You know, I’ve never ordered a subscription box in my entire life. On last Black Friday I had the opportunity to order my first Glossybox for only 6.5€ + free delivery. As it turned out, the content of the box was worth 62€. That’s a good offer, isn’t it?
I subscribed to 3 boxes for 3 months for a great price of 35€. Very soon we will take a look at two more boxes and calculate their contents. With that in mind, lets check what I got in the box to have an overview.
Contents of the December Glossybox
Venus Extra Smooth Sensitive Razor | was a big surprise for me, my current Venus razor is about 10 years old, it works fine, but it doesn’t look good anymore. So that means that I can put my old one away for the best time or if I forget this one somewhere in the hotel. Original price 10.99€
Pink Satin Shoelaces On|Y|Go | Honestly, I was a bit confused about the shoelaces in the Beauty Box. But lately I’ve changed my mind – what if I wanted to customise my white sneakers in the summer? It would be a little experiment for me, but I don’t remember ever buying myself a pair of shoelaces.
Manna Kadar Beauty Bloom Mascara | supposed to give an intense volume to the lashes by adding the fibers inside..This brand is new for me, but I already like that it is paraben-free and cruelty-free. But the mascara is not for free, its price is 26€.
Luvos Reinugungs-Maske (Cleansing Mask) | For me small sachet-masks are not a problem – they are easy to take with you on a trip and not to bring bask skincare bottles with you. For 1-2 applications this is just the perfect amount! Without synthetic colorants, fragrances and preservatives. Vegan.
Rodial Suede Lips Pencil Lipstick #Big Apple | I wanted to make a swatch on my hand and was so disappointed by the intensity and some glitter in it. In the hope that it might look different on my lips, I decided to try it and was glad that I did it after all. The “Big Apple” color looks pretty like warm berries with some spices, you get a very natural lip effect, something between matte lipstick and lip pencil. The glitter on your lips look gentle, they’re so tiny that you can hardly see them. In the end, I decided that this lipstick would be my winter lipstick. 29€
Oryza Beauty Nude Shimmer & Contour Eyeshadow | My opinion – inside is great, but the packaging doesn’t cost like like 22€. Light-weight plastic, I would say even “cheap”. If you don’t care about this “luxury feeling in your hand”, that will be no problem for you. I think it is very important to mention that Oryza Beauty says that their eyeshadow is 100% cruelty-free.
I was really impressed by the intensity of the swatches. They are very buttery are when you apply then with your finger, swatches look like super pigmented foils!
- Rose gold/silver metallic
- Copper/bronze metallic
- Golden metallic
- Mid-brown with pink undertones for contouring
Regular cost is 22€.
In conclusion I must say that the price of the box turned out to be 97 €! Not bad, given its price of 12 euros. I think that for such a price you can forgive some small disadvantages.
