A while ago, GLOSSYBOX had their yearly throwback sale which is when you can buy their beauty boxes for a discounted price. I knew that if I decided to order from their sale, there were bound to be a couple of boxes that I've received in the past. They only allowed three boxes per person, which is very understandable. I managed to get my hands on six boxes, thanks to my mom who let me use her account. I only paid around $39 for all 6 boxes (each box was 59NOK), which is such a good bargain.

The box selections were completely random so I didn't get to pick my own, but I'm very pleased with the boxes that I ended up with. You can imagine my excitement when all 6 boxes arrived at my doorstep, it felt like Christmas all over again. I ended up with 3 beauty boxes that I've already received in the past, while the other 3 were ''new'' boxes. Although 3 of these are boxes that I have received in the past, some of the colors are different than what they were when I first got them. I'm excited to try everything out, hopefully I find a couple of new favorites in the bunch! :-)
 ♥ GLOSSYBOX: Font Your Beauty
This is one of the boxes that I have received in the past during my subscription to GLOSSYBOX. It's probably one of my least favorite boxes. I was a little disappointed when I opened it up, because I thought that the content wasn't as great compared to some of the previous boxes that I have received from GLOSSYBOX.

My favorite items from the Front Your Beauty box is definitely the Glazel Visage Lip Pencil and Emite Make Up E144 Eyeshadow Brush. Although I'm a huge fan of Make Up Store, their Cyber Shadow in Babydoll isn't a color that I would personally wear on my eyes. I'm all about neutral eyeshadows, so this one is a little bright for my taste. I love a good face mask, so I'm excited to try out the Incredible Face Mask from May Beauty. It's a brand that I'm not familiar with, which makes me even more excited to play around with it. Don't you just love it when you get products from brands you haven't heard about before? I think it's really fun! :-)
 ♥ GLOSSYBOX: Bold Beauty
Bold Beauty is actually one of my favorite boxes that I've received from GLOSSYBOX in the past, so I was excited to get it again. I love that they have included yet another product from Make Up Store and this time it's one of their slim lipsticks. The shade is called 104 and it's a beautiful pinky red, which looks absolutely gorgeous. Another favorite from this box is the Glazel Visage Loose Eyeshadow in G1. It's a beautiful, golden eyeshadow with lots of sparkles. I'm excited to try this one out, it looks like it could be a nice color for everday. The Mythic Oil Masque from L'Oreal Paris smells amazing. My all-time favorite hair masque is the Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque from Macadamia Professionals, so I'm excited to see how this one compares to it.

The last two items that I got in this box is Naobay Natural & Organic Moistruizing Peeling and Elizabeth Mott You're So FINE Liquid Eyeliner in Glitterati. I haven't tested these two products out yet, so I can't really tell you much about them. I think I'm going to try out moisturizing peeling later tonight, hope it's good! :-) 
♥ GLOSSYBOX: Summer Countdown
Summer Countdown is a lovely box filled with lots of products that will get you Summer ready in no time. I've already received this box before, but I didn't mind getting it again because I think it's a really good box. My favorite picks from the Summer Countdown box is definitely Make Up Store Messy Hair Tube and Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil SPF 15. We are going to Thailand on holiday, so I'm planning to take quite a few of these products with me. Although they are small sized, you actually get a lot of product in each tube. They are so easy and convinient to travel with and they don't take up much space in your bag either! :-)

 ♥ GLOSSYBOX: Pop Art Edition
 ♥ GLOSSYBOX: Pop Art Edition
The Pop Art Edition box is inspired by Andy Warhols Pop Art and makeup is the main focus in this box. I really like the look of the Rituals Foaming Shower Gel Sensation in the scent Yogi Flow, it smells devine. I'm also curious to try out the Nails Inc Nail Polish in Brook Street, it looks like a nice pinky coral shade for Summer. The Universal Blush from So Susan Cosmetics looks like it can be a pretty blush for everyday. This is another brand that I haven't heard about, so I can't wait to see what I think about it. I also got this Eye Pencil in Goodbye Moon by the brand Lollipops Paris Make-Up, which looks interesting. I usually stick to brown eye pencils, because I think black looks a little too harsh on my pale complextion. But I will definitely give this one a go. It's contains Vitamin E, has an anti-aging effect and it's supposed to have a metallic sheen as well. How cute is the packaging? It reminds me off Too Faced? What do you think? :-)

The final item in this box is this Cyber shadow from Make Up Store called Jelly. It's another ''crazy'' color, which I'm not sure I will get much use out off. I think I might just add this one to my give away bin and do a giveaway for you in the near future. I'm sure many of you love to rock a bold and bright eye look and it's better to give it away to someone who is going to give it some love! :-)
 ♥ GLOSSYBOX: Eyes On Beauty
The Eyes On Beauty box is filled with lots of exciting products, mainly products for the eyes. I have already tested out the Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer from Absolute New York and so far I like it. It a little sticky, which is great because then the eyeshadow has something to grab onto. The concealer quad from So Susan Cosmetics looks interesting! The packaging feels cheap though, but I'm excited to play around with the different concealers and see how well they cover.

I received yet another product from Make Up Store in this box and this time it's one of their eyedusts in the color Victory. It's a nice teal, which looks very pretty but then again I'm not sure how much use I'm going to get out of it. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Skin Perfection Awakening Eye Cream a while back, but haven't tried it out yet. I have heard some lovely things about it though, so I hope that I'm going to like it. How cute is this MeMeMe Cheek and Lip Tint in Coral Blossom? It's such a pretty shade! I wouldn't wear it on my lips because this perticular color doesn't look good on me, but I would definitely use it as a cheek tint! :-) 
 ♥ GLOSSYBOX: Anniversary Box
This is probably my second favorite box out of all 6 boxes. One of my favorite items from this box is the Deep Cleansing Mud Mask from Anatomicals. I love using face masks, so I can't wait to try this one out. Have you tried it out before? What did you think about it? The nail polish from Makiash looks absolutely gorgeous! This shade is called 301 and it's a beautiful, deep navy. I can't wait to paint my nails with this color, it looks so beautiful in the bottle. It might be the next color that I'm painting my nails with! Let me know if you would like to see a ''Nails Of The Day'' post about it! :-)

I love testing out new mascaras so I'm happy that they included this one by the brand Jelly Pong Pong in the box. This Farg Eyes black eye liner is my least favorite product in this box, just because I don't wear black eye liners that often. Although, it's always nice to have a good, black eye liner lying around just in case I want to change things up a bit. I'm not sure how well this Pressed Bronzing Powder from Model Co is going to work on my pale complextion. It looks way too dark in the packaging, but we'll see how it's going to look after I've used it on my face. If I don't like it as a bronzing powder, I would probably make a good eyeshadow! :-)

Sp there you have it, this is everything that I got from the GLOSSYBOX Throwback Sale. Have you bought any boxes from their sale? Which boxes did you get? :-) 
Love, Christine ♥


  1. Yay for new brands and products! That's a pretty sweet haul. The Warhol inspired box caught my eye, especially the far out colored eyeshadow. :)

    1. Yeah, it's so much fun testing out new products. Quite a few of these brands are new to me. Yeah, it's a really pretty color. Not sure if I can pull it off though haha. I'm not that into bright colors on my eyes :-)
