I had to quit it due to uni - it just wasn't financially viable when I was getting better quality from Violet Box.
Ignore the marks on the card - I was using it for stamping when I had friends over.
Lipstick in a very pretty colour. Its a blue-toned rose with a hint of duskiness.
I'd wear this.
NYC Ultra Last LipWear
Full Size: $18 (3.4g)
Huh. Another lip product.
This looks like it would be a gorgeous lip gloss, no?
Not so exciting when swatched.
It has a chemically sweet smell, and is some variety of berry. I think if I got right down into the guts of it, the colour might mix better. It's also really sticky, which won't work for me.
NYC Kiss Gloss
Full Size: $15.50 (9.4ml)
This has to be the 3rd MOR hand cream I've gotten in a decent size. I'm not complaining. This stuff smells AMAZING. I think I would like more MOR.
I like Argan oil. I like the smell (it's very floral and relaxing). I've been using it a lot at the moment because its winter and cold, and my hand creams are getting a really big workout.
MOR Correspondence Argan Oil Handcream
Full Size: $35 (75ml). Sample: $13.99 (30ml)
And they're so small!
I'm not sure why you would give people foundation in a sample box. There is no possible way of matching the right skin tone. I would of loved a larger sample of the primer, and maybe a voucher for a colour matched sample of the foundation, because not everyone is a beige.
Dr Lewinn's Skin Perfect Primer & Foundation
Full Size: $45.90 (30ml). Sample: $5.22 (4ml primer, 4ml foundation)
Makeup pads are useful. Do they really belong in a sample box? This is a waste of usable space in the box. A sample pack of maybe 10 pads with a voucher would of been better.
My photo failed. So have a google image.
Swisspers Cotton Makeup Pads
Full Size: $5.69 (80 pads)
And the most RANDOM item in a beauty sample box:
I will never use them. This is a waste of space in a box. A voucher for U products would of been a lot more useful.
U by Kotex Designer Series Tampons
Full Size: $5.50 (16 Tampons)
Total cost to me: $29.95. Total "value": $63.90.
Total USE to me: $37.68.
The lip gloss is too sticky for me to use on a daily basis.
I will never use the tampons.
I will not use the primer/foundation (there is no way to really even tell if there is a good match from a 4ml sample). I can walk into a high-end store and get a colour matched sample from every stand there for free, and the samples would be a lot more volume.
Thats $25+ worth of stuff just... going to waste. That's a WHOLE ANOTHER BOX!!
I would of loved:
- More Angel or Salon Sorbet.
- Something from Lush (lemony flutter, a face product (cleanser or scrub) or a soap/bath bomb)
- Eyeshadow in a shade other than brown.
- Something chocolate.
- A perfume roller-ball.
- VOUCHERS! I can get far more value from a product company (like swisspers or U or Dr Lewinn's) if I can pick my remover/feminine product/makeup colour.
So Goodbye to Goodie Box.
Thanks for the last year or so of service - some have been good, some have been not so good.
Once I get outta Uni, I'll see how you're going and maybe pick it up again.
