GlossyBox - Holiday 2014

Part of what makes the holidays so much better are the holiday themed boxes! Once upon a time I had a chance to order a limited edition GlossyBox for the first time ever! Unlike all of the subscriptions I currently have, this one is on the pricier side ($21 monthly) which is why I snagged the Holiday 2014 box because it's a one time purchase that guarantees seven full size makeup products and one deluxe size fragrance for only $40. It has a $140+ value so you surely can't go wrong with this purchase. Plus theres a preview of everything you'll receive just in case you're curious. Now let's get on to better details!

If you're not familiar with GlossyBox, I've overheard that their packaging is the best!

A dream come true! The theme for this box is "Paint the town red".

Volcanic Minerals Volumizing Mascara Korres
TexasLiner Liquid Eye Liner Cargo
Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Wind Jouer
Lipstick in Crimson Wonderland The Lip Bar

You can never have too much mascara. I was actually going to purchase this mascara once because I've heard really positive things about it. I think this may be a new one that I'll come to love but I don't think I'll classify it as a favorite yet.

Eye liner is also another product I can't have enough of. This eyeliner however features a chubby felt tip which is different than my usual ones. I can't wait to try and master the cat eye with this one!

The Jouer lip gloss is one that has received a lot of hype especially from Birchbox. This color is a pale pink/nude which is not the greatest for my complexion but can work with some adjustments. The formula is more creamy than glossy and is indeed moisturizing.

The lipstick is a limited edition candy apple red color that I know I will love! I'm a fan of red lips so I surely won't have enough of this!

Nail Lacquer in Satin Sheets, Velvet Ropes NCLA
Loose Colour Concentrates in Smote Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
Nourishing Lip Butter in Rainforest at Dawn Teadora
Reveal Calvin Klein

I love red nails almost as much as I do red lips. I've never tried NCLA polishes before but this one is awesome. It has a shimmer to it which makes the red pop even more with festivity. 

The eyeshadow is one that I believe I will be obsessed with. It's a sheer-like chocolatey pink with glimmer effects which would look great if applied lightly in my opinion. My beautyblender and I will be in awe.

You can't go wrong with lip butters especially this time of year. The Teadora lip butter leaves your lips moisturized and smelling great with its wonderful citrusy scent!

Who knew that a deluxe size sample meant half an ounce?! This is great especially since I've recently tried the sample just a month ago in one of my subscription boxes. The warm scent is great for this season so I'll surely be putting this to good use.

Included in the box was also a fold out card that describes all of the items you'll receive. You can view them all here.

Overall I loved everything in this box and honestly I wish I had ordered more to send out as gifts. I can look forward to using every product and I definitely received more than enough value than what I bargained for. Limited edition boxes don't stick around for long so get yours while you can! Also you can receive this box for free if you sign up for a 12-month subscription to GlossyBox by using the coupon code HOLIDAY.
