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!

November BoxyCharm Unboxing| Over $130 value!

Hey Guys! 

Check out my November Boxycharm Unboxing Video below. I also have mini reviews under the videos as well as links to products.


BoxyCharm is $21 a month and promises 5 FULL SIZED products and is always worth over $100! I HIGHLY recommend it for any beauty lover who wants to try out new products, get full sized products, and get the most bang for your buck!


This month's theme was Groovy Town and I got 5 products. BoxyCharm sends everyone most of the same products with a couple variations depending on your profile.


The first product I received was the Vintage Illuminating Face Highlighter and this retails for $32.00. This comes in a beautiful white case that feels heavy and luxurious. This is a coral gold highlighter that could work as a highlighter or a blush topper. Since I have oily skin I never use highlighter. It always scares me and I don't ever want to look overly shiny and greasy.. Since I have gotten a couple highlighters in my latest subscription boxes I have slowly started to use them. I love this one because it has a slight sheen and is not in your face sparkle. It is very natural and gives a slight flushed coral look too. Check it out HERE. 


The next item I received was a Studio Makeup Eyeshadow Palette and this retails for $49.95.  This is a palette with 9 shadows and is similar in shape and pan size to the Kylie palettes. The colors in this palette range from creme to maroon. These shadows have good pigmentation but can be a little chalky. I wore this on my eyes for Thanksgiving and they lasted all day but needed a couple layers to blend out evenly. It's the perfect palette to travel with as you can make looks ranging from daytime to nighttime smokey! Check it out HERE



The next item was the Patchology FlashMasque Trip worth $20.00. I like that BoxyCharm sent out 3 different ones to try. One is hydrating, one is illuminating, and the other is exfoliating. These are paper sheet masks and the paper actually feels thick and sturdy and not flimsy. They form to the face well and don't slip off. I used the hydrating one and it left my skin feeling super silky and soft. I was glowing the next day! Check them out HERE. 


Next I got The Brow Gal Clear Brow Gel retailing for $20.00. I received this in a Beautycon box but have yet to try it. This is a waterproof clear brow gel that holds brows in place all day without being overly sticky or harsh looking. I can't wait to try this out once I am done with my Anastasia brow gel. Check it out HERE. 


The final product is a Studio Makeup Soft Blend Blush that retails for $17.00. This is a soft orange peach color that looks super natural. It doesn't give off a ton of pigment but is build able. I don't really like this color on me as it leaves me a bit ruddy looking but the formula is super soft. It is supposed to be long lasting and naturally brightens the face. I think it would look better on deeper skin tones. Check it out HERE. 


You just can't beat the value of a BoxyCharm box! For $21 you get 5 full sized products that are always super fun to try out! I saw sneak peeks of the December box and we are getting another eye shadow pallete and a full sized Ofra liquid lipstick! I HIGHLY recommend signing up HERE asap!
