Notoriously Morbid Changeling Top Coat *Vanishing Cabinet Product Review*

vc1

If you read my first VC un-bagging, then you have already heard of this neat product.

Essentially it is a top coat for your lip stick that will make it look iridescent. The specific shade I got “Touch of Magic”, is a VC exclusive, which is cool!

Info from the site:

“Our Changeling Top Coat is hand-formulated and designed to set quickly, creating a shift of color that takes your lip color from ordinary to metallic or mix and match for a multi-chrome effect! We show the Changeling Top Coats paired here with our Mystic Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Rune.” “Siren” is also shown layered over our Mystic Matte in “Arcane.” These will somewhat mattify non-matte lipsticks, leaving the intense color-shifting hue. We’ve tried them with several types of lipsticks and have had varying degrees of success in mattifying them.

Due to popular demand, we have brought back the Changeling’s in the Duowand packaging. The Changeling Top Coats are packaged in a single wand with two 1.5ml ends with a doe foot applicator.

When using your top coat, you will notice some transference of the lip color to the applicator for the top coat. We recommend wiping the applicator to remove the color before placing it back inside the tube to preserve the purity of the top coat. 

*Some settling may occur due to the nature of the formula, so give your Changeling tube a shake before application. “

I also wanted to include the ingredients.

Isododecane, Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Beeswax, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E). May contain: Titanium Dioxide, Tin Oxide, Silica, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate.

You can get a duo of them for $10 on their site, which is here!

Swatches:

Here it is on its own and over the shade “lumiere” from colour pop.

I recommend allowing your lip product to dry all the way before applying the top coat. They recommend using it with matte lip sticks. I second that.

On the lips and Over all thoughts:

tc

Here it is applied over Wet n’ Wild’s velvet matte lip crayon in “hickory smoke”.

I absolutely 100% love using this to pop my lower lip and make it look bigger. I use to do this anyway with just gloss, but this looks so much better! I love the lavender shift and and how it transforms lip products into something completely different!

It is not sticky at all, in fact I never notice it is there after application unless I am looking at my lips. It is also pretty long wearing. No, it will not last as long as the lip stick, but it doesn’t disappear after 15 minuets of wear ass I was expecting it to.

For only $10, I think this is a great product to pick up in different shades, I mean it essential doubles your lip wear options!

I am really excited to try more from this brand.

Petit Vour Septemeber 2016 UN-Boxing

pvs

Alrighty guys, back to the subscription boxes!

Today we are unboxing my 2nd Petit Vour box! You can see my first one, here!

Petit Vour is $15 a month and contains 3-4 non-toxic and vegan luxury beauty products. It is guaranteed to have at least a $35 value! Not only that; but, when you shop on their sit you get 20% of what you spend back to use on their site, which is fantastic! Sign up here!

In The Box:

I am going to start with the product card. On the reverse side of the card is a beautiful illustration of crystals. I really enjoy that Petit Vour uses one side of the card for art, so that it can be reused as a home decor piece, rather than just tossed. I, for one, am going to be putting mine in a small gold picture frame and using it to decorate my living room!

Oh yeah, in case you were wondering, this months theme is, “What a gem!”

ODACITE Serum Concentrate $3 value (Fullsize $32-42):

I usually end up losing these little vials before I use them, but this one seems really cool.

The card says,” Beauty thrives on the concentration of actives. These precious little serums are so potent, 2-3 drops is all it takes to see visible results. Mix in 2-3 drops of the serum with your daily moisturizer, or use alone for a more intense treatment.”

I got the Bl+C serum, which is for pimples. This is great, I am having a pretty nasty break out right now, so I will get use out of this. I am excited to review it for you, and maybe end up picking up more from this line if I like this sample.

ADORN Mineral & Organic Hydrating Cream Foundation $4 value (Fullsize $50):

pvs2

I have tried a highlighter from this brand before and love it. I am pretty excited to try this foundation. In fact, this is the first “non-toxic” foundation I have ever tried besides Pacifica or Shea Moisture! I have high hopes for this, especially sense it is $50 fullsized.

The card reads..”Get full, flawless coverage with this smooth, long-lasting foundation. Especially perfect for those with sensitive skin. Tip: can also be used as an eyeshadow base!”

I think I am going to use this all over my face once, then use the remainder as an eye base. Then do a full review!

OSEA Ocean Cleanser $16 (Fullsize $44):

pvs3

Holy Jesus, I have been wanting to try Osea products so badly, and now I finally get to!

The card reads..”An OSEA classic! Ocean Cleanser is  rich in minerals, algae, dermal proteins, vitamins, and mineral salts with a delightful natural fragrance. This multi-tasking  hydrating formula effectively removes dirt and impurities, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and energized.”

I am so excited for this. I have extremely high hopes for this, hopefully it lives up for my expectations.By the way, the packaging is frosted glass and beautiful. Oh, and the scent is delightful!

MEOW MEOW TWEET Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream $14 value:

pvs4

Talk about great timing! I ran out of deodorant this morning. This was much needed. I have also been wanting to try more non toxic and vegan deodorants, sense I loved the one from Routine so much.

The card says..”Meow Meow Tweet has taken their well-loved classic deodorant cream and made a few modifications to create a new formula, perfect for those with sensitive skin and just as effective. Designed without baking soda and clay, this recipe uses dietary magnesium and arrow root powder to help control moisture and odor.”

I am really anxious to try this. One because it is vegan and non toxic, and two because it is marketed for sensitive skin, which is me. I am pretty sure I will be reviewing every item in this box!

Overall:

Holy moley, this box is perfect! I am going to be using everything and I am so excited to try every single product! There is a $37 value in this box, and I only paid $15 not bad at all!

Thank you for reading! What do you think of this box? Have you tried any of these products? Comment below! Want more B&T? Read this piece next!
