Haul: Sept-Oct Glymm Boxes + brief thoughts on each item =]

Alrighty, I'm so far behind on these but you guys know why...school is abusing me! Anyways, I haven't been experimenting with these products yet because I literally have 15 min in the morning and I'm out of the house. So instead of giving a review of each product that I got in the Glymm Box like I usually do, I will just show you just what I got and briefly talking about the ones I did try at least once.

Don't know what a Glymm Box is? Find out on my August Glymm Box or go to glymm.com


Cute packaging as always with a greeting card and product descriptions.

Try these samples and buy them at Glymm's online boutique.
You can use the points you accumulate =]
You can also give your friends your referral link so that you can earn points!
Feel free to use my referral link but of course you don't have to! But if you do, let me know because the system is messed up and they have to manually add the points for you =S

This is was I see when I opened the wrappings! =D

Oscar De La Renta-Esprit d'Oscar
Nice floral scent, but I rarely change my perfume scent.
Dislike using perfume samples that do not come in a spritz bottle =[

What's going on here? The photo won't upload the way I want it. SORRY!
John Masters Organics-Blood Orange & Vanilla Body Wash and Milk
Love how these contains organic ingredients.
Dislike the scent =S
The wash does not foam, need a lot to wash the entire body =S

The body milk has a watery consistency, absorbs fast, non-sticky =]

Vasanti-Rockies Blush
Full size item, described as a coral colour but I think it's more of a baby pink.
Very pigmented (but swatch is washed out by camera flash, SORRY!)
It has a natural sheen to it finish =]
Love it!

They always include these cute jar of Jelly Belly!!
I got Grape and Coconut flavours =D

*Sorry this picture came out bad as well, don't know why Blogger won't let me upload it up right -_-*
This is an extra goodie that Glymm included, they don't usually include extra goodies like this but I was glad because this bag is big enough to carry my long handle brushes when I travel (I don't have a brush roll =[)

Overall impression on September's Glymm Box is good, most of the products were a fail for me but the blush and makeup bag made it up for me. I loveeeee BLUSHES!! some of you may already know ;)

Now onto...

The external box they use to ship Glymm Boxes have changed, if you refer back to my August Glymm Box, you can see that it used to be pink but this doesn't matter =P

Lise Watier-Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss in Melon Twist 71430
Full size product: Love this item because I wanted a read lippie. Although this is a "gloss" it actually looks like a lipstick because its super pigmented and glides on like butter but I need to apply a lipbalm underneath or else it feels a little bit dry!

Smells so good too! Like Sour Candy! ;)
Not a fan of the glitters thought, hard to wash off.
Packaged exactly like NYX jumbo pencils.

Principessa Bacio Lip Balm
Another full size item =]
Love the consistency. Very light, smooth and moisturizing also non-sticky and easy to wash off.
Contains Vitamin E and Shea Butter =]
Clear lip gloss, no colourings at all.

Caudalie Premier Cru Cream
Cute 2ml sample, size of my pinky =)
Light texture, moisturizing, leaves skin with a healthy glow/sheen =]
Light citrus scent mixed with floral not a fan of this smell =[

Blinc Mascara in BlackI've ALWAYSSSSSSSS wanted to try BLINC products! I want to try their peel-able liner! yep, it's peel-able so you don't need to wash it off with water nor makeup remover! How cool is that?!?!
I haven't tried this yet because I have too many mascara open right now and this mascara says it only last 6 months so I'll try this later =]
This sounds very interesting as well =] Its claims: Blinc water-resistant mascara that "tubes" around your lashes that cannot run, smudge, clump or flake. A combination of lots of warm water and gentle pressure will slide the tubes effortlessly into your hand.

See how pigmented the Lise Watier "gloss" is? It's soo weird how it feels like lipgloss but acts like a lipstick and smells like CANDY! Love it!

Jelly Belly!
Orange and Black for Halloween (don't know what flavour the black is probably licorice?
but it's nasty!! no more please!)

Overall, I was impressed with this box. I loved how there were so many makeup items in this box instead of skincare/nail polishes/hair products because Luxe Boxes takes care of that!
Did any of you get the GLymm Box? How do you like them so far? I hope you love them cuz I do!! It's like getting a Christmas/Birthday present every month! =D
Hope you guys enjoyed this longggggg post =] Talk to you guys on my next post!

Don't forget to join my mini giveaway!! Click the picture below to be redirected! =)

Have a goooooooooood weekend everyone =D


Fannie said...

