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!

BoxyCharm Premium March 2022 Un-Boxing

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.

Keys Soulcare Skin Transformation Cream Fragrance Free W/ Bakuchiol $30

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.

Bronzer Declutter | I Tried Documenting This.

I have a lot of bronzer. No, I didn’t count them, I didn’t want to be confronted with that number. But, I am running out of room for bronzer, so I figured it was time to get rid of a few I don’t use. Compared to how many bronzers I own, I barely got rid of any.

As you can see, at this point I’m my decluttering journey, I only got rid of five bronzers. All of these bronzers I am getting rid of because I never reach for them. All decluttered products will be passed onto someone who will hopefully use them.

Covergirl Cheekers Cinnamon Toast

I’m pretty positive this is actually a blush. When it was with my blush it looked more like a bronzer to me. Then I never used it as a bronzer. I did contemplate using it as an eyeshadow, but I have enough brown eyeshadow this just needs to go.

ColourPop Sculpt Stix “Dove”

I bought this forever ago and only used it a handful of times. It is so so old. I think I should probably just toss this one.

The Balm Auto-Balm Grl Power Cheeks On The Go “Bleeker”

Looking at this now I see that it is actually definitely a blush. However I have so many blushes that I also need to declutter so I am just going to pass this along.

Kylie Pressed Bronzing Powder “Khaki”

I never use any of my Kylie products anymore. I just don’t support the brand so it’s time for this to go.

Love Craft Beauty Bronzer Trio

I got this is a subscription box ages ago and I don’t think I’ve ever actually used it. It’s time to stop taking up space. Goood bye.

What are your favorite bronzers? Leave a comment!

I Got The Ipsy Cosmic Glow Mystery Bag

The Ipsy mystery Glam Bags are $14. The mystery Glam Bag Plus is around $30. The Cosmic Glow Mystery Glam Bag is $14.

The Crème Shop Rose Water & B 12 Complex Infused Essence Masks

I am always up for trying a new sheet masks. I think I am going to give the rose water one a go this evening. The packaging on both is also super cute.

Seraphine Botanicals Pink Guava + Primer Oil Free Illuminating Primer

I have been getting into more illuminating primers, so this will be a fun one to try. I will have to do a future post on it.

Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub

This is a ruby crystal microdermabrasion Exfoliator. That sounds a little scary. I am definitely going to have to toss this into my routine once I finish my physical exfoliator.

KVD Cake Pencil “Trooper Black 01”

I have tried this pencil before and I really enjoyed it. It stayed in place and lasted all day. I do wish I would have gotten a brown shade, but I can use black as well.

Shades By Shan “Irma”

This feels and swatches like a pretty basic eye shadow. I’m sure I can use it as an all over lid shade or possibly an inner corner highlight.

That was another fun mystery bag! I like that a KVD product was included as well as an illuminating primer that is a pretty decent size. It contained a good balances of makeup and skincare.

I got the October 2021 Mystery Ipsy Glam Bag

I mainly decided to get this because I really really like the bag. So every thing else is pretty much a bonus for me. The mystery glam bags retail for $14

Mini Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Dqy Moisture SPF 30

I have the full size of this product but I have yet to use it. I will probably try this mini size first to see if I like it. And if I don’t I can always pass the larger size onto someone else.

Love craft Beauty Number 2 Brush

The bristles are soft and it seems pretty sturdy. I’ll definitely use it for blush or bronzer

This Works Morning Expert Hyaluronic Serum

I have been getting a lot of Hyaluronic acid stuff lately. This is another little mini to add to my turn and burn project pan.

UOMA Level Up Mascara Mini

I love getting mini mascaras. I can actually use it up before the three month shelf life passes.

The bristles are kind of spread out and in a weird pattern around the wand. I am interested to see how this work.

Basic Beauty Eyeshadow Quad “Hot Cocoa Bomb”

This is a cute little quad and the shadows seem to be of pretty decent quality.

It was really buttery and smooth with the figure swatches and I am interested to see how they work with a brush. I am going to add this to my collection of mini palettes I keep on my vanity.

