This month's Bellabox is going to be great, and all for a number of reasons - it's value for money (meaning you're not just going to get a bunch of teeny samples in packets), it's got some big brand names, and it's got a good mix of items! I was at the Bellabox blogger's event earlier last week, and I got a sneek peek at the upcoming box.
I know it looks a little puny like this, but that's because the box given to us at the event didn't have the usual packaging material (makes sense, right, since it wasn't being mailed over).
First up, I got a full-sized Savoir Faire Lipstick in Miss You, along with a small OPI mini (I'm not sure what colour this is - light sheer-looking pink with no shimmer whatsoever - anyone want to suggest a name?). I love this. I love makeup and nail polish, so I'm happy.
But what really impressed me was the addition of the Savoir Faire Lipstick. These things are S$64 a pop, so I guess if you get a colour you like, this box will be more than worth it for you! Miss You, the colour the bloggers got, is a light peachy pink with shimmer. I imagine it would be a great nude lip look on fair-to-medium skins. And man, look at the packaging! Sleek and very luxe-feeling.
Also, haircare. I also got an Aveda sample of some of their new ranges, the Invati, which is meant to help thinning hair. This isn't a large-sized sample - it's probably good for one or two uses. Not sure how helpful that is because I imagine you'd need to try shampoo/haircare for at least a week or two to determine how effective it is, right? So it's the least favourite of my samples, but I guess I can't complain, after the Savoir Faire lipstick.
Lastly, skincare. I got some Caudalie skincare samples, also from their latest Vinosource range. I got a Caudalie Vinosource serum and hydrating cream. I also got Lemongrass House Liquid Hand Soap. Lemongrass House has very aromatic products, so if you're into nice-smelling stuff (e.g. if you're a Lush fan), you should check out their stuff.
All in all, this box is really mostly samples, offset by the inclusion of the seriously awesome Savoir Faire lipstick. My verdict? If you want the lipstick, this is going to be a stellar buy. Else, it might not be your cup of tea (but seriously, getting a $64 lipstick for $20? Who wouldn't want that?).
