Lust Have It! Beauty Box | May 2014

Today, 22 days into May, my Lust Have It! Beauty Box for May arrived. Given that my April box arrived seven days into May, I'll really happy to receive this box in the month it was intended. It's definitely progress! The first thing I noticed was that it wasn't packaged in the clear cosmetics bag that last month's was. Instead, the contents of this month's box was just placed in the mailing box which, I'm honest, does not bother me. Sometimes I struggle to find uses for all the collectable boxes and make up bags!

For more info on the contents of this box, keep reading.

Mary Kay Lip Lacquer in Pink Pagoda
"For intense high-shine, kissable lips use Limited Edition Mary Kay Lip Lacquer with Mini Retractable Lip Brush. With its smooth, jelly finish and stay-true colour, your lips will feel quenched in moisture as it glides on smoothly"
This product will be going to someone else. I'm quite fond of lip glosses but not lip lacquers. I hate the way they feel on the lips. In saying that, it's a pretty nice reddish pink colour that will appeal to quite a few people.

Coral Colour Eyebrow Definer Pencil in #246 Dark Brown
"Shape and define your eyebrows naturally or create dramatic definition with this easy to use brow pencil. The professional formula glides, blends easily and is long lasting"
This product excites me. I'm quite 'into' eyebrows lately and am always interested in trying new brow products. I haven't tried this on the brows yet but I've swatched it and I fear it may be a little too warm in colour. We'll see and I'll definitely report back! 

Appelles Rosemary Body Bar
"This vegetable soap bar draws moisture allowing skin to remain soft and hydrated. Low irritant and animal friendly, it gently cleanses without drying or stripping helping to reduce epidermal stress. The certified organic essential oil blend is refreshing, soothing and quintessentially Australian" 
A bar of soap that smells like rosemary? This is either going to be genius or awful. It smells quite lemony in the package so I think it might be a nice and refreshing product to use in the morning.

The Cosmetic Kitchen Pure Mineral Blush in Strawberry
"Define your cheek bones and add a healthy glow with this limited edition velvet smooth strawberry blush. Highly pigmented minerals make a tiny amount easy to spread across the cheeks. Talc free, nano free, non bismuth and cruelty free". 
Mineral blushes are something I really do not have time for, as ridiculous as that is. I just find that it's really difficult to control the amount of product you're applying and, like all loose powders, they're crazy messy! 

Sasy n Savy Pure Crème Rose Geranium Cleanser 
"Deep cleansing and firming effect on the skin to improve skin elasticity. Making the skin look radiant and smooth. Ideal for normal to dry skin"
A product for dry skin? Pass. Unfortunately I have combination/oily skin so this definitely won't work for me. I might be able to pass it one to someone else.

Once again, I've been pretty disappointed with this month's Lust Have It! Box. I'll probably use two of the products, the brow pencil and soap, and pass the other three onto other people. At the moment I'm wondering whether I'd like to remain subscribed to this service. I've not been very fond of any of the boxes I've received lately.
