September 2012 GLOSSYBOX USA

I have to say, after the amazing August GLOSSYBOX, I was curious to see if this month would be as impressive.  If you ask me, it certainly didn't disappoint!

 Another great month, GLOSSYBOX!  I have some seriously oily skin and I am beyond stoaked to try the Mattifying Gel.  I'm also really excited to try the Missha BB Cream.  This will be my first time trying an authentic Asian BB Cream.  The shade I received (No. 21) looks like it may be a tad dark for my fair complexion, but it blends seamlessly into my arm so I have hopes it will work well on my face.  I never get particularly excited about shampoo and conditioner, but I'll give these a go.  The GLOSSY Pink lipstick looks like a lovely shade that I'll get tons of use out of.  Unfortunately mine arrived a little beat up (the lipstick itself have loosened from the bullet and had gotten a bit smashed against the cap), but still useable.

From my August GLOSSYBOX, I have been absolutely loving the Touch in Sol Feel like Honey Moon Skin Base.  I've been using this nearly everyday I've worn makeup since receiving my August Glossybox and it's definitely become one of my favorite primers (and I've tried quite a few).  I love that it isn't silicone based so it doesn't leave that greasy film on my skin.  It really doesn't feel like much going on, just a little moisturizing, but I definitely notice my makeup applies more evenly then it does alone or over any of the other primers I've tried.  I'm sad to have discovered that I can't really pick this up locally at ULTA or Sephora and will have to order it online if I decide to purchase it once I run out (and I'm certainly tempted to).  Fortunately the sample I received is very generously sized and will last me several months.  I've been enjoying the other products from my August box as well, but this has been my stand out favorite!


  1. i absolutely love glossybox!~ can't wait to get mine! i love that bb cream :)

  2. Oh! I actually didn't get that mattifying gel, I got a cleansing mineral water. Still full size, but interesting to see a completely different product!
