THe Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm March 2020!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post!

BoxyCharm March 2020!

Now it’s time for my BoxyCharm for this month! This box is $25 a month and you get from prestige all the way to luxury products ranging from ones you find in the store to independent brands. You also get to choose a product every month for this box! Let’s see what I got this month!

Murad Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes: First up is a product from Murad and it’s my choice item! This is the Murad Ultimate Moisture for Eyes which is an eye cream that helps with fine lines and wrinkles and has a blend of hyrolonic acid and algae extracts to moisturize the eye area and great for sensitive skin. When I saw this as a choice item I had to try it since the other item happened to be a curling wand and sorry my hair is already curly so don’t need that. I have had pretty good experiences with Murad since they are well known for being good for sensitive skin and I believe it. I am still using the AHA and BHA scrub in my shower and have used up the Essential C Moisturizer and now get to try this out. This retails for $70!
Hank & Henry Living In Color Pallet: This month there were three shadow pallets and they were the Tarte Tartist ReMix Pallet, the BoxyCharm Hello Charmer Pallet, and this one the Hank & Henry Living In Color Pallet. I’ve heard of this brand and I got the eyeliner in my box a few months back but didn’t like it due to how the chisel tip was not working out for me but glad to get this pallet! This is a nine pan pallet that is inspired by both the 90s and 2000s and it can be worn on their own. I have to see what shades are in this pallet to see if I want to do certain looks with it. This retails for $27.
Pharmacy Very Cherry Cleansing Balm: Next is a product from Pharmacy and it’s their Very Cherry Cleansing Balm. I have used the Green Clean and got that as add-ons with my Ipsy and this time I got this version which is the cherry one in this subscription. Like the Green Clean it takes and melts makeup off leaving skin silky smooth and moisturized. When I tried the Green Clean my second time I noticed how my eyes stung a little bit which I am hoping this doesn’t happen with this one so I have to see how it goes! Glad to get another makeup cleansing item so I won’t have to stock up so soon! This item retails for $34!
Vintage by. Jessica Libersteind in Pink Sequin: Next is a lip gloss from a brand I’ve never heard of and it’s Vintage by Jessica Libersteind and the lip gloss is in Pink Sequin. This gloss is a sheer and glittery formula that you can wear alone or on top of other lip products. I prefer using a sheer lip gloss over other colors to give it a pop since my lips are a bit on the natural side and have to see how well it pairs with lipstick or liquid lipstick. This item retails for $25.
Project Beauty Haircut Almond Honey Intense Hair Yogurt Hair Mask: Final item is a hair mask from Project Beauty! I haven’t gotten a hair mask in so long since I’ve stopped using them especially when at certain times of the year I tend to get dandruff scabs even when the spring starts and have to start using the dandruff shampoo again. Which I have to do that right now and so far it’s doing okay. Anyways, this is another brand I’ve never heard of and this makes is made with yogurt protein, probiotics, kinwa, botanical and shea butters to help repair the hair. I will definitely use this since I do sometimes feel a little bit of dryness and can help strengthen my hair a bit. This retails for $10 which is not too bad!

Well guys that is it for this box! This was a pretty good box and glad I didn’t get anything from KVD Vegan Beauty. I know she is no longer with her brand but it still has her initials and you know my stance towards her lip products which are too drying for my liking. I’m glad to try out a new hair mask, a new lip gloss, the cherry version of Pharmacy’s cleansing balm, and of course something new from Murad which I do have some eye creams I am going through right now. I’m also glad to try another thing from Hank & Henry too since the eyeliner was not my favorite so I will definitely give them a chance with this pallet. I did select my choice for April and can’t wait to see what they give me for that since it’s an eye shadow pallet from Zoava and never tried them before. I hope BoxyCharm also gives me the card next month since I contacted them about that and no answer. I may have to bug them on Instagram or Facebook. Next will be GB Plus which I’m mad about and had to contact Ipsy about it too, just stay tuned guys!

Also, in case anyone has been following Nerdy SHique Transmissions, I haven’t done an episode last week due to what had happened to Omni Fandom Expo so I will be doing another and will give my thoughts on Corona Virus myself since now we are going into lock down too at work. Stay tuned for that episode.

The Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag Plus February 2020!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another subscription post!

Ipsy Glam Bag Plus February 2020!

I got my GB Plus the same day as my BoxyCharm and figured to do this one next and save the Glam Bag for last since that came in the next day. This is the second tier in Ipsy where it costs $25 a month and you get more full size items from more high end and luxury brands in beauty and skin care. You also can get some brush sets and tools in this one too. I prefer this one out of the higher tiers because I am able to use items that keep my makeup collection in check on both sides and can try something new whether it’s from a brand I heard of or not. Let’s see what I got!

Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30: Damn that was a long name! Come on brands make it simple with your product names. I don’t get why they have to be this long. Anyways! I have tried out Murad with their AHA BHA Expholiator and loved it and on my second tube that I got through the major holiday box I bought back in last November of so many items including that and with this I am kind of worried. You will see why. This item is a day moisturizer but is also a moisturizer with SPF in it it’s light and perfect for all skin types. I am afraid of the SPF in this product because I tend to break out from anything containing this ingredient. Yes, I know I live in Florida but my skin is sensitive. My very first item I ever tried with this ingredient was when I got my very first Ipsy Glam Bag and it had a Paula’s Choice product with SPF and my skin couldn’t take it and I broke out, even broke out when I got a IT Cosmetics CC Cream and used it in Miami and my skin broke out because of the SPF in that one too. I know skin care has come a long way and Murad is known for being friendly to people with sensitive skin so I will take a try at this once I get through my other moisturizers since I’m almost done with one of them due to accidentally dropping it and got it all over my smock and have one other. So, will have to see how this goes but will mark I don’t like items with SPF in it. This item does retail for $65!
Laruce Essentials Brush Set: Next is my choice item and that is from Laruce and it’s their Essentials Brush Set. I chose this because I kind of felt like I was going to get one of the other products in this month’s box and I do love brushes. This is a five brush set that are made with synthetic bristles and are vegan and cruelty free. This set comes with a contour brush, a blush brush, and three eye brushes which is pretty good and the handles are different from the ones I am used to. This set retails for $154.
Dominique Cosmetics Sweater Weather Pallet: Next is Dominique Cosmetics and it’s the Sweater Weather Pallet! I had a feeling I was going to get this pallet and glad I didn’t choose it. This pallet has six neutral shadows which have pinks, purples, and I think browns which is perfect since I do love to work with these kinds of shades when it comes to some neutral looks. I find it funny in the description how they said that neutrals aren’t just for fall when I do them all year round and everyone else on YouTube also does neutral looks every part of the year. I can’t wait to use this one and this pallet retails for $29.99.
Il Makiage Inkliner in Black: Another eyeliner came and this is also in my work makeup kit! This is a felt tip liner that is smudge proof and lasts up to fourteen hours. I tend to clean my makeup off after I get home from work but knowing my Pharmacy Green Clean can get this off with no problem. I can’t wait to try this though. This does retail for $21.
Avette Daily Squeeze Mask Duo in Grape & Litchi: Final items are sheet masks which made me happy again this month! As you know I love sheet masks and after last month getting six, this month I got four in both Grape and Litchi! These masks are packed with citrus and coconut water which help nourish and hydrate skin after a long night. I did use one of these after coming home from work when I just got my box and well it did kind of sting but it did calm down as I wore it so I think it’s due to being so new and I have to use these even further to see how I like it. I’m so glad to get these in my GB Plus and will be looking forward to any others coming in my box or choose a few! I can’t find a retail price, hold on! Found them online at their official website and they are $4.00 for two! Nice!

Well guys that is it for this post! I will update on the Murad situation once I get to this product since knowing living in a coastal town I do need SPF but at the same time my skin can go haywire so I will have to see how that goes. I am glad I chose the brushes and I did put my eyeliner with my other pen liners I’ve gotten. I wish I got other colors because I did choose the other ones on my quiz. I will use the masks as always and will see how the shadow pallet goes since I did get the Celestial Thunder Pallet in BoxyCharm but haven’t used it yet. I will see how both go! What’s next? My Glam Bag of course!
