This month GlossyBox is celebrating their birthday so this month’s box features a super sparkly pink glitter design and fun holographic crinkle paper inside! I am loving this special box design!
Each GlossyBox includes a fold out paper that lists all of the items in the box.
This variation (#1) of the August 2019 GlossyBox includes products by Emma Hardie, UB Cosmetics, Luxie, and more!
Keep reading for details on each product!
Maria Nila True Soft Masque – Full Size, $30 value (*in all boxes)
Right off the bat, we’re starting with a full size product and it’s something everyone can use- a good hair mask! This vegan, cruelty-free, paraben & sulfate-free hair mask is ultra-rich and contains nourishing argan oil to soften hair and add shine as well as a color guard complex to protect color. Directions say to leave it in hair for just 3 minutes or leave on longer (5-10 minutes) for deeper hydration. I left it on for 3 minutes and was surprised how well it worked in so little time- my hair was noticeably softer and smoother after use and I really like the fresh scent of this hair treatment too!
Emma Hardie Moringa Light Cleansing Gel – 15ml size, $6.75 value (*in all boxes)
Usually I’m a fan of Emma Hardie skincare products but this cleansing gel was just not my fave. While it smells wonderful (floral) and does a good job removing makeup, it left my skin feeling oily so unfortunately it’s a pass for me.
UB Cosmetics True Glow Skin Illuminating Stick in 01 Universal Light – Full Size, $20 value (*in all boxes)
This creamy highlighter stick glides onto skin easily leaving behind a shimmering champagne glow! Use it to highlight the bridge of the nose, cheekbones, and cupid’s bow above your lips. I found it best to blend this product with a finger rather than a sponge.
Lauren B. Beauty Bright Lights Nail Polish – Full Size, $20 value (*in all boxes)
This Lauren B. nail polish is oh so pretty! The festive gold glitter formula screams celebration and is perfect on its own or as a nail topper over your fave nail color. To get an opaque glitter finish, put the nail polish on a makeup sponge and dab it onto your nail- this makes the glitter adhere to your nail without all of the clear base (which gets absorbed into the sponge)- keep dabbing on more glitter until you fill in the entire nail with glitter, then move onto the next nail. Be sure to finish with a clear top coat to seal the glitter to get the most wear.
Luxie Dreamcatcher Tapered Highlighter Brush 522 – Full Size, $26 value
(*variation item- other variation products are: Jafra Royal Luxury Lip Liner OR Dr. Botanicals Apothecary Pomegranate Superfood Brightening Eye Serum)
Luxie makes some of the best makeup brushes so I was thrilled to see this pretty lavender purple highlighter brush in the box! The tapered synthetic bristles are super soft and I like the shiny rose gold hardware. This brush makes applying powder highlighter quick and easy!
This variation of the August 2019 GlossyBox has a nice mix of beauty products from top brands with a few full sizes too! I liked 4 of the 5 products and loved the pretty glitter packaging! This box is worth $102.75 which I feel is a great value for $21.
