First off, let me just say how excited I was to FINALLY get this! Mail was delayed for a few days because of the crazy weather but it seems like the worst is over.
UPDATE: LuxePineapple does not currently have the option to create your on Box of Joy as I was able to. They will be releasing other boxes soon so be sure you’re following them on Instagram and Twitter!
What is LuxePineapple?
LuxePineapple is not a subscription service. They release about 3-4 different Boxes of Joy , filled with beauty products, each month and they’re available until supplies last. From my knowledge, they seem to sell out super quick! They also release Mystery Boxes of Joy from time to time, and the ones I’ve seen so far have included incredible products! Some brands LuxePineapple includes in their boxes and shop are Mac, Laura Geller, Too Faced, Kiehls, Lancome, Tarte – and according to their Instagram, they’ll be including Urban Decay and NYX products soon!
A great thing about LuxePineapple is that they offer some awesome deals in their shop – as you’ll see with my Box of Joy!
When I first visited their website, I thought it was too good to be true since some high end products had such a huge discount! They included this explanation as to how they offer low prices:
We work the same way that large retailers like TJ MAXX do. It’s not a secret. Manufacturers liquidate overstocks, discontinueds, excess testers, or “old” packaging after a package update. We buy in big quantities and pass along the savings to you. We keep our overhead low so we’re able to keep our prices low too. We DO NOT buy shelf pull items, we DO NOT buy product from China, we DO NOT buy “fake” products. After working in professional beauty for a decade it took me a year prior to our launch to find and vet our vendors. We think we have the greatest products at the best prices and work hard daily to keep it this way.
Not all Boxes of Joy cost the same price, the ones I’ve seen so far cost from $10 – $25. The Build Your Own Boxes have various prices since you get to decide on how many item you’d like to include! My favorite thing about LuxePineapple is that shipping is FREE – but only in the US. If you live outside of the US, you can email them and they’ll give you a quote on shipping.
Onto my box!
I was originally going to review one of the pre-made Boxes of Joy from LuxePineapple but when they came out with the ”build your own box” option, they asked me if I’d rather try that! Although I did get to choose the items, LuxePineapple gave me store credit in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
The packaging is gorgeous! I love the box they put it in – it reminded me of Birchbox and the way they tied it up reminded me of Glossybox!
I noticed some of my products were covered with some dust or something – not sure what it was.
My box came with this cute card and I think keychain they added was super cute!
Laura Geller Accessor-Eyes Inkwell Waterproof Gel Liner & WOW Factor Mascara – $20.00
Too Faced Exotic Color Intense Eyeshadow in Enchanted Garden – $17.00
I’ve never owned any Laura Geller products so I was really excited when I saw this in the shop! I thought it was perfect to get since I just finished the gel liner I was using and the mascara will probably be given to my mom since she goes through them super quick.
I love Too Faced and I just HAD to have this shadow, it’s such a pretty shimmery dark brown! They had tons of other colors in their shop when I purchased this one but many of them have sold out since I last checked.
Kleancolor Kabuki Brush – $4.50
Kiehls Mahvelous Muave Lip Gloss – $6.50
I thought this Kabuki Brush was cute and I’ve never tried this brand before. The bristles aren’t super soft and you can see from the photo that the hairs are already starting to come off – but it was only $4.50 so I wasn’t expecting it to be luxurious.
I know the Kiehls lip gloss is discontinued I wanted to check it out anyways so I thought why not?!
The total price of my box was $48.00 but stop – wait a minute! (am I the only one who laughed? yes? okay moving on)
With the Build Your Own Box of Joy – you can use coupon code “CUSTOMBOX” to get 50% off your order BUT you have to have $30 of items in your cart!
So the total cost of my box was $24 with free shipping (do you hear angels singing because I do!)
For the price, I think it’s a great deal! I do wish I waited to place my order though because they just added some Mac Blushettes for $12.50! Who knows though, I may build another box just for those!
Anywho, I do recommend checking out LuxePineapple if you’d like to purchase beauty products at a discounted price and don’t mind if it’s old packaging or whatnot!
I’m definitely looking forward to the NYX box they announced on Twitter – which should be coming out in a few weeks!
