Product Review: Lilac Box 4 (August 2013)

I got it! I got it!I got it finally! I’ve tried to subscribe the Lilac Box for the past 2 months but everybody seem like act faster than me and the box was sold out within an incredibly short period. This month I’ve subscribed to receive their latest update and when they announced the latest box 4 was opened for subscription, I stayed in front of my laptop and clicked “PURCHASE” once the clock struck 10 on that Saturday morning! *kiasu mode ON*

As a first-timer to Lilac Box, I’ve learnt that it contains a selection of beauty and cosmetic products only from premium and luxury brands and called it “Blind Date in a Box”. Are you ready to see my gorgeous blind date at my door step?

I was like WOW when I saw a OPI nail polish in the box, make the $ I paid very well worthy, hehe 😛 However I have a similar colour in my nail lacquer collection (but different brand) 🙁

There is different colour of OPI nail lacquer in each box, what did you get?
