So last month I got my second Glossybox and my first Birchbox! My question was, should I keep getting Glossy or switch to Birch? At the end of this post I'll let you know what I decided! I have them ordered from my favourites to least favourites.
1) Pop Beauty Kajal Pen in Sooty Black
I never seem to find the perfect black eye pencil but thanks to Glossy, I have! The normal price is $10 for .03oz. Would I buy this? Definitely!
Whenever I get mascara I usually end up not liking it because either the brush scratches my eyelid or it just makes it instantly clumpy. With this, the brush was really nice and the mascara looked great! The normal price is $23 for .3oz. Would I buy it? Maybe. I probably wouldn't want to pay that much for mascara since my absolute favourite mascara is cheaper.
I was skeptical of how this mud to foam cleanser would remove makeup and clean my skin since most cleansers like this don't really seem to clean my skin. But after using this I have to say, I was very impressed. It took off my mascara, eyeliner, foundation, powder. I love this and definitely recommend it! the normal price is $39 for 5oz. Would I buy this? Probably. But I would most likely only use it when I have a lot of makeup on after a film shoot or a theatre performance since I don't wear that much on a normal day.
4) Doucce Blush Brush
I got this for free in my August box thanks to the promo code BRUSHUP. I haven't used it yet but I will soon. The normal price is $32.
I haven't tried this nail polish yet but I will soon. The colour is a bit darker than I'd prefer but I do like that it is vegan and cruelty free. The normal price is $12 for .5oz.
I didn't try this seeing as I don't have wrinkles so I gave it away to someone who could actually use it. The normal price is $97 for .5oz.
1) Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
I have to tell you: This is the best detangler I have ever used. My hair is very very long and is waist length so i always use detangler after washing it. the normal price is $21.95 for 8oz. Would I buy this? Yes!
2) Supergoop! Daily Correct CC Cream SPF 35
I usually find that BB cream and CC cream I try is usually greasy on my skin but this wasn't so I did like it for that. The normal price is $32 for 1.6oz. Would I buy this? Maybe. The price is a tad high but maybe.
I am a huge fan of dry shampoo so I was excited to try this. I used it and you would think with the price it would be great, right? Nope, it was just alright. It didn't have that much of a scent and it didn't absorb as much as my favourite dry shampoo. The normal price is $29 for 6.3oz. Would I buy this? No. Suave makes a better dry shampoo for a much lower price.
This is a stick for your lips and cheeks. I got the colour cray-cray which is coral peach colour. I tried it on my lips first and applied it as you normally would. It looked very odd and chalky so the next time I tried it I just barely put any on and it looked much better. I did try it on my cheeks and it wasn't a great colour at all. The normal price (For the set of 3) is $20.
I was excited to try this since it smelled lovely and seemed like it would work well with my wavy/curly hair. After using it as it directed, my hair didn't look any different than it normally did. The normal price is $28 for 5.1oz. Would I buy this? No.
