Limited Edition Halloween Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have a different unboxing, a Halloween beauty box. I haven’t done a holiday beauty box unboxing before so when I saw this I knew I had to buy it. This box comes from Walmart Beauty and you may or may not know that after the spring Walmart Beauty Box they decided to take off the summer to revamp the box. So I guess this is the intro to that relaunch, although I did get an email a few days ago saying that this week I’m going to charged for the fall box, so the fall boxes are coming. This box in particular cost me $10.00, which is double the price of the normal WBB, and came with a little pamphlet that gave a description of each of the items. I got to choose between two, both had the same base items but one came with an eyeliner and the other with a lipstick. I chose the eyeliner option because I knew I would get more use out of it and I haven’t worn a drugstore eyeliner in years so I wanted to try one out.

The box itself is all white with a white Walmart logo on the top and it’s white on the inside as well. Because this is the Halloween box I was hoping for a pop of orange, black or purple or even some festive tissue paper.

The first item we have in this box is the Splat Hair Chalk in Midnight Blue. This is basically hair dye but not, you take pieces of hair, lightly spray with hair spray, open the color compact, close it around the hair and slide it down your hair. Depending on how dark you want the color to be you can go over the already colored pieces of hair. And to set it just spray more hair spray. I haven’t used anything like this since I was a kid, but it’s a quick and easy way to get color into your hair, the Splat Hair Chalks come in a variety of colors, and once you’re over the color it washes out easily. 

IMG_6481

The next item we have is a Neutrogena Makeup Remover Towelette. This is a single, but you can get this individually wrapped towelettes in a bag of 20. I always keep these on hand, the fact that they’re individually wrapped makes it easy to keep in your handbag, which I do, and I also really like these for taking off swatches because they get all the makeup off. 

IMG_6483

Moving on we have a Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eyeshadow quad. This is the product that confused me when I saw it. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows a purple quad, to me it looks like 510, Precocious, but what I actually received was 500, Addictive, a neutral/brown quad. If this is a Halloween box the purple makes perfect sense, but I’m not sure how you would get the same effect with neutrals/browns. I also haven’t worn Revlon eyeshadow since I was in junior high, so I couldn’t tell you now how these shadows are going to perform. Normally I would do some swatches, but I’m going to give this to someone and I want it to be fresh for them. 

IMG_6484

Next up we have the Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Liquid Eyeliner in 1807, Black To Basic. This is a matte eyeliner that says it’s easy to apply, mess free and dries down quickly. I’ve only tried Hard Candy lipsticks and nail polishes, so I’m interested to try this out and see how it performs. This has a nice tip on it and it seems like you could easily do thick or thin liner. I saw that this liner comes in different colors, so if I like it I might look into the other shades. 

IMG_6488

IMG_6489

Moving on we have the Milani Strobelight Liquid Highlighter in 06, 24K Gold. When they say gold, they mean gold. I do like liquid highlighters and when I saw this I was interested because I haven’t tried one from Milani. I think for me this might be a little too gold, but the formula seems nice and when the light hits it it is quite pretty. 

IMG_6491

IMG_6492

IMG_6500

The second to last item we have is the NYX Shout Loud Satin Lipstick in Red Haute. I’ve heard great things about the NYX Satin Lipsticks and based on the swatch I can see why. This is a really pretty shade of red and seems to be nicely pigmented. It claims to deliver up to four hours of hydration in one swipe, which I’ll be looking for when I wear it. All of the Shout Out Loud satins are infused with mango and shea butter and have a heart stamped into them which I think is adorable. 

IMG_6493

IMG_6494

IMG_6495

IMG_6501

And the last item we have is a Sinful Colors nail polish. This is the second thing that I saw that confused me. On the website and in the pamphlet it shows what looks to be a deeper sparkly red polish, maybe Sugar Sugar, and that’s one of the things that drew me in. But the polish I got was 852, Gogo Girl. I do like this polish, in fact I own this polish and it’s on my nails right now. It’s a nice shade of red and like the other Sinful Colors polishes it wears well. 

