Glossybox Review – December 2016
I have been so excited to see what all the various beauty boxes have in store for us this December. The last box before Christmas- surely they would pull out all the stops. Glossybox has done just that. I really thought they couldn’t get any better than what they have produced this year, but yet again, i was wowed.
This Mistletoe Kisses Box is everything i hoped it would be. Glossybox have really produced a beautiful box to end the year on. December, box 12, the official most beautiful beauty box!
This month sees 5 beauty treats, 4 of which are full size. Glossybox has offered the opportunity this month for subscribers to choose a shade of lipstick. Choose between a pale nude and a rich plum. Your box is then tailored around this choice with regards to shades- what a fantastic idea.
I received the beautiful Semi- Matte Lipstick in Vamp (Plum) meaning i received red nail varnish too. Such a pretty combo. Lipstick has never been out of fashion and this bold lip shade is no exception.
– Semi Matte Lipstick in Vamp
I was extremely excited to receive this shade. I have loads of various plum and nude lipsticks but this one just seems to be so rich. What i love most about this lipstick is that it looks beautiful on both blondes and brunettes. It takes a lot for this lipstick to smudge too which is a mega bonus as the Christmas party season is upon us and alcohol is flowing by the bottle full!
– Essence Light up your face Luminizer Palette
When i saw this in the box, i did let out a little ‘EEKK’ ( or actually a rather loud one)! This is not just any palette, this is THE palette for Christmas (in my opinion). This palette literally shimmers and really illuminates the skin. I know you probably have a palette you believe already does this, but this one really makes you glow! I just want to cover my whole face in it.
– Collection Cosmetics Define & Perfect Eyebrow Powder
Although this product looks like an eyeliner before you un-do it i can assure you it is not. It is not even a fibre brow filler or a mascara gel for brows. It is a powder. What is great about this product is the more you apply the thicker and dark it gets meaning it is pretty much impossible to get your brows wrong with this beaut.
– Lipcote Lipcote
Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness, Oh my goodness!!!! What if i told you that you can get a product that makes lipstick STAY ON YOUR LIPS! That’s right- i mean not budging! Well… here it is! (ok breathe!) How does this work i hear you say? Well, it goes hand in hand with the lipstick you receive this month. Simply apply your Lipstick and then dab with a tissue. Evenly brush this liquid onto your lips with a lip brush, but remember to do it quickly as it is fast to dry, then keep your lips apart/ mouth open whilst the product sets, then, Voila, you have a non budge lipstick! A product we have all been waiting for! I am in love!
– Revlon Nail enamel in Valentine
There is not a lot that can be said about a red nail polish. Revlon is obviously a good quality brand and this red is a real Christmas red. Perfect for this time of year.
This box is the best Christmas box that Glossybox has ever produced. I love love love every single one of the products, they are such good quality and the box is great value for money. It was been curated so well and i am super super impressed this month to say the least. So far i think my favourite product (ah this is a hard choice) is probably the Lipcote as it works with any lipstick and will make all your lipsticks last soooo much longer. Although, a very close second place, is without a shadow the palette (no pun intended, honest).
Four out of the five products are full size meaning this box is worth just over £62 and will cost you between £8.50 – £10.00 plus (P&P) depending what subscription choice you have or choose.
If you wish to subscribe and receive this beaut of a box in time for Christmas simply click here! But remember when you sign up, use promo code Sugar (nude) or Spice (plum) to select the shade of your lipstick. If you do not one will be selected at random for you.
