Janary 2015 Boxycharm
Hi charming gals! I recently started delving out into makeup, and found this subscription box. I've gone back and forth on whether to start posting it so be sure to let me know if you'd like to see this each month.
This is a monthly box for 21 dollars shipped and features 4-5 deluxe beauty samples or full-size products. Thus so far it's been four full-size and one deluxe size each month (this is month number four for me). I get billed the third of the month and don't get it till around the 21st of the month. It's hard not to be impatient for all my awesome goodies and I've fallen deeply in love with several products that I'll be repurchasing when I run out.
So onto this month. The theme was Celebrate in Style:
Beauty For Real Lip Pencil (full-size 14.00): This is supposed to be a shade to compliment all lip and skin tone types and can be paired with any lip color. Not sure how much I believe this, but I do like the color and I feel like it wears really well. I'm not too well versed in lip pencils, but this is firm, yet applies nicely.
Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream in "Always There" (full-size 22.00): This one I was really unsure of, but I've worn it several times and really fallen in love with it. It has a doe foot applicator and goes on glossy, but dries into more of matte. Super wearable although it does feather after a few hours without a lip liner. Which is probably why they sent the pencil too. As a bonus it has a light in the lid and a mirror on the side!
Mirabella Face Primer (full-size 29.00): So this is a face primer with vitamin E oil in it. I don't use face primers since I'm pretty oily and they tend to exacerbate the problem so I'll be giving this one to a friend who adores primers.
Pur-lisse Skin Sparkle Flash Tattoos (1 sheet 12.00): Ok so I've been seeing this trend pop up a LOT. The shiny gold and silver body tattoos. I think it's more of a summer look, BUT these are amazing as nail decals. I do have a look coming featuring these.
Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum (full-size 47.00): This was the show stopper. It's a huge bottle and it smells soooo good. I was definitely nervous about the bronzing aspect, but what it actually does is even out skin tone and give it a "glow". I've added it to my nightly routine and I am loving the results. It doesn't break me out or increase my oil production. It's totally awesome!
All in all this was a great box even if it felt more like a summer themed box by the contents. If you are interested in trying it out here's my referral link. I hope you enjoyed this and consider giving this box a go. It's got so much to offer especially to some of us just starting our foray into the world of makeup. Have a great evening all!
