Review: September 2012 Glossybox│USA

september glossybox 4

Glossybox is getting better every month! Last box was amazing, themed Pure Luxury see my review here. And I thought that box wouldn't top the others but it this one kinda did. I have tested all products and I'm very pleased with each one. The theme this month is Fall Forward and it includes 3 FULL SIZE products! If you're not familiar with Glossybox: it's a monthly suscription to get deluxe beauty samples for $21.00. If you want to sign up, click here.

The full size products are the OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel ($.30.00), the Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream ($.29.99) and the Glossybox Lipstick in Glossy Pink ($.14.00). I'm really excited about full size products, not only because they top the price of the box itself, but because if I really like them (and I do!) they'll last a while. So, onto the review of each product!

1. Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream in shade No. 23 ($.29.99 for 50ml): Missha is one of Korea's original BB cream creators and it offers a novel skincare concept, which lightens skin tone by healing visible wrinkles and blemishes with excellent skin cover. This BB Cream is so different from others I've tried. The texture is very thin, but it provides amazing coverage! I was worried about the colour at first, because I have yellow undertones. No. 23 seems greyish and with a lot of pink in it, but it blends heavenly. There are 5 shades available and No.23 works well with medium skin tones. The BB cream provides a natural looking coverage but still covers blemishes noticeably. It's not greasy and my T-zone stayed matte all day.
2. OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel ($.30.00 for 1.6 oz): This gel is like a primer, but better. It has a lightweight texture and it helps control oil on the skin. It contains micro particles which are specifically designed with co-polymer technology that permanently traps 6 times their own volume in oil on the skin. It smells very minty, but it also fades away very quickly. As soon as I applied it my face felt refreshed and amazingly matte. I have combination skin, so my T-zone tends to get oily through the day. This gel improved this problem area, still at the end of the day my nose got a bit shiny but less than without this product. I will be using this regularly to see if there's any improvements.
3.  GK Hair Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner ($.20.00 for 10.1 fl oz): The shampoo is free of sodium chloride and harsh sulfates and the conditioner is enriched with natural seed oils and plant extract. Both are nourishing, and my hair was really, really hydrated, soft and shiny after I washed it. Both have an amazing scent and I'm considering on ordering the full size!
4. Glossybox Lipstick in shade Glossy Pink ($.14.00 for 4g):  Glossybox teamed up with Kryolan, a professional makeup brand and developed an exclusive moisture rich lipstick. It's a medium pink with a glossy finish. It's very moisturizing and long lasting, I love it! 

Here's a swatch: (also wearing Mattifying Gel and BB Cream)
