Favourites from the Boxes, January 2018

I wanted to share some items from my subscription boxes that I have been enjoying lately. It’s always fun to discover some great items!

Luxie Brushes 221T and 227T

I enjoy the quad of brushes received but these two are my favourites of the bunch. The Blender Brush (227T) is great because it’s fluffy and flat so it’s great for blending in the crease. The style is similar to the Sigma E25/MAC 217 although it’s a lot fluffier. I like that I can use it as a shader brush or a blending brush.

I really enjoy the flat definer brush (221T) for applying shadow to my upper and lower lash line. It’s very flat so it creates a precise line.

The best part about both these brushes is that the handles are small. This makes them easier for me to hold and travel with. I really love them and use them all the time!

I enjoy using the matte side for those rare occasions that I set my undereye but I’ve included this duo in my favourites because of the glow side.

This gives just a hint of luminosity with fine glitter that my skin looks dewy when I apply it all over. Another thing I will do if I don’t apply this all over my face is to swipe it on the tops of my cheeks before I add highlighter just to give it that extra oomph.

This gives decent coverage under the eyes and I enjoy mixing it with other concealers. I also love putting this on my lid before primer to cancel out the darkness and veins around my eyes and give me a base for my eyeshadows.

It’s creamy and blends nicely around the eyes. I had originally likened it to the Becca under eye concealer but this one is not as sticky or shiny. I actually like this formula way better in comparison. My only drawback is that this is in a jar but I understand that this type of formula would not work in a tube.

Have you tried any of the items I’ve listed above? What are your thoughts?

Lots of Love,
