Glossybox keeps annoying me in small ways. I have no idea why they roll out shipments in dribs and drabs. I hate it that some people get theirs before others. I don’t get the point in shipping that way. And the customer service was just plain bad. I got to the point where I was kind of afraid that they had my credit card info. I cancelled for February for two reasons: 1. Sucktastic customer service. 2. It was a shitty box with nothing I might use.
I got sucked back in for the March box because they sent me a promo code for an eyeliner which included a spoiler for the Modelco Cheek & Lip Tint. It retails for $24+ and that covers the box cost and then some. Also, I understand that gb has stepped up their customer service from horrible to less horrible. In the end, it turns out March is a good box. Glossybox is $22 per month.
Elite Models liquid eyeliner in Matt Brown – $15.00. I’m going to try it but I’m scared of liquid eyeliner. I’m like a T-Rex having a seizure when it comes to that type of thing.
Modelco Cheek & Lip Tint in Rosy Red – $27.31 on Amazon. I’m happy for this mostly to try on my lips.
Pixi Glow Lid Last Shadow Pen in Shell Sheen – $11.99 on Amazon. It’s got a lot of shine and sparkle which is never a good thing for old chicks like me. I might try it under my eyebrows as a brow definer.
Prestiche Essential Oil Bar Soap in Yin Yang – $17.99. It smell like eucalyptus which reminds me of Vick’s Vapour Rub. Um, just no. On top of that, I don’t like bar soap. They’re messy. I’ll see if one of the kids wants this.
Sebastian Shaper Fierce Hair Spray – $2.10 ($14.35 full size 10 oz on Amazon.) I like Sebastian products and I really need a new hairspray so I’m happy for this.
Illamasqua Medium Pencil in Flinch – $20.63. This was the promo item. On the site it’s called a charcoal grey but it’s actually brown with a grey hue. It’s a hard, dry pencil and I can tell it will be a bitch to get on. I’ll give it a try; maybe I’m wrong. I wish I had used the code to get the lipstick instead.
The only item that wasn’t full size is the Sebastian hair spray which is a deluxe sample at 1.5 oz. There is also a $40.00 gift certificate to use on the Prestiche website. There are several types of items that go for $40 or under but shipping is $12…no matter what you buy. A single soap is $18 with $12 shipping. Ridiculous! If anyone wants this certificate, let me know and I’ll send it to you.
The value of just the product is $95.02. If you add in the gift certificate, that brings the overall value to $135.02. My $22 turned into $95.02. You just can’t beat these subscription boxes for their value. Depending on what I see for April spoilers, this might not really be my last box. I just keep getting sucked in.
