Each box comes with a fold out card that details all the items included for that month.
Must-Have Makeup Brush Set – Value $15?
People VIP uses a lot of non-branded Made In China items, so I’m guessing on the value of this makeup set.
It’s a cute set for travel, and I’m sure I’ll use it a lot!
The Giving Keys Necklace in Shine – Value $35
FabFitFun VIP featured a Giving Keys necklace in a previous box, and I like the concept a lot – you wear the necklace, and at some point you give it to someone else who needs the message on the key. This key is customized with the message “Shine,” just for People VIP subscribers.
Elizabeth Mott It’s So Big Volumizing Mascara – Value $20
I’ve sampled Elizabeth Mott before thanks to Ipsy, so I’m excited to try out this mascara!
Wear-It-With-Everything Circle Scarf – Value $25?
This scarf is another non-branded item, but I don’t care – I love it! I know I’ll be wearing it all the time as soon as fall starts!
Touch-Screen Gloves – Value $10?
These are non-branded as well. I know I’ll use them though, so it’s a good addition to the box for me. (I can never have enough gloves – I put a pair in every coat pocket, in the glove-compartment of my car, etc. – I never want to be without a pair in the winter!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $100 – I’ll use everything in the box, so I’m very happy with the value! If I could change anything about this box though I wish they would use more branded items. It almost seems weird getting generic items from People – you would never see these items in their magazine or in Style Watch! (I want more of the brands celebrities love!)
