December Glossybox

I was getting UBER impatient for my December Glossybox to arrive so when it did today I literally jumped for joy (you can see that in my Vlogmas Day 11 when it’s up here). I’m sure this is not the first review post you’re reading so I didn’t want to overload you with packaging pictures you’d seen everywhere already but I will say the glossy red box and snow white “paper sizzle” was a really nice, festive touch. But that’s not what you’re here for.. you want to see what I got…

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel (full size)
RRP £6.50

I’ve never tried anything from Rituals before but have heard of the brand. I love anything that makes me feel extra pampered in the bath or shower so was pleased to find this in my box and it smells lovely.

Blink + Go Hi Def Mascara (full size)
RRP £14.99
Promises sexy, flake free lashes in a waterproof formula. I was disappointed with this only because I mascaras generally don’t impress me. I have rubbish lashes to work with so don’t usually get a great effect but for a glossy box product this is a good one. Also.. saw some people got eyeshadow/blush duo which I would have preferred – should NEVER look at what other have got – serves me right!

Cargo Classic Lipgloss (sample size)
RRP £10.00
Again Cargo is a brand I’ve heard of but never tried as it’s at the drugstore but what I consider to be high priced for that market. I like the colour and the formula isn’t sticky which is always my first check but I don’t think I would repurchase. Great handbag/travel gloss though.

MeMeMe Seventh Heaven (sample size)
RRP £15.00
Funnily enough I was considering purchasing this just the other day but it was online and I really wanted to see it in person before shelling out £15 so I’m really pleased to have received this makeup base.

Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle (sample size)
RRP £16.00
First of all… AWESOME! This is what I’d consider to be a generous sample size. That’s what Glossybox is all about, right? “luxury samples”. I do have one Deborah Lippmann polish, “waking up in vegas”. The formula of that is a dream to apply but it chips super fast so although the glitter shades have had me lusting after them for some time they are expensive if they’re not going to last 24 hours. This for me is my favourite item from this months box (more on that at the end)

Deborah Lippmann – The Stripper To Go (sample size)
RRP £14.00 for 6 sachets
No matter how amazing this is there’s no way in the world I’d repurchase as £14.00 for 6 sachets but I am interested to see whether it’s any more effective at removing glitter polishes as that’s what Deborah Lippmann specialises in. Will be saving this to remove Razzle Dazzle.
**********
So as I said.. more on the polish. I thought it deserved some better pictures to really showcase the colour. It’s so festive.. like Santa in a bottle. I will absolutely be wearing this on Christmas Eve. It’s a really beautiful plumy, pinky red.. You can expect swatches a plenty when I get this bad boy on my nails!

For The much-hyped Christmas Edition GB did good, dontcha think? I’ve had a little nosey in to some others and I must say I think Emma from milkteef.com got my favourite combination of products I’ve seen thus far but tis not the season to be coveting thy neighbours glossybox so I shall be happy with my lot.
So go on then… what did you get in your box this month?

    This is my first ever glossy box after i caved in due to all the hype around the xmas box and i'm pleased with mine. My box had the same as yours except for the blink + go mascara, i got the blush and eyeshadow which i was pleased with. Also instead of the me me me i got a Bionova eye wrinkle treatment which i'm really pleased with. My faves are the deborah lipman glitter polish and the eye wrinkle treatment. Been wanting an eye cream for aaaages. Still loving your daily vlogs by the way! :0)

    I love the fact that the backdrop to your photos is your Christmas tree!!
    I wish I had gotten the mascara instead of the eyeshadow set tbh, as I'm quite set in what eyeshadow shades suit me, and these are not them.
    As for the nail polish? YUM!

    If you'd like the eyeshadow palette I could send you mine, no problems, it's not really my thing and I'd hate for it to go to waste! Rach
