FOTD: Fall Inspired (Video Tutorial Included)

IMG_1906

Hey lovelies,

This week’s face of the day post is actually a video tutorial! I really wanted to do a fall inspired tutorial, and I’ve been feeling these wine and plummy red shades lately, so I decided to just smack those colors right on my eyeballs and lips.

Ever have one of those days where it’s just not a good selfie day? I was having one of those days, but I’m overall happy with how this look turned out, other than the fact that I somehow forgot to include an inner corner highlight. I wasn’t going to not upload this based on just that, but it’s all good. I think it looks fine without it.

Anyway, I really wanted to do a video tutorial using the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 palette. It’s one that I use so often, but so many of the shades remind me of Fall. That and many of the shades in this palette are reminiscent of a few Lorac palettes and the Naked 3 palette, so it’s an awesome money saver without skimping out on quality! I always talk about how amazing it is, so I decided to put my brush where my mouth is and show you all. Okay, I put my brush where…my eye is?? You know what I mean.

Fall Lipstick Challenge Update + Overview

Hey lovelies,

urban decay shame

Day 1: Urban Decay “Shame” lined with Colourpop’s “Creature” lippie pencil. I really loved this combo, and it was the lip look I was wearing in last week’s “Face of the Day” post. It’s such a gorgeous deep berry shade, and the finish of the Urban Decay Revolution lipsticks are semi matte, moisturizing, and actually do stay put for quite some time, especially when paired with a liner. I actually scored this lipstick off Glambot during a clearance sale, and it’s definitely made me think that I may need some more of these in my life sometime soon. I’ve been eyeballing the new matte ones lately…especially 1993.

colourpop creeper

Day 2: Milani Liner in “True Red” and Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipstick in “Creeper.” There’s nothing I love more than a bright, true red. This combination makes my heart flutter. I made a post on instagram stating that if you own the ultra matte lipsticks and you don’t enjoy the feeling, try them with a liner to create a barrier between your lips and the liquid lipstick. Milani’s true red is the perfect shade match for Creeper.

nyx liquid suede lipstick

Day 3: Nyx Liquid Suede Lippie in “Amethyst.” Oh, this shade. It’s the blurple of my dreams. These lipsticks are all incredible so far. They set well on my lips and aren’t too drying. They’re pigmented, and though they don’t last long, I still love them. I’m going to be doing a full video review with lip swatches of these, but this one was too gorgeous to not slather on my lips.

notoriously morbi lilith

Day 4: Notoriously Morbid Cosmetics “Lilith.” This is my first purchase from this indie brand, and I did so because Sharie from SecondhandSweetness swatched it and raved about this brand, and I was hooked when I saw this color. It’s so damn pretty. It’s the dark burgundy of my dreams. It’s the perfect mix of red and brown. These are vegan and cruelty free FYI, and they are only $9 a piece, and from what I could tell, pretty long lasting. Definitely worth looking into.

kat von d lolita

Day 5: Kat Von D “Lolita.” This is a cult favorite liquid lipstick, and my first ever liquid lipstick. It’s what started my obsession with liquid to matte formulas, so it has a bit of a sentimental value to me. I’m also pretty sure mine is part of the “bad” batch since it’s more brown than dusty rose, but I love this shade and haven’t bothered to purchase the newer batch because of it. If I’m not mistaken, Kat Von D will be releasing a shade that looks similar to this one since it was so popular.

city color cosmetics hibiscus martini

Day 6: City Color Cosmetics “Hibiscus Martini.” I ordered 3 of the new creamy lip stain shades the day they came out. I almost didn’t order this one, but then I saw the lady’s from TheLipSwatch on Instagram swatch it, and I decided I needed it. Okay, I needed it like I need another hole in my face, but look at this shade. It screams Fall to me. It’s a burnt red color that doesn’t look too orange. Though I don’t mind burnt orange colors since I just ordered one of the Ofra Cosmetics and KathleenLights collab lipsticks…oops.

nyx vintage

Day 7: Nyx Liquid Suede “Vintage.” I know, I wore two shades from this line in one week. In my defense, I’m still testing these out so I can put a video review with lip swatches together before these are released in Ulta stores on 9/24. This shade is a gorgeous deep plummy-red shade. I’ll speak more about this formula and such in my full review though.

