Follow

Hey Guys!
Today I wanted to share my latest fragrances from Luxury Scent Box! Check out my Unboxing video below showing some of their latest fragrances as well as new case colors! Also under the video I have more information about the service as well as a COUPON CODE making your first box only $10! Enjoy!

 



Luxury Scent Box is a monthly Fragrance service that delivers a .30oz or 9ml bottle of perfume or cologne right to your door every month! These scents are 100% authentic designer fragrances and are available in Male and Female scents. Read until the end to find out how you can get your 1st months box for only $10!


Once you sign up, they ask you to fill out a scent profile so they can recommend fragrances that you might like. You don’t have to choose any of these and can freely search on your own what scent you want to try next. One of the features I really like is the Calendar. This allows you to pick the fragrance you are getting each month. This is great for a person like me who likes to change up my scent with each season/holiday. I like to wear more light clean scents in the spring, fruity in the summer, warm and vanilla in the fall, and musky and sultry in the winter. I love the Luxury Scent box allows me to try a new fragrance every month at a low price!


Luxury Scent Box is $15 + FREE SHIPPING! You can get $5 off your first month making it only $10 with code “CHANNINGCOUTURE5” HERE. They also have a Premium level where you get more expensive perfume as well as a new case each month. This one is only $18 or $13 with my code!



With your first box you get a colored case to hold your scent that is easy to travel with and each new fragrance pops easily into it. All you have to do is twist up and the scent is ready to use so you never have to worry about the fragrance accidentally spraying in your bag, pocket, suitcase, etc. Every quarter they also send you a new seasonally colored case to switch out.


Another great thing about this box is it is a month to month service so you can cancel at any time! This is perfect if you want to just try out 1 fragrance or even give the box as a gift! I LOVE getting people subscription boxes as gifts whether it is for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months!


I HIGHLY recommend giving this box a try. If you don’t want to get a fragrance every month just use my code and try one for $10! You can always sign up for another box when that fragrance runs out. Getting these fragrances is a STEAL and you will love trying out a new one every month I PROMISE! Don’t forget to use code “CHANNINGCOUTURE5” for $5 off your first month HERE.  Enjoy!


April Battle of the Boxes| Ipsy Vs. Play by Sephora Unboxing and Review

Hey Guys!
Today I have my Ipsy and Play by Sephora Unboxings! Both are $10 a month and full of the latest and greatest beauty goodies! Check out my video below!



Ipsy Theme: Side Show

Items: 5

Full sized: 3



The bag this month was super cool because it was shaped like a movie ticket! I love that Ipsy’s bags are becoming so different and unique!


The first item I received was a full sized Glamour Dolls Lisa Frank Angled Blush Brush that retails for $5. This is a pre-launch item meaning it is not yet available for anyone other than Ipsy subscribers. I love the Lisa Frank details on the handle because it takes me back to my childhood. The bristles are white with pink tips which also adds to the whimsical feel. I have used this brush to set my under eyes, brush away powder and to softly contour. I love it! The angle is perfect and the bristles are soft without being too soft. Pre-order your brush HERE.


The next item I received was a sample of the Aloe Soothing Gel from Hanalei. This is an aloe gel that you can smooth over the skin after sun exposure to help calm down any burns or inflammation you might experience. It helps to cool and refresh the skin and can also be used as a primer! I haven’t used this yet as I am saving it for my June Florida Vacation. Get 30% off HERE with code “ALOE30”.


Next I received the Meg Twin Nail polish in Lovey Dovey which retails for $10. This is a twin pack of a dusty nude and a blue gray polish. Since removing my acrylic nails I am trying to nurse my nails back to health so I have been keeping them bare. I love these colors and can’t wait to try them out! They seem to be more fall like colors then spring/summer so I will be holding onto them. Get 30% off HERE with code “IPSY30”.


Next I pulled out a sample of the Ciate London Mini Bamboo Bronzer in Star Island. This is a matte bronzer that also has oil controlling properties which I really like since I have oily skin. This formula is super smooth and buttery. I like to use it to softly contour my temples and cheeks along with the Lisa Frank brush I received. This color is also perfect for my skin tone without looking too harsh or orange. Get 30% off HERE with code “IPSTER”.


The final product I received was a full sized TonyMoly Liptone Lipcare in Rose Blossom that retails for $10. First off the packaging is super cute! Also, it feels AMAZING on my lips! It keeps them super moisturized and super soft. I HIGHLY recommend picking one up! They have a few other flavors! Get 20% off $45+ order plus a free gift HERE with code “IPSYTM”.


Overall I loved this bag. I thought the variety was great and am getting so much use out of the items! Don’t forget to subscribe HERE for only $10 a month!


Sephora Theme: Step it Up

Items: 6



The first item I pulled out was the Make Up For Ever XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner in Matte Black. This is such a creamy pigmented formula. I use this on my upper water line. I have super bad allergies and constantly am sneezing and have watery eyes. This means that my eyeliner usually transfers from the top to the bottom. I can never seem to find one that doesn't transfer. This one unfortunatly does transfer a little but isn't too bad. I reccommend this formula because it is smooth and creamy and is waterproof. Check it out HERE. 


