Glossybox April 2012 - give it another try!?

 ...surprise? surprise!

Hey sweeties -
after waiting for soooo long the glossybox of April arrived Meeow mansion...
I must admit that I was on the verge of discontinuing the subscription because I felt it so impertinently that Glossybox didn't shine in front of their customers a price increase and again with late delivery.
GB charged my account already weeks before delivery and then the April box came to me in May....
but, however, hey, Glossybox - there you turned the corner just in time - nevertheless, the package has tuned me again very mildly... I will stay at my subscription for one more month....

So let's see what nice stuff they sent me:

1. BM Beauty Blusher (Original size 4g - € 9,60)
I must confess - I am a bit addicted to little plastic pots ... I love eyeshadow and blush samples in it.
This blush in "peachy glow" is 100% mineral pigmented, the color is highly pigmented intensive and shiny and you can use it also on your eyes and lips - I tested it on my arm... and I love this blush! Its shimmering and is a bit iridescent (gives you a fresh and sunny look). You can blend it perfectly and the light apricot color is perfect for my pale pale paaaale cheeks ^^
the blush on my arm - I added a bit more to show you the nice glowing effect

2. Cosline - Kayal pen in aubergine (Original Size 0,3 ml 9€)
Hmmm... Kayal - you always make little goth girls happy with kayal :D And this is no black one - it's a really really dark aubergine - I love that color and I think I need an eyeshadow in that great color. The kayal itself is very precisely to apply, the lines are easy to draw and the color is very longlasting and waterproof. It convinces me. :)
The kayal on my wrist - its almost black but with a hint of aubergine....
3. Eubos - Hyaluron Repair & Protect LSF 20 (Original Size 50 ml, 24,90€)
This cream is stuffed with vitamine C and Q10 for evenly skin and prevent skin aging. It smells nice like babylotion and its very rich. But its not to my liking - I have oily skin and it feels on my face like a greasy film. Nothing I wouldnt buy... ;)

4. Illamasqua Sheer lipgloss (Original Size 7 ml, € 15,50)
I always wanted to try the Illamasqua glosses - but the first impression of this color "Temper" was: whoa - Tomato!!! O.o I wouldn't buy this color in a shop - cause I always thought, tomato-red doesnt fit to me. But Illamasqua disabused me: on my lips this color turns into a perfect classic retro red with a light orange pinch in it...
The gloss itself is very high pigmented, long lasting and feels smooth on my lips. Its well-covering and bright. And the little tube is easy to handle.
no - thats not ketchup... its a gloss!
ketchup lips ^^
5. KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow dry (Original Size 200 ml, 18€)
With this product, blow-dry is quicker (50% time-saving) - it smoothens the hair and protects against blowing-heat. It smells very chemically but I will try it the next time I have to blow my hair (I don't prefer hairdryers).

6. Thomas Sabo Charm Kiss Eau de Parfum (Original Size 50 ml, 49,90€)
Hmmmm delicious! I love that fragrance - its the right stuff for Meeow the old sweet tooth ^^ - dark chocolate, strawberries, plum, champagne, rose... it smells like the perfect dessert. Its one of those perfumes I would surely buy! It's on my christmas wishlist now ^^

Summarizing I can say, that this Glossybox was very adequate, no dead loss and high quality products. 

I hope, Glossybox will maintain the quality of their boxes - they have a very wonky status for me - but I will wait and see what the next boxes bring to me...

Did you make any experiences with these boxes?

I am a little Guerilla....

 ...and it's the fault of my pharmacist!

Yes - I don't tell any crap - My pharmacist get me hooked on it!
Weeks ago - I went to the pharmacy to buy some Chinosol-tablets - not for me! For potting-soil at home which turned mouldy. I told that to the pharamcist and he gave me this brown clayey-dry ball... What's this funny thing? Looks a bit like a forbidden drug... no! It's a flower bomb!
Flower Bombs - also known as Seed Balls or earth balls, consist of a variety of different flower seeds rolled within a ball of clay and you use them for seed bombing!
Seed bombing is a technique of introducing vegetation to land by throwing or dropping these seed balls. Often, seed bombing projects are done with arid or off-limits (for example, privately-owned) land - guerilla gardening!

The pharmacist told me, I can throw it anywhere in the city where green is needed (woah - "my" pharmacist - a little hippy ^^) - but I can also try this bomb at home - I choose the last opinion and now I am waiting until the first flowers shoot to the daylight on my balcony.

The next seed bomb - I promise - is for the puplic use! ;)
