Our hearts go pitter-patter when we see the gorgeous shipping box outside after returning home from work!  Even better, the blush pink inner box (once uninfested with the weirdly shedding black crinkle paper) is great for keeping all my various box samples we get over the course of the month. Our boxes were VERY similar this month. (Although, we did get different colors of the nail polish)

Megs– Say that three times fast.  Goodness.  Well, I’m a huge fan of GlamGlow and I love their SuperGlow Mud Masks (even though it is horribly expensive).  This cleans very nicely.  The mud to foam is a bit weird but easy enough to do in the shower.  Not sure that I’d spend $35 on this when a $5-6 drug store cleanser works just as well…

Paige– I have to agree with Megs. Being that it’s clay, it is a little strange to use. I do, however, feel the exfoliation right away. I was pleased with the results, pores seemed smaller, blackheads seemed to dissipate. Still, with the $35 price tag, I feel like that money would be better spent on a mask that I might use a couple times a week, rather than a cleanser that I would use twice a day.

Megs– Super pointy when it began but wore down really quickly.  I actually had to sharpen it again before doing my second eye.  Nice blender tip on the other side but my problem is that it smudges a little too well when you don’t want it to.  Two hours in and I looked a bit like a raccoon (and not intentionally).

Paige– I have never really learned how to apply eyeliner the correct way. I can use it, but it always seems to smudge, and I never get a straight line. This was no exception. I am not sure whether that was me or the liner, but it just had no staying power, it smeared, everywhere. Probably would not buy this again.

Megs– Well, it went on nicely.  Mascara applied over it without any issues but I couldn’t see a difference in my lashes.  Just another step to the mascara process that wasn’t needed.  Too bad, I would have loved to discover falsies without the glue…

Paige– I love the idea of a primer that thickens and lengthens. I did need a couple coats, but I found that it made a difference! Megs is right, its not the look of false lashes, but it is an enhancement under your regular mascara. I’ll plan on pulling this out for dates and other special occasions.

Megs– Fine as lip balms go.  Nothing really remarkable about it. Not a whole lot of flavor, color, or scent.  Nicely glossy without being sticky.  Weirdly hard to get out of the tube…

Paige– This smelled and tasted great! Almost like sugar cookies. I was a bit disappointed that there was absolutely no color to this balm, I would have loved the subtle pinky hue that the package implies. Besides that, the balm is nice and glossy, but not the kind of sticky that will make a mess out of your hair if it blows in your face. I like it!

Megs– I saw the color on the card and was SO excited!  Then I saw the color I got (which while pretty, wasn’t the awesomeness that was featured on the card).  The polish went on VERY nicely.  Stayed really well.  The color I received is very nice and in October or November when the leaves are turning (in other parts of the country, they never seem to turn in Southern California) I’ll pull out this russet/pink/gold and pair it with some fabulous sweaters and jeans.  In the mean time, I’m going to hunt down the color on the card.  On a side note the card points out that the ingredients in this are ‘vegan’.  What would other polishes have in them to make them NOT vegan?!  Maybe I don’t want to know the answer to that question…

Paige– I got this really pretty pink that’s perfect for me. I am not a metallics person, so I was relieved when I opened the box to find the pink, non metallic polish. It did go on smoothly and dried quickly (which is awesome because I am super clumsy with wet nails), and will definitely be worn.

What did you guys think of the August Box?
