July Glossybox 2014 - Stars & Stripes

With another month comes another Glossybox, this months theme is 'Stars & Stripes' - i didn't receive a GlossyMag this month.. Have they stopped doing that now??.. Because i didn't receive a mag i have no idea as to why it's Stars & Stripes theme for July however a quick online says:

Special Edition GLOSSYBOX filled with American beauty heroes

The July box claims to be filled with 4 full sized products and one sample - I was a tad disappointed to see that there wasn't a Tarte Mascara in there as many people got the mascara and i was so hoping to see it inside the box but nope.
Carmex Lip Balm - £2.69 *FULL SIZE
I've already used this lip balm before in the past and still do now, i love this lip balm and constantly repurchase it when i can. It's amazing for dry chapped lips and smells amazing too! This is a must-have staple for your handbag!
DR Bronner's Magic Liquid Soaps - Baby Mild Liquid Soap *SAMPLE
I've heard a lot about the DR Bronner's Magic Liquid Soaps, apparently it's a multi-use product and so many people use it for so many different things. It has a blend of Organic Coconut, Palm, Olive, Hemp and Jojoba Oil as well as pure vitamin E. It has many great ingredients inside and sounds amazing! Can't wait to use this.. Apparently you can even use it to clean your make up brushes and it works wonders??.. May have to give that a try..
Color Club Nail Polish in Glossy Seal - $8 *FULL SIZE
Color Club nail polishes are made in New York, with non-toxic, cruelty free ingredients. The shade Glossy Seal was actually formulated just for the July Glossybox's.
I quite like this shade, not something i'd normally go for but it is gorgeous - the wand has a thin tip which makes it easier to apply.
ABSOLUTE New York Perfecting Eyeshadow Primer - $4.99 *FULL SIZE
I'm actually excited about this eyeshadow primer as i've just ran out - i've actually got this on today and so far so good!
This eyeshadow primer is said to be oil-free, ultra creamy formula, evens skin tone around the eye and keeps eyeshadow crease-free through out the day.
Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd Mineral Lipstick in Cat Walk - £20 *FULL SIZE
Lastly is this lipstick from Bellapierre Cosmetics Ltd, the shade in Cat Walk which is a gorgeous pink shade! - However £20 for this lipstick?? Is this lipstick high end or something?.. It's more expensive than MAC!
The lipstick is smooth and creamy and applies extremely well, the shade is gorgeous and really pigmented to. It can be worn quite sheer or can easily be built up.

What did you think of this month's Glossybox?..
