July Glamourbox Unboxing

Another unboxing post coming your way Pinay Beauties! This time I am going to share with you this month's special edition box from Glamourbox, the Avon Box.

When I received a notification from Glamourbox that they will be releasing a special edition box for Jul, I thought it would cost a lot like thr BDJ Elite Box, so I didn't subscribe but I found out from Yette of Yettezkie's Doodle that this box costs for only ₱595, I know I have to get my hands on this baby. I know you have seen lots of unboxing posts for this as well, but I wanted to share with you guys what I got.

Let me show you the makeup products first:

True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Purple Pop (Full Size)

This is a perfect palette for work or school, because the colors are light and shimmery which can give you a very youthful look. I cannot wait to play with this palette.

Supershock Max Waterproof Mascara in Black (Full Size)

This mascara is amazing! It really gives volume and length on my skimpy lashes. I love the brush because it is so full and thick and it really separates the lashes. 

The consistency is a bit watery though and it takes time to dry but it works! This is a great mascara.

Skin Goodness Moisturizing BB Cream SPF 20/PA++ in Nude (Full Size)

I haven't tried this yet so I am not sure if it's darker than my actual skin color, but I am happy that they included a full size of this and I will also include this in my BB Cream series so in-depth review coming soon.

Ideal Luminous Blush in Peach (Full Size)

I love the color of this blush and I love how smooth it applies on the skin. I actually use this as a highlighter over my peach cream blushes (yes, I love peach colored cream blushes).

Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in Fiery Red (Full Size)

I have never come across a lip gloss so opaque as this one! I generally do not like lip glosses, I do not like the super glossy finish as I prefer matte but this is just lovely to use alone or on top of your favorite red lipstick.

Ultra Color Lipstick SPF 15 in Hibiscus (Full Size)

I love the color of this one! It's a pretty pink color and it makes the face look youthful and bright. It is moisturizing too and opaque, but the lasting power is just so-so. Nonetheless, this is a perfect everyday color.

Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick SPF 15 in Red Kiss (2 Sample Size)

Other subscribers got 2 different shade if this lipstick, but both of them are in the shade Red Kiss which is okay with me. This lipstick is very opaque and true to color, and I think this sample is so cute because it is small and very handy.

Now let's move on to the skincare products:

Anew Vitale Day Cream SPF 25 (Full Size)

I am not sure if this is a new product from Avon's Anew line, because I got a day cream before and this is different. I love the way it smells and it feels so smooth, but I am not a fan of moisturizers so I am not use if I will use this one or give it away.

Anew Genics Treatment Concentrate (Sample Size)

I am not really sure what this is for, but I believe this is an anti-aging serum. I love serums instead of moisturizers, so I might try this one. Note: it is never too early to start using anti-aging skincare products, this will help us prevent premature signs of aging such as wrinkles, age spots, etc.

Anew Genics Cream (Sample Size)

This one has the same benefits as the serum, which can be used after you applied the serum to reinforce it's benefits to the skin. I will try this as well and see how it works.

Anew Genics Eye Cream (Sample Size)

I am in a hunt for a good eye cream because I am going to be honest, I rub my eyes too often that I can see wrinkles forming. I believe this product would be just perfect to remove these wrinkles and also to brighten them up, even just for a little bit. I will definitely update you guys if this works for me.

And there you go guys. For ₱595, I got 7 full size and 6 sample size items, which is a good deal! I hope Glamourbox release their boxes monthly (just like before). Go ahead and like Glamourbox's Facebook page for news and updates on their beauty boxes.

    You are to blame for my sudden urge to try Glamourbox. Hmph. :-P I think you got a lovely set here. Hope you post a FOTD using these products. It would be interesting to see what the whole look looks like when applied.

    Hi Maica! I really want to have their Special Edition Box but I have to wait for my 1st box from them first. I like the blush, mascara and the eyeshadow. I hope they still have a stock left for me. Thank you for the review.
