I'll start with the good things for this month's box.
NS-5 CUTICLE & NAIL COMPLEX ($9.95) - Full size
SINFUL NAIL POLISH ($4.95) - Full Size
I've seen this nail polish range at my local Priceline and Target over the past couple of months and have always been intrigued to try it but as I have quite an extensive range of polishes I hadn't bothered to buy any as they didn't have anything that was unusual or a colour that I didn't already have.
Surprisingly this polish was quite pigmented and also had a nice shine to it. Given that it is a cheap line it really impressed me with this and it wore well with minimal to no chipping. This is one polish that I will definitely use once summer hits us!
Now for the bad.... and I mean REALLY BAD!
THE VINTAGE COSMETIC COMPANY
FLORAL SLANTED TWEEZERS ($14.95) & EMERY BOARD ($4.95)
The emery board has quite a lot of texture and even though in the description it states it's for "soft, weak and fragile nails" it still worked on my strong, hard nails so it wasn't a complete disaster for The Vintage Cosmetic Company. However, the tweezers are a WHOLE OTHER STORY.
These tweezers have NO GRIP and are absolutely useless. USELESS. What is the point of a pair of tweezers that do not have any grip? It took 4-5 goes to even feel a tug on the hair and it didn't necessarily guarantee hair removal whereas my Revlon Diamond Grip tweezers that I picked up two years ago for a little more than the RRP of these ones pick the hair and tweeze on the first go. So either I got a pair of dud tweezers or The Vintage Cosmetic Company need to remake this product.
ELEVEN AUSTRALIA'S MIRACLE HAIR TREATMENT
TIMELESS TRUTH Q10 CAVIAR NOURISHING MASK ($7.00)
I did not notice a change in the feel of my skin, or appearance of my skin after using this product but I didn't think I would considering it was only one mask. To be honest, I felt like I wasted my time even trying this.
Overall this month's Violet Box screamed cheap and nasty. I hope they up their game and give us some thing great in October's box cos otherwise I'll be cancelling my subscription soon enough.
