So I finally got my POPSUGAR Must Have Limited Edition Neiman Marcus box on Saturday. There were some issues with the shipping, but I’m so relieved it got worked out and I can enjoy my items. Seeing as how this box was $250, I was very nervous about anything happening to it!
This is the first time POPSUGAR and Neiman Marcus have done a collaboration like this, and I hope they continue. The price point is high, but I think it’s perfect for NM’s target audience. It was also a good idea to release it before the holidays, since I felt better knowing that I could gift any items that I didn’t love.
This box is heavy (16 lbs) and super big! Way bigger than I expected it to be. The black box shipped inside a carboard box, and it is very sturdy and reusable! It definitely felt like opening a luxury box.
Nest Fragrances Birchwood Pine Candle | $34.00
The packaging is simply stunning! Even though I like the scent, this will just have to be gifted. It’s too pretty and luxurious to keep for myself, especially when I have so many candles still waiting to be burned.
Jonathan Adler Carnaby Zebra Stacking Dish | $24.00
Too cute! It’s hard to tell in the photo but it’s actually a gorgeous navy color. This went right on my nightstand for earrings and rings. I’m thinking of getting another one so my boyfriend can have a matching dish on his nightstand.
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray | $39.00
I swear by this stuff, so I was ecstatic to see it in my box! I have super flat, straight hair and this is the only product that consistently gives amazing results without weighing it down or feeling stiff. It’s pricey, but one bottle lasts a long time and it definitely makes a huge difference!
Shy by Sydney Evan Gold Plated Love Necklace | $125.00
I’m usually not a fan of word jewelry, so I wasn’t expecting to like this. But when I saw it I was pleasantly surprised by how dainty it is! I’m actually really happy with this necklace and it layers very well. The tiny diamond is a cute touch.
Neiman Marcus White Fudge-Covered Corn Twists | $19.00
There was obviously going to be a food item included in the box, and I had my fingers crossed for some sort of chocolate…so I was happy to see these white chocolate coated snacks. They are really interesting (in a good way!) and we served them at a small get together with friends. These snacks were well-received by everyone!
Slim and Sage Dinner Plates Set of 4 | $99.00
I was the least excited about this item, since I think it’s kind of a gimmicky idea. The geometric design is supposed to help portion control and serving size (1/4 of the plate for meat, 1/4 for starch, 1/2 for vegetables), but I’ve seen lots of plates that have geometric patterns! I don’t really understand what makes this set special. For $99, the quality isn’t quite there. I do think the design is really pretty, I just don’t think it’s necessary to market it as special “scientifically designed” portion control plates.
Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope in “Pretty in Punk” | $95.00
This item was created exclusively for the NM box, so I’m basing the value off of their other Kaleidoscope prices. Le Metier de Beaute is one of my favorite brands and this eye shadow kit is fabulous! The colors look really bright and intimidating, but they are designed to be layered. The black mixed with the bright pink create a gorgeous plum color that is very wearable! It’s also very exciting that this kaleidoscope isn’t available for purchase anywhere else!
Neiman Marcus Chevron Patterned Throw | $195.00
This is the item that was released as a sneak peek, and I’m so happy to see that I received the navy color! I feel really lucky, since it’s the color I wanted most. And this throw is so soft and thick it almost justifies the $195 price tag. Almost. I still don’t think I would buy it full price, but it’s a wonderful addition to the box.
The box has a value of $630, which is amazing!! I would pay $250 for it again in a heartbeat. I’m already using most of the items, and love that everything is amazing quality. I’m looking forward to more collaborations in the future, and hope they keep Neiman Marcus around as a partner!
