For the past month, I’ve been testing out all of the goodies from Beautycon’s Fall Box that was co-curated by the fabulous MakeupShayla and Angel Merino, aka MAC_Daddyy. These two makeup icons put together the most GLAM beauty box yet – with 11 of their must-have items for fall. This box alone is worth over $100 and is full of products from top-notch beauty brands.
This box did not disappoint. I dig every single item that was sent to me! Below, I’ve listed every item that was in my box along with my thoughts about the item and a link so you can check it out for yourself.
Love this highlighter pencil! I received their #2 pencil which has a matte, nude color on one end and a shiny, gold color on the other. You can use the nude color alone as a subtle, daytime/work appropriate highlight under your brow. Add the shiny, gold color on top of the nude for a brighter, glowier effect. You don’t have to stop at your brows with this product! Use the gold side to create a strobe effect on your face – running it across (and blending) your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and in a c-shape from your temples to just above the arch of your brow. Gotta love multi-purpose products!
This has always been my go-to lash adhesive. Easy to use, and my lashes stay on.
I have to admit, I am not a regular faux eyelash wearer — mostly because I am horrible at putting them on. But, I have always loved the way the look on! These babies in particular are SO gorgeous. They are longer on the outside, creating a cat-eyed effect. Definitely a more ‘glam’ lash! I hadn’t tried this particular brand of lashes before and was pleasantly surprised when I tried these on. The next time I’m on the market for lashes, I’ll be purchasing some from Flutter Lashes.
I didn’t know I wanted this stuff until I tried it. I used this tester up in less than a week. I’ll try anything that says it will make my lips look fuller. Here’s the products description : “A nourishing, conditioning lip treatment with clinically proven Maxi Lip to naturally increase the fullness of your lips while decreasing fine lines. Contains botanical ingredients, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil.” While my lips didn’t increase in size, they did look smoother and felt amazingly smooth.
The perfect way to add some flare to your denim jacket, bomber, or anything else you can put a pin in!
I threw out my old angled brush after testing this one out. The bristles are super soft and dense at the same time. This is a great brush for contouring! Did I mention this brush is 100% vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free? Yep.
This is a great drug-store eyeshadow! The texture is great and the color payoff is just like any name brand option. There is a little fallout when putting the product on a brush but it stays put on the eyelid. Lasts all day!
I’ve tried my fair share of tanning products, including this brand in the past. I typically stick with a foam/gel type product so I was interested how their lotion would work. As with any at-home tanning products, make sure you wear gloves when applying and put regular lotion (or Vaseline) on knees, elbows, wrists, and ankles to prevent staining. There is an instant pay-off with this lotion since there is a bronzer in it and a little goes a long way. The bronzer also helps with knowing where you’ve already applied the lotion. I like the color it provides – it’s a nice golden, brown color. Another perk, there’s no funky smell!
I hadn’t heard of this brand until this box showed up. After trying out this liquid lipstick, I am a total fan! It lasts until you take it off and it doesn’t dry out. What else can you ask for in a liquid lipstick?!
I do not use face wipes to remove makeup from my face (HELLO breakout city). However, I always have them in stock to remove makeup from my hands or to touch up my winged eye-liner. These wipes were soft, cleaned up makeup in a cinch, and didn’t leave any sort of residue or film.
These were such a cute treat to include in the box! My daughter instantly thought they were hers (don’t worry – I shared) and they were just as delicious as they were cute. I’ll definitely be looking into Sugarfina for goodies to gift to my friends and family for the upcoming holidays!
