HUCK + LIZ August 2018 Review

Here is the info sheet for the products included.

“Love” Necklace - Listed Value $59

This necklace is 14K gold-filled and says “love” through four dangling letters. I am not one to wear jewelry that says things like this, but I actually quite like this necklace. It is that perfect length where I can fasten the necklace by myself and it hits perfectly above the normal neckline of the clothes I wear.

Butter London Nail Polish in Blaze, 0.2 oz

Butter London Nail Polish in Blaze, 0.2 oz – Retail Value $10

I love Butter London! I don’t normally like receiving mini nail polishes in subscription boxes, but Butter London is an exception—just look how chic the packaging is! Blaze is a limited edition sheer peach shimmer that I think is a perfect summer manicure color. 

Soap & Glory Orangeasm Body Butter, 1.69 oz

Soap & Glory Orangeasm Body Butter, 1.69 oz – Listed Value $8

This ultra-moisturizing body butter is scented with Sicilian lemon, mandarin, and sweet orange oils – a.k.a this smells AMAZING. I absolutely love citrus scents, and this also features small shea butter massage bar that burst when rubbing the lotion into your skin. I think this is a discontinued scent as I can’t find it from a reputable shop online, but I will enjoy using it while it lasts.

Bath Bomb – Listed Value $4

I love bath bombs and consider myself to be a bath bomb connoisseur. This one fell a little flat for me—it is unbranded with no description whatsoever, so I question if this belongs in the "luxury" beauty category. I also think it was unscented? There was no scent when I opened up the plastic and held it about an inch from my nose. This did change my water to be light orange, but overall I wasn't impressed.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Lip Gloss in Pure Peach, Full-Size! Retail Value $19, Listed Value $20

Oh, hello there beautiful! I have been eyeing the Too Faced Sweet Peach line ever since it was released, but this is my first product from the line to call my own. This is very moisturizing and comfortable to wear, and the pinky peach shade can be lightly applied for a very sheer wash of color or built up a bit for more color. This has all the markings of being an authentic product (coming in a box, stamped with a batch code on both the box and the tube), but part of the label was misaligned when applied so there is a slight tilt to it. I don't think this is a counterfeit product—rather I believe it was probably sold at a discount to retailers due to the label mishap. I am fine with having a slightly tilted label if that is what it took to own this lip gloss because it is a gorgeous lip gloss with minimal tackiness and a yummy peach scent.

Here is the lip gloss swatched twice to show the color payoff. If you want a more sheer look, just use one coat!

Bonus! Body Prescription Makeup Removing Wipes

I am always happy to see makeup removing wipes in subscription boxes because they are practical and can always be used. I appreciate that these are individually wrapped, as this makes it perfect for travel. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the performance. This tugged at my eyes when I was trying to remove my mascara, and when I went over my face with a cotton pad and toner later a lot of foundation was left on my skin. These would perhaps be good in double cleanse if you're following with a good face wash after, but on their own, these won't remove everything.

The Verdict: The gold box from HUCK + LIZ promises a monthly box with a value over $100. I think this is why the Too Faced lip gloss was listed as having a value of $20 rather than the actual retail value of $19—without that extra dollar, the total value of this box is right at $100 using the retail values when I could find them and the listed values when I could not. Overall, however, I really did enjoy my first box from HUCK + LIZ. All of the items are good fits for me, and it is a fun box to combine beauty and jewelry items. The limit does not exist when it comes to makeup and skincare, and I am really trying to up my accessory game, so I am really looking forward to the September box!

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

For $50 you can subscribe to Margot Elena and truly receive luxury items

I like this box, it’s something I would sign up for, but the price is to high for what you get in my opinion.
If they lower the price to perhaps $29 with shipping included, I be in.

The subscription box market is flooded and it takes “A” game to market a 50 dollar box. This is more of a 20-25 dollar box by comparison to what’s out here. Zero thrills and frills. Easy pass

The body butter is travel size and the riteous butter in 1.69 oz is $4 on Ulta. Not on sale.

