All Loved Up: Glossybox February 2013.


Love is in the air, like it or not. 

Even without the contents, I'd be loving this months offering. It's a pink box, with a pink ribbon and pink paper stuffing. It's a pink paradise. 

In this months box I received: 

Micabella Cosmetics Mineral Powder Blush in Terracotta (full size £34.95 for 9g) 
MeMeMe Cosmetics Beat the Blues in Oyster Gold (full size £5.50 for 12ml) 
Narciso Rodriguez for her l'eau (full size £23-£66 30-100ml)
Helen É Moisturising Lipstick in Coral (full size £8 for 3.5g) 
Docteur Renaud Raspberry Soft Cream (full size £25 for 50ml) 

The first thing that struck me was the unfamiliarity of most of the brands presented in this months box, which 
is in fact a big bonus. I love discovering new products and apart from MeMeMe & Narciso Rodriguez it was all new to me. 

I've tried the Narciso Rodriguez perfume before and whilst it won't ever be a lifelong favourite, I love most sample sizes to pop into my bag for a throughout the day freshen up. Ironically, I threw out my Benefit High Beam yesterday as it had seen better days. I'm looking forward to trying it's much more reasonable cousin 'Beat the Blues' from MeMeMe. First impressions are positive and I'm sporting some on my cheekbones right now.

The Docteur Renaud cream smells divine and seems to be not sticky but nourishing, I'm going to give a whirl this evening and get back to you. Hey, it's French pharmacy, I'm there!
 I'm a big fan of mineral blush as it can create a great soft effect and I'm excited to try this offering from Mirabella as the shade seems to be right up my street. I am a sucker for a coral/peach toned blush! 

Finally the one product I'm having mixed feelings about is the Helen É Moisturising Lipstick. I've popped it on and I could rave about the formula (non sticky, smooth, moisturising) but the shade is making me look like an extra from a 90s music video. I really can't pull off a brown/coral lipstick. I would consider investigating different shades though. 

What did you get in your Glossybox this month?
