Mariér Box “Summertime Fun” June 2018 Review
Here is the info sheet for the box.
Jaiden Madison Lip Gloss in Ladylike, Full-Size! Retail Value $20
This lip gloss was surprisingly impressive—it is not sticky AT ALL. After I applied it I kept rubbing my lips together waiting for the stickiness to set in, but it never did. This honestly feels the same on my lips as my tinted Kopari Lip Love, which is probably the best compliment I could give to a lip gloss. The color, Ladylike, is a really pretty sheer pink with gold shimmer. On my natural lips it looks like my regular lip color with hints of gold when the light hits, and I love it. You can see it swatched above the eyeshadow palette a few photos down.
Cargo Shanghai Nights Palette, Full-Size! Retail Value $34
I consider Cargo to be a pretty good brand, and I loved the bright packaging on the top of this palette—I was really excited to open it up and get to playing. I loved the fun and unique colors included in this palette—really I loved everything about this palette until I actually tried to use the eyeshadows. The pigment on these shadows is simply awful.
Here is the palette swatched below the lip gloss. If you can believe it, each color is two swipes. I was so disappointed in this—Cargo, what happened? I also couldn’t find this palette for sale from a reputable website—it is no longer on the Cargo website, and it is sold out from Nordstrom. That would leave me to believe this palette is a bit old, however that doesn’t really bother me as long as the product is brand new and in great condition when it gets to me. Based on other users reviews, this palette was lacking in pigmentation even when it was brand new.
Be Bath Escapes Body Mist in Toasted Vanilla Sugar, 8 oz – Retail Value $4.79
Guys, I am going to be honest—I didn’t know Kmart was still in business! They are, and they’re the main seller of this brand from what I could find online. This body spray was a pleasant surprise- the scent reminds me of brown sugar and baking cookies, and it smells exactly the same way I remember Bath and Bodyworks Warm Vanilla Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist to smell like, only at about $10 cheaper. I am all about cheaper dupes when they hold their own against their pricier counterpart, so way to go Be Bath Escapes!
Sea Berry Soapery White Chocolate Raspberry Body Butter, 3.5 oz – Retail Value $6
Mariér Box likes to feature artisan and custom made items along with well-known brands, and this body butter from Etsy shop Sea Berry Soapery fits that bill perfectly. This body butter is absolutely luscious, and it smells just like white chocolate raspberry. My nose is pretty sensitive to artificial scents, but to me, this smelled just like a white chocolate covered raspberry. I was also pleasantly surprised that the raspberry scent was noticeable and not overpowered by the white chocolate. This body butter was hydrating, sank in quickly, and didn’t leave my skin greasy. In short, this is a winner.
Bonus! Pineapple Tote Bag
How cute is this tote bag? I love the bright pineapple against the black and white stripes, and this is the perfect size for carrying my lunch to work or a book and some sunscreen to the pool. This probably won’t fit my beach towel, but I am okay with that. This goes perfectly with the Summertime Fun theme of this months box.
The Verdict: I enjoyed my first month (and second box, ever) from Mariér Box! I appreciated the mix of well-known brands like Cargo along with the handmade body butter, and the lip gloss and body mists were great finds as well. The biggest bummer about this box is the color payoff on the Cargo palette, but I hold Cargo responsible for that. Value-wise, Mariér Box promises a value of at least $40 and I calculated a value of $64.79, not including the bonus tote. I am happy with that value, and I look forward to the July box.
