December Christmas Glossybox!

It may be because of my special supernatural powers but I knew December’s GlossyBox was going to be a good’un and I wasn’t disappointed.  I think this may be my favourite box to date!  I know a lot of girls will be happy with this because it includes not one, not two, but three items of makeup!

I received my box a few days early because I am a Glossybox ambassador so I’ve had a while to experiment and play around with the contents and I am super impressed and really happy with what I received.

Deborah Lippmann Mini Nail Varnish in Razzle Dazzle
– I couldn’t sum up Christmas in a nail varnish better.  This is a stunning dark red based nail varnish with specs of red glitter.  I popped this on as soon as I opened my box and fell in love.  It needs around three coats to look perfect, and I’d recommend wearing a topcoat if you want extra sparkle!
Also included with this polish is a Deborah Lippmann nail polish remover finger mitt which is apparently perfect for removing glitter nails.  I’m saving this to remove my Christmas day nails!

Blink + Go Eyeshadow and Blush Palette – I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this in the box, a full size eyeshadow and blush palette!  Not only that, but the quality of the powders in this palette are immense, so pigmented and gorgeous.  I could not have picked a more gorgeous range of colours if I had tried.  I love the smokey silvers, golden browns and I even adore the olive green shadow – a colour which I have never worn before.  This palette is designed perfectly for being on the go – it has a mirror in the lid, and you lift up the eye shadows to reveal the blushers and a blush/eye sponge brush.  I am looking forward to seeing the other colour variations that people got because I might have to invest in them!

Cargo Classic Mini Lip Gloss – A beautiful pink, shimmery lip gloss, and the most perfect size for carrying around daily. 
5

Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment – This eye cream comes beautifully packaged in small glass pot, inside a box and it feels very luxurious.  A full sized cream is worth £43 so it must be good!  This does smell like sour milk but feels really creamy and sinks into the skin well. 

Rituals Foaming Shower Gel – Another full size product!  I’ve never used a foaming shower gel before so this should be interesting.  I received the fragrance Yogi Flow – Indian Rose & Sweet Almond oil which smells delicious but which I have not yet used properly. 

What I think – I would like to say a massive thank you to GlossyBox for introducing me to the Blink + Go palette.  I would never normally have looked at it but because I’ve now used it I want to get my hands on more.  I think that this box is an amazing value for money, £12.95 for over (I’m guessing) £35 worth of products. 
This box has made me understand what the whole concept of GB is about – trying new products which you perhaps wouldn’t have normally got the chance to try, that you then may find you love. 

Have you signed up to this month’s GlossyBox?  Which product would you most like to try!?
