Firstly: the box. The BOX! The design is just truly out of this world with a little Parisian boutique that opens in the middle with the classic My Little Box ribbon tie. The box illustration features the beautiful Freddy My Love who also features as the star of this 'Mademoiselle' box.
As for the wallet itself, it's very simple in function with a few card slots tucked into the side and a zip pouch on the back. Inside it's very roomy, and so much so that I think for travelling it would be excellent. I haven't tested it out for this, but I'm pretty sure you could fit your passport inside and certainly your phone. And for travelling anyway I actually like less cards with me (I mean no one needs a Boots card in their wallet on a weekend to Paris etc!) so I'm really excited to have this as my travel, chic wallet.
Like the Diane Von Furstenberg box from 2014, it's really special to own something by quite a luxury brand, and I really adore My Little Box for their creative collaborations and I hope there are more to come like this in the future!
Next up is the usual My Little Beauty treat and this month it's the Mademoiselle Volume Impertinent mascara which promises to add XXL volume and a doe eyed look to lashes. This is pretty much my perfect mascara requirements and so I was expecting amazing things. The first time I tried it I wasn't hugely impressed but after using it a few times now I really like it. It was quite 'wet' to start with and I just find for me personally gloopy formulas weigh down the lashes but it's become a little more worn and used now and somehow that's made it better to apply! And the packaging is just so cute: I adore the little bows!
Finally an Essie nail polish which is quite a popular addition for My Little Box. Essie is a brand that has a gorgeous range of shades and high quality products, so although they do use this brand a lot, it's still a lovely addition! This shade is totally different from anything I own, like another pink or deep red that I certainly don't need. But no, this is a seriously deep black with silver glitter that is really unique and I think when winter gets near it will be very seasonally appropriate.
*****I think if you're not a fan of the style of the wallet, which is such a key part of the September My Little Box, then this box might not be for you. As a Claudie Pierlot fan myself I really loved this box and to own something designed by them is again really special and something I will treasure.
The one disappointment with this box is quite trivial, but I spotted on Instagram a Claudie Pierlot design for the beauty bag and it's just so pretty! As you can see I just received a heart drawstring bag so I'm a bit gutted I missed out on the special design for this one.