city color cosmetics triple berry spritzer

Day 8: City Color Cosmetics “Triple Berry Spritzer.” I did this one because someone requested a swatch of it. It’s so freakin’ gorgeous though. I feel this would be a really pretty and flirty darker nude for Fall. Not everyone is into the darker colors, and I understand that. I want to throw a variety of shades into the mix this month. This is another one of the new shades from the Creamy Lips line. These glide on like butter. Definitely a formula you could keep in your purse to throw on while in a hurry.

During the first week of the challenge I realized I could keep this going for several months if I wanted to. I told you all I am obsessed with lipstick. We’re all allowed to have our guilty pleasures, right? Mine is lipstick, coffee, and diet coke. I think it could be worse.

Anyway, that’s it for this week! I hope you’re all enjoying these posts and the swatches on Instagram.

Speaking of Instagram, you can still join in and show my your favorite fall shades using #lunaloveslipstick

There are some that have been doing so!

Check out xxoctoberoblivionxx and scout_harper 🙂 they both used my tag this week and I always love their posts in general!

Fall Themed Lipstick Challenge! Join Me!

IMG_7747 IMG_7623

Hey lovelies,

Today’s post is going to be a bit different than normal. It’s the day before September starts, and September is always a fun month for me. I know I have mentioned this a million times, but I love fall. I love rosy cheeks and hot drinks. I love snuggling and wearing warm pajamas. I want to bring in the month where Autumn officially begins by wearing a different lipstick everyday. More specifically, I’m going to try and keep it fall themed.

I know the Lipstick Challenge already exists, so I am not claiming this as some new and innovative idea, just one that I’m putting my own little personal spin on, because I truly do feel so much happier when the weather is cooler. I also need to go through my collection and wipe the dust off of some of my old loves. Yes, I call my lipsticks loves. Don’t judge me.

I will be wearing a different lipstick/combo everyday in September, mostly focusing on deeper nudes, reds, and fun colors. Each Wednesday I will be posting my lip combos with pictures and such until September is over, and then I can start on Halloween things. Muahahaha!

Anyway, I’m posting this as an invitation to join me. If you want to, I will make sure to link your instagram/blog site in my post every Wednesday. Oh, and please do not think you need to be all about the vampy life to participate with me! If you want to do so just to go through your own stash and rekindle some old favorites, that’s lovely too, and I will totally still link you in the posts. I will try to find some way to share the love with everyone, whether it’s on Twitter or wherever.

In order to keep up with posts from everyone I will be using the tag #lunaloveslipstick (I love alliteration, can’t you tell?) so that you can all see my posts and I can see yours to like and share.

My instagram handle is the same as my blog, lunafayebeauty.

The first post will be on Wednesday, September 9th 🙂

I can’t wait to show you all some of my favorite fall shades, and I hope you all will join me!

As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days!

Lip Swatch: Jeffree Star Cosmetics “Posh Spice”

Hey lovelies,

It’s Saturday! Hooray and stuff! I know that I usually have more elaborate Swatch Saturdays planned, but today I want to do a quick post. Have no fear, I have a few really awesome reviews on new products coming up! I did a bit of shopping. Okay, a lot of shopping, but with all these new releases happening all at once, can you blame me?

Something that I picked up virtually in the midst of my pajama friendly shopping spree I ended up picking up “Posh Spice” by Jeffree Star Cosmetics. I only picked that one up because I ordered quite a few colorful things from Colourpop. I originally wasn’t going to order it, but the free shipping deal sucked me in, and I saw several swatches on Instgram that made my heart flutter. Instagram made me do it.

This shade is described as a “greige taupe” and I feel that’s a very proper description.

jeffree star posh spice

I will link my previous review of this brand at the end of this post, but can we talk about how gorgeous this shade is? It’s a darker nude that I feel will suite many skin tones. As always, I swatch in natural light and I have very fair skin with cool undertones for reference.

