April Lust Have It Review

Kia Ora!

I received the April Lust Have It quite awhile ago, but life got a bit crazy, and I haven't had a chance to post this blog. So read on to see what was in it!

Lust Have It* is a monthly subscription, which costs $19.95 (AUD) plus shipping, and you get 5-6 products/samples. It ships to Australia and New Zealand, and is usually with you by the end of the month - although it often takes a little longer to reach New Zealand.

You can use coupon code IFORAYS1 for $10 off your first box! 

I love it when the bag has some interesting looking products in it! Let's see what was in it!

Full card details for those who want to see those. 

Appelles Apothecary & Lab Shampoo and Conditioner 35ml each
RRP: $6.58 

Blackseed Shampoo cleans and nourishes, gently removing excess oil and dead skin from the scalp and providing follicles with the necessary nutrients and hydration for strong, healthy hair. Tamanu Conditioner repairs and protects, shielding hair from UV and chemical damage by maintaining hair hydration, manageability and softness. 

I've tried these before from other subscription boxes, and love them! They are quite a herbal scent - rosemary being the primary scent - but I love that. They work quite well as a shampoo and conditioner, leaving hair soft and shiny. These are also a generous sample size, and I should get 2-3 uses from these! Yay!

Marsk Certified Organic Browliner
RRP: $28.95

Nothing is worse than bad eyebrows, which is why we designed the MARSK Certified Organic Brow Liners. Whether you're going for a stenciled look or a natural full arch, the MARSK Organic Brow Pencil will get you there smudge-free. 

I've been using this to do my brows every day for the last week, and it's amazing! I've struggled with the colour of brow pencils before - as despite claims of universal colour they are always too dark for my blonde brows. However this one is nearly perfect! It's a lighter blonde colour, and makes it so easy to do my brows! I'm a convert, and the creamy formula certainly helps!

Marsk Certified Organic Eyeliner
RRP: $28.95

Wear it all day and all night and they won't slip off the eye (don't you just hate it when that happens?). The added benefit with these wonderful liners is the delicious ingredients in them that have earned them an Organic certification. 

I don't wear eyeliner. Ever. So this product hasn't been touched. It looks nice, and swatches well (see below) but I just won't use it. I'm keeping it for a friend, but this one is a dud for me personally - although I know lots of people love eyeliners in their subscriptions.     

Personail Nail Polish Wraps
RRP: $18

Can't justify the dollars associated with professional manicures? Or - even worse - sick of at-home jobs that end with you looking like you let a toddler loose on your hands with a tin of paint? No drying time, no smell and - best of all - simple to apply! From the classic to the fantastic(ally) sparkly, there's a design here for every nail. 

These are similar to Jamberry, and are those stickers that look like nail polish. Half the fuss, and not too much of a mess. Honestly, I haven't tried these yet as I've been too busy to worry about my nails. I love the 'Glamour' design I received, and I love that there is a $10 off code - I'm not sure if it's a one-off code but give it a go and see if it will work for you!  

Manna Kadar Fantasy 3-in-1 Blush Highlighter Eyeshadow
RRP: $25

A pearlized powder blush, highlighter and eyeshadow. It has a special light and velvet-like texture which glides on smoothly and evenly to provide the perfect amount of colour for a healthy glow on your eyes, cheeks or desired areas for highlighting. 

Once again, not something I've used recently, but it swatches nicely - smooth and creamy. I will be using this over the next few months since I've just started a job where makeup is a bit more of a requirement. I like it as an eyeshadow, to add a bit of a pop to the inner corner.   

Swatches: MARSK eyeliner, MARSK browliner, Manna Kadar powder
Total value of the box: $107.48

Wow, talk about value for money. I'm going to use at least 3 of the products in this box, and will play with a couple more so I'm really happy to have received this one.

What do you think of this box? Do you get Lust Have It? If you don't, don't forget to use coupon code IFORAYS1 for $10 off your first box!

Until next time ...
