I came across My Little Box after reading a few reviews of last month’s box, the Diane von Furstenberg one, on various blogs. I’ve had Glossybox in the past, right when subscription boxes became a thing, but aside from the initial excitement of it, wasn’t terribly impressed. So I thought My Little Box sounded a bit different, since it’s more of a lifestyle box than a beauty one, and I’d give it a try. It’s originally a French box and the delivery comes from Paris each month, and I definitely feel like the whole concept is very French, not just Parisian chic, but everything about the country as a whole. This was my second box, and I was very excited to open it and discover that it was telling me to stay in at home with “My Little Cosy Box” and couldn’t wait to find out what was inside – I certainly wasn’t disappointed either!
Every box has a little illustrated postcard, a magazine which is exclusive to the box, My Little World, and a variety of lifestyle and beauty products, at least one of which is from the company’s own beauty brand, My Little Beauty.
So this month’s box contained:
My Little Bouillotte by Tsumori Chisato
Espresso Coffee Mug
Smoky Eye Kit
The make up pieces this month were chosen in order to help you create a smoky eye look – something I have never yet been able to achieve! There was a dark coloured Yves Rocher eyeshadow, which I’ve only tested a little on my eyes so far because it is pretty dark and I haven’t had an occasion for it. The eyeliner is called Star Liner by Arancil Paris – it’s nice and easy to use, soft and easily blendable, but doesn’t move once in place. And finally there’s the My Little Beauty Mascara which I’m using as my everyday mascara at the moment (whenever I wear it anyway, which usually isn’t a work day!) – it doesn’t create a huge amount of volume, but enough for me to make a difference.
