October Popsugar Must Have Box Review and Discount Code

Popsugar has become my favorite box that I get for me.  It is $35.00 a month, but it is increasing by $5.00 November 1, 2013.  Popsugar sends a box of the must have items from the month.  You can all kinds of items from makeup, to hair clips, books, snacks, you name it.  I love that they send such a variety of things, there is always something I love in the box.  I saw the spoilers for this month, and I was really excited to get my box.  This month, Popsugar nailed it!  I loved my entire box.  Normally, I do a first look, but I was took excited and opened my box.
The Information Card
Popsugar has amazing information cards.  Their cards fold out and have information about each product, why they picked it and the picture.  I don’t like staring at the information card, trying to find out what is what.  This month, Popsugar is donating a $1.00 to Breast Cancer research with every box sold.

NYX Smoky Shadow Palette $7.00
I love this palette.  I will use all of these colors.  I like that Popsugar didn’t include any loud and crazy colors.
Julep Maven Freedom Top Coat  $18.00 retail $14.40 maven price
Char (It Girl) $14.00 retail $11.20 maven pricing
Julep recently made an appearance in my Citrus Lane box.  I was hoping Popsugar would get a different color than Citrus Lane included, and I was happy to see they did.  Popsugar send two polishes: the freedom top coat and Char nail polish.  The Freedom Top Coat is one of my favorite Julep products.  It makes your nails look glossy and it tries your polish in 5 minutes!  The other polish was Char, a beautiful dark blue color.  If you are interested in find out more about Julep Maven and how to get a free box, check out my October review HERE.
The Crispery Halloween Sprinkled Crispycake $3.95
This is an amazing rice crispy treat.  It is covered with icing and sprinkles.  It is also loaded with goody marshmallows.  I have started eating it, but it is huge.  I will have to eat it a bit at a time.  I am going to order more from this company.
Jane Tran Bobby Pins $12.00
I love these bobby pins.  They are big enough for think hair.  I have to use tons of those little bobby pins, because they are so small.  These will be good to keep small hairs away from my face, when I am running
Stitch Fix Gift Card $45.00 ($20.00 face value and $25 for the waived styling fee)
I love Stitch Fix.  You pay $25.00 for a styling fee, and a stylist puts together a box of clothes and send it to you.  You fill out a style survey with your size and preference.  You can even link up your Pinterest boards.  You keep the clothes you like and send back the clothes you don’t.  It is free shipping both ways.  If you buy something, you styling fee gets applied to your purchase.  I tried Stitch Fix a couple months ago.  You can see my review here.  This gift card from Popsugar waves the styling fee and gives you $20.00 in clothes.  That is a $45.00 value!
The Wet Brush $14.00
This brush is made for all types of hair: thick, thin, curly, wigs, kids, etc.  You can use it on wet or dry hair.  The company is currently donating 25% of sales from this brush to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Gorjana Charity Bali Bead Bracelet $45.00
When someone purchases this bracelet from Gorjana’s retail site, 100% of the profits will go to Breast Cancer Awareness.  The bracelet is very cute.  It does run on the small side, but it does fit my wrist.  This would be a cute gift for a young girl too!  I was a bit surprised by the $45.00 retail price, WOW!
I Can’t Cook Book: Recipes by the Absolutely Terrified by Jessica Seinfeld $27.00 list price ($16.44 on Amazon)
This book was written for me!  I can’t cook, well at least not well.  I can follow directions, but I don’t attempt crazy, complicated recipes.  This books gives tips and very SIMPLE recipes.  I am using this, and maybe, I will impress someone with my cooking.
NYX Liquid Brown Liner $6.00
This is the only item I am not crazy about.  I always wear black eye liner. I have blue eyes, pale skin and dark brown hair.  I have never used brown.  I am not sure if I will try this or trade it with someone.
Contest Card
The Whole Box
Final Thought: This is my favorite box from Popsugar so far.  The total value of this box (using the cheapest prices) was $174.99.  Wow, what a fantastic value for $35.00!  I loved this box and the brown eyeliner, was the only product I didn’t love.  The price for Popsugar is going up Nov 4th.  Right now, you can upgrade or subscribe at the current rate of $34.99 a month, 3 months is $95.00, 6 months is $190.00 and 12 months is $380.00.
