What's in my August Glossybox.

I realise it seems a bit like Glossybox O'Clock here at the moment as I was so late getting my July box published, but I've really enjoyed this month and just had to give you my thoughts.



I have to admit, I really love this month's theme: International Superstars. I always welcome the chance to try products that aren't easily accessible in the UK and this box is an absolute treat. 

In my box I received: 

Allesandro: Pro White Nail Polish
DHC: Deep Cleansing Oil
All For Eve: Eve's Balm
Vera Valenti: L'Ombre a Paupiere Margarita
Lipcote
Glossybox Lipstick in Glossy Pink

 Winners & Losers 

Overall I'm really impressed with this month's offering. But my star item has to be Lipcote. I've wanted to try this product for ages and it really does what it sets out to do. I used with the bonus Glossy Pink Lipstick and it didn't budge for 5 hours, not bad! (I'm loving this lip colour by the way!)
I gave the Allesandro Pro White a whirl and whilst I didn't notice immediate brightening, it'll work as a lovely base coat. 
I'm always in the market for a good balm and the All for Eve Balm is a winner. I love the fact it has a really herbal fresh scent and the mirror in the compact is a nice touch. The fact that all of the profits go to a good cause makes it an even more special little product. 
I'm currently wading through an entire drawer full of various oils but my first impressions of the DHC Oil are good. I think I'll keep this for going away as it's such a convenient size.
The only product that really did let me down this month was the Vera Valenti Eyeshadow Palette. I initally thought it was a colour correcting concealer palette but on closer inspection found it was eye shadow. This wasn't a problem but the quality of the product is...a bit naff. There is no pigmentation and the texture is chalky. I imagine this will end up with a friends daughter as it really only warrants being used a dressing up make up. 

Apart from this small blip I really think Glossybox have pulled together a really nice box this month. 

I'd love to see more like this in the future!
