Boudoir Prive - September Box . .

Afternoon All
So it's here . . . yep Boudoir Prive September box

After last month's introductory box, which left me sat on the fence (and my mum running off with the majority of products from my box), I have to say I am actually pleasantly surprised with this month's box; I actually like everything (well almost everything). 
As with the August box, it's the same baby/pretty pink box with its magnetic open/close catch at the front. Upon opening the box I was greeted to a little booklet, which like last month details what's in the box, along with coupons to give away to a friend for a half price box the following month (I will link the code at the end of this post).


And this is what September Boudoir Prive box contains . . . .


Inside Boudoir Prive September box are the following:
  • Skincare: Colbert MD - Nourish Eye Cream
  • Lifestyle: Zoya - Nail Polish 'Marina'
  • Makeup: Cargo Cosmetics - Boogie Nights Eye Pencil '01 Silver'
  • Bodycare: Tropic Skincare - Body Smooth
  • Fragrance: Agent Provocateur - L'Agent
  • Haircare: Macadamia - Hair repair
 . . .As you've probably noticed there are 2 extra sample items which have been included this month, and those are:
  • Mai Couture - Blot & Bronze = aimed at eliminating excess oil without disturbing makeup.
  • Zoya - 'Smoke & Mirrors' collection swatch kit and booklet

I have to say I wasn't expecting any of these little extras, but I do like them as it enables me to see what other shades are available in the zoya collection. As for the blot & bronze, I am slightly intrigued by it, although I don't know if I'll be rushing to try it so quick, but we shall see!

The following are swatches of the Zoya nail polish and Boogie nights eye pencil:

I have to say I am really pleased with this month's box (and my mum won't be running off with everything like last month), ok she can have the eye cream, but the contents this month isn't going anywhere! My only slight little grumble however is this month didn't contain a personal note like August month did, but it's no biggy. And although I have always wanted to try Zoya, I do like it, dries very quick, but I am not too keen on this shade (love all the other shades on the sample card, just not this one). All products in this box will get a thorough review at a later date.

So what do you think? Do you like September's box? Or are you not keen? Would love to know what you think.

  3. Lovely little box they give you the products in, I was wondering if they made a big effort with the packaging. The products seem really nice too, I would get one but the only thing that's stopping me is that I don't use loads of beauty products so they'd probably be wasted on me :-/.

I love the way you took the pictures and we are really glad that your mum didn't run off with the products this month! (maybe you should get her a subscription too so your both happy each month?.)
