LUST HAVE IT | Women's Beauty Box April '16 - Unboxing + Thoughts - CassandraMyee

It's that time again for a beauty box unboxing! The Lust Have It Women's Beauty Box* for April has arrived and it is packed with some interesting products. If you haven't heard of Lust Have It, it is a monthly subscription service for those based in Australia and New Zealand where you receive at least 5 full size or sample products delivered to you. The March one was a bit hit and miss for me (see it here), but this one looks promising!

Inside the pink pouch is four full sized products and two deluxe sample sizes. Many of these brands have featured in Lust Have It boxes previously.

Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush, Highlighter + Eyeshadow | RRP $25.00
A couple month ago, I received a Matte Lip Crayon from this brand and really enjoy it, so I was looking forward to seeing what this product was all about. It claims to be three in one but personally I find this too pigmented and shimmery for a brush (you would need a VERY light hand), but as an eyeshadow this will be gorgeous! You could use it as a highlighter too, but the pigment is again very intense and the colour wouldn't suit my skin tone, perhaps someone with a darker complexion, though. The shade is almost a M.A.C All That Glitters, with a rose gold metallic hue to it and on swatching it it has an almost creamy feel to it. I can't wait to use it. 

Marsk Certified Organic Eyeliner in Snowflake | RRP $28.95
Marsk is another brand that has popped up in previous bags, and I'm pretty sure the last product I got was a black eyeliner from them. I like this white shade as it has a slight iridescence to it and feels creamy to apply.

Personail Nail Polish Strips | RRP $18.00
As a nail polish fiend, I am always curious about trying nail polish strips. Ones I have used in the past have left me underwhelmed so I hope these might impress me. I love the set I got, the silver glitter looks amazing and the half moon feature will look unique too. I might have to do a separate post on these and give you all the low down on how I found applying them and the wear time.

Marsk Certified Organic Brow Liner in Audrey | RRP $28.95
Here we have another Marsk Liner, this time for brows. I am a big brow pencil fan as I find them easy to use and you can get a bit more control with them. On first impressions it seems to be quite a soft pencil with a lot of pigmentation - I prefer something harder that you can build up in the brows but I will still see how this goes.

Soak Hair Shine Shampoo + Hair Revive Conditioner | Full Size RRP $24.95 (500ml)
These two products actually came in the May box from last year and I found them really handy to travel with and as shampoo and conditioner go they worked well but was nothing too memorable. Still, I am glad to have these 25ml bottles as they definitely come in handy!

Overall, the value of the April '16 box was around AUD $103 - a huge amount considering the $19.95 + $2.95 shipping to New Zealand. If you want to give this subscription service a go and live in NZ or Australia you can use the code CASSMYEE1 for $5 off your first box!

What do you think of the contents of the April box? Do you get Lust Have It?
