Glossybox UK - Review / Unboxing - July 2014

I'd been looking forward to this month's Glossybox ever since I saw on facebook that they were promising four full sized products in the box. I also really liked the idea that the box was US themed as it suggested there'd be some new brands to discover.

As you can see, Glossybox have designed a very fitting box for the 'Stars and Stripes', United States, theme of the box this month - I think it looks fab and it'll definitely be one to keep for storage.

The box promises four full sized products and that all of the items are American beauty heroes - As you can see, from the box, there's some rather exciting looking things in there!

First up we have a full sized Carmex lip balm. I didn't try Carmex until earlier this year and I really liked it, though I do have an almost full pot as I have So many lip balms. That said, I Loooove lip balms so I am not going to mind having a backup for one of the good ones. This balm is worth £2.69 and it's a nice thing to get in a box because it's the sort of the thing that people may just never have got around to picking up.

The next item is a Bellapierre Cosmetics mineral lipstick. I've had various Bellapierre items in boxes before but they've tended to be powder shadows or blushes which have always been beautiful but just aren't the type of item I use much. As such it's nice to get something that's going to get much more use.

The lipstick I got is called 'Mandarina' which is a really orangey shade and I love orange shades for summer so I am looking forward to wearing this one. 

The shade swatches as a deep orange/red shade and it's got a really creamy, soft texture with a lovely look to it. I am definitely looking forward to wearing it soon. This lipstick is worth £20, wow. 

I'm Always happy to see a Color Club polish in a box, I love Color club! I actually already have an Essie polish which is a similar shade to this but I'd like to see how this one looks on the nails. Yay, full sized Colour club, too! These cost $8 and this shade is called 'Glossy Seal', the shade was formulated especially for this July Glossybox which is rather exciting.

Next up we have a Pur Minerals 'Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque' - I've seen various mentions of Pur Minerals online so I was really pleased to see this in my box. If I'm going to try out some skincare I'm definitely not going to complain if it's a mask, too, I love face masks. This is a 15g tube so it's not huge but I'm going to try and get a couple of uses out of it. A 120g tube costs £18. 

The last product is this eyeshadow primer by ABSOLUTE New York - I like eye shadow primers, this one is a budget one at $4.99 but I've loved some budget offerings in the past so I am looking forward to finding out how good this one is. This one will fall straight in to my collection as I love shadow primers and can't wait to see what this is like.

And that's the box, full of full sized cosmetics, some budget, some higher value plus a lovely higher value face mask too. I'm rather pleased with this box, there's some brands that I might not have discovered otherwise and there's some beautiful products in there too.
