BoxyLuxe Un-Boxing | September 2019

Hey guys!

Today I bring you a BoxyLuxe un-boxing! BoxyLuxe is $49 every quarter and contains 7-8 full sized beauty products.

This months theme is “All Access” and it appears that I got version 8.

Violet Voss Essentials Eyeshadow Palette $29

If you have been following my blog for a while, you would know that I love Violet Voss shadows. In fact, they have one of my favorite shadow formulas.

I really enjoy the color story of these palette. For just a 10 pan palette, I find it very inspiring.

The shadows are pigmented and very easy to blend. This palette is so easy to create beautiful looks with.

Dr. Brandt Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask $52

This is the only product from the box I will not be using. When I have used sleeping masks in the past, the next day my skin has been extremely broken out. I am a little wary of using them, and do not want to risk it. I do have a family member who will really enjoy this product, so I will be passing it on to her.

Hank & Henry Blickity Black Eye Liner $20

This is the first Hank and Henry product I have tried, and I am happy to finally have the chance.

This liner has a brush tip applicator and it very pigmented. It reminds me a lot of the Kat Von D tattoo liner upon application. After trying the liner some I really enjoy it. I think it may be my new favorite!

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick “Angelo” $22

Stila’s liquid lipstick formula is beautiful. It dries down quickly and is very comfortable to wear. I highly recommend giving the Stay All Day Liquid lipsticks a try if you have not already!

Angelo is a little peachy nude. I think it is very complimentary of my skin tone.

Tarte Park Avenue Princess Palette $45

I have wanted this palette since it came out, but never picked it up. I am super excited to finally own it! The shades are beautiful, and the palette smells like chocolate. The palette is very sturdy with a great mirror, perfect for travel!

Glow Recipe Pineapple C-Bright Serum $49

This is another product that I have had my eye on. The packaging is cute and it smells like dole canned pineapples. The scent does dissipate rather quickly. The serum sunk in to the skin quickly, and actually worked lovely as a primer.

Moda 8 Pc Brush Kit $69.99

In this brush kit you get close to a full face of brushes. They are well made, very soft, and I have yet to notice any shedding with use. However, there is no way I would pay $69.99 for these brushes. That price seems very steep for what is more of a drugstore brush line.

IGK Mistress Hydrating Balm $29

I am all about leave in conditioner. I have thinker frizzy hair, and boy does it need hydration. I am really enjoying this Balm so far. It seems to be helping maintain smoothness in my hair through out the day, and the scent reminds me of a salon.

Above is a look done with all of the products included in this seasons box. Over all I really love everything and I am super happy with the version that I received.

For $49 I got $315.99 worth of product! Needless to say, I highly recommend giving BoxyLuxe a go.

Have you tried BoxyLuxe? What was your favorite item that you received?

Petit Vour Unboxing | August 2019

Hello everyone!

Tonight, we have an unboxing that I have not done in a while, the Petit Vour clean, vegan, and cruelty free beauty box!

After reading some other PV unboxings, I realized how much I missed this box. I just had to resubscribe!

What was in my first box in over a year?

Harvest Natural Beauty Lengthening Mascara $18

This mascara is meant to be ideal for sensitive eyes. It also claims to be smudge proof and water resistant. My mascara always smudges under my lower lash line, I am forever on the search for the perfect smudge proof mascara.

Honua Hawaiian Skincare Pa’kai Cleansing Cream $12

Made with Hawaiian salt, hibiscus, and seaweed. This cleansing cream is meant to cleanse, repair and renew for soft hydrated skin.

Those claims sound great to me, and I like the simple ingredients.

Derma E Essential Radiance Toner $2.50

This is an alcohol free, exfoliating toner with glycolic acid.

I really enjoy Derma E skincare. I have heard great things about the Radiance toner and I am excited to try it for myself.

Juice Beauty Blemish Clearing Serum $15

This serum contains, willow bark, salicylic acid, and organic fruit acids.

My pores have been pretty congested lately, so I have been getting some break outs. I will be testing this product out ASAP!

Petit Histoire Envie Desoir $5

This last product in the box this month is a fragrance sample.

This is a 100% natural fragrance of “glistening violet and rose dancing in soft rain.”

The fragrance is very floral, yet fresh at the same time. I actually really enjoy it.

Overall thoughts?

I am very happy with my first box back. I will get use out of every item! I love being confident that all of the products are cruelty free, vegan, and clean beauty! The products are also samples of some pretty pricey items in each box. It makes it all the more fun to try!

What products in this box would you like to see more about?

Ipsy Glam Bag | August 2019

Welcome back!

Today we are un-bagging the $10 Ipsy Glam Bag!

The bag this month is really cute. The shade I got is hunter green. The zipper is good and the inside is hot pink! It seems really nicely made, and I love the studded texture.

Now, for the exciting part. The items in the bag!

Thrive Cosmetics liquid lash extensions Mascara “Brynn”

I have been wanting to try the Thrive mascara, thanks to a few YouTubers. I usually enjoy tubing mascara, but I am glad I get to try a sample before purchasing the full size. It is also neat to see a brand like Thrive in Ipsy!

