LuxePineapple Collection Zip Top Bikini Bag – $18
This is a large baggie! I like the polka dot print but the green icon and text clashes so much with the pink. Maybe if the text was bolder I wouldn’t mind so much. The interior is lined with PVC which I find very useful. I’m excited to use this for a variety of things such as a garment bag or makeup storage, or anything, really.
Pieces to Peaces Love Knot – $9.99
This headband wasn’t listed on the info card; I think it’s a bonus item for subscribers. I received Love Knots from a previous LuxePineapple box and liked how soft they were. Headbands aren’t really my thing but this one pulls back my hair neatly and without headaches. I really like the knot design too!
This is a creamy eye primer designed to lock in eye makeup and prevent shadows from creasing. It’s smooth when applied and dries down to a transparent finish, leaving behind a nice soft canvas for eye makeup. My eyeshadows stayed put longer and looked more vibrant while using this primer.
Earth’s Own Bath N Body is a woman-owned brand and their Etsy shop features some really neat handmade products! Fire Opal is a shimmery champagne colored loose mineral pigment. It can be applied wet or dry and used as eyeshadow or highlighter. One thing to point out: there isn’t a sifter (the Etsy site explains that they took out the sifter after customer feedback) which makes things really difficult for me.
I swatched this with and without the Elizabeth Mott primer, shown below. The swatch with primer really brings out its shimmery gorgeousness!
Green & Lovely is another woman-owned brand. The Lip + Cheek Tint is made with 98% certified organic ingredients and contains no artificial ingredients or colorants. Brick Red looks pigmented in the tube but applies super sheer. The color is buildable to a point but I would treat this as more of a lip balm than anything else. Speaking of lip balm, this is very moisturizing and has a lot of slip. It’s not sticky at all.
Elevé Cosmetics is yet another new brand for me. They are a woman-owned brand based in Austin. This is the 1oz travel-sized finishing spray that’s sweat and heat resistant. It has a fresh scent and dries quickly. It kept my makeup looking sharp throughout the day.
Swatches from top to bottom: Earths Own Fire Opal eyeshadow without Elizabeth Mott primer, Earths Own Fire Opal eyeshadow with primer, and Green & Lovely Lip + Cheek Tint.
Verdict: I continue to adore my monthly LuxePineapple Post! I love that they showcase small and/or women-owned businesses. Also, most of the time these brands are new to me or never before featured in other subscription boxes, and I think that’s super exciting. I also appreciate that Liz, the owner, sends a letter every month explaining all their product choices. My favorite product this month is the bikini bag– it’s sturdy and great for many occasions. Total retail value this month is around $76. It’s less than prior months but still a great value.
Overall, LuxePineapple Post is a nice change of pace from the more mainstream beauty brands and sub boxes. This is my humble opinion, of course, but I think they are succeeding in the small business and woman-owned niche and should market themselves as such too.
