Who has ordered one?
It just went on general release today. Not bad at £80 for non-subscribers, and worth over £370. Lots of different products. Quite makeup heavy but I’d use most of it.

Anyone else?

Link to buy: https://www.glossybox.co.uk
Contents link (SPOILERS): https://www.reallyree.com/glossybox-advent-calendar/

Me too. It looks good. My daughter will take any makeup I don't use.

Writersblock2 Fri 27-Sep-19 15:18:08

It does look good. I’m hoping I forget most of the contents by the time I open it so I can be surprised lol.

whyamidoingthis Fri 27-Sep-19 15:45:17

I've forgotten most of it already grin

Hi everyone! Ready for the morning? I’m buzzing!!

whyamidoingthis Sat 30-Nov-19 21:38:04

Me too. GLOSSYBOX are doing a daily reveal with tips and tutorials at www.glossybox.ie/christmas/beauty-advent-calendar.list#

Butterymuffin Sat 30-Nov-19 22:45:30

Yes, I'm ready! Haven't looked at the contents or any unboxings, so I am ready to be totally surprised!

Oooh thank you - I've bookmarked that. Will make sure I open before nosing on there and on fbook too incase they post it on the glossybox page smile

I know what 25 is - or rather what sort of product it is - purely because the back page of my 'spoiler' booklet was bent down slightly and I saw the top corner. Been forcing myself not to watch spoilers on fbook or look anything else up smile

I did look at the unboxing but tbh I did for a whole bunch, some I bought and some I didn’t. So I honestly can’t remember what’s in anything. Exciting!

SymphonyofShadows Sat 30-Nov-19 23:13:27

I can’t remember what’s in it, but I had it last year and loved it. Not long now!

SymphonyofShadows Sun 01-Dec-19 08:46:02

Is this going to be the daily thread? Delighted with today’s offering. A strong start.

Writersblock2 Sun 01-Dec-19 09:32:59

@SymphonyofShadows - Yep, this is the daily thread. Feel free to say what it is as long as it’s on the right day (anyone opening in advance should only reveal on the correct day).

I think it’s a great item. Brill start from Glossybox. I’ve not got any products from NYX but I keep hearing about them. I will definitely use these shadows. Can never have too many neutrals. Great size for taking in holiday too.

whyamidoingthis Sun 01-Dec-19 09:39:12

I agree the colours are fab. They will suit most people's colouring. I love the sparkly ones.

Butterymuffin Sun 01-Dec-19 09:39:56

I like this! Good to start with a substantial product, and like @Writersblock2 I'll always be able to use neutral colours. I know people often say they like red / glittery stuff at Christmas but tbh I won't use those much the rest of the year.

CottonHeadedNinyMuggins Sun 01-Dec-19 09:43:24

Very happy with the NYX Ultimate pallette in warm neutrals this morning. Again as I said in another thread, I had a massive make up/skin care clear out and use up to make way for the December influx of calendar stuff and I'm glad this is there because the palette's from Glossy box most recently are not my colour in the slightest. This one most definitely is!

Strong start from Glossy box! smile

Writersblock2 Sun 01-Dec-19 09:46:36

What do you all think of the packaging? I really like it. It’s a heavy calendar and it feels pretty luxe. A lot more substantial than some of the others. Makes me wonder about the sub boxes - if they are like this then I’d be impressed.

whyamidoingthis Sun 01-Dec-19 09:56:19

They haven't revealed on the glossybox website yet. I'm hoping they do some demos with the eyeshadow. Nice to see some different ways of using it.

SymphonyofShadows Sun 01-Dec-19 09:59:28

Thanks Writers The sub boxes are a mixture. You get some higher end products mixed in with some oddities. Last year in December I think I got a really nice palette and Imperial Leather ‘mermaid’ shower gel amongst the items.

Keepsmiling1 Sun 01-Dec-19 14:31:22

Will be following this one carefully!

Tetraread Mon 02-Dec-19 07:19:34

Did anyone get the christmas box? I think it's already sold out!

Writersblock2 Mon 02-Dec-19 07:56:39

Nah, decided not to in the end, since I have so many calendars.

Speaking of: happy with today’s offering. What does everyone else think?

Butterymuffin Mon 02-Dec-19 08:31:36

I'm pleased as I had resolved to try some new perfumes. Just getting ready so I'll put it on then and see what I think. It's a decent tester size.

I didn't go for the Christmas box either, as I figured I will have a glut of stuff from my many calendars. Also I have lots of Yankee candles already and there was another item I wouldn't have used, so that just tipped things.

whyamidoingthis Mon 02-Dec-19 08:59:40

The perfume if lovely. I'm wearing it this morning and have been complimented on it smile

Butterymuffin Mon 02-Dec-19 10:26:45

I like it now I've put it on. Another good day!

whyamidoingthis Mon 02-Dec-19 10:35:46

The reveals on the GLOSSYBOX website don't seem to be happening but I found this for day 1.
