Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2022

I forgot I was subscribed to this! So it was a nice little surprise today. It’s $5 a season and you get a random assortment of beauty and makeup samples. Sometimes you’ll even get a full sized product! I really want to sub to the cheap beauty boxes from other stores, lately I have an obsession with samples and deluxe sample sized products. Probably because I am doing a turn and burn project pan. Which is just making a point to use up samples, deluxe samples, and products that are almost empty.

Sample Packets

I’m not going to go into any detail with these. Here is just an assortment of one use packets. The L’Oréal Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Liquid IV flavor packet, and Not Your Mother’s Smooth Moves Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner.

Daily Concepts Exfoliating Dual Texture Scrubber

I am a bit iffy about this. It just makes me a bit nervous to use wipe something so textured all around my face. I am afraid of tears. I might try this, but I also might just give it to a friend to try.

Cera Ve Daily Moisturizing Lotion

I have heard really good things about this lotion so I am interested in trying it out. I think it will work really nicely on my legs which are much more sensitive than the rest of my body. This will be a nice way to see if I like it or not.

Chap Stick Total Hydration With Hemp Seed Oil

I am always happy to try a new lip balm. This one feels really hydrating on the lips and has a nice fresh scent. Into my purse it goes!

Lottie London Slay All Day Liquid Lipstick “Fleek”

I have not been big into liquid lips lately like I use to be. I just find them to be too drying on my lips and I don’t like how they just flake off. However, I do really like the shade of this one so I may make an exception.

It’s a brown-red shade. I just really enjoy it and think it will really complement some looks. I don’t think it screams spring by any means, but who cares. It’s not like I’m into bright springy colors.

What did you think of this Walmart beauty box? Not a bad little assortment for $5! Comment your thoughts below! What is your favorite product or brand from the drugstore?

AIA Beauty Bundle April 2022

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!

America Influencer Beauty Bundle February 2022

This is a new to me box and I am pretty excited about it! It is $35 and it seems to include multiple products from one brand each month.

This month is Jason Wu. I have wanted to try this newer drugstore brand since I saw it featured in some YouTube videos. This box is a great way to try out a good assortment of products.

Jason Wu Magic Matte Oil $16

This product I am really looking forward to trying. I have pretty oily skin and I am interested to see how much of a difference this oil makes on my skin. Apparently it is supposed to be oily to matte instantly. It can be worn alone or as a primer. I’ll probably use it in both ways.

Jason Wu Saved By The Patch $12

I have some acne patches from another brand that I have been using and liking. I am glad to have more and hope they work just as well as the others.

Jason Wu The Bush $14

This is a vegan formula brow soap. I have been toying with the idea of giving soap brows a try and I guess this is my sign to take the plunge.

Jason Wu Stay In Line “Parisian Chic” and “Royal” $10

The Stay in Line lipliners are incredibly creamy pencil liners. The shades are pretty nice go to shades for me and I can see myself just wearing these all over the lips.

Jason Wu Flora 9 “Matte Agave” $15

I love the look of this little palette. I do t have a matte palette that is set up in quite the same way. The shadows are buttery and pigmented and seem like they will blend nicely. I will probably be doing a dedicated post for this palette (and many of the other products featured here) so keep an eye out for that!

Jason Wu Hot Fluff “Jelly Roll” and “Éclair” $12

These are both creamy matte lipsticks. They remind me a lot of the Milani Fetish Matte lipsticks formula wise. I will probably wear the more almost terracotta shade more than the bolder berry, but if I’m going to wear a berry now it will probably be this one.

As far as my first American Influencer Beauty Bundle goes this one was great to start off with! I got some great products from a brand I had really wanted to try. I am excited to see what the coming months bring.

BoxyCharm Premium February 2022

Another BoxyCharm post! Premium is in the $35 range. I am really tempted to resubscribe to BoxyCharm Luxe.

Aceology Rose Quartz Gua Sha Facial Massager $45

I’m going to be honest. I’m never going to use this. I am going to give it to my mom. It is pretty though

Moon Lit Makeup Primed For The Night $18

I haven’t tried a new eye primer in ages. I’m excited to give this one a go.

