Lola Beauty Box December 2017 Review
This month features hair, skincare, and makeup products. Let’s check it out:
Each box comes with a card detailing the brands and items included along with the prices and websites for each. This month’s theme is “Winter Lola Land”.
Tarte Cosmetics Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint in Goals – Retail Value $20.00
Oh, Tarte! I love Tarte. And, I’m actually thrilled that they included a glossy lip color instead of the super popular matte version. This is a great rosy nude that goes on with the impact of a lipstick but the sheen of a gloss. It feels comfortable while wearing and keeps my lips moisturized for a couple of hours.
Rituals The Ritual of Dao Soothing Night Balm, 2.3 fl oz – Retail Value $17.00
Ugh! The dry weather has my hands feeling chapped and cracked. This balm is the perfect fix. It is thicker than a hand cream and feels soft and velvety when it soaks in, not greasy like a lot of balms. It has shea butter in it to help heal and protect skin. Is it weird that it acts as a primer for hands? It really does make my hands look smoother with less fine lines. And, the light floral scent is divine.
Laritzy Nue Nude Eyeshadow Collection Palette – Retail Value $36.00
Twelve shades are included in this nude eyeshadow collection. There is a mix of shimmer and matte shades that fall into the warm brown category. The colors are buildable and the shimmer shades are especially velvety in texture. It takes a few passes to really get high color impact from these shades but that doesn’t really bother me. I like the size of this palette, but it kind of looks like it is missing a mirror.
Hairgurt Smoothing Yogurt Hair Masque in Strawberry Banana, 4 fl oz – Retail Value $11
I’m admittedly not a fan of banana. Actually, I hate it. So it’s a good thing this hair mask smells more like strawberry candy! It has a thick creamy texture that is easy to work into wet hair. My hair is curly and frizzy but it felt smooth, soft, and my curls had great definition after using this. I always appreciate a good hair mask and I like the inclusion of a hair treatment product this month.
Crown Brush CRG1 Deluxe Tapered Powder Brush – Retail Value $17.99
This is a big, fluffy brush perfect for applying powder. The synthetic bristles are so soft and don’t shed. I like the way the handle feels too. It’s matte with indentions for a comfortable grip.
Here I have a mix of shades from the eyeshadow palette which I really like. The fact that not a lot of product goes on with one layer works well for me when my skin is lighter in the winter and I’m going for a more natural look. The lip paint is the perfect glossy nude for my lips. Love it!
The Verdict: This is another great month from Lola Beauty Box. I love the lip gloss and the night balm is great for the cold, dry weather we have been having. I have been hoping for a powder brush too! Everything is full sized and with a value of $101.99, they come through on their promise of at least a $70 value. That is so great for a $21 box that always introduces me to new types of products and brands. I also enjoy the mix of hair care and skin care among the makeup items.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, the December and January boxes are sold out. If you sign up today, your first box will be the February box.
