GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. They have the best packaging in the business, their products are usually deluxe size or full size, and the value is usually good too.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI: GlossyBox sends out multiple variations of the box during some months. So, there may be some variation between what I review and what you receive.

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included:
Now, on to the items!
Rituals Shower Foam in Happy Buddha – FULL SIZE! Value $15
I've sampled Rituals Foaming Shower Gel before thanks to subscription boxes, and I like the formula a lot. (It's a gel that turns into a lathery foam once it makes contact with water.) The cedar + orange scent is perfect for fall, too. I think this is my favorite Rituals scent!
Jafra Girl Squad Perfume - 7 ml Value $4.50
This scent is a blend of White Nectarine, Vanilla, and Red Musk. I appreciate the mini spritzer size, but this scent isn't a good fit for me.
Clove + Hallow Lip Glaze in Spicy - Size? Value $7?
(There's no sizing listed on this lip glaze, so I'm guessing it is about half the size of the full size version.)
This is an ingredient conscious liquid lippie. It's a bit of a hybrid of a gloss/lipstick. It has excellent pigment and shine, but it's not going to stay put for hours like a matte liquid lipstick.
(Subscribers will either receive the shade Spicy or Angelic)
Here it is swatched:
It's a bold color, but I could use only a small amount to get a subtle gloss and wearable shade.
Vasanti Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brush - Value $21
I'm always happy to get a quality makeup brush in a box, and Vasanti delivers! This brush has densely packed synthetic bristles, perfect for minimizing fallout when applying eyeshadow.
LUE by Jean Seo – Erase Powder - FULL SIZE! Value $15
This is a new-to-me brand and I'm impressed!
It's similar to a powder cleanser. You add half a tablespoon of water to a tablespoon of the powder, make a paste, and let it sit for a minute on your skin. Then massage it off and remove with water. It helped clean my skin, was gentle, and I loved the oatmeal scent, too.
Lastly, this box included a coupon for $50 off a watch order from Mockberg:
(Watch prices start at $149.)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $62.50. That's pretty good for a $21 beauty box. And I really liked all the items this month, so I'm happy!