Sometimes I really enjoy getting this mystery bags. Sometimes they suck though. This was luckily not one of this times! I would be interested to know what products you got in this bag when it originally came out or if you have ordered the mystery bag as well!

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.

Ipsy February 2022

Ipsy glam bag is $11 a month and contains 5 sample (sometimes full) sized beauty products and tools.

Complex Culture Easy Crease Definer Brush

I LOVE Complex Culture brushes! I have quite a few for face makeup, but this is my first one for the eyes. I am excited to see how well it performs.

Bella Pierre Banana Powder

I have the pressed version of this powder and I use it so much I have pan in it! I have never used a loose banana powder, so I am curious to see how using it ends up.

Bobby Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

This mascara has a pretty average wand. I think it will work well for my lower lashes. I am interested in seeing how it performs over all.

Zion Health Orange Blossom Hydrating Lip Balm

This balm smells great and feels even better on the lips. I am going to put this balm in my desk at work so I can make sure it gets the use it deserves.

Shaina B Miami Duo “MIA Mauve and Ice Palace”

This is a perfect little duo for me. It’s a nice basic crease shade and a highlight shade.

I am going to get so much use out of this! I can see myself reaching for it daily.

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 February 2022

The BoxyCharm base box is around $28 and contains five full sized (sometimes deluxe sample sized) beauty products.

Let’s just jump into my box!

Clara’s New York Stimulating Retinol Facial Serum $24.99

“A 96% blend of retinol and vitamin E oils intensely stimulates and moisturizes quenched skin.” I used up my Sunday Riley A+ retinol serum last month. I am not paying full price for that and I haven’t looked for a replacement. I am happy to have this and I hope it does something nice for my less than nice skin.

Saturday Skin YUZU Vitamin C Bright Eye Cream $32

I have accumulated quite the collection of eye creams. I am currently almost done with my Murad eye cream and I think I want to try this one next.

“This eye cream will improve moisture retention, hydrate, and blur the appearance of fine lines.”

This sounds like just what I need. The past month has been a JOKE it’s been so horrible. My under eyes look like I’ve took a stroll through hell. Hopefully this eye cream can help make it look like I’ve got my life together. (I do not).

Bali Balm Pineapple Lip Scrub $23

BOXYCHARM STOP SENDING ME PINEAPPLE LIP SCRUBS. IM ALLERGIC TO PINEAPPLE.

I guess my friends are going to get to fight over another pineapple lip scrub. Nice.

OPV Beauty Loose Setting Powder $22

For some reason I’ve been super into trying out setting powders lately. Hopefully this one is a winner.

Alleyoop Multi-tasker 4-in-1 Makeup Brush $28

This is neat. I like this. It’s going into my on the go makeup bag I keep in my backpack. I think it’s going to come in handy.

Here it is all put together. I probably won’t ever use the sponge end, but who knows.

That is it for my BoxyCharm base box. It’s a bit of a boring box. But I think I’ll get use out of everything but the lip scrub.

Ipsy January 2022

The Ipsy Glam Bag is around $11 a month and you get 5-6 deluxe sample sized makeup and beauty products.

Elaina Badro Blending Brush

The brush is very soft and doesn’t shed. It’s a nice addicting to my collection of too many eyeshadow bruhes.

Rose + Quartz Hair Mask

This seems like it will be a really good hair mask. It’s vegan, gluten free, and cruelty free. I am excited to give it a try once I finish my current hair mask.

IBY Sunkissed Glow Highlighter “Maldives”

This is a pretty highlighter. I don’t mind that it’s travel sized because highlighters are hard to get through. Maldives is a great color for me and I think I’ll get a lot of use out of it.

Tarte Ultra Creamy Shape Tape Concealer “Light Sand”

This is the item I picked out. I’m very excited to try it. It’s something I have wanted to give a try for a while now, this travel size will be perfect.

Purlisse Ageless Glow Serum BB Cream “light”

I am always up to trying a new BB cream. I have another Bb Cream from Purlisse that I really like, so I have high hopes for ageless glow.
