Popsugar Must Have Box April 2014

Popsugar Must Have Box

This was my first Popsugar box, mostly because I find a $40 subscription box to be taxing on my wallet. I mean most full sized items would be around this price and I can choose just what I want, but I was able to snag this box for $21!! It looks like this sub often has promo codes, now that this sub is on my radar I will post any promos I find.

Natural Eyes

Too Faced Naked Eye Pallet (new version)

The eyeshadow palette was why I purchased this box, it normally sells for $39! I have used this palette everyday since my box arrived, it’s everything my naked palettes should have been. I have found all the colors work with my tan skin tone and are easy to apply, with no fall out. Fallout is one of my biggest pet peeves because I apply my foundation first and who wants to reapply anything due to poorly formulated shadow!?! Full sized and value of $39

 Caldrea Hand Soap

This smells amazing! I normally purchase foaming hand soap from Bath and Bodyworks, but this product is “oh so good” I will be repurchasing. When I first pulled it out of the box I thought, ugh soap and Rosewater Driftwood what kind of scent is that!?! It’s like a warm, sunny meadow with a stream running through it, and it makes me happy. Full sized 10.8 oz and value of $10.50

Must Have Fashion

 ECO Shopper Bag

This bag was made by Blue Avocado, designed by Lauren Conrad and is perfect for carrying just about anything. It’s a collapsible tote made from upcycled plastic bottles and folds neatly into a wallet-sized pouch. I was worried it would be hard to get it to refold but it fit nicely back into itself. Full sized and valued at $24

Must Have Home

Graphic Image Notebook

They say “This isn’t your average notebook, with silver edges, acid-free paper, and a flexible cover, it’s the smart and stylish way to keep your life in order” BUT it’s totally your average notebook…Small size and valued at $25 (yeah right)

Must Have Home

Fresh Pastry Stand Totally Awesome Tea Towels

Now that’s a mouthful! I don’t know why but when I pulled these out “Everything is awesome” started playing in my head…These are nice quality and large, not really my style but fun and I’m sure I’ll find a use for them.  One cool thing is this is from a Etsy seller, if you’re unfamiliar with Etsy check it out! Etsy.com had tons of small venders focused on  handmade or vintage items, supplies, as well as unique factory-manufactured items. Full sized and valued at $18

Must Have Food

Nature Box Must Have Mix

Last and most certainly least …Nature Box Must Have Mix. “A balanced medley of almonds, soybeans, corn, and cranberries for a satisfying crunch.” um I haven’t even tried this one, maybe one day if all my good food runs out. Full sized and I can’t find this for sale anywhere, looks like there is a nature box subscription, that I’ll never sub to!

Overall I’m SO happy with this box, the value is over the moon and I have found my favorite daily use palette and a really nice hand soap. The bag and hand towels are a nice bonus. The book and trail mix are “whatever” items for me, but the total box cost was 1/2 the palette price and I’ll take that deal all day long.

If you actually read through all my ramblings here are  two bonuses for you:

Allure Summer Beauty Box 2014 *Updated*

Allure Beauty Box Summer 2014 Contents

http://www.allureaccess.com/summer/

*Okay for everyone who wants to kill me for telling you about this deal:

Allure’s servers/website had a major malfunction and very, very few people were able to purchase a box , I’m talking just 300 to 400. So they are going to “reset” the sale for May 6th at 9am pacific/12pm eastern. The same link above should take you there at that time. Good luck and sorry for anyone who threw their computer across the room this morning!

This link will go live tomorrow at 9AM pacific or 12PM eastern, last time I had to try multiple browsers because the link didn’t work properly. If you aren’t able to get the like to work after it goes live, try switching up your browser.

I’m debating if I will purchase this box or not, while it’s a great deal for $45+ $10 for shipping it’s SO hair care heavy. I grouped the items into 3 categories,Hair Care, Skin & Body, and Makeup:

 

Ipsy Glam Bag April 2014 The best $10 I spend!!

Ipsy does it again, seriously I don’t how they pull this off for only $10!! This months bag is packed with high end products:

Everyone received a Urban Decay 24/7 liner in their new Velvet formula in a very black shade.  Full size sells for $20, I’ll receive a deluxe size!

Dr. Brandt Skincare - microdermabrasion skin exfoliant Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion exfoliant, full size is $78 for 2oz! Not sure how large my sample will be, but even at .25oz value would be $10. I’m excited to try this and I don’t think I would have tried it on my own.

Elizabeth Mott Pop Goes The Shadow, I tried this brands mascara in a past bag and really enjoyed it. Not that I “need” more eyeshadow, but if the quality is anywhere near the mascara this could become a new brand in my line up. This is full sized and valued at $12.99.

Starlooks Luscious Longwear Lip Pencil. I have an eyeliner from this brand, again from a past Ipsy bag, that was nice. I have 60+ lip products (yes, I have a problem) and don’t have one lip liner! Happy to give this a go and it is full sized with a value of $14!

And last but not least:

Coastal Scents Eyeshadow Brush, I received this in a past bag and LOVE it! Super happy to be getting another one. This is the first time I’ve received a duplicate item, but not upset because it was a awesome product. This is the lowest valued item at $2.50, but it holds it own against my higher end brushes!

So my estimated value for this bag is at least $50 and don’t forget the cute bag they send it in! If you haven’t signed up you NEED this! It’s so much fun trying new products and for the price it can’t be beat.

Urban Decay Start Getting Naked

Urban Decay Start Getting Naked

It’s very light weight with light/medium coverage and goes on nicely with a satin finish. It provides around 5 to 6 hours of good coverage before I needed to touch up with my Mac Studio Fix. Unfortunately this foundation can’t make it through my long work day, but is great for a short day hanging outside.

Sephora has this foundation with a bonus beauty balm and complexion prep spray. It’s just $1.75 more than the foundation on it’s own!  There is a great shade range with 20 shades, I found I was in between #7 and #8.  Whole numbers have a yellow undertone and numbers with .5 have a pink undertone. Priced at $39 or $40.75 with the bonus (the beauty balm is 1/2 the full size)
