July Glossy Box.......

So this is the 3rd month of Glossy Box and the 2nd i have received. For me this box was always going to be a little make or break. I liked last moths box, i just felt that in comparison to the May box it was a tiny bit of a let down, don't get me wrong, i liked a few of the bits in the box, just not as much as i would of liked the NARS illuminator and All about Eve lippy.

So this morning when my trusty postie knocked with my box, i was a tad excited.
And i am very pleased to say, this months Glossy Box has left me with a big grin on my face!!!
Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy for Glossy box July!!! hehehe.

So pretty!!!

So this is what came inside this months box.....

 Lots of exciting-ness!!!

Firstly there is a full size CIATE nail varnish. I have wanted to try this brand for a long time as so for me this is great :) It comes in a beautiful pale peachy pink shade, so pretty.

Next up....

WELEDA Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil, a pure plant oil that promises to leave the skin, supple, smooth and hydrated, along with anti aging benifits. Smells devine...

XEN-TAN Deep Bronze Luxe. I have used Xen Tan before, it is one of my favourite self tanners, so this for me is great, ideal holiday size!!! Its also in Deep which is great, some people with fairer skin may be a little frightened by this, dont be, just make sure your skin is well mositurized first and use a light hand with a mitt, you will get a gorgeous colour!!

Here we have a couple of fragrance samples by a company ive never heard of before, ETAT LIBRE. They are both Eau de Parfume. I havent smelt them yet, but when i opened the little sachet they came in, i got a waft of fresh citrus, so hopefully these will be right up my street.

Lastly, the thing i was most excited about when i saw it peeking out of my box.....

ILLAMASQUA Pure Pigment.... I have never tried any Illamasqua products before, i have wanted to but there is no where local that stocks the brand, i havent wanted to order online as i was unsure of colours etc so this for me is AMAZING!!!!!

The texture of this fine milled pigment is beautiful, the colour in Conquer, is a stunning rich mossy green, with just the right amount of sparkle. It has great pay off and can be used like most pigments with a sealer as a liner. Again, AMAZING!!!! 

CONGARTULATIONS Glossy Box, this month is definatly a winner :))))
Keep up the fab work!!