Just as a quick overview though, the Velour Liquid Lipsticks are very pigmented and apply smoothly. They also don’t dry down fully and stay about 5% tacky so that they wear comfortably and won’t crumble. They are transfer proof, and kiss proof. They are not make out proof though, just a heads up.

The applicator on these are my favorites as well. They are very “brush” like, which makes applying so much easier, in my opinion. I typically don’t have to go back in with a small lip brush to perfect anything, unless we’re getting up close and personal like we are today.

jeffree star posh spice

These are $18 a piece, which is higher end, but I honestly feel these are worth it. There’s a lot of product in these, and this formula is probably my all time favorite. I wear “Unicorn Blood” constantly.

I will definitely be sporting this shade as the weather cools down. Have you picked up any amazing and unique lipstick shades lately? Tell me about it!

I hope you all enjoyed this quick swatch post! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having lovely days!

Face of Day: Gold Halo Eye

IMG_1588

Hey lovelies,

It’s Thursday, which means I’m going to show you all a look and talk about some products that I slapped on my face. Okay, I brushed and applied them gently and with a bit of precision, but you all get the point. I have some new things to talk about and I brought out some old favorites. I’m officially doing Autumn looks, and I wanted to start off with something warm and bright, and I added some of my dramatic flare to it.

IMG_1585

I’m not even sure what to call this look? I kinda put several trends together. The grungy red shades, the glamorous halo eye, and vintage red lip. I don’t even understand myself some days.

Anyway, let’s move right along into the selfie overload and details behind this look.

milani romance

Base: I went back to my true love and used my Laura Mercier hydrating primer. I then used my Revlon Colorstay in 110 Ivory as my foundation. Because this is a fall inspired look, I wanted to use something fuller coverage, and the Colorstay formula is an old favorite of mine. The color match is almost perfect (just a tinge too yellow for me) and is full coverage, but doesn’t look cakey or feel weird on my face. I applied it with a real techniques sponge.

I set my powder with the Laura Geller balance and brightening powder in “porcelain” (surprise) and used my Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer in “Chantilly” under my eyes. I also covered up the volcanic blemish I have on my chin with my La Girl green concealer and put a bit more concealer on it. I don’t suggest this for anything but pictures. Sadly, suffocating zits in concealer doesn’t kill them. It only makes them stronger. I set my under eyes with the Ben Nye Luxury powder in Cameo.

Contour: Wet n Wild’s “Dulce De Leche” and the darkest shade in the Elf contour kit on the very outside of the hollow of my cheek, just to add some depth.

Blush: Milani’s “Luminoso” When in doubt, Luminoso.

Hightlight: The Balm’s “Mary-Lou Manizer” I haven’t used this highlight in a hot minute, and it’s always going to be one of my favorites.

milani romance

Eyes: Primer is Hard Candy’s eye primer. I went over that with Nyx’s “Immaculate” single since I was going to be using darker colors and wanted them to blend smoothly, and this was also my brow bone highlight.

Transition shade is “Mourning” by My Pretty Zombie. On the inner and outer parts of the eye I started layering and blending colors. I started with My Pretty Zombie’s “Nymph” and then used “Cocoa Bear” by Makeup Geek, and finally used Makeup Geek’s “Bitten” to darken everything up. The trick with halo eyes is of course to leave the center blank, but always blend and layer in between shades.

In the middle I put down Nyx’s jumbo pencil in “Yogourt” to prime a bit and used elf’s glitter primer on the center of my lid. Once that was tacky I put Lunatick Cosmetic Labs’ ‘Ghouls Gold” on the lid carefully with a flat and dense brush.

milani romance

On the water line I used the Skone Cosmetics lip/eye duo pencil in “Wine” that I got in my Ipsy bag. Feel free to use a brown or something, I just enjoy looking sick. I did the same halo thing on my lower lash line, but I only used “Bitten” and “Cocoa Bear” on the outside and inner parts. I put a teeny bit of glitter primer in the middle and then put Ghoul’s Gold on the blank space. It kinda looks like I’m crying glitter, right? I hope so.

I used my Nyx pearl mania in “white” as a tiny bit of an inner corner highlight. I didn’t go ham like I usually do.

