January 2012 Luxe Box

It finally arrived! (I always say that.) I’m so glad that they decided to expedite the luxe boxes so that everyone receives them roughly at the same time.

The brown box that carries the luxe box looked pretty big from the outside, and when I opened it, to my surprise there were TWO boxes! One was the regular black luxe box and the other was a white complementary limited edition luxe box titled “Bath and Body.”

When I opened the black luxe box, I saw everything and realized that one of the products was a product that I had previously received in my December luxe box. Whomp whomp! The repeat product turned out to be the Yves Rocher Rouge Dragee Lipstick (Full Size) in the exact same colour. Don’t get me wrong, the colour is pretty, but I don’t need a second one! I haven’t even used the first one yet.

I also received the Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex. I guess I could start being concerned about wrinkles and fine lines…

Luxe Box has created a new program called “MyScent” to allow the individual to try out a large selection of fragrances and I have been selected to participate. In my bag, I received PradaCandy,” PradaInfusion d’Iris,” Nina RicciL’Air du Temps,” Nina RicciNina,” Paco RabanneBlack XS for Her,” and Paco RabinneLady Million.” This fragrance bag is kind of a disappointment for me. I’m not big on wearing perfumes, but if I were, I would be glad to have gotten all these samples. I may keep a couple, but I will probably give the rest away. I already have other full size perfumes that I need to use up!

In my box, I received a NYX Liquid Eye Liner (Full Size) in Extreme Black. And judging from the reviews on makeup alley, I’m kind of skeptical about this product. Currently, I have been using the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner and I’m running out. Not saying the NYX liquid liner will be a replacement, but I will definitely give the it a try and see what I think of it.
UPDATE: I tried the NYX liquid liner and it is not good. At all. It’s very streaky and sheer. Also, the brush/wand to apply the liner is so flimsy! Would not recommend.

As a bonus this month, I received a bag of Seattle’s Best Coffee Level 3. I do drink coffee, but only when I need it the most. I don’t drink coffee everyday, but this will be a great addition.

The white Luxe Box contained a Schick Hydro Silk Razor and Fekkai Advanced Brilliant Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner samples. Can’t go wrong with a razor! And I’m always glad to try out different hair shampoo/conditioner brands.

Last but not least, also included is a coupon for Seattle’s Best Coffee and an offer to receive Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum Bonus Points if you were to purchase any Fekkai hair product.

Though this month was quite packed, I am a little disappointed. I’m not a fan of the perfume samples, and I’m not too happy that I received a repeat product. But I guess the extras and the bonuses are a fair trade. I really hope next month’s will be better!

  1. I received exactly the same box and was a little disappointed too. My repeat product was Olay, although I love this cream, I would’ve love to try new stuff. The lipstick was an horrible pinkish fluo color…. Hoping my february box will be better!