Comelyco Blueberry And Peach Mask Sheet

I love sheet masks, so I will never be unhappy with getting them in Ipsy. I have also been throwing sheet masks in as extras in my Mercari orders.

It Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer

This is a little sample that is mostly empty. It is like the free samples Ulta throws into orders. I have a ton of skin care, so I will probably pass this sample along to someone else.

Luxie Beauty Periwinkle Blending Brush 237

I love Luxie brushes, so I am happy with this item! It is soft and well made, per Luxies usual quality.

Suva Beauty Eyeshadow “Turmeric”

The Suva Beauty Formula is really nice. It is buttery and pigment. Super easy to work with!

The shade is a nice, basic gold.

over all thoughts?

It is not the best Ipsy I have gotten, but it is not terrible.

That was in your Ipsy bag?

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus | August 2019

Hello guys!

It’s Sunday, it’s gloomy, and I am doing a face mask (Lush Mask of Magnaminty). Is there a better time to do an unboxing?

I don’t think so!

This time we have Glam Bag Plus. It is around $22 a month, and is the upgrade of the basic Ipsy bag. You get 5-6 items and they are all full sized.

This months theme is “Bare Yourself”.

Let’s dig into these goodies!

Tarte Dream Big Palette $30

This palette is pretty and perfect for travel thanks to the mirror. I would have liked another matte that I could use as a transition shade. I can just used what ever Bronzer I am using as a transition though.

FARAH Show Me Magic Eye Brush Set $50

Some more FARAH brushes from a subscription service. I can’t be mad though. I love getting brushes and the handles of this set is cute.

The bristles feel soft, and seem to be secure.

Ahava Hydration Cream Mask $33

This is going to be fantastic is the cold months, that are quickly approaching. This mask can also be used as a night mask! You massage it in to your skin until it is absorbed and then wash it off in the morning. Or 5 minutes later if you are not using it as an over night mask.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer in light $39.50

I have never tried any of the face products from it Cosmetics, so I am pretty excited about this one.

The concept of a full coverage moisturizer is a little strange, so expect a review in the near future!

Suva Beauty Liquid Chrome Illuminating Drops “Trust Fund” $26

This illuminator is so pretty! I really hope that it will work with my skin tone. It should be okay as long as I use a small amount.

Add ons!

I have said it a million times, and I will never stop saying it…. I love Ipsy’s add on program! You can get some pretty cool stuff at some awesome prices.

Chique Blush Brush $6 or $3 I can’t remember.

My first add on was a blush brush. It feels pretty cheap, but the bristles are soft. It’ll do its job and that’s what matters to me.

The Balm in the Balm of your Hand V. 2 $12

I am really excited about this palette! I have been wanting to try more of the face powders from the Balm, now I have 4 as well as some shadows! A great steal at $12.

Suva Single Shadow “Coriander” $6 or $3. Again, I can’t remember.

I picked up this shade because I thought it would make a great inner corner and brow bone highlighter. I also really love the Suva formula, so that was me justifying buying another eye shadow.

Point Redemption

Ipsy also has a nice point system. You save up points and can get free products and tools. Unfortunately, they do expire.

Firma 102 Brush

I like redeeming for beauty tools. This brush is made very well and is very soft. I can think of a few uses for it, which is awesome.

Thoughts?

I am so happy with my box this month! I love everything! More than worth the monthly cost in my opinion.

What was in your GBP?

BoxyCharm | August 2019

Welcome back to another Unboxing!

BC is around $22 a month. You receive 5 or more beauty products, they are usually full sized, but every now and then you get a deluxe sample size.

This months Box theme is Totally. I am not sure how this is a theme, but every thing is very pink.

I want to start off the Unboxing by saying social media spoiled this months box for me. I also did not get the variation I wanted, I really was hoping I would get the two Ace Beauté eyeshadow singles.

However, I did still get a pretty good box.

Becca Hydra Mist and Refresh Powder $39

I have been wanting to try this powder for a while now. Its concept is very interesting to me.

For me, the box has already been paid for, so everything else is essentially a bonus item! Which is always an awesome start to an Unboxing.

Wander Glow Ahead Illuminating Oil $42

Wander is a brand I actually really enjoy!

Glow ahead can be used alone or as a primer. It is meant to give your face a “bouncy youthful glow”. I can predict that I will be using this oil a lot come the dry winter and fall months.

Tarte Big Ego Mascara $23

The Big Ego wand looks suspiciously like the Better Than Sex wand.

I have never been disappointed by a Tarte Mascara, so I have high hopes for this hot pink package.

Pür Pink Glitter Mask 2oz. $26

This mask seems to be part of Pürs new collection with Barbie.

I don’t like glitter in my skincare, but I am willing do give it a try, just because the mask it self is hot pink. That’s a terrible reason, but whatever I am sticking to it!

