Bella Box VS Lust Have It November 2012 + $200 Firmoo Giveaway Winners!

So today I have the BellaBox and Lust Have It November beauty boxes comparison post - yes I know this post is a little delayed because I didn't have enough time to write it up before I headed off to Melbourne for a week! But I guess it is better late than never right?! 

As per usual, BellaBox (BB) came about a week or so earlier than Lust Have It (LHI). Although I still find it quite weird that BB arrives first considering LHI deducts payment from my bank account for the box during the first week of the month and doesn't arrive until the last week. Whilst BB takes payment during the 2nd week and arrives on the 3rd.

The boxes had a similar theme happening once again, where the products included in the box will help with the upcoming summer/party season. In my opinion a few of the products included in the boxes this month were a tad off them. 

Although I received quite a lovely range of products in this months BB I feel a tad disappointed.

- Swisse Hand Cream with Vitamin F and Pomegranate 30mL
- Ocean Essence Gold Eye Cream 15g
- Palmolive Luscious Mango Body Butter Wash 50mL
- 4me Nail Polish Remover Pads 30 pads
- Bioderma Sebium H20 Cleansing Water 20mL
- OrganicSpa Face Exfoliant 7g
- Bloom Glitter Liquid Eyeliner 4g

From comparing what I received to what others were given, I feel as though I was short changed. From memory, I believe others received a beautiful pink blush instead of the glitter liner by Bloom - which would have suited me much better as I'm a big lover of cheek products.

Also, instead of the Ocean Essence Eye Cream others received a face mask, which again I would have loved. Obviously, you can't pick out and choose which products you receive in each box, but I really wish you could! Anyways enough whinging, all the products do look and sound lovely but I just would have loved to received a few alternatives. 

Now for LHI, the products I received include:

- Orly Flash Dry Drops 5.3mL
- Orly smartGELS coupon
- Sasy n Savy Floral Spray 30mL
- GKMBL Soothing and Nourishing Shampoo 30g
- GKMBL Soothing Honey Moisturising Conditioner 30g
- Star&Rose Hologram Tweezer
- ModelCo Fibre Lashxtend Mascara 

I'm actually very impressed with this months products. LHI have usually disappointed me, but luckily for this month, there are a lot of winners! I cannot wait to try out the Orly fast dry drops and the ModelCo fibre lashxtend. The Orly dry drops will certainly come in handy for me as I absolutely HATE waiting for my nails to dry!

Overall, I think Lust Have It have won this months beauty box battle. Their products were more suited towards my own preferences, so obviously this verdict will depend on the particular person. Please let me know if you've tried these products already and how you liked them! 

Now onto the $20 Firmoo giveaway winners. The winners include:
