November 2012 Glossybox

November’s Glossybox arrived this past Monday for me and it did not disappoint! The theme for November is all about getting ready to sparkle and shine for the holidays and came wrapped in festive red and white tissue and ribbon. I felt like I was unwrapping a real gift! The box was also quite heavy so I was very curious as to what was inside!

Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolor Holiday Shades in “All is Glam, All in Bright”

DSCF4261

These spectacular shades make the perfect gift or stocking stuffer!

Thoughts: I absolutely adore this colour! Which is why I bought it already last week! This polish is a very concentrated silver and red fine glitter of holiday awesomeness! This was a great addition to our Glossybox. 

Full size: 15mL/$10.99

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Kryolan for Glossybox Blusher in Glossy Rosewood

DSCF4262

A colour intensive powder blush, perfect for holiday-ready rosy cheeks.

Thoughts: A light, pink matte blush that feels quite soft and is another Kryolan Glossybox exclusive. The packaging is actually quite cute and I like this item much more than the lipstick!

Full size: 2.5g/$16.73

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Nexxus Salon Hair Care: Hydration Kit

DSCF4263

Therappe Luxurious Hydrating Shampoo: gently cleanses for nourished, healthy-looking hair. Humectress Ultimate Hydrating Conditioner: provides nourishing moisture, leaving hair luxuriously soft, manageable and full of lustre.

Thoughts: Even though I have received these before in a previous Topbox, I do like Nexxus hair products as my hair seems to respond well to them so now I have almost a full size product with these duplicates!

Full size: Therappe Shampoo – 400mL/$9.99 and Humectress Conditioner – 400mL/$14.99

I received: Therappe Shampoo – 89mL/$2.22 and Humectress Conditioner – 89mL/$3.34

Vitabath Moisturizing Shower and Bath Gelee in Fresh Citrus Twist

DSCF4264

Quality ingredients and rich fragrances indulge the sense and nourish the skin, resulting in a relaxing, yet invigorating at home spa experience. Paraben and sulfate-free!

Thoughts: I’ve been seeing these bath gels in stores and have been wanting to try some so seeing these in my Glossybox made me a very happy girl!

Full size: 170g/$18.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Maybelline MNY My Gloss

DSCF4265

Maybelline MNY provides fashionistas around the world with sensational products in trendy colours.

Thoughts: I love lip glosses that come in these cute little tubes! This shade is a frosty nude and is very much a colour I would wear. Another product that I was delighted to receive!

Full size: 9mL/$7.49

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Curel Hand & Cuticle Therapy Cream

DSCF4266

Soothes even the driest hands on contact and continues to moisturize even through repeated hand washings for all-day softness.

Thoughts: I loved the foot cream that I received in the May Glossybox so the hand cream couldn’t have come at a better time seeing as how the season is changing and my hands are constantly in need of hydration. Glossybox, this is another product I will use!

Full size: 100mL/$3.99

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Total Value of Glossybox: $62.76

This is the first month at the new price of $21 and I have to say that I am very pleased with what I have received. I know that there are some drugstore brands included and that I have complained in the past about receiving too many, but I feel like there is a good variety in November’s Glossybox and all are items that I know I will use. I don’t know if I’d use the Uber Loyalty card, as it would have been nice to receive a product sample from this company before buying their products online, but everything else suited my beauty habits perfectly!

Was everyone else just as happy with their Glossybox?

  1. This looks like such a fantastic box! Oh my! I love the maybelline lipgloss, and so nice that you got a full size nail polish! Do you own 2 of the same shade now? Please let us. Know how you get along with everything, I'm curious about the hand cream. :)

    1. I'm swapping my nail polish with another friend of mine who got a colour she didn't like so it all works out! The hand cream is pretty thick so I lather it on before I go to bed only.

    1. Generally, I think it's better, but at the price of $21 I sometimes wonder if it's worth it...

    1. I think it's my favourite out of this whole Kardashian collection. Then again, I am a sucker for glitter!

  6. I am using everything in this months box (except the Uber card). The blush is pretty good. It is pigmented and I found it lasts quite awhile on me.

    1. What is up with that Uber card?? You'd think they'd throw in a sample of the product line since none of us know what it is!

  7. I got pretty much the same thing with exception of the shower gel, I got the sugar scrub and a different colour of the gloss

    I was pretty happy with my box, the nail polish I also already previously purchased (same shade as yours!) So I am thinking I will add it to one of my Christmas gifts I will give

  10. I agree - the Nexxus from topbox is great! Those samples are in my gym bag. The nail polish in this box is pretty cool :) those Kardashian shades overall are quite nice.
