MARIE CLAIRE THE PARCEL: AUTUMN EDIT 2016

image

It feels like a hot minute since I last received The Parcel, so once it arrived, I wasted no time ripping open the box to discover the following items:

– Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum 30ml
– Garnier Miscellar Cleansing Water 125ml
-MOR Emporium Classic Triple-Milled Soap in Blood Orange 180g
-O.P.I Nail Lacquer in the shade “Suzi’s Hungary Again” 15ml
-CROP Natural Pure Macadamia Oil 50ml
-Gilded Cage Unleashed Lipstick in the shade “117”

THE STANDOUT PRODUCT!

First of all I appreciated receiving a full size lipstick. Especially considering that it’s worth $40AUD, that’s great value for money considering The Parcel costs $25 a quarter.   I absolutely adore Gilded Cage’s Unleashed Lipstick.   The shade I received “117” is stunning, a beautiful, bright, orange based red, that comes in the most elegant and sophisticated packaging. Highly pigmented, long lasting and comfortable on the lips, I will definitely be trying more from the range.

HONOURABLE MENTION

I am keen to put the Estée Lauder New Dimension Shape + Fill Expert Serum to the test as it claims to give visible results in 2 weeks. Big claim! Upon application I noticed the smooth, gel like formula applied easily and left my skin feeling hydrated with a lightly floral, perfumed scent.  The 30ml container makes it easy to travel with and there is enough product to test whether you want to spend $140AUD for the full size product.

Having never tried anything from the Crop range, I was intrigued by this multipurpose oil. Macadamia oil  has many benefits including repairing hair breakage, frizz control, anti-aging  and of course has hydrating properties. The oil has a very mild nut scent and when applied it doesn’t leave an oily residue. Crop Macadamia Oil retails for $18.

 

Garnier Micellar Water.  I don’t need to tell you about Micellar water, last year the beauty world was a bombarded with Micellar water, the miracle make-up remover. Perfect for those late nights when you have a face full of make up that needs to come off pronto. Having another bottle of Micellar water will always come in handy. Garner Micellar Water retails for $6.95

The O.P.I Nail Lacquer I received was in the shade Suzi’s Hungary Again! Yes Hungary  not hungry I didn’t spell it incorrectly. O.P.I is a cult classic and the colour is beautiful, bright pink. O.P.I Nail Lacquers retail for $19.95.

The Mor Emporium Triple Milled Soap smells delicious, with a strong, fragrant blood orange scent. I have to admit that while I will most certainly use the soap, I was a little disappointed to have already received the same soap in a different scent a few parcels ago.  You can pick up this soap for $19.95.

OVERALL

Overall I was very happy with the Autumn Edit of the The Parcel. There were a few brands I had never tried before and a couple of classics I was happy to restock on. The total cost of all products included comes to $244.85, although keep in mind that the Estée Lauder serum cost $140, I only received a sample size which wouldn’t have cost that much.
