Glossybox July 2014 - Stars and Stripes Review! ♥

14 July 2014

Hello!

 It's that lovely time of the month again where a GlossyBox filled with goodies comes through my post box. As I ordered my June box quite late in the month, I was surprised to hear that my July one was being sent to me only a few weeks later. Nevertheless, I was excited to see this month's box as GlossyBox has been leaving little teasers on their Instagram and Twitter and from the sounds of it, it was going to be a very make-up heavy box. Perfect!

This month's theme is based around the best of American products and aptly named "Stars and Stripes". The products come in a lovely American flag decorated box which is a nice change from their usual pink. This is definitely one I will keep and make use of in the future. This box also didn't come with a little magazine so I'm not sure if it's a regular thing or just every once in a while?





In this months box I got:

Bellapierre Cosmetics - Mineral Lipstick in Ruby
RRP - £20

ABSOLUTE New York - Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer
RRP - $4.99

Carmex Lip Balm
RRP - £2.69

Color Club - Glossy Seal Nail Varnish
RRP - $8 for 15ml

NYC New York Color - Cream to Powder Blush Stick in Soho Pink
RRP - £2.99 per pack
 
 Overall I'm really impressed with this month's box and I'm genuinely excited to try out all of these products. I have to say I'm a little disappointed that I could quite easily go to a Boots or a Superdrug and probably pick up the NYC Blush and the Carmex lip balm which sort of ruined the whole American Products theme as I expected more American goodies which are less accessable over here in the UK. Other than that, it's a big thumbs up from me on this one GlossyBox and I'm already looking forward to August's Box!

  1. Ooh, it looks like quite a nice box! I'm tempted to get it just for the packaging! That box is perfect for storing anything in!

  2. I love how thoughtful they are at packaging everything - even the ribbon! I had birchbox for a few months and they literally just put things in a bag and then in a box! The presentation is so much nicer with Glossy Box :)

    1. I would definitely look into it. Every Birchbox I've seen never looks as good as the Glossybox :)

  5. Ahh how adorable is this. I'm from California, and I have to say that most of these products (Carmex especially, I love them, but none of my friends have even heard of them) aren't really as popular over here compared to the UK.

    1. Really? That's a shock because this box was meant to be popular products from the USA because apart from the Carmex and NYC, I've never heard of them. Oh well, they're still great products :)

  6. Lovely items! I always seem to go back to Carmex! :)

    1. You really should! :) Every box I've been sent has had new products I've never even heard of and actually loved. You can cancel at any time if you don't want them anymore :) xo
