February Glossybox Review | Valentines Edition

Hey girlie's!!!

So its that time again... Glossybox time!!! It's fair to say last months box was pretty pants, I'm sure I'm not alone on that one, but this month Glossybox have won me over again!!! I love the Valentines theme this month and I have to say the limited edition box is gorgeous and the contents inside isn't half bad either, its nice to finally see some full size products in there.

So lets see the little treasures I received inside my February Glossybox...

Maybelline New York Master Kajal Liner in Pitch Black £5.99
 I cant wait to try this, I always eye this up in Superdrug or Boots but never splurge and buy it as I've heard mixed reviews, but finally I can give it a whirl. I always use kohl liners anyway so I'm interested to see how different a cream stick liner is in comparison to my other kohl liners.  

Ciate London Paint Pot in Red Hot Chili £9.00
I love Ciate nail polishes and their amazing quality so I'm super happy to be able to add another one to my nail polish collection. I received the shade 'Red Hot Chili' which I'd describe as a fiery red-orange shade, I can see it being great for summer time wear and looking pretty eye catching on the nails. 

Miners Cosmetics Cocktail Kiss in Manhattan £2.99
I've never road tested anything from Miners Cosmetics before so I was eager to test this little lip gloss out however, after opening the gloss up and swatching it on the back of my hand I can tell I wont like it at all, its just so super sticky, it honestly felt like thick, gloopy glue and it had lots of glittery particles within the gloss too which I'm not a fan of either.

Nougat London Sparkling Body Shimmer in Cherry Blossom £14.00
Not only does this look super pretty in the packaging but it looks gorgeous on the skin too. I must admit when I opened up my Glossybox to see a big pot of body shimmer I immediately thought 'disco ball' but too my surprise it just adds a nice amount of radiance that isn't overly glittery or shimmery at all, it smells incredible too. This is definitely something I'd wear on a night out or on holiday with a nice tan.

Toni & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Stick It Up Gum £7.20
As happy as I am about receiving this little Tony & Guy gem I'm slightly confused as to how I'll use it , the name 'Stick It Up Gum' to me suggests that this product is more for shorter hair styles, it does say its great for creating texture so I'll give it a whirl and see what I think but I don't think this will do much for my long mane ha ha.

Lindt Lindor Treat Bar
Lastly, we have a little extra in the form of some scrumptious chocolate, yum!!! You really cant complain with that can you?

Overall I'm super impressed with the contents of this months box and its theme. I love the fact we got 4 full size products as well as a decent size sample of the Nougat London Body Shimmer and then the little chocolate extra as well, Glossybox really have spoilt us this month and hopefully it will continue he he.

What did you think of this month's valentines box beaut's?? I'd love to know.
