Glossybox Stars And Stripes July 2014
Glossybox Stars And Stripes July 2014

It's that time of month again when we get a knock on our day and a box of goodies has our name on it, it's Glossybox time! This month's theme is Stars & Stripes (I'm guessing it's because of the 4th of July). We have a box full of bits and bobs from across the pond!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Mineral Lipstick I don't know if I've been on another planet or something but I haven't heard much about this brand, apparently these lipsticks are a 'cult American favourite' (and so they should be for £20!). I'm interested in trying this as I love the orange/coral shades, I'm totally obsessed with orange lips at the moment! I've swatched it on my hand and it seems really creamy and has great colour pay off. It also smells like some of the MAC and Rimmel Kate lipsticks which are my favourite, so maybe the formula is similar. RRP £20
ABSOLUTE New York Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer Another full size product which is great, but I also haven't heard of this brand before so I don't know what to expect. Never the less I'm looking forward to trying this and seeing how it holds. RRP $4.99
Carmex Lip Balm I'm a sucker for a lip balm so this is a great for me, I can never have too many lip balms lying around! I prefer stick balms so they don't get all icky and neither does your finger, but this formula seems so moisturising and creamy, I'm still excited to use this. RRP £2.69
Color Club Glossy Seal Yet another brand I know nothing about. Apparently this shade "Glossy Seal" has been specially formulated for us Glossies. Well I wish they would have gave us one of their original shades, this one seems a bit dull and dingy for the Summer! I'm not happy about this one, I haven't heard of the brand and I wouldn't use this shade in the Summer. RRP $8
Pur Minerals Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque I'm very interested to try this mask, I'm constantly on the search for amazing skincare that's going to sort my face out! This is how they describe the mask... 'Dirty Girl unclogs pores, cleanses skin and gently exfoliates. Pascalite Clay absorbs pore-clogging impurities while Salicylic Acid removes dead skin for a visibly fresher, more radiant complexion.' Anything that is going to unclog my pores, cleanse my skin and gently exfoliate, I am game for. I Can't wait to try this one out. RRP £18 for 120g

Overall I'm not too impressed with this month Glossybox. I haven't heard of most these brands and a lot of people seem to be getting the Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara that I was just about to buy, so I would of loved this one to try out! I seem to have got some less known brands and not much I'm too excited to try. I'm most likely going to stick Glossybox out until I have enough Glossydots for a free box, then subscribe to Birchbox!

Most people would love to try out new brands and see what they have to offer, if you would like to sign up to Glossybox to get a box of beauty goodies every month for £10, you can here www.glossybox.co.uk

    1. Wow I can't believe you've never heard of Glossybox:O I would if I was you, I'm definitely going to make the switch soon, you seem to get a lot more for your money. It's worth looking at Glossybox though to see if it's more your thing:) Of course:)

  3. Your box is the same as mine this month. I quite liked everything i got but this months was paid for with Glossydots so i thought it was worth it anyway!

    I just wasnt impressed with the orange lipstick because it just doesn't suit me!

    1. It's funny how it differs, the lipstick is the only thing that I may use, but I'm not happy about the amount of unknown brands. I know it's about trying new brands, but I always love to get something well known you know you're going to love!
