Review – marie claire The Parcel Autumn ’16

Wow, not sure but I think I must be one of the first(s) to have received the Autumn The Parcel this morning before I went to work! I can’t help myself, I had to have a quick look, just a sneaky peek! I reserved the full ooh’s and aaah’s for when I came home.

It just does not seem that long since I received the Summer one, especially as this Autumn feels so much hotter than Summer actually did! Boy, Sydney has been hot!


So as a recap, I renewed my subscription from last year and received a discount as a bonus: 4 boxes for $80. This is my 3rd for this renewal. The Spring Edit was not worthy of a review, but the Summer one made up for it!


Last year, I LOVED all 4 of them:

What is the Parcel?

“Curated by our beauty editors, The Parcel by marie claire is a luxury beauty box containing deluxe samples and new releases from leading beauty brands delivered direct to your door four times a year.”

So let me tell you about the Autumn one.

Call me picky, but I expected more Autumn ish picture on the sleeve to reflect what is in the box. Otherwise it looks just as pretty as every other one!

Inside, an expensive looking black box, with the products wrapped up in black tissue.

There is a little pamphlet describing each product in the box as well.

My favourite item(s):

I love that the contents of the box really reflects Autumn colours, everything is coordinated. Gotta love that. The OPI is a beautiful russet colour and I can’t wait to wear it.  I have never heard of the Gilded Cage cosmetics, but after seeing the packaging, the colour and the quality of this product, I will investigate further!




You did good marie claire.  Can’t wait to get stuck into the goodies tomorrow morning. Already planning my make up around that gorgeous red lippy!
