I am back to blogging this year 🙂 I took a break last year for a few months to focus on finishing my studies. This Year I would like to strive to post more content!
To start off, I want to talk about the Lust Have It! monthly beauty boxes 🙂 I’ve always wanted to try out these style of beauty subscriptions since I’ve seen a lot of different types floating around these days! It has gotten pretty popular because it’s super exciting and fun to see what kind of goodies you’ll get each month 😀 And usually the monthly subscription fee is pretty cheap starting from $10 to $20! I’ve also seen clothing, food and accessories boxes too!
Lust Have It! Is an Australian based beauty subscription company and you can access their website here: http://www.lusthaveit.com.au 🙂 It costs only $20 per month to subscribe and they send it directly to your home!
I’ve subscribed to 3 monthly boxes starting from October to December 2016, so in the next posts I will share with you my October and November boxes 🙂 But let’s start off with last month’s box!
Each month you will received 5 to 7 goodies ranging from beauty, health, body and skincare products 🙂 It’s fantastic when you want to try out new brands and new products that you normally don’t find or purchase! Usually these are full sized products or deluxe samples 🙂 It’s great to have a different range of goodies though.
Starting off is the Bloom Secret Weapon concealer kit in Medium/Dark 🙂 I love how there’s the green and yellow to help colour correct uneven skin tones, along with a highlighter to brighten the eye area! Then it includes 3 skin tone shades that will suit medium to dark skin tones 🙂
Here’s the ingredient listing if you are wondering what’s in this formula 🙂
This is the back of the product. This packaging is so cool! It’s like a card design so it’s thin and lightweight to carry around 🙂 The plastic material is also sturdy and strong so it doesn’t feel like it will break too easily!
The front of the packaging with the names and details!
So this is how you open the product! You just slide the front card out, and it’s so cool XD
And underneath the card has some cool makeup tips!
Product view 🙂 Don’t you just love a fresh, unused makeup product? haha the surface is just perfect!
And here are the swatches on my hand! I’m a bit tanned right now so you can see that the concealer shades suit anyone with medium, tanned or dark skin tones 🙂 Though my face is still light, I may only use the colour correcting concealers!
The forumla is great, it feels lightweight on the skin, and it’s got a medium build able coverage, so you can use as little or as much as you need! I suggest using the colour correcting tones first, followed by the skin tone concealers to make it look more natural 🙂 The good thing about cream formulas is that it gives higher coverage and it’s easy to build and blend!
It also comes with a brush so you can use this on the go, or to touch up during the day 😉 How handy is that!
Now next up is the Kueshi Ultra Stem Cell cream. I’ve never heard of this brand before, so it’s great to know and to try out something different 🙂
The back of the product so you can see the ingredient listing 🙂 It also explains more in detail about your skin and what this cream can deliver! It’s great to know it’s paraben free too 🙂
This is the texture of the cream! As you can see it’s not a thick texture, it’s quite lightweight so it feels good on my skin, especially during the Summer when it’s hot and humid, you do not want to use a thick, heavy cream because it will feel sticky and unpleasant :O I really like the pump nozzle, so it makes it easy to squeeze out the desired amount and it’s not messy or unhygienic compared to cream in tubs! I also want to note how much I love the scent of this cream 🙂 It’s light and refreshing so if you have a sensitive nose it won’t affect you.
Next up is the Naobay Orange Juice hand cream! I love using hand creams 🙂 It’s super important to take care of your hands because when we age, our hands age with us 🙂 And if you ever get botox on your face, then the neck and hands are always the giveaway of your age! So make sure you look after them 😉 In my experience working in the beauty industry, I’ve seen a lot of older women do botox, but their necks and hands don’t look the same. I guess you can’t do much about them to stop the ageing process, but you can definitely look after them to make the skin surface appear smoother and younger 🙂
The back of the packaging so you can check out the ingredient listing! This also has Aloe Vera extract which is a great ingredient to moisturise your hands 🙂
You can see the texture of this product, it’s not thick or light, so it’s a perfect medium texture for a hand cream 🙂 I LOVE the scent of this!! It smells exactly like OJ haha. It’s super fruity and refreshing so it’s a great scent for a hand cream hehe. I really like fruity hand cream scents! I also like how it doesn’t have a sticky or oily texture during or after use. So it dries quickly which means you can get back to whatever you’re doing faster 🙂
Next up: The Model Co Lip Enhancer lip pencil 🙂 I’ve never used Model Co before, but it’s such a well known established brand in Australia! You can find their products everywhere, especially in Priceline or pharmacies 🙂
This product is housed in a classic wooden pencil design, so it makes it easy to use and to sharpen!
The colour is perfect! I love the beige pink shade, which resembles a classic natural lip colour so this makes a perfect base for nude lipsticks or just to use by itself to enhance your natural lip colour 🙂 The texture is soft, light, and glides easily on the skin and lips! The finish is matte which means it will last well! I wore this yesterday with my makeup look and I love how it looked on me because it’s the perfect nude shade for my skin tone XD It lasted for a few hours until I ate haha. So you will need to reapply after drinking or eating which is normal with lip pencils.
Next up is Your Tea! I’ve heard of this brand before but I’ve never tried it haha. I’m a big tea drinker so I love this! I only drink Twinnings but I can’t wait to try this one out XD I love tea so much I drink it at night and I can sleep with it haha.
The packaging is super cute too! Apparently this tea will aid with skin health, mood, boosting your immunity and reducing excess fluid!
Lastly, this is the Nivea Express Hydration body lotion 🙂 This is a small deluxe item, so it makes it perfect for travelling! I love Nivea products, especially for the body and face!
When I opened this product I was surprised at how much it’s filled to the top it almost overflowed on me haha! The scent is great, since Nivea products always smell great XD
You can see the texture of this product is pretty lightweight and sheer! Which means it’s a great body lotion for Summer and for anyone who dislikes thick and dense body creams! But then again the word “lotion” usually means it’s a lighter texture XD It absorbed into my skin pretty quickly so it’s great on the go which is a big plus! I dislike creams that take too long to absorb, especially when you have to go out or go to bed and it sticks to your clothes haha.
That wraps up the Lust Have It! December box 🙂 I love all these products and it was so fun opening it up to see what I’ll get that month XD It’s like a mini surprise from me to me haha!!
I hope you’ll check this beauty subscription box out and I also think it makes a great gifting idea too 😉
