The Parcel by Marie Claire Spring Edit 2014 Box Reveal & Review

The Parcel by Marie Claire Beauty Box pretty much works the same way as all the other beauty boxes except that it's a seasonal subscription box which means it's not so heavy on the pocket (like other subscription boxes can be) and the products are handpicked by the editorial team so you're guaranteed to receive on trend products for the season.

The first box arrived in early October. There was a total of 8 items 3 of which were full sized products. Here's what was in my Spring Edit 2014 box.

The Parcel | Spring Edit 2014
  1. L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Purse-Size Hairspray.  RRP $4.95, 75ml. Received Full Size

    There is a reason why this product is a HG for celebrities and beauty aficionados alike. It has great hold without making hair stiff and also brushes out easily. I also like the pleasant fragrance and the iconic gold can. Definitely a product I can recommend. I don't use hairspray often so I like that it's purse-size. It's handy to carry around and because of it's compact size it doesn't take up much room.

  2. O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Desperately Seeking Sequins.  RRP $19.95, 15ml. Received Full Size

    The included pamphlet had Gwen Stefani's range with OPI listed as the included polish so I was a teency bit disappointed that I hadn't received a shade from the new range. But I'm not too bummed out because Desperately Seeking Sequins is a gorgeous glitter polish that reminds me of an American Christmas with it's flake like silver specks.

  3. LANCOME Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector. RRP $97, 30ml. Received 7ml

    This award winning product claims to visibly correct wrinkles, pores and the skin's texture in 6 weeks. I still haven't used the samles I already have of this product so I can't really comment on it's effectiveness. However Lancome is a brand that often delivers on it's claim so I have no doubt that it will deliver on it's claim about correcting the pores and the skin's texture. I don't really believe that creams can reverse wrinkles (or stretch marks) so I wouldn't hold my breath about that claim.

  4. BENEFIT They're Real! Push-Up Line. RRP $35.00. Received 10g

    I was a such a noob when I used the liner sample. I had to google it a few times and watch a few youtube videos on how to use it. When I finally squeezed some product out I actually liked how the product glided over my lids. The sample size is a little awkward to manouver but from watching the youtube videos the full size product shouldn't be too difficult to use.

    BENEFIT They're Real! Mascara. RRP $38.00. Received 3.0g

    If you follow my instagram you'd see that not too long ago I posted a photo of my mascara drawer...I literally have enough to last me 1 (if not 2) years so I haven't gotten around to trying this out yet.

  5. REVLON Colorstay Moisture Stain. RRP $25.95 Received 8.0ml Full Size

    I received the shade Miami Fever which I would describe as a fluro coral colour. I haven't decided whether I really like the product or not but it's not bad. Maybe it's the shade that's left me on the fence with this one but I'll keep using it so I can give it a proper review.

  6. PANTENE Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo & Conditioner. Received Mini Sample Size

    This Pantene duo makes an appearance in almost all beauty boxes so I have a few of these in stock. I don't really like receiving this duo in beauty boxes anymore but hopefully it'll come in handy when I go way on holidays. 

I really liked that the premiere of this box contained 3 full sized products and the contents more than cover the cost price of the beauty box. My favourite was the OPI glitter polish. I've decided to subscribe to this box again so I'm looking froward to the Summer 2015 Edit which will be sent out mid December. All in all I would recommend this box to a friend. Hopefully they continue to deliver great products.
