Douglas Box of Beauty December 2016

Better late than never right? I thought about not writing a review of the latest Box of Beauty from Douglas, but the content is just too good to not give it its 15 minutes of fame. The box costs only 12€ and you get one fullsize product and three or four luxury samples.




Benefit | They're real! Sexy on the Run Set | 35,95€

This kit was the main (e.g. fullsize) product from Douglas Box of Beauty December 2016 Edition. It contains Benefit's besteller They're real! mascara in black and brown (each 3g), Push up liner (0,36g) and They're real Eye Makeup Remover. The magnetic packaging is really cute and also contains a mirror and a few tips and tricks on how to do your makeup. I'm quite satisfied with mascara, it gives a nice amount of length and doesn't clump. I also like the Push up eyeliner. It's ultrablack and almost matte in texture. The silicone tip is really practical and quite soft. The only thing that bothers me with this twist up pen is the fact that product runs out when I'm not using the liner (not sure how this is possible though), but maybe this is happening only with this travel-sized version. The remover is an average one, nothing special to be honest. 


Guerlain | La petite Robe noire | Edp Intense | 5 ml | Price for 30 ml: 71,95€ 

I've talked about my endless love for Guerlain scent creations. I absolutely adore La petite Robe noire in all of its variations. This particular one is very intense as the name suggests. The composition is sweeter as the one from its predecessors. It contains gourmand floral notes such as Bulgarian Rose, Bergamote, fruity Blueberry, Cotton Candy, White Musk, Sandalwood and Vanilla. I tipically don't like sweet scents but I fell for this one, since this is definitely not a "cheap" kind of sweet scent. 


Shiseido | Rouge Rouge | Ruby Copper RD501 | 2,5 g | Price for 4g: 29,95€

Shiseido's Rouge Rouge lipsticks are described as vibrant, hydrating, long-wearing lipsticks. Ruby Copper is a bright, medium-dark ruby red with cool undertones. The pigmentation is almost opaque. Texturewise this is a very lightweight and smooth formula and very comfortable on the lips. Too bad I'm not a fan of red colour. 


Dole & Gabbana | Dolce Matte Lipstick | Dolce desire 643 | 1.7 g

This lipstick was an exclusive special edition Dolce & Gabbana gift. Although I'm not particulary fond of red lips, this is a beautiful and very flattering shade indeed. A dark berry-red with very cool blue undertones. It's very longlasting and when it finally starts to wear off you're left with a beautiful berry stain. The formula's matte but still very comfortable to wear and it doesn't dry my lips out. Oh, and it smells like Dolce & Gabbana "Dolce" perfume. 




All in all this edition of Douglas Box of Beauty was really amazing. The box is available on Douglas Austria website every 8 months. The next one will be available in February (the date is yet to be anounced). 

Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Najlepša hvala! :)
      Mislim, da sem v eni izmed objav že razložila, ampamk nič hudega; škatlica "izhaja" vsaka 2 meseca. Douglas, približno teden dni prej na svoji strani objavi, kaj bo glavni produkt in najavi imena znamk travel size produktov. Polovica naklade je dosegljiva za nakup dopoldan (5 minut pred sprožitvijo na FB strani objavijo, da so škatlice na voljo) in polovica popoldan.
      Iz moje izkušnje ti lahko povem, da jo največkrat sprostijo med 10 in 10.30 uro dopoldan, za popoldan pa okoli 17. ure. Je pametno biti takrat pred računalnikom, ker je ponavadi razprodana v minuti ali manj. Stane 12€, poštnina je brezplačna. Je pa tako, da pošiljajo samo znotraj Avstrije, tako, da moraš imeti tam naslov ali pa poznati nekoga, ki živi v Avstriji in ti jo naroči :)
      Tako, upam, da sem odgovorila na vse :)
      Ahja: nova škatlica bo dosegljiva proti koncu meseca,zaenkrat še niso objavili točnega datuma.

  4. Ja, sem videla kasneje, da si pri drugih objavah že odgovarjala na podobna vprašanja :D
    Hvala vseeno, da si mi odgovorila!

    Keep up with good work :D
