December Glossybox Review

When I got a sneak peek at the December Glossybox, well, I just had to sign up again because the box looked so gorgeous.

I mean, first off the box design is just really beautiful. Such a pretty gold and white mistletoe design and Mistletoe Kisses in a lovely cursive font on the side of the box. I think this is definitely my favourite box design that they have done.

There were two options available for this month, Sugar or Spice. I chose Spice. I believe Sugar was more neutral colours and slightly different contents.

So, let’s take a closer look at the content of the December Glossybox, shall we!

December Glossybox 2016

MDM Flow  Semi Matte Lipstick in Vamp RRP £18.00 – Such a gorgeous colour and just about perfect for party season. This really makes a bold lip statement. I always prefer a bold lip and if anything down play the eyes.

Revlon Nail Enamel in Valentine RRP £6.49 – To match the lipstick is this equally gorgeous nail polish. In a deep red, this is supposed to be chip resistant for 10 days. I’ve not put it to the test so I don’t know how true that is. It’s a gorgeous deep red though.

Collection Cosmetics Define & Perfect Eyebrow Powder RRP £4.19 – With a bold lip you really need defined brows and this brow powder should help with that. It has tiny fibres in it that add instant volumes to brows. A fine tip also helps you create natural looking hair like strokes. I admit, I suck at doing my brows. My eyebrows are so dark, almost black and filling them in and shaping them never looks right, so I am hoping this might help.

Essence Light Up Your Face Luminizer RRP £3.00 – This trio of highlights is simply stunning.  With these three shades of highlighters you can easily go from a subtle glow for a daytime, to a dazzling glam glow for night. Very soft and pigmented, they apply like a dream to cheeks, bridge of nose and your cupids bow. Just gorgeous.

Lipcote RRP £3.99 – Seeing Lipcote in the December Glossybox brought back a heap of memories for me. I remember using this when I was a teenager. I used to love this stuff and it was brilliant at sealing lipstick so it wouldn’t budge. I honestly didn’t even realise it still existed. I shall definitely be trying this out and see if it is still as good as I recall it being.


Overall Thoughts About The December Glossybox

December Glossybox 2016

I first subscribed to Glossybox in December 2015 but did cancel a little while ago after I got really disappointed by their customer service and just a very poor birthday box.

I only signed up again for the December Glossybox and cancelled straight after. This box was just too lovely to miss out on though.

I really did love this box and it was great that they included 5 full size products too. All of the products were really good quality and definitely ones that I will use time and time again.

If Glossybox put out boxes of this quality every month, well, I might just be convinced to sign up again. For now though, I’m going to enjoy the December Glossybox and carry on trying out some other subscription boxes.
