♥ Lush None Of Your Beeswax Lip Balm

This was another birthday gift from the lovely Storm. It’s a solid lip balm that reacts to your body heat when you use your fingers to apply it. It smells like lemons, vanilla and mandarin and it feels so moisturizing and nice on the lips. It’s the first lush lip balm I have tried and I’m really impressed!

♥ Batiste Dry Shampoo “Sassy & Daring – Wild”

This was a birthday gift from my sister and I have always wanted to try it. I have sworn by the cherry scented one for a while but boy, I love this one so much! It has kind of a “masculine” scent, not really sure exactly what it is, but it’s great. It goes really well with my Smuggler’s soul perfume too, which is very woodsy.

♥ Maybelline Mauve Mania Lipstick

When I thought I couldn’t have any more mauve lipsticks, I found another one from Maybelline’s collection. This one is just a standard mauve lipstick, but it’s still pretty. It has a way brighter color than what Galactic and Magic mauve has so it’s more of a ‘special occasion’ lipstick for me than an everyday lipstick.

♥ RWBY

RWBY is an american anime web series created by Monty Oum (Rest in peace) and it’s produced by Rooster Teeth. It follows the stories of Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna and Yang Xiao Long and their fights against moral dilemmas, monsters and other evil beings. The show has been running since 2013 and has become quite a hit in both the western world and in Japan and it has now a Japanese dub and is recognized as a true anime over there, as opposed to the “cartoon” image it has elsewhere. I recently started over from the beginning and it’s a very emotional experience. I’d recommend this for anyone who’s interested in Anime and want something new to watch.

♥ Makeup Revolution HD Pro Strobe Palette

This is such a pretty palette! It has two powders, two creams. One is iridescent, one is slightly pink, one slightly peachy and the last one is very golden. The swatches below are from left to right in the palette. I love mixing the two powders together, or using the creams together. It’s so easy to create a blinding highlight with these! The two powders also sort of work as a shimmery blush for me.

♥ L’Oreal Age Perfect Cleansing Milk

Technically this series of products is made for mature skin, meaning women 50+, but it works wonder on my skin! It smells heavenly, it makes my skin feel so supple and refreshed, and not to mention squeaky clean. I use it in combination with the Age Perfect toner and my skin has never felt or looked better. Would definitely recommend for anyone that needs an extra boost.

♥ Batiste Cherry scented dry shampoo

This smells so wonderfully sweet! I mainly love the scent, especially combined with my vanilla scented perfume, but it also works great as a dry shampoo. It doesn’t leave any weird white residue on my hair and it makes it feel clean on the days where I don’t wash my hair. I wash my hair every three days or so, sometimes more, sometimes less. This is a lifesaver.

♥ Dragon Age: Asunder by David Gaider

This was mentioned in my “What I read in August” post. It is a book from one of my favorite video game series, Dragon Age and it gives the reader more background information about Cole. He is a companion you can have in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

What is on my vanity?

December 26, 2016 — 4 Comments

I usually love reading posts like these, so i decided to do one of my own! The upper and lower and so on is the parts of my vanity! 

20161221_112319

Lower right side:

Lush Coconut Deodorant powder, Sanex 7-in-1 deodorant, Garnier Moisture +, Cotton swabs and Victoria’s Secret Vanilla Lace body mist. I’m sort of allergic and sensitive to perfume, but body mists work.

20161221_112459

Lower left side:

One container with hair and face sprays, including a Sunsilk conditioner spray, a make up setting spray, Batiste dry shampoo that smells like cherries and the Tea tree toner water from Lush. Lastly it contains my hairbrush, a pair of scissors and a comb.

The other container contains my Maybelline NUDES palettes (Normal nudes, blushed nudes and rock nudes), my foundation powders and assorted face masks.

20161221_112513

Lower middle:

Here comes the messy part! In the back i have all of my pencils (both eyeliners and eyebrow pencils), eyebrow razors, my bb cream, a lip tint and two nail polishes. The large left compartment holds my single eye shadows, blotting papers, Lush Jackie Oates foundation, a fluffy brush for my powders, a pencil sharpener and a sponge i use to dab on my foundation/bb cream with. The small compartments on the right holds lipsticks, a cream to help against infections in wounds (i have no idea why its there…), eyebrow pomade crayon, a small mascara, lip balm, a sample for a brightening serum, tweezers, a nail clipper and Lush eyes bright mascara.

Upper left:

Lush fireside soap, two bottles of Silky underwear, t for toes, fairy dust and mr sandman dusting powders. A nail clipping set, vanillary solid perfume, sweet lips scrub, sympathy for the skin body lotion and another tub of Jackie Oates.

20161221_112635

Upper right:

Cotton wool pads, a foot lotion, a pretty jar with Fairy dust dusting powder (the bottle cap broke so i found an alternative container), a body lotion and a Skinfood rice mask that i have yet to try.

So that’s what i have on my vanity as of right now! Have you done a post like this before? Feel free to leave a link below, i would love to see it.

Disclaimer; Norway’s Glossybox might differ a bit from, for example, the american ones. We are very particular about products and everything apparently needs to be made for Nordic hair and skin and whatnot. Luckily we get products to try that we don’t necessarily see in stores here all the time. I’ve heard about a couple of the brands, mainly from watching other Glossybox unboxing videos. I also pay for the boxes out of my own pocket, so this post is not sponsored in any way.

November’s theme was Christmas Sparkle! This is mainly because they send the boxes at the end of the month, so December’s box won’t arrive until after New Years Eve, a bit late for Christmas! The box is a gorgeous silver holographic on the bottom and dark with sparkles on the top, i love it!

La Theorie des Volcans – Noir Eternae Youth Potion, Face Scrub
This is a mask and scrub combination, containing volcanic stone and amethyst crystals apparently. It’s vegan and contains 90% natural ingredients. I’m excited to try it!

This is a full sized product and it is worth 290 NOK / ~$34

20161130_092645

Weleda – Skin Food moisturizer
This is apparently used by and loved by celebrities from around the world. It is an intensive moisturizer that you can use on your face, your lips, your hands, your cuticles and wherever you have dry skin.

This is a sample size (10ml), the original is 70 ml and worth 189 NOK / ~$22

20161130_092742

DE BRUYERE BEAUTE – Jumbo eye pencil, Bubble 07
This is an eyeliner and eye shadow combo. It is a metallic gray-ish brown and its creamy and easy to apply. Honestly it’s a perfect, subtle color for Christmas parties.

This is a full sized product and it is worth 150 NOK / ~$17.50

20161130_092806

20161130_092854

Weleda – Nail care pen
This is a product for your cuticles and your nails. You twist it and it dispenses a gel like substance that you brush onto wherever you need to use it. It smells a bit weird but I’m sure it does wonders.

This is a full sized product and it is worth 169 NOK / ~$20

20161130_093000

EMITÉ MAKE-UP – Lip and cheek tint
This is a very natural looking lip tint. It might look very red on the swatch but once it is on your lips it pretty much enhances your natural color. It dries down quickly and it is transfer proof. It can also be used as a cheek tint but you would have to be quick since it dries down so fast.

This is a full sized product and it is worth 170 NOK / ~$20

BATISTE – XXL Volume spray
Like the name says, this a spray designed to give you lots of volume. I don’t really enjoy having voluminous hair so i will probably pass this on to my sister. It smells great though!

This is a full sized product and it is worth 39 NOK / ~$4.50

I was really happy with the variety of items in this months box, and very happy with the design! The total value (calculated based on the sample sizes) comes to 845 NOK / ~$99. That’s a pretty decent value since the box only costs 179 NOK / ~$21.
