February Lust Have It!


Today I finally received my February Lust Have It, and was not at all surprised by the contents - as I have already seen practically ever other beauty blogger's post about it! (No thanks to Australia Post's slow delivery in my area!)

I was extremely sad to see that they did not include the decorative box this month, because of "weight restrictions" which I believe is completely untrue. My box was very lightweight, but I did notice that the big full sized tanning product didn't fit in last month's box. This is why I think the box wasn't included, to be honest.

Lust Have It also mentioned across their social media platforms that some boxes were missing a product, also due to the shipping restrictions. Uh huh.



Summer Tan by Mancine in Dark

I'm always happy for a full sized product, but sadly for me, I won't use this, as I do not tan at all. I love my white skin, so this has been gifted to my sister, as she is a tanning nut! The packaging looks really cute, though, so if I was too tan, I'd probably give this a go! (Well, if I got a lighter shade maybe.)


Camouflage Colour Nail Polish in Brick

I've already read a lot of complaints about this colour, and yes, it's not for everyone, so I can see where they are coming from. I do love the packaging, though, and I'm sure I could use this colour for nail art sometime in the future? I'm slightly disappointed that I didn't get some of the other gorgeous colours - I've seen a beautiful metallic green that made my eyes envy with the same colour!


Styli-Style L3 Timeless Lipstick

This box isn't all bad! I'm always happy to get make-up, because if it's not something I like, I won't feel bad passing it on to somebody else! The colour is very rich and dark, and will be a perfect addition to my winter accessories! 


Lon Vitalite Crystal Moisturising Hand Mask

After reading more than a few reviews on this box, and seeing people being upset about this - yet happy they didn't receive the whitening mask, has made me realise how judgmental I have become of the products. The whitening hand mask doesn't make your hands white overnight, it's something that is going to take forever. Using it once won't change your hand colour, and I should know as I've reviewed it here. This is actually a lovely and welcome product to receive. 


Kerastase Paris Nectar Thermique - Missing Product


This saddened me, as this is certainly something I would try. No sachet means it would probably last me a few uses, so it would be a lovely addition.

--

All in all, I was a bit disappointed in this box. Sure, some of the things were lovely, but then I turn around and look at some of the other boxes (particularly this one from the lovely Kat) and can't help but feel jealous. The very presence of Lancome cannot even compare to receiving a full sized lipstick from a brand I've never heard, so I can't help but feel I've been cheated by the subscription boxes yet again.

What did you think of this box? Do you think the lack of the box & extra product was really due to shipping restrictions, or just due to the fact they couldn't fit the tanning product in the box? Do you think I have a case of wanting what I can't have, or do you think I have a right to be genuinely disenchanted by this box, especially in comparison to Kat's?

  1. Mine was pretty similiar to yours and I was disappointed too. The whole shipping restrictions thing seems a bit shady to me, wouldn't they work all that out when they're planning what to put in the boxes each month. That's my opinion anyways. Can only hope for better next month :)

    1. I know, it's a really big difference :(
      The only thing I can really do to chance my LHI preferences is to change my DOB so maybe I'll have to do that to get a better more adult box haha!

  3. I've heard so many not-so-good things about these beauty boxes so I'm kind of glad I never subscribed to any although I would have loved to. This sounds like such a disappointment! They could have at least picked a nail polish colour that everyone would like, haha.

    1. At first, it was super exciting to receive goodies every month in the post.. but the novelty has certainly worn off! Oh well :(

  4. I love the shade of nail polish you got! I wish I got that one in mine! Yeah the mascara is better than the lipstick, but last month I got a shitty lipgloss when everyone else got cool Lush products. I guess you win some and lose some. I will link your review in my post if thats cool with you :)

    1. Trade hahaha! I don't mind mine at all, but yours I'm lusting over!
      Last month I didn't get any Lush OR lipgloss! I feel like I'm losing every time :( boo lol!
      And that's okay :)

      I was pretty happy with the lippie until I saw the lancome!!!!

      And there was NO lush in my box last month! We are getting ripped, Jasmine!

    3. Aw you didn't get any Lush either?! Hmm what's happening!

  7. I received a dried out mascara that actually flaked in my hand as I pulled the brush out and a thick gloopy brown nail polish. I am less than impressed this month.

    I liked the boxes that received the lipstick better :o)

    1. I saw that on your blog! That's really unfortunate, I would definitely contact them and ask for a replacement or something, because that's just not fair.
      Hopefully next month will be a bit better!

  9. I really like the colour of the nail polish (maybe because I still don't own a nice brown?) but that's about it. So strange that they sent out fake tan towards the end of summer, and I'm not a big fan of the lipstick colour.

    1. Yeah that's true about the tan, it's a little bit useless at this time of year :|
      Hopefully next month will be a lot better... although I feel like I'm saying that every month :(

  10. Aww, that's really disappointing! Hope you receive interesting beauty products in the next box. I like the packaging of the nail polish too, but if only they offered a more wearable shade...
