Now, onto the items!
Emite Make Up Lip & Cheek Tint – FULL SIZE! Value $19
This lip stain goes on sheer so you can control how much pigment you want. Here it is swatched:
This looked super bold in the tube but ended up being a very wearable color for me. And it had good staying power, too.
Decleor Hydrating Oil Serum – 5 ml Value $24
I fell in love with this oil serum thanks to the August Beauty Fix subscription box, (I’ve been rationing that sample), so I’m thrilled to have another one. (And good news – this sample is small, but you only need a few drops per application, so it actually lasts a while.)
This serum is made with 100% natural oils, and it feels decadent on my skin, and smells lovely, too. If you haven’t tried it yet, you are in for a treat!
Unani Il-luminate Milk Cleanser – FULL SIZE! Value $18
So many full-size items in this box! I love it! This creamy cleanser produces a lather (without sudsing) and was super gentle on my skin. It wasn’t really drying, but it left my skin super clean and ready for moisturizer! (It has a nice berry scent, too.)
OGX Beauty Strength + Body Bamboo Fiber-Full Thickening Root Booster – FULL SIZE! Value $8
This is my favorite discovery in the box! I love that you can use it on damp or dry hair. I could definitely tell a difference in the volume of my hair after using it, and I still could run my fingers through my hair. (Some volumizers create so much texture on your roots that becomes impossible.)
I liked the scent of this mask and it was easy to apply, too.
If you don’t like the sheet masks that are, for lack of a better word, slimy, you may like this one! It is a soaked cloth, instead of the more gel/liquid masks that come packed between two protective sheets.
The only downside for me about this mask is that you have to wear it for 20-30 minutes, and it is made with parabens.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $72. I’m really impressed with the October GlossyBox. The value is great, and even more importantly, there are lots of full-size items, and I really enjoyed everything in this box.
