GLOSSYBOX + Byrdie Collaboration

This month GLOSSYBOXcollaborated with Byrdie - your online destination for all things beauty, from celebrity makeup secrets to the latest products. Here's what I received in my box:

"Powered by tarte’s proprietary triple black complex, this longwear, vitamin-infused formula emphasizes length and volume while conditioning lashes for a dramatic look that won’t dry out, flake or budge. Features custom-engineered, dual-molded brush boosts even the skinniest lashes for an exaggerated, voluminous look. First, the shorter, denser side of the brush delivers the optimal amount of mascara to volumize and coat each lash perfectly, then the longer, firmer side of the brush lengthens and separates for maximum volume without clumping." I wasn't particularly a fan of the two sided brush. It said to rotate as you brush through your lashes but I wasn't successful at that. I also wore it all day and found by the end of the night that my lashes were drying out and flaking.

Halloween came early - lol!

"Packed with nutrients and peptides such as Argireline™, Vitamins B, C, and E, and botanical extracts, this anti-wrinkle mask not only smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, but also calm the skin from environmental stresses to rejuvenate it back to a youthful glow." I enjoy using facial masks. My skin definitely felt rejuvenated and firmed after using. I'd try it again even though it says for "mature skin."

I'm not parfume expert so I can't speak too intelligently about this product except that I liked the smell. It contains green tea so it wasn't as strong smelling as others. Notes include: Italian Bergamot, Tunisian Bitter Orange, Spanish Orange Blossom, Ceylon Cardamom, Jamaican Pepper, Russian Coriander, Bulgarian Rose, Egyptian Jasmine, Green Tea, Smoked Wood.

"Is a universal daily moisturizer proven to provide 24 hours of significant moisture. It is formulated with a proprietary Super 7 Complex specifically designed to minimize and prevent visible signs of aging, deliver intense hydration, and boost radiance. It is further enriched with maca root extract, noted for enhancing luminosity." I always enjoy using Fresh products and this moisturizer was no exception. Not sure I'd shell out $42 for the full sized product though.

"We have created an exquisite blend of oils to soften and nourish, including virgin coconut oil, jojoba oil, rosehip oil, castor oil and sweet almond oil. These oils provide the extra staying power for the salve, keeping your lips glossy and maintaining the color." I'm not a fan of the color choice but I did like the gloss. It kept my lips moisturized.

What did you get in your GLOSSYBOX this month?
