June 2013 Glossybox Curated by Dallas Shaw Contents Review Spoiler

Get ready for a couple more review type posts. I took a two week vacation (nothing too exciting, I'll fill you in later) and came home to a full mailbox. My most awaited prize was my first ever Glossybox, that was curated this month by Dallas Shaw. Here's a spoiler review of my Glossybox contents. Please don't mind the shot of my kitchen (remember, I'm keeping it real now), I was just too excited about this box and took a phone shot as soon as I opened it.

  • Booth Honey Almond Dry Oil Mist - this is a misting spray that you can spray on your skin for hydration and glow. I used it twice today on my face and it gives great glow without feeling oily or greasy. This isn't something I'd normally buy for myself, but I like using it. It's a good size bottle too, not full size but bigger than a deluxe sample.
  • SpaRitual Nail Polish - I'm not a big nail polish fanatic (I typically use red, hot pink or Essie Ballet Slippers). The color I received, Home Body, is a pinky nude. I'm going to try it out tomorrow, but like most nail polishes I get, it will probably sit in the cabinet barely used.
  • Tarte Complexion Enhancing Lipstick - This lipstick is nude with a pink core, which is supposed to make your lips look more plump. I already have plump lips, so it doesn't do a lot for me. I ended up smudging the two together for a toned-down hot pink.
  • Oscar de la Renta Perfume Sampler - I received six different perfume samples. So far none of them are my style (too powdery), which wasn't a surprise as I've never liked any Oscar perfumes. I'll use them all though, just to see if any are a good fit for me.
  • Philip B. Leave In Conditioner - I haven't used this yet, but I think it'll be great for using after the pool.
This all sounds so negative, but I was quite underwhelmed with Glossybox. I was so incredibly excited, especially after reading reviews of previous boxes. The curated boxes are supposedly the best, too. 

I saved Glossybox for last and opened my Beauty Box 5 first. BB5 was so great, for only $14, that my $21 Glossybox just didn't do it for me. I'm going to stick around and order July's box to see if I like it any better.
