I was really surprised when this arrived at the door actually. I had only just received my November box because I signed up on Black Friday and wasn’t expecting this one so soon after
I think my favourite part of these beauty boxes so far is the absolutely gorgeous design, they are killing it! I don’t want to throw them away so I am trying to find uses for them now 🙂 The box theme is ‘Merry and Bright’ for Christmas
Ciaté London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner (full size)
Anything Ciaté and I am on board, I really love their stuff. I am actually trying out the Nyx Eyeliner marker, which looks super similar to this one, and I’m not loving it. It’ll be interesting to compare the two. They claim that even eyeliner novices can get the perfect flick with this ‘foolproof felt tip’
Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara
I am terrible with trying new mascaras, I tend to stick with my tried and trusted so I will have to force myself to try this out. This claims to ‘bring the drama’ with it’s kohl-pigmented formula that is supposed to volumise every lash
Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm
This hair balm looks interesting, I have nothing similar. Anything moisturising is always good in my books and I’m intrigued to see if I will see any difference using this. The product claims to be a ‘multi-tasking treat’ that moisturises, boosts shine and speeds up styling.
Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Matte Rescue
I am a huge fan of the original Porefessional primer, so I hope I like this too. I definitely wouldn’t purchase this for myself because I am not really into the matte face look, having dry skin. This claims to ‘keep unwanted oil at bay’ aswell as being a ‘shine-reducing, pore-minimising, gel’
Anatomicals Smoother Butts Love Coconuts body lotion
This stuff smells unbelieveable – I could actually smell it before I even opened the box! That usually means I wont be able to use it.. 😦 My skin is crazy sensitive and I think this will give me a rash being so perfumed. This claims to be ‘packed with vitamin E and fruit extracts’
Overall, I am pretty happy with this month’s box 🙂
