Lust Have It June 2012

Hello!

Lust Have It June edition! I was really looking forward to this as this is the first official Lust Have It pack after the switchover from GlossyBox to Lust Have It. Lust Have It used to send out same products for all subscribers. This month onwards, they’ve sent out packs according to the person’s age profile. Mine was the Fun and Flirty pack that came in a purple make up bag.

1. LonVitalite – 24K Active Golden Yulan Oil Facial Mask RRP 5 Sheets $59

First Impression: I’m a big fan of facial sheet mask. I’ve never heard of LonVitalite before, but judging from how much it costs for 5 sheets, it is quite a pricey mask to own. 24 K active gold, I wonder how it looks like.

2. LonVitalite – 24K Active Gold Full Eye Mask RRP 5 sheets $45

First Impression: Along with the facial mask 24k Active Gold series, I also got the Eye Mask. Never had I used an eye mask before, so I’m quite curious about how it would work on the skin

P.S. With both the LonVitalite Mask, there was a note saying that the product contains active ingredients that will be cooling, invigorating and stimulating on the skin. If you have sensitive skin, run the pack under warm water and this can balance the tingling sensation.

3. Batiste – Blush Dry Shampoo RRP $9.95

First Impression: I’ve always heard people saying a lot of good things about dry shampoo and how it is a god sent items for lazy people. However, I’ve never tried one before. This is quite a good size sample and I look forward to playing around with it. I’ve seen rather good reviews with the Batiste brand, so I’m quite happy to get my hands on this.

4. Bloom – Glitter Eyeliner RRP $14.95

First Impressions: My favourite item from this June pack. This glitter liner has micro glitter particles and is rather pretty in real life. The glitter liner I got is Stargazer which is a pretty midnight black colour with multi glitter. A very wearable glitter liner for a night out I must say.

5. Marc Jacobs – Daisy Eau So Fresh and Daisy RRP 75 ml $115 and 50 ml $90 respectively

I’ve known of these two perfumes for the longest time and I believe most people have too. Between the two perfumes, I prefer the Daisy Eau So Fresh more, as it is a very light and fresh(as the name suggest) . The bottles of both the perfumes and to die for. I think Marc Jacobs do really nice perfumes with packaging worthy to be displayed as an art piece. I think samples of perfumes like this is very handy. I always have one in my bag for emergency purposes.

Overall Impression: I’m pretty in between with this June pack. I like the glitter eyeliner. The dry shampoo is not an item I would get for myself as I’ve never tried anything like this before, thus, I look forward to trying the dry shampoo. With the facial mask and the eye mask, I don’t know how I feel about them yet. The fragrances are okay, but I would really prefer them to give maybe 2 of each perfume instead of 1(this is me being slightly greedy). Overall, it is an okay box,

Lust Have It May 2012

Hello!

As the title suggest, this is an overview of the Lust Have it Beauty Subscription Services for May 2012. This is probably old news, but last month, Lust Have It had actually acquired GlossyBox Australia, so there was yet another shift. Yes, note, another shift. Long story short, I used to be a member of BeautyBox, then GlossyBox took over it and then now Lust have it. Its sad that GlossyBox is going or should I say gone now,  cause I really really adore their boxes. GlossyBox’s packaging for their products “was” impeccable. However, I hate to admit but the products that GlossyBox had delivered was a far cry from being amazing. Now that Lust have it has took over GlossyBox, I’m really hoping I see a change in the products I’ll be getting.

The first box from Lust Have It that I have with me right now is quite good, if i may say. Out of the 5 products that I have I am pretty satisfied with 3 of them.

This box is apparently for the once “GlossyBox” subscriber, thus, the items I got was a little bit different from the usual Lust Have It subscription. Mine was the “Fun and Flirty” box, which include:

1. Showface Professional Eyeshadow RRP $22.95

First Impression: I was going to do a swatch for it, but the colour just doesn’t show up on my skin at all. I could even use this as a setting powder if I need to as the colour just blends into my skin and disappear. The packaging feels like cheap plastic as well. Not the best colour selection for me.

2. Lush – Dirty Soap 100g RRP $6.95

First Impression: I love it! From the description card,
Dirty: Will have you smelling deliciously of spearmint, sandalwood, pine and oakmoss.
Definitely something that I would purchase myself. I love how clean and not overpowering it smells. Definitely something that you and your guy could use together.

3. Nicole by OPI ultimate trend setter’s lacquer 15ml RRP $14.95

First Impression: The one I have is a beautiful purple shade. However,I  was disappointed to see that this nail polish is not as opaque as I would like it to be. I need a total of 4 coats to get to the ideal opacity for me. To add on, the nail polish starts to chipped on me after 2 days. Thankfully, the nail polish does not apply streaky.

4. Chloe L’Eau de Chloe 30ml RRP $80.00

First Impression: Very fresh, a day time scent I would say. I haven’t really wore this perfume for too long to find out I like it yet.

5. Biore Pore Uncloggin Scrub 141g RRP$10.99

First Impression: I used this before I really liked it. I don’t really know whether it does unclog my pores or not. But my skin does feel fresher after using this product.

Biore Triple Action Toner 250ml RRP$8.99

First Impression: The bottle is the cutest thing ever. A really size sample for travelling. But then again, this is a drugstore product that….. I have the means to buy one myself. So… do I need this sample?

Biore Combo Pore Strip 14 strips RRP $10.49

First Impression: This is also one product that I’ve used before as well.To be honest, I have a love-hate relationship with it. It is very liberating when you pull out the strip from your nose and see all the gunk that came off with it. However, this strip is a pain in the ass to take off. Its like have a bikini wax, but for your nose. So, if you have a good tolerance for pain, I suggest you try this out. If not, just do the usual exfoliation will suffice.

All in all, I really think this a a pretty good box in general. Plus, it comes with a pretty cute make up pouch as well. I have a feeling that the pouch will be something they will be doing quite consistently which lead to one last question. Do you need that many pouches?

Love,

Vinci
