This was a one time purchase box for popsugar must have and is limited edition. 

First look inside the box.

Each item came individually wrapped in tissue paper.

Everything in the box.

BUJI BAJA - With Love From Eurostar. Lavender Rib Scarf. The retail value is $70.00. This is of course perfect for fall. The color is such a pretty soft lavender color.  Its very soft which is nice but honestly I wasn't so happy to see this in the box since I already have so many scarves.

CAEDEN. Linea N1 Faceted Ceramic & Rose Gold Headphones. The retail value is $149.99. These are really nice and I don't have any headphones like them but it would have been nice if they were wireless.

 JACK & LUCY. Faux Fur Pom Keychain. The retail value is $41.00. I know that pom pom's are in but I feel like this item is just a little overpriced. I do like the the color of this keychain though. Perfect for fall.

THRIVE CAUSEMETICS. Triple Threat Color Stick in "Joy". The retail value is $36.00. I haven't been able to try this out yet but it does say on the information card that this stick brings out intense color for your cheeks and lips. This looks like a great product. I love how its both for your cheeks and your lips also. 

LANCER SKINCARE. Dani Glowing Skin Perfector. The retail value is 95.00. Again this is another product that I have not been able to try out, but its supposed to enhance your skin's natural radiance, blur pore visibility, and boost your skin's firmness. 

SLOANE STATIONERY. Great Thoughts Notepad. The retail value is $52.00. This notepad is a little on the pricy side but it is produced using the traditional craft of bookbinding.

Popsugar Must Have is a monthly lifestyle subscription box for women. Each month they send out products from beauty, fitness, food etc... The cost of the box is $39.95 per month.

First look inside the box. 

All the products in the box.

JACK & LUCY: Bicoastal Wide Brim Hat. Suggested Retail is $58.00. I'm not so sure about this hat. Some people like hats and then some do not. I'm one that doesn't really like hats but I guess I have to try it out and see how I feel about it. On the information card it says to pair this hat with oversize sunglasses.

The hat is also adjustable which is pretty cool I think. It has two strings on the inside of the hat as you can see below, so all you have to do is pull the strings and adjust the hat to the size you need.

THE GLUTEN FREE BITES: Dark Chocolate Coconut Bites. Suggested Retail is $4.99. These bites are vegan and gluten-free. They are made without GMOs or dairy. I thought these were just ok. Not anything I would purchase if I saw them in the store. My husband also tried them and he didn't like them at all.

BRIOGEO: Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. Suggested Retail is $36.00. This hair mask is supposed to reduce breakage and restore natural vibrancy on even the most overprocessed hair.

FLINT: Lint Roller. Suggested Retail is $9.99. I was happy to see this in the box. I've never seen a lint roller like this one. It's pretty cool. I love the style of this one. It comes with 30 sheets but once you finish it you can refill it. This is a great product just to have in your bag or to keep in the car.

NCLA: MANI-ER Tool Kit. Suggested Retail is $16.00. This is another product that I am happy to see in the box. Its a mini manicure set. And again you can put this one in your bag also if you want.

Thats the inside and everything that came inside.

SMITH & CULT: Lip Lacquer in The Warning. Suggested Retail is $22.00. This is a pretty red color but not for me, so I'm sure I will give this away. I'm not sure if the top of this lip lacquer is supposed to have a dent of some sort or not, but mine has a dent and i'm not really sure how it even has a dent because the box was in perfect condition that's why I'm not sure if its supposed to be like that or not.

Overall this was a pretty good box. Not the best popsugar must have box that I have received in the past but its ok. I will use most of the items so thats fine.

The card that comes inside the box.

Everything in the box.

MILK MAKEUP: Lip + Cheek -Perk. On the card it says that this lip and cheek stick with Milk Melt Technology melts on contact with body heat for sheer, buildable, fuss-free color. This was very nice how it went on and I love the color it left on my skin.

LOC: Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil - Purple Reign. I am not really into this color at all. I don't see myself using it, so I did not want to try it on because I'm pretty sure I will be giving this away.

BEAUTIFUL NUTRITION: Lemon Rinse. This lemon rinse is supposed to go a step beyond your traditional shampoo with active lemon extracts that get red of product residue without stripping your hair of moisture. 

UNWASH: Bio-Cleansing Conditioner. This conditioner hydrates and reduces frizz, it removes dirt, oil, and product buildup. This one also doesn't strip down your hair.

 ORIBE: Cote d'Azur replenishing body wash & Restorative Body Creme. Some people don't like that they put these kind of samples packets in the boxes but I do like them. These are great for the

Overall: I am very happy with my box this month. I love that I received 6 samples this month in the box.

Box of Style is not a monthly box but is a seasonal subscription box by Rachel Zoe. Each box will have at least a value of $300.00 or more. The box will include fashion, beauty and also lifestyle items. The cost of each box is $100.00.

A note from Rachel Zoe:
"Fall is MY FAVORITE SEASON! It's the time of year to start thinking about COZY coats, cold-weather accessories and REFRESHING your wardrobe. Classic color combinations and luxurious materials make looking FASHION-FORWARD completely effortless, particularly with this selection of head-to-toe essentials. This season's box is filled with my and my team's NEWEST STYLE CRUSHES, so I hope you love them as much as I do!"

First look inside the box. 

Each item comes wrapped up in tissue paper.

HERO ITEM: THE COLORBLOCK. This is the Donni Charm Wonder Cape. Retail Value: $197.00. Guys this is super soft. I like the color combo on this. Its such a great piece for fall. You could use this a few different ways. Im sure I will use this so much this fall. Love this piece.

You should also be able to use it as a scarf if you wanted to.

Look at the little charm attached to the label. So cute.

THE CINCH: This is the B-Low The Belt Gatsby Wrap Belt. Retail value $105.00. If you want to you are able to double wrap this belt. This looks really nice with the cape.

THE STYLING TOOL: Hollywood Fashion Secrets Lint Removing Sheets. Retail Value:$6.00. This came with two packets of the lint removing sheets. I love that they included this in the box. I know for sure I will use these all the time.

THE EYE-CATCHER: Rachel Zoe Tassel Bracelet. Retail Value:$95.00. I love this. I know a lot of people are not into the tassel trend but I love it. Once again a piece I will use a lot this season.

THE STATEMENT-MAKER. It Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. Retail Value: $24.00. So they accidentally put two of these in my box. I guess I will be gifting one of them.

There is supposed to be one more item in my box but it was missing. I did not receive THE PERFECT POUT. It Cosmetics Vitality Lib Blush Hydrating gloss stain. I did e-mail them to let them know so lets see what they say when they get back to me. I hope they do get back to me. 

Overall: This was a great box except for the missing item that I did not receive. The box has a retail value of $403.00, I did the retail value minus the item that I am missing.
