If you haven't been living under a rock lately, you will already be aware that Boudoir Prive collaborated with Joliebox from France and have now merged their very similar parisian chic services and are all geared up to provide deluxe beauty samples.
Boudoir Prive will now be called Joliebox from now on however and everything else will remain the same besides the fact that Joliebox's brands like By Terry, Benefit, Laura Mercier, Essie, Lancome, L'occitane will also be included in the box.
I got so excited when I heard that as we hardly have such niche high-end brands being included in beauty boxes. This would be far more useful than having unknown brands being featured in these boxes as this will give us an opportunity to try out luxury brands at a modest price of £10 per box.
Here's December's Joliebox.
So my personal favourites from this box are Mitchell and Peach Shower Wash as it has a very typical English Rose scent to it which I adore.
The OPI Nail Lacquer in Gold Shatter is quite unique and perfect for the festive season. I know Barry M and quite a few other drugstore brands do such gold shatter alternatives but this is for all you OPI fans out there.
New Kid I-Gloss is quite a pretty nude pink that I suppose would be universally flattering on all skin tones. This is full size and retails for £15 which is more than the price of the box itself.
Ooh and not to forget the flat shader eye shadow brush from Joliebox itself. I don't know why but its always so exciting to receive a brush in a beauty box, regardless of how many others of its kind I may already have.
I hope more beauty boxes include stuff like make-up brushes, primers, make-up fixers, shatter/magnetic nail paints etc as that way they are sure to maintain excitement amongst consumers and also keep up with recent trends.
I personally am on the fence with this one. I am wearing it with a mauve base below but it looks much better over nudes and classics like black and white as they don't clash with its glamour.
Are you happy with Boudoir Prive collaborating with Joliebox? Or are you sick of beauty boxes already and wish they disappeared completely in 2012?
