GlossyBox July 2019 Review
Each box comes with a fold-out card detailing the items included.
Leighton Denny Miracle Mist, 75 ml – Full Size! Retail Value $15.03 USD/£12 (currently sold out)
I don’t see myself using this much since I get my nails done pretty often. I am actually really bad at painting them myself. I think I might pass this on to a friend who is way into nail art. I can only imagine how speeding up the drying process for some of her more intricate designs might be helpful!
Oryza Beauty Lipstick in ‘Japonica’, 3.8 g – Full Size! Retail Value $22.50
So I knew this color wasn’t ideal for me as soon as I opened it. I still put it on and displayed my look to Marne, resident lipstick goddess. Her response was simply “No.” Ouch. This is a rather orange nude shade with a warmth that I cannot make work. The formula itself is creamy, and feels nice, but I think this color should probably be reserved for someone else.
Far too warm!
Luscious Camera Powder, 5.5 g – Full Size! Retail Value $29.00
This power gives a nice blur finish, but I will admit that I can see some of the white pigment if I apply it with a heavy hand. This works really well for my fair skin, but I wonder if someone with a warmer or darker tone would find it as beneficial. I think the camera-inspired packaging is really cute!
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist, 15 ml – Estimated Value $6.30 (Buy a full size 200 ml for $59.00)
I thought this bottle would be a little bigger, but I am still very excited about it. I adore this brand and I already have the full size of this mist which I use religiously before applying more expensive serums at night. This little glass bottle is perfect for my weekender bag or purse. This mist is very hydrating and smells of pure roses.
Afterspa Makeup Remover – Mini Size! Retail value $4.00 (On sale for $2.30)
Finally, our last item is a reusable makeup remover cloth. I have a few of these and they work really well with just water! This little mini one is great for stashing to use later on a trip or in the guest bathroom.
Verdict: GlossyBox has a value of $76.83, which is good for this $21 box. Though the lipstick was pretty bad on me and I won’t use the nail drying spray (both together do subtract a big chunk of that value) I did enjoy the other items. I still wish the rose mist was larger because I love it so much! I am still happy it was a sample this month. The setting powder has a great finish on me, and I really enjoy having another makeup remover cloth.
