Unboxing Boxycharm, June 2017

Price: $21.00 USD (+$5.00 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 4-5 full-size items.
Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box of full-size makeup, skincare and beauty tools. This month’s theme is Downtown Charm.

**Prices are in USD, and converted to CAD at the end**

A little update; since the Canadian Dollar is always changing against the US Dollar, last month, this month and next month were a bit more expensive when converted to CAD: $34.00/month (compared to $33.00 CAD when I first subscribed in February). Although I love the items, it is a pricey subscription. If you have suggestions for other boxes that ship to Canada (or are Canadian owned boxes) let me know. Also, my Ipsy subscription ended and I don’t plan to renew it anytime soon so if you don’t see any unboxing for that, well now you know why.

So what did I get this month?!

RealHer Eye Shadow Palette I (Nude)
Retail Price: $28.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (9)
Last time I got RealHer products in my box I was really excited mostly because I love what this brand stands for. If you want to see the items and my thoughts, you can do that here. I was pleasantly surprised to see an eye shadow palette in my subscription box.
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (8)The box is thick but it is small enough that you can travel with. I love the rubbery texture of the packaging and silver lettering against the black and that it has a mirror inside. The ingredients are certified cruelty free, natural and vegan.
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (10)
The colours are completely the types that I would wear everyday. I love the mix of mattes and shimmers and for the most part they are really smooth and blend well. The only downside is that some shades are very similar (Proud & Courageous and Creative & Unique). Either way, it’s a palette I’m super happy to receive. Palette II and III can be found here. All are great everyday palettes with slightly different variation in colours.

Biobelle Cosmetics 3 Sheet Masks
Retail Price: $14.97 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (11)
Hurray for more sheet masks! I’m excited that I got 3 in this month’s box! I got #beautysecret which a moisturizing mask (pomegranate & hyaluronic acid), #iwokeuplikethis which enhances glow (wild rose & vitamin C) and #primer to prep the skin before makeup (tee tree oil, rosehip extract & vitamin C). These are all really cute masks although I’m pretty curious about #primer only because I’ve never tried anything like it.

Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder
Retail Price: $26.99 USD, full size
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (5)This powder has glow and lots of sparkle! Not sure how much I’d like it on my cheeks for highlight but it might work all over the lids or even on the body. Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (7)I love that it’s a gold shimmer only because I have very little of that in my collection. You need the tiniest bit to make an impact.
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (6)In the swatch (which is hardly visible thanks to terrible lighting!) I used only a crumb of product. I love the way this is packaged with a sifter that can be closed completely by turning it so that you don’t get powder flying everywhere!

Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Ana
Retail Price: $19.90 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (2)

This is a beautiful raspberry, red colour that isn’t very bright so I can imagine it being perfect for someone like me who isn’t into lipsticks that fall outside of the natural look. I haven’t tested it out but the formula is supposed to be soft and moisturizing on the lips and has a long lasting lipstick effect. I’ve tried other lip products from Ofra that I really liked so I’m guessing I will enjoy this lipstick too!

Luxie Brush Rose Gold Pro Precision Tapered Brush 640
Retail Price: $24.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (3)

Yes! Finally a Luxie Brush in my subscription box! This is a pretty interesting brush. The bristles are very long and flimsy. It can be used to dust away loose powder from eye shadow fallout or apply highlight.
Unboxing Boxycharm June 2017 (4)In the summer I will add a bit of powder on top of my makeup to keep it all in place so it doesn’t melt in the heat and I would actually just use it for that. I love the pink handle and rose gold barrel it really makes the brush feel luxurious but it also is very sturdy and well made.

My Thoughts
All these items are going to get used by me and feel like they fall in line with the Downtown Charm feel (I’m a downtown city girl and it feels like colours I would wear). The palette is so pretty and I can easily put a few looks together with this, the lipstick will add a fun pop of colour and the gold powder will give a bit of glow. I’m really excited for masks and the brush too! Total Value of my box: $113.86 USD ($150.52 CAD)!

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What did you think of the items?

Unboxing Topbox, June 2017

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for the Prive Box.

Topbox was offering three different Cosmetics Magazine Awards Privé Topbox’s, I wished for #3 and got it in the mail! I wish I had taken a screen shot of all the different options because they were really good this month. If you’re interested in reading Cosmetic Magazine Fragrance and Beauty Awards you can here.

Now on to what I got!

