Monthly Goodies: August Edition

What’s Up Swatch Queens,

I finally got my August subscription, there was a delay with my Live Glam, but it’s here now so let’s jump right in. Those of you who follow my blog already know that I cancelled my Sephora Play Box subscription and was in search for the next best thing, not quite sure if I found it yet but I did replace Sephora with the Allure Beauty Box. I found this scrolling through my Instagram feed. Here are the deets it’s $15 a month ( yea I know not too fond of the price either ). But you do get $5 off the first month and I received a free mini eyeshadow pallette from Doucce. 

Here’s What I Received


Skinfix Oil Free Facial Cleansing Cloths –  It’s a 3 pack.  Price $9.99 for 20

OUAI Haircare Finishing Creme – which I will be giving away and how do you pronounce this brand?? Price $24

Caudalie Instant Detox Mask –  Smells great  and love the rosy tint to it. Price $39

Hey Honey Biomimetic Honey Peel Cream – Kind of scared to try this because of my sensitive skin. Price $65

Vichy Mineral 89 Skin Fortifying Daily Booster – I wil be adding a drop of this to my morning skin care routine. I love Vichy skin cleansers so I know this will be great. Price $29.50

Rodial Smokey Eye Pen – Price $21

Doucce Freematic Eye Shadow Quad was created by the editors at Allure. The quad includes a shimmery plum, a matte black, a pearly white and a slate grey which retails for $35 and i got for free. The shades are nice but not my cup of tea. Good thing every couple of months you will receive new shades to pop into your pallette.

Overall I give it a 3 out of 5, love the box for storage but I’m not intersted in hair care products and thought it was a free gift the eyeshadow pallette just doesnt work for me. Hope next month is better or it’s the chopping block with them as well.

Next is my IPSY subscription, this month’s theme is Good Vibes Only. There were 3 different bag styles this month inspired by sparkly summer sunsets. Everyone got one from the 3 designs Peace Love Lipstick, Wild & Free or Good Vibes Only which is the one I got. I like the Bohemian feel of it and I love the gold tassel on the zipper. I also retook the quiz, so that I can get different items. I’m starting to realize that I get alot of mascaras and masks. This month package was a gold color instead of the hot pink, I wonder why???

Here’s What I Received


Naked Cosmetics Translucent HD Finishing Powder – Not bad but I dont use this

Medium Face Contour BrusLih by Crown

The Balm Shadow – Kuwakaribisha

Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash Mascara

Secret Key Nature Recipe Sheet Mask Duo- One in Honey and One in Tea Tree

* They are know introducing IPSY CASH. A beauty rewards program, you get a welcome bonus of $5 and can earn up to 30% cash back when you shop your favorite brands. So I got a brochure along with mRy bag this month with diffrent makeup items, how much the item cost and how much IPSY cash you get back for ordering.

I did take advantage of my welcome bonus and ordered a Royal Blue Eyeliner by Kokie Cosmetics I believe, I eneded up paying 40 cents and will earn $5.60 cash back. Yass!! You have the choice of getting your cash mailed to you by check or sent to your PayPal account.

My Live Glam subscription is last but certainly not least. This month’s theme Summer Sweets. Nothing sweeter than new brushes to add to my collection. Even though this month I only received three brushes, they definitely didn’t disappoint me. I love the rose gold accent and durability of these brushes. I also finally redeemed some points last month so with this order I got the free brush I chose.

 

Here’s What I Received


R7 – Pointed Powder

R39- Tapered Blender

R14 – Round Contour

Please let me know what subscriptions you recommend? I would love to see what other IPSY members received as well.

Untill the next one…

BTW the beautyaddict had like my So Fresh and So Clean post that I headed over to her blog and started following her, I noticed she keeps us informed of beauty sale that are happening and because of her blog I ordered the BH Cosmetics Take Me Back To Brazil Pallette which comes with Smokey Eye Essential – 7 Piece Brush Set for only $19.99, I also got 10% off my order for subscribing to their newsletter. This Haul Sale ends Sunday.

Major Thanks To BeautyAddict
