Luxe Pineapple Post Subscription Box Review + Coupon– Jul 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 “Pretty New Necessities” and all the brands in the box support woman-owned businesses and all products are cruelty-free.
Subscribers get either Heavenly Hair or Peppermint Eucalyptus. It smells very minty fresh and lathers well. Since this was my first ever shampoo bar it was a bit challenging to use (do I lather my hands first? Rub the whole thing on my hair?) My locks and scalp felt just as clean as using regular shampoo, but I disliked the high-friction “squeaky clean” feeling after rinsing. I will continue to use this bar but only on my body.
This hinge bracelet is made of weighty, sturdy metal. It’s so classy! I think there are different color variations. Mine has beautiful green and blue enamel, but since I rarely wear bracelets I will pass this on to someone else.
Kroma Mineral Blush (pan only) – $18.90
Kroma Makeup blushes are talc-free and gluten-free (I didn’t know eyeshadows could contain gluten!). I received the shade Ideal, which looks like a coral or dusty rose. It’s a matte finish and can be highly pigmented if I’m not careful with my application. The color suits my skin tone very well!
This split pan highlighter and bronzer duo has a twist-off lid and can be used for a variety of looks. They feel buttery soft and apply brilliantly. Both shades have a satiny glow that really brightens my face without being overwhelming. I like using both shades as eyeshadows too!
Swatches from left to right: Kroma Mineral Blush in Ideal, Manna Kadar Highlighter, and Manna Kadar Bronzer.
6 Pan Magnetic Palette – $10
This is my very first customizable magnetic palette and it complements the Kroma Mineral Blush. It can hold six 36mm or smaller pans. The silver pans are placeholders and are easy to remove– just hold the palette upside down and give it a gentle tap.
Here’s the result! I inserted the Manna Kadar duo and Kroma Mineral Blush into the leftmost pans. The rest are miscellaneous samples that I put together for a make-your-own contouring palette! The hardest part is removing pans from their original holders. I struggled with a couple, as you can tell from the dents and crumbly bits.
Verdict: This month’s box was very fun to open. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the shampoo bar but I loved everything else, especially the utility of the magnetic palette. Total retail value is $80.90, which is more than three times the cost of subscription. I continue to be extremely impressed with the quality and value I get from LuxePineapple Post. I also like that they’re introducing me to so many small or women-owned businesses!
