Lust Have It - April 2013

On the very last day of this month I fiiiiinally received my Lust Have It beauty box.  Needless to say I was not very impressed with the lateness of this especially since so many people received them last week.  I do blame Australia Post for this though, not Lusthaveit.

From what I've seen there are a lot of different boxes this month with different brands and products and I haven't see one that is exactly the same as mine yet.

Also my box is missing the card that says what's inside so I won't be putting any prices/vales on anything because I don't know.  As per Lusthaveit's facebook page I emailed support for them to email me the card but I haven't heard back.

Anyways I'll get on with it:  Here's my box (apologies for the slightly blurry photos)

Lust Have It Beauty Box - April 2013
1.  GOSH - full sized eyeshadow in light brown - I hadn't heard of this brand before but the eyeshadow looks nice and is a neutral colour that I will probably wear.

2.  Rachel K CC Cream - 4 sachets - One says Natural and the other says original but I can't work out what the difference is between the two.  Maybe it's the colour.

3.  Pink Tiger - Nail File and Gauze strips - The gauze strips are an interesting product which apparently are for removing nail polish.  This isn't something I'd ever purchase but good to receive something different.

4.  Molton Brown Body Wash - trial size - I like receiving little body washes - they're awesome for travelling and trying new scents without having to purchase full sizes.

5.  Aveda Exfoliating Shampoo and Thickening Conditioner

6. Paulas Choice - Skin Balancing Super Anti-oxidant Matifying Concentrate Serum - This looks like a full size product and this is a brand I've wanted to try for a while.  Unfortunately I have dry skin and this is for oily skin which makes me super sad.  I'm actually considering using it anyways coz I like the sound of the anti-oxidants.  But I probably won't - I should send it to my sister or something but it makes me terribly sad face! ha!

The two full sized products - GOSH Eyeshadow and Paulas Choice Serum

Pink Tiger Nail File and Gauze Wipes

I'm pretty happy with the box.  Apart from the Paula's choice serum which is pretty disappointing I'll use everything else which means for me this box is good value.  In saying that since I didn't actually receive a card I have no idea what the actual value of this box is.

My only wish is that Lusthaveit would send their boxes out at the same time every month to provide some kind of consistency - we can only blame Australia Post for so much.

If you want to sign up for one of these boxes just head to their website here - cost is $19.95 per month

    1. I'll try them out on the weekend and maybe do a mini-review on them :)

      I have to say I was a little disappointed by Lust Have It's response to the people who's card said they were supposed to get them but didn't (my Mum was one of them). Instead of giving everyone 4 sachets - why didn't they only give 2 sachets but give them to more people. Strange if you ask me!

    2. I agree with you on that one. My daughter received 4 sachet samples of Rachel K CC Cream and I didn't receive any. We should have all received 2 sachets each so we could all try it. Apart from that, I was very happy with my box this month.

  3. the CC creams are different colours (i decanted mine into pots). one is a more pinkish base colour, the other is more yellow

  4. Great box! I'm curious about the CC cream too.. I wonder how it compares to BB cream

    1. Thanks, I'll try them out on the weekend and do a mini-review on them.

  5. I got this exact box! I've used one of the CC cream sachets (pink one) and quite liked it. I'm a huge BB cream girl. The CC cream seemed to last longer on my face.. I'll probably end up buying a full size one! I also have oily/combo skin so the serum was an awesome thing to get.. Bummer you have dry skin.. You could always give it a go?


Feel free to comment or ask any questions. I would love to hear from you x