IMG_1582

Brows: Nyx’s Tame and Frame in “Espresso” Nyx’s brow Mascara in ‘Black” and Ofra’s universal brow pencil to give myself some hair looking things in the front.

Liner & Lashes: Physician’s Formula eye booster in ultra black + NYC liquid liner and lashes are Kiss #11. I used Urban Decay’s Perversion mascara to prep my lashes for falsies. I did not put mascara on my lower lash line. I felt that this look looked great without it!

Lips: Lined with Nyx’s “Deep Red” retractable liner and I topped it with Milani’s Amore Lip Creme in “Romance” which is a really bright, blue toned red. I wanted to do a red lip because I felt it pulled out the red and burgundy tones in the eyes.

My necklace is from Rue 21 🙂 I can’t stop wearing it!

Other thoughts: Red is a color that really brings out green eyes and makes them stand out since it’s on the opposite end of the color wheel. With that being said, I know that reds and burgundies are colors that many do not feel comfortable using. I hope that by showing a pretty glam, yet simple, look like this will show that red is an awesome color to work with! It’s one of my favorites to use.

That’s it for today’s Face of the Day post! I hope you all enjoyed this look, and comment if you have any colors or themes you would love to see in my Fall Makeup Look Book! As always, thanks for reading, and I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Lip Monthly August 2015

lip monthly august

Hey lovelies,

Another month, another beauty subscription! Today, I will be going over what I got in my Lip Monthly bag! If you’re new to my blog, Lip Monthly is a monthly beauty subscription that costs $10. Typically everyone receives three lip products and one “makeup mix up,” and on average each bag has been valued at close to $50 lately.

I had to include the little card in the photo this month. I thought it was really pretty! The card stated that this month’s theme is “the end of summer” and the products are supposed to reflect that. Honestly, I’m glad the Summer themed bags are almost over with everyone. I can only handle so many glossy and pink things.

Mirabella Lip Pencil $25– This is a bright orange type of shade. I don’t own many Mirabella things, and this color looks so pretty and swatched very smoothly! It’s very pigmented, though I’m not sure if I can pull off orange. Maybe I just need to open myself up to it more.

City Color Lip Butter $3.99- This lip butter looks pink, but it is sheer. It’s not included in the swatches because there’s not a point. I’ve gotten a lot of lip balms and butters this summer, and I think I’m set for a few years. This one is really cute and I am always happy to get things from City Color in my subscription bags.

So Susan Light Diffuser $18- I’ve gotten quite a few things from So Susan through Lip Monthly, and I have to say that I always love their packaging! I love highlighters, so I know I will use the highlight shade in this. It’s a bit gold, which might not look great, but I’m gonna try it anyway. The bronze shade is cool toned, but has a bit of shimmer in it, but it’s not a lot so I might be able to blend it out and use this as a light contour for everyday use.

Starlooks Matte Lipstick $7- This is in the shade “dragon fruit” which is a pretty neon shade of pink. I dig it. Because this looks more like a lip pencil to me, I might end up using it to line my lips before applying the one bright pink lipstick I own. I think this could also work well for ombre looks if I do an Instagram look or something.It swatched very well, and is very pigmented.

IMG_1536

Left to right: Light Diffuser Contour, Highlight, Mirabella pencil, Starlooks “dragon fruit”

Overall value of the bag: $54.99

I’m pretty happy with this month’s bag. I’m not as excited as I’ve been in previous months, but I am looking forward to trying the light diffuser and orange lipstick. If you get this subscription, let me know your thoughts down below! I would love to chat!

As always, thanks for reading!

New on My Youtube Channel

milani amore lip creme

Hey lovelies,

I just wanted to pop in quickly and let you all know that I do have a couple of new videos on my Youtube channel! So, if you want, make sure to watch them and subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already! Also, I always love and respond to comments.

First video: Review + Swatches of 6 Milani Lip Amore Lip Cremes

This video has been on my channel for about a week now. I swatched 6 out of 8 of the new Lip Amore Lip Cremes, and I swatched them on my lips and in natural light.

