Continuing my pattern of slowpoke Glossybox unboxing posts, it’s almost a week into October and here I am about to do my September 2014 Glossybox review! Apparently my mailman only feels like delivering packages in giant batches, I received *five* Memeboxes (that I’d been waiting on for like a month) and my Glossybox all on the same day. Since that’s highly unlikely to be coincidence – their shipping notices were all at least several days apart – it looks like my PO is content to just let people’s packages sit around until they finally feel like delivering things.
I’m on a no-buy right now, but if we still have the same abysmal mailman at the start of next year, I’ll probably have to look into getting a PO box (at a different PO because I’m not rewarding mine for bad service by paying them more $$ to get my mail on time) for my sub boxes and orders that need to ship USPS.
Anyhow, enough complaining, because the September box is pretty nice!
As you can see, the September box was curated by Harper’s Bazaar. This had me interested, because I actually subscribe to and generally enjoy their magazine! If only they’d stop working with Terry Richardson, though… I find him distasteful enough that I likely won’t renew my subscription when it ends unless they’ve dropped him.
Their beauty advice is generally far sounder than their taste in skeezy photographers, though, so I expected that this would be a good box, and I wasn’t disappointed!
Here’s the first look with the card and tissue paper pulled back so that you can actually see the products. I spy an Essie polish, BVLGARI something, and an OCC Lip Tar! We had a spoiler about Benefit They’re Real Mascara, so that’s obviously what the black box contains, but the other white box is still a mystery at this point…!
I am really glad that they’ve kept the new box style that they premiered last month. I still feel something about the texture and shape just looks crisper and more chic. This special edition box was white and black rather than the classic pastel pink and black – I love that they let the guest curators design their own boxes as well. Really adds to the experience, I think!
Here’s everything pulled out and lined up. Uh, please ignore the fact that the lip tar appears to be about to fire a laser beam at my (new, significantly less shitty!) camera.
