January Boxy Charm

Hello friends!

This months boxy charm was a huge improvement over last month. Hopefully the continue to improve and go back to being amazing like they were a few months ago. This months theme was ROCK 2018. Everything in the box was very shimmering and shiny.

So let’s dive into this box!!IMG_3906

First product was the Dr. Brandt pores no more luminizer primer. Retail 38$ This primer delivers a natural radiant glow while blurring pores and imperfections for a beautifully illuminated flawless complexion. —It worked so well!! I love this primer, even to wear alone.

IT Cosmetics brow power MSRP: 24$ This brow pencil is amazing and contains so many amazing ingredients including green tea, vitamins, and antioxidants. This pencil is bomb!!

Crown Pro Glam Metals Palette. retail 25$ This palette is super blendable and very pretty in metallic colors but with no mattes I don’t feel like I can make a complete look.IMG_4043

PUR Bronze and Brighten cheek palette. MSRP: 34$ It claims to be an on the go highlight, bronzer, and blush palette but all the shades have a bit too much shimmer for me. Especially the bronzer, if it was a little less shimmery the palette would be perfect. I will probably end up using the bronzer as eyeshadow.

Grande Cosmetics Grandelips Hydrating Lip Plumper. Retail 27$. Infused with valulip and hyaluronic acid, instantly improves lip volume within 3-5 minutes while hydrating. Results may vary is correct… this was just a lip gloss on me. Sad because I was hoping for some super plump lips!!

Till next time my loves!

Wonderland Makeup Test and Review

Hello friends! I am back with another review for you. This time is a collaboration with the UK brand Wonderland. So without further ado let’s jump right in.

Wonderland sent me a primer, two pigments and a mascara. The package was so cute and I wanted to start with the packaging. IMG_3919 I love the simple black and white packaging. It’s clean and sleek and allows you to see what the product is clearly.

IMG_3920

Studio Finish Primer. I give this primer a 5 out of 5! It really is one of the best primers I have used. My skin was extremely smooth, pores were all filled, and my foundation went on so perfectly. Even in my normal editing process I didn’t have to touch my skin. I was truly impressed by this primer. My foundation also lasted all day without budging. This is a must try product! https://www.wonderlandmakeup.co.uk/primer/

IMG_3922

 

Next product is the Wonderdust Loose Pigment. I have the colors Pandora (left) and Halo (right). I give these pigments 4.5 out of 5. I will say in my opinion you do need some sort of base or glitter glue to get an intense color pay off. These pigments are packaged so perfectly. They contain a sifter so you do not make a huge mess which is so nice compared to most other pigments I’ve seen on the market. https://www.wonderlandmakeup.co.uk/pigment/

IMG_3923

Wonderland Lash Thickening Mascara. 4 out of 5. This mascara is perfect for someone who loves a more natural look. For me it was the perfect mascara to coat my lashes before applying false lashes. I do wish that it gave my lashes more volume and length. It did however separate my lashes and left them without a single clump! This mascara wasn’t out of this world but it was really nice. Just apply more than one coat and you are ready to go!!https://www.wonderlandmakeup.co.uk/mascara/

Here is the look I created using these products. My skin never smoother and I used the blue as a base for the Halo pigment and the mascara coated my lashes of course. I had so much fun trying out these products and I will definetely have to try more!

December Boxy Charm

I know my post for December’s boxy charm is up super late but since I was out of town I received my box late. I have to be honest I was incredibly underwhelmed by this box. I really wasn’t even excited to try it out, which is super sad because normally I am beyond pumped about the box. So let’s jump in.IMG_3799

In the box I received a blush kit by Real Her that is retailed at $32. All 3 blushes were shimmery so I felt that this item may be better for spring or summer but I don’t think I will reach for it much at all. The middle shade is really pretty but the other two are not my style…IMG_3802

Next up I got a Pro Concealer Palette by Bellapierre, retailing for $30. Now this looks like a nice palette with really big pans for anyone who uses color correcting concealers. I personally don’t… So again this was a bust for me but that is totally personal. My mom received a bronzer in her boxy charm box, which I am totally jealous of!

