December GlossyBox

I have fallen behind!  I've had this box for about 2 weeks now and I'm not 100% sure how I feel about it. Allow me to explain by showing you what was in the box.

Up first, a mini bottle of TRESemme Dry Shampoo

I have a full size one that I barely used. Not quite sure that I like it.

Next is Avon SuperShock Vivid liquid eye shadow
I like the colour, the staying power of it on my hand isn't bad either. Trying to stay out of all the drama surrounding the Avon products, I don't like the fact that Glossy included an item that you can't really purchase anymore in Canada. If it was a high end product that you couldn't get here, it'd be better. But a product from Avon? Not a big fan of this.

Aveeno Positively Ageless Day SPF 30

It's a nice full size product. I've never tried Aveeno before and I like that it has SPF 30 in it. I'm going to hold off on using this until the summer .

TRESemme Split Remedy & GlossyBox Lashes

More split remedy!? I've probably got about 7 of these by now. Haven't tried them yet. I'm waiting until I run out of my current shampoo & conditioner.
The lashes are very thick. Not something I'd pick up myself. I do look forward to trying these though.

Nobia Earrings
These are cheap. The colour is nice, but everything about it is cheap. The post one of of them still had a little piece of extra metal on it, so it wasn't smooth to the touch. The website says stainless steel for part of it, I thought aluminum, the man said plastic. lol.  That's how cheap these things feel. Would NEVER pay $14 for them. I wont even put them on.

And if you remember the first picture of the opened box, you may have noticed that there was also a redish nail polish and another Aveeno product. Unfortunately the Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer was too dark for me (light - medium).  If anything, I'm closer to fair than medium. The nail polish was Revlon Matte Suede in Fire Fox. The colour looked gorgeous, but I not one I would wear (I have a few reds already. Both of these items were given away at a swap.

Approximate total: $$69.55  (that does not include the Avon shadow or the TRESemme packet)

So there you have it. The box was full, contained several full size items (6 out of 8) and a nice variety. But I still feel just "meh" about this box.  We'll see what January's box has in store as their website states:
  • In January 2013, Embark on an Exploration of International Beauty

  • At Least 5 Globally-Inspired Deluxe Beauty Products Delivered to Your Door

  • Detailed How-To Guides for Mastering Looks from Around the World
Intriguing ...

Just a head's up, I am in the process of putting together a giveaway! Prize & Date to be announced in the next few weeks. Spread the love.
