Miss Glossybox // September - October

It's time for another Miss Glossybox, already!? The bi-monthly arrival makes you realise how fast the year sure is flying by with the next box to be out in the festive holiday season, eeek!! Miss Glossybox welcomes Autumn with plenty of on trend affordable beauty products and not just for the aimed Teen market of course, this contents could all easily fit into your makeup bag on the go.
First up in the Autumn box we have the dreaded perfume sample, I'm really not a fan of companies including the sample as one of your products however this months is pretty incredible. Katy Perry recently launched Killer Queen, a playful 'floriental' fragrance with notes of dark plum, wild berry and bergamot though it's the red velvet flower and patchouli heart that make this fragrance so delicious. Killer Queen gently takes the fruity, summer fragrance fans into the deep of fall. Over the last week I've actually used up my sample and came across many mixed reviews in magazines and newspapers, some suggest it doesn't last very well, others hate the full size packaging...where I personally think it lasts well. MGB size - 1.5ml of EDP, 50ml - £29.50 & 100ml £38.50. 
Next we have an eyeliner from the JvG, makeup brand of the Netherlands and available from Monushop. Not so easily accessible for a majority of the MGB recipient's however at £6.95, soft, creamy and waterproof you can't fault. I'm always impressed with the shade selection MGB offer compared to other beauty boxes. You can never have too many black eyeliners (shade 10), especially those of you at school who have to limit the makeup.
I was over the moon to spot Skinetica's Anti-Blemish Gel in my little yellow bag of goodies. Despite it's small sample size compared to all others being Full Size this sample will last a fair while. Although marketed as an anti-blemish gel this also doubles as 'super toner' and makeup base depending on skin type. Having used a lot of spot treatments this makes it into my top three, it's impressive that even used a toner it hasn't dried out my skin and managed to beat my beastly spot. A Full Size 80ml retails for £9.99.
Included also were two polishes from NYC, I hadn't had much experience with the brand apart from a few glitter polishes but none from the 'In a NY Color Minute' range. As predicted the range is fast drying in 60 seconds - I'd say 2 minutes to avoid any smudging and your brush evenly dispenses the right amount of product. Included in MGB is shade 224, Times Square, a glossy, bright red that in my opinion will look great on ALL skin tones. A 9.7ml bottle retails for just £1.79 with no chipping for 4 days. The second NYC product to appear isn't listed on the MGB card - extras are always welcome especially in the form of nail art. Unlike the previous polish Show Time Nail Art, Nail Art Creation, Shade 002 - Silverism (what a mouthful) has a much thinner consistency though remains very pigmented for a metallic.
Our last beauty product comes from Beauty UK. I hadn't jumped onto the chubby stick dupe wagon so I'm pleasantly surprised that Beauty UK have created the impressive Posh Pout's retailing for just £2.99. Included in MGB was shade 4 in How Nude! - shades seem to have varied between boxes. If you too have taken a shine to the baby lips recently you'll love Posh Pouts for their lasting colour and hydrating, velvety formula's - they smell of mint too!

  1. Ooh nice shade for the beauty uk pencil - I got the plum one and I love it but would've been happy with that sort of shade too (new follower :) )

  2. I didn't know BeautyUK released their own chubby sticks type of thing! I love these lately but struggling to find a colour that suits..
    I always feel like perfume samples in boxes are a fob off, you can often get them for free. But there are a fair few items in the box so it's not too bad. Plus the box is worth more than the cost so it's a win!
