GlossyBox August 2013 Review

Each box comes with a card detailing the products in that box – the August theme is “Bohemian Summer.”

GlossyBox August 2013 Review

Pandora’s Polish – Value $9.50

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush – Value $18

I can always use more white nail polish – it’s a great base for pale colored polishes! I’m also happy to finally get to try this Jelly Pong Pong lip tint crayon – I feel like I’ve been waiting for weeks since GlossyBox revealed it would be in the August box!

GlossyBox August 2013 Review

Novex Brazillian Keratin Hair Care Treatment Cream – Value $4.99

Anatomicals Spray Misty for Me Facial Spray – Value $9

I’ve always wanted to try Keratin treatments – so I guess it’s time! If you’ve tried similar products, let me know if you recommend Keratin!

GlossyBox August 2013 Review

Sue Devitt Triple C-Weed Pressed Powder in Quiet and Still – Value $28

This was probably my favorite item in the box – I’ve used this powder before and really liked it, but the shade I had bought was just a little too dark for me. The shade GlossyBox picked for me was actually the perfect match! I recommend applying this with a brush instead of the compact applicator that comes with it to avoid adding more powder than needed!

Guess Denim Makeup Bag – Bonus item!

This box also included a cute makeup bag from Guess, and a coupon for 30% off a Guess purchase.

Verdict: This box had a value of nearly $70 – amazing! And I really love that every item was full-sized with lots of makeup products. The August 2013 GlossyBox was definitely a win for me – what did you think of the box?

  1. I just ordered glossy box and it arrived so fast but I received two boxes. Is this normal, or is it possible they charged me twice? I used my bf’s card, he knew, but I don’t want him to receive double charges. Can anyone tell me how to cancel a subscription if I double ordered? I looked on my email and cannot find a contact number just shipping confirmations.? Thanks, and love the boxes btw. 🙂

  2. Great box only I was disappointed that I received my 30% off guess coupon the day after it expired 🙁 This was my first box with them so overall it was a nice box, full size items too.

  3. I got the Airelle face repair instead of the nail polish.
    I really liked this box.

  4. Hey girl! If you want to trade your Jelly Pong Pong in red, I have a pink unopened one! Also, if you want the ModelCo eyeshadow (that some people got instead of nail polish) I’d def. trade for the polish. Let me know! xo M

  5. Did anyone else out there not receive the pressed powder? I contacted Glossy about the missing product, but no word yet. Any sage words of advice?

  6. My favorite thing in this box was the jelly pong pong…I don’t mind wearing pink…and it feels really great on my lips! I also got the eye shadow and it is so pretty! The powder is perfect for my fair complexion! really great value on this box!

  7. I was disappointed in the shade I got of the Sue Devitt powder. It’s so dark that I can’t even use it as a blush. Though I really love the lip stain. It’s the perfect color and doesn’t have a harsh taste like some lip products tend to.

  8. Ughhhh when will mine comeeeee, it’s said ‘packed’ for days I just wish it would ship already

  9. LOVED this box. I also got eyeshadow instead of the nail polish and, like commenter Amylee, I was SO HAPPY to see the eyeshadows were in beautiful earthy shades and not neon blue or something.

    Wow, I was so blown away by the size and quality of all these items. (Although I have a CLOSET full of face misters at this point, but I thought this one was really nice.)

    The only thing I was a tad bummed about was the bright bubblegum pink shade of my Jelly Pong lip blush – how can anyone older than 15 wear that shade? 😀 I wish I would have gotten the red shade you got. Regardless, this box was AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME.

    I am so glad I took your advice and signed up for this box. I’ve gotten three so far and I’ve loved every one of them!

  10. Just got my box today and I have to agree that it is my favorite box ever! I received the face spray, pressed powder (same color which is perfect), keratin treatment, jelly pong pong in a different color (although it’s weird that there is no name or number to differentiate the colors-mine is pink) and lastly, a ModelCo eyeshadow duo in Bronzed Goddess. I will use absolutelt everything in this box! I was especially happy to see the eyeshadow. I am not particularly adventurous with eye makeup and so often I receive bright eyeliners and shadows in beauty subscriptions. This one is perfectly in my comfort zone, which means it will actually get used and have real value to me. And my box was an $85 value! Total win!

  11. Can you still orders the August box? If so do you know up until when it can be ordered?? Thanks!

  12. Overall a really nice box. The Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush color I received is too pink for me, it just doesn’t work. I can give it to my nieces though, it’s perfect for a teen. I don’t really get the face sprays – I’ve received a few of these in other boxes. They’re OK, I just would never buy one. I feel like I could buy a little spray bottle and put water in it and it would work the same. The face powder is great though, definitely worth the price of the box.

  13. Oh my gosh!! I am very excited to receive my first box ever soon!!!! And it’s all because of your reviews! Plus it only cost me $16 yay!! 🙂 So Excited!!

  14. Haven’t got mine yet but oh my I’m so excited now!!! Great box!!

  15. I am in love with the Guess makeup bag!!
