glossybox [september]

now this was a good month! i'll use every.single.thing in this box and i actually love it all. and it's worth way more than the $15 charge. the theme was 'red carpet ready', so everything tied together nicely.

b.kamins maple body lotion -  i don't smell the maple, though that doesn't bother me. i agree with others who say it actually smells more like baby powder, which i think is great. it's a nice lotion; fast absorbing, made my hands nice and soft, and plus, it's canadian. a 180ml bottle is $41, but we got a sample size of 12ml.
b.kamins lip balm spf 20 - nice sample size of this lip balm, no particular smell, no color, just good ole lip moisturizer. 15g is $21 dollars, but our sample size was 4g.
wella professionals mirror polish shine serum - a full size product worth $16.99! i've yet to use this (i've gotten so many hair products from glossybox that i won't be buying anything new for months and months and months!), but i don't really care for the smell. it's a smell that's pretty common in hair stuff i find; a little bit floral, a little sweet, a little strong. not my favorite.
dove cleartone - i use dove and secret interchangeably, so without trying it yet, i know i'll like it. you can never have enough deodorant! we got a sample size, but a full size goes for $3.99-$4.99
nyx cosmetics; the crimson amulet collection (limited edition) - ok, so this is awesome. it's worth $25 and full of makeup! the palette holds 24 eye shadows, 5 blushes, 1 highlighter, 4 lip colors, 1 eye shadow base, and 1 black liquid eye liner. i've tried some of the lip colors and eye shadows, and i'm impressed. the colors are quite nice and there's a wide variety to choose from. i would never buy something like this for myself because i usually find that i wouldn't wear most of the colors that come in the palettes, but i actually like so many of these shades.

the shine serum and makeup palette alone is worth $42. i'm so glad dylan insisted i keep getting glossybox, even when i wanted to cancel to save the money, because it makes me stupid happy every month to open it. plus, i haven't had to spend money on cleansers, moisturizers, shampoo, and hair products for the last 6 months. so in a way, it's worth it. win.

I just got mine this week and I was so stoked to see the palette. I agree that I wouldn't buy one myself, but I lvoe the idea of getting to try out a bunch of new looks.
