1 August 2016


Today ,the 1st August the July Lust Have It Box arrived. Yes, late, but Lust Have It has openly communicated this delay, so I feel this is fine, also it is really just by a few days.. Here's what was inside and my thoughts... 

As per the last many many months, this month's contents arrived in a mesh bag, only this month it's black, which is a nice change. However, as I've said a few times now, yet again with the fear of sounding a little repetitive, I'm starting to not know what to do with these, and would love to see an alternative. Well, now on to the contents..

Teeez Cosmetics Desert Metals Mascara - Full Size (RRP: 32.50)

This mascara contains silk proteins to nourish and protect the lashes, and promises a fuller flirtier look. This sounds great, and as I've enjoyed the Teeez Cosmetics products from previous boxes, I was excited when I saw this... But... Unfortunately I got the shade Sapphire Nights which is a dark blue shade, and sadly I'm just a little conservative (and probably too old too), to wear a shade like that. What a bummer.

Mprincess Mineral Blush - Full Size ($15.45 / 1.2g)

Yay, new brand I've never heard off before, which is always exciting. This is a tiny pot of loose minerals and at first sight I actually took it for a loose mineral eye shadow. But it is supposedly a blush. I got the shade Peach Fuzz, which is an orange shade with golden sheen. And although it appears quite bright in the tub, it does blend out to more of an apricot/coral shade which is quite lovely. I am however not that fond of the high sheen/glitter, so unsure how much I will actually use this one. Bummer again!

GOSH Mat Duo Eyeshadow - Full Size (RRP: $14.95)

I grew up in Denmark using Danish brand as a teenager, so it is a bit of a blast from the past getting this eyeshadow duo. I liked the brand, which I'd rate quality wise in the same category as L'Oreal and Revlon, and I've always wondered why it has never made it to Australia. I got this eyeshadow duo in the shade Dusty Purple, which contains a dusty lavender shade as well as a darker dusty aubergine shade. Both shades are really lovely - but again, sadly, conservative old me rarely reach for shades like this, but rather neutrals, so yet again, unsure how much this one will get used. Particularly upset this one is not in my ideal shades. Bummer yet again!

Essenzza Fuss Free Naturals The Masquerade Artisan Mask Series - Full Size (RRP: $4.95)

This sheet mask contains cherry blossom to repair the skin's natural barriers to promote a smooth, supple skin, while the argan oil helps leave the skin silky smooth and moisturised. I love that these masks are using natural preservatives and are free from parabens, and sulfates. The idea with the masquarade print on the mask is also very cute, although the suggested 'fun girls night in' is no longer applicable for me with two little toddlers! I do look forward to trying this one out, just need to find the required 20-30 minutes to kid free to actually relax while trying it out.

Ardell Self-Adhesive False Lashes - Full Size (RRP: $?)

These lashes are classified as a mystery item picked by the Lust Have It team, so I appreciate that it is very random which product you'll get. However, sadly for me, I just don't like false lashes. I am hopeless at applying it, and my nights are spent sans-makeup on the couch snoozing, exhausted from chasing around two little boys all day.

So there you have it, the contents of the July edition of the Lust Have It. Unfortunately, due to personal preference I am a little disappointed this month, as essentially I will actually only use the sheet mask, when I can find the time! Valued at just $4.95, it is hence really not worth its cost for me this month. I do appreciate that it is difficult to accomodate everyone's tastes and preferences, - I don't know if I'm particularly picky or conservative, but unfortunately for me, I just feel that I was unlucky all around - such a shame as I would have loved the GOSH eyeshadow had it only been in different shades, and likewise the mascara and the blush.

Fingers crossed next months edition will be hitting preferences a little better.
