December 'Special Edition' Glossybox 
Wishing us a GLOSSY Christmas!

- Earlier in the week I had my acrylic nails painted in OPI 'Big Apple Red'.

Since then I have been lusting over EVERYTHING bright red, shiny red and 'in-your-face' red!
As you all know I have been on a quest to have my hair bright red so today in order to match and follow suit my nails, toenails and lips all had a touch of Christmassy red! Woo!

This afternoon after a dismal drive home from college, I walked in to find a Glossybox sitting pretty on the kitchen worktop. I opened it to find exactly what my heart desired A BRIGHT RED GLOSSYBOX! I suddenly felt all christmassy and excited. I couldn't wait to open the box's glossy lid and see what was held inside.

I have to say that the contents are absolutely fantastic and right up my street. I have always been sceptical of the contents and it just shows that some months you love everything (i.e this month ha ha!) and some months you don't take a fancy to anything.

So what were the products tickling my pickle so much this month


- Rituals Foaming Shower Gel Full sized product!!! £6.50 /200ml
"This unique fomaing shower gel gently cleanses your skin and leaves it silky soft and smooth"


At first I mistook this for shaving gel whoops! I recieved the 'Yogi Flow' Indian Rose & Sweet Almond flavour in a hot pink, sexy bottle! The exotic smell of this product is gorgeous and I can't wait to get in the shower tonight and use it. I love lovely smelling products to use in the bath or shower and I am looking forward to lathering this beauty up under a hot shower!

- Deborah Lippmann Nail Varnish in 'Razzle Dazzle' & "The Stripper to go, for go-go girls" nail varnish mitts The full size nail varnish is £16 & the remover mits are 6 for £14
Party glitter nail colour with a sachet of the most amazing polish remover finger nail mitt."


How fabulous is this RED GLITTER!!!! need I say more colour? Amaze-balls! My sneaky mum had her eye on this for herself on New years eve! I can't wait to wear this. I love red and I love Christmassy glitter PERFECT! I am also interested to see how the mitts work as I never had much success with remover pads, I end up with a coloured smudged mess all over my fingers. Using these on the bright red I have on my nails currently will be interesting to see if it really is 'amazing'.

- Bionova Eye Wrinkle Treatment Full size product is £43 for 14.18g
- "Utilizes the technology based on Life Science Nanotechnology by treating the skin with the same ingredients in the same quantities and ratio naturally produced by a human body."


I know that I am not really at an age to test this effectivley but I love the concept! I shall be giving this to my mum to have a go with and see what she thinks.

-Cargo Cosmetics Classic Lip Gloss Full size product is £10
- Cargo's new lip hloss formulation! Perfect shades, great wear and high-shine without being sticky."


Sounds bloody perfect to me! The colour I have is 'Last Vegas' a gorgeous rose gold colour. I would pick this shade myself and I am looking forward to wearing it over my MAC 'Angel' Lipstick.

- Blink + Go Eyeshadow & Blush Palette Full Size product worth £14.95
Blink + Go eye makeup is the ultimate effect for eyes. Take your eye-style to a dizzy height with maximum colour and a perfect silk texture and finish."

I really need to get into wearing blushes. I am more of a bronzer girl so I am inteested to try these out. The eyeshadows are colours I would wear for statements eyes, they look highly pigmented and I will be wearing an eye combination with one of these shades for certain.
I love this months offering from Glossybox and has made me review the concept in a more positive light. That's what happens when they hit the nail on the head! I hope that next's months offerings tickle my fancy also as it is great when you find a high end product worth buying again!

Love, Holl 


  1. That eyeshadow and blush palette looks right in my wheelhouse

  2. Wish I'd of signed up for this box!!

  3. Do you get the glossy box everyone month? My gf was looking for a deborah lippman nail polish, the multi coloured sparkly is it?

  4. That nail varnish looks a lot like Revlon Facets of Fuchsia but with more intense glitter...
    Therefore I need it.
