August 2014 Glossybox…

For those who don’t know Glossybox is a monthly subscription for high end  beauty Products. It’s 21.00 a month. And you get 5-6 products in each box. These are products that are found around the world. I’ll show you what I got in my August box and if you wish to sign up too I’ll post a link at the end.

This months box celebrated their 3 year anniversary. So that’s how long they’ve been around and I’ve been signed up with them sense they started. It has been interesting getting the boxes over the years. I’ve found products that I never heard of now love and got to try products that I would not have had the money to try otherwise. They’ve also put in brands that I already love and can’t live without. There have been boxes I wasn’t happy with as with all subscription boxes there’s always gonna be one month that you’re not happy with.

Anyways I’ll stop rambling and get onto my August box…

The swatches have no base or primer under them. I do that to give ya an idea on how pigmented a product is with out it. I know when I see swatches without primer it gives me an idea on how much I’ll have to work with it to give me the look I’m trying to achieve.

Here’s the box…

This is the card that came in the box. It gives the descriptions of the products and how much each product costs full size.

I like Eyeco products. I’ve gotten an eyeliner from them before and I believe it was from this box too haha. But it was a purple one last time. This one is a black one. These are the kind of liners I prefer. This retails for $16.00

This is a cream highlighter made by Kryolan. It’s a special edition specifically made for Glossybox. Kryolan has added items that were made just for Glossybox before. This is called Cashmere. This product is very sheer and not full of glitter. It gives a nice glow, as you can see from the swatches it’s not over powering or highly pigmented. It’s a nice product that I will get use out of. I like highlighters that aren’t in your face full of sparkle. Full sizes of this product costs $18.95.

This is from Lamoon Beauty, I’m not sure if I’ve ever gotten something from them or not. Though, I do hope I get more from them I like this polish. This is called Trillion Dollar Red. Then again I love reds hehe. I can’t wait to wear this. Full size of this costs $5.95.

This is Eslor Firming Collagen Day Cream. I don’t usually use a day or night cream. I’m more of a simple lotion kind of girl. I’ll give this a try. See how I like it, and hopefully it doesn’t make me break out or itch like mad like some other products have. This costs $85.00 full size.

This is Uberliss hydrating shampoo & conditioner. Okay I’m not fond of this brand at all. I’ve used it and it makes my head itch like crazy. I gave this to my mom. She tried it and said it was okay. Wasn’t as hydrating as her Victoria Secret shampoo and conditioner. This retails for $23.90 for shampoo and $25.90 for the conditioner.

So this is a win lose box. It wasn’t a jump for joy box but it wasn’t bad either. So I guess we’ll see what we get next/this month… In the box for September… I did get a sneak peek for September and we’re supposed to get They’re real mascara. Not happy about that, I already know I don’t like it. October we’re supposed to get a polish from Nails Inc. I don’t mind that, I like getting polish. Then November we’re supposed to get Juice beauty’s Green apple Age Defy Moisturizer. I like this product so I’m happy about this one… Well that’s it for this post…
