Violet Box December 2014


It's coming to the end of a year of boxes!  I have 2 memeboxes on their way to me, but the arrival of my Dec VB marks the end of my subscriptions for the year.  Dec's VB rocked up 2 weeks after my Nov box, just in time for Christmas.
Coastal Scents Go Palette-rrp $16.95-full size

The sneak peek for the month.  Mine's in Cairo, a mix of bronzes, golds and browns (the other option was Beijing).  This is lovely, the packaging feels nice, and they are mostly highly pigmented (a couple of the matte shades aren't the best).  Each pan is tiny, though, but it's a nice way to get a feel for the brand.
Mellow Cosmetics Gel liner-rrp $10-full size

I swatched this thinking i wasn't all that impressed, but it is lovely.  It goes on so smoothly, is highly pigmented, and doesn't come back off in a hurry (i had to scrub the swatch off with a baby wipe, and you can still see traces of it).  The brush that comes with it isn't the best, but that is easily remedied, and this little pot will last for ages.
Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturiser-rrp $69-sample size

I wasn't that excited when i saw this, however the sample is 30ml.  Full size is 50ml, making this sample the most expensive item in the box (is it just me, or is it slightly sad when a sample is worth more than anything in a sample box.  Actually this sample is almost worth as much as the other 4 items combined).  It sounds interesting, it claims to double as a makeup base, and suits all skin types.
Designer Brands Lashes-rrp $8.99-full size

More DB!  Gah!  Anyway i've never used false lashes, i might have to change that.  These are latex free, and come with a preglued lash strip (which has people excited?)
Lonvitalite 24K Active Gold Yulan Oil Face Mask-rrp $9.95-full size

I think this has now made the rounds of all the boxes, i already have this in my mask collection (plus the matching eye masks) from LHI.

All in all it isn't the most exciting box i've received from VB, however it will all get used eventually.

Have you received yours yet?
