July Beauty Buys: GlossyBox, Bellapierre & Tarte Mascara

I get a regular GlossyBox every month and some months I love it, some months I'm not so thrilled; however their July 'Stars and Stripes' box has definitely been my favourite of them all.
With top picks from across the pond I was really impressed! Carmex Lip Balm, Absolute New York Perfecting Primer, Color Club Glossy Seal Polish and my two favourite items from the box, Tarte Lights Camera Lashes 4 in 1 Mascara and the Bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Lipstick.

My life revolves around mascara and I am forever on the search for one that gives me the most fluttery, long, dramatic lashes possible. I think I've come very close to finding a winner!

This 4ml size that came with my GlossyBox will do me well for a while but it will definitely be something I continue to purchase.

Bellapierre Mineral Lipstick in 'Mandarina' - Bellapierre Cosmetics

Then there's the Bellapierre Cosmetics Mineral Lipstick that I received in 'Mandarina'. What can I say? I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SHADE! I'd have never thought this orange hue would have suited my skin tone and yet I have received so many compliments on it since wearing it. Whilst the lip colour itself felt ever so slightly greasy and needed a good couple of slicks to get an even colour it's easily one of my favourite shades and I would re-purchase for the shade alone. A great summer colour!.

Face all done, I teamed it all with a statement necklace from New Look (which was actually a Secret Santa gift from a good friend!), an oversized ASOS Curve T-Shirt dress (which yet again I chopped the neck off of) and simple black sandals from H&M...
