This months Glossy Box was the American theme ‘Stars & Stripes’. The Box was Beautifully decorated in the American Flag colours. The lid consisted of a Blue lid with white stars on it and the base was decorated in red & white stripes.

A beautiful Ltd Edition box which will be great for storage.

This months Glossy Box promised 4 full-sized products, which they delivered. This is what I received in my Box….

Bellápierre Cosmetics Ltd Mineral Lipstick in Ruby

This is a lovely Red lipstick. I don’t want to write too much about it as I will put it in this weeks Paint my Pout Daily Blog where I will go into depth about what I thought of this product. I do have high hopes for this product though as I have had a few BelláPierre products in the past and I have really enjoyed them.

ABSOLUTE New York Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer

I really liked this product. It comes in a concealer like tube. With the colour of a light concealer, I found that it neutralised my usually Pink eyelids quite well.

It is a very lightweight formula and has a really nice silky feeling on application. Now this should retail at $4.99 which is roughly £2.99 which I think is really good value.

Carmex Lip Balm

This product is available over here quite readily, and I have tried it before.

I’m not a huge fan of things that make your lips tingle and this is one of those products. It smells nice but I don’t like the effects of the product. It didn’t take long for my Boyfriend to steal it though.

Color Club – Glossy Seal

This is a really nice colour that has been formulated especially for this American Themed Glossy Box, which I thought was a nice touch.  A nice Teal colour it is a varnish colour that I would wear. Infact I think it will be the colour for this weeks Monday Manicure. The Formula wasn’t too thin and went on smoothly and dried quite fast.

Juice Beauty – Green apple SPF15 Moisturizer

I would not like to wear this product as a day moisturiser, I found it far too thick and quite greasy. It wasn’t quickly absorbed which I think would cause a problem if I were to wear it under make up. The smell of the product was delicious but I would probably have to wear it has a night cream as it is far too heavy for a day cream.

So that is what I received in my Glossy Box this month and what I thought about the products. The one thing I found disappointing is that there was no magazine in this months box, or if there was I didn’t receive one. L Over all I found that although this box didn’t blow me away like the last few boxes have it was a good box with some reasonably good products inside.
