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! :-)

♥ Bottega Verde Pearlescent Make-Up Base, HERE
♥ uslu airlines Nail Polish in XMS, HERE
♥ 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! :-) 

 ♥ December Glossybox. 

♥ L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray, HERE
♥ Make Up Store Nail Polish in William, HERE
♥ Burt's Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm With Acai Berry, HERE
♥ Bellapierre Cosmetic Glitter in Spectra, HERE
♥ 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? :-)

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. 

♥ PRITI NYC Nail Polish in Schwarkopf.

♥ PRITI NYC Nail Polish in Schwarkopf. 

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? :-)

2014 is over, which means that it's time for me to share my favorite beauty products from the past year! At first I thought that this was going to be a very difficult task for me to pull of, but it was actually surprisingly easy to narrow it down to only 14 products. You might have seen a lot of these products in my monthly favorites posts already, but let's go on and take another look at them! :-)
 ♥ Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette, (HERE). 

 ♥ Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette, (HERE). 

The Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette has been my most loved and used palette back in 2014. It has a beautiful selection of six neutral eye shadows, one shimmery shade and five matte shades. Every shade in this little palette is gorgeous! They are all pigmented and easy to blend, but they are a bit powdery. I personally don't mind that, but that might be a deal breaker for some of you. If you love neutral eyeshadow palettes, the Naked Basics Palette is definitely worth checking out, it's a wonderful little palette for everyday wear! :-) 

♥ Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15, (HERE) & Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in 110, (HERE). 

The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 15 has been my favorite and most used concealer from the past year. It's very easy to blend and it has nice coverage. It doesn't crease too much under my eyes, which is one of the reasons why I really like it. I like to use it in combination with the Maybelline Fit Me foundation, because they work so well together! :-) 

I'm sure that this next product won't come as a shock to anyone of you who have been keeping up with my monthly favorites posts! It's the Fit Me foundation by Maybelline New York! This foundation has been a huge favorite of mine for a couple of years now and also my go-to foundation throughout the entire year of 2014.

If you are looking for a foundation that will give you some coverage and still look natural on the skin, this one is a great one to add to your collection. It's very easy to apply and it blends flawlessly into the skin. I like to apply it with my damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. The sponge makes it look very natural and not too cakey and heavy, as it would if you used a brush.

 ♥ Stila Cosmetics One Step Correct, (HERE).

Another product that have adored and been using non-stop in 2014 is the One Step Correct by Stila Cosmetics. You might have seen this beauty featured in a couple of my monthly favorites posts already. If you haven't seen them and you're not familiar with it, it's a color-corrector, brightener and anti-aging skincare serum primer. It contains 3 color-correcting brighteners. A green tone which instantly neutralizes redness and conceals blemishes, a lavender tone which counteracts sallow undertones for a vibrant, energized look and a peach tone which brightens, illuminates and helps diminish the appearance of sun spots.

It neutralizes my skin and makes it look less red and more even. It also makes my foundation go on smoother and look a lot better. It leaves behind a nice and natural looking glow as well, which I'm a big fan of. It feels very nice and hydrating on the skin, so it's a lovely product to add to you're makeup routine if you suffer from dry skin! :-) 

♥ Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Pro Balm, (HERE). 

Another beauty favorite from the past year has been the Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Pro balm. It's a primer that minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines. It's easy to apply and it feels silky smooth and lightweight on the skin. It makes my makeup go on even and stay put throughout the day. Definitely a product worth checking out if you are looking for a new primer to try out! :-) 

 ♥ MAC Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle, (HERE). 

MAC Cosmetics's Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle was my most used and loved highlighter thoughout the entire year of 2014. It's really shimmery and pretty and it make my cheeks look so glowy and beautiful, it's a real stunner. I know MAC Cosmetics isn't the most affordable beauty brand available on the beauty market, but if you were to buy only one product from their range, I highly recommend that you check out Soft and Gentle.

Give it a good swatch the next time you are at your local MAC counter, I'm almost sure that you are going to fall head over heels in love with it just like I did the first time that I tried it out. It's definitely a must have in my book! It's going to be with you for a very long time, you probably won't need to buy another highlighter again for a very, very long time! :-)

 ♥ Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara in Black, (HERE).

The Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Mascara in Black has been one of my favorite mascaras in 2014. It gives my lashes some much needed length and volume, without making them look clumpy and stuck together. It's also easy to remove, which is very important to me. If a mascara is a pain in the butt to remove, I will most likely not be buying it again. The Rimmel London Lash Accelerator is a mascara that I will be re-purchasing over and over again, because that is how much I enjoy using it! :-)

 ♥ Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eyeliner Pencil in 12L, (HERE). 

The Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes in 12L is a beautiful, blue eyeliner pencil with green highlights. It's nice and creamy, long lasting and I like that it makes my green eyes pop. I love how it looks paired with a bronzed eye, it just compliments it so well and it's how I have been wearing it since I got it. As for the staying power, it does last a while on the waterline before it fades away and needs to be re-applied. I'm really impressed with this eyeliner pencil from Make Up For Ever, I'm really tempted to go on Sephora's website and order a couple more shades from this range, they all look so pretty! :-)

♥ NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush in Peach, (HERE). 

NYX Cosmetics's Powder Blush in Peach is another product that have been getting a lot of love from me in 2014. It's a beautiful peachy pink blush with a satin finish. It blends beautifully into the skin, while leaving behind a very natural look. If you have a fair/light complexion like myself, you need this blush in your life. It's the perfect everyday blush, I just can't say enough good things about it! :-) 

 ♥ Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Powder, (HERE). 

Make Up For Ever HD High Definition Powder has been my favorite powder to use to set my under eye concealer in 2014. I like that it doesn't look too heavy under my eyes, it doesn't settle into my fine lines and it keeps my concealer in place throughout the day.

I have heard some people say that this have made them look extremely white in photos. I haven't had that problem. I only use a teeny amount of powder to set my concealer, so that might be the reason why? A little goes a long way with this powder, so it's going to last you a good while. I bought mine a couple of years ago and it doesn't even look like I've used it. I highly recommend this powder from Make Up For Ever, it's one of the best powders that I have tried! :-) 

♥ Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow, (HERE). 

If you haven't had a chance to try out Gimme Brow by Benefit Cosmetics yet, you definitely need to jump on the bandwagon and give it a try. It's been my go-to brow product for months now and it has quickly become a staple in my daily makeup bag. I'm not good at filling in my brows with pencil or powder, so this is right up my alley. It's so quick and easy to use and it makes the eyebrows look very natural and pretty. It instantly gives them a boost and makes them look more put together, without looking too overdone. Definitely a must try! :-) 

♥ Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray, (HERE). 

The Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray has been my go-to and favorite makeup setting spray in 2014. What I really love about this makeup setting spray is that it really does make my makeup last longer and it keeps it looking nice and fresh and pretty throughout the entire day. It has prevented my makeup from melting of my face during Summer, it's truly heaven in a bottle. It's hands down the best makeup setting spray that I have tried so far, it's definitely worth checking out if you are looking for one to try out for yourself! :-)

 ♥ Makeup Revolution Lip Geek Lipstick in Totally NOT Boring, (HERE). 

Makeup Revolution's Lip Geek Lipstick in Totally NOT Boring has made it into my 2014 beauty favorites! Totally NOT Boring is a beautiful, deep pinky purple with a cream finish. It has great pigmentation and a nice creamy texture, which glides on the lips like butter.

If you love a pretty dark lip, Totally NOT Boring is worth adding to your lipstick collection. Makeup Revolution's entire Lip Geek lipstick range is currently on sale for only £1.99 so if you have been wanting to try these out, now is definitely the right time to do it! :-)

♥ Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry, (HERE). 

The Carmex Lip Balm in Cherry has been a huge favorite of mine in 2014! It's been a lifesaver during the past couple of months when it's been really dry and cold outside. It has kept my lips nice, soft and moisturized throughout the day, which have been so amazing. No more chapped and painful lips, hurray! At night, right before I go to bed, I like to apply a thick coat of this lip balm. When I wake up the next morning, my lips feel so soft and smooth, it's incredible. It has a cherry scent and taste which I didn't like when I tried it out for the first time, but now I actually find myself enjoy it a lot! :-) 

So there you have it, my favorite beauty products from 2014. What products were your favorites from the past year? :-) 

- Love, Christine ♥
