Glossybox Beauty Advent Calendar Unboxing Days 11-20. If you’ve not yet seen days 1-10 then click – here – to see!
Day 11 – MUA
In box eleven, there was the MUA Cosmic Vixen palette which includes some lovely shades inside with a good mixture of matte and shimmer shades. In all honesty, I haven’t used MUA for a good three years maybe more but if I get along with this palette I will definitely be popping to one of their stands. MUA hold such lovely memories in my heart, as I used to go to my local superdrug after school and spend the leftovers of my dinner money and any work money on MUA products. They were the first brand I tried and the brand I wore non-stop whilst I got into doing makeup.
Day 12 – BELLAPIERRE
Day twelve brought the BellaPierre Kiss Proof Lip Finish, which is a clear gloss. I always go through clear glosses so fast as they always end up going that nasty nude shade when it mixes with your lipsticks so it’s lovely to have a fresh one ready for party season.
Day 13 – KARMAMEJU KONJAC SPONGE
I was so confused by this sponge, but I have been using it about a week now and honestly can’t reccomend it enough! 100% a new addition to my daily skincare routine, it makes my skin feel incredible! Already I know I will be repurchasing.
Day 14 – REFIBRA HAIRCARE RESTORING MASK
Another hair product in box 14, this one is a concentrated restoring mask. This product is targetted at damaged hair and has high nourishing power, and includes seaweed extracts. I am excited to give this a try because my hair is such a nightmare at the moment.
Day 15 – INC. REDIBLE JELLY SHOT
INC. redible is a brand I see a lot, but never try. The jelly shot lip quenchers are so hydrating on the lips and also the cute gold flexes running through the bullet give it that little bit of a more luxurious feel. However, mine snapped with first use at the base where the flower is, so it’s one to be careful with.
Day 16 – POPBEAUTY PURE PIGMENT
Again PopBeauty is a brand I haven’t heard of but I was blown away by this pigment! It is in the shade Metallic Copper which isn’t the shade you expect from the name but it has a copper reflex to it and just looks so stunning! I can’t wait to use it in an eye look but I’m saving it for a full face of first impressions so let me know below if you want to see that!
Day 17 – LUXIE BEAUTY TAPERED HIGHLIGHT BRUSH
Obsessed! They look so nice, bristles are super soft and the fact that it’s a highlight brush stole my heart that little bit more! Day 17 brought the 522 Tapered Highlighter brush – if you kn0w me you know I love my highlighters! If I still love it after a few washes, there might have to be a little brush splurge on the cards!
Day 18 – CRABTREE & EVELYN HANDCREAM
Handcream on these cold Winter days is an essential, this one is definitely a go to for me right now! When I first saw the scent I thought I wouldn’t be a huge fan but I do actually really like it.
Day 19 – LOLLIPOPS PARIS
This fluid glow feels really lovely from swatching, but shade wise it is far to dark for me so I am going to pass it onto someone who’ll get use out of it. I’d love to be able to tell you more about how well it lasts on the skin, etc… but can’t.
Day 20 – STEVE LAURANT BEAUTY
Now this product confused me, the box says Steve Laurant (as does their Instagram @) but the product itself says Steve Lavrant so who knows?! Either way the box is stunning, the packaging of the product itself looks a little cheap and the shade I personally wouldn’t wear but it is lovely. Again, I am going to give it to somebody who will get the use out of it, as I don’t want to hold any products in my collection I won’t wear and don’t love!
That is all for days 11-20, I can’t believe how fast this month is going! I will see you again super soon!
