When I think about RepliKating, most of the time I think about Kate’s clothing, hair and accessories. Very seldom do I think about cosmetics and fragrances. Yes, I know what she wore, and yes I love the idea of using some of the Duchess’ favorite treatments. However, the biggest concern I have when I am at the makeup counter is, am I willing to purchase without sampling it first?
Some of the wonderful cosmetics, treatments and fragrances that Kate uses or has used in the past are aren’t even accessible in store. For example, Illiminum in White Gardenia Petals (Kate’s Wedding Day Perfume) isn’t available in any store near me. Which poses a problem when the fragrance itself costs upwards of $150. With Kate’s clothing I am willing to take a gamble, because there is always the option to tailor the garment, but when it comes to a fragrance everyone is different.
So what is a RepliKator to do?
Last month I came across the perfect RepliKate Cosmetic Kit through What Would Kate Do. WWKD’s Royal Beauty Box is an assortment of various samples of Kate’s fragrances, hair accessories and cosmetics. Why is this Royal Beauty Box so nifty?
Everything is already boxed up! No need to pay additional shipping from various retailers, no need to go in store to try and beg the makeup stylist to give you several samples and no need to drive all around town trying to find the item in the first place <3
WWKD offers the choice between a Basic Box ($25 for 5 samples) and a Deluxe ($30 for 6 samples & a Spot On Replica Sapphire Engagement Ring). Each item’s full value is listed, just to give you an idea of how much it costs to RepliKate our favorite Duchess. You also get to select what you want inside your Royal Beauty Box (nothing worse than getting a sample kit and all the samples are colors you would never use! This happens to me constantly….I like the idea that I pick and choose what I want to try).
Current Samples Available:
- Bobbi Brown Pale Pink Pot, Sandwashed Pink Lipstick, Pale Pink Blush, Apricot Blush, Slate Eyeshadow, Rockstar Eyeshadow
- Boots Expert Sensitive Gentle Smoothing Scrub
- Clarins Total Eye Concentrate
- Karin Herzog Cleansing Milk, Rose Face Cream, Foot Cream, Hand and Nail Cream, Mild Scrub, Oxygen Body 1%, Skin Care Vita-A-Kombi, Tonic Lotion
- Heaven Bee Venom Mask
- Illuminum – White Gardenia Petals Perfume
- Jo Malone – Orange Blossom Perfume
- Kerastase Elixir Ultime Beautifying Oil Cream
- Nivea Pure and Natural Facial Moisturizing Day Cream
- Ribbon Hair Ties
- Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Overall, I enjoyed the options. I was able to sample a perfume I hadn’t yet had the opportunity to try in store. I am SOLD! I will be purchasing Illiminum’s White Gardenia Petals after sampling it. Karin Herzog’s Foot cream is MAGIC BTW!!! (I am on my feet: walking, running, climbing, skipping and tripping ALL DAY EVERYDAY and this cream brings my feet back to life every time I use it).
The holidays are right around the corner, you had better believe these lovely Beauty Boxes would make perfect gifts and/or stocking stuffers for that special RepliKator in your life!
Have you already sampled WWKD’s Royal Beauty Box? If so, what samples did you select? Did you Love it?
