Glossybox June 2016 **Spoilers**

Recommended Posts

Almost a new month.  All I hope for is no more products from that sketchy conglomerate of companies. 

 

I've got three free boxes I exchanged Glossydots for but then I think it's time for GB and I to part ways.  It's been years.

I am a little afraid of the box being Make-up heavy. I hope the next spoiler is a face mask or something else skin care related.

That and weird hair products, like a super stiff hold hairspray from some obscure Belgian hair care line...

Thanks for posting @! Not really feeling this box. I hope it gets better.

Prep and prime makes me think of skincare and maybe a primer, hoping for recognizable brands at least.  Glossybox is really getting into unknown brands along with the sketchy-ass company that they keep partnering with.  I'm not a complainer and never contact customer service unless it's an actual problem but the statement from GB recently is still not sitting well with me.  I think I'm sticking with my cancellation after I get these three free boxes coming to me.  Got too much crap anyway!

I agree, nothing exciting about more mascara. I can't tell you how much mascara I have in my stockpile and how infrequently I change mine out lol. Glossybox seems to have lost its excitement too, I won't renew when my Gilt City deal is up.

Full spoilers are up on MSA. It's a disappointing box, imo.

Vichy Eau Thermale (water spray mist)

Leighton Denny Miracle Mist (this is a nail polish drying spray)

Caolion Freshly Hydro Sheet Mask

I remember being tempted by Glossybox in Jan/Feb of this year but I'm glad I didn't sign up. They've become pretty boring with unknown brands that really aren't worth it to me.

 

The same is happening with Boxycharm, albeit to a lesser degree (the MUG products have been their only exciting products recently).

I actually like this box and am especially excited for that nail polish drying spray, but I don't get what any of the products have to do with the Broadway theme.

Technically it's a Tony Awards theme. I can see how the products fit an awards show theme: clear, "dewy" complexion, tan skin, smudge-free manicures, waterproof mascara (for all the tears during acceptance speeches).

 

I would have much preferred a Broadway theme! Nyx Wicked lippies, hair powder for our Hamilton wigs... ;)

I got a mail in my other email address...it says a Sinful Color Nail polish will be included...from Kylie Jenner Collection...Colors will vary...and I think every box will come with one of them.

That was not included in any of the blogger reveals.....

Eh I'm not thrilled about mascara. The water spray is ok, I use them at the beach they're pretty refreshing. I'm intrigued by the nail polish spray.

 

I like sheet masks enough, but they do get over sampled in these boxes. And while I personally like to self tan, I think the tan towel is a terrible sample to include, unless it's an extra. The possible addition of nail polish makes me like the box more.

I'm excited about the thermal water spray and the quick drying spray and sheet masks. Surprisingly I don't get too many sheet masks. I hate the tan towel as a sample and so over mascara. I have more than I can use in a lifetime, thanks to all my boxes.

According to Glossy's instagram, we will be getting a nail polish. It's supposed to be a color from the Kylie Jenner Sinful Colors polishes. Not blown away this month at all.

The nail polish is on their webpage now too. Isn't Sinful Colors a brand that sells for $1.99 at Walgreens? Don't get me wrong - I love a (good) cheap polish, but Sinful Colors is neither "Luxury" nor "up-and-coming niche," which is how Glossybox describes all of its products on its home page.

 

Also, can I just say that I do not care for the Kardashian presence in sub boxes this June? Between the Allure box and this one, my K-family branded possessions have increased 200%...

Sinful Colors are very cheap, but they're sooooo nice!! I love the colors, and they last forever, longer than my Julep polishes. But I saw the Kylie Jenner ones at Walgreens, I was not a fan of the colors, lots of nudes and things. Although MSA just posted four colors and if those are the ones, they're not bad. I'd hope for the blue one. It seems Glossybox is going downhill very fast. I'd be so mad if I paid $21 for this box rather than like $24 for Boxycharm.

I did pay $21 for the box, and I cancelled for next month.  One good thing about this box is it is a little different than other sub boxes.  I loved the rituals shower gel last month.  I will resubscribe when there is a deal, but I think $21 is a little steep. I am excited for the face spray.  My skin gets a little shiny when it is hot out and I don't really have a need for face moisturizers in the summer.

MSA has the updated box, it seems rather disappointing. I was so excited for the nail polish spray and now it looks like it's not going to be in the box. I just got my tracking number, I wonder if I can still hope I somehow get that spray lol.

I wonder if the spray will show up in a future box.... but yeah not very impressed with either version. The French box was the last real themed box/"collab" they did I can recall and that one at least had some good stuff going for it despite the incredible discrepancies in curation per box. I got the Guilt deal for my sub but honestly would have cancelled a while back if I was paying full price for these boxes compared to the other beauty subs for less. As soon as my year sub ends and I cash in my free glossydot boxes, I am out of here unless there is a consistent complete 180 in curation in the meantime.

 

People new to subscription boxes ask for box recommendations and I have been leaving Glossybox off my list I send over lately. Which is funny since according to that article word of mouth seems to be their best marketing tool.

 

ETA- I wonder if they read this if they will ask me to unsub :P

    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
