The packaging is always the same for this box but at least, the postcard is always different.
There’s a theme, all of their social media handles, and their website on one side. On the back is a list of all of the products included in the box with a little description and their full-size prices.
What Was In My Box?!
Theme: Sparkle and Shine
Exquisite Eye Liquid Shadow in Champagne
*On my postcard, a lipstick by this brand was listed and talked about NOT this eyeshadow so I have nothing to write for Lola Claims. I did e-mail them about this mess up and they told me that I was supposed to get the lipstick this month and the eyeshadow next month so they’re just going to put the lipstick in my August box. *eye roll*
My Review: I hated this. It was IMPOSSIBLE to blend, it was streaky, and applied unevenly. It burned my lids a bit as it dried. It needs quite a few swipes back and forth to completely show up and shimmer properly. It was not easy making this look even and blended. There was such harsh lines I couldn’t get rid of.

Mini Super Sealer Mattifying Setting Spray
Lock in your look with this all-in-one makeup primer and setting spray. This light-weight anti-shine formula can be used under and/or over makeup to lock powders, liquids, and creams into place. Perfect for working in high humidity climates or under theatrical lights.
My Review: I sprayed this before makeup application and it tasted like hell. I thought I was being poisoned and truly believed I was going to die from it. It was really wet and took long to dry. Very inconvenient. It made my foundation and concealer patchy and impossible to blend – which is never the case with the regular products I use. I didn’t even spray it over everything when I was done because I was way too scared of it. Never will I use this again.

Doll 10 Beauty
Lengthens and curls so well, it should be illegal! Illegaleyes’ dual-formula combines two separate formulas in one chamber to give you the best of both worlds, unlawful length and criminal curl. One formula contains marula oil and vitamin B3 to nourish and lengthen the appearance of lashes, while the other contains a special rice bran wax to boost curl and lock lashes into place! Did we mention it volumizes too? This mascara is perfect for anyone who wants longer, fuller-looking lashes!
My Review: I thought this was a nice mascara. It really helped in elongating and darkening my lashes but, not so much with adding volume or thickness. It was a bit clumpy when I applied it but, I was able to wiggle the clumps out before they dried up. The brush helped separate my hairs and didn’t make them stick together. It did seem to be harsh on my eyes though, it burned when I wiped it off and my eye was puffy and dry the next day.

Cleansing Bar in Green Apple
Renew, revitalize, and soften your skin with this cleansing bar formulated with organic extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil, coconut oil, and a blend of apple, lemon and aloe juices. Infused with bright citrus notes to leave skin refreshed and glowing.
My Review: I don’t usually prefer bar soap, I’m more of a liquid body wash gal so I don’t have much to compare this to. It’s labeled as “green apple” but, there is absolutely no trace of apples at all… this bar smells like Whole Foods. I thought it was weird and made me sort of sticky before I washed it off with water. My skin afterwards feels the same as before use.

Jetsetter Palette Contour, Highlight, and Blush
The Aesthetica Jetsetter Palette is a trio of luxurious pressed powders including a rich bronze contour, a shimmery highlighter, and a peachy-pink blush to perfectly compliment any face. Use the silky pressed powders individually or blend them together for a soft and radiant look.
My Review: I disagree with the claims about this palette having creamy/silky powders because they all felt so dry. It took a lot of swirling my finger in the colors to make them show up on my wrist for the swatches down below yet, they appeared quite pigmented on my cheeks. I was startled by the brightness of the highlighter and the darkness of the contour; I hated how much it maximized my pores, bumps, and imperfections. There was a pamphlet included on how to use everything – I really appreciated that because never have I ever contoured my face before. I’m sure there are better trios out there that are much easier to apply and blend but, this wasn’t the worst thing in the world… I would definitely NOT pay $25 for it on its own though.

I know a lot of people complain about the customer service and shipping of this subscription but, I’ve not gotten a late box in the past two months and I have received the correct shipping info on my tracker both times. They have responded to my numerous e-mails quickly and were able to ease all of my concerns. I was a little annoyed with the products in my July box though because 2 out of the 5 were NOT even full-sized (the primer/setting spray and the bar soap). I have canceled and will be receiving my last Lola box next month.
