Glossybox August 2015

Glossybox gives you 5 deluxe samples of beauty products a month for $21.00 plus $5.00 shipping to Canada but do get cheaper with longer terms.  The buzz on the interweb feels that Glossybox has one of the best packaging of any of the boxes.  Every month they curate a selection of high-end, niche, and trendy beauty products in deluxe travel sizes that they send out and I’ve been happy with their offerings so far.  They have been shipping to Canada for a little while now and most of the time you get the specialty boxes.

The info card is one of the better ones out there.  It gives you a pretty good blurb about the items you are receiving and tips or tidbits on using them to get the most out of them.

The box is always the same size so this month when the samples are smaller items they can look lost in all the squiggles.

Pop Beauty Kajal Pen in Sooty Black-$10.00 Full Size

This is another black eyeliner.  The difference in this one is that is comes with a smudgy foam on the other end so you can create a smoky eye easily. It also means this liner smears really easily.  It does glide on nicely, with no tugging though.  It will join my growing collection of black liners.

Sparitual Nail Lacquer in Arroyo-$12.00 Full Size

This is a vegan polish made with responsibly sourced ingredients.  I love this colour!! It’s a lilacy-pink with lots of shimmer.  They sent out multiple colours so I’m now curious to know what others got because  this made me really happy.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Lash Primer-$24.00 Full Size

I was starting to be sad to see another mascara in the box and then once I realised it’s a lash primer I changed my tune.  I have never used or received a lash primer before.  This is used under your regular mascara to stop it from flaking and keep you looking good all day.  You can also put it on after washing your face before bed to have conditioned lashes when you wake up.

Glamglow Youthcleanse Daily Clearing Cleanser-30g $7.80

This is the only non-full sized item in the box this month.  I’ve receieved some other Glamglow products and I have liked them alot.  This starts off as a mud and then lathers with water to get rid of all the stuff on your face.  It also some scrubbers in it to exfoliate as you go.

Lollipops Makeup Lip Balm-$5.50 Full Size

I have no idea what flavour this is but it’s great.  It kinda seems like maybe Buttercream.  It is not coloured at all just a clear balm to keep your lips soft and chap free.  As you can see from the picture those stupid squiggles leave dust everywhere.  Small price to pay for keeping things safe I guess.

This months box has a value of $59.30, which is double what I pay for it.  I’m thrilled that it was four full sized items and one bigger sized sample.  I like all of the items this time, even the liner.  I am in love with the polish and can’t wait to paint my nails.  This box is slightly more expensive then the other beauty ones I get but it really is worth it for the stuff you get.
