December Glossybox

My December Glossybox arrived yesterday amistd a pile of cards and presents that are arriving daily now. (not presents for me of course, presents ive ordered for other people and still need to wrap) Its has been quite a good box i think.

It came in this lovely stylish silver box which i thought was nice as i was worrying it woud be a gaudy red and green thing.

This was the little book that came with it which i thought just looked quite pretty so id put a photo in.

I didnt want to show off this whole page encase i was reaking rules or something but you got a nice list of discound codes of things including Nuxe, Monu, Caudalie and HD Brows. 

Its Christmasssssss!!!!!!!!

Lemon by Mary Greenwell Eau de Parfum. Mary Greewell is a British makeup artish with a loyal following of celebrity clients. This is her second fragrance, her first being Plum which was released last year. This is a nice light fragrance which i think i might keep for summer as i like heavier scents during winter.  This retails for £90 quid for 100ml so its a nice wee addition.

Sleep True colour Lipstick Amped in a Matte finish. Now i really like this lipstick, its lovely and soft and creamy and the colour payoff is really great, its a very vibrant pink quite like a very bright MAC Rebel in the type of pink. I just dont like that its a sleek product, its not luxury or highend, infact its low budget drugstore. And its barely a full size lipstick. This retails for £4.99 in store.

Seche Nail Laquer 14ml in Lumiere. I love these polishes and the brand is great. These retail for £9.95 which basically pays for the box. I would be prasing glossybox to the heavens if not for one thing. The colour is dreadfull. Actually disgusting old fashioned yellow pearled pink thing. Even after 4 coats is was still translucent and icky. but ill stop complaining now.

Rituals Magic touch. This is a whipped body cream that is cherry blossom and rice milk. This smells lovely, like johnsons baby range with a slightly floraly smell. This 70ml version is £5.

SebaMed Antidry Night intensive cream. This is only a 10ml sample and i think they could have given a slightly bigger one. This is £9.99 for 50ml. Ive not tried this yet as i really don't need an anti-dry cream so i might stick this is someones stocking.

And Glossybox also popped in a little blusher of there own make in the shade glossy Rosewood but im not expecting too much from is after their lipstick.

And thats it for Glossygox this year. ...Or is it!!!!

Ive ordered their latest speciality box for my mum from christmas so ill get to see whats in that anyway hehe :D

Did you get anything else in your glossybox this month?