The next item I received was the Sephora Collection Waterproof eye makeup remover. This is a remover that is supposed to be hydrating, and also can be used on face and eye makeup. Before using you must shake to activate the formula. I used this on my eyemakeup but not my face makeup. I put some of this on my cotton ball and wiped my eyes. It took about 2 cotton balls per eye to completley remove. It didn't sting or irritate which was nice. I recommend trying this out! Check it out HERE


Next I received 2 samples of the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic + Retinol Wrinkle Recoery Peel. This is a peel that is good for uneven skin tone, wrinkles, aging, and lack of firmneess. After cleansing you are supposed rub this on dry skin. I like that they sent 2 of these. I have never tried a peel in this form before. I haven't tried it yet but am excited to do so! If you have sensitive skin I recommend waiting a week between treatments. Check it out HERE. 


The next item I pulled out is a sample of the Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer from Smashbox. This is actually the first product that Smashbox ever created which is awesome. This primer is supposed to go on smooth, fill in fine lines, and help shrink enlarged pores. I actually don't really like this primer. It's not bad but not good at the same time. It is a little too slippery for my taste and doesn't really do anything for my oily skin. I think if you had normal or maybe dryer skin you would really like this! Check it out HERE. 


Next I pulled out the Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy Boosting Face Mask. This samples size is super great and I love this mask! This mask is supposed to provide and instant glow and help out with uneven texture and skin tone. I really like this because it makes my skin super smooth. I haven't tried it enough to see if it helps with uneven skin tone but I hope I see results soon. I HIGHLY reccomend checking it out HERE. 


The fragrance this month is Pinrose Secret Genius. This perfume is a blend of madagascar vanilla, and carmamel. This smells super warm, inviting, and soft and seems like more of a fall or winter scent. Even though I like the way this smells, it smells like a generic vanilla bodyspray. If you are a huge fan of vanilla scents I would recommend checking this out HERE. 


Spring Beautycon Unboxing+ Review!| Over $140 worth of products!

Follow

Hey guys!

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.

January Battle of the Boxes| Ipsy vs. Play by Sephora

Hey Guys!

Today I am unboxing my January Play By Sephora and Ipsy boxes/bags. Both are $10 a month! Ipsy promises 4-5 deluxe sized samples with at least 1 being full sized and Sephora offers 6 mini-deluxe sized samples with 1 always being a fragrance. Check out my Unboxing video below as well as direct links and reviews of products mentioned along with coupon codes! Subscribe to Ipsy HERE and Sephora HERE.



Ipsy theme: Metropolis Items: 6 Full sized: 4


The first items I received from Ipsy were 2 sheet masks from the Brand Sally’s Box which retail for $1.50 each. One of the things I love about Ipsy is that they always send out multiples of some products such as sheet masks and count it as 1 product! When ever I get sheet masks or eye masks from Ipsy there are usually multiples and different types for me to try. The 2 I got this month were Blueberry and Aloe masks. The blueberry is supposed to help firm and hydrate while the aloe soothes and hydrates. I used the Aloe one last night and loved that it didn’t slip down my face while wearing it and my face felt balanced and smooth when I woke up. Check them out HERE.


The next product I got was a full sized nail polish from Pretty Woman in “I Can’t Deal”. This is a grey nude shade and retails for $7.99. This shade is a great take on the nude/pastel nails that usually happen in the spring months. I have never had grey nails before but can’t wait to see what this shade looks like on! Get 30% off HERE with code “IPSY30”.


The next item I got was the full sized Coloured Raine Cosmetics Matte Lip Paint in the color Mars. This retails for $17 and is a beautiful dusty rose shade. This is the perfect deep nude color that can be worn either day or night. The formula is matte but not drying or sticky and stays on all day! I wore it all day at work and through lunch and I didn’t even need a touch up! I am really tempted to pick up more shades because they have such a wide variety of colors! They have a metallic red shade that I can’t get out of my mind! Check them out HERE.


Next I received a sample of the ModelCo blush in Peach Bellini. This is a beautiful peach blush with slight shimmer that gives cheeks a luminous glow without having to apply highlighter and blush. If you like a subtle glow I recommend giving this a try. It would also make a beautiful eye shadow! The formula is creamy and pigmented and doesn’t have leave powder every where. Check it out HERE.


The final product I received was a sample of the Smashbox Cosmetics Cameral Ready BB Cream in the Color Light. I don’t really wear BB creams because I find that they leave my skin greasy and with little to no coverage. If I want light coverage I just go bare faced most of the time. This was a tad too orange for my skin and after a couple hours it looked patchy and left my skin feeling dirty. I wouldn't recommend this. Check it out HERE.


BONUS: I did receive a FULL SIZED Limecrime Metallic Liquid Lipstick in the color Blondie after redeeming some of my Ipsy points. I love that you can earn points from reviewing products and people using your sign up link. I have gotten a ton of full sized goodies and this latest one is awesome.

 

Overall I think the products in this bag were amazing. The Matte Lip Paint was a hidden gem from a brand that I have never heard from and I love it! Subscribe to Ipsy HERE.


