POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Box

The POPSUGAR Must Have Fall 2015 Special Edition box went on sale this past month, and I believe sold out within a few days. (Every season or so POPSUGAR releases a one-time-purchase $100 limited edition box in addition to their monthly subscription).

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Necklace

Deepa Gurnani Necklace - $90 Value

When I first saw the spoilers for this box, I didn't catch the bag the necklace came in - and it is beautiful!

Here is just the necklace:

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Necklace Chain

I think this necklace is stunning. It's made with crystals with a fabric backing, and a gun metal grey chain.

I have a wedding coming up this weekend, and I still haven't picked out which dress I'll be wearing, but I know I will be rocking this necklace!

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Palette

Becca Cosmetics Ombre Rouge Eye Palette - $40 Value

This palette is free of parabens, sulfates, fragrances, and phthalates! I also love that all the shades have a matte finish. All these shades are super wearable colors for me, and the matte formula keeps it perfect for everyday makeup. Here are the shades swatched:

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Nail Polish

Smith & Cult Nail Polish in No Poem - $18 Value

I have another Smith & Cult nail polish thanks to Birchbox and I like the formula a lot. I think I like the bottle design even more, though! This is the type of packaging I keep out on display:

The grey creme shade is beautiful too!

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Coasters

Canvas Home Dauville Coasters in Platinum - $46 Value

These are handmade coasters - and they match Canvas Home bowl POPSUGAR sent in the December 2015 box!

Our home decor look is pretty modern, so these are a perfect fit!

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Tray

Swing Design Valet Tray - $54 Value

I absolutely love this tray! The white lacquer sides with the painted blue lining works perfect with our decor, and it is currently on display on our coffee table next to the coasters!

Here it is with the coaster to give a better sense of scale:

I love that even the bottom of the tray is lined in blue felt:

One thing you can never accuse POPSUGAR of - skimping on the blue colored products!

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Tatcha Box

Tatcha Classic Rice Enzyme Powder - $65 Value

This is one of my favorite skincare products of all time - I use it everyday, and I have paid the full retail price for it, so I can basically look at the rest of this box like I got everything else for $35!

POPSUGAR Must Have Special Edition Fall 2015 Box Review Tatcha

 

I love the packaging of all Tatcha products. This classic rice powder is a super gentle exfoliating cleanser - you put a little bit of the powder in your palm then mix it with water to make a paste. Since it is all powder this container lasts me a while!

Verdict: This is my favorite Special Edition box ever. The beauty, fashion and home items are all perfect fits for me. One critique of this box I read in some of the comments is that it doesn't feel like "fall." I would agree with that sentiment - this box doesn't feel very seasonal to me. But it feels glam, and stylish so I love it!

What did you think of the Special Edition Fall 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box?

I wish I had gotten this box! That necklace is so pretty! Did anyone actually get a gold necklace? I see some listed on the swap site with a photo of it in gold, but no one seems to have the gold one? I would love to swap for a gold Aria necklace (already swapped for a gunmetal one)
for a Christmas present for my daughter if anyone has one!

I think the last few LE boxes for fall and holiday for her, have been absolutely amazing. I got the last 2 holiday LE boxes and one fall LE (I forget but I think it was 2 years back but maybe last years)… I wanted this one soooo badly but had just gotten laid off so really couldn’t see spending the money and having it possibly be a bust..lout of course, as always, when I don’t get a box- it’s amazing! I would use the holder as a jewelry display like earrings and rings…. I’m not sure about the necklace, I’ll take your word for it until I have the chance to see it in person (if that ever happens!).

I’m sad I missed out on this one. Everything looks so nicely curated. The regular Popsugar boxes never entice me but the special editions are awesome!

Does anyone know if the nail polish is a new fall shade or from a past season? I can’t find it on the Smith & Cult website. I did find it on a list on Rachel Zoe’s website for the best Fall nail polishes so I think it might be a new shade. Or maybe made just for the PopSugar box? Just curious. And I have to add, this is one of my favorite boxes from PopSugar so far!

