Happy holidays everyone! I hope my greetings isn’t too late though. This season really was filled with surprises. Well, for one, my mom surprised us by coming home after 2 years abroad – we honestly didn’t have any idea that she was coming so we were stunned to see her at our annual family reunion/Christmas party. Count that and a whole lot of surprise gifts and you’d probably imagine how my last week went. Oh, speaking of surprises, I also got another package from the BDJ Team before the last-minute Christmas rush. It’s none other than their December Box, of course! πŸ™‚
This month’s box was again exclusive. You guessed it! This time around the box was Maxfactor-exlcusive. I was so thrilled when I saw the black exterior sleeves with the brand’s logo that covered the BDJ Box. If I’m not mistaken, I believe I haven’t tried anything from Maxfactor prior to receiving my December Box. Looks like I’ll have a chance to check “Try Something New” off my next year’s list then. *wink!
As usual, the December Box came with their BDJ’s inspirational trademark stickers. And the quote couldn’t be timelier, too, especially now that imitations and copy-cats could not be prevented. These stickers would be a nice and subtle reminder to just be yourself. πŸ™‚
More about the contents of the box after the jump. πŸ™‚
Creme Puff Pressed Powder in 41 Medium Beige (Php575, 21g) – “Creme Puff Pressed Powder is a classic, all-in-one compact powder that was originally made for movie stars but now, we can enjoy the multitude benefits of this open Hollywood secret. It provides perfect coverage, a luminous glow and a natural finish to the skin.” 
Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation (Sample size | Php 925, 30mL) – “Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation provides a long lasting finish through its clever “hold, correct and finish” technology. It has a high coverage, matte finish that sits comfortably on your skin because of its flexi-hold formula.”
Kohl Pencil (Sample size | Php 425, 1.2g) – “With a new advanced formula for easy application, this creamy Kohl pencil blends easily to give you a soft, natural look. It is also long-wearing, so it won’t fade or smudge on your eyes once it has set.”
Masterpiece Max Mascara (Sample size | Php 695, 7.2mL) – “Masterpiece Max Mascara contains an amazing formula that provides 400% more volume on the lashes without the clumps, giving you big, bold and dramatic eyes.”
Glossfinity Nail Polish in 145 (Php 245, 10mL) – “Glossfinity Nail Polish has flair and glossy finish that promised to last for up to 7 days. Ah, perfect for the BDJ 7-day challenge!”

Earth Spirits Eyeshadow in 108 Inca Bronze (Sample size | Php 445, 3g) – “The Earth and Spirits Eyeshadow is an ultimate everyday eyeshadow that gives you a light, silky texture. It’s very versatile because it can create a subtle day look for the office or a dramatic and sexy look in the evening.”
Colour Collection Lipstick in 510 English Rose (Sample size | Php 595, 3g) – “Max Factor Colour Collection lipstick contains rich ingredients such as shea butter, green tea extract and vitamin E. Moisture is locked in and the lip color lasts for hours. When applied, it looks and feels good on my lips.”
And a little extra – Focus/Finish Forget-Me-Not List Journal (Php148)
That’s 8 products (5 samples and 3 full-sized products) worth a total of Php 968 excluding the deluxe samples. Price-wise, this month’s BDJ Box did not disappoint for like always, the contents are worth more than the monthly subscription fee of Php 580. But to be honest, I was kinda expecting more given that it is after all the holiday season – it’s the best time to be generous. πŸ˜€ That said, this Maxfactor-exclusive holiday box is still not that bad. I can totally see myself using 2 or 3 of the products here. πŸ™‚
