*GLOSSYBOX sent to me for review.

Hey boos! My apologies for getting this up so late! Like, a month late. But I still wanted to share last month's box with you all because it's absolutely stunning and has some amazing goodies in it!

September's GLOSSYBOX is all about celebrating the synonymy between fashion and beauty. This month's gorgeous secret garden box is illustrated by Antonio Soares, known for his avant-garde, high-fashion style and watercolor manipulation to create works of fashion-inspired art by hand. Now let's take a peek inside!

  • Borghese Superiore State-Of-The-Art Mascara ($19.50) - I consider myself a sort of mascara connoisseur so needless to say, when I come across a mascara I've never tried before, I get pretty excited. The formula is powdered silk and panthenol-infused to give your lashes lift, length and volume. The consistency is a little too wet for my liking. My personal preference is a drier feel but overall, this isn't too bad. It just isn't my favorite.
  • MonuSpa Rosewood Reviving Mist ($27) - YES PLEASE! I'm such a huge fan of face mists. This mist combines lemon, rosewood and sandalwood essential oils to give you a nice, refreshing feel. You can use this to set or fix your makeup with but I just like using it to give my face a little dew to it.
  • ModelLauncher Brow Duo Pencil in Taupe ($12) - Can you tell this bag is full of win? This pencil is basically the color I've been looking for but have never been able to find. It's a cool-toned taupe that works so well for me. Sometimes when I use a brow pencil that's "meant" for my brows, it's just way too dark and gives me Sharpie-brows. I've tried to use other "taupes" in the past but they're always red-toned. No bueno. This one is perfect! It's smooth and applies lightly so that it looks natural. I'm a fan!
  • Korres Volcanic Minerals Twist Eyeshadow in Grey Brown ($18) - I've heard of Korres before but never tried their products - until now! I tend to stay away from cream eyeshadows as they crease on me like crazy, no matter how much I set them. I wasn't too keen on trying this but I'm so, so happy I did! I'm not sure what's in this baby (besides black volcanic minerals and rice wax) but this stayed on without creasing! And it's such a gorgeous shade as you can see from the swatch below. I feel like I need all of these now!
  • Sesderma Sensyses Cleanser & C-Vit Moisturizing Serum ($20/$52) - The cleanser is absolutely awesome! It's very light without being oily-feeling. It took off all of my makeup, including the waterproof stuff (always a plus!) and apparently, while removing makeup, cleansing and balancing the skin, it supplies essential fatty acids to the skin. The serum is designed for almost every place on your face. It provides glow all the while minimizing wrinkles and fine lines and brightening dark circles. I can't say I saw all that but it did give my face a nice, supple feel to it.
