Fall 2016 Beautycon Box

Hey everyone! It is officially the best time of the year, also known as the Fall season! Today I am going to break down the Fall 2016 Beautycon Box. For those that do not know, Beautycon Box is a seasonal subscription and each box comes out to be $38 after shipping and everything else. Each box is over $100 in value and has a collaborator who is typically a social media influenster. So this box is done in collaboration with Makeup Shayla and Angel aka Mac Daddy. Let’s jump on into the box then.

The first thing that catches my eye are these cute little accessories that don’t typically come in these boxes. There is a little bag of some cute pink gummy sugar lips by Sugarfina. I also noticed a really cute lipstick pin by Laser Kitten. These things don’t typically come in the box but I think they are really cute unique touches. Also Beautycon threw in some really cute stickers that definitely match Shayla and Angel’s personalities. I especially love the sticker that looks like Shayla’s dog Titus. There is also a sketch of Angel & Shayla done by @rongrong_devoe_illustration on instagram, and it is an awesome piece of art.

Next I notice the Flutter Lashes. I am extremely excited about these because they are the “#islay” lashes which were actually created in collaboration with Shayla. These are also limited edition lashes, so that is pretty cool they were included. Shayla is always wearing these lashes on snapchat and I love the way they look. They also included a small tube of the clear white Duo eyelash glue, so that is great because you are ready to wear your lashes now.

The next product I grab out of the box is by Simple skincare and it is a pack of their cleansing facial wipes. I have tried Simple wipes before and I honestly am not a fan. I typically just use these wipes for swatches, or just keep them in my car for emergencies. I found them to be really rough on my skin.

Jouer’s Essential Lip Enhancer is the next product in the box and I am so excited because this is actually one of my holy grail products and I recently ran out of it. This product is great at hydrating and refreshing your lips. Shayla also uses this quite often on snapchat, and I have been using it for at least 2 years. It also really helps with the fullness of your lips, I highly recommend this product.

The next product is a Double Ended Highlighter Pencil by The BrowGal. I have never heard of this brand before but anything with the word “highlighter” can make me excited. I swatched this pencil and I can already tell it is a very creamy texture, seems to blend well and it does look like it could be a very pretty brow highlight. One end is matte and the other end is shimmer. I think by the looks of it, I would use the matte to highlight my brow, and maybe use the shimmer end as an eyeshadow color. Both shades are very pretty and creamy.

The next 2 things in the box are a Milani eyeshadow in the shade “Bella Taupe” and an Ofra Cosmetics liquid lipstick in the shade “Mocha”. I have a few Milani products that I love but I have never tried their eyeshadow so I am excited to give this a try. It says it is a Gel Powder Eyeshadow, and it is a pretty soft brown taupe shade. I also own quite a few Ofra products, including liquid lipsticks but I do not own this shade. This is a very pretty mauve shade, and I think it is perfect for fall.

Also in the box is Mocha-Kyssed Bronzer Lotion by Mystic Tan. I am really fair skinned and to me, I am really picky about my self-tanners so this is kind of a miss for me. There is a chance I will try it after looking at reviews, but I rarely self tan especially during the fall months. You also receive a Large Angled 504 Luxie Brush. I have never tried any Luxie brushes but I have heard good things about them, and it seems really soft so I am excited to try this one out the next time I do my makeup.

And that wraps up the Fall 2016 Beautycon Box. I think this was a pretty good box, and a good deal for less than $40. I do admit I like previous boxes more, but this is still not bad. The main misses for me were the Simple wipes, and the Mystic Tan lotion. I should definitely be getting use out of everything else though. Until next time everyone, thanks for reading!

Beauty Wishlist

Hey everyone, for today’s post I decided to share with you all the top 5 items I have on my current beauty related wish list. There is no specific order of these items but they are my top 5, and I have not purchased any of these items before. Let’s get started.

First on the list is, Josie Maran Vibrancy Argan Oil Foundation. So I absolutely need to get my hands on this foundation. Beauty youtuber, Jaclyn Hill, raves about this foundation and swears it is amazing. I have pretty dry skin so any type of foundation that is suppose to make my skin dewy and vibrant, I want to try it. I also love Josie Maran’s other products, especially her argan oil. I typically mix a drop or two into my foundations I use now, so for this foundation to already have it, it is perfect. You can get this at Sephora for $45.

Number 2 on the list goes to, the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. I have never tried a primer that is like this primer before. I love the fact that it is just a nice light water that you mist onto your face and you don’t have to rub it in. To me, it doesn’t seem like it would be cakey or heavy on your skin. Like I said previously, I have dry skin so the fact that this is suppose to hydrate and revitalize your skin really attracts me. This goes for $32, full size.

The number 3 spot on the list is the Wave Spray by Ouai. Now I really want to try not only this product, but the Ouai brand in general. Jen Atkins is the creator of the Oaui hair care brand and she is a really respected hair stylist in the beauty world. I have been seeing a lot of good reviews about this spray and I know Khloe Kardashian uses it quite a bit too. This spray is suppose to give you cute, beach style waves without the crunchy dryness that other sprays can give you. It goes for $26.00.

The next product on my list is by Nails Inc. It is their Paint Can Spray On Nail Polish. You can buy this unique product at Sephora for only $12. Now I have a huge obsession with packaging. If a product has cute, interesting, and eye-catching packaging then I am going to buy it. So not only do I love this packaging and think it is super cool that it looks like a spray paint can, but I also love the idea of just spraying on my nail polish. I hate painting my nails, so if using this product is as easy and mess free as it is advertised to be, I would love to try it.

Finally, the #5 spot goes to the Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops. These drops go for $42 and are an amazing highlighting product. From the swatches I have seen these drops look like liquid metal. I also love the fact that they are drops, so you can customize your highlight however you want. You can mix shades, mix it with your foundation, and use as much or as little as you want. I have also seen people just use it right on top of their foundations. They have six different shades, 4 highlights and 2 bronzers. To me this product definitely looks like a must try product.
