PopSugar Must Have box for March – spring has arrived

PopSugar Must Have for March 2013

PopSugar Must Have for March 2013

It’s reveal time for PopSugar’s March Must Have box. The surprise is that I received it on March 9th which is way early for them. Each month PopSugar has a theme and this month the theme is SPRING. I can certainly use some spring in my life! According to PopSugar they are “sharing one of the hottest trends of the season, A Hollywood fashion savior, a new way to make your lashes pop, and the best way to wash some of your most beloved articles of clothing. We’re also featuring a nostalgic Spring treat and making sure your next wine party has some festive flair.”

The categories for this month are home, food, beauty and fashion.

The Laundress Speciality Soap is the most obvious product in this box. It’s quite large at 16 fl. oz. The product in my box is their Delicate Wash in the scent Lady.

It can be used for both hand washing and machine washing and is formulated to help save you money on dry cleaning bills. Different boxes might have received their Denim Wash or their Wool & Cashmere shampoo. This sells for $19 and is full size. It appears to be a great product though it is fragranced with amber, citrus and herbal notes. I think I’ll wash a sweater of my husband’s first to see how I tolerate the scent.

Heather Belle Signature Tassel Necklace comes in a black and gray striped gift box which makes it nice if it’s not your style. The golden necklace is about 35″ long and the tassel adds another 4 inches. It comes down almost to my waist. While I don’t see this on their website I’d estimate it to cost about $80 when compared to the prices of the other items they carry. I’m getting quite a collection of costume jewelry lately!

The cutest item in the box is the Corkatoo Corkscrew. It comes in its own plastic case and is a colorful double hinged opener. This particular corkscrew is not on the True Fabrications website although they have some nice ones there, just not as cute as the Corkatoo. I’m estimating this at $12 though it’s really just a guess. I think this would make a great gift if invited over for dinner or a party.

Buxom Sculpted Lash Mascara is the beauty item I first noticed. I’ve yet to try a Bare Escentuals mascara so I’m looking forward to using this. I’m on the last week or so of my current mascara so the timing is great.

It has an “S” shaped brush (their picture is clearer than mine) and is $19.00 at Sephora. I hope this works out for me and I can do a full review of it.

Another beauty product is in the box and I’m excited about this one. It’s a two pack of The New Black Nail Polish. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve had packages of The New Black in my hand to buy or in a beauty.com or sephora.com cart but never pushed the trigger. My particular set is called Pardon My French and the colors are great looking metallics. These are mini polishes and a two piece set (not this one) is $10. They are the company that I first noticed having sets for ombre nails. Pardon My French contains a silvery light denim and a light metallic green). On my nail wheel they applied like a dream and I can’t wait to wear these. They don’t normally sell sets of two unless you want one of the Glimmer Twin sets. A set of 5 sells for $22, a set of 3 for $14. The light blue in my set appears to be similar to one of the shades in Horizon which I’ve had my eye on for a while and the green as one in the Waves set.pops march polish2

For fashion they have two items; one is considered an extra. Hollywood Fashion Secrets Sweater Saver is a tool to remove pills from clothing. While it’s nice, if you’ve ever tried a Lilly brush, this doesn’t compare (review coming soon). This sells for $5.99 and is becoming easier to find lately. The other product from Hollywood Fashion Secrets is their Fashion Tape and this is a small assortment pack. This can be a lifesaver and it’s small enough to stick in a makeup bag. There are 4 pieces in the package. I’ve tried a lot of products from Hollywood Fashion Secrets and have been impressed with them all.

And a PopSugar MustHave box wouldn’t be complete without food. Now they didn’t get fancy this month. Instead they became nostalgic with PEEPS. 5 cute yellow chickies all ready to eat. This approximately $1 treat is best slightly stale in my opinion!!

Peeps!!!

As I’ve stated before the PopSugar Must Have boxes cost $35 a month which includes shipping but not tax. This particular box is worth about $149 in my estimation. With just the Buxom mascara, nail polish and Peeps I have basically what I paid but I also have a high end bottle of fabric shampoo, a nice looking trendy necklace, a sweater saver and the cutest corkscrew. All in all I’m happy with this and will continue this subscription. It’s fun!!
