Her Fashion Box - August 2013 (Feminine)

I think it would be fair to say that Her Fashion box is my 'most looked forward to' beauty box that I subscribe to.  Maybe it's because it costs quite a bit more than the others so I expect more or maybe it's because mostly every box they've sent out has impressed me.  Either way this month's box is no different, it's jam packed full of full size beauty products and fashion items.

Here's what was inside:

Her Fashion Box August 2013
Ardell Brow Defining Kit RRP$24.95
This kit contains 3 things: A palette with three colours to custom blend for your eyebrow shade plus a highlighter to enhance the brow. A duo brow brush with a mascara type spoolie on one end and an angled applicator brush on the other and the third thing is a Brow Grooming Pencil which is a clear waxy pencil you can use to set your brows and also has an inbuilt pencil sharpener.  This is definitely the beauty product I was most excited to see, I'm obsessed with trying to fake great eyebrows - they frame the face afterall!  Can't wait to try this out.

Ardell Brow Perfection Stencils RRP$9.99
4 different eyebrow stencils you can use to help shape your eyebrows.   Perfect when using the kit above.

Press & Go Press-On Manicure RRP$14.95
I'm not a fan of receiving nail products in these beauty boxes and this is no different.  They are in a nice natural pink colour and nice and short but I just know I won't wear them.  Along with all the other nail products I've received over the last 12 months from these boxes I'll be giving them all to my partners neice.

Me Me Me Beat the Blues Illuminator in Sunbeam RRP$18.95
Right up until I started writing this post I thought this was a nail polish and so was very disinterested.  It's actually a liquid highlighter and it's absolutely beautiful.  It's an iridescent illuminator that can be used on it's own or added to liquid foundation.

Loreal Mythic Oil 45ml (trial size value $13.50)
Not another hair oil, I am so hair oiled out!  I have fine hair and an oily scalp so using hair oils isn't ideal for me.  I will try this one out and see how I go but mostly I find I can only use these types of products as a pre-wash treatment- sometimes leaving them in overnight.

Eyelash Curler - Bonus Product
Please don't hate me but my lashes curl up naturally so I've never needed to use an eyelash curler.  It does seem like a nice curler, doesn't feel junky like some I've seen around and I'm sure it won't be hard to find a new home for it.

Her Fashion Box - Pretty in Python Scarf RRP $24.95
I loved the scarf we got the month before last and have got a lot of wear out of it so was excited to see another one in a different print.  It's a print that I would never have picked out for myself but I'm looking forward to finding an outfit to style it with.

Her Fashion Box - Infinite Bliss Belt RRP$24.95
Unfortunately I don't/can't wear belts.  They just look all wrong on me.  This one is also brown and gold which would have to be my two worse colours!  This item will be re-gifted for sure.

 Because I filled out the survey on last month's box I received another little Honey & Beau pouch in a different print to what I received in last month's box.  I love the black and white stripes and think these little pouches are gorgeous so I was very happy to receive another one.

As always Her Fashion Box is accompanied by an A5 glossy magazine detailing everything received in the box and ideas on how to style your new accessories.  I do think this is a really nice touch and enjoy sitting down to read it each month.  Because there are 3 different types of boxes you can pick from when you subscribe, it's nice to be able to see the differences in the boxes in this magazine.

Overall I'm once again really happy with what I received this month, especially when I realised I had an illuminator and not another nailpolish!  I love the variety that Her Fashion Box provides; there is always full sized beauty products and the accessories have really stepped up a notch in recent months.

Her Fashion Box are already promoting their September box to be one of their best yet so I'm already looking forward to see what that holds.

  2. Ohh im so jealous. I haven't got my box yet :( The scarf is sooooo pretty. I get the classic box and I hope the scarf is just as nice. I kind of wish I had got the Fem box instead.

    1. I saw the classic scarf in the book and it looks really nice too - I think you'll like it :)
