I don't think I could stress how long I've been waiting for this box to arrive — since the moment the collab was announced I was all over it. I mean, as an avid reader of Leandra's, who wouldn't be? Also, this is the first special/collab/whatever box since I've been a subscriber so yay! Although my Sebastian Potion 9 leaked e v e r y w h e r e, I'm just going to try not to think about it and get on with this post.
First up is the Tarte Achioté cheek tint — this stuff seems really awesome. It's supposed to give you a subtle but flushed look while also being long-lasting and buildable. As a blush lover and a Tarte lover, I'm all for this and can't wait to give it a go. Woo! (ps I can't find this online anywhere!)
Next is the Fresh Umbrian Clay Mattifying Serum. Well, hm. I usually try to avoid matte anything like the plague but I'm still down for trying this to see how I get on with it. Plus, Fresh is an awesome brand. That said, I would have much rather gotten the Living Proof style extender/Vincent Longo lip stain that everyone is raving about.
The OPI polish in this box took me by surprise. It's *ahem* matte with a hint of shimmer and described as "like wearing liquid sand". I'm seriously intrigued by this so expect a mini-review once I've tried. I'm also, uh, slightly scared.
Estée Lauder?! So into it. I've got a little bottle of the Sumptuous Extreme Lash Multiplying Volume Mascara which I can not wait to try out. The brush is HUGE for a sample and well, anything that can give me help in the lash department, I'm interested in.
Then we've got a little sample of Le Métier de Beaute Replenishing Daily Solution which is supposed to hydrate and detoxify the skin, leaving your face supple and radiant. Full size... $225/1.1oz, oy! But oh, look! A little bitty Narciso Rodriguez for her EDT sample — I feel like sooo many people have raved about this before so I can't wait to give it a sniff!
Last but definitely not least is the Sebastian Professional Potion 9 styling cream(!!!!). While it did leak freakin' everywhere, I'm hoping there's still enough to get a few uses out of because I am super psyched about this. It's supposed to help "restore lost moisture" as well as giving a flexible hold. As a hair-product junkie, I'm just beaming with excitement to try this out. Yay!!!
What do you guys think of the Glossybox x MR box? What did you get in yours?
