The Rose Gold Glossybox with Really Ree

Hi Guys,

I dont think I've ever been so excited over packaging in my entire life, the December Glossybox is just the box of dreams. Not only is it Rose Gold, it's also a collaboration this month with the lovely blogger Really Ree. It's filled with lots of Ree's much loved favourites and a few extra goodies to try too.
It's theme is all about getting prepped and prepared for the party season and you'll be all ready to celebrate all the festivities!
You actually get six products this month instead of five, as well as four of the six being full-size products too. The overall value of the box comes to £65.65 which is not bad at all. It's such a varied selection of skin care, makeup and a little nail treat too. 
Collection Long Lasting Nail Polish in Cosmic Stars - £2.99 for 8ml
Collection polishes aren't necessarily ones I would think to go out and buy, I'm a tad too attached to my Illamasqua ones. But actually the offerings that collection have for the price are great. I love the name of this one as well as it really reminds me of a night sky and all the stars, it's perfectly sparkly for Christmas and I think it would be a lovely shade for the New Year too. 

Etre Belle Golden Skin Caviar Roll On - £30.66 for 10ml
Eye creams are so easily forgotten about and having a roll on just seems to make that step that bit quicker and easier to remember. Especially when you can put them in the fridge and the feel 10x more amazing, because the rollerball tip is nice and cool. Unfortunately though I have a bit of a reaction to anything gold, so although I think the fact it says Golden in it doesn't mean there actually is a gold element to it. I'm going to just avoid it for a bit until I can check the ingredients! 

So Susan Statement Skin Highlighter Pencil in Starlight - £15 for 1.8g
So Susan is definitely a Glossybox favourite, it appears quite a lot in the boxes and its a pleasure to see them in every box as they are kinda unknown and do have a great selection of products. The pencil itself glides onto the skin effortlessly, it has a feeling thats almost like velvet and leaves such a pretty sheen, its subtle but gives a natural glow to the skin. It does exactly what it says on the stick, it really does give you statement skin.

Hylamide Pore Delete - £18 for 30ml
I had never heard of Hylamide before but they actually have such an interesting range of products, I think its possibly the almost lab like design of their packaging that draws me in. Pore Delete itself is used to reduce the look of pores instantly, it can't really be used to reduce the look of them in the long run. But it will smooth the skin out and make them appear smaller, which is great for applying your makeup over and then you're getting a more seamless finish.

Essence Liquid Lipstick in Show off - £2.50 for 4ml
I will admit I was a little confused when applying this, as when I think liquid Lipstick, I do tend to think of a highly pigmented lipgloss that turns into a matte product. Although this is a really highly pigmented gloss, thats where it ends as it doesn't go matte. It stays glossy, but not sticky and is really comfortable to wear, it feels moisturising on and In the end I actually quite like this kind of Liquid Lipstick. Though I would like to see Essence come out with a formula that does dry matte too, as they have a winner in this one.

Starskin Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Mask - £8.50 for 30ml
This month the added extra is this mask, although there are different versions in each box. I got the Behind the Scenes mask, which is calming and breakout busting. This is another packaging love, as I think it's so clever to have it like a film title reel, to emphasise that name. I also couldn't believe it when I saw that one mask has one whole bottle of serum infused into it, that's one intense boost of hydration in there too!

Overall I really love this month's box, from the gorgeous packaging to the festive products, ready to get you pampered and sparkly for the Christmas period. I think it's such a great selection this month and its always nice to get an added treat. Ree has done a fantastic job coming up with this one and I hope this is the start of more blogger related collaborations too.
