This box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Aster Market Subscription Box Review – September 2015 Makeup Bag

Frankie & Coco Cosmetic Pouch – Value $24

This measures 4.5″ X 9″ X (3″at the base). I love the fabric pattern, and this piece is really well-made. I love the ribbon zipper detail, and the lining with Frankie & Coco stamp inside:

Aster Market Subscription Box Review – September 2015 Bracelets

Stephanie Martin Bracelets – Value $10

If you’ve read any of my jewelry box reviews, you may know that I have a thing for delicate gold jewelry! This bracelet set is perfect for me – and it is informal enough for everyday wear.

Be FREE Designs Jewelry Dish – Value $10

Another piece I like! I may end up gifting this to my mom since I have a few jewelry dishes now, and with the “Loved” wording, I think it will be a great gift!

Here is the dish with the bracelets to give you a better idea of scale:

Aster Market Subscription Box Review – September 2015 Notepad

Quill & Fox Book Club Notepad – Value $8

I used to complain about getting too many notepads/notebooks in subscription boxes, but lately I’m really enjoying them! This design is adorable, and Quill & Fox is a new discovery for me. They are now tied with Rifle Paper Co. in my book for favorite paper designers!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $52. That’s an improvement over the value in the August box, and for me, the items are better fits this month too. This still isn’t a high value box, but I think they are doing a great job at curating a box that feels like you’re unwrapping a gift filled with unique finds.

  1. Just loved this box! Each item feels so thoughtful. Plus of all the canvas makeup bags I have received lately (and there have been many) this one I actually would have picked for myself.

  2. How long will the coupon code last? Thank you.

  3. And my package has definitely been stolen. I hate my neighborhood sometimes.

    • OK, not stolen per se – just found the box thrown behind my porch, ripped open and with all the items gone. ::insert inappropriate curse words::

      • I cant believe that! They stole it right off your porch?

      • Well, I mean I can believe it but it makes me really bummed out!

      • If this is a regular occurrence, you might consider using Mailboxes, Inc or a place like that where they’ll sign for the packages and hold them until you pick them up. It’s a bit of a hassle, to be sure, but at least you’ll get what you’ve ordered.

      • I found one of my neighbors beauty boxes, empty, on the side of my house. Totally understand how you feel (I’ve had things stolen from my front door, too). Very sad that people cannot respect others property. I hope they send you a replacement.

    • I’m going to start having things sent to my parents’ house. They have an entryway that’s a little safer. I’m so frustrated, though – this is the third thing that has been stolen in the last two months. I couldn’t believe it when I found the empty box, though – that takes balls to stand on someone’s porch and open their mail!

      My brother suggested I contact the police and the post office – not that there’s anything they can (or will) do, but it may be happening to other people in the neighborhood.

      I haven’t contacted Aster Market – it wasn’t their fault. They did what they were supposed to and sent me a box. They can’t be held responsible for what happened after it was delivered.

      • Actually, just realized I’ve had four things stolen – one of the Target boxes went missing too. It’s gotten worse since my housemates moved out – one of them used to be home from work at 2:30, so I could call her and ask her to bring things in once I saw they’d been delivered.

        Thanks for the sympathy! 🙂

      • That’s so horrible that someone would do that! So sorry to hear that.

        I just really don’t understand people sometimes. Hopefully having things sent to your parents will help with future boxes. Maybe Aster can do something for you, even though it’s not their fault.

      • Let’s hope…of course, now my family will know how much money I’m spending on subscription boxes! This may be the impetus I need to cut back…except, of course, I love them all….help!

      • Well, one good thing – I just filed a police report, and thanks to MSA I knew exactly what was in the package and how much each item was worth. 🙂

  4. I’m not a subscriber. I like the items in the box especially the makeup bag. The bracelet and jewelry dish go great together. I like the notepad design.

  5. I really like the bracelet(s), and they’re great for stacking with others that I have. I’ll probably use the bag more as a clutch than a make-up bag. I like the dish and the notepad, too.

  6. I really liked this box! The bracelet(s) are great — very delicate and definitely stackable with others that I have. I like the bag a lot; will probably use it more as a clutch-type bag than a make-up bag. The dish is cute, and I can always use more notepads.

  7. I’ve been liking this box in general, my only small gripe is we’ve had paper products now both months. I’m hoping for no paper products next month. I do really like though that none of the items feel like “filler”, everything seems to have been chosen intentionally.
