May Glossy Box - The 2nd Birthday Box | First Impressions

Firstly Happy 2nd Birthday Glossy Box, it doesn't seem five minutes since I was writing about the 1st Birthday Box! I am actually so excited about this months box, most of the items were full size and all stuff that I will use! Also the paper shredding matches my hair! 

Awapuhi Wild Ginger - Shine Spray
Obviously named after me (wild ginger!). My hair has been so dry recently (even my Dad commented and he is bald!) so I'm hoping this will make my hair luscious once again. 

Jelly Pong Pong - Fairy Lashes Mascara 
This promises to me long lasting and hardwearing. I am wearing it today and I found that it didn't look different from the current mascara I am using (Rimmel Day2Night) but we'll see!

Collection - Fast Stroke Eyeliner
Everyone uses this eyeliner, however I have never tried it *smaks wrist* I use Constance Carroll, however after trying this Collection one I have found it has a very similar (probably the same!) formula as the CC one. It works great, hasn't smudged so far and the applicator is easy to use

Beautiful Movements Cosmetics - Prime and Create Mixing Medium
I must admit I am not "there" yet with creating cream eyeshadows and mixing makeup! Will someone please explain? I think I am going to use this as a primer or mix it with foundation to see if it does give you an "airbrushed affect" as claimed. 

Headline Colours - Poolside Party Nail Varnishes
I've never heard of this brand but I always like getting nail varnishes - seeing as they're almost always full sized. The colours in the leaflet were really summery and "poolside" however I got a sparkly grey-black colour which I think would be more for winter. Still looking forward to using this!

Glossy Box Nail Files
I was sat for at least 5 minutes trying to work out WHAT these were. I am so stupid! But these are such a cute addition and such a great idea, even though I never file my nails because I bite them! So cute though

Green and Blacks Dark Chocolate
Glossy Box decided to give out extra treats for their "old friends" and apparently I come under that category as I have been subscribed for over a year. Thank you! Dark chocolate is my favourite. 


Also today I added a little poll on my blog, it's just for fun, I like to hear feedback and would appreciate it if you would have your opinion! Please vote!


  1. Great post! Thank you♥

  2. Everything seems so lovely! Here in Greece the best box is Cherrybox. It contains a lot of expensive brands! I love the fact that your box contained basically make-up stuff!

  3. I don't have a beauty box subscription anymore but this looks like a good box!
    Now following your cool blog, xx


All your questions, comments and feedback are greatly appreciated, thank you. If you have any further questions please email me at or tweet me at @yentruocfarrow because I will get back to you sooner
