Popsugar Must Have December 2014 Review and $15 Off Coupon Code!

The December 2014 Popsugar MustHave box really wowed me.  Is that cheesy to say?  I think I may have actually said "Wow!" as I unboxed everything.  It really is a fabulous box.  Since I get an extra one because I bought the Popsugar Special Edition for Her, I think I'm going to use this whole box as the gift I bring to our family Christmas party.  I don't know anybody who wouldn't love to get all this.

The Cost: $39.95/month.

What You Get: You'll get an exciting monthly box full of fun, full-size products that are hand-selected by the Popsugar editors. Full-size products and premium items in beauty, fashion, home, fitness, and food.

Canvas Dauville Platinum Bowl- The exterior is a creamy textured bisque finish which contrasts with the shiny gold or platinum interior.  This is smaller than I expected but still so perfect and cute.  It's the main reason I wanted the box!  Here's another shot:
It's 4" across and 2" deep.  The outside has a matte, handpainted finish and the inside, as you can see, is a super shiny platinum.  And now you know that my camera has a hot pink Otterbox case (thank you, Nina Garcia).  And now since I've shown you the necklace, I'll show it up close.
Sparklepop Sydney Necklace-  This is an 18k gold-plated necklace that can be worn long or looped and layered.  This is FAR prettier in real life than it is in any photo I took.  When you get it, you'll see what I mean.
It's a substantial gem and the chain itself has small, gold beaded details that add interest and texture. It's beautiful.  It hangs nicely because the pendant has a good weight to it, too.
Value: $42
SPUN by Subtle Luxury Speckled Metallic Scarf-  Look how beautifully the scarf and the necklace go together!  This scarf is gray and very thin with frayed edges. The gold speckles are only on one side.  It's a long rectangle and I like it because it's not bulky.
Value: $62
Knot and Bow Parcel Tags- Ten cardstock tags perfect for the season.  These will be used for sure since I forgot to buy stickers the last time I was at the store.
Value: $4

Smashbox Be Legendary Long-Wear Lip Lacquer in Bordeaux- A rich and delicious wine color (one of my favorite shades, I admit).  It's a staining pigment that should last a long time.  I'm testing it out right now.  So far most of it is on my coffee cup.  Whoops.
Value: $24
Williams-Sonoma All Natural Cupcake Mix in Vanilla-  Last but not least, what are the holidays without dessert?!  Inside this cute cardboard tin (I know it doesn't make sense) is a plastic bag full of cupcake-making powder.  I was hoping for some frosting but no.  There's a recipe for it on the back of the tin (I know, I know, it's cardboard) for a buttercream frosting, though.
Value: $14.95 (pfft! Its a cake mix! And it didn't come with frosting!)

VERDICT: One of my favorite Popsugar boxes to date.  Love it.  Love the scarf, the necklace, the Smashbox lip lacquer and the bowl.  The tags and cake mix will be used even if they aren't my favorite things, they are seasonally appropriate.  I'm glad I'm getting three of them.  Makes it easier to give one away for Christmas. :D

If you'd like to get this box, sign up quick because it's still available!  Make sure you uncheck the "Waitlist" radio button.  You don't want Novembers (although they might be sold out anyway so there shouldn't be an issue).

Use code MH15 and get $15 off your box!!  That is a FANTASTIC deal!!