This month’s Play by Sephora’s theme was Beauty, Set, Go! The drawstring bag was made of cloth and mesh to look like a gym bag which was super cute! We got 5 deluxe sized samples with 1 fragrance.



The first item I got was Amore Pacific Color Control Compact Foundation which is a cushion foundation that is supposed to provide build able coverage, hydrates skin and protects with SPF. The samples Sephora sent out included 2 foundation shades and 1 mini sponge. Unfortunately the shades they sent me were way to dark. I am not sure why they sent me those. I tried to use the lightest of the too but it was very orange and streaky. I didn’t like the cushion that it came with and it seemed to take too long to apply. I am not sure that this formula would have worked for my oily skin either. Check it out HERE.


The fragrance this month was Love Relentlessly by Tory Burch. The notes in this are pink pepper, orris, and patchuli. This smells nice and fresh and light. Perfect for the upcoming spring months! I also saw a picture of the bottle and it is stunning! I probably won’t go out and buy this as the scent wasn’t very unique but I would love the bottle for my vanity. Check it out HERE.


Next I got a sample of the Tarte Frixxxtion Stick. I have been wanting to try this for so long and was so excited to see it! First of all the packaging is so cute! This is a twist up glue stick like cleanser that is a dark black with tiny microdermabrasion scrubs. You put it all over your face and cleanse. Perfect for traveling since it isn’t a liquid. I love the stick form it comes in and it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and clean. I recommend checking this out HERE.


The next product I received was the Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey. Apparently this formula and color are a cult favorite and I can see why! First off the size of this sample is amazing! The color is the perfect wash of “just ate a Popsicle and now it stained my lips”. The color this product gives is a deeper “my lips but better color” with high shine and feels super moisturizing and nourishing. I couldn’t stop putting it on my lips! It also fades really well throughout the day to a nice stain. I want to buy these in every color! Check it out HERE.


The next product I pulled out was the Treatment Masque from Ouai. This is a hair mask to help repair breakage, and make hair stronger. I used it last night and the formula is a little watery for me. Usually hair masks are thick and creamy but this one almost had the watery consistency similar to watered down leave in conditioner. I didn’t see it do amazing things for my hair. It didn’t have a strong scent either. Check it out HERE.


The final product I received was the Youth to the People Prevention Cream. This is a night time moisturizer that uses kale, spinach, and hylauranic acid to deliver antioxidants to the skin and lightly hydrate it. This feels nice and lightweight on my skin which is great and makes my skin glow when I wake up! Check it out HERE.


Overall I loved this month’s bag. The Clinique Lipstick and the Tarte Stick made the box worth it for $10! I love Play because I get to try out higher end products before I spend the money. Subscribe to Play by Sephora HERE.


January BoxyCharm Unboxing and Review! |+ Imperial Glamour Beauty Box Unboxing!

Hey guys!
Today I am showing you what I received in my January Boxycharm. Boxycharm is $21 a month and promises 5 FULL SIZED beauty/makeup products worth over at least $100! I always get my moneys worth from Boxycharm which makes me excited every month. Check out my Unboxing Video below as well as direct links to products below that. Subscribe to Boxycharm HERE.



The first product I received was Gorge Konjac Sponge worth $18. This is a natural sponge that you soak in water to soften then use to exfoliate the face. It can be used with or without a cleanser. It is made from 100% natural Konjac root and naturally balances the skin’s PH levels and is great for sensitive skin. I love the feeling of this on my skin and the fact that it has a string attached for easy storage in my shower. Check it out HERE.


The next product I got was the Adesse Ultra Suede Matte Top Coat worth $18. This is a top coat you paint on your nails to give them a smooth matte effect. I always like my nails to be as glossy and shiny as possible but I am excited that I received a matter top coat to play around with. I might do a matte accent nail or even try making all my nails matte! Check it out HERE.



Next up I received the So Susan Fan Brush worth $18.95. This fan brush is perfect for highlighting the face. The fan brush I previously owned was from Elf and super flimsy so I was excited to receive a brush I needed a new one of. I wish the bristles were a bit less flimsy though. Check it out HERE.


Next I got the Pur Mineral Glow Bronzer which retails for $25. This is a beautiful bronzer that I like to dust all over for a glow and even bring down my neck. It blend flawlessly into the face and I love the huge pan size! It has a slight shimmer in it but nothing crazy. I prefer bronzers with a slight shimmer/glow to them as this makes it look more natural and radiant. I HIGHLY recommend this. Check it out HERE.


The final product I received was the Vintage Highlighter Double worth $35. This is a dual highlighter with the colors Pink Quartz and Chocolate Diamond. The Chocolate Diamond shade is perfect to dust over the body over the Pur bronzer to add to your beachy glow. The Pink Quartz is a pretty everyday highlighter shade. I don’t use highlighter that often as I have oily skin but I am slowly building up the courage to use it. These pan sizes are huge as well. Such a great deal! Check it out HERE.


Overall I enjoyed my box. I got products such as the brush and highlighters that I wouldn’t normally use but am excited to try! I love the Bronzer and hope that it lasts me a long time. I HIGHLY recommend giving Boxycharm a try especially if you like getting full sized makeup/beauty products for only $21 a month! This month’s box had a value of over $115 which is crazy!

