August 2017 Boxycharm

I love Boxycharm! What’s not to love about a subscription box that gives you 4-5 FULL SIZE products, valued over $100 for $21 a month??! I can’t Think of anything either!

I was lucky enough to get off the wait-list in time for this months box.

This box includes:

Pur eyelashes:

Moda Pro Brush Trio:

moda-pro-brush-set

#grlpwr liquid lipstick by the beauty crop:

liquid-lipstick-by-the-crop

Belladonna eyeliner:

Bellapierre-gel-eyeliner-pencil

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea eyeshadow palette:

$10 off purchase of $60 at tarte.com

I like to try things for a little while before I give reviews because there is always the potential for me to change my mind about a product. I’ll give my review on this box at the end of September.

What is your favorite subscription box???

WUNDERBROW Now at CVS!!!

I’ve been on the fence about tying Instagram hyped products like Wunderbrow! It’s not because I thought it wouldn’t work, but because I hate ordering hyped products online. Because returning products bought online is such a hassle, I end up just keeping them.

Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon Wunderbow just sitting on a CVS end cap!! I see you CVS!!

And because they have such a generous return policy… and because I spend way too much time there, it makes returns a breeze!

I plan to test this out over the weekend and give a full review!

Does your CVS carry Wunderbrow???

My Super Simple Skincare Routine

The amount of time that I spent searching for a foundation that would give me “perfect” looking skin is really embarrassing. I bounced from one heavy, full coverage foundation to the next!

The truth is, foundation only looks as good as the skin underneath it. So like any beauty aficionado, I turned to YouTube! I was peppered with the latest and so-called greatest routines and product recommendations.

August Favorites

Summer is almost over and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m more of an indoor girl that’s always hot!  Fall cannot get here fast enough.  And because August is coming to an end, I thought I would share some of my favorites of this month.

Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream is Coffee Glaze $4.99

This BB Cream is my absolute holy grail, ride or die complexion product!  It’s super hard for me to find a drug store tinted moisturizer of BB Cream that’s brown-girl friendly.  So when i stumbled across this gem at CVS, I was thrilled.

Although it’s a BB Cream, it really does have to coverage of a medium coverage foundation.   I like to apply it with my elf foundation brush which gives me the most beautiful finish.  And at $4.99 it really can’t be beat!

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara in Blackest Black $7.49

I talked about this mascara in my no makeup, makeup post.  This stuff is amazing.  it gives me thick, fluffy lashes like I like!  Is it a dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex??  Don’t know.  Too expensive.  Wont be finding out!  I love that the L’Oreal mascara is affordable enough to replace every few months like we are supposed to.

Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer Dulce de Leche #15 $14.00

Try saying that 5 times fast!  I purchased this on the recommendation from the awesome people of my favorite sub reddit group r/MakeupAddiction.  I made a post asking for recommendations for mid priced concealers because drug store brands still don’t make shades dark enough for me.  They recommended this concealer so I ordered it!

I love this concealer!  It covers my dark circles without looking cakey or settling into fine lines.  It feels super light on the skin and the color is perfect for covering my dark circles.

 

What are some of your favorites? Let me know in the comment section below!

No Makeup, Makeup Look Using All Drugstore Products


I wish that I could say that getting a, “No, I woke up like this!” makeup look was as easy as slapping on some tinted moisturizer, mascara and lip gloss and running out the door.  My dark circles, large pores,
