Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
Hudson + Bleecker Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio – Value $45
I couldn’t find this exact item on the Hudson + Bleecker site, so I’m not sure if that means it is an exclusive for POPSUGAR subscribers.
The clear zipper pouch is TSA friendly, and inside are two drawstring bags for intimates and shoes:
I love the pattern of this fabric (100% Polyester, hand wash, hang to dry). And the shoe and intimates tags are helpful too:
One of the themes this month was travel, and I think this is a perfect and useful set. (I will try throwing them in washing machine, though!)
Kris Nations XO Stud Earrings – Value $35
These studs are made in the USA with recycled brass and plated with 14K gold. They are very tiny studs – perfect for me and my love of delicate gold jewelry!
Here they are with a nickel to give a better sense of scale:
Also, now I can’t stop singing this song in my head!
This was the spoiler item POPSUGAR released for the September box, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! (I still love the Too Faced palette they sent in 2014!)
One thing that you may notice in this photo is that the tweezers and brushes are missing. Here is what the complete set should look like:
I’m guessing these missing pieces are a fluke (and since POPSUGAR sent me this box – no complaints here). I also have eyebrow brush tools, so I’m still able to use everything.
I really love this kit. The brunette shade is a perfect match for me, and the setting wax is so easy to use – I prefer it over brow gel. I’ve been loving my Bodyography eyebrow trio from Boxycharm, but I think this is my new favorite. Having the highlighter in the kit is great too – sometimes I forget the step of applying highlighter under the brows!
Here are swatches of the brow colors and highlighter:
The kit also comes with eyebrow stencils:
And a step-by-step tutorial:
Briogeo is a great ingredient conscious hair care line (only second to Alterna in my mind!). This leave-in conditioner is free of silicones, artificial colors, phthalates, mineral oils, synthetic fragrances and parabens. It’s designed to be sprayed on damp hair, but I wanted to test it out immediately, so I gave it a dry hair test. I love the scent and I found the formula to be very lightweight. (I did shake it well before spraying per the directions). It also made my hair softer immediately.
I may be swapping/buying more of this spray when I run out!
(Also, one minor weird thing to mention – I can’t figure out why this spray has two caps! There is another one inside after you take off the main cap.)
NCLA So Rich Vitamin-E Enriched Cuticle Oil – Value $18
I don’t know if you can tell in the picture with my hand holding the eyebrow palette, but I needed cuticle oil! This one works well, and it has a fruity scent. Not the most exciting item, but a useful one, and the bottle looks good too!
Nourish Snacks Almonds to Cherries – Value $2
These are gluten-free and Non-GMO. I thought it was a good mix, and even though the cherries are described as tart on the package, they are sweetened a little, so it is a still satisfied my sweet tooth!
This box also included 20% off coupon codes for Too Faced and Kris Nations. (Both expire 10/31). The Too Faced coupon looks to be a unique coupon code, and the Kris Nations code is a general use code.
This box also came with a card to share POPSUGAR with your friends:
Each card has a unique $10 off coupon code.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $160. I’m very happy with that value, and I feel like this box matches my style and beauty preferences so well – it’s one of my favorites!
