When Glamourbox announced that they will be releasing a special edition Pixi (by Petra) beauty kit, I got way too excited that I immediately purchased a slot the moment they opened the subscriptions.
What I like about Glamourbox is that even though they no longer offer beauty boxes on a monthly basis, they make up for it by assuring subscribers of wonderfully curated boxes that we will surely love. In my experience, I’d say that most of their boxes are more than satisfactory than most of those that I received from BDJ Box. Plus, I love that Glamourbox fulfilled their promise of delivering the box in the last week of June and even better, they were able to deliver it to the correct shipping address unlike what I recently experienced from BDJ. (If you’re wondering what happened with my recent BDJ Box subscription, you can check out the full story here.)
Anyway, without further delay, here’s the special edition Pixi Glamourbox.
The Pixi beauty kit contains a total of 5 items. Let’s check each one:
Love love love this multi-purpose palette because it already contains 2 highlighters, 2 blush shades and 4 eyeshadow shades. This is the perfect palette to use when you are leaning towards achieving a “barely there” makeup look. It is pareben-free as well.
You can check out the swatches I did on the picture above. I labeled each shade so you’ll know which is which. I love that the shades are pigmented and although it’s supposed to give you a “no-makeup” makeup look, you can definitely build it up if you want to. I adore the blush shades (#3 and #4) because it’s my favorite kind of pink. It looks so pretty and looks great on my skin tone. The first 2 shimmer eyeshadow shades (#7) are just so gorgeous to look at and are perfect for when you want to add a subtle pop on your eyelids. If you are not into shimmer, no worries since this palette also comes with 2 matte eyeshadow shades.
According to the card included in the box: This Lash Booster Mascara does it all and creates a gorgeous voluminous effect. The dense, rich formula ensures that the lashes are coated with maximum pigment, for long-lasting full color. The cone-shaped brush coats each lash evenly for the ultimate smudge-free, waterproof lash & eye definition.
I like this lip balm as it is packed with Shea Butter for nourishment and Vitamin E for protection. Even though it’s just a lip balm, it does give off a reddish shade so for those days when you are not in the mood to put on lipstick, this would be a great alternative.
These cleansing cloths gently and efficiently remove all traces of makeup – even the most stubborn waterproof formulas. Infused with soothing & hydrating botanical extracts, these make skin feel perfectly clean & balanced after each use.
The first thing I noticed was its scent. It’s so amazingly good. Seriously! Apparently, the ingredients used on these wipes are Chamomile, Grape Seed Oil and Glycerin. It says in the packaging that when you use these wipes, rinsing is no longer needed so it’s good to know that even if I choose not to wash my face anymore, it will still feel and look clean.
It contains 5% Glycolic Acid to exfoliate the skin and smooth out pores, and Aloe Vera and Ginseng to soothe and nourish the skin.
This is one of the most popular products from Pixi. In fact, a lot of subscribers were wishing that this Glow Tonic would be included in the beauty kit so I’m pretty sure that a lot of them are all smiles right now.
Even though we weren’t given a full-size sample of this one, I think the mini size is enough for a few weeks use. I tried it awhile ago but I, obviously, have not noticed any changes yet but I will keep using this and hope that it will really make my skin look glowing. Fingers crossed! 🙂
Only 5 items inside this beauty kit but it’s still so worth it. I paid Php1290 (plus Php80 for shipping) for this box but the total value of all items is at Php3439 – that’s almost 3 times what I paid. I am beaming with joy. Well done, Glamourbox! ^_^
