Luxor Box Limited Edition “Most Requested” Box Review
At the end of August, Luxor Box announced their Limited Edition “Most Requested” Box. This box is curated based on the most requested products Luxor Box receives via social media and email.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Box: Luxor “Most Requested” Box
The Cost: $135 to the US, $165 to Canada
The Products: $450+ worth of most requested products (not previously featured in Luxor boxes), with one jewelry piece that you can select metal choice for: gold or silver. (The jewelry piece is not earrings).
This box came with an info card detailing the categories of items that are most requested:
Jewelry, Makeup, Hair Accessories, French Perfume, and Gourmet Treats
And then Specific Product requests for each category.
The box also included mini info cards for each item.
Robyn Rhodes Bracelet and Ring Set
Luxor Box allowed customers to select gold or silver for their jewelry choice in this box.
Robyn Rhodes Xavier Bracelet – Value $89
Robyn Rhodes Cody Adjustable Ring – Value $80
This bracelet is 14kt gold finished over brass. (I’m assuming the ring is the same material – I just can’t find it on their website).
If you read this blog frequently, you may be sick of hearing me say I love delicate gold jewelry – but I do! This bracelet is definitely my taste, and I like the ring too, but it isn’t very comfortable. I may need to try adjusting the metal.
Deepa Gurnani Irene Headband in Gold – Value $62
(Subscribers will receive this headband in gold or silver based on their gold/silver selection).
I just realized that I have two other Deepa Gurani pieces thanks to subscription boxes, and they are now my go-to wedding/special event pieces. (I have a necklace from the POPSUGAR Must Have 2015 Fall Special Edition Box, and a hair clip from the September 2013 Sample Society box).
I really like the design and quality of these pieces, so I’m happy to have another one in my collection. I originally thought I wouldn’t be able to pull off this look, but in wavy/semi curly hair, it only shows a little, and I like the look!
Here is a better look at the detail:
French Perfume was one of their most requested categories. I personally think perfume is a tough item to send out in subscription boxes since it is so taste-specific, but hopefully most customers love this scent.
The packaging is gorgeous:
The bottle and cap are wrapped in leather! The scent is a light citrus perfume, and I like it. (But I LOVE the packaging!)
MarieBelle Chocolate & Sea Salt Bar – Value $8
(Customers will receive either Chocolate & Sea Salt, Rum Raisins or Running Espresso).
More beautiful packaging! Here it is opened:
MarieBelle Chocolate Covered Caramel 4-Piece Box – Value $13
These chocolates are gorgeous! (FYI – these are not soft caramels).
These chocolates were the most requested gourmet treat, and my husband Eric definitely enjoyed them!
Bellapierre 5-Piece Travel Brush Set – Value $40
I always want new makeup brushes, so I was excited to see these in the box. I was surprised to see Bellapierre in this box, though. I like the brand a lot, but I’m used to seeing it in Ipsy, Beauty Box 5 and Boxycharm boxes, so it feels a little out of place in this luxe box. (I could be discounting Bellapierre when I shouldn’t be, though – let me know what you think).
Bellapierre 9 Stack in Serenity – Value $90
I love the colors of this stack. (And of course, I appreciate the natural ingredients and no parabens). My only issue with this palette is actually the stack design. Since each pot is the lid of the pot below it, there is no inner lid that only lets out a small amount of powder at a time.
If you’re a little sloppy like me, you may spill a little:
The pigment and shimmer of these shades is great. Here are a few swatched:
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $457. I think the value is great for a $135 box, and these items are a good fit for me, but this box isn’t exactly what I was expecting from a most requested box.
I would have loved it if Luxor Box had let customers know the most requested categories up front when first marketing this box. For example, I wouldn’t have guessed that makeup, hair accessories, and French perfume were in the top 5 most requested categories. (I would have thought maybe something in a home and spa category would have been in there, though). So that would have done a lot in setting expectations and helping customers decide if they should purchase.
I do really appreciate that they let customers select silver or gold on this box, though!
