Glossybox July - Stars and Stripes

This USA themed box is one of my favourite designs, out of curiosity I had a look at what they received in the US version of the Stars and Stripes Glossybox, interestingly the products are completely different, not necessarily better I don't think.

Here's what I received ....

The main feature was a Bellapierre - Mineral Lipstick There has been a few Bellapierre products in previous boxes, including shimmer powders and Mascara. All their products are mineral based and previous items have been great. There was 3 colour options we could have received, I got the orange one - Mandarina which was my first choice, a fab orange shade. This is £20 and can be purchased here.

Pur Minerals - Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque This promises to unclog pores, cleanse skin and gently exfoliate. Sounds good, I swatched on my hand, it's got a great thick and smooth texture and smells of tea-tree oil, love it. Will have to give this a good try, this is available at Marks and Spencer of all places for £18 they look to have lots of other lovely looking products so might be heading to M&S!  

Carmex - Lip balm Everyone loves Carmex, definitely one of the best lip balms around and an absolute bargain at £2.69 this will be going straight in my handbag! Available at drugstores and most supermarkets

Color Club - Glossy Seal Nail Varnish A new brand to me, based in New York and cruelty free which is great! This colour has been formulated especially for the Stars and Stripes Box, it's different to anything I currently own. The brush is a bit smaller than i'd like, but the coverage with just 1 coat is really good!

Lastly is ABSOLUTE New York - Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer. This is an oil- free formula, that can be used alone to neutralise eye lid colour or under shadow. First impressions it seems very wet, it took quite a will to dry but a little goes a long way. I will have to test it's staying power! This is $4.99 and available from

An absolutely fab box this month, can't wait to try everything properly. 3 out of 5 totally new brands to me which is nice and I absolutley love the lipstick!

Thanks Glossybox
