Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm May 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with this!

BoxyCharm May 2020!

My last box for the month and that is BoxyCharm! Best saved for last and this box is $25 a month and you get five full-size products from prestige to luxury and they range from skin care to makeup to lifestyle. Let’s see what I got this month!

ELEMIS Dynamic Resurfacing Pads: First is my choice item for this month and it’s from ELEMIS! I have been enjoying this brand so far and when I saw these I had to get these to try out. These pads have the tri-enzyme formulation with lactic acids and probiotics to help smooth the skin to reveal a luminous complexion. This sounds like the First Aid Beauty ones and I like those since I got the travel size in this box which I bought and then when 21 Days of Beauty came I bought two of the full-size pack which this is what I got this product in which is around the same size of the First Aid ones. These are pricier than those which the retail price is $59. Okay, this box is paid!
Studio MakeUp Eyes Ease to Wear Pallet: Next is an eye shadow pallet from Studio MakeUp. I remembered when I was not subscribed for two years and this brand was in the box and wanted to try them and finally get to since I got back in last year. This shadow has shades that compliment every skin tone and has a creamy texture to them and gives day to night looks with one swipe and easy blendibility. I will have to see with this pallet since I’ve seen some shadow pallets where I have to dip in more than once so I will see what happens. Plus, this pallet smells really good, it reminds me of the scent of Tarte shadows. This pallet retails for $35.
Pretty Vulgar I Am Caged Shadow Primer: Next is an item from Pretty Vulgar and that is their eye shadow primer. I saw this tube and was wondering what it was and glad that it was this! This is a lightweight and blendable formula that helps smooth lids and make shadows pop. I can’t wait to try this product out because I have been switching out eye shadow primers and glad I get to try this one while I’m doing that. This retails for $22.
Appeal Ultra Crème Liquid Lipstick: Next is a liquid lipstick from Appeal Cosmetics. I thought this was a mascara so I have to fish it out of my giant Caboodle. I do love liquid lipsticks and glad to try this item out from Appeal. This is a luxurious and creamy lipstick with a satin sheen, also only one coat is needed. I will have to see how that goes because the Tarte Sugar Rush lipstick claimed the same thing but did have to dip in another time. I have to see how this works out since there are formulas that can be drying and uncomfortable while other ones are very comfortable, stay tuned for my Round up Review! This retails for $21!
Tarte Magic Micellar MakeUp Remover and Cleanser: Final product is from Tarte Cosmetics and it’s their Magic Micellar MakeUp Remover. I have been getting back into cleansing waters where I use them after using my makeup wipe to make sure everything gets off my face since there are times where I have mascara sticking behind on my lashes and that can be annoying. Let’s see what this says! This item removes the hardest to remove makeup, even waterproof, and excess oils without stripping the skin. Can’t wait to try this out! This retails for $18.

Okay, this month was a really good month for BoxyCharm! I got items I would use and get to try out since I have enjoyed some of these brands already. ELEMIS already had my choice with the facial pads since I wanted to try more items by them but their prices are a bit on the high side so glad to try this when I pay for the box. I have been enjoying the items from Tarte which I’m glad to get a Micellar water to try out and an eye primer from Pretty Vulgar on top of it. I get to try out more Appeal and finally try out Studio MakeUp! All in all a really good month! Can’t wait to see what June brings since there are possible products to come! Can’t wait! I do have a tag post coming up so stay tuned!

Subscription Satelite: Ipsy Glam Bag May 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post!

Ipsy Glam Bag May 2020

It’s that time again and it’s time for Ipsy! I got my Glam Bag and GB Plus early this month and still waiting for my BoxyCharm to arrive. Anyways, Ipsy GB is $12 a month and you get sample to deluxe to full size items from skin care to beauty tools to makeup. You get a range from indie brands all the way to luxury brands! Let’s see what I got!

SL Miss Glam SS57 Brush: First up is a brush from SL Miss Glam. I am glad I finally got a product from this brand in my Glam Bag and I love these brushes! This is a gorgeous brush and this can be used for blending or in the crease. These brushes are made with synthetic bristles and a plastic handle. These handles are pretty weighted and the bristles are really soft. I’ve purchased sets from Ipsy from this brand and they are great face and eye brushes. This brush retails for $18.50.
Nails Incorporated Nail Polish in Camilia Drive: Next is another nail polish and from Nails incorporated this time! I’ve gotten polishes from this brand in this bag for months and it’s a pretty good company but my nails do get wrecked easily due to my typing and washing. This shade is a deep raspberry and glad to get this since I do like purple shades since this is a red violet. Right now I’m trying out press on for my first time, I know “GASP!” but I will try this polish after letting my nails breathe when I finish the week with these nails. I think this polish retails around $15.
Space Case Eye Shadow in Intense Stargasm: Next is an eye shadow from Space Case Cosmetics. Since I already love these guys I do enjoy their formula, especially the shadows which are very soft and do have a bit of a cream-like feel to them. This shade is a silvery shade and glad to try out this one since I almost bought this when I first got into them. This item retails for $9.
Way of Will Hand & Body Lotion in Sweet Orange & & EEleni: Next is a hand and body lotion from Way of Will. I never heard of these guys until this bag which I do love trying new brands I never heard of. This lotion contains shea butter, cacao seed butter, and avocado oil, and almond oil, also orange oil for the scent. Plus it is great for using after the gym because it gets rid of bacteria and the It does claim the Elemis Essential Oil helps to boost circulation and acts as an antiseptic. I did start using this and what I have an issue with is getting the product out. Plus it is best to use it on hands due to the small size you get. This retails for $28.
Tarte Sea Jelly Glaze Anytime Lip Mask in Strawberry: Final item is my choice this month and wishing it wasn’t due to the size of it. It’s from Tarte and it’s their Sea Day Anytime Lip Mask and which I wished it was in a pot after seeing how tiny it was. I don’t get why brands have to make their samples so tiny for Ipsy when they can just make a deluxe size in a pot than a tube. You can apply this as thin product during the day or thick at night for an all-night treatment. This retails for $14 which I should just get it from them for a bigger size.

That is it guys for this month’s bag which was meh! I wished the lotion was a squeeze bottle which is hard to do and the Tarte item was tiny. I did like the nail polish which I can’t wait to try and of course glad that I got the eye shadow from Space Case. I am also glad for the SL Miss Glam Brush which I am a fan of their brushes! I am not sure if I want to do Choice for June because the items in GB Plus are better for that but I will see what they offer before I choose Surprise Me! Speaking of GB Plus, I will have that up after I do the new book review on the next Oh Hell No Series from Mimi Jean Pamfiloff. So stay tuned!
