Neiman Marcus POPSUGAR Must Have Box 2015 Review
Every year, POPSUGAR and Neiman Marcus release a limited edition box – and every year I buy one! In general, I think it is a great way to get quite a few luxe gift items at a discount – or just a great way to gift yourself!
FYI – the Neiman Marcus POPSUGAR Must Have Box is still available for purchase.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
And of course, the packaging is always wonderful for these boxes!
And in case you are buying this box and planning to split up items into gifts, the good news is that everything comes in its own packaging:
The Box: Neiman Marcus POPSUGAR Must Have Box
The Cost: $250
The Products: 7 items total, with a total value of $650+. “Neiman Marcus and POPSUGAR have partnered together to make your holidays even more festive. We carefully curated our favorites of the season to bring you the best in fashion, beauty, home, and more! Limited quantities available.”
FYI – Sold exclusively on POPSUGAR Must Have.
The box comes with a fold out card detailing each of the items included.
Eddie Borgo Small Chain Tassel Pendant Necklace – Value $125
This is the first spoiler we got for the box, and I like it a lot better in person than in the spoiler picture! Here is a better look at the detail:
It’s a classic piece, and while I don’t normally wear silver, I’m debating about keeping this one! It will make a beautiful gift, though.
Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer Set in Pop Life – Value $24
(Nail Polishes are regularly $18 individually)
Polish colors: A Fine Romance, Dark Side of the Moon, and Stairway to Heaven.
I love these shades! The pale pink shade has a subtle micro shimmer, and the Dark Side of the Moon polish is a gorgeous deep purple creme. Plus a top coat glitter polish is always festive for the holidays!
Mela Artisans Tray – Value $130 Value
This might be my favorite piece in the box. It has a good weight to it, and it is very well made. The colors are a great neutral for our living room, and I love the natural variation in the individual pieces. (If you scroll down on this page you can see more about the process for making the tray).
Here is a closer look at the side:
Kevyn Aucoin The Look Book – Value $45
When it comes to subscription boxes, I think candles and palettes are my ultimate weaknesses! So, I was pretty excited when I saw this palette in the box! (Plus a few MSA readers had mentioned how great Kevyn Aucoin products are in the spoilers post!)
On the inside of the palette, there are instructions for both a natural and dramatic look. And here are the colors:
The top four eye shadow colos: Shimmering Wheat (All over base), Soft Clay (lid), Bronze (Crease), and Coffee Bean (Liner).
Then two creamy glow blush options: Tresbelle and Tansoleil
And two lip glosses: Beaugonia and Tammabelle
Here is everything swatched:
(lip glosses, blush creams, then eye shadows).
I’m very impressed with the pigment! Plus I also love the sleek/luxe packaging of this palette too!
Super by RetroSuperFuture Sunglasses – Value $159
These glasses are a perfect example of why I love these special edition POPSUGAR boxes. Would I ever pay $160 for sunglasses? (No). But considering I paid about $35 for these – I’m thrilled. ($35.71 X 7 items = $250 total cost). I think they’re a classic style I’ll wear for a while too!
RabLabs Cele Clock – Value $120
(This item had variation – I’ve seen several different colors on Instagram, swaps, etc).
I was originally thinking I would have preferrred to get one of the neutral colors, but I’m really happy with this bold blue color. (Maybe it’s from subscribing to POPSUGAR for so long – a box without a cobalt blue item would feel weird!)
This piece measures about 5 inches across and it can be used as a clock or photo frame. I think I’m going to place it somewhere in the house where light will shine through it – the stone is gorgeous!
Here is the back of the frame:
Vosges Organic Peanut Butter Bon Bons – Value $24
Another beautiful item to gift… but we totally opened it instead:
I had told my husband Eric to try these out and let me know how they were for the review, and the box is gone now – so I guess that’s a rave review!
Verdict: I’m very happy with the Neiman Marcus POPSUGAR Must Have Box this year! When I think about the box in terms of $35 per item, I can justify the cost, and everything in this box feels special. I like their mix of beauty, home and fashion items too. I was hoping for a candle in this box since we got one in the 2014 and 2013 boxes, but maybe there will be one in the Special Edition boxes!
