I was definitely surprised to see a lot of make-up in the month's Glossybox, and I have to admit a little disappointed with the brand selection as I don't recognise Micabella or Helen E cosmetics, and I DO recognise Docteur Renaud from M&S which doesn't scream luxury to me.. unless we're talking about vanilla bean & raspberry panacottas...

Helen E cosmetics moisturising lipstick - 'cafe au lait' full size £8
As I said before, I don't know this brand and also I don't like the packaging. The dark orange colour of the bullet and hand swatch was a bit scary but once I applied it I actually really liked the colour on my skintone- so don't be too put off if you've got medium skin and you like nude lips.
MicaBella Cosmetics mineral blush sample- full size 9g £34.95
'terracotta' 0.8g sample
Mineral powder cosmetics are something I never go for, so in a way I don't mind getting them in beauty boxes because otherwise I wouldn't get to try them. Like most mineral powders I've tried this blush is very pigmented, it's also peach coloured like the lipstick.
ModelCo eyeshadow duo- full size (trio) £18
'Bronze Goddess' sample size 2 out of 3 shades.
This is what most excited me when I opened the box, which kind of faded when I swatched it and discovered the light shade is sheer & packed for of silver glitter. This doesn't accompany the gorgeous bronze shade well at all in my opinion.
DR Renaud Raspberry soft cream- full size 50ml £25
This is a rich cream for dry skin which suits me perfectly, it smells like raspberry yogurt so I'm keen to give it a try
Anatomicals You need a blooming shower! full size 300ml £5
150ml sample shower gel
I am really peeved that anatomicals shower gel now apparently contain SLS, I actually use the mango one now because it doesn't. So their decision to add the chemical has just annoyed me basically.
