Glossybox July: The Stars and Stripes Edition, UnboxingSaturday, August 23, 2014 Mary Anne Velasco
After thinking and rethinking for two months, I’ve decided to become a Glossybox subscriber. My first box --- definitely a good box to start the six-month journey!
Stars and Stripes is Glossybox’s 4th of July theme. The box is lovely and is packed with five beauty products I’ve never tried before… add to that the fact that this is my first beauty box ever makes the unboxing even a more exciting experience for me.
As expected, the box arrived as promised --- within the first week of August. Happy me!
Me to self : Welcome to Glossybox!

On the photo below is the happy Glossybox subscriber wearing Bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Lipstick in CherryPOP shade. I am not a huge fan of a very pigmented shade for my lips. Dabbing a very thin coat solves the problem! I’ve worn it for straight six hours and loved it. Did not dry my lips and my oh my… it smelled so good! It reminded me of the aroma I get from melting white chocolate with a slight touch of vanilla. Yum!
I can hardly wait for my second box. I have a feeling that it’s arriving anytime next week. Well, in all honesty, it’s because I received an SMS informing me that my August box is on its way to me. Since Glossybox’s celebrating its 3rd birthday, I am so excited to open the anniversary box. Woot woot!
