Net A Porter Luxury Collaboration Glossybox

Net a Porter Glossybox

The limited edition Net-a-Porter Glossybox went on sale on Monday and I placed my order on my cellphone immediately during lunch.  I was so pleased to see that I already received this today.  The limited edition box is $40 plus the NY sales tax which brought this box just shy of $44.  I know $40 is a bit steep but the limited edition Glossyboxes are always pretty juicy and you know exactly what you are getting since they show you images of the contents of the box.   I have always wanted to try Kevyn Aucoin’s makeup line and his eye shadow was one of the items of the box and since the line is usually so pricey, this box was definitely a good buy for me.

 

The contents of this limited edition box are:

  • Natura Bisse Diamond White Brightening Sunscreen .3 oz $29.10 value ($97 for 1 oz)
  • Kevyn Aucion The Eye Shadow Duo #206 4.8g $42
  • Ellis Faas Mascara $34
  • Klorane Dry Shampoo 50 ml $7.50
  • RGB Cuticle Oil .4 oz $20
  • Philip B Gravity Defying Gel .5 oz $1.58 value ($19 for 6 oz)
  • Avene Thermal Water Spray 50 ml $9
  • Joya Ames Souer Roll on Perfume 1.5ml $4.2 value ($28 for 10ml)

The First Ever Laura Mercier Sample Sale

Last week was the first ever Laura Mercier sample sale.  The sale took place at Clothingline and went on for only 3 days.  Prices were good, almost all the products there were at least 50% off however the product selection was minimal.  They had 3 lip glaces, 5 lipsticks, a handful of liners and caviar sticks.  Polishes were available as well, although the color selection was small and shades were not too interesting.  I picked up a couple of items and prices for the items were low, between $8 to $12 each.

I picked up Laura Mercier’s creme smooth lipstick in Tulip, lip glace in Desert Rose, caviar eye color sticks in Jungle and Grey Pearl.  I also picked up just one nail polish in Bare Mocha.  It was a good haul but I hope they have more product selections at the next sale.

Julep Ultimate Mystery ZigZag Box

I purchased Juleps Ultimate Zigzag box almost 2 weeks ago and received it today.  I had purchased the Ultimate set, which was $39.99 and the mystery add on for $9.99.  The mystery add on items that I received were polishes in Zora and Karen, and lip scrub.  The contents of my ultimate box contained chevron nail stickers and polishes in Amy, Sienna, and Lois.  I also received their Beach Tonic body oil, Sea salt texture spray, double step foot treatment, cuticle oil.  Also I was pretty excited to receive the Freedom Polymer top coat.  This top coat is suppose to perform like a gel so this item had piqued my interest for a while now.  I was pretty pleased with the contents of my box as I have been interested in the top coat for a while and liked all the polish colors I received.  And oh yea, SEA SALT SPRAY! One of my favorite hair products ever.

Prestiche 60% off!

This is pretty much proof that Prestiche products are overpriced.  They are offering a whooping 60% discount on their products.  I’ve never heard of such a steep discount for health and beauty products!!  For anyone looking to try their products, promo code GLOSSY60 will give you 60% off your order.  Expires August 31, 2013 or whenever they decide to disable it.  I think I will try some of their mineral salts and maybe some butter brulees or creme de la creme…  Their stuff is way too expensive at original price but with the 60% off its not too much more than other brands that I usually use. 

Julep deal

On my nails: Butter London Black Knight
In my cup: Starbucks dark roast with hazelnut creamer

I placed an order with Julep last week and had received my order over the weekend. Talk about quick shipping.  I still haven’t received either of my two Zoya orders and it has been three weeks already. 
Anyways I will swatch the Julep polishes when I get a chance but in the meanwhile I want to share this deal that was included in my package.  If you subscribe to their Maven program, you can get two additional polishes.
