NARS Glossy Box

I have been toying with starting a beauty blog for a little while now and have decided to take the plunge and I thought what better way to start by doing a review on the limited addition NARS Glossy Box. This is going to be more of a first impressions video and I will update as I use the products.

I apologize in advance but the box is already sold out, I think it sold out in a couple of hours, I was on the website at 9 am to try and get my hands on this and I am so glad I was able to get my hands on it.

I have been a subscriber to Glossy Box now for about 5 months and I think it is great, it is £10 a month and you get 5 products to try out most of which are full size and the boxes are usually worth £50+.

The main reason I did get the NARS  box is so I could try out some of there bestselling products, some of which have been on my must purchase list. If you read the first ever post I wrote as an introduction to the blog you would know that I can't get NARS where I live and my only option is online to purchase any products. NARS products aren't on the cheap side which so I much refer being able to test a few things out before going out and spending a lot of money on something that I won't even like.

Which is why I like Glossy Box I get to try a bunch of different make up with out having to spend a lot of money and I have yet to be left disappointed, I may not like every single product but I usually end up falling in love with a lot of the products that make it worth it.

In the box there are 5 generous sized samples and I will include the price of the full sized items, I payed £30 for the box!

I am going to start with the product I was most excited for which is the blush in Orgasm £23 (full size 4.8g glossy box size 3.5g)

This product is probably one of the most hyped up NARS products and I am not disappointed. Just from the swatch I can tell that it is really pigmented and has a really nice sparkle to it without being to glittery and chunky. Its smooth and swatched beautifully and can not wait to try it in a make up look. 

Audacious Mascara (black) £21(full size 8ml glossy box size 3ml)
I have seen quite a few good reviews about this mascara on youtube so I am looking forward to trying this out. I love trying out different mascaras and especially love mini mascara as it is perfect for traveling or throwing in my handbag.

Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien £19 (full size 2.2g glossy box size 1.7g)

I love a good lip product and swatching this it is really creamy and glided on really nicely. The colour is a nice every day dusty rose almost a your lips but better colour ideal for work and perfect size for my handbag.

Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Veneto (black) £19 (full size 0.6g glossy box size 0.3g)
It takes a lot to impress me with eyeliners especially if it goes on the water line because I have quite watery eyes and £19 is a lot of money for just an eyeliner.

The Multiple in Orgasm £29 (full size 14g glossybox size 4g)
When I got the list of all the items that were going to be in the box I wasn't really excited for this product but after swatching it, I am in love and I can't wait to play around with all the ways I could use it, whether its on my cheeks, lips or maybe eyes, can't wait!

The box is definitely worth the £30 I paid for it. If your interested in subscribing to Glossy Box check out the link below, you can usually get a coupon code to get 10% or 20% of your first box!

This blog is a little bit of an experiment for me, I am addicted to all things beauty and I thought I would give blogging a go. 

A little bit about me then, I am 23 years old and I started to fall in love with make up when I was at university in Liverpool.

I live in the Isle of Man (google haha) and my only options in regards to buying any beauty products is Boots or Superdrug, my nearest Mac store is a plane (or boat) ride away, so it is pretty limited. Thank god for the Internet, I couldn't shop with out it!

I will be posting first impressions, hauls, product reviews on all things Make Up, skin care, nail care, hair care and anything else that I might fancy and hopefully a few make up tutorials.

So enjoy the ride, Please comment below if you have a request, questions or general comments, share subscribe and check out my first post tomorrow on the NARS GlossyBox!
