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!
