2015 October GlossyBox

October Glossybox

I just recently resigned to start receiving the glossybox beauty boxes again.

I love receiving monthly beauty boxes in my mail. It’s like receiving gifts for Christmas.

October Glossybox

When you first open the box this is what you see. They always include a little card Plus a little booklet that let’s you know everything that is included in your box. Read more…

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Black Dahlia

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Black Dahlia

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Black Dahlia

I received this Full sized Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in my September’s GlossyBox.

I haven’t tried this brand before receiving this and I’m not really a lip stain type of chic, but this tube may be the game changer!

It also comes with a lip brush. I also never use a lip brush to apply my lipsticks so it took me a while to get a handle of it.

With the shade Black Dahlia, I was scared to apply it with the brush because of it may be feathering into the lip lines outside of my natural lip line.

Surprising, it DIDN’T!

The lip brush is very precise so if you’re like me and don’t normally use a lip brush to apply your lip products, don’t be turned off by it.

There are 39 Lip Tar shades to choose from.

Apply the tiniest bead of Lip Tar with our newly-included #010S Short-Handled Precision Lip Brush for complete, opaque coverage, either mixed with other shades or on its own.

PRO TIP: LIP TAR: MATTE™ is best applied over properly moisturized and primed lips. ‘Clear’ LIP TAR™ insures optimum application and also re-hydrates the look of LIP TAR: MATTE™ after application.

I didn’t read the directions on moisturizing my lips before because I’m so use to  wearing lipstick that does it for me. It didn’t turn out that bad though.

Black Dahlia lip tar review

I didn’t use a lip liner or anything,  just the lip brush itself.

black dahlia lip tar review

Pucker Up Beauties!

After a while it will start to dry your lips due to it being a Matte finish, so all you have to do is apply a lip moisturizer if you want.

I’m pretty impressed with this lip tar/lip stain. It lasted through several cups of coffee and my constant talking. It also leaves a nice semi-even stain on your lips after several hours of wear.

Black Dahlia is a great Fall season lip shade.

It’s a deep wine/Burgundy color.

Glossybox for Harper’s Bazaar

September’s Glossybox for Harper’s Bazaar

Harpers Bazaar Glossybox

At last I finally received my September’s Glossybox for Harper’s Bazaar!

I’ve been seeing and reading everyone’s unboxing I was envious and impatiently waiting for my box to arrive in my mailbox.

Here it is October already but with the products inside this box is, I guess worth the wait. But Glossybox, if you somehow see this post, don’t let that happen again. I’m jus’ sayin’!

So on to the probably 1,000th September’s Glossybox for Harper’s Bazaar unboxing post for y’all.

Harpers Bazaar Glossybox

Let’s get to unwrapping this long overdue Glossybox. Yes, I’m still a little salty for having to wait for so long.

Harpers Bazaar Glossybox

The beauty products inside:

  • Essie nail polish in She’s Pampered (Full size)
  • Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! mascara (Deluxe sample)
  • Bvlgari Eau Parfumée au thé Vert Conditioner (Deluxe sample)
  • Vichy Liftactiv Night (Deluxe sample)
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar: Matte in Black Dahlia (Full size)

All of the brands are very well-known.

The one I was excited to get is the Vichy Liftactiv Night moisturizer. I’ve heard nothing great raves about it.

Harpers Bazaar Glossybox, #Glossybox

Optimize skin’s natural nighttime repair mechanisms with this evening moisturizer, which stars anti-aging plant sugar extract, rhamnose, and continuous-release vitamin C. Promising to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and boost skin’s firmness, this cream also offers 24 hours of hydration and improved skin tone.

Full size price: $50

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Black Dahlia

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Black Dahlia

I’m not a lip stain type of chic but this may be the game changer.

This is the full size product which also comes with a lip brush. Using the lip brush was a little tricky for me because I never use this with lipstick.

You really only need a little bit of this product on the brush to apply to your lips. This little container could seriously last you YEARS to use up.

What they have to say about Black Dahlia:

Don’t judge a lip color by its tube. Black Dahlia is a sultry dark red that complements any skin tone. Featuring a liquid matte formula and unparalleled pigment intensity and wear time, this vegan lipstick contains organic help oil and soy-derived vitamin E, for a finish that feels as good as it looks!

Application Tip:

Apply the tiniest amount of Black Dahlia with the included Short-Handled Precision Lip Brush for complete, opaque coverage, either alone or mixed with other shades.

Full size price: $18

Essie She's Pampered nail polish

I can never have enough nail polishes. I know some people get tired of getting nail polishes in some beauty boxes but I personally love receiving them. That is if they’re a good brand. Essie has definitely made a good name for their brand so I’m happy to receive an Essie nail polish.

Look and feel like a princess when you apply She’s Pampered, the perfect Crimson hue.

Full size price: $8.50 / $0.46 fl oz

Bvlgari Hair Conditioner

bvlari eau parfumee conditioner

I don’t see myself buying a full size bottle of this since there are tons of cheaper hair conditioners out there on the market that smells just as nice. This is a luxury item in my books.

Boosting a rich formula that contains green tea extract, Jasmine, and notes of aromatic orange blossom, this gentle cream conditioner leaves hair lightly scented with Bvlgari’s classic Eau Parfumée au thé vert fragrance.

Full size price: $45/6.76 fl oz

Benefit They’re Real! mascara

Benefit They're Real mascara

My daughter was ecstatic for this to be in my Glossybox this month because she literally just threw away her empty one.

It’s an all right mascara to me. It’s not my Holy Grail mascara because I’ve tested out quite a bit of mascaras that blow this highly raved about mascara. So of course since my daughter loves it, she’s getting it.

What Benefit has to say about They’re Real! Mascara:

They’re Real! Mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes like no other. The jet-black, long-wearing formula won’t smudge or dry out. Plus, a specially designed brush reveals lashes you never knew you had!

Full size price: $23 / 0.3 oz

All in all, this months Glossybox didn’t disappoint. Only the shipping for me did.

What Glossybox beauty product are you loving on this month?

Until next time Dolls!

For my $25 Bergdorf Goodman gift card…I didn’t hesitate to use this baby!  I already ordered off the Bergdorf Goodman website and spent the $25 on an item that I’ve been eyeing for a while now that my local Sephora keeps running out of.
I used my $25 gift card on Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush. This blush is $35 full price BUT since I used my lovely $25 gift card, I only paid $10!! Woot Woot! Can ya tell that I’m just a lil EXCITED!
I’m in love with all of my Hourglass beauty products so I can’t wait to get this on my cheeks.