IMG_6499

IMG_6497

That about wraps it up for this post, overall I think it was alright. I was disappointed by a few things, but I’m really interested to see what the revamped seasonal boxes look like. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and have fun creating Halloween looks :).

October BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I received my October box from BoxyCharm, sooner than I thought, and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Candy Shop which is not only perfect because of Halloween, but because this box is full of treats.

BBFD2F26-306C-4FDB-BDF8-BFF3A2A3FB06

So the first item we have is the Grown Alchemist Matte Balancing Moisturiser with Acai Berry and Borago. This is a lightweight moisturizer that hydrates the face whilst balancing your skins oil levels and leaving your skin with a matte finish. I’ve only tried one other product from Grown Alchemist and I did like it, so I’m interested by this. 

IMG_6436

Next we have the Spongelle Cherry Tonka Musk Body Wash Infused Buffer. This buffer in particular is a limited edition creation between Spongelle and BoxyCharm. These buffers are really popular and they’re infused with body wash and when you run them under water they get soft so you can cleanse yourself. This has yuzu, edelweiss and vetiver root extracts and has a slight cherryness to it but it overall is a deeper and more musky scent. I did try one of these buffers last winter and I liked it. It was a very berry forward scent, so it’s nice to see something different. 

IMG_6441

Moving on we have the Ciate London New England Editor Palette. I can’t even tell you how happy I was to see this in my box, when the spoilers came out this is the thing I wanted the most. This is a pretty palette all around, the outer packaging is light pink with blue palm leaves. 

IMG_6442

When you open it you’re greeted with a huge mirror, which I greatly appreciate, and you see the 18 eyeshadow pans. 

IMG_6443

This has a great mix of metallics, glitters and mattes. I can tell by looking at this at it’s a very versatile palette because there are some really fun shades, but there’s also some more neutral shades that are perfect for fall. 

IMG_6444

I swatched this on my arm in the rows they’re in. The first shadow we have is a matte nude, next to that is a shimmery peach that I already have a look planned for. Then there’s a super pretty medium gold shimmer. Next to that is another peachy shade but it’s slightly darker than the first one. Then there’s a glittery blue that is an interesting tone, I would call it an aegean/denim, I’m interested to see what it looks like on the eye. And the last shadow in this row is a another shimmery blue but this is a navy blue. 

IMG_6456

The next row starts with a bright matte coral. Next to that is a shimmery deep emerald green, then there’s a shimmery light coppery/rose gold. Next to that is a glittery burgundy that has a gold shift to it. The second to last shadow is a chocolaty brown with just a bit of shimmer and the last shadow in the row is a matte light chocolate brown. 

IMG_6457

The last row starts with a deep shimmery gold that leans towards the copper side, it’s very pretty. Next to that is a very deep blue that is almost a purple/black. Then there’s a gorgeous green that I would say is medium in tone and has some yellow/gold glitters in it. Next to that is a light shimmery purple that has a light brown undertone. The second to last shadow is a matte dark brown, out of all of the shadows this one is the only one that didn’t swatch the best, it was a little patchy at first but I was able to build it up. I will be interested to see how it performs on the eye. And the last shadow in the row is shimmery purply/pink. Based on swatching alone I can tell you that these are really smooth shadows that look and feel like they’ll blend well and they’re all super pigmented. 

IMG_6458

The second to last item we have is the RealHer Ultimate Glow Getter Cheek Trio. This was my choice item for the month. Normally with my choice item I go for skincare, but I saw this and because I love a cheek palette, thought I would give it a try. I love the outer packaging, the marbling and rose gold lettering is super cute.

IMG_6445

This is a good size for a cheek palette, it fits nicely in the hand and would be great to throw in your handbag. It also has a good size mirror. 

