October Glossybox; Trick or Treat?

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.  What is in the box?I received a complimentary "Treat" box, thanks to Glossybox.
