Last Thursday, after attending the Illamasqua Event with Louise, we made our way over to Mortons in Mayfair for the GlossyBox event. It was extremely swanky round there let me tell you. I felt a little out of place in my chino's & flats.

I had heard a lot about GlossyBox, both good, and bad, but having not looked into it more myself, or subscribed to the box, I went there with a completely open mind and not really knowing an awful lot. I already knew that it was a fabulous idea however, but after speaking with the girls behind the brand it all became very clear how much thought and effort went into these boxes, and it confirmed in my mind that in fact, it's a marvellous and exciting idea and concept. I know that most of you may have already had your fair share of GlossyBox info, or be subscribers to the box, but for those of you who may be reading this wondering what it is, I shall quickly sum it up for you (I will probabaly give it absolutely no justice whatsoever, but I will try) GlossyBox is a monthly subscription, which arrives to your door, in a little box, filled with high end Beauty & Cosmetic samples. The idea is that you pay a smaller amount that you would to buy full sized products and get to sample a variety of different things you may not have thought to try previously. The previous boxes have contained brands such as Nars, Illamasqua, Ciate, Xen Tan...to name a few. There are also lesser known brands, some of which deserve to be shouted about I'm sure. It's a great concept for those of you who may wish to experiment a bit more with different beauty products and spend less doing so.

At the event, we were given an empty box, of which we could fill with 5 products that had been used in GlossyBox's during the previous months. This was seriously fun, we even got the little sticker and ribbon to tie the bow (I don't know how they manage to tie these so neatly, mine was a shambles) It was a lovely evening, and the girls were all so friendly, I didn't get to chat to everyone but I spoke with Sky & Lily who were both gorgeous & lovely. I also finally got to meet Victoria & Lily who's blogs I both adore & overall it was a splendid event. Thanks for having me GlossyBox.

At the event we were given a little voucher for a free GlossyBox, I received mine yesterday, but I am staying tight lipped until the subscribers recieve theirs, so look out for my review on that.

  1. That event looked so fun, it makes me really want to try Glossy Box, as I had no idea they put in products from well-known brands like Nars!

    And LOL at feeling out of place in Mayfair... You always look great, I dread to think what they'd think of me round there!

  10. Have heard a lot about this already but I enjoy reading your posts on events the most as they are so informative and comprehensive, I love how you really take the time to do the brand justice and i'm sure they're really proud to be featured on your blog. I loved the imagery you posted on the Illamasqua post too.

    I am excited to see what it is in the sept box, i've heard it's a good one!! Out of all the ones that are available, I think that Glossybox is one that suits me best. Really looking forward to receving this month's box. Thank you for posing about this! xxx

  16. Wow, you have been busy! Two events in one day!
    I have never ordered a Glossybox, I keep meaning to and I just never get round to it. I have seen so many reviews on blogs about them and I think they're a great idea!
    I have only been to London twice in my life (Once for the Queens 80th Birthday party, no less! ahah!) and I felt out of place! There are so many people walking the streets in their very fashionable clothes and me in flats and jeans! woops!
    Great post, as usual, and I now realise I have rambled. Sorry.

  29. eep! my first glossy box is due this month and I was apprehensive I might have in estero something a little off but I know you were slightly dubious about it too so to see behind the brand and see its personality helps! I'm looking forward to it now! waiting for your review :)

  41. I've always really liked the idea of the GlossyBox, I find that if I can try a product in a sample size and I like it, I'm more inclined buy the product despite the cost. I'm not sure if these kind of things exist in Australia, even if they did I'm not sure I would subscribe without a recommendation first.

  42. Zoe I loved the products you picked! I have that Body Oil and its amazing stuff :) I cannot wait for my next Glossybox! The event looked fab! xx

  58. Hi, I saw your tweet about finding new blogs but I haven't told many of my friends about mine yet, so I was reluctant to respond on twitter. I commented the other day, so I'm sorry if you've already checked out my blog and it wasn't your thing. But just in case, I'd love you to look at www.acidera.blogspot.com, it's still a baby (one week old) but I'm really enjoying myself.
    Thank you xxx

  82. The decor is beautiful - understated, but elegant, and the view, oh, the view. Even on a rainy Friday, it was great to just sit at the window and overlook the city.
