Violet Box May 2014

2nd box in 2 days!!!  VB this month released 2 sneak peeks, a Lush lipscrub and a Goldwell product.  Very exciting.  Turns out the box got even better! 

I opened this in front of my husband and he thought it looked empty, which it did.  but there are some hidden gems that are very exciting.

Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub-RRP $9.95-full size

This was the sneak peek from Facebook.  It smells amazing, very caramelly, and the list of ingredients sound like a very yummy treat.  Mine was handmade by Sabita!  It's available in 2 other flavours, mint tulips and bubblegum

Goldwell Stylesign Sleek Perfection Spray-RRP $24.95-sample size

This was our other sneak peek.  It's a decent sample (20ml, full size is 100ml), and should do a few applications.  It's a heat protectant spray and is humidity resistant.  I'll give it a go next time i straighten my hair.

Teeez Eve's Ready To Wear Lipstick-RRP $32-Full Size

This was the first thing i noticed when i opened my box, another TEEEZ product!!  This lipstick is supposed to be highly moisturising and long lasting, and is paraben free.  Mine's in Paradise Pink, a gorgeous mid pink that will suit nearly everyone.  Full review to follow in the next few weeks!

Chella Highlighter Pencil-RRP $22-Full Size

A new brand all the way from America!!  This is a highlighter pencil for light skin, and has multiple uses (the website says "This fresh and pretty neutral pencil will brighten and visibly lift your eyes when lightly applied on the brow bone, dark circles, blemishes and red spots. In addition, this multi-purpose pencil can be used to brighten and “open” the eye area by applying to the water line and inner corners of the eye. Applying a thin, blended line down the center of the nose creates the illusion of a thinner nose. Perfect for highlighting a beautiful smile by eliminating dark shadows and preventing lipstick spread by applying to the Cupid ’s bow and along the lip line. So many uses in just one perfect pencil! Formulated for LIGHT toned skin.").  It swatches to a matte ivory, so it may not suit everyone, but should suit the majority.  Chella is an eyes/brows and skincare brand, and sound very interesting.

Timeless Truth Herbal Rejuvenation Immortelle Mask-RRP $8-full size

Another full size product and another new brand (at least it is to me).  This mask is meant to be good for hydration in cold climates, which suits me to a "T" (it's starting to get quite cold here in canberra).  It's supposed to help with fine lines and blemishes, which sounds perfect for my skin.  Very excited to try this out.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse and Creme Merveillance-RRP $24.95 and $64.95-Sample sizes

 These are written as 2 separate samples.  The Huile Prodigieuse is a multipurpose oil (body, hair, face etc) and the Creme Merveillance is a face cream for visible expression lines.  I've heard marvellous things about the oil, and the cream sounds interesting.

Teeez and Chella Swatches

So, for a box that looked relatively empty, it contained 4 full sized products and 3 samples, valued at $71.95 for the full sized products alone.  I'm excited about every product in the box, and can't wait to try them all.  

Have you received yours yet?  Any different colours/products?
