After a week delay in transit (thanks USPS...) I finally got my first So Choix box! I am beyond excited to get this and I cannot wait to try everything out!
What is a Choix box? Well, it's a makeup subscription box where you get to pick out your samples. Some people like the element of surprise, and I admit I'm one of them, but with every glossybox I've gotten I've been so underwhelmed by them that February will be my last month until I decide to resubscribe again. But I did find So Choix and they have high end brands you can pick from! Then, you get a $10 credit towards the purchase of one of your samples for this month! While there isn't a huge selection, it is nice but as of now I can't see myself keeping this subscription for an entire year. Without further ado, here it is!
The presentation is nice and sanitary even though they are taken from the full size products. Everything is labeled so you don't forget what you ordered and what you're using!
Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Skin Liquid Lighting Highlighter, $52.00. This is a liquid highlighter and is beautiful!
Kevyn Aucoin Lip Gloss in Cloudaine, $30.00, a sheer lipgloss.
Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer in Beige, $70.00, a full coverage concealer.
Chanel Base Lumiere Illuminating Makeup Base, $45.00, an illuminating primer.
Guerlain Rouge Autoamtique Hydrating 160 in Bal de Mai, $36.00, a beautiful pinky nude lisptick.
When you open the box everything is glued down with a sticky round thing so they don't move around in transit which is really nice. Everything is individually wrapped and has a plastic seal on it. I really like the lip gloss container a lot. As a welcome gift, I also got a few travel sized makeup brushes. While this was a nice gesture, I'll probably only use one or two of them.
Overall, I think this is a great way to try things out. You can ask for samples at Sephora so I was trying to avoid anything I could sample there. Plus with Sephora's great return policy, you almost don't even need to ask for samples there. I was looking at So Choix's website today and they have a good selection of items though it is limited and it is quite expensive for 5 samples. Click
