Glossybox Review: October 2014

Hey guys, I hope you’re all having a great weekend. I for one am feeling very productive and am finally getting round to reviewing the ridiculous amount of products I have stacked up. First up is the October Glossybox.

This month’s offering comes packed in a very slick ‘Pop Art’ themed box. I am super impressed with this gorgeous box and will definitely be using it for storing some of my products in. Slight negative though, where was my insert Glossy? Don’t get me wrong I’m not bothered about the magazines they sometimes include, but for the purposes of writing up my review and learning a little about the products, it’s a lot easier with the insert. Just saying!

Nuxe Crème Fraiche de Beaute Masque – 24Hr Soothing and Rehydrating Fresh Mask 50ml – This is a product that looks perfect for my skin. Nuxe claim that this mask has ben specially formulated for dehydrated and sensitive skin. I’ve heard rave reviews about Nuxe and am really excited to try this mask. Nice one Glossy!


Être Belle Liplift Peel – Another belter of product. This little tube is supposed to hold the secret to smooth, plump smackers. I can’t wait to try this and report back. PEACE & POUT!


RIMMEL BB Cream Light – Hmmmm this is where the box kind of goes downhill for me. I mean some people will probably love this little BB cream but sadly it’s not for me. I don’t think that the colour is especially suited to my skin tone.


So Susan Flutter Mascara – OK this is a product that looked incredibly promising. I am a big fan of So Susan and the fact that they are 100% cruelty free is a big win for me. The packaging is so lovely and this gorgeous looking tube is very reminiscent of YSL’s False Lash Effect Mascara which is one of my cult classics! They claim…

An intense carbon-black mascara formulated with hyaluronic spheres to help you achieve the darkest, curviest lashes possible. The long brush with extra stiff bristles helps to achieve voluminous, multi-dimensional lashes in just one coat.

Now I eagerly unscrewed my mascara to see what the wand looked like and it looked fab. When I screwed the wand back in however I heard a popping noise and there was a mini explosion of mascara. Initially I thought that I had just caught an air pocket so tried again and the same damn thing happened. No matter how many times I have tried my mascara it does the same thing. The only way to stop my mascara wand looking like it’s been caught in an oil slick, is to screw it tightly shut every time I want to apply a coat, effort…

Ciaté Paint Pots – Glooooooosy please, enough with the nail varnishes. I pretty much say the same thing every month, please, please give it a rest. I mean it’s not even like the colours that I’m getting sent are that great. I actually have this colour in a Caviar set and it looks fab but on its own it’s a bit like Tipex!


Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d’Amour – I am in no way a fan of perfume samples, like I always say you can get these free at beauty counters. The fact that this is more a perfume mini is some consolation but I’m sorry Yves Rocher, this stuff does not smell great. It’s dubbed a romantic fragrance. To me it’s too sickly sweet and in no way unique. Sorry but I have to be honest!

All in all the box wasn’t too bad, but it’s by no means the best I’ve had from them. I thought that with the Pop Art theme would come unique, bright cosmetics that would inspire us to be creative. Also to add insult to injury if you google the French Pop Art glossyboxes that were released in Sept, they included NARS Orgasm blushers. I mean… Really Glossy why were these not included in our boxes? Not good! I’m giving them one more chance and if they haven’t upped their game I’m bailing!

How did you find your box? Love it? Hate it? Leave me a comment below telling me your thoughts.
