Petit Vour Unboxing March 2023

The Petit Vour box is $15 a month and contains clean and vegan beauty products (4-5).

Fit Glow Beauty Plum Lash Primer $28

“A lash conditioning primer that instantly coats your lashes with superfood ingredients for fuller, thicker and stronger lashes. The plum hued formula delivers clump free volumizing lift…”

I’ve wanted to try a lash primer, so this is perfect!

Juice Beauty Prebiotix Instant Flash Facial $10

“ A facial, exfoliating mask and cleanser all in one.” I plan on trying this in all the different ways you can use it, lord knows my skin needs it.

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Moroccan Beauty Oil $21

This is delivers dermal vitality, uplifts tone, and deeply moisturizers. I am really weary of oils on my face. My skin jumps from oily to dry so fast, and I’m afraid using oils will make my breakouts even worse. I may pass this along to a friend.

Goldfadden MD Needle-less Line Smoothing Concentrate $15

I got two! So I may give one to my mom. It’s supposed to be a non-invasive solution to prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

That is it for my Petit Vour box! What is your favorite vegan skincare item? Comment below!

Ipsy Glam Bag February 2023

Let’s try to get back to regularly posting! For this post I present you my Ipsy Bag from February 2023.

To start, the bag itself is really cute and seems to be of great quality.

Plum Color Affair “Be Good”

The first item is this cute little nail Polish. It’s a maybe with some glitter in it. I’m not big in glitter, but this could be a really good color for spring.

Lafco New York Body Lotion “Champagne “

I got a little body lotion that will be great to use in my turn and burn project pan! It has notes of ginger, grapefruit, and raspberry. It’s a thin consistency, but it smells amazing.

Marc Anthony Grow Long Super Fast Strength Leave in Conditioner

I have the shampoo and conditioner from this line and I don’t really like them. I am hoping I feel differently about the leave in conditioner. It has the same scent as the shampoo and conditioner, I just hope it lingers longer.

Ciaté Glow to Go Illuminating Blush “Matchmaker”

I have had one of these in the past, but the color was way way too light. This one seems like it will be better for my skin tone. I’m excited to give it a try.

Unfiltered Wake Up Call Quad “Morning Brew”

In this quad there are two mattes and two shimmers. I thought it looked really pretty and had high hopes, but after swatching the shadows those hopes are dashed. They just aren’t good quality. I will be passing this along.

Thank you so much for reading 👻

Be on the look out for new posts from me.

BoxyCharm Premium | April 2022

It’s BoxyCharm time! I know sometimes you can get some stuff in this box that you will never use, I still get excited when it shows up on my door step.

BoxyCharm Premium retails for $38 and contains 5-6 full sized beauty products

Natasha Denona Cupid Cheek Duo $42

I always love getting Natasha Denona products in BoxyCharm. I get so hyped. This is a cream blush and powder highlight duo.

It seems like the cream blush may take a bit to build up and I’m not sure how I feel about the highlight. I am going to give this duo a try, but I may end up passing this on to a friend.

Herbivore Botanicals Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Smoothing Serum $54

I’m looking forward to trying a product from Herbivore! I have never tried a retinol alternative, but I do have high hopes for this product.

“A naturally derived plant based serum that smooths the appearance of fine lines and winkles and visibly fights signs of aging without synthetics or irritating effects. Gentle enough for most sensitive skin types, Bakuchiol supports surface cell turnover with its retinoic effect.”

Murad Skin Smoothing Polish $39

This Polish is meant to be ideal for oily, combination, or acne prone skin. I have oily, acne prone skin, so I am hoping that this product makes a difference. If it does I may just have to purchase it outright myself.

Mitchell and Peach English Leaf Body Oil $68

I use a body oil after I shower and I’m running a bit low on my current oil, so this arrived with great timing. It has a sweet but earthy smell, and I’m super into it.

MyBeautyBrand ByMe Black Liquid Eyeliner $20

This seems like a basic felt tip liquid liner. I do prefer brush tips, but I’m sure this liner is fine. I will add it to my growing liquid liner collection.

Endota Hydrating Lip Balm $25

I don’t think I have ever owned such an expensive lip balm, so I am interested to see how well this one works.

I’m okay with this box! I wish the Natasha Denona Cheek Duo was of different quality, but I’m pretty happy about everything else.

