POPSUGAR Must Have Box August 2014

I was offered to experience POPSUGAR Must Have Box, which is a subscription box that has a little bit of everything - full sized beauty, fashion, and lifestyle items.
Here are what I received in the August box. (This post is picture heavy.)

Kendra Scott Elisa Necklace in Black Cat's Eye 
(Sugg. Retail: $50 |
This necklace is set with a delicate light gold chain that is perfect for everyday wear. It is also adjustable.

The pendant has this interesting inner glow like a cat's eye (hence the name).

The back is adorned with great details as well, which makes this necklace reversible. 

It came in a silky light blue pouch in which now I carry my phone charger and earphones.
The 20% off code was included as well.

Paddywax Ocean Tide + Sea Salt Mini Jar Candle
(Sugg. Retail: $10 |
The particular fragrance is very clean and refreshing. It is not overly oceanic and it does not cause any headache for me. 
Good quality candle.

Goodbyn Purple Meal and Dipper Set
(Sugg. Retail: $8 |
This meal container was a cute surprise that made me smile.
I really like the clean and functional design of this. 
Since I don't really pack my lunch with me, I'd give this to my niece or keep fragrance samples in this.

The Mason Jar Cookie Company Celebrate!
(Sugg. Retail: $12 |
I've never baked anything in my life but I might just try this one.
(I think the boys want me to.)
Love the packaging, by the way.

Lollia At Last Perfumed Shower Gel
(Sugg. Retail: $22 |
This is my favorite!
The shower gel smells absolutely delicious and is very gentle on skin.
I believe "At Last No.17" is a new scent from Lollia. It is very comforting and sexy that layers well with my other fragrances. I've been using this daily ever since.

Bite Beauty Lush Fruit Lip
(Sugg. Retail: $22 |
Another favorite of mine.
This food grade lipgloss is thick and glossy but surprisingly not so tacky.
It tastes naturally sweet!

The color is "Popsugar"(I wonder if Bite Beauty specially created the color?).
It is a sheer blue based pink that brightens my complexion instantly.

Plus, there was a special extra from Think Thin.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of this and only realized it after I ate it. ;o
It was a Brownie Crunch High Protein Bar!

Some of you know that I have never been enthusiastic about subscription boxes.
Turns out I'm less of a control freak when it comes to non-beauty items, which is a nice revelation to me.  Plus it helps when I actually adore the two beauty items included in the box. 
I must say it is not a cheap subscription service at $39.99 a month, but a great deal since the box is packed with goodies worth $124 + and ships free.

For those who are interested, POPSUGAR has offered a code $10 off on a 3-month subscription.
The discount code (AUG14SELECT) is valid until 9/10/2014.

Have you tried POPSUGAR Must Have Box?
What do you think about subscription box that offers a little bit of everything?

POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.

Join the conversation!

  1. Ever since I saw the POpSugar box with the Too Faced eyeshadow palette, I've always wanted in! It seems that they always have some really good value box + the dollar off promotion is a great incentive to get into it!

    1. I agree. I thought it was an excellent mix of the well-known brands and the up-and-comings. I didn't know they had included Too Faced palette before! That's awesome.
      I checked out the website and their special edition fashion box has been sold out, which intrigues me even more. ;)

  2. I've never tried this box subscription but it's nice how it's not limited to one type of product. I think I like the anticipation of receiving a subscription box more than the actual contents of the box itself most of the time :)

    Rowena @ rolala loves

    1. I guess I was a bit weary about getting bunch of beauty items that are not so great in quality, or spending substantial amount of money on random beauty box. I was surprised that I didn't mind getting other things like the container and the candle. The main items (for my anyway) already are worth more than the subscription fee, so it is kind of like getting other stuff as extras. ;)

  3. The bite beauty gloss is so pretty. Cant waite to see it on you !

    1. It is! I will show it in another post soon. Thanks! :)

  4. Am I weird for wanting the meal & dipping set?

    1. Haha, not weird at all! ;D
      I was pleasantly surprised by it. The dipping container is so small and cute. >,.<

  5. The only box I've ever gotten was the one with Too Face shadow palette in it. Ever since then, I've been itching to get it every month! But I still haven't pulled the trigger because it is such an "expensive" box in comparison to other monthly subscriptions. :( Maybe when I'm no longer on a student salary! ^_^

    1. I think it is best to either subscribe for a short period or lurk other blogs to see what is in each month! LOL
      I just found out there are tons of bloggers who mainly blog about these boxes. I was surprised, to be honest!
      I've tried the more affordable ones, but I think this or other higher-end boxes are definitely better deal overall. :)

  6. The gloss is gorgeous. Bite sure knows how to do lip products. Forever tempting me XD

    1. I've been curious about the brand, too. It was great to try one. I keep eating this off my lips but I guess it wouldn't harm me since it is food grade. Whew. ;p

  7. Lollia and Bite totally saved the box, otherwise I would have been angry and I'm not even a subscriber, lol!

    1. Yeah, they are my favorites, too. I kinda like other things like the necklace and (don't laugh) the container. LOL. I wish I received the earrings instead, though. They look pretty from other blogger's pics and I'm more into them than necklaces anyway. Can't really complain, though. ;p

  8. I like the necklace you got with this one and the cookies look fun, too!

    1. I am more into earrings in general (especially into drop earrings;) so I kind of hoped for them, but this necklace is quite pretty, too!
      But I still have to work up my courage and bake cookies for the first time in my life. ;p
