GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – March 2017
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 good too.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI: GlossyBox sends out multiple variations of the box during some months. So, there may be some variation between what I review and what you receive.
The Subscription Box: GLOSSYBOX
The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 6-month or annual subscription)
The Products: Deluxe and full-size beauty products.

Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included:
Now, onto the items:
Catrice Cosmetics Rose Palette – Value $7
This palette includes 3 matte and 3 shimmer shades. The pigment is pretty good across all shades. (Definitely use a primer, though!)
(Swatched in lower photo.)
Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner – Value $26
This brow lift has a brow pencil on one side and a highlighter on the other end. You have to apply some pressure to get any color payout, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally overdoing it in one swipe!
Here are the brow and highlighter pencils swatched beneath the eye shadow palette:
(The highlighter pencil is barely visible.)
Incoco Nail Polish Applique – Value $9
I’ve tried a lot of different nail stickers thanks to subscription boxes, and these are by far my favorite brand.
These nail appliques are made from actual nail polish, so the finished look actually looks like nail polish, and not like you are wearing stickers on your nails. (Issues I’ve had with NCLA nail wraps and Jamberry.)
To apply these, you stick them on your nails, then bend the excess portion over your nail and file your nail to remove it.
Here they are on:
These have excellent staying power, too!
I was surprised to see Mary Kay in this box! This set includes:
Mary Kay Timewise Repair Volu-firm Night Treatment with Retinol – .3 oz Value $9
This cream is designed to help boost skin hydration and improve skin tone. It’s a rich cream, but it didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy – just soft! I’m a fan.
Mary Kay Timewise Repair Volu-Firm Eye Renewal Cream – 3 g Value $8.40
This cream is designed to improve deep lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. It’s a lighter cream than the night cream, but still felt really hydrating on my skin. (And it was gentle, too.)
Mary Kay Timewise Repair Volu-firm Foaming Cleanser – .5 oz Value $3.10
This is a gentle, creamy, cleanser. It’s fragrance-free but it still has a scent. (It reminds me of one of the Gap body mists of my youth!)
Mary Kay Timewise Repair Volu-firm Serum – .25 oz Value $17.50
This serum is designed to help firm and lift skin. It is fragrance-free, but it still has a subtle minty fresh scent. The formula is creamy, absorbs quickly, and left my skin feeling smooth and hydrated.
Mary Kay Timewise Repair Volu-firm Day Cream – .3 oz Value $9
This day cream has SPF 30. I like the formula, but I’m not crazy about the scent – I’m guessing that’s the SPF.
I’m always excited to see Tarte in a subscription box – I love this brand!
This sunscreen smells lovely, absorbed quickly, and worked well under makeup. The only downside is that my bottle has an expiration date of June 2017. Still, I try to use SPF regularly, (not just the summer months), so I should be able to get through this bottle before June hits!
Figs & Rouge Avance+ Mattifying Emulsion MT+ Sheer Primer – 15 ml Value $18.60
(Good to know for swaps – this item has an inner foil seal.)
I like this gel primer. It has a nice, beachy scent, and it gave my skin a perfect finish for applying foundation.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $139. The value is amazing, and I really like all the products in this box. (I’m loving the Mary Kay products more than I thought I would!) This is one of my favorite Glossyboxes in a while. Now I just hope all variations Glossybox sends out this month are similar.
