11 November 2014


On Friday the 7th November my Lust Have It October Box arrived. A week well into November. I thought the boxes were intended to be out my the middle of the relevant month, and not some two to three weeks later – and well, if that is the intention, it really means that the November box should arrive at my door step within the next week to 10 days…. Somehow I doubt it, but time will tell. Personally I cannot actually complain too much as the boxes are sent to me for consideration, but if I was a paying subscriber I would certainly not be happy – but still, I as I always try to be as honest as possible with my reviews, and the service is a major part of the beauty subscription boxes, I just had to make my comment regardless! Anyway, here are my thoughts on the October 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:

As per previous months, this month the goodies again arrived in a pink see-through mesh bag. Last months box/bag unfortunately didn’t contain the info card, but luckily this month’s box did, which is great as I find them very helpful. Anyway, these are the products in bag; 


Montaigne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Mask - Full Sized (RRP: $4.99)

I have tried quite a few of these face masks and generally really like them, so certainly no complaints about the inclusion of this one. And as I have only tried their standard mud masks, I do look forward to trying out this cloth mask that has been infused with clay.

Colour by TBN lipstick in ‘A Kiss is Still A Kiss’ – Full Sized (RRP: $3.50)

When I first saw this lipstick I thought it was one from Maybelline!! But rather is a more budget brand costing just $3.50 – and that said, sorry, but it doesn’t really excite me that much. The colour, though, is a lovely dusty brownish rose shade, which is quite wearable.

Glamourflage Eye Mask – Full Sized (RRP: $7.95)

This is a sleep eye mask with a leopard print. Quite cute, but to be honest I don’t really know what to do with it as I never use an eye mask.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse – Sample Size, 10ml (RRP: $24.95/50ml)


I already have a full sized bottle of this oil, and have used up a couple of bottles before that, which proves that I really like this body oil that both nourishes dry skin and helps with stretchmarks, all while smelling amazing. So getting the sample is certainly a bonus, and it is a rather cute sized one too. Wish I had had this when I when I recently went to Europe!

So Susan Intense Eye Shadow - Full sized (RRP: $35)


This compact contains four grey/blue/purplish shades and is quite lovely, but sadly I am not really that fond of using those shades, I am a more conservative nude kind of girl, so it is a little wasted. However, it is a gorgeous palette, and I am sure I have a friend who will be absolute ecstatic if I pass it on to her.

Inika Organic Black Kohl Pencil with sharpener - Full Sized (RRP: $29)


I always use either a black or a dark brown eyeliner, so this is a great addition, plus I haven’t really tried that many products from the brand Inika, so I do like that too. In saying that, and now this may just be me being a little harsh, but I find that eyeliners is one of those staple makeup items that sadly it doesn’t really excite me, regardless of how great the brand it is! I would have been more excited to see any other makeup product from the brand. But again, using eyeliner every day, it still definitely won’t go to waste, plus I do really like that it has the in-built sharpener in the lid.

So there you go, the contents in the October box. Unfortunately, like last month, I am sadly not extremely impressed, although it is definitely an improvement over last month – and I guess the reason why I am not overly impressed is more down to personal makeup colour preferences, so as mentioned previously, if Lust Have It could manage to custom make their boxes, it would be so much more likely to impress. So that said, I am sure that there are others who find these products to be their perfect matches. The products in the box do have a combined value of over $85, so in that respect it is value for money. I hope the November box ticks a few more boxes for me, and hopefully it will actually arrive in the month of November!!

  1. I've never heard of So Susan? I don't subscribe, but I would have been happy with the eyeliner and clay face mask. A bit cheap of them to include a lippie like that though? I guess it's pot luck. Hope your next box is awesome!

  2. wow! I think it's a nice box to get variation of everything!

  3. Hi, I think you should update your review to point out that some people are STILL waiting for the box. After all, your readers might subscribe based on your recommendation and it's not right that they get the impression that your relatively speedy delivery is the norm.

  4. This company is terrible. They are constantly late and lie and stall about why when you ask why. The samples themselves are fine, but with more companies offering much the same thing, what will distinguish the good ones is service.
