This month’s box already has me so excited! Six amazing products all from very popular brands, and each item is something I know I will use. This is definitely in the running for the best box I’ve received to date! Anyway, let’s get into some swatches and initial thoughts!

PUR Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette $34.00

“This essential palette is filled with highly pigmented and silky smooth shadows.”

This palette was the big, most anticipated item in this months box, and I have to say it is stunning. With 8 buttery mattes and 4 crazy metallics, this is a perfect all in one palette for traveling. There is not a single dud in this palette, and that is so rare! I haven’t tried these on my eyes yet but after swatching them I think this might be one of my new favorite palettes. I have spent the past few days watching Youtube videos of people doing looks using this so I cannot wait to play around with it!

MAC Eyebrows in Spiked $18.00

“Self-propelling, self-sharpening, and brow-defining. This pencil will add everything you need: shape, color and/or density in one streamlined tool. Like a pen, it creates its own just-right point for striking arches. It’s also the perfect pencil to take on the go – no sharpener needed!”

I have loved and used this product for a long time, and in this exact shade in fact! This pencil is pretty dry, which is perfect for a natural brow look. The tiny point makes creating real looking brow hairs super easy, and it can be used to create a very sharp tail as well. Because it is on the drier side, I find it lasts all day on my brows, especially when I set it with a clear brow gel.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Littlestitous $6.00

“High pigmentation and a satin-matte finish in liquid lipstick form to keep your lips soft and comfy all day long.”

The Ultra Satin Lip formula is my all time favorite product from Colourpop, so when I saw this in the box I was so excited to add it to my collection. I have had my eye on this shade for a while, and was planning on adding it to my next purchase! This is such an adorable mauve pink, perfect for no makeup days or pairing with a dark smokey eye. This formula lasts all day on my lips but because it never dries to a full matte it doesn’t dry them out and crack off.

Studio Make Up Luminous Loose Blush $35.00

“This lightweight blush provides a vibrant pop of color for the most natural, healthy look.”

Of all the products in the box, this is probably the one I am least excited about, but I am still going to use it. Loose blushes can be a bitch to work with, but this is a pretty subtle color so it won’t be too hard to get a natural look. There are some flecks of glitter in this, but when you blend it into the skin the glitter almost falls away. I do like the shade, I have always been partial to peachy nude blushes.

Bare Minerals Face Perfecting Brush $28.00

“This patented makeup brush lets you adjust your foundation coverage by the drop for a perfectly seamless foundation application.”

I have always wanted to try this brush! I think the idea is so cool, and perfect for more water-based foundations. While I am very loyal to my Beauty Blender, I have been using a few different brushes lately to blend in my more thin foundations, so I cannot wait to test this out next time I do a full face of make up.

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask $20.00

“An intensive weekly treatment to restore essential hydration and enhance hair’s resilience to protect against future damage.”

Briogeo is one of my favorite hair care brands, and their masks are amazing! I have very dry ends, so I am always trying out new hydrating and conditioning products, so we will see if this helps my hair out at all. The only downside to a deluxe sample size like this is I really only get two good uses out of it because I have way too much hair! If I love it though I will definitely buy the full size, because I love the brand and the people behind it!

Box Value: $141.00

Let me know your favorite product from this month’s box!

Glowingly yours,

Jess
