Glossybox November Review 2015

Once again I am on the drag with my reviews of the beauty boxes, my last review was the style edition but there has been a box inbetween these, oops! This month Glossybox is titled from lipstick to lashes. On opening the box I was greeted with a decent selection of items, pretty much all make up items and all either full size or decent sized samples.

First item, Eyelure Natural Lashes (RRP £5.00, full size received) I haven't worn falsies for so long, I have no real need to as I feel I can achieve a decent look with the right mascara but these do look quite nice and I might keep them for my birthday meal out. 

Next item was a primer, Emite Diamond Hearty Primer (RRP for full size £25.90, sample tube received), now I do love a primer, especially a brightening one but to try and compete with my beloved clarins beauty flash balm (not technically a primer but I love it under makeup) is a hard task. This is quite nice, it doesn't rub in particularly well I have to say but I do quite like the look it achieves once on the skin. 

The third item is a brand I'm not overly keen on (I always feel it's a tad cheap looking and not great results), MUA Eyeshadow Palette (RRP £4.00, full size received), however I have been quite surprised by this. Yes the packaging is a bit dull but the actually shades are lovely and I have been able to achive some nice results, I can't say I'll be rushing out to buy more of the brand but for day to day use this palette is perfectly adequate. 

The fourth item is my least favourite. I am very picky over lipsticks I wear and I often favour gloss, the colour that I have receive is just not for me, I can't get away with wearing a shade like this which is a bit of a shame. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (RRP £7.99, full size received), nice item to include it's just not for me. 

The final item is from a nice brand, I love their packaging! Royal Apothic Body Lotion (RRP £14.50, small tube received) ohhh this is a nice item I only wish that they'd sent a larger size seeing as this is a body lotion and not a hand cream as I initially thought it was. It smells lush and is a really nice body lotion and as I said I love the vintage style packaging. 

Overall I think this is a pretty nice box this month, next month I am really looking forward to as Glossybox are collaborating with top beauty blogger Really Ree so hopefully that will be a really good box. 

What are your thoughts on the latest Glossybox?

  1. What is a primer? haha. OMG i need help with make-up! I've not worn falsies for ages either. I found this awesome Benefit mascara and it is so good! xx #fartglitter

  2. Great review. I keep going back and forth wondering whether to sign up to one of these but I'm concerned I won't like everything and then feel it was a waste. But on the other hand I am rubbish with make up so this may help! #TriedTested xx

  3. Definitely not a fan of that lipstick colour either, but the palette colour combination looks interesting!

  4. Ooohhh...I like the vintage design of the cream as well. Glossy box look fab. Thanks for sharing. #fartglitter

  5. I hear great things about Glossybox, maybe I will treat myself one day! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  6. I wouldn't even know what the purpose of half of the things in there is. Now that I'm getting older and contemplating moving to a country where make-up wouldn't immediately be sweated off my face perhaps I need some lessons.
