Violet Box November 2013

This month's Violet Box is rather exciting. It has products that I've never used before and 4 out of the 5 beauty products are full sized (yay!). The contents were packaged in the company's very pretty and reusable box. I really appreciate how Violet Box makes an effort in wrapping and packaging.

Violet Box November 2013 | Packaging
Violet Box November 2013 | Box Contents
Body Armour, Tailor, Model Co., Guess
  1. BODY ARMOUR Face Cream 50ml RRP$32.00 (received full size)
    "Formulated as an after treatment moisturiser but can also be used as a daily moisturiser"

    I think I'll reserve this for at home facials =). I love the pump bottle with a turn-lock nozzle. The scent reminds me of Veet salon wax, and I love the scent of that so this is a non-issue for me. Really happy to receive this because it more than pays for the $22.95 per month cost.

  2. TAILOR Detoxifying Facial Treatment RRP $40.00 for a pack of 10 (Received 1 mask)
    "Unclogs pores and gently exfoliates sensitive skin"

    This mask smells divine and spa-like (you know that aroma-therapy/natural scent that spas have?). I can't wait to try this one out!

  3. MODELCO. Colour Box Eye Pencil in Black RRP $18.00 (Full Size)
    "High pigment and long wearing without dragging or pulling..."
    I love that this has an inbuilt sharpener!

  4. MODELCO. Blush in Amaretto Sunset 03 RRP $18.00 (Full Size)
    "Create a beaming and rosy glow on the go with a built in compact mirror"

    The dark dusty rose shade I got compliments my skin tone. I think it would suit medium-dark skin tones as it may be too bold and mucky looking for fair tones. I love that the blush's compact mirror swivels out so that the blush and mirror is both opened at the same time. The swivel mirror is also handy & hygienic because you can keep the blush covered if you just want to use the mirror. I have a lot of compacts and this is the first of it's kind. Very unique!

  5. GUESS Perfume Samples Guess Girl & Guess Night

    Guess Girl is a true glamour girl scent. It's fun, flirty and fruity. I would have loved it so much more if the perfume sample wasn't in a sachet. It's a little awkward trying to apply perfume when it oozes out of a packet. Not very clever packaging...

    Guess Night smells really masculine. It's got that sexy men's fragrance scent to it that isn't over powering. Definitely worth getting for the man in your life.

    I really loved this box! Seriously Violet Box just seems to keep impressing me. Definitely my favourite out of all my subscription boxes.

  1. You've been busy today! ;) Glad that you're happy with the Violet box. I would love to try them but I limit myself to one subscription box per year, otherwise I'd get them all!

    1. haha I sure have been Mel. The Violet box has been the best so far...I know what you mean. Next year I'm going to cut back on my subscriptions...The cost really adds up over the year...

  2. As far as value for money goes, I like that VB seems to provide a number of full sized items. What do you think of ModelCo products?

    1. VioletBox definitely does have more full sized products so I always feel like I'm getting good value for money.

      I didn't have ModelCo. makeup prior to receiving this. The eyeliner was pretty good and felt comfortable to apply, but I've only used it once...I remember when ModelCo. was mainly pushing their self tanners so that's probably why I never identified with the brand.

      What do you think of ModelCo. products? Have you used them before? ❤

  3. Nice review! I unsubscribed to Violet Box a few months ago, this isn't a bad box though! :)

    1. I was very happy with this month's box but I'll have to decide soon on which subscription to axe...that's if I have enough will power to cut the subscriptions haha....
