Review: Violet Box March 2014

This month’s Violet Box didn’t arrive until towards the end of March which is probably the latest I’ve ever received a Violet Box.

Let’s get straight into it –

Love Those Lashes Silk Strip Lashes in The Jade $14.95
I have only started getting into false lashes and these will make a welcome addition to my collection. They look great to wear for a night out. I have not had the chance to try these yet so cannot comment on them much. It does come with its own adhesive so I will see whether the adhesive glue works the same or better than the Ardell ones. My case was actually broken when the Violet Box arrived which is a shame.

Starlooks Gem Pencil in Amethyst $19.50
Usually comes in 6 different shades, the options for this month’s Violet Box was between Topaz or Amethyst. Amethyst is a metallic lilac shade. It glides on very easy and looks great. I cannot comment on wear time etc because I haven’t had the chance to wear it out either…

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Gogo Girl $4.95
I have already received this shade in September’s Violet Box..it makes for a nice red and goes on easy.

Acorelle Skincare Night Cream ~$1.98/2ml ($49.50/50ml)
In January’s Violet Box, subscribers received a sample of Acorelle’s fragrances and this month, it’s a selection from their skincare range. I received the night cream which has a very strong herbal scent.

Mireness Velvet Lip Moisture Shine in 47 Sweet Tart ~$13.32/1.5g ($39.95/4.5g)
This is a mini version of what Mirenesse claims is an “award winning” lip product. This lip gloss is a lip plumper and the shade I received is slightly coral/peachy shade with gold microshimmer and smells like chocolate. The applicator is a a flattened wand and swatched really smoothly and was very pigmented.

This month’s box was slightly underwhelming. The only item that really piqued my interest were the lashes. Sure, the value of the items far exceeded the value of the monthly subscription fee but for some reason, I just didn’t feel ‘wow’-d!
