If you didn’t already know, the October 2017 Glossybox has an extra special theme and this month it’s Unicorns Vs Mermaids! I was secretly hoping mine would arrive in the unicorn box as there are two different designs, they cost £10 each plus postage and packing and it’s filled with amazing products that will definitely brighten up a dull Autumn day.
So you can safely say I was over the moon when I opened up the packaging and found which design I’d been sent and you can be sure that I’m keeping the box for storage in my office, regardless of what’s inside. Anyway, onto what products came with the October Glossybox.
Full Size – RRP £4.00
Makeup Revolution is one of my favourite drugstore brands and this palette is absolutely gorgeous, it’s possible to create so many different looks with these 12 vibrant colours. Perfect, as I’m still attempting to be slightly more adventurous with my makeup. Each shade is highly pigmented, the powder has almost a creamy feel and blends in really easily, I’m pretty sure as with most of Makeup Revolution eyeshadows this one lasts well too. It’s got to be worth every penny.
Kawaii Enterprise Brush Cleaning Egg
Full Size – RRP 7.99
I already have a larger brush cleaning egg but anything that saves me time on this weekly chore is always a winner, even better as it comes in pink. I think this one would be perfect for eyeshadow or medium sized face brushes, especially if you haven’t got many to clean. As with my other brush cleaner I wouldn’t use it on my makeup sponges, I’d worry they’d split. These brush cleaning eggs are extra gentle and do get your makeup brushes super clean, I simply use a tiny amount of baby shampoo with mine. It’s such a handy tool to have.
Lord & Berry Magic Brow Pencil
I don’t have that many brow products and was excited to see this pencil inside this months Glossybox. It came in the shade Brunette but mimics the natural colour found in your brows. It’s super pigmented and really soft, making it easy to apply. I think this one will get so much use in the coming months.
Beauty Bang Cream Colour
Full Size – RRP “20.00
This is one of those products that is designed for practically everything from a blusher, highlighting cheek bones and as an eyeshadow or lipstick. It’s so simple to use, just by dabbing it on with your finger tips and applying the colour where ever you want it. I think this shade will make a stunning highlighter and a really neutral lip shade, perfect if I’m in a hurry but don’t want to go completely bare faced.
Sleek Creme To Powder Blusher
Full Size – RRP £5.99
First of all, let’s ignore the fact that I am the world’s most clumsiest person and ended up putting my finger through the blusher as I was taking the plastic wrapper off ready to take this photo. I’m not a great fan of cream blushers but this one feels so silky soft and easy to blend with a makeup sponge. The shade is absolutely stunning and I’m sure I’ll be using it for both both day and evening looks.
This has to be probably my favourite Glossybox ever with such a cute, colourful theme, plus this month there are four gorgeous full sized products, how fab is that? There are a couple of new brands for me to try and two that I already adore almost every product they have. You can also get your hands on an embroidered sweatshirt for £29.99 from their website, but you’ll need to be quick as there’s only a limited supply.
Glossybox is a monthly subscription box which costs £10 per box, plus postage and packaging, each month there is a different theme. I can’t wait to see what the November box will include.
