Unboxing the Project Vanity Bridal Kit

Unboxing the Project Vanity Bridal Kit

This is a month overdue :| I bought the Project Vanity Bridal Kit (PHP 875) last July 8, during the Beauty Discovery, but I kept fermenting it because I wanted to do a live unboxing. I wanted y'all to see some kind of expression on my deadpan, deadass face, and the only way to keep it somewhat authentic is to actually be unboxing it for the first time. So it's been unopened since the day I got it :[ I changed my mind and decided to post it instead!

I've been passing on the past PV kits simply because I could! But this time they have a cute sampler lip palette and I'm not going to try to justify anything else. Yes I did buy the kit just for that one little thing. #ownit

Here's the contents in order of my favorites.

Kanebo and Lunasol Glow Kit, PHP 700 / 9g water cream foundation, lip sample palette, 10ml cleanser, 2.8ml day cream, 2.8ml night lipid wear

Kanebo and Lunasol Glow Kit, PHP 700 / 9g water cream foundation, lip sample palette, 10ml cleanser, 2.8ml day cream, 2.8ml night lipid wear

I haven't tried soo many things from Kanebo and Lunasol to be completely praising them as no-fail brands, but every random thing I've picked up from this family of brands has been amazing. From eyeliners, to foundations, I just have a great working impression of their quality. More than the skincare, I'm excited for the color cosmetics because: 1. that foundation is my exact shade and 2. I bought the whole kit for that tiny lip palette :>

Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadow in Pearl, PHP 425 / 2.7g, Ellana Minerals Pressed Multipurpose Powder in Doll, PHP 200 / 2g, Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lip Color in Vineyard, PHP 575 / 1.7g

It was a tough decision between the first two, but I'm going with Inglot as the forerunner for now. The swatch is wonderfully complex and I haven't really had a go with Inglot yet, so I'm excited to get to know it more. Ellana Doll was surprisingly buttery, though when I first read the description of 'soft rose pink shade with subtle gold lights' I automatically had it pegged for a NARS Orgasm dupe, but it's actually way softer. Revlon Vineyard seems like a boring lip color at first, but it is 'wearable glam' and very appropriate for the kit.

Zen Zest Home Spray in Rose Petals, Orange and Mash smells exactly like Shangri-La hotels??? I love it! I wasn't expecting much from this room fragrance as the ones I've tried before tended not to stick in the air. This one, like the Shangri-La fragrance, lingers. I'm a huge fan of the actual scent as well, and I imagine if I were a real bride (well I will be part of an entourage in October) this will be great to bring along to the prep area and help calm everyone down.

Zen Zest Home Spray in Rose Petals, Orange and Mash, PHP 150 / 100ml,  Kracie Ichikami Shampoo and Conditioner Sachet Set, PHP 80 / 10ml each

Kracie Ichikami Shampoo and Conditioner Sachet Set, PHP 80 / 10ml each

I'm not generally hyped by haircare, but this review of the Kracie Ichikami Shampoo and Conditioner sounded great to me. Like Liz, I also have pretty fragile hair and it's nice to see what happens with this sachet before I commit to the huge half liter bottle.

Pink Leatherette Pouch PHP 350

I caution to add this because it seems like I'm grasping at straws, but it is a pretty huge element of the kit. It feels sturdy and is a great kikay kit size! I've learned to embrace both the color pink and my inner tita-ness, so I'm not going to be apologetic about being all for this pouch. Pouches r lyf.

Total Value: PHP 2480 for 875, or 2.8 the price

PV kits are always worth your money. The pouches are lovely and there's always enough big-ticket items to win back your investment. This particular collection has great full-sizes and I loved all deluxe samples (one more than most) so I didn't hesitate to pick it up!

 

*I purchased this kit from Project Vanity, where I am a writer. I was able to get the product with the PV discount, but I was not paid nor otherwise compensated to present this feature.
