Boxy Charm (BOXY LUXE) Wild Flower- September 2018

Hello Friends! I have been on a bit of a break because of being so dang sick! This baby is determined to take all my food and all my energy but I definitely got a boost with the arrival of my Boxy Luxe box.

First I want to talk about the launch of Boxy Luxe. It was a bit messy. I think it’s crazy for the company to not think they would have the amount of traffic they did especially with how much they hyped it up. I am beyond grateful I did get thru and received the box. I didn’t think I did at first. It wasn’t until hours later my bestie told me that we did in fact make it on the list!! Talk about an emotional day. Any who lets jump into the goods!

IMG_6607Here she is in all her glory. Let me just say it is so much better in person. I don’t think I have ever been so excited for a box! IMG_6610First up I  received the Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette from tarte. It is stunning and smells like chocolate which is oh so delicious. The shades blend like a dream with amazing pigment and super creaminess. This would also double as a great quick neutral eye palette! MSRP – 45$

Next pictured is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette. This is a very pretty neautral palette in which you can create multiple looks. It has nice pigment and blends well. There are also chocolately colors as well as greys. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Girlactik Skin Glow Duo. I was really excited about this at first but I do wish I would have gotten the Laura Gellar blush instead now. This is a cream highlight and just doesn’t pack the punch that I love but I will have to keep playing with it to see if I can change my mind. MSRP – 26$

IMG_6609Next up I received the Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-wrinkle Booster Serum. I am sooo excited about this serum. I am die hard for the lancome genifique but it is crazy expensive. I am hoping to love this product just as much and maybe have a new favorite serum. Also happy I received the serum instead of the moisturizer because I am currently drowning in moisturizers. lol Juice Beauty is a great all natural, cruelty free brand and I may have to grab more products! MSRP – 80$

Pictured in the middle is the Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil. This of course smells so amazing like everything else they make and leaves skin with a very natural glow. I thought it would be over the top but it’s really perfect even if you aren’t super tan like moi. MSRP – 35$

Lastly pictured is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water in the scent centering citrus. It does smell good and leave the skin refreshed but I’m not sure yet if it does anything as a primer. Further testing will have to be done. MSRP – 32$

IMG_6611Who isn’t excited to get brushes?? I have a ton and I always want more. I honestly wanted to purchase these alamar Ojitos brushes just on how cute they are with that green. Lucky for me I thought they would show up in a boxy charm box eventually, so I waited. They are super soft and apply shadow beautifully but I do prefer a natural hair brush for blending. MSRP – 18$

As for this Luxie 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush… well let’s just talk about luxury! It is so soft and my foundation is blended like a dream. It is pricey but OMG it is so amazing. New favorite for sure! MSRP – 38$IMG_6612Lastly in the box I received R+Co High Dive Moisture Shine Cream. I haven’t tried this out yet so the verdict is out still. But I’m not a huge fan of hair products. I will give it a fair chance tho. MSRP – 16$

I got the Lorac Pro Liquid Lipstick. I’m so obsessed with this true red shade. Nude colors just don’t look great on me and I’m all about bold lips. That makes a statement that I love. MSRP – 19$

Last in the picture is the Vintage Cosmetic Company Dolly Bow Make-up Headband. Perfect for keeping your hair back as you clean your skin, apply makeup, or relax with a face mask. MSRP – 4.99$

Oh and don’t forget that super cute tote! That was unexpected. If you weren’t keeping that is a value of $348.99. That is just amazing and So exciting! Boxycharm slays the game again!

BoxyCharm Updates on this Months Box

I have been testing out this months box and I have a lot of opinions. Normally I love the box, might not use everything but this month is different! So I am going to dive in right away.

Starting off with the Alamar Cosmetics eye shadow palette. It is AMAZING. The pigment and color payoff is so rich and creamy. I have no complaints! I thought I would be missing a light base shade but the colors are build-able so you really don’t need any other palette to make a perfect cohesive look.

Next up the Luxie brushes are really nice. They are so soft and blend out creams and powders like a dream. I only with the foundation brush was thicker so that it would create fuller looks. Facetune_26-06-2018-13-03-33

Now my negatives… I don’t like the battington lashes. One I enjoy a fuller lash and two the band wasn’t flexible enough. I would definitely recommend the shop eden lashes or house of lashes.

Lastly I didn’t like the ofra lip color at all. It was not a great color for me. It was an odd brownish grey tone on my lips and I will be giving the lippie to my mom as soon as I see her. Not cute on me… I need something brighter or more colorful. (Obviously I am wearing a different lip in the picture above, it’s an old collection color from Jeffree Star)

Berber’s Treat Review- Exfoliate and Moisture!

