The Cate and Chloe September VIP Box

Press Sample: Product given by the Company for testing and reviewing purposes.

Last month I reviewed the jewelry sub box Cate & Chloe. If you want in depth details on Cate & Chloe please click here on that post to get the deets and prices:) 

I was honored to be asked again to review their September box.
It was a total surprise to me what this box entailed.
So let's get started…

The September Cate & Chloe box included 2 pieces of jewlery and a brush roll with brushes.

The first piece again comes in their signature boxes with their logo and black ribbon.

Aren't these beautiful!
These are the Ashlyn "Nature" Pearl Leaf Earrings.
From the site:
The most delightful mix of trendy and timeless.A small leaf design topped off with a cultured pearl. This classic, delicate piece is a new Cate&Chloe must-have and is sure to class up any outfit while showing off your fashion expertise. 

Product Specifications:
  • Gold plated drop earrings
  • Leaf design with pearls
  • No backings
  • $ 79.00
These gold toned earrings are very delicate and beautiful. And I like the way they looked on my ears. They felt very dainty.

The second Cate & Chloe piece is a bracelet called the Mila Dillgent 3 Layer Gold Bracelet.
 From site:
Chic, charming, and the perfect layering accessory. Featuring 3 chord strands each with an elongated curved cubic prism, this geometrically alluring bracelet is right on the mark with today's trends. Modern, simple, and easy pairing with your favorite gold jewelry!
Product Specifications:
  • Gold plated bracelet
  • Lobster clasp closure
  • 3 strands
  • $ 59.00

This bracelet is really pretty and it fit my wrist nicely.
I did find while wearing the bracelet that the curved cubic prisms moved a lot and ended up in the bottom of my wrist, which was kind of a bummer for me.
Maybe if my wrist was bigger it would have stayed in place but it's not so it moves.
Regardless, it's a pretty classy piece.

In the pics below, I'm styling Ashlyn on my ears and Mila on my wrist:)

Now for the "perk of the month" for all the subbed Vip Cate & Chloe members.
Last month it was a Sally Hansen Nail polish but this month it's a beautiful 6 piece pink brush set with the Cate & Chloe logo on each barrel. 

The brushes are nice and fluffy but I found the bristles to be flat which is different because I'm used to fluffy face brushes to have a rounded shape unlike these that are flat from the face brushes to the eyeshadow brushes. 

These will definitely work for concealer, foundation and lid application with eyeshadow but none was in the set for blending the shadow. 

Also in the set, there is an eyebrow comb/brush, an eyeliner brush which is very nice with dense bristles, and a small concealer brush as well.
The set is nicely stored in a Cate & Chloe brush roll with hot pink interior pockets and a hot pink ribbon.
Overall, this is a nice brush set but it's not the best out there but they still do their job and they are soft and not scratchy at all.

So there you have it! The Cate & Chloe September box.
