Have you seen this month’s Boxycharm? Once I opened mine up, I immediately gravitated towards the 3-Piece beauty sponge set by PÜR Cosmetics. I can’t remember the last time I tried any sponge that wasn’t a Beauty Blender so I was excited to put something new to the test. I tried all 3 to see if they had anything different about them but they were all the same and I’m glad since I really enjoyed using them. They are a LOT denser then a Beauty Blender and have a smoother surface which I really enjoyed. The heavy sponge gives off a very cooling effect when dabbing it against your face and best of all, it applies my makeup fabulously.
Then we also got Rodeo Drive Highlighter by Ofra Cosmetics! Like, WHAT?! I never tried any of their highlighters before but had heard amazing things about them and now I see why. First of all, I’ve never known such good formula before and it took this highlighter for me to see that. I still love all my other highlighters for the shades and the glow but this is the smoothest one for an airbrushed look. Best of all, it also happens to smell super expensive, just like if it were Chanel or YSL.
We have another HAIRGURT product in the same scent as the last, Strawberry Banana. This time it’s a shampoo instead of a hair mask, which btw, I didn’t really end up liking. However, I feel like this is going to be different & I can imagine it now. I’m not sure how I feel about the scent yet, it’s sweet and I don’t hate it but it's also not my favorite.
Next we have a Lipgloss by Cargo Cosmetics in the shade Umbria which is a shimmery bronze gold color. I didn’t want to open it and swatch it because I already knew I was giving that product away. I don’t really use that shade often so I rather give this one away to someone who will enjoy this gloss that I’m sure is amazing.
Lastly, we received this 16 Color Pro Concealer Palette by Measurable Difference. The formula is very creamy with light coverage. This palette will suit more medium to deep skin tones and includes some correcting shades for blue undertones. I’ve only swatched a few shades but haven’t really tested it out on my face yet to give a better review. Overall I’m very pleased with this month’s box and was put on to a few new things!
Total value of these products, $117.