Calvin Klein Deep Euphoria Eau de Parfum Roller Ball
Full Size: $92.00 (50 mL), Sample Size: $18.40 (10 mL)
Unboxing_Topbox_June 2017_LBL (2)
I’m not the biggest fan of the original euphoria scent, but I love the sexy musk in the deep euphoria. I usually prefer light clean scents but there is something about this that makes me love it. I’m not good at describing scents but here are the notes for this one:

  • Top – Cascalone
  • Mid – Black magic rose
  • Base – Musk

This is a great scent for a hot summer night out when you might want a something a bit stronger to last you.

Michel Germain Sexual Paris Tendre Pour Homme
Full Size: $79.00 (75 mL), Sample Size: $8.43 (8 mL)Unboxing_Topbox_June 2017_LBL (4)
I appreciate that Topbox included a sample for men in the Prive options, they actually had one exclusively for men which is a great little gift for a significant other or to use in a Father’s Day gift. I do like this scent a lot and thought I could pass this along. It’s in a cool looking spray bottle. Here are some of the notes of this one;

  • Top – Ginger
  • Mid – French Rose
  • Base – Modern Amber

You really get the hint of ginger in this one. I really think it’s a very fun sporty scent that is great for the summer.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate
Full Size: $116.00 (50 mL), Sample Size: $23.20 (10 mL)
Unboxing_Topbox_June 2017_LBL (3)
Anytime this is in a box I get really excited. Yes, I may have so many of these samples now but it’s probably my most loved serum so I will constantly appreciate more little samples because the full size is expensive.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil In O2 Raspberry
Full Size: $25.00 (7 mL), $10.00 (2.8 mL)
Unboxing_Topbox_June 2017_LBL (5)
I’ve heard so many good things about this lip oil so when I saw it was part of this Prive I knew I wanted to give it a try. This is described on the Bay website as a melting, lip-plumping formula which combines the comfort of an oil and the high-shine result of a gloss for radiant, fuller-looking lips.

My Thoughts

Clearly, I’m really happy that I received this Prive Box. I’m really excited to try the lip oil and already loving the parfum. I’ll always appreciate the ability to chose my box with Topbox, it’s a feature not many other subscription boxes offer. Total value of my box; $59.83.

Did you get Topbox this month? What was in your bag?

Summer Morning Routine with Garnier

I’m constantly switching up my routine for morning and evening in hopes that I find the best products for my skin each season and because I simply get tired of using the same thing over and over.

The last few weeks I’ve been testing some items sent to me from Garnier that I’ve worked into my morning routine.

Let’s start with my first step; cleansing. I love cleansers that have citrus scents especially to help wake me up in the morning and the Clearly Brighter Gentle Smoothing Scrub* is really nice for that.
Morning Routine 2017_LBL (9)I don’t usually do exfoliating cleansers everyday because of their rough texture but this is surprisingly really soft and gentle on my skin. The formula is like a gel cleanser with argun nut shell. I find the the shells feel really smooth. Garnier claims that this can be used for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Morning Routine Collage1 It helps to smooth my skin and prep it for my next step which is whatever face spray I have at hand.

Recently, I’ve been using a sample of Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist. This spray is really nice to hydrate my skin and prep it for moisturizer. Morning Routine 2017_LBL (1)It has a beautiful rose scent that I personally like. I also love the mist this creates, it’s very fine but wide so two-three sprites will cover my whole face.

My next step after that is moisturizer. There usually isn’t a moisturizer I don’t like and the Moisture Rescue* is no exception.
Morning Routine 2017_LBL (3)This is simply a great everyday fragrance-free and oil-free moisturizer that feels really light on the skin and absorbs really quickly.
Morning Routine Collage2It has Vitamin C and E and an SPF of 15. I appreciate the SPF, even if in the summer I’d want a bit more, I like that it has any coverage.

My stand out product for the morning is the Ombrelle Ultra Advanced Tinted Lotion with SPF 60*.
Morning Routine 2017_LBL (6)I did try a tinted lotion last year from Clinque which I quite enjoyed for my face but this one from Garnier has a higher SPF. This is non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), water resistant for up to 80 minutes, and hypoallergenic. I also LOVE that this is fragrance free. I really don’t like the smell of sunscreen so I’m glad I don’t have it here. This is a mineral sunscreen which is new to me.
Morning Routinge Collage3Upon further reading I found that unlike most sunscreens mineral sunscreen doesn’t get absorbed into the skin but instead sits on top and reflects the suns rays. I mostly just love this because it feels really nice on the skin and the tint gives me a little bit of coverage. For the summer I move away from foundation so I use mostly BB Creams to add a bit of coverage and then use concealer around my eye area or where I need more coverage. This does the same thing but has a really high SPF so I won’t need to worry if I’m out in the sun all day.

My next steps after this are to add my makeup which I might post since my makeup over the summer is pretty minimal but great for those who like to rock a simpler look like I do!

