My April 2013 Vellvette Box!

 

Hey everyone!

I received my April Vellvette box this afternoon and I was really excited to see the contents of this month’s box. From body care, skin care to makeup – this is perhaps the best box in terms of variety! The brands of course are once again not what I call premium but value-wise, this is a pretty fantastic box!

The Maxfactor lipstick alone costs Rs 750, so value-wise, I’m quite happy with the box. The Maxfactor lipstick I got with my box was not brand-new, the bullet had swatch markings on it. I tweeted about it and got a call from the Vellvette team within a few minutes apologizing for the mistake. They sent out a new piece of the same shade through an office boy immediately and I received it along with an apology note in a few hours.

I’m quite happy with their prompt response to the situation and I hope the same service is extended to every customer – blogger or otherwise. That aside, I do hope they check each product before its put in the box to ensure that its brand new and unused.

I’ve been a regular subscriber of the Vellvette box since its launch last year and I’ve had a decent experience so far. The brands included aren’t always high end and you don’t always get products you love but most boxes deliver good products valuewise. Either way, it gives me a chance to try out new products/brands and I feel Rs 400 per month is a reasonable amount. This month’s box seems to be one of the best so far and I can’t wait to try out the products!

  1. hey ankita… the velvette team is indeed very nice and they respond very well. but i seriously doubt on the shelf life of full size products they send out.
    love the surprise element of the concept!!

  2. u hv got a gr8 box..

    looks like gras palette is gonna be staple in all the boxes this month..

    i m loving tat lippie… wish i too get it in mine 🙂

  3. I did not like m Vellvette box solely because i received figs and rouge lip balm which i had already received in my feb box *fuming with anger*

  4. HI Ankita,

    I too got my first subscription of VELVETTE Box and i got Figs & Rouge Spearmint Balm instead of your Max lipstick. need to try out. lets see.

  5. Awesome! I got a Max factor mascara instead of that lipstick. Otherwise it’s the same. The lipstick in your box looks gorgeous. <3

  6. Ankita your’s awesome..!!
    I was very excited while opening my box but also disappointed- 1. because i was expecting some Lush- Aqua Marine Cleanser OR Clarin Samples not that Mary Kay 🙁
    -2. Mary Kay Night Cream tube was so tightly intact that the round black screw cap was not opening at all.. Neither my mom or brother could open it , and result was half of the cream squeeze out from the back end and skipp fall on floor and hence, I have to store the rest left over in a separate container… this is kinda annoying ..

  7. Hi, I haven’t seen that Motives palette in years, literally. Not sure where they got it but our brand was rebranded, reformulated and repackaged with black in 2008 so please be careful where you get product from. This is not a true representation of the current designer quality of Motives Cosmetics so I just had to post. All my best, great blog.
