Glossybox August 2012 International Superstars

Tuesday, August 21, 2012


Last week my Glossybox* arrived - wow I'm either doing these late or the months are passing me by way too fast. This month is the International Superstars box. Containing a product from varies countries:

imPRESS Press-On Manicure (£7.99+) Last time I tried press on nails was a few years back when I won some kiss nails goodie bag. Wouldn't say I'm hot on press ons but I think I will give them a go as I'm sure their less damaging then glue etc. - America

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (£18.50) Adore oil for the face as you may or may not know I tried the Oil Cleansing Method, which I really love. Simple, removes dirt and is easy enough. I did find that it's finding an oil balance. At some point I'm sure this will be used. - Japan

Lipcote (£3.99) I already have lipcote within my beauty collection. I do like this product having reviewed it here but probably won't be using it soon but it's handy to have about when you really do want that lipstick to stay put. - United Kingdom

Glossybox Lipstick (£9.50) I didn't agree with Glossybox when they put their make-up brush in a box a few months ago. Safe to say their launching their own range?! Yet it's a little cheeky including them in the boxes but smart from a business stand point. It's a nice colour, when I swatched it. Wouldn't say it's one I would buy. - GlossyBox

Alessandro Pro White (£7.85) Another product I'm wanting to try out. An anti-yellowing formula, designed to keep the nails white and gleaming. I hope this is the case, will look forward to trying it out. - Germany

Vera Valenti Eyeshadow Palette (£3.85) I HATED this as soon as I glanced upon it, picking it up the packaging felt like something I would of got from a market stall. The pigmentation wasn't bad but I was just really put off & disliked it. - Spain

2.5/6 products I'm happy with and would use. Got to say that palette for me was a real let down.

What did you get different in your box?

  1. The palette is AWFUL quality, many have said it can be purchased along many strips in spain for 1Euro or less. How Glossybox are claiming it is worth £5 I do not know!
    Unfortunately the Alessandro product didn't work for me and hade a really strong scent too, which let me down!
    It's an ok box, better than last month, but since GB's statement sectioning apart 'elite' customers I don't know how I'm feeling on things! x

    1. I really hated the palette. The plastic casing was just urgh, when I swatched it on my fingers the pigmentation wasn't bad but it wouldn't be something I'd put on my face at all.

      What! 1 euro or less, what a joke, definitely isn't worth the amount at all. It was very market stall so that proved my point there.

      Ah noo. I haven't opened mine yet as I've been using the Orly Nailrition.

      Oh really now hmm intersting o.O thanks for the comment babe xo

    2. My palette arrived broken, not a great first impression, hate the colours of mine, I got a green/neutral one.
      Feeling pretty ripped off on this box right now tbh xo

  2. Im not a GB subscriber and never been, but from a distant point of view - the boxes seem to be gettin poorer and poorer, not a very good move for a business like that me thinks. xx
