It’s that time again! The Glossybox August 2015 has arrived. The contents are pretty good; a solid selection of mostly make-up that will hopefully keep most people happy as there’s definitely something for everyone, including one or two bits that should evoke a little bit of a excitement.
There are five products in the August 2015 Glossybox, two of which are full-sized make-up items, followed by a decent sample sized make-up item, a full-sized skincare product and a full-sized body product.
Starting with the Emite Artist Colour Powder Blush in shade 108, which to me looks a little more like a bronzer, although it’ll probably be a more flattering blush shade on darker skin tones. It’s full-sized and a very decent 10gs at that, plus the texture is lovely. I think a lot of these ranges include their products in beauty boxes to gain brand awareness, and I’m certainly now paying attention to Emite. Next is the full-sized skincare which is the Naobay Calming Face Toner. I think Naobay have recently featured in a beauty box and I remember liking the packaging, plus I’m a toner addict, so I’m happy to try this – interestingly (or not…) toners seem to be the one product I can actually use up. Gripping stuff…
The other full-sized make-up product is a MeMeMe Lipglide in Playful Peach, which is a creamy matte pencil that I think would work really well as a blush too, making it a great travel option if you’re off on holiday and want to keep your makeup low key. Next is the Manna Kadar Lash Primer which is designed to nourish and condition lashes and can be used under mascara. There are quite a few of these lash primers launching recently, so it seems they’re having a bit of a moment. Finally there’s the Sass Purifying Cleanser. “Ah, a face wash!” I hear you cry, but no, it’s actually an intimate wash, although the enclosed Glossybox pamphlet kind of hints at this being a body wash, I think it’s safe to say it’s for your foof. Sass are a range of intimate maintenance products (how’s that for phrasing?) that are quite new on my radar, but I have to say, I like their approach and packaging, so I’m happy to give their cleanser a go.
See? Not a bad box at all, and actually I don’t think there are any products I’m unhappy to have included. Four full-sized products, one of which is worth over £20 (the blusher) makes this a great value, well-edited box. For more info, head to the Glossybox site here – link.
Hmmm… it didn’t wow me but it isn’t the worst box I have seen from Glossybox x
