GLOSSYBOX’s “The Manrepeller Winter Survival Kit”

glossybox

GLOSSYBOX hit it out of the park with this month’s Winter Survival Kit, a collaboration with Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller.

I was so happy with the selection of goodies in this box; from moisturizers to a full size bottle of OPI, this box was fun to sort through and use and sample, and there is definitely a product I plan to buy soon!

I’ve included mini reviews on each product in my box, but here’s a shot of the box as I opened it!

I love the packaging, so thoughtful and pretty. Here’s a note from Leandra:

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara

 This mascara really gave me the kind of coverage I look for – I don’t want to clump my lashes together, or have clumps hanging on my lashes - I want something to coat my lashes and make them look plentiful and long!

Check it out, before:

I wore this without any eye makeup; I love it!

I’m on board with Liquid Sand.

Narciso Rodriguez for Her Eau De Toilette Spray

glossybox NR

This perfume is perfect for me, but a little goes a long way. I need to buy a full size of this, or maybe ask for it for my birthday! The scent is musc, refined with a floral facet that develops gently and slowly, according to the GLOSSYBOX literature. It rounds out into warm tones of sun-kissed skin and sensuality. This definitely smells like the kind of perfume I like to wear for nights out, special events and weddings!

Living Proof Prime Style Extender

glossybox LP 2

Ever since I had my hair extensively highlighted blonde, the texture has changed. I was looking for something that would soften it up a bit, and make styling it straight easy.

This primer worked great, and I didn’t have to put a comb through my hair to touch up the style once all night:

I had bedhead the next morning, but I put it up in a ponytail holder and didn’t even bother with my customary small dusting of dry shampoo.

Vincent Longo Lipstain SPF 15 Lipstick in Americana

This lipstick is a gorgeous red. The formula was very glossy and easy to apply. It lasted well through sipping water and eating a meal, although I would touch it up after a meal. With flash, then without:

Le Metier De Beaute Replenishing Daily Solution

I don’t know if I’ve ever sampled a beauty product this expensive before. But it smells amazing; it has a nice scent, and it’s a rich creme that blends into your skin light as air. It features Syntoc Actif.

Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum

The smell of this reminded me a little bit of a salad I get from the Japanese Hibachi restaurant; so I checked the ingredients and sure enough, there’s ginger in it too! It smells so organic and this also felt light as air on my skin.

SO, did you receive this GLOSSYBOX, too?! What do you think of the products inside?! I am IN LOVE! I’m trying to make my Le Metier De Beaute creme go a long way, and loving the confidence my glossy red lips with the Vincent Longo Lipstick give me!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this box, and the products. Also, I’ve read The Man Repeller before. Have you? I find the concept funny, and I am now promptly stressing out about what two outfits I have picked out to wear for the days I’ll be at New York Fashion Week! LOL However, I am excited to bring you some backstage access to what some designers are doing for nails, makeup and hair!

What do you think? Winter Survival Kit – yay or nay?!
