Limited Edition Flare Mani-Pedi Kit

by - April 24, 2014

Hi Makeupnuts! Okay, how much of a beauty junkie does someone have to be to order something and forget about it? Huh? LOL Well that's me. Ooops... but the Flare Mani-Pedi Kit was such a great deal for $25 I guess I just had to have it.

When I picked up my April Topbox from the post office,  I was asking myself "Why is the box so big?" When I got it home and opened it and saw the Flare box, I was like 'Oh yeah DumDum you ordered the Flare Mani-Pedi Kit'. I ordered it during a late - I couldn't sleep - night. Those are dangerous for me but I remember why I wanted it. In the early part of March, Topbox offered a limited edition box curated by Flare. For $25, you get an annual subscription to Flare magazine ($12.95) plus a ton of Sally Hansen mani goodness. I already alternate between subbing to Flare and Lou Lou so that took care of that expense for me (kind of - in my beauty junkie reasoning).
Of course I once I remembered I ordered it, I also recalled what was included;
  • Sally Hansen Cuticle Eraser & Balm
  • Sally Hansen Dry & Go Drops
  • Sally Hansen Nail Shaper

Six Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes (left to right);
  • Strawberry Shields
  • Tickle Me Pink
  • Get Juiced
  • I Lilac You
  • Jaded
  • Trouble Maker

Oh these look so fun for summer! Even Strawberry Shields, which I thought was a weird choice for this box. But I already have plans to use it for a Canada Day NOTD. Interestingly, these are my first Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polishes. I can't wait to try them.

The bonus item, for the first 500 orders, was a So Susan 8 Hour Cheek Stain.
The cheek stain is a vibrant pink. It claims 8 hour wear, water resistant, fragrance free, suitable for oily skin, no phthalates, made with grapeseed oil, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic.
I think this will be great for summer wear. On my first swatch, the cheek stain glided on pretty smooth and blended out easily. I will be using my MAC 187 brush to apply this to avoid any harsh edges that the stick may leave behind which can be a pain to blend out.

And the last item was a one year subscription to Flare, which showed up today. That was pretty cool timing.

For $25, I find the Flare Mani-Pedi Kit a great value. It includes some awesome summer shades, some great nail care items and an annual sub to Flare.
The Flare Mani-Pedi Kit is still availabe to anyone, including the USA for $25 (free shipping). It just won't include the the So Susan cheek stain. If you are interested, go to Topbox/Limited Edition.
Now the only question is which polish to start with? Get Juiced is calling my name....teresa put me on put me on...
