Glossybox International Style Box for March!

I had such a great experience with the February Glossybox collab with Man Repeller, that I was stoked to check out this month’s box, themed “International Style.”

My box came with the following items:

  • Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Soap; Full Size, $30, 5.3 oz.
  • Da Vinci Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in Wild Lilac, Full Size $15, .06 oz.
  • Lisi Eye Definition Cream Eyeliner in Jet, Full Size $10, .14 oz.
  • Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask, Full Size $6, .98 oz.
  • Nail Rock Nail Wraps, Full Size, $8, full set.

Bvlgari Eau Parfumee Au The Blanc Soap

This soap smells SO GOOD. I lather up my loofah with it, or just use it against my skin. It leaves such a pleasant fragrance behind, it’s strong enough to stay with you after you’ve dressed and left the house, but not in an overpowering way. Also, my skin felt clean without the moisture-zapping that sometimes happens with soap. My skin feels smooth after I use this. LOVE!

Da Vinci Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in Wild Lilac

This is recommended as a cheek or under eyebrow highlighter to give you a subtle glow, but the color was so pretty I used it as my main eye shadow one day.

I used it over Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed. It stayed all day and I even got a couple compliments on my eyes that day!

Lisi Eye Definition Cream Eyeliner

This cream eyeliner is well-pigmented and easy to apply. Check it out:

I used it with Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed one day.

This will be an awesome liner to use for cat eyes, right?! It’s smudge-proof, and it held up pretty well throughout a long work day!

Missha Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Hydro Gel Mask

It says “…innovative formula of full vital Snail Slime Extract.”

My gut reaction? EW.

This mask is apparently an Asian beauty secret, and rumored to have a huge celebrity following.

I have not opened it yet. I’m not going to lie, I’m totally turned off by the snail slime ingredient. But I will get up the courage to try this, and I will review it in a separate post. Once I finally try it, I owe it that much!

Nail Rock Nail Wraps

I received a full set of Nail Rock Nail Wraps in Black and White Stripes.

I decided that I wanted to wear them with a color, not just all the wraps at once. I used Ciate Speed Dial to complement:

I tried to follow the instructions, and stretched them over the nail, trying to eliminate bubbles and lifts, but I don’t know if its my nail bed or nail shape, or what, but they didn’t like to play well with my nails. I used them on my thumbs, ring fingers and pinkies. And this picture shows them with less than 24 hours of wear – I don’t even know where the tip of the ring finger went, and then the pinky tip is lifting.

I took these off after one day of wear and when I lifted them off gently as directed, it looked like it took pieces of the top layer of my nail with it. I still have decals left, so I might give them another try. But I don’t know if I will buy these in the future.

So there you go. My March Glossybox. What an INCREDIBLE value. Did you see anything that intrigues you?! And what do you think about the snail mask?! I’m nervous to try it but if it is as amazing as I hear, then I may never turn back, either.

    Nail strips are always hard for me too! They look really cool though!
