The October box is finally here! If you don’t want to know the contents then look away now…
Containing two full sized products (Leighton Denny Expert nails: £11 and Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in shade Moray: £13) my box actually featured nine goodies this month thanks to the inclusion of three 8ml perfume samples, a dinky black travel bag, plus three Demalogica Age Smart testers ranging in size from a tiny 1ml lip cream to a reasonably generous 15ml face masque. This month also sees the addition of QR codes, a great time saving tool for anyone looking to use their GlossyBox discounts via their mobile.
In general I think this selection has a neat balance of make up and skincare, something GlossyBox has failed to do well in the past. The Stila Eyeliner has been wearing confidently since I put it on this morning and from a quick swatch of the Leighton Denny Varnish I’ve struck lucky and received a tone that’s wonderfully flattering against my complexion.
From browsing reviews online it also seems everyone has been sent the same selection of goodies, which after the imbalances of the last few months is a terrific move for GlossyBox in terms of drowning down the noise of disgruntled customers.
What do you all think – has this month’s box been a hit or miss? Let me know in the comments below!
