October GlossyBox

Hello again my sweets,

This is my second to last GlossyBox until I need to decided if I stay with these or change to a different subscription box, so I need your help! What do you guys suggest and which company do you think are the best?

This month the theme was 'Dark Romance' which I think is quite fitting as the days are getting shorted and winter is setting in! I think this winter will be the coldest for me as being a student I doubt I'll be able to afford heating :P

At first glance I wasn't overly pleased with the box this month because I feel once again they have sent me similar products that I have already received before and there isn't the variation I was hoping for :/ however when I read more in the products themselves I thing there are a couple which I might really enjoy :) once again I received a Glossy mag which just has some information about the GlossyBox HQ and some other products! I like this little bonus as it has some good stuff in :) 

Broadway Nails - I'm not a massive fan of fake nails as I find them a pain to apply and normally to long that I cant do anything when I'm wearing them! However these are easy apply that you just stick them on and they will last a week! These are also medium length which I think will work well for me :) just a glitter French polish which I think I might try out around Christmas when I want nice nails and not worry about chipping :) - Pack from £7.99

Premae Multi-Vit Serum - I think this might have been the product I was most excited about when I opened the box because I have never used a serum before so thought it would be nice to try one out just also this is aimed at combination skin which mine is :) it says it soothe redness and hydrate skin which is all I want! But also keeps skin matte and shine free :)  you use it before your moisturiser morning and night! - 50ml £22.50 

Monu Illuminating Primer - When it comes to primers I have no idea which ones are good and which are rubbish, so hopefully testing out a higher end one compared to some I have used in the past will show me their real power :) this one protects from UV damage and enhances your natural complexion :) you can wear it on its own or under make-up :) - 50ml £24.95

MeMeMe Cherub's Blush - This is a cheek and lip tint which is long lasting and easy to apply :) you can use it to add colour on your cheeks and lips going from day to night :) I like the idea of these but I have used Benefits one before and couldn't get the hang of it! I know people love these and swear by them so I might give it another go and see if I can master the art of liqued blusher :P - Full size £5.50

Katy Perry Killer Queen Fragrance - I love trying new smells and finding new perfumes however the bottle you get for this is enough for one or two wears and I guess you could get these free anyways! They say its a playful fragrance however I don't think with this size bottle you could get a real sense of it! I live so close to Fenwicks I normally pop in and try new smells so I could have just done that for this product! Think I might just pop it in my bag and use it for emergence use :P - 50ml £29.50

So thats it, October box done! Overall I think theres some good stuff but not my favourite box I have received! I'll have to see what November brings and see which company I sign up for in December but if any of you like a different company please let me know :) 

Remember to follow me on BloglovinTwitter and Instagram if you've enjoyed :) 

Thank you for reading, Bye :)


  1. I was thinking of getting Glossy Boxes but think I'm going to go with Love Me Beauty - you get to chose what box you receive so no risk of getting stuff you don't want.

    I love the smell of that Katy Perry perfume, think I'm going to ask for it for christmas!

    1. Yeah I know I have heard so much good stuff about them :) want to try something new!! xx

  2. The blush looks lovely, it can definitely be tricky getting the application just right with liquid blushes though. I think the trick is to apply a small amount & blend super quickly!
