GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – May 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.

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included:
And a reminder that the Limited Edition CEW Glossybox is coming soon:
Now, onto the items:
Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Pillow Talk – FULL SIZE! Value $16
This nail polish is a gorgeous cranberry creme with high shine. Full coverage in two coats. Here it is on:
(I just realized I received the exact same nail polish in my April 2016 GlossyBox, so some subscribers may be getting a repeat.)
Vitry Nail Repair Care – 4 ml Value $8
This formula is designed to help strengthen nails. It also is great for a no nail polish look. It gives a subtle shine. (And I love that it dried almost immediately.)
(I could only find this palette available in the US for sale on Amazon and Ebay, so I’m using the Amazon price. GlossyBox lists the retail value as $28)
UPDATE: Available online at Skinn Cosmetics here. (Sorry about that!)
This palette includes a blush shade, a shimmer highlighter, 3 shimmer metallic eyeshadows, and one matte brown eyeshadow.
The pigment payoff is pretty good. The shimmery eyeshadows are gorgeous. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Rodial XXL Lip Liner in Nude – FULL SIZE! Value $22
I really love the color of this lip liner. It works well as a barely-there color for my skin tone. The formula is creamy, and the pigment is pretty good. (I made the mistake of pressing down too hard to get more color payoff and broke the tip, so apply with a bit of caution!)
Here it is swatched above the palette:
This cleansing brush has a combination of soft bristles and five silicone bristles. (The silicone parts are designed to help with gently massaging your skin.)
(This also comes with a protective cover.)
This isn’t a Clarisonic, but it definitely helped get my skin cleaner than just using my cleanser + my hands. And it’s great for travel, too.
Here is everything in the May 2017 GlossyBox
- Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Pillow Talk – FULL SIZE! Value $16 (Subscriber cost $4.20)
- Vitry Nail Repair Care – 4 ml Value $8 (Subscriber cost $2.10)
- Skinn Cosmetics “Bronze Goddess” Eye Shadow & Blush Palette – Value $25 (Subscriber cost $6.56)
- Rodial XXL Lip Liner in Nude – FULL SIZE! Value $22 (Subscriber cost $5.78)
- The Spa To You Deep Pore Cleansing Brush & Massager – Value $9 (Subscriber cost $2.37)
Total box value: $80
I think the value for this box is good compared to the $21 cost, and I’ll use everything included. I also appreciate that there were multiple full-size items in the box. The downside to GlossyBox is that sometimes you’ll receive products that aren’t available to buy online, so the “discovery” aspect of this box is a little limited compared to other beauty boxes.
What do you think of the May 2017 GlossyBox?
