So this one is a little different. With Amazon Prime, you have the option of ordering a beauty box (when available.) There are several boxes available at any given time, and prices range from $11 to $25 for regular to luxury products. This particular one is $11.99. They also offer a few men’s boxes. The way it works is: you buy the box, full of sample size products, and a few days after the box arrives, you get a credit in the amount you spent on the box, in your account to spend on any full size item that was in the box. Its a great concept, if a little hard to understand at first. It took me a few read-throughs to grasp… but I’m a sleep deprived mom, so I might have been a little dense.
Happy June! This little bag of awesome arrived earlier this week.
This is a monthly subscription from Sephora, it $10 a month, and it has always got a great theme. This one is “In a Summer State Of Mind”
So here we go!
Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It Air Styler
I got this in another bag a few months ago and I LOVE it. I don’t like to use a blow dryer, especially in the summer months, and this is so perfect for just letting your hair air dry because it tames the fly-aways, conditions, not to mention, it leaves my hair super silky and smooth.
Tarte Tarteguard Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 20 in Medium
Light and silky, this tinted moisturizer is sheer and doesn’t melt away in the heat. It also doesn’t have a heavy smell, it’s light and clean. I don’t like heavy makeup, so this fits the bill nicely.
Thierry Mugler ALIEN Perfume
This is the perfume extra in the box this month. Its not a scent I would buy for my self, but i can use this sample. The scent has notes of Sambac jasmine, Cashmeran wood, and amber gris.
Kat Von D liquid lipstick in K-Dub.
This is a beautiful bright fuchsia matte Lip color. It’s not my style, as I prefer neutral, and sheer satin or gloss. That being said, it looked surprisingly good on me, and because it’s so bright, the more tan I get, the better it will look.
Briogio Curl Charisma Leave-in Defining Creme
I don’t know if I will use this because my hair is only slightly wavy, but I’ll give it a go.
Hello again beautiful readers! I had to take some time off because, well….
That’s right, We are now parents! Crazy right? Sorry for disappearing on you like that, but time off with no deadlines was essential. But after almost a year, I’m back, and more ready than ever to get back into reviewing boxes.
Now, on to the review!
This was a great month for Ipsy. The bag is adorable, and, after months of getting stuff that won’t get used, I feel like there’s adorable few things in here that I’ll enjoy and probably purchase again.
Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Game Changer
There were two options for nail polish for this month and I was really glad to get this one. I love how this color looks next toy skin tone and it will look even better on my toes when I’m tan!
PUR Fully Charged Mascara
Here’s the description from the website “Opposites attract with this anti-aging mascara that has a magnetic polymer matrix that wraps a positively charged elastic veil around each lash to instantly lift, separate and define each lash for long-lasting performance” I’m excited to try, I’m very picky about my mascara, so I’m hoping it’s good.
Hey Honey Undercover Detoxifying Mud Mask
This should be a great addition to my stash! My skin has been looking tired lately, because, well, I’m tired, but I hate for the world to know that by looking at me, so hopefully this will help.
Skyn Glacial Face Wash with White Willow
Another skin item I will add to my rotation. This should help brighten me up!
Peek Black Primer
I was SO excited about this item! I have seen several tutorial’s on some other sites I follow, and it looks amazing. Because it’s black, it brings out the colors in your eye shadows. You can also use it on your lips, to darken your natural color, or your lipstick. It can also be used to sculpt your cheekbones.
