Once again I completely forgot about my Glossybox until it arrived on my doorstep. I was so excited to open it seeing as Glossybox December 2015 is the Rose Gold Edit, with all of the products being chosen by the beauty blogger Really Ree.
Before I get into what products I received, I just need to talk about the packaging. How beautiful is it?! I’m really into this whole rose gold trend at the moment and this box is definitely going to be reused on display as opposed to being hidden away in the back of my cupboard! The little Glossybox logo inside is shimmery and gold, and even the ribbon is rose gold! Rose gold heaven.
The products in this month were all about getting ready for the festive season as well as recovering from them after – my type of box! When I first opened the box, I was a little disappointed compared to previous first reactions, however my opinion did change as I used the products more and more. We did also get 6 items in this box instead of the usual 5, so that was a nice little Christmas treat!
The packaging of the calming Starskin face mask
I was quite excited about the Instant Surface Perfector by Hylamide
I found the Etre Bell
Firstly, the Essence Liquid Lipstick
Although I normally moan when Glossybox send me nail polish, I was so happy to receive this lovely Collection Nail Polish. I received the Long Lasting Nail Effects Cosmic Stars glitter nail polish – I needed some glitter for my Christmas nails! I used this in an ombre style glitter nail and the glitter built up really well, although I was disappointed with the drying time… 2 hours later and it still moved about and wasn’t completely solid… so maybe it isn’t best for more than one layer. Still though, it had such a lovely sparkle. Maybe I’ll even do a post about different Christmassy nail looks….keep an eye out!
Yet again So Susan have managed to create a beautifully packaged, beautiful highlighter. The photos definitely don’t do this product justice – it is so shimmery! It is so soft and the shape of the stick means it glides on your cheekbones or even brow bone so gently, giving just the right amount of highlight. This has definitely become my new favourite highlighter and I would highly recommend it to all!
Overall I am happy with this month’s Glossybox December 2015 box albeit as the Christmas box I did expect something a little more ‘wow’. The packaging and idea behind the box was brilliant, although being the Rose Gold edit I definitely expected everything inside to either be or be packaging in rose gold!
