Another Glossybox, already? It seems like we only had July's not too long ago.
Anyway. Glossybox have been using themes on their boxes of late, not just for special occasions. This is the 'international superstars' box*. They've choose various products from different locations around the globe.
Lipcote - Lipstick Sealer
£3.99 / 75ml
One of my very first posts was after I purchased this. I never got round to reviewing as I couldn't get on with it. A few months ago every blogger was raving about this so when I saw it in my box I thought I'd give it another ago. Two things I can't get past is the strong chemical smell and the nail polish type applicator.
DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil
£18.50 / 200ml
I've never used an oil cleanser though I've always wanted to. Directions for this are to warm up in palms, apply to face and then rinse.
I was actually messing about with Illamasqua's Disciple lippie a little while ago (really dry, matte navy blue) so thought I'd take it off with this. I swiped my hand across my mouth and my entire lip colour was gone. I was thinking I'd have to work to get rid of it because it's a very dark colour and has a lot of sticking power. I was surprised at how well this worked and how hydrated it left my skin. Definitely makes me want to look into picking up a regular oil cleanser.
Alessandro - Pro White
£7.85 / 10ml
Something I'm looking forward to trying is this. I don't have stained nails but I feel they aren't very bright. I will blog more in depth about it when I stop using Nail Envy and use this.
Glossybox - Lipstick - Glossy Pink
£9.50 / 4g
Glossybox decided to pop in another one of their branded extras. I have to admit this is miles better than the brush included in the June box. It's a medium dusky rose pink. When I twisted it up, I wasn't expecting to like it but on application I really liked the colour. It's not too bright and not too pale, it seems a really universal shade. I wore it to work and got a few compliments on it which is always nice.
Vera Valenti - Eyeshadow Palette
This seems to be the miss of the box. The palette design is very childlike. It has an odd range of colours. Half of which, when I attempted to swatch wouldn't show up on the back of my hand. Definitely not something I will be using.
Valentino - Valentino Assoluto EDP
£61 / 50ml
I'm so rubbish at describing fragrances but it's very floral and fresh. Definitely seems like a light Summer fragrance.
A bit of a hit and miss box it seems with most. The only thing I don't like is the palette, I will be using everything else though. I am so tempted to invest in the DHC cleanser but I think I'll wait till I clear a bit of room on my bathroom shelf before I buy.
What did you think of this months?
Apparently next month is going to be their most unique box yet. Ominous ...
