Boudoir Prive Beauty Box

Like Glossy Box, Boudoir Prive is a beauty box company that sends you monthly beauty samples. You can subscribe to them online for £10 + £2.95 (for shipping) per month, which you can cancel any time. This review is pretty late - its for the September box, but nonetheless my thoughts on the products it contains doesn't change.

The Boudoir Prive beauty box typically contains 5 to 6 beauty samples, but in this edition, they had 7, which is useful, depending on the products themselves. I got the following products:

Zoya Marina Nail Polish Mini
This is a semi-metallic denim blue colour. I'm not ecstatic about it, and as it dries relatively slowly and I'm a little bit impatient when it comes to nail polish. I've been spoilt by other brands such as drugstore Rimmel and China Glaze, which seem easier to use and of better quality.

Cargo Boogie Nights Mini Pencil Eyeliner
This is a sparkly denim blue eyeliner, along the same colour scheme as the Zoya nail polish previously mentioned. I found this quite smudgy and I don't really appreciate it. I've been spoiled by the MAC Greasepaint Sticks and Maybelline 2 in 1 Impact Shadow Liners, which are longer lasting and relatively smudge-free.

A Tiny tub of Tropic Body Smooth Refreshing Polish
This is a lemon-scented sugar scrub - or feels like it at least. This smells really good, however the tub is really tiny, maybe enough for 1 use for both legs or both arms. It really is a sample size!

I also got other products like the Agent Provocateur perfume sample, Macadamia Hair Oil, and Mai Couture Bronzing Blot Powder sample (which I'm a bit intimidated to use).

Overall, I was not really impressed with this selection of products. A lot of them I haven't heard of and after testing, they would not be products I would pick up for myself. I suppose the thing with these Beauty Boxes is the content can be a bit of hit and miss. Sometimes you would get products you absolutely love for the fraction of the retail price, and sometimes you feel you might have just wasted your money.

Exciting news however, is that Boudoir Prive joined the Joliebox, which is the leading beauty box subscription service in France. They have worked with high-end brands like Benefit, Kiehls, Essie, Lancome, etc, which means they will likely provide samples from these high end established brands.

Again, you can subscribe to the Boudoir Prive JolieBox at their website here.
