Glossybox July 2013

 

 

glossybox_july

I feel like a horrible blogger lately, I have been sick and really couldn’t sit down and finish a blog post the last couple of days so I apologize. I have so many things coming up this week on the blog!

This is my third month with Glossybox, and I’m really loving it so far! This is always the last box that arrives in the month. Glossybox is a beauty subscription box that usually has 4-5 items in the box. It costs $21 but the value of the box is usually way more than the cost! You can check out my reviews Here & Here. I was really excited to open my box, I didn’t look at any spoilers this month so this box was 100% surprise (But probably because I forgot about it)!

Here’s what I got in July’s box:

nailsinc

Nails Inc Baker Street Nail Polish // Mini size Value $4 – Love the color of this polish! This is actually the first time I’ve tried the Nails Inc brand and I really like them! The color was completely opaque when I applied it to my nails. I really love this bright blue!

Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm Tube // Full-size Value $9 -I am excited to use this! I will take lip balm over lipstick any day!

Glossybox
Nicka K New York ABSOLUTE! Make-up Cleansing Tissues //10 sheets Value $1.49 – I love when boxes include make-up wipes! It’s something practical that I use almost every day. Glossybox has featured this brand before, and I really like them!

Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum //I received something like this in my July Birchbox and I’m not complaining! I love getting stuff for acne because I’ve fallen victim to adult acne 😦

glossybox

Bvlgari Shampoo & Shower Gel // 1 oz Value $6- I’m not sure if I love the scent of this, it’s ok, but not really my favorite.

Brazilian Blowout Acai Deep Conditioning Mask // 1 oz Value $5 – This smells good and I will definitely be using this on my poor dry & damaged hair.

I paid $21 for this box and I will use all of the items in the box! I was pleasantly surprised to see 6 items in my box! This box did not have an amazing value like some of the other boxes- but the face that I will use all of the products in this box makes it more valuable than most!

Glossybox “American Beauty” June 2013 Review

Hello Gorgeous!

I finally got my Glossybox in the mailbox yesterday! It was at the same USPS sorting facility for 4 days! What makes it worse is, the sorting facility was only a little over an hour from my house! It’s here though, so I can’t complain too much. I ended up ordering two boxes this month. Both boxes ended up being exactly the same minus the nail polish colors. I loved the packaging this month! I Loved the change from the regular pink box to the white box with the “Glossy-girl” illustration.

glossybox american beauty june 2013

Here’s what was in my boxes:

glossybox

C. Booth Honey Almond Dry Oil Mist– 2 fl. oz. /Value $4.00

I just received a product similar to this in my July Julep box. I’m sure I will use it, but I don’t know if I like the smell of the product or not.

 

ODLR

Oscar de la Renta Essential Luxuries collection (6 samples)/ Est. Value $5

These ended up spilling and leaking all over both boxes. I’m not a huge fan, but I’m also a die-hard Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue fan. I’ll give these a chance, they don’t smell bad. They’re really strong scents though.

phillip B

Phillip B. Katira Hair Masque- 2 fl. oz./Value $13.30

I haven’t opened this up yet but I’m really excited to try a new product from this company. I’ve heard some good things about it when I did a search online.

sparitual.png 1

sparitual

SpaRitual favorites Nail Polish – colors: HIJINKS (Orange Shimmer) & Shooting Star (wine/purple shimmer) Value $12.00

I tried the color “Shooting Star” and it’s so pretty! I thought I was going to hate it, because I’m not usually into berry/wine colors but it’s a beauty purple with a lot of shimmer/fine glitter. This will be a perfect color for fall. I’m not that excited about the orange color, but I’ll give it a chance.

Tarte complexion enhancing lipstick

Tarte complexion enhancing lipstick (shade for fair to light) Value $14.50

I’m not big on lipstick. I will be trying this out though. the packaging is eco-friendly, but kind of flimsy. I would hate for the packaging of this product to get wet or slip into the sink because it’s made out of a cardboard maybe? I love the packaging colors though! I’m a huge Tarte fan so I hope this product is just as good as their other products.

Product description card/Dallas Shaw “Glossy Girl” illustration.  I like that the description card has the Glossy Girl illustration on the front of the card, and on the inside is the full description of the products. On the back of the card there is a note from Dallas Shaw.

