But then it arrived.
And it was pretty good. Or at least slightly above okay. When I saw the products, I wasn't immediately impressed, but after attempting to use some of them, I'm definitely not hating my box.
This month, I received:
2. Lait-Creme Concentre - 24-Hour Miracle Cream by Embryolisse. I really liked this product. It's part moisturizer, part primer, both of which I'm needing. I am not married to a brand of primer yet, as I'm still working my way through various samples (Laura Mercier, Victoria's Secret, Bare Escentuals), but I really liked this. It made my foundation go on smoothly, and it didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or goopy. It's also only $16 for the full-sized product, so this may end up being my primer of choice when all my samples are gone. I was impressed.
3. Skinny Liquid Eyeliner by Eyeko. I had gotten an Eyeko fat stick in a previous month's box that I didn't love, but I really liked this eyeliner. I typically stay away from liquid eyeliner because it intimidates me, but this gave me a really thin, crisp line on my lashes. It was perfect for creating a winged eyeliner look (not something I usually do but fun anyway), and I'll like using it. Will I buy it? Not sure. I do love my Stila regular eyeliners.
4. rare blend oil Total Hair Therapy by Ojon. This is a tricolored hair oil that's supposed to prevent heat damage and give you some shine. I tried it and didn't hate it, but I'm also unlikely to buy it. This was a mediocre sample for me, especially because I rarely apply heat to my hair.