IMG_6446

First in this palette is the blush and that’s in the shade Blessed. This is a very pretty peachy pink that has a little bit of shimmer in it. Sometimes shimmery blushes can be too shimmery, but I think this is well balanced. Then there’s the highlighter in the shade Goddess. This is basically everything I love in a highlighter. It’s a beautiful champagne in tone and it’s so pretty when it hits the light. And the last in the trio is a bronzer in the shade Incredible. In the swatch picture I did build up the bronzer, but it is a nice light-medium brown. I did find that it’s a little bit powdery but it blends nicely. Overall I think this is a great little palette and the pan size for a small palette is quite big.

IMG_6447

IMG_6455

And the last item we have is the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Tinted Cupuacu Lip Butter in the shade Sol Mate. This is a lightly tinted lip butter with cupuacu butter, acai and coconut oils that makes your lips moisturized, kissable and smelling of doce de leite.

IMG_6449

I’ve never tried anything from Sol de Janeiro that wasn’t a body cream, so I was immediately interested when I saw this. This scent genuinely reminds me of an old fashioned doughnut, which is a delicious smell, and despite that fact that it looks quite dark in color it’s pretty sheer. And it does build up nicely. Plus the packaging on this is super cute.

IMG_6450

IMG_6451

IMG_6452

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same items in your October BoxyCharm boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my November Box :).

September BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I finally got my September box from BoxyCharm and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme this month is Glam Vibes Only and the items in the box really fit the theme.

752A01FE-F2A1-44AA-8255-5F28B69F2DC9

The first product we have is the Farmacy Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry. This was one of the choice items for the month, I had yet to let Boxy choose my choice item so I did this month and they chose this. This is supposed to be super hydrating, full of Vitamin C and help to reduce the look of dark circles and fine lines while leaving the under eye looking radiant. This is paraben free, formaldehyde donor free, synthetic fragrance free, phthalate free and mineral oil free and cruelty free. I’ve heard great things about Farmacy and I love a good eye cream, so I’m excited to give this a try. 

IMG_6352

Next we have the Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows in Private Jet & Shimmering Sunset. This is a double ended liquid shadow set. I’m wearing this today and I really like it. The matte is really velvety and dried down pretty quickly and the metal is incredibly sparkly and super pretty. Private Jet is the matte, it has a doe foot applicator and is a light pink that has a lot of warmth to it and Shimmering Sunset, the metal has a pointed brush so it’s easy to apply as liner and it’s what I would call an amber/slightly rose gold glitter. 

IMG_6349

IMG_6350

IMG_6351

IMG_6355

Moving on we have the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Pressed Pigment Palette. This came out not too long ago and I thought it was super pretty, so when I saw it in the box I was really excited. This palette has eight shadows, four shimmers and four mattes. 

IMG_6346

This palette has a really nice mirror on the left side, which is something that’s popular in new palettes right now. 

IMG_6347

The shimmers in this palette are super shimmery with fine glitters and reflective pearls and the mattes seem smooth and like they’d be easy to blend. 

IMG_6348

I swatched this palette on my arm and I did it in rows as it appears in the palette. The first shadow we have is Pero Like, a peachy/orange metallic with gold glitter. Next to that is Tiene Swing, I would call this a deep burgandy metallic that in the pan and somewhat in the swatch, looks like it has a hot pink glitter. Then there’s Ay Que Cute, a matte light pink that has some slight rosy tones and the last shadow in the row is Muy Excited. This is a matte that I would call like a burnt orange with some brown undertones. When I was doing the swatches I found Ay Que Cute and Muy Excited to be a little powdery, but not enough for me to not want to wear them and I didn’t think the other mattes were powdery. 

