GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – December 2015
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 early for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI – GlossyBox sends out multiple variations of boxes each month – so not every subscriber will receive every item in this box.
The Subscription Box: GLOSSYBOX
The Cost: $21 a month (save more with 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription)
COUPON: Limited Time Only! Use code BOX10 to get your first box for $10 with a 1-month 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.
MTJ Cosmetics High Definition Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $21
I could not find a link to buy this mascara online in the US, and it didn’t come with any packaging, so I’m not sure what the ingredients are. That issue aside, I tried this out and I’m impressed with the formula. It adds length without clumping, and a little bit of volume too. (Not as much as my favorite tarte mascara, but I’d still give this a B/B+).
(Scents will vary for subscribers)
Does anyone else get excited when they see a Shark Tank product in a subscription box? (I’m also extra excited about this company since they are also from Pittsburgh!)
This scrub is made with all natural ingredients, and I think the cranberry scent is perfect for the holidays. There’s a good amount of oil in the formula, so it will definitely keep your skin moisturized, too!
Gold Label Cosmetics Creme Lipstick in First Class – FULL SIZE! Value $14
(Colors will vary)
I love the gold packaging of this lipstick! The color is a little bolder than what I usually wear (a lot bolder, actually), but I like that this shade is a cool toned red lipstick. (Swatched below).
Color Club Nail Lacquer in Feverish – FULL SIZE! Value $8.50
This is a deep red/cranberry creme. (Based on the card it looks like this product will NOT have variation). Color Club is one of my all-time favorite nail polish formulas, so I’m very happy with this inclusion.
GlossyBox Eyeshadow in GlossyBox Mauve – FULL SIZE! Value $11
Well, this didn’t make it to me in one piece, but I should be able to reset it with some rubbing alcohol. I like the color a lot too. It has a hint of shimmer, and the pigment is great. Swatched here:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $68.50. I think that’s a good value for a $21 box! My favorite item in this box is the Simple Sugars scrub. It was a nice surprise to see when opening the box – and I already want to try out other scents (Like Candy Cane!) Since Glossybox includes international brands, and sometimes their own in-house brand, I would love to see them include ingredients on the info card for each item. Other than that, I’m very happy with the box this month.
