Okay, my lovelies, this is an “unofficial” sneak peek but word on the street is one of these products will be included in the November “Girl Meets Glitter” bag. It’s a veritable feast for the eyes, and I can’t wait to get my greedy little hands on this bag…

GLOSSYBOX NOVEMBER 2014: SNEAK PEEK #2

Published November 3, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

What a way to start this box-aholic’s week, with 2 sneak peeks, first one courtesy of Ipsy and now one courtesy of Glossybox. Glossybox already released their first sneak peek last week, so this is sneak peek #2.

Without further ado:

glossyboxsp2nov

Hmmmm…I’m not exactly overwhelmed with the sneak peek, not because I don’t love nail lacquer and not because I don’t love me some pink, but…well, we’re officially into Fall and I would have preferred a darker hue. While a custom match to the box color is a fabulous idea, I kind of wish they would have saved it for maybe the March box when Spring is in the air. C’est la vie!

And to refresh your memory (and so you don’t have to run all over the blog looking for sneak peek #1 from Glossybox, here it is:

Our friends at Ipsy have just released it’s first official sneak peek at the November “Girl Meets Glitter” bag…and it’s a teaser of the actual bag. I’m all for anything sparkly and pink, and if this bag is indeed silver glitter with pink trim, I’m going to be one happy subscriber this month.

And there we have it…sounds like November is shaping up to be a banner month for Ipsy subscribers.

GLOSSYBOX UK: NOVEMBER 2014 FIRST SNEAK PEEK!!!

Published October 31, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

And again irony reigns supreme on this lovely All Hallowed Eve. After receiving my October Glossybox this morning, they have now released their first official sneak peek of what I’m told is the UK November box…and it looks promising, my British lovelies!

10339720_10152830227794586_1920835222044685688_n

Guaranteed in each November box is a full-sized Burt’s Bees lip shine, as well as a full-sized Lollipops Paris kohl eyeliner.

OoOoOoOoOo…I’m excited already for you UK subscribers. Nothing gets my little black heart pounding like the description “full size,” so I’ll definitely be looking forward to an equally spectacular USA November box!

GLOSSYBOX OCTOBER 2014 UNBOXING: KEEP IT OR KICK IT?

Published October 31, 2014 by thebeholdingeye

Happy Halloween from our casa to your casa. Don’t forget today is the big day for the Rafflecopter drawing of the winners for the Big October Beauty Giveaway, so stay tuned!

The second box we had the pleasure of unboxing today was the October offering from Glossybox. Glossybox did pretty well last month, what with the OCC Lip Tar and a few other goodies, so we were curious to see what this month might bring and whether it was perhaps worth keeping or kicking it to the curb for the new year.

Let’s see what awesomeness the October box might (or might not) bring.

glossyoct1

Well, look what we have here…Not in the actual Glossybox but in the shipping box is a $40 coupon for Hello Fresh, which is one of those trendy businesses that creates recipes, gathers ingredients, and delivers them to you for preparing the chosen meal in your own kitchen. Okay, this is BOMB. Seriously, if I lived in a big city, I’d be all over this baby; however, living out in the middle of orange groves with the nearest “big” (snort) city about 50 miles away, I’m somehow guessing Casa Beholding Eye will not be in their delivery range. I do, however, fully intend to check and put this to good use if by some miracle of transportation we are in their delivery range.

RETAIL VALUE: $40.00

glossyoct2

Glossybox has the prettiest boxes, really aesthetically pleasing and sturdy, too. Very simple and classy.

Now for the important stuff…the contents!

glossyoct3

Well, this looks promising…anything that starts with a full-sized Tarte product is probably going to be a winner in Casa Beholding Eye. Woot!!!

glossyoct8

This is the Tarte Power Pigment in Flush. It’s by Tarte. It’s a lip product. It’s full-sized. It’s a home run. Need we say more?

RETAIL VALUE: $24.00.

glossyoct6

Next up is a full-sized (way to go, Glossybox, we’re impressed, and that ain’t no easy feat!) bottle of Proganix Repair Reparative Oil + Anti-Breakage serum. This product claims to contain all sorts of awesomeness to treat dry, damaged hair, repair split ends, and “addresses” frizziness. Hmmm. “Addresses” frizziness? Is that anything like actually “controlling” frizziness? If so, we’re in…In for a penny, in for a pound.

RETAIL VALUE: $11.99.

glossyoct7

Next by Nails Inc is Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat. Okay, we’re seriously looking forward to trying this. If it works well, this has the potential of doubling our nail lacquer collection because matte colors can look vastly different from high gloss colors. And this product is also full-sized. Love it!

RETAIL VALUE: $10.00

glossyoct5

Vince Camuto…Widely renowned for his UH-MAZING shoes, it’s nice to see he’s branching out into other fashion arenas. This fragrance, Amore, is in the prettiest little bottle and, although sample sized, is just perfect. Bonus points: It smells DIVINE.

RETAIL VALUE: Approximately $10.00.

glossyoct10

And the last item in the box is something we’ve been curious about trying. It’s a full paper face mask…you know, being Halloween, so you can rock the Michael Myers look whilst beautifying your skin. This one is by Sesha and it is their Cell-White Brightening Mask. It says it is designed to refresh and invigorate dull-looking skin with brightening ingredients like mulberry extract and vitamin C. Sounds good to us…BOO!!!!!

RETAIL VALUE: $9.00.

TOTAL RETAIL VALUE: Approximately $105 (for which subscribers pay $21/month)

Okay, we’re impressed with Glossybox this month, no ifs, ands or buts about it. There’s not a single product in here we won’t use (and probably love). No question about it, we’ll be keeping Glossybox around for another month to see what November holds.
