Like the regular POPSUGAR Must Have Box, this box includes an info card detailing the items included.
SparklePop Heartbeat Necklace – Value $33
Yay for our first jewelry item in a POPSUGAR Must Have Mini box! I love that this comes with a jewelry box too – it’s perfect for gifting if you don’t want to keep it for yourself.
I really like the heartbeat design of this piece – it’s a simple but unique look! The necklace measures 18 inches long with the extender. (Without extender it is 15.5 inches.)
Rose gold seems to be everywhere this season, so this piece feels right on trend, too.
(This piece also came with a 30% off coupon code for any order on SparklePop.)
Makeup Eraser AmpliLash Instant Fiber Eyelash Extensions – Value $39 (On Sale for $28)
I’ve seen these fiber mascara sets on Instagram, and I’ve been so close to buying one to try it out, so I couldn’t be happier to get this in the mini box!
This set is comprised of two pieces: The Mascara Serum and the Amplifying Fiber Extensions.
This mascara serum gives lash definition, but not a lot of volume, so I wouldn’t use it on its own, but the formula is perfect for the fibers.
One you apply one coat of the mascara serum, you follow that by applying a coat of the fibers. These are just individual small fiber pieces that mimic the look of lashes. They stick easily to the mascara fiber, so you don’t have to worry about them falling off or getting in your eyes.
Once you’ve added the fibers, it is time to do the whole process again! (It only takes about 30 seconds, so it isn’t too time-consuming.) You can keep layering to intensify the look, too. I applied it to one eye so you can see the difference with this mascara:
For this, I did three layers of mascara + fiber. (Sorry about the up-close pic – but I felt a product like this needed a before and after picture!) You could also make the look even bolder if you apply to bottom lashes!
I wore this the entire day and I’m happy to report that I didn’t have any issues with fibers flaking off, and the lift of the mascara held throughout the day, too. Plus, this mascara was surprisingly easy to remove with my regular makeup remover wipes.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $72 (or $61 if you count the sale price of the mascara set.) This is my favorite Must Have Mini Box since this subscription started! The mascara set is something I’ve been dying to try and it works really well too, and the necklace is a very wearable and giftable piece that makes this box feel special.
