February 2015 Glossybox

I received this month's Glossybox a couple of weeks ago and couldn't wait to take photos and review the products. Unfortunately, as I was going through the card and checking out what everything was I realised I was missing an item. I emailed Glossybox customer service team and within 5 minutes I received a response to say a replacement was in the post. Really great customer service. This is the first problem I have ever encountered with Glossybox in my 3+ years of being with them but I was really impressed with the turn-around. I also REALLY liked this month's box design!

Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk - Full Size £9.99 
A razor was not what I expected to see in my Glossybox but I can see how it relates to the love edition as some of us like to be smooth and silky. This razor is said to hydrate skin for up to 2 hours after shaving. I usually just use disposables so this was a lot nicer to use than my usual 5 for £1 razors. I may consider buying refills for this and upgrading my routine!

So Susan - Rose Quartet Lip & Cheek Palette - Full Size £8
I love the outer packaging for this it's just a shame the inside isn't as exciting and pretty. I'm not a fan of the brush that came with this set and won't be using that. I'm not the biggest fan of using crème blushers either as they make my face feel a bit sticky but I like this for the lips. The shades seem vibrant but colour pay off is subtle.

Essie Repstyle Polish - Full size £9.99
I really like these magnetic style nail polishes and own a few of the Barry M ones. Not usually a colour I would wear but I really like the scaly reptile effect of this. Oh and the love hearts were a nice touch this month.

Royal Apothic Tinties - Coral - Full Size $14
Firstly can we just appreciate how gorgeous the packaging is on this lip buter?! I used it right away. The butter is really nourishing and has a nice coral tint to it. The colour quickly wore away but my lips were left feeling smooth for a few hours after. This is almost too nice to put in my handbag and needs to be displayed on show!

MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow - Fifty Shades - Full Size £14.49
I received this a few days later as originally this was missed out of my box but Glossybox were very quick to replace it. Aptly named 'Fifty Shades' this shimmery grey eyeshadow is actually really nice. It's easy to blend on the eyelid, the only problem I had was getting it out of the pot. I wore this across the eyelid and it lasted all day which I was impressed about. Perfect with a darker colour in the crease for a grey smokey eye.

Bellápierre Cosmetics Super Gloss in Clementine Citrus
A bonus item, thank you Glossybox. This was sent to me with the MARSK eyeshadow replacement, I thought that was really nice and again I am really impressed with Glossybox customer service. Not only did they respond to my query within 5 minutes, my new item was sent to me literally 2 days later so I don't feel like I've missed out.

 Please let me know what you got in your boxes, I love reading other people's Glossybox reviews!
