Lust Have It April 2014

I was beginning to think I wasn't going to receive this months LHI box* at all but it did finally make it's way to my desk on Wednesday, 7 days in to May... Lateness aside I'm glad to see that LHI have opted for a mix up in the packaging department, having a break from the usual cardboard box and instead introducing a clear makeup bag with pink trim. I'd love to see the packaging mixed up on a more regular basis as there's only so many of one thing you can make good use of.

On to what was actually inside the bag and this month I was actually fairly disappointed. There was only one product which excited me (more on that later) and the rest were all just rather bleh. Another Bioderma sample, Aveeno Moisturising Lotion and pack of Wot Not face wipes. Yes, they are the new oily sensitive skin variety but I'm just not a face wipe person so these will most likely be used to clean makeup packaging, exciting times. There seems to be a whole lot of repetition from month to month which definitely isn't a good thing.

As for the other two products, one I applied as soon as I opened it whilst the other isn't really for me. The Claytime Mineral Bronzer looks a little too shimmery for my liking, I'm more of a matte bronzer girl, but as for the Glamourflage Lip and Cheek Stain, that's where things got exciting. It's not a brand I've heard of before but the packaging instantly drew me in (slightly The Balm-esque) and I couldn't resist popping some on my cheeks straight away. The shade I got was Sultry Sophie (once again a little The Balm-like) and this is a full size product valued at $21.95. A full review of this will be up very very soon but so far, so good.

What did you think of this months LHI box? For me they managed to redeem themselves with that lip/cheek tint.


  1. I received a full size primer which I was impressed with but as for the moisturisers I was so disappointed! I feel as though they're just fillers.
