I'm back again with a beaut GlossyBox ! If you read my BeautyBox series and round up you will know GlossyBox impressed me out of them all and I decided to stay subscribed. They are back with their February box and have certainly not disappointed this month. A Huda beauty lip liner? NailsInc! I mean I'm just being spoilt now. 

I was genuinely so shocked and happy when I opened this little gem. I've never owned anything Huda Beauty and am desperate to try out their foundation and eye palettes. I can't wait to wear this lip liner, it will match MAC Velvet Teddy perfectly I think. 

Also included 

Nails Inc Polish | Shade Status Ready

Regenerate Toothpaste 

Luxie Fan Brush 

Multivitamin Sheet Mask 

x2 Alien Perfume Samples | Man and Woman

How gorgeous is this Huda Beauty lip liner in the shade venus ? this is giving me kylie vibes. I had swatched this on my hand and done the dishes, went for a shower taken all my make up off and at the end of the night this swatch was still on my hand i was shook. I had to really scrub to get it off so will likely need an oil based make up remover to shift this bad boy from your lips. 

This is going to be amazing if I need my lip make up to stay put for a long period of time or if going out for a meal I know it will last a decent amount of time before it starts to fade which is amazing. I'm going to look at what other shades they have and buy some more. I can feel an obsession brewing! 

This red nails inc polish in the shade status ready is just beautiful. I would usually go for a brighter red but I love how deep and dark this is, great for going from day to night and very Valentine-esk. I have to say after cleaning the house and putting shopping away it has chipped quite a bit. I used a base and top coat too so a little disappointed but then again I wasn't really being too careful as I'm used to having shellac on which doesn't chip. I will probably use this on my toes but not likely to wear it again on my fingers unless it's just for a night or two. 

What do you think of this months Glossybox ? Did you get one ? I am definitely still staying subscribed, as soon as I get a box I'm a bit mehh about I usually unsubscribe but it's still pretty much a novelty at this stage getting an email saying your glossybox is due for delivery it's a little surprise present to myself every month and I love it.

I've been buying so many make up bits over the past few weeks and there is a second post to come on New In to my make up collection since taking these blog photo's I seem to have picked up even more bits, I have lost all sense of control and need to reign it in again. I am however sooo happy with the bits I've picked up and a lot of them I've been wanting for ages. 

I ordered the majority of this off Beauty Bay and Look Fantastic I believe and still have so much on my wishlist like the Benefit Gold Rush Blush, Milani Baked Bronzer, Cover FX Pressed Powder and ABH Amrezy Highlight. My birthday is in June so might put a couple these on my bday wishlist. 

On to what I have been buying and what's new to me and my collection...

Lottie London Soap Star Solid Brush Cleanser 

I've been wanting to try the BeautyBlender Solid Cleanser for ageeeees but it's a bit pricey and have been holding off and then I saw that Lottie done a solid brush cleanser. I am still yet to use it so really hope it's good, I'm looking to clean my beauty blenders with this. Let me know in the comments if you have tried this and if it's any good ?

Milani Conceal & Perfect Foundation 

I got this in the shade 01 Creamy Vanilla as it said it was a neutral undertone for light skin, this is wayyy to dark for me at my palest so I use it when I have fake tan on which is lucky I do fake tan. I'm not sure if they have a lighter shade than this but they gotta sort their shade range out. The undertone is perfect for me, I am going to do a high end vs drugstore on this and the Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation / concealer just for a bit of fun and see how they compare although the shades are completely different so likely not doing side by side comparison. 

Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Highlight 

I have been wanting to try this for the longest time so picked it up in the mini version to check I liked it and actually prefer the mini versions as they are better to store and travel with too. This is an all over highlight which gives your skin the nicest glow but can be built up on your cheekbones for a more intense highlight. 

Too Faced Hangover Primer 

I think this primer is the one I have been waiting to try for the longest time out the lot of these products and when I seen it comes in a mini / travel size I was all over it and couldn't wait to try this out. If you have dry or dehydrated skin this will definitely help it makes my skin feel so hydrated and healthy looking. Will definitely re-purchase 

Pro Hygiene Make Up Spray 

I saw this whilst browsing and loved that it was a travel friendly size for me to use when spraying my make up or brushes which removes bacteria and a germaphobe like me really needs this

Wet N' Wild Photofocus Foundation

I remember watching so many YouTubers using this foundation and they say it's their holy grail drugstore foundation I couldn't wait to try this once Wet N' Wild launched in the UK I really like this but the smell isn't great, it's like paint ! It does however provide good coverage, it went oily on me once and I don't have oily skin but working with different combo's and it's not happened again, I went in to boots and picked it up in a lighter shade when I have no fake tan on.

Wet N' Wild Highlighter 

I picked this up whilst shopping for my foundation and am still yet to use it, I forgot I even had it until I am writing this post so I will for sure be using this tomorrow to see how I like it and if it's any good. I really hope it is as it was sooo affordable 

Have you tried any of these products? If so, what's your favourite ? Let me know in the comments below :)
