July Glossybox

It's that time of the month where I get my monthly Glossybox and it came late because I was lazy and didn't update my billing info in time. It just so happened that they also double charged me for it as well which was sad but Customer service responded to my email in under 2 hours and gladly refunded me the money which made me a very happy camper.  This just gives me another reason to love them and I must say I already love them a lot.

Then this lovely surprise happened. I got two boxes. whoo hoo! I guess they had made a mistake and I got the box I never wanted. Good deal for me, that's the way I see it. I just hoped I didn't get the exact same box but if I did, worst case scenario was to give away what I didn't need. 

 Here is box number 1

 This is box number 2. Good deal, I didn't get everything the same and I actually got the extra freebie with a coupon code in both boxes. 

 I really love the pamphlet it comes with, it's always a nice sturdy card stock type paper. 

What the heck is a Brazillian blowout? I just want a blowout that includes a glass of bubbly while they curl my hair and make me look gorgeous. 

I was happy I got this lip balm, a little bit on the sticky side and didn't have that problem some cherry scented balms have of smelling like cough syrup. 

A few months back we got a bath tea bag with the same exact scent and I really loved it. I don't know why people complain about this smell but then again I'm a die hard fan of anything white tea related. I used to only drink a certain white tea with pear and omg it was heavenly. I really can't wait to try this but knowing myself I'll probably wait and wait for months before doing it because its a small sample and I like hoarding things I love. 

A tiny sample of pimple cream? I'll take it! I don't break out like I used to when i was in my teens and it seems its more hormonal or I forgot to wash my face after a wild night out. 

I have so many nail polishes from subscription boxes it's not even funny. I am grateful its a small bottle though and it's a pretty cute bright blue. Might be more my style as an accent nail color though. 

Oh, now I have no excuse for not wiping my face clean after a wild night. but then I wont get to use my new pimple cream...decisions! I'm kidding guys, I wont risk the state of my face. I really do love the makeup wipes though. I wish I got into them in high school instead of slathering on makeup to hide the awful pimples and just prevent them in the first place. 

This was a freebie with coupon code and is a textured OPI nail polish that I believe was featured in the January limited edition Man Repeller box. Excited to try it since it's in my favorite color purple!

Then I got this BB cream to try out. I always put off trying these samples because what if I try it and I really like it and I find I can't live without it but the sample won't hold me over until the next chance I can buy it for myself? Is that something a makeup addict would say? 

I used to have really shiny looking skin growing up and since then my skin has matured and gotten better over time but I still have those same fears of being "too shiny. The dewey look I can do and pull off fine but complete shine is a nightmare. I still do appreciate matte formulas and really do hope this shows up matte on me. I have found that trying out some "oil free" products I do still end up looking like a Christmas tree somehow. Cross your fingers guys!

So that's what I got in my Glossybox and sorry this is late as my goal was to post this yesterday. I swear I'll get the hang of deadlines. Plus I was super tired because I couldn't fall asleep at all Sunday night until 1am and all day Monday I was a zombie at my desk at work. My boss asked me to set up the new coffee pot and I swear I heard to set up the conference room. Hopefully you guys had a better day than that. but for now, hope you enjoyed this post. 

I did promise I would have the new Sonia Kashuk limited edition Jewel of an Eye shadows swatched and up here last Friday but didn't get around to it until this morning after hopping out of the shower. So now I am working on that today and hopefully it will be up and running at a decent hour. So until then, have a great day! (omg that's awkward but I feel I need an exit theme of some sort instead of just ending things like a bad relationship over text)
