It’s been a bad month for my beauty box subscriptions, you guys. I’m having such a hard time with this.
First up is the July Beauty Box 5 box. I just can’t decide what to do with Beauty Box 5. On one hand, it’s never GREAT. On the other hand, it’s never BAD. On the other hand (shut up), it’s the cheapest sub box, usually running around $12 a month. WHAT TO DO.
Here’s what I received in my July box:
Coolway Cool Cleanse Shampoo and Conditioner – I don’t know. I’m not one to get all excited about shampoo and stuff. I don’t wash my hair all that often (I know) and my hair looks pretty much the same no matter what I wash it with. I don’t even know what kind I’m using right now – I dump whatever I buy into a giant old bottle with a pump and it’s been so long since I bought shampoo (I know) I don’t even – I just don’t even.
I did try this stuff on a really hot day here and it did have a bit of a cooling effect, which was pleasant, but I’m not going out of my way to buy it.
Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer. No. Stop sending me these. Do not want. Do not want a tan. Do not want a fake tan. Stop.
Brazen cosmetics eyeshadow. I’ve received these before from Beauty Box 5 and I’d buy them again, they’re nice. But this month I received the colour Sizzle and it’s just not for me.
Aveeno Protect and Hydrate sunscreen. Whaaaatever. Sunscreen. It all makes me break out. I wish summer was over.
Next up … I should have put this first in the post. This is the June Ipsy bag:
I don’t have the card anymore, so I’ll just have to take a stab at remembering what’s what. Let’s talk about the good first – the Cailyn eyeliner. LOVE IT. I take terrible photos, but you can see here how it has a built in brush and it’s so TWEE and CUTE and PURPLE and it goes on really nice and LOVE LOVE LOVE WILL BUY AGAIN A+++
The eyeliner is a creamy beige colour and I have no idea what to do with it. It’s …. beige. What? Why would I … I don’t get it, sorry. Don’t like. Next!
NYX Cream Blush in Natural. Natural for what? A NECTARINE? (That’s my way of saying this is way way way too orange for me. Into the swap bayg it goes.)
The lip liner. I’ve heard other people describe it as a nice, soft coral. You know who looks good in nice, soft corals? Not me.
Add a bit of glitter and tada! This is my impression of the morning after look for 40-something ladies after a night out salsa dancing with their 20-year old Cuban cabana boys.
One too many mojitos.
