#review | Glowybox for June’17

Hey hey hey!
Look whose back after the Ramadan hiatus.
Hope you and yours had a beautiful Eid holidays. I just love the festivity and the liveliness that revolved around Ramadan and Eid.
And to add to my festivity was the reveal for GlowyBox for June *yay*

For those of you who don’t know, Glowybox is a Beauty subscription box. Unlike the ones being run online makeup sellers, Glowybox is an organization of its own with serious business goals. They have affiliations with a number of international brands from where they are sourcing the products directly at a phenomenal price, hence ensuring that what you get in your box wont be leftovers of a page’s in-stock contents or free samples they must have received.

Getting to the exciting point, Glowybox can be subscribed to in just Rs. 3000 per month, in which you either get 4 full size products or 5 mix sized products. Lo & behold, check out the contents of June’17’s Glowybox that I got below.

but before that, check out how customized these peeps are…

Revealing the June’17 Glowybox…

Excited much?
I was WOWed when I saw some of the things I had been wanting to try for a while. The most exciting being …

1. THE MAKEUP ERASER.

Did you notice that the box is actually empty in this picture? *lol* Thats coz I couldn’t wait to try it out even a little to photograph it first. [Will share a detailed review of it separately in a few days]
The Makeup Eraser is such a trend these days and will probably continue to be coz makeup removing is such a hassle and a half, I would totally be up for shortcuts if I get any.

 

2. Urban Decay Single Eye Shadow

There is no denying the quality of Urban Decay eyeshadows. And for most of us, UD holds a place in our hearts coz the Naked palette was probably the first we had splurged on when dabbling with makeup. I love the pewter-y silver shade I received and Im glad I did coz I did not have any cool silver shades in my collection yet. I also know that some other bloggers received a gold shade too but I don’t know for sure if the colors were distributed at random or were customized.

That being said, I will review this eyeshadow separately too and probably with an EOTD demo

 

3. Ardency Inn Mascara in Punker

A jet black mascara that claims to lengthen lashes and make the natural lashes curl naturally over time too. I haven’t used anything from this brand before but it sounds so familiar. I wonder if its the “been-around-for-ages-but-still-an-underdog” brand. Regardless, I for one have always hunted for awesome mascaras and if this baby works, you’ll never hear the end of it from me!

4. Victoria Secret Perfume in TEASE

*Hearts* amongst drug store perfumes that I use liberally on the daily, is this brand. And what a popular favorite these days. I love this size to chuck into my purse and I love that its a roll on so I can just dab it on to my wrists and wont have to go all *Pfffftttt pffffttttt pfffftttt* on my clothes with a gassy spray.
Some of the subscribers received Bombshell instead.

5. Lauren B. Nail color

Nail colors are one product I am least excited about since some time now coz I feel like color shortens the appearance on my nails which is why I am normally either sporting them natural or with a french manicure. However this particular shade is going to make me use it often. The lovely warm magenta shade is also complimented by the fact that the formula is not streaky at all. One coat creates a semi sheer but even base of color and 2 coats make them opaque.

I think I will take this along to my next manicure appointment and share pics with y’all on snapchat!

Is it a Yes or a NO for the Glowybox?

Its a HELL YEAH! For just 3000 pak rupees, I have received products worth more that Rs. 9000. All of them which I will use for sure. I am super glad there were no useless fillers in this box or small sample sachets being counted as actual products. Since we don’t have a Sephora or an Ulta in Pakistan yet, this subscription box will help us in trying out products we’d normally be scared to buy without testers.

You also get a discount if you subscribe for more than 3 months so more bang for the buck baby!
