Tired shopping is a thing, I may or may not have bought an annual subscription to VeganCuts Beauty Box one night while being sleep deprived, overworked, and stressed out. Let's just say that I did, and I got my first box and wanna show you the goodies because it was a good box!
If we've done our math correctly, this box is valued at $132. Although I am gonna say, I'm hard pressed to believe a blending brush for eyeshadow would cost $29. But, that's neither here nor there. Shall we proceed?
Remember, this is just a reveal. I'll do a reviews later, fear not. This bronzer looks like a good shader light-medium skin tones. It's semi-matte, so there's some shimmer in there, due to the mica. Personally, I'm not fan of shimmer bronzers, but I am a fan of bronzers, so I'll use it regardless. This is only like the 5th bronzer I presently have lol. Depending on the darkness, I think it could be a great eye shadow too. I love to multipurpose my products!
This shade doesn't look pretty, but it's actually really pretty. I've already worn it, but forgot to take a picture, because I'm a dumb dumb, so the review will come later. I really love what Thrive represents: for every purchase, Thrive donates a product to a woman "thriving" through cancer or domestic violence. That's a cause I can get behind. I'm going to check out more of their products too, specifically for that reason. I love anything with a purpose and a good cause.
I've used Emani's eye products before, like eye shadows, but never their mascara. Granted, I have 3 mascaras already, this is my 4th, but I'll try this one before I use my other ones, after I finish my current tube. Mascara makes me nervous because of my ultra sensitive eyes and eyelids, so I'm hoping this one won't cause any reactions like others have in the past.
This palette has a lot of neutral shades, which I love, a little shimmer (I feel like it could use some more but that's my personal opinion), and I think it would look nice on all skin tones. Speaking of, I do feel like there's a little too much skin toned colors in this palette, but again, that's just me. I do thing it's really pretty though, and I'm looking forward to trying it out.
Seriously, there's no way this basic eyeshadow brush is $29. I'm sorry I can't get passed that! I always appreciate another eyeshadow brush though, since I wear eyeshadow pretty frequently considering I have entirely too much of it. I'm not a fan of white bristles, but that's just personal preference. I think white bristles do help to show that you've gotten the color out adequately before switching shades, so that's a plus. I think it's just so perfectly white, I don't want to mess it up by using any other shade than white on it lol.
So there you have! Overall, pretty great box. I didn't think I'd get this box because of when I purchased the subscription, I thought I would get the summer box. But, I'm pretty happy with it. It's well rounded, and that I like. Reviews coming soon!