Lashaholics Instagram False Lashes $14.99

I am not much of a false lash person, but I actually like how this pair looks. They aren’t too dramatic, but still have a glittery shape to them.

The box they come in is also super cute.

Over all thoughts?

It isn’t the best BC that I have gotten, but it isn’t the worst either. While I am disappointed I didn’t not get the shadows, I can by them off someone on Mercari.

I am quite happy with what I got. I would have spent $22 on the powder alone, so I am pretty satisfied! I can wear the falsies on one of my few and far between nights out on the town ( I live less than an hour from St. Louis). The mask will be fun for a girls night, and I love tarte mascaras!

Kyut Beauty Box | July 2019

I have a new un-boxing for this month!

The Kyut beauty box is a cruelty free and vegan beauty box is $24.90 monthly. You can also purchase a one time mystery box for $19.00. I am very interested in this whole mystery box thing!

I am very excited about this box, so let’s tear right into it.

Zion Health Beauty Balm $29.99

Our first product is an anti-aging sunscreen with SPF 30. This product is also meant to enhance and brighten your skin tone. This sunscreen is paraben, gluten, aluminum, and sulfate free. SPF is very important, so I am very happy with this product.

Phase Zero Makeup Coconut Liquid Eyeshadow “Lucky Penny” $22.50

I have started getting in to liquid/cream eyeshadow, which is really strange for me! Lucky Penny is a pretty shade, it would look great all over the lid.

Zabana Essentials Sea Salt Wavy Hair Shimmer Spray $15.95

This shimmer spray looks so cute and fun! I will definitely use it for trips this summer.

Root Pretty Pretty Balm “Campbell” $10

I have heard amazing things about the brand Root Pretty, and I have been dying to try some of their products. I suppose a tinted balm is a good place to start. The shade will give a beautiful bitten look to my lips!

Bonus Item: Beach Anklet By Kyut Box

I love ankle bracelets! Unfortunately, I have bad reactions to nickel, so hopefully I am able to wear this anklet. I love how simple and dainty it is.

Over all thoughts?

I love this months Box! Not one dud, and I can feel safe knowing that no animal testing is involved with the products. I can’t wait to see what the next box brings!

What is your favorite Cruelty Free subscription box?

Ipsy Un-Bagging | July 2019

It’s Sunday night, we all have work tomorrow. So I figured it would be nice to throw up a simple un-bagging while I do a face mask!

I am currently using the Yes to Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Peel off mask. Mainly for my T zone where I have been having some breakouts.

I highly recommend this mask, and you can always get Yes to products on sale at Ulta!

Now, for the reason you are reading this, my July Ipsy bag!

The bag itself.

I think this months Bag is so cute and fun. Perfect for July! I may make this the makeup bag that I keep in my purse.

But, the contents of the bag is the most exciting part!

Laritzy Cosmetics Dew Pot In Utopia

I really enjoy all the products I have gotten from Laritzy in the past, but I am a little hesitant about this one.

I am not sure it will work for my skin tone. However, I am willing to give it a try as a highlight. But, I will probably end up using it as a Cream shadow. It looks like a really pretty kid shade.

Ciaté London Watermelon Burst Hydrating Primer

I have been very curious about this primer. The dissolving black beads, meant to look like seeds, is an interesting concept to me.

I do plan to review this product, since it does have me so intrigued.

FEEL Mindful Pali Santo Soothing Mask

I really enjoy soothing masks in the summer time. My skin tends to break out and develop rashes much easier in the summer. However, the same also occurs in the winter when the air is dry. This Is a nice sized deluxe sample, I am sure I will get a use or two out of it!

Pacifica Bronzer and Blush Duo Bronzed Rose

Apparently this duo was made just for Ipsy, which is neat! I have another Pacifica Blush and bronzer duo that I really enjoy. It actually lives in my makeup collection at my boyfriends house.

The blush is a pretty shimmery rose, with a warm matte bronzer. I have to say, Pacifica makes amazing products!

TheBalm Single Shadow in The Run Down

I like getting these little samples of the balm shadows in my Ipsy. They are always great quality, and since the packaging is so cute I do tend to reach for them.

This is a plumy grey that can be used as a shadow or liner, which is handy when traveling. The formula is very buttery and I have tried it on my eyes. It is easy to blend and made for a beautiful smoky eye.

The Add Ons

This month I only did two ads ons.

Billion Dollar Brows Brow Brush $3-6 as an add on, I can’t remember.

My Anastasia Brow Brush is really beat up, so I was in need of a new brush. I couldn’t pass up the price on this one. I have tried other brushes from this brand that are great quality. The brush is a bit more thick than I prefer, but I am sure I can make it work.

It Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara $12 as an add on.

If you saw my Glam Bag Plus In-boxing, then you know that I also got this mascara in the box.

This is my holy grail mascara, I just could not pass it up at such a great price! This one is now my back up, as I have already cracked open the one from my GBP.

Over all thoughts

I am super happy with my bag this month!

I got some handy products and one that I have been curious about! The only dud may be the dew Pot, but who knows I may end up loving it!