Hello friends! First I want to say I’m sorry for my absence last week. My son is teething his molars, had ear infections in both ears and just wasn’t feeling good so that was where I have been. Things are much better with my little one. Then this weekend I got ate up by mosquitoes. So I have welts all over my legs now, I’m desperately trying everything to get them to go away since I leave for my honeymoon in 5 days! So if you know of anything that will help please leave me comments! Now let’s get to this review. This post may contain affiliate links. I was sent these items for review purpose, all opinions and statements are my own.

I received the Berber’s Treat Black Eucalyptus Gel and the Kessa Exfoliating Glove. I was a little afraid that the combo of these two were going to irritate all the bug bites I previously told you about but I am so extremely surprised. My skin has been left feeling smooth and moisturized and surprisingly not itchy. I love that the Black Eucalyptus Gel is 100% natural, 3 ingredients only!

I have been searching for an awesome exfoliator and I can’t believe how much I love this one. The gel can be used on your face or use it with the mitt to exfoliate your body. Product InformationInstyle-BerbersTreat

And can you believe Kylie Minogue loves it too! You know it’s good when a pop star talks about it as a favorite product in a magazine!

Eden Rose- Amazing Lashes???

Hello friends! How is your may going? I personally can’t complain, May has be great so far and I know will only get better. Recently I was reached out to by shopedenrose,com to select lashes for free, just pay shipping. This is not a promotion or special for me! Head over there and get your own lashes too!

There are tons of styles of 3D faux mink lashes. I picked out 4 styles, they have since added a lot more! They would normally be 20$ a pair but right now they are 0$!!! shop here. I am not getting paid to say anything, I was actually just blown away with how much I loved the lashes! They are super light weight and fluffy.

IMG_5417Screen Shot 2018-05-10 at 5.34.10 AMScreen Shot 2018-05-10 at 5.34.28 AM Here are the four styles I chose and I am beyond obsessed. I already packed a couple in my makeup bag for my honeymoon. I don’t like when lashes have too thick of a band or feel too heavy. These are seriously close to perfection. They have a thin band and are so wispy and feel natural.

I think I may have to get my hands on the last few styles that I didn’t order! Definitely check them out friends!!!!!

Bad Habit Review- MUST TRY!

Hey friends! I know I have baby fever and I have lots of mommy posts prepped and ready but trust me I have not forgot about beauty and how much I love all things makeup!

If you have been with me a while you know that since becoming a mom I love finding amazing affordable makeup that performs high end but costs drug store. I know some people have expressed how they have a problem with companies making dupes of high end products but I love it, if it is done well. Bad Habit Beauty is a bomb.com company with whom I am obsessed with!!! You can purchase Bad Habit through the Hush app.

Wanna know how much I love Bad Habit?? I have purchased every item they have made!!!! Everything has been amazing quality and such a great option if you can’t afford or don’t want to spend 45$ on a palette. BHB makes dupes for many palettes like many of the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes and Huda Beauty.

IMG_4078

 

To the left is the newest collection from Bad Habit Beauty. It is a great dupe for the Huda Beauty Obsessions eyeshadow palettes which run 27$ a palette. The Bad Habit palettes run 10$ each or bundle all 4 palettes for 30$. It is really amazing that they can get such great quality product and fantastic packaging for such a low price.

 

IMG_4079

The Hush app is a must for any beauty lover. They have so many amazing brands and some other brands I have never heard of, but I can confidently tell you that Bad Habit Beauty is a must!!!!

The Ink Gel Eyeliner- Pretty Vulgar Review

Hello friends! How was your weekend? We had a friend stay with us which I always love. I love entertaining!! Any ways, I ordered this gel liner based on recommendations from youtubers. It was raved about and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I have to say I was so disappointed with this product. My overall rating would be a 2 out of 5 stars and lets dive in to why.. IMG_3811

The packaging is stunning. I love how it looks like an old timey ink pot. The copper/gold is beautiful. Gold and black is my favorite combination. The unicarton is also beautiful. The font and script, I love everything about it. And the container makes you feel like you are getting a lot of product.

Next this liner is EXTREMELY pigmented. It is black as it gets which I really like and was surprised but how dark it actually was. A little bit goes a long way which is awesome. I think this liner would really last someone a long time.

Unfortunately there are negatives for me.. As always your experience could be totally different. IMG_3827This was right after applying the liner so it hadn’t smudged yet, but I don’t think this product is for those of us with oily eyelids. After only a couple hours my liner had transferred to my upper lids and the bottom was very smudged and smokey… It wasn’t cute. I hope y’all have different experience with the liner. It claims to be waterproof and last all day but I didn’t get that pleasure.

Lastly it was an expensive liner. At 24$ I want a liner that lasts until I decide to take it off.

Have you tried pretty vulgar liner? What was your experience?

till next time

xoxo Erin
