Little Known Box | December 2017 Festive Edition Review*


Hands up who's a top tit and even though it's only the first day of 2018 is already epically behind on their blogging schedule? That'd be MEEEEEEE

The epic sh*tstorm that was 2017 kinda scuppered my life, organisation and game plan in every damn department [you can read and lol more at the utter catastrophe which was my life last year here] ... so I'm still playing catch-up with the blog posts I'm behind on; and generally just continuing living as the worst human / blogger in the land RN. New Year, New... new SAME Levels Of Knobhead over here.

A fair few of these overdue posts are reviews of the ever-so-erotic monthly Little Known Box edits. Which I feel totes bad about, because LKB is one of my favourite subscription services of all time ever and I unbox these bad boys every month pure desp to share them with yous [in a review sense, mind... hands off ma makeups xoxo] and then boom, all of a sudden I end up in hospital for weeks at a time & smacked off me tits on medicine.

Pls bear with me whilst normal service resumes on the blog, but in the meantime [if you just conveniently overlook the fact there's a couple of months missing RN] I just really bloody wanted to stop by today & show you the latest Little Known Box to arrive with me via ma boy Paul the Postman - their December 2017, Festive Edition*. Cos it's dead fit and I've been posting bare spoilers on Insta of some of the products inside anyway over the last few days because I just can't contain myself okay

Eco Glitter Fun Glitter Eyeshadow, Travel Size

ERMAGHERDDDDD how cute is this pls?! This glitter is the perfect choice to include in a festive beauty box edit... a beautiful blend of green, red and gold; it encapsulates everything Christmas is about. And it's just hella amazing tbf - as well as eco-friendly & biodegradable. I can't wait to create some sparkly looks with this - keep your eyes peeled!

Ooharr Face Masks, Travel Size, 2 x 15ml

I'm a big fan of Ooharr products - I've used many of their face masks in my time. Lawd, I sound like a proper pensioner. I love the bright, fruity & zesty packaging of these bad boys and imagine they'll smell fit AF when I have a little pamper sesh with them. I like that two are included in this month's curation; one for you and one for your bezzie, as you sit and drink wine & gossip in your PJs before your girl's night out.

Saturated Colour 'Colour Switch', Full Size

NOW THIS IS AN EXCITING INVENTION! I love trying out new things & experimenting with products that encourage you to get a bit creative with makeup, and my baes Saturated Colour have created this fab lip product to help you do exactly that. 

Basically, you apply this base colour to your lips first; before applying your regular lipstick over the top... and they then mix to create a totes new shade. This sorcery means that there are potentially 454256 new colours for me to discover from the comfort of my own home & using purely my own lipstick collection. Science I like. None of this mixing sh*t in test tubes and petri dishes - I'm talking lipsticks, on me mouth, selfies galore.

Did a little test here and everything didn't I, so you can see how it works for yourself. You can totes see the difference that applying the same lipstick [Charlotte Tilbury's Miranda May, fyi] normally to the skin vs over the top of my new Colour Switch has - and I'm loving that pale pink hybrid tbh! 

I can't wait to use this more, it's a super exciting product to discover. The only downside to this product is that I personally don't like the way it smells. So don't have a whiff and just use it instead - remain blissfully unaware of this fact and you'll be golden.

Saturated Colour Set of 3 Mini Lipsticks

Wow. For minis, these Saturated Colour lippies don't half pack a punch! Just look at them swatches - how unreal are they?! Every single lip product I've tried from this brand has outsurpassed every expectation I've had for it in terms of colour pay-off, formula and pigmentation - and these minis are no exception to the rule. What a bloody great brand and a sh*tting fantastic trio to find in ya beauty box.

I've really enjoyed unboxing and trying out this month's Festive curation of LKB. The lipstick products and cute little glitter pot are the highlights of this edit for me I think - they're the perfect products for use over Christmas and New Year; and super fun to experiment & play about with.

I also proper love the fact that despite being a special wintery edition, this month's Little Known Box boasts tonnes of products with bright pops of colour in them or incorporated into their packaging design. This totes remind me of Spring / Summer and fresh starts; which makes me super hyped because I am sooo not about this cold weather & never will be [pls see this post for a reminder of why. And lots of swearing, obv.]

Have you tried any of these brands before? What do you think of December's Little Known Box? If you fancy getting a slice of the LKB action, don't forget that code NEW10 will knock 10% off the cost of your order; making an already FIT AF experience even fitter!
