POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Box Review – October 2016
POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a less expensive subscription box from POPSUGAR Must Have! The subscription box includes 2 full-size items, (beauty, fashion or home), and these items will be different than those featured in the regular POPSUGAR Must Have box.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Like the regular POPSUGAR Must Have Box, this box includes an info card detailing the items included.
This blush/bronzer duo was also in the Today Show POPSUGAR Special Edition box, and it was one of my favorite items in the box, so I’m happy to have another one!
The packaging is fab. I love the gold text on the embossed black print. Gorgeous!
The formula is great, too. The pigment is lovely, and the pressed powder has such a silky finish – it feels so good on your skin.
(One word of caution – the pan itself popped out when I opened this compact, so I added a little glue to put it back in place.)
Here are the shades swatched:
I used several swipes so you can really see the color, but it is buildable, so you don’t have to worry about overdoing it with one brush stroke.
Kitsch Patch Sticks – Value $8
This patch sticker was inspired by the designs from Power Your Happy by Lisa Sugar.
This sticker is made from vegan leather (it has a little dimension to it). Here is a closer look:
They recommend putting it on laptops, phones, bags, etc. (Not clothing):
I tried it out on my laptop, and I think it looks really cute:
Good news, this is described as a one time use sticker, but I was able to remove it and put it back on my laptop without losing any stickiness, or leaving any stickiness behind on the laptop.
Friendship Socks – Retail Value $15
A pair of socks ready for gifting or keeping! Friendship Socks lets you easily send a gift of socks to your friend (you get to message them through Facebook to let them know socks are on the way), or you can subscribe to get socks every month and your friends will get socks every month, too!
You can send a friend a pair of socks for $10, buy a set (a pair for you, a pair for them for $22), or sign up for a subscription to get a pair for you and a friend every month for as low as $16 a month.
And the best part:
The socks are really cute!
(These socks are 80% cotton, 16% nylon, 4% lycra, and made in the USA.)
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $55. I think this box is a good mix of luxe, fun, and practical items – plus sending 3 items instead of 2 is always a good thing! This is one of my favorite mini boxes in this subscription so far.
I think if you bought the Today Show POPSUGAR Special Edition Box, and you don’t want/need another bronzer/blush that part of the box may be a letdown, but I really liked the compact (and you can’t buy it online anymore) so it is a win for me.
