October Glossybox // The best Glossybox yet?

october glossybox

 

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 PEEL // €12.95 for 15ml

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 MATTE // £6.99 for 30ml

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 MASK // £19.50 for 50ml

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 MASCARA // £14.95 for 4ml

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 // £33 for 30ml

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 under tone, 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!
