July Lust Have It!

I am just about to hop on a plane to head over to New Zealand for a couple of weeks and before I left I thought I would show you all what I received in this months Lust Have It! box.

The first thing I noticed when I saw the box overflowing from my letter box was that it was bigger than usual. This excited me as it meant changes and hopefully a lot of samples!

Once I opened it the change was clear, they had done away with the cute little makeup bags and instead cased it in a white box with a black ribbon around it. I was kinda glad that there wasn't another makeup bag as I have got so many already but I was a bit disappointed that the box was pretty flimsy and probably can't be used for storage purposes like I used to do with the old GlossyBox boxes. 

It's not that big a deal as I guess it saves them a bit of money and maybe this will reflect better samples, I hope so!

So here is what was inside;

1. tanGo Tanning Glove (Full size - $29.95)

This is supposed to be a glove that helps to remove your fake tan and also can be used to remove makeup with just water. Handy as I have just recently started getting into fake tanning, although I am not sure how well it will work. 

2. Tigi Rockaholic - Rock Out Shine Blaster (100mL $27.95 - full size) 

This was one of the first things I noticed as it smells incredible, mine had leaked a little bit into the box but luckily it didn't get on the other products. This is supposed to seal your hair cuticles to speed up drying time as well as adding shine and temporarily masking split ends. I put a little bit in my hair and it definitely makes it shiny, not sure about the claims it masks split ends though - might have to experiment with this a bit more.

3. ModelCo Eyeliner - Black (Full size - $26.00)

I love trying out new eyeliners and was glad this was in black as I know it will get used. It's not the blackest eyeliner out there but it looks like it would be great for smudging as it is quite soft. I also love that it has a sharpener on the lid!

4. Marc Jacobs DOT Fragrance (100mL $160.00 - 1.2mL sample)

I was really excited to see this as I love trying out new perfumes and I have seen this one advertised a lot recently. It has a floral/berry scent to it which I do really like. 

5. Appelles Skin Detox Shower Gel (100mL $12.95 - 30mL sample)

I'd never heard of this brand before so am eager to test these samples out. This one has an amazing berry scent to it but doesn't smell super strong.

6. Appelles Body Booster Skin Lotion (100mL $12.95 - 30mL sample)

This is a very lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly into the skin and has the same scent as the shower gel. I can see this in my handbag used as a hand cream for sure.

7. Appelles Body Bar Vegetable Soap (40g $4.95 - full size)

This smells really good and seems to have a stronger scent than the other two samples. Don't know what makes it a vegetable doesn't smell like vegetables haha

Total Value of this months box = $29.95 + $27.95 + $26.00 + $1.92 + $3.88 + $3.88 + $4.95 = $98.53!

I am very impressed with this month's box, especially considering there are 4 full size products in here and a whopping 7 samples!

Did you get anything different? What are your thoughts? Are you sad there is no more mini makeup bags?
