July 2014 Sample Society Review


There’s still the mini-mag. I love the magazine style information cards.IMG_5849

But it now features the products in the box. This is great. I wasn’t happy with the  loss of the information card the other month.IMG_5850

This is a great looking box! So exciting to dig in. And that polish! You guys know I love rose gold!IMG_5856

Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris Aqua Universalis Eau de Toilette ($2) This smells pretty good on me.  Both musky and citrusy! It’s unisex so I’m going to try it on my man, too. He loves cologne! IMG_5852

Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlighter 01 ($8) I am honestly not sure how a matte illuminator has shimmer. Sometimes I don’t get beauty products! But it’s very subtle. And obviously you need shimmer to illuminate!IMG_5851

Fekkai PrX Reparatives Intense Fortifying Masque ($8) Smells like vanilla pudding! Can’t wait to try this hair mask.IMG_5857

L’Oréal Paris Extraordinaire by Colour Riche Liquid Lipcolor ($9) A variety of colors for this liquid lipstick were sent out, mine is pretty red/bold! It’s Coral Encore.IMG_5858

Butter London Nail Lacquer in Champers ($15) My fave item in the box! It’s a gorgeous rose gold color, which has been my go-to metallic for the past year.

The total of my July Sample Society box was around $45. I loved that I got a mix of items instead of just skincare (although skincare is my fave I like to mix it up).  The items were really either deluxe or full size and I thought it was a great value.

    I received the nail polish in The Old Bill. A pretty bronze metallic that I do not currently own. My lippie was a different shade as well…Ruby Opera. I wore it yesterday and Hubby even commented approvingly of it. I really like the formula and most of all the way it left an even stain as it wore off. I was disappointed that the Laura Mercier product was missing from my box but customer service was excellent about resolving that. I was mighty impressed and relieved as well.

      the only issue i’ve ever had with them was not-full samples. which happens sometimes but mostly with beauty bar for some reason! but they are always great about resolving things!!

    Love this box! I emailed them earlier today to find out if this box is still available and, sadly, it’s not. Hoping they have a great box in Aug and then maybe I’ll be ready to pull the trigger on a subscription!
