November 2013 GlossyBox Holiday RomanceNovember 2013 GlossyBox noteCurrently available in over 16 countries, GlossyBox has become known for their full sized products, high quality samples and prestigious brands such as NARS, Lancome, Laura Mercier, Tarte and more.

So, what is in the November 2013 GLOSSYBOX?  Let’s check it out!

November 2013 GlossyBox ItemsNovember 2013 GlossyBox sneak peeknovember 2013 glossybox holiday romance productsFrom Mastey, Color Protection Color Protecting Leave-In Oil Treatment.  While the name of the product is a little redundant this treatment really works well for color treated and/or damaged hair.  I concentrate the product mostly on the ends of my strands and then work up, keeping the oil off of my crown.  There was also a 20% off coupon to use towards your first purchase.

From The Aloe Source, Jojoba Radiance Cleansing Polish.  This face polish has a very light and lovely fragrance to it.  Not over-powering at all.  The small micro-beads weren’t at all painful feeling and when I washed it off my face felt very smooth.

November 2013 GlossyBox Holiday Romance eyesFrom Nicka K, the New York Professional Eyeshadow Brush.  This brush is nice and soft, and thankfully very inexpensive.  It’s more of a crease/blending brush but I like it just as much as my expensive ones.

From Jelly Pong Pong, the 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow in Steel.  This is such an interesting shade.  It almost looks like it has hints of evergreen to it.  Nice to apply and easy to smudge, though definitely wear it over a good eyeshadow primer.

From Emite Makeup, Micronized Eye Shadow in Dams.  This matte black is nicely pigmented and smooth, lovely to pair with the Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 for a really sultry, smudged rocker look.  Wear over a primer and apply before face makeup just in case you get fall-out.  I did experience a bit, personally.

November 2013 GlossyBox swatchesWith GlossyBox you get a bit of everything, makeup, skin care, hair product… I love that this subscription box is sure to cover all of the bases, every single month.

I’m super pleased with the items in this months box, and the value is definitely there with the inclusion of several full sized items.  The 2-in-1 Eyeliner & Shadow from Jelly Pong Pong is my favorite item this month, and I’ll definitely be getting a lot of use out of it.

GLOSSYBOX is a subscription service.  You sign up on the website and then from there you can order your subscription based on one month, six months, or a year.  You’ll answer a series of questions and based off of that, you will receive a customized box.  This is all pretty standard for a beauty subscription service.

The price is a bit higher than that of other services you may have heard of or belong to.  At $21 I would expect double the awesomeness of what I’d receive from, say, Birchbox.

GLOSSYBOX will always offer a MINIMUM of five products.  After receiving your box, you can fill out more surveys in order to rate the products you received so they can better tailor your next package.  So, basically, after a few months of the service, your packages should be PERFECT.

**TIP – Make sure you review the products received in your GLOSSYBOX to receive 20 GLOSSYDots per review.  You can use these toward your own free box!**

Pretty in my Pocket Partners with L’Oreal Paris to Bring Even MORE PERKS! (Because You’re Worth It)

By now you know that I’ve been on board with Pretty in my Pocket (as seen in the Allure Daily Beauty Reporter) as a Power Primper for over a year (view all primpish posts here).  Over the last few months things have really started to take off and now PRIMP has partnered with L’Oreal Paris to bring exclusive mobile coupons (aka Perks) to you via the Pretty in my Pocket app.  Perks are location based and can be scanned right at the cash register!

I am excited to announce the upcoming in-store launch of mobile beauty Perks starting Thursday, July 12 at select NYC locations.  You can go to select stores in Manhattan (they are starting one city at a time) to redeem exclusive L’Oreal Paris Perks.

Blog_Teaser2To celebrate, L’Oreal Paris sent me products and I will soon be revealing the Looks I created with the products they sent. Stay tuned to see the full goods (come back here on launch day!), but for now… a teaser…

teaserThe best thing about PRIMP is that you will be able to not only get Perks (coupons on products), but you can see Looks that correspond to the Perks so that you can re-create the look yourself – for less!

It’s true that not everyone lives in the NYC area. But, I wanted you to know what you have to look forward to. PRIMP will be rolling out these perks to more cities and with more brands by the Fall!

The first step to accessing these perks is to download the app!  Once you do be sure to follow me (duh) along with the other Power Primpers & Makeup Mavens.

Check out PRIMPS official post over on their blog and double check that you marked your calenders for July 12th!  I can’t wait to share more of this exciting collaboration with you!
