Eva Scrivo Quarterly Subscription Box Review – #EVA01
Eva Scrivo is one of the newest Quarterly curators, and since she’s a makeup and hairstyling pro, I had to sign up for this box!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Eva Scrivo Quarterly Box
The Cost: $100
The Products: Beauty items, tools and techniques from Eva!
Ships to: US and Worldwide (additional shipping costs for Canada and International orders).
Delivered via: USPS
Good to Know: Quarterly accepts returns if you aren’t happy with a box!
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator detailing all the items included and why they were selected. Eva’s theme for the first box is “Backstage Beauty” in honor of New York Fashion Week.
Eva included full page images to show the inspiration behind her selections. One of the themes she’s highlighting are metallics:
Eva Scrivo Leather Metallic Headband – Value $65?
I couldn’t find this exact headband on her site, so I’m estimating the value based on similar styles. This headband is gorgeous and the leather is great quality – my only issue is that it’s a little tight on my head. I received a size Small/Medium in the box, and I definitely would have been happier with a Medium/Large. (I’m guessing this will fit most subscribers though).
Armour Lip Gloss in “Stardust” – Value $21
Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer in Give Me Gold – Value $8.50
At first glance I didn’t think this lipgloss would be for me since it seems very sparkly in the tube. I gave it a try though since it is one of Eva’s favorite lip glosses, and I’m glad I did. The sparkle is actually a very fine shimmer, and one swipe gives me plenty of shine and shimmer. It is just slightly sticky – but nothing that bothers me.
And this shimmery gold polish is gorgeous – and the brand is new to me!
Eva also included details on how to properly blow-dry hair (I need this advice) and step-by-step tutorials for creating a sexy pony tail look.
Kerastase V.I.P. Volume in Powder – Value $37
Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum – Value $38
I normally don’t splurge on pricey hair styling products, so these are a treat for me! The V.I.P. Spray powder goes on clear so you don’t have to worry about any white residue in your hair. I think I need a few more tries to figure out the perfect application for my hair, but I can definitely see a boost in volume. And this serum is so lightweight! I tried it out on dry hair, but I’m thinking it will be even better on damp hair.
C5C-R Teasing Brush by Creative Professional – Value $17.48
Eva included this brush to help with teasing hair and creating more volume. (She also mentions that back-brushing is less damaging to hair than back-teasing)
And each Eva Scrivo box will also include one of her favorite recipes “to help heal your body, strengthen your immune system, and promote glowing skin and hair, all of which are by-products of proper nutrition.”
This month’s recipe is an Autumn Salad.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $187. It cost $100, so that’s a pretty good value. More importantly, I think this box is great at curation – and I love that Eva included tutorial’s and runway inspiration photos to accompany her items. What do you think of #EVA01?
FYI – her next box is shipping in November! The theme is Radiance.
