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).

Now, on to the items!
Beauty For Real I-Line 24-7 Eyeliner in Platinum Blonde – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $14
(All subscribers will receive this item in this shade.)
This eyeliner seems perfect for a New Year’s Eve look – it’s a platinum gold liner with lots of pigment and shimmer, and it stays put! (Swatched in lower photo.)
Laura Geller Easy Illuminating Stick in Ballerina – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $26
(All subscribers will receive this item, but colors may vary.)
This Ballerina color is a warm bronze, with a beautiful micro-shimmer. It’s super easy to blend, too. Here it is swatched beneath the eyeliner:
Kryolan Eye Shadow Primer – FULL SIZE! $18.50
(Subscribers will receive this or one of the other items in the spoiled.)
I always use eyelid primer when wearing eyeshadow, so this is an excellent subscription box item for me. Plus a little goes a long way, so this tube should last me months!
Show Beauty Riche Couture Curl Enhancing Lotion – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $45
(Subscribers will either receive this or Show Beauty Riche Grooming Balm)
First, I love this fancy packaging! This curl lotion has a lovely scent (very light), and the formula didn’t weigh down my hair at all. I used a blow dryer after applying to my damp hair (as instructed), so my hair dried straight, but I really liked this as a finishing cream.
MakeupDrop Original – Retail Value $20
I received this in a BeautyCon box and I am a fan! Typically, I use a beauty blender or a stippling brush to apply liquid foundation. This silicone applicator gets the same flawless application look of the beauty blender, but it has additional benefits:
- No foundation absorbing into it! With a Beauty Blender or brush, I’m always losing some foundation to the tool itself, but this silicone isn’t porous, so all makeup goes on your skin!
- Super easy cleanup! Just soap, water, and towel it off and it’s good to go! No waiting for beauty blenders/brushes to dry!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $123.50. And this box is all full-size items! I think this is one of the best boxes GlossyBox has done all year – I’m hopeful that it means better boxes in 2018!
