Hey everyone! Hope you're all having a good week so far, this is my first 5 day week at work in a few weeks so it's feeling like it's dragging a bit. Today I've got a review of the October Meebox* for you. This is my fourth review of the monthly subscription box, you can see all my previous reviews here. Each month comes with a new theme, and this months theme is Pumpkin Spice*, just in time for Halloween. Each months box costs £20 if you subscribe on a month to month basis, or you can subscribe for 3 months and it costs £18 a month. This might sound like a lot but you get so much value out of a box that it's well worth it. This months box includes:
- Crabtree & Evelyn - Clementine (RRP £6)
- Lauren B - Nude 01 (RRP £11)
- Leighton Denny - Venus Desire (RRP £12)
- Bundle Monster Giant Stamper & Stamping plate (RRP £12)
With a total value of £41 you're definitely getting a lot for your money. I also like the surprise element of it, and also that there's always at least one nail art look to create out of the products you receive. And, even with an extensive collection such as mine I've only ever encountered one duplicate shade to one I own in a Meebox, which isn't too bad going. This month they were all pretty much new brands to me, except for Leighton Denny. I was also intrigued (and a little intimidated) by the giant stamper from Bundle Monster which I ended up loving once I got the hang of it. I know my stamping skills aren't the best and I don't claim for them to be, but I wanted to give the plate a try nonetheless.
As the plate contains a busy mixture of patterns and phrases I decided to go for a combination of both with my first double stamping manicure. I'm not sure if it counts as double stamping if the design is different in the two colours? But I'll claim it as double stamping nonetheless. I also really like that the stamper comes with a lid so that I don't have to clean fluff off it next time I want to use it.
I used all the products except from Leighton Denny - Venus Desire as I couldn't make it work with the design I had in mind. However, it is a gorgeous shade for Autumn and I'm sure I'll find use for it elsewhere.
The box of goodies in all its glory. All the boxes come wonderfully packaged too, and I'm building up a collection of this gorgeous tissue paper, I've no idea what for but I can never bear to throw it away!
