What’s In My November 2013 Vellvette Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Sunday, 1st December 2013

Hello everyone!

My Vellvette bag usually arrives around the 26th. It came on the 30th this time!

Image

But this time, it was worth the wait! 😀

The bag is adorable! Its black and pink! These bags are so useful for travelling.

Image

The theme this month was Band Baaja Beauty due to the blooming wedding season!

Image

Here is what I got :

1. Votre Pore Shrink Toner

Image

I have oily skin so this product might be good. I am excited to try it. I must admit I get very lazy with toners but shrunken pores will be a lucrative result! :-P. Plus, it is a very generous size sample so I will be able to tell if I like it enough to purchase the full size.

 2. MUA Power Pout Color Intense Lip Tint And Balm – Irreplaceable

Image

Lip crayons are so popular right now! They’re really comfortable to wear and I am so happy with the color I got!

I didn’t get a card for this product.

Image

MUA is a UK based brand. So, it is really nice that we get to try these international brands through Vellvette.

I am sure it is cheaper in the UK but the MRP on this is Rs. 1050/- so you immediately recuperate the amount that you pay for the bag! 🙂

3. Clinique Even Better Foundation – 05 Neutral ( MF )

Image

I have heard so many good things about this foundation. I am so glad Vellvette sent me something from a relatively high end brand this time.

I am excited to try this foundation especially now that my skin is drier in winters. They didn’t just send one tiny sachet, there are 4! That is a very good sample size for a foundation considering each sachet will last me about 2 uses.

Image

Another wonderful thing is that Vellvette matched the foundation to my skin tone PERFECTLY. It is not a tinge darker or lighter! I am highly impressed!

4. Anna Andre Extreme Elegance Matte Foundation – 30000

Image

I had ordered this foundation off their website and received it separately. I am very glad I did because I loved it when I used it. It is a very natural looking foundation and has a beautiful semi matte finish! 😀

5. Mary Kay Pencils

Image

These are extremely tiny and single use samples.

Image

Top To Bottom :

Eyeliner in Black / Noir

Eyeliner in Steely / Metallise

Lip Liner in Soft Blush / Rose Doux

Even though they’re little single use samples, I can tell that they’re budge proof! I rubbed and rubbed my hand and these didn’t move. It makes me want to purchase the full size because it is very hard to find budge proof eye and lip liners.

I am so happy with this month’s Vellvette bag! They probably read my complaints in the previous post! 😛

Also, I am mega glad that I got more makeup products this month! Well done Vellvette!

Here is what I got overall :

I hope you enjoyed reading.

What’s In My October 2013 Vellvette Box/Bag!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 25th October 2013

Hello everyone!

The Vellvette Bag is BLUE this month!

Image

Here is a peek inside :

Image

This month’s theme for the Vellvette Bag was KISS. ( Keep It Simple, Sexy)

Image

Here is what I got :

Image

1. VANTIV Moisturizing Shampoo + Refreshing Lemon Shower Gel 

Image

It feels like they put in an effort to personalize the bag this time. My hair is very dry and I am quite pleased to receive a moisturizing shampoo. My friend, who has normal hair, received an energizing version.

Image

This smells strongly of lemons, almost like the lemon hard candy we used to eat as children, which I personally find refreshing but it may not be everyone’s cup pf tea. However, I would’ve preferred to receive the Cool Water version like some of the other subscribers did!

Both these products are full size and cost Rs. 187/- and Rs. 214/- respectively.

2. Florelle Wet And Dry Blush – Marmorized

Image

Here is a closer look :

Image

Quick swatches :

Image

It gives a beautiful sheen to the cheeks. I have only used it dry and was happy with the results. It is a plumy pink shade that is wonderful for the Autumn/Winter time. I like that it doesn’t have chunky glitter and can be worn easily during the day.

It is a full size product and costs Rs. 750/-

3. Brocato Actives Restorative Hair Infusion Serum

Image

I am excited to try this product as I have damaged hair after chemical treatments and coloring them for years!

This is a deluxe sample size product and costs Rs. 375/- for 7 ml. Full size is 25 ml and retails for Rs. 1275/-

I am satisfied with this month’s bag. The blush is beautifully pigmented unlike the eye shadows we received last month! The bag is personalized to my needs which is a pleasant relief.

My subscription expires this month so I also received a renewal offer to get 10% off when I book a new one. I am happy with this month’s box but I wonder when Vellvette will start sending products from brands like Dior, Clinique, Lush, Kerastase, Caudalie, Clarins, Shiseido, Lancome etc because it shows all these products on the website.  I am going to renew my subscription in the hopes of being sent products from luxury brands so I can try them out before spending a ton of money on them. This is what beauty subscription boxes are supposed to do. When I look at international beauty boxes like Ipsy and Birchbox, they provide 5-6 items per bag for $10 that are great value, I feel like Vellvette is probably not doing enough. Maybe, it needs more competition and we need more such beauty or fashion subscription services in India!

I also have a coupon to give any one of you Rs. 100/- off of your first bag. Please email me at queriesforaishwarya@gmail.com if you are interested. I will send it to the first person who emails me.

What’s In My August 2013 Vellvette Box/Bag?

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Friday, 30th August 2013

Hello everyone!

I received my Vellvette Box Bag yesterday and here is what it looks like :

Image

I am glad they sent a pouch/bag instead of a big cardboard box. These bags are useful for storing things and come in handy for travel.

Here is a peek inside :

Image

This month’s theme for the Vellvette Box was “Ticket To Hollywood”

Image

I have been seeing “Bonus” products in many other blogger’s posts about this month’s Vellvette Box but I got only 3 products!

Image

However, the good part is that there are 2 full size products.

The first product is the Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme Gloss in “Sheer Cherry”. I have been meaning to try this product and I was excited about this in my bag. I am glad it is full size.

Image

Many other bloggers got a clear version but I was glad to receive a beautiful color.

And NO, it does not plump up my lips. It doesn’t even feel tingly enough to be a lip plumper.

The Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker feels a lot tinglier than this. Read full review HERE

I would just call it a regular gloss. It smells like Cinnamon which is a little off putting because I don’t like the smell of Cinnamon. I do like the brush applicator though. I prefer brush applicators over doe foot applicators.

Image

The next product is another full size product.

Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Aloe & Mint Balm. This is a repeat product. I saw it in the February issue.

Image

I do like appreciate a full size balm. I am a lip balm hoarder and addict!

I do not like the smell of this. I can faintly smell mint and perhaps some Aloe. But, when I put it on my lips, I did feel the cooling sensation of mint and I could sense a whiff of mintyness.

I like that it is 100% Organic.

The last product is a disappointment! 😦 H2O Sea Results Deep Sleep Recovery Cream.

Image

I have seen some other bloggers getting a much better sample of this product range. Maybe even a deluxe sized sample would’ve been alright.

I wish Vellvette paid more attention to the customer’s needs. I do not really need anti-aging right now! Plus any skincare takes atleast 3 weeks to start showing results. So, I don’t care about itty-bitty samples of skin care.

However, this claims “Overnight Treatment” so I guess this would last 2-3 uses. I will give it to my mother to try out!

Overall, here is what I got :

Image

I will not say I am unhappy but I am not ecstatic either. I do like the gloss and the balm but that tiny sample of night cream didn’t do anything for me!

I’m hoping Vellvette steps up its game next month!
