Popsugar Must Have Special Edition Holiday for Her Review and Coupons

Popsugar Must Have releases a limited edition box at least quarterly. This season there are two available: Holiday for Her and Holiday for Him. I decided to get the Holiday for Her box because I loved last years so much. The special editions are $100 each and the Holiday for Her has over $400 in value.

They did release a spoiler of an Elizabeth Cole bracelet which I wasn't too sure about but I'd already made my decision and bought it so I was hoping I liked it.

White + Warren Luxe Knotted Headband- I am so in love with this! It's 100% cashmere so it's super soft. It fits perfectly, it's not too wide and it looks adorable! I think this could be my favorite item in this box. That's how much I love it and how well it fits.
Value: $88
Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge EDP- This is a slim glass vial that's actually pretty but quite impractical for actually dispensing perfume. This is supposed to smell like roses and cream but I was too afraid to open it and spill it everywhere so I just took what little whiff I could. It smells like old lady to me. Sadly. Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Rose Centifolia, Raspberry, Bourgeon de Cassis, Pink Pepper, Saffron, Madagascar Vanilla, Patchouli, Vetiver, Jasmine, Magnolia.
There's actually no value listed for this item and that's kind of weird.
Prtty Peaushun Skin Tight Body Lotion- I'm not a big fan of body lotion, I have to admit. This has an intriquing sort of dispenser but it's sort of weird. Reviews for this on Amazon are terrible and site greasiness, staining of clothing and a perpetual tacky feeling. So yeah. Not using it. Plus, it's not going to tighten your skin or any of the other ridiculous claims it makes. It's a basic (and apparently sticky and staining) lotion.
Value: $39
Elizabeth Cole Jewelry Adelia Cuff- This is the spoiler I was worried about. I feared it would be gaudy and too big but instead it's perfectly sized (and apparently moderately adjustable) and looks sparkly and fun, not garish at all. I love it. It's super comfortable to wear and the slate gray stones basically go with everything!
It's made with Swarovski crystals and 24k antiqued gold plate.
Value: $167
Butter London Lip Service- Ahh! So preeetty! I love basically anything for the lips. These Butter London Lippy Liquid Lipsticks are calling my name! They're highly pigmented with a 2-in1 formula delivering lasting colour and shine. There are four colors and they're all shades of pink:
Fruit Cake (Set Exclusive!) - Berry, Creme (my fave)
Pudding (Set Exclusive!) - Rosy Pink, Creme
Tea with the Queen - Pinkish Tan, Creme
Toff - Dark Rose Pink, Creme
Value: $29
Nima Oberoi Lunares Orb Candlestick Holders- These are heavy! They're handcrafted, won't tarnish or break and hold the candles that also came in this box. I believe these are made of aluminum. They aren't hideous but they are aren't too glamorous. Not that I'm a glamorous person but I like a little pizazz. I'm glad it's a pair.
Value: $69
Et Al Designs Dot Candles- These candlesticks are handpainted with sparkly silver dots. They're perfect for holiday decorating. I'm really glad they came with holders because the only ones I have are solid silver antique candalabras that we got for our wedding and are too... just too-too to actually use. Maybe if I lived in a castle. I think I'm actually going to put these up somewhere because why not? :D
With the holders, it makes it much easier to use them. They've got an 11 hour burn time.
Value: $22

VERDICT: Well, I do have to say that this box didn't wow me like last years. But it's not a terrible box. It's lacking in pizazz but everything except the Prtty Peaushun and the Estee Lauder perfume will be used (and those will be gifted- well, maybe not the lotion. I don't want to sic that on anyone unawares) so the value is there for me.

If you would like to get this box for yourself or as a gift, there are still boxes available. You can pick one up right here. Coupons won't work on the special editions (currently) but if you'd like to sign up for the monthly Popsugar Must Have Box (which I highly recommend), make sure to use code MUSTHAVE5 or REFER5 for $5 off! See below if you're reading this before 11:59pm on 12/15!

  1. YESSS HOW AWESOME IS THAT HEADBAND? Hands down my favorite thing in the box. :D I think that, along with the bracelet, makes up for the rest of the box. But I'm still sad that there was no food item. :(

    Anyway, eh. :p I'll just wait for my "For Him" box to arrive instead.

    1. Yep, I love it so much! And the "for him" box was definitely better. Definitely.
