My Fashion Crate ships all over the world and comes in three levels:

The Essential Box is $35 plus shipping and will be packed with 3-4 items including shirts, dresses, separates, shoes, jewelry, accessories or gift cards (Value up to $200). Newly added is the Accessories Box, which is $20 and has 2-3 items. I am reviewing The Premium Box!

Here’s a look at everything in my Premium Box! All of the items are brand new and still in their bags. My Fashion Crate has now added a wider variety of sizes to choose from. When you sign up you can choose from tops and dresses in sizes small to 3XL, bottoms in sizes small to 3XL, and you can enter your shoe size.

I received a product info card with details on all the items in both the Essential and Premium box and suggested retail price.

The back features the additional items that come in the Premium Box. There was also info on how to share your box on social media.

Spiral Matte Hair Tie Set ($10, find similar item here, 10 for $9.99) I have short hair so I cannot test this item but my older daughter seemed excited to see these in the box! They are simply coiled plastic and look like old school telephone cords.

Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch ($1.98) My younger daughter claimed these right away. I have tried them before and was amazed that they seemed to actually work to reduce the size of a blemish overnight.

Apply over a clean blemish and the patch will stick to it overnight. Remove the patch in the morning and hopefully the blemish will have gone down in size.

Pure + Lano Natural Skincare Lip Treatment ($20) Wow, what a pricey lip balm!

Most of the ingredients sound good, but I was disappointed to see parfum in there, I’m pretty sure my lips don’t need fragrance. Vegans should skip it since lanolin is derived from sheep wool.

The orb shape is too cute.

Yikes, I think I got old product. I stuck my finger in the balm and had to rub it around for a while before it would transfer to my finger. The scent was off, one of the oils was rancid. I couldn’t find a production date or “best by” date either. It was terribly sticky and gross. Into the trash.

Mirabella Chroma Eyeshadow ($50) The teaser this month was a full-sized shadow palette.

The ingredients and shades were listed on the back. This brand is cruelty-free but not vegan, notice that “carmine” is one of the ingredients (it’s derived from bugs!).

The case looks pretty good.

Here are the colors, most of which I would say are “vibrant”!

Here are the colors swatched on my arm. I wasn’t impressed by this palette and find it hard to believe that anyone would pay $50. The colors were patchy and a lot of product would come off when I applied my shadow brush (see how much came out in the color swatched second from last?). I had tons of fallout and no real color payoff from the ones I picked to do my eyes.

Sweet Wanderer Open Front Blazer ($50) I thought this blazer was cute and has sweet details, like bell sleeves. It is padded at the shoulders, lined on the inside, and the materials used are 100% polyester.

I think it adds a feminine touch to a classic clothing item.

The next two items are in the Premium Box only!!!

Coverstitched Olive Top ($38) also has feminine details, like the extra material on the outside of the sleeves. The materials used are 95% rayon and 5% spandex.

It was very form fitting.

Luminous Geometric Cosmetic Pouch ($28, find similar item here for $8.99) Well this is pretty cool, I love the way the bag changes colors depending upon the light!

The inside is lined with black fabric and there is a ribbon zipper pull.

I didn’t realize until later that you can pop out the bottom to make it sit up on its own. This is about 7″ long when popped out, and 5″ tall. It’s slightly bigger than an Ipsy bag.

There were some hits and misses with the March My Fashion Crate. Most of the items were of very nice quality and worked very well. The main disappointment was the lip balm, which was off. I think the values for some of the items, like the shadow palette, are exaggerated, but that’s nothing new in the world of subscription boxes. It gives this box a value of around $178.97 for the Premium Box, and around $131.98 for the Essential Box.
