Wow, GLOSSYBOX, just wow! I simply cannot believe we received over $90 of great products this month. They didn't kid when they claimed the Pure Luxury theme. I'm so happy to try everything I received this month. While the shades I received in the Illamasqua Nail Varnish (Radium) and Ellis Faas lip product (L109 Pale Coffee) aren't shades I'd probably pick up for myself, I'm excited to give them a try. I think the Pale Coffee lip color will be a nice, warm nude shade for fall. The nail varnish is a bit brighter and greener than I usually go for, but it's a unique color and I've been wanting to try an Illamasqua polish for ages and here's by chance to try out the formula before I splurge on one of their polishes. I'm really looking forward to trying the hair and skincare items as well. I'll let you know what I thought of everything in next month's post.
July GLOSSYBOX. I thought the Sebastian Color Ignite Shampoo was quite nice. It left my hair feeling moisturized and soft. The coordinating conditioner seemed a little too light and not rich enough for my liking. The Blushed fragrance towelette smelled divine, but I found the towelette itself a little awkward to use (I'll stick with traditional spritz applications). I'm enjoying the Senna Cosmetics eye shadow trio, but I think I prefer the matte shades from my Urban Decay Naked palette as they seem to suite my skin tone a bit better. The Alessandro International Heel Rescue Balm seems decent, but no better or worse than most of the other foot creams I've used in the past. Unfortunately, I found the scent of the Figs & Rouge balm a little too strong, so I haven't used it a ton.
Overall, I felt the July box had a nice array of products. Mostly I enjoyed them, but I didn't discover any new favorites.