IMG_1343 milani amore lip creme

Left is Desire, Right is Crush

IMG_1337(1) milani amore lip creme

Left is Beloved, Right is Embrace

In my opinion, Beloved, Lust, and Desire are must haves. They perform the best for me and last the longest and don’t crumble when I eat anything.

Second Video: Influenster Wellness VoxBox Unboxing

I did get this box for free, but like I mentioned in the video ANYONE can sign up and become an Influenster, and I have more info about it under the video! No, I don’t get points or anything for putting the website there. I just like to share the wealth with everyone. I used Influenster before I started blogging, and it was an awesome way to sometimes save money on new things when I was in a tight financial spot.

That’s it for today’s post! I hope you all enjoy the new videos! I will be filming my August Favorites, an empties video, and another tutorial very soon!

Have a good day, loves.

Wet n Wild Fall 2015 Swatch Party!

IMG_1434

Hey lovelies,

I had another post planned out for Swatch Saturday, but then I stumbled upon these and I honestly just couldn’t wait to share them with you all! It’s no secret that I love Wet n Wild, and I always love their seasonal limited edition collections. I was meandering through Kmart (where I always find my best makeup finds) and I felt my heart quicken at the site of a completely untouched display of the new Fall stuff.

In this collection, there are 4 palettes, 6 (I think) lipsticks, and 6 nail polishes that are all limited edition. The palettes are in the traditional Wet n Wild quintet form, though I’m not the biggest fan of the quintet set up. I liked the way the Summer 2015 collection looked better, if I’m being completely honest here. The price per palette is $3.99.

The lipstick packaging is super cute. The packaging is almost like the usual megalast line, but matte black. MATTE. BLACK. I die. I wish they would make them all matte black. These are $1.99 each. In a nutshell, you could buy this entire line and only have to not go to Starbucks for about 3-4 days…which is possibly what I had to do to be able to buy these. I regret nothing.

I picked up 2 palettes and 4 lipsticks for now.

wet n wild fall 2015

This one is called The Gal-lery Next Door. Very clever. This one caught my eye because the definer shade looks super pretty, and purples are my favorite. I think that purples and plums look amazing on green eyes.

IMG_1436

These are the swatches. Sorry that the base shade is very close to my skin tone. These all swatched nicely. I will say that with these I don’t foresee myself being able to use only this palette. That’s one of my only beefs with these little palettes in general. I feel like I can’t do a completely look with them, personally.

wet n wild fall 2015

This one is called “Don’t be a Poser.” This palette is all shimmers, but the darkness in it just spoke to me on some weird level. I kinda want to pair this one with my Milano palette and do some super grunge looks to summon the colder weather.

IMG_1426

These all swatched nicely, but the “crease” shade did give me a bit of kick up. It’s still probably my favorite shade in this palette. It’s a really lovely dark forest green shade.

Even though I am happy with these, I wish there were more matte shades overall. I know that I am not the only one that likes to use matte shades in the crease and lower lash line. I would have loved to have seen a palette with a true dark matte orange and matte black. Or one with a shimmery champagne mixed with a lot of neutral/warmer matte shades. Maybe I’m alone here, but that’s how I feel about many of these quintet palettes, which could be why I don’t own many of them.

wet n wild fall 2015

Now, time for the lipsticks. These lipsticks are incredible. They swatched so smoothly, and they are so pigmented. I love the darker shades in this line. If you are on a budget, but you want the browns and wines that are trending right now, keep your eyes peeled for this line in your local drugstores.

wet n wild fall 2015

From left to right: coffee buzz, vintage vibe, photobomb, nightcap

My two absolute favorites are Coffee Buzz and Photobomb. Not only is the name of Coffee Buzz perfect, but it’s like a brown with a bit of purple in it, which is really unique! These colors will probably be the among the first to sell out everywhere, so I would not hesitate to pick these up if you want them. The LE Wet n Wild lines do tend to sell out quickly in general.

In all, I’m not head over heels in love with the palettes, but I am head over heels in love with the lipsticks. There are a few reds in this collection as well, but I truly need to use some of the other reds in my collection and not buy anymore. This probably won’t happen, but I’m trying. I am curious to see how close in color Vintage Vibe is to Melt Cosmetics’ “Darkroom.”

