Popsugar Must Have August 2016 Subscription Box Review and Coupon

When Popsugar puts a treat in their Must Have box, they don't mess around. Wow. Talk about addicting. This month's box was a complete surprise other than the original spoiler of the Cargo Blush. I thought the blush was kinda boring but the rest of the items this month made up for it. In spades. Or should I say spots...
The theme for this month was "motivation, organization, order, fresh transition and back-to-school." Maybe I should say 'inspiration' instead of theme. It's pretty loose but I never really care about themes anyway.

The Cost: $39.99/month

What You Get: Full size, premium products dealing with Home, Fashion, Fitness, Beauty and Food.

Cargo Cosmetics Powder Blush in The Big Easy- This is a sheer pink blush with grapefruit undertones. It looks pretty light but it feels a little orangey to me and I don't do orange.
Value: $26
Cookie Pop Popcorn in Cookies and Cream- This stuff is... addiction in a bag. It's not quite as good as the Popcornopolis Toasted Coconut (seriously, get some. i found it at Whole Foods) but it's pretty freaking tasty. I ate some and shared with my husband. I came back down and it was gone. That'll teach me to share.
Value: $4
BAGGU Duck Bag- The hilarious thing is I already had this duck bag from the Nina Garcia Quarterly box. In leopard. I managed to swap it for a blue one. Aaand it's baaaack! I find this hideously ugly but I know that for some people, leopard is THE thing so I shouldn't have too much of a problem swapping this. Hopefully for a blue stripe or the black and white one in the info card.
Value: $26
Triple C PowerGloss in Silver- This is a lot more portable than the one I have now but it probably isn't quite as awesome either. It *has* to be better than that horrible HISY one we got in FabFitFun. That thing was awful and overheated within five minutes every time! Worthless. This one will get some use testing while I look for Pokemon.
Value: $30
Christian LaCroix Paris Paseo Sticky Note Folio- I thought this was a journal notebook at first but it's not. No. It's way better than that. It is a sticky note book! Full of sticky notes! I love sticky notes (seriously, you should see my desk/monitor/fridge). Pretty colors, too.
The embossing is fun, too. Now I can fashionably sticky note things.
Value: $13
UnPlugged Dusti Screen Cleaner- Aww, these are cute. I need one for my Galaxy Note (Samsung's iPad). I think the cloud is my favorite.
Value: $6

VERDICT: I thought this was kind of a weird collection of items but I liked them all. I mean, I don't like the leopard print of the duck bag but other than that it's fine. The value is, as usual, over $100 which is pretty awesome. Popsugar really does find some great products to put in these boxes so they're always fun for me. Sure, I don't love everything all the time but I do like most of the things most of the time which is better than I can say about a lot of boxes.

If you would like to sign up for Popsugar Must Have, you can do that here. Make sure to use coupon code REFER5 or MUSTHAVE5 to get $5 off your first box.

What print did you get on your bag? I've seen leopard and the black and white one so far.
