Mirenesse December Make Up Glamm Box

Saturday 8 December 2012

I'm a huge make up lover and am so excited to be able to get a beauty box filled with just make up. Don't get me wrong, I still love body, hair and skincare like any other beauty blogger, but make up is much easier for me to incorporate into my life. Skincare can be tough since my skin can be sensitive, but make up never lets me down (except most mascaras!! They always seem to smudge on me).

In my last post, I blogged about the December Skincare Glamm Box from Mirenesse. See here for details about the Glamm boxes and what's in the December skincare box. 

To save you from the boredom of me repeating myself about the glam boxes, lets get straight into what is in this months make up box.

Secret Weapon 24hr Eyeliner (4.5g)

In every box there will always be at least 1 full sized product (and between 3-5 products in total), and this is this months full sized product! This eyeliner is apart of their 24hr eye range, so you know it's long lasting and budge proof. I've never used this before, but am currently using the matching mascara and it's become my holy grail mascara. I can't wait to see how well this works. Considering it's been around for a decade now, it must be good! One of the best things about this, and the mascara is that you only need water to take it off and the mascara slides off so easily with no mess, but yet it's still smudge and budge proof in the day.

This is the limited edition packaging, and it has a cute "diamond" on the top of the lid. 

This retails for $35.95 or $31.96 for VIP members.

Secret Weapon 24hr Mascara (4g)

I already have a sample of this and have been using this for about 3 weeks now. Even though it looks small, it will last you about 3-4 weeks. This has become my holy grail mascara. I normally get smudging with most mascaras, but this one has been flawless. I'm glad to have another sample size as my current one is nearly finished and having a small version will be fantastic as I'll be living out of a suitcase for a week or two while we move interstate. 

This deluxe sample retails for $17.95 or $13.46 for VIPs.

Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine Mini in No.38 (1.5g)

I adore Mirenesse lip products. I've tried a few different formulas, and they're all fantastic. They are so moisturising, long lasting and there are so many different colours to try. These are a lip plumper formula but also contain vitamin E, which makes it anti aging too. The colour is unusual as it contains small pink sparkles. While it's not an everyday lipgloss, it's perfect for Xmas and the party season. This would look gorgeous layered over a plain lipstick to give it more personality.

This deluxe mini sample retails for $10.95 or $8.76 for VIPs.

Icon Sealer 24hr Concealer Mini (1.5g)

This is another AMAZING holy grail item from them that I've recently fallen for. When I first got a sample of this, I actually thought it was either an eye or lash primer because of the packaging (silly me!). But once I started using this, it was love at first try. I honestly don't think I'll use another concealer again. It's beyond incredible. I suffer with red pigmentation on my cheeks, and find either most concealers are too light to cover it or are thick and heavy and don't look natural. And while this is light, it covers my pigmentation amazingly. Sometimes I even skip the foundation and just use this. It has this finish that makes your skin glow. A lit from within glow, not sparkly or shiny. Just like I've been eating healthy and drinking bucket loads of water. 

You can use this as a concealer, an eyeshadow base or to conceal fine lines.

I already own a mini version and a full size of this, but am still excited about receiving this. It will go straight into my handbag for touch ups.

This deluxe mini retails for $10.95 or $8.76 for VIPs.

Absolutely Radiant Tinted Moisturiser Mini (5g)

I haven't used any of their foundations (besides a loose powder) but have been interested in them. I'm waiting to finish off a foundation or two at the moment, so I'm happy to have a small sample size to trial first. This contains organic macadamia oil to help hydrate your skin. I love tinted moisturiser for my days off or if I'm having a particularly great skin day.

This retails for $5.95 or $4.76 for VIPs. 

So even though I received 2 out of 5 products I already own, they are my holy grail products so I don't mind one bit. This has been $15 very well spent.

Overall there was $81.75 worth of value in the box or $67.70 for VIP members.

Do you think this box is worth the $15?


  1. I think this is a great box! I have been interested in trying the concealer. I have a mini of the lipgloss and it's definitely different, but I surprisingly really like it. I'm definitely leaning towards the make-up box now. Thanks!

    1. I'm glad it helped you decide Lu :) The concealer is incredible!!

  2. Hey!

    Loving your Mirenesse Reviews. I have been thinking about joining the VIP Club for a while now and my LustHaveIt Subscription finished last month so this is perfect timing.

    Can I ask, are you subscribed to both the $25 VIP Club and the $15 Glam boxes?

    1. Hi Peach,

      Yes I have signed up to both. I'm doing a 30 day autoship of both skincare and make up boxes for maybe 3 months, then will decide if I stay on or ditch it :)

  3. I used to get the Mirenesse boxes years ago, and it looks like they still send the same stuff over and over again. I have so many concealers and mascaras to open up my own shop!! LOL

    1. Hehehehehe I have a lot of those too. But I don't mind since I think I will need them for a very long time :) And the Mirenesse mascaras are one of the only ones I love, so I'm glad I've got 2 or 3 spares :)

  4. Thank you for sharing this, I am not sure if I will try out this box or not yet :) keep us updated on the months to come :D
