Lust Have It - January 2013

I'm so glad I couldn't sleep and woke up about an hour early today because the postman brought me my Lust Have It January box this morning!

I'm actually not sure what the theme (or if there is even any) is this month. But from the info card, this is the start of a new collectable box series. And I have to say that the box that all the products are kept in is gorgeous! Well done, Lust Have It!

So what's in my LHI box, you may be wondering...

A WHOLE HEAP OF GOODIES! I was impressed when I saw this! I thought YAY! Someone listened and put more cosmetics in! Lust Have It has finally beaten BellaBox (in my opinion)!

1. Nude by Nature BB 5-in-1 Miracle Cream with Natural Sunscreen for Light Skin Tones - full size (RRP: $19.95 for 50ml)
"Perfect for the busy girl who likes to keep it simple! Nude by Nature's BB 5-in-1 Miracle Cream combines the best in skincare with the best in make-up to give you 5 benefits in one lightweight application - Hydrates, Radiates, Corrects, Perfects, Protects." - Nude By Nature

This was the first item I saw, seeing as it's the biggest item in the box. I am SO excited to use this and am so so so happy that LHI has given me the right shade! I'm quite pale at the moment because I haven't been able to catch some rays, so I'd imagine that this would be the perfect shade for me!

2. Amuse Nail Lacquer in Sunshine Yellow - full size (RRP: $13.95 for 18ml)
Second thing that caught my eye. I'm not sure about this bright neon yellow polish. I don't know if I'll ever wear it to tell you the truth. Although I do appreciate receiving nail polish in the mail! I'm also undecided if I like the bottle packaging thing... The diamontes kind of makes the polish bottle look a bit tacky, but that's just me judging a book by its cover.

3. Face of Australia Bronzing Loose Powder - full size (RRP: $12.95 for 20g)
SCORE! Another cosmetics product! Lust Have It, I LOVE YOU! Even though I don't use bronzing powder in my makeup routine, I think I should since I'm ridinkously pale. I actually haven't got many many Face of Australia products, so I'm glad to have received this.

4. Lust Have It! Kabuki Brush - full size (RRP: $19.95)
If you've read my current favourite brushes post, you might know that I've been getting into kabuki brushes lately. I think it's great that LHI has included this brush, as it can be used with the FoA bronzing powder! It also feels really soft!

5. GKMBJ Lactic Hydrating Shampoo and GKMBJ Fortifying Honey Creme - 30g each (RRP: $19.95 for 280ml each)
Another product that suits me! I have dry hair and these two haircare products sounds perfect for me. Although I'm not sure if the Fortifying Hair Creme is a conditioner or a leave in conditioner of some sort... Neither the bottle nor the LHI info card provides enough information, but I guess a bit of detective work via Google might be able to solve this mystery!

Overall, I'm HIGHLY impressed with this month's LHI box. I love that there are lots of cosmetics in this box, as I'm getting a bit sick of getting skincare products. I also am so happy that the items in my box seem like they have been chosen based on my profile on LHI! Well done (again), LHI!

What did you get in your LHI? Are you as impressed as I am?

  1. Wow! What a great box! I was thinking of resubscribing when I saw what I thought was the Lush emotional brilliance range but I didn't because I'm trying to stop buying things I don't need.
    Just a warning, the bb cream can be really temperamental, but its great when it works!

  4. I always read people's beauty box type posts and I've never been impressed - except for this one. It has such great products and I can't believe they are full sized! The Nude by Nature BB cream looks great.

    1. Yeah! I think this month's LHI beats last month's Bellabox despite the (overpriced) Savoir Faire palette.