The bath bomb looks like one of those large sets that you can get on amazon that end up being less than a buck a piece. It’s uncomfortable when they don’t give you ingredients or a brand. It’s the equivalent of taking open candy from a stranger, I’m not that trusting with my body.

This is hardly a “luxury” box and nowhere close to a $50 price point. Just a bad review, period. I wouldn’t, in good conscience, be able to recommend this to anyone – even if it was free.

Hi All.
I do my best to be open and honest in all of my reviews. I think people who subscribe to a wide variety of boxes will have a far different opinion than those who are new to subscription boxes, and I try to walk that line between the two different audiences.
I hope this helps!

This explanation makes no sense to me at all. A bad box is a bad box – regardless how many boxes a new or “veteran” subscriber gets. If anything a newer subscriber needs a better, tighter review so they can recognize a true luxury box from a crap box. MSA is a branded, income-generating business that depends on people becoming paid subscribers to the boxes reviewed on this page. People come here for genuine guidance and this wasn’t it. Smh.

I just don’t see what the low value has to do with being new to boxes or subbing to several for a while, it seems like these are items we’d all expect to find at Ross, TJ Maxx or Marshall’s cheap and some of it seems Dollar storesque to me.

I think those of use who’ve voiced displeasure are talking about the fact that we would be paying $50 for this box. That’s a Margot Elena or Fabfitfun box. They’ve chosen to market this as luxurious and it doesn’t seem to fit.

I just don’t see value here at all in the items or the curation. I’d be iffy about a new box sending Too Faced items and verify with the company before applying to my lips.

I agree with you. Not necessarily a bad review so much as when you get a box for free and don’t actually have to work to pay for it everything seems to come off in a rosier hue than for you or I. I had the same problem reading the reviews for Robb Vices that were praising and happy when I knew if the person had to pay for the box they wouldn’t feel the same way about a skipping overpriced record player.

I couldn’t agree more, I’d be disappointed if I paid for this disaster of a box. Maybe that’s difference that even crappy is okay for free.

Just because you think it’s a bad box doesn’t mean that the review is also bad. People do not always agree. I myself would never buy a box at that price point if that was all there was in it but it’s not fair for you to call out the reviewer because she actually is one of the ones that I feel always tells it as she sees it and doesn’t hold back! She has been critical in many reviews so maybe you should not be so quick to judge.

I completely agree. I get the whole “If you can’t say anything nice” concept, but this is a site people come to hear the nice and not-so-nice of an honest review. I’ve noticed a trend lately of being too polite about terrible boxes. Instead of assuming the origin (discount store vs counterfeit), I would want someone to reach out to the box provider to verify. Granted, just looking at the contents vs. the price makes it clear to readers this is not a luxury box by any stretch of the imagination. But when that reality seems counter to the review, it’s disconcerting. I realize that bad reviews mean less boxes, but at some point, the box needs to be called out for what it is.

Having $50 to throw out is apparently the luxury.

I am not sure about this box. The fact that the most expensive item in the box has a listed value and not a retail value. I don’t see a brand name or anything. I seen some similar to this but the O’s have cubic zirconia diamonds in them and those prices range from $35-48 (the ones I seen). Actually on Etsy the $35 ones are going for 50% off right now. I’ll watch this one and see where it goes. I think if the most expensive item is usually the jewelry piece than that has to be an important factor for anyone that subs. I am more interested in beauty items than jewelry but don’t mind restocking my jewelry collection.

Those wipes are terrible. I picked up a bag of …25-30 I think? at Marshalls for 2.99, and I still felt like I paid too much. Even if they’re just a bonus item, they don’t belong in a $50 box.

Would make sense that those wipes are from Marshalls…. that body butter is from Marshalls as well. This is looking like another LunaBabe disaster waiting to happen.

This does not look worth $50. LunaBabe Box have stepped up their game. I got my first box last month and was highly impressed. Hopefully this box can have a turn around too!
