The themes this month are: trendsetting, personalize, style, floral, illuminating.
Now, on to the items!
This wallet has an embossed faux snakeskin finish with gold hardware accents.
The inside is lined in grey and includes 4 card slots and one pocket for cash.
It fits almost any phone (including 7+) and measures 7 X 3.5 inches.
I was even able to fit a lip balm in there with my phone! My favorite part about this wallet is the zipper – no worries about anything falling out. And since I can fit all essentials in it, it’s easy to move it from purse to purse.
I’m trying to declutter my regular purse, so this is a perfect wallet for me to only keep essentials.
Figs & Rouge Brightening Primer – Value $45
This is an oil-free primer/highlighter hybrid. You can use it as both a makeup base and as a highlighter! The liquid formula is super easy to blend out, and it left my skin looking fresh and dewy.
If you are looking for a subtle highlighter, this is your product. If you want a highlighter that really pops, you’ll probably just want to use this as a primer and use a different product for bold highlight.
Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit – Value $25
How gorgeous is this black lace packaging?
f you aren’t familiar with Lipstick Queen, it’s a super popular color-changing makeup brand! Their formulas are designed to give you a custom color based on your skintone.
This blush is black in the pan but goes on as a sheer berry with a super subtle gold shimmer.
Ready for the magic? Here it is swatched beneath the highlighter:
And Lipstick Queen included a card on the blush as well:
On the back are instructions for how to win The Smokey Lip Collection by modeling your blush:
Hat Attack Buji Baja Coco Flower Pin – Value $17
This floral pin is made of a material that feels a bit like silk. POPSUGAR recommends attaching it to your coat, blouse, purse, bracelet etc. as a new fall accessory.
I have to be honest, this item really put me out of my fashion comfort zone and isn’t something I would have bought myself. But… that’s part of the allure of subscription boxes, right? Trying new things? Discovering new products?
So, I present to you, me, trying my best:
(I’m also wearing the makeup in this box, but I realize it’s pretty hard to tell!)

Yes to warm, cozy, and useful socks! These are a stretchy and warm pair of knee-high socks. The material composition is 76% acrylic, 5% wool, 16% polyester, and 3% spandex, so you don’t have to worry about them being itchy, either.
These would be great for under long boots, or maybe even peeking out about booties?
Or just for lounging around at home with a book and a warm cup of tea/coffee/etc! (Can you tell I’m already in fall cozy mode?)
If you aren’t familiar with Pipcorn, it’s tiny popcorn! (About half the size of regular popcorn.)
When I first tried this brand, I was worried tiny popcorn meant lots of kernel issues. But the hulls on their kernels are actually more delicate than regular popcorn, so you have fewer issues with getting them stuck in your teeth!
And the kettle flavor is fantastic! It’s made with a blend of cane sugar and brown sugar, and it’s not overly sweet like some kettle corn.
Verdict: I am digging the dark vibes of this box! I’m starting to see Halloween decorations pop up, and this box feels appropriate without being a Halloween box at all! And while the jury is still out for me on the flower pin, I’m loving everything else in this box. I think this is the first time POPSUGAR has sent a wallet in a monthly box, too – impressive! And I LOVE that they got the newly released Lipstick Queen blush in this box. It really helps make this box feel ahead of trends and special.
And this box has a value of $159!
