Petit Vour | December 2013 “Winter Wonders”

I received December’s Petit Vour box in the midst of my move so I literally did my “oohs” and “aahs” and had to put the box away in my “beauty corner” to focus on the rest of the apartment. Now, I’m able to really look at all of my beauty boxes and enjoy what’s in them!

Modern Minerals | Eyeshadow in Winter RoseDSC_0473

Based on two principles: truth + beauty, MM hosts a gorgeous array of clean, matte and shimmer eyeshadows that can also be used as liners, for brows or highlighting. How’s that for multitasking?

Thoughts: This is such a pretty shade! Winter Rose is a soft, pinky brown shimmer powder that can be used anywhere! I will admit that I’m not the best at remembering to use loose shadows as I often reach for any of my Naked palettes when I’m getting ready in the morning. I’ll try to make it a point to use at least one loose eyeshadow this month.

Full size: 2g/$10.00

I received: *FULL SIZE*

Pacifica | Enlightened Lip Gloss in Beach KissDSC_0475

At your next soirée, make sure you’re donning this gloss, full of supernatural shine. Super smooth and non-sticky with nourishing hydration and long lasting natural color, and infused with coconut and antioxidants to help support superior lip health.

Thoughts: I have tried Pacifica products before mainly due to Ipsy, but this is the first makeup item I have received! The packaging is gorgeous and I especially love the cap! The colour is beautiful and the ingredients even better!  

Full size: 2.8g/$12.00 

I received: *FULL SIZE*

A.Dorn | 4 Free Nail Paint in All Hands on DeckDSC_0476

Make your own sun this winter with a.dorn’s hot statement shades. From trendy bohemian to fairy tale-inspired, we’re experiencing a major nail crush.

Thoughts: Eeek! I was super excited to receive a nail polish in this box and in my favourite nail polish colour too!

Full size: 15mL/$11.00

Be Natural Organics | Botanically Active SkincareDSC_0477

This nutrient-dense lotion has the added benefits of polyphenols in a soothing base to nourish, calm and condition sensitive skin - a perfect travel extra for when you hit the slopes.

This 2 in 1 cleansing oil and eye makeup remover is carefully blended with high performing natural oils to gently cleanse deep within the pores, while preserving your skin's lipid barrier, balance and moisture.

Thoughts: I appreciate skincare, but I guess I’ve been overloaded from other boxes which is no one’s fault by my own! The 2 in 1 cleansing oil looks quite nice and smells like orange peel oil which I love! 

Full size: Gentle Face Lotion 30mL/$24.00 Oil Treatment 180mL/$18.00 (Incredible reasonable prices!) 

I received: Total samples worth $6.00

Total Value of December Petit Vour Box: $39.00

My favourites are obviously the a.dorn nail polish and also the Pacifica lip gloss! I am still loving my Petit Vour sub and enjoy seeing brands that don’t normally get showcased in more mainstream beauty boxes. I was scared that subbing to a vegan-friendly box would result in a lot of “homemade” packaging and whatnot, but I have been surprised by the number of well-established vegan companies that create both beautiful products and packaging! I know it should be all about the product, but packaging does win me over just a little bit more…

Oh yeah, if any of you want to try out Petit Vour, tell them Jayne sent you at contact@petitvour.com! You know I don’t really mind whether you use my referral or not. I just want ya’ll to feel comfortable doing whatever you want to do!
