Glossy Box December

I’ve been waiting for my box all week and today it’s finally here! I’ve seen so many other blog posts on it and already had in my head a little wish list of what I wanted in mine…. I think I ended up with the ‘middle of the road’ selection (I had my heart set on the FAB face cleanser [as seen on etcllymlrs]) But I am by no means disappointed….
 This month it came in a red box – ooooh festive!
As usual the list of goodies inside, telling you the price of the contents…
 The white paper inside wasn’t the same high quality of the black one they usually use, but who cares, it’s paper….
 There were TWO full size products; the Ritual Yogi Flow shower gel (retails at £6.50) and the Blink + Go High Definition Mascara (£14.99) 
 These were the best items as I needed more shower gel *which smells freaking AMAZING and mascara ha. I’ve been using the Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara lately which is on offer in Superdrug at the moment for £3.99, which is a bargain. It’s not the best mascara on the market, I usually use the bourjois clubbing mascara in extra black which is amazing, but the Rimmel one a good value for money alternative…. Anyway, conclusion to that; pleased with mascara in the box!
The Deborah Lippmann nail varnish ‘Razzle Dazzle’ is a lovely red shade with red glitter in it. However, I found I had to put 3 coats on and it’s still a bit translucent and even though it’s a glitter based polish I’ve found it to dry a bit matte. But it’s still such a nice shade and the full size retails for £14.

The other two products in the box were a sample size Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lipgloss in ‘Morocco’ (which I will probably lose within the space of a week)….
 & MeMeMe Seventh Heaven facebase in a cute little 10ml sample. I rarely bother using a base under my foundation because I use tinted moisturiser anyway, but I’ll give it a go.
Overall this box is well worth the price (£10 plus p+p) but the last few months I’ve been not completely impressed with the Glossy Box’s I’ve been recieving and STILL can’t decide whether to keep signed up to this one of Boudoir Privé (now Joliebox, expected this week, eee!) decisions decisions….
You can also reuse your delivery box for a home for stray cats…..

A quick EDIT, after trying the mememe seventh heaven cream I LOVE it, it smell amazing and gives your skin a lovely sheer appearance. I guess discoveries like this are what GlossyBox is all about.

    I was like that about my first boudoir prive box, it came over 2 weeks late! And the excitement wore off but then when it did come it was full of amazing stuff so it worked out well in the end!! Hope you get yours soon!
