Once again I am a bit delayed in sharing my monthly Lust Have It box. The postie carded my parcel on Monday but I wasn't able to pick it up until today - I hate having to pick up my parcels, why can't the postie just buzz my number and deliver it?!
This month's box wasn't anything too spectacular but everything but one was full sized! Great thing is I will definitely end up using all the products in this box which I believe is a first. LHI had three sneak peeks on their Facebook page but I did not receive any of those products - why LHI, WHY!
So which products did I end up receiving?
Gosh Cosmetics - Mono Eye Shadow
Full size - RRP $16
I received this in the shade 010 Light Brown and I am quite surprised at how expensive this little thing is. This is a really lovely neutral colour with a hint of shimmer and satiny texture. I had some difficulty trying to swatch this as it matched my skin tone quite well so I've heavily swatched the product in the photo below.
Nude by Nature - Nude Papaw Ointment
Full size - 30g RRP $5.95
With winter coming up this is an excellent product to keep in handy to maintain moisturised lips and skin. The great thing about this papaw ointment is it's petrochemical-free! This will definitely last me quite a while considering I have so many lip balms lying around that I wish to finish first.
75ml sample - 300ml RRP $20.95
I think if a beauty box ever decides to hand out a conditioner sample, they should give out the shampoo as well! While not everyone uses conditioner it is a essential for everyone to use shampoo. As I've complained about receiving so many shampoo and conditioner samples in the past which turned out to be great, I will give this a chance as I have not heard anything about this product.
Pink Tiger - Duri Cosmetics Nail Tools: Steel Cuticle Pusher
Full size - RRP $15.60
This is a great item for nail lovers like me however I already own a steel cuticle pusher which costs less than half the price if I remember correctly. However you can never have too many of these to create nice nails!
Ocean Essence - Platinum Silver Face Mask
One mask - RRP $9.99
My initial thought when I was holding it was "What is this ugly plastic, watery thing?". This is one of those rubbery / silicon face masks which I have never seen or used before so this will be quite interesting. There is no description on the Ocean Essence website so I have no idea what properties it has.
Is the box really worth $20? To be honest I don't know - I'm currently receiving a VIP box for previously signing up for an annual subscription so who knows which box I would have received if it wasn't for that.
Which products did you receive in this month's LHI?
[UPDATE: I believe there hasn't been a distinction from VIP boxes and other variations this month. There were other boxes that seemed more worthy in value or better products, which doesn't justify the VIP status...]
