|Zoya 2015 Mystery Box|
Zoya had the mystery boxes for sale on Cyber Monday for $20 with free shipping & promised us "7 of our favorite products". The box itself is a nice black box & each of the products are in individual black boxes (except one silver box) inside so this would be a great gift or you could break up the box & give the products as multiple gifts. There's also a card listing the products & a Naked Manicure booklet & Qtica booklet. Technically the box came with 8 products (maybe the mini remove + was thrown in as filler?) which I'll list below:
-Cindy (sheer gold glitter)
-Renee (red cream)
-Marjorie (metallic plum)
These three polishes are from the Redbook limited edition collection & honestly were not something I was interested in buying at all, the colors are just plain/blah/too common to me. I really do think that these were added to the mystery box because they probably didn't sell as well as Zoya had hoped for. Retails for $27.
-Qtica Intense Lip Therapy Balm
Like I said, I *love* this lip balm & have almost completely used the one from last year's box. So happy that it was in this year's box also. Retails for $12.
-mini remove +
-Naked Manicure Glossy Seal
-mini Pink Perfector
These polishes are from the Naked Manicure line which I think is supposed to "correct" the flaws in your nails (yellowing & whatnot) depending on the color perfector you use. I wasn't very interested in any of these polishes when they came out either. They seemed kinda gimmicky to me & not worth the money & from the couple of blogger reviews I've read (I've only read a couple!), they don't seem overly wonderful. I'm wondering if these were also added into the box because they are selling like Zoya hoped? The base & glossy seal retail for $12 each & the "normal" size of Pink Perfector is $10.
Buying the box means you also got a code in your account for 50% off $50 or more plus free shipping, which is a pretty nice code (& I've already used mine).
Was this box worth $20 to me? Absolutely since my favorite lip product was included & it's $12 alone. Would I have bought most of these polishes on my own? No, but I see that as a plus since I don't already own any of them & I *LOVE* Zoya & I do own *a lot* of their polishes. What do you think of this box? Did you buy it? Do you wish you had/hadn't? Are you giving this as a gift?
