What’s Inside my August 2011 LUXE BOX by Loose Button?

You may remember I wasn’t too wowed by my first (July 2011) LUXE BOX. Well my feelings have not changed with the arrival of the August 2011 instalment.

While it’s nice they sent me the Pur Minerals in shade light to match my skin tone as specified in my profile, I had also NOT selected foundation when filling out what types of samples I would like to receive in my box. I love trying out new foundations but since most brands don’t carry a shade of foundation fair enough for me I figured there wasn’t much point receiving samples knowing chances are there would never be a match. I have yet to test out the Pur Minerals powder but judging by how it looks in the compact it does indeed appear to be too dark.

I thought the handmade earrings were a really nice touch but unfortunately I can only wear gold earrings or my ears go crazy itchy and inflamed.

A good hand and body lotion is always nice to have but also not terribly exciting. This seems like a lovely formula though so we’ll see.

I haven’t tried the lip plumper out so I can’t say how it works but I will update on that at a later date. I haven’t really tried any lip plumpers and it’s not something I would generally spend my money on so it may be a nice way to try one out. It is quite teeny though.

Another perfume sample was included this month. Thankfully it was a bit larger size.

So there you have it. The contents of my August LUXE BOX. A nice assortment but again nothing stand out to a jaded consumer like myself. A great way for someone getting into higher quality cosmetics to try out some new things though.

    Wow that’s super disappointing. It’s terrible we can’t have Birchbox in Canada – they are just so much better!

    The Pur Mineral foundation was in some of the July Birchboxes, looks like Pur have a lot of samples to get rid of? I thought the earrings were a nice touch, sorry you can’t wear them!
