We don’t have too many details on this yet, but it looks like POPSUGAR has teamed up with QVC for a special box!  The QVC POPSUGAR Must Have Box is coming to QVC (and QVC.com) on May 29th!  I will post more details as I hear of them, but be ready because this will sell out fast!

CFDA + POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Box

POPSUGAR Must Have Box is an exciting monthly box full of fun, must-have picks across fashion, beauty, home decor, fitness, and more, which is delivered to your door on a monthly basis. Boxes include full-size products and premium items including tried-and-true classics, celebrity favorites, and brands consumers have yet to discover worth over $100!  On occasion, they also offer Special Edition one-time purchase boxes which are separate from the monthly subscription. This is the CFDA + POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Box which sold for $195.  It’s the first collaboration they have done with CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) and the box sold out in less than 2 hours.  If you aren’t familiar, the CFDA is a not-for-profit association consisting of more than 450 of America’s top designers who have joined together for one common goal: to strengthen American designers’ influence and success globally.  50 percent of the profits of this box were given to the CFDA Foundation as well.

The Box

POPSUGAR Must Have Box ships via FedEx Smart Post and took over a week to arrive.  This shipped from the West Coast and may have stopped in every state along the way.

The CFDA + POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Box

Everything was packaged in a large fancy (well fancier than their normal monthly boxes) black box.

First Look

As usual with their special edition boxes everything was individually wrapped.  Mine kind of looked like it’d been wrapped, unwrapped and then rewrapped.  Not a huge deal I guess, but I totally noticed.

The Information Card

The CFDA + POPSUGAR Must Have box included the following items:

~Maiyet Poison Dart Earrings ($295): The information card lists these earrings at $395, but they are listed on the Maiyet website for $295 right now.  From what I have heard these originally were listed on the Maiyet website for $395, but the price was reduced somewhere along the way.  Anyway, regardless if they were $295 or $395, I would expect them to be real gold, not just gold-plated brass.  Also, I am not sure what to think about putting over half the value of the box into one item.  One item that everyone might not be able to use no less.  I do love the style of them though and I will (can) wear them.

~Anna Sui Lipstick (401) ($30): This might just be the most beautiful lipstick packaging ever.  It’s gorgeous.  And the star shaped lipstick?  Fantastic.  My sister-in-law is going to flip for this.

Anna Sui Lipstick

~Marc by Marc Jacobs Logo Bangle ($80): Meh. I am not excited or disappointed with this.  It’s a cute bangle, but it’s for sure not an exclusive item or anything. In fact, I have heard that you can find them at TJMaxx.  It does fit my wrist though so for that reason alone I like it better than the one I received in the Rachel Zoe box.

~MILLY Nail Polish Set (Coral, Bride to Be and Sangria) ($36): I can’t find any evidence of MILLY Nail Polish online anywhere so I can only guess this is a special thing?  I love nail polish and I like the variety of colors in here.  I think I am going to use the Coral next time I do my nails.

Milly Nail Polish Set

~The Woman I Wanted To Be by Diane von Furstenberg ($17.77): I would have preferred a piece of clothing or an accessory from DVF, but I’ll check out her book.

~Apolis+Claire v. Market Bag ($68): I love this tote.  Like I LOVE it.  It is, hands down, my favorite item from this box.  It’s huge (it’s the same size as a grocery bag) and sturdy and super stylish.  The inside is coated (and waterproof) so you don’t have to worry about getting anything caught in the canvas and the straps are a vegetable-tanned leather!  This bag seriously rocks.  If you see one up for trade somewhere, grab it!

The Back

All totaled I came up with a value of $526.77 for the CFDA + POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Box.  That falls short of the $600+ promised value for this box, mainly due to the value of the earrings.  Because of that (and other reasons I am sure), POPSUGAR is offering refunds on this box.  If you are not 100% happy with it, you can return the box (with all of the contents unused) for a full refund.  Just shoot over an e-mail to [email protected] and they will send you a return shipping label.  I believe this has to happen by 5/27 so you have a bit of time to decide.  That said I decided to keep my box.  I love the tote and the nail polish and my sister-in-law will love the lipstick.  And the rest of the items will make up the rest of the $195 value to me.

What did you think of the CFDA + POPSUGAR Special Edition Must Have Box?  Are you keeping it or did you decide to return?  As I mentioned this box is sold-out, but you can still snag a monthly subscription to POPSUGAR. New subscribers can use coupon code “WELCOME” to get a free Sorial Wallet on a Chain (from the November 2014 POPSUGAR Must Have Box) or “MUSTHAVE5” to save $5 off their first box.  If you check the “Waitlist” button, you’ll get a May 2015 box (i.e. this one) if they happen to have any left.  If you don’t check it, your subscription will begin in June!

Based on what I am hearing, POPSUGAR is offering FULL refunds (so long as the contents of the box are unused) on the CFDA + POPSUGAR Must Have Box.  From my understanding you have to shoot them over an over at [email protected] and they will send you a return shipping label.  A lot of people were super disappointed with the spoilers (and the discrepancy in the earring prices), so this is awesome of them!

My May 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box is here!  My mailman had a lot of good packages for me today, but I went for this one first.

The Box

POPSUGAR Must Have Box ships via FedEx Smart Post and took under a week to arrive. I think SmartPost changed up their routes recently because this box didn’t have as many stops as normal.

As usual I peeked at spoilers for this box so I knew what was going to be inside.  I don’t know if I have ever been (or will be) spoiler free for POPSUGAR.

The Information Card

The May 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box was inspired by “Glowing Skin, Mother’s Day, Fresh Flowers, Beach Bum, Colorful, California Sun” and included the following items:

~Sisters of Los Angeles Surf Sand Love Beach Towel ($40): I spread this out to take a picture and WB tested it right out for me.  The beach towel is super cute and we’ll get a ton of use out of it.

~Middle Kingdom Mini Plum Vase in Coral Red ($20): At first I wasn’t sure about this, but I think I like it.  I don’t know that I have ever gotten a vase in a subscription box, so that’s fun.  Plus it will give me an excuse to buy flowers at the grocery store when I am there.

~Kitsch Tri’d & True Y-Shaped Necklace ($32): Love this!  It’s delicate, but still very eye catching.  And I like that it can be worn pretty much anywhere.

~Batiste Dry Shampoo ($4): Not overly exciting, but I do love dry shampoo.  This stuff smells good works well.  I will stick it in my travel bag.

~Sage & Row Bare Shave Cream ($17): Am I the only one who doesn’t use shaving cream?  I never do!  But since this is included I will use it.

~Hammond’s Candies McCraw’s Flat Taffy ($1):  I am not totally sure what flavor this is, but I don’t know that it matters.  I can never taste the difference in Taffy flavors anyway.

All totaled I came up with a value of $114 for the May 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box.  I liked this box well enough and feel like I got my money’s worth, but it certainly wasn’t my favorite POPSUGAR box to date.

What do you think of the May box?  If you sign up now you can begin your subscription with the June 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box  (which is inspired by “Yoga-Warrior, Sun-Kissed, Outdoor Fun and Coconut”)!
