The American Influencer Beauty Bundle retails for $38 a month and contains an assortment of products from a different beauty brand each month.
This months featured brand is NudeStix!
Citrus-C Mask and Daily Moisturizer $38
This moisturizer is meant to be a hydrating moisturizer, sleeping mask, and makeup primer all in one. I am interested to see how it would work as a primer for me, but I also want to just use it as a moisturizer. It is supposed to improve elasticity and tone, and renew skin texture for soft, smooth, hydrated and glowing skin.
Lash Lengthening Mascara $28
Now, I’ve said this before, but I prefer more voluminizing mascaras. I am going to give this one a try but my hopes aren’t too high. The formula seems pretty wet and the wand is rather basic.
Nudies Bronze In Sun kissed $34
I have been wanting to try some of the NudeStixs blushes and bronzers, so I am excited to give this product a try. It’s a nice shade and it blends out easily. I prefer more cream products during the warmer months, so this arrived at a good time.
Magnetic Matte Lip in Boho $26
I love this shade! I think I am going to get a lot of use out of it. In fact, it is already in my everyday makeup drawer.
Magnetic Eye Color in Dew WAP $26
I love shadow sticks! I have this product in a few other shades and I really enjoy it. I’m happy to have another. This shade would also work great as a highlight. I am going to be reaching for it a lot to highlight my inner corner. That’s for sure.
This months box was great! NudeStixs is a brand I’m really interested in, so it’ll be fun to try more products. What is your favorite NudeStixs product? Which product are you most interested in? Comment below!
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!
BoxyCharm Premium retails for $38 a month and comes with five-six full sized makeup and beauty products.
Let’s dig into this box! I’ve got a busy day today, but I still wanted to get this post up sense it’s been a few days since my last post.
Somme Institute Transport Exfoliating Glycolic Acid Pads $65
This is a new brand to me. “Powered by MDT5, features saturated soft cotton pads designed to help improve skin tone, texture, and clarity, and an 8% buffered AHA to gently exfoliate dead cells on skin’s surface.”
Sounds good, but we will see how it goes.
Grace & Stella Everything Is Better In Pink Collagen Boosting Eye Masks $24.00
I feel like I got another box of eye masks in BoxyCharm not all that long ago. I will give them a try and see if they help my under eyes at all, but I have yet to find an eye mask that I like.
I have another box full of Keys products and I am excited to give them all a try. I have tried the Skin Transformation Cream and it feels so nice on the skin. It sinks in easy and makes it super soft.
Ciatè London Dewy Skin Vitamin C Glass Glow Primer $32
This will be my first time trying a primer that makes glass skin claims. To be honest, I don’t even know what glass skin is. But, I will give to primer a go and see how it affects the look and wear of my makeup.
Āthr Beauty The Big Bang Mascara $28
“The ultimate lash maximizing, black Diamond infused mascara that truly does it all for out of this world length, volume, curl, and definition.”
We will see about all those claims. The brush has short natural bristles and doesn’t look like it will add much volume, maybe length though.
Honest Beauty Magic Beauty Balm Stick $14.99
“ A multitasking balm stick that soothes and softens dry skin, while also creating a luminizing glow. Made with a blend of fruits and botanicals. Works on all skin types.”
*** please ignore how rough my hand looks. I’m two spots Carl got me and the bruise is from getting an IV in the ER
The balm gives a really pretty almost lit from with in look and I’m definitely going to be using it as a highlighter.
That’s my box. It’s pretty skincare heavy I think, but I’m okay with that. I’ve been on a skincare kick lately.
What was in your box? What was your favorite item or the item you are most interested in? Comment below!
I got a lot of great stuff in my BoxyCharm Premium this month, let’s get into it!
Athr Beauty Desert Sunset palette $48
This palette has a beautiful color story. I cannot wait to give it a try.
The mattes swatch beautifully. The shimmers left a little to be desired, but we will have to see how they apply to the eyes.
Kosas Air Brow Tinted Volumizing Treatment Gel Soft Brown $22
This is a product I have wanted to try since it came out. I’m really excited to see it in my box. I think soft brown will be a great match for me.
Cover FX Custom Enhancer Palette $42
These are supposed to be their highlighter drops in pressed powder form. This is a neat concept, but blinding highlights are really for me. I am going to keep it long enough to give it a try, but I’ll probably end up passing this on to a friend.
LYS Beauty Secure Skin Gripping Primer Serum $20
I am all about gripping primers! I have a few from the drugstore. I am excited to use one that is sold In Sephora. I have to say, this is a great price for a makeup brand that’s in Sephora. I do have a bronzer from this brand that I really enjoy, so I have high hopes for this primer. I may just have to do a “test it out” post!
Juice Beauty Bamboo Pore Refining Mask $36
“Clear and hydrate your skin at the same time with this pore refining mask. Help protect against “maskne” with bamboo charcoal and kaolin clay to help detox, aspen bark to help smooth and hydrate, and exfoliating polyhydroxy acids for a softer, smoother complexion.”
That all sounds fantastic. I am a Covid Screener so I obviously have to wear a mask all day and work and the break outs are REAL. I am going to give this a try tonight and hope to see some improvement after a few uses.
Persona Cosmetics Lip Liner 90210 $14
This is a very pretty lip liner and the color is right up my alley. I think I will get a ton of use out of it.
My box was great! I’m really happy with everything, besides the highlighters, but I think I got my moneys worth!
I used this on damp hair and it was fantastic. It made my hair less frizzy and my natural waves very pretty. The smell is light and over all enjoyable. RP? Yes! But, I have a few more similar items to use first.
I received this item in PR. I enjoyed this as a day time moisturizer, but it takes to long to sink into the skin, causing my face to have a bit of a greasy feel. RP? No, I do my morning skincare then makeup. So, this just didn’t work for me.
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.
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.
