GLOSSYBOX CHRISTMAS LIMITED EDITION BOX

I have been taking a little break from Glossybox, because I haven't been very happy with some of the boxes that I have received from them in the past. Now that it's a brand new year, I thought that I would give them another chance. It seems like they have been stepping up their game lately, so I'm looking forward to seeing what's inside the next boxes. Hopefully they are going to be amazing! :-)

Every now and then, Glossybox comes out with a limited edition box filled with only full sized products. This is one of their limited edition boxes, which was released right before Christmas. It's filled with 6 full sized beauty products, valued at over 1100NOK ($143). I only paid around $36, which is a total steal and such a good deal. 

Let's take a closer look at the products inside the box! :-)

♥ Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow Duo in Tinsel, HERE
♥ Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter in Berry, HERE.

I'm not familiar with any of these products or brands, so I'm definitely excited to test them out and see what I think about them. It's always fun to try out new products from brands that I haven't heard much about, don't you think so too? Everything in this box looks nice, but I'm most excited to try out the -417 Cleansing Gel, Royal Apothic Tinties Lip Butter and the uslu airlines nail polish. They look so lovely and they sound like products that I'm going to enjoy and love using! :-)

♥ Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, HERE

I have also added a photo of the items that I received in my December box. I thought that I would include them in this post, instead of doing a whole new post dedicated only to the December box! :-)

Anyway, there were some really lovely items in the December box! The Burt's Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm was the first product I noticed when I opened up the box and I couldn't be more happy with it, I have been wanting to try it out for ages now. The Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat was also part of the December box. It's one of my favorite top coats, I just wish that the bottle was bigger though! The L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray is a lovely product! I have the big bottle in my bathroom cabinet and I really like it. It's great for keeping my hair in place, without making it feel stiff or greasy. I really like the size of this one, perfect to travel with or for keeping in your daily makeup bag in your purse.

I haven't heard much about the brand Bellapierre, but their products do look super lovely. I received one of their cosmetic glitters called Spectra, which can be used on the body and the face. I'm not sure how I'm going to use it yet, any ideas? I also received this beautiful nail polish from Make Up Store called William, a gorgeous mint green. I already have it in my nail polish collection, so I might do a giveaway if anyone is interested? Let me know in the comments down below! :-) 

Are you subscribed to GlossyBox? What did you receive in your December box? Have you ordered any limited edition boxes from them before? :-)

PRITI NYC NAIL POLISH IN CHERRY RIPE, SCHWARKOPF & SOY POLISH REMOVER: REVIEW, PHOTOS & SWATCHES

Today's blog post is going to be all about two lovely nail polishes and a nail polish remover from the brand PRITI NYC. PRITI NYC is a luxury eco-friendly nail polish brand. They are 5-free and vegan, completely non-toxic and free of all known carcinogenic ingredients. There are over 100 different shades to choose from including metallics, mattes, bright neons, rich darks, classic nudes and everything in between, so there is definitely a little something for everyone here. 

Let's go on and take a closer look at these beauties, shall we? :-) 

 ♥ PRITI NYC Nail Polish in Cherry Ripe.

Cherry Ripe is an opaque deep blue red fuchsia.

Schwarkopf is a beautiful, deep navy blue. 

Both Cherry Ripe and Schwarkopf are easy to apply. The consistency is quite thick and they both have a nice and thin brush, which is easy to control during the application. They both look really beautiful and glossy on the nails. They dry quickly and they are both completely opaque in only two thin coats! :-) 

♥ PRITI NYC Soy Polish Remover. 

The PRITI NYC Soy Polish Remover is totally natural and uses a carefully blended mix of natural ingredients that are kind on your nails and skin. It's 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, and non-carcinogenic. It's infused with soybean esters, it's naturally derived and it contains lemongrass essential oils. The Soy Nail Polish Remover is also housed in an apothecary style bottle, which is completely recyclable! :-)

If you're not a big fan of strong scented nail polish removers and you have dry nails and cuticles, you might want to check this one out by PRITI NYC. It doesn't have a strong or unpleasant scent at all, which is the reason why I like it. It comes in two different sizes, 2 oz and 4 oz. You can choose between the unscented remover or the lemongrass scented remover, which is supposed to have a lovely sitruss scent. It's also available as wipes, which is very useful for traveling and for when you are on the go. You never know when you might need one, so they are definitely quite handy to keep in your handbag! :-) 

Although I love that it doesn't have a strong scent, I just didn't find myself reaching for it as much as I thought I would. I also found it to be a little time consuming and messy to use. It's quite oily, which I'm not the biggest fan of and it makes the cotton stick to my nails and leave behind a tiny forest of fur. I do like it and it does the job, but it's not going to replace the Maybelline Express Remover, which is my all time favorite nail polish remover! :-)

 
♥ PRITI NYC Nail Polish in Cherry Ripe & Schwarkopf. 

Although the Soy Polish Remover didn't quite work out for me, I'm head over heels in love with the two nail polishes. Cherry Ripe and Schwarkopf are so gorgeous! I have a bit of an obsession with darker nail polishes, so these two are right up my alley. Cherry Ripe is hands down my favorite one out of the two nail polishes. It's the most beautiful, deep red fuchsia and I can't wait to wear it again! :-) 

Where to buy?

Have you tried PRITI NYC before? Which nail polish is your favorite, Cherry Ripe or Schwarkopf? :-)
