The October 2017 Glossybox | Unicorns VS Mermaids

Hello October! A step closer to Winter and a new month means Glossybox time. This months theme is either Unicorn or Mermaid, you could receive either box. I know which one I wanted and that’s the one I got – Unicorn obvs. Head over to Gemma Etc to see what’s inside the Mermaid box.

My unicorn box includes a limited edition collectors box housed in pastel rainbow shades with a touch of iridescent foil printing. I just know I’ll be using this box to store my beauty bits in – it’s too pretty not to use!

Makeup Revolution Mermaids VS Unicorn Eyeshadow Palette

Glossybox Oct 2017 Musings of a Makeup Junkie (1)

Generally I don’t wear crazy colours on my eyelids, and I had my eye on this palette, but never got round to buying it. Now is a good excuse as any to try it. I believe this is the first time Glossybox have featured a product by Makeup Revolution in their boxes, and if you’ve not yet tried anything from the range, now is a good time to. The colour selection is quite decent as you have a mix of shimmers, Blues, Pinks ad Aqua shades as well as Purples. What with Halloween round the corner, this would be a great palette to create some mermaid type looks with!

Lord & Berry Magic Brow Perfect Eye Brow Pencil

I’ve not tried a brow product by Lord & Berry before and for someone like me who is always rushing, a brow pencil is just what I need when I am on the go.

Sleek Makeup Cream To Powder Blush

Again, another product which I’ve never tried before, but always wanted to – blusher by Sleek! I have heard lots of good things about this formula and some of the colours have been compared to MAC. I am looking forward to trying this out.

Kawaii Enterprise Brush Cleansing Egg

I already own one of these, not by Kawaii, but you can never have too many right? This little portable device works really well cleaning and disinfecting brushes and I use mine weekly. If you’ve not tried one before, your brush cleaning days are about to change!

Bang Beauty Cream Colour

This product was actually missing from my box because there was a change to October’s box, so I’m unable to tell you more about it. If you received yours. let me know what you think!

This months box overall is quite colourful and if you’ve never tried anything from these brands before and you love the look of the collectors box, give it a go!

The slogan jumpers are available to purchase from the Glossybox website from 11th October and retail at £29.99. Are you a #GlossyMermaid or #GlossyUnicorn?

    The packaging is beautiful and I love the concept behind it but I’m not sure if I’d get much use out of the products.

    I was thinking of getting the box, but I’m still not 100% convinced that I need it 😀 You’ve got some nice items though, I’d love to see a review on the palette ^^

    Cute packaging and a cool mix of brands in there too! Shame you were missing a product though.
