October Glossybox 2014 Pop Art Edition (Plus Get a FREE Glossy Box!)

I’ve been out of the beauty-box look since the Summer a little bit. But I’m back on-it with a little look at this month’s Glossybox contents. This month’s October Glossybox 2014 is a special edition subscription, with a pop-art theme and ‘collectors edition’ box. It’s full of colour and as you can see if you scroll down the pictures – emblazoned with a pop-art style cartoon image. But, as nice as a pretty box is…when it comes to a beauty box, it’s all about what’s in it! So let’s take a closer peek…

This months contents are quite a mixed bag between makeup, skincare and body. This gets a big thumbs up from me – I like a variety of stuff, so seeing something for nails, makeup, fragrance and skincare…all very positive so far.

There’s a creamy purple Ciate nail varnish called ‘Talent Scout’ – love this shade and love that it matches the hair of the pop-art illustration. Ciate nail varnishes are pretty good quality and this is full size – so definitely a big tick for this one.

Then we have a soothing and hydrating face mask from NUXE – again, I love a decent size of product and a hydrating mask is always going to be a winner. It’s good to see a brand that is quite a ‘household name’ as such as previously lots of skincare has been smaller, up and coming type brands. Not that this is a bad thing as part of the point of a beauty box is discovery – but it is refreshing to see a ‘big’ name on the skincare front in there.

Make-up wise we have two things – a diddy little Matte BB Cream (shade ‘light’) from Rimmel London and a mascara from So Susan. Both fun pieces, but maybe not the ones I am most excited about…

As for excitement, the Etre Belle Liplift Peel has that one covered. This is a super-fine scrub, designed for the delicate lip area. It’s lovely to see something with a bit of a twist in there and ahead of the typically-chapped-lips-season months is a welcome addition. This is my favourite bit from this months box!

Last but by no means least we have a little bottle of perfume from Yves Rocher – a cute bottle and smells super-sweet. Maybe not my personal taste, but a nice alternative to the miniscule fragrance vials you often find in beauty boxes as it’s a good size (perfect for travel!).

Overall – a rather fun and fabulous box!

    This subscription looks really good! I’ve only just had my second subscription package delivered (I was late on the beauty box train) and I’m really enjoying it so far, its like a little present to myself every month! I’m with You Beauty Discovery, a cheaper alternative but this one looks worth it for the products!

    This box was lovely! I’m so jealous of your Ciate nail polish – that colour looks gorgeous – I got it in white and was a little gutted! Nice photos! 🙂
