Nanette Nanette Lepore Classic Rose Gold Watch – Value $55
Nanette Lepore is launching her new watch category this month called Nanette Nanette Lepore and partnered with POPSUGAR to create an exclusive design as a first look into the new collection. Watch for this new collection on Bloomingdales.com later this month.
This watch has a beige vegan leather strap and a white enamel dial with rose gold roman numerals, hands and face. Battery included.
I know quality can vary on vegan leather, and I’m very impressed with the material quality of the strap. I love the beige coloring too – it almost looks ballet-slipper-pink against the rose gold accents.
And the detail on the rose gold dials is beautiful:
Here is the other side of the strap:
Also (let me know if I’m the only one who feels this way), but one reason I love POPSUGAR exclusives is when I see someone wearing a POPSUGAR item in public – and I think, “Yay! A fellow subscription box addict!”
Pixi by Petra Book of Beauty Minimal Makeup – Value $24
Yay for palettes! This one is described as everything you need for a “barely there” look, and I think the colors are perfect for spring. Here it is opened:
The set includes two highlighters, two cheek shades, and 4 eyeshadows. The pigment on these shades is good, but since the idea is “barely there” makeup, some of them don’t show up well on my wrist:
The highlighters and eyeshadows are the most pigmented, the blush and bronzer are a little more subdued.
I really like this set! Since it is a barely there/natural look palette, it’s something I’ll use every day, and I’m really loving the highlighter shades – a little goes a long way with those!
Miss Ivy Pearl Five Tassel Necklace – Value $38
(I can’t find this online, so I’m assuming it was made exclusively for POPSUGAR!)
Here is a closer look at the tassels:
(Good news – this necklace was shipped with the tassels sealed in plastic to keep them in form!)
And here it is on:
This isn’t a piece I would have picked out for myself, but I really like the beachy vibes of tassel colors! It should be good for layering, too.
And it’s a different style from anything we’ve received from POPSUGAR in the past!
Govino Go-Anywhere Carafe and Water Glass Set – Value $14.95
(This set is BPA-Free but not dishwasher safe.) Here is the set:
Each Govino piece has an ergonomic thumb-notch:
I think this is a great nightstand item or something to keep on hand for guests.
Hello Extra Whitening Fluoride Toothpaste – Value $4.49
I’ve sampled Hello before thanks to subscription boxes, and I really like their products!
If you aren’t familiar with Hello, their products are free from artificial sweeteners, dyes, artificial flavors, microbeads, triclosan, gluten, saccharin, and peroxide.
And I always need toothpaste, so I’m happy to get a stylish looking tube in a box!
Goodie Girl Cookies in Toffee Chaos – Value $5
And POPSUGAR’s streak of sending ridiculously good snacks and sweets in boxes continues! These are gluten and peanut free, and according to my husband, “FANTASTIC with coffee.”
No surprise – the bag is empty now.
My Lola First Box Free Coupon – $10 Value
My Lola is a 100% cotton tampon subscription service. Each card has a unique coupon code. Here are the redemption details:
Offer valid through 4/30/16. Valid on one-box orders only. New customers only. One per customer.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $142 – not counting the value of the My Lola free box. Considering how awesome the February box was, I think this is a great follow-up box! It has a nice spring vibe, and a good mix of stylish and practical items. I think my favorite item in the box is either the watch or the palette – both are so pretty!
