*UPDATE AS OF NOW: I’VE BEEN CONSISTENTLY DISAPPOINTED IN LHI’S SERVICE. Please click here to see my review of their terrible service & be aware!*
So I FINALLY received my Lust Have It! box about last week, which was half way through March already which was really annoying. It would have made it up if the contents of the box was somewhat good, however it was terrible, especially when compared to last months’ box. More so, I didn’t receive mine in the toiletry bag which is a let down because I was actually looking forward to having another and I had a missing item.
* For those of you who don’t know what Violet Box is, it’s a monthly subscription in which you pay $22.95 per month to get a box filled with 4-6 samples (full sized products aren’t guaranteed).
So I received this foundation which is way too light for me, as I normally am a medium and had that in my profile which is super disappointing. I also went on their facebook page and they were clearing this foundation off for $10, so this RRP is a bit misleading. Not to mention this smells horrible like plastic.
Natural Glamour Foundation in ‘Light’. RRP: $29.95.
The brush of this liquid liner is really flimsy so it’s hard to draw a precise line, don’t think I’ll be using this because I’ve got my Rimmel one which is, needless to say, much better.
Designer Brands: Liquid Eye Liner. RRP: $8.99
Probably the only item I am mildly excited about in the box which is a deluxe sample. It claims to ‘exfoliate the skin’s surface and inside the pores which improves skin cell turnover rate’. So will definitely try this out.
Paula’s Choice Skincare: Skin Perfecting BHA Liquid Exfoliate. RRP (of 30mL sample): $12.
We received an Ulta lip liner, which is a cheap, pharmacy brand in Australia. My lips are super sensitive and when I put this on stupidly, it make my lips sting after I removed it (note, I only kept it on for about 5 seconds).
Ulta: Plum Lip Liner. RRP: $3.
Lastly, I got an item which wasn’t even on the card which means I missed out on the concealer which was meant to be worth $27.95. The item I got instead is an airbrush primer which smells TERRIBLE when you spray it, I am definitely not going to use this as it smells like plain chemicals.
Natural Glamour: Airbrush Face Primer. RRP: doesn’t say.
Sorry for being such a negative nancy, but honestly this was a terrible box with cheap products and I didn’t even get the toiletry bag which would’ve been the best out of everything. Needless to say I have unsubscribed and do not recommend LHI to any of you guys now, they are so unorganised and their boxes are running about a month late with little communication to their consumers.
So I haven’t had a really good experience with beauty subscription boxes which is a shame :(, so I have unsubscribed to box LHI and Violet Box. Anyway, on a more positive note, how have all your days been! 🙂 Once again I apologise for the rant.
