If you are a subscription box LOVER like me, then you will know the excitement of seeing that this months box is a Limited Edition box. This month GLOSSYBOX have teamed up with RED MAGAZINE to bring you "The Editors Choice" box - sounds good, huh? Well trust me, it is! This months box is crammed full of the hottest brands around, and filling your beauty draw with some fabulous assets! Come see, won't ya!?
Revlon - Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat RRP: £7.99
When it comes to Gel Nails, I am afraid to say I have all the gear & no idea. I brought myself a UV lamp, and all the nail varnishes you could wish for, but to be honest, I can never be bothered to do it. Having your nails done is supposed to be a pampering, spa like experience, and sitting at my desk, on my own, doing a god awful attempt at gels isn't what I call "Spa Like" - so to be honest my little UV Machine hasn't had as much use as expected. Anyway, leading from that, seeing this little pot in my GB was a dream, that I welcomed with open arms. This handy (No pun intended) product allows me to get the gel effect, with one swipe, on top of any normal nail varnish!? Simples. I have been loving whacking this on and feeling fabulous in 5 seconds.

Too Faced: Better Than Sex Mascara (waterproof) RRP: £19.00
Judging by the name (sorry mum & dad) I thought this mascara MUST be good! I have heard/read a lot of people from the bloggersphere talking about it so I will admit I was bloody excited to give it ago! I posted this picture toInstagram HERE and a few people said they hadn't tried the WATERPROOF but they loved the original.
My verdict is that is pretty damn brilliant! With only a light layer of this stuff you get lengthened & thickened lashes, however with a few more swipes you can easily build up to a full false-lash effect (with out any of those hideous clumps may I add!). This waterproof version meant that my lashes were smudge proof, and even rubbing my eyes ( I have a tenancy of doing this and leaving myself looking panda-like) still left them looking perfect! I'm going to have to now pick up the full size because why the hell not.
Philosophy - Amazing Grace Firming Body Emulsion RRP: £29.00
I don't know about you guys but I had never heard of this brand before this months box, and if yano me, you'll know I love a newbie, so as you can imagine I had doused myself in the stuff before even discovering what it was really supposed to do. The first thing noted was the SMELL - oh ma gawd its pretty sexy. Being rubbish, as usual, at describing scents I'd say its clean, fresh, yet girlie and pretty at the same time, yano? (probably not, sorry you'll have to sniff it for yourselves!) Along with leaving me smelling fabulous, it also left my skin feeling just as good. With-out feeling heavy on the skin, it almost felt like it had left a layer of moisture on me, which seemed to last for a good few hours!
Pass me the full sized!

Rodial: Smokey Eye Pen RRP: £17.00
If you have read my The Rodial Effect post you will already be pretty familar with the fact I am a #1 fan of this brand, so spotting it in my Glossybox gave me a lil' buzz. I'm a sucker for a smokey eye and to be honest I don't really save them for weekends or nights out, I'll happily go do some food shopping with a smokey eye and a strong highlight - when you have all this makeup, you might as well make the most out of it! Anyway back to the point, this eye pen is the perfect add on to your makeup bag, infact no, you need it. It is super verstile as you can easily create a slick, perfect black line or blend it out to create that smokey look. So technically is two products in one, right? The best thing about it is the longevity - I can wear this eyeliner ALL DAY long without a single budge.

Vitamasques - Hydro Face Mask RRP £7.99
There is nothing quite like spending your Sunday #SkincareSunday having a bit of a pamper, and that is exactly what I did last night, with my Hydro Face Mask being the MAIN EVENT - oh yes, it was the superstar of the show and that's because of how wonderful my skin feels now - 24 hours later. I can't back up the promise of 120 hours of hydration because I'm not at that point however I am well on my way and my skin still feels so soft and moisturised - yay! Being a sheet mask, it was really easy to apply and stayed on my face much better than usual masks (I thought I had a funny shaped head or something). I can't wait to try out more masks from Vitamasques and also see if I can get to 120 hours of hydration!!

The Body Shop: Glow Mask (Sample)
In this months box we also got a sample of The Body Shop Glow mask – I haven’t had chance to give it a try yet (I only have one face, and walking round Sainsburys with one on probably wouldn’t have gone down to well). But I am excited to give it a go, as I’ve heard wonderful things!
Fancy picking yourself up a Glossybox (do it, do it, do it!) you can easily subscribe and give it a goHERE - I'm sure it will tickle your fancy!
