OK! Y’all know I am a HUGE FAN of GlossyBox – they are probably my favorite surprise beauty subscription box out there right now. They have literally the best value for your dollar, and I know your dollar is just as hard earned as mine, so I wanna make sure I get the most for it. So recently I got an email talking about the Limited Edition Mother’s Day GlossyBox – it’s separate of their monthly boxes, and is LOADED – literally LOADED – with amazing products for a one time price of $40. It’s a deal that can’t be beat. So when I got my box in the mail the other day, I wanted to share with you guys (in case you aren’t convinced yet about how AMAZING GlossyBox is!) and show you all my great Mother’s Day swag!
So like all my other unboxings, I’ll show the product, my thoughts, the price and the box total so far. Prepare to wish you had snagged one of these before they sold out (but I have a surprise for you at the end!)
I know I’ve said it before, but I just love the level of packaging that gets put into each box, but I really love this pretty box with the ombre roses! I love all of their “non traditional” boxes!
Let me first start off by saying that EVERYTHING in this Limited Edition Box was FULL SIZED! One of the benefits of grabbing the LE boxes!
Laura Geller Inkcredible Gel Eyeliner Pencil in Brown Eyed Girl – $20
I am a HUGE fan of gel eyeliners and this one by Laura Geller is no exception. It’s SUPER pigmented, waterproof, smudgeproof and lasts ALL DAY. I love the dark warm brown with flecks of gold micro glitter. It’s gorgeous and so creamy! I’ve heard such great things about Laura Geller and now I finally own one of the products!
SO PRETTY! AHH!
Total Value of the Box so far – $20
Vince Camuto Bella Rollerball – $22
I have a deluxe sample of Vince Camuto Amore from a previous GlossyBox and I love it! So I was very excited to get this rollerball of Bella because I have heard a lot of good things. This is his newest scent and it’s soft and floral with spicy citrus notes. It’s really clean smelling – I actually have some lotion that smells slightly similar and it’s one of my favorite things to use because it just smells SO GOOD. It’s a great scent for spring!
Total Value of the Box so far – $42
Bodyography Cream Shadow in Glimmer – $20
The downside of this shadow was that it was super messy when I opened it – really, it was everywhere! But despite that fact, the color payoff of this shadow is INSANE Y’ALL. Seriously, I mean it. It’s this gorgeous cream shadow with beautiful metallic shimmer.
See what I mean! It’s so amazing! It’s so soft and buttery and so pretty and despite the fact that it made a huge mess, I just cleaned it up and loved it instead.
Total Value of the Box so far – $62
OroGold Cosmetics 24K Bionic Complex Thermal Mask – $298
Yeah, you read that right. $298. I don’t think I own anything beauty or fashion related that costs $298. I never needed to! But this, oh this, this is just pure luxury. It’s so stupid fancy and it makes me feel pretty when I use it. Apply it to your face with a bit of water and active the instant heating action – which is SUPER cool btw – and massage into skin. I leave mine on for about 10 minutes, then remove with a warm wash cloth.
It’s made with real 24K gold and actually came with a certificate of authenticity! For a face mask! Did I mention how crazy stupid luxurious this is?
It’s just so fancy – it makes me feel really nice and I could imagine it would make ANY mama feel super special!
Total Value of the Box so far – $360
Fusion Beauty LipFusion Infatuation in Pucker Up – $29
Spoiler Alert – I have thin tiny bird lips. So anything that isn’t the #KylieJennerLipChallenge that will give them a bit of “oomph” is OK by me in my book! I’ve got a lot of different lip plumpers, but most are clear or lightly colored glosses. This is almost like a liquid lipstick with how much pigment you get in a swipe.
It’s a gorgeous berry color, and so creamy – though sticky like a gloss, I love the high impact shine and intense color. I don’t ever really notice a HUGE amount of plumping with plumping glosses, but maybe that is just me. Even if I get no plumping out of this, it’s a pretty color, so I won’t complain.
Total Value of the Box so far – $389
Vichy ProEVEN Daily Dark Spot Corrector – $45
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed the little dark spots on my face, getting darker and staying around longer. A unfortunate side effect of getting more awesome, sadly. I’ve tried cheaper products before, samples in other boxes and natural remedies to no avail. So I am excited to try this and report back my findings as I use it this month. I can say, that the smell is really nice, light and floral but not over powering. The packaging is a aluminum tube which is helpful when trying to get out the last drop of an expensive cream. The bottle is 1 oz, but you only need a tiny bit, twice daily and if I’m perfectly honest, I might forget to do it twice daily – but I am working on my current skin care routine (now that I have some better stuff) and trying to get my skin back to being normal and clear all the time.
Total Value of the Box – $434!
Um, insane!? YES! Worth it? YES!!!! This box cost me only $40, and I got $434 worth of beauty products! That’s like 10x the investmest! This is the first Limited Edition box I’ve snagged from GlossyBox and I will DEFINITELY be grabbing them in the future! This box was FILLED with amazing stuff! 6 FULL SIZED LUXURY products! Nothing in this box was cheap, or a sample, or anything I won’t use! I cannot wait to do some makeup looks with these new products – especially the shadow! Which I think is my favorite thing in the box – I mean the mask YES! Amazing and it’s great and feels so fantastic, but getting to try the shadow, I now have a new company to check out!
That’s one of my favorite things about trying these boxes, learning about new and amazing companies I’ve never heard of before. Anyway… sadly, this box is SOLD OUT – so if you’re interested in getting one I have a surprise for you… GlossyBox is GIVING ONE AWAY on their Instagram account! Details below!
