June's Glossybox - Summer Style!

Firstly, for those of you that spotted an un-finished blog entry, ignore! I scheduled it to go live today thinking that I would have had the photos uploaded by then, but I completely forgot about everything. I remember doing that with a Youtube video once, all the bits I was meant to edit out, I left in.. very embarassing!

Anyway! Onto this months Glossybox... I haven't really read any reviews on this box, so I'm jumping on no bandwagon here, and all opinions are my own, as always!

Glossybox exclusive pro beauty brush
MeMeMe nail gloss (in shade 'sensuous')
BM Beauty bronzer
Caudalie fragrance
Vichy dermablend ultra-corrective foundation cream stick

I am mega excited to try out the foundation. I watched one of pixiwoo's youtube video's a few weeks ago and she used vichy foundation on a girl prone to acne. I actually made a note of this foundation because I was intrigued, so this little kit is gonna help me to decide whether to shell out for the full size one, so top marks there GB!

The nail polish - I have never tried anything by MeMeMe before, however the colour of this just doesn't do anything for me.. its a nude/natural colour, or the colour of concealer, if you like! I've got a few nude polishes in my stash and they don't do anything for my nails.. a nice pastel shade wouldn't have hurt, considering it's meant to be a summer box!

The caudalie fragrance, perfect size at 10ml. This is more like a refreshing spritzer than a perfume and although the smell is pleasant and 'fresh', the scent doesn't last long on the skin at all (I'm talking minutes before I can no longer smell it on my wrist). However, a nice size to pop in your handbag for a freshen up.

The BM beauty bronzer.. I received this exact brand in my GB around christmas time, but in a different shade. To me, this is just a mineral based eyeshadow, however they are calling it a bronzer, but it really could be any! It does give a nice glow to the skin, but can imagine this would be quite hard to work with as a bronzer due to the size of the pot... handling this with a bronzing brush could get a little tricky!

The thing I was most disappointed with was the brush. If it was a named brand then fair enough, but a brush by Glossybox? Is this even a brand now? The bristles don't feel any different from a £1.99 brush kit I'd buy from ebay.. last month it was a mirror with glossybox on the front (which I thought was just a kind gesture because of their 1yr birthday) but this month a cosmetic brush? Are they attempting to bring their own line out or something?!

What did you think of this months GB? Were you impressed?
