Hey hey hey!
I received my Summer 2015 Luxe Box 2-3 weeks ago and here it finally is! Let’s take a look at what I received…
I was able to do an unboxing video, YAY! 😀
And now for a closer look at the products.
Did I receive any items that were on my wishlist? Let’s take a look… (wishlist items are marked with *)
- bareMinerals | Lash Domination Mascara (1.5mL / $2.7) *
- Full size: 10mL / $18
A do-it-all mascara for larger-than-life lashes. This volumizing, lengthening, thickening, separating, and long-wearing mascara is designed to curve around lashes and coat from all angles with intense black colour.
My thoughts: I love trying new mascaras so I’m excited to try this one. I just hope I won’t get raccoon eyes (like I usually do).
- Batiste | Original Dry Shampoo (50mL / $4.99)
- Full size!
Batiste Dry Shampoo is your secret weapon for fresh looking and feeling hair anytime, anyhwhere.
My thoughts: Ugh, this is the item I hoped I would NOT receive. I’m tired of getting dry shampoos – I don’t use them.
- Elizabeth Arden | PREVAGE Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum (3mL / $31)
- Full size: 15mL / $155 (WHAT?!?)
Help tighten, firm and smooth the appearance of visible aging signs around your eyes with Elizabeth Arden’s PREVAGE Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Eye Serum. Pair this with PREVAGE Anti-aging + Intensive Repair Daily Serum for face to improve texture and tone and achieve younger-looking skin.
My thoughts: Interested in trying this product to see if it’ll help with the lines around my eyes.
- essie | nail polish in “power clutch” (13.5mL / $9.99)
- Full size!
After applying an essie base coat, apply 2-3 thin coats of colour, waiting 2 min. between each coat. Finish with ‘good to go’ topcoat.
My thoughts: I wasn’t sure about this colour at first, but after looking at swatches online I’m excited to try it.
- Fruits & Passion | Aloe Face Mask (1 mask / $2.50)
- Full size!
This refreshing Face Mask contains an essence specially formulated to improve the appearance of your skin. Your skin is moisturized, softened and more luminous.
My thoughts: I LOVE sheet face masks so I’m happy about this product.
- La Roche-Posay | Anthelios Mineral Tinted Ultra-Fluid Lotion SPF 50 (3mL / $2)
- Full size: 50mL / $33.50
Advanced 100% Mineral sunscreen + antioxidants protection in revolutionary ultra-light texture, slightly tinted for a healthy glow.
My thoughts: I’ve never tried a tinted product before so I’m curious to see how this will do. It could be great on days where I’m hanging by a pool and not wear any makeup… we’ll see!
- Medusa’s Makeup | Eyeshadow in “xtinct” (2g / $8)
- Full size!
Highly pigmented mineral pressed powder with micro sparkles. For best results, apply “Stick It” primer then apply with a brush.
My thoughts: This colour is beautiful! It is a bit more sheer than I expected (as seen in my video), but I will definitely use a primer to make it pop!
I only got one item from my wishlish, but I was hoping to get some nail polish and eyeshadow – I just didn’t get the items/colours that were in the limited editions – so technically they still kind of were on my wishlist, right? 🙂
Did you see the price of that Elizabeth Arden eye serum?!? I’m curious to try that one to see if I’ll notice anything.
With that said, the value of my box this season is $61. I find that very good for something I paid $26 + tx for.
The Loose Button Luxe Box is a seasonal box (every 3 months) that contains 7-8 trial-size products. It costs $26 + tx per box and you can upgrade to special edition boxes for an extra price. If you go for the regular box you don’t know what you’ll received until you get you box, but if you upgrade you know exactly what you will get as they show you what the upgraded boxes contain.

Have you tried any of these products?
