What’s in my November Glossybox?

Pin ItI know it’s already December but I just received my Glossybox a few days ago!  This theme of this month’s Glossybox is ‘Tis the Season to be Glossy… but like Brooke from
blushingnoir mentioned, there is no gloss in this box! 

The package arrived in the typical (easy to open!) packaging.  Right on top when you open it is this month’s Glossybox Mag, and I must say I love the look on the cover!  Let’s take a look at the products I received…

This highly pigmented creamy pencil allows for easy blending with a long-wearing hold to create sultry eyes and sensuous lips. It's medium size tip allows for versatile use and strong application. 
I can’t help but be a little bit disappointed by this pencil.  I was so excited when I saw the Illamasqua packaging, but orange?  I have no idea what to do with it.  The pencil really is fabulous -so creamy- but I look horrible in orange!  I love the color Brooke received.  And it is full sized…

These decorative perfume sticks are perfect for travel or to throw in your handbag. The slender and elegant tube allows you to quickly dab on your wrists, neck, or cleavage without sticky fingers or goo stuck under your nails. Perfect for fragrant touch-ups throughout the day!
While I appreciate the packaging, I don’t have use for fragrance samples.  I am just too picky!
NUME STYLE ARGANICS BY NUME ARGAN OIL $59.00 for 4 oz. (I received 19 mL)
Achieve stunning and healthy hair with NuMe’s specialized non-greasy Argan oil that penetrates damaged hair cuticles leaving hair healthy from the inside out. This rich yet light-weight hydrating Argan oil reduces drying time in damp hair and prevents fading on color-treated hair. NuMe’s Argan oil is also ideal for dry and tired skin as a reparative moisturizer, soothing rough and ravaged spots from head to toe.

I really do love Argan oil.  I use it everywhere - under my eyes, dry patches on my face, my cuticles, you name it.  I am glad to have another sample on hand, but I kinda feel like the market is saturated by Argan oils right now!

Formulated to absorb quickly on the skin, this hand cream will leave your often neglected hands feeling soft and deeply nourished all day long. The cream incorporates organic raspberry seed oil, which provides a rich source of anti-inflammatory antioxidants and omega fatty acids that help to protect and restore the skin barrier.
I have never had a chance to try this brand, but the name sounds familiar.  Being a nail blogger I can NEVER have enough hand cream!  I have already used this a few times and it really does work well, almost as well as my Spa Wisdom Africa Honey and Beeswax Hand and Foot Butter from TBS!  However TBS butter is crazy expensive, I only buy it when it’s on sale.  Plus I can actually carry the Epionce around with me!

SKIN&CO. ROMA TRUFFLE SERUM $36.00 for 1.01 oz. (I received 0.5 oz.)
Developed in Italy, this light-weight serum works to prevent the signs of ageing by bringing together pure extracts of Tuber Melanosporum and Hyaluronic Acid. It works great as a boost to the cellular regenerative process thanks to the potent Panthenol B5. This cellular regenerative formula is rich in Peptides and ideal for any age and skin type. You’ll notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reduced and a more deeply hydrated revitalized looking you.

I haven’t tried this yet because I purchased some skincare during the Sephora VIB Event, but the description sounds wonderful!

Did you know that Glossybox is now customized?  Since I am a blogger receiving this for review, my box is rather random but if you sign up, you will be asked a serious of questions to help customize your box! 

**TIP – Make sure you review the products received in your GLOSSYBOX to receive 20 GLOSSYDots per review.  You can use these toward your own free box!**
You can also now send a Glossybox as a gift!  If you are already a subscriber, you can purchase a gift box for only $15, or 3 months for $60!  Perfect for the diva on your list that you are not sure what to get!

I definitely think this Glossybox was worth $21.  If you add up the three full size items alone it would have been $36!  I was sent this for review, but if I would have paid for it I would have been satisfied (orange pencil and all).  If you haven’t signed up yet but are thinking about, my referral links are below.  There are a few different subscription options:
