Another 3 months have passed so quickly! Time for another Beauty Loop Box unboxing. This time, I wasn’t surprised by what was in the box… the contents of the box were in the email notifying me to pick up the box. So sad… :( Anyway, here’s a look at what’s in the box.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Sample size 1ml?? (not specified). Full size is 10ml for $33 at Mecca.
Hmm… never tried this one. But I’m sure it will be good for my oily eyelids. Though I’m not a big eyeshadow wearer on a daily basis. And also, I would want to use it a few times with different shadows to see how well it works… I don’t think this size will give me a few uses…
Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser
Sample size 2ml. Full size is 120ml for $60 at Mecca.
More Kate Somerville… I’ve received so many of her skincare products in foil packet samples. They’re all still sitting there. I personally think that for skincare items you need to try it more than once to know if it is good for your skin.
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil
Sample size 4.5ml. Full size is 15ml for $25 or 50ml for $75 at Mecca.
This is a really good sample size. It’s an oil so 4.5ml will give you more than enough for a few days use. It’s also in a dropper bottle, making it easy to reseal and use. Though I’m not a huge fan of oils that smell like oil. E.g. like the Tarte Maracuja oil. I feel like my face smells like I’ve just done some deep frying in the kitchen. This one isn’t as bad as that, but it still smells “oily”. I think I’ll stick to my Kielh’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate.
Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer
Sample size 1ml. Full size is 8.95ml for $29; 30ml for $83; 57g for $115 at Mecca.
What a down grade from the little 5ml bottles from the past. I remember complaining about getting too many of those in these boxes… and now it has gone another step down… It is a really good primer. I would know. I’ve received at least three 5 ml bottles in the past in both L1 and L2 boxes. But it’s a very expensive primer!
Ok. So what was the deal with revealing what was in the box in the email?? Besides that, I guess there isn’t much to talk about. I do appreciate that Mecca tried to include a deluxe sample in the boxes, but I seriously don’t like foil packet skincare. Particularly when you only get one packet. I think it would be better if you got a few so you can try it out properly… I seriously think I’m getting spoiled with the awesome Korean beauty samples…

Happy Shopping Everyone! :)