IMG_6356

The first shadow in the second row is Eres Un Show, this is a purple, lavender, metallic and it’s so pretty. Next to that is Guao, another purple metallic but this one is darker and has blue glitter. Then there’s Jajaja, this is a matte brown that I would call light-medium in tone. And the last shadow in the row is Ponte Hyper, this is a matte hot pink/fuchsia that is super bright and gives Barbie vibes. 

IMG_6357

The second to last product we have is the Laura Geller LashBoss Bold Mascara in Black. This says it will lengthen and curl your lashes without clumping. It has Widelash and Carob Tree Seed Extract to prevent fall out, re-densify lashes and keep them soft and conditioned. I’m confused by this mascara, the before and after pictures on the box don’t look all that different from each other and the wand itself seems pretty standard. I’m still going to try it out and if it wows me, I’ll let you know. 

IMG_6342

IMG_6343

And the last product we have is the SFGlow Glam In Paradise Cannabis Sativa 3 Piece Mask Set. This has Cannabis Sativa (hemp) Oil, Green Purslane Extract and Meadowfoam Seed Oil to hydrate, calm and destress skin. This is a 3 piece set and you get the Glam Straight Face Mask, Eye Woke Up Like This Eye Mask and Sun’s Out Pouts Out Lip Mask. I don’t use a lot of lip masks, but I do love face and eye masks, so I can’t wait to try these out. 

IMG_6337

IMG_6338

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same items in your September BoxyCharm boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. 

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my October box :).

July 2020 BoxyCharm Add-Ons Haul

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my BoxyCharm Add-Ons order, so I thought that today would be a good day to go through it. There wasn’t too much that I wanted in the Add-Ons sale for July, but I did end up buying a set of brushes from a brand I’ve been wanting to try out.

What I picked up is the Moda Pro by Royal & Langnickel 5 piece Deluxe Eye Kit. This is a brand I’ve seen in BoxyCharm before I was subscribed and watched unboxings on YouTube, which I still do because I like to see which variation of the box people get. But I hadn’t tried them out myself. So when I saw them in the sale I decided to do just that.

IMG_5959

These brushes are black with a textured handled. On the front of the brush it has the Royal & Langnickel logo which is R&L with a crown on top and under that it says Moda Pro, all of that is written in silver. On the back of each brush it says what type of brush it is, also written in silver and the brush heads are black and white. They feel good in the hand, they’re nice to grip and they feel nice and soft.

IMG_5970

The first brush we have is the BMX-466 Shade brush. This isn’t as dense as some shade brushes, but I don’t mind that.

IMG_5960

IMG_5961

Next we have the BMX-430 Crease brush. This is fluffy and has a little point which is the general shape I like for a crease and blending brush.

IMG_5962

IMG_5963

Then we have the BMX-420 Detail brush. This is a small, dense brush with a slightly pointed tip and I don’t have anything quite like this.

IMG_5964

IMG_5965

The second to last brush we have is the BMX-402 Smudger. This is a small densely packed brush that is slightly rounded in shape.

IMG_5966

IMG_5967

And the last brush we have is the BMX-498 Liner brush. This has a chiseled edge and they recommend this for not only lining your upper and lower lash lines but for filling in your brows. All of which I’m going to try and see what I like it for the best.

IMG_5968

 

IMG_5969

The BoxyPopUp is coming up next week. Early access for Premium and Luxe subscribers opens on Monday August 10th and all access, for all subscribers opens Tuesday August 11th. Based on the sneak peeks I’ve seen it looks like there’s some great items in there.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve tried Moda Pro brushes I’d love to know your opinion. If you haven’t tried Moda Pro brushes but you did shop the July Add-Ons sale I’d love to know what you got.

Until next time, have fun shopping and you can never have too many brushes :).

July 2020 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Over the weekend I received my July box from BoxyCharm and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. The theme for this month is Boxy Sunshine and being that we’re in the middle of July and the middle of summer, it’s the perfect theme.

