October Glymm Box


I've been such a lackadaisical blogger lately, and there is really no great reason other than a lack of focus. I have some great products just waiting for their moment in the spotlight, and I got a few more over the weekend. I didn't particularly need them, but they were on sale, and I totally wanted them. A great combo, in my opinion.


I missed a day of checking my mail, so I was excited to see that another of my subscription boxes had arrived when I checked it this afternoon. I also found my Julep items and some Skin Food goodies I ordered, but you'll see that stuff a bit later. This month's Glymm Box provided a pretty stellar line up, including not one, but two full size items.


Lise Watier Lip Kiss Crayon in Rouge Flamenco- full size
I haven't used any Lise Watier products, but I am looking forward to trying this lip crayon out. Unfortunately, reds aren't something I usually wear. I love them on other people, but I think they look weird on me. This pencil is super smooth and really pigmented. It retails for $18 and is apparently one of the brand's best sellers.


Princepessa Bacio Lip Balm- full size
The second full size item in this month's selection, is a sweetly scented lip balm. It wears more like a gloss, as it is very shiny and light, but it does moisturize as well. I couldn't find a specific source to find out just what it was supposed to smell like, but to me it is almost like an almond cookie. It smells great, but has no taste and wears off rather quickly. Retail price is $11.


Caudalie Premier Cru Cream
I have been getting a ton of Caudalie samples lately, I just gave my mom a bunch of them and now this. The little description on the Glymm menu stats that this is a is a daily moisturizer that provides radiance, anti aging properties, firming and nourishment, but at the retail price of $150 for the full size 3.2g I can't see myself purchasing it.


Blinc Mascara
I was excited to see this when I opened the box! I've wanted to try it ever since I passed my last sample on to a friend and she raved about how great it was. This mascara is interesting as it creates tubes around your lashes instead of just "painting" them.


And of course, the treat- a little bottle of Jelly Belly jelly beans in festive orange and black. The black ones (licorice) aren't a fave of mine, but the orange ones were tasty. I have been saving all of the little bottles and I think I'm going to fill them with glitter and line them up on my desk for a touch of... well glitter!

Anyone subscribe to Glymm Box? What did you get in your selection?
