September 2015 Glossybox

I was house-sitting this month so missed the arrival of my September Glossybox so opened it a bit later than usual! I had tried to avoid most spoilers so the box was still a surprise.

September Glossybox Review

September Glossybox Review

I wasn’t expecting a design on this month’s box, but I really like it. The colours are lovely! This box is a Style Edition box and contains five full sized products! Well done Glossybox, you’ve really impressed me this month! On to the products..

Luminous Colour Masque Review

Maria Nila Luminous Colour Hair Masque - Full Size £18.95
I've never really tried a hair masque before, and for this price it isn't something I would pick up as a spur of the moment purchase. Maria Nila is a Swedish brand that I have never come across before. This is 100% vegan and free from parabens and sulphates and packed full of nourishing ingredients. I can't quite put my finger on what this smells like but it has a sweet scent. This masque left my hair feel so soft. I wouldn't use it every day, at this price I am going to save it for special occasions.

Invisibobble Review

Invisibobble Traceless Hair Ring - Full Size £4
I have been wanting one of these Invisibobble’s since I first saw them and I am so pleased there was one in my box. It is basically a coiled plastic ring which claims to be traceless and doesn’t leave a knowing kink in your hair. This is perfect for the mornings when I want to tie my hair back to do my make-up. They don't cause any breakage or damage on your hair either. I can't see myself going back to normal hair bobbles after trying these.

Marsk Brush Review

Marsk Brush Review

Marsk Eyeshadow Brush Pro - Full Size £16.70
You can never have too many eyeshadow brushes! The bristles on this brush are firm but soft and allow you to create a precise colour blend on the eyelid. The design is simple yet sleek. I've never considered Marsk brushes before Glossybox, but it really does feel like a good quality long lasting brush.

B.Cosmetics B. Sculptured Contour Kit - Full Sized £10.49
I have heard of this brand before and seen it in Superdrug. I got the B. Primer from then Norwich Blogger Meet goody bag and have been loving that so I couldn't wait to try this contour kit. Another vegan and cruelty free product it's good to see Glossybox catering for all markets. I've been using the contour powder and really enjoying the matte finish. The highlight is a lovely colour and not too shimmery. I haven't wore this as much as I am rubbish at applying highlighters!


Bellápierre Shimmer Powder - Full Size £12.99
I received this shimmery eyeshadow in the colour Whesek which is a shiny dark silver colour. I would love to tell you how long lasting it is, or how well it applies but I couldn't get the lid off! I think you can just about see on the photo that the lid is misaligned and no matter how hard I tried, it was stuck! Glossybox have very kindly sent me a replacement but I haven't tried it yet.

Overall, I am impressed with this month's box containing ALL full sized items! How are they going to top that next month?
