Luxe Pineapple Post Subscription Box Review + Coupon– Aug 2016
LuxePineapple is a female-owned beauty company based in Austin, Texas. Their goal is to source the best in skincare and cosmetics while offering them at great prices. They also have their own brand of cosmetics! The subscription service, LuxePineapple Post, sends you 4 or more beauty and lifestyle items from anything in the makeup, skincare, hair care, beauty accessory, jewelry, clothing accessory categories and more. I’ve also noticed that they feature many small and/or women-owned businesses.

Each box comes with an info card and a letter from the owner. This month’s theme is New Neutrals and features items to help start transitioning to autumn.
Rosebud Salve is a cult favorite multipurpose lip balm! I own the classic tin version but this tube version is even better! The info letter details multiple ways to use Rosebud Salve, such as over lipstick for a dewy look, on hair to smooth frizz, cuticle softener, eye makeup remover, and more. It’s also cruelty free. I put on a thick layer of lip balm every night before bed, so this will be great to place on my bedside table.
Kaya Soaps is an Etsy shop that specializes in soaps, skincare, and spa products. The bar is looks gorgeous in the tin. It melts slowly upon contact with my body heat, and it has nice slip without feeling greasy. I also love the scent– citrusy and aromatic! I will definitely use this when the weather starts to cool.
This bent liner brush is great for picking up liquid, powder, cream, and gels. I’m totally a makeup brush amateur but the bent shape really makes it easier to apply gel liner. The bristles are soft but stiff enough to control every stroke.
This is a delicate fan brush perfect for highlighting the cheeks and cupid’s bow. The edges of mine were bent during transit but it should straighten out on its own. The brush is feathery soft to ensure that I won’t be heavy-handed with my highlighting.
This is a dark brown gel liner. The only other gel eyeliner I’ve used before is from Bobbi Brown. Compared to Bobbi Brown, this formula is creamier and softer, and because of that it gives a somewhat streaky application. I have to go over my lines a few times to get the desired intensity. On the plus side, the C-217 bent liner brush makes it easy to get straight, clean lines. I can easily smudge it out for some smokey eye flavor. Once it sets it has great staying power and lasts throughout the day with minimal smudging or feathering. It’s a solid eyeliner for this price point and is a great find for my oily lids!
Swatches of the Dark Chocolate Gel Liner.
This infinity scarf is from the Elizabeth Koh Fall 2016 Collection and was made in Thailand. Subscribers received this in various fall/winter shades; mine is Rich Sand. I love my beige colored one. It feels soft and lightweight, plus it will go well with many outfits! The scarf insert says that the Elizabeth Koh team employs female artisans in Northern Thailand and is dedicated to ethical treatment of all their employees. Also, with each scarf sold they provide shelter, education, and a loving home environment to abandoned children in Thailand through SOS Children’s Villages.
Dermadeli Lavish Lips Collagen Serum – $28.99
Subscribers who have been with LuxePineapple Post prior to July 26th received an extra item or two. I have received both of these in past LuxePineapple boxes. The glass nail file is great for nail upkeep. The Dermadeli lip serum in particular is a favorite of mine for smoothing and nourishing the lips. I’m thrilled to get another one!
Verdict: This is a wonderful box for transitioning to fall. The total value this month is $49.46 (I did not count the extra items), which is more than twice the cost of subscription. Even though this is on the lower end of their usual value, I thought it was still a fantastic selection. The Elizabeth Koh scarf alone was worth the cost. Plus, I love and will use every single product, which rarely happens!
