Cosmobox June 2013 – Of Unboxing Events & Chic Cupcakes

Ooh…. Unboxing’s & Cupcakes!!! Can anyone ask for a more delightful morning. Delightful it was and fun and exciting too. What am I talking about…. Well ladies, I had the opportunity to attend Cosmobox’s first ever Unboxing last Sunday (yesterday) which was held at the divine Cupcake Chic located at The Curve, Damansara Perdana.

Cosmobox is the brainchild of two beautiful & multi-talented ladies… LeeYen & Sze Yoong. Since debuting their first Cosmobox in November of 2012, the ladies have put together box after box of beauty offerings that have tantalized and treated their subscribers nationwide. At RM 33 per box/per month, Cosmobox is without doubt one of the more affordable beauty box subscriptions available and so popular are they, their boxes are always sold out at the word Go!!!

Now for those of you who have read my reviews over the past couple of months, you will know that I have been very happy with their efforts at curating beauty products. So when I received an invitation from them to attend their first ever Unboxing event, I had to say Yes!!!

Now for the best part, when I make a list of all the items in the box…

  1. Maybelline New York – Volum’ Express Hypercurl Cat Eyes Mascara (full size) – RM 33.90
  2. L’Oreal Professional – Liss Ultime Masque, 75ml – RM 67/200ml (RM25)
  3. Murad – Resurgence Hydrating Toner, 15ml – RM 128/180ml  (RM 10.6)
  4. Murad – Essential C Day Moisturiser, 10ml – RM 330/50ml (RM 66)
  5. Collistar – Biorevitalizing Anticellulite Concentrate “Mesotherapy” Effect, 30ml – RM 185/200ml (RM27.80)
  6. b.liv by Cellnique – Off With Those Heads, 3ml – RM 139/30ml or RM 179/45ml (RM 13.9)
  7. Cosmobox by Box Culture – Natural Looking False Eyelashes. – Complimentary

There was also a voucher included:-

  • 50% off all Hair Chemical Services at Kado New Hair Saloon valid at Kota Damansara & Subang Jaya branches.

Wow!!! Check out the Amazing line-up Cosmobox offered to their subscribers for the month of June. My personal favourites were Collistar’s Anticellulite Concentrate and Maybelline’s Cat Eyes Mascara. L’Oreals Liss Ultime is one of my staples, so high-five’s for including the mask this month 🙂

I also thought the Murad items were great sized to throw in your toiletry bag en route to an exciting holiday. The toner comes in a spray bottle, so this revitalizing treatment can be used in a jiffy with no wastage. As for b.liv, they are an all time favorite not only of mine but also of many out there. Off With Those Heads is the No.1 Hot-selling blackheads serum gel and in this hot and humid weather when our pores tend to clog up, this gel will be indispensable.

I liked the falsies.. I don’t usually wear them..but I think they were a cute and thoughtful addition. What is a vacation without a party, and how better than to glam up a party look than to put on those falsies and bat them prettily at the gentleman who has caught your eye.

But really to get an idea at how great this box is, we’ll have to look at the numbers. I’ve done the math and what I’ve come up with is that this box not including the voucher comes up to an impressive RM 177.20 which is more than 5X their subscription rate of RM 33. Seriously this kind of value is more than just impressive and it is a reflection that the team at Cosmobox is very serious about putting together a box that will delight and surprise you.

And talking about surprises … for the month of July, Cosmobox will team up with Lisa Lee of Liselle to launch the second installment of the Collector’s Editions series. I’ve already subscribed for mine and if you want to get your hands on the 2nd box in their Collector’s Edition, head on here to secure the July Cosmobox for yourself before it sells out.

Thank You Cosmobox & Cupcake Chis for an Awesome Unboxing !!!

  1. Another amazing writeup Sharon! Totally adore your way with words!

    I had so much fun with you and the lovely ladies too! It was indeed an awesome unboxing! Awesome pics btw! 😉

    In addition, I was so happy to be at the unboxing and receive my June Cosmobox because as I was about to renew my subscription, the June box was sold out! You can imagine my disappointment! So glad to secure myself a June Cosmobox which is amazing! Can’t wait to try out all the goodies!

    See ya soon dearie! XOXO

    • Oh Kay..such lovely words..Thank You!!! Yea,good fun yesterday… I just subscribed for the July Cosmobox. Dont want to miss out on their 2nd Collectors Edition this July and cant wait to try on the Collistar… looking forward to seeing all this cellulite take a hike 😛

      • Hahaha.. I’m already looking forward to the July box. Immediately subscribed when I received an email that the June box were sold out. Plus, July’s one a Collector’s Edition, right? They’re always extra amazing! Lol..

    • Well that’s 33 off your next purchase..but on the bright side the July Collectors Edition is open for a one time sub…so grab one and see whether it works for you..if it does..then it’s 33 off every month 😛

  2. Hi Sharon, glad to see your posts getting more and more by the day…
    So many fun event, happenings and reviews… I feel so excited while reading your blog posts.
    The Giant cupcake looks so huge…
    I was at the curve on the Sunday too but did not pass Cupcake Chic. I was at Mcdonalds instead.
    If I knew I would sneak a peak and see the fun…
    Saw the above comments that July Cosmobox is going to be really good. Is it so?
    Gosh…I’m going to be a beauty box-holic already…

    • Hey Nadia..thanks for the thumbs up!!! Oooh, You were so near on Sunday… how nice if you could have come by as McDonalds is just around the corner. The July Cosmobox is supposed to be the 2nd installment in their Collectors Edition. Remember the Plasterdoll Box, that was the 1st Edition. The good thing is this box is available for a 1 month subscription, so you can always get one first and then think about a longer commitment later.
      P/S: Thanks for posting the picture..so sweet!!!

      • Oh…then I better secure 1 box just in case I regret for not subscribing.
        Regret for not subscribing to the plasterdoll collector’s edition.

  3. Thank you for this review, Sharon. I love, love, love what’s inside the June CosmoBox but I just found out that my subscription fell into the July period 😦 so I miss out (I am so bad with dates!) but I am consoled somewhat by your gorgeous review of the goodies and the Unboxing party. I shall live the June CosmoBox vicariously through you.
    I have been reading a lot of reviews of beauty boxes and I am consistently excited by contents of all the CosmoBoxes. I am super-excited about the next collector’s edition CosmoBox. Only four more weeks to go…

    • Hi ShopGirl…Sorry to hear that you did not manage to secure the June CosmoBox. From what I understand Cosmoboxes are limited and generally sell out way in advance so it’s really great that you’ve already secured your July Box. I too cant wait for the July Collectors Edition and am impatiently ticking the days away… we should both be getting a bag in a package tomorrow ..cant wait to hear what you think of it !!!
