Lust Have It! May 2014 - Just received it this morning!!

  I had a terrible experience dealing with GlossyBox back in 2012 and it was one of the worst online stores. It forgot to mail out my subscription twice and kept sending me repeated products. I was frustrated, as frustrated as getting shitty products from eBay, and I stopped my subscription with no regret. 
  But this month Lust Have It! had an offer for new subscribers - $9.95 for your first box + your choice of shade (Mary Kay lip lacuer). So tempted and I am once again on the beauty box bandwagon.

Delivery : Moderate. Took about 3 days to deliver from Sydney to Melbourne
Price : New subscription offer $9.95 (RRP $19.95)
Packaging : No pretty box or plastic makeup bag but a black box and wrapping paper. 
  Well, at least all recyclable and it is good for the environment.
Products : 5 full size products!! You got to select the shade of your MaryKay lip lacquer! 

Mary Kay Lip Lacquer in Chai Latte (RRP $22, Full size 4g)
I chose Chai Latte and it really is a lovely glossy nude. As pretty as the swatches online!

Premium Spa Face & Body Mask 
(RRP $14.99, Full size 150g)
  I was so excited when I saw it in my box! My skin has been quite sensitive lately and I need something to clarify my skin without irritating it. It seems like a decent product for my need. No harsh chemicals and also made in Australia.

The Cosmetic Kitchen Pure Mineral Blush in Strawberry
(RRP $34.95, Full size 6g)
  Another Australian made product :) !! When I opened the cap, I realized the powder went everywhere since the sticker wasn't placed properly. Ehhh... it might be a good way to prove the packaging is cute but also functional at the same time so no powder leaked out *over optimistic* ??? Although it looks like a plum shade, the pigmentation is sheer and it appeals as a dusty rose with nice sheen on my skin. 

Coral Colours Eyebrow Definer Pencil in 246 Dark Brown 
(RRP $7.95. Made in China. Full size yet no volume listed)
  I am not sure what I am going to do with it? The shade is too warm and red which wont suit my brows. Neither I can see myself using it as eyeliner since the texture is quite 'thick' and it does move around pretty easily. Very mediocre brow pencil.

Coral Colours Eyeshadow Quartet in Vibrant Forest 
(RRP $7.95, Full size 3.2g)
  Its cheap packaging really didn't catch my eye, yet I started to like this quad after making a swatch. Beautiful shades and moderate pigmentation. Quite shimmery but not glittery or chalky.

I must say this month Lust Have It! box is excellent and I am very satisfied with the products I received! I cannot guarantee I would continue subscribing since currently I try to cut down my "Retail Therapy session" and only allow myself to purchase ONE makeup product every month!
