Miss Glossybox - Sept/October 2013




Now I don't subscribe to glossybox anymore as the difference in quality between one person and the next was in my regard unfair. To have a palette in one box then give another a box full of sample well... That didn't sit well with me.
However I enjoyed my miss glossybox as it was only £10 incl postage every 2 months. Plus all the contents were the same for each subscriber. Now you may think why subscribe to a box aimed at a teen market. Well honestly I like the offerings of new makeup brands for a affordable price and what they offer.


So the September/October box 
Contents were -

BeautyUK - pout pencil 
NYC - nail polish 
Katy Perry's - killer queen perfume
Compact mirror with free album
Jessie's girl - kohl pencil
NYC - nail art 
Skinetica - blemish treatment 


Now I'm aware of skinetica as a brand and think it is good but maybe just as a point treatment and the sample is good for trial to see of it works.

I love the new Katy perry fragrance - Killer queen as it's just my sort of fruity lovely scent and reminds me a lot of my lady gaga and guerlain le petit noir robe.
Both have similar base notes, just I noticed this scent like lady gaga doesn't last a long time, but then I can smell hints  where its settled down. So I'm glad I received this perfume as I may invest in a bottle.

The BeautyUK was as always a quality affordable makeup product and brand I've come to love. The colour was certainly to my taste being a light pinky lavender, however some may not like the tinged this pout has. But compared to all the others swamping the market I think BeautyUK gives a good product with pigment and lasting colour. 


Now the only issues I have are minor and just because I've had beauty boxes a long time. I don't like nail polish at all especially red. I always get red and I was glad of the silver art polish to accompany this as it seemed like a way to get a little festive now. So not hugely impressed but they made the effort not to just fling a polish willy nilly again. 

Then the compact which was a great idea as had a album entailed of a new artist I'm assuming but being a rocker of a woman and well set in my ways. I gave this item to someone whom would appreciate it more.

The Jessie's girl pencil I'm going to do a review on as I'm not sure if this is the said and acclaimed Jessie's girl everyone's raving about in the blog world. (I'm kinda thinking this isn't but just a brand that's got the same name, different logo etc )
So I will get back to you with this item and what I find on it. 


All in all I really like the miss glossybox and it's always sold out for good reason. If you have a teen this is the perfect little set up to give them an opportunity to experience products that don't break the bank. For me its a glossybox with fairness which is what I think they should do with all the boxes. It's gotten no complaint on the site like I've seen the monthly box get and its a major reason in my eyes why this box sells out, yet they still have mountains of unsold monthly boxes to do special offers with. 
So yes I liked the contents and can't wait for the Christmas edition.
