Blink + Go Long Lasting Black mascara- Why had I never heard of Blink + Go before the December Glossybox? I love this product! My lashes wouldn't look the same without it!
No7 Poppy King Lip glosses- I got the pair of these for £6 in the sales- I love them both! Staying power is great for a lip gloss.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in fair- Yes, the concealer every beauty blogger seems to be going crazy for..I like it, I'm not like amazed by it, But it does a bloody good job for £4.19!
MUA eyeshadow (Shade 16) - For a pound a pop this stuff is amazing, I noticed when I first wake up my eyelids seem to look pretty dull..I just swipe a little of this on for a natural looking more awake look.
Avon blackhead clearing deep treatment mask- For £2, I wasn't really expecting much. But in one use, I could really notice a difference with my skin, Which makes it an instant love this month!
Avon Solutions Complete Balance- I love this stuff! It wasn't a product that automatically amazed me, but after a couple of weeks of using it my skin feels so much softer. Plus it has a pump which makes the use of the product so much easier!
Kleenex Facial Cloths- A bit of an odd one really, I just really like using these on my skin, they feel so soft- Plus they are amazing for removing nail polish!
Hammam Delight shower gel- Another product from my glossy box which I love using, I love the whole foaming gel idea and it smells great!

In natural light, this colour looks a lot more red- But thanks to my college timetable by the time I get home it’s always dark outside! My first thought was that I’d been given the wrong colour, until I checked the bottom and saw it was definitely right..
I do like this this colour on my lips though- It’s something I would wear out, Its just a little too bold or my daily look - Avon promises ‘8 hours of lasting colour’ I haven’t actually tried it for that long yet so I can’t really comment- Although I will say I tested the colour again on my arm over an hour ago and it refuses to budge without water!
The packaging of this product is actually pretty thin for a lipstick, compared to my Barry M one it seems tiny despite it being a fair bit taller:
Because of the packaging being so 'skinny', I worry that the casing could be more prone to breaking. Although I do think If the product is good, the packaging shouldn't bother you too much, its what's inside of it which you should focus on [Just don't go putting any weight on it- It will snap like a twig!]
Overall, I do think this is lipstick is good value [Normally £7, but Avon are great with their deals] It Just was not what I was expecting, So I would recommend asking an avon rep about colours before buying. The application was great and it didn't feel too drying on my lips. Although I think it's something that will have to go towards the back of my draw until I feel bold enough to wear it:
Do you own any Avon lipsticks?

Avon for me is very hit or miss, Most of the time I love their products, Its just the packaging and shading that lets them down massively! Despite this- I still manage to spend a ridiculous amount on it every month..
I've never tried anything from the Clearskin range, So when I saw they were half price- I had to buy! Considering how much I waste on skin care, my skin isn't actually that bad but it never kills to be prepared for the worse case scenario- Backhead Cleaning deep treatment mask-
I was about to run out of my beloved 17 Nail Xtra Strengthening Base Coat, So ordered this until I can be bothered to make the run to Boots..Plus it was half price so I figured why not- Base Coat -

Such a great mix of warm colours, I was very impressed by the second row- Such a lovely mix of browns.
I was really surprised by the pigmentation of the shadows- after swatching the first row I wasn't really expecting much- But it really improved thoughout the palette..Overall I love this palette, I cant say I see myself using all of the colours, although there are a good few I cant wait to use!

The box was delivered on the 23rd, which I thought was pretty quick with it being so near to Christmas – Although Royal mail had battered the box a fair bit! I wasn’t allowed to open the box until Christmas day. It was the first thing I headed to when I woke up- Which was at 5am thanks to my nine year old sister!
I was really happy with the contents of my Glossy box:
