GlossyBox - Pride Edition

Saturday, August 25, 2018
I always love receiving subscription boxes to review but one of my all time favourites, that I was subscribed to years ago, is GlossyBox as they always have decent sized or full sized items rather than sachet samples. I also love how well put together their boxes are and the themes are always interesting - this months theme is pride!

*GlossyBox August - Pride 
The pride box is so beautifully and simply designed, I love it! Within this month box there are six full sized items which is amazing as the total comes to £58 so you are getting a lot for your money this month. There are five full sized makeup items in the box too which is great as makeup and lifestyle items are some of my favourites to receive in subscription boxes.
*Trifle Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Jam (£17.50)
Let's start with the product that has the cutest packaging, closing followed by the Victoria Secret Pink mask. I have tried a palette from this brand in a previous box and really liked it so I'm glad that there's another item from Trifle Cosmetics (did this brand used to be called Jelly Pong Pong?). I love lip and cheek tints but you always have to be quite precise and quick with the application for a neat result. I like this one as a lip colour and it's 99% natural which is fantastic!

*Rimmel London Ink Me Heart Stamp (£4.99)
There are two Rimmel products in the box and Rimmel is such a nostalgic brand for me as it was the first makeup brand I ever tried! These two Rimmel products do remind me of the 90's and early 00's, they would have been in every teen magazine. This cute stamp is in the shape of a heart so it adds a little eyeliner style stamp to the skin which would be perfect for festivals or pride (Manchester pride is taking place this weekend and sadly I'm away but I would have loved to go this year!).
*Victoria Secret Pink Let's Pre-Glam Perfecting Sheet Mask (£5)
There are a couple of products from this box that I haven't got round to trying yet and this is one of them but it sounds fantastic. It contains one of my favourite skincare ingredients, hyaluronic acid which is ideal for my dry skin. I adore the packaging of this mask but sadly I'm not a huge fan of sheet masks, mainly because they never seem to fit very well!

*Rimmel London Sticker Tattoos (£4.99)
The second product I haven't had the time to try are these cute golden temporary tattoos and body sticks from Rimmel. I used to love temporary tattoos, body glitters and body gems back in the 90's but I don't really think they are for me now. However, these golden designs are so pretty and they'd be perfect for a festival or pride.
*3INA Shadow Paint in 703 (£8.95)
I have seen this brand on Urban Outfitters and Asos for years but I haven't tried anything - it's always intrigued me through as the packaging is very unique and almost utilitarian. This product is a highly pigmented, creamy eyeshadow which is cruelty free (yay!) and waterproof. Everyone receives the same shade which is 703, a very deep navy blue that would be ideal for the upcoming autumnal weather and trends. Colour blocking eyeshadow was seen at Peter Pilotto and pastel blues shades at Boss Woman. I have to admit that I'm not the biggest fan of cream eyeshadows and this one is no different as it's quite messy, the dark shades leaves no room for untidy edges and on my deeper set eyes, it does tend to crease.
*Kaledido Cosmetics Astrolight Highlighter (£13)
The final item from the very colourful August pride box was a very pretty highlighter from a brand I haven't heard of before - one of the best things about beauty subscription boxes for me is discovering new brands and products, as well as getting to play with new makeup and skincare. The highlighter is 100% cruelty free which is always great to hear!

It does have a scent to it which I'm not a massive fan of due to my sensitive skin but the highlighter itself is very pretty on the skin. I use a very tiny amount and blend well as the shade isn't quite right for my ghostly pale skin but it does give a pretty glow.

Overall, while there were a couple of disappointing products in this months box, for me personally, it is still a wonderful selection of products that I haven't tried before. I love the highlighter and the lip tint along with the adorable Rimmel heart stamp. I'd rate this months box: ★★★★, 4/5.

Did you received the August Pride box from GlossyBox? Have you tried any of these products?
