Glossybox Halloween Edition

It is one of my favourite times of the year coming up and I just wish we celebrated it as much as they do in the USA - Halloween!  One day, I really hope to be in somewhere like Salem so I can see Halloween done properly.

However, just because we don't get all excited over pumpkins and ghouls doesn't mean we can't have fun and this month Glossybox queried whether your box would be a trick or a treat! Well as yoou can see, mine is most definitely a trick, but I am pleased to say nothing jumped out to give me a fright, there was nothing inside that was dead or decaying, in fact, quite the opposite, its a really good box this month!

As well as being a trick box, this month Glossybox is also Cruelty-Free and it is made up of 5 makeup products of which 4 of them are full-sized.

The first product within my box is the Luna by Luna Translucent Powder and it comes all the way from New Jersey.  This cruelty-free setting powder is designed to set your makeup and keep your skin looking smooth for hours.

The powder is really lightweight and so well milled that it doesn't even feel as though you have applied anything.  It comes with an accompanying powder-puff but I prefer to use one of my brushes or my beautyblender in its place.

Next, we have a stunner from MUA, whom I am really loving right now and it is the Luxe Bronze & Sculpt Contour Kit. Vegan Friendly as well as being Cruelty-Free, this 2-in-1 compact is just stunning.

Inside the gold compact, the powders are both really lightweight and easy to work with. With two different shades, one which has a hint of shimmer to highlight the areas of your gave which naturally catch the light and the other, a slightly darker shade being perfect for sculpting and defining your features.  I love that there is a mirror in the lid making this a perfect item for being on the go.

The third product is from ThisWorks and it is one I have used many times before and actually really like it.  The In Transit Camera Close Up is a bit of a multi-tasker and one of those products which is handy to have in your stash.

 It can be used as a mask, a moisturiser and even a primer.  Packed with a blend of repairing plant oils, Hyaluronic Acid and Starflower Oils as well a hint of caffeine, this product works to banish signs of fatigue, boost hydration and prep your skin.

I love a Sleek iDivine Palette and this is one I don't have in my stash.  Sleek is one of my favourite highstreet makeup brands and this Au Naturel palette just calls my name because it is an incredible variety of natural shades.

There are 4 shimmery eyeshadows, 2 with a satin finish and the rest of the palette is matte. On the top row, we have Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast and Taupe. Then on the bottom row, we have Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal and finally Noir. it is a really pretty palette and I am looking forward to giving these shades a try.

The final item in this months Glossybox Halloween Edition comes from Illamasqua and it is the Antimatter Lipstick in shade Energy. If you have never tried anything from Illamsqua then there are some amazing products that everyone needs to try.

The Antimatter lipstick range caters for everyone and has quite an extensive range of shades to choose from. Energy is best described as being a vibrant violet shade and it has a very creamy formula and is enriched with Vitamin E which gives it a balm like feel. I really like how these lipsticks feel on the lips as I have a few others from the range.

So, that is my Glossybox Halloween edition 'Trick' Box and I happen to think it is just brilliant.  Everything in this box will be used at some stage, including the lipstick for one or two Halloween Parties coming up.

  10. I have to admit I'm not a lover of halloween so I like the fact they've not done halloween releases/ themed products. Although I'm sure not everyone would always wear bright purple lips hahah! x
