I was very lucky and won a beautycon box. Check them out on instagram , that is how I came across the giveaway. I did win this back in January… I know super late sharing! Also considering this is a Winter box and its almost Spring lol
I was really excited to see what was inside. I like the packaging, does anyone else hoard boxes like these? Im currently using this one to store beauty samples in. haha
I liked the silver polka dot tissue paper , so cute.
About the BeautyCon Box: This is a beauty subscription box that sends out a box every season, unlike others that do it monthly. The box is also mostly filled with full sized high-end beauty brands. It costs $29 per box. The box I received the value is around $139!
I haven’t tried everything just yet because I have so many products I am trying to use up at the moment I don’t want to add more the the madness. I will try an update in a separate post or add back on here. Also check my instagram , I post a lot on there.
If you want your cheeks to pop, this is the highlighter for you! I never heard of the brand until recently. I saw a video tutorial on instagram and she used this as I was waiting for my box to arrive. I was surprised & happy to see it in this box so I could try it out. Its a nice shimmery gold powder. As I applied it to my cheeks , my eyes got big and started to sparkle. This is the best highlighter I’ve used. I almost wear this daily. It adds a nice sunkissed glow to my cheeks . I also apply it under my brow.
Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Tapered Highlighting Brush #522 $24
I’ve never heard of Luxie beauty before but glad I have now. I’ve been using this to apply the Artist Couture highlighter. iTs soft, feels good in my hand while using it. I really like the pink & rose gold combo.
Colourpop x BeautyCon lippie Stix $5
Have you heard of colourpop? I feel like 2016 I heard about it a lot but I never tried it. Now I’m mad I didn’t try it sooner. This color is a box exclusive. When I saw the shade I was unsure about it. Its definitely not a shade I would have chose for myself. This is one of the reasons I like beauty subscription boxes. Its a neutral shade that feel nice and creamy/buttery on the lips. It also smells a bit like caramels. I heard its similar to the shade cookie that colourpop has, if your like the shade.
BioBELLE Botanic Fiber sheet mask #AfterParty $5
Do you love sheet masks? I cant get enough of them! This one smelled fruity , and not in an artificial way either. The fit was ok, it stayed on for the whole 20 minutes. When I took it off my skin felt soft, smooth, hydrated.
Garnier Skinactive Micellar Cleansing Water
I haven’t used this yet but have heard good things. It is a multipurpose cleanser that helps take off make up, cleanses the skin, and refreshes without drying out your skin.
Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment
I wasn’t expecting the green formula tube. You wash your face and leave your face damp. Add some of the treatment to your fingertips and for 30 seconds rub onto face in circular motions. It does have a tingling/burn sensation but goes away quickly. My face was left a little pink which went away within 5 minutes. My skin felt really soft & clean. It did feel a little tight and dry so make sure to add your serum & moisturizers right away. I don’t think this is something I would buy in the future. I will continue to use and see if anything changes.
L’oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Primer & Feline Mascara
I have so much mascara so I haven’t opened these yet. The primer is supposed to help condition lashes over time. It also helps create a boosting effect, building volume & length. I saw it has good reviews and is about $5.99
Masacara- about $7.99 It promises instant volume & fullness.
Rimmel London The only one lipstick in Call Me Crazy
This lipstick is really bright. It feels great on the lips and smells just like candy. It goes on smoothly but with this color one slight move and your lips will look wonky. I’m not sure if Im a huge fan of this color either. It has an orange hue to it. Maybe with the right outfit and other makeup it would look better.
Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer
This bronzer maybe to dark for my pale skin tone. Someone mentioned that I could use it as a shadow. I will still try it out eventually. Most likely in the Summer when I am not as pale. Its a deluxe sample so perfect to throw in my bag.
Skinvolve Body Karate Cream retail $40
I’ve never heard of this brand before. It’s blended with Pure Caffeine and Argan Oil to moisturize, improve skin texture and tone. I opened it to see how it smelled and wasn’t a fan at all. I put it on after my shower on my legs and it really didn’t do a great job at moisturizing or hydrating my skin. It did absorb quickly and didn’t leave skin greasy but it’s not a product I would recommend or purchase.
This box is worth it in my opinion. 11 products high end/ drugstore brands for as little as $2.63 for each product. Have you tried any of these products?
