POPSUGAR's October Must Have Box

*press sample*


Good afternoon!

I had the chance to try out another Must Have Box from POPSUGAR, this time for the month of October. I can't believe October is already over! 

I must say, every box has been better than the last! I particularly liked this one because it had a generous amount of beauty/fashion items.

So the first item I got was a bracelet from Gorjana. This is a cute bracelet that is perfect to layer with other pieces. Also, 100% of the sales of this bracelet for the month of October went towards breast cancer.


The Wet Brush is the next item I received. I was overdue for a new brush, so this was perfect timing! ;) I love knowing that this brush was made specifically to reduce tugging and pulling of the hair. I have even tried it on wet hair, which is typically a no-no, and it glided through really nicely.


Another beauty item, a polish duo from Julep. I had yet to try anything from Julep just because nothing wowed me about the brand. While the blue shade, Char, isn't anything I haven't seen before, I loved the Freedom Polymer top coat. It dries super fast, which is a must for me with 2 kids and limited time to squeeze in a mani.

Next up are a couple of items from NYX. I have been a fan of the NYX brand for a while now, so I was super excited to find these in my box.

First up is a liquid eyeliner in brown. I don't typically wear brown eyeliner but this shade was dark enough to just soften my overall eye look as opposed to wearing black.


The other NYX item was the Smokey Shadow palette. I have a serious weakness for eyeshadow palettes. I own more eyeshadow than any other makeup item, besides nail polish of course! This fits nicely into my collection. Although these aren't the most buttery shadows out there, I can still work with them to create a nice smokey eye. I like having all the shades I need in one spot too.



 Also included in this month's box was a $20 voucher to Stitch Fix. It sounds like a subscription box for clothes only you get to return what you don't want. But if you decide to keep everything you get a discount! Sneaky!


These hair pins from Jane Tran seem like a cuter alternative to bobby pins if you are doing a hairstyle where pins are more visible. They grip really well in my hair.


Just like every other Must Have box I have gotten, there is a food item! This time, a rice crispy treat from The Crispery. And not just any rice crispy treat, this thing is on marshmallow overload and that's a GOOD thing! I loved this, and it was huge!


And finally, Jessica Seinfeld's new cookbook. Written specifically for those who can't cook, AKA me. Actually, I can cook, I just really don't like it very much so I don't do it. But this book is actually quite motivating and the recipes are the least bit intimidating to try and conquer. I will definitely be referring to this often!


Wow! What an awesome box for October! Well beyond the $35/month price.
