I really don't know what I expected when I ordered this. I can tell you that it was NOT a cardboard box.
The product itself is not bad. It had a decent staying power and is very blendable, but was kind of a glitter bomb. I was also expecting something a little more mauvey and this wound up being neutral/pink glitter thing. I have been using it as an all over bronzer type thing instead of a blush when I'm feeling a bit tired to give myself some more all over color.
But the packaging, oh the packaging. I didn't think a box would be that bad of an idea. I thought it would fit better in my makeup bag for traveling. I was so wrong. The box is HUGE. This is the biggest blush in my collection. The mirror is so small it makes me go cross-eyed just looking into it and the brush was pretty terrible and the completely wrong shape for a blush brush. If they would have skipped the brush and mirror and given me slimmer packaging, I may have considered buying the product in a different shade.
