July Glossybox

It's always a jolly day when my Glossybox arrives on my work desk. This months box is based on American beauty products named Stars and Stripes. I love a different look box, and this one doesn't disappoint. Now I must admit, after venturing to America myself last year, and sampling some of their beauty products, I think there could of been better choices, but overall I liked the items this month.

Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd - Mineral Lipstick

This lipstick immediately stood out to me (it might be something to do with my lip product obsession!). This mineral lipstick includes natural waxes and mineral pigments which makes applying this a dream, it slides on to your lips perfectly. A perfect red shade for the summer, and of course includes, everyones favourite friend in a product... SPF!

ABSOLUTE New York - Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer

I am always sceptical at trying new eyeshadow primers as I have tried so many and then gone back to my trusty NARS or Urban Decay products. However, all items deserve a shot! I'll certainly be giving this a go, and with such a reasonable price tag, I hope it's a keeper!

Carmex - Lip Balm

I defy anyone to say they've not tried this cult classic! I always have a little pot or tube of this stuff around. It's brilliant, reasonably priced, and gives great results. I always apply a little underneath my lipsticks or glosses to give that added softness.

Color Club - Glossy Seal

I'd never heard of this brand before, but so glad it arrived this month. This nail polish is really great. One coat gives a lovely opaque finish with lots of shine without the need for a top coat. The wearability was great, lasting days before chipping. I would normally choose brighter colours for the summer months, but this colour really reminds me of being on a boat in the gorgeous blue sea while on holiday, so guess it could be durable for summer too. Lovely product. 

Juice Beauty - Green Apple SPF 15 Moisturizer

As soon as I get a bit of a tan on my face in the summer months, my skin gets really dry, so I'm always on the lookout for new moisturisers and products to help. I really like the sound of this particular one, green apple makes it sound fresh and inviting. I'm definitely going to give this a thorough test and hope to see good results. 

So that's it for my Glossybox this month, and with 4 full size products in the box, I'd say it's been a good one. Anyone else get anything different?
