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!

The first item I received was the Ofra Matallic Liquid Lipstick in the color Napa Valley which retails for $19.90. This is a beautiful deep violet purple color with a hint of metallic undertone. The formula is superhttps://www.ofracosmetics.com/ lightweight and has a mouse like consistency. It doesn’t transfer very much and is long lasting on the lips. Get 30% off HERE with code “Boxy30”.


The next product I received was the Beauty for Real Lip Revival Scrub which retails for $14.00. This contains raw sugar, cinnamon, orange and lemon. The packaging is luxurious looking and the smell is light. I prefer to use the Elf lip scrub that comes in a tube form that way I don’t have to use my fingers. I do plan on using this in the future though. Check it out HERE.


The next item I pulled out was Butter London Nail Polish in the color Ruby Murray. and it retails for $15.00. This is a beautiful wine color that is perfect for the fall/winter time. Butter London nail polishes have a long lasting formula that is super shiny. I can’t wait to put this on! Check it out HERE.



The next item I got was IBY Eyeliner in the color Olive Pearl which retails for $14.00. This is a beautiful olive green color with a hint of metallic. I tried using this on my top lashes to create a cat eye and I did not like it. The formula is dry so I had to tug on my delicate eye area to get a smooth line. Even when tugging the liner still had drag and didn’t come out opaque. I wish the formula was creamy because the color is stunning. Get 50% off HERE with code “BOXY1216.”


The final item I received was the Pure Cosmetics Buff Collection Palette which retails for $50.00! This is a gorgeous palette that is basically a knockoff of the Urban Decay Naked 3. The colors range from soft to deep rose gold hues. There are 3 matte shades and the rest range from shimmer to metallic shades. I don’t own the Naked 3 but judging by pictures this is very similar. The color payoff is amazing and while the shades are a bit powdery they blend out beautifully and last all day! I was super excited to get this and this makes the box super worth it! Get 25% off a purchase of $30 or more HERE with code “CHARMEDLIFE”.


Overall I loved this box! Boxycharm hasn’t let me down yet! I love that I got a variety of items and the full sized palette is so awesome! I HIGHLY recommend signing up for Boxycharm HERE