Winter Beautycon Unboxing| Video+ Reviews!

Hi Guys!

Today I am bringing you my unboxing and review of the Winter Beautycon box! Beautycon is a seasonal or quarterly box that retails for $35.99 and is curated by the latest YouTube/social media influencer! Whoever curates the box packs it full of their current favorite beauty, makeup, skincare and fashion goodies! Save some $$ by signing up HERE. 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 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!

October Battle of the Boxes| Ipsy Vs. Play by Sephora

Hey guys!

Today I am reviewing my October Ipsy and Play by Sephora boxes. Both are $10 a month and are beauty subscription services. Ipsy promises 4-5 deluxe size samples with at least 1 being full sized. Sephora promises 6 samples with 1 always being a fragrance. Check out my video below as well as my in depth reviews with product links and discount codes. 



Ipsy Bag: Halloween Design Items: 5 Full-sized: 2 Theme: Black Magic


This month’s bag was designed by Valfre. They create really cute phone cases! Check them out HERE and get 25% off with code “IPSY25.”


The first item I pulled out was Sally’s Box Aqua Moist Gel Cream. This is a moisturizer that is supposed to really hydrate the skin using roses, chamomile and lavender. I like using this at night because it doesn’t have SPF. I also like using gel type moisturizers on my oily skin. This sinks in super quick and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and fresh. Not greasy and heavy. I like it! Check it out HERE.


The next item is a full sized Ciate London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner. This retails for $19. For a girl who wears cat eyes every day I was super excited to see this! And it is full sized which is an added bonus! This a great felt tipped eyeliner that glides on smoothly. It isn’t 100% opaque but it is buildable. It lasts all day without flaking or cracking. Get 30% off HERE with code “IPSTER.”


Next I pulled out a sample size of the Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Coverage Foundation. The color I received was Y225 Marble. This foundation promises invisible coverage, light texture, and lasts all day without needing to set with a powder. I was super excited to receive this as I rarely get to try out higher end foundations. The sample is a decent size with enough products for about a week of wear depending on the amount you use. Unfortunately I really don’t like this. The coverage is too sheer for me. The redness and discoloration on my cheeks peeks through no matter how much product I use. It also doesn’t seem to agree with my oily skin as I get shiny quickly and the foundation breaks up on my face. I do set this with a powder with this still happening. The shade is a tiny bit light for me as well. I wouldn’t recommend this for oily girls but if you have normal skin with little imperfections I would recommend it. It does feel super light on the face and not cakey. Check it out HERE.


Next I received a full sized Kokie Cosmetics Nail polish in the color Heavenly. This retails for $6. This is a BEAUTIFUL lavender blue color and the packaging is super cute! This has a glossy finish, long wearing, and chip resistant. I have yet to try this color but I will be pulling it out soon! I love Ipsy because they always send full sized polishes in the cutest colors! Get 25% off HERE with code “IPSY25”.


The final item I got was a sample of the Trust Fund Beauty Gimme Good Face Face Primer. This Primer is supposed to blur lines and wrinkles. I don’t really have any of those yet so I can’t tell if it does this or not. It has a more slippery silicon texture that works ok with my oily skin. Since it is cooling down a bit it works better but if I am hot and sweaty I find these types make my makeup slide off quicker. I like other primers better but I am glad I was able to try this. Get 40% off HERE with code “IPSYGLAM”.


Overall I loved this month’s variety like always! Even though I was disappointed in the foundation I am glad Ipsy sent out a higher end foundation that I know a lot of people (including myself) want to try. I absolutely love the full sized liquid liner and will be using the gel cream up! Subscribe to Ipsy HERE: Only $10!!! (Also makes a great holiday gift)

 


Sephora Bag: Lipstick & Chill Theme: The Cool Cut Items: 6


Sephora is starting to do different variety boxes tailored more individually and I love it!

It is so much better when companies tailor the products they send out to the individual because then most people can actually use every item in the bag/box.


The first item I received was a sample of the Blinc Amplified Mascara. This came in INTENSE packaging. It was in a metal tube that was covered in yellow plastic. The actual mascara is in a nice silver tube. The brush is super full and fluffy, just the kind I like. This is marketed as a “tube” mascara. It is supposed to deposit tubes on the ends of your lashes to create length and drama. It also only needs water to remove at the end of the day. Overall I don’t think this mascara works for me. It gives me a nice natural effect but I am more into volume and length. It doesn’t flake throughout the day and come off easily at night though. If you like more Natural mascara give this one a go. Check it out HERE.


Next I received a sample of the Christophe Robin Regenerating Hair Mask. This contains rare prickly pair seed oil that is supposed to deeply nourish and hydrate the strands. I haven’t tried this yet but it looks like a nice thick creamy texture. The only thing I don’t like is the smell. Is smells like a diaper. Not a dirty one but it has the scent of baby powder mixed with something else, like a baby wipe. I am not a fan and hope my hair doesn’t smell like that after using. Check it out HERE.


Next I got a sample of the Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel. This is a peel that you rub on your face in circular motions and it rolls up the dead skin on your face so you can see what you are removing. This got rid of so much dead skin and my face felt super smooth after! It also didn’t dry it out! I really enjoy it! Check it out HERE.


