GlossyBox Review - February 2014

My February GlossyBox arrived yesterday! Normally I would be disappointed to receive a February box in March, but since February is such a short month I'll let it slide. This was my first month of GlossyBox, so I was not totally sure what to expect. Despite the tardiness and a missing item I am still very pleased with this box.

The packaging on this box is beautiful. I do realize that is not what I am paying for, but it really goes a long way. This adorable box is going to get a lot of use. 

GlossyBox costs $21 a month, but if you are willing to pre-pay for a 3 month, 6 month, or 12 month subscription you can save.

Each box comes with a card detailing the its contents and the price of full sized versions of each item. I am a little embarrassed to say that despite this it took me about an hour to realize I was missing an item. When I signed up I used a code to receive a free Bellapierre lipstick. When I saw that I had five items in my box I assumed GlossyBox had offered a substitution due to a shortage on the Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil. Once I realized my mistake I contacted GlossyBox. Hopefully I will hear from them soon.

I am thrilled with both of the lip products I received this month. The Bellapierre Lipstick in Catwalk is a beautiful light pink. This lipstick has a great scent that you don't find with a lot of lipsticks.

The Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture in City of Angels was an item guaranteed to be in each February box. This was one of the items that pushed me to sign up for GlossyBox, and I am not disappointed.

I have never tried a mattifying gel before, but matte products seem to really be on trend. I'm very excited to try this out.

The total value of the items I received comes to $80.50. I am thrilled with this and with all the products I received. Having an item missing from my first box was somewhat disappointing, but it would take a lot more than that to negate the joy I got from this box. 

What was your opinion of the February GlossyBox?