Hi Alx. Please let us know how you like the blinc mascara. You got great goodies in your October box except for the licorice jellies.

TheMissTwist said...

Nice! :-) cool that they put jelly beans in there too! ha ha I haven't gotten a glymm box :-( I've gotten a luxe box and it was ok nothing to much that I would regularly but I'm excited about this months luxebox! :-)

Marie said...

Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new goodies!:D

Have a wonderful weekend!:D

***** Marie *****

Fannie said...

I know what you mean. I hate wasting mascaras and only open a new tube when the current one is expiring. I'm only starting to purchase new mascaras now. Finally ran down to the last tube!

Galaxia said...

Ok, I have to check out one of these subscription programs. Looks so cool, I'm just afraid of paying for stuff I won't like LOL


Is this like US's BirchBox? Good stuff though.

TaYgAn said...

LOL it's nasty no more please ! you are funny =D I think I pretty much got the same as you! I think I would like different candies as well Jelly bellys are getting old =/
The Lise Watier crayon thingy is soooo weird!!!! but neat to try!

mizzsandychau said...

wow this box looks great! i love how they always include jelly beans haha! ohhh i have that makeup bag too! i think it was from a lancome gift set i got a while back, love it!
so poor since i got back from vacation :( i want to sign up to all these month surprises again!

G A B Y said...

The Vasanti blush looks gorgeous, I can't believe you got a full size of it!

ღ jenwoonani said...

Ohhh!! I wanna try that blush and lip balm! :D Lol, it's cute that they sent you some Halloween jelly's! I think black licorice is gross too. I don't even know a single person that likes it! Ughh, they need to just stop making them. Hahaha..

Victoria said...

I went to dinner like that and he was like "what's wrong with you? You look like a hooker" T_______T
So I jokingly kissed his cheek and left a lipstick mark to finish my hooker role.
He spent so long rubbing it off that the waiter kept on staring at him in confusion LOL


Cerina said...

Ahh such cool stuff in the Glymm box! I really want to get one of these but i have to save money unfortunately haha. MM jelly bellys are the bomb!

Maryam Maquillage said...

ooo October's seems better than September's--it has more makeup!!!

Anonymous said...

I've recently subscribed to have this kind of box delivered to me once a month -- finally the trend has picked up in Australia ! That blush looks gorgeous ^^

mizzsandychau said...

Venus Loves Virgo said...

btw. great taste in music! loved your playlist

Jessy said...

anyways~~~good haul~~~


Rainy Days and Lattes said...

Vasanti-Rockies Blush is such a pretty coral! I love how bright and vibrant it is.

mizzsandychau said...

omg love all the goodies you got! this seems sooo much better than luxebox. i'm not with anything right now, i really want to start glymbox, i like the points thingies and how you can collect them

breakingrumours said...

Alex!!! :D thank u so much for your comment! I saw you tweeted that you cut your hair,6 inches is crazy long!!! your hair must be very long before this :) I cut mine too,but only 1/2 inch shorter lol and went back to having bangs.

i thought i commented on this post but by scrolling through it seems I didn't,sorry >.<

about turning older,hmm I still feel as if I've never left highschool(minus all the coll shiz and not being able to cope with late nights) and still a 17 yr old too! :( how did time passed by so fast T.T

Mimi said...

you got a looooot of goooood stuff! ;) all those products look amazing, and thanks for the swatches! :D

p.s. i don't like licorice either. :/ but i think it's nice how they included halloween jelly bellies! ;)

<3, Mimi

Karen Law said...

Hi Alx!
Thanks so much for dropping by at my blog Hun and for saying hi :) Yay for another Toronto blogger!
That's neat that these boxes always include jelly beans. I haven't jumped on the band wagon with these surprise boxes, but I can see the novelty in trying out sample size products before thinking of purchasing a full size.
I find that a lot of organic soaps don't foam up at all...same with organic shampoos (I'm currently using a Burt's Bees shampoo). I'm seriously not use to the lack of foam and like yourself, I end up using a TON of product to try to get it to foam a bit to make myself feel "clean" LOL Does that make sense? Probably not, but it's going to take some time for me to get use to the non-foaming kind...I'll probably revert back to regular shampoos and body washes that do foam the way I like it.

cushy said...

do review about caudalie premier cru cream.

you must have a ton of jelly beans by now :)

Anonymous said...

you always have the cutest stuff! love!! IMY alex! take care!

Audrey (hkittygirl) said...

mizzsandychau said...

BEBE said...
