This month's Glossybox for me was the Unicorn Box with the other option being Mermaid themed. It contains five full-sized products, and there is also a chance to get your own exclusively designed unicorn or mermaid embroidered slogan sweatshirts, only costing £29.99. I love the design of this box and sets it aside from the general boxes each month, although I do find myself swayed towards the mermaid theme than unicorn but nonetheless its a pretty looking box.

The first product is the Makeup Revolution Mermaids vs Unicorns Eyeshadow Palette (£4.00). Having 12 different shades, from 'whimsically adventurous up to subtly charming', it gives you plenty of choices when deciding on which colour to go for. I've reviewed many Makeup Revolution palettes before so I have trust that this will perform the same as their other eyeshadows. The second item was the Creme to Powder Blush (£5.99) from Sleek Makeup. This blush is intensely pigmented but it still has a natural, dewy finish and I received Carnation out of the six shades. After blending this into your cheeks it will transform into a light powder to give your cheeks a subtle pop of colour that will last all day.

Cleaning brushes can be such a pain, especially when I've collected a large number over the past few years. This Brush Cleansing Egg (£7.99) by Kawaii Enterprise is designed to make cleaning your brushes easier than ever. You put two fingers inside the egg, apply some brush cleaner and swirl your brush over it to create a lather. Running the bristles down the deeper grooves will help to remove the foam and product build-up while realigning the brush hairs. Unfortunately, I'm not blessed with full and pigmented brows so I've always had to draw them on. Lord & Berry have their Magic Brow Perfect Eye Brow Pencil (£14.00) which is a highly pigmented brow pencil with a marbleised tip swirled with two complementary shades. I'm really fussy with my brows and found this shade a bit warm for me but I'll use it as an eye pencil instead.

The last item in the October Glossybox is the Cream Color (£19.50) from Bang Beauty. It's a multi-purpose cream that you can use on your lips, cheeks and eyes. This would be ideal as an eyeshadow, blush or highlighter so could be a perfect travel item or one to keep in a handbag, with the addition that it's vegan and cruelty-free. To apply, you can use either your fingers or a brush to blend in for a smooth and natural finish.

Glossybox has designed an ultimate beauty gift for Christmas with their limited edition box, which is their take on an advent calendar. It will come in a reusable vanity case and will be packed full of over 20 beauty products which will include 3 full-size makeup palettes. You can sign up to their mailing list here for an exclusive pre-sale for only £59.99. If you fancy seeing what other items Glossybox has to offer, you can see my previous month's posts.
