Glossybox UK November 2015*

I’ve always been a big fan of the Glossybox – I mean, who wouldn’t love a beautifully packaged pink box of goodies arriving at the door every month? But, they have seriously stepped up their game in the past few months. Absolutely everything in this month’s box is a winner, and now that we’re heading straight into party season, I can see myself reaching for my new goodies incredibly regularly!

The theme for this month’s box is Lipstick to Lashes (although unfortunately, I didn’t receive a lipstick) so I thought I would start with the lashes! They’re Eyelure Naturalites, a brand that I’ve never tried before, but I love how subtle the lashes look.

I’m a big fan of lashes, so I can’t wait to give these a trial run! They come packaged with a little vial of adhesive, and they are a beautiful, glossy black, so these will be absolutely perfect for adding a subtle oomph to my lashes over the next few weeks.

When I saw the tube of Emite Diamond Heart Primer, I got rather excited! I’ve been really trying to remember to use primer on a daily basis, so this new one came at the perfect time!

The brand promises that it gives skin a beautiful healthy glow, and I don’t think you want anything else at this time of year. The formula is a soft peachy-pink colour, and it completely disappears into skin, leaving it feeling very soft and smooth. It’s a great base for layering even the lightest of formulas on top.

As something of a neutral eyeshadow fiend, I was absolutely ecstatic to receive a full size palette from MUA. I’ve never tried anything from the brand before, so a palette packed full of 12 stunning browns was a great place to start.

The palette feels well considered, and the shades range from buttery neutrals to charcoal black. The mix of satin and shimmer finishes is great, and the palette is a great one to slip into a makeup bag if you need to amp up your look during the day.

I think the product I was most excited about was the Royal Apothic Cream Creme which I received in the scent Venetian Grove.

As if the packaging wasn’t gorgeous enough, the scent is something special – a mix of Currant, Plum, Orange, and Clove which smells so clean and fresh, it’s an absolute joy to apply.

The cream itself feels wonderfully rich, and since I’m so in love with the fragrance, I’ve been using it mainly as a hand cream so I can eek it out for as long as possible! Even though the cream is quite thick, it sinks easily into the skin, and leaves my hands feeling and smelling great!

This may be my favourite box yet!

I love it when it’s new Glossybox time. I love the packaging, and the boxes are always a great mix of new brands and products which I can’t wait to get stuck into. November’s box is a great balance of makeup, skincare and a full size hair product, and the brands are a great mix of ones I love and new ones I’ve been wanting to try! Did I also mention 3 of the products are full size?

Perhaps my favourite in the box is the full size Burt’s Bees lip shine. I think I’ve tried everything from Burt’s Bees apart from the glosses, so I was super happy to see it nestled in this month’s box.

The colour is an incredibly pretty, sheer strawberry pink, and I just adore the sweety fruity scent. The Lip Shine feels really thick to apply, but it’s not at all sticky, and I think the texture is perfect for protecting lips from the cold.


I love facial oils at the best of times, but now it has gotten super cold, I’m relying on them completely for my evening moisturiser. I’d never hear of Monu before, so I was excited to try their Capri Facial Treatment Oil. It’s designed for oily or spot-prone skin, so I’ve been using it around my chin where I can get a few hormonal outbreaks. It has an incredible citrus scent, and it feels lovely to apply – very rich and quite thick. I only need a couple of drops to hydrate my skin all evening, and I think that the citrus oils in the formula have worked to clear up a blemish!


I’m a little obsessed with the Lollipops eyeliner – the pink and leopard print packaging is adorable, and I think it looks a little Japanese. As a child I was (ok, still am) slightly obsessed with Hello Kitty, so the pencil really reminds me of that sort of thing! I love that the pencil is wind up, meaning it’s perfect to pop into your makeup bag without having to worry about carting round a sharpener with you. The formula is incredibly creamy and pigmented, just like I like eyeliners. I wish the brand was slightly easier to get hold of in the UK as I would love to try out more!


I’ve never tried Umberto Giannini hair products before, so I was excited to try out the Miracle Worker with Argan Oil. Designer for thick, coarse or frizzy hair, the product is designed to leave locks silky smooth. Even though my hair isn’t the thickest I’ve ever seen, it gets weirdly frizzy and fuzzy if I am out in the rain or if I get hot and sweaty, so I used a little of the Miracle Worker before getting ready for the gym. The formula is a little heavier than the ones I normally use, and it is quite heavily scented, but it worked a treat to smooth out my ponytail. The silicon formula is a bit much to use on anything apart from my ends, but it’s a great bottle to have on hand to combat winter hair fuzz.

I was so happy to see a tester tube of H2O+ Facial Hydrating Treatment. Even though the brand is quite popular in the US, it’s not really that well known here in the UK. I first came across them when I was staying at Disney’s Floridian hotel a few years ago, where they use the brand for the in-room toiletries, and weirdly I picked up a few of these tester tubes at a Marks and Spencer beauty section a couple of weeks ago.

The Hydrating Treatment has a light gel texture which sinks effortlessly into skin. When my skin is feeling dry or irritated, I pop the tubes into the fridge for a few hours then apply. It feels wonderfully cooling and calming.

I absolutely loved this month! What did you think?
