GlitzGlam "Endgame" December 2020 Review
This month's GlitzGlam Box theme is Endgame – Goodbye 2020! I for one, thoroughly enjoyed the theme this month. Good riddance, 2020 threw us all for a wild ride! An info card that lists the products on the front was included. The back of the card had a promotional code to use on GlitzGlam's website.
GlitzGlam Box Diamond Silk Lashes – Listed Value $8.99
My favorite items in GlitzGlam's monthly boxes are usually their lashes! They always seem to be great quality and reusable. Once again, I am not disappointed as I am in love with these lashes! The lashes are in the style "Princess". When reading the info card before seeing the actual item, I thought maybe the lashes might include diamonds on them. No diamonds, but I still felt like a starlet!
The lashes include a thick band for easy glue application. I video-chatted a friend after putting these on, and the first thing she asked was "Where did you get your lashes done?". Great quality!
DoColor 9 Color Shadow Palette, 11.25g– Listed Value $12.99
I received this palette in the theme "Mind", which has shadows and glitter in yellow hues. I tend to get a lot of shadows in browns and yellows. This palette wasn't too different from the rest. I really like how this particular brand has different themes for different colors of the palettes. For instance, Mind has shadows in yellows. "Space" has shadows in blues.
I'm a little bummed that this palette doesn't include names for the different shadows, as I would love to name my faves. Aside from that, I was impressed by the high pigmentation of these colors.
My husband walked by while I was doing this review and said "You look crazy right now, what's going on?" Haha! On the left side, I have the glitter shadow, on the right I used the burnt orange shadow. That glitter shadow lasts ALL DAY. Seriously, it's kind of hard to get off. I had to vigorously rub my eye with coconut oil to remove it. The burnt orange was a lot easier!
KleanColor Mellow Gel Eyeliner-Shimmer, 1.2g – Retail Value $1.50
This smooth, buttery eyeliner is in the color Copper Gleam and is a part of the "shimmery" collection by KleanColor. It gives chic NYE vibes, so a good choice for our Bye 2020 box.
I had to rub the pencil on my arm a few times before it would actually show. I'm more of a black eyeliner wearer. I don't play around with colors too much. But, I may use this with my eyeliner sealer and make it into a nice chrome shadow as I love this tone against my skin!
Skin Chemists Rose Quartz Lip Plump, 8ml – Retail Value $25.00
I've only used a lip plumper gloss one other time before this, and only because my lips were SUPER dry, I forgot my chapstick, and that was all one of my friends had for me to borrow. I've personally never felt the need for one, but I think they're nice if you'd just like a little extra *oomph* of lip poutiness.
(L: Without gloss R: With gloss)
The formula didn't feel very moisturizing, more of a sticky substance when applied. My lips felt super tingly as well. Not a bad tingly per se. More of a "my lips are growing" tingle, haha! I was really hoping it would be more moisturizing as I am ALWAYS wanting moisture in my lip products (especially in the winter months). I didn't notice too much of a difference in the size of my lips from before and then after using.
Verdict: This month's GlitzGlam box had a New Year's Eve theme, and I think all items were nice examples of glitz, sparkle, and posh! The Diamond Silk Lashes were my fave! They made me feel like such a starlet and were super easy to apply – even a beginner could apply these like a rockstar! This subscription costs $17.99 ($15 + $2.99 shipping), and I estimate that I received $48.48 in value this month. This is about average for GlitzGlam.
