|July 2014 Glossybox* (£12.95)|
There are only so many small cardboard boxes my house can take (& believe me, there are empty beauty boxes here there and everywhere, holding an array of different bits and bobs) but I still get a little bit more excited than I probably should when Glossybox do their special edition boxes. This month is the Stars & Stripes Edition and it's full of beauty treats from across the pond. This is one of the best boxes from Glossybox I've seen in a long time, I hope they can keep it up!
Absolute New York Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer | $4.99 (full size product)
An oil free formula that promises to help even out skin tone around the eyes & keep eyeshadow crease-free all day. I don't wear eyeshadow but sometimes the powder I dust over my eyelids creases throughout the day, which doesn't look that nice. I gave this a try yesterday and although I don't think it held up all day, it did an okay job!
Carmex lip balm | £2.60 (full size product)
I'm always happy to welcome a new lip balm into my little collection. I'm beginning to think I have a little bit of a problem. Carmex isn't my favourite lip balm ever, but this will definitely get used and I know it's really popular. Apparently there are over 130 sold every minute - crazy!
Color Club Glossy Seal Nail Polish | $8 (full size product)
A Glossybox exclusive, this nail polish is a beautiful inky blue & I know I'll get a lot of wear out of this during the colder months if I can finally kick my nail biting habit! It might even be a one coat wonder, they're my favourite kind of polishes!
Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick in Mandarina | £20 (full size product)
Every box this month will contain a lipstick from Bellapierre and I believe there are three different shades. Bright orange isn't my colour, but I'm sure I'll be able to find someone who will happily take this off my hands because it's stunning.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara | £19.50 for the full size (sample size product)
After hearing so many good things about Tarte, this mascara is my favourite item in my box this month. The packaging is amazing, I've never seen a mascara tube quite like this before & the brush is a really nice shape. I've only used this once so far but I must say, I'm not sure I'm sold on it. I was expecting to be wowed upon first use, but we'll see. Maybe it's one that will get better with time.
