July Beauteque BB Bag Review

Beauteque is a new beauty subscription service that recently launched. They hosted a giveaway prior to their launch and chose one winner from three social media platforms, Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook! I won their Instagram giveaway!

Each winner was sent a beauty bag full of goodies! Each Beauteque Beauty Bag is $22 plus shipping. Beauteque features many international brands and each subscriber is given the ability to choose which particular product they want in their bags. For example, Beauteque lists out numerous eyeshadow pigments you can choose from plus a list of different masks each subscriber can choose from!

Each BB Bag comes with an introduction card and this month’s bag came with cute passport book that listed each product and what they do and how to use them. What I really liked was that each list showed all the different products we were able to choose from rather than limiting it to only the products we received in our BB Bag.

Here is what I received in my BB Bag!

Beauteque Mineral Eye Shimmer in Caribbean Coral $10.99

My Beauty Diary Face Masks in Strawberry Yogurt and Arbutin: $1.99 each

We were allowed to choose two face masks in this bag! I haven’t used the Arbutin yet but my mom tried out the Strawberry Yogurt and she loved it! I’m definitely putting in an order for a whole box soon!

image

Beauteque Foundation Brush: $10.50

I love how this brush has a bamboo handle and the bristles are really soft!

image

Holika Holika Dessert Time Pudding Pack in Pineapple: $0.75

I’ve never tried a pudding mask before so I’m definitely curious to see how it works!

image

A’Pieu Shea Hand Lotion in Rose: $8.99

I haven’t used this lotion yet since I have tons of opened bottles I need to finish first but this one smells great!

image

Etude House Drawing Eyebrow Pencil: $7.00

I don’t use brow pencils so I gave it to my mom!

image

This Essie Nail Polish was a bonus item for the first few people who signed up for the BB Bag when it first launched! I wasn’t expecting to get one but was super happy seeing it in my bag! I love nail polish and I love this color!
image

The value of this bag was around $41 and the price is $22 plus shipping! I definitely think it’s a great deal, especially if you like trying new brands and a mix of skincare plus makeup!

I recommend checking out Beauteque’s website! They have amazing deals going on right now with their 21 Days of Summer!

L’oreal Paris New Extraordinaire by Colour Riche Review

Allure kindly sent me a New Extraordinaire by Colour Riche from L’oreal Paris to test and review.

Here is a description of Extraordinaire by Colour Riche from L’Oréal Paris’ website
”Transform lips from ordinary to extraordinary. Color is richer, lip surface is smoother and shine is magnified. Formulated with precious micro-oils and rich color pigments, Extraordinaire provides the ideal balance of color and care for perfect lips. The unique soft-touch applicator allows for a silky-smooth, gliding application.”

Each lip color is valued at $9.99 and I was asked to choose one of three shades. I decided to be bold and choose Ruby Opera. 

image

I hardly ever wear red lips so I was definitely afraid to try it out! Here is a swatch of Ruby Opera!

image

This was really easy to apply and I liked the wand applicator, I thought it was different and softer compared to other applicators I’ve used. This shade took some getting used to but I did like it way more than I expected. I received compliments and was often told the color looked great on me! 

image

I also liked how smooth this lip color felt! I expected it to feel sticky but it wasn’t at all. I’m also in love with how great the color pigmented! A couple of things I did like were that it wasn’t long-lasting for me and I was told this would moisturize my lips but it didn’t. 

Overall, I’m pleased with this lip color! If you’re interested in checking out other shades just click here

Uni Voxbox Review

Super excited for my Uni Voxbox!

For those of you who don’t know, Influenster is a community of consumers and trendsetters that are able to read reviews and share their insight on numerous products. The fun part is that Influenster sends out COMPLIMENTARY packages, called voxboxes, to a select number of members to test and review.

I received this complimentary voxbox in March. This voxbox contained:

  • Red Rose Real Tea Water Enhancer in Blackcurrant Raspberry
  • Acroball Pilot Pen
  • ImPRESS Manicure
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation in Ivory
  • Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons
  • NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia

My favorite items in this voxbox were the Rimmel Foundation, NYC Lipstick, and the Acroball Pen! I loved the other three products too but I wouldn’t go out and purchase them.

Another fun thing about Influenster is that once you review all the products and unlock each brand badge, you’re entered to win some prize packages from each brand! I was lucky and won two prizes in the past week, you can find the emails I received here!

If you’re interested in joining Influenster I can send you an invite! Just message me your email (:
