It’s time again to share what I got in my Glossybox!  If you’re new to Glossybox, it is a monthly beauty sample subscription service.  For $21 / month (less if you subscribe to multiple months at a time), you will receive 5 luxury beauty samples – many of which are travel sized, with 1 or 2 (and sometimes even 3!) full sized products included as well.
So let’s take a look at my February Glossybox!

Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps
Metallic Stripe
$8.00 / Full Set
These nail wraps are designed to last for 10 days – and because they’re wraps, there’s no chipping and no drying time.  Good deal!  I did just recently get a gel manicure so I’m not going to be able to try these until I take my current polish off.  But they are cute – silver, gold and black stripes.  If I had gotten this prior to New Years, I would have definitely worn them then.  I’m not sure I would use this particular design for everyday, but they seem like a fun look to try for a party.  There are many more designs too, so if you’re interested, definitely check them out!
DaVinci Cosmetics Shimmer Powder
$15.00 / 0.6 oz Full Size
I used this shimmery mineral powder to highlight my cheek- and brow-bones, and the end result was an ethereal, rose gold glow.  The powder blended right into my skin and left me feeling gorgeous, plus it is versatile enough to wear for day or night.  The shade I received (Earth) was absolutely perfect for my own skin tone, but I do believe this color would work on many different skin tones.  This can also be used as a gorgeous, shimmery eyeshadow.
Lisi  Liquid Line Eyeliner
$7.00 / 0.17 oz Full Size
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room for a second.  Because you totally didn’t notice that the box is upside down in the photo, did you?!  That’s sarcasm right there.  Well, thank you for being so much more observant than me, because when I was taking the photo I apparently had no clue.  :)
Moving on, I was excited to see that I got a liquid liner, but admittedly not so excited when I opened the box and saw the bright purple color.  I do have violet (pencil) liner, though, so I gave it a chance, and it’s actually really pretty on!  It makes my blue eyes pop.  I would wear this to a party or to girls’ night!
Evologie eSystem Duo Pack Intensive Blemish Serum &Stay Clear Cream
$15.00 / 5 ml Full Size
I don’t break out very often – I do get hormonal breakouts, but they only last a day or two – so I haven’t had a chance to try this yet (TMI???).  The Intensive Blemish Serum claims to aid in reducing current breakouts, and the Stay Clear Cream (which should be applied morning and night) claims to help keep skin clear (hence the name) by preventing future breakouts.  This sounds like it could be great for those with oily or acne prone skin.  Unfortunately, my skin is too dry and sensitive to use something like this regularly.
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Soap
$30.00 / 5.3 oz Full Size
This soap has a pretty intense perfume fragrance in the packaging, but surprisingly it’s really light in the shower.  Cleansing with this soap felt pretty luxurious, but it did leave a little bit of soapy residue.  Once out of the shower, however, my skin was soft and lightly scented.  I would buy this to put in the guest bathroom as a nice treat for people who come to visit.
