|October 2014 Glossybox* (12.95)|
So, this month's Glossybox is undoubtedly eye catching. If you love pop art or just bright colours in general, I imagine that this will be a box you won't want to throw straight in the recycling immediately after opening. I've recently kicked the habit of holding on to every pretty pink box. They were beginning to take over my entire house and it turns out that I don't own enough little things to use them all for storage. However I might just have to try and find a use for this one, or at least save it to pass on to someone else.

The Rimmel BB Cream is much too dark for me, but I already know who I'll be passing it over to and the formula feels really nice. I liked the Yves Rocher perfume at first, but the scent it dries down to is a little too overwhelming for me but again, I know someone who will really like it. The So Susan mascara is something I've tried before and bizarrely it refuses dry on my lashes. It also has a tendency to explode out of the top of the tube if you push the wand in too quickly, which is something to watch out for. But I've also read some rave reviews, so it just goes to show how personal make up can be.
The Ciaté nail polish is a fabulous purple shade that feels very Halloween appropriate! I've never tried a lip scrub before so the Liplift Peel is quite intriguing and I'll be interested to see if I like it more than just using a toothbrush on my lips if they're looking a little worse for wear. The stand out product for me is the Nuxe Mask. Anything promising to soothe and hydrate in the colder months is worth a try and I like that it's one that doesn't have to be removed because in my experience, the ones you can massage in completely tend to be the ones I prefer.
