October Glossybox; Trick or Treat?

Use code “Halloween” to save money off your first box
This month Glossybox had a really fun theme, they came up with two boxes (Treat or Trick) inspired by Halloween. You receive the Trick or a Treat, both boxes are packed with amazing makeup items with a combined worth of over £65. Both of the boxes are completely cruelty-free and are packed with 4 full sized makeup item and 1 skincare item. 
I love the fun design and spin on this special edition boxes. As we know, Halloween inspires loads of creativity and it is evident in this months edition. 
How cheeky is the cover box?

What is in the box?

I received a complimentary “Treat” box, thanks to Glossybox. You get a card that details the retail cost of all the items and a description of what they are and what they are meant for. It also reveals a cheeky little hint of what to expect in the November Glossybox…. drum roll, please! A Huda Beauty liquid lipstick worth £18. If that doesn’t peak your interest then I don’t know what will. 
In this box, you get a full-sized eyeshadow palette, Luxe highlighter compact, a luxury lipstick, face powder, and one skin care item all for £10 (postage not included).

Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick- Nebula; Glossybox October box
This lipstick from Illasmasqua costs £20 (that is literally double your box by the way), it is cruelty-free and boasts of a semi-matte finish. We all know Illamasqua does not disappoint us when it comes to quality so be rest assured that this lipstick will turn heads. I am not a full pink lipstick lover but I have to admire how gorgeous this shade is and how luxurious looking Illasmasqua lipsticks are. 
Luna by Luna Cosmetics Loose Translucent Powder; Glossybox October Box
This is the Luna by Luna loose translucent powder from Luna Cosmetics. It is a cruelty-free setting powder which boasts to set and keep makeup looking smooth for hours at a time. It is a finely mild formula which boats of absorbing excess oils, soften fine lines and hides pores. It basically sounds like an oily girls setting powder dream. This powder retails for £17.
Sleek Makeup “Oh So Special” eyeshadow palette; Glossybox October Box
This is the infamous “Oh So Special” eyeshadow palette from Sleek Cosmetics. I have done several looks using this palette and I can easily say that it is a must-have if you haven’t picked her up yet. This palette is cruelty-free and has 12 really pigmented, long-lasting, mineral-based shades which will allow you to create a variety of daytime, night time and every other time looks. This palette retails for £8.99 and is worth every penny. 
MUA Makeup Academy Luxe Strobe and Glow Highlighter Kit; Glossybox October Box
I am positively obsessed with the look and feel of this compact. This is the Luxe Strobe and Glow Highlighter Kit in Pink Luster from Makeup Academy Cosmetics. This is a vegan-friendly and cruelty-free strobe and highlighting kit. The 2 in 1 compact comes with a mirror a cream and powder highlighter which gives a radiating look. It retails for just £5 and is a must-have for every glow Queen. 

Last but not the least, no makeup look would be snatched without a great base. This is the In Transit Camera Close-up moisturizer and primer in one from This works. It is a cruelty-free mask, it contains plant oils, hyaluronic acid, argan oil, starflower oil and a bit of caffeine. This product will help to minimize the look of fatigue and it will boost hydration in your skin. Trust me, I pray for this product to make an appearance in any of my beauty boxes because she works.

I have combination to oily skin and in the cooler months I use it as my primer and my makeup lasts hours on end. This product would be good for dry skin across all seasons. This product retails for £35 for the full-size version and £17 for this deluxe mini.

Are you excited for what the November box will bring? I know I am very excited about that Huda Beauty liquid lipstick, I have never tried Huda’s lipsticks and this would be a great way to get to try her lipsticks without forking out the coins.