The next item I received was a sample of the Belif True Cream Aqua Bomb. I actually tried this in one of my FREE Sephora Classes (check it out HERE). This is from a Korean Beauty company and promises instant hydration with a cooling gel feel. This smells so good and feels great on my oily skin! For oily skin I love using gel moisturizers because they don’t make me feel overly greasy or make my skin heavy. I really enjoy using this at night since it doesn’t have SPF. Check it out HERE.


Next I got a sample of the Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick in the Color Driver’s Seat. This is supposed to last 8 hours and be comfortable on the lips. The color I got is a bricky red orange. I love it! I didn’t have this color in my collection and it is the perfect nude for fall/winter. Even thought the formula is matte it didn’t dry out my lips while wearing it. I put this on when I got to work and immediately ate a cream filled doughnut and nothing came off! I love it! I want to check out their other colors! The size that Sephora sent out is amazing as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Check it out HERE.


Sephora always sends out a fragrance every month and this month I got YSL Mon Paris. This is a super sultry musky night time scent. It is a heavy musk but has so much sexiness to it. Perfect for fall/ winter date nights. I feel this would be too heavy for day time. I actually enjoy the smell and recommend you go sniff it in stores! Check it out HERE.


Overall the Sephora Bag/box was great. I loved the variety of items and I thought the sizes were decent. My favorite item is the Smashbox Liquid Lipstick!! Sign up for Play by Sephora for $10 a month HERE. ( It also makes a great gift for makeup lovers)

Fall BeautyCon Unboxing and Review| MakeupShayla & Mac_Daddy!

Hey Guys!

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. Check out the glue HERE.



The next item was the Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer. This is a sample size. I received this product in a Birchbox a while back and I really like it. I am almost out of my other one so this came at the perfect time. This is basically a hybrid of a lip balm and gloss in one. It leaves a shiny moisturized finish packed with vitamins. It also smells delicious like roses. I will be throwing this in my desk at work to put on during the winter. I also like to top matte lipsticks with this for some added hydration and shine. Check it out HERE.


The next item is a fashion item. It is a Laser Kitten Sweetheart Lipstick Pin and retails for $12. Pins are super trendy at the moment and I love this one. It is a tiny tube of red lipstick that will go perfectly on my new jean jacket. You can also stick it on a lanyard, blazer, or tote bag! I love pins because they can add a cool new element to any look at a relatively inexpensive price. Check it out HERE.


The next item is a full sized Luxie Beauty Large Angled 504 Brush. This retails for $16 and has a pretty pink handle with super soft brushes. I own a couple Luxie brushes already and the quality and feel is amazing. I will be using this to brush on blush and maybe even highlighter on the rare occasion that I wear it. I wish they would have included another brush as well. Check it out HERE.


The next item was a Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow in the color Bella Café. This is full sized and retails for $5. I actually just bought 3 of these Bella Eyes at the Dollar Tree and love how they feel! This color is a light taupey brown that unfortunately doesn’t have a lot of color payoff. This is a bummer because the 3 colors that I got at the Dollar Tree were super pigmented. Check it out HERE.


Next we got a sample the Mystic Tan Mocha Kyssed Bronze lotion. This is a self tanner that has instant color payoff and also build a deeper color over time. It isn’t supposed to have a strong self tanner scent and is good for all skin tones. I haven’t used this yet but I am excited too. I have never used a product from Mystic Tan but I have heard great things about their products. I am hoping this one doesn’t have a strong self tanner scent as this bothers me. I feel like there is enough product in the tube to get at least 2 full body uses out of it. Check it out HERE.


The next item is my favorite in the whole box. It is a sample of the OFRA Long lasting liquid lipstick in Mocha. This color is beautiful! It is a perfect nude for many skin tones and feels amazing on the lips. It goes on opaque, stays on all day and doesn’t dry out the lips. I am hooked! I highly recommend picking one of these up. Get 30% off HERE with code Beautycon.


Next we got a sample pack of Simple Facial Cleansing wipes. This pack contains 7 wipes. Simple is not an expensive brand so I wish they would have sent out a full size bag. In previous boxes they have sent out full sized makeup wipes so I think they could have done that this time. Check it out HERE.


We also got 5 lipstick sour gummies from Sugarfina. These were super yummy but again I wish we would have gotten a few more. But the lip shape was super cute!


The final item was a sheet of stickers with fun sayings and fashion items on them. This would be perfect to put in a planner.


Overall I think this box was OK. This on was more makeup focused versus the last couple boxes which had both makeup and skincare. Compared to other boxes I feel like this one was lacking in sizes, and quantities. I wish the samples were bigger and there were more products in them. I can’t wait to see who curates the next box! Usually holiday boxes are the best! Subscribe to Beautycon HERE.

August Battle of the Boxes | Ipsy Vs. Play by Sephora

Follow

Hey Guys!

Today I have my August Battle of the Boxes Ipsy vs. Play by Sephora for you. Both are $10 a month subscription services that let you try out the latest makeup and skincare products. Ipsy guarantees 4-5 deluxe sized samples with at least 1 being full sized while Sephora usually has 5-6 sample sizes with 1 always being a fragrance.



