November Glossybox

 I’m a little late posting…but better late than never I always say! =) Here is what I got in my November Glossybox:

“It’s only November but the streets are already teeming with black coats and gloves and scarves, and some days the chill creeps through the air and seeps through our sweaters. While we love our leather and cashmere, we’re equally enamored by flowing silk and delicate black lace. This month, we’re inspired by holiday romance—think gorgeous matte skin paired with bold and dramatic shades on the eyes and lips. After all, it’s okay to indulge and be a little girly sometimes.” – GLOSSYBOX

Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Cream: Formulated with the roots, berries, and water of rare five-year-old Korean ginseng, this treatment stimulates cell regeneration to revitalize and ultimately restore youthful looking skin. Additional Korean herbs such as milk-vetch and white mulberry promote an ageless complexion, as jojoba, avocado, mango seed, and sunflower oils moisturize and condition for soft, smooth skin. My thoughts: I’ve only used this once so don’t know long term benefits but I have to say the scent is a bit strong for my taste. I could smell it all day which in this case was not a good thing.

Emite Makeup Micronized Eye Shadow – Dams: Emite’s oil-free Micronized Eye Shadow is a highly pigmented eye shadow that can be used both wet and dry and is the perfect choice for those with sensitive eyes. The micronized pigment assures a fine, smooth and even application and avoids grainy results for the ultimate, stunning look. My thoughts: I like this shadow to use wet with an angle brush over my liner. It softens up a winged cat eye perfectly.

Mastey’s Color Protecting Leave In Oil Treatment: Combination of Certified Argan Oil, Olive Oil, and GrapeSeed Extract. This unique combination provides the maximum protection and healing for color treated and damaged hair. Argan Oil infuses hair with natural nutrients to help repair and protect color treated hair from styling heat damage; Olive Oil helps to soften and moisturize the hair and scalp, and the powerful Anti-Oxidant Grape Seed Extract helps to prolong the life of your hair color. These three ingredients in combination with Mastey’s vegetable based natural moisturizing factor, rice amino acids (rice proteins) for reconstruction, and Vitamins E, and B5 make this leave-in oil treatment the perfect solution for damaged or color treated hair. • Adds incredible softness and shine • Protects from thermal damage • Speeds up drying time • Revitalizes and repairs your hair • Made with certified argan oil • Seals the cuticle and protects color • Enriched with Omega – 3, 6 AND 9, lipids, anti-oxidants, vitamin E and natural moisture My thoughts: I am obsessed with hair products that protect against heat damage. I blow dry, straighten and curl my hair almost EVERY day and it is definitely starting to show.

The Aloe Source Jojoba Radiance Cleansing Polish: This multi-tasking, sulfate-free cleanser effectively removes makeup, oil and impurities. Gently exfoliates with a combination of jojoba microbeads and alpha and beta hydroxy acids, while nourishing aloe vera soothes skin for a healthy, radiant glow. Good for any skin type. • Sulfate-free surfactants effectively cleanse skin without stripping essential lipids. • Alpha and beta hydroxy acids break down the glue that holds skin cells together, gently exfoliating top layers of complexion-dulling skin cells and debris. • Massaging jojoba microbeads gently polish away the loosened skin cells and debris while increasing circulation, leaving skin with a healthy-looking, radiant glow. • Stabilized aloe barbadensis leaf juice – rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and enzymes – nourishes, soothes and softens the skin. • Paraben-free My thoughts: I have not given this a try yet since I’ve been using a few new products on my skin. I’m always scared I will break out when trying something new! It gets great reviews on the Glossybox site though!

Nicka K New York Professional Eyeshadow BrushAchieve professional studio quality makeup with our Nicka K professional makeup brushes that have been designed and tested by our team of makeup artists. Each of our brushes have been ergonomically designed to ease handling and facilitation for flawless results with precise application. My thoughts: YAY! YAY! YAY! I was in desperate need of another eye shadow brush since I like to have one for light colors and one for darker. Also…this is random but is it just me or does anyone else think the brush that comes with the Urban Decay Naked Palette is ridiculously hard? Like not made for shadow? This will be replacing it!
