Hey look! It’s my September Glossybox. I actually had this one sitting on my desk for a month now but I guess better late than never, right? Sigh.
September’s box was a collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. The contents were curated by Harper’s Bazaar Digital Director, Joyann King. I usually love Glossybox’s collaborations but this one was pretty boring in comparison with others. But see for yourself.

I don’t know how I feel about designers dabbling into the world of hair care (or skin care for that matter). Makeup I can understand to an extend but for hair care I don’t think a designer brings anything to the table aside from the brand name. Consequently, I bet that this is probably a perfectly average conditioner that is totally overpriced. I’m happy to be proven wrong but I’m not holding my breath. I’m still on the fence on whether to trade this or not.
Full Size: 0.3 oz, $23

I still very much like this mascara so I’m happy to have a backup.
Shade: Madison Ave-Hue
Size: 0.46 fl oz, $8.50
I was really hoping to get the other shade in the September Glossybox, She’s Pampered. This shade is a really bright bubble gum pink that isn’t really my style. Oh well.
Full Size: 1.69 fl oz, $50
Sample Size: 0.51 fl oz, $15.09 value
Yay, skin care! Moisturizers are always welcome in my subscription boxes.
Size: 0.33 fl oz, $18
I’ve been interested in trying the OCC lip tars for a while so I was excited about seeing this in a spoiler. I’m not too crazy about the color so I will probably trade this one which is disappointing.
Overall, this was a pretty average Glossybox. It didn’t knock me off my feet but I will definitely use the mascara and the night cream. I guess I just had higher expectations from a collaboration with Harper’s Bazaar.
This was also the last Glossybox in my 3-month subscription. So far I haven’t re-subscribed. I think Glossybox is a prefectly fine subscription but over the past three months it’s also been a bit boring and I just expect more from a subscription that costs $21 a month. I guess I’m a just glossied-out for the time being so I will give it a break for now. I would definitely consider subscribing again in the future if Glossybox were to do any exciting collaborations.