IMG_5842

The first product we have is the Chella Slanted Tip Tweezers. These have stainless steel slanted tips and a no slip coating. I haven’t used these yet, I just did my brows, but I like the way these feel in my hand. They’re good shape, comfortable to hold and it seems like they’ll really get in there and get all the little hairs.

IMG_5855

Next we have the Lavish Quick Color Switch Dry Brush Cleaner. This is one of those spongy brush cleaners that you swirl your brush on and it removes the pigment. I’ve been wanting to try one of these for a while, I actually almost bought one a few weeks ago and I’m glad I didn’t. You can take the sponge out of the container to clean it, so it is reusable, it says to clean just wash with your favorite cleanser and allow to air dry before putting back into container. I will definitely let you guys know what I think of this.

IMG_5856

IMG_5857

Moving on we have the Clean Skin Club Vitamin C Brightening Booster. This was my choice item for this month. This has pineapple, watermelon and green tea extracts and along with brightening your complexion it helps to reduce signs of aging and protects against UV damage. I really like vitamin C serums, my skin really likes them and this one smells really good. The packaging is also really nice, it’s in a very pretty glass bottle.

IMG_5859

The second to last product we have is the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray. This is infused with fresh coconut extract, has micro pearls to give you glowing and dewy finish and comes out in a really fine mist. I’ve been using this since I got it and I absolutely love it, it’s the perfect summertime setting spray. The coconut makes me think of the beach, tanning and all the things you associate with the season. This dries down pretty fast which I appreciate, doesn’t make you feel tacky or sticky, locks in your makeup and the glow you get is really nice. The packaging of the whole Everyday Vacay collection is super pretty and this is one of those products that you would want to put in the front of your makeup collection so it could be seen. I highly recommend this if you’re looking for a good setting spray.

IMG_5858

And the last product we have is the Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Eyeshadow Palette. When spoilers for this months box were coming out I saw this palette and instantly wanted it.

IMG_5860

With this palette you get 12 shadows, 6 are shimmery/glittery shadows, there’s 4 mattes and 2 satins. You do get a good size mirror with this palette as well. I’m going to be doing a first impressions post about this palette as I’ve already used it, so I won’t be giving away too much of my opinion on it now.

IMG_5861

Starting with the top row, the first shadow we have is Euphoric and this is a cream glitter. Next to that is Pure Bliss, a more golden glitter. Then there’s Photo Op, a matte light almost orangey brown and the last shadow in the row is Dreamland and that is a matte salmony/peach shade.

IMG_5862

Starting the second row we have Turn It Up which is a bright hot pink in a satin finish. Next to that is Insta-Worthy, a matte pinky/brown. Then here’s Vibes, a glittery shade that is similar to Insta-Worthy in color but with more purple in the glitter and the last shadow in the row is On Set, a matte deep chocolatey brown.

IMG_5863

The last row starts with Utopia, a super pretty light blue glittery shadow with white and yellow glitters in it. Next to that is Electric, a very nice deep blue glitter, this is one of my favorite shadows in the palette. Then there’s Fantasy World, which is a pinky purple, magenta-ish if you will, in a satin finish. And the last shadow in the row is VIP Pass, this is a very complex shadow. It’s a deep green but you can see it has some gray in it and some silver glitters.

IMG_5864

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your July BoxyCharm boxes let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my August box :).

Walmart Beauty Box Update

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! I wanted to give you guys a quick update on the Walmart Beauty Box. I did my unboxing and review of the Spring box a few days ago and if you read that then you know that I wasn’t impressed. I received an email from them today and it reads as follows;

“Hi Beauty Box Subscriber,

Sometimes we all need a little makeover, right? We think so too. And that’s why we are revamping our Beauty Box to make it an even better experience for you! Since we will be making some changes over the next couple of months, we will not be sending out an official Summer Box. We are excited to announce that your next Beauty Box will be on it’s way in August.

