If you don’t mind I’m going to pretend this post went up in December, but in my defense, this didn’t actually arrive until after Chrismas.
Enough of my excuses!
This month’s box theme is being party ready.
The bag is a champagne colored silk material with a black ribbon and the words Glam Stright on the front.
Now to what’s in the bag!
DRYBAR Triple Sec 3-in-2
I’m not a hundred percent sure how I’m supposed to use this. It says that it “revives lifeless strands, adds volume and body to your style, and extends you blowout”. So I’m thinking you use it like a dry shampoo, anyway, it smells like coconut. I will let you know how I get on with this at some point.
If you know how this is meant to be used let me know.
These shadows look absolutely gorgeous, I have yet to use them but from the swatches I did they look beautiful. So far I have only ever used Smashbox’s photoshop primer so I’m curious to see how more of their products perform.
This lipstick is very very bright red. I don’t wear red much so this won’t get much use, but I am interested to try Make Up Forever’s lipstick.
Unfortunately, I was rather unimpressed with this eyeliner, I love Clinique but this liner was not for me. This liner applies nicely and it has a very fine tip that is perfect for precision, but it runs. I used it one day and when I looked in the mirror later that evening I looked like a raccoon(not a good look for me).
I was excited to see a DR JART+ product in this months box, it has been a brand I have been interested in for a while but have yet to try. I haven’t tried this out yet but it looks really interesting. I will let you know what I think of it once I’ve tried it out.
I absolutely love this perfume but I got it before in my March box! I have to admit to being slightly annoyed, I do love the scent so it won’t go to waste but I thought the point was to try something new.
Besides that this perfume is lovely, it smells exactly like clementines. It is a very fresh scent with notes of clementine, mandarin, juniper berries, anise, basil, sandalwood, and Sichuan pepper.
Unfortunately, this wasn’t the best box to end 2017 with, but I am still looking forward to seeing what next month brings, and hopefully, it will have more products that I can use.
I often post little blips and thoughts of these products on Instagram and Insta Stories, so if you want you can follow me over there. @sparkleofgrace
