March LuxeBox

This month's LuxeBox by Loosebutton is their Anniversary box!  How exciting! I hope that it's chock full of goodies!  

I have to admit that Luxebox and I did not start off on the right foot.  I saw that everyone had started receiving their boxes and I hadn't even received a tracking number.  Now, I live in the Prairies and I believe that starting last month, they said that they wanted to start far west and far east with the shipping and start working inwards.  So, it stands to reason that I probably should have gotten mine before those in TO got theirs.  Not so much.

CARGO - Glitter Top Coat liner (Full size - $18 - 0.095 floz)
Sample Size : Full size.  I was lucky enough to be able to sign up for a "First in Line" product.  I choose the Cargo Glitter Top Coat liner, just because I have a lot of shadows and I believe that the other product was a hair product?  I can't quite remember.  This is the ultimate day to night transformer.  With one sweep of the brush, go from work to party.  The clear liner is infused with coloured iridescent glitter which can be worn alone or on top of any waterproof eyeliner or eye shadow.  I swatched it but it was extremely hard to pick up the glitter on camera. I must admit, glitter really isn't my thing anymore, but this is really pretty.  The glitter is quite fine and just catches the light.

J.R Watkins - Hand and Body Lotion (Full size - $10 - 325 ml)
Sample Size : 29 ml ($0.89).  The scent is lavender, which i absolutely LOVE. My favourite hand lotion is the Crabtree and Evelyn Hand Therapy in Lavender.  This rich formula provide deep, long lasting moisture that leaves your skin naturally smooth, soft and nourished.  Their formula is organic and contains more than 10 natural oils and extracts to protect and pamper.  I find that the lotion is a little greasy.  I have very dry skin, so usually lotions get absorbed quite quickly and I normally have to keep reapplying until that dry feeling goes away.  The lavender smell is quite the natural lavender fresh cut lavender.  Also included was a $1.00 off any J.R. Watkins Hand and Body Lotion coupon at Shopper's Drug Mart.

LooseButton - MyScent
Once again, a bunch of little perfume samples that are about the size of the ones that you would get from the perfume counters.  One thing that I do have to say is that at least these scents are a little "newer".  I received three in my box this month : CK one Shock for Her, Vera Wang Lovestruck, and Marc Jacobs Oh, Lola!  As much as I think that this is a great way to experience perfumes without having purchase the real full size deal, I think that it's a bit of a "filler" because I could easily get these from the counters at my local Bay for example.

Cargo - Eye Shadow Single (Full Size - $16 - ?)
 Sample Size: Full Size, I think ($16). Good thing I chose the liner as my first in line product because I ended up being lucky enough to receive the Cargo Eye shadow also!  On my description card, it says that this is a single, but I think that it's a duo because there are two colours and it's the same size as the one that I received in my March Top Box.  The pink shade is quite similar to the one that I received in my March Top Box, perhaps a little darker.  I wouldn't use it as a highlighter like I could with the Top Box one.  The brown shade is a light to medium brown shade. I'd think that it's either a creasing or outer eye shader type of shadow. Both have gold shimmer, which makes it quite pretty.

Last but not least, Loosebutton, in celebration of their anniversary included a little card that you can plant! How cute!  I'm not really a green thumb kind of person, so I think that I'm going to give this away to my mom who will raise those little seeds in beautiful flowers.

Overall, I really like this month's box.  I really do, perfume samples and all.

Rating: 4 out of 5 (yes!  I know!!)
Total Cost of this month's box : $34.89.


  1. I am glad you were happy with your box! It has had mixed reviews from people, but it seems like many people got variations on the boxes.

    1. Thanks! I think that it may have something to do with the two full sizes and no shampoo samples for colour treated hair!! ;P
