The box is somewhat customized so there isn’t a traditional information card, but there was an advertisement and a coupon code for orders from the Glamorous Chicks shop.
Colorstick Lips in “Delightful” (0.09 oz) – Value $13
I think this product might be discontinued as it doesn’t seem to be available on the Glamorous Chicks website any longer. That’s too bad, because this has a great formula and a nice summery, coral color.
Lipstick in “Fireside” (full size) – Value $14.99
This is a color I chose (they send out a selection email to partially customize your box, early in the month). It ended up with a bit more orange than I was expecting, but that is actually a good thing. Because I have like 30 red lipsticks, but pretty much none with this amount of orange in them, so this is actually unique! And for me, anyway, quite wearable. It has a moisturizing formula and the pigment lasts a long time.
Cosmetics Glitter in “Copper” (5 g) – Value $14.95
This was another color I chose. I tend to use glitter in manicures more often than as eye makeup (though it works for both). I have quite a few shades of nail polish that will go well with this.
Shimmer Powder in Green Tea (2.35 g) – Value $14.95
This had a little less yellow than expected, but I do know monitor settings can make colors appear different online, and I actually think I like how it looks in real life a bit better than online. I’m collecting loose eyeshadow singles at the moment and I don’t have anything in quite this color (I chose this one). The formula is pretty good, similar to Orglamix if you’ve tried any of those.
Mr. Kitty wanted to help. Anyway, from top to bottom, the copper glitter (no primer), the “Green Tea” shimmer powder, the “Fireside” lipstick, and the “Delightful” lipstick.
Here are the lipsticks on. Both of these are at the end of long work days and after exposure to Georgia summer heat and humidity. I did reapply each a few times. “Fireside” is on top and “Delightful” on bottom.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $58 for this month’s Glamorous Chicks Beauty Box. That’s more than twice the cost of the box. I am really becoming a fan of the Glamorous Chicks lip products, every one I’ve tried has been moisturizing and nicely pigmented. If you are into edgier colors, they have a LOT to choose from. They tend to have purchase limits in their shop on lip color items, so the subscription may be a good way to bypass that if you are interested in starting a collection, since you can usually choose a couple of the items in your box.
Their subscription sign-up site probably needs to be redesigned, it is quite slow and maybe a little out-of-date. I’m not too concerned about that since I did eventually get it to work and you pay with PayPal. I’ve been having fun playing around with bold colors. Based on the models in their shop, this subscription could also be very good for women of color – they have models with lots of different skin tones.