Next is a My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick by Pretty Vulgar, retails for $24. This product was a love hate for me because I was totally stoked about receiving something by Pretty Vulgar and I can’t wait to try more of their products but I just do not like metallic liquid lipsticks. I don’t think they look good on me and so this will just not be used unfortunately. I will probably put it in a give away, ( I did not even open this because I tried my moms)

I believe all boxy charmers received the Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara by Tarte retailing for $23. This mascara is really great and I am happy to have at least one product that will be used in my box this month! This guy really added lots of volume but won’t be replacing my l’oreal mascara or fake lashes.

Lastly I got a Deluxe Blush Brush from Crown Brush, retails for $12. The brush has really soft, synthetic bristles which is nice when you want to use cream or powder products. It is pretty dense so you want to be very light handed so that you don’t get too much product.

Did you receive the december boxy charm? What did you think? If you don’t receive boxy charm you should. Normally I love my entire box and at only 21$ a month it is an incredible deal!!

E.L.F. Newness Review

Alright friends I have tested out many of the new products from E.L.F that I had recently purchased and here are my initial thoughts.

  • Clarifying Charcoal Bubble Mask- I really enjoyed this mask. It did tingle a bit as I let it bubble on my face for about 10 minutes. After rinsing it off my skin was left clean, tight, and smooth. I would definitely recommend it!
  • Lock On Face Primer- I have only used the primer once but.. this primer is very tacky and kind of thick. I like it but it is almost a little difficult to use. When I applied my foundation it went on a little patchy. Not sure this is really a win for me, I’ll have to keep testing out using it.
  • Blending Sponge- This is a little like the beauty blender but when you wet it, it gets huge! I have to give it a few more tries because with that primer it was just a difficult day for foundation. They are super soft tho!
  • Beauty Shield Antioxidant Finishing Powder- I really like this powder. It was super smooth and silky and photographed well. This one is a win!
  • Bronzer- I got the shade light matte. I like this bronzer because you could build it up and it was the perfect cool tone for contouring but also warm enough to warm up the skin a bit.
  • Blush- Shade bright pink. I actually love this color! It looks really nice on the skin and can be built up. Winner!
  • Highlight- Shade Glow. This shade was beautiful but not blinding. It also was much more golden of a highlight than I expected but still very pretty for an everyday glow.
  • Liquid Matte Lipstick- This is the last product I tried out so far and I really loved it. It does require 2 layers to get a super full opaque look. The color I am wearing in the picture is Vampy Violet.

photo1IMG_2384From bottom to top: highlighter, blush, bronzer, liquid matte lipstick in the colors- vampy violet, smokey taupe, coffee(sorry it smeared), lip liner- natural and deep berry.

I have just a few last products to try still but so far things have been pretty great!

Foot Mask Review

OMG. Friends two weeks ago I tested out a foot mask I purchased on Amazon. It is from Mond’Sub and is the sage exfoliator foot mask. It was only 3$ if I am not mistaken and I received two treatments. IMG_1883 I followed the directions by applying the mask and leaving it on for an hour then rinsing my feet. It says within 3-7 days feet should begin to peel. After removing the mask and rinsing and letting my feet dry, my feet felt like paper mache. It was so bizarre.

Here I am two weeks later and my feet are still peeling and it is so strange. I was expecting to peel in larger sheets but no it is quite the opposite. Sounds gross to write about it. If you do decide to do a foot mask I would reccomend picking up a really good foot moisturizer to help your feet out!! I’m testing one out I picked up Monday so I will let you know how I like it in a later post.

Overall I do not think I will be purchasing another foot mask. My feet are super soft where the skin has peeled but weeks of snake feet is bizarre and I don’t like it. Maybe I will stop being a cheapo and go get a fancy pedicure. haha!

Till next time

xoxo Erin
