I get my box at the beginning of the 3 month period so subscribe HERE so you don’t miss out on this and future AMAZING boxes!
This month’s box is curated by Dolce Candy. Check out my unboxing video below as well as detailed reviews of the items in the box with direct links and coupon codes.
The first in the box was a Limited Edition ColourPop Lippie Stix in the color “Beautycon Pink” and retails for $5. ColourPop always seems to work with Beautycon so if you are a collector of their items I recommend signing up! This is a beautiful nude shade that could work on so many skin tones. I love the formula because the color is opaque with a bit of shine. The perfect “my lips but better” color for me. Check out ColourPop HERE.
We also got a full sized Rimmel London Lipstick which retails for $7. The colors they sent out can vary but the one I received was in 300 Listen Up. This is Rimmel’s new “The One” lipstick formula that is supposed to be pigmented, moisturizing and last all day! The color I got is a bright magenta berry so I will be rocking this in the Spring/Summer! I can’t wait to try out the formula! Check it out HERE.

The next item I received was Artist Couture Illuminati Highlighter that retails for $11. This is made by Angel Merino who actually curated the fall box, which is weird that this wasn’t in that one. It is a super bright highlighter that is in loose powder form so it can be used many different ways! It can be a highlighter, an eye shadow topper, an eye shadow if used wet, or mixed into lotion for a diffused body glow! I don’t highlight my face but I can’t wait to use this on the eyes or dusted over my chest and arms. Check it out HERE.
Next we got a sample of the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer that retails for $7. This is a matte bronzer that can be used to contour the cheeks or as an eye shadow and it smells like chocolate! I don’t contour my face so I am probably passing this along. I have tried this product in the past and it is super smooth and provides a great contour shade. Check it out HERE.
As for the skincare items we got a full sized bottle of the Skinvolve Beauty Karate Cream which retails for $40! This cream has caffeine and argon oil in it to hydrate, tone and tighten the skin. Perfect for the New Year! It feels very lightweight on the skin and has a slight rose scent but nothing too heavy which I appreciate. Check it out HERE.
Next we got a sample of the Garnier Micellar Water which retails for $3.50. This is supposed to remove makeup and oil from the face without needing to rinse after. I am not a huge fan of Micellar waters because I feel like it takes longer to get all my makeup off and it does leave a residue on my face even when it says it doesn’t. I will keep this by my sink for days I am not wearing makeup and need a quick “rinse” but I won’t be buying this anytime soon. Check it out HERE.
Next in the box was the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Feline Mascara which retails for $8. This mascara is L’Oreal’s newest formula and promises lifted and separated lashes for a nice “cat eye” effect. I love the packaging and can’t wait to try this out! The brush looks like it will capture every lash and separate them so I am crossing my fingers! Check it out HERE.
We also received the L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Primer which retails for $5. This is a white mascara primer that promises to increase volume and length with any mascara it is used with. I actually already own this and don’t see a huge difference when using it. I feel like a mascara should do that job all on its own without adding an extra step. I think mascara primers are very un-needed. Check it out HERE.
Next I got a Luxie Beauty Highlighting brush that retails for $24. I have so many Luxie brushes and love them all! This one is perfect to go with the highlighter that was sent. I love that they included a tool that can be used with another product. This could also be used for a soft contour or blush! I love it! Check it out HERE.
Next we got a sample of the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate exfoliating treatment which retails for $24. This is a professional strength exfoliating treatment that you leave on the skin for 2 minutes then wash off. This makes my skin super soft and smooth for the rest of the week! Since it is a professional strength exfoliator it is to be used only 1-2 times a week. If you have super sensitive skin I would patch test it first. Check it out HERE.
The final item in the box is a BioBelle Botanic Fiber Mask which retails for $5. This is supposed to be super hydrating and diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. I love trying out new face masks so I will either use this or share it with my Mom who also loves face masks. Check it out HERE.
Overall I LOVED everything this month. I loved that it was makeup and skincare heavy and we had over 7 FULL SIZED items! It think Beautycon did a great job with the variety included and colors they sent out.

I recently received my fall Beautycon box and I wanted to show you all the fun goodies I got inside!
Beautycon is a seasonal/quarterly box that comes every 3 months and costs $29.99 plus shipping. Each box is curated by a Youtube/Social media guru. My past boxes have been curated by Bethany Mota, Kandee Johnson, and Graveyard girl. This season’s box is curated by 2 stars: Angel Merino (MAC_Daddy) and MakeupShayla. I follow Angel on Instagram but not MakeupShayla but I have heard of her. Check out my unboxing video below as well as detailed reviews with links to all the products inside.
The first item I pulled out was the Browgal Double Ended Highlighter Pencil in Gold/Nude. This is full sized and retails for $20. I love the size of this and the fact that it is double sided since it is like getting 2 products in 1! The gold side is a bit too deep of a gold for my skin tone to use under my brow bone so I will use it as an all over eyeshadow or just on my inner corner. The other side is a matte flesh toned stick that is still a bit dark for my skin tone. I am not sure if I will use this side. I wish this would have come in a lighter more champagne color for me. Check it out HERE.
Next we got a pair of MakeupShayla lashes from Flutter lashes. These are full size and retail for $11. We also got a sample of duo lash glue to go with them. The lashes are a stacked style meaning they are supposed to give the look of 2 pairs on top of each other. This creates a full almost 3D effect. These are definitely a statement maker which I will be wearing at my next special event. I know duo glue isn’t expensive so I wish they would have given us a full size. Check out the lashes HERE.
