UNBOXING: Glossybox May 2015*

by - May 22, 2015

** Product was provided for review.

I swear, you guys, the middle of the month is officially my favorite because I am a full stop subscription junkie. I don't know who started it, but whoever thought of beauty subscription services is pretty much a business genius in my mind. Anyway, today I have this month's Glossybox for you guys... and I've gotta say, I'm pretty damn excited about it! I heard the mailman shoving it into our mailbox the other day when I got home from work and I pretty much did one of those slow motion leaps over the couch to get to the door - just because I knew there was a box waiting for me there. And, really, I'm only slightly exaggerating the over-the-couch maneuvering.

Anyway, keep reading for a closer look at this month's box. Seriously. It's worth it!

Sebastian Stylbrid 9 Multi-Benefit Hairspray - 1.55oz Sample -  Value $4.99
From heat protection to adding volume and texture, this new multi-benefit hairspray from Sebastian packs a punch. Paraben and alcohol free, the lightweight styler and treatment hybrid offers curl definition, UV protection, and enhances natural shine.

I've tried some Sebastian products in the past and I've had really good experiences, so that combined with the description - which sounds over-the-top awesome for my needs - has me really eager to try this out. I have a good feeling about it. It's actually really hard for me to find an aerosol hairspray that I like, so I'm crossing my fingers!

Teeez Head Over Heels Nail Lacquer in Cadmium Rush - Full Size - Value $14
We get a spring in our step from the Dutch beauty brand's adorably packaged nail lacquer. Promising a super smooth application and glossy texture, it boasts at least three days of staying power.

First and foremost... How cute is this packaging? The bottle itself is pretty much exactly the same as a Julep polish, but the details are just over the top and adorable. From the pretty floral design of the box to the branding on the bottle and lid, this is just the cutest. This shade, which I would describe as a burnt peach type of shade, is incredibly unique and completely unlike anything I have in my collection. I'm actually really excited about this polish.

Doucce Mineral Matt Lipstick - Full Size - Value $20
The New York-based color brand introduces this uniquely textured, soft touch lipstick, which leaves behind a rich, velvet matte finish. Infused with SPF 10 and vitamin E, the pretty pink shade will keep lips hydrated all day, and won't feather or fade away.

You guys. This is BY FAR the best thing in this box according to me. The shade is absolutely perfect. It's a hair darker than a typical your lips but better shade on me, but it has that gorgeous mauve tone that I just love in a lip color. When you apply it, it feels a little bit dry and can tug a little bit if your lips are dry, but I find that it is still comfortable and doesn't look dry on the lips at all. It also wears insanely well on me. I'm not even joking, you guys, this might be my new favorite lipstick. I'm going to be wearing this constantly. Also, just because it's my thing, the packaging on this is gorgeous and unique. Glossybox just made my lipstick life.

GLAMGLOW POWERMUD Dual Cleanse Treatment - 0.5oz Sample - Value $21.00
POWERMUD's innovative "mud to oil" delivery system promises powerful, gentle skin detoxification and renewal. Designed for all skin types, this hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested treatment features a custom four-clay blend alongside purifying cleansers and exfoliants for super clean, super velvety skin.

I was quite excited to get this sample because I wanted to try more of the GLAMGLOW masks. As you might recall from my empties, the TINGLEFOLIATE mask didn't really twirl my beanie, but I wasn't about to give up on the brand. I haven't tried this one out yet, but I have a feeling I'll be sitting down with a cup of tea, a book, and this mask on Sunday night to wind down and get ready for the week - so we'll see how it goes! Great sample, though. Very exciting.

Clearista Retexturizing Gel - 0.5oz Sample - Value $10
This unique complexion-perfecting gel not only smooths skin and refines pores, but also reduces pigmentation and skin imperfections, including rough skin bumps and rough, dry patches.

Yes, please. If this performs the way that it claims to, I'd even consider investing in the full size. If you read this blog regularly, you know that uneven texture on my skin is one of my consistent issues, so I'm constantly on the lookout for a product that will really attack that problem. I'm crossing my fingers and really looking forward to trying this!

I'm sure you guys can all see why I'm so insanely excited about this month's box, right? So good! Can't wait to dig into these products! My favorite, clearly, is the lipstick - which I'm already a little obsessed with - but again I feel like this is a box filled with products that I'll actually use. Always a win!