Anyway, that’s all the swatches I have for today! Will you be picking up anything from this line? Let me know in the comments section! If I pick anything else up, I will make sure to do another post! If you want to see a look done with anything, please feel free to ask! Or, if you want to see lip swatches of any of the lipsticks done on my twitter, snapchat, or instagram, I can do that as well. I just did quick swatches so that you all can have a good idea of what everything looks like!

Have a good weekend, beauties. As always, thanks for reading!

Face of the Day: Cool Toned Cut Crease

coloured raine soul

Hey lovelies,

I’m back this week with another #fotd post, and I have to admit that this is one of my favorite looks so far! I’m a sucker for cool tones, especially grays. I actually sat down to do a subtle v cut crease shape, and then ended up with a dramatic cut crease that looks a lot like something inspired by Black Swan. Welcome to my life. I go to do a subtle look and end up with wings so large I can fly away from all my problems.

So, if you’re here for details behind this almost fully monochromatic look, then you’re in the right place!

IMG_1388

Base: please don’t judge me, but I have totally fallen head over heels in love with using Nivea’s post shaving balm as primer. I can’t stop using it. Thanks to NikkieTutorials, my curiosity was peaked, and oh my gosh my makeup has been laying on my face like a damn dream. I’ll go over it more in my August favorites video in a few weeks, but that’s my primer today.

Foundation is a mixture of Nars Luminous Weightless foundation mixed with Bourgois healthy mix serum, both in the lightest shades. I highly enjoy this combination, it gives my skin a healthy glow while remaining in tact all day.

Concealer is Nars Creamy Radiant concealer in “Chantilly” set with Physicians Formula correcting powder under my eyes, and my face is set with Laura Geller’s balance and brightening powder in “porcelain.”

IMG_1389

Contour is Lunatick Cosmetic Labs cool contour kit. For those wondering about when these are being re-released…I believe soon. I know they’re releasing a giant contour palette soon, and the packaging is honestly drool worthy if you’re a horror fan like myself.

Blush is Kat Von D’s “Love Song” which is just a really pretty cool toned pink with a hint of shimmer, though the shimmer doesn’t show up on me.

Highlight is Colourpop’s “Hippo.” Are we surprised? It’s my favorite highlighter. Something about that slight lavender glow gets me all kinds of excited. I just want to cover my body in it.

IMG_1390

Brows: My usual…Milani’s brow pomade in dark brown set with Nyx’s black brow mascara, and I use Ofra’s universal brown brow pencil to give myself some little hairs because my brows are a bit wimpy in some areas.

Eyes: Primer is Hard Candy’s eye primer. I’ve been going back to this primer because it’s really cheap and the formula reminds me of the Too Faced one.

The palette I used today was Kat Von D’s Shade + Light Eye palette along with some single shadows. I used Nyx’s single shadow in “SOS” as my transition shade. I then took the dark taupe shade in the Kat Von D palette and mapped out the cut crease. This is a cool trick to do if you’re not a master at cut creases, because I am truly not. I don’t do them often, because I find trying to make them even tedious and a bit frustrating. However, I had a bit of free time to fuss with eye makeup today.

Tape also helps, which is what I also used. I mapped out the shape I wanted and then blended it out with Colourpop’s “Downtown” which is just a really rich deep taupe shade. I then took a little (think teensy baby amount) of black from the Shade Light palette and placed it on the outside corner and blended up to give my eye a bit of dimension.

I then took Nyx’s jumbo eye pencil in milk and put that on my lid and used that to kind of clean up the cut crease. I went over that with Colourpop’s “Swan” which is just a gorgeous white glittery shade with silver sparkles.

Liner is Physicians Formula eye booster pen in ultra black and filled in using NYC’s black liquid liner. This has been my go to liner combination lately.

Lashes are Kiss #11 lashes. I probably could’ve went with a super dramatic lash, but I didn’t want to take away from the rest of the geometric vibe I had going on.

