Loose Button Luxe Box Fall 2012 Canadian Edition
September 9, 2012 § 2 Comments
So I haven’t been blogging for quite a while now. (If you’re new to this blog, please skip the whole paragraph :P)
I really wanted to get back on it but I kept delaying it because I really didn’t have energy to take photo, edit them, write about make-up and post it. I am pregnant! and I didn’t know if I should mention it on this blog, which is another reason why I didn’t get back on blogging. Anyhow, I am 7 month in and finally feeling more energetic and stable. Of course when the time comes, I might stop blogging for a while again, but I decided to write as much as I can for now 🙂
I received my long waited Loose Button Luxe Box Fall Edition on September 7th. They changed their subscription system from monthly to quarterly subscription and this one was first of their new box. We get more samples in our box but the cost is more too so I wasn’t sure about continuing the subscription. So how did it turn out? Let’s check out the box.
List of Products I Received:
1. China Glaze Nail Polish in Prey Tell (full Size)
This nail polish is from their fall collection “On Safari”. I love China Glaze nail polish but I’m not a huge fan of this colour. It’s a very deep burgundy (almost black with 2 coats) with no shimmer or glitter. It’s bit too vampy for my liking and I’m not really red/burgundy nail polish person. I like nudes and muted colours. I might give it to my friend or something. Nevertheless, nice product to try out.
2. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner (Full Size)
I was most excited to try this liner out. It is a felt tip liquid liner. I used this yesterday and it worked amazing! It has very firm and thin tip so I could line my eyes very precisely. Super nice for those winged out eyeliner. The colour is very rich black with semi-matte finish. Also, the lasting power is great! It stayed on whole day and eyelash curler did not affect it at all. LOVE IT and will purchase this when it runs out.
3. Vera Wang Lovestruck Perfume
I am not so big on receiving perfume samples because I am really particular on scents. But this one smells pretty nice. Fresh and sweet (but not too sweet). I can see myself wearing this on daily basis. Pretty Casual perfume.
4. Calvin Klein Beauty Perfume and Body Lotion
I am not so excited about perfume and I get 2 of them! I wish we could tell Loose Button which category we like more. I can live with 1 perfume sample but 2 is just too much in my opinion. I mean the scent is nice and elegant. It can work as daily or formal perfume. A little bit too mature for my liking but not something I hate. The body lotion smells really strong at first, but gets better as time passes.
5. Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray
Another product I’m not so excited about. I’m sure most of girls would be happy to receive this, but I don’t use hairsprays at all. I thought maybe my husband can use it but it’s medium hold so he wouldn’t use it… Don’t know what to do with this. I’d rather receive Lancome Visionair Serum or Marcelle BB Cream sample like some other girls did, instead of the perfume and hairspray I got. Better luck next time?
6. Vichy PROEVEN Daily Dark Spot Corrector
These were in the little brown pockets so I posted a photo to show you guys. I received 5 pouches of this sample and I’m pretty excited to try them out. I think I can use it for at least 1 week to see if it makes any difference. Ever since I got pregnant, some dark spots around my eye area got little darker. If this does not irritate my skin and lightens the dark spots, I might buy it in the future.
7. Loose Button Exfoliating Pad
I think Loose Button put this in the box as a bonus but I’d rather get 1 more make-up or skincare sample. I mean they promised 7-8 samples and I only got 7 including this exfoliating pad. I want to try different brands, not something they just made up (at least that’s what I feel.) I used it in the shower last night and it’s not too bad. Nice to exfoliate the elbows and knees, but I feel like it won’t last very long.
So over all I am impressed with the quality of the products I got. 2 full size items and the hairspray is decent size too. However, I am not happy with the actual products I got because I simply can’t or won’t use them. I still have $12 credit left so I will be adding some money to purchase my winter edition. If I get products I like in the winter edition, maybe I will continue. If not, I will go ahead and try Topbox or go back to Glossybox.
