••• GLOSSY BOX MAY 2013 •••

Glossy Box May 2013 2nd Birthday Box

Here everyone, received my box yesterday around 6pm in the evening and therefore didn't have the time to blog straight away but hope I am not too late :). This month's box is Glossy Box's 2nd Anniversary Box and therefore the box has a different tissue paper which is very lovely along with pink ribbon and sticker.


  • Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray 
  • Jelly Pong Pong Mascara
  • COLLECTION Eyeliner
  • Beautiful Movements Cosmetics Mixing Primer
  • Headline Colours Nail Varnish 
  • ..and Glossy Box extra: Pack of Mini Nail File

When I opened my box, I was literally so happy! My first impression was positive and it certainly was throughout discovering what was inside. I received 4 full size product this month :)
Now lets have a look at the products in details:

 Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray 125ml (Full Size £18.95)

First up, I received a shine spray by Awapuhi Wild Ginger which is a wooping £18.95 Full size. I wouldn't personally have pick this product up as I don't normally purchase hair products  that often. But I am so happy that I received this product. At the moment, my hair is having its bad time, dull and no life and therefore would definitely give this a go. 

Another full size product received in a box which is a mascara by Jelly Pong Pong (also known as So Susan as far as I can remember). Sorry I haven't opened it as once it's opened, I will have to use it within 6 months to avoid expiry dates etc. I have lots of different Mascaras so not sure when I would be able to start using this. But thinking of putting it in my handbag once , the current one runs out :)

COLLECTION Fast Stroke Eyeliner (Full Size £2.99 6ml)

Another product I was happy to received and of course it's full-size. This is a water proof eye liner and I used it once and was impressed to see it stay put on all day. I was running out of my current eye-liner and receive this product just on time. Spot on Glossy Box :)

This sample by BM Cosmetics (previously known as BM Beauty) carries multi-task. This can be used as a 

  • primer
  • can be mixed with foundation for an airbrush effect, 
  • can be used for powder blusher to create cream blush/bronzer, or 
  • with eye shadow pigments to ceate liquid eyeliners.

WOW! Now that's what is called MULTI-FUNCTIONED!
I have also discovered another task that can be done with this product, I used it with Powder foundation to create liquid tint ;)

 Headline Colours Nail Varnish (Full size £9 for 10ml)

Another full size product! And the colour , O-M-G ! How did Glossy Box know that I was looking for this sort of colour for spring/summer! Lovely quality, as from one one coat, you could really see how pigmented the nail varnish is, love ittt!

 Glossy Box extra: Pack of Mini Nail File

Last but not the least, this month's box also contains a little extra which Glossy Box kindly included . My friend was asking for a nail file at the lecture room the other day and I didn't have any so felt embarrassed and decided to keep a mini one. Therefore this little treat is definatly going in my handbag.

Overall, I loveeee this month's Glossy Box. I have seen a few variation and so glad I have received this box as most items are going to be used. If you're my regular reader, then you know how much I love receiving make-up in my beauty boxes and therefore this month's box gets 4 out of 5 from me :)

Don't forget FRONTCOVER LIPSTICK SET Giveaway is still on here
