A Peek Into My November Vellvette Box

I had missed out on the October Vellvette box and after reading rave reviews of it, I was really eager to get my hands on the November one. When I subscribed to it, the one month subscriptions were all sold out so I opted for the 3 month subscription.
Here’s a peek at my Vellvette box:
What do I feel about my Vellvette box? Very honestly, I’m a bit disappointed with it. Why, you ask? 
Well, for one, the meager 5 capsule sample of Elizabeth Arden Ceramide capsules  is nothing to crow about. Any Elizabeth Arden counter would give a sample of 5 capsules for FREE! (I know this coz I got 5 sample capsules for Ceramide Eye from an EA counter for my mom-in-law a couple of months ago). This being a paid sample box, they could have included more capsules in it.
They sent me blue eyeshadow…BLUE…and not even a navy blue, this is a cobalt blue!!! (And NYX included among luxury brands??? Oh really???) How do they decide which colour to put in which box? Wish I could have got a neutral, more wearable colour *sighs*.
The only saving grace in the box is the Claudalie body lotion in a 30ml tube. I have been wanting to try Claudalie since quite some time so I’m looking forward to using it. 
The box also has product information sheets as well as discount coupons for buying the full-sized product from Vellvette.com.
 
Since I already have a 3month subscription, I really hope that the Dec and Jan boxes turn out better (fingers crossed). 
 
What did you get in your box?

  2. Hey Dollie,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I really appreciate it. 🙂

    I so agree with you about the quantity of Elizabeth Arden capsules, since we are paying for it EA and Vellvette should have at least provided 10 or so. Even I opted for the three month subcription, I hope i get good products like I got in the October box. Fingers crossed!!!!!

    Btw, can we follow each other?

    Best,
    Priyanka (The Purplenista)

    1. Thanks for checking out my blog Priyanka 🙂 Im following you already. Really hope you get some good stuff in ur nov box. Do post once you get it.

  3. I got the capsules last month. Agree with the NYX powder. Cobalt Blue is not my fav color but maybe you could mix it with another pigment to get a darker blue. Caudalie looks good though

    1. Yup, will have to experiment a bit with the pigment.

    1. Glad u liked the colour…will swatch soon 🙂
      What did u get in d nov box?

  5. Nice blog you have 🙂
    You can experiment using the pigment as nail paint.. it will make a good color

    1. Thanks 🙂
      How do I use the pigment as nail colour? It sounds like a really good idea but how?

      hi, thanks for visiting my blog earlier and following me 🙂 i’m following you too.
      you can use the NYX powder by taking an adequate amount of it and putting it in a bottle of clear nail polish. shake/mix well. make a blog post if it turns out to be a nice shade! 🙂

    3. Thanks Jyoti…might try it out tho I’m not too fond of blue on my nails either 😉

      most welcome! 🙂 I hope you get better products in the next VB Dec edition 🙂 and hey, i’m sure it’ll look better on your nails than on your eyes. because blue is not a very wearable eye color. isn’t it?

    5. you’re right…it might just look good on my nails…will try it and do a post if it turns out nice 🙂
