Lust Have It - February 2013

I finally received my LHI box today, one week to go till the end of the month. This month, the items did not come in the "new collector box", as LHI could not fit everything in.

The first thing I noticed when I opened this box was "OMG Am I missing something?! Why are there only four items?" I pulled everything out, did a quick count, and there was indeed only four items. I checked the info card, and it seems like I'm missing a Kerastase Paris Nector Themique. :(

Anyway, I'm sure LHI will rectify this problem... Now to get on with what I received.

1. Summer Tan By Mancine - full size (RRP: $29.95 for 250ml)
I'm actually not sure how I feel about getting self-tanners. Whilst I think it's great that LHI has provided an alternative to getting skin cancer (i.e. sun baking), but I'm such a lazy person and I really cbf when it comes to self-tanners or tanning in general. I mean it's nearly the end of summer, and I'm as white as I were in winter.

2. Styli-Style L3 Timeless Lipstick - full size (RRP: $19.95)
A full coverage lipstick that is non-drying and long-lasting. I got it in the colour Unity, which is a hot pink shade with silver shimmer.


It glided on really smoothly, and when it took quite a good scrub under running water to get it off. Impressive!

3. The Natural Source Camouflage Colour Nail Lacquers - full size (RRP: $9.99 for 12ml)
Yay!! I love getting nail lacquers in my boxes!! I got this in "Lacquer Brick", which I think appropriately describes the colour of this polish. Although it's not a colour I'd normally purchase for myself, I still really appreciate getting sent nail polishes!

4. Lon Vitalie C9 Moisturizing Hand Mask - full size (RRP: $4.50 for 1 pair)
 Not sure how I feel about receiving a pair of hand masks either. I'm glad that I got the moisturizing one instead of the whitening hand mask, because I don't need my hands to go any whiter than they already are. But like I said earlier about the Summer Tan thingy, I'm such a lazy person, and when it comes to masks or self tanners.... I can't even complete the sentence because I'm that lazy.

That's all that was in my box. Overall, I'm feeling a bit "meh" about this box. There were two items out of the four that I like - lipstick and nail polish (even though the colours of both are not something I'd pick out for myself). Anyway, I'm off to write LHI an email... I want that Kerastase thingy!

What did you get in your LHI? Were you impressed?

EDIT: Was just brought to my attention that in the dispatched email, the item was not included because of weight restrictions, and that it will be included in March's box. Next question is... what happens if someone unsubscribes?! I'm not a very patient person, LHI! :(

  1. Poor form from LHI with being over shipping restrictions!

    1. I know huh! I would have thought they would at least factor in shipping restrictions when deciding which products to include!

  2. was really hoping the "tall, dark and handsome" FB teaser was going to turn out to be mascara... not self tanner. Unlike you, I'm actually tanned and as you've pointed out summer will soon be coming to an end - not sure that will see any use in my house. Looking forward to the lipstick and nail polish though... and what in the world is a 'whitening' hand mask?? hope I don't get that :P
    fingers crossed mine arrives tomorrow!

  3. Oh gawd I hope I don't get this box, self tanners always come off orange on my pale skin. After all LHI's hype if this is it, I don't think I want my box to arrive lol........

    1. That's the problem with hypes! You really get your hopes up and have such high expectations that you end up being disappointed :(

  4. I emailed LHI cause I unsubscribed.
    Just forward the dispatch email to support and tell them that youre not getting the March box but will still like the product.
    They asked me to email them next month and they will send the item to myself.

    Check out my blog. Should have my post up next week.

    1. Fair enough! I can't unsubscribe as I purchased a yearly subscription mid last year.

  5. Omg I can't believe they left out an item do to shipping! That's not very professional at all...

    1. They sent out an email to everyone explaining why they left out the smallest sample item this month. Reason was since this box included an item which was too big (fake tan), the box reached over the weight limit for shipping with AusPost, so they had to leave the other sample out but will include it next months' box.

    2. I still don't think it's professional. It just shows that they don't plan their products properly, as they didn't take into account product weights especially if they know that they have shipping weight restrictions.

  6. I was going to unsubscribe after this month too though I haven't received my box yet ... but if I get the same items as you I won't be that impressed. So sick of receiving tanning products! And I would very much like the Kerastase product so I'll be emailing LHI like Jaci..

  9. Aww it sucks that you're missing a product - hopefully they will send it to you soon!
    This box is actually not that bad compared to others I've received - I'm praying I get the same lipstick colour you got. I usually get an awful brown shade!

    1. They're sending the missing item with March's box. Hopefully it won't go over the shipping weight restriction again.

  11. I must say I prefer the shades that you got!

    I'm really not a fan of the colours I recieved, particularly as I've been getting the same sort of brown shades in the last two boxes as well!

    Not happy, Jan!
