November Glossybox: Lashes & Lipsticks

Hi Guys,

This months Glossybox marks 4 years of being subscribed to them, which has gone a bit too quick for my liking. But for me as well as being a bit of a treat, it also seems to remind me that it's either the middle of the month or near the end. Which knowing its November is a bit terrifying, as I haven't even started the Christmas shopping! 
I adore this month's theme of the box and I have to say the contents suit it perfectly. It's based on Lashes and Lips, which is always a great makeup look to focus on at this time of year. A simple eye with a dark berry lip, or even a slightly smokier one with a nude or pink, its a classic! 

Eylure Naturalites Lashes - £5
As Im not a big false lash wearer myself, I do always keep an eye out for lashes that I can wear to get used to the feeling of them. The Eylure Naturalite range is one I've seen before and never tried, so Im really looking forward to giving them a go. I think they're great because they're such a light lash, they naturally give that little bit of added volume to the lash line and have a thin band, making them comfortable to wear. 

MUA Eyeshadow Palette in Undressed - £4
I've tried quite a few MUA Palettes in the past and for the price, the quality is fantastic. They're creamy, offer a great range of shades and have a fantastic amount of pigment to the. This palette has actually reminded me to dig out some old favourites and get back to using them. It's also pretty good at being a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette, with the shades being near identical. 

Royal Apothic Moisturising Body Creme - £14.50 for 35g
I dont know if it's just me, but I find the packaging that Royal Apothic have is so cute. I was a bit surprised to see it was a body cream though as it is quite a tiny tube, compared to the usual body creams. 

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Black Cherry - £7.99
I could of squealed with delight when I got an email through from Glossybox asking me to choose which lipstick colour I would prefer in my box out of four. Which included probably one of the most popular shades that Revlon have, Black Cherry. I have heard so much about this one, but again its something else that I have never actually gone and picked up. It's such a gorgeous deep darkened berry, perfect for the Autumn/Winter. 

Emite Diamond Heart Illuminating Primer - £25.50 for 15ml
There have been quite a few products from Emite in Glossybox and every single one that I've had the opportunity to try, I have loved. From their makeup to their tools and brushes, they have a fantastic range to pick from. The primer itself is peachy in tone, but brightening, it adds such a radiance to the skin, but its not shiny. I love a slightly dewier look in the winter, as the skin can look duller, it's like a little makeup pick me up.

Overall I'm really happy with the box this month, I always love a box that's that bit more makeup orientated. It might not be the highest in value box, compared to past ones, with the overall total of the box coming to £31.49 . But the actual selection of products and the fact that there are four out of five full sized products included, its a brilliant one to try.
