SPOILER ALERT: Glossybox USA December 2014 – Looks like it’s a good one!

Glossybox USA December 2014

Want to know what you will find in the Glossybox USA December 2014 box? Read on! (Also, how ADORABLE is that box??)

I have to say that I’m not the best Glossybox subscriber: I only spring for boxes that have a lot of good-looking spoilers available when I know for sure that it will be worth it. So I was pretty interested to see what the December 2014 Glossybox spoilers would bring, and it looks like this month it’s actually going to be an awesome deal!

Glossybox USA September 2013

Well, it has certainly been quite some time since I last posted! I do have a couple of pretty decent excuses: first a great friend of mine got married (I was helping out with the preparations for a solid 6 months) and then I myself got engaged! It has been incredibly exciting, and yet I feel a little bad for neglecting my blog.

I had also been taking a hiatus from Glossybox, but today broke the spell. I received an email with a spoiler, then checked out what else was supposed to come and… just placed my order. By the way, through 9/30 you can use code LIP to get a free Malin+Goetz Mojito Lip Balm ($12 retail) which has some pretty rave reviews on Makeup Alley.

SPOLIER ALERT: June Glossybox USA Preview – Dallas Shaw Collaboration + Code for Gift w/Subscription!

The June Glossybox is another collaboration, this time with Dallas Shaw. Remember the Man Repeller Glossybox from January? That Glossybox was absolutely amazing, definitely my all-time favorite.

January Glossybox USA: Man Repeller Collaboration

January Glossybox USA: Man Repeller Note Included!

January Glossybox USA: Man Repeller Note Included!

So today I finally got my January Glossybox. It’s technically already February, so they certainly did take their time with the shipping, but I just can’t be mad at them this time: for some reason they sent me not one, but two Man Repeller Glossyboxes! This came as quite a surprise, but you definitely won’t find me complaining – I couldn’t have wished for a better month to get a duplicate.

I had written a little bit about the context in the January Glossybox Preview post, so let’s see how the real thing compares to what we were promised!

January Glossybox: Curated by the Man Repeller

January Glossybox: Curated by the Man Repeller

Okay, I have to admit: on the one hand, I really like how most of the time Glossybox doesn’t give out any spoilers and the contents are a surprise till the very last minute. On the other hand, I am weak! So when I saw on MUT that a spoiler had been posted, it took all of 30 seconds of inner struggle for the curiosity to take over. And I have to say, I am now SUPER excited about January’s box! So if you already have a subscription, read on only if you’re okay with ruining the surprise.

Zoya Ziv Review and Swatches

Zoya Ziv - from the 2012 Zoya Ornate Collection

Zoya Ziv – from the 2012 Zoya Ornate Collection

It’s been a couple of weeks since I got my December Glossybox, and I’ve been actively using a lot of the products I’ve received. So far my absolute favorite has to be the Zoya Ziv nail polish. I had been wanting a gold nail polish for the holidays, and was super excited when I got the Ziv and not the Storm in my Glossybox – Storm is a beautiful black sparkly color, but I can’t wear colors as dark as that. For some reason on my nails they instantly look incredibly ugly, so I stay away from anything darker than a deep red burgundy.

I used the Ziv for my Christmas manicure (and of course the day before I broke one of my nails and had to do away with all the others – while I don’t typically do long nails, they are usually a bit longer than on the pictures) and here are my impressions: Continue reading
