Glossybox | June 2014


Last day of the month. Two reviews to go. One box isn’t even here yet. I have failed.

In better news, only a 4 day work week this week! I love holidays. And to commemorate the occasion, here is a patriotic themed Glossybox:


The most adorable packaging that ever lived. I’m keeping the box. I don’t know what for, but I feel like I could be arrested for treason if I throw it away. I would not fare well in an orange jumpsuit. I have pink undertones.

First item is the Rusk Texture Dry Finishing Spray. It has been immediately regifted. I don’t have time in the morning to do anything to my hair that requires a texture spray.  I almost don’t have time to do anything, much less fiddle around with a hairdo that will most likely not last half an hour.   I mean, the best effort I’ve ever made towards any kind of hair style is purchasing a hair donut.  And that was done primarily because it’s fun to say hair donut.

Next item is of course a big fat poo.  It’s red and blue nail polish from StrangeBeautiful.  This has also been regifted.  The contents of this box is dwindling fast people!  Is there anything left in here for me?  (Sad face.)  Now, to clarify, I’m not saying anything is wrong with the red and blue nail polish.  I just don’t want it.  It is not my preference.  Despite the fact it’s completely in season and holiday appropriate. I swear though, it’s found a loving home with my daughter. She will draw the Stars and Stripes for America, don’t worry.

Okay now things are starting to get better. I got a body butter by Ayres. The scent is called Patagonia, which I assume means jasmine and rosemary cuz that’s what it says on the label. I’m not a fan of those fake scents, those scent names that are not a real thing, but it doesn’t stink that much. It doesn’t smell like paradise either so don’t get too excited. However, it sinks in very fast which is my number one prerequisite for a body butter. I would actually consider buying a full size of this. Maybe try a different scent, as Midnight Tango or Pampas Sunrise seems like they would smell better. But what do I know? Cuz those aren’t real things either.

Got an eyeshadow crayon from Sumita Beauty in the color Champagne. Here’s my face: -__-

I dunno. I guess it’s not that bad, but I don’t prefer cream eyeshadows. I just don’t really know what to do with them. However, I used it this weekend and it was pretty creamy, went on very smooth, and the color was nice. Then I put it away in my Train Case of Forgotten Makeup where it will live for all eternity. I’ll dig it out every now and then, but there will be no miracles.

Last item is my absolute fave of them all. It’s a glorious hand cream by Camille Beckman called Imperial Repair. I love it. For one, it squeezes itself out of the tube very elegantly. I cannot explain it any other way than that. In fact, it squeezes out so incredibly elegantly, I would do nothing but squeeze it out for the rest of my life as a side job or a hobby. There’s just a satisfying pleasure in it. Oh my gawd, what’s happened to me?

The smell is a lemongrass grapefruit which sounds heavenly and is also a real thing. However, the lemon overwhelms the grapefruit so it smells mostly about 100% like furniture polish. But it also moisturizes well and leaves the hands feeling soft and lovely. Approved! Put it on your shopping list.

Thanks for spending the last day of June with me. One more box arrives tomorrow, then I got empties, July boxes and some hauls to share. The fun never ends!
