I received my October Glossybox week before last but had not got a chance to go through the contents properly until now and although late wanted to let you know my thoughts as a few of my followers had asked me. Glossybox is a monthly beauty subscription box which costs £10.00 (plus p&p) per month and 3, 6 & 12 monthly subscriptions are also available.
Five personalised beauty products are included each month which are normally sent wrapped in pink tissue paper with a black bow in the signature pink Glossybox but this month is one of the collector’s edition boxes – two different versions available this month; the Unicorn or the Mermaid – I received the Unicorn box – which is beautiful. You can sign up through my referral link here if you want and then you will get 20% off your first box when you subscribe.
Makeup Revolution Redemption Palette Mermaids VS Unicorns – Full Size £4 – not really a fan of Makeup Revolution eye shadows so although nice to get a full size palette and colours do look quite nice not going to use as going to give to my niece who I know will be v happy to get it;
Kawaii Enterprise Brush Cleansing Egg Full Size £7.99 – this is cute and you just need to pop fingers inside the ‘egg’, wet brush and add a dash of liquid soap swirl brushes over the small nodules at top to lather and then remove the foam and product build up by running bristles down the deeper grooves which is also supposed to realign the brush hairs without damaging them – I have tried a few times and does work well and useful to have but would not be rushing out to purchase again as I find the small mat I got with my beauty blender cleanser is handier and works just as well, if not better-though still nice to get another full size item;
Lord & Berry Magic Brown Perfect Eye Brow Pencil (deluxe sample) Full Size is £14 – I love lipsticks from this brand and this pencil looks the right colour for my eyebrows ‘brunette’ and is quite creamy does not ‘drag’ too much – however I am unable to try yet as only got my ‘micro blading’ done 10 days ago (intend to post a review about it shortly) and cannot use any makeup products on my brows for 14 days – however will try then and if I think it is good will do a separate review;
Bang Beauty Multi Purpose Cream Color in Dolce Pink (can be used as a Blusher, eyeshadow, highlighter & lip product) – Full Size £19.50 – Never heard of this brand before and this is another Full Size item so Glossybox are spoiling us this month. I initially was a bit surprised that Glossybox included two blushes but as this can also be used a number of ways not too disappointed, although would still have prepared a different makeup item. It has a lovely creamy consistency, is a beautiful rose gold/pink colour, does look well as a blusher and can be used on the lips and eyes but as it is not very pigmented think it is better as just a blush or highlighter – it is lovely applied on top of the Sleek blush as well. It also feels a bit sticky when applied to the eyelids / lips but looks and feels ok just under the eyebrows. Although a quite good natural blush and packaging is nice, I do not think it is worth £19.50 – I definitely would not purchase at this price – however still happy was included and was nice to try.
This box is good value and it was nice to receive four full size items plus one deluxe sample this month (states brow pencil is full size on card but full size comes with a brush on one end). I will also use four out of the five products which is better than a number of previous boxes. Although I do feel that it would have been even better if Glossybox had included a different makeup item instead of two blush type products. As usual we also got a sneak peek of one product which we will receive in the November box (below). As I said in the October Roccabox review I have been considering which monthly beauty box / boxes to cancel for a while but overall I am happy with Glossybox this month and as I am able to get next months box free, (have enough points to redeem – takes a while now) I will see what all the December boxes are like before I decide.
*SPOILER* – November Sneak Peek – states this contour brush has incredibly soft short bristles for seamless contouring, highlighting and blending so makeup becomes a second skin. Love trying different brushes so hopefully this one will be good.
In addition you can currently purchase a Limited Edition Beauty Case for £59.99 (free p&p & worth over £270), while stocks last – love the look of the reusable case although I see I already have a number of the items but as it is fantastic value I may still just have to get one (photo below).
Look forward to any comments you may have – if you have received this month’s box would love to know what you thought.
If you are not already a follower would love you to follow my blog too – would mean a lot. I intend to have more posts up tomorrow and I am also going to do an Octobers favourites post as well, it will be up tomorrow or Wednesday.
Hope you all have a fantastic week and a lovely relaxing break if you are off.
Thank you and take care.
