Miss Glossybox September/October

I apologise for bombarding you with beauty boxes this month. This is my last and its my subscription to Miss Glossybox. This box is aimed at the younger generation and has a variety of affordable high street products inside. This one costs £7 bi monthly. So it works out £3.50 a month which I don't think is bad for 5 new or upcoming beauty products. 

The theme of this box is Autumn. The box and bag this month are yellow bordering on a mustard shade. 

What's in the box? 
Inside the outer box is the bag that your products come inside this is embossed with the Glossybox logo and changes colour each time you receive it. There really good durable bags that can be used for traveling or storage. There is also a product information card. 

Katy Perry Killer Queen Eau De Parfum
My sample unfortunately wasn't inside my bag. I just have the cardboard packaging. So I can't give you much information on the scent. I will update this once I receive the perfume from Glossybox. 
50ml retails at £29.50 this sample is 1.5ml £0.40 

JvG Soft touch Eyeliner 
The colour I received is Black. I am so happy to see that this is waterproof. Eyeliner is the only item in my make up bag that I insist to be waterproof. One of my pet hates is runny eyeliner. I did a swatch of this on my hand and it is super duper soft to apply. I gave it a good rub after a few seconds of drying and it didn't budge. Happy? I am. 
This is full size and retails for £6.95

Skinetica Anti Blemish Gel 
You can never have too many spot fighting treatments when you have blemished skin. The first thing that struck me is the fact it is called a gel. This is in no way shape or form a gel. Water is more solid than this product. But that's me being picky. This GEL haha sorry, is aimed to soothe, calm and banish skin blemishes. It states that you can see results in 2-3 days. It also claims to be a super toner and a great base for make -up. I shall let you know on this one. 
80ml is £6.99 

NYC in a minute quick dry nail polish
The shade I received is Times square and it is a vibrant red. I can't say I've ever tried NYC nail polish before truthfully due to the price. So I will be interested to see how this applies and wares. 
BONUS- this item isn't listed on the card but I also received an NYC show time nail art polish in 002 Silverism. 
Full size £1.79 

Beauty Uk Posh Pout
This came in shade corally correct (deep coral). I was a bit unsure about this on first impressions but actually when I had a closer look it isn't bad for the price. It has a slightly minty scent and the texture is lovely and soft when applying. You need to apply a few coats to get a solid colour but taking into consideration it is intended as a balm. It's pretty good. Can't wait to see how it wares. 
This is full size £2.99

Last but not least I received another bonus product which is a little compact mirror promoting Gabrielle Aplin's new single. I won't use this but its a nice touch. 

What do you think of this box? Is it worth the money?
