It has been a while since I wrote one of these Glossybox un-boxing posts! I think overall, Glossybox had a great year in 2013 and I can't wait to see what they've got up their sleeves. Last year, I loved the special edition boxes such as the seaside splash edition, their 2nd birthday box, and the Pearl Lowe collaboration. However, the ones that I always look forward to are the Valentine's Day boxes! They've been amazing so far, they always make them so special. 

The 2014 Valentine's Day Glossybox was a shiny black box with a red and pink lips on it. The first impression upon opening the box was good. Great, in fact! Each month, I google the reviews  to see what content everyone has received so I already knew what products I could potentially get. Out of the five samples, three of them were full sized and there was a bonus item which was Lindt chocolate. I was pleased with my box, and here is the list of content:

Toni & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe ∙ Stick It Up Gum (Full size sample)
This was one of the products used at LFW backstage, a hair gum that promises to control your hair in versatile ways. It can be used to control fly-aways, or apply to a sleek, pulled back look. I'll be trying this gum to plump up the volume of my hair by working the product through the roots. It cost £7.20 for 90ml. I love the packaging for this, it's not what you would usually expect from Toni&Guy. I like it!

Maybelline ∙ Master Kajal Eye Liner (Full size sample)
I was very happy to see this! Black eyeliner is always a welcome addition to my make-up collection. I've never used one like this before and I've yet to figure out how to extent it. I can't seem to get it to twist it upwards. You stroke this over your eyes at an angle, which should retain the shape. Wouldn't want this one to go blunt. This is a full size sample which retails for £5.99 from Boots.

Miners Cosmetics ∙ Cocktail Kiss Lipgloss (Full size sample)
This shade of this lipgloss is called Mudslide and contains swirls of brown and it supposed to smell like chocolate. I'm not all that keen on lipgloss, especially if it's shimmery, which this one is. Even though I have a big urge to open this up and have a sniff of the chocolate scent, I'm going to keep this sealed because I know I won't use it. I will give it to my mum or one of my sisters. This sample cost £2.99

Nougat London ∙ Sparkling Body Shimmer
At first glance, I thought this was bubble bath, but it's actually body shimmer. I like adding a bit of shimmer to my arms and legs on a night out or for photographs, usually it's in the form of powder. It nice to give your skin a bit of radiance and glow. I've never heard of Nougat London before, but I'll be interested to see what else is in their product range. This isn't full size but it's still a decent sized sample!

Ciate Paint Pot in Red Hot Chilli (Full size sample)
A girl can never have enough red nail polishes! I can't tell you how many Ciate Paint Pots I have accumulated over the past year and half of them are red shades! This latest arrival is in shade 'red hot chilli', a vibrant, orange-toned red and I can't wait to wear it! There's something special about Ciate. This full size sample is priced £9.
