September GlossyBox

Hi Everyone,

London Fashion Week! The inspiration behind Glossybox's September box. They released the image of the outside of the box a few weeks ago, This is by far my favourite Glossybox design ever! Words cannot be used for my excitement over the design of this box.

This month has also contained the first ever issue of GB Mag, I quite like that Glossybox has gone back to their product cards, I always loved them.

This months Glossy Mag includes A/W Trends, Interviews with Nilam Patel of HD Brows, Mark Hampton of Toni & Guy, Day in the life's... and the Glossybox's team's top 5 picks! As well as sneaky little exclusive offers dotted throughout!

I was half excited and half disapointed when I first opened my box I must admit, But after thinking about it, this really isn't a bad box and everything in here may get used at least once. I'm a bit confused though as two of the brands aren't actually British and this is a London themed box... 

1) Eyelure Pre Glued Lashes - £5.06
Pretty straight forward lashes, no glue required, I do think its actually pretty nice to see an extra lash band in there for multiple uses. I don't really wear false eyelashes and I think if I ever was going to they'd have to be pretty natural, I'm not sure I'll use these but if not I'll add them to my kit. 

2) Toni & Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe Classic Shine & Gloss Serum - £7.19 for 30ml
I've not tried many Toni & Guy things, other than getting my hair done there. I'm slowly trying to get into haircare products so I'm excited to give this a whirl.

3) Elizabeth Arden Untold - £48-69 for 50-100ml
I love when you get quite a big perfume sample in Glossybox, the bottle for this is so cute too! I'm rubbish at describing scents but this is definitely very floral, I'm trying to refrain myself from running out and buying a full size!

4) Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Onyx Eye Liner - $14 for 3g
I'm a little confused why this is in this box as its in dollars and this is a London box... But I think its just a pretty standard felt tip liner, I'm not the best at eye liner so Im unsure if I'll actually get use out of this, Maybe one day. 

5) Rimmel Stay Blushed Blusher in Sunkissed Cherry - £4.49 for 14ml
This is so pigmented! Just thought I'd get that out there, I wouldn't even say you need the pea size amount it recommends, I'm sure this will last me quite a while and for the price its amazing!

 (Swatches: Bottom to Top - Rimmel Stay Blushed Blusher in Sunkissed Cherry Blended, Rimmel Stay Blushed Blusher in Sunkissed Cherry Heavily Swatched)

I wouldn't say this is the best box I've received but I'm pleased with it, especially the design! I've seen one other variation of the box, I quite prefer this one I think. Its right up my street with the make up! Although let me know what you got in your Glossybox If your subscribed!
