Review of January Box:

  1. Blinc Mascara Amplified Full Size: $26.00 I found this mascara to be very different from any other that I have used. I am very impress has to how easy it is to remove. With just hot water, the mascara rolls off and does not leave any residue. I did not find it to be lengthening or volumizing.
  2. Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Full Size: $39.95 Great pigmentation, easy to blend. Possible dupe for Naked Smoky. ( All Revealed palettes always go on sale for $19.00, wait until the sale of you are interested in purchasing any of the Revealed Palettes).
  3. Royal & Langnickel Brush Set (R)evolution Full Size: $23.97 I really enjoyed these brushes. I reach for them constantly. They are very soft, pack on and blend eyeshadow evenly. Stiff enough to smudge shadow. I specially love to use them when working with dark shades as it helps reduce any fallout.
  4. Ardency Inn Modster Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner Full Size: $19.00 Very intense shade, glides on beautifully and stays all day.

Let’s see how this month’s product perform. I’m looking into other subscription services.. Any recommendations??????

    I really enjoy receiving this box, it’s a great way to try new products and brands. I am very excited to try the Blinc Mascara and that Pink eyeliner. The smoky palette I want to compare to my Urban Decay Smoky I am so in love with, that will be interesting.

    Review of previous Box: 

    December’s box came with a couple of products that I did not use but over all I had fun playing with new formulas. I loved 3/6 products. Still was a good box.

    1. Tatcha Petal Fresh Original Aburatorigami: Full Size $12.00 : I did not use this, I have dry skin.
    2. Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow: Full Size $15.95 : This highlighter is so lightweight. It feels very refreshing . I applied it before foundation and it gave a healthy glow.
    3. NCLA So Rich Cuticle Oil: Full Size $18.00 : I did not use this product. I didn’t pay much attention to my nails this month.
    4. Nelson J Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Mask Full Size: $23.00: I was not impress with this mask. It is more of a liquid texture. I expected a thick cream. I did not see any difference in my hair. The coconut scent is more of a chemical scent.
    5. Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick: Full Size $19.90 : This is the first Ofra liquid lipstick I own and I cannot wait to purchase more. This lipstick did not dry out my lips. It feels very comfortable and is long lasting.
    6. Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Lip Liner: Full Size $17.99: The formula of the lip liner is moisturizing and has a velvety feel. It is easy to apply and is long lasting. Both the liquid lipstick and lip liner paired beautifully and together lasted a long time on my lips, through eating and drinking.

    I really like the color selection of the lip products, they pair perfectly together. The highligher is intense, can’t wait to use it!

    Last month’s box:

    I really enjoyed the products in the November box: The Manna Lipgloss in All of Me is very comfortable and moisturizing on the lips. It leaves a natural stain and is not at all patchy. The Studio Makeup in Wildflower has a velvety texture and is easy to blend, does not look powdery on the skin. The lipgloss and blush are both beautiful shades and can be paired perfectly together or used in a variety of looks, very pigmented. The Pur-lisse 4 in 1 Eye serum is light-weight. Feels very refreshing and moisturizing. I apply it at night and love the way the eye area looks in the morning, no puffiness and I look more awake. The Lexie 211 concealer brush is a beautiful rose gold brush. I find it very useful for both concealer and forpacking on eyeshadow, it works great. I didn’t use the leave-in conditioner this month since I am still trying to use up one I received in my Boxycharm a couple months back. (Check out my November Boxycharm unboxing post.)
