Holiday season is here and my bank account is running dry. All my rupees are being spent on Christmas, New Year, and birthdays. It’s like everyone in my family conspired and decided that they are only going to have children born in December. I love wintertime and Christmas, but I am running out of ideas of what you get everyone. To avoid family politics I try and buy everyone the same thing. I do this so no one feels like they are getting gypped by getting a ‘worse’ present. You would think people would be happy with anything they receive, but that sadly is not always the case. Moving on, shopping for the women in my family is the absolute hardest thing. I usually get them all perfumes or gift cards. This year I am going to surprise them all with makeup! What woman does not love makeup?! I didn’t just want to get them a lipstick or a highlighter. I want to get them something fun, with an element of surprise. Then it clicked while I was scrolling through Just4Girls.pk’s instagram – gift a GlamBox.
If you are not familiar with the GlamBox allow me to introduce it to you. Just4Girls launched it in May 2017, so just a few months back. The GlamBox is a monthly subscription box that contains all the hottest makeup items from affordable to luxury. The first box that I ever ordered contained a variety of 5-6 makeup and skincare items all for just 3,000 PKR. The price might sound steep but it was totally worth it. You get all the brands you love, ranging from mini to full-size for such an affordable price. In my first ever box I received: mini Clinique mascara, Crabtree & Evelyn lotion, full-size NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, Yes to Facemask, full-size Lancome lipstick and two different sample size perfumes. The retail value of the GlamBox I got received was way over 3,000 PKR. I could have not been happier with the products. I was able to try out such cool makeup that I would not have been able to before.
When I was finally wrapping my head around the amazing GlamBox, Just4Girls then launched GlamLUXE. All I can say is, WOW! The GlamLUXE was dropped from heaven by the makeup gods. It works exactly like the classic GlamBox but contains mostly full-size cosmetics and skincare products, but the best part – it’s only prestigious brands. The catch here is the LUXE box costs 5,000 PKR. Which is still an exceptional price for all luxurious brands such as: Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, NARS and Bobbi Brown, just to name a few. I know if I get this for my mom for Christmas she is going to be so ecstatic.
I have made my final decision. All the ladies in my family are going to get either the GlamBox or the GlamLUXE. This way each one of them gets to indulge in some fine cosmetics and feel glamorous for the holidays. I was also thinking if they don’t like one of the products they got in the subscription box they can switch it with someone else’s in the family.
