GlossyBox Review – Harper’s Bazaar September 2014
GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. They have the best packaging in the business, their products are usually deluxe-size or full size, and the value is usually really good too. The only issue with this box seems to be the late shipping – I would recommend just keeping that in mind and setting your expectations accordingly if you sign up for this box.
GlossyBox sent us this box for review purposes. (My Subscription Addiction also pays for this subscription, but I haven’t received a shipping notification email for my September box yet). (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This month GlossyBox partnered with Harper’s Bazaar to curate the box, and as usual, the packaging is gorgeous!

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Essie Madison Ave-Hue FULL SIZE! Value $8.50
OCC Lip Tar Authentic FULL SIZE! Value $18
I don’t think I captured it in the photo, but this Essie pink shade has a subtle microglitter in the formula.
I was really excited to try Lip Tar (and I love the little lip brush that comes with it), but unfortunately for me this metallic coppery shade does not work with my skin tone. (The other shade you could get is Black Dahlia – a VERY dark red).
Vichy Liftactiv Night (0.51 fl oz) Value $15
Bvlgari Eau Parfume eau thé blanc Conditioner (2.53 fl oz) value about $16 (That link is to the shampoo – I can’t find the conditioner online, but I’m assuming the price per ounce is about the same)
My husband loved the Bylgari shampoo he received in the GQ Quarterly box, so I’m happy to have my own Bvlgari hair product! It is definitely an indulgent shower item!
Benefit, they’re real! mascara (0.1 oz) Value about $10
I always use Benefit mascara samples up whenever they appear in subscription boxes – I’m happy to have a new one!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $67. I’m happy with the box, but if the Lip Tar would have been a shade that works for me it would have been a great box. What do you think of the Harper’s Bazaar GlossyBox?
