January 2013 GLOSSYBOX USA: Man Repeller Collaboration

The January 2013 GLOSSYBOX USA arrived a little later than usual.  The box for January was a collaboration between GLOSSYBOX and the fashion blogger Man Repeller.  Instead of the usual pale pink box, the Man Repeller collab was metallic silver with a cheeky faux-stamped "the man repeller" logo.

Inside I was very pleased to see a generous assortment of items including two full size products and five deluxe samples.  The items included this month are some of Leandra's (aka the Man Repeller) favorite products.

My January 2013 GLOSSYBOX USA included the following samples:

Sebastian Professional - Potion 9 ($19.00/5.1 oz)
The ultimate versatile styling cream infused with nine botanical extracts to help restore lost moisture and rejuvenate the healthy look of your hair.  Perfect for styling your wet or dry hair into multiple looks with flexible hold.

Sample size: 1.7 oz
Sample value: $6.33

Tarte - Glamazon Pure Performance 12-hour Lipstick in Fierce ($26.00/0.07 oz)
Achieve vivid long-lasting color with a superb blend of emollient-rich butters (mango, avocado and shea) encapsulated in Tarte's 12-hour power formula.  Helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines leaving lips with a perfect, plumped-up appearance.

Sample size: 0.07 oz
Sample value: $26.00

OPI - Liquid Sand Nail Laquer in Can't Let Go ($9.00/0.5 oz)
A unique matte purple shade with subtle accents of reflective shimmer.  This long wearing liquid sand lacquer dries to a matte finish which means no top coat is necessary!  Apply base coat and two coats of color for full opacity.

Sample size: 0.5 oz
Sample value: $9.00

Estée Lauder - Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara ($25.00/0.27 oz)
Three different high-volume fibers create audacious, false-lash effects.  Lustrous color leaves eyes brighter, wider, more seductive than before.  Build bigger, bolder, more extreme lashes at the Estée Lauder counter today.

Sample size: 0.1 oz
Sample value: $9.26

Le Métier de Beauté - Replenishing Daily Solution ($225.00/1.17 oz)
This rich, emollient formula protects, conditions and hydrates while it nourishes, rejuvenates and detoxifies skin, restoring a healthy suppleness to your skin.  Paraben-free.

Sample size: 0.1 oz
Sample value: $19.23

Narciso Rodriguez - for her Eau de Toilette Spray ($104.00/3.3 oz)
A fragrant harmony of music, intimately refined with a floral facet developing gently and slowly, rounding out into the feminine warm tones of sun-kissed skin, dusted in snow, velvet-like sensuality.

Sample size: 0.03 oz
Sample value: $0.95

Fresh - Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum ($35.00/1 oz)
Umbrian Clay, Fresh's proprietary ingredient, has a uniquely high-mineral content that works to neutralize acidity, purifying and clarifying the complexion.  This treatment formula tones and hydrates while controlling shine and minimizing the appearance of pores.

Sample size: 0.17 oz
Sample value: $5.95

Total box value: $76.72

Of course, I'm over the moon about this month's GLOSSYBOX!  It was good timing, too, because I had been a little underwhelmed with the past couple of months.  The full size Tarte lipstick and OPI polish have me thrilled.  I heard so many great things about this line of lipsticks from Tarte when they released but had yet to try them.  The shade I received is a little more orange and bold than my usual red lip choice, but it'll be a nice change to the darker, cooler reds of my collection.  The OPI Liquid Sand polishes seem like a unique and fun way to add texture to your nails.  And for those who aren't a big fan of the matte look, I have a feeling these would look gorgeous with a glossy topcoat.

I've previously tried the Fresh serum via a teeny foil sample from Birchbox.  Of course, being a such a tiny sample, I never got much of a chance to really give the product a try.  With my oily skin, I'm looking forward to having a bigger sample to better test this product.  Also, I'm really curious to see what kind a magic a $225 facial lotion can offer.  I'll be transferring the foil sample to an empty cosmetic pot so I can ration the product and treat it like liquid gold.

If you received a January GLOSSYBOX, let me know which products you received and what you thought!
