Lipsticks to Lashes: GlossyBox November 2015 + Gold & Plum Make-Up Look

GlossyBox November 2015

Another month, another Glossybox! For some reason, despite looking forward to receiving these boxes at the beginning of every month, sometimes I am not too keen on writing about them. Frankly, not too sure if it’s something interesting for those who aren't subscribers. This month however, I thought I’d do something a little different and kick things up a bit. Given this box aims to take us from “Lipstick to Lashes”, it was more than appropriate for me to continue with my make-up tutorials here on the blog (see my first one here). I used the natural eyeshadow palette, the berry lipstick, fake eyelashes and primer (all contents of this month’s box) and created a fall ready look that is so easy to recreate and to wear right through this season. Keep reading to find out more!

GlossyBox November 2015

Royal Apothic Body Lotion | £14.50
We seem to get a lot of body lotions in these monthly boxes which may annoy some, but this little guy came at the right time for me. My skin suffers pretty badly during the winter being naturally dry, so body lotion must always be in stock on my bathroom shelf. Given this contains lactic acid which exfoliates the skin, allowing more moisture through to the new skin below; I am already on my way to smooth, hydrated and super soft skin.

Emite Diamond Heart Primer | £25.90
A tad pricey for a primer if you ask me, but I have noticed that this really does make up for a great base. It is extremely lightweight which makes prepping the skin super easy and fast (I hate those primers that take a lifetime to dry). I have found that it smooths my skin and pores rather well, not better than my all-time favourite POREfessional but not half bad either.

GlossyBox November 2015

MUA 12 Shade Undressed Eyeshadow Palette | £4
My first ever MUA product to try and I am impressed! Did I need a new palette? No. But I am glad they included this in because it makes for a great day-to-day product. I am stingy when it comes to using the good stuff, so instead of wasting my Nakeds on my work make-up, I will pick this up instead and be able to create both day and night looks thanks to the nude and metallic colours. The shades are pigmented and despite having a little fall-out, for the price tag one cannot complain.

Eylure Natural Lashes | £5
I recently spoke about how fake lashes are a nightmare to get right, so I am glad to report that these went on sooo easily! I actually managed to glue them first time round thanks my new DUO glue (which is awesome but stinks so bad!). Keep reading to see how they look on but in a nutshell: very natural looking. 

GlossyBox November 2015

Revlon Super Lustrous Black Cherry Lipstick | £7.99
Back in October we were asked to choose 1 out of 4 shades and I of course went with the darkest one, just because. Black Cherry is a lovely deep plum colour. The lipstick is infused with vitamin E and avocado oil which feels very hydrating and glides on easily. It isn't totally opaque, so a few coats were needed to achieve the look below and I find that the colour on the bullet is very deceiving but a nice colour to add to my make-up collection nonetheless. 

And here’s my make-up look created using all (bar the body lotion obvs) goodies above. On my face I started with the Emite primer, applied the L’oreal Infallible foundation followed by the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. Sealed all of it with my NYX Mattifying powder and contoured using my beloved (and very much used) Sleek Face Contour

GlossyBox November 2015

Eyes were created using the Mary Kay eyeshadow primer as a base followed by the MUA palette. On my crease I have shade Hazel (the only matte shade in the palette) blended all across; on my outer corners I applied Bronze Ore and Lion all over my lid. I finished off with Puff under my brow bone and the inner corners of the eyes to highlight. I lined my eyes with my favourite Collection gel liner, glued the Eylure lashes and finished off with a coat of the Roller Lash mascara by Benefit. I am also wearing the Dip Brow Pomade from ABH in Medium Brown which is a new favourite!

GlossyBox November 2015

And finally on my lips I have Black Cherry, this super gorgeous yet extremely hydrating lipstick from Revlon  which is my first one from the brand. It is patchy as you can see but it doesn't bother me too much as  it can be worn sheerly as a stain or fully for a more opaque look. Ah, and if you want to read more about all of these products, just make sure you click on the links for more detailed reviews I've done in the past here on the blog. 

So this is this month’s box and the look I came up with using its contents. Admittedly, not my favourite but Glossybox has really stepped their game these past few months and I can't wait to see what is yet to come! On other news, sadly I did not manage to get me a NARS Glossybox yesterday (I was too busy at work and it was sold out in 27 minutes!!!!) but am looking forward to the December one already. It is called Rose Gold Collector’s Edition and you will agree with me that it sounds pretty promising. Fingers crossed!

Thank you for reading beauties and let me know what you think below!

  15. You are gorgeous and the makeup too, well done! Oh my word, the Nars box was sold our in 27 minutes! I hope you get it for Christmas! I must say that reading about the primer, I will stay with the Porefessional, as you said it;'s better, and I loved the lipstick, even though we need some coats to reach that color. But I loved the color very very much!

  27. OH MY GOD that lipstick looks so perfect on you. I suck at lashes too, and it helps a lot to actually cut them in half or in thirds and glue them on in pieces like that. Agreed that Duo stinks though, literally.