Ipsy’s theme this month was Sugar Highness and you could get 2 different bag designs. Both were designed by Ipsy co-founder Michelle Phan which is really awesome! I got 6 items with 4 being full sized! I will also have coupon codes for the brands in this months bag. The codes don’t have to be used on the items I mention.



The first item I received was a full sized Dermelect 'ME' Peptide Infused Lacquer in UNSCRIPTED nail polish. This retails for $14 and is infused with ingredients to help weak brittle nails stay strong and healthy. Here are some of the other claims from their site:

·         strengthens weak, brittle nails

·         restores flexibility

·         helps resist chipping and splitting

·         superior extended wear

·         water and detergent resistant

·         UV protected

·         DBP, Toluene & Formaldehyde free

·         cruelty free- no animal testing, ever!

 The color I got is a beautiful medium toned Lilac! I actually have a similar color to this that I love! I think it is perfect for spring/summer so I will be holding on to this till next season. If I didn’t just wear this color I would have put it one! Get 20% off HERE with code Ipsy-20.


The next items I received were 2 Sally's Box Secret Garden Ampoule Masks. One of the things I love about Ipsy is they not only count sending 2 of the same thing as 1 product but the fact that they send multiples of things that need more than one try before you can see if it works or not. These retail for $6 each and the 2 I got were the Olive Oil Mask which nourishes skin and helps diminish the look of fine lines and the Camellia Oil Mask which gives you a radiant glow. These masks are cool because they are 2 step sheet masks. You first rip the top open and pat the serum all over your face. Then you put the sheet mask that is also damp with ingredients over your face to help really seal in the skincare benefits. After you take it off you pat the remaining products into your skin and you’re done! I used the Olive Oil one and my skin instantly felt soft, smooth and radiant! Check them out HERE.


The next item I received was a travel size of the Sympan Beauty ONE Moisture Cream which retails for $20. According to their site, these are tested on every skin type, is great at wrinkle reduction, increases skin firmness and brightens! Check out the other benefits below:

·         Bendable with all foundations, powders and primers

·         Instantly evens skin tone

·         Chocked-full of super succulent aloe–ultra moisturizing and calming

I use this cream at night because it doesn’t have SPF in it. It has an interesting scent that is neither good nor bad. It is a super rich cream that just melts into my skin. I feel like it is super moisturizing but as someone with oily skin I do notice my skin feeling a little greasier in the morning after I have used it. This doesn’t bother me too much as I wash my face off in the morning but if you have oily skin I wouldn’t recommend using this during the day. I also haven’t seen any improvement with my skin tone yet. Fingers crossed! Get 30% off HERE with the code IPSY30.


The next product I received was a sample size of the IT Cosmetics No-Tug Waterproof Mini Gel Eyeliner in black. As someone who suffers from year round allergies and sneezes a lot I have been on the hunt for an eyeliner that I can tight line my top lashes without it smudging to my bottom ones. Their website says it is a smooth formula that glides on without damaging delicate lids. I would have to agree that this glides on so smooth and is super pigmented! I usually find that super creamy formulas tend to move around on my eyes but this one stays put! It only transfers to my lower lash line a tiny bit but if you don’t sneeze a million times a day like I do I think you will find that it stays put all day! It also removes easily with waterproof eye makeup remover. Check it out HERE.


The final product in my Ipsy bag this month was a full sized Beau Gachis Paris Pro Series Applicator Sponge. This retails for $12 and is comparable to the BeautyBlender. I recently got into using my beloved BeautyBlender for foundation so I was excited to try this one out and see how they compare. Here are some of their claims from their website: This latex-free wonder is stiff enough for precise application of cream blushes and highlighters, as well as foundation. It is also safe for anyone allergic or sensitive to latex, blends better than a brush or your fingers and has a unique teardrop shape is easy to hold and maneuver. I found that this does apply foundation great but not as great as my BeautyBlender. What I actually find this perfect for is patting powder on my face. I cover one side in powder then press it on my skin and I find this makes my large pores smaller and helps set everything nicely. It also cleans easily and can be used damp or dry. Get 25% off HERE with code beautifulipster25.


Overall my Ipsy this month had a great variety. One of my favorite things about Ipsy is all the different items you try out are so diverse and at many different price points. My favorite item is the sponge. Subscribe to Ipsy HERE


This month’s Play by Sephora theme was The Eye Openers and we receive 6 samples. None are full sized which is OK with me. I know that Sephora has higher priced items so as long as the samples are big enough to try I don’t mind them being smaller.



The first item was the Lancôme Énergie de Vie The Smoothing & Glow Boosting Liquid Moisturizer. The website claims this is good for all skin types and refreshes, protects and hydrates skin to get rid of uneven skin tone and dryness. I like to pat this on in the evenings as my serum before moisturizer so it can really sink in over time. I don’t use it during the day because I don’t like to add more products to my oily skin during the day. I find that when I wake up after using this I have a glow! A little goes along way with this as well. It smells clean and fresh and feels luxurious on the skin. Check it out HERE.


