The bottle she broke contained red polish (of course). The email didn't list what colour I was getting so I was hoping that I wouldn't get red, as it's not a colour I generally wear. And perhaps as the universe's way of balancing out Saturday night, I received a colour that not only isn't red but is also one that I actually like.
Here's what I received this month:
- Ciaté London Nail Lacquer in She's Electric (full size)
- Dr. Roebucks PURE Day and Night Cream (30ml)
- Eyeko London Fat Eye Stick (full size)
- Harvey Prince Organics Keravegan Hair Masque (30ml)
It's not the biggest or the best box of the year but it is very well-rounded, with something for my nails, skin, face and hair. All boxes should aim to have at minimum these four elements.
I'm most intrigued by the Fat Eye Stick. A smokey eye is one of the few defined looks that I can actually pull off but I'm not sure if I could pull it off with such a fat pencil. I guess I'll find out.
Since I'm running low on a day cream, I'm quite happy that this box contained a new moisturizer and a "fancy" one at that. A full 100ml jar of Dr. Roebucks PURE retails for $55. My 30ml sample is a nice, healthy size that should really let me see if this cream is worth the money.
The hair masque is also a rather pricey item, for a hair masque anyway, retailing at over $30. I'm actually behind in my hair masque testing (I always forget to move them from my beauty cabinet to the shower) so I don't really need this product. But still, I'll get to it eventually, especially since it's a brand that I've never used before.
And really, despite losing a bottle on Saturday, I don't need another nail polish (and especially not one from Ciaté, a brand I've already very familiar with). But this one's in such a toe-perfect shade that I'll definitely be using it.
