Oh, The Glossy-ness! January Box Reviewed!

I just received the January’s GlossyBox “The Man Repeller” sent to me by GlossyBox!

GlossyBox is a beauty cosmetic box subscription that delivers 5 exciting luxury travel-sized beauty products each month. Each box is $21/month or you can sign up for 3 months ($60), 6 months ($115), or 12 months ($220). The cost is more than an IPSY bag or a Birchbox, but the overall presentation, design, magazine, and items that you receive is worth it. It’s very well executed.

For the month of January, they created an amazing box design with the theme, “The Man Repeller”. I’m not sure why I would want to “repel” a man (haha), but I love the motif. “The Man Repeller” is actually an influential fashion blog by Leandra Medine. The concept of “man repelling” is defined by Medine as “…fashion that the opposite sex doesn’t get…”

Well, I can definitely relate.

January GlossyBox MagazineEach monthly GlossyBox comes with a magazine. January’s insightful magazine showcases Leandra Medine with a note from GlossyBox’s CEO on The Man Repeller and an interview with Medine on “man repelling” fashion and her jetsetting ways. Sounds like my type of gal!

I love the quality and design of the box. Even the shipping box, itself, is quite lovely.

I’m not sure why, but when I opened the box I felt as if I was in an episode of Gossip Girl (haha). I just love, love, love the little details of the note, the tie, the tissue paper, and the box. Very classy and fun.

The color I received of the Vincent Longo Lipstain Lipstick is Belle Etoile and it’s a beautiful deep red with a hint of brown to it. Almost like the color of merlot.

This long wearing liquid sand lacquer dries to a matte finish which means no top coat is necessary! Apply base coat and two coats of color for full opacity.” Full size – $8.00

In this picture the lacquer looks blue, however it is a gorgeous shimmery purple.

FYI – LE MÉTIER DE BEAUTÉ sample I received, I love! The product felt rich and creamy; and a little bit went a long way. I can probably get 5+ days use from this little sample.

Overall, I love the presentation GlossyBox brings to the table. They’ve put a lot of planning and a lot thought behind their brand, theme and packaging to make us (the subscribers) feel special every month.
