Beauty Box Off August: Glossybox Vs You Beauty Discovery Box

Firstly, my apologies for the delay in me publishing this post! I got caught up with holidays..... my bad!

August You Beauty Discovery Box
This was the first You Beauty Discovery Box I have received, and I was quite impressed considering how cheap it is! This box is the cheapest beauty box you can get, and although it is very small, I think that at £6.95 it is an absolute bargain!

In this box I got:

1) FaceD facemask
2) Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow
3) Peggy Sage Nail Varnish
4) Nail Block
5) Jimmy Choo Perfume Sample (there was also a male sample but my boyfriend robbed it!)

August Glossybox Contents
In the August Glossybox there was:

1) Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
2) L'Amour Lalique Perfume Sample
3) Figs and Rouge Hand Cream
4) Yves Rocher Nail Varnish
5) Glossybox Highlighter
6) Essence Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty

The only item I was really disappointed about in this box was the lipstick, as it wasn't very pigmented, and after the excitement of how amazing the last lipstick was that I got from a Glossybox, the bar was set high. This failed, by a long way :( I would definitely not buy this!

Also do excuse how weird my thumb looks... I'm not quite sure what happened there!

Essence Lipstick - this was two heavy coats!

Do you get many beauty boxes? Are there other ones you think I need to try out? Let me know!

Lots of love

  1. I don't actually get any beauty boxes! The You Beauty Discovery Box looks great, love the nail varnish

    1. I'd say it's a pretty good box to start with, I should have a review of the september one soon, so keep an eye out and see if it looks like stuff you would be interested in when it arrives! xx
