Another day (or should I say hour?), another surprise. This time, the new launch I want to talk to you about rather than post that review I have at the top of the list of things I want to talk about comes from Net-a-Porter.
It is great that Net-a-Porter is finally launching a new beauty kit as it has been way too long, but don’t get upset with me if I express my disappointment repeatedly about the fact that the advent calendar while still in stock for the UK, it has yet to launch for the EU. It is supposedly “coming soon”. Soon when? On Christmas Day? If it ever launches for the EU, unless it launches by sometime next week, we won’t receive it in time for the 1st of December. I probably would not either way as there are two national holidays where I am so…. They should have not said it would become available in the first place. Sorry about that!
Let’s have a look at the new beauty kit and I will do my best to keep my frustrations for myself. Do we have a deal? 🙂

This new beauty kits contains pretty much a bit of everything you would need to get ready to party. Do people still do that? Kidding. However, since I have never been that kind of person – I am more of a dinner and conversation kind of gal, I do not have the same level of appreciation others might have for this kind of kits. Give my skincare over makeup any day, but some makeup is pretty dreamy though.
Content wise, I kinda like the selection included in this particular kit. The Lixir Electrogel Cleanser is a nice cleanser. There is nothing special about it in my opinion, but it does the job and does it alright. The cleanser is also pretty nice on the skin and does not strip it too much. For the Westman Atelier Highlight Stick I left a link above with my review, but this is a product that I do enjoy even though I did not have the chance to showcase since I got it late last year… While I do have my issues with the brand, the product itself is luxurious and has high potential for those who are not looking for powder based, super glittery highlighters. It is elegant and pretty, giving you just enough of a glow without it standing out.
The Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist is a great mist and quite versatile. I love using it to prep my face and add a bit of hydration, but I also love using it on top of makeup to make my makeup look more natural. I do not think it works all that well as a setting spray. The spraying mechanism could be an issue as well (I do not recall whether this size or the full size feels like a hose…).
The Wonder Beauty Baggage Claim Mask are these super cute gold, paper thin eye masks. They look cute and they do work to some extent, but they are not that extraordinary. This is a great way to try them and get them out of your system. The product is nice to have and use, but not to purchase.
I feel I should not even get into the whole R+Co thing. I am not 100% certain I ever used this particular product from hem, but when the brand first popped up at Harvey Nichols, I got enough products from them to cover the conditions of the infamous gift with purchase… Safe to say that I hated every single one. Cool packaging, but products were a let down. I would rather get IGK over R+Co every single time.
This is about it content wise.
Still, the kit is a good option both for oneself or to give as a gift in case you have no idea what to get someone (significant others that was a hint, in case you missed it). You will definitely get your money’s worth with this one, but now it comes down to personal preferences. I think I made it pretty clear from the start that I am going to skip this one, but it does not mean you should do so as well.
