This month I got….
From Marsk, Mineral Eyeshadow in Vanilla Frosting. A perfect treat for the birthday month! This shade is definitely vanilla and is the perfect color to wear at the inner corners of the eye.
From Revlon, Colorstay Nail Enamel. Different subbies got different shades and the one I ended up with is Spanish Moss which is a khaki green cream. I am a fan of Revlon nail polishes but not a fan of their CEO's recent behavior. IDK if anything new has come about since it all went down but I hope something positive will come out of it all in the end. For now I'll be passing this to a friend.
From Absolute New York, Absolute Love Lip Balm. This is flavored with Bubble Gum and smells amazing. It also feels incredible on the lips, moisturizing yet not goopy.
From Avon, Big Color Eye Pencil. Different subbies got different shades and the one I ended up with is Sunkissed which is a very brassy orange-gold. Actually perfect for the name and for the Summer-time! The formula was smooth and easy to blend out. For it to stay crease free be sure to wear a secondary primer underneath.
From GlamGlow, YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Treatment. I know people love this but when I tried it this past Summer it burned. And when I say burned, I'm putting it mildly. The second it touched my face I had to take it off and I was really scared it was going to take skin with it because it hurt that much. My skin can be sensitive so I passed that one on to my step-sister, who loved it. So, you might like it too! Not for me, though =\
This months box was wonderful and had so many awesome makeup items! It's definitely a major plus to see makeup products included that are full size and wearable. Also, in honor of their b-day month, Beauty Box 5 included a $20 gift card code to yourMinerals so I'm very excited to check that out!
