Glossybox Stars and Stripes

Thursday, July 17, 2014

This month's theme is America and the Stars and Stipes box has been specially designed for the July Glossybox. The box is full of American brands, which we love here in GB.



 

Inside there are 5 products, 4 of them full size. 

 

First I will start with Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Mineral Lipstick - RRP £20, full size.
I was quite excited for this lipstick, unfortunately though the colour is Ruby and I already have too many red shades in my cosmetics bag. This lipstick is formulated with natural waxes, mineral pigments and antioxidants including Vitamin C and Vitamin E, providing long lasting colour and protection against the sun. I am a big fan of mineral makeup but I think this colour is just a bit too much for me. 


Another full size product is this Eyeshadow Primer by Absolute New York - RRP $4.99
I was really happy to find this in the Glossybox, as I've wanted an eyeshadow primer/concealer for a long time but didn't know exactly which one to go for. Thank you Glossybox for making the decision for me! It is oil-free and has an ultra creamy formula which evens skin tone around the eye area and keeps eyeshadow crease-free and colour-true for a lasting look. It can also be worn alone to neutralise redness and brighten eyes. 



This celebrity and makeup artist favourite lip balm by Carmex is also a full size product and is loved all over the world. Alfred Woelbing invented Carmex lip balm in the USA in the 1930s. The Woelbing family still runs the business today and as the world's most loved lip balm, over 130 are sold every minute worldwide. Carmex's unique formula soothes, moisturises and relieves - resulting in soft, healthy looking-lips. With menthol, camphor and beeswax, lips are nourished, conditioned and protected from the elements all year around. RRP £2.69



 

Color Club nail polish is proudly made in New York with only non-toxic, cruelty free ingredients. The shade Glossy Seal has been especially formulated for the July Glossybox! It has been decided - for the weekend I will have blue nails! RRP $8 for 15ml



Juice beauty is an organic brand and this 15ml sample product is the Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer, perfect for lightweight daily wear. It is chemical-free, has broad-spectrum sun protection with peptides, DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, Co Q10 and organic fruit antioxidants to revitalise and protect for optimum age-defying benefits. £35.75 for 50ml.



I love this month's Glossybox! I am much more familiar with American products now and and am very impressed with the box and packaging. I can't wait to try all these products. 

I am also thinking of giving away this Bellapeirre Mineral Lipstick, so if you are interested, comment below!

  1. Nii kahju, et Eestis/Eestisse ei saa selliseid ilukarbikesi tellida :( Vaatan iga kord huvi ja väikse kadeusega neid postitusi :D

    1. Jaa, siin Inglismaal on neid nii palju erinevaid! Õnneks on nad hea hinnaga ka, nii et alati tuleb karbi sisu vähemalt kolme kordselt tagasi. Eestis oli vist kunagi selline karp nagu Adore Box - Avasta Ilu? Aga nad on vist oma tegevuse lõpetanud.

    2. Kunagi oli veel glambox või miskit taolist ka, aga mõlemad on oma tegevuse järsku ära lõpetanud. Usun, et klientuuri oleks küll, kui üks korralik box eesti turul ka saadaval oleks, mis ei maksaks liiga palju :D Praegu saab tellida StellariumBox'i, aga minu jaoks on 50 eurot natuke palju välja käia toodete eest, mida ma võib-olla ei kasutakski :)

    3. Olen Sinuga nõus, 50 eurot on tõesti palju. Iseenesest Glossybox võiks laiendada oma tegevust teistes riikides ka. Hetkel saab seda karpi tellida 16 riigis(Poolas, Austrias, Rootsis, Norras jne). Ehk peaks keegi Eestist jõud nendega ühendama!

  2. Tere Jana! Olen Sinu blogi aktiivne jälgija, nagu söbranna kohustuseks ja röömuks ikka. :D

    Märkisid postituses, et tulipunane huulepulk pole päris sinu maitse ja ehk annaksid selle edasi.

    Pean möönama, et minu praegune elu deidimaastikul on hektiline, mistöttu tuleb alati olla korrastatud - kunagi ei tea, mis järgmisena juhtub.
    Kui sul on soovi ära anda punane huulepulk, siis mina olen küll valmis seda headel ;) eesmärkidel kasutama! :)

    Edu edaspidiseks blogimiseks!

    Sinu T.
