BeautyHeaven Sample Pack

Today I awoke to a parcel being deliver, always a good start to the morning even if I didn’t have any idea what it was. Opening it reviled some beautiful turquoise tissue paper and the BeautyHeaven logo, so I’m assuming that this is my gift for being one of the first 400(?) to fill out their survey. Yay!

First up if you are an Aussie into beauty and never have checked out BeautyHeaven, I suggest  you pop over for a look. It’s a website that covers everything to do with beauty. There is beauty news, products reviews, articles, competitions, a forum with a great community and opportunity’s to try and review products.

I’ll quickly go over what I got in this bundle.

August Lust Have It Women's 2014

Hiya All!

Here is my August Lust Have It bag. While this bag did come late this month (seems like its late more often than not) it actually arrived early last week and I’ve simply been too busy to get to this write up. On the plus side, this does mean that I’ve been able to give everything a fair trail

In case you don’t know, the Lust Have It (LHI) is a monthly Australian beauty subscription service. The Women's bag is the flagship of this brand; each month you get 5+ beauty products to try, mainly samples and some full size. I pay $19.95 per month, but there are other payment options. Find out more at Lust Have It.

August is apparently Lust Have Its birthday month. Some subscribers may feel a little let down by the lack of makeup in this bag, but I’m very happy with what it contained. I also love that everyone got pretty much the same bag; a couple of the Women's bags have been like this now and I sure do prefer it as it stops the inequality problems that can otherwise happen (anyone been looking at the value range of Bellabox?)

August Lust Have It FAB Box 2014

A week in to September and my August FAB has arrived. I should probably explain that a actually got the woman’s box a week ago and have been too busy to do a write up. Logically I should see to that first, but excitement has gotten the better of me. I predict that feelings for this box are going to go two ways; nail polish lovers will be thrilled, while people who are not in to nail polish will hate it.

In this box you get 5 beauty products and accessories each month, from what I’ve seen the beauty products tend to be full size. For this box there are several subscriptions choices such as: introduction bundle, monthly, quarterly box, annual subscription. I have the monthly subscription at $35 per a month. It seems that there is only one variation of the FAB box each month, though sometimes product colours differ. Find out more here. From what I understand the rationale behind the FAB box is to get a range of ‘on tread’ products that have been coordinated to go together. It also seems that the cosmetics are chose to complement those in the Women’s box.

August Violet Box 2014

Hiya All!

This little guy actually turned up about a week ago, the August Violet Box; unfortunately as mid semester approaches if been super busy and just have had time to wright up this post. On the plus side this means that I’ve been able to give everything a good trial. This is the first moment I’ve been able to get to this so I’ll try to power through this post

Violet Boxes is an Australian beauty subscription which costs $22.95 ($16.50 + $6.45p&h); for this price each month they mail you a box with 5 to 6 beauty products to sample. From what I’ve seen this box tends to include more high end and luxury products than Lust Have It or Bellabox. You can subscribe to violet box from their website.

A couple of weeks ago NP Set had a fantastic sale on their web store. There were some great savings and I may haves splurged just a little (lot). But I did manage to pick up some basics that I’d been looking at. I will say that delivery did take about two weeks, but I assume that this had a lot to do with the sale.

Brand Basics
In case you don’t know NP set is the drugstore sub-brand of Napoleon Perdis. The range of cosmetics is mainly made up with basic and essential makeup items as well as a few skincare thrown in. From what I’ve seen prices and quality tend to be on par with other drugstore brands. The packaging of NP set makeup is very simple black writing on white minimalist design. This is nice as it gives a very clean look and everything matches. However, the packaging isn’t of the highest quality. NP Set products are available at Big W, Target, Myers, David Jones, a collection of stockist and from their online store.

Ok now I’m done with that I can get down to the fun stuff.

August Bellabox 2014

Hiya All!

It’s that time of the month when subscription boxes star popping up at the front door. As seems to be the norm, BellaBox is first this month and a lot earlier than last month.

For those who don’t know; Bellabox is an Australian monthly beauty subscription, available from Bellabox.com. It costs $15 a month and you receive 5+ beauty products mailed to your house.

For August BellBox has decided on the theme “Sport Your Style”. From the moment this theme was announced I have been confused about what is actually means and had low expectations for the August box.  This hasn’t exactly changed.

It also seems that BellaBox has decided to drop the categories from the products. If you check out the product cards in from the last two months July and June you can see that after each product name there is a category. I feel that these categories were fun to look at and I’m sad to see these go.

Happy Skincare Product Review

About a month back I was sent a voucher code from Happy Skincare to receive a free
‘Sweet Dreams’ Softening Foot Treatment with any purchase. I had trialled one of their products in Bellabox before and had been eyeing up the Super-Sized Discovery Pack, so I jumped at this offer.
