I had a few issues with my GLOSSYBOX this month. First, when my box arrived, it was missing the NuMe Argan Oil. After contacting GLOSSYBOX, they happily sent a replacement for the missing product. My other major complaint was that I received the exact same blusher that I had gotten in my October box. Personally, I don't believe that any subscription service should send repeat products to customers, ESPECIALLY two months in a row! When I contacted GLOSSYBOX about the missing Argan Oil, I complained about the repeat blush and requested another sample be sent; however, they claimed they couldn't/wouldn't send a replacement. In my opinion, they really should have done something to fix this mistake.
Other than those issues (the first I've really experienced since signing up with the company), I was pretty pleased with my box. I've never tried nail polish appliques, so I'm curious to try these from Incoco. I received some from them in a past Birchbox, but they were a hideous pattern and I gave them to a friend. The ones I received in my GLOSSYBOX are a very lovely red with a subtle shimmer. They'll be perfect for the holidays. When I first looked at the Illamasqua pencil I received, I thought it was a brown eyeliner, which was disappointing as I have a TON of neutral eyeliners. Fortunately, after swatching it on my hand, I saw that it was actually a gorgeous deep berry lip pencil! This will definitely come in handy with some of the dark berry lipsticks I have been enjoying this fall.
I've tried most of the products from my October GLOSSYBOX. For me the stand out products have been the ModelCo lipstick/gloss and the Natassja Skin Enzyme Facial Peel, both of which I adore. I've been enjoying the blusher and the loofa soap as well. I honestly haven't tried the shine mist yet. I have quiet a few of these on hand now from years of subscription services and I have to be VERY careful with them as they all tend to make my hair look like oily.
