February Glossybox 2013

I have been a subscriber to Glossybox UK now for 6 months and in that time there have been some 'alright' boxes, some 'amazing' boxes and some which you are just not sure about.  I have yet to find a box or idea like this, that other people prefer more.  I signed up to it because many of my friends raved about then products they received.

Upon opening the box there was unsurprising a Valetines Theme and right now I really love the little magazine that accompanies the box, it does add another layer of excitement as to what might be in your box, because you still have to undo that lovely ribbon which is waiting for you below:

So once the magazine has been removed and the ribbon is undone, the contents of my box this month are as follows:

February Glossybox

1) MicaBella Mineral Eyeshadow 1g - Micabella's collection is made of 100% natural mica, a crystal-like mineral.  These sophisticated shadows will create a traffic-stopping look, no matter what the occasion.  You can choose from four different shades and thanks to Micabella's water-proof formula, even the most active day wont smear or fade your colour.  The shade in my box is 94 Intelligence.  Retails at £14.95 for 2.5g

2) Anatomicals - You Need a Blooming Shower.  I am a huge fan of Anatomicals products, which I was introduced to thanks to Glossybox.  This product is 150ml and the blurb says "A vitalising body cleaners makes every shower a flower-power experience.  The natural healing properties of Rose and Jasmine leave you feeling as fresh and fragrant as a flower, ready to hit the town on Saint Valentine's.  Retails at £5 for 300ml

3) MEMEME FatCat Lengthening Mascara -  Create Lashes full of vlume and alluring depth with MeMeMe's best-selling FatCat formula.  The Whiskered brush provides purrrrrfect eye catching results everytime, making this an absolute must-have for Valentine's Day. Full size product retailing at £7.99 for 8ml. 

4)Sassoon Salon - Sassoon Professional Spray Shine.  One of the key looks this season worn by super-models and celebrities is straight-from-the-salon high gloss super shine.  Sassoon Professional is a luxurious range of high performance products with a finishing line up to give you just that.  Spray Shine is one of our favourites.  A light spray with UV protection, it leaves the hair feeling luxuriously soft and natural with that all important high gloss super shine.  Now all we need is that A-List handbag.  Retails at £14.89 for 250ml.

5) Miners Cosmetics Lip Colour - irresistibly kissable lips are perfect for Valentine's Day - and every other day too!  We love Miners Lip Colours - in 12 flattering shades they are perfect for an effortless day look or a more dramatic night time make-over.  The Shade in my Glossybox is Dreamer and it is a full sized product which retails for £3.99

So an interesting box this month, perhaps everything you need for that Valentines night out!
