Luxebox Fall 2012

As I have mentioned before, Luxebox switched from a monthly subscription to a quarterly service. I’m sure anyone that was an existing subscriber was waiting wearily to see if the change was going to be a good one or if it was time to unsubscribe. Surprisingly, their Fall 2012 box totally blew even my favorite box (Glossybox) away as GB seemed to be going downhill a bit recently.

The ravamped packaging brought the word “luxurious” to mind. Instead of the square boxes most of the rival companies had, they switched it to a rectangle one. I really liked the company’s name stamped inside in gold lettering. Instead of tissue paper to wrap the items they used a cloth. Another improvement that I’m impressed by is that they put multiple items that are the same or the exfoliating pad into pillow boxes to keep them organized and clean!

Vichy // Proeven Daily Dark Spot Correcter

[[ VICHY introduces the exclusive melanin targeting DeeperCell-ConcentrateTM, combined with LHA, Vitamin Cg and Vitamin E. It acts on all surface layers of the skin and reduces the look of excess melanin. ProEVEN has a powerful triple-action: 1. Instantly reveals a more radiant glow 2. Evens skin tone 3.

Full Size: $44.00/30mL || Received: $11.00/1.5mL x 5 (7.5mL)

I’ve tried a line from Vichy before so I’m curious as to how this one will turn out.

Eyeko // Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

[[ Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner defines the eyes with vibrant colours minus the smudges. This pen-like style eyeliner is easy to use, which helps you create flawless lines for subtle or dramatic looks. ]]
Full Size: $18.00/0.07oz || Received: $18.00/0.07oz (FULL SIZED)

I’m actually really excited that I got this!! I’ve seen a lot of raves for this product so I’m glad they gave us this in our box!

Benefit // Stay Don’t Stray

[[ Keep your eye makeup in place all day by using Benefit’s Stay Don’t Stray primer. This dual-action power primer works 360 degrees around your eyes to help your concealer and eyeshadow stay put. The primer will also keep your eyes hydrated and minimize the look of fine lines with Sodium Hyaluronate properties while fighting signs of aging with Vitamin C & E. ]]
Full Size: $30.00/10mL || Received: $7.5/2.5mL

I’m already using Urban Decay’s Primer Potion so I’m curious to see how this stands against it. My friend purchased a set that had this I think and the formula separated after awhile, if I’m not mistaken ::blink::.

Madonna // Truth or Dare Eau de Parfum

[[ Truth or Dare by Madonna is a contemporary and sexy reinvention of a classic, robust signature white floral. This scent is timeless yet modern, simultaneously dark and light. With a blend of narcotic florals, woods, vanilla, and caramelized amber. This scent stands out from traditional floral fragrance with a contemporary edge. ]]
Full Size: $65.00/50mL || Received: $3.90/3mL

I know most people don’t like fragrance samples because they can be free to obtain. I just wanted to note though that I was surprised by the size of this perfume sample! I mean it’s not a mini bottle by any means, but it was fun to see a small test tube inside haha!

Loose Button // Exfoliating Pad

[[ Our body deserves a lot more attention than we think it needs. Use this Loose Button Exfoliating Pad once a week to cleanse your skin and unclog your pores. Follow up by applying your favourite body lotion to seal in the moisture and keep your skin feeling baby soft! ]]

Kind of weird how they put in items from the beauty box company. Glossybox did this too, but they gave a lipstick…

China Glaze // Adventure Red-y (On Safari Fall Collection)

[[ Step into the Fall season with China Glaze’s newest “On Safari” collection. Rock these colours on your nails to complete your new Fall look. ]]
Full Size: $7.00/14mL || Received: $7.00/14mL (FULL SIZED)

I have no idea why I keep getting pink and red every single time I get nail polish!! I hate those two colours as nail polish unless the pink was a light pastel pink or something. I don’t see how either of those colours are in ::swirl::. I actually already have a red from China Glaze but it’s a glittery one. From my experience China Glaze pretty much only requires one coat so I’m sure if colour was actually one I like I would love this.

Moroccanoil // Luminous Hairspray

[[ Luminous Hairspray is formulated with a combination of highly sophisticated ingredients infused with argan oil. This lightweight and workable hairspray offers a long-lasting, flexible hold, without leaving a sticky residue. It is ideal for creating and maintaining soft, natural styles. It can be brushed out easily without weighing the hair down and provides a reflective shine shield that fights frizz and humidity. ]]
Full Size: $22.00/330mL || Received: $5/75mL

I rarely ever use hairspray, but I do like the other product I’ve received from Moroccanoil before so we’ll see how this goes.

This box is worth approximately $52.4 with 3 full sized products, although I don’t know if the exfoliating pad from Loose Button really counts as one haha!
However, I like that they included full sized products from Eyeko and China Glaze.
