Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Time for the December 2011 Holiday Luxebox

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays! I hope yours was as good or better than mine :) Hopefully filled with lots of sweets, turkey, and pretty things :)

One of my treats I received was my Holiday Edition Luxebox for December.  It included Yves Roucher Rouge Dragee Lipstick (full-size) in 66 or 16085 Framboise Sorbet, Yves Rocher Malaysian Coconut Shower Gel, Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Perfume, Paco Rabanne 1 Million Eau de Toilette and NYX Slim Eye Pencil 901 Black (full-size). 

I've used NYX Slim Eye Pencil 901 Black as a back up in my makeup bag when I need to do a touch up.  It's a charcoal blue black that smudges a bit, however its a nice true black that works for evenings out.

I've been a big fan of Yves Rocher for over 10 years, so I was pleased to see a bottle of yummy Malaysian Coconut Shower Gel.  It smells like the coconut water I drink after I workout.  So lovely and only a little bit is needed.

Paco Rabanne 1 Million was actually my boyfriends gift last Christmas. I liked the idea of the gold brick packaging in the full size edition and loved the scent on myself. So a sample size for him is fabulous so he can take it around with him.  It's truly a fragrance that can wear the man if they wear a bit too much of it.  Sweet, spicy and a little musky, it is very much my man's scent. ;)  I've been wanting to get Paco Rabanne Lady Million for a really long time as well, although I kind of like the men's version a bit more.  It's a seductive floral that compliments the men's version.

Also from Yves Rocher I received the Rouge Dragee Lipstick in Framboise Sorbet. It is a subtle shade of raspberry pink. I had to look that up against the Yves Rocher website, given the item number on the bottom.  I found this particular shade to be creamy yet slightly sheer.  It reminds me of the MAC Lustre formula.  It is buildable to near full coverage. 

I must say that when I received the Luxebox, it seems like a sweet present from a good friend. Wrapped beautifully in the sleek and elegant black cardboard box, it includes a holiday card, a description card and a surprise chocolate coin all sealed by a personalized sticker.  I do like this last months edition and can't wait for the next one :)
