Siiiigh. I love Beyond the Rack. I reallllly want the first dress & purse and shoes. They’re my favourite items of the 6 above. I’ve been a member of it for a few years now. It’s an online store with heavily discounted items. (60-80%) lot of the the stuff is designer. It’s invitation only, & I thought I would share this lovely site with you folks!

July 15th, 2011 | Luxe Box June Review

Hey everyone! So the month is up, so its time for my review of my first Luxe Box from Loose Button!

I *love* the packaging. It’s so cute & it really made me happy to see them put time into packaging the items so nicely. It just warmed my little heart & made me fall inlove with the whole program! (Yup, that’s the design nerd poking out)

Please excuse my super chipped nail polish ;)

China Glaze Ink nail polish (retail $7), Laura Mercier eye shadow (retail $22), and Dermalogica daily microfoliant (retail $72).

Since it was their first one, we also received a really tasty chocolate (which I used to make a s’moore ;D). It’s not in the photo because well, it was in my belly.

China Glaze Nail Polish: I love this! I received it in black. It has a fine tip so its great for detailed work & designs. It makes doing designs SO much easier (no more toothpicks!) I’m totally going to be buying this in more colours.

Laura Mercier Eyeshadow: I also loved this product. I received it in a really pretty pale nude colour that has a bit of a shimmer too it. It feels really lightweight & nice when its on. It’s great as a highlighter, and it also layers nicely well also so you can get full coverage to be used as a shadow. I’m determined to find more products by them, I was really impressed with the quality.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: At first, I loved this product. It made my skin feel great after use. I could really feel it getting into the pores and cleaning them out. However, after a few days of use I started to break out  so I stopped using this product. I may test it out again, but I wasn’t too impressed. I have really sensitive skin so I feel like this product just might have not been for me. I’ll probably give it to a friend who has less sensitive skin.

So far I love the program, I received my July box today and am super excited about all the products in it. I am definitely going to be signing up again in September when my current subscription runs out. Its really fun & exciting to look forward to a package every month of exciting new products.
