Yay! My PopSugar 2014 Fall Style Must Have Box is here! It originally wasn’t scheduled to arrive until next week sometime, but happily it arrived sooner than that.
This PopSugar Box was a separate purchase from the regular monthly PopSugar Must Have boxes. It went on sale back in July, was $100 and promised to ship by 8.31.14. If you aren’t familiar, PopSugar Must Have Box (which is probably my favorite box ever) is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100! And every once in a while (usually seasonally), they offer these Special Edition boxes.
PopSugar ships via FedEx Smart Post and took just over a week to arrive. I think the holiday may have delayed it a tad. I guess I understand why the regular monthly boxes ship via Smart Post, but I wish that the Special Edition ones used FedEx Ground.
I totally loved the polka dot tissue paper they used for this box. It doesn’t really remind me of fall, but it’s fun.
The 2014 PopSugar Must Have Fall Style Box was curated with Fashion Week in mind and included the following chic accessories and multifunctional accessories to help you take on the new season in style.
~Marchesa Voyage For Shopstyle Printed Scarf ($140): I like the material (although I did expect it to be a lot thicker) and pattern of this scarf, but I am not too sure about the colors. I mean I’ll wear it, but it wouldn’t have been my first choice. It’s not that I dislike blue and black, but it doesn’t scream fall to me either. I may be the only one, but I would have loved a deep orange or red.
~Make Silk Cream Lipstick (Radicchio) ($25): This is for sure a sister-in-law item. She gets all my lipsticks. It’s actually one product that I have none of in my stash since I give it all to her right away. She probably hasn’t had to buy a lipstick in years. This color is really nice and I think she’ll love it.
~Capsule Parfums Byway Eau de Parfume ($38): Okay, this was the item I was most curious about testing. It’s described as “a is a sweet fragrance inspired by one unforgettable lap dance”. Uhh, okay. It has hints of crystal spun sugar and vanilla among other, so I was kind of hoping it would smell similar to Pink Sugar which shares some of those notes. It doesn’t. It kind of reminds me of my Grandma (who didn’t smell like a lap dance). I don’t hate it, but it’s not going to be my signature scent either.
~Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser ($32): I love that we got a cleanser. There tends to be lots of serums and lotions and moisturizers and that sort of thing in subscription boxes, but cleansers? Not so much. This brand is totally new to me and while I normally wouldn’t spend this much on a cleanser, I will be happy to use it and see what I think.
~Joie Zorina Knit Hat ($98): Living in Michigan this hat will come in very handy. Too handy actually. It’s super soft and it’s something I would have bought on my own (I mean if it were less expensive of course). I would have totally preferred the Joie scarf or mittens, but I can always add those to my Christmas list.
~SugarPova Chic Gummy Candy ($5.99): Little gummy shoes, sunglasses and purses? So cute! It’s tennis champion Maria Sharapova’s line and they taste really good too.
All totaled I came up with a value of $338.99 for the 2014 PopSugar Must Have Fall Style Box. That’s well over the $100 cost of the box and while I am satisfied with it, I wasn’t wowed by it. I like the contents, but I didn’t love them. Still it will not be stopping me from ordering their next special edition box!
