Glossybox June 2020 review!

‘World of Beauty’ June Glossybox

I’ve been a subscriber to Glossybox for the last few months and I’m really enjoying receiving it every month!

For those that don’t know, Glossybox is a monthly subscription box where you choose a plan (starting from £8.50 a month) and receive a box of 5-6 beauty treats to your door every month!
For more information visit the Glossybox website here.

Each month, the box has a theme – this month’s theme was ‘World of Beauty’ and gave us the chance to experience make up and skincare from across the globe! Exciting – given the fact that we can’t travel ourselves right now (cheers ‘rona!).

Here’s what was inside:

Huda Beauty Life-Liner (RRP £18)

Huda Beauty founded by Iraqi-American beauty guru Huda Kattan is everywhere at the moment! So I was excited to see a Huda Beauty product in my Glossybox this month!

We received a dual-ended eyeliner, with a liquid liner one end, and a creamy pencil the other (note- be very careful with this one, I’ve managed to snap mine already!) I’m not one for liquid liner usually but the brush feels great and easy to use (not too thick!). It applies a dark, full colour and isn’t a liner that you have to go over 100 times to make it show up. It’s also really useful to have the two ends of the liner together as it cuts down the amount of products I need to pack and take with me if I’m going away (probs not anytime soon, hey ‘Rona?)

All in all, a great product and a welcome addition to my makeup bag – and in keeping with the theme “World of Beauty!”

A quick 30 second application of the ModelCo eyeshadow, the Huda Beauty eyeliners and a touch of mascara.

ModelCo Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in Champagne (RRP £15)

ModelCo is a company that I hadn’t heard of until my Glossybox arrived. After a bit of research, I found out it is an Australian, vegan-certified and cruelty free (big tick) beauty company. We received a liquid eye-shadow in the shade ‘champagne’ (a shimmery gold colour!).

Again, I’m not really one for liquid eye-shadows but I think that is what is so great about Glossybox, it gets you to try products that you wouldn’t usually purchase!

The applicator feels a little clumsy – it is quite big and similar to an applicator that you’d expect for a concealer which I found applied the product in a streaky line. Additionally, the product did crease quite quickly – and my eyes felt a little sticky. It isn’t something I’ll reach for every day but might be something I’ll use a fair amount at Christmas time as I love the shimmer it gives!

The applicator – as mentioned I found it to be a little clumsy and wasn’t the easiest to apply

LA Splash Cosmetics Brush Set (RRP £15)

I always welcome new make-up brushes and I was pleased to see that these would be perfect for applying precise eyeshadows.

Again, LA Splash isn’t a company that I had heard of before, but as the name suggests, LA Splash is a US based cosmetics company.

Admittedly, I haven’t used the brushes yet, however they feel incredibly soft and sturdy (i.e. they wont fall out and end up with you having to pick brush bristles out of your eyelashes!). The Defining brush is angled and will allow for a great amount of precision when applying eye shadow.

LA Splash defining and setting brushes – I love these!

This is a great addition to this month’s Glossybox and I will definitely be using these.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Makeup Removing Cloths (RRP £7.99)

Right so I will start by saying I did not have high hopes for these. I’ve tried removing makeup with just water and a flannel, water and my hands or even baby wipes and have ended up looking like a depressed panda. So I was really intrigued to see how these worked. I’m always up for another way to help the planet and reduce waste!

I got overly made up for a family BBQ and caked my face with most of the makeup products I own so that I could use these cloths when I got home and test them fully.

I was shocked at the results! It removed a good 95% of the make up and not a panda eye in sight!! There was only a slight amount of foundation that came off when I used my cleanser afterwards! These cloths are going to be a festival staple for me from now on, and the snazzy patterns are a welcome addition too!

Natura POTATO & PARSLEY Infused Under Eye Mask (RRP £4.95)

I love an under-eye mask (I love a facemask in general) so I was pleased to see an inclusion of one in this month’s box. I don’t usually purchase facemasks and all the ones I get are usually from beauty subscription boxes – sometimes I’m disappointed if I’ve not got one included!

Having said that, a few people did receive the Beautaniq Beauty Guardian Angel Eye Mask which I would definitely have preferred – that is probably my only disappointment with the products this month! Glossybox does have variations in their boxes so everyone doesn’t always get the same. It’s luck of the draw!

Did you get a sold out June Glossybox this month? What did you think? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

Until next time x
