August Glossybox 2013

How is it Glossybox time of the month again? I'm sure I only got the last one a couple of weeks ago, how time flies when you're having fun! After last months Summer themed box my faith had been restored in Glossybox and I was excited to see what they'd do this month...only to be a little bit disappointed, boohoo! The theme of the box was highfliers and the contents are from all over the world to keep you looking groomed and glamorous on your Summer travels. I did open the box this month and think 'is this it?!' but with travel in mind the dinkier the better!

Emite Make Up Eyelash Curlers
I do use an eyelash curler every single day but I can't say that it's the most exciting part of applying my make plus I'd only recently received eyelash curlers in a Birchbox. £20 these little black and red babies would set you back, £20! That is in the realm of the holy grail Shu Uemura eyelash curlers price range so I am expecting big things from these.

TRESemme Platinum Strength 60 Second Treatment Shot
I must have been living under a rock (or at least not stepped foot into a Boots) for a while because I have never seen this before in my life and if I had I would have definitely have purchased! Firstly I can't resist anything that claims to repair damaged hair and secondly it is so cute and tiny!! Like Joel always says - I am a marketers dream!

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir
I feel exactly the same as any of you fellow Glossy subscribers when I see a perfume sample in my box, grrr!!! This actually smells quite nice very berryish and I've chucked it in my bag probably to be never seen again but if I do come across it I'll have a spritz!

Oceane Essential Make Up Remover Pen
This is hands down the best thing in the box for me, for a girl that swears by a flick of eyeliner everyday if I'm not on the ball in the mornings it can be a disaster and rubbing away one little flick can cause a hell of a lot of make up damage! I think this is going to save me a lot of time and frustration on those mornings when I'm still half asleep and I'm dangerous with an eyeliner pen.

Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Eyeliner and Shadow
You've got more chance of me going all 50 Shades of Grey adventurous than getting more adventurous than a flick of black eyeliner, a bit of neutral eyeshadow and fluttery black lashes so this metallic khaki green pencil eyeliner is not for me!

So this months box didn't have me jumping for joy but to be fair I'm going to use 4/5 products that I received so I need to quit complaining!
