Nina Garcia Quarterly Subscription Box Review #NGQ07
This is the 7th Nina Garcia Quarterly subscription box. Typically her boxes are mainly fashion related with a few beauty items.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
(Everything comes wrapped in Nina’s hashtag paper).
The Subscription Box: Nina Garcia for Quarterly
The Cost: $100 a box plus shipping
The Products: Items hand selected by Nina Garcia!
Ships to: Everywhere (US $8, Canada $30; rest of world +$40)
Each Quarterly box comes with a letter from the curator describing the theme for that quarter, and background on every item they selected.
For this box, Nina picked out items inspired by the runway that you can wear in every day life.
Jules Smith Americana Choker – Value $98
This was the spoiler for this box, and I was so excited about it – I love the simple and clean design of this piece. Subscribers will get various metal finishes, and I was hoping for classic yellow gold, but this rose gold is lovely, too.
Jennifer Behr Satin Knot Headband – Value $194? (patterns/styles may vary)
I can’t find this headband for sale online, so I’m assuming it is older stock, but the sold out listings I found listed it for $194.
The pattern and material on this piece are stunning:
I’m not sure if I can pull off this look, though. (And I don’t need a $200 headband to hold back my hair when I use masks!)
This may be swapped or gifted if I won’t wear it – it is too beautiful to stay in my hair accessories drawer next to $.25 hair ties!
Bauble Bar Stud Blossom Duo – Value $34
These earrings measure about 3/4 inch across. I like the muted colors of these gems – it’s a nice way to add a subtle pink touch to a look.
Lolobag Makeup Bag – Value $28
This bag is very cute and VERY tiny – it measures 3.5″ tall, 4.5″ wide and 2″ deep. Even though Nina describes it as a makeup bag, I’d think of it as more of a coin purse or a makeup bag for sample sized makeup!
NYX Simple Vamp Lip Cream Pencil – Value $6.50
This lip cream pencil has a lot of pigment and unfortunately is way too bold/dark for me. But I expect to see some items in this box that push my boundaries, so I’m OK with the most inexpensive item in the box not working for me! (Swatched below)
Eyeko Brow Gel – Value $25
This is paraben free, and does the job! All brow gels seem to work for me – so I’ll use whatever brand/sample I have on hand. This one works!
Face Stockholm False Eyelashes – Value $12
Nina recommends wearing these at night – they can be a bold look, especially if you don’t usually wear false lashes (me).
Verdict: I think if you signed up for this box because of the Jules Smith necklace spoiler (basically the cost of the box) and see the rest of the items as bonus, then it is a good box. For me, I absolutely loved the necklace when I first saw the spoiler, so I fall into that category.
That being said, without the necklace, this box would have been more of a miss for me.
