POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Fall 2016 Box Review
Ever fall, POPSUGAR releases a $100 POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Fall Box filled with fall favorites. (This box has since sold out).
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Cost: $100
The Products: “It has a theme that stretches across fashion and beauty, and there’s also a big focus on a beautiful shade everyone is talking about…. Transitioning into next season is easy when you have a style kit ready to keep you looking your best when you’re on the go. You’ll always be cozy with just the right amount of shimmer.”
Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.
This year’s fall box was fashion-focused.
Consider this your ticket to Fashion Week in a single box, because we’ve got you over with the very best of this season’s most buzzed-about beauty and style picks.
Time to go through the items!
This oversized knit scarf is so soft and cozy! It measures 14 by 82 inches, so you have plenty of scarf to wrap around you! Here is a closer look at the knit:
(The scarf is 90% Acrylic and 10% Mohair.)
I love the light lavender color of this scarf – it’s an unexpected color for cold weather! I paired it with a beige sweater and grey purse to play up that winter pastel palette:
This scarf is listed as “With Love from Eurostar,” and there was a Eurostar folded card with the scarf as well:
They included 10 tips for an effortless trip:
Jack & Lucy Faux Fur Pom Keychain – Retail Value $41
(FYI – you might have seen the Jack & Lucy brand in other POPSUGAR boxes before – this brand is a POPSUGAR Must Have exclusive.)
I know poms are very of the moment right now, so I’m not too surprised to see this in a fashion-focused Limited Edition box. Personally, it isn’t something I would go out and buy for $41, but it’s a pretty adorable keychain!
POPSUGAR also suggests using it as bag accessory, and as a “playful addition to your belt loop.” Let us know if you have any other creative suggestions!
Sloane Stationery Great Thoughts Notepad – Retail Value $52
This notepad is a seriously gorgeous desk accessory. It’s embossed with rose-gold text, and “produced using the traditional craft of bookbinding.”
Inside, there are 180 lined sheets:
And it is in Lisa Sugar’s signature color!
Caeden Linea No. 1 Faceted Ceramic & Rose Gold On-Ear Headphones – Retail Value $150 (On Amazon for $99)
They are stunning, and exactly the kind of tech item I’d want to see in a “style kit ready to keep you looking your best when you’re on the go.”
The rose gold metal detail looks perfect with the white vegan leather, and the detachable cord also has a remote/mic function.
The sound quality of these headphones is good, the style is gorgeous, but my favorite part is the comfort and fit. These headphones are SO light and the fit is low-compression, so I was able to wear them for hours without any discomfort! (That’s a first for me!)
Good to know – if you’re getting a new iPhone, it will come with a wired headphone adapter, but you can also buy one for $9.
Lancer Skincare Dani Glowing Skin Perfector – Retail Value $95
YES! I love when POPSUGAR includes a high-end skincare item in their Limited Edition boxes, and this one practically covers the cost of the box!
This formula is designed to give your skin a glow, blur pore visibility, and also boost skin firmness. I’ve sampled other Lancer Skincare products in the past, and I’ve been consistently impressed with the formulas.
This one works in a few different ways, too. You can apply this all over your face and neck, or just use it as a highlighter. It also works very well as a primer, and depending on the coverage of your foundation, you’ll still get some of the glow effects shining through, too.
I love any makeup product that gives my skin a dewy but NOT oily look, and this one gets an A+ from me. Plus I love that it has long term skincare benefits in addition to the instant glow and pore blurring!
This multi-use makeup stick is highlighting your cheeks and lips. This shade is a rose gold shimmer.
I like that you get a built-in blending brush, too! This formula blends really well, but the rose gold shimmer shade isn’t showing up too well with my skin tone, so I think I’m going to try using this stick for layering a little shimmer over my regular lip color.
Here it is swatched:
This formula is also all-natural, vegan, cruelty-free, and free of parabens, and sulfates, too.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $444. I think that’s one of the best retail values I’ve seen for a Limited Edition box from POPSUGAR! Even if I might not pay retail prices for some of the items like the pom, that’s what makes these boxes so great – the cost per item works out to $16.67! Definitely worth it!
