Luxe Box Winter 2013

Yes I know this almost a month late! Ooops! I had this box all pulled apart and played with before I realized I forgot to post about it. Hehe.

The presentation of the Luxe Box is absolutely gorgeous. The elegant white box with the satiny pouch bag that our luxurious samples come in is a great treat.

I was going to cancel this box but I thought just one more more. I am glad I didn’t cancel as I was pleasantly surprised by some of the samples in this box. Plus I needed a couple more boxes to finish creating dividers in my makeup drawers LOL. These are the perfect size to put in my Meike drawers.

Luxe Box Winter 2013
Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Mascara, CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm, Essie Carry On

CoverGirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Ruby Twist full size
Full Size: $7
I liked this jumbo lip crayon so much I went out and bought another one in Rose Twist. I did a little review on them here. I am still obsessed with Rose Twist.

Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara (black) deluxe sample
Full Size: 9ml/$19
I found this mascara to be okay. I didn’t find it horrible but it didn’t shine like my two number ones; Benefit’s They’re Real and Marcelle’s Xtension Plus mascaras. I didn’t find it to be that volumizing but it did give me a bit of length. The only sad part was at the end of the day I had some flaking so that would be a no right there for me. I did like the hourglass shaped brush though.

Essie Nail Polish in Carry On   full size
Full Size: $11
I am always happy to get Essie polishes. This one was a dark purple burgundy creme.

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream   deluxe sample
Full Size: 150ml/$30
I love LOVE this hand cream. I love the scent and how well it moisturizes my wintery dry hands for a long time. I have used this particular one before and it was a purse staple. I just need to get over to L’Occitane to get me some more. This month is L’Occitane’s 20 year anniversary so they are having some sales in-store and online.

EVOLVh UltraShine Moisture Shampoo deluxe sample
Full Size: 250ml/$24
I have tried the EVOLVh shampoos before. They are pretty good. I just think there are cheaper alternatives out there. Yeah I know I am cheap. I wish we could have gotten the accompanying conditioner!?! Maybe in our next box? LOL.

Loose Button Gel Eye Pads and Mereadesso All-in-one Moisturizer

Mereadesso All-in-one Moisturizer deluxe sample
Full Size: 12ml/$28
Okay I have to be honest here. I lost this sample. And now that I see that the 12ml sample we received is $28 I am a little sad. I am going to go look for it again. Hopefully it fell behind the bed in the spare room.
My initial thoughts are the only thing this all-in-one moisturizer seems to be missing is SPF. I NEED TO FIND IT!! ARGGHH Sooo bummed.

Loose Button Gel Eye Pads   full size
Full Size: $30
These were cute and they would be good to have for puffy eyes. Butttt $30 for a pair???  {{{Snicker}}} I already had a gel mask that I bought from the dollarstore for a dollar! It almost looks like these eye pads were the cut outs from that dollarstore mask. But on the positive, these do work for eye disaster days. I keep mine in the freezer. If I need it I toss the mask in a pillowcase and slap it on my peepers. I use the pillow case because a) Who know what touched it in the freezer HEHE and b) its too cold to put right on the face so you need the cloth buffer. Frozen eyeball not good.

Essie polish – check. CoverGirl LipPerfection – check. L’Occitane Shea Butter – check.

I am pretty please with this seasons Luxe Box. I will find that Mereadesso moisturizer, I will! We did get an offer from Panty By Post but I am not really interested in getting a monthly panty subscription O_o and that's all I will say about that.

If you are interested in signing up for a Luxe Box, you can head over to and complete your profile. Loose Button Luxe Boxes are $26/quarterly, $25/semi-annually and $24/annually.

It was a great December pick me up. Soo I guess I will be sticking around for another box :)

  1. I completely forget to cancel and now I'm renewed for another year! Oh well, I like the Luxe Box so it's ok! I understand your feelings about the Panty by Post subscription...I can choose my own underwear thank you very much! And it's pretty expensive for what you get! I liked the polish and moisturizer though. I will post my box soon, but from what I remember instead of the CG lip pencil, I got this giant bath product. It obviously wasn't too memorable ;-)

    1. LOL yep I like my grannie panties HAHA just kidding.
      I finally found the Mereadesso moisturizer! It fell behind my makeup table onto the cord catch or whatever they call it. YAY good thing I dust once in awhile!
