Lust Have It – February 2015 – Review

Hi everyone,

After some issues regarding delays in posting out the bag, the February Lust Have It arrived on my doorstep on Friday! Hopefully the March bag will be dispatched soon and LHI will get back on track with their shipping schedules.

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!

lust have it beauty box february 2015Designer Brands Black Liquid Eyeliner. RRP: $8.99. Received FULL SIZE.
I’m a huge fan of liquid eyeliner and I wear it almost everyday so I’m looking forward to giving this one from DB a go as it features a thin brush head. I haven’t tried much from the brand in the past either.

Natural Glamour Illuminating Foundation SPF 15. RRP: $29.95. Received FULL SIZE.
Unfortunately I received this foundation in the medium shade which is far too dark for my skin tone.

Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. RRP: $33.00. Received Deluxe Sized Sample.
I believe I received a similar, if not the same product from a earlier subscription box and was really impressed so  stay tuned for a review of this product!
 
Natural Glamour 2GLO Line Treatment Concealer. RRP: $27.95. Received FULL SIZE.
Like the foundation, this concealer is in the medium shade so I wont be able to use it sadly.

Ulta3 Plum Lip Liner. RRP: $2.95. Received FULL SIZE.
Everyone received the lip liner in the plum shade which is a lovely dark shade that I think will go well with evening lipstick shades. Lip liners are a great product to have as they can also double up as a full lip colour.

 

While I really appreciate that 4 out of 5 products in the bag are full sized, 2 of them are just too dark for me to use and I am sure quite a few others would’ve received the wrong shades as well which means only half the bag’s contents is useable. I think all subscription boxes should either rethink their inclusion of base products that are specific to skin tones and opt for ones that adapt to one’s skin tone or they should make an effort to take a look at their subscriber’s profiles and try to match the shades as best as they can.

I think this bag is just okay and unfortunately for me, LHI haven’t really impressed me yet this year so I hope March’s bag will really change my tune.

 

What are your thoughts on this bag?