So, what happens next? In mid-August you will receive an an email saying that your Fall Beauty Box is in the works. Shortly after that, your box will be shipped. The only thing left to do is enjoy trying your fall beauty products just in time to start the new season!”

I had been hoping that the next box would be much better, so I’m not too upset about not getting a Summer box in order to make that happen.

If you guys are subscribed to the Walmart Beauty Box I’d love to know what new things you’re hoping to see.

Spring 2020 Walmart Beauty Box Review

Hi everyone,

Today I’m back with another unboxing, this time of the Spring 2020 Walmart Beauty Box. I always say that the Walmart Beauty Box is a little off with their timing and this box is no different. I got this on Friday so one day before the official start of summer. The theme for this month is Spring Beauty Sensations. The box itself is white with the Walmart logo in the center and that is made of lipstick swatches in various pinks and reds. Sometimes they will make the inside of the box a different color to more match the season, but this time it’s plain white inside.

IMG_5705

IMG_5706

So the first thing we have is the Suave Curl Defining Cream For Naturally Curly and Coily Hair. This is part of the Suave Professionals for Natural Hair collection. It has natural shea butter and pure coconut oil along with no parabens, dyes and is color safe. This is supposed to add shine, moisture and help bring your curls back to life while enhancing your natural curl pattern.

IMG_5707

The second product we have is the Biore Rose Quartz + Charcoal Daily Purifying Cleanser. This says that the charcoal deep cleans and the rose quartz radiates self love. Biore as far as I know is a well liked drugstore skincare brand and based on the research I did, people seem to really like this cleanser and how it made their skin feel.

IMG_5711

Moving on we have one of two things from the brand Hello. This is a charcoal infused, tapered bristle toothbrush, with bristles made from bamboo, that is natural and bpa free. I know a lot of people like the charcoal toothpastes and such, but personally I’m not the biggest fan. I think this is a cool idea though.

IMG_5709

The second item from Hello is an antiplaque + whitening, fluoride free, natural peppermint with tea tree and coconut oil toothpaste. I’m 50/50 about natural toothpastes and I have a whitening toothpaste that I really like, but I’ll give this one a try and see what I think.

IMG_5712

The second to last product we have is Natural Vitality Calm in Raspberry-Lemon. This is a magnesium supplement that you stir into cold or warm water and drink. It’s supposed to help balance your calcium intake and promote healthy magnesium levels along with helping you feel more relaxed and less stressed. I take my vitamins and things like that but I’m not really into things like this on this level. My mom is though, so I’ll give this to her and see if she likes it.

IMG_5708

And the last product we have is the Salon Perfect Design Nail Set. This is a set of fake nails with a grey marble and gold stripe pattern and an almond shape. In this kit you get 24 nails, a nail file and professional nail glue. I haven’t worn glue on fake nails in many years and I don’t typically pick this shape, but these are pretty cute and something I could have fun with.

IMG_5710

Overall I feel like this is one of the worst Walmart Beauty Boxes I’ve received, it almost feels like they forgot they had to do a box. There’s nothing in here that feels super springy and I feel like there was a few cases where they definitely didn’t look at my profile preferences. Hopefully the summer box will be better. If any of you guys are subscribed to the Walmart Beauty Box, I’m interested to know what you thought of your spring box.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what’s in the summer box :).

May 2020 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

The other day I received my May BoxyCharm Box and I thought today would be the perfect day to go through it. From what I understand there’s typically supposed to be a little card that says a theme and has prices for all the products, but I didn’t get one in this box so I don’t know what the theme is for this month.

IMG_5545

IMG_5532

So the first product we have is the Daily Concepts Shampoo Bar. This has aloe, which helps to moisturize and balance along with soothing hair and scalp. Nopal Cactus, which helps to protect and nourish hair. And avocado oil to help with natural shine and elasticity. I could smell this through the box and it has that very natural, health food store smell. I’m pretty selective with what I put on my hair, but I’m interested by this.

