloween tutorials & dramatic looks it was hard to find a liner that was super dramatic yet still lip safe.  This is a full size & retails for $20 so it nearly paid for the $21 box itself. This is creamy & blendable but doesn't blend away. Looks nice on my eyes!

INCOCO Nail Polish Applique Strips in Sinderella: I love nail strips & these are a welcomed addition to my stash. These are meant to be used on bare nails & contain both a base & top coat. This is kind of a cranberry red looking shade but nice & bright. I might bring these with me on vacation!

Kryolan for Glossybox Blusher in Gloss Rosewood: I know I read & saw some complaints about this blush but I personally like it. It is supposed to apply lightly & indeed it does. It looks healthy & it is easy to apply. It says cream powder formulation but I'm really not feeling that.

Nume Style Arganics by NuMe Argan Oil: This really doesn't feel or smell like argan oil, great for those looking for an oil without the strong smell or the oil feel. This feels almost sticky or stringy at first which had me super hesitant to put it on my hair. It smells like a shampoo kind of? Not that strong Argan scent I was expecting at all. Once applied, it soaked into my hair, nothing stick about it.

Skin & Co Roma Truffle Serum: This is a Hydro-Toning Daytime Face Serum which is meant to "slow down the signs of aging" & contains lots of good-for-your-skin ingredients. This is clear & sinks in. It is like a gel but definitely soaks in to the point where I can't even see I have applied it. I definitely detect a scent...but sadly being sick I can't tell you what that scent is. Sorry :(

Here are swatches of the Illamasqua Lip & Eye Pencil & the Kryolan  for Glossybox Blusher in Glossy Rosewood.

Overall, I liked this box. This didn't blow my mind but these are products I was happy to try. The blush is a nice size, I think it is an easy shade to wear too. Perfect for travel. I really like the Illamasqua Lip & Eye pencil too. Nail Polish Strips always make me happy!
