There were no boxes this month. Instead, everything was placed in a bubble wrap bag and wrapped with a paper containing information of products in the bag.
I personally don't mind this at all if there were no breakages (and there weren't any). I have a ton of lust have it boxes, and although I'm "recycling" them as storage containers for small items such as nail files, I still have some empty ones that I have no idea what to use them for.
At a glance, I was quite pleased with the products given to me this month. Makeup product, check! Nail polish, check! No stupid sachets (besides recoverlyte, but you can't really package it in anything else), check!
1. Bloom Secret Weapon Concealer Kit in Medium/Dark - full size ($20 for 5.5g)
I was initially annoyed that I received a product that I can't use as it has Medium/Dark shades, however I applied a bit of the "Dark" (or maybe it was deep) shade and it wasn't too bad when blended into bare skin (it's the top right shade). It's surprisingly creamy too. I'm looking forward to trying this!
2. Klara Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lips - 1.2ml (RRP: $29 for 8ml)
Unfortunately, I got a shade that I wouldn't use. This is shade 06 Vintage Burgundy. Pigmentation is fantastic (see swatch below) and lasting power is to die for. I love that it stains, as I hate reapplying makeup throughout the day.
Although it's a gorgeous red, it's not a shade that I'd wear. I only wear nude-pink colours. I think I will be throwing this as a freebie the next time someone buys something from my blog sale, as it's only been swatched on my arm.
I tried removing it with a wet wipe after letting it sit there for about 10 minutes. I scrubbed quite roughly and there still was a visible stain. I'm impressed!
3. Chapstick Strawberry Lip Balm SPF15 - full size (RRP: $4.69 for 4.2g)
Good ole' chapstick. There's not much to say about chapstick. It's a good product to have, as even the husband can use it when he gets dry lips especially since winter is coming.
4. Aveda Intensive Hydrating Masque - 7ml (RRP: $79.95 for 150ml)
I thought this masque was quite interesting, as I was expecting an opaque masque but instead squeezed out a translucent gel that feels cool and refreshing on my skin. It has a soft, subtle herbally smell, which is great if you're like me and aren't into the herbally fragrances that most Aveda products have. Since I don't have dry skin, I'm thinking this might come in handy when my skin reacts to self tanners and flares up in rashes (see rant here).
5. Recoverlyte Tropical Powder - 8g (RRP: $11.95 for 10 sachets)
I giggled when I read "late night... vigorous activity". I don't use powders such as this, so I'm unsure if I'll ever use it. I'm just far too lazy (and always forget) to dissolve a sachet of powder into water.
6. Orly Nail Lacquer - 5.4ml (RRP: $18.95 for 18ml)
Overall, I'm quite content with this month's Lust Have It "box". However, this isn't enough to make me want to renew my subscription, as there were far too many boxes I wasn't satisfied with over the past 12 months.
What did you receive in your Lust Have It box? Are you happy with what you have received?
