December WonderBox

♫ TVXQ - 이것만은 알고가 독백 (Before U Go)

Look what arrived just in time for Christmas!

Yes, it's the December Christmas edition WonderBox! Isn't the ribbon bow and tiny golden wand pretty? I can definitely feel the Christmas vibe from it, hehe~

December 2012 Christmas edition WonderBox
Since it's a Christmas edition, I already sorta guessed that the ribbon would be red with green or gold accents. Bingo! :P (No prizes for guessing right though, lol)

Product info card and vouchers
Brochures and vouchers
As usual, once opened, you will see the info card along with some brochures and vouchers inside. This month, they included an Empro embroidery services RM100 voucher, a Jantzen Salon 30% off voucher, and two O.P.I. Color Culture service and package vouchers.

December's goodies!
This month's edition is extra special because instead of the usual 5 items, you get 6 in your Wonderbox! Now, on to the items~

Empro Brown & Black Mascara (full size)
An effortlessly lightweight 3D mascara which comes in brown and black. Its anti-clumping and long lasting effect makes it suitable for all-function wear including on false eyelashes and eyebrows.
I've read many reviews on this mascara, and I like the idea of having 2 shades in one tube. I wonder if anybody has used it on eyebrows before, and what the result is like? XD

Clinelle Eye Bright (15ml - full size)
Improves firmness for all skin types. Helps reduce the appearance of eye bags and dark eye circles.

This is probably a sign that I need to start using eye creams already. T__T

Clinelle Purifying Toner (30ml - travel size)
Increases skin moisture instantly. Soothes and calms your skin while reducing oiliness.

I've been skipping toner in my cleansing routine lately, so I guess I'll try this out to see if it suits my skin.

Kérastase Masque Chroma Riche (30ml - travel size)
Leaves hair soft and glowing with radiance,  revealing intensity and depth of colour, while hair fibers are protected from external aggressions. 

Kérastase Bain Chroma Riche (30ml - travel size)
Leaves hair moisturized, supple, disciplined and protected against external and dullness with added shine.

I have always wanted to try Kérastase hair care products, but their prices are really quite steep. Let's see if they work as well or better than my current Essential shampoo and conditioner. (`∀´)Ψ

O.P.I. Shatter Nail Lacquer - Gold (15ml - full size)
Inspired by graffiti art, OPI Shatter leaves behind a crackled, two-texture finish when painted over any dry OPI hue nail polish.

I admit, I wasn't a fan of the "cracked" nail polish trend at all, but after seeing this particular gold shatter, my mind straightaway went to the Christmas staple red + gold combination, and I'm quite liking it that way. 

First test: Purple base + gold shatter
I tried out this combo on a couple of fingers, and I must say it looks pretty cool. Purple and gold, such royal colours eh? :P

Second attempt: Duochrome amber/red base + gold shatter
This is what I currently have on my nails, and I really love the effect! Due to the duochrome base, the crackled effect is quite subtle unless you take a closer look. (♥‿♥✿)

I'm happy to say that I'm really pleased with this month's WonderBox, as it has a good balance of skincare, hair care and cosmetic items. The cheerful red ribbon definitely gives it a festive vibe, perfect for Christmas and gifting to friends and family. :)

i've got the cleansing bar instead of the mascara. i would prefer to have the mascara to try tho :X. gosh! u got gold OPI! i got blur :X any idea how to match?

LauraLeia said...

I like the mascara but I think I would get more use out of the cleansing bar! LOL (Wanna swap? :D)
Hmm... I think blue would go well with a light base? White, pale blue, yellow, orange, something like that? :)

Super love how they wrap the box with Christmas theme :} The purple and gold sure look classy! I have the black and blue cracked ones, sometimes they are a bit hard to match with other colours :s

Magic Chic said...

I love how they wrapped the beauty products in a holiday-like present box. The gold crack polish looks great over dark colored nail polish like purple. Nice combo Laura :)

LauraLeia said...

İzdihër: Yes indeed. :) I always feel so happy looking at the bow on the box. XD

Angeline: Aiyo >__< Nvm, subscribe to next year's box! :P

Hilda: I love the ribbon bow, but I kinda prefer the shredded packing paper. I'm really thankful to have gotten the gold one TBH because I don't like dark polishes. =/

Carolyn: Hahahaha! The December box was sold out really fast coz they announced that it would be really good. Subscribe for next year's one so that you won't miss out! :P

dunia kecil indi: Aww thank you! Merry Christmas to you too~ ^^

Magic Chic: Yup, it's like opening an early Christmas present. :D Thank you so much for the kind words! :)
