Violet Box October 2013 Photos And Review

My very first Violet box finally arrived in the mail and boy was I pleasant surprised. I'm currently subscribed to three different beauty boxes, I just love receiving surprise packages! Violet Box has been around for a while but I thought I'd finally give it a go and I was so glad that I did because there are so many goodies in this month's box. I've noticed that towards the end of the year, subscription boxes include a lot of better things. 

Violet Box October 2013 Packaging
Violet Box October 2013 Card
It was packaged in a white outer box and the contents were in a black collectible box with a purple ribbon. I really love that the packaging for this box is reusable, not only is it handy but it makes me feel like I'm getting value for my money haha.
Violet Box October 2013 Contents
There were 5 contents in this month's box and 4 of which are full sized products - score! Without further ado here are the goodies that I got...
  1. BE A BOMBSHELL  Money Money RRP $18.00
    "A high pigmented long lasting formula for all day wear. The shadows can be used as an eyeliner if applied with a wet brush tip. The colour Money Money reminds me of green american dollar bills, which is probably where the name came from. Money Money also looks like a khaki army green with a slight gold glimmer. It's highly pigmented that after 1 swatch the colour was deep and opaque.
  2. SAVOIR FAIRE Lipgloss Rapture Peppermint RRP $25.00 

    I've always wanted to try something from this cosmetic line when I found out Jessica Campbell was the face of the brand. If you remember from my Versatile Blogger Award Tag I dressed the gorgeous Miss Campbell in a couple of fashion shows. Savoir Faire is a French word meaning "the ability to act or speak appropriately in social situations" and this brand absolutely encapsulates that. Granted, this is the only product I have in the line the packaging and the brand promotion are both classy and elegant. 

    Rapture Peppermint is a true red shade with a highly glossy and opaque finish. It's peppermint scented, which I'm not crazy about but it's not a deal breaker. The packaging is in an acrlyic tube with a doe-foot applicator. The brand logo is quite elegant too, if your initials are SF these would be perfect for you hehe
  3. JOHN PLUNKETT Super Wrinkle Cream RRP $28.95/50g
    An intensive night cream enriched with Vitamins C and E that helps to reduce fine lines. I received a 20mL sample which I will happily try when I finish all the other wrinkle creams I have lined up. As you know I like to try anything that will reverse or prevent the signs of ageing 
  4. APVITA Face Masks RRP $7.90/2 Dose Sachet
    These face masks from Greece are paraben & propylene glycol free. I received 2 Orange face masks which encourage radiance.
  5. OXYPLEX Pressed Powder RRP $70.00
    A multi purpose anti-ageing mineral face powder which can be used as a full coverage foundation or a bronzer. I received the colour Amber which is a perfect bronzing shade for me. I'm so excited to try this powder! It looks like a great shade + it's anti ageing (woot!) 
All in all I am SUPER pleased with this month's contents especially receiving 4, actually 5 because I got 2 face masks. My favourites was the Savoir Faire lipgloss and the Oxyplex Pressed Powder. You can subscribe for your own Violet Box here. It costs $22.95 each month including postage.
