Summer 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box
Summer 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box
The same day my Topbox arrived so did my Summer Luxe Box. Thank god! It eased my disappointment from my June Topbox.

What I found interesting is that even though I didn’t opt in for any of the upgrades I got a box similar to the Hawaiian Punch Limited Edition box. I received all the same products except for the Teeez products. Instead I got a full sized Eyeko liner and a full size Be a Bombshell One-Stick. I can live with that! The Eyeko liner and Be a Bombshell blush are both products I enjoy anyhow.

products laid out (forgot the tweezers!)
Let’s get this party started;

Summer 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box
Be a Bombshell The One-Stick in Southern Belle
Summer 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box
 Be a Bombshell The One-Stick in Southern Belle
Full Size / $16
An all-in-one multiple stick with a smooth texture. Apply to eyelids, cheeks or lips for the perfect pop of color anywhere!
You are supposed to be able to wear this One Stick on your eyes, cheeks and lips. It is sort like the Nars Multiples. Although I do not own any Nars products so I really cannot compare. So how about I just shut up about that? HA
I like Southern Belle better than the One Stick I received last December in my Ipsy bag. That was Flustered, a hot fuchsia pink, while Southern Belle is a more peachy pink. I wore it to work yesterday as my blush and I used a lip brush to put some on my lips. I think I prefer using these One Sticks as cream blushes. It suits me better. Lip wear was like a regular lipstick. It stayed on until I drank something.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black
Retail Value: $19.00 (Full Size)
The easy-to-apply, liquid eyeliner pen allows you to create thick feline flicks or fine defined lines to accentuate your eyes. With the unique long-lasting formula featuring key ingredient Sodium Hyaluronate for a gratifying, colour-intense smudge-proof finish.
I have gotten this in a Luxe Box before (but I don't care!) and I have purchased one myself at Sephora. I love this eyeliner. It makes the perfect thin line for me. The previous two liners I have had lasted a long time and I am glad to get another one. The Eyeko was on my wish list of stuff to get. (It’s a long list). This is the one and only pen liner I can use easily. Most other liners I cannot get to work for me. I think it may have to do with the length of the felt tip. I kind of lay the Eyeko one down lengthwise and drag that across my lid to get a nice even line.  I am pen liner challenged.

Nicole by OPI Something About Spring
Sample Value: $3.99 (3.75 mL)
When I saw this hot pink, it bloom my mind! Nicole by OPI puts salon quality at your fingertips…from the colorful world of OPI.
This sample is tiny but I think it is tres cute. I did try it out and I had to do three coats. Did anyone else have problems with bald patches when applying? I have never had an OPI polish weird out on me like that.

Summer 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box
Barefoot Venus Coconut Kiss Macadamia Oil Hand Cream
Barefoot Venus Coconut Kiss Macadamia Oil Hand Cream
Retail Value: $6.00 (60 mL)
Relieve dry and chafed skin with our nurturing and enriched lotion. Smooth it on and feel how quick the SOS is called off. Created with: Macadamia Nut Oil, Sesame Seed Oil and Wheat Germ. This smells great and I can always use another hand cream. Me loves coconut. This was slightly a bit greasier than I am used to and it does takes awhile for the lotion to sink into the skin. So no immediate web browsing on your tablet! But afterwards my hands felt great.

Summer 2014 Loose Button Luxe Box
Luxe Box sample packets; Nexxus, Eslor, Crest
Nexxus Color Assure Sulfate-Free System
Sample Value: $2.00 (2 x 5 mL & 1 x 9 mL)
Introducing Nexxus® Color Assure™ with their first Pre-Wash Primer. Finally, up to 2x longer hair colour protection* that helps lock colour at the core of hair.
Really? A Pre- Wash Hair primer now? Another step? I already hate the current two step practice of shampoo and conditioner. Now there is another step???  HAHA I guess I am having a hard time wrapping my head around a primer, that you wash right out?  Don’t get me wrong, I love getting shampoo samples but I just don’t know. I guess I will have to try it before I knock it right? Okay off the primer rant, I do like that these are sulfate free and made to make you hair colour last longer.
Eslor Introductory Collection
Sample Value: $15.00 (4 x 5 mL)
Hydrate, protect and treat your skin with the Eslor Introductory Collection. 100% Free of Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES).
We received a foil pack of each introductory step; Soothing Refiner and Cleanser, Replenishing Scrub, Comforting Mask and the Soothing Cream. 
I sort of wish I had a few more days worth of these sample foil packs. I thought it was a nice system. My face felt very clean and soft. Why does eSlor sound so familiar? Did I get a Eslor sample before? I can’t remember! The full sizes range between $30 and S70. Yoinks!

Loose Button Angled Tweezers $13
I can always use more tweezers. These seem to be pretty well made and sturdy. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of them but I started playing with them right away and totally forgot to put it back in the box. Ooops.

Crest 3D Whitestrips and Toothpaste x3 ($5 each)
Yeah I am getting quite a collection of Whitestrips going here. That’s okay.  now have enough for a five day run! YAY. White teeth here I come!

So there you go my friends, another Loose Button Luxe Box. It was beautifully quite packed with samples that I will use and enjoy.

Luxe Box is available to Canadians; $26/qtr, $50/6mths or $96/annually.
