The application of this product seems kinda silly and messy.

 

I usually use take the day off by clinique and just rub it around my eyes and lashes until the mascara dissolves, then follow up with cleanser.

 

I'm curious if they are actually sending this to everyone or if this will go the the same way the Nuxe shimmer spray did in July boxes.

Agreed. The Nuxe isn't even a better product IMHO, I think it smells like canola oil and cheap jasmine perfume and isn't as useful as the shave oil since I don't always want that much sparkle, but the value difference coupled with the teaser indicating that would be what was in everyone's box kinda left a bad taste in my mouth.

And then there are the folks (such as myself) who received neither the Nuxe oil nor the full size shave oil, but a 1.7 oz sample of shower gel "oil" worth pocket change ($2.31, by the most generous estimate).

 

I don't have a problem with variations per se, as long as the values are comparable. This month the value disparity was upwards of $50. Not cool, GB, not cool at all.

Ugh that's awful, I'm sorry.

According to MSA, every box should have this item, not full size either, deluxe size!!!!  Looks like a possible trip to the eye foundation to me!!!lol!!!  I am so lazy at times, I just use make up wipes and pray for the best depending on what time I get home from work!  I just resigned up with a 3 month special and 2 free past boxes!  I doubt I will get the NUXE, I was under the impression that everyone that item but does not seem to be the norm!

Oh yeah, that would have ticked me off, too. At least the other two were sorta comparable in use, that crappy shower gel is just meh, it isn't even the Rituals stuff which is nice. :(

Glossybox has released a second spoiler: Trifle Cosmetics Lip Parfait Buttery Lip Cream

 

http://experience.glossybox.com/us-2016-august-sneak-peek/

 

The TooFaced mascara remover is allegedly "in every box," but they said that about the Nuxe oil last month, and we all know how that went down....

 

There's no similar promise made re: the lipstick, but I would be happy to receive one for the packaging alone - I mean, seriously, that's a PUG on one of them!

 

But based on my experiences with Grouchybox (oops, er, Glossybox) the last couple months, my box variation will probably consist of 3 Sinful Colors polishes, self tanner, and a dead spider.

You never fail to crack me up!!!  *LOL* Oh, and I am excited to try the lipstick, too!

A dead spider might be an improvement over a $2 shower gel. At least you could use it for Halloween decor and given their shipping schedule lately it would have arrived in time for the holiday.

There's (finally!) what looks to be an August full box post on Instagram:

 

 

Looks like:

-TooFaced mascara melt off

-trifle cosmetics lippie

-Fango body polish

-Wella hair oil

-some type of after sun lotion

-invisibobble hair ties

 

I would be decently happy to get this box - there are at least 3 things I would definitely have immediate use for (lippie, body polish, and hair ties), and the hair oil and after sun would get used eventually. The only item I'm iffy about is the mascara remover (which is of course the one "guaranteed" item). I have pretty sensitive/allergic eyes, and I've read a couple reviews that this stings or otherwise doesn't work so well for sensitive eyes.

 

I will say that those are my favorite hair bands. They really don't leave ponytail indentations, even if used on damp hair - and I have fine, textureless, stick straight hair that typically dents like nobody's business.

I've always wanted to try these hair ties! I'm hoping this is the US box. I have basically the complete opposite of your hair (thick, coarse, curly) and get obscene ponytail bumps and headaches from having to wear them so tight so hopefully they'll work on my hair as well. I'd honestly love this box completely.

Sorry for the spamming comments, but MSA's is also up! 

http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2016/08/glossybox-subscription-box-review-coupon-august-2016.html

The only variation I'm seeing is instead of the Borghese body polish, it's a Borghese face mask. 

 

Edit: I finally scrolled down the MSA review and there's a new magazine thing for us and it seems to show all the variations you could be receiving.

Looks like a good box. I just cancelled because I have too many products and need to cut back. My never ending quest to cut back and it doesn't seem to work in the long run but I keep trying. The pull back to sub boxes is just too strong and I always seem to come back. lol

I like it. I am looking forward to getting my box. My only complaint is the lipstick color. I am glad it is not another red, but I already got a couple of similar shades (i think from allure?). I personally prefer more fun colors like fuchsia, plum, or rose.

I love know what the variations might be. I wonder if that will be the only variations this month, or if it is just a variation from boxes that get borghese? 

 

Can anyone read what the sneak peak for September is?

Someone asked about the sneak peek in a comment and Liz commented: Here is the text from the Sneak Peek: As September quickly approaches, the world turns its eyes to the fashion and beauty scene. GLOSSYBOX has collaborated with an extremely talented illustrator to bring you a keepsake, specially-designed box replete with products for you to set the stage, walk to the runway or simply vogue.

I ran out for lunch today and when I got back to my desk my box had been delivered. I got the tracking email about an hour ago.

 

post-93138-0-85421600-1471028819_thumb.jpg

 

I'm not a huge fan of hair oil the but the Wella one smells nice.

The After sun lotions smells awesome, if you like coconuts you'll love it. I'm just going to use it at regular lotion instead of after sun lotion I love the smell that much. It's a little thin for regular body lotion though.

I'm not too sure about this Too Face melt off mascara dissolver, but I'll try it tonight when I remove my makeup. I just rubbed some of it on my hand and it makes my skin feel nice. We'll see.

I already have a set of invisibobbles from Allure, but mine were black or navy. I like the pink ones too. These are nice and small so they can go right in your purse or even around your shifter in your car. I don't have a lot of hair, it's pretty thin so smaller hair holders are perfect for me, I don't feel like I have to wrap it around my hair a bazillion times for it to feel secure.

I got the "guilty pug" lipstick. The shade is just ok on me, neutral enough. The packaging is too cute. They're cruelty free too. Looks like you'll get one of two shades either guilty pug or exotic fruit.

I got Borghese body polish, I like the smell, very spa like. Looks like you'll get either the polish or one of the various body muds.

 

 

And yep September promises a "keepsake specially designed box"

 

All in all I like this box way better than the last couple and they seem to have stepped it up this month and started to ship earlier.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
