The theme for October is Happy Fall Y’all!
Southern Hospitality Foot Soak – Value $5
This is a foot soak made to look like a giant tea bag! There may have been different “flavors” sent out; I received Southern Peach. I’ll admit I rarely pamper my feet, so this is something I’m looking forward to. Right now, however, the only place I have for a foot soak is my bathtub and that’s not going to work very well. Instead, I will hold onto this until I get a foot tub.
I am in love with this mini pot! This is a hand-thrown and glazed clay pot and can be used as decoration, shelf art, tiny bud vase, toothpick holder, or a plant holder. I love that it is also food, dishwasher, and microwave safe!
I might use this to hold cotton swabs but I’m open to other suggestions.
Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Cheeks – Value $23
I have a sample size of this blush in a different shade and love it to pieces. I’m happy I received the shade in Bright Coral. The blush feels creamy and applies very smoothly. I also appreciate the buildable coverage– I’m all about Korean makeup trends right now, which means soft colors and sheer makeup for me. This means that I can be heavy handed with my application without worrying about really pink cheeks. The color swatch is below.
I just knew there was going to be pumpkin spice involved this month! Green & Lovely was first featured in the June LuxePineapple Post and I’m happy to see them again. This body lotion uses USDA certified organic fragrance oil as well as organic sunflower oil and aloe. It smells warm and delicious without being cloying. Plus, it hydrates without any greasy or tacky feeling. You can see from the photo that some of the oils started separating from the lotion. I fixed it easily by mixing the lotion around for a few seconds.
Fall Toned Bangle Bracelet Stack – Value $10
I am very fussy about my bracelets. It has to be easy to put on, it can’t clink around or get in my way, it shouldn’t dig into my wrist… the nit picky list goes on. This set is something I can work with! It’s wrapped in colorful thread so that the bangles don’t clink together or scratch at my laptop while I work. It also fits my wrists. I’m definitely looking forward to pairing these with my fall ensembles.
The fall color palette is great. Everyone should receive a stack of 12 bangles, but somehow I ended up with a baker’s dozen!
LuxePineapple Liquid Matte Lipstick in Spice – Value $10
This is a bonus thank-you item for subscribers who are celebrating their 6-month anniversary with the subscription. The shade I received, Spice, is a bright red with a slight orange undertone. I adore the formula. The lipstick is creamy, opaque, and applies very easily. Although it’s not completely transfer proof, the color stays put for a very long time.
Here are the swatches for the Elizabeth Mott blush and LuxePineapple Liquid Matte Lipstick. The blush looks more peachy-pink than coral on my skin. The lipstick swatch looks glossy here but it does dry to a solid matte finish.
Verdict: The total retail value is $53 (not counting the bonus item), which is more than twice the cost of the subscription. I loved this month’s curation. It had a little bit of everything, from jewelry to makeup to home goods. Also, I appreciate that LuxePineapple continues to introduce me to amazing small businesses and their products.
