Glossybox – October 2017: Mermaid

Glossybox subscribers will receive either a special limited edition Mermaid or Unicorn box this month, and both are full of ‘makeup heroes‘, so this is a real treat for you all makeup fans out there! I received the Mermaid box which has a gorgeous, dreamy turquoise-meets-purple gradient design, so I couldn’t wait to see what was inside as soon as it arrived.

I was surprised to find five full-size makeup products this time around, so let’s take a closer look at what’s inside October’s Glossybox:-

Makeup Revolution Mermaids vs Unicorns Eyeshadow Palette (RRP £4)

I love makeup palettes and this budget-friendly one from Makeup Revolution is a beauty! Their enchantingly titled ‘Mermaids vs Unicorns’ eyeshadow palette has twelve shades which includes greens, purples, blues and pinks. All of the colours are shimmery and most are nicely pigmented too. This is a great palette to experiment with and perfect for some fun Halloween looks later this month!

Sleek Creme to Powder Blush in Gerbera (RRP £5.99)

Inside your Glossybox, you’ll find one of six shades of this lovely creme to powder blush from Sleek and I received the shade in Gerbera. I’ve tried it a couple of times so far and really like how easy it is to blend (pro tip – a little goes a long way!). It looks quite scary and bright in the pan, but when applied lightly, you can get a really pretty light coral flush that brightens up your whole complexion within seconds. A gorgeous new blush for my collection!

Kawaii Enterprise Brush Cleansing Egg (RRP £7.99)

This little ‘cleansing egg’ is a silicone based tool that you can slip onto your fingers and use to clean your makeup brushes with. Simply apply your usual makeup brush cleanser to the dirty brush and then gently swirl the brush over the ridges of the egg for a deep clean. I already have a similar product that I use with my brushes, but I’ve given this to my sister who loves how easy it is to use.

Lord & Berry Magic Brow Perfect Eye Brow Pencil in Brunette (RRP £14)

Next up, I found an eyebrow pencil from Lord & Berry which features an interesting marbelised tip which is swirled with two complementary shades of brown (light and dark) to flatter all brunette colourings. This works by mimicking the colour variation that’s naturally found in brows – clever!

Bang Beauty Cream Colour (RRP £19.50)

The last product that I found was a multi-purpose Cream Colour pot from a brand that I haven’t heard of before called Bang Beauty. I received the shade Dolce Pink which can be used on cheeks and lips for a pretty pop of colour, and I was pleased to see that this formula is also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. It applies smoothly and blends nicely – a lovely find.

Our score: 9.0/ 10

If you're a makeup fan, you'll love this month's makeup-packed Glossybox! My personal faves were the Makeup Revolution palette and the Sleek blush.
