Would You Be My Galentine?

Trio Eye Kit by Sedona Lace $39.95

“Take your eye makeup to the next level with Sedona Lace’s new trio eye kit. The cruelty free brushes are crafted out of state of the art, incredibly soft, synthetic bristles. This complete set offers everything you need to achieve a gorgeous eye look – brows, shadow, and liner!”

I was so excited to get these brushes because I have been dying to try anything from Sedona Lace. Because these are synthetic bristles, they are great for blending cream and any other non-powder product. The first brush is a very sturdy blending brush, and it fits perfectly in my crease. The second brush is meant for brows, but I have used it twice for gel liner and it gives a really crisp, thin line. I haven’t used the last brush yet, but it looks like a great brush for winged liner.

Eye Shadow Pans from Make Up Geek $12.00

“A highly-pigmented, high-end shadow for half the price without sacrificing quality. This Makeup Geek eye shadow can be used alone or placed in a Z Palette to build your own custom palette. These buttery, smooth shadows are cruelty-free!”

I have always loved MUG shadows, so I was more than happy to add two more to my collection. I was actually lucky that I didn’t already own these two. I am pretty sure people got all different colors. The shades I got were Beaches & Cream and Barcelona Beach. The first is a light caramel brown shade, and the second is a more neutral dark brown. These shadows blend perfectly and compliment so many different eye looks. I used both today for a really subtle look, both just lightly dusted in the crease.

Mineral Matt Lipstick by Doucce $20.00

“A pure color lipstick that glides on effortlessly giving you a rich and velvet matte finish. Infused with SPF 10 and vitamin E, application gives off a soft texture, leaving your lips hydrated all day with a non-drying effect. Maximized color impact that provides a full-bodied coverage with incredible pigmentation. Exceptionally long wear formula that won’t feather or fade away.”

This is the second time I have gotten something from Doucce in my box. The packaging looks pretty, but it feels very cheap and plastic-y. I wish I had gotten a more day to day shade, but this red is really pretty. It reminds me a lot of a glossy version of MAC’s Ruby Woo. The formula is very slippy, so I would suggest wearing a lip liner to keep it from feathering. I haven’t worn this out yet, so I can’t really speak to its longevity yet.

Microdermabrasion by Dr. Brandt $79.00

“The original skin exfoliating procedure.”

This was the product I was most excited to see in my box, mostly because of how expensive it is! getting an $80 product for only 21 bucks is the whole reason I love Boxycharm so much. I have sensitive skin, so I first tested this on a tiny patch on my cheek, but after a day or so I tried it over my entire face. This left my skin the smoothest it has ever been, I am so in love! You get a good amount of product in this bottle, and you should only use this once a week, so this will last me a while.

Small Z Palette $14.00

“Completely customizable, this Small Z Palette, made exclusively for Boxycharm, features an open-faced, magnetic base that allows you to easily switch out shades and products as often as you like! This pint-sized Z Palette will fit just about anywhere and fits up to 9 standard-sized round pans.”

I think this little palette is so cute, especially with the Boxycharm heart! I have a few of these palettes, so I don’t have anything to put in this yet, but I will probably put some of my homemade pressed shadows in here!

All in all, this box had a total value of $164.95, which is very impressive. Let me know what you got in your box this month and what your thoughts are.

Glowingly yours,

Jess

      The box is only $21, but I have never had a box be worth less than $100, so it really is a great deal. I used to have a subscription to both Ipsy and Birchbox, and I cancelled them both because they just couldn’t compete with this.
