What I Say:

As per pervious months, this month the goodies again arrived in a pink see-through mesh bag. Unfortunately it didn’t contain the information card, which I always find extremely useful, so I do miss having it. Anyway, these are the products in bag; 

Glam Manicare Express 3 in 1 – Full Size


This is a nail art pen that as well as containing a glittery gold nail polish, also contains some large silver and gold glittery flecks as well as 10 different stencils. I am not personally fond of the gold shade or the glittery, but I do love the stencils, so I will definitely have to try them out. But in general this is such a great idea for clumsy girls like me that has absolutely no idea when it comes to nail art!

ModelCo Lip lacquer Liquid Lipstick in Fire Red – Full Size

This is a combination of a lipstick and a lipgloss. It has some serious pigmentation packing a big punch with its bright red shade, yet it is lovely and glossy. And it has a gorgeous fruity scent too. I am not normally wearing such bright shades, but I have already tried it out, and love it. And I love that it really does have a long wear, and when it starts to fade, it still leaves a nice red stain behind on the lips. And if you don’t want the intense colour, you can also just dab it on for a nice stained look.

Urban Skincare Co – Repair + Body Balm – Sample Size, 35ml


A new brand I have never heard of before, and it is Australian made and owned, which I always love. YAY! This body balm contains minerals of calsium and magnesium and enriching coriander oil and smells absolutely divine. It has a lovely light consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin leaving it feeling velvety smooth and soft.

There was also a card included giving you free shipping and 20% of your next order, and I am so in love with that cream that I can definitely see myself checking that out…

The Cosmetic Kitchen Macadamia Wax Cr̬me Highlighter РFull Size

This highlighter comes in the shape of a lipgloss, even with the angled opening to make applying easier. It is slightly thick, yet it does blend out nice and evenly, leaving a nice and subtle sheen on the skin. My only issue is that the slightly gold shade could have been a little lighter to match my skin tone, but give it a month or so, and I will probably start having a bit of a summer than, so it should be fine. I look forward to testing this one out!

Uriage Soap-Free wash for Sensitive Skin for Face and Body – Sample Size, 8ml

I have not tried many products from Uriage so I do look forward to trying out this cleanser, even in spite of not having sensitive skin, so it doesn’t really match my skin type. My only issue is that the sample is so small, if you are supposed to also be able to use it on your body, you can hardly wash yourself with it, that’s how small it is.

ModelCo – Various sachet samples x 4

Finally there were also four samples of ModelCo’s newly launched skincare range. The samples include Exfoliating Cream Facial Scrub, Instant Miracle Booster Skin Brightening & Firming Serum, Double Sided Facial Wipes, and Soothing Moisturiser Day & Night. I am generally a little over sachet samples, and would naturally have preferred to see a larger sample or two, so you can try the products for a few go’s, but on the other hand, guess the sachet samples allow you try a few more of the new products. Regardless, I do look forward to trying out these out.

So there you go, the contents in the September issue. Overall, I am sadly not extremely impressed. I do like the inclusion of in particular the ModelCo Lip Lacquer and understand that regular subscrbers have been able to pick their preferred shade, which certainly is a great bonus. Also I like the Body Balm from Urban Skincare Co., but sadly other than that, I am a little underwhelmed with the other products, although in terms of value it still makes up for the $20 spend. Fingers crossed next month’s box will make up for it.

  1. I'm personally not a big fan of beauty boxes because I'm always left disappointed.