UOMA Beauty Badass MF Lip Liner “Angelou” $16

This is a nice creamy nudey brown lip liner. It’s going to go great with all of my favorite lip colors.

Christophe Robbins Instant Volume Mist With Rose Water $39

This is a volumizing mist for thin fine hair. And it smells like rose. I am hoping it works well on my hair with out making it look greasy.

Vike Beauty Makeup Melt $24

So. This is a spray. You spray it on over makeup, massage it in, and then rinse it off to remove your makeup. This is going to be neat to try. Here’s to hoping it works well.

Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde Eyeshadow Palette $67

I have been toying with the idea of buying this palette since it came out. I’m super excited that I received it in BoxyCharm! I can’t wait to use it.

The formula is so nice!

BoxyCharm Base Box January 2022

I apologize for taking so long to get this post up. A lot of stuff has been going on in my personal life that has me extremely depressed. Doing anything right now is difficult and I just haven’t had the energy to write anything. I am trying to pull myself out of this and I’m hoping messing with some makeup will help to do so.

Farmacy Filling Good Hyaluronic Acid Plumping Serum $44

I think Farmacy is my favorite skincare brand so I am always happy to try something new from them. I have never tried a Hyaluronic Acid serum so I am interested to see what this does. I did get a Hyaluronic Acid serum from Studio Makeup in a box last month, but I have yet to try it. Honestly my skincare has been lacking with everything going on.

Aesthetica Cream Contour Kit $40

I have some brushes from this brand that I really like, so I am interested to see how well the cream contour performs. I’m not much for contouring, but I can definitely give it a try.

Earth Harbor Naturals Nymph Nectar Superfruit Radiance Balm $38

I am really interested in this brand. I have heard a ton of good things about it, but I have never tried it myself. This balm is meant to make your skin look bouncy and dewy. I am excited to see how well it works.

Haus Laboratories Glam Attack Liquid Shimmer Powder “Chained Ballerina “ $20

First off, I’m never going to use this. It’s a glittery black liquid/cream shadow. I wish I had gotten a different color because I have heard good things about this product. I am going to be passing this along to someone else.

Dragun Beauty Lip Job Liner and Sharpener “2.0cc” $18

All I know about this brand is that it was founded by a YouTuber who I have never watched. I believe the color corrector from this brand was a big thing for a while. The liner is a good nude color I’m sure I’ll get plenty of use out of and the sharpener seems to be great quality and will probably be replacing my old one that’s in pretty poor condition.

That’s it for my box! I’m pretty happy with everything omitting the cream shadow. I am sorry if this post feels a little rushed through and I’m sorry nothing is swatched. My boyfriend of close to two years left me and I am still trying to figure out how to be without him.

Thank you for reading and understanding 🌻🌻

BoxyCharm Premium January 2022

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!

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.

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?

BoxyCharm | August 2020

BoxyCharm is $25 a month. It contains 5 sample – full-sized beauty products.

Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer $20

I think I have tried this primer before and I liked it from what I can remember. An eye primer is useful, so there’s that.

MudMasky Blue Light Protection Mask $54

This is neat. This is a mask you leave on all day to protect you from the blue light that comes from electronics. I am in front of my lap top pretty much all day for classes, so this will be lovely.

Clarins Velvet Lip Perfector “Velvet Nude 01” $26

I have heard some pretty good things about this product, and the shade is pretty. However, I am unsure if Clarins is CF, so I will have to do abit of research before I use it.

Butter London Teddy Boy Eyeshadow Palette $28

This is a small cool toned eye palette. I usually don’t lean towards cool tones, but it will be nice to actually have a palette with that option.

Too Faced Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer “Pearl” $29

I selected this shade, and it was too dark for me. Which is sad, because it is one of my favorite concealers. I actually have the correct shade in right now! This shade will match my mom, so I hope she likes it!

I am pretty happy with this box. I am sad that I am so bad at shade matching though. I thought the concealer would be light enough. Oh well! My box came to a total of $157.
