When I was contacted by Alexia from Los Angeles Mamma blog about trying her new subscription box, I was a little hesitant. I was hesitant because I can only imagine how difficult it is to break into the subscription box industry and curate great boxes that are worth it for consumers. However, since she is starting out, I decided to try out one box and see what it was all about. Luckily, I had seen a few posts from Elizabeth at everything and nothin’, so I knew that past boxes were great. Read on to see what I got in the December box!
This lip product is described as a nude-peach which is my go-to color. It is something between a gloss and a liquid lipstick, which I am happy about as I don’t love glosses. Beautiful color that I am happy to have.
Pur Cosmetics Chateau Cheek Stain, Peach Bellini (RV $26, on sale at Ulta for $10.4).
It wasn’t until I was writing up this post and looking for pricing of this that I saw there is a brush at the other end of the cheek stain! In general I like products like this that are easy to build and blend, since it tends to look more natural that way. It looks like a very sheer bronzer when applied to my skin which makes it perfect for warming up my skin when I don’t have a ton of time.
Biossance The Konjac Sponge: Gentle Facial Sponge (RV $15).
Urban Decay Native Naked Flushed (RV $32, this color is no longer available).
I think this must be an older color combination as I couldn’t find it anywhere. I am beyond thrilled to receive this palette. I have the knock-off one from Sleek cosmetics and I adore it- it’s perfect for travel as it contains a blush, bronzer and highlighter all in a compact package. The Native palette has been described to work well with light complexions, but I think I could just layer it if I find I need more color.
The boxes cost $39.99 plus shipping with a promised value of up to $150. Assuming full retail prices, this box was valued at $127. If, however, you look at the sale prices, the value goes a little bit down, but it is still a great value.
What do you think of this new subscription box? Do you plan on checking it out?
