Violet Box February 2013 Review

Violet Box has once again impressed me with the contents of their February 2014 beauty box. I'll miss my monthly surprises from Violet Box. I really liked getting the collectible boxes and I adored the packaging but I had to choose just one beauty box to stay subscribed to. Anyway, here is what was in this month's Violet Box.

Violet Box February 2014

  1. BE A BOMBSHELL - The One Stick in 'Girl Crush'. RRP $21.00 (Received Full Size)

    "An all in one multiple stick with a smooth texture, Apply on eyelids, cheeks or lips for the perfect pop of colour anywhere!"

    The formula of this multipurpose product was smooth and non drying. On tanned skin Girl Crush is perfect as a cheek highlighter. I personally didn't like it applied on the eyelids. It left my eyes looking like a 10 year old girl who got a hold of glittery eyeshadow. On my lips the colour was too light. The effect on my cheeks reminds me of  my NARS Orgasm blush. Girl crush is a pretty soft pink shade that I think will work well with many skin tones.
  2. BE A BOMBSHELL - Lip Crayon in 'Trophy Wife'. RRP $19.00 (Received Full Size)

    The lip crayon applied smoothly on my lips. I did however feel a tingle after application, but that's just because my lips are quite sensitive to some cosmetics. Trophy Wife is a soft shimmery pink colour. The shade looked awkward on me. I think this shade would suit fairer skin tones.
  3. RED CARPET KOLOUR. RRP $49.95, 150ml (Received 2 Sachets)

    An innovative, non transfer all-over body lotion that claims to provide coverage for pigmentation, veins, cellulite, stretchmarks, age spots and wrinkles.

    Unfortunately, it did not deliver on it's claims. I received the shade Medium which was a perfect match for my skin tone. The cream was pretty much  just a shimmer lotion. I certainly wouldn't apply it all over the body. I think on a night out it would look good around the decolletage. Didn't cover any stretchmarks or pigmentation, but it left a pretty shimmer.
  4. WOTNOT - Facial Wipes. RRP $7.95, 25 Wipes (Received 5 Wipes)

    I love this brand. I received this from one of my beauty boxes last month (I forget which one). I'll use this the next time I go away for a weekend trip. These facial wipes are excellent for those with sensitive skin.
  5. NUXE CREME NIRVANESQUE RRP $49.95, 50ml (Received 15ml Sample)

    Claims to de-stress and relax expression lines. I don't have prominent lines on my face so I didn't try this product. I might give this to my mum to try...
  6. APHELIA OASIS ACNE SOLUTION RRP $49.00, 50ml (Received 2ml Sample)

    A herbal acne solution that claims to  control acne and blemishes. The sample is in a mini roll on bottle, which I think might be a little unhygienic especially if you're going to apply it on blemishes...At present I don't have any blemishes *heavenly music* but come the end of the month I know I will be testing this out and fingers crossed that it lives up to it's claim.

    Violet Box also included a bonus heart shaped lollipop 

    I'll miss my Violet Box subscriptions, especially the very handy collectible boxes. I enjoyed the contents of the boxes. There was always full sized products included in the box which made the $22.95 subscription fee worth it. The boxes came on time as well. All in all I was very happy with the service of Violet Box and I may subscribe again in the near future. If you're interested in subscribing, head on over to their website: www.violetbox,com,au