The box also came with a June Glossyblog Mag. I thought it was finny that they still had a full article on Bondi New York. Even though they ended up having some issues and decided to pull out last minute. I’m happy they’re still in the magazine. It was a nice extra for the box.

Total value of each box was $48.83 

  I was not too pleased with the late shipping of this box. I ended up getting it yesterday (JULY 2nd) so I feel like they should work on shipping their boxes on time. Or the face that the perfume leaked all over both boxes.

Maybe I was a little too excited about these boxes. I was  most excited about the Bondi New York nail polish and that didn’t even end up in the box. Overall this month box was a great one so I can’t complain. I’m a sucker for limited edition and collaboration boxes!

Glossybox subscription is $21 a month. You get 5-6 deluxe samples and full-size products. Go to Glossybox.com to subscribe.

Lazy, rainy days

Hello There!

Hopefully the weather is a lot nicer where you are. Right now it looks like it wants to rain and the humidity is intense. The sky looks so depressing! I had planned to do some hiking today but I think that’s not going to happen now. I’m currently sitting indoors, looking out the window and enjoying my homemade iced coffee (thanks to the Samoa flavored coffee creamer!!!!) I’m seriously in love with the coconut & caramel flavor! I have gotten some great news about some of my subscription boxes today too!

The Summer FabFitFun VIP boxes will begin to ship next week (Finally!). They initially were supposed to ship around June 20th and honestly I don’t know what happened but I’m excited to get my first box! They just emailed me today to tell me that boxes were going to ship next week and that they would be charging my account soon. This will be FabFitFun’s second box and they ship every 3 months and cost $49.99. Every season there is a new box.  The boxes feature beauty, fashion, fitness, and wellness. The items are picked by Giuliana Rancic  and the FabFitFun team. I read a lot of reviews of people that were not satisfied with their spring VIP boxes. I’m taking a gamble with this box but I really hope this month will be a lot better. The only thing I don’t like is that their website is going through a lot of construction and I have had problems logging in. Fortunately, the customer service team has been awesome and has answered pretty fast. To order your own box go to https://vip.fabfitfun.com/

June’s Glossybox should be in my mailbox tomorrow! I finally got an email today with my tracking info and it’s going to be out for delivery tomorrow! I should have a review of June’s American Beauty Glossybox on Saturday! Honestly, I’m starting to get frustrated with Glossybox’s unpredictable shipping and the fact that it’s almost July is a little redic if you ask me. You can check out my spoiler’s HERE and you can still order the box HERE.

Glossybox June 2013 confirmed spoilers

I just recently found out what’s going to be in June’s “American Beauty” Glossybox! Glossybox collaborated with fashion illustrator/it-girl, Dallas Shaw this month and I’m really excited for this box to get to make it’s way to my mail box.

Here’s what will be in the June American Beauty Glossy box via Dallas Shaw’s Blog

glossybox arew

It looks fabulous! I love that she designed the box and there will even be an illustration in the box to enjoy!

On the Glossybox website it said my box had an estimated delivery for today, June 19th but with some apparent issues with one of the products they were going to feature, I received this email from Glossybox on June 17th:

On Dallas Shaw’s Blog  She had this to say:
“I would like to share a small change in the collaboration with my followers, fans and friends. When the nail company we originally planned to include defaulted on their plan to provide the polish, we decided to replace it with a different product on my love list (one that has also been personally chosen by me and which I feel confident that you’ll enjoy). I apologize for any confusion this caused subscribers and I thank you for the amazing faith you always placed in me and my brand.”

Regardless, I think I will order some of the Bondi nail polish because they seem like a great company and I’m really curious about their products. They’re a fairly new company and from the website they seem to have a great selection of products! I love that the names of the nail polishes are New York themed.

I’m also happy that I picked up another box for only $15, so I will be getting two boxes this month and at the time I used the PROMO CODE: “LOVE” for a full-sized ModelCo eyeshadow but I think that the code is now expired you can use the PROMO code: GIFT for a Full-size ModelCo Lip/cheek tint.
You can still get your own American Beauty Glossybox for this month just go to Glossybox.com and don’t forget about the PROMO code: GIFT for your extra beauty gift! Subscriptions are $21 per month and I think the value of the products in the box are well worth it and pay for the box themselves.

