Lust Have It! March, 2012

Another Lust Have It! box arrived today, which is pretty exciting. I only received this box today, so I'm unable to review the products. Instead, I'll type out the information provided to me so you're able to get some insight into the items. If possible, I'll also include my initial thoughts.

Also, I don't normally talk about me in my beauty box posts but oh well - I've been sick all weekend and I was feeling really guilty about not having uploaded anything which is another reason why I loved receiving my box today. I don't really have to critique anything in beauty box posts, so it's not too strenuous. Haha. Anyway, let's get into it!
This month Lust Have It! has given their subscribers 5 Australian beauty products that they love for the Autumn time. Autumn and Winter are my favourite times of the year and I can't wait for the cold weather to begin.

I only received this box today, so I'm unable to review the products. Instead, I'll type out the information provided to me so you're able to get some insight into the items. If possible, I'll also include my initial thoughts.
Davroe Moisture Sense Argan Oil - RRP $23.95 for 50mL 
This box contained a full sized of the hair product.
"Weightless and non greasy. Immediately absorbed into the hair with no build up."
I really enjoy using the Davroe Tame Lemongrass Detangler that I received in my February Lust Have It! box, so I'm really excited to give this product a try too. 
Karpati DITO Nail Lacquer - RRP $19.95 for 8mL
I received a full sized nail polish in Vineyard Passion.

"Offers a long lasting, streak free formula. With 27 fast drying, extra shiny colours it's no wonder we love it so much." 
I've seen advertisements for these nail polish before but, stupidly enough, I didn't realise what the weird shaped bottle was all about. Duh, Sophie! If you look at the picture you can see it's been designed to rest between your hand when applying polish. How cool! I know other people who received this polish in different colours, and I assume the selection was random, but I quite like it. It's a deeper shade than what I'd normally wear (says the girl who wears black nail polish most of the time), but I'm definitely looking forward to giving it a try.
1 Skin Solution lip balm - RRP $9.95 for 5g
I received a full sized lip balm in vanilla. As far as I am aware, this product is only available in vanilla
"Nourish and protect your pout with this sweet scented balm. Rich in cocoa butter and vitamin E, it's your everyday essential this season."
If you read my Valentine's Day Haul you'll remember that I was recently sent a number of products to review. One of the products I was sent was this lip balm so I've already had the opportunity to try it. I hope to upload my 1 Skin Solution brand review this week, so I won't be commenting on the product. I will, however, say that it smells AMAZING!
Kosmea Replenishing Moisture Cream - RRP $$49.95 for 50mL
I received a 20mL sample of this product. 
 "Works to restore your skin's radiance and protect it against the signs of premature ageing."
I'm really looking for moisturisers with a good SPF factor at the moment (feel free to recommend your personal favourites) so it's disappointing that this moisturiser doesn't have that. I'll give this product a try as my  night time moisturiser for a while though, just to see what it's like. In my December Lust Have It! box I received a Kosmea Cream Cleanser which I happened to try for the first time last night and, unfortunately, I hated it. I hope I have a better opinion of this, however.
 Mirenesse Pearl Crush Creasless Shadow - RRP $29.95
I received this eyeshadow in Keshi Pearls. 
"Take your look from day to night with pure crushed natural minerals that blend seamlessly to create flawless eyes. Available in 5 (although on the website there's 6) trio palettes."
These eye shadows are beautiful. I've just looked online and I feel that I got the best palette, which is awesome. The pigmentation is incredible, as you can see from the swatch above. I just tapped my fingers on the product to receive that beautiful colour payoff. I can't wait to use this trio.

In the Mirenesse pouch there was also a voucher/leaflet for a free Mirenesse Tight Liner in Black Caviar. Obviously it was an offer too good to refuse and I've already registered for mine. You all know what I think of freebies. As soon as the eyeliner comes I'll be reviewing my collection of Mirenesse products and explaining how I accumulated them all. Surprisingly enough, I have 5 and I've only ever paid for one. Good promotional skills, Mirenesse!

This was the best Lust Have It! box I've ever received. Last month I compared my two beauty box subscriptions, Glossy Box and Lust Have It!, and decided that, after March, I was probably going to unsubscribe to Lust Have It! After receiving four full sized products (Davroe Argan Oil, Karpati nail polish, 1 Skin Solution lip balm and the Mirenesse eyeshadow trio) I think I need to give them another chance! It's not just that the products were 80% full sized, either. It's that I 4 out of the 5 products appealed to me instantly. 

Please be aware, it's not that I thought Lust Have It! was a 'bad' beauty box subscription. I just felt that a lot of the products I received weren't what I was hoping for.

After rambling for so long, I feel sick again. I think it's time for me to head to bed and dream of not feeling so crappy. Don't forget to comment below. If you got this month's box, what did you think of it? If you didn't get it, what was your favourite product this month?

Always look your best,

  1. I loved the box too! I got the same shade of nail polish, and Tahitian Pearls in the Mirenesse eye shadow, which is perfect for my hair colour and skin tone! LOVE the lip balm, and am excited to use the Argan oil! I loved the Kosmea Cleanser from the December box, so I was excited to see a moisturiser. I used it about half an hour ago and it's feeling good so far!

    I was thinking of unsubscribing too, but this makes it difficult! Now to await my bellabox...
