What's Inside My July 2014 Glossybox - Stars & Stripes Edition

July's Glossybox has landed and what a little corker it is!

First up, you cannot miss the striking Stars & Stripes packaging on the box much fun. My son has already claimed this for his lego!!

The theme this month is American Beauty Heroes.. so what is inside my July Glossybox?

Ok first up my least favourite item in the box..

Color Club Nail Polish in shade Glossy Seal - Full Size $8

This is a specially created shade for Glossybox but I am just not a fan of blue polishes (unless they are a Tiffany blue) so this will be given to someone who is. Color Club polishes are made with non toxic, cruelty free ingredients.

ABSOLUTE New York Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer - Full Size $4.99

I am not familiar with this brand at all and I am looking forward to putting this eye primer to the test. It claims to be oil-free and ultra creamy. It will even tone around the eye area and keep eyeshadow crease free... watch this space!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-1 Mascara (sample size) - Full size £19.50 

Apparently this is a US mascara hero product with its lengthening, curling, volumizing and conditioning properties. Well I love a good mascara as I don't wear false lashes or lash inserts or extensions so a review will follow soon. Fingers crossed it is as good as it sounds. As this is a mini product this is great to pop in your makeup bag for a weekend away.

Carmex Lip Balm - Full Size £2.49

Carmex Lip Balm has almost iconic status around the world and I haven't actually tried the original,  I hear it is tingling and I am not sure about that as I have quite sensitive lips. I may or may not be brave, if not this is going to my sister who loves it!

Bellapierre Cosmetics Limited Mineral Lipstick in shade Mandarina £20 

I have seen quite a few people moan about the inclusion of an orange lipstick in their box but I have to say I am absolutely delighted with it (the other shades were a pink or a red). I love a good orange lipstick in the Summer. Bright and fun.

Mandarina is a gorgeous true matte orange.

As soon as the box arrived I popped the lipstick on and got many compliments on the school run. This will be coming on holiday with me!

The only thing I would say is that your lips do need to be in tip top condition to wear it as it does cling to dry bits.

I have no idea why the pic is showing my lips looking a bit odd, the pic on my computer is completely even!
