July Glossy Box 2014 - Stars and Stripes


Hellooooo my lovelies! It's been a while since I've last posted so today I am back with my last Glossy box review. Yes that's right, my last one! I will be cancelling my subscription as I feel it's a waste of money for myself as I keep receiving products I wont use. It is sad but it's the right thing to do :).
This months theme is Stars and Stripes to celebrate the 4th of July in America. There are 3 things in this box that I will definitely use so I'm happy with that. These are also all full sized products which is great! I had enough glossy dots to get this box free so I didn't pay a penny for it :D.

Carmex - Lip Balm
"Loved by celebrities and makeup artists all over the world, Carmex is the original lip balm and the only way to sooth dry, chapped lips. With menthol, camphor and beeswax, lips are nourished, conditioned, and protected from the elements all year round. You need this staple in your bag!"
I love carmex lip balms so I'm really happy with this although it's not expensive so feel it's not very special to receive this in the box when I can just go out and get it at Tesco.
Application - "Apply to lips with a clean finger."
One size - £2.69                                                    Shop at -

Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd - Mineral Lipstick
"This cult American favourite is formulated with natural waxes, mineral pigments, and antioxidants including Vitamin C and Vitamin E, providing long lasting colour and protecton against the sun."
I don't own any lipsticks as I don't wear them. I might give this a go but would've rather had a bright red one because I've been tempted to just go all out and wear one on a night out haha! This colour is really pretty though :).
Application - "Smooth on lips for a slick of colour."
One size - £20 (holy moly!)                                         Shop at -

Absolute New York - Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer
"This oil free, ultra-creamy formula evens skin tone around the eye area and keeps eyeshadow crease-free and colour-true for a lasting look."
I wont use this so not excited about it! 
Application - "Apply a thin layer over eyelids and gently blend with fingers to create an even base. Wear product alone to neutralise redness and brighten eyes pr layer under your favourite shadow for a prolonged vibrant colour."
One size - $4.99                                                                    Shop at -

NYC New York Color - High Definition Felt Tip Liner - Extra
"Discover NYC's black liquid liner in the flexi felt tip. Simple. Pick a liner look, and then do it like a NY fashion week pro: first time."
I do like to wear liquid eye liner when I go on a night out so I'm excited to try this! The past felt tip liners I've tried haven't impressed me so far so hopefully this will :).
Application: "Draw along the top lash line with a closed eye for an easy application."
One size: £2.99 per pack                                            Shop at:

Color Club - Glossy Seal
"Color Club nail polish is proudly made in New York with only non-toxic, cruelty free ingredients. The shade Glossy Seal has been especially formulated for your July Glossybox!"
That's so cool how it's been made especially for this months box! I will definitely use this as you all know how much I love nail polish! You can't have too much of it :P
Application - "Apply 2 thin coats to clean, dry nails and seal with a top coat."
One size - $8 for 15ml                                            Shop at -

So there we go, my July glossy box and my last glossy box! Who knows maybe I'll subscribe again but for now it's cancelled. I'd love to know what you thought of your box this month if you're subscribed.
Thanks for reading xoxo
