NARS Glossybox Limited Edition: Worth it?

NARS Glossybox Limited Edition

I think we can all remember that time when Glossybox included a full-sized NARS Orgasm illuminator in one of their boxes, and the internet just about melted.  Now the beauty subscription service is letting everyone in on the fun with a seriously exciting collab with the brand.

Obviously, the standard Glossybox price - £10 plus £2.95 postage and packing, working out at about €15 – does not apply. This is a fancypants, limited edition number that you can snap up in addition to the current box (which as an aside, is brilliant; you might have seen my unboxing on snapchat? I’m fluffyblog there and well, everywhere).

So let’s get the bad news out of the way straight away: the box is £30 for members and £35 for non-members, which works out at about €40/€47. Not inconsiderable – so is it worth it?

Hell yes, in my opinion: whether you’re a NARS newbie or a long-time fan, you’re gonna be happy with this one. It’s seriously luxey: you get five decent sized miniatures of both cult classics and brand new launches. The products and shades are carefully curated and well thought through; they should suit just about everyone. The collection serves as a great intro to the brand, allows you to try a few bits you might not have tried yet and also gives your travel beauty bag a glamorous overhaul.  Not to mention that Christmas is right around the corner…this has serious gifting potential too.

So what’s in the box? For starters, there’s an adorably cute mini Orgasm blush, as well as a mini multiple in the same shade. I’ve never owned either and am thrilled to bits at the chance to try both. There’s also a very wearable Satin Lip Pencil in the dusky rose shade, Rikugien, along with a Larger than Life longwear eyeliner in black, and a mini version of the brand new Audacious mascara. That’s a seriously impressive edit of brilliant beauty bits – not a dud in sight.
