March 2012 Lust Have It box arrived and it looks a beauty!
From what I can tell they are all full size products, no skimpy sample sizes here!
1Skin Solutions Lip Balm in Vanilla
My opinion… It was ‘ok’.I’m always keen to try a new lip balm and with vanilla being one of my favourite flavours and smells I was a bit excited to try this one.
It felt smooth to apply but it didn’t really taste of vanilla. But the big downer for me was the main ingredient is petroleum.
I may not really know all the details but I’m pretty sure using petroleum in products fell out of fashion because it’s not good for you…(?)
Regardless, I don’t use products with petroleum so I threw this one in the bin.
Davroe Hair Wellness Moisture Sense Argan Oil
Argan Oil or Moroccan Oil has been a popular ‘new’ product for a while…but I don’t see the fuss.
I applied it to the ends of my hair after washing but when my hair dried it just left my hair oily and gross.
I also tried it on dry hair, applying it before using my hair straightener. It was better but again I was not impressed.
Karpati Dito Nail Lacquer
I have never found a nail polish that didn’t chip within 24 hours and I still haven’t.
I do really like this polish though. It dried very quickly and was extremely easy to apply, especially with the funky bottle holder that sits between your fingers. And I love the colour.
Now if they can only make an ‘anti chip’ formula.
Mirenesse Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadow
The light in this photo doesn’t do the palate justice. It is a super cute white and purple blend.
I was SO keen to use this but….
(I feel like I’m being a downer on all these products)
It just didn’t do it for me.
The white shadow didn’t even stick to my eyelids
The purple worked and I ended up looking like I had a black eye.
Of course that could just be my technique in applying eye shadow but I had a friend who is a beauty therapist also try to apply it and she was not impressed either I won’t be using the Mirenesse Shadow again.
Kosmea Replenishing Moisture Cream
You probably think you know what I’m going to say about this moisturiser…
I LOVE IT.
This is actually a product I will use again. And pay for
I find with a lot of moisturisers I have to apply at least two coats. With the Kosmea replenishing cream I only had to apply once and I was good to go all day!
Also this small tube has lasted about 3 weeks so far which is amazing.
I was super excited when I opened the March Lust Have It box but in the end found most products disappointing.
But that’s ok I have a new box coming soon!
