I can’t even begin to explain how EXCITED I have been for this months Glossybox. I’ve literally had butterflies in my stomach since September and I’ve been checking my emails religiously for a dispatch email from Glossybox. I don’t even know why I have been extra excited this month. Ha. Probably down to the fact that us glossies will receive a gorgeous, pretty, fab, lovely, adorable MERMAID or UNICORN themed box this October. C’mon girls… who doesn’t love mermaids and unicorns! Not only that, this month we will all receive five FULL SIZE make-up products with a total value of £51.48 which is definitely something to be happy about considering we have only paid £13.25 for the subscription.
Mr. Postman delivered my box today and I have been sent the gorgeous pink & blue UNICORN box. I’ll admit I was kind of wishing for the MERMAID box as I’m totally a mermaid at heart but I was still over the moon with my gorgeous unicorn box design and it is sitting on my dressing table right now looking FAB.
Glossybox – October 2017

Sleek Make-Up – Crème To Powder Blush – RRP £5.99
This cream-to-powder blush is highly pigmented and a little goes a long way. It claims to give a natural, dewy finish and is applied to the cheeks and blended to create a powder finish. Each box will contain one of six shades. unfortunately I got the shade CRIMSON which is so bright its unreal. I would have preferred a more subtle, lighter shade as I think the crimson shade will look ridiculous against my pale skin, I’m guessing I’ll look like a clown. I’ll give it a go nonetheless and I’ll let you guys know what I thought of it. I’m quite new to Sleek Make-Up and I only own one of their products which is the Black Eyebrow Powder – which I’m not a big fan of so maybe this blush will be the decider for me as to whether or not I like Sleek products and if I will buy them again.

Kawaii Enterprise – Brush Cleansing Egg – RRP £7.99
So this Brush Cleaning Egg from Kawaii Enterprise is a bright pink silicone make-up brush cleaner which is easy to use and helps to keep your brushes in great shape and free from bacteria. You just pop your two fingers inside the egg, wet your brush and add a bit of liquid soap or facial cleanser. You then swirl your brushes against the nodules and bumps and run the bristles of your brush down the deeper grooves to realign the brush hairs without damaging them. I think this is a great little pick for this months box as everybody needs clean brushes – but I already own a set of brush cleansing eggs which I’ve reviewed here, so there is no point in having another really. I’m sure my sister will love the Brush Cleansing Egg so I’ll give it to her or maybe I will add it to a bundle of other beauty products and run a GIVEAWAY for you lot. What do ya think?

Lord & Berry – Magic Brow Perfect Eyebrow Pencil – RRP £14
The Magic Brow Perfect Brow Pencil is a highly pigmented pencil and it has a marbelised tip which is swirled with two complimentary shades so it looks natural and produces a gorgeous colour variation found in natural brows. I got the brunette shade as I told Glossybox I had black hair in my beauty profile so I’m guessing you will get a shade based on your beauty profile… so make sure if you ever change your hair colour to update your details on the website. I really like Lord & Berry products and I own quite a few of their products already so I’m really happy with this high end product being in this months box. I can’t wait to give it a try and I hope I like it as I’m struggling with my brows at the minute, haha. The pencil retails at £14 so it is worth more than the subscription itself.

Bang Beauty – Cream Color – RRP £19.50
The Crème Color from Bang Beauty is a multi-purpose cream which can be used on the lips, cheeks and eyes. It comes in a small tub and has a super shiny mirrored lid which looks beautiful, it is also vegan and cruelty-free so thumbs up. I have never heard of Bang Beauty before so I cant wait to give this product a go as I love discovering new brands – I suppose that’s the best part about subscribing to a beauty box. The Crème Colour is priced at £19.50 so the value of thus product alone outweighs the £10 subscription cost.

Make-Up Revolution – Mermaids vs Unicorns Eyeshadow Palette – RRP £4
I’m not really into my eyeshadow palettes because I’m absolutely awful at eye makeup and prefer to get my eyes done by a MUA – but, these mermaid and unicorn colours are so pretty, dreamy and amazing that I think it’s about time I taught myself how to apply eyeshadow properly. YouTube to the rescue! The Mermaids vs Unicorns Palette is a budget-friendly palette at just £4 and there is a double ended eyeshadow brush included too. I think I will try some mermaid and unicorn inspired makeup tonight and if it doesn’t look poo, I’ll post the results on my Instagram page.

Also included in this months box was a gorgeous half UNICORN sticker which I have put on the back of my phone.
Oh and before I forget to mention – Glossybox have also just launched their MERMAID & UNICORN sweatshirts which are available to buy for £29.99. They are gorgeous so I might have to get myself one!