IMG_1386

On the water line i used “Milk” again and outlined the little inner corner “flick” using the black shade in the Kat Von D palette. I then blended that out softly using both “Downtown” and “SOS” I filled the open spot with Urban Decay’s “Polyester Bride” and put a bit of mascara on the lower lash line, but I don’t particularly think this look needed it.

Lips: I lined my lips with Nyx’s 1000 years pencil and filled it in with Coloured Raine’s “Soul.” I have been wanting this color for so long, and I’m so happy it’s mine now. It’s so gorgeous. This formula is amazing as well. It’s moussey like the Stila formula, but it’s comfortable and not tacky and reminds me of how the Jeffree Star liquid lipsticks feel.

Well, that’s about it for the details behind this look! I hope you all enjoyed it! I had fun creating this one, and I want to do more cut creases. I’m going to be making a list of fall looks to put on my blog and my youtube channel, so if you have any requests, please send them my way! You all know I love dramatic looks 😉

I hope you’re all having wonderful days!

Target Beauty Box Unboxing

target beauty box

Hey lovelies,

It’s Saturday! Anyone have any awesome plans for the weekend? Personally, I’ll probably be relaxing (when I can) and catching up on some reading. I might add a glass (or 2) of wine here and there. I know that usually on Saturdays I do swatches, but today I’m going to do an unboxing because I have several subscription posts coming up soon, so I might as well add this one into the mix!

If you’re unfamiliar with the Target beauty box, it’s a beauty box that has no strings attached to it, and they are typically between $5-7 with free shipping. If you have a Target debit card, you can get an extra 5% off! These beauty boxes always sell out super quickly. Seriously, if you see a blogger announce that there is a new one live on Target.com, don’t hesitate. Put it in your cart and buy it.

I have never been disappointed in any of these boxes. They are typically higher value, and this one was no different. The overall value of this box is $35, and I only paid $7 for it, shipping and all.

This is what I received in my box, and I am so excited! Some of these things are new on the market, and some are already staples in my beauty routine. So, if you’re interested in what I got and my thoughts, just keep reading.

Clairol Hair Food Moisturizing Mask $11.99 This is a full sized item! I rarely get full sized hair products in any beauty subscription, so I was really happy about this one! I actually just ran out of my usual deep conditioner, so now I have a new one to try. I did smell this one already, and it smells heavenly! I use hair masks quite often because I have color treated hair, so I’m already itching to try this one out.

Fekkai Pre-Soleil Hair Radiance Spray: Another hair sample, but I’m fine with it. I actually love Fekkai hair products, and they’re a wee bit pricey, so I really enjoy the deluxe sample sized things Target sends out in their beauty boxes. This is a spray that is supposed to be used before you go out into the sun to help protect it and give it shine. This product does seem to have a bit of oil and shine in it, so if you have fine hair, you might want to put this in your hands rather than just spraying it on.

Olay Active Botanicals Day Lotion and Toner: Normally, I don’t enjoy tiny skin care related samples. However, this line from Olay is brand new, and it’s intrigued me. Both these samples have snow mushroom in them, which is supposed to draw out impurities in the skin. I’m curious to see if these will be awesome, and I may look into buying the full size of the moisturizer if it works on my dry skin.

Covergirl Super Sizer Mascara: This is another full sized item, and one that I already use very often! I love this mascara. The wand is very thin and reminiscent of the Benefit Roller lash mascara, and this formula actually lengthens and volumizes my poor wimpy lashes.

Crest 3D white 1 hour express whitening strip: This is another thing that is a staple in my routine. Well, about twice a year. If you haven’t noticed, I am am an avid coffee enthusiast (a better way of saying caffeine addict) and coffee is delicious and stains the teeth. So, I do turn to whitening strips every now and then to take away the stains. I have not tried the one hour express strips though, and I am excited to see if these truly do whiten teeth in an hour.

Overall, I’m ecstatic about this beauty box and I cant wait to start trying things out. If there’s anything that you would like to see a separate review on, please let me know! Usually, when I try things out in these subscriptions I will mention my favorite ones in my monthly favorites videos on Youtube.

Did any of you pick up the Target beauty box this time? What are your thoughts? Chat with me in the comments about it, or about anything!

Have a good day, lovelies.
