Glossybox – December 2015

This is my fourth Glossybox, and definitely the most exciting so far.  It has six products, instead of the usual five, and the box is so beautiful!  Created in collaboration with blogger ReallyRee, the Rose Gold Edit is designed with the party season in mind.  I have had this box for a few days (I am seriously behind with my blog posts this month…oops) so I have had a chance to try a couple of things.  So, let’s dive straight in!

So Susan Statement Skin Highlighter Pencil.  A lovely soft glimmering highlighter, this offering from So Susan looks lovely.  I absolutely love highlighters, and don’t feel complete unless I have made myself look like a glitter ball, so I am looking forward to giving this a go.

Essence Liquid Lipstick in Show Off.  I have a love/hate relationship with liquid lipsticks.  In that I want to love them, but always hate them.  This particular lipstick is very glossy and the colour is fab.  It didn’t really dry on me, so I would liken it more to a gloss than a lipstick.  I will persevere though, because I love the colour so much.

Collection Long Lasting Nail Effects in 32 Strawberry GoldI am so excited to try this gorgeous nail polish, it is such an unusual colour.  A purpley base with gold flecks, it would be perfect to add a pop of glittery colour for a Christmas party.  Now, if only I had a party to go to…..

Etre Belle Golden Skin Caviar Eye Roll On.  This clear gel is supposed to soothe and hydrate the delicate skin around the eyes.  I have used it a few times, and in all honesty didn’t notice any spectacular results, but it won’t hurt to keep using it.  Maybe it will need a little more time to wow me.

Darphin 8-Flower Nectar Oil CreamThis luxurious cream-oil hybrid claims to soothe and hydrate the skin, with its infusion of essences from 280 petals.  It all sounds very fancy and expensive (at £65 for 30ml it is way out of my league) and it does feel glorious on the skin.  The smell for me is really not nice initially. fortunately it does fade though.  I will enjoy it while it lasts; I can’t see me being able to part with £65 for a face cream any time soon.

Starskin Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Mask.  I know sheet masks are not for everyone, but I happen to love them.  I am already planning when I can relax with this hydrating mask.  I may well save it for after Christmas when I will be fat and tired, and I will wallow in the bath for an hour with a good book and do my best Michael Myers impression.

All in all this is an excellent box, and with a value of over £50 (by my – terrible – calculations) for only £10 plus P&P it is most definitely great value! See the Glossybox website for more details.
