I have to admit that for a while I had cancelled my Birchbox order, I felt that our relationship was getting a little stale and we both needed a break. I’m so glad I chose the December box to make up with!
It’s full of party ready products to help you be the belle of the ball and rescue your skin the morning after! I don’t know about you but my skin doesn’t react so well after a night on the booze!
So what’s in the box? (Spoiler alert, if you haven’t received yours yet and what it to be a surprise, stop reading now!)
The box I received is split into two make-up products, two skincare and one haircare, so a nice mix of everything.
First up is the full size Ciaté London Fierce Flicks black eyeliner. It’s a felt tip eyeliner which gives precision lines keeping your eye make-up on point!
Whilst we’re on the subject of eyes the next product is the Eyelighter from Laqa & Co, the shade I received is called Co-Pilot. This is a nice highlighter to have in your ‘on the go’ make up bag, perfect for taking you from ‘working day’ face, to ‘belle of the ball’ in a matter of minutes.
For me, there’s nothing worse than feeling and looking a bit shiny. No one wants to look at photos after the Christmas Party and think ‘god I was the shiniest one’ this is where Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Matte Rescue will quite literally come to the rescue! Apply this after cleansing and before foundation for an all-day matte finish.
Keeping hair looking on point during the winter can be a nightmare, constant weather changes and not to mention office heating can leave it feeling a bit fly away and static. The Perfectly Perfection Wonder Balm from Percy & Reed will not only protect but also smooth and soften. It makes my hair feel so good!
Now after all of the partying and if your skin is anything like mine you’ll need something to help calm it. I always end up with puffy under-eyes which is never a great look. The Starskin Eye Catcher is infused with vitamin-rich coconut juice which will not only cool the area but also de-puff!
So that’s everything in the ‘Merry & Bright’ December Birchbox. I love it, have you got yours yet?
