This VeganCuts Winter Makeup Box is lit like a Christmas tree! I liked the mix of products in this box. With a total value of $131, this box really has maximum value for your dollar. I haven't had the chance to try anything but the blush and lipstick yet.
Let's talk about Elate Cosmetics Creme Blush first, since this is one of the products I've used.
The shade is called Love, and it is a really pretty color. The packaging is beautiful. All Elate Cosmetics have beautiful packaging. The burnt wood with the elegant designs are wonderful.
As you can see, the compact is one of those twist ones with a magnetic closure. The color is so pretty, but boy oh boy, was this a disappointment. I so didn't want it to be, I really wanted to love it. There is absolutely next to no pigment with the blush, the texture isn't a cream, it's like a balm, and I tried applying it with my finger, and you can look in the second photo, that when I applied it, it just took my foundation off and transferred it to the blush. As a blush, no bueno. I did try it on top of my balm on my lips, and that added a nice but subtle pop of color. I'm basically using it on my lips just occasionally, but I'm probably going to end up trashing it. I'm so sad to say!
Next, we'll talk about Emani Prismatic Duo Tone Lipstick in Bewitched.
Let me first state, I had no idea how cool this lipstick was. There's two shades, one on each side, and you can use one per lip, switch it up, put some just in the middle for an ombre look... I mean, it's really fun! I used it basically like a regular lipstick, but I'm going to use it differently tomorrow.
I really loved the shade I used, but I would advise using minimal lip balm on top if you do. I need my balm for everything, and it caused it to bleed a little, but not a lot. I know for next time. It's definitely not food or drink proof, but it applies really nicely and is actually pretty moisturizing on its own. I'm a fan of this, plus the packaging is really pretty! I recommend this one!
Next, Inika Long Lash Vegan Mascara.
I love trying new mascaras, so so much. I haven't tried this yet, but I feel like I'm going to love it. I'm almost done my mascara now so then I will be trying this one. I go through eyeliner and mascara like no other. They are my weakness.
Next, Mineral Fusion Stunning Eyeshadow Trio.
Since this is so small, this is in my makeup bag in my backpack that I use daily so that, if I need to fancy up a bit, I can. The colors are all neutral, which is great and compliments any eye color. You can even apply them with your fingertips! Super easy and convenient!
Lastly, Pacifica Crystal Moon Lit Oil.
Now, I know this is for your face, but I also know that lavender does not like my face, but that doesn't mean I won't use it on the rest of my skin! There's some really great ingredients in here, and I'm a fan of multi-purposeful products. Lavender, quartz, and blue tansy.. so many awesome ingredients! I'm going to try this maybe on my feet, maybe my neck and arms.
That's it! I'm looking forward to trying the rest of these products out and reviewing them for you!
