Glossybox - September


I can't quite believe it's taken me this long to blog about September's Glossybox, before you know it October's will be here! Well anyway, I think last month's Glossybox may be my favorite yet! It came packed with 5 items, all of which I would happily use!

First of all was the make up brush which I actually forgot to photograph as I'd already taken it out to use so sorry about that! It's by a brand called Marsk and is said to be the perfect companion for your eyeshadow with the bristles of the brush precisely shaped to help create the perfect on-trend eye look this Autumn. Along side this was the Bellapierre shimmer powder which is the perfect shade of grey for a smokey eye. Apparently this is a firm favourite amongst many makeup artists so I have high hopes for this eyeshadow, especially as it claims not to smudge, fade or crease!

Next we have a full size tub of the Luminous Colour Hair Masque by Maria Nila. I've never actually used a hair mask before, I'm always worried it will do something weird to my hair so I've never risked it but this one I am willing to give a go as I trust Glossybox (don't let me down!). One thing I must say about this hair mask is it smells absolutely amazing! So amazing it makes you want to eat it, so if it leaves my hair smelling like that then I'll be happy!

The fourth item in last month's Glossybox was a nail varnish from Nails Inc and I got the shade 'Battersea Park' which is a really lovely khaki colour, perfect for Autumn! I have actually tried this already and only did one layer but it gave perfect, even coverage so I'm looking forward to using this with a base and top coat to test the staying power (I'm terrible for chipping nails!). Lastly were three 'traceless' hair rings from a brand called 'Invisibobble' (such a great name!). I have seen these working there way into the lime-light recently and almost bought some from Primark but I was glad I didn't when I got this box. These scrunchies are a clever design which secure your locks without leaving a kink, which is what we're all looking for in a hair band, am I right?! I have used these already and they do work well, it barely feels like anything is there which is great for me as I often suffer with headaches if I wear my hair up.

So those are the items I received in the September Glossybox. I know people often say 'Isn't it a waste of money?' or 'I feel like I'd never use the items', but the way I look at it is, I'm spending £13.25 (including p&p) to get £30 worth of products and if there is anything I don't like I'll just give it to friends and family to try. Another good thing is that every month you can fill out a quiz for each item you receive which gets fed back to the company so they know what people liked and what they didn't like, and the more you do the closer you are to getting a free box! So take it as you will but I really look forward to my Glossybox treat every month as it's always a surprise to see what you get!
