Something rare happened to me. I was actually at home when my October Glossybox came. I’m always surprised when I’m home when a parcel comes because I usually miss them.
Or they get put in the bin. Thanks, Hermes and Amazon for making me have to get my parcels out of dirty bins. Idiots. One time there were even snails on one of the parcels and I had to shake them off. Not even in a cool Taylor Swift way. Just in a ew there’s snails on my parcels and I want t die way. Gross.
Anway, enough of the disgusting stories. Let’s get on with the old Glossybox unboxing type thing.
Glossybox October 2016
Truffle Cosmetics // Lip Parfait Buttery Lip Cream
The thing that stood out most about this product was the packaging. Not only is it bright and cheerful, but it’s made out of cardboard rather than plastic like most lippies.
It’s a nude shade with a matte finish that’s infused with vitamin E to help keep your lips plumped and hydrated.
But mostly LOOK AT THE PACKAGING.
Universal Beauty Cosmetics // Secret Flush
The packaging of this product was also the thing that stuck out to me the most. Mainly because it doesn’t work. I assume you twist to push it up. But it just clicks and clicks and clicks. Pants.
It would be pretty decent if it wasn’t for this. It’s a cream blush and lip stain duo, a simple way to add a bit of colour to both your lips and cheeks. Ideal to take out and about with you or if you’re travelling.
I am sad about this situation.
PS.. Pro // Miracle Pencil
Wait, what? Primark. This had a Primark tag on it. I guess this is a Primark product. Amazing use logic there, Corinne. I’m basically a genius.
This is a 3-in-1 pencil that contours your lips and prevents colour from bleeding, as well as acting as a concealer for your skin and can brighten eyes when it’s applied to the water line.
Nuxe // Shimmering Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse OR
At first, I thought this was nail varnish and I was excited because it looked Christmassy. It’s not, though. It’ just a sparkly oil. Apparently, it’s a cult classic but I’ve never heard of it. Sometimes I think brands say this when something is expensive to justify the price.
It has a blend of precious (wut lolz) plant oils and vitamin E to soften and hydrate your skin, it nourishes your hair and also can make your legs appear longer (yeah, I thought WTF too. How can oil make your legs longer?).
I’m intrigued and also confused.
Bee Good // Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliator
This is good news because it’s something I will actually use. I love getting face wash in Glossybox! This exfoliates, hydrates and calms angry skin. Great for dry, sensitive and problematic skin!
I don’t know what this is. It’s mystery shampoo. I’m guessing we’ll find out at some point what brand it is by. I’m not sure how I feel about this.
It’s going to be on some girls blog later in the month I think. That’s too much effort. Either tell me or don’t.
Overall, I do quite like the October Glossybox. But I am sad the lip/cheek tint is broken and also frustrated that I have this shampoo but don’t actually know what brand it’s by. I’m not sure if I’m going to care enough later in the month to go to this blog and find out like the information leaflet says. Meh.
What do you think about the mystery shampoo?
