This month’s theme is Wild Flower. To be honest, I do not see the correlation between the items and the theme. Nonetheless, I am very pleased with the items I received.
Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette, MSRP $35 USD
First Impression: In my first time trying these shadows, I thought they blended well and were nicely pigmented. Even the shimmer shades went vibrantly using just a dry brush. I am really happy about this palette. The autumn, cool-tones are going to be right on trend, and I am looking forward creating a ton of looks with this.
Laura Geller Baked Blush-N-Brighten in Tropic Hues, MSRP $28
FI: Super pigmented with a natural, non-glittery glow. This blush will work well over the more matte foundation look that I will be going for this fall to add a healthy glow to the cheeks. The color is really beautiful and great for everyday on deeper skin.
Alamar Cosmetics Ojitos Brush Set, MSRP $18
FI: My favorite two brushes of the set are the tight liner and the flat painter brush. The blending brush is okay, but the bristles are a little longer than my preferred style of brush. However, it does do a good job of diffusing color in larger areas.
Lorac Pro Liquid Lipstick in Black Cherry, MSRP $19
FI: Long-lasting and comfortable, but don’t smile. The color goes on smoothly, and dries down nicely. I thought I really liked it, but then I smiled, and there was a giant crack in the color down the center of my bottom lip. I tried reapplying, but still had the same issue. The color lasted for hours through a smoothie (no straw) and did not transfer, but I would have to try it with a liner underneath or something to see if I can get it to not have that cracked effect.
Butter London Stroke of Wow Roll On Liner in Pitch Black, MSRP $19
FI: There is a slight learning curve, but the innovative roller wheel applicator helps create precise wings. The black ink is a rich satin-finish black, and it stayed on all day. So far, so good.
Was this month’s box worth the $21? Absolutely, at a value of $119, I can definitely see myself getting use out of all of these products. So, in the end I feel like I got $99 worth of free beauty products. Not bad!
In next month’s unboxing I plan to do a follow-up on these products in addition to my first impressions on October’s box. So stay tuned!
Thanks for stopping by!
