February Valentines GlossyBox!

Hi Guys,

Firstly sorry for the lack of posts recently, I've not been very well for around two weeks now and its taken its toll on my lack of posting, but don't worry I've got lots of posts planned so hopefully things will be back to normal soon!

Now onto the Glossybox! I was very excited about this one just due to the design of the box, I think this is one of my favorite designs so far, as well as that the box seemed rather weighty compared to the last one which is usually a good sign.

This months Glossy Mag I've really enjoyed especially that blusher segment! I think I'm starting to become a little blush obsessed... Plus there's also a card to win an £1,000 holiday which I thought was a nice fun treat!

Before I even looked properly at the box I have to say I was really exited! Ciate Nail Paint I see you! Plus Glossybox have added in a little extra!

1) Miners Cosmetics Cocktail Kiss in Flirtini - £2.99 for 12ml
I've had a miners lip stick in a past GlossyBox and it was ok, I was quite excited to see this in the box as I've been wanting to try more Miners Products, I like the shade, however it does feel a little sticky and just overall reminds me of a lip gloss you'd get free in a magazine when you're younger.

2) Nougat London Sparkling Body Shimmer - £14 for 250ml
At first I thought this was a bubble bath I'm not sure why haha, I've never really seen anything like this either, powder shimmer and things like the Lush Shimmy Shimmy is more what I think of when I see body shimmer. Its got quite a perfumed scent to it, but it rubs in nicely and is quite subtle.

3) Toni and Guy Stick It Up Gum - £7.20 for 90ml
This one confused me, I have very very long hair so what I need a product like this for, or what I'd even use it for I wasn't sure, but in the Glossy Mag it actually tells you about some fashion week idea's on how to use it on long hair, I'll give it a go but if it fails my brother has just earned himself a new hair product!

4) Maybelline Master Kajal Liner - £5.99 for 3g
I was really excited when I realized what this was, After the last Maybelline product I received in a GlossyBox, I'm  quite glad to see one I'll actually use and confession! I don't think I own a Kohl/Kajal Liner! Its very soft and pigmented, I'm looking forward to giving it a go.

5) Ciate London Paint Pot in Red Hot Chilli- £9 for 13.5ml
GlossyBox actually previewed that Ciate would be in the box, but I forgot, which made it even more exciting to see it sat there. Ciate make great polishes and this one seems like quite the classic, its a red with a orange tone to it and was part of the Sun Catcher Collection from last year.

6) Lindt Lindor Treat Bar - 79p
The added extra for Valentines day is Chocolate! GlossyBox knows how to win me over, this didnt last for long!

Glossybox have made a pretty great box this month! Four full size products and a chocolate bar, they also fitted the theme of Valentines Day too. I'm looking forward to the next box hopefully it'll be as good as this one!
