Glossybox Pop Art EditionSunday, October 26, 2014
This month's Glossybox is undoubtedly eye catching. It is full of colour and this limited edition box is emblazoned with a pop-art style cartoon image.
Here are the 6 products that were inside.
I am going to start with the Mask Crème Fraiche de Beauté from cult French brand NUXE. Full size 50 ml, £19.50
This intensive moisturisation treatment provides instant relief for even the driest skin and leaves you looking and feeling radiant. Perfect for protecting your skin against the cold outside and the drying out effects of central heating. It can be applied once or twice a week (or every day if you suffer from particularly dry skin). Recommended to leave on the face for 10 minutes, removing any excess.
Etre Belle Cosmetics Lip Lift Peel - Full Size, £12.95
A gentle and moisturizing exfoliator for the lip area. It gently removes dead cells and refines the surface skin. I am very excited to try this as I have never used a lip peel before. It will also come in handy at this time of the year as my lips need a little extra care. Massage a small amount on the lip area with gentle circular motions, after one minute remove thoroughly with a dampened cotton pad.
Rimmel London BB Cream Matte in Light - Sample size 8ml, £6.99 for 30ml
This Matte BB cream is a 9-in-1 skin perfecting super makeup with a natural matte finish and oil free formula. It minimises the appearance of pores, evens skin tone, mattifies, controls shine all day, smoothens, soothes, conceals dark circles, helps prevent blemishes and gives all-day coverage. I will try it out as I have oily skin and I am looking for something with a bit more of a lighter texture.
Ciate Nail Polish in Big Yellow Taxi - Full Size, £9.00
I love Ciate nail polishes, the formula and quality are amazing and also the bottle looks just beautiful. I am not sure about the shade at this time of year, I was hoping for something a little darker, more of an autumn colour. I guess it can wait on my dressing table until the sun comes out.
Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d'Amour Perfume - Sample size 5ml, £33 for 30ml
I am always happy when Glossybox sends out more perfume samples! I love the scent and the presentation of the bottle! Absolutely gorgeous!
So Susan Cosmetics Flutter Mascara - Full Size, £14.95
I have already tried this mascara as I got it in July from another beauty box. The brush is a bit too short and small for my lashes. Small brushes are better suited for short lashes. Also, the bristles are not very thick - thick bristles help to seperate lashes and achieve volume. I prefer thick bristles as they can get close to the eyes and grab each and every little lash easily. I didn't hate it so I will give it another go!
Overall, I am happy with the box. I like the idea that some of the products will prepare me for the season and help to make me feel comfortable.
