October Glossybox... Dark Romance

Hi Guys!

So this month my post is a little late! My Glossybox is sent to home and not university so sadly I have to wait until I can come home to open my box but better late than never! 

This months box is themed on Dark Romance which is to get us into the mood for Halloween and the autumn season focusing on illuminated skin and berry lips! 

Going with the trend of berry lips the first item I picked up was the MeMeMe Cherub's Blush Cheek & Lip Tint. This is a dual purpose tint very similar to the benetint from benefit, but a fraction of the price! 
This is a full size product worth £5.50 for 12ml 

Next my attention drew to a familiar label; I have already received a Premae product in my first Glossybox and it fast became a staple in my routine, when I saw the bright yellow sticker I was filled with excitement! This month we have the Premae Multi-Vit Smoothie Serum its purpose is to soothe redness and hydrate combination skin whilst keeping it matte and shine-free! I have high hopes for this so I hope it delivers! 
This is a 20ml sample worth £9 
FULL SIZE: £22.50 for 50ml 

Then I came to another familiar name Monu, I haven't received any Monu yet so I was really happy to see that I had got some this month to try. Here we have the Monu Illuminating Primer it is designed to be paraben free, brighten the complexion and add instant sheen to enhance natural radiance, sounds brilliant doesn't it? I again have high hopes for this one! 
This is a 20ml Sample worth £9.98 
FULL SIZE: £24.95 for 50ml 

Next I reached for the thing I was actually the most excited for Katy Perry's Killer Queen Fragrance. I love receiving fragrance samples and after seeing this one advertised so much I was really excited to smell it. The top notes of the scent are Dark Plum, Wild Berry and Bergamot creating a "Floriental" fragrance. I sadly do not really like this scent and that disappointed me, it smells like a much older scent and just isn't for me.
I was also disappointed by the little vial it came in, holding a pathetic 1.5ml, which is about enough for 4 sprays (if your lucky). Its a shame considering last month Glossybox outdid themselves with their adorable 20ml mini bottle of Elizabeth Ardens new perfume Untold (which is an addictive scent!)  
This was a 1.5ml Sample worth £0.88
FULL SIZE: £29.50 for 50ml 

Lastly, we have a product that I've been wanting to try for quite awhile, Argan oil. This Argan oil is Eva Cosmetics Mystic Diamond Argonoil the idea behind it is to nourish and regenerate your hair giving volume and preventing frizz whilst the Diamond powder it is infused with gives your hair a super shine. I've yet to use this but I'm looking forward to treating my hair with it!
This is a 6ml Sample worth £1.36
FULL SIZE: £22.70 for 100ml

Overall I wasn't taken aback by this box, it wasn't awful but it certainly didn't match last months standard of box!

The total worth of this months box is £26.72 

For those that do not know, GlossyBox is a monthly subscription beauty box that sends luxe samples for £10 a month (+ P&P)  You can check it out here:

I hope you enjoyed today's post and I hope to be posting much more frequently from now on!



  1. I received exactly the same as you and agree I wasn't 'wow this is great box' either but I wasn't completely disappointed. I quite liked the Katy Perry fragrance though. Not long until November's box!
