October 2013 Lust Have It Review!

Hi lovelies,

It was a very happy mail day for me today with both my Lust Have It and Her Fashion Box subscriptions arriving today! I will have my HFB post up in a day or two, but in the meantime, here is my LHI box review! This month's LHI was packaged in a gorgeous floral box that matches their new logo. I received the following items in my October box:

Le Tan Wash Off Spray Tan (deluxe sample)

Inika Loose Mineral Eyeshadow in Gold Dust (full sized)

Paula's Choice Oil Blotting Papers (deluxe sample)

Evo Salvation Care Shampoo and Conditioner (deluxe sample)

Princesse Skincare Hyaluronic Acid Mask (deluxe sample)

Smitten Whipped Tinted Mousse Moisturiser in Cappuccino (deluxe sample - I think, I forgot to check so I will get back to you)

There was also a handful of discount vouchers. On to photos!

The new packaging - isn't it adorable?

So what did I think of this month's box? I quite liked it!

The new packaging is really lovely and fresh, and make an attractive gift box. Of all the items in the box, I'm most keen to try the Whipped Tinted Mousse Moisturiser (what a mouthful) as it claims to be a whole lot of things (you can see it in the last photo above). I'm keen to see if it can really deliver on the foundation, moisturiser, filler and concealer promise! Items like these are why I love beauty box subscriptions, as they introduce me to products I'd never have heard of otherwise. The swatch looks a wee bit pale for my skintone but I might be able to get away with it with a bit of bronzer. I will experiment and report back.

I also like the look of the mask but I'm not sure I can use it as I'm still on Roaccutane. I did receive Evo samples in a previous box (they are staring at me right now as I type this - surely I'm not the only one behind on using up samples?) but I'm going to Bali in 2 weeks (woohoo) so I might take them all with me! I love Inika and I'm definitely keen to play with this eyeshadow (although generally not a fan of loose ones because they can sometimes make a wee mess) but this might change my mind! I'm also obsessed with blotting paper so I can't wait to try this, I just wish the packaging was a bit sturdier but as I have a great Anna Sui blotting paper case, I'm just going to slip this in there.

The only product I won't be using is the tanning product, but I'm sure I can find someone to hand it out to.

Verdict? Happy with this box, I think it's a great mix of skincare, makeup and haircare (which is something that always gets a big tick from me).

  1. That looks like a great box! I'd be happy with yours - I'll leave a review once mine is up. That mask is something that I'd really like to try out!

  2. I got a different shadow, but otherwise exactly the same, I'm very happy with this months selection and look forward to trying them all out :)

  3. Looks like a great box! I am not subscribed to any beauty boxes at the moment but I am a little tempted to get started again! Just don't know which ones to choose hmm..

    1. It's really tempting, isn't it? Maybe go through the older boxes and see which ones consistently strike your fancy. :)

  4. Great review. It looks like everyone pretty much for the same thing. I'm still waiting for my one - fingers crossed that it comes soon.

    1. I've seen some variations! Can't wait to see what you get! :)

  5. I only just read your review today because as per usual my box is much later than yours! Mine was a little different. I received the mask, Le Tan, shampoo and conditioner like you but then received an Inika lip whip and a ModelCo lip pencil. I am pretty happy this month and will do a full review in the next few days.

    1. The lip whip sounds amazing, Kate!

      I can't wait to check out your full review!