I received both RZ and this box today, ran home at lunch time so only got to really open RZ. RZ is not quite my style I’m thinking but I did get a chance to look at the necklace in PS LE and WOW. I am amazed that I like it so much! It hangs more like a decorative collar and the carrying bag is beautiful. I can’t wait to explore the rest of the box!

I missed out on the summer box and was super bummed when I saw the spoilers…so as soon as I saw the fall LE box I ordered it immediately, thinking it was going to have “fall” items. To my surprise there was nothing “fall” about it, except for maybe the eyeshadow and nail polish. However, everything in the box was amazing. I am in the process of redecorating my home and the colors of the tray and the coasters go PERFECTLY with what I’m doing….the necklace is gorgeous, the eyeshadow palette is PERFECT…all the shades I wear….The nail polish bottle is beautiful on it’s own (I love the shade of gray too) and last but not least, the powder was so beautifully packaged I haven’t taken it out yet! The box everything came in is a keeper too…perfect to store things and I love how everything was wrapped. Definitely felt special! A+++

I laughed when I got this because that very morning before I picked it up was the first time I used the Tatcha from the MSA box. I was thinking I liked it, so now I sure have plenty :).

I received this and Rachel Zoes box on Saturday! I love them both. As someone who lives in Florida, I was SUPER happy to not have a scarf, gloves or more wintery item included. I’ll take lux any time. Love that you pointed out the coasters match that bowl. I didn’t even realize that.

I’m generally really pleased with this box and agree that it has a luxe feel. I still haven’t opened the MSA box Tatcha from last fall as I’m still using the Indie Lee cleanser from last fall’s PS box, but I’m happy to have another jar. I really like the necklace, but do wish the beads were glass instead of resin- it would give it a more expensive feel and look–but I guess that would have made the piece too pricey to include. I always feel a little bummed when boxes include pieces that are lower-end versions of a company’s usual products. I’d rather they include a less elaborate necklace with far less beading, etc, that used the real crystal that’s on their other designs.
The eyeshadow is from a fabulous brand and lovely, but as someone who only wears it once a week or so, I can only use so much shadow! so might sell or try to trade that…otherwise I’ll be keeping everything!

I’m starting to wonder if I should cancel my monthly subs and do LE boxes instead… I’ve never bought any LE boxes.

I didn’t love the summer box (great stuff, but nothing I am using, it’s all just sitting around!). So I skipped this one. Wish it was the other way around. Looks like a great box!

Oh man first the summer LE box and now this fabulous fall LE box. I think I am going to start saving now for the Neiman Marcus box. Cant wait for mine to get here! I am so excited to try the Tacha powder after hearing you ladies rave over it! Especially knowing Liz has paid full price for it!

I must be from another planet because this is without a doubt the worst le box I’ve ever seen. Thank God I didn’t order. (exception being the rice powder, I am already stocked up on this tho) Also I hate the necklace.

The box is a bust for me too. Partly because I don’t have a modern decor style (our home style is hand-me-downs still). I’m glad to have some better quality swap bait though.

I was SO happy with this box. I had skipped the summer LE box and wasn’t crazy about last year’s fall, but something told me to pull the trigger on this one and I couldn’t be happier. The lack of stereotypically “fall” items didn’t bother me at all. I live in the desert where it’s still above 100 every day. I’ve been rationing the Tatcha powder from Liz’s MSA box, now I’m excited I can use it a little more regularly.

Not sad I missed this. It’s a good box, don’t get me wrong, but not spectacular. Only the tray would have been an awesome item. The rest are just ‘fine’. Dodged a bullet in this case and kept some $$ in my pocket.

I love the bag the necklace came in too. Mine is different though. It’s navy with a cream pattern. I kind of want to collect just the different bags!
