The Goods
Too Faced Brow Envy
This Too Faced Brow Kit was this months spoiler.  I have almost purchased it so many times so I looked forward to receiving it all month!  The palette contains 2 brow powders in different colors that you can combine to get the perfect custom shade, a brow wax, an under brow highlighter, brow spoolie, angled brow brush, 3 different brow stencils and tweezers (these are the best tweezers I have ever owned, they kind of scoop up several hairs at once so you can get the job done quickly!)  Most days I stick to my Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil b/c I am quick with it but I recently ventured in to the world of the dip brow pomade which I really do love and get gorgeous results with so: I decided I could be versatile with my brows after all!  I love having all of these products together in one adorable compact palette and find that if I mix the powder and wax together its similar to using dip brow and works really well for me.  The highlighter is great as are all of the little tools.  I’ll likely not use the stencils, I’ve tried them in the past and it’s too hard to fit them to the curve of my face and keep them in place.  I love this palette though and am so glad that I finally have it.  I started buying too faced palettes many, many years ago when they were still laminate cardboard palettes that flipped open. (I think I had them all)  I am now on a too faced palette kick again.  (They are all just so cute!)
This product is a softening conditioning cuticle oil that claims to strengthen and moisturize your nails with just one drop. I’m a fan of NCLA’s Polishes and wraps so I was pleased to try another product from their line.  First of all this product smells absolutely delightful.  It’s a bit odd to constantly sniff your own fingertips but I can’t seem to stop!  One little drop is plenty for each nail and cuticle area and it is a bit more thick than other cuticle oils that I have used. (less messy) Because everything on my body seems to be overly dry here in this California Draught, I have been using this product as well as Julep’s: your cuticles look thirsty daily and they are looking much better now.  Did I mention how fantastic it smells?
Kris Nations
These handmade in California (Half Moon Bay) ‘XO’ mini stud earrings are cut from recycled brass and plated with 14K Gold with sterling silver posts.  I love these little studs so much (I am wearing both of them in one ear as we speak)  I adore dainty charm necklaces and cute little studs and the packaging on this set is just too cute!  After checking out the Kris Nations site I know I will be purchasing many additional items from the brand.  I love how Popsugar is local to me (Bay Area, CA) and feature so many cool [new and established] brands that are as well!
This leave in boasts a plethora of benefits and is cruelty-free, 95 percent naturally-derived, vegan-friendly and formulated WITHOUT parabens, phthalates, silicone, gluten, synthetic fragrances or dyes.  It claims to deliver intense hydration and nutrients while enhancing hair’s strength and can also be used as a heat protectant prior to styling.  The product is a milky like leave-in conditioning treatment with Rosehip, Argan and Coconut oils.  I love a good leave in with Argan oil in it and conditioning properties for my long, dry, wavy; ever tangling hair.  I’ve used other products from Briogeo that I have liked and I like this one as well.  It softened and smoothed out my hair without being heavy or weighing it down at all.  It smells a bit tropical but in a lighter not overpowering way.  I received this product on the same day as I received my Tangle Teezer brush in a different sub box and it just felt meant to be!
Hudson and Bleecker
Hudson+Bleecker Labyrinth Onyx Travel Trio: $42.00 (could not find this product on their site)
This is a printed travel trio that contains a TSA-friendly, clear toiletry pouch and two good sized printed draw string bags meant to house both shoes and intimates.  I’m excited about this set and plan to use it on a trip this weekend.  I love having a separate spot for my intimates that oft get buried among my other items and I am always trying to figure out how to separate my shoes (with dirty soles) from my clothing, especially when on a weekend trip and toting only a carry on or small suitcase.  I travel enough to where items like this really make my travel organization better and easier.  I’m thrilled that on Friday I get to pack with this as well as my expandable dopp kit and fancy travel toothbrush from my July box! I know, I get overly excited about these things but I love having separate products for travel only and I just love organization!!!  I loathe getting to my destination and having to pilfer through a messy suitcase!  I feel like I now have everything I need for a great system.
Nourish Snacks
Almonds and dried Cherries, protein and fiber; enough said. 🙂  Almonds are my go to snack.  I’ve found some new snacks through Popsugar (can you say Pipcorn, yummo) so I enjoy getting some sort of snack/food item each month in addition to all of the other goodies.
Verdict:  This was a really good box for me as I will use most products often, even daily and the travel set frequently enough.  It had a great mix of fashion, cosmetics, skin/nail and haircare a travel item, a snack…I really enjoyed this one!  I do hope to get a nice home item in my next box though!
Value: The total value of all items in this box came to: 156.00, very nice!  My box also included 2 uniquely coded ‘$10.00 off your first must have box’ gift cards to give away.  If anyone is interested in signing up and will do so through my link I will give them away! Just message me below!

      Thanks! I really loved it as well. I have and will continue to use everything in it! I love that!! I also love that we are nearing the Holidays again. I feel like I always really love the boxes that lead up to the Holidays and always look forward to SE Holiday boxes, especially PSMH’s!
