Glossy Weddings

Glossybox have released a Limited Edition Wedding Box in collaboration with 'Wedding Magazine' which brings you the essentials you need to achieve a flawless look for any wedding, whether you're the bride or a guest. Sadly, I'm not getting married, nor am I attending any weddings but this box called out to me for a couple of reasons:
1) On your wedding day you are going to be using the BEST beauty products you have ever found and I knew that each product would have been carefully selected to be included in this box
2) I knew this box contained a lot of make-up items and if you read any of my beauty box reviews, almost every month I moan that there isn't enough make-up items included

Glossybox really made an effort to make this box special, you can tell just from the packaging - a simple white box with the classic Glossybox logo and inside the products are wrapped in a gorgeous lace effect tissue paper tied together with a beautiful ribbon with the word 'yes' printed on it in different languages. 

Once you untie the ribbon and unwrap the tissue paper you are greeted with flurry of pink rose petals, something I was not expecting and it brought a smile to my face... It's the little things....

The first product I pulled out was the NYX One Night in Morocco palette which includes 8 eye-shadows to create the perfect matte smokey eye, an eye-shadow base and four lip colours. This is a really cute little palette, I love how compact it is and the fact it has a nice big mirror on the front. It would be perfect for travelling. The white eye-shadow pan does fall out every time I open it so perhaps not the best quality product, but it's easy enough to stick that in and for a £15 palette I can't complain.I just wish NYX products were easier to find in stores!

Next up is this Bellapierre Volumizing Mascara. I've received a few other products from this brand in other beauty boxes and have always been really impressed with them so this excited me. I haven't tried it yet but the brush looks good and I'm a mascara junkie so this will have a happy home in my stash! This retails at £19.99

The perfect wedding nail colour was also included, Beauty Bird 'Yes I do!' Firstly, the name is spot on for a wedding and the colour is really pretty whilst remaining understated so as not to attract too much attention away from the important things, such as the ring and the dress. The colour is described as 'apricot-rose' and it retails for £10.30

Next we have this BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector which seems to be a multi-tasking wonder product! It works as a light-diffusing primer under make-up and can also be used as highlighter on your cheek and brow bones. The perfect product to give you that 'inner glow' on your big day. I'm really excited to test this out as I love these kind of products. This is a 15ml sample, and a 50ml tube retails for £33

It's hard to pick a favourite product when we have such a great selection, but if I had to I would probably choose this MODELCO Lip Duo which is a double ended lipstick and lip gloss with a built-in mirror on the side. Genius! The lipstick shade is an absolutely perfect 'my lips but better' shade, it feels lovely and nourishing on the lips and it is honestly the best smelling lipstick I have ever tried. The lip gloss is just as perfect, the shade complements the lipstick perfectly and it is not sticky at all! This product retails for £26

The final proper product included is this NAOBAY Moisturizing Peeling - I wasn't exactly sure what this was at first. The name doesn't give too much away but it seems to be a facial milk with natural peeling particles from the Acai palm tree. It is described as 'face peel' that gently exfoliates the skin, removing surface cells and impurities while reducing the appearance of fine lines. This sounds interesting but a little scary so I'll be searching for some reviews before testing this one out. This retails for £17.95

Finally, included as a little surprise extra was these.... I honestly don't know what to call them...? They have nothing written on them or about them but they are basically pink bows with clips on the back. From the image I can only assume they are designed to be clipped onto your shoes... A strange idea, I personally think it seems very childish and definitely not something I would do on my wedding day but each to their own! 

And that's everything! A longer and more picture heavy post than usual with these kind of boxes but everything was just so pretty I wanted to do it justice! This box is limited edition and you can purchase it here for £25 plus P&P. This box has a value of £99 so it is a really good offer. You don't need a Glossybox subscription for this one as it's a special edition and I think it's worth getting your hands on!

  1. Oh wow, what a fabulous box. I love those little shoe embellishments, absolutely brilliant idea!

    I shall be thinking about whether to get this or not, what a great selection of make up you got!

    1. The main reason I bought it was the fact it included a lot of make-up items, I hate it when beauty boxes are all skincare as I'm a lot less experimental in that department x

  2. Fabulous box - I really love some of the items that are included

    1. I absolutely love it, especially the lip duo! x

  3. Looks like a great box, hopefully on pay day they still have some as my sister is getting married and this will be a nice surprise! Jess x

    1. Oh this would be a lovely little gift! :) Fingers crossed they're still available x

  4. wow fabulous box all those items are amazing x
