REINA DEL CARIBE
The theme for this months box is Caribbean Queen.
Esta caja y este tema absolutamente son mis favoritos en los cuatro años que estado suscrita!!
In the box were the following.
ALAMAR – Reina Del Caribe
This eyeshadow palette has 4 shimmer shades, 2 mattes & 2 shades that have a slight glittery sheen. Inspired by Cuban culture, each shade has a Latino name. La Costa is a beautiful champagney shimmer, perfecto to highlight the inner corner & brow bone. Pero tambien se ve espectacular en todo el párpado. El Malecon is a green shimmer shade, this green reminds me of avocados, yumm lol. Varadero is a stunning shimmer deep blue, Celia is a more turquoise-ish blue shimmer shade. The blue of Celia reminds of the water in el caribe, BEAUTIFUL! Coco-Taxi is a beautiful peachy yellow & Tropico is a terra-cotta undertoned orange shade. These 2 are my favorite shades in the palette, they scream VERANO! The last 2 shades are Guantanamera, a matte brick red & Cafecito, which is a rich matte brown. This palette is STUNNING, the shadows are buttery smooth, blend like a dream & wear really well. LOVE.
BATTINGTON – Monroe Silk Lashes
Ughhh… I really wanted to love these lashes because they are beautiful & they do look great on BUT, & this is just personal preference, I cannot use lashes that have the black band. The band on these lashes is so thick, they feel heavy & look heavy on. Again this is just my personal preference but for me these are unwearable. I like my lashes to look more natural & feel comfortable on. They sure do look pretty though. *shrugs*
SOL DE JANEIRO – Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (0.84fl oz)
I don’t really want to judge this product in & of itself right now because I feel like skin care type products need to be used multiple times to really get an opinion. Pero el aroma de esta crema es delicioso! To me it smells coconutty & almondy & so freakin’ good! I was already familiar with this brand before getting this box, I love their Brazilian Touch Hand Cream & have purchased both of the limited edition Glow Oils which are stunning as well & really well formulated. I’m sure I’ll like this as well.
LUXIE – 3 Piece Flawless Complexion
I love Luxie brushes & am a firm believer that you can never have too many brushes so I’m always more than happy to get brush sets in my boxys. This set came with the precision face brush 660, tapered highlight face brush 522 & the duo fiber powder brush 516. These brushes are super soft synthetic, vegan & cruelty free. Love Luxie brushes, no complaints here & I absolutely recommend their brushes!
JONTEBLU – Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil
Ehhh… I’m not a fan of wooden eye pencils, I feel like I never get really good color payoff when I use wooden eye pencils. This eyeliner pencil was no exception to that, unfortunately. The color is a grayish dark brown, I liked the color but had to do too much to get some noticeable color. Just not worth it in my opinion to irritate my eye for an eyeliner when there are better options for me personally. *shrugs*
GIRLACTIK – Lip Paint
We’ve received this brand in boxys before & I do really like them, the formula is long lasting, has minimal transfer & doesn’t feel drying. This month I received the color Blossom, which is a beautiful matte deep fuchsia with a kind of red undertone. I typically don’t wear anything in the pink family, but this color doesn’t LOOK pink. I can definitely see myself getting some good wear out of this color this summer.
Final thoughts on this box, 2 out of the 6 items in this months box were a miss for me but the remaining items more than make up for it!! My favorites of the box are the Alamar Reine Del Caribe palette & the Luxie brush set.
Total value of this months box is $136, for the low price of $21! Once again absolutely worth it!
