Our December bellabox theme is Summer Glow, and we’re packing your boxes with gorgeous prods to see you shining your way through the party season! Two products we know you’ll love, and which you’ll ALL be receiving either a cream eyeshaow or lipgloss, are from our friends at Gilded Cage – a glamorous Aussie-owned, Italian-made cosmetics brand.
First up, there’s the Revelation Eyeshadow, valued at a massive $38! This clever shadow is a cream-to-powder formula that dries quickly for 14-hour budge-proof, crease-proof wear. Perfect for those long summer days and balmy nights!
We’re sampling three versatile shades with a slightly metallic sheen: Vander Pink, Metallic Sage (green) and Metallic Mahogany (bronzey brown). You can apply in a number of ways: straight from the tube with the applicator, onto your hand and then fingertip for a smudge of colour, or with an eyeliner brush for an ultra-fine line. Use as a base colour or highlight hue – they’re great for blending and act as a primer for additional shadow. (Note: Use an oil based make-up remover as this long-lasting formula really stays)
Plus, they’re enriched with Carthamus Tinctorius oil, algae and orchid flower extracts, so they treat your eyelids as well!
Second up, you could score a Charisma Lipgloss, valued at $28. These luxurious glosses feel lovely on the lips, and have a flattering sheen which helps hide the appearance of any fine lip lines. Aside from that, they smell ah-mazing!
We’re sampling in Aurora, Cheeky Fuchsia, Shimmering Coral, Mirror Mauve and Natural Shimmer. They’re all flattering pinky shades that are perfect worn alone, or layered over a lipstick for a more pigmented finish.
With a thicker, velvety texture (but not super-tacky), the gloss is enriched with Aleurites Molucanna seed oil (kendi oil) to soften and smooth the lips. So pucker up, bellas!
