GlossyBox February 2020 Review

 

This month’s GlossyBox included two coupons from the usual suspects in subscription boxes: HelloFresh and Naked Wines. Although the box doesn’t come with an info card, February has a “Love Crosses Borders” theme and a clear (and super cute) pink color theme throughout.

 

Oh K! Hydrating Gold Gel Lip Mask – Retail Value $6.00

The first item is the only non-pink item of the month but it does come in gold. The use of gel lip masks has always kind of eluded me. They don’t stay on at all unless you’re lying down on your back, holding completely still. I would just prefer to use a liquid treatment or balm to make things easier on myself. This mask is a jiggly gold set of lips that you are to place over yours and wait for about 10 minutes. After, you’re to massage the rest of the serum in like you would a facial sheet mask. It’s really cute and seems fun but the logistics are just sort of weird for me. I do love the Oh K! brand though and use a cleansing stick of theirs that I simply LOVE.

 

Figs & Rouge Wonder Love Charm Glow Elixir, 1 oz.

Gosh, this is SO PRETTY to look at, no? The box, the bottle, and the actual product all have baby pink tones and the formula is packed with tiny sparkles. While I don’t want my whole face to have a sparkle to it, I can’t help but be enchanted by this item. Those who like a little more glam to their make up would probably enjoy using this serum that makes your skin glow and glitter. It’s very subtle so you can use it alone or mix it with moisturizer or liquid foundation just to give it a little zip. I can also see fans of body glow products excited to use this on shoulders, decollete, and other areas they may want to highlight.

 

Floss Beauty My New Favorite Lip Gloss in ATH, 0.53 oz. – Estimated Value $16.00 (similar linked)

All of Floss Beauty’s lip glosses are named after airports and this hue’s namesake is Athens, Greece. I wasn’t able to find it for sale any longer online, but you can still find JFK (New York), LAX (Los Angeles), and LHR (London). The packaging for this gloss is just adorable and the ATH hue is a nice subtle blush color that simply accentuates my already pink pout. This gloss isn’t sticky at all and boosts shine that also feels really hydrating. I feel like I’m coming around to glosses…

 

Saint Luxe Beauty Lip Liner Duo in Cupid & Crush – Retail Value $40.00

The presentation of these two lip pencils is just lovely, especially for February. As a fan of reds and mauves, these colors are right up my alley and should work with a myriad of lip colors that I already own. Cupid is the lighter pink shade which happens to work nicely with the ATH gloss from the box and makes sure nothing bleeds (although I’m not too worried with a gloss). Lip pencils can really help define a lip as well as give a clear outline to fill in so that I don’t go overboard which I can easily do with lipstick. I’ll definitely be hanging on to these cuties.

 

Bellápierre Cosmetics Highlighter & Eyeshadow in Sultry, 3 g

I’ve never used Bellápierre before but I know it to be a brand that often pops up in subscription boxes. Since I don’t use bronzer on my face, I thought I’d try this as an eyeshadow. The lovely bronze color has a ton of pigment and not much was needed to press onto my lids with my fingertips for the look I was going for. I also happen to really enjoy the wavy texture of the top of powder even though I know it has nothing to do with its performance. So far so good on this one as an eyeshadow! It creates a nice pop of metallic over my more muted mattes.

Here are the swatches for the lip liners, gloss, bronzer/shadow, and a thick coat of the glow elixir to show the shimmer.

Verdict: I found this month’s GlossyBox to just be too cute and really loved the pink curation for February! I was excited to discover all of these new-to-me products even though they didn’t all work out for me. I think the gloss and lip liners were my favorite parts of this one and as a whole, I think this was a fun one. Not all of the products were available online for me to get definite values, but just one or two of them more than pay for the cost of the box. For $21, I’m pretty happy with the selection.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! You should get February as your first box as long as it isn’t sold out.

The month that you order in is the first month that you will receive. For example, if you subscribe any time between January 1-31, your recurring subscription will begin with the January Box.

In its place, we will ship a special edition of the Classic Box, which is comprised of our top 5 items over the most recent months.

  1. I am shocked you gave a good review to the Saint Luxe lip pencils.

    They are terrible quality hard wooden pencils which aren’t even of acceptable dollar store quality. There are excellent lip liners on the market which one can purchase for considerably less. A MAC lip pencil is $18 so why would anyone purchase an unknown brand for more money?

    I received equally terrible eye pencils from Saint Luxe last month. Customs documentations shows the sale of these eye pencils Saint Luxe from a Chinese Alibaba seller. I would be shocked if the owner of Saint Luxe paid more than $1.00 per pencil.

    Both brands have the laughably high retail price and the brand exists only to provide cheap items to put in subscription boxes.

    I appreciate the information provided by your site but it would be more believable if your site provided reliable reviews regarding quality of items.

  2. I must b in the minority here but I loved this box. The lip pencils r gorgeous and actually went on smoothly. The lip gloss IS my new fav the fig and rouge serum is so pretty. Once it’s blended in it literally has no sparkle at all. Its glowy but no sparkle. And I don’t think lip masks r silly at all. It’s a nice little fun pamper.

  3. Please correct me if I’m mistaken, but I’m pretty sure that *in general* the UK has even stricter requirements/guidelines for cosmetics than the US’s FDA does.

  4. I am thoroughly disappointed in this box. Wood pencils that need sharpening should be extinct in 2020, 2 products are made in China, highlighter with mica with questionable expiry (or production) date and a silly lip mask. The lip gloss went to my daughter who said it wasn’t sticky.

  5. Swatches? How did the lip pencils perform? I heard that brand pulls and is hard to get a smooth line…..

    • Hey Dawn, sorry about that! I missed adding the pic. It’s there now. I thought the line was smooth and clean for the liners. I didn’t have a hard time getting them on.

  6. mine is expired…

  7. that wonder and love charm stuff is awful…and mine has expired….guess I could just throw it in the garbage.. why do they send expired products..

    • Uh oh. I’ll have to check mine.

      I wasn’t impressed with this month, TBH.

    • Hi Tammy- Where did you find an expiration date? I only found “B101119” on mine which could be a batch code or production date. They’re a UK brand so they may have different rules as far as what needs to be printed on the packaging and bottle. I’d definitely reach out to GlossyBox to clarify and ask for a replacement product if it is indeed expired.
