PopSugar Must Have OCTOBER Box

PopSugar Must Have Box is a monthly subscription box that has full size items that were hand selected by the Editors of PopSugar! These items vary from:  Must Have Home, Food, Beauty and Fashion. They have recently announced that as of November 4, the boxes will be $39.95. But if you sign up now for a 3, 6 or 12month subscription you will lock in the price of $35/box! Just a little hint, they have collaborated with Neiman Marcus for next month's box if you guys are interested in signing up! Here's a hint they posted on their Instagram:

Thank you! You rock!
Now onto this month's box!

October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, PopSugar will be donating $1 for every box sold this month to breast cancer research. They have also teamed up with a couple of companies that supports a lot of other breast cancer charities. They of course, included a bit of Halloween theme in their box as well. Let's just go ahead and see what was in this month's box!

Must Have Beauty 
Julep for PopSugar Duo
NYX Cosmetic Liquid Liner & Smokey Shadow Palette

PopSugar have teamed up with Julep for this exclusive nail polish duo. One is a top coat which dries in 5 minutes and dries smudge-free. I love the top coat and have protected my nails from chipping! The other one is in shade Coco,  which is reddish-brown in color. Sorry I haven't worn it yet, but keep an eye on my Instagram feed (which you can see on the right side of this blog site OR HERE!) soon!

I have been eyeing the NYX Smokey Shadow Palette since I saw it from Rose of Beauty Bar Daily's post, here. I was really so close on getting that kit but good thing I didn't since PopSugar have included it in this months box! I have used this over the weekend to do a daytime and nighttime smokey eye and it's ok. NYX shadows have not been the most pigmented shadows comparing it to theBalm Nude 'Tude palette. I have to see how they do if I use the NYX pencil in Milk underneath to make the color pop more.
I have not tried the NYX Liquid Liner yet since I have other liquid liners that I am using right now so I don't know yet if I am keeping this one or not.
I am very excited to see Julep nail polishes in this month's box since I have been eyeing these polishes since I have seen them every where! Glad they teamed up with Julep!

Must Have Beauty
The Wet Brush
"The magic of The Wet Brush is in the specially formulated bristles that eliminate all the tugging, tearing, pulling, and ripping...The Wet Brush are making a donation toward the fight against breast cancer for every brush included in this month's box."

I have not tried this brush since I am using the Tangle Teezer brush (I bought here), and has been working well with my wet or dry long hair.

Must Have Fashion
Jane Tran Bobby Pins
I have never heard of Jane Tran before but these bobby pins are pretty cute! I love the colors, very wearable for everyday use. I love wearing bobby pins to do a simple half-do or keep my bangs away from my face. So these are a keeper!

Must Have Fashion
Gorjana Charity Bali Bead Bracelet
"When someone purchases this bracelet- made in our signature pink color- on the gorjana retail site, 100 percent of the proceeds of the piece go to the charity Breast Cancer Connections."
Here's the link to their site: 

"Wear your pink with pride this October."
It's not 10% or 20% to charity but 100% of the proceeds goes to Breast Cancer Connections! It's such a win-win situation when you get a nice piece of  jewelry for helping out a charity!

Must Have Food
The Can't Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified!
This has pages dedicated to the ones who have not turned on their oven and have used it as a shoe storage instead. Jessica Seinfeld (yes, Jerry Seinfeld's wife!), will tell you what you would need in your kitchen to get started and how to prep, chop the garlic and measure your liquids and dry ingredients.

I have browsed through the book already and though I am no newbie in the kitchen (just lazy), I do love how simple the recipes are, the prepping and the ingredients! She even has a "Quickie" section in here that does not need any cooking and it's not just salads!
You can check out more of the book here:

Must Have Food
The Crispery Halloween Crispycake
"Handmade, soft, and perfectly gooey, these gourmet crispy cakes from The Crispery will put a smile on the face of your inner child."
This definitely was gone the same day I got my box! Paired this with a cup of Earl Grey and my morning was satisfied! Yes I had it for breakfast my friends and I do not regret it! This was definitely, soft and gooey! It was easy to eat with a fork (since I was checking my blogs and emails, Instagram and tweets on the phone as well), I really did not want to use my hands while multitasking. I have a sweet tooth and this was just perfect with a nice hot tea for me. I don't really care about the sprinkles but I love how gooey this is and just delicious!

Special Extra
Stitch Fix
"Try out this fun new personal styling service to get handpicked fashion goodies delivered right to your door."

StitchFix is not a monthly subscription box but you create your style profile and your personal stylist will send you 5 items that he/she would think you would like (clothes and accessories). This card gives you $20 towards the stylist fee and then can be applied later on to your purchase and if you buy all the items they have included in the box, you get 25% off the total purchase! You can return what you don't like and just pay for the item(s) you want to keep. I think you have three days to return it.
Read more about them on their site here: https://stitchfix.com

"Enjoy $20 off your purchase plus a waived styling fee."

It is an interesting concept since you are not locked-in to a monthly fee and you only pay if you do want to keep an item. I do still need to read on this more; look at more blog reviews on this site since I have not heard or read anything about this.

And that is it for my PopSugar Must Have Box for October folks! I actually can't stop thinking of next month's box already since it's a collaboration with Neiman Marcus! All I know about Neiman Marcus is it's some fancy shopping happening in there! PopSugar is really good by not showing any more hints with their boxes so we all just have to wait and see what else is in it!

So what do you think of this subscription box? Is it something you would sign-up for? 

Okay my gorgeous peeps, thanks for stopping by and hopefully I see you all again on my next post!
