This months Glossybox theme was pop art. Let’s take a moment to admire the amazing box, shall we?

glossybox october 2014 Okay – now that’s out of the way, we can get to the products. This was probably one of the better boxes I’ve had. Although I was hoping and expecting for a bit more colour as that’s what the leaflet in the box hinted at last month. I was expecting some bright eye shadow or lipstick. Sad. It’s still a fab box though, let’s have a gander.

October Glossybox 2014

CIATÉ LONDON PAINT POT // £9 for 13.5ml

CIATÉ LONDON PAINT POTThis range has loads of bright colours and boasts it’s amazing pigmentation – just one coat should do the job. I wonder if I’ll be impressed. I do love this colour and am super sad mad about not being able to wear nail varnish at work!


ÊTRE BELLE COSMETICS LIPLIFT PEELAnother full sized product, this is a lip peel. I can’t say I’ve ever tried a lip peel before so this was interesting.

You just massage a small amount into your lips, leave for a minute and then wipe off with cotton pads.

I tried it but don’t think I liked it. It felt like I had sand on my lips and I can’t say I felt much difference afterwards! It was annoying to have to leave it on and felt a bit unnatural.


RIMMEL LONDON BB CREAM MATTEThis 8ml sample is probably enough to give me an impression of if this will work for me. I do love BB creams and when my current one has ran out, I might give this a go. It’s a 9-in-1 beauty balm and it has salicylic acid, which is a plus for me, because my skin is a brat.


NUXE CRÈME FRAÎCHE DE BEAUTÉ MASKThis is a 24 hour moisturising mask that soothes and reduces redness. You apply it for your face for 10 minutes, then wash off to enjoy hydrated, soft and fresh skin. oooooo.


SO SUSAN COSMETICS FLUTTER MASCARAWoo, more full sized products! This is the second time I’ve heard of this brand, I had a blusher in one of my previous glossyboxes that I’ve been using almost daily since I got it, so I’m excited to try this. Pity there’s about 4 mascara in the queue ready for me to open next! I think I have enough mascaras to last me the next year.

This is a black mascara to help you get that volume that all mascaras promise, but I’ve not seen any provide. Is this the one?


YVES ROCHER FRANCE QUELQUES NOTES D’AMOUR This is a sample – and it’s a lovely perfume. It’s very sweet and kind of has a powder undertone, like a light rose talc powder. Or something. I don’t know what I’m saying. LOLZ perfume expect.

The official description of the scent goes like this:

This scent encapsulates the feeling of falling in love through fusing notes of damascus rose, guaiac wood and patchouli.

So, there ya have it. The October Glossybox. This was a good one, I can’t lie. I’m impressed and I feel like I’ll use every one of these products – even the perfume, which is something I don’t usually say about boxes! GO GLOSSYBOX! After a few months of utter wank, you’ve upped your game and they’re getting better and better. Don’t disappoint me next month, please!

Tell me what you would most like to try.



  1. Love the art work for this box. I unsubbed from GB as I always seemed to be disappointed with the products and I hardly ever used the products either. I want to join another beauty box service but I’m not sure which to go for. xx

  2. This sounds like an interesting glossybox! The mascara and the nuxe creme have called up my attention tbh! And the box itself is just gorgeous! Shame, as you said, that it only contains thw nail polish that goes with it!


  3. Got to love it when you get a box where you will use all the products. 🙂
    I am debating whether or not to try glossy box because I have read mixed reviews but I think with every subscription box it’s hitty missy.
    I love that colour blue nail polish deffo something I would use. xox

  4. Wow I love that this months box is pop art theme! I absolutely love pop art!

    I’ve nominated you for the sisterhood award! Check out the details on my blog 🙂

  5. Love the print is different from all the others the items you got are awesome like the color of the nail polish and brand, will like to know more about Rimmel BB cream.

  6. Wow!!! Everything is so cute especially the box. <3 I used to have monthly subscription beauty boxes but then I decided to unsubscribe and take a break because I wasn't fully satisfied with what I'm getting. I wanna try Rimmel's Matte BB Cream, too. 🙂


  7. OK! I admit it, this box has me chomping at the bit about starting up my subscription again! Hands down the best box, I would love everything in here! Eeek what to do??! Do I give in and go Glossy once more? If I knew every box would continue to be so good I wouldn’t hesitate!

  8. omg these are all so cute and pretty, I want them all! I’ve never tried ciate nail polish which is kind of a disgrace for such a nail art addict like me. You aren’t allowed to wear polish at work?! THAT BLOWS.

  9. Ahh I do love the box!! I am so interested in getting into GlossyBox but I doubt they would deliver all the way to South Africa. Bleh.

    I cannot believe I STILL haven’t tried the Rimmel BB cream – so badly want to!

    Lovely box – enjoy it xxxxx

  10. You definitely do not need any mascaras, looking forward to you sharing which is the best. This is a great box I would be excited to try the BB cream, mask and perfume. Normally like nail varnish but not sure about this colour. The lip peak sounds interesting Lucy x

  11. That perfume is so cute looking and that lip peel interest me since I’ve always had a problem with my lips. BTW that box art is pretty FAB!

  12. Oh wow, this looks like a really good box. I’m current trying to find a good beauty box to subscribe in Canada, no idea what or where to start though. 🙁

  13. I totally loved the packaging and my Ciate nail polish, mine was in a bright pink shade.
