After many months of disappointment with Glymm they finally redeemed themselves with March's box. This month there were 2 full size products, 2 exclusive samples, a coupon for a free full size lip gloss, and 2 extra products. One of the extra products was my replacement Vasanti that had arrived empty a few months ago.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS/Hydrafull Gloss
Sample Value: 1ml/$12.27
Full Size: 2.2ml/$27
On the Card: Get your lips softer and fuller! Drench them with multi-dimensional pigments that release high shine and color. It stays put without the sticky residue. This rich and fortifying formula nourishes your lips with the added benefits of Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and Anastasia's exclusive Balkan Botanical Infusion. Pucker up beauties!
My Thoughts: The sample of this gloss is so freaking cute! I was really excited to see another Anastasia product in this month's box because I LOVE the Clear Brow Gel that they sent a few months ago. I got the color MOI which is a really nice rose color. This gloss isn't sticky at all and is almost unscented. What I really like about this gloss is the applicator. I don't have any lip glosses with an applicator like this one. It is shaped like a spatula and is made of what feels like rubber. I really like it because it applies the gloss but doesn't pick up any of the lipstick that I already had on my lips.
Sample Value: 5ml/$6.33
Full Size: 30ml/$38
On the Card: This silky formula blends beautifully into your skin to conceal uneven skin tone for a light, matte, natural looking finish. It smoothes away the appearance of wrinkles, enlarged pores and imperfections to reveal a sun kissed, healthy looking skin tone. It's magical.
My Thoughts: My first impression of this product was that it was way too dark for me. I filled out on my beauty profile that I have very fair skin so I didn't understand why they would send me a face product that was so dark. However, upon trying this product on my hand I found that it blended in almost perfectly with my skin tone. It leaves my skin looking like I have a slight tan. I think that if I mix this product with some moisturizer it will sheer out to give enough coverage without making me look orange. This product smells amazing and the whipped consistency is so easy to work with.
NU-ME/Feather Hair Extensions
Sample Value: 3/$25
Full Size: 3/$25
On the Card: Get professional-grade DIY feather extensions instantly! A beauty trend that definitely STANDS OUT. Colored hair trends have been prevalent on the hottest Spring 2012 runways. NuMe extensions are 100% cruelty free, synthetically crafted from real human hair and ready for heat styling. Don't be shy, flaunt that feather!
My Thoughts: So excited to get these in my box!! I have been thinking lately about getting some feather hair extensions for just a pop of color in my hair. I love that I am getting to try such a great brand and that they are able to be styled like the rest of my hair. The blue color is going to look really good with my dark brown hair.
Sample Value: 15ml/$12
Full Size: 15ml/$12
On the Card: A true trend-topper, Ocean Nail Polish Spring 2012 collection boasts shades that are vibrant, pastel and intense. This luscious lacquer applies super smoothly and streak free, and is fast drying without containing any toxins. It's sold in upscale salons around the USA and Europe.
My Thoughts: I love getting nail polish in subscription boxes. I am always getting new brands I've never tried and colors I wouldn't normally buy for myself. This month I got a really pretty red shimmery color from the brand Ocean. I like this polish because it is a wearable red and in the right light also looks coral. I haven't used this polish yet or even heard of this brand but as soon as I do I will right a blog post about the quality of it.
Replacement Product - VASANTI BrightenUp Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
I received a replacement because a few month's ago the original one I received was empty upon arrival.
Bonus Product - COUP ECLAT Instant Facial Energizer
I am assuming that we got this extra product instead of the jelly beans this month. It reminds me of the Lise Watier product we received a few month's ago. I really liked the Lise Watier one so I am assuming I will like this one. I also really hope that they continue to send little Beauty Extras like this instead of the jelly beans. I would rather get to try more products then candy.
Value of this month's Glymm Box: $55.60 roughly. This does not include the value of the replacement Vasanti or Bonus Coup Eclat product.
