I decided to splurge and try one box of Mirenesse Glamm Box. Mirenesse is a company in Italy, I believe. I discovered them through Ipsy (aka MyGlam) a few months ago.
First. it wasn’t a box at all! It was a little envelope. At first I was a little disappointed, but then I realized that I got three full size products for a killer price!
First, velvet eyeshadow in Greek Goddess. The packaging is very pretty. It’s a black and an aqua shadow.
The color payoff was very good.
However…the pretty sparkles are only on the top! Once you use the first layer of the shadow, no more pretty silver. I think the shadows are pretty, anyway, but it would have been a very nice touch to have the silver notes all the way through the tin.
Eyeshadow “mascara”. This is basically a tinted eyebrow gel. I’ve been having troubles keeping my eyebrows in place lately, so I’m excited to try this one.
Eye primer. I don’t really use eye primer and haven’t every really needed it. But, I’ll use this and give it the good ol’ college try to see if I like it. The only thing I don’t like is that it reeks to high heaven when you open the tube.
And that’s it! It’s an interesting concept since it is all full-size products.
What do you think? Is it worth it?
Next up, the Beauty Dips box in “Lips”. This is like a mystery box, but you get to choose what category you want. I picked the lips category.
This had two full-size products. A gorgeous lip gloss that I can’t find a name on. And, a double-ended lip and eye liner. The lip liner is very light and does not seem to coordinate well with the lip gloss. But, I have others I can use it with.
