Ladies, you know that I've been feeling my monthly GLOSSYBOX arrivals, and while I loved May and June's goodies, I'm confident in admitting that July's contents may be my favorite yet {you'll see why soon enough}.

For those of you who aren't familiar with GLOSSYBOX, it is a monthly beauty subscription service wherein you receive 5 deluxe size beauty products for $21 a month based on the personal beauty profile you fill out when you sign up.

While June 2016's box was a Tony Awards Special Edition focused on red carpet everythang, July was all about the F-U-N with a pool party theme guaranteed to make your heart do a little splish splash. My personal favorite inclusion? Introducing it in 3-2-1.

My puppy-loving heart has been dying to try Too Faced's Melted Chihuahua for ages, so when I unboxed it you know that I whipped that baby out and applied it to my lips in 5 seconds flat! Ladies, ladies, ladies...Melted Chihuahua, a gorgeous caramel nude that has a v. Kylie Jenner / 90s feel to it, is every bit as drool-worthy as the name implies; and the attached doe-foot applicator makes application amazing - smoothing the product evenly and smoothly across lips. Like Too Faced claims, this has the power of a stain, shine of a gloss, and pigmentation of a lippy. Personally, because I'm partial to a smoky eye, I love love love the neutrality of this particular shade, but would def try out other colors in the line. Repurchase worthy? A million times yes!


While applying oil to my hair and nails is literally second nature for me, I have yet to delve into the oil all-over mantra that so many have embraced, so I was a little intimidated by NUXE's Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse; nevertheless, the packaging was too pretty to resist, so I had to give it a shot. OMG ladies, I have no clue how I survived without this product before. I've used it as a body lotion, perfume, and shine serum for my hair in the last week alone and it. is. brilliant. What's so lush about this product is that it's an oil, but it feels dry, so you don't look or feel oily / greasy. Would I re-buy? Yes! As a multi-purpose product, this could replace so much in my beauty cabinet; but as a full-size product {!!!!!} I doubt that I'll be running out anytime soon.


Not gonna lie, I honestly thought this was a hair product until I read the description and realized that it was actually...for nails! Unlike the numerous spray-on nail polishes hitting the market lately, Leighton Denny Miracle Mist is a speed-drying spray {to make polish dry faster}, with an added element of cuticle conditioning. You guys, this product lives up to its name: it's a total miracle! I was in a rush the other day, and needed a quick mani change, so I applied base coat, color, and top coat, then sprayed this generally over my nails for 2 to 3 seconds and voila! My nails were literally dry and smudge-proof. Is it a total necessity? Only if you don't have a lot of nail-painting time on your hands, as it definitely speeds up the process. Re-buy? Occasionally. It's a bit on the pricey side; but I would like to have it on hand for those times when I need to paint my nails and run!


Shadow sticks are my fave for the summertime {and those days when I don't feel like washing my makeup brushes}, so finding EYEKO's Satin Taupe in my GLOSSYBOX was a welcome treat {especially since I've never tried EYEKO before}. I'm more of a bronze-y / gold gal when it comes to eyeshadows, but I really love the simplicity of this shade, which wears as a neutral taupe with an olive undertone. The shimmer in this is absolutely stunning; but you do have to apply it with a heavy hand to really pick up on the pigmentation. Would I Repurchase? Not in this shade, but I would def pick it up in another color.


This is only my second or third go with sheet masks, but I'm pretty positive that this one from Fengo Essenziali is my new favorite. The mix of avocado, acai berry, and kelp extract really work together to give skin a healthy, rejuvenated glow that awakens tired skin {which is something that all of us could benefit from, amiright?}. I wore this for quite some time while I was shopping the #NSale, and I was amazed at how moisturized and nourished my face felt after removal. Repurchase? Not for the summer; but I would love to give it another go in the winter, when my skin gets really dry and chapped from the cold.


If you're looking for makeup removal innovation, this is so it! Inside this package is a fiber-packaged glove with built in makeup removal properties, so you simply open the package, add water, and wash your face. It is that simple {and that awesome!}. I took this along when I spent the weekend at a friend's house, and it was magical due, in large part, to the fact that I was able to lighten my load by leaving my makeup remover at home, and rely solely on this. This is so incredible for travel and really does a killer job at cleansing skin - and removing even the toughest makeup {we're talking waterproof mascara}. If you like the glove enough, you can even wash it, and re-use another night. Would I Repurchase? Yes, yes, yes! These will also be making an appearance in the stockings of my besties come Christmas!
