Mirenesse April 2014 Glamm Box and Coupon Code!

I received my Mirenesse April Glamm Box the other day.  Right before I was about to leave on my little anniversary trip so I didn't have time to write about it.  So!

Mirenesse has a VIP program which costs $25 a month.  If you sign up you get a $25 voucher that you may use on a $65 purchase.  You also receive special pricing, free shipping and a free Beauty Box every other month.

Use Coupon Code VIP20 and get $20 off your first month fee.  This will get you discounted prices and free shipping for a month.  Read this post to make sure you do it right.

I had previously planned on signing up for two months to get the free beauty box but I think I've got so much stuff right now I don't need any more.

So I purchased the April Glamm Box with both skincare and make-up along with a Mystery Box with three full size items.  I also bought a gift for a friend who loves skulls and I'm not blogging about it just in case she reads this and finds out :)

The main problem I had was that I had no idea which was what when I received it!  Everything was in bags and I had no idea what belonged to the April Box and what didn't!  So, this review might be slightly skewed.  I'm HOPING I got it right but if I'm wrong, dont kill me!


It all came in a shiny black box.  There was no information card and for the first time I realized how handy those things actually are!

Okay, so in this photo you can see the free gift in the foreground and the two bags in the back.  One of those bags is the April Glamm Box and one is the Mystery Box with the 3 full size items for $20.  I might actually be able to narrow this down by looking at my own photos!  That bag on the right is the Mystery Box.
Every single item came in an envelope.  Okay, and I'm now pretty sure I know what came in the
April Glamm Box.

 You have a choice when it comes to the Mirenesse Glamm Boxes.  These are not a subscription item.  They are $25 each and you can decide if you want all make up, all skin care or a little of both.  I chose a little of both.
 Mirenesse Cheeky Blush in Paris Peach- I'm kind of embarrassed to tell you how long it took me to get this open.  It slides.  It has a small mirror which is nice, too.  The shade is EXTREMELY shimmery and is a bit too much for me.  I prefer a very natural looking blush.  My current favorite is Bella Pierre in Desert Rose.
This item is part of the $20 Mystery Box.
Value: $14.95
Included Size: Full Size
 Mirenesse Studio Magic BB Pore Powder in Vanilla- This reminds me of bareMinerals Mineral Veil.  I'm reluctant to try it because it seems so yellow.  It comes with a sponge.
This item is part of the $20 Mystery Box.
Value: $25
Included Size: Full Size
Mirenesse Touch On Concealer in Charmed (Ivory Pink)-  I was really concerned at how pigmented this concealer was.  It is a definite pink in the tube.  However it goes on so completely sheer that it works.  Well, it works as a wonderful highlighter.  It does not work at concealing those under eye circles.  A very tiny bit goes a long way as its a lot runnier than you might expect.  I used my fingers and a beauty blender might work but a brush would probably be overkill.
This item is part of the April Glamm Box.
Value: $24
Size Included: Full Size
This is what I got in the Mystery bag.  Three full size lip glosses.  Two of them were Lip Bombs in the colors you see here.  These are nicely pigmented and pretty sticky.  The applicators are  little fuzzy paddles instead of a straight stick. These are colors 26 and 12.  I wish they had actual names.
The Darker Shade is part of the April Glamm Box.  The Lighter Shade is part of the $20 Mystery Box.
Value: $25
Size Included: Full Size
Mirenesse Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine- This is a plumping lip gloss with sodium hyaluronate in it.  It is very moisturizing because of that ingredient.  To be honest, I didn't really find any plumping going on even though they claim that the "microcollagen" is supposed to do that.  It is very sheer and beautifully glossy but it is also quite sticky which is not something I love.  Yeah.  The first time I wore it, I took a walk.  And got a bug stuck on my lip in my gloss.  I can't dwell on that because it sort of makes me want throw up.  
Value: $24
Size Included: Full Size

I also got a free sample of another shade of Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine.  It's a little too orangey for me, though.

VERDICT:  Well.  It's hard to say.  I got a 3 full size products in my April Glamm Box for $25.  I also got 3 full size products in a $20 Mystery Box add-on.  I did use my $25 voucher (I had to spend $65, thats where the gifts I bought for my friend came in)  so let's say I spent I spent $35 on these six items.  Honestly, I'm not going to do it again.  I guess I didn't realize how much I like trying new and different brands in the boxes I get.  This was all Mirenesse and while I like some of the items I can't use them all.  I do recommend trying it out once at least though!  That's a lot of full size products!
