Lust Have It – July 2014 – Review + GIVEAWAY

Hi everyone,

The July Lust Have It Box (or now, bag!) arrived at my doorstep today so I thought I’d share with you the contents of the box for this month. When reviewing last month’s box, I stated that I hoped this month’s box would be more impressive than the last and I think it definitely is an improvement!

For those of you unfamiliar with Lust Have It, Lust Have It is a monthly beauty subscription box with the inclusion of 5-6 deluxe sized beauty items, priced at only $19.95 a month but if you use the code ‘TRIED1’ you can receive $5 off your first box!

Marsk Mineral Eye Shadow. RRP: $24.95 for 1.2g. Received FULL SIZE.

I received the eye shadow in the shade Rich List which is a beautiful shimmery gold shade. Over the last few months, I’ve tried quite a few mineral makeup products and I’m really impressed by them! I was never a fan of loose makeup but I am now coming around to it!

Mary Kay Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover. RRP: $22.00 for 100ml. Received FULL SIZE.

I’ve only been able to experience the Mary Kay brand through boxes like Lust Have It and this is a product I’ve yet to try so I really appreciate the full size bottle of this as their other products are really nice. I wear eye makeup nearly every day so I’m always going through eye makeup remover and this one is said to gently remove all eye makeup including waterproof mascara. What’s interesting is that its an oil free formula but looks as though it does contain oil in the bottle as there are 2 layers!

Ardell Self Adhesive Lashes. RRP: 9.99 for 1 pair. Received FULL SIZE.

Ardell has to be one of my favourite false lash brands because the quality is so high. This month, there were a range of self-adhesive lashes included in the box and I received the 109S lashes.  I think these would be great for a natural look because they’re simple in design and not too long. The lashes also come with an extra adhesive band in the box.

Designer Brands Nail Polish. RRP: $6.99 for 12ml. Received FULL SIZE.

I‘ve never tried any products from the DB brand and as a lover of nail polish, I look forward to seeing how their nail polishes wear. I received the shade 218 Gun Metal which is a black nail polish with tiny silver shimmer throughout. It’s a really gorgeous shade.

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion. RRP: $79.99 for 150ml. Received 7ml sample.

Each person would’ve received a sample of this product for the gel cleanser in their box this month. This has been included in a number of boxes over the past year and I have to admit, I haven’t used them but I will be trying to cull my ‘samples draw’ stash very soon so this will be given a go.

Overall, I think this month’s box is a definite improvement from the June box. I really love that there were 4 substantially sized full size items included and that all included look like quality products. It’s a nice box though it isn’t the best box that Lust Have It has put out.  Next month is actually Lust Have It’s Birthday Box so I have high hopes and hopefully the boxes continue to be better and better!