 

The next item was a sample of the Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Eye Lifting Balm. For an expensive eye cream sample I must say this is a great size! I use this eye cream at night and find that it sinks in really well and doesn’t leave a heavy sticky feeling behind that I find a lot of other eye creams do. This one is supposed to quickly reduce dark circles, puffiness, and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. This sinks in quickly and has a nice pleasant scent. I haven’t seen results yet but I know with skincare it can take a while. Check it out HERE.


The next item was a sample size of the SEPHORA COLLECTION Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof in the color flirting game. This is a super creamy eye pencil and the color is a purplely taupe color. Super beautiful! I am excited to use it to create a smokey eye which I learned how to do in my latest FREE Sephora class! Check out my write up HERE. I find that this is super long wearing and highly pigmented. The color also goes perfectly with the next item from the box. Check it out HERE.


The next item was a sample size of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadow Eye shadowin the color I-544. This can be depotted an put into a Z pallet which I plan to do. It is a perfect brownish purple that goes perfectly with the liner above. I think both would create an amazing smokey eye together. I also like wearing this lighting on my lip during the day. It blends out beautifully and doesn’t crease when using a primer! This formula comes in a ton of different shades so check them out HERE.


To finish off the look I received a baby sample of the Urban Decay Perversion mascara in black. I have tried this mascara before and honestly love it! It has a medium dry/wet formula and grabs on and plumps up every lash creating volume and length. It is also a super black color and doesn’t flake off during the day. It also removed easily at night. It gives the perfect false lash effect as well. Check it out HERE.


The fragrance we received this month was CLEAN Reserve Blonde Rose. This is a very classic feminine scent that leans a bit too mature for me. I wasn’t a fan of this scent because it was too heavy. If you are into mature rose scents you might like this! Check it out HERE.


Overall I feel the sample sizes in Play by Sephora were great and I loved all the items. I liked the focus on the eyes this month especially after going to my Sephora makeup class. Check my review out HERE. My favorite item is the eye shadow. Sign up for Play by Sephora HERE


Overall I think both boxes/bags were great. I wasn’t disappointed in anything except the fragrance. Both had such a great variety and I got to try out some awesome things!

Scenteor monthly perfume subscription Review| Tips on making fragrance last all day long!

Follow

Hey Guys!

Today I have a new monthly subscription to share with you from Scenteor. Scenteor is a Canadian based company that ships their boxes worldwide. I have converted the prices to US dollars the best I can. To get a more accurate price please check out their website here.



Scenteor has hundreds of brand name and designer perfumes that you can try before you buy! I love fragrances and perfumes but they are so expensive! I like that I get to choose my scent and try it out for a month before I either decide to purchase the full size or move on to the next.


Each month you get to choose a travel size spray of perfume. All the perfumes are brand name and there are no imitations. Once you choose your perfume Scenteor sends you the spray along with a travel compartment and sleeve. Check out my video above to see what I mean.


Each month you get a new spray that pops easily into the black cartridge to keep it from spraying at random times. The scent I chose my first month is Viva La Juicy from Juicy Couture. I have always wanted to try this perfume but never wanted to spend the money on it just in case I didn’t like it. This smells so warm and sweet. It’s the perfect fall/winter scent. Get your first month 25% off HERE with code "channingcouture". 


Scenteor also has a new VIP box which sends you 3 different designer fragrances in your choice of 9 different cases. Get 20% off your VIP box with code "channing20" HERE. 


If you fall in love with a scent you can get 15% off plus FREE SHIPPING here with code   This is so great because I feel like most places that sell fragrances rarely have sales and if they do they definitely don’t ship them worldwide for free!


I think Scenteor is a great gift for anyone! I can see teenagers and adults liking it. If you like to switch up your scent often I think this is the perfect way to do it without buying bottle after bottle of $60+ perfume!


Now for my scent boosting tips:

1. Moisturize! If I can get a body wash, body lotion and perfume in the same scent I do! Body washes are harder to find but usually perfumes or body sprays have a lotion that goes with them. I personally only buy lotions with perfumes I wear a lot! Otherwise my vanity would be littered with lotions and perfumes. If you change up your scent a lot like me I either go with an unscented lotion or a fresh scented one. That way it doesn’t compete or alter your perfume on top. Scents stick to moisturized skin better then dry skin and let’s be honest, skin looks and feels better with a bit of moisture.

 

2. I also like to spray my scent into my hair especially if I am wearing my hair down. I usually spray a little cloud in front of me and walk through in order to evenly disperse the scent in my hair. I also like to do this before an event where I might be hugging people that way they get a sniff when they go in for the hug. Scents seem to grasp onto hair better then clothing for whatever reason. I also find that you might not be able to smell your scent as the day goes on but I always smell it when it is in my hair and my hair is moving or blowing around.

3. I wear fragrance 2 ways. I usually mist a body spray all over my body since it isn’t as heavy or over whelming as a perfume. If I am wearing a heavy perfume I like to put it on my pulse points. Putting a scent on your pulse points allows the body to naturally disperse it into the air. Popular pulse points for fragrance are the wrists, backs of the knees, and behind the ears. Don't rub your wrists together though! This can crush the notes and alter the scent. Sometimes I add a little Vaseline to these areas beforehand to make the scent really stick.

