I love the perfume sample, it reminds me of sandalwood, and nag champa, and something sweet too, maybe tonka bean? But it manages to not smell like a head shop.

I like the lipstick, but wish it was less sheer.

I haven't tried the face oil, but I like that it's small, it'll be nice if I need to travel at some point. And I'll probably just use the massage oil on my hands as a moisturizer while watching TV, I'm not a massage kinda person.

Overall though I'm impressed by the quality of the products for the price, and I'm keeping my subscription.

I agree- this was a good Petit Vour box. I haven't tried the lipstick yet but it looks like a good color for me, kinda glad to hear it's sheer actually. I used the massage oil and face oil last night and they both seem great. High quality stuff.

I love Elixery lipsticks! That does sound like an awesome box. I'm super tempted to sign up for PV... gah.

I only ordered a trial PV box and forgot to sign up so I didn't get this month's. Boo.

I finally went home from NYC and got my Vegan Cuts box. I got the MP eyeliner and I'm thrilled because it's similar to the UD eyeliner I have been looking for a replacement for. I'm going to do one more month then maybe cancel.

Poll: was anyone weirded out by the lube sample in last month's Vegan Cuts box? I wasn't, and really didn't think anything of it, but some people on youtube who got review boxes (meaning for free) dissed the box because of it. Like, grown married women. I'm kind of a prude in my personal life, so it was surprising to me that so many people would be downright offended by it.

I was not weirded out. I didn't really think anything of it, except, "hey, lube!" It's not like it was an organic vegan ball gag.

the pv perfume sample smells nice but it did not really last on me. :/

got my vegancuts beauty box today! i have what appears to be "bonus" manic panic lip gloss (not on the card, although i'm missing something that IS on the card), but that's cool because i like it. it smells yummy.

i also got a pink eyeshadow that i will NEVER use, so if you want it, let me know! the brand is concrete, the color is hustle. full size mineral shadow.

I hope mine is waiting for me! Did you ever get a shipping notice? All I got was an email a few days ago saying it would be shipping later than usual.

Bluedawg, that color actually looks like something I totally would wear, so if I get something you'd like maybe we can swap?

i got the same email, so this was a lovely surprise to have it waiting for me! i'd be happy to send you this eye shadow, just DM me your address! (unless you still live where you lived a billion trillion years ago during the peppermint ritter sport days, in which case i still have it)

I do not! DMing now. I will totally send you something in return. Mini-swap!

Also I just got really sad all over again about how those Ritter Sports aren't vegan anymore.

My box came! I got a full-sized Manic Panic mascara, too, which isn't on the card at all. So that's a super nice surprise. I'm really happy with everything in this box, actually - I got the eyeshadow in Troublemaker, which looks like a nice medium brown that I will totally wear, and I've been wanting to try Concrete Minerals. My Bare Bones cleanser leaked a tiny bit, but nothing major, and it was bagged separately, so it's not big deal. I'm not sure the shade of the All Natural Face cream blush (Dusky Rose) is one I'd have picked for myself, but I'm happy to be able to try out the product because I've considered ordering some in the past.

P.S. Bluedawg, I hope you got my PM, it's kind of lingering in my Outbox so I don't even know.

(just got it, and just replied! whee!)

my bare bones cleanser leaked a bit, too. thankfully it was confined to the separate little bag, so nothing else got wet.

I got the brown eyeshadow too, I quickly swatched it and the blush on my hand and there is a smattering of glitter in it.

The only thing I don't like is the perfume or whatever sample (i'm buried under cats right now so I can't look), I got the geranium scent which smells like old lady. I really hate that smell. I have two of the MP lipglosses already, but not this color. And I have and like one All Natural Face blush so i'm happy to get another!

Super disappointed in this month's Petit Vour box. The perfume samples are cool, but all the tiny little skincare samples are unimpressive, I have zero interest in the raw food bar, and the Glam Natural lip cream has no pigmentation at all, and dries out my lips.

If I'm not more impressed next month I'm cancelling my subscription.

eta: So the spot on my hand where I swatched the lip cream is now turning red and burning, which has never happened to me before. Not even with DuWop Lip Venom or other plumpers. Blerg.

Whoa, that's scary! I looked at their website and the 'shop online' tab takes you to amazon, but they do have the ingredients listed:

http://www.amazon.com/GlamNatural-Lip-C ... 08&sr=1-11

I actually had a nightmare last week that this month's VC beauty box showed up and was half food.

I know, and I've been exposed to pretty much all those ingredients before with no issue. I dunno if I've ever had anything with berry wax, but I don't have berry allergies or anything. I binned it, but it was still a bummer.

On the upside my Cult Nails order showed up, and my Neuma hair masque. So the crappy box was less of a downer since I had other fun stuff.

I cancelled my PV box. I am not going to get swayed by anymore boxes, I just never really get into them. Done!

The PV box was not the best not the worst (maybe the pretty packaging saved it). I have not used anything yet...I am not really into seeing samples listed under the $1 price point.
