a tale of 3 boxes, the golden box

Now we have come to the second box – The New Year Box – the golden box with stunning black wrapping inside and a glittery ribbon. The box looked so exclusive – I’m a sucker for anything beautiful wrapped or packaged. The packaging is so important for me.

I will let the box talking to you and working through the products now. All products are in retail size – full size.

Nail Inc– Nail Polish, Cambridge Terrace, 10ml
£11.00/116.00SEK/$17.70/€13.40
London based company that has probably the best nail products on the market in my eyes.
Cambridge Terrace nail polish is a silver liquid metal shimmer shade – nothing for me this shade, now on its way to a girlfriend in Gothenburg.

MODELCO – CHEEK + LIP tint Rosy Red, 10ml
$24.00/157.00SEK/£14.90/€18.20
CHEEK & LIPS is a lightweight, dual purpose cheek and lip tint that delivers an instant and natural rosy glow to suit any skin tone. The gel formulation glides on smoothly, leaving the perfect amount of sheer color for naturally flushed cheeks and a lightly stained lip. This product really gives natural cheeks, but it’s easy to apply too much. A very small amount is needed, haven’t used for the lips.

Kryolan Professional Make Up – High Gloss Catwalk, 4ml
$18.00/117.80SEK/£11.15/€13.65
High Gloss is a newly developed lip gloss with special pearl pigments based on Mica providing the lips with extraordinary radiance. With High Gloss, the lips become the focus of each make-up. I got the shade Catwalk – and it ‘s a bit to strong for me plus it don’t feels comfortable for me to wear and bit too sticky for me. A perfect gift to a perfect girlfriend.

BM Beauty– Lash Thickening Mascara, 8ml 
£12.00/126.50SEK/$19.35/€14.65
BM Beauty is a British company and their mascara infused with minerals and contains a blend of nourishing oils and waxes. Also contains beeswax, sunflower oil, vitamin E and rosemary leaf extract. And it’s cruelty free. Not tried the product yet. The mascara has got very good reviews.

NYX Cosmetics – One Night in Morocco, eye shadow palett
$15.00/98.15SEK/£9.30/€11.35
The price here is from NYX website, but in Sweden the price is 2 times more, 369.00SEK. A US brand that started in 1996 with HQ in Los Angles and with their European Office in Stockholm.
For a matte smokey look, this makeup set is perfect for you! Comes with 8 eye shadows, eye shadow base and 4 lip colors in a little pull – out compartment. This is the smokey look kit in one sexy and sleek package! Checked on their website and the product is sold out and that I can understand. Personal I LOVE IT!!!

The box also contained a golden little make up bag – something that always come handy for something when travelling. Too small for my makeup, even if I don’t use a lot.

I paid for my exclusive New Year’s box 229.00SEK/$35.00/£21.70/€26.50 and what I understand it had a total value of 1012.00SEK/$154.65/£96.00/€117.15 – haven’t added it up personal. Very pleased with the products and to have pleasure to open up its exclusive wrapping. Bring on more boxes like this, please!

For music cloud have I chosen one of my all-time favorite, “Band of Gold” with Freda Payne, that goes all the way back to 1970.  In 2004, Freda Payne’s “Band of Gold” was voted number 391 in Rolling Stonemagazine’s listing of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
