March 2012 Glymm Box - Overview and Review


 This is month two of a trial period (my self imposed one - I want to keep all 4 boxes going for 3 months before I decide which ones I will keep).  Glymm, as seen below, comes in a pretty pink outer box and a pink "shoe box" on the inside.  The items are enclosed in tissue paper and enclosed with a branded ribbon.

As expected, there was a card that lists all of the items in the box.  Plus I received a bonus one I guess.

Listing of what is in this months' box
 The items are:
  • Anastastia Hydrafull Gloss in Sorbet
  • Ma.sam Magic Fini
  • Nu Me Feather Hair Extensions
  • Ocean Nail Polish in Pink Satina
  • Lise Watier in Flash Lift Radiance Vial
You can kind of see everything


All of the items

Feather hair accessory
 The Nu Me Feather Hair accessory I received was in red.  It was an interesting addition, but I am neither a hair accessory person or have anything to use to attach it to my hair.  Oh well, it may be useful to a friend or a niece.

Received a Full size and is priced at $25




Ocean nail polish in Pink Satina
Nail polish
The nail polish is from a company called OCEAN.  I could not find any information (or scarce little) online about this company.  I will be testing the nail polish this weekend and will let you know my thoughts on it.

Cost of the Polish is $12.

Lise Watier Flash List Radiance Vial
I think this Lisa Watier was a last minute add in this month. You apply it before you moisturize in the morning or on top of your makeup when going out to give your skin a boost.  Again, I think I will do a test of a selection of samples and post on it with my thoughts.

I received 1 vial.  The full size is 7 vials and is approximately $27

Masam Magic Fini

The M.asam Magic Fini is at first glance a type of foundation/concealer.  The shade they provided me was quite a bit darker than my skin but I have not tried it to see how it blends out. We'll see.
Sample size was 5ml, Full size is 30ml @ $38.




The last item is the Hydrafull Gloss from Anastasia Beverley Hills.  The advertisement mentions nourishing of lips.  Two things struck me:

1)  The gloss is very small
2) The applicator is like a spatula, not a brush or little deer foot.

The colour I received was Sorbet which is ultra vivid Pink in the container but on the lips is much more subtle.  It is not gloopy like many glosses and stays put for a while (post scone and venti coffee?)

Sample size was 1ml, Full size is 2.2ml @ $27.

Anastasia Hydrafull Gloss in Sorbet
Soooo.... My thoughts on this month's offering from Glymm.

Hair accessory - Meh
Nail polish - Hooray
Flash Lift Radiance Vials - Hooray
Magic Fini - Neutral
Gloss - Hooray

3 Hoorays out of 5 means I am pretty pleased.  I am cautiously optimistic about this company's offerings.  One more month to go.

I think I will rate all my future boxes as follows:

Hooray
Neutral
Meh
Yuck

What do you think?

  1. I think the M Asam Fini is a BB Cream, I have heard good things... give it a try and do a review?

    I only subscribe to Glossy Box, am on a waiting list for Top Box... hoping to receive my first Glossy Box in the next week or two. Looking forward to reading more of your reviews :)
