July’s GlossyBox has arrived…..

And I’m initially disappointed!

The concept I love (read more about GlossyBox)

The excitement and anticipation I love

The packaging I love

 

 

But the products…

 

 

Not so much?!?!

Ciate Nail Enamel (13.5ml RRP £9)

Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether (15g RRP £22)

Orla Kiely Eau de Parfum (5ml sample)

Ultra Sun Face SPF (15ml sample)

Weleda Pmegranate Body Oil (100ml RRP £19.50)

I’m not going to let my initial disappointment cloud my judgement. A full review of the products and service will follow, let’s just say my expectations haven’t been fulfilled.

I would have been really happy with the Ciate nail enamel – but Shrek green aint my style

I realise at face value this looks like a lot of products for £10 – but it’s only worth it if they’re products you’ll actually use.

Whatsmore – such is the power of the beauty blog, a quick search and you can find out what other people received in their box = GlossyBox envy. Variations on the products this month includes Xen-Tan self tanning product, False Eyelashes and Illamasqua Lipgloss – all of which I would have been very happy with, oh and Ciate Nail colours that are much more wearable than SHREK GREEN!

Perhaps we can start a GlossyBox swap service?

Beauty Waitlist… The Kardashians for OPI

Next in their quest for World domination the Kardashian sisters are set to follow in the footsteps of, er Shrek and Justin Beiber and launch their own range for nail giant OPI.

Kim confirmed the news on twitter last week after reportedly shooting the promo material with Khloe and Kourtney. She said “For the nail polish colors…just think glitz and glam. You guys are gonna faint when u see our new polish.”

OPI, famed for their quirky names like “My private jet” (believed to be Kim’s favourite) ,“Dating a Royal”  and “What’s with the catitude”, the mind is on overdrive trying to imagine what those cheeky Kardashian’s will come up with. Perhaps something like “Kim’s sex tape” or “Khloe loves sauseege”??? Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until Christmas time to find out.

Khloe Kardashian

Proof positive that the Kardashian sisters really do have it nailed!
