Lust Have It May 2016

Afternooon all!

If you read my Parcel post yesterday, it'll come as no surprise that i've had my LHI bag for almost 2 weeks.  So it did arrive in May, today's just the first time in a while i've felt up to sitting at the computer.
Another ubiquitous pink bag.  I actually found a use for these the other day, i washed yarn from a jumper i deconstructed in them.  Worked perfectly!
Razzamatazz Perfectly Matte Opaque Leggings-11.95

I've seen other bloggers state they'd have preferred another beauty item over this, but i'm quite happy with the tights.  They fit me!  They're fairly comfortable, and they're perfect for the winter months.  I'd probably be upset if it happened regularly, or the leggings took the place of a beauty item, but as an added bonus, love it!
'Mystery Item' Soak Body Lotion-?

If you search through my LHI or Violet Box reviews you'll find this somewhere.  Others received an Urban Skincare Co body balm.  Both are previous samples, and seem to be a 'holy shit, need to include something else' sample.  Or they're using up leftovers.  This isn't a terrible body lotion, but it's inclusion is just a bit blah.
Lollipops Baume Grenadine-$7.45-full size

This is a tinted ?balm?gloss?oil?.  Smells sugary sweet, gives your lips a lovely hint of colour, and leaves them moisturised.  It feels like an oil on and is non sticky.
Teeez Spectrum of Stars Eye Shadow-$29-full size

The hero product!  I love Teeez products, and this is no different.  Firstly, the packaging is amazing, as i've come to expect from Teeez.  And the product is wonderful, highly pigmented, buttery soft, and easy to blend.  Mine's in the shade Pearly Mist, which is a pewter colour.
Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen-$20-full size

This is the 3rd? 4th? eyeliner i've received from Starlooks, although the first pen (i think).  This one is brown, it lasts forever (the swatch did, at least), and it seems relatively easy to use.  I just wish LHI would lay off the eyeliners for a bit, the april box had a brown liner too, and there have been more blacks than i can poke a stick at.
PHR Recovery Leave In Moisturiser-$35.95-sample size (LHI are calling this a 'deluxe size'. Deluxe my foot!  A satchet is not deluxe, it's cheap, nasty, and can normally be picked up for free.  Thankfully LHI have stopped sending them out most of the time, but at least call a spade a spade).

I've tried this before thanks to Violet Box.  It worked wonderfully on my hair, but the satchet is single use when you have hair like mine.
Eyeliner, eyeshadow, lip balm
All in all it's a decent box.  A couple of new brands, some new products from previous brands, 1 repeat and leggings :).  The value is certainly there, and i'll use everything in my box.

As it's taken me so long to post this, we're not far off the next LHI!  Can't wait!!