Glossyboxes?! My very lucky day!

Hey Everyone!

I guess the subscription box gods loved me yesterday because not only did my Julep Maven June box come in the mail, my May 2013 Glossybox came! I was shocked to see that there were two Glossybox packages in my mailbox. At first, I thought that maybe I had gotten charged for both… I frantically checked my bank account and I had gotten both boxes for only $21.00! Everything in both boxes were exactly the same (Except one had my free eyeliner in it from my promo code). I ended up giving the second box to my mother, why? Because I love her and she never buys stuff for herself, and two I was a horrible teenager who would raid her beauty supply on a regular!

The month of May Glossybox turned one! Happy Birthday Glossybox! && thank you for both amazing boxes!

I used the promo code “wink” and got a free eyeliner with my first box! It a matte brown liquid liner, I’m not huge on wearing brown I prefer Black liquid liner but hey, free is free! I will probably end up using it eventually. That promo code is now expired, but you can use the Promo code “LOVE” for a full sized ModelCo eyeshadow ($22 value)

When I initially opened my box, they had the Glossybox Mag right on top which had some really amazing articles in it about beauty from all around the world, Lash Lust and an article about one of my new favorite bloggers/it-girls/Fashion illustrators, Dallas Shaw! She collaborate with Glossybox for June’s special edition box called “American Beauty”. Everything in the box is made here in America and Dallas Shaw personally picked out. I have to say, I am obsessed with her style! I can see why she has worked with brands like DKNY, Chanel, Kate Spade, Anthropologie and more. You can see some of the spoilers for the June box from my post a couple days ago. I think this is going to be the best box yet! If you haven’t subscribed to Glossybox, go to Glossybox.com (The box will ship the end of this month)

In both boxes I got :

This was the first box, with my eyeliner I got from using the promo code- WINK

My second box that went to my mom:

photo (7)

sample of Epionce intense anti-aging+ Repair serum This sample is really, really small but I look forward to using the expensive brand lol. I don’t think I would pay $136.00 Full price for the 30 ml you get for that price, but I’m curious about how the product is going to be! (my sample was 4 ml and a value $18) (Full size is 136.00/30ml)

1 Etre Belle collagen & aloe vera hydro mask- I’m actually really excited to try this mask! I will try to review the products when I actually have the chance to use them. (value $3.95) (Full size is valued at $39.50/10 masks)

European wax center In box boxes I got two samples each (4 in total, which I’m guessing are about $1 each?) 1 “The exfoliate” (4ml) ,1 Slow it down body wash, 2 Slow it down body lotions ($4.00? value for all) .I also got a coupon for a free bikini line wax/eyebrow wax or underarm wax! YAY! – I’m not going to guess how much those would be, but the value is great and I will definitely be locating the spa near me to use it!

A full size ModelCo lip duo lipstick & shine ultra lipgloss (Retails for $39!) I personally didn’t like the lipstick, but my mom did. In both boxes they were the same shade. I however did love the lipgloss. It smells amazing and isn’t sticky at all! the packaging even has a cute mirror on it, perfect for your purse!

swatches of both the lipgloss and lipstick:

Nicka K New York- Absolute! Perfume stick Full size!! (Full size retails at $14.99/ .29 oz.) I am in love with this smell. It has a citrus smell to it which is one of my favorites. I wore it today and mixed it with my Dolce and Gabbana light blue and had my own amazing signature scent. (I felt very glamorous) . In both boxes the scents and sizes were the same.

Sebastian professional volupt spray- (travel size worth $6.69/) full size is $19.95/5.07 oz. I also got a coupon with for the Sebastian professional line to use at Ulta for a free 1.5 oz. SHAPER or SHAPER plus with any $15 Sebastian purchase ($8.95 value)

Box of my boxes together were valued at over $169.00! each box was worth about $84.00 not including the free wax coupon, eyeliner or the Ulta coupon.

I think this monthly subscription box is worth it. The packaging is adorable, it came in a light pink save-able box that I will be reusing. The products were good, I haven’t really heard of most of the brands in the box, but it’s nice to try products I wouldn’t have normally found out about. That’s the whole reason I love subscription boxes is trying new products and brands! I’m really not sure why I got two boxes in the mail, but I’m glad my mom got to get my extra box!
