Glossy Box December 2016

We have entered the holiday season which means, Christmas parties, good eating, time with family and friends. But most importantly, it’s all about the gifts that’s coming to you and gifts you’re giving out. And while I love receiving gifts, there’s nothing better than when GLOSSYBOX sends me my monthly box. It’s the gift that truly keeps giving. All full size products. I was actually hopeing that this box would be more festive and season themed.

As always I look forward to seeing the collectable box and I didn’t get the gold box that was pictured on last month’s mini flyer. Nonetheless, it’s a very pretty box. This box has a party like theme to it, but not like a holiday feel or look. More on the glam & glitz.

Silver tissue paper and ribbon gives it a holiday feel. Sleek, clean and sophisticated look. 

I was very surprised to see that not everyone has the same things in their boxes. A friend of mines received perfume and a skin moisturizer, I didn’t. I wish glossybox would give everyone the same thing. Those under eye treatments with the diamonds are $400 to buy a box! Like seriously! I  loved these boxes because they opened up my eyes to new things and different colors and styles that I would never think to buy normally. But here lately it’s been so disappointing. It’s like repeats of things I got the month before or lotions that smelled old and expired. I feel like they aren’t even trying anymore. I was so looking forward to the Christmas box after hearing about last year’s box was so much fun. But this box was a huge disappointment all the way around. I think it’s so stupid that I pay the same as everybody else but only some people get the perfume and others didn’t. It’s just the fact that I pay the same and should be given the same.

Let’s take a look at this month products.


MDMflow Semi-Matte Lipstick,

My over all thoughts on this month box… This is my 4th box,  I really thought the December box would be ….more! I am excited for the highlighter and undereye treatment but frankly, I thought there would be more glam in this end of year box. I still have 4 months left on my subscription.

  1. I keep thinking about subscribing to this box but I’m just not sold yet. If I was shelling out this much monthly for a subscription, I would really want to get products I would 100% use. Sticking to Sephora and Birchbox for now 😬
