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.

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 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.
