Glossybox February 2012 Review

This February GlossyBox contains a lot of daily essentials - shower products, nails and makeup - which I do appreciate! It's so much better than having all many other products I would never use. Like many other bloggers who have reviewed this month's GlossyBox, I am very pleased with mine. Now lets see what my box actually contains...

DUWOP Venom Gloss in Buttercup
DUWOP combines subtle tinted lip gloss with DuWop's Lip Venom to create Venom Gloss. I have the shade in Buttercup, which is a semi-sheer peachy nude shade with golden sparkles. It is a very wearable, beautiful colour. Once worn, the Lip Venom causes a warm tingling sensation on your lips (chemical irritation) as it starts to plump them. On my lips it tends to make them a bit redder, but rather unevenly, but can be corrected by wearing a more pigmented lippie underneath. It is a bit sticky too and it lasts quite long on the lips. Swatches below. Not for the faint of lips!

IMPRESS Press-on Manicure
Broadway Nails never cease to amaze me with their nail inventions! Impress by Broadway Nails is the revolutionary way to apply polish - Simply peel off, press on, and done. Each pack comes in 24 nails of 12 sizes to make sure you have at least 1 set of nails that fit your nail size. It claims to last for a week. I haven't tried this yet as I don't have the opportunity to wear fancy nails for hospital-based things, but with the three easy steps it takes to use this, it looks promising!

AWAPUHI BY PAUL MITCHELL Wild Ginger Treatment Oil
Smooth and seal parched hair with natural oils and the hydrating Awapuhi extract. Absorbs easily imparting a soft, silky texture and rich shine effect. It comes with a pump. It is non-sticky but not overtly runny, and definitely lightweight. The scent is subtle and not overpowering. Best applied on damp hair before blow drying, but still works to hydrate my superdry hair ends. I am in-love with this product!!

BM BEAUTY Pure Mineral Eyeshadow in Dusty Road
This pure mineral eyeshadow in Dusty Road is a stunning pigmented shimmery light-medium gold colour. On my lids it mimics the 'wet' effect because of its sheen. It is extremely flattering. The powder also feels so light on your skin that you wont even notice it was there! It comes in a loose powder form, which I tend not to like as it can get a bit messy to use. I wish it came in pan form! It is made cruelty free and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans. See swatch below. I have previously reviewed other fantastic BM Beauty products - foundations, eyeshadows and blush.

COMO SHAMBHALA Invigorate Shower Gel
A revitalising blend of essential oils that puts you in a perfectly uplifted mood. This contains a subtly sweet refreshing blend of Eucalyptus, Geranium, Lavender and Peppermint. Such a gorgeous relaxing combination of scents, I love it!
