Hello lovelies, i was really excited when i returned home from my holiday to find a Glossybox waiting for me, it was a great surprise to help cheer me up with those post holiday blues. This months box is the Dark Romance edition perfectly fitting for the season, and particularly October with halloween soon on the way.
This is what i received in my box,
Katy Perry Killer Queen Fragrance-
"The striking new fragrance from Katy Perry shows her rebellious spirt, throwing convention to the wind. Killer Queen is a charmingly playful yet lethally gorgeous Floriental fragrance"
I was a bit disappointed to see another perfume sample as there seems to have been one in almost every box lately, however i do really like it. The perfume is a fun floral fragrance and definitely something i would wear so i am happy with it.
MeMeMe Cherub's Blush- Cheek & Lip tint-
"Go from day to night with MeMeMe's sultry rouge tint! Long lasting and multi-functional, it also comes complete with a handy application brush, making it a perfect addition to your handbag for glamourous touch-ups on the go"
When i saw that this was the Dark Romance edition with the picture of the dark vampy lips and nails i was hoping for a nice dark lipstick or nail varnish, and so i was a bit disappointed with this cheek and lip tint. This is a very similar dupe for Benefits Benetint which i have tried but wasn't really fond of i much prefer there pink Poisetint for lips and cheeks. I just wouldn't wear this colour on my cheeks and lip wise i prefer dark bold reds to stains.
Monu Illuminating Primer-
"This primer is paraben free and has been formulated with light reflective Mica particles and soft focus technology to brighten the complexion, add instant sheen and enhance your natural radiance. Other active ingredients include Vitamin E to detoxify the skin and Cassia Alata Leaf Extract to protect and prevent skin against UV damage. Use either alone, under make-up or as a tinted moisturizer for a flawless, illuminating finish"
Monu is a fairly unknown brand to me, I have a hand cream from them that i really like, i received it in a beauty box, but other than that i had never seen any products from them. I have tested this on my hand and it gives a nice sheen to the skin, however having oily skin i tend to stay clear of illuminating bases and primers to avoid shine overkill, and go for mattifying bases so i'm not sure how much use i will get out of this.
Premae Multi-Vit Smoothie Serum-
"Premae is the worlds first allergen-free brand, meaning that anything they produce is more kind to the skin. This serum is the ultimate skin saviour for combination skin: blended with grapeseed, the unique formula helps to soothe redness and hydrate the skin, whilst keeping it matte and shine free"
I had never heard of Premae before receiving this box, it's definitely not something that would jump out to me if i saw it a shop. I tested the serum out on my hand and it felt fresh and tingly on my skin, and as its targeted at combination skin it shouldn't be oily, so i am actually looking forward to trying it out properly.
Eva Cosmetics Mystic Diamond Argon-oil-
"The innovation for your hairs nutrition and shine! The argan oil works to nourish and regenerate your hair giving it volume and preventing frizz, while the diamond powder gives hair shine like never before"
Again this is a brand i had never heard of previously, i was excited to receive this as i love my hair oils, and was sold when i read it contained diamond powder, what girl doesn't love diamonds... i look forward to tying this but i'm hoping i don't fall in love with it as the full size bottle is £22.70!
I am slightly disappointed with this months box, i had high hopes when i saw it was the Dark Romance edition and think i was just expecting more make-up wise, also there was only one full size product in this months box and most of the products where pretty unknown to me, and although i like trying new things it would have been nice to see a few more familiar brands. I am finding Glossbox's to be a bit hit or miss lately and am thinking about canceling my subscription and trying a new beautybox.
Is anyone else a bit disappointed with Glossybox? What other beauty-box's would you recommend?