IMG_5549

IMG_5550

The next product we have is the Ayam BeautyCare Dead Sea Minerals + Vitamin C Serum Makeup Remover Wipes. These are cruelty free with no artificial dyes, no parabens and no phthalates. These say that they remove everything, kiss proof, long lasting, waterproof, etc and leave the skin brightened and moisturized. I don’t use makeup wipes a lot on my face, I typically use them for removing swatches, and that’s the test that I did on these. They did get all the makeup off my arm and they smell really good. This is not an ad or a sponsored post, but Ayam BeautyCare reached out to me on Instagram and gave me a discount code. So if you go to their website and use BOXYFAM you’ll get 30% off your order.

IMG_5552

IMG_5553

Moving on we have the GlamGlow BerryGlow Probiotic Recovery Mask. This mask has a bunch of incredible things in it. Jojoba Oil, hyaluronic acid and shea butter for hydrating and protecting your skin’s moisture barrier. A blend of blueberry, cranberry and goji berry extracts along with vitamins to nurture the skin. And Lactobacillus ferment probiotic to support and help balance your skin’s microbiome. I really like GlamGlow masks and this one smells really good, so I’m excited to try it out.

IMG_5546

IMG_5547

IMG_5548

The second to last product we have is the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. This primer is infused with mineral rich clay to absorb any excess oil and has a fade proof, crease proof translucent finish that will make your eyeshadow more long wearing and vibrant. I’m always interested in a good eyeshadow primer and I have yet to try out anything from Pretty Vulgar, so I’ll let you guys know what I think.

And the last product we have is the Studio Makeup Ease-To-Wear Eyeshadow Palette. This is a 9 pan, neutral palette with a mix of mattes and shimmers. This palette is similar to and reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked Reloaded Palette in tone and color story. I wouldn’t call it a dupe, but I think it would be a good alternative. The UD Naked Reloaded is 12 pans and $44.00 and this one is 9 pans and $35.00. I did swatch this on my arm and at first the mattes were a little powdery, but they definitely seem workable and I think the shimmery shades are nicely pigmented. The first fives shadows we have are Sheen, which is a light almost champagney color. Then we have Flaxen, a medium brown shimmer, next to that is Bare, a light almost gray/brown matte. Gilded is next and that is a light shimmery brown and Wicked, a dark chocolatey brown shimmer.

The next four starts with Lace, a matte really light almost nudey brown. Then we have Dusk which is a very pretty pink that falls between light and medium and has just a bit of shine. Next to that is Blush and that is a light matte mauve and the last shadow is Fate, a very deep matte chocolate brown.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your May BoxyCharm Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my June BoxyCharm box :).

April 2020 BoxyCharm Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I have something that I’m really excited about, the start of a new series, and that’s monthly BoxyCharm unboxings. I’ve wanted to do BoxyCharm for a while and after the end of Sephora Play, I subscribed. For those who don’t know, BoxyCharm is a $25.00 a month beauty subscription box and in each box you get 5 full size products. There are upgrades you can do and different boxes you can get, but this is the standard box.

I subscribed at the end of April, so my first box is the April box. When I was going through and setting my preferences, I selected a makeup heavy box with a little bit of skincare, and this box is exactly that.

IMG_5509

The first product we have is the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes. This cream has algae extract and hyaluronic acid so it’s supposed to restore smoothness, seal in moisture and help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I’ve tried a few different Murad products before and really liked them but I’ve never tried any of their eye creams, so I’m excited to try this out and I’ll let you know what I think.

Next we have the Ciate London Eye Lustre Creme Eyshadow in Cupid. This is a lightweight shadow with color shifting pigments that is supposed to be fall out free. This is honestly one of the prettiest shadows I’ve owned. When you look at it in the tube it’s a really pretty purpley/pink, but when it hits the light it shifts to gold. I’m honestly excited to wear this.

