Glossy Box – The Man Repeller Review

So for January Glossy Box had the wonderful Leandra Medine, author of the blog The Man Repeller (hence the boxes name) put together a special one off box. Now before I get into all the goodies for this month be sure to go check out Leandra’s blog if you aren’t already hooked to this internet sensation, she’s incredibly funny and a wonderful blogger.

Now, into the box I delve…

First off the box is a different color – it’s a sleek gun metal grey and the paper inside is black with little silver stars everything all pulled together with a grey ribbon. I must say I feel like the packaging for glossy box is great, I always save there boxes, paper, ribbon in the vain hope I am going to use it for something else one day! Lavely!

Glancing over everything it seems like I have a pretty good mixture and I have received quite a few items, this makes me happy.

Tarte Glamazon Lipstick in Fierce – I am so excited to see this, Tarte is becoming a really popular cosmetic brand here in the US and I actually do not own anything by them, but can be found regularly eyeing up the counter in Sephora! It’s full size, the packaging is really cool, its in a nicely designed wooden tube, bigger than your average lipstick however I think this would make application a little easier. When I swatched the color it is highly pigmented, feels very creamy and isn’t too matt. Good start to my box:)

Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum – Sample size, I have had a few of these Fresh products before but only ever in other monthly subscriptions, I have never purchased anything. Swatching on my hand it has a medicinal smell, which I don’t particularly like. It feels as if it is lying on top of the skin, feels a little tight and smooth, which I do like. I think I will give it a go, although not really bothered about this product, I actually like a dewy look with my foundation and I don’t suffer from oily skin.

Le Metier De Beaute Replenishing Daily Solution – Sample packet. This product is REALLY expensive if you were to purchase the full size retailing at $225 for the cream and a mascara. Although this cream does look and sound good unless I put it on and it transforms my face in to Angelina Jolie’s face I will not be parting with $225. I am going to save this cream for a day when I am going out somewhere or pampering myself – I will keep you posted on any face transformations.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara – Sample size. This mascara is great, it applies nicely without clumps and definately does what it says on the tin. The wand is a good size making application easy and it gives a very natural look.

Professional Sebastian Potion 9 – This is a styling potion that you can either put in whilst damp for soft movement and a silky look or you can add to dry hair to add texture. Its like a hair milk, same sort of consistency as a moisturiser and has a great scent. Full size it isn’t that expensive to purchase which is a bonus for me!

Narciso Rodriguez For Her eau de toilette – Sample size. Never tried this before but its a heavier day time smell I would say, and kind of reminds me of JLo’s Glow perfume. It’s nice but a little too musky for me.

OPI Nail Polish Liquid Sand in Can’t Let Go – I LOVE receiving nail polish in my boxes makes me all warm inside! We had the ‘crackle’ nail polishes and the next trend is liquid sand, as described by OPI dries to a textured matt finish infused with reflective glints of light. This particular color is a beautiful purple which only needs two coats, it has small bits of glitter and has a sand like textured look and feel which is fun and different. I love how you can get an unusual looking mani with just one polish – definitely would recommend and I will also be purchasing other colors from this line!

VERY happy with The Man Repellers Box and I cannot wait to get playing with all my new stuff!