What’s your morning routine like? What steps do you take?

Lots of Love,
Dal

Bye Bye Empties, May 2017

Before we get too far into June I figured I better get to all my empties for May. I feel like this I finished up a lot of products that I’ve been wanting to finish so I’m really excited to share them now!

Skincare
May Empties 2017_LBL (9)

Let’s start off with Algenist Purifying & Replishing Cleanser which I finished up mid month. I originally reviewed it here and at that time I said I wouldn’t repurchase this. Since then I’ve had a complete change of heart because I grew to love this cleanser because it’s just so  good at removing my makeup and leaving my skin feeling clean. Plus it lasted me so long even with regular, daily use.

I have two little sample products that I finished this month as well.
May Empties 2017_LBL (10)The first is the GlamGlow Thirstycleanse Daily Hydrating Cleanser which I really enjoyed. I used this about 4 times before the sample ran out. It’s not a product I’d use everyday though so I’ll probably not purchase a full size but I would definitely get another sample.
May Empties 2017_LBL (11)The next item is my Dr.Lipp Nipple Balm. I love this balm! I got it in my Birchbox and then did a review of it here. I used this on my lips and cuticles the most but I would also occasionally use it when my legs, hands or face felt a little extra dry as spot treatment. Luckily I purchased a full size from the Birchbox store before they stopped servicing Canada.

Body Care

May Empties 2017_LBL (6)
An item I was really happy to have finish is the St. Ives Fresh Hydration Lotion. I thought I’d really like a spray moisturizer but as someone who needs a little more hydration I realized pretty quickly that I prefer creams instead. I did enjoy this as the weather got warmer because it was really light. I also really loved the smell; super tropical and delicious.

Once I finish up more body washes I have laying around my home I’m heading straight to L’Occitane to pick up more of the Almond Shower Oil. I did a review of this product here and I’m almost finished the Almond Supple Skin Oil as well.

I didn’t finish my PennyLane Pink Grapefruit Deodorant but it’s crumbled so badly that I can’t use it anymore. That was my fault because at first I think I might have pushed up too much product causing it to crack.
May Empties 2017It’s unfortunate because I love this smell. It was strong when I first applied it but it did diminish throughout the day and left me feeling fresh. I have other deodorants I’m using right now but I will probably repurchase this.

Hair Care

May Empties 2017_LBL (3)
Although I have dry hair, I always seem to finish up my shampoos before conditioners. I really enjoy the Dove Shampoo line. It’s really nice for dry, frizzy hair like mine making it really easy to style afterwards. The Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo is definitely one I will be picking up again.

If I could chose a high-end Shampoo and Conditioner it will most likely be Alterna’s Caviar Repair Instant Recovery Duo. This is amazing for hair like mine. I got this with my Sephora points with other items from their line.
May Empties 2017_LBL (4)If I’m leaving my hair to dry naturally I’m likely to use the shampoo and conditioner as well as the Caviar CC Cream. These three together made my hair more manageable. It’s really pricey, so I might be leaving this for Christmas and Birthday ideas 😉

What did you finish up in May?

Lots of Love,
Dal

Unboxing Ipsy Glam Bag, May 2017

Price: $10.00 USD (+$4.95 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 5 (+a cute bag).
Ipsy is a monthly subscription service that introduces customers to new hair and beauty products.20170521_101840

This bag is super cute! I love the clear plastic with ice cream and popsicle print. The bag is a bit larger than my usual bags but one thing I didn’t really like is that the zipper is not sewn on so cleanly, so this is a bit lop-sided.

**Prices in Canadian Dollars**

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Bronzer and Highlighter Duo
Full Size Price: $28.30 (unable to determine sample price)
20170521_101850
This appears to be a really good duo for tan complexions. I haven’t tried it yet but in the pan it appears to be a bit dark. That’s alright though, I can give this to my sister if it doesn’t work for me. Plus I’ve received other highlighters and bronzers in my other boxes recently so I’m not rushing to open this up.

Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette
This is exclusive to Ipsy. I am unable to determine a sample price.
20170521_101912
This little palette is exclusive to Ipsy and I can’t find a comparable palette to get pricing from. Pacifica Cosmetics is cruelty-free and vegan. This was made with natural minerals and coconut water. I think the colours are really beautiful for summer, especially if you wanted to do a sunset eye look which is really on trend.

Peek Beauty Metalimatte in A-Boo
Full Size: $29.64 (I can’t tell if this is full size or not)
20170521_102002
Everywhere I look, even on the Peek website, this looks to be a full size product but it’s super tiny. It’s about as big as my thumb! This peachy-pink cream blush dries matte and powdery. I am so in love with the colour. I can’t wait to try it on.

Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Posh
Full Size: $17.52, this is full size
Unboxing Ipsy

I have a few too many nudes that I didn’t open this guy up. The description is that this is a light nude and is supposed to be super moisturizing. It is infused with Vitamin E to prevent the lips from getting dry which I can appreciate.

Royal & Langnickle Precision Angled Brush
Full Size: $5.38, this is full size
20170521_102032

I feel like Ipsy has got it out for me! Yes, I love Royal & Langnickle brushes but I would LOVE one from another brand. I usually see Luxie brushes on the glam bag page and in other bloggers bags but I have yet to get any of them in my bag! Again, I don’t hate Royal & Langnickle brushes, they are some of my favourite ones right now. I think I would use this brush for under eye concealing.

My Thoughts
This bag is perfect for summer! The products and colours are giving me hot days drinking lemonade on a beautiful patio vibe. I am excited for the eyeshadow palette and blush for sure! I didn’t want to give a total value this month because I’m not sure about the sample size of most of the items. Either way, it’s a great value to me!

Did you get Ipsy this month? What was in your bag?

Unboxing Topbox, May 2017

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

I received my box maybe a week and a half  ago but I never got around to opening it. I did open it over the weekend finally!

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for the surprise box.

**Prices in Canadian Dollars**

Delectable Hand Cream in Vanilla & Cream
Full Size: $12.00 (118 mL), Sample Size: $6.10 (60 mL)
Unbox Topbox May 2017_LBL (2)
OK Topbox, I think we need to give these creams a bit of a break! I think in the last 6 months every other month I’ve received an item from Cake Beauty! I like Cake Beauty, but I’d love to discover other brands. That said, this smells delicious and I really like the formula.

Pur-Lisse Sheet Mask
One Sheet: $8.00
Unbox Topbox May 2017_LBL (5)
I usually get my face masks from The Face Shop because they are so cheap so I like getting ones that are bit more expensive than those in my boxes. The Blue Lotus + Seaweed reads to be intensely moisturizing! I can’t wait to have a relaxing evening and try this out.

China Glaze Nail Lacquer
Full Size: $14.00 (10 mL)
Unbox Topbox May 2017_LBL (3)
Somehow I put this away and then lost it so I’m not sure the colour name of this baby pink name! As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I don’t wear nail polish on my fingers but I would totally rock this colour on my toes…once I find it….

Pureology Shampoo & Conditioner
Full Size: $40.00 (500 mL) for both, Sample Size: $8.00 (100 mL) for both
Unbox Topbox May 2017_LBL (4)I love the shampoo and conditioner set especially since this is hydrating. I can never complain about these because they are so perfect for throwing into an overnight bag. I never like the shampoo and conditioners in hotels so I love being able to carry my own.

BONUS! Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen
Unbox Topbox May 2017_LBL (6)
I’m pretty excited about the whitening pen. I’m very particular about my toothbrush so I only use one or two types. This does say that it expires June 2017 which is weird to me but I think Topbox offered this in one of their mega boxes and these must have been left over. Anyways I’m sure it’ll still last me another month or two.

My Thoughts
Except for the hand cream I’m pretty happy with the items in this bag! I am looking forward to using the sheet mask and taking the shampoo & conditioner with me on my next trip! Total Value of my bag: $36.10

Did you get Topbox this month? What was in your bag?

April Shopping; Tarte Cosmetics & Beauty Boutique

HAPPY VICTORIA DAY to my fellow Canadians!

Victoria_Day_play

I hadn’t planned on putting up a post when I went shopping at Tarte or Beauty Boutique but after posting my Sephora Spring VIB Sale Haul I figured I would quickly do this post should I do reviews on any of the products later on.

 Tarte Costmetics Haul
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (2)

In the beginning of April Tarte held a friends and family sale where all the products where 30% off (including items on sale).

Ready Set Hydrate
I won’t let a new facial mist pass me by so picked this up. It’s got a great mist and smells like cucumbers!
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (15)Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation

I read that this was a full coverage hydrating foundation so I was interested in trying it. I thought the dropper was a cute idea until I actually try to drop this on my face and failed, LOL. Now I just put 2-3 drops on the back of my hand and apply it using my beauty blender.
HaulRainforest of the Sea Volume II
While I was shopping I noticed this palette was already reduced to $30 CAD from it’s regular price of $47 CAD and I got an extra 30% off on top of that! I have palettes with similiar colours but I was drawn to the deep green (far left in the picture) and the gold (second from the top going clockwise). This recently went back to full price so I lucked out.

