Give & Get: Holiday Glossybox

Holiday Glossybox Review - Politics of PrettyNow that it’s officially the holiday season, I do my best to avoid shopping for myself through the end of the year. I can’t count how many times I’ve had the urge to splurge on makeup; but I’ve figured out a way to compromise and the solution, is the Glossybox Holiday Box. Featuring eight products (seven are full-sized cosmetics), this velvety wrapped gift box is filled with all the makeup essentials you need for the holiday party season without breaking the bank. Here’s a look at what’s inside this limited edition box:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Color Concentrates in Smote—I love wearing glimmering eyeshadow to parties. This formula is infused with holographic pigment that will complement any holiday look.

Cargo TexasLiner Liquid Eye Liner—For a smudge-proof look, stick with a liquid liner that has maximum staying power. This chubby felt-tip works well for bold and dramatic eye looks.

Korres Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara—While I prefer long and defined lashes during the day, I want LOTS of lashes at night. The tapered brush allows for full lashes with a glossy finish.

Teadora Nourishing Lip Butter in Rainforest at Dawn—Before coating your lips with a classic red lipstick or gloss, prep your pout with this citrusy lip balm. You’ll avoid chapped lips for hours.

The Lip Bar Lipstick in Crimson Wonderland—This candy apple red is equal parts moisturizing, sexy and long lasting.

Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Wind—If lipstick isn’t your thing, you’ll still be well equipped for standing beneath the mistletoe with this hydrating gloss in a pinky nude shade. It’s flattering on almost every skin tone.

NCLA Nail Lacquer in Satin Sheets, Velvet Ropes—Nothing puts me in the Christmas spirit like a holiday mani. This polish screams sexy red digits.

Calvin Klein Reveal—On the hunt for a warm holiday scent? This boasts notes of sensual sandalwood.

The Glossybox Holiday Box is free with a 12-month subscription using code HOLIDAY; or $40 by itself ($140 value)
