You just know this is a beauty box when you receive it. Most people would automatically know, but for those of us (or just me) who order stuff online instead of doing work in the office, it can be difficult to tell what's in the myriad packages lying in wait. But yes, the package has the shape and heft to ensure you know precisely what you're getting excited about.
[Mivva Beauty Box - June 2013]
Such a pretty box! It even came all bubble-wrapped, which is brilliant foresight, but I was too excited to open it. I am not one who responds well to anticipation.
[Colourific Painting Edition]
[Product Description & Pricing]
Oh the anticipation!
[Mivva's June 2013 Beauty Box Contents]
Once the boxes went out, they announced on their Facebook page that they would soon unveil what the purpose of these are. I like such interactive activities!
[Contents of the box]
[Liese's Hair Dye in Creamy Beige - Full Size]
This was a real disappointment for me because I don't dye my hair. But the fact that it's a full sized product would definitely be a boon to those who do.
[Beautymate's Black Pearl & Calendula Whitening Nano Mask - Sample Size]
This is a really hefty package for one mask which is excellent! The only time I've tried anything calendula was with Kiehl's toner and I loved it so I'm quite excited about trying this out! I also love the fact that it's a peel-off mask because it aids easy removal and cleansing! It's also fantastic for travelling, i.e. on long flights.
[Skin79's Mini Lip Gloss - Full Size]
At least I think it's a full sized product. It's very beautifully packaged though!
My camera isn't picking up on just how pretty the rose design on this is. I am quite enamoured with it.
Unfortunately, there's no colour name/number written on the packaging...or there is and it's in Korean so I can't read it anyway. But look at it! It's a lovely shade of red with a tad bit of shimmer to it. Very pretty in the pot!
[Swatch of Skin79's Mini Lip Gloss]
And very pretty when applied! The texture isn't sticky at all. It really is quite moisturising and reasonably sheer but buildable. It's a nice shade which allows you to get that rosy tint to your lips that we all crave. It's a shade that would work well for all skin types too!
[Enuca's Eye Essential Quad - Full Size]
[1 Cream Base & 3 Shadows]
This is an Italian brand that I have never heard of and I wasn't expecting much from the outer packaging, but opening it tells you a whole different story. It's so pretty! The cream shade is a shadow base while the other three are complementary shadows. Are they any good?
[Swatches of Enuca's Eye Essential Quad]
Absolutely! These were very lightly swiped to get this level of pigment and the shadows are very smooth and seem quite long-lasting. They also seem like they would do a good job of being blended so I'm really stoked about trying these out. I really do have a fetish for eye shadows! I'm very curious about the cream base as well. I've tried some before but they were an extremely oily consistency which didn't work out for me (combination skin, and all), but this seems like it would set better. I can't wait to test it out!
This box was RM38 and overall, I'm really quite happy with this box, even with the disappointment of the hair dye. I'm quite pleased with the fact that I now have a 3 month subscription to it and I can't wait to see what's in the July edition!
You can subscribe for them Month, Quarterly or Annually and with the latter two you get additional points which can be redeemed against future boxes.
