Feburary GlossyBox

Hi Everyone,

I got home today to find this months Glossybox sitting on the table, I hadn't heard much about this one as I usually do with others, Sadly unlike last months blog I don't have any favourites to add to this post as with all my college work I just haven't had any spare time to road test anything, sorry!

This months box is their Valentines Day box, when I first opened the box i instantly fell in love with this months box design, I think its my favourite so far, I just love that big pink printed bow!
I have to admit when I first opened inside the box It didn't wow me, I was excited about the Miners lipstick though as I hear so much about them and haven't gotten to try anything from them yet. I do love the big heart lolly inside too though!
1) Micabella Cosmetics Mineral Eye Shadow (£14.95 for 2.5g) This is in the shade intelligence (a shimmery brown shade with gold, silver, pink and a slight blue glitter I think), Ive never heard of the brand before, but I'm looking forward to giving this a try.
2) Anatomicals You Need a Blooming Shower! Body Cleanser (£5 for 300ml) The first thing that jumped out at me was the name, It made me laugh and is also quite clever too, as its a rose and jasmine scented product which I think ties into Valentines Day quite well.
3) Sassoon Salon Professional Spray Shine (£14.95 for 250ml) I'm a bit picky about my hair being shiny, its quite hard with blonde hair to make it shine in a healthy way. Ive had a quick spritz of it and I'll have to try it a lot more first, the scent reminds me of pears and apples though which I love.
4) Me Me Me Cosmetics FatCat Lengthening Mascara (£7.99 for 8ml) This is in Ultra Black, It says it will add extra volume and lengthen the lashes, which is what I look for. I kinda have a love hate relationship with mascara, Ive not found one yet that doesn't end up pulling out my lashes, Hopefully this may be one that works once i get round to using it. I love the packaging of this too!
5) Miners Cosmetics Lip Colour (£3.99 for 4g) At first I was really excited about this Lipstick, Then I looked at the shade, Dreamer, Which is a purple pink frost packed with little bits of glitter, I cant stand glitter in lipsticks! I think I'll have to wait and see if i fall in love with this one.
Swatches (Left to Right:) Micabella Eyeshadow in Intelligence (Blended), Micabella Eyeshadow in Intelligence, Miners Lipstick in Dreamer.

Im not completly won over by this box but I do quite like most of the products, sorry theres no favourites from last months Box, Hopefully I'll have enough time to road test these over the holidays though. Have a nice valentines day!

Have you got this months Glossy Box? If so what do you think about it? Have you already tried any of these products? what do you think?
