PRODUCT REVIEW - LUST HAVE IT - MAY 2014

It has only been about three weeks since the April Box arrived, and yesterday, the 27th May, the May Box arrived at my door step – so here are my thoughts on the May Lust Have It Box; 





What They Say:

Lust Have It boxes regularly contains products worth $60+ for only $19.95/month! Monthly box filled with 5 to 6 premium beauty samples. Delivered to your home or work each month for you to try.


RRP:


Lust Have It Box (monthly) RRP: $19.95, Eco Box (quarterly) RRP: $29.95 – but if you use my unique code LIFESTYLE at the checkout on the Lush Have It website, you are eligible for $5 off your first box from Lust Have It, and at the same time you’ll also be supporting Beauty & Lifestyle Hunter, as I will get a few dollars too if someone subscribes using this code. 
Available from Lust Have It 



What I Say: 
Last month’s box arrived in a clear makeup bag, and I was under the impression that would be the new style for a while, but obviously not, as this month’s box arrived in a plain black postage box! I am really not complaining or too fussed about this as I have so many of those boxes floating around now – but Lust Have It must have felt bad about it, as they had enclosed a card saying that the cosmetic bags are still on the way to them, and they didn’t want to delay the boxes so ‘in place of the new packaging , they’ve included a $20 gift voucher for you to redeem against any of their subscription boxes other than the women’s box, or on the Chloe Morello and Bridal Boxes, where you may actually use it once time on each of those products if you like….’ Big tick of approval Lust Have It, that is a lovely gesture, turning a delay into something nice!






Taking a break, off to check out the other boxes.. and you can too, right here


Back again....So this is what was in the May Lust Have It Box..

 




Mary Kay Lip Lacquer in Pink Pagoda – Full Size (RRP $22/4g)




This lip lacquer promises intense high shine lips with a smooth jelly finish and a stay-true colour. It also promises to moisture the lips, and stay put. I really like Mary Kay products (and recently went to one of their product launches which you can read all about here), so I am quite excited about this lip lacquer, and I love the little retractable lip brush that comes with it. The Pink Pagoda is a bright Fuchsia shade, and it is a little on the bright and bold side for me, but it is good to be pushed out of your comfort zone from time to time!

 

Coral Colour Eyebrow Definer Pencil in Dark Brown – Full Size (RRP: $7.95)





I know what a difference it does when I do my eye brows, but when I am in a hurry, it is the last thing on my mind – but I do like the sound of this, as it promises to blend easily and be long lasting too, so I look forward to testing it out.



Appelles Rosemary Body Bar – Full Size (RRP: $4.95/100g)




I have to be honest and admit that I am not the biggest fan of soap bars – I simply find them messy after a while and hence much prefer liquid soap. But this soap does smell quite nice, supposedly of rosemary, although I detect a bit of a citrusy scent too. And I love that it is made with certified organic ingredients that promises to cleanse the skin without drying or stripping the skin, while helping to reduce epidermal stress – so I may just have to put this one to the test.



The Cosmetic Kitchen Pure Mineral Blush in Strawberry – Full Size (RRP: $34.95/6g)





I have really taken a liking to mineral makeup lately, so I applaud the inclusion of this full sized one from the Cosmetic Kitchen. I love that it is highly pigmented, and talc and bismuth free. I got the colour strawberry which is a lovely dusty rose shade, which is really wearable, so I cannot wait to try this one out. My only criticism is that the jar is difficult to open, and as loose minerals can be rather messy, it can easily turn into a right mess trying to get the lid off!

 

Sasy n Savy Vitamin Enriched Facial Recovery Masque – Sample, 20ml (RRP: $50/100ml)




This mask is intended for normal to oily skin types and claims to deep cleanse and draw out impurities, and as I’ve had a few breakouts lately, this is perfect timing, and perfectly suited to my skin. And such a nice change to get a treatment product than a moisturiser suited for dry skin that I am unable to use, so I cannot wait to give myself a mini facial testing out this mask!


So there you have it, these are the goodies in the May Lust Have It Box, and I am quite happy with the contents, as I will actually be using every single product, although the soap bar doesn’t excite me that much, but as that is also the cheapest item, it doesn’t bother me too much! I in particularly really like the inclusion of the full sized Mary Kay Lip Lacquer and the Cosmetic Kitchen blush, as well as the Sasy n Savy mask – so all in all, I find that this is a great box, which is well worth its value.
