If you're a regular to my blog, you'll know I'm a huge fan of the Violet Box subscription service. Every now and then, though, VB offer something a bit different, and that's the opportunity to choose your own products from a list on the website. This is known as 'Building Your Own Box' and essentially consists of 2 skincare selections, 2 makeup selections and 2 hair/lifestyle selections.
The website was having some difficulties when I first tried to build my box, due to overwhelming demand, so I ended up just shutting it down and getting back to it at a later time. I did have a bit of a problem with some of my initial picks getting sold out, and then, my order sort of disappeared into the ether and wasn't dispatched until I called Violet Box almost a week later to confirm that my box had been dispatched. Luckily, they were really good about sorting out the error and they were also kind enough to let me substitute one of my original skincare picks with a makeup item that had been dropped from my selection from the original order, so I ended up with 3 makeup items instead. Here's what I chose for my box!
Eyetini Cream Shadow in Spiced Rum (full sized)
Jing Ai Velvet Shine Lip Jewel in Pink A Boo (full sized)
Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow Quad in Madrid (full sized)
Gascoigne and King travel candle in Love Vanilla (full sized - but this is a travel candle)
Hair&Me Hair Rejuvenation Treatment (full sized)
Lon Vitalite Collagen Crystal Eye Mask (deluxe sample)
|Everything I received in my Build A Box.|
Gascoigne & King Love Vanilla candle, Lon Vitalite eye mask, Hair&Me hair treatment, Eyetini cream shadow, Jing Ai lip crayon and Be A Bombshell eyeshadow quad.
