Well hello there!
Welcome to another Glossy Box Opening and this month is celebrating Pride which is amazing, and actually includes 6 FULL sized products instead of 5 so you are really getting an extra treat. These products are to make us feel empowered, bold and unique so lets dive in!

Rimmel London Sticker Tattoos
So these are the sticker tattoos that the contestants on Love Island wore on one of their party nights. They are metallic, supposed to be water proof and can last up to 4 days! These are perfect for festival season. You can pick these up in Superdrug and they retail for £4.99.

Rimmel London Ink Me Stamp Tattoo
To celebrate that love is love Glossy Box have included a super cute heart stamp tattoo. Again it is perfect for festival season as well to jazz up any makeup look. I have never personally tried anything like this but I am looking forward to giving it a go. You can pick this up in Boots and in Superdrug and this retails for £4.99 also.

Ok I am so excited about this because I didn't even know Victoria's Secret did skin care! This is the Selfie Skin Nourishing Sheet Mask, that is formulated with coconut oil to give you soft skin and insta-complexion perfection.  I love sheet masks and this sounds like a really good one so I cannot wait to give this a go. You can buy this from the Victoria's Secret Pink website and they retail for £5 each.

I believe we have received a product from this brand before, I think it was an eye shadow palette so it's nice to see familiar brands in the box. This is a lip and cheek tint that will give you a natural and healthy flush of colour. I was pretty scared of the colour of this as it looks quit dark but when you swatch it, it blends out to a very pretty light pink shade. The packaging is quite luxurious as it is in a glass bottle. You don't get a lot of product in this but as someone who does not wear products like this a lot it will last a long time. You can buy this from the Trifle Cosmetics website and it retails for £17.50 which is pretty pricey.

This is what I am most excited about because it is a liquid highlighter and it a beautiful last 8 hbronzy/ copper shade. This is a creamy gel based highlighter that is supposed to 8 hours, is lightweight and is a blinding highlight. This shade is too dark for me but the beauty with this is that you can use it not only on your cheekbones but on your  brow bones, inner corner of your eyes and your cupids bow. This would be an amazing eye shadow shade as well! You get a lot of product in this as you get 4ml which will last you a long time. It is 100% cruelty free and vegan friendly, you can buy this from the Kaleido Cosmetics website and it retails for £13.

This is a blue eyeshadow paint that is highly pigmented, long-lasting and waterproof. I don't really use blue eyeshadow but apparently the trend is making a come back! You can use this however you want either on the lid, on the lash line or even as a base. You can buy this on the 3ina website or some of their products are actually on the Look Fantastic website, and this retails for £8.95.

So that was the August Glossy Box Opening.

  1. Alpaca could be the marvelous and excellent fabric produced from the yarn of Peruvian alpacas. It is typically useful for sewing alpaca fingers and layers protection for alpaca gloves and wintertime circumstances. Men’s alpaca textiles are respected about their h2o-contra-hypoallergenic, - and tolerant-set up capabilities in addition to a kinder-than-wool palm feels.
