Lust Have it! August Box *

Hey guys,

I know this is a very late post and most of you would have already seen a lot of Australian bloggers blog about this, but I thought I would add in and give my views too. For those of you who don't know what Lust Have it! is check my post here for more info.

I recently received my August Lust Have it! box. This is the first box I have received after I discontinued their service in February 2013. The August box was sent to me for review and because I am highly impressed I wanted to share my thoughts with all of you. Lets get into the contents of this month's box.

The packaging is a beautiful mint blue box with a floral pattern on it, great to store knick-knacks or use as a pretty display. Inside the box were all my items wrapped in black tissue paper. It also comes with a card that explains each product, its uses and retail value of the full size product. Below are the items I received and what they are used for.

Revlon Photoready Skinlights face Illuminator:
Full size RRP $29.95, 30ml
This Illuminator is a lightweight liquid illuminator that works to instantly brighten the skin. Designed to enhance skin's natural radiance, it boosts natural illuminosity, minimizes flaws, enhances skin with a hint of sheer colour and protects the skin from harsh environments.

The colour I received is in 200 Pink lights

Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup:
Full size RRP $25.95, 30ml
So light, it melts right in, working in harmony with your skin's unique tone and texture for an even, flawless finish. Vitamin and antioxidant- packed to pump up your natural glow. Available in 12 true-to-tone shades.

This is a sample of four shades of the new Nearly Naked foundation by Revlon.

KMS California Free shape shampoo:
Full size RRP $28.95, 300ml
Create unlimited style transformations with hot tools. Styles last until next wash. The Free Shape Shampoo increases manageability and pliability for preparation for heat styling.

I received a 12ml sachet which is great for traveling, saves so much space.

KMS California Free Shape Add Volume Volumizing Spray:
Full Size RRP $31.95, 200ml
This spray increases volume and provides intense fullness, ideal for super fine hair.

The deluxe sample is 30ml which is great to test out and see if it actually works before buying a full size.

Sinful Colours Nail Enamel:
Full size RRP 4.95, 15ml
Sinful colours nail enamel has a long wearing, chip-resistant, professional formula and is available in 69 runway inspired shades.

This is another full size item in the box and the shade I received is in 369 Ruby Ruby which is a bright red.

La Roche Posay Thermal Spring water:
Full Size RRP $ 21.95, 300ml
This product soothes sensitive skin irritated by outside factors and helps prevent skin aging. It is also a natural anti-oxidant.

Yet another deluxe sample to test out. It is basically like MAC's Fix Plus, but this one can be applied all over the body.

La Roche Posay Lipikar Blam AP:
Full Size RRP $37.95, 400ml
Lipikar Balm is a lipid-replenishing body balm that offers a 24hours anti-scratching efficacy. Its quick-dress texture for fast absorption into the skin is adapted for babies and children.

The sample I received is quite decently sized, usually we get samples of 5ml but this one is 15ml and it will last quite a few uses.

I also received a card from Lush which gave me a free sample of any Lush moisturizer or cleanser I would like to try. So I went to the Lush store and got the Enzymion Moisturizer which is for oily skin. Since they gave me enough to last only two uses, I have already used it up. Can't say I found any difference to my skin because I did not use it much. Hopefully I will get the full size soon and try it out.

Out of all the products I an extremely excited to try out the La Roche Posay products and the Revlon Nearly Naked foundation.  I love these beauty box subscriptions, they provide you with so many new products to try out. Overall the value of the box is way more than what you actually pay for it. With Lust Have it! I have always received at least one full size item that covers the price of the whole box. I am totally impressed and would highly recommend everyone to check it out. 

I have a special coupon for first timers. Just use the code DAZZLE at the checkout to get $5 off your first box. You can also use the link on the right side of this blog.