What was in your BoxyCharm this month?? What product are you most interested in? Comment below!

Ipsy Glam Bag December 2021

My December glam bag arrived before my November glam bag.

The Ipsy Glam Bag is $11 a month and comes with five usually sample sized beauty products.

Ahava Mineral Hand Cream

This hand cream smells fine. It has a rather floral scent. It is very moisturizing. I am going to toss this is my bag to use through out the day while I’m at work.

Benefit Cosmetics POREfessional Hydrate Primer

I believe I have tried a sample of this before and it worked fine. I am going to toss this in the drawer with the rest of my sample sized primers where it will probably be forgotten.

The Beauty Crop Fineapple Powder Brush F203

This powder brush is really cute and very soft. I think I am going to get a lot of use out of it.

Ofra Cosmetics Blush in Chameleon

This is such a pretty shade of blush! It’s pretty pigmented and soft so there is some powder kick up. Nonetheless I think I am going to be using this blush a ton.

LYS Speak Love Glossy Lip Treatment Oil

This is a really nice lip treatment. It feels really moisturizing on the lips without feeling sticky.

What was in your ipsy bag?? I know I’m super happy with mine!

November 2021 BoxyCharm Base Box Unboxing

The BoxyCharm base box is $25 a month and contains 5 full sized ( sometimes deluxe sample sized) products.

Let’s get into this months unboxing!

Glow on 5th Refresh and Reset Brightening Mud Mask $30

I have yet to try this mask but, I am excited to! It is infused with ginger root and taurine to re-energize skin and minimize fatigue, boost circulation, and help with rehydration.

This sounds exactly like what I need right now. My skin has not been the best.

Trèstique Foundation Stick “Crete Cloud” $30

I was kind of skeptical about this product. Then I tried it. It gave my skin a luminous look with a nice medium coverage. The stick has an attached sponge ( which I didn’t try). The case is also refillable, which I think is great!

Seraphine Botanicals Primrose and Cream Lip and Cheek Cream Palette $42

The creams apply well over powder and give the cheeks a nice kiss of color. I do not like them on the lips however, they don’t really give off much color payoff when applied to the lips.

Trust Fund Beauty Better Than Therapy Lip Oil $18

This is a really nice lip oil. It feels very soothing and hydrating. I do like that it’s clear so it can easily be applied with out a mirror. I have been using this at night and my lips actually are doing much better.

Amnh Skincare Unicorn Dreams Body Butter $20

I am in love with this body butter. It feels really good on the skin and smells fantastic! It does look a little greasy, but that doesn’t bother me I use it at night and my skin is covered up anyway. I would definitely purchase this product when I run out.

That’s all for my unboxing!

I’m pretty happy with this months box. I am going to get use out of all the products. I am excited to see what next month brings.

BoxyCharm Premium November 2021

I have no self control and I resubscribed to BoxyCharm. This is the Premium box and I believe the price recently increased so it’s somewhere between $35-$39.

Persona Cosmetics Identity Two Palette $42

This was the item I picked. This palette is beautiful and I think it’s the perfect color story for the fall and winter months. Though I am going to use it all year round.

Every shade is very pigmented and buttery! They are super easy to work with. They really do blend like a dream.

Rodial Blush Drops $50 “Sunset Kiss”

The card says this is a new launch.

The color is buildable and easy to blend out. It really made my skin looked flushed, healthy, and glowing. I really love these liquid blush drops.

Peach & Lily Glass Skin Veil Mist $29

First off, the bottle is very nice. It’s a heavy frosted glass bottle. I wouldn’t travel with it, but it looks nice siting out in my beauty area.

“…calms, refreshes, and hydrates for a radiant lasting glow on bare skin or with makeup. Achieve poreless, luminous, and translucent looking skin with this luxurious mist that features a soothing, antioxidant packed cucumber water base. Instantly deliveres a glass skin finish with hydrating, soothing, and glow getting ingredients. Results build over time to help skin look and feel hydrated, radiant, plump, and bouncy from within.”

On first impression I think this most did good things for my make up. My skin look very glowy. I’m excited to see what it does on bare skin!

