Birchbox For December 2015

My December Birchbox came in around the 15th this month.  I had either missed or not recieved the sample choice email so my I had no clue as to what I would be getting.   

The box for December's Birchbox, 2015.

The box for December's Birchbox, 2015.

The box for this month was a nice white and silver holiday pattern.  I have liked almost all of the boxes that Birchbox has sent out since I have started recieving them.  I used quite a few over the holidays to wrap presents in, wrapping a square box is so much easier than trying to wrap squishy items!

The theme for the month of December was - 

'All Wrapped Up'

'No matter how many years go by, we still get a fizz of excitement around the holidays.  Family traditions, twinkly lights,piles of beautifully wrapped presents...the anticipation is half the fun!  This holiday, feel free to open one gift early-your December Birchbox.  It's filled with beauty treats picked just for you, all wrapped up in a cozy-chic holiday pattern. 

In December's Birchbox I recieved -

Mirenesse Mattifinity Lip Rouge - Velvety color with a modern matte finish.  No need for llip liner, this stain stays put.  I recieved the shade 'London', which is a deep red.  I have never worn red on my lips before, nor have I heard much about this product.  I will maybe give it a try on a day when I am not going anywhere!

Costal Scents - styleEYES Eyeshadow Palette - formalEYES - A bold, beautiful eye shadow palette in always-fashionable pinks and mauves.  The 2 shades I recieved are very 'me' kind of shades so I will probably give them a try.  I have read many good things about Coastal Scents eyeshadow formula.

Salon Giojé - Keratin Protein Mask - Formulated with pure natural keratin, this mask repairs your locks from the inside out.  I have not heard/read anything about this hair mask, I will let you know what I think about it once I have had a chance to try it out.

Benefit Cosmetics - It's Potent! Eye Cream - This brightening eye cream fades dark circles and boosts skin's elasticity over time.  I have been interested in trying out this eye cream for quite awhile so I am quite happy to have a decent sized sample to try out.

amika - Perk Up Dry Shampoo - Weightless spray in thebrand's signature Obliphica scent that refreshes hair sans residue.  I have already tried out this dry shampoo from the Sephora Favorites-Extend Your Style set that I picked up before Christmas so I won't say to much about it, review is coming sooner rather than later!

I also recieved a coupon in my December Birchbox for $10 towards any $35+ purchase in the Birchbox Shop.  I would have used this but you can't combine it with any other offers so I don't think you can use it if you are cashing in your Birchbox points.

Not a bad end of the year box from Birchbox, I will use almost everything in the box this month.  There are 2 products that I was very happy with getting and only 1 that probably will not get much, if any, use of.

Did you get a good December Birchbox?  Did I miss anything by not being able to take advantage of Sample CHoice for December?  Or was there even an option for December?
