Again another beauty box I am very late in posting about as it arrived while I was overseas. So without further ado, here are my thoughts on the *September edition of the Violet Box;

What They Say: 

Violet Box brands promises to every month include 4-6 premium beauty and lifestyle samples from well-known and trusted Australian beauty brands as well as exciting new International brands, one in particular is a revolutionary product currently trending in New York and has been featured in Vogue and on the Today Show!

RRP: You can subscribe to Violet Box for:

1 month – $22.95
3 months - $66.00
6 months - $130
12 months - $250

- Available from Violet Box

What I Say:

As last month, this month’s box arrived in a the new box design with the lose slide lid, and this is what was included in this month’s box:


Scandalous Fabulously Flirty Dry Shampoo – Full Size ($17.95/150ml)

This Dry Shampoo promises to give your hair that just washed look, cleansing the scalp, leaving the hair fresh and shiny. I have never heard of this brand before, and as a big user of dry shampoo (although I’ll be the first to admit that I was very late in discovering the benefits!), I am looking forward to trying this out.

Folt̬ne Nail Treatment РFull Size ($29.95/10ml)


This is a Nail Treatment product that promises to repair dry, brittle dull nails that easily break, leaving the nails stronger and longer. It can also be used over nail polish as a strengthener which is a great bonus. I generally have quite strong nails, so I honestly don’t really need this right now, but a few times a year my nails suddenly start to play up, so it will be handy to have at hand.

Girlactik Eyeshadow – Full Size ($23/2.5g)


Another brand that I have not previously heard about, so I do look forward to trying this out. I got the shade ‘Pink Ruffle’ which is a medium pink shade with a pearlescent finish. My initial thought is that it has a very good pigmentation, so I can’t wait to put this one to the test.

Starlooks Ultra Olive Gem Pencil – Full Size ($21.50)


This eye liner has been created with a magnificent sparkle finish and is soft and creamy so it can be used as both eye liners as well as eye bases. I got the colour Ultra Olive, which as the name suggests, is an olive green shade, which has a glittery finish. I am not personally that keen on glittery products, but I do like both the colour, and the creamy and pigmented finish of this pencil, so I look forward to trying it out.

Polished London Nail Enamel – Full Size ($8/10ml)

I have previously heard Polished London , but never had the opportunity to trial any of their products, so I like the inclusion of the polish in this month’s box. The polish promises to provide a strong film that offers greater gloss, extended wear and maximum protection of the nail. I got the colour ‘Just Dusk’ which is a dusty rose shade.

So there you go, the contents in the September Violet Box. Overall I am very impressed. It contains5 products and they are all full sized. I probably wouldn’t have purchased the pink eye shadow, the green eye liner, but rather have chosen other shades, but then again, sometimes it is good to be put out of your comfort zone. The nail treatment I doubt I would have purchased either seeing my nails are in a pretty good state. But even so, I feel that this box is extremely good value for money. I love that Violet Box manages to continue to introduce new brands and products and that that is always such a great variety of products from skincare through to makeup and hair care. And of course I love that the products are full sized, as I seriously have enough of those more or less useless sachet samples floating around the house!
