Gloww Box is one of the few beauty boxes in the UK dedicated to women of colour. As part of my beauty box review series, I picked up the May box which featured an Ombre Lips look and products to help you achieve that.



Cailyn Pure Lust Extreme Matte Tint in Egoist– £13

Cailyn Luxe Lipstick in Neo Candy– £13

Saturated Colour Lip Vinyl in Passion Peach– £7

Cailyn Luxe Lipstick in Banana– £13

Cailyn Lip Liner Gel Pencil in Whisky Sour– £9

Saturated Colour Double Ended Lip Brush- £5.50

Total- £60.50

Gloww Box monthly subscription- £15 plus £3.95 p&p

Overall Thoughts

It’s bittersweet for me. I think the box is excellent value for money! The content is worth over £60 yet a monthly subscription is only £15! That is very good! On the other hand, I found this box rather boring. I personally don’t like the ombre lip look. I originally subscribed at the END OF MAY, after May boxes were shipped (or so I thought) I had seen this box on Instagram and wasn’t interested so I thought signing up at the end of May will get me June’s box which I was hoping won’t be makeup!

Also none of the colours actually excite me. I know I will definitely NOT be wearing the Banana shade. Egoist and Neo Candy are ok and the Passion Peach shade looks too light for my skintone so I will definitely have to pair with a liner! The only shade I actually liked was the lip liner in Whisky Sour.   I have included swatches of the lip colours below. The lip brush looks cool too although I don’t really use lip brushes.






Overall I am kinda torn, I have known about Gloww box for a while and was really looking forward to their box! You definitely get your money’s worth and more but for me I don’t think this is one of their strongest boxes. I will bring individual reviews on the products later.

What do you think? Did you received this box? Let me know your thoughts below!
