October 2014 Glossybox

This month’s Glossybox is probably one of my favourite designs yet! I absolutely love the pop-art theme. I had avoided pretty much all spoilers this month too which was a bonus so the box was a complete surprise (except for the Nuxe Paris Mask). The only problem I had was there was no info sheet as Glossybox are trialing a paperless card (Bit of extra effort on my part finding it as it was poorly advertised) so I had to Google the products to find out how to use them/prices etc which was quite annoying.

Ciaté London Paint Pot
This full sized product in my box is this lovely nail varnish from Ciate. I believe the colour is called  Snow Virgin worth £9. For some reason, mine doesn’t have the little bow like some of the others I have seen! This white colour looks a bit plain on its own but I can picture myself using this alongside other colours to create some Christmas nails! I also test painted a nail and it lasted really well and stayed chip free for longer than my other nail varnishes.
Être Belle Cosmetics Lip lift Peel
 I have never owned a product like this before but it has quickly become a part of my daily routine. The scrub brushes away any dead skin on the lips and leaves the perfect base to apply lipstick onto. My matte lipsticks now glide on. I don’t know how I have coped without a product like this before and it is perfect for these colder months where my lips are that little bit drier. 

So Susan Cosmetics Flutter Mascara
 This mascara didn’t really do anything for me unfortunately. It was no better than the one I currently use at less than half the price. I did enjoy the packaging though, I think it looks really sleek and expensive but the product just wasn’t for me.

Rimmel London BB Cream Matte
I have actually got a full sized one of these which I love to use in the summer, but for the colder weather I prefer having something with a bit more coverage. The colour match is spot on for me, and I might keep this in my bag for touch-ups throughout the day. The size is quite small so won’t last me long, but at the same time I don’t really use BB creams this time of the year anyway.

Yves Rocher - Quelques Notes D’AmourI quite like the cute little bottle that this perfume sample came in. The scent is really nice, quite summery though which is a bit of a shame as I am not transitioning onto more autumnal scents and trying to find a new perfume for this season. It will get used up though all the same! These are great to put in your handbag (as long as the lid is firmly in place!).

Nuxe Crème Fraîche De Beauté Mask
 I knew that this would be in my box this month due to the spoilers we received last month, and I can’t say it’s a product I’ve ever tried before. This mask is supposed to soothe  any irritations and leave your skin feeling moisturised for up to 24 hours. I put this mask on my skin, left it for 10 minutes then rubbed what was left of it in. I couldn’t believe that the thick layer I had applied had completely soaked into my skin! That’s what I loved about this mask; the fact there was no need for it to be removed. I applied this in the evening and my skin was still lovely and soft the next day.

This month’s box also contained a spoiler for the November box -. I think Glossybox is going to have to start getting really amazing or I might be dropping it next year so I can just buy my usual products.
