Luxe Box: Fall Edition, September 2012

I have to admit, I was a bit iffy on the switch to sending Luxe Boxes quarterly instead of monthly. I got my Fall Edition box last week, though, and I was impressed!

I had to laugh when Matt told me I got “a box from Members Only.” It wasn’t a jacket.

The branding itself is quite nice. Everything is made from high-quality papers, and packaged elegantly. I received four full-sized products, and a few products that were just launching.

First up was the Eyeko skinny liquid liner. I’m not really a liquid eyeliner person because I find it messy and hard to use. This stuff wasn’t too bad–my left eye looked a bit rough when I tried it, so I still need practice, but it went on really smoothly and stayed put.

The No Bleeding Lips secret lip liner is supposed to be a universal liner that matches any lip colour. I never wear lipstick, but I’m going to try it out during the wedding!

Of course, it being Luxe Box, I got wrinkle cream. The B. Kamins Nia-Stem Eye Cream KX is actually supposed to stop the formation of future wrinkles, though, so that’s not a bad thing.

My Luxe Boxes usually have something for damaged hair included, and this time around, it was Kerastase Elixir Ultime with Immortal Moringa, which sounds like a bunch of made-up words. It smelled good, and had a silky, oily kind of texture that reminded me of when my aunt used to do V05 Hot Oil treatments on us when we were kids. I have no idea if it did anything for my hair, though — it’s so out of control already, even though I recently got it cut, so I’ve been in ponytail-land for the last few weeks.

There were two nail polishes, which made me happy! The Bourjois Paris mini enamel is a really pretty, shimmery colour, and I can’t wait to try the China Glaze out.

They sent along a Loose Button branded exfoliating pad, which is probably something I will use often, coming into the dry-skin days of winter.

Like I said, it was a pretty good haul! I honestly have no idea when my next box is coming, at this point, but I think I’ll stick with it for awhile.

    I signed up for their U.S tour, which is only two boxes, but I’m excited! I almost didn’t read this post, but I couldn’t resist. 🙂 Who knows when and what they’ll send me? And that China Glaze could be your “something blue.”

      Haha, I was thinking about cancelling mine before I got this one!

  3. […] makeup samples than skincare/fragrance minis. Overall I was pretty impressed, but I still liked my last Luxe Box […]

  4. […] have tried China Glaze polish before (in my Luxe Box fall package, actually — funny how the samples repeat) and I like it. It has great coverage and lasts […]