Moving on we have the Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. As this is a blush trio, you get 3 blushes. The first blush is Seclusion, which is a peachy/orange, then there’s Isla, which is a coral shade and Toasted, which is a rosey pink. I’m wearing Isla today and it’s quite pretty. These blushes have a good amount of pigmentation without being over the top and they blend out nicely.

The second to last product we have is the Vintage By Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha. This is a nice medium brown and it goes on really smooth. I’m wearing it today all over my lips with and I really like the way it looks and how long it wears. About halfway through today I put a Too Faced gloss on top and I still really like how it’s looking. This is a lip pencil I would recommend.

And the last product we have is the Steve Laurant Lip Gloss in Posh. This is a lightweight, high shine lip gloss with opacity but also gives a great color payoff. When I swatched this it came off as an orangey/brown and my first thought was that it would probably look good with the Vintage Cosmetics lip pencil. I don’t always reach for a gloss when I’m doing my lips, but I’ll give this one a try and see what I think.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys got any of the same products in your April BoxyCharm box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get.

Until next time, enjoy your products and I can’t wait to see what I get in my May BoxyCharm box :).

April 2020 Sephora Play Unboxing

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be unboxing my April Play Box from Sephora, but this isn’t a regular Play Box, this is actually the last one. Sephora has decided to end Play and they’re going to be rolling out something different coming soon. The theme for this month is Best-For-Last Beauty, which are some favorites products from the Play team. The bag itself is plastic with a snap and lock closure, the front is a see through red with various beauty and lifestyle products and ‘Play! By Sephora’ in the middle. The back is white with ‘Thank you for PLAY!ing’ with two hearts, written in red. I also received a thank you note for being a long time subscriber and it let me know that there is an extra product in the bag and a set of ten beauty and Play themed stickers.

So the first product we have is the Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara in Black. This is supposed to have a super creamy formula that gives length and buildable volume for up to 24 hours. I’m wearing this mascara today and so far I really like it. The formula is actually really creamy and it went on without any clumping and there’s no transfer. I quite like the brush, it’s nice and big with the plasticy bristles and it has a spikey bit on the end that makes sure you can get all your lashes.

IMG_5432

The next product we have is the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This is a holy grail product for me and my absolute go to for setting sprays. It’s light, dries down quickly and once it has dried then your makeup is locked in. The box says for up to 16 hours and it delivers.

IMG_5433

Moving on we have the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. This is one of my favorite eye creams, I pretty much swear by it. It’s super lightweight and sinks in quickly along with helping with the elasticity of the skin. It has tiger grass which soothes and comfrey leaf which detoxifies. This is a product I always recommend.

IMG_5434

Next we have the Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion. This is a lightweight mushroom infused lotion that is supposed to calm your skin and help to reduce any redness you may have. I don’t really have any redness, but I’m going to give this to someone I know who already uses and loves it.

IMG_5435

The second to last regular product we have is the Shiseido Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42. This is a super light sunscreen that can also acts as a primer along with absorbing any oil you may have and giving a matte finish. I don’t always use an SPF under my makeup, I typically do a setting spray that is an SPF as well but that can get a little tacky, so I’m interested to try this out.

IMG_5436

And what would be the last product, this month’s bonus, is the Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask. This is one of my all time favorite hair masks and I’m actually running low on the one I have so this is perfect timing. You put this all the way through your hair, leave for two to five minutes and rinse. It leaves your hair feeling really soft and healthy and I definitely recommend giving it a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5437

The extra product that I received as a thank you is the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dance Fever. I’m wearing this today and it’s a really nice medium brown shade. It went on smooth and it’s lasting well through the eating and drinking I’m doing. I have a couple of this is a range of different colors and I think they’re great.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same products in your April Play Box let me know and if not I’d love to know what you did get. I’d also love to know what your favorite product is that you’ve received from Sephora Play in general.

Until next time, enjoy your products and thank you Sephora Play for all the great products :).
