Box: Popsugar Must Have x Nieman Marcus Limited Edition Box
Cost: $275 as a one time purchase [plus $28.60 tax to WA, totaling $303.60]
What to Expect: “Co-curated by POPSUGAR founder and President Lisa Sugar and Neiman Marcus Fashion Director Ken Downing, this box contains an opulent mix of surprises you can keep for yourself or gift to loved ones” worth $800.
My sister and I decided to purchase this box together, partially with the hopes we’d each find something we wanted, and partially to sell the rest.
Although, she still owes me that $150…
This was one of the items that I bought during my spending spree in October/November… and it set off a credit card alert from my bank, haha!
This purse is lovely, but way too glamorous for me. I thought my sister would like it, and so did she. But, alas. It’s lack of strap makes it basically useless ;p
I would leave this ALL of the places!
Dannijo Lotus Necklace: $120, made with Swarovski® crystals
This is very gorgeous. Alas, I have nothing to wear something like this to. I work in a school that does not require formal attire, then I come home, read, and fall asleep… I do not live a glamorous life at all =( I also usually wear v-neck or strange neck shirts that either don’t show my cleavage or go all the way up to my neck, so this would likely look peculiar with my clothing choices!!
However, if you click the link above I’d prefer almost any other necklace from Dannijo, and often find that is the case from PS jewelry!!
Atelier Cologne Clémentine California Cologne Absolue: $75 1 fl. oz. Sweet, citrusy fruit, juniper, the tang of mandarin, star anise, pepper blends, Haitian vetiver, sandalwood, and cypress.
This smells amazing! So, two Christmases ago, our awesome reader, Dayle, sent me the Atelier Cologne advent calendar that she won from the MSA advent giveaway!! I still have several sample vials, and when my sister mentioned she really liked this, I realized I had a deluxe sample so I gave her that instead so we could try to sell or swap this.
I mean, I originally wanted to sell this… but if it doesn’t sell within a month or so I miiiight keep it… It’s way cooler than I had thought!
However, I got an Alexa for Christmas… and she will tell me jokes, play music, and more! So, probably will sell it…
Tata Harper Illuminating Moisturizer: $85 1 fl. oz. “A luxurious moisturizer with a soft-focus luminescence using real diamond dust for a highlighting effect. Best for dull, dry, or mature skin.”
I’ve never understood the purpose of having diamond dust in beauty products. What does it do???
“I have radiant skin because my pores are filled with DIAMONDS!” Seems like some sort of evil villain thing. So, please explain yourselves, you diamond cream wearers!
This is gorgeous! I have another Lakur polish. Sadly, my nailpolish collection is VERY neglected because I tend to eff up my nails no matter how long I let it dry =\ Also, I have a similar color.
Maybe I’ll use some of my neglected colors today to paint my nails. But probably not…
Gorgeous colors that look nice on my skintone! Buuut, I am a VERY slow palette user. I’ve got a stack of three palettes around the same size, plus the December Deck of Scarlet which I LOVE and keep meaning to post here.
Along with the folders of hundreds of other pictures of items I’ve purchased over the years… Sigh, time for a computer cleanup!
Yeah, baaiiiii! My sister and I are half black and wear our hair naturally curly, rarely using heat [it’s made our young nieces love their golden ringlets more, and I’m so happy we can inspire young blackish women!]. So, this is up for sale. Also, what the heck, some lady offered me a fair price for this online, and I said yes then she never replied. Girl, gimme dat $$!
This could be an expensive weapon that I could keep by my head and bash in intruders’ heads. Also, totally looks like a vibrator, amirite?
I think my sister is actually keeping this. She likes fancy clothes from Nordstrom, and I prefer The Rack and The Loft.
They’re having a sale now for $250 off $1000. WAY too expensive for my taste! What’s $25 going to do? Pay some tax?
Nope, just calculated 1000-250, then did Seattle 10% tax on $750… $75 just in taxes? Gurl, bai!
So, of course then I went to go see what sort of fancy things that were in the jewelry department. What is this, Crazy Rich Asians??
Btw, the book is way better, but the movie itself is gorgeous and well done.
Verdict: The speakers and perfume [totaling $240ish] were the only items my sister and I wanted to keep out of this box, but decided not to. I wasn’t really interested in anything else! Technically, this box was a bust because my sister and I are keeping nothing and we were hoping to keep most and sell the curling iron. There just wasn’t anything shouting my name, and I’ll never need an 80 piece curling iron!
Hopefully, we’ll make some money or do some good swapping with these items though. However, apparently you can’t sell perfume, nail polish, or curling irons on Poshmark so I will try to swap those. Le sigh.
Did you grab a PSMH x NM box? What did you think? If not, take a look at the NM site and tell us which item over $1000 you’d love to have ;D