Nudeskin by Nudestix Lemon aid Detox and Glow Micro Peel $34

I have not tried this chemical peel yet. It is supposed to be clarifying and detox pores of excess oil, dirt, and pollution while visibly rejuvenating skin tone and texture. This sound like it’s going to be really clarifying and brightening. I have high hopes. I am going to have to give this peel and try and update y’all later!

Riddle Oil Original Roll on $50

The scent of this roll on is AMAZING! I am absolutely in love! It also lasts on the skin a nice long time.

“…amber and musk. This oil naturally creates a signature scent that is unique to you. “

I think this is going to be my new everyday scent.

Trèstique Eye Duo Good Vibes Mascara and Eye Pencil $44

This is a mascara I have gotten before but didn’t try. My mom loves it, so I’m glad I got to try it for myself. It really gave my lashes fantastic length. However, I do not like the little lash curler contraption.

The eyeliner has great staying power. It lasted basically all day in my water line and tight line.

Full face done with products.

I am so happy with this box! It’s an incredible value that came packed full of fantastic products. I am so glad I resubscribed!

An Almost Full Face of Honest Beauty

My classes got cancelled today so I decided to do a full face of Honest Beauty! Well, an almost full face.

Everything Primer Matte $22.99

I started with the Honest Beauty Everything Primer in Matte. I use this primer all the time. It’s a lotiony texture and leaves my skin feeling hydrated, but not looking greasy.

The Everything Cream Foundation in Snow $21.99

This is a foundation I have raved about before and still love it. It can be used with out a concealer because it builds up so easily without looking cakey.

Snow is the perfect match for my light skin and I will continue to use and love it.

Get it Together Eyeshadow Palette $22.99

I have used this palette a few times and it isn’t the best I’ve ever used, but it also isn’t the worst.

None of the shades are particularly creamy and the pigmentation is okay. They do look very pretty on the eyes. I used the first three shades and the cream shade to do more of a romantic look today

Dusk Reflection Illuminizing Glow Powder $19.99

Dusk Reflection is the darker shade and I use it as bronzer. I love this stuff. I use it all the time. It sinks into the skin so well and doesn’t look like too much.

Midnight Reflection Illuminizing Glow Powder $19.99

This is the lighter shade. It’s a great highlight! Not over the top, not to shimmery. It just looks like the light is hitting your face perfectly.

Cremé Cheek Blush in Rose Pink $12.99

I use this blush all the time. It sinks nicely into the skin and I love that it makes me look slightly sunburnt even though I never go outside.

It is a beautiful rosey color and works well on my skin tone.

Lip Crayon in Sheer Rose $12.99

I tend to reach for this lip crayon on no makeup days. It’s comfortable and gives your lips and really nice kiss of color!

I really love how this look turned out! I highly recommend checking out everything! Maybe not the eyeshadow palette, but it does create pretty looks.

What’s your favorite Honest Beauty product?

3-in-1 Review | W3ll People

I have a few clean beauty items I am loving that I really wanted to share with you all, and they are all from W3ll People!

This is a more accessible clean beauty brand, in my opinion, sense it can be purchased at most Targets.

Let’s get into some reviews!

W3ll People High Vibrations Cheek Trio $19.99

To kick us off we have the High Vibrations 3 piece cheek palette cream. Contained is a cream highlighter and two cream blushes.

The creams skin easily into the skin and blend with no problems. I find that they are rather long wearing, even in the heat! If you are just getting into cream products, I think this would be a lovely one to start out with.

I used the middle blush shade and the highlight today. As you can see, the blush gives a luminous rosy look to the skin and the highlight really adds to that glow.

W3ll People Nudist 1 Palette $19.99

The nudist palette is more taupe toned, and reminds me a lot of the naked one palette. You have all the neutrals you need to create an easy every day look, as well as that darker brown to really spice things up.

I find that the shades are easy to blend. There is a bit of kick back so be aware of that. I don’t find that the shades fade through out the day. I have been reaching for this palette constantly. I really enjoy using the glittery brown shade all over my lid, then blended into the crease.

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara Mini $9.99

I have tried this mascara a few times now and I love it! It gives my lashes great length, and there is no smudging or flaking through out the day.

Over all, I highly recommend all of the products mentioned. W3ll People is a brand I have been obsessed with lately, and I can’t wait to try out more from them.

What is your favorite W3ll People Product? Comment below!
