July 2012 GLOSSYBOX Shipment

I know it's the beginning of August but, believe it or not, my July 2012 GLOSSYBOX arrived today.  The July 2012 installment, entitled Summer Nights offered the most variety I've ever seen in a beauty sampling program.  The insert card reads, "After a sizzling day in the sun, there is nothing better than a cool summer night.  This month's GLOSSYBOX offers you the essentials you'll need to indulge in products that show off your sun kissed skin and hair and enhance sultry eyes.  Afterwards, thrown on your sexy sandals and dance the night away under the shimmering summer sky."

Overall rating:  Booyah!  I loved the mix of products I received this month.  The insert card led me to expect an eyeshadow or liner rather than an eyebrow pencil as it mentioned sultry eyes but I can always use the pencil as a liner.
