Hurrah for August! Hurrah for my first ever Elite Box from BDJ!
I first learned about BDJ’s Elite Box offering some time in June when I received an email from them asking me if I wanted a refund for my August to September subscription or if I want to add 250PhP to convert it to an Elite box. I’ve only subscribed to two boxes previously (March and July 2015) and they were all regular boxes so I was ecstatic when I learned I am finally getting my hands on an elite one!
I received mine exactly a week after it was shipped out. (Shame on your chosen courier!) And as I’ve seen on BDJ Box’s Facebook Page and the BDJ Elite Circle Group, everything inside was from Revlon.
(WARNING: Almost everything is RED!)
Here’s what’s inside (in order of favorites):
I LOVE red lipsticks! And I’m excited for this one because it isn’t matte. It’s a lacquer and it has a glossy finish. I haven’t applied a gloss or a gloss type product since I was in high school! This is something new to add to my growing lip product collection.
And another red lipstick to add to my collection! Hehehe… This one is from Revlon’s collaboration with the fashion house Marchesa.
Seen enough red, yet? hahaha! Aside from painting my lips red, I love painting my nails red too! This shade is quite close to my favorite Pussy Red shade from Bobbie.
I’m currently quite interested with brows… I am even thinking of having my virgin brows shaped by a professional so this item is something that is on my to-try and to-use list. One end of the product is a defining pencil and the other end is a sheer tint gel to help shape and set the brows.
I’ve always wanted to try curling my lashes before applying my mascara but I never got a chance to buy myself a lash curler. hahah! Good thing this is included. 😀
Being a powder-lip-balm-and-cheek-tint kind of girl you’ll prolly expect this item to be higher on the list but no… Ever since I discovered cheek tint (specifically EB’s Lip & Cheek Tint) I’ve never bothered with powdered blushes. This one looks like it suits my skin tone though.. so why not?
Not really sure how I feel about this product as I don’t put any eye make up aside from mascara… I guess that’s why it’s on the bottom two. This looks promising though because for make up amateurs or beginners like me, we can complete a make up look without sweating the eye part by just swiping this on.
Lastly we have this hair dye. It’s on the bottom of the list for one reason: it’s almost the same shade as my natural hair color so using this won’t even create anything new. This one’s already set to be given to my mom. 😀
Total box Value: 3,570 PhP
For a 1,480 PhP subscription, is it worth it? Yes! But I do hope BDJ would start partnering with other unknown brands (perhaps Japanese, Korean brands?) so we can actually discover new or promising brands. While the box is great, the products are easily available in malls. The only difference we have is that we got ours for a lesser price.
