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.

Money Green Semi Matte Liquid Lipstick (7.6 g) – Value $16.99

I have had this lifelong obsession with unusual lip colors. So I loved this. My mom wouldn’t let me wear stuff like this when I was in high school, and 20 years later, my husband didn’t seem too keen to be seen with me in public while wearing it, but I do think it’s really pretty.

Colorstick Lips in Rose – Value $13

I think this might’ve been discontinued because I can only find it on eBay and Amazon. That’s too bad, because it had a great formula and was a very wearable color for me.

Mineral Eyeshadow in “Banana” (full size) – Value $14.99

Mineral Eyeshadow in “Solar” (2.35 g) – Value $14.95

I’m collecting a lot of loose pigments lately. I needed some lighter/less crazy colors to balance out my look, so these are welcome. They have a pretty good formula, similar to what you get from Orglamix. On the product pages for these, there are numerous suggestions for ways to use them other than as eyeshadow.

Diamond Glitter in “Emerald Green” (5 g) – Value $14.95

I like to use loose glitter in manicures (just do one nail at a time, and reserve a bottle of topcoat only for glitter use, and you’ll be fine). This should be fun for that. Or you could get some Too Faced Glitter Glue and wear it as eyeshadow.

Here are swatches of the products, from top to bottom: Diamond Glitter in “emerald green” (no primer), Mineral Eyeshadow in “solar,” Mineral Eyeshadow in “banana,” Colorstick lips in “rose,” and Semi Matte Liquid Lips in “money green.”

And yeah, that’s me wearing the green lipstick all tiny in the corner. I wanted to do a larger shot but I had been experimenting with some new face powders and I looked, at best, like a Goth, and at worst, like the Joker from Batman. The color is pretty vibrant and it was fun to wear, although it doesn’t look as shiny as the images on the Glamorous Chicks website.

And here is me with the Colorstick lipstick. This is at the end of a very long work day and after several reapplications. I liked the formula – it’s pretty moisturizing and fairly long-lasting.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $75 for this month’s Glamorous Chicks Beauty Box. That’s great for a $25 subscription. The colors were wild but I knew that going in. Based by the models on their website, they are really interested in providing products for people with a wide range of skin tones, and many of their models are women of color.

Some notes: Earlier in the month, Glamorous Chicks sent an email asking me to choose three full size products from among certain categories. The only one I am 100% certain I got was the green glitter, but I had told them substitutions were OK since I was new to the brand, and I did receive two products that were quite similar to items I had chosen (“solar” eyeshadow and the green liquid lipstick), if not the same, so it may have been an out-of-stock issue. We will see how it goes in future months.

I do think they could stand to do a bit of website maintenance. The FAQ is kind of old and may reflect an earlier version of the subscription box (it’s dated 2013). And, the labeling of products was a bit inconsistent but everything was sealed and in good condition (not old or bad) and I haven’t had any trouble with it.

In the end, though, I got a lot of fun stuff out of this and you pay using PayPal, so there’s little risk involved.

What do you think of the June 2016 Glamorous Chicks Beauty Box?

That green lipstick is fabulous! Your husband sounds like mine…boring.lol I love fun stuff like this! Age is only a number;) I am 34 and plan to sparkle and shine for the rest of my days!

Wow! I have never seen a lipstick color like that! Cool that you went out in public with it. I think it would be amazing for a Poison Ivy costume!

Celisa

Also, the site seems sloooowwwww!

Ragan

It is slow. Not sure why. FYI, if you decide to subscribe and order now your first box might not be until August. I think their cutoff is around the 20th for July.

Lisa

This looks so fun!! I’ll have to keep an eye on this one!

Celisa

Oooooh how very cool! I’ve never heard of this one, but I’m experimental and love pigmented makeup. Just dropped a couple of subs…maybe I should pick this one up!

Trish

I like everything you got! I’m going to seriously consider this, although I’m getting close to max subs for my budget. Been saving for one of the more $$$ options, but I’m getting weak and might just take the leap!
