Is it just me, or does it seem that VB shipping is getting later and later? Any way, my box is here after being shipped on Tuesday, and it's kinda exciting!
This is a cornstarch formula dry shampoo. It smells lovely (its smells a bit oriental), and from reviews i've read works great. VB subscribers either got this or a wave spray. It's nice to see a dry shampoo that isn't Batiste or Cedel in a box.
This is supposed to help dry, brittle nails. You apply over the entire nail surface and allow to dry (you can also use it over nail polish, but you only apply it to the cuticle area). My nails are terrible at the moment (i think just due to being unwell), so this is welcome. Same brand as the eye lash treatment from last month.
This is in Electra, a pearlised navy blue. Personally i don't know if i'll ever use it, it's not a colour i reach for, so i may yet pass it straight on to my sister/nieces. When swatching with a brush there was a lot of fall out, not so much with my finger, but it's something to watch out for.
We got a gem pencil from Starlooks in a box earlier this year, but in either Amethyst or Topaz. This is a gorgeous olive green (i love olive green eyeliner, it just suits me). This is something i cannot find on the Starlooks website, the card is saying it's an Ultra Gem pencil, yet there is no such thing and no such colour as 'Ultra Olive' on the website. So yeah, i don't quite know what is going on, the only place such a product exists is on the VB site.
This was the sneak peek we were given for the month, and can i say i really wasn't impressed when i saw it. Polished London nail polish was included in the very ill fated valentines GlossyBox, and that wasn't the greatest box in the world. However this is gorgeous, the picture doesn't show it but it's a gorgeous lolly pink. After trying it i'm even more impressed, it's extremely glossy and i'm hoping long wearing (watch this space people!). Definitely worth trying out.
