July 2013 Glamourbox | Unboxing & First Impressions
As you can see, everything is different. From the box, to the craft paper that was used, even up to shredded tissue papers, this box is screaming the word ‘Special’.
On to the contents…
True Color Eyeshadow Quad in ‘Purple Pop’ (Full Size)
Full Size 5.6g | PhP 449
I love the packaging & presentation of this one. It’s sleek and elegant, and the decently pigmented too. I’m not a purple person when it comes to eyeshadows, as most of you know, but I’ve heard that purple eyeshadows are great when it comes to brown eyes, so I might give this one a try.
Ideal Luminous Blush in ‘Peach’ (Full Size)
Full Size 6.23g | PhP 370
I am actually fond of Peach blushes and I like the sheen/luminosity of this blush. I haven’t tried it yet, so I’ll let you know once I have. It’s pretty pigmented though, and the shimmer is not overbearing.
which I really appreciate
Supershock Max Waterproof Mascara in ‘Black’ (Full Size)
Full Size 10g | PhP 420
I don’t plan on opening this one yet since I have a ton of opened mascaras waiting to be emptied before they expire, lol. But I have used this mascara before, and I like it so far. It’s quite volumizing. Not so much on the lengthening side, though.
Ultra Color Lipstick SPF 15 in ‘Hibiscus’ (Full Size)
Full Size 3.5g | PhP 379
I love the shade of this one. It looks hot pink but I see some coral in it. This is definitely something that I’m going to wear on a daily basis.
Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss in ‘Fiery Red’ (Full Size)
Full Size 6.5ml | PhP 299
I like the shade of this one. It’s a blue-based red lip gloss and it’s really opaque. I’m really excited to wear this especially now that we’re approaching August.
Skin Goodness Moisturizing BB Cream SPF 20/PA++ in ‘Nude’ (Full Size)
Full Size 18g | PhP 399
I tried to swatch this BB cream and dang, it’s liquidy! At first I had some problems getting the product out of the tube, but then upon squeezing a couple of times, it just didn’t stop, lol. This is one of the BB creams that I’ve encountered that is liquidy. It provides a good coverage, though.
Anew Vitale Day Cream (Full Size)
Full Size 15g | PhP 399/font>
I haven’t really began using this one yet, since I’m currently in love with my skin care routine. But once I do, I’ll let you know.
Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick SPF 15 in ‘Charged Cherry’
& Ultra Moisture Rich Moisture Seduction Lipstick in ‘Red Kiss’ (Sample Sizes)
Full Size 3g/3.5g | PhP 375/PhP 379/font>
Unfortunately, I didn’t get the ‘Charged Cherry’ shade. I got both lipsticks in ‘Red Kiss’. I’m not really sure why. Haven’t opened them yet, so I don’t know how they are when worn.
Anew Genics Treatment Concentrate, Anew Genics Cream
& Anew Genics Eye Cream (Samples) (Sample Sachets)
Full Size 30ml/30g/15ml | PhP 1,799/PhP 1,299/PhP 1,299
If you know me guys, you know that I’m not really fond of samples in sachets, so I’m not sure if I’m going to use this. But I do appreciate the extras
So those are all of the items that I got in my July Special Edition Avon Glamourbox. And like everybody else who got this box, I gotta say, I love it. It’s one of their best boxes so far. I am very impressed with this box rest assured that you’ll see this in my future reviews & FOTDs.
Now let’s get to the computation.. Take note that we’re computing all of the full-sized products only..

That’s four times what I’ve paid for! EXCLUDING the sample items that I got, such as the sachets, those cute little lippies, I mean, WOW If you can still get a hold of this box, then do so because you wont regret it (I believe the subscription is still open).
All in all, I love this month’s edition of Glamourbox, and I hope that they continue this kind of ‘trend/tradition/selection’ (whatever!), and I hope that they go back to their month-to-month subscription because I sure would love to get more surprises from them.
So far my experiences from all of the beauty boxes that I’ve received for this month was just beyond compare. I feel like these beauty boxes are spoiling me, giving me everything I wanted and more!
