A Review for March 2014
So my Violet Box arrived on the last day of March. So it still counts as a March box, ha! I'm not too sure if this month has a theme they usually do but I cant seem to pick it, that doesn't mean that there isn't some amazing things in the box though.
So these Love those Lashes New Silk Strip Lashes are an item that I'm happy to receive. I don't usually wear lashes, I don't have time and it's not really my style, but I have a couple of parties to go to very soon and I really want to try these out. I'm a bit nervous because I have never applied fake lashes in my life. But the good news is that this particular brand can be reused up to 15 times so it doesn't matter if I stuff it up the first 14 times.I will also be cutting these to shape because I would not want them poking my eyes every time I blink! ( Silk Strip Lashes is made from man made synthetics and are animal cruelty free.)
Sinful Colours is one of those inexpensive go-to nail polish racks when there is a last minute manicure in order. I don't generally think they are the best quality nail varnish out there but they do have a whole bunch of very good colours. I received the Gogo Girl 852 which is a really bright red. This is a pretty colour that I think is perfect for Winter because I tend to head for reds and berries on my nails. Its always nice to wear something bright and fun when there are grey clouds in the sky.
The Starlooks Gem Pencil is so pretty. Violet Box was giving away the Topaz or Amethyst, I am so glad I received the Amethyst because I love purple. It is a beautiful bright Lavender colour with tiny bits of glitter in it. I just love the colour and the feel of this pencil, it is very easy to apply and it can be blended so that the colour turns into just a light shimmer over the eyelid, Its so versatile.

I am very interested in trying this Day & Night Fortifying Serum from Acorelle. I haven't actually heard a lot about Acorelle until I was perusing on Violet Boxes website to see what brands they stocked. 98% of these ingredients are of natural origin and 27% of the total ingredients are from organic farming. This anti-oxidant serum comes in a creamy formulation but is easily spreadable, it dried very quickly and left only a slight tackiness. (Acorelle is animal cruelty free )
I have heard about Mirenesse on many Youtube channels and also previous subscription box reviews, I was curious to see what all the fuss was about. Excitement set in when I received the Mirenesse Velvet lip Lift Moisture Shine Gloss. This is a plumping , self-renewing and long term anti-ageing lip treatment. I really like the nude colour of this because it looks very natural, a lot of the time I find 'nude' colours are still way too dark for me but this gloss is just right. I expected to feel a lot of tingling on my lips as the plumping effect took place but I felt nothing and I didn't really see major plumped pout when I had this on either. But that's OK because I'm in love with the colour. Two thumbs up from me. (Mirenesse is a animal cruelty free company)
We also received a $25 Beauty Voucher from Mirenesse and a free Instant Lash Transplant voucher.
So that's everything in my box for this month. I was totally impressed with the amount of full sized products and also they are very good quality. Violet Box also has an online store so you can buy some of your favourite things that have come in the boxes full size, over and over again.
Did you get anything different in your Violet Box?
Violet Box was sent to me for consideration, however my opinions are 100% genuine and honest.
