January 2016 Glossybox

I was looking forward to this month’s Glossybox as I love a fresh start with cosmetics and products for the new year and could do with a bit of a spring clean with my old products. My box arrived over a week ago now so I have had a good chance to use all of the products I received.

Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask - Full Size £11.36
When I first tried this mask out I expected the consistency to be thick but it's clear and light. This mask is ideal for sensitive skin which is a bonus as my skin doesn't always take to new products. The packaging is simple yet effective and it was clear to see what I had to do with this. I have been using this once a week after cleansing and my skin does feel softer and more hydrated.

Glossybox Eyeshadow - Glossy Mauve - Full Size £7.10
The second item I picked up was the Glossybox Eyeshadow.  I am really starting to build up a collection of Glossybox make up now. This satin eyeshadow appears dark in its pressed form but once swept across the eye this is sheer and blendable. This is definitely a colour I can see myself wearing and it is suggested if you use a wet brush you can get a more dramatic colour which I can't wait to try on my next night out.

Madara Cellular Repair Serum - Full Size £38.00
When I first opened this item I wasn't 100% sure on what I actually had to do with it. A quick google search prompted the answer, apply this serum morning and night before moisturising. The serum is a liquid consistency and aims to plump skin whilst boosting hydration. I am colourblind so I can't be 100% sure on this but I think this is green, although applies clear on the skin. Results have been known to arise after 4 weeks so I look forward to continuing to use this.

Teeez Cosmetics - Oasis Gem Lipstick - Full Size £11.93
This lipstick packaging is brilliant, I love the vibrant colours. I definitely won't be losing this in the bottom of my cosmetic bag! I love the coral/pink shade of this aptly named (coral onyx) lipstick and it does look really nice on. I suggest using a lip balm first as if this is applied to dry lips it does seem to emphasise that so I add a bit of vaseline first. This isn't as long lasting as other lipsticks I have tried but with funky packaging like this I don't mind having to get it out and reapplying it.

Angele Paris Red Nail Lacquer - Full Size £6.32
The last item I tried out was this gorgeous classic red nail varnish. I own a few different reds and always welcome trying new brands. I applied tow coats of this onto a base and then finished with a clear top coat. This nail varnish was long lasting and I even gave myself a matching red pedicure. The colour is perfect for this time of year when I just want to use something with a deeper colour.
