Glossybox October!

I got my second Glossy box!!! So excited!

It’s like a present every month.

Let’s see what I got in October’s Glossybox.

1. Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Thermafoliant

Skin Polish.

2. Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Power Masque

Face mask

3. Leighton Denny Expert Nails in Baydoll

4. Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyerliner in Moray

(a green mossy colour)

5. Robert Piguet

In Visa, Calypso and Fraces

I even got a little bonus from Glossy box. A cute little make up bag from Dermalogica with a little sample of their Renewal Lip Complex inside it!

The Information card is slightly bigger than last month’s. This could be due to all the QR codes that they have put on. They have a QR code next the information they put on each product which directs you to the product website. Quite handy if you discover you love the sample and want to order a full size one from the brand website.

Clinique's Chubby Stick

I have wanted to get this for a while now. I saw my friend putting it on after a dinner we had and was totally sucked in by the packaging. I just had to know what it was and where I could get it! I could never pass up on a lip product, especially one that looks so cute.

The Packaging: It will remind you of the crayons you used to use when you were little except that these only come in shades of different degrees of pink and red, maybe nudes if you are into that? If you twist the bottom more products shoots up from the top. I’m expecting that the point will disappear which could affect the cuteness or it could just look like a very blunt pencil?

The colour: From the shops I have visited there seems to be around eight colours to choose from. I purchase the ‘chunky cherry’ which seems to be quite popular as it was sold out everywhere I went. I finally got a hold of it in Harrods.

The price: Each cost £15.00 but have discovered recently that Boots are selling them for £14.00. You may need to run to a bigger Boots store as they are the only ones who usually stock Clinique

The Texture: The texture is very much like a Lip balm as it is after all a moisturising lip colour balm. When you first put it on it looks very glossy but does dry a little as you wear it longer. It could be the colour that I brought but I have had several people comment that it looks like a lip stain on the lips.

The smell: No smell that I can detect.

Extra bonus: Cute factor

Overall I think it was the packaging that attacted me first, the product is quite good and I might try some other colours
