GlossyBox Subscription Box Review + Coupon – December 2016
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 is one of my favorite box designs of the year – it is stunning!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (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)

Now, onto the items!
I think this is the best fragrance packaging I’ve ever seen – it’s SO cute!
The perfume is in the base:
This scent is described as a fruity floral with top notes of “Juicy Pear, Granny Smith Apple, Dewy Freesia.”
I’m not much of a perfume person and this scent isn’t for me, but this package is perfect for gifting. It would be a cute stocking stuffer, too.
MDMflow Semi-Matte Lipstick in Bossy – FULL SIZE! Value $18
LOVE the gold design of this lipstick! The finish is matte and I found the formula to be somewhat moisturizing, too.
I was expecting this color not to work for my skin tone, but I applied it over my lip stain and love the results. (Swatched in lower photo.)
MeMeMe Beat the Blues Skin Illuminator in Oyster Gold – 9 ml Value $6.75
This highlighter formula was super easy to blend into a natural looking sheen. I wish the formula was paraben-free, but otherwise, no complaints.
Here it is swatched below the lipstick:
This blending brush is made with synthetic bristles and it’s super soft. (No bristle fallout either.)
VICHY Pore Purifying Clay Mask – .5 oz Value $4
This thin, clay mask took only a few minutes and left my skin clean and smooth. I would have preferred this mask to not be scented with fragrance, though.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $70. I think this is a great holiday box and I like everything included, but one thing to call out is that there is variation in this subscription. Not everyone received the Harajuku Lovers perfume, and I’m not sure how GlossyBox determines which subscribers get what.
If you are signing up and want to make sure you get the perfume in your box, use coupon code HARAJUKU at checkout. (Code expires December 31st.)
