Today I have the Spring Box from Beautycon to show you! This is a quarterly/seasonally box that ships out 4 times a year and is packed with the latest beauty products! Usually the box is curated by a popular Youtube/ Social Media Star but I don’t see anyone’s name on the box this month. This box is $35.99 a season. You can get 20% off by signing up HERE. I get my box at the beginning of the 3 month period so you still have time to sign up if you really like this box! Beautycon’s box is always full of over $100 worth of full sized and travel sized products! I really enjoy this subscription. Check out my Unboxing of the box below as well as direct links to products and swatches.
The first product I received was the Cargo Cosmetics Around the World Eye shadow Palette that retails for $34! I own another Cargo eye shadow Palette that I really enjoy so I was excited to see this one. This contains 12 neutral shadows with 6 being matte and 6 being shimmery. It also comes with a double sided eye shadow brush. The brush isn’t very high quality but that doesn’t bother me as I have other brushes. The shadows are a mix of some being highly pigmented and some being more chalky. I found that the lighter shades didn’t show up very well on me and seem a bit powdery. The deeper shades are highly pigmented and super smooth. Overall I think this is a decent palette for the price. If you are a fan of neutrals I say check it out HERE. See swatches below.
The next product I pulled out was The BrowGal Convertible Powder to Pomade Universal Eyebrow Palette which retails for $35. This palette has 3 shades inside ranging from dark to light. I use the lightest one on my brows. I like that they sent this because I feel like everyone's brow color is covered and you can mix and match the shades for a custom look. You can use this product dry as a powder or get it wet to turn it into a pomade. I haven’t tried it wet yet but will give it a try! The color payoff is there but it isn’t too intense. It leaves such a soft natural look and a little goes along way. Check out my brow photo below! This also came with a high quality dual ended spooly/angled brow brush that I use with it and it works amazingly! I HIGHLY recommend picking up this products HERE. See swatches below.
Next up is the NYX Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Rose Petal which retails for $8. This is a cream formula that is a very pigmented coral pink color with slight shimmer in it. It can be applied right on the cheeks and it blends out and sets into a powder. The color is intense so a little goes along way. Because I have oily skin I personally am scared of cream products over my foundation. I can never seem to blend them out without disturbing my foundation or they stain my skin and don’t look right. Although this is a pretty formula I am going to pass this along to someone who has more skills than me and will use it more. Check it out HERE. See swatches below.
I also received a Dirty Little Secret Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in the color Rush which retails for $14. This is a beautiful formula that is opaque in 1 coat and lasts all day through light eating and drinking! It doesn’t dry out the lips and is super comfortable. The packaging is a cute white polka dotted container and the applicator is precise enough to give a crisp line. Check it out HERE. See swatch below and in previous brow picture.
Next up was a pack of the Garnier Micellar makeup removing towelettes valued at $6. The only time I use makeup removing wipes is to either remove hand swatches, remove lipstick when I get home, or remove my makeup before the gym. I like these because they seem to do a great job at breaking down my makeup quickly and don’t seem to leave a residue behind. I also like that they are fragrance free! Check them out HERE.
I received a Luxie 516 Duo Fiber brush valued at $22 this month. I have quite a collection of Luxie brushes now thanks to my various subscription services. This brush is vegan and is supposed to be used to blend out powders. I used it to blend out the NYX check product and it worked OK. I wish it was a bit denser but it got the job done. Check it out HERE.
I also received the IBY Beauty Mineral Pressed Blush in the color Peach Sheen valued at $14. This is a beautiful coral peach color with a gorgeous gold/champagne shimmer throughout. I have noticed the latest trend in check products is highlighter/blush combos. I don’t normally wear blush but I do really like this color and formula! It has great color payoff but isn’t too intense so it is build able. It can also be used as an eye shadow! I also heard it is a close dupe of the NARS orgasm blush. Check it out HERE. See swatches below.
Next I got a sample of the Nuxe Multipurpose Dry oil valued at $7. This is a shimmery gold oil that can be applied to the skin, hair, and face. I won’t be applying this to my face but I will try it out on my body and hair. I am saving this for my Sister Getaway Vacation to Florida in July! Check it out HERE. See swatches below.
Another hair care item I received was the OGX Orchid Oil valued at $8. This is a lightweight spray that helps protect and nourish color treated hair. You can also use it if you don’t have color treated hair such as myself. This stuff smells delicious and the bottle is super pretty. I have so many leave in hair products that I will be passing this along to someone who has color treated hair. Check it out HERE.
Overall the value this month is AMAZING at $146+! This is probably one of my favorite Beautycon boxes that I have received. I love Beautycon because they send such a variety of items at different price points and always seem to kill it! Don’t forget to subscribe HERE.
