Glossybox September 2013 | The London Edition




Hey girlie's!!!

So its that time again... Glossybox time!!! This month's box has a very iconic  'London' theme. The box is so snazzy with its Union Jack design and I'm glad to see they've finally given the A3 fold out paper information booklet the boot and replaced it with a smaller information card instead, they've also thrown in a glossy GB Mag for good measure too.

If I'm honest i really wasn't happy with the contense of last month's box, also to add to my disappointment my eye lash curlers arrived broken too which wasn't great. But this month Glossybox have made a winner in my eyes, i love it (big smiles). Anyway onto what's inside my box this month....

Eylure Pre-glued Lashes


I'm extremely happy too see these lashes in my box, i always struggle with applying false lashes and to be honest waiting for the glue to go tacky is just annoying and i never know when the right time to apply them is, so the fact these are pre glued and ready to go is great for me. The lashes are nice and natural looking too which is a bonus, i dont like it when they look really obvious that they are fake. This is a full set and retails for £5.06.

Toni & Guy HairMeetWardrobe Classic Shine & Gloss Serum 30ml


I'm looking forward to trying this serum out, i always like receiving hair products to try. This classic shine gloss serum controls frizz and gives a lightweight shine to your locks, all you have to do is add 1 or 2 pumps of the serum to the palms of your hands and work through the lengths of your blow dried hair. It also comes in the Limited Edition Lulu packaging, how fancy. This is the full size product and retails for £7.19.

Dr Lipp Original Nipple Balm For Lips 3ml


Another product I'm happy too see in my box, although i cant help but crease up at the fact its called a nipple balm he he. I tried this pretty much as soon as i saw it, it's a very thick, 100% natural , multi purpose balm, It helps heal chapped lips, burns, eczema, extreme dry skin patches and the list seems to go on and on. I'm going to purchase the full size of this as its just so versatile and i know ill use it alot. The full size of this retails for £11.50 for 15ml.

Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Onyx Eye Liner 3ml




This eyeliner looks right up my street, its a felt tip liner making it super easy to apply and create flicks/wings and the pigmentation is amazing!!! Be A Bombshell Cosmetics also claim that their Onyx liner will last you throughout your entire day no matter how hectic is it, so I'm really expecting good things from this little beauty. This is the full size and retails for around £8.92.

Elizabeth Arden Untold 5ml



Usually i cant stand perfume samples in beauty boxes however... This is alot larger than the usual sample size we get so that makes it a little better for me, also the little bottle its just so cute and great to pop in your handbag to use on the go. The scent itself i actually really like, its quite sweet but theres definitely a hint of floral in there, its a really sophisticated scent too. The full size of 50ml is £48 or you can get 100ml for £69. 

Overall i am super happy with what i got in this month's box, i know I'm gonna use every single thing in this box for sure.

What do you think of this month's box???

  1. I really really loved the eyeliner - it's incredibly soft and the with that pointed tip it's possible to draw really thin lines. I've only tested it twice but it's amazing, and will probably buy it when I've finished it :o). Xx
