POPSUGAR Must Have Mini is a new subscription box from POPSUGAR Must Have! The 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.)


The Subscription Box: POPSUGAR Must Have Mini Box

The Cost: $18.95

The Products: Introducing a smaller version of our box of curated, full-sized products including the best in fashion, beauty, and home for only $18.95. In the Must Have MINI Box you will receive 2 full-size items worth over $30. Please note that the products in the Must Have MINI Box will be different from the products offered in the Must Have Box.

Like the regular POPSUGAR Must Have Box, this box includes an info card detailing the items included.


Juice Beauty Phyto Pigment Satin Lip Cream in Blush (Value $24)

This lips cream is organic, vegan, and cruelty-free! It’s part of Juice Beauty’s new cosmetics line with Gwyneth Paltrow as Creative Director. (I’m a little goop-obsessed, and this product has been on my wishlist!)


This shade is so wearable for me – it is immediately going into my daily beauty routine! Here it is swatched, too:


I love coverage/pigment, and the satin finish is perfect – not matte, but not too shiny either! The formula is really hydrating, too.


Baggu Medium 3D Zip Bag in Sailor Stripe – Value $10

Another brand I love! I already have a few of these bags, so this isn’t the most exciting box addition for me, but it is a useful one.


These are great for travel – the bag is a little roomier than your typical makeup bag, and the material is easy to clean if there are any spills.

Verdict: This box has a value of $34. Since I love the Juice Beauty Lipstick (love as in OBSESSED) I’m really happy with the value this month. Basically, I see it as getting a discount on the lip cream and getting a Baggu for free!

  1. This is my 1st mini – switch from the regular box because I’ve been liking what I’ve seen in this box
    Based on the comments I’m in the minority but I’m a bit disappointed
    The lip cream is pretty but No SPF?
    Based on The description of the bag my first thought was it should be waterproof
    Didnt look at the spoilers I told myself if I didn’t like it I would cancel and I guess I’m pretty neutral on this one so what to do?

  2. I have one whole unopened box to swap. Let me know if you are interested

  3. You know, I think I’d jump on this sub if there was just ONE more item each month. Nothing high value, maybe a snack or a sponsored item. I find it to surpringly always have items I’d definitely use (I’m really not a PSMH fan) and although I get that $34 for $19 is still a good deal, I think being the brand they are they could step it up one more notch and get more subscribers.

    • I agree. 2 items just does not excite me.

    • Yes, aesthetically, odd numbers … almost with everything.. is more pleasing to the eye and senses. e.g., Landscaping…plant 3, not 2. Ipsy bags have 5 items A third item in the box will complete it. And, as you said, it doesn’t have to be high value.

    • And three feels like less of a risk. With two items, if one item doesn’t work for you for whatever reason, then you might feel a little shorted or disappointed because that’s half the box. With three items, you’d still feel OK because it’s two out of three.

      I’ve loved all three mini boxes so far (item for item, more than I have liked the full-size box — which I just resubbed to) but I haven’t jumped on this subscription yet and I think that’s the reason why.

  4. I think I’m more excited for this one than the past 2… it’s not the most exciting items, but I’ll definitely use both. I’m really happy with the lip color, most colors that come in boxes are way too bold or dark for me so this one looks like it’ll be perfect, for me anyways.
    And of course I will use the bag, it’s Baggu after all! Might even have to order or swap for another bc I think it’ll be perfect for my son and me on our upcoming trip!

    • Agree – not the most exciting items, but so useful! I hope you love the lip cream as much as I do! 🙂

  5. I love bags and this one from Baggu is nice. The lipstick color was not flattering on my dark skin tone. I wish Popsugar would make their makeup items more universal to all their customers. I have voiced my opinion numerous times. The lipstick is moisturizing. All in all I’m still their biggest fan.

  6. love that shade of lipstick!!

  7. I love the lipstick!! The color is just perfect for me. Although the Baggu bag isn’t exciting it is super useful so I’m happy with it.
