Review: Violet Box October 2013

When I first opened Violet Box’s October box, I wasn’t sure but then as I went along my merry way photographing, playing and reading about the products, it won me over.

Bodyography Oxyplex Loose Complexion Powder in Almond $60
Subscribers received 1 of 3 variations: loose powder, pressed powder or finishing powder. The shade almond actually looks like it’s a decent match to my skintone. I normally don’t use powders for my face but I’ll try this out and see how I go.

Be a Bombshell eyeshadow in Halo $18
A new brand! I haven’t heard anything about this brand before. I received the shade Halo which is a white shimmery shade, good for highlighting the brow bone and inner corner. The packaging is very similar to MAC eyeshadows. The powder seems a bit fragile though mine is all cracked!

Savoir Faire lipgloss in Bon-Bon $25
I really dig the packaging! From what I’ve seen, everyone received different shades. I received Bon-Bon, a slightly purple-pink shade that smells like caramel toffee..yum!

Apivita Face Mask $7.90
You can never have enough face masks IMO. I received the carrot (regeneration) variation but others may have received the orange (radiance) or red wine (lifting).

John Plunkett Super Wrinkle Cream ~$11.60 ($28.95/50ml)
An anti-aging cream aimed at reducing fine lines and wrinkles and leave skin looking plump. Not sure if I’ll use this or add it to my forever growing anti-aging products stash.

Out of the five products sent, four of them are full retail size! And useful products that will get some use and not just sit around.

Month after month, Violet Box has continued to keep me interested and impress me with the content of each box. For $22.95/month, the value of each box far exceeds the subscription fee which makes it worthwhile.
