I love their pretty pink boxes! And since one of my favorite colors is pink, it's no surprise that I collect them and use it to store my beauty treasures.

Glossybox August 2015 Items

I totally love this month's items, so many goodies that are perfect for me!

Items in detail:

Glossybox August 2015 Pop Eyeliner
Pop Beauty - Kajal Pen in Sooty Black
Full Size .9g/0.03oz, Value $10

This eyeliner goes on smooth, has a matte finish and the color is very pigmented. It also has a built-in smudger that will allow you to easily blend the color, great for a smokey eye look!

Glossybox August 2015 Spa Ritual Nail Polish
SpaRitual Nail Polish in Arroyo
Full Size .5 fl oz / 15 ml, Value $12

SpaRitual nail polishes are vegan and formulated without DBP, toulene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin. I have some nail polishes by them already and am a huge fan, so I was super happy when I saw this in the box!

There are different colors that subscribers receive and I got the color Arroyo which is a Sandy Matte Shimmer color, and it really is matte. I love both the color and that it's matte, but if you don't, just put on a regular top coat and it'll make the color glossy.

Here's a picture of the shade on me:

The shade looks quite natural with pink undertones. The picture doesn't really show it, but it really is matte with some shimmer. Love it!

Glossybox August 2015 Manna Lash Primer
Manna Kadar - Lash Primer
Full Size 4g, Value $24

This lash primer creates volume and is developed to nourish and enhance lashes, while creating a base coat that enhances your mascara's effects. It can be worn alone at night as a conditioner too. I've used lash primers from other brands before, so I'm happy I received one in this box and will surely be using this.

Glossybox August 2015 Glamglow
GLAMGLOW YOUTHCLEANSE™ Daily Exfoliating Cleanser
Travel Size 1oz/30g, Value $7.80

I've been a fan of Glamglow and have been using their masks religously for the past few years. So when they came out with a cleanser this year, I just had to try it and instantly fell in love. It's just as good as their masks! Needless to say, I was again ecstatic when I saw this was included in the box.

This cleanser transforms from mud into a foaming lather and it will gently exfoliate and cleanse your skin to create a more youthful-looking, glowing complexion. Formulated with Brazilian superfruits acai, guarana, and acerola, it provides potent antioxidants. Safe to use everyday even on my sensitive skin, and I find great results in keeping blemishes away. So glad I have this in travel size!

Glossybox August 2015 Lip Gloss
Lollipops Cosmetics - Lip Balm in Délicieuse
Full Size 10ml/0.33 fl.oz, Value $4.50

I believe there are two variations of this lip balm and I received Délicieuse. This lip balm goes on clear and has a sweet scent of vanilla. It's rich and oily so it applies smooth and glossy (like applying Vaseline to your lips). Its formula is enriched with Tepescohuite extract, a Mexican plant known for its regenerative capabilities, and macadamia nut oil so chapped lips are healed fast! It also has anti-oxidant vitamin E that protects against damage from UV rays and pollution. And important fact, it's also paraben free.

So far I'm loving this lip balm. I woke up with chapped lips today so I put this product to test and it did soothe and moisturize it almost instantly. Great product and the fact that it's made in France, well that's just perfect.

My Thoughts: I absolutely loved this month's items, every single one of them! That's major for me and I couldn't be happier about signing up with them again. The brands and products that they featured are up to my standards and fit my beauty needs, no complaints here. And 4 out of 5 items were full-sized which is AH-Mazing! I can't rave enough about this month's box ;)
