So I received this mascara in my glossybox and honestly I was not impressed. I tried it pretty much straight away and I found that yes it gave me a bit of lift but it caused my lashes to stick together, so instead of looking as if I had lashes I just had horrible clumps. The mascara isn’t waterproof so a bit of sweat caused it to drip down my face. So when I Googled it and realised it was a £3 primemark product, so I guess in that sense you get what you pay for. But I never would have bought this and I wouldn’t recommend it, personally I don’t even think it’s worth the £3. So this is a piss poor product and a complete disappointment. We all want to find that low budget product that works wonders, well ladies and gents this isn’t it. I wouldn’t even give it away to a friend.
So I finally gave in to the whole beauty boxes trend and decided to subscribe. for various reasons I subscribed to two different ones. The ever popular Birch box and also glossybox. They both have the same cost price + shipping. These seemed to be to be the best for value, however there are more that are available to you, at higher and lower prices. If I could have I would have opted for ipsy which is an American brand, that is a lot more tailored to you. Whereas with glossybox as far so I’m aware everyone gets the same products every month, whether it is something you want or not. Whereas with Birch box I feel there is a bit more variation as to what everyone gets. However, my research has led me to believe that ipsy gives a lot more variation for the same price point and it also is tailored to what you would like to receive.
( birchbox ) from what I can tell the packaging is different every month. However this is my first subscription so I can’t be sure, what I can tell you is that this box was smaller in size to the glossybox.
A lot more love and care is given t0 the glossybox in terms of packaging.
The presentation for the glossybox is truly beautiful and you feel aa if you are receiving a gift. This month there were a to total of 5 items. 3 beauty products and 1 hair product and 1 facial cleansing product. The variety of the products is brilliant however, the quality of the products may be a bother story , this will be discussed further in a future post when the products have been tested thoroughly.
The presentation of the Birchbox was nothing exciting, however with this box you recieve a booklet which gives some details on the products received. In this box I received two hair products, 2 beauty products and a facial mist. One of the products was already damaged upon receiving which was the eyebrow comb, the head fell off and is not secured with any kind of adhesive. However further commentary on the products will be made available in a later blog once the products have been tested .
Well those are my thoughts so far Ladies and gents and I hope to bring more to you soon 🙂
