My You Beauty Discovery box for October 2014 – Review / Unboxing

Due to big mix ups, this month, I ended up having to pay for two boxes – I wasn’t thrilled with the shade of one of the items in my first box and would’ve been happy with a duplicate of the other so I ordered the same items for both boxes.

This month’s theme was ‘Handbag Heroes’ – A nice idea and I think the items up for offer fit that quite nicely.
Your eyes do not deceive you, there’s an Illamasqua lipstick and a Wild about Beauty eye shadow in there, yay. (kinda)
The two samples which everyone got, this month, were a small sample of Cowshed‘s ‘Anti-Ageing Perfecting Night Serum’ and a small bottle of ‘Gold Collagen’.
I was thrilled to see that Illamasqua lipsticks, from the ‘Glamore Nudes’ collection were an option for this month – I’ve got one already but was more than happy to get another.

I do love the quality of Illamasqua packaging, it feels so strong and sturdy, you know it’s higher end just by touching it. 

The shade I got was ‘Treat’ which looks like a really nice shade in the bullet. 

I really liked the peachy nude colour that it came out as on the swatch – Sadly it looks nothing like this on the lips. I thought I was safe to wear it because of how nice the swatch was the but moment it was applied it looked like concealer on my lips, absolutely gutted. And, of course, I got this shade in the second box, too, so if anyone’s looking to buy a new (less than list price), unboxed Illamasqua lipstick in ‘treat’ then please to let me know – It doesn’t suit me but it’ll suit others so I’m sure someone will want it!
I’ve had a few items from Wild About Beauty recently so I was more than happy to get another in this box. 

I got this lovely matte brown shade called ‘alana’ 
For a matte shade it’s got a really good amount of pigmentation and it is a really neutral brown, not too cool, not too warm. I got this shade, as my second item in my second box, too, but I have plans for that.

All in all a good box, as always looking forward to next months and Hoping that I can afford to get it!
