Violet Box October 2014

Another month and another Violet Box. I received this yesterday so it’s a regular thing for these boxes to arrive towards the last week of the month. Still something that annoys me a little.

Anyway, moving on. October’s Violet Box seemed to focus on lips as there were 3 full size lip products included.

Violet Box October 2014 – this is what was included:

WOTNOT Facial Wipes for Oily/Sensitive Skin $1.95/5 pack ($7.95/25 pack)
Facial wipes are always welcome! They’re so handy to have around when I’m feeling lazy or after a big night out.

PHR Professional Haircare Recovery Leave-In Moisturiser ~$4.79/15ml ($39.95/125ml)
This hair moisturiser also works as a heat protector for your hair as well as an intense treatment for dry and dull hair.

Eslor Introductory Collection Envelopes
4 sample satchets of various skincare products from Eslor –

Eslor Soothing Refiner and Cleanser $3.08/5ml ($39.95/60ml)
Botanical Peeling Gel $4.16/5ml ($49.95/60ml)
Chlorophyll Lifting Mask $5/5ml ($49.95/50ml)
Firming Collagen Day Cream $8.5/5ml ($85/50ml)
Out of the above, I’m most interested in the Botanical Peeling Gel and the Chlorphyll Lifting Mask. The cleanser and day cream promises nothing life changing or radical.

Designer Brands Lip Pencil $4.99
I received this in Fuchsia Rose which is a pink-red liner. I can’t wait to use it with a lot of my bright pink and pink-red lipsticks and see how the colour matches.

Haughty Cosmetics – Pefect Finish Lipgloss $23
How gorgeous is the packaging? I love it and will definitely be having this out on display. I got this in the shade Give which is a ruby red shade with red microshimmer. It smells like caramel toffee and has a flat doe-foot applicator for precise application.

I also noticed on the box that 50% of the proceedings from lipglosses go to preventing domestic violence. Great initiative!

Designer Brands Eternal Colour Lipstick $9.99
Despite its name, Rose Brown, there is only a slight hint of brown. The shade is a more natural rose colour, a very MLBB shade. I haven’t worn this yet but when swatching, it glides on beautifully – no tugging or pulling at all.

I am not sure if the shades of the lip products were planned but it made for a nice cohesive theme of a reddish lip shade. Would’ve made for a great Valentine’s Day box.

As a lip product addict, I love this month’s box. The only inclusion I didn’t really like are the Eslor skincare samples. Everything else – love!
