July Lust Have It!


So I finally received my July Lust Have It today! I was a bit peeved as usually this package is safe dropped by my post-man if I don't answer the door, however since making a complaint against him, he didn't safe drop! Not sure if it was a coincidence, or if he's out to make my life miserable, but either way, at least I finally got it!

I always seem to be in the last lot of people receiving their bags, which is extremely annoying for me as I absolutely love surprises and I don't want to have to boycott other people's blogs!

That aside, it's orange! I adore the colour. The Lust Have It team have described this as tangerine, but it's almost bordering neon! I'm always looking forward to getting Lust Have It just to see what colour is coming next!


This month's theme is "Fun and Flirty" although judging by what we got, I wouldn't exactly say that. The things included were more "Winter Essentials" maybe? Either way, let's have a look at what I got...


All the goodies together...

I saw there were two separate bags, and to be perfectly honest, I had my eye on this one, so I was very pleased that I got it! I just find that I'll get much more use out of this bag!



Pure Fiji Hydrating Body Lotion in Orange Blossom



I'm always happy to get Pure Fiji products, however I don't know how much use this will get as my house is overloaded with hand and body creams at the moment! I even have a few at work that I need to use! Who knows though, I may try it and fall in love! It does smell divine!





Eau Thermale Avene Gentle Purifying Scrub



This is so tiny! I'm sure I'll only get the one use out of it, but that's okay - it's called a sample box for a reason! I'll give it a go and if I like it, I'll buy the full product! It'll be great for overnight travels!




Eau Thermale Avene Gentle Eye Make-up Remover

This looks very promising! It's actually a pretty great size for make-up remover so it'll be great to have in my overnight bag! I'm used to a really liquid-like remover whereas this one is very gel-like, so I'll be pleased to try this out!

Matrix Biolage Soothing Shampoo

I already use another Matrix Biolage shampoo & conditioner combination and have been looking in every salon for these small sizes for travelling! Now I have one! I'm so excited!


Matrix Biolage Smoothing Conditioner



As I said above I already use this brand so I'm very pleased! I've heard most people wonder why there is less conditioner than shampoo, but for me it works fine as I use only the tiniest amount of conditioner!





Tigi Bed Head Shine Junkie Lipgloss in Bronze



Ahh the dreaded lipgloss! I've heard so many complaints about this lipgloss, and in all honesty I could not wait to see what all the fuss was about! To be fair yes, it looks pretty disgusting in the bottle! But looks are deceiving! I decided to take a couple of snaps on what the lipgloss actually looks like, for those of you who haven't tried it yet, to let you know it's not all bad!

The description also states it has a peppermint scent, which some people have said they can't smell. I smelt it, I actually found it rather strong, so girls if you aren't smelling it and the product is clumpy and gross (some complaints I've heard) you may be dealing with an off lipstick!

Anyway, on to the pictures...


Artificial Light



Natural Light



So as you can see, not all bad! It actually goes rather well with my skin tone, I feel, so I'm pretty happy to get this! I really liked the consistency of the gloss and it wasn't sticky at all - plus most of it even remained after I ate!

So overall, what did I think of this month's Lust Have It? I'm actually thrilled! My boyfriend and I are going away for two nights for his birthday, so some of this stuff will really come in handy! (I'm looking at you, Matrix Biolage!)
For a sample box, I think they're doing a fine job! (Aside from not sending them all out at once - PLEASE Lust Have It I want to be one of the first, not the last! I swear it's affecting my blog stats haha!)

So what did you all think of this month's Lust Have It? Love it or hate it?

  5. The lip gloss looks lovely on you, it's somewhat neutral toned and looks quite moisturising :) I'd be curious about the Avene products, I've only tried their facial mist but would like to sample their other skin care.
