Glossybox – November 2015

It seems like only 5 minutes ago I was opening my October Glossybox, and now here I am again.  October really flew by, and with two family birthdays and Christmas to prepare for I am pretty sure November will go even quicker. Anyhoo, enough about my surprise at time passing, on to this month’s Glossybox contents!


Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick – 720 Fire and Ice – £7.99

Let’s start with my least favourite item in the box, this Revlon lipstick.  Firstly, the colour is really not for me.  However, this is totally my fault.  This month, subscribers had the choice of four colours to choose from, and I decided that I would wait and have a surprise.  Secondly, the formula is a bit odd,  I tested it and immediately took it off because I needed to go out.  I could feel it on my lips even after I removed it though.  I would imagine this is because of the vitamin E and avocado oil that have been squeezed into the lipstick. It also made my teeth look way more yellow than I can cope with.

MUA Eyeshadow Palette  – Undressed – £4

I love MUA eyeshadows; they are very affordable and are decent quality.  This palette has some great smoky dark and neutral colours, in mostly shimmery metallic shades.  The only downside is that it doesn’t seem to contain any matte shades, so if you were only ever going to buy ONE palette (madness!) then don’t make it this one.

Royal Apothic Body Lotion – £14.50

This travel size lotion contains Lactic Acid, which is great for smoothing and hydrating the skin.  I tried a little bit of this on my arm earlier and continued about my day.  I will say one thing: the smell is super strong.  I genuinely cannot decide if I really like it, but I definitely don’t hate it.  I think when I use it properly, I’ll start with it just on my legs, and will see how it goes.


Emite Diamond Heart Primer – £25.90

I am a very loyal fan of Too Faced Hangover Primer, so this one will have to be verrrry special to replace it.  My first impressions are that it is more of a hydrating primer than a slippery silicone one.  It is peach coloured, so should offer some colour correcting magic.  I noticed – when I tried a little on the back of my hand – that it has a slight sheen to it, so will potentially be illuminating too.



Eylure Natural Lashes – £5

I have never used false eyelashes *hides in shame* so I have no idea what to even do with these.  I am very keen to give them a go though, and who knows maybe I will become that person in Sainsbury’s with wonderful fluttery lashes.  These particular lashes are a more natural style, so are probably great for a beginner to practice with.


So what do you think of November’s Glossybox? Do you subscribe, do you want to?