4. And the #1 rule is don’t go overboard! Scent is such a personal thing and many people can be sensitive to it. I know that we all want to smell nice but there is a line between smelling good and smelling like you fell into your perfume bottle. Remember, less is more.

Kandee Johnson Beautycon BFF Unboxing and Review| Summer 2016

Follow

Hey Guys!

Today I am unboxing the Summer 2016 Beautycon box curated by Kandee Johnson. Beautycon is a seasonal/quarterly box and it is $29.99. This box is jam packed with Kandee Johnson's favorite skincare and makeup products to keep your skin summer ready. She has oily skin like me so I was excited to get products geared toward my skin type. This box has a value of over $160!


The first item was the Redken Fashion Waves Sea Salt Spray valued at $19.50.  This is a full sized bottle of texturizing spray to give your hair that sexy beachy look. I have such long thick hair that these kinds of products never seem to work in my hair. I am going to be putting this in my Giveaway stash. 



The next item is the Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil valued at $10. This is a full sized bottle of oil that you use to remove your eye and face makeup before you cleanse. I have really been getting into using products like this lately and I love that it also removes waterproof eye makeup. You use it on a dry face too which I found interesting. I like this because it isn't heavy and it is great at removing eye makeup quickly. I recommend. 


Next up was the Cover Fx Contour brush valued at $38. This is a dual ended brush made for contouring the cheeks and smaller areas like the nose. I do not contour so I won't be using this for that. It is a really nice soft brush that I feel would be great for concealer or foundation. It doesn't look like any contour brush that I have ever seen. I will be putting this in my Giveaway pile. 


Next was a baby sample of the VersaSpa Gradual Tan Face Moisturizer.  This is a tanning face moisturizer that you can use day or night. It is always good to use a moisturizer or tanner that is made for the face because it is more delicate and doesn't clog your pores as easily. I do fake tan my body so I am excited to try this out and hope it doens't break me out.


The next item I received was the Smashbox Eye Brow Tech Shaping Powder valued at $25. This is a full sized brow powder that uses a felt tip liner applicator. It is cool because you basically just line your eyes with this powder to get a soft look. The only thing I don't like about this is that it doesn't draw on the skin very well so I have to go in with a brow pencil to fill in the front part of my brows. Overall it is a really cool product to try. 


The next item is a Nyx Jumbo eye pencil in the color Cashemere and it is valued at $8. This is a full sized eye pencil that can be used as an eye shadow base or all over the eyes as a shadow. It is super creamy and pigmented and I love the soft shimmer look it gives. 


Another item from Nyx I received was the Ombre Lip duo in Peaches & Cream and it is valued at $12. This has a darker orange shade on one end that you use to line to lips and a lighter color on the other end that you use to fill in and create an ombre effect. I have pictures down below showing the different colors. Both colors are pretty drying. The darker shade is opaque and I put it on alone with a gloss overtop  and this helped make it wearable. The lighter shade was patchy, dry, and not flattering on me on it's own. The ombre lip I created was cool but not something I would wear alot.

The first shot below is the ombre, second is the dark color, third is the light color and the final is the dark shade with lip gloss over it. 


Next was the Benzac Clearing Hydrator Treatment valued at $10. This is a hydrating acne treatment that also controls oil. I use this after I cleanse and tone my face and then use a mosturizer after that has SPF in it. I feel like this does control my oil a bit but the smell is so strong! It actually makes me gag when I use it. I like what it does for my face and the scent goes away once it is dry but it is pretty potent. 


Next up was the Garnier Clearly Brighter Day Moistruizer valued at $12. This is a full sized bottle with SPF 15 that I use every morning before I put on makeup. It is lightweight which is perfect for my oily skin and as a nice clean scent. It helps to brighten and smooth out skin tone for a more even complexion. I am hoping this helps with post acne scarring that I always get. I am liking it so far and it doesn't seem to make my skin any more oily. 


We also received a deluxe sized sample of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof mascara. I love the original Better Than Sex so I can't wait to use this when I go swimming or to the beach and I am glad I get to try it. 


The final items were little samples of the LA Fresh Face Cleanser Towelettes and the LA Fresh Instant Cooling Body Towelettes


This box was such a great value for $29.99! I always look forward to my Beautycon box and can't wait to see who picks the products for the next one.

Target Beauty Box Unboxing and Review!

Hey guys! Target released another Beauty Box and I was lucky enough to snag one before they were sold out!

Target releases beauty boxes at random but usually there is a new one every month. Sometimes they release multiple different kinds, sometimes a men's one, and sometimes just one. The prices for the boxes also usually range between $5 and $15. This current box was $7 and has over $30 worth of products that can be found at Target.


 

The only other budget friendly store that I know of that has Beauty Boxes is Walmart. Walmart's is different because it is a subscription service and comes out every season, so about 4 times a year. It is also $5. I wish Target would have an automatic sign up for their boxes so that you don't have to scramble to get the box before it is sold out. I post on my Instagram when new boxes come out so make sure you follow me there. Link is below.

This box had a great variety of items and everything was the perfect size to try out. My favorite item is the Skinfix lip balm. I love these types of lip balms to wear on their own or over lipstick.
