The Glossybox Red Edit

Hi Guys,

This month the team at Glossybox UK have teamed up with the Beauty Editor from Red Magazine, Annabel Meggeson. To create the Glossybox Red Edit edition box. It's packed full of well known products and high end gems, it's by far one of the best boxes they've done for a while. 
The packaging itself screams Red Magazine, I love it. It's simple and very classic looking, it's one of those ones that I would happily have out displayed. As they really do make fantastic little storage boxes, especially for any beauty stashes. 
As well as having five specially selected products inside this months box, there were also two bonus products included in mine. One of which, I think has gone out to all of the boxes, the other to select few.

The MUA Heaven and Earth Palette has been included after a mistake with last months box. After being offered to choose which palette we would like in the August box, not everyone got the palette they had chosen, me included. So very kindly, Glossybox sent out the palette that was requested by each customer in this months box instead, which is fantastic.

Also included is a little bonus gift in the form of a sachet sample of one of the new Body Shop Face Masks. Which I have heard so much about, there are so many raves for the different masks that I'm so excited to get to give the Himalayan Charcoal Mask a go. Although I am already eyeing up that British Rose beauty too!
Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat - £7.99 for 11.7ml
The first product in the line up from the Red Edit is the Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat. I myself haven't used Revlon Polishes in quite a while and to be honest I really don't know why, as they are actually really good for the price. They last well, with very little chipping and usually require very few coats of polish. So I hope this Top Coat also lives up to expectations and gives me a gorgeous glossy long lasting manicure.

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm - £12 for 7ml
Another full size product inside the box is a Antioxidant Lip Balm from The Organic Pharmacy. It's a brand I'm sure I've heard of, yet never tried and with the colder months approaching fast, a lip balm always comes in handy. It's bursting with ingredients such as rose hip, Shea butter and vitamin E, to keep the lips nourished and moisturised. 

Rodial Smokey Eye Pen - £17 for 1.2g
Rodial welcomed makeup into their popular foray of products a few years ago now, but as much as they're a brand I think of when  thinking of Skincare. They're not really a brand I've ever considered trying Makeup wise. However after trying this Smokey Eye Pen, I'm intrigued to try more. The quality of it is lovely, it doesn't lack pigment and it glides across the skin effortlessly due to its really soft gel like texture. Though it does have to be blended quickly, if you want to smudge it out, as it does tend to set quite quickly once on.

Vitamasques Hydro Face Mask - £7.99 Per Mask
Vitamasques is another brand I haven't heard of before, but sheet masks are becoming increasingly popular. The mask itself is inspired by Korean skincare technology and pretty bold states it gives the skin 120 hours worth of hydration. Which I have to admit I'm not sure about, if it can do that I may be willing to buy quite a few more. But sadly I'm a little bit dubious. 

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara - £19 for 8ml
Lastly included in the box, is the ever so popular Better than Sex Mascara from Too Faced. I recently got my hands on the exclusive purple version of this in the Power of Makeup Nikkie Tutorials x Too Faced colab. I was contemplating buying this after having again heard a huge amount of rave reviews and sadly purple isn't always too wearable. So I'm very pleased to have this little guy in this months box, hopefully volumised falsies like lashes are on the horizon.

I really love this month's box, I actually didnt think anything could beat it. However after finding out who the collaborator is for October; (Spoiler Alert! The wonderful blogger, Essie Button!) I think Glossybox is probably onto a winner already.
