{BEAUTY}: GLOSSYBOX “Bejeweled Edition”

So today I recieved the beautifully wrapped December Glossybox. It arrived in a lovely brown and pale pink box and inside there was a silver box.

The excitement of pulling the little bow apart and revealing what was hiding below the tissue paper was enough to make my day in itself. I love how much effort is put into this part of the service.  I also received a list of the products I was getting in my box. I like this idea as it gives you a description of each product and also some discount codes.

These are the products that I have received:

  • Moschino Pink Bouquet
  • Maria Galland Stick Protection Solarie 199
  • Cosline Concealer Nr. 965
  • Isadora Precision Mascara
  • Paul Mitchell Shampoo One
  • Extra: Glossybox Lashes

So, overall I would say I am disappointed with my first Glossybox.

I intend to give Glossybox two more months to redeem themselves. If they do not, I will sadly cancel my subscription. I was ever-so excited to see what they brought to the table, and I was dismayed by their lack of ANY make up or nail care items in their inaugural box.  I really adore the packaging and the prompt shipping was appreciated. If you wish to sign up for Glossybox, click here to sign up for next months.

Beauty Essentials

I thought it would be fun to do a post with some of my everyday beauty essentials. I’m definitely not a beauty guru. Here are just my magic tools that I use religiously to make myself look pretty.

Smashbox PhotoFinish Primer: It’s awesome and worth the purchase! My skin looks amazing with this on.

Benefit Erase Paste: This is most definitely the best concealer I have ever tried, I have definitely found my holy grail concealer.

Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow: As soon as I tried this, I fell in love! The coverage is fabulous and even covers my under eye circles enough for me to not always need concealer. Hello…it’s flawless time!

Cargo Suede Blush “Montebello”: This is my favourite blush. It does have shimmer and slightly peachy and it gives such a gorgeous glow. I’m in love.

MAC Studio Fix Powder: It’s a brilliant little compact powder and perfect for a quick fix. I’ve been using it for years.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer: This bronzer is by far the best I have ever used. It’s super perfect for contouring.

H&M Eyebrow Kit: It makes my brows look super natural and not to mention it is very very affordable!

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler: It holds my lashes so nicely and if you don’t have time to put on eye makeup, curling your eyelashes will make you look more awake.

Lancôme’s Hypnôse Drama Mascara: Umm.. WOW! LONG, defined, full, soft, no smudging, no flaking – in short, just about everything you could want from a great mascara.

MAC Vegas Volt Lipstick: It’s one of my favorite lipstick in my MAC collection.
