August Month Glossybox

Hello everyone!

It 's time for Glossybox! OMGosh I am super excited about this month's Glossybox because on my Facebook, Glossybox has given us a hint that Illamasqua is going to be in the box.  You have no idea how happy I was when I read that.  I was ecstatic to the point that as soon as I got the confirmation that my box is in shipment, I literally tracked it everyday and checked my mail box everyday even though I know it wasn't going to come that day, hoping for a surprise.  Silly? I know but I can't help it.  I really want my box!!! NOW!

Well it is here and I can't wait to share it with you guys.  I did the unboxing on Youtube so pls watch it when you can, and if you like my videos, please like me and subscribe as well as leave a comment.  I read every one of comments.  It truly does mean a lot to me.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  Thank you so let's move on to the products I received in my box shall we!

Here is my Youtube link if you want to watch when I did the unboxing of my August Box.  I looked like a kid in a candy store HAHA

Here is my box.

I swear I love Glossybox box! Every time I look at it, I always say to myself this is so pretty!

This is always what it looks like when I open my box.

OMGosh when I read the card and it says, pure luxury! I am in total Heaven.  I know it will be some awesome stuffs in there like: Illamasqua

Well here is the products that are in my box:

BIOLAGE Exquisite Oil Repleneshing Treatment   Price of Full Size  $22.00/3.1 oz

This Treatment is versatile serum infused with a Moringa Oil Blend.  This ultimate potion gives instant shine and weightless to all hair types.

OLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum     Price of Full Size $48.00/ 1.0 oz

This high powered vitamin C complex helps smooth out lines and wrinkles, fights environmental aggressors and keeps your skin moisturized, nourished and protected.  Apply morning and evenings.
I will definitely try it since it seems like it is a good anti aging products. :)
I got mine with 0.5oz so that is like $24.00

TOUCH IN SOL Feel like Honey Moon Skin Base.   Price of Full Size $20.00/1.13oz

 Apply this fantastic primer after your skincare routine and before your makeup.  Its honey texture firms and revitalizes the skin and allows for a better makeup application.

I have to tell you, I am quite excited to try this.  I am soooo happy I got this.  I will definitely start using this product immediately.
I got this one in 1.06oz so almost full size. Let's say $13.00

ILLAMASQUA  Nail Varnish   Price of full size: $14.00/0.5oz

My new found love.  Finally, I get to have you! Ohhh Illamasqua. Haha ok you can laugh that is quite alright! I am just so in love with this brand.
I first try my very first Illamasqua nail varnish at Sephora.  I actually dare myself to purchase a $14 nail varnish.  I returned it a week later without opening the box.  I did try it at Sephora so I know the color looks good.

 However, I can't seem to make myself wear it because I kept thinking that is a lot of money.  I can buy a lot of nail polish with that. Hello Essie at TJ Maxx is like $3.99 and sometimes $2.99 if I am lucky.  Anyway, move on. I know I know I am rambling now.

Well the color I got is in Taint.  It is a perfect shade for the Fall season.  Not surprising since Fall is right around the corner.  I love fall but as much as I love fall, I hate it because I know cold is coming. No more short sleeves, flip flops and shorts.
I got this one in Full Size!! $14.00 YAY

ELLIS FAAS Ellis Lips  Price of full size: $35.00/0.095 oz

The lightweight and long-lasting lip products come in three fabulous textures; creamy lips for a matte finish, milky lips for a gloss finish and glazed lips for a touch of color.  They are paraben-free, loaded with vitamin E and blend into the lips leaving them soft and conditioned.
I got this Full Size too!! Awesome right!!

I love the color of this gloss.  It is so smooth and not sticky at all.  It has none of those funky smell nor taste so I am so glad about that otherwise I have to give it to someone else cause I am particular about my lipstick and lipgloss on their taste and smell.
The only thing I do not quite excited about this is the packaging.  It is on the bulky side.  It is like a pen but big pen. Ha Ha.

Here is the swatch of the color.  It is very light.  It has a golden hint to it, I noticed it in my picture.

This is my FOTD.  I just added the lipstick after I did the swatch and put it onto my lips and took a picture of it. Ha ha.  I was curious as how it looks like on picture.  This is on top of my lipstick "Angel" by MAC.

Well that is all for my August edition of Glossybox.  I am so in love with all the products I received in the August box.  I am still so giddy over it right now because I am loving everything.  I can't believe all the products I got.  It is pretty much all the products I can use for FALL season!! Everything. Totally.  From the colors of Ellis Faas lipstick that I can match it with my Illamasqua nail varnish.  Ohhh total Heaven for beauty on earth.

Eyes: Maybelline Color Tattoo and The Dream Palette by Too Faced.
Blush: Stila
Lips: Angel by Mac topped with Ellis Faas Milky lips

Well until next time.  Thanks so much for reading and visiting!
