The April Lust Have It Box arrived yesterday, so once again on time, which is always nice. Here's what was inside and my thoughts...

Yet again this months’ products arrived in a pink mesh bag, and as I've said a few times now, while I don't mind those bags, but have so many of them by now that I'm starting to not know what to do with them, so really I'd love it if Lust Have It changed the style again for a bit of a variety. This months bag included four full sized items as well as two deluxe sized sample.

Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Eyeshadow - Full Size (RPR: $25)

This pearlised powder claims to be a multi-tasking product that can be used both as blush, highlighter and eyeshadow. The shade, Fantasy, is a beautiful warm apricotty shade, which is really lovely, and I can actually see myself using this as an eyeshadow. It does have a bit of sheen, so I may personally find it too shimmery for that use, however, regardless still happy about it, also because Manna Kadar is new to me, and its always exciting trying out new brands.

Marsk Organic eyeliner - Full Size (RRP: $28.95)

I really like the products from Marsk, however, and I've already got two eyeliners from them from other subscription boxes, although these are dark brown, and I do really like them. However, while I will be using this off-white eyeliner to good use on the inner rim of my eyes, I am sadly just not very excited about it!

Marsk Organic eyeliner - Full Size ($28.95)

Another product - while, again I do like the products from Marsk, for the variety of things, I would have preferred to see a product from another brand included instead one of the Marsk ones. That said, I do like a good brow products, so do look forward to putting this one to the test too. 

Personail Nail Polish Wraps - Full Size (RRP: $18)

I've never heard of this brand before, so bonus points for the inclusion! This small pack contains 16 nail polish strips, a cuticle stick and a mini nail file, and they promise that the wraps will last up to 10 days on the nails. The design I got is a kind of random pink/blue/yellow/green/purple swirly one, and being a little conservative, not one that I'd usually go for, but as the say, change is as good as a holiday, so I look forward to seeing how they turn out. 

Soak Shampoo and Conditioner - Deluxe Sizes, 25ml each (RRP: $24.95 / 500ml each)

Sadly again, these are repeat samples for me from a previous sample box, and while I think these products are lovely, and smell absolutely delish, sadly there is just no novelty factor there for me.

So there you go, the contents of this months Lust Have It. Value-wise this box is definitely worth its money, but unfortunately, this month I'm just not that excited about the contents, because of repeat products and brands. While I will use all products, the only one I am really excited about is really the Manna Kadar product!

I appreciate that it can be tricky to continuously source new products and brands, but to me, essentially that is what beauty subscription boxes are all about, the opportunity to be exposed to something new you'd otherwise never have found or bought yourself, and unfortunately Lust Have It didn't really hit the mark for me this month. I have my fingers crossed that next months box will be again!