Color Splash Lipstick in Set Sail
SOOOOOO….I’ve got a few lipsticks now in this colour. I seem to really gravitate towards dark nudes but this one doubles as a balm because it’s super hydrating plus the packaging is so beautiful!
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (14)Limited Edition Tartiest Quick-Dry Matte Lip Paint in Festival
Yes, this is from the unicorn collection that Tarte released. I wore this quite a bit when I first got it. It’s a beautiful mauve nude that dries super matte and transfer proof. My only issue is that this is super drying on the lips so I couldn’t wear it for too long. It also rubs off too easily and I got tried or constantly re-applying it.

Beauty Boutique by Shoppers Haul

Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (11)I love whenever Beauty Boutique offers 20X the points on $50 or more. I unfortunately did shopping before they held their spend their points event so I didn’t take advantage of that!
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (7)Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Palette in Ablaze
When I saw Beauty Boutique had this palette back in stock I immediately got it. This is my third Cover Shot eye palette. I don’t usually like Smashbox palettes. I have the Full Exposure palette which I didn’t really like. These little palettes however are quite impressive. I will be doing a full review of them in a few weeks so look out for that.
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (8)Artdeco Crease Brush
I’ve never tried this brand before but so far this brush is great. It’s not crazy soft but it does blend out my crease nicely. I also really like that is a bit more flat on one side which allows me to to get into my crease easily or I can use it like shader brush to distribute colour all over the lid. It reminds me of the Sigma E25 blending brush.
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (13)Marcelle Liquid Eyeliner Pen
Online this looked to have a really precise tip so I wanted to pick it up. I have tried other makeup from Marcelle that I think is pretty good so I have wanted to try more of their items.
Tarte_BeautyBoutique_Haul_April (9)Above are the samples I got with my order! Beauty Boutique offers 3 samples with every order similar to Sephora but at the time I was shopping most of their samples were deluxe sizes. I got a 4th  sample because they were offering Shisedo Ultimate Concentrate with every order as well (I have soo many of these little Shiseido samples I’ll never have to buy one LOL!).

Look for review posts soon!

Have you been doing any makeup shopping lately? What’s on your wishlist?

ALSO! My giveaway closes tonight! Don’t forget to enter!!

Lots of Love,
Dal

Unboxing Boxycharm, May 2017

Price: $21.00 USD (+$5.00 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 4-5 full-size items.
Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box of full-size makeup, skincare and beauty tools. This month’s theme is Makeup is Art.

IBY Beauty Highlight and Countour Palette
Retail Price: $40.00 US
20170513_115942

I never really got into the highlight and contour craze although I did try it out on the blog at one time. If you want to read that post you can here. I’m going to save this palette because I can probably use the lighter shades to set my makeup and the darker shades in lieu of bronzer. I do like the shades here and the thin and sleek packaging.

Crown Pro Round Contour Brush
Retail Price: $24.99 US|
Collage_Fotor

Although I do appreciate the attempt to add a tool that can be used with the palette that was sent in this box I really think this brush is just a bit big on my face to use for contouring. As you might have seen in my previous posts I really love these types of brushes for foundation so I’ll use it for that instead. This brush is super soft and nicely packed. It really puts the ones I’ve been picking up from Amazon to shame! I also love that this came with a cover to protect the brush head.

The BrowGal Convertible Brow
Retail Price: $35.00 US
20170513_104800

I swear of heard of BrowGal before, I wonder if I’ve received any of their products in other boxes. I used to only use brow powders when I first got into doing my eyebrows so I’m actually looking forward to using this. I like that you can add a little water to this too to give it more of a pomade texture.  I also like that Boxycharm included the The BrowGal Brow Brush, this one is $14.00 US. I always love having extra brow brushes and mascara wands laying around to use on my brows.

Temptu Liquid Glow 
Retail Price: $29.50 US
Collage_Fotor2

Oh I love this pearl highlighter! This was made in collaboration with Boxycharm and the highlighter can be used all over the face for luminous complexion or just on the high points of the face. You are supposed to apply this with your fingers. I’ve actually been using my liquid highlighters all over the face and then dotting concealer where I need it to give me a more dewy, vibrant look for the spring. Highlighter is a hard product for me to finish up because you only need a little but this technique lately is making them multi-purposeful.

My Thoughts
This month feels like we are covering the basics which include contouring, highlighting the face and sculpting the brows. I love that Boxycharm included tools that they hoped could be used with the products they sent. Very useful for someone who may not have a large collection of brushes. I’m REALLY happy with everything I received! Total Value of this month’s box: $143.49 US or $196.79 CAD!! WOW!

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What did you think of the items?

Lots of Love,
Dal
