Star Looks - July

My last Star Looks box. Just not feelin' it anymore.

St. Tropez Eyeshadow Palette
Sculpt and Brush Blush
Bonus - The Ultimate Bronze Set

Normally, I would have been ecstatic to receive this. But upon further inspection - the quality is terrible. I've heard that the shadows are hard and not very pigmented. The packaging makes it look super cheap - it looks much worse in person. Packing is important to me - I sometimes buy things just because of the packaging! Sorry no swatches - not planning on keeping it.

This brush is awesome! It's super soft and angled for a deep contour under the cheek bones. I've been meaning to pick up another blush brush so this is perfect.

Bonus - the ultimate body bronze set. You are supposed to mix the body butter and pigment together to make a bronzing cream. I am already natural tanned so I have no use for this. And I'm way too old for this! 

Star Looks is a great value @ $17.68 a month. But if you don't like the makeup - it's kinda a waste. I canceled before I received my box and I had to harass them just to get it sent - even though I already paid for it. Not cool. Good riddance. 

Glossybox - July

This months theme is all about blue.

Brazilian Blowout - Acai Deep Conditioning Masque 
Bvlgari - Shampooo & Shower Gel
Dr Brandt - BB Matte 
Figs & Rouge - Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm
Nails Inc - Baker Street Nail Polish 
Nicka K New York - Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Wipes

BB Matte! What a awesome product to try. Until I noticed that I got light to medium. Not going to work for me :(  I emailed but that's the only shade they have. Gb is going to send me something else.

I love hair products but I have heard only bad things about Brazilian Blowout. They are rumored to use high levels of cancer causing chemicals. While the masque may not contain cancer causing chemicals, I don't feel comfortable using it. I already traded it w/ a few other items for a Enchanted Polish! Score :)

OMG - Bvlgari again? They sent out the soap & bath tea already of this fragrance. I'm not a perfumy girl so meh. It could be worse I suppose.

The makeup cleansing tissues are a bonus to the box. I love makeup wipes - this will definitely be used.

I love little nail minis! They sent baker street - a gorgeous cobalt blue color.

I was so excited to try Figs & Rouge until I noticed it was cherry. I hate everything cherry - the smell makes me dry heave. The packaging is super cute and I love that it's petroleum free.

So much better than last month! What do you think of the July box?
You can get a similar box here for $21 a month

Glitter Daze - July

My very first Glitter Daze box. I have to admit - I'm in love! 

Love the cute packaging.

July's theme is Summer

Summer Garden Polish - This is gorgeous! It's a full size polish with a white base & all kinds of colors of glitters in different shapes. It also has pink flowers, yellow flowers and pink butterflies.

Nightfall in NYC Mini - Another gorgeous polish. It's described as a halo but it just looks glittery to me. It's a pretty red/purple/orange/blue colorshifting polish.

I also got a mini base coat. 

There are 3 levels of membership. 
Super Daze is $15 and you get one full size polish and one hand care item. 
Mega Daze is $22 and you get one full size polish, one hand care item & one mini polish (I have this one)
Ultra Daze is $32 and you get one full size polish, two hand care items, one mini polish & one glittery accessory.

They also donate part of your purchase to charity. You do have to commit to a 3 month sub but you can pay monthly.

Glossybox - June

This months theme is American Beauty. It is curated by Dallas Shaw (fashion illustrator). The collaboration boxes are usually much better than the regular monthly ones. She chose products from her most favorite American brands.

When I found out that Bondi nail polish was going to be on the box, I got another box. I've been wanting to try their polishes for awhile now & they created 6 different polishes for this box. I really don't know what happened but Bondi had to pull out at the last minute. I get the impression that it's Dallas's fault but I really don't know for sure. Spa Ritual polish replaced the Bondi polish. I wouldn't have bought another box for a Spa Ritual polish! Oh well.

c.Booth - Honey Almond Dry Oil Mist Deluxe Sample
Oscar de la Renta - Essential Luxuries Set (6 mini perfume sprays)
Philip B - Assorted Hair Products - Deluxe Size
SpaRitual Nail polish - Full Size
Tarte - Complexion Enhancing Lipstick - Full Size

Every box has the same oil and perfumes. The are different variations of the lipstick, nail polish and hair product. 
The oil smells really good. I'm going to use it after shaving. There are 6 different scents of perfume. One of mine spilled and the whole box reeks! 

A little disappointed to get 2 shampoos but at least it's usable!

The gold polish is solstice. The purple creme is solitude. Meh

I was lucky to get 2 different colors of lipstick.

The lipsticks are nude w/ a tinted core. The first color is fair to light (pink). The second color (coral) is medium to tan. I love the medium-tan one. It's a gorgeous coral that looks awesome on my very dry lips.

Despite the controversy and significant delays in shipping, I love this box. The lipstick alone makes the whole box for me and I got 2! 

For $21 a month, you can get a box similar to this one. There is a different theme every month.

Rainbow Honey - The Kraken

Summer of 199X Set 1

The Kraken

The Kraken is from Rainbow Honey's newest collection - The Summer of 199X. It's described as a marine jelly that glows green & blue. It's sparkly, shimmery and it's so gorgeous! My pics don't do this beauty justice.

They also have a second set available - 3 cremes & 2 glitters. The mini sets are $20. You can also buy full size sets for $45 or individual full sizes for $10. It looks like you can't buy the mini's individually anymore :( 

Have you tried Rainbow Honey yet?
