GLOSSYBOX - October 2018: Trick or Treat

It's my favourite time of the month. GLOSSYBOX time! Every month I always look forward to my little delivery and this month's box is a little special as GLOSSYBOX have launched two special designs for their October editions. You'll receive either a Trick or Treat box to help you get Halloween ready, and I'm very excited to share my box with you all. All Trick and Treat boxes include five incredible beauty products and four of them are full sized from brands Illamasqua, MUA, Sleek Makeup and Luna Cosmetics so you will most definitely be in for a treat.

If you're new to Glossybox, it's a monthly subscription box that comes packed with both full sized products that cover all areas of beauty from skin care, hair, nails, makeup and everything else in between from brands we all love to those new discoveries that we wouldn't normally get to try if it wasn't for Glossybox. Each box costs £13.25 per month and contains contents that are always over the cost of the box. In a nutshell, you get a box full of goodies all for that monthly price.

For my October box I received the Treat Edition, and I must say that I am very impressed with the selection of products and their size. GLOSSY did well! So shall we take a peek into our Halloween themed treat edition?

Illamasqua. Antimatter Lipstick in Nebula. RRP | £20

Oh my goodness, yes this month each subscribers gets one of this lipsticks from Illamasque and I couldn't be more excited! It's such a little beauty. I absolutely love this lipstick. I was nervous that it would look a little over the top for me but I'd definitely feel comfortable enough to wear it during the day, not just on a night out. It lasted really well, even after washing my face! The perfect clutch bag accomplice for any Halloween party, this cruelty free lipstick will give you that extra edgy look that will suit every outfit. 

MUA Makeup Academy. Luxe Set & Reflect Finishing Kit. RRP | £5

This 2-in-1 compact is the perfect way to mattify your t-zone and top up your glow on the go. This gorgeous highlighter will help achieve an impact with it's iridescent look in one single movement. The highlight is beauuuuuutiful. You would not regret this one trust me. If you like a gold light glow but can build to an gorgeous glow then this is perfect and compact for everyday and will fit anywhere as it is a perfect size. This will suit olive, white and dark skin tones so much. Everyone likes a different look when it comes to a highligther some people like to build the highlight, which you can easily do with this kit, however if you are seeking a more subtle glow opposed to Edward Cullen, you'll be able to achieve this in one smooth swoop.

Luna by Luna Cosmetics. Translucent Powder. RRP | £17

I'm normally a pressed powder girl, until a recent discovery thanks to a previous GLOSSYBOX and now I'm beginning to actually keep my eyes peeled for them more and more. I was really happy to see this little powder in my GLOSSYBOX as I was looking for something new to try. Winning! I love this lightweight formula that soaks up excess oil while softening fine lines and hiding my big ole pores. It's a pretty shade, even for fair skin, which I have. The formula and pigmentation are good quality and there isn't too much fall out, which can be normal for a loose powder. But I love how the powder leaves my makeup in place and no oil gets through the powder.

This Works. In Transit Camera Close-Up. RRP | £35

A mask, moisturiser and primer in one, for enhanced skin, up close. Designed to be adaptable and supportive in every facet of your daily life, In Transit Camera Close Up Mask, Moisturiser & Primer is a portable skin pick-me-up with evens and brightens skin tone whilst plumping for a healthier effect instantaneously. Apply to clean skin, including eye area, and massage gently until absorbed. Skin will feel slightly dewy and perfectly prepped for make-up and at the moment I seriously need to help my makeup stay on my nose. Now normally I prefer a richer textured cream but while this is lighter in texture, once it's on, it feels nice and it definitely does what it says on the box. It's especially good when worn under makeup as it doesn't make your face feel claggy and caked in products.

Sleek Make Up. Eyeshadow Palette in Oh So Special. RRP | £8.99

This palette consists of 12 shades of super pigmented, long lasting, mineral based eye shadow, designed to suit all and contain pearlescent shades. The eye shadows are mostly neutral shades ranging from golds to browns, from creams to pink, with a couple of dark green and blue shades, in metallic and matte finishes. This is what makes this palette so versatile. It can be used to create natural looks that can be worn on any occasion, and the darker shades offer a beautiful touch of color and can be used to create some of the most perfect Halloween looks.
