January Glossybox.


Wow! What a box I received this month!!
I am quite excited to show it to you . This month I got 5 full size products, yes you heard right, 5 full sizes items!!! which is always a nice feeling as I guess it makes your spending money worth it. This month the theme is all about a fresh start , not sure if the box demonstrates this but never the less I think they are all great. 



My first one is the eye-pencil, the brand is MeMeMe , honestly I never heard of that brand before but this wont stop me from using it obviously. According to the little note from GlossyBox it's a British-born brand, costs £4 and it is available here. I haven't used it just yet but I did a little swatch test on my hand and the pencil slides nicely and the colour seems really pigmented, so it is one to try in the next few weeks.

Then I also got a Powder blush by Nicka K New York! And I am loving it , not only is the packaging really cute but it comes with an adorable puff applicator and a little mirror too! The shade is a dusty pink which is really what I believe suits me best. This is probably one of my favourite items this month and I am going to try this like...NOW! If you wish to have a review on this item , please send me a comment below :)
If you want to purchase it click here .
Cost $9.99 and this was a full size product so I am really pleased with this. 



Also I got a brightening gel pigments to highlight those cheek bones or any part of your face really , it's by the brand Jelly Pong Pong and I am totally in love with the cute packaging. Also I 've been looking, for a while now, on getting a similar product (I have my eye on the NARS Illuminator click here for more detail, but at £22.50, this product wasn't on my priority list) so getting something similar was a lovely surprise. This product is also one of my favourite items this month. It hasn't left my everyday make up bag since I got it and that is saying a lot. The shade is a light golden rose and stay pretty much all day . This is the winning product this month. Thanks Glossybox ! 
Price of this full size product is £10 for 15g.
Also if you want a fuller review on this product please leave me a comment below, thanks.
Unfortunately I tried to find this product on Jelly Pong Pong website but I couldn't find it , having said that this brand seems to have many other lovely products. If you would like to have a look click here.


In my box this month I also got a face toner by Keshi Natural & Pleasant cosmetics. I already have few toners in hand so I have a lot to go through before trying this one out but I will and if I think it is worth a review you'll hear about it ! :)
This toner as described by Glossybox team contains a soothing blend of calendula, chamomile & aloe vera to calm & rehydrate skin. Seems like a dream mix to me.
this product was a full size and can be found here.
Price :10.70 Euro for 200ml.
 
Finally last but not least , I also got an organic lip balm by Naked Lips and what a little cutie , it doesn't look like much but I am loving it, and this item also hasn't left my hand bag since I got it. As you all know so well Winter is the time of the year where your lips are getting all dry and basically suffering from the cold, wind etc  like mine, so this little balm is more than welcome, also what's more, it's 100% organic . It ticks all boxes to me.
You can find Naked Lips here
Price: 5 Euro /each
 

So there you have it .This month was probably the best I have had from Glossybox so far (I subscribed in October 2014). lf you are not familiar with this concept please follow link below for more details.

Basically you get the choice of 4 different monthly plans (no contract as you can cancel any time) price is between £8.50 - 
£10, excluding postage depending on what monthly plan you choose. I strongly recommend it especially if you like receiving little surprises like me. 

What are your thoughts about it ? please let me know :)
