So here is the August Glossybox, hot on the heels of the Olympics this is the International Superstars box. Apparently this box contains 'brands that are well known in the UK as well as products that have cult status in their native country...'
Here's what was in my Glossybox...
|DHC Deep Cleansing Oil 30ml - Fullsize £18.50/200ml|
|Alessandro Pro White - RRP £7.85/10ml|
|Lipcote RRP £3.99/7ml|
|Eve's Balm - Fullsize £4.99/7g|
A multi-purpose recovery balm to nourish dry, chapped bits! Great for chucking in your handbag with it's lil mirror! Have used it on lips but should be good on cuticles and nails too, the aroma is very natural and subtle, a lovely balm, I love balms!
|Vera Valenti Eyeshadow Palette - RRP £3.85|
An eyeshadow palette (from Spain). I like the neutrals and the darker greens but won't use the paler/minty greens (remember George and Mildred, well obviously just Mildred?). I used one of the neutral colours the other day and it actually went on ok and lasted quite well (it's got a very slight shimmer to it but not too much for daytime wear!). Chucked a few of the colours on my arm here ...... the applicators aren't great - bit flimsy, but what the heck eh?
|Glossybox Lipstick RRP £9.50|
That's more like it! The lipstick is 'Glossy Pink' a really pretty soft pink, thought it may be too pale for me but it wasn't and looked fine with my bit of tan!
So that's it. Overall I'm pleased with this box, some really nice products, the Eve's Balm and the lovely Glossybox lipstick are my initial faves.
Oh and here's a pic of George and Mildred from the late 70's, just in case any of you youngies were wondering? Fond memories of my grandparents watching this sitcom...!
