I’m definitely getting the back-to-school vibes with this box!
Time to dig into the items!
Cargo Cosmetics Powder Blush in The Big Easy – Value $26
This Cargo blush is described as a “Sheer pink with gold and red grapefruit undertones.”
The pigment is buildable and blendable, so you don’t have to worry about overdoing it in one brush stroke. The swatch below is 3 layers to demonstrate the color:
There also is a subtle shimmer that is visible at certain angles.
Cookie Pop Popcorn in Cookies and Cream – Value $4
POPSUGAR is the best at finding delicious treats for their boxes! (I couldn’t eat this because it contains wheat, but I was jealous just smelling the opened bag!)
Fortunately, my husband Eric is always happy to help with sampling POPSUGAR treats! He said the flavor reminded him of Cookie Crisp cereal!
Unplugged Dusti Screen Cleaner – Value $6
These phone screen cleaners have a sticky side so you can stick them to the back of your phone.
Then, peel it off and use the design side whenever you need to clean your screen and get rid of any smudges.
And then put it back on the flipside of your phone!
These will eventually lose their stickiness, but should last a few weeks each! (Anyone else hear Julia Robert’s voice when you say “Big Mistake” in your head?)
Baggu Duck Tote Bag – Value $26 (Patterns may vary)
I absolutely love Baggu bags and this Black Static print is fantastic! It is a perfect nod to back-to-school with the Composition Notebook pattern!
The fabric is a durable cotton canvas material accented with matte silver hardware. It functions as a tote:
As a shoulder bag:
And you can adjust the strap to wear it as a crossbody bag, too:
The bag also has an inner snap pocket perfect for holding your phone:
As you can probably tell, I’m a little obsessed with this bag! (Yes to all things Baggu!)
Triple C Power Gloss in Silver – Value $30
This power charger is designed to look like it belongs in your makeup bag! It comes charged, so you can put it in your purse immediately for backup power.
If you have an iPhone, iPad, etc, you’ll need an iPhone USB cord to connect to it to charge your devices:
And you can use the mini black cord it comes with to plug into your computer to charge the battery back up again. (The indicator light is blue when you are using it to charge your phone, and red when you are charging it back up.)
It really is almost lipstick-sized!
Christian Lacroix Paris Pasio Sticky Note Folio – Value $13
This sticky note desk set is all about ombre! I love the grey to white color with the embossed detail and gold foil:
And the sticky notes are ombre, too!
They are pretty bold – no one will miss these notes!
My desk is getting cuter almost every month thanks to POPSUGAR:
Can you spot any other POPSUGAR items? (I feel like this is Highlights Hidden Pictures for Subscription Box Addicts!)
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $105. As always, POPSUGAR delivers a great value for a $40 box. This is one of my favorite POPSUGAR boxes for 2016. I LOVE getting practical items in subscription boxes that are also super stylish. This box really delivered on that. I know I’ll use all these items regularly and they are easy on the eyes, too!
Plus, I’m in a fall, back-to-school mode, and this box fits that theme well, too!
