December 2012 Glossybox

  'December Glossybox 2012'

Well isn't that just a sight for sore eyes? My,my,my Glossybox you just keep getting better and better don't you? To be quite honest, as I said in my video, the box was enough to throw me even before I'd opened it up to reveal this beautiful array of products!! I just think they are the best beauty subscription box out there! Before they used to be okay, and the products were nice but oh good god, now they're just showing off really...

Rituals Magic Touch Body Cream in Cherry Blossom and Rice Milk
Well.. again with this whole 'whipped' theme, I think it just attracts me, like my love for Soap and Glory's 'Whipped Clean', now don't go getting any ideas, but I think it just makes products sound so lovely and light and fluffy. The consistency of this is just beautiful, and I don't know why but it just seems to apply so much nicer than any creams of the 'un-whipped' kind. I tried a little on my arm, and it felt and smelt amazing, and my dad seemed to agree also, which is a massive compliment as he usually hates smellies and fiffy-faffy products. He likes things to just do the job, plain and simple. So coming from him and myself, Rituals get a big thumbs up!

Seche Nail Lacquer in 'Aristocrat'
I'm torn, I like this colour a lot, although I haven't yet swatched it, but I don't think it would be a colour that would call out to me if I was standing in Boots perusing the nail polishes. But I'm glad I got this colour, I'm always open to try something new. I think purple is the colour I've got least in in my humungous nail polish collection, I have lilacs and deep purples but I've never owned or even contemplated owning something this colour. The more I look at it though, the more I really start to like it. This is also the first Seche nail varnish I've owned, strangely enough I don't own the infamous Seche Vite, which is strange because I thought I would have owned it by now, as I'm a sucker for overhyped products! But fingers crossed they're nail varnishes are as good as the Seche Vite, so I'm very, very excited about this! 

Milk_Shake Conditioning Whipped Cream
Oh Glossybox you shouldn't have! Another whipped product! It's like they're inside my head. As soon as this was in my hands it was love. I gave it a shake and it came out all whipped and creamy, and it smells edible. It smells like strawberry and vanilla milkshake, hence the name I'm guessing. It applied beautifully in my hair, which was another bonus, and on top of that, it made my hair feel amazingly soft. It claims to keep moisture balance and preserves hair colour integrity, I haven't used it long enough to say that it does that, but that's what's in store for my hair, then I'm on board!

Sleek i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 Palette
I was just gobsmacked that they sent us a full sleek palette! Okay, I know that Sleek is very affordable and is a drugstore brand but I'd say it's the one of the highest drugstore brands we have, but still! There are colours in here that I don't really like and probably won't use, like Orbit, Highness and Fern. Don't get me wrong they are lovely colours, but I like to stick to my safety neutral blanket. As with any Sleek palette, they are amazingly pigmented. Here are some swatches I did earlier:

From left to right : Orbit, Ink, Highness, Noir, Dune, Pillow Talk

From left to right: Thunder, Maple, Flesh, Paper Bag, Villan, Fern 

See how nicely pigmented they are? I mean Dune and Flesh don't really show up, but that's because of their colour and not their pigmentation. Normally I'm a shimmer kind of gal, but I'm sure I have enough room in my make up back for these beauties.

Anatomicals Strawberry Milkshake Fruity Lip Gloss
As I said in my video, I'm really not a lip gloss girl, never really have been. So there isn't much I can say about this other than how delicious it smells. Another edible one I'm thinking. But who knows, I might try it one day and really like it, as for right this minute, I'm not in any rush.

Glossybox Blusher in 'Glossy Rose Wood'
I think this blusher is so, so lovely! It's so subtle and I just love it to pieces. Beautifully pigmented, and pretty long lasting surprisingly! It just gives such a nice flush to the cheeks and I think it really compliments my skin tone, actually saying that, I think it would compliment a lot of skin tones!

Overall I think it was a wonderful box, and my loyalties lie with Glossybox for yet another month! Can't wait for next months box now!
